What lessons has PML (N) learnt in their third tenure? By now, after having three military rules in Pakistan, no one is left with an iota of doubt that martial law or the military rule is not at all a solution to the problems of the country. Currently different schools of thought are prevailing in Pakistan: let the military rule the country if they have to do every bit (a very minimal percentage of the population), military should not poke its nose at all and let the civilian handle the issues themselves, come what may (anti armed forces, mafias and…

“Truth is a gift, a burden, and a responsibility which I mean to share. This is the story you don’t want to hear when you ask me about Pakistan. But this is what you need to hear.” The sexual harassment in South Asia and especially in Pakistan arises from the value system of a patriarchal society that looks upon women as ‘sexual prize’, ‘commodity’ and ‘upholder of honour’.

In the past, I used to be a person who was very open to discussion, defending my views regarding everything but nowadays when you talk about surroundings, mostly people discuss politics ( all thanks to Imran Khan for that). In these times when our discussions have become very polarized and people are hard to convince, I have quit discussing politics around me. Yesterday while sitting with friends, one of my friend who is not an Imran Khan fan (which is perfectly cool and we have to accept this fact that not everyone is a PTI supporter around you) argued that…

Preamble: Privatization of public enterprises and organizations is one of the hotly debated and contentious economic issues facing Pakistan today. While some term it as a solution to Pakistan’s economic woes, others simply paint it as an attempt to sell national assets for peanuts. The reality perhaps lies somewhere in between. Public enterprises are those that are owned by governments and thereby the public at large. They include government owned/controlled corporations. Privatization is a somewhat controversial phenomenon in Pakistan. It is commonly defined as the transfer of ownership of state owned assets from a government to a non-state entity. It…

It was general elections 2008, when I became interested in politics. Athough i was interested in none of the parties contesting. In my childhood, i had just seen my father sitting before television and counting on winning seats by Sher (Lion- PMLN) and Teer (arrow- PPP) before military dictatorship of 1999. Only Highlights of reign of Pervaiz Musharraf which are bright in my mind are Laal Masjid incident, Operation against Taliban and the movement in favour of Judiciary. After ruling for almost 8 years, finally, Pervaiz Musharraf could not stand against union of lawyers and democratic forces in wake of…
