Why I still support Imran Khan | Insaf Blog by Haider Raza

  As I have always said we love to focus on the juicy peripherals. Below the belt comments like Pinky peerni, lambasting him for his recent travel on a charter plane for Umrah etc are symptoms of this terrible malaise we all suffer from.  Sophisticated bhaands maquerading as anchors with overblown egos are having a field day, having a go at him.  One in particular, whom I do...

Time to support Imran Khan unconditionally - Insaf Blog by Afshan

  I contribute my two cents on the current hue and cry raised by many over the distribution of tickets by PTI parliamentary board. Mostly there are no complaints about the ticket allocation in the three educated urban centers i.e Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. Most of the complaints come from semi educated cities , towns and low literacy rural areas of Pakistan where electables have been...

Award of tickets - Insaf Blog by Haider Mehdi

  Imran knows that these elections are perhaps his last and best chance as a political leader to come into power.  Therefore he has to win at all costs to deliver on his promises. I've always maintained that Imran's bigger challenge is not winning the elections, but the subsequent governing of  what Dr. Ishrat Hussain calls "Governing the Ungovernable" the title of his must read...

Not a U-turn - Insaf Blog by Sarah Ahmed

Let us take a step back and end the sudden “U-Turn” debate that has taken the media and its people by storm. The system says that the...

A Health Care Revolution- Insaf blog by Anila Khwaja

  If there’s one institution that more than any other defines a post-colonial, progressive and egalitarianism Britain, it’s the UK National Health Service.  As a beneficiary of it having grown up in England, it is almost impossible to overstate the importance of this service to me personally and my family. This state facility more than any other reinforced the very idea of social...

Mujhay kiyon Nikala - Insaf Blog by Brig Samson Simon Sharaf

  In Pakistan’s street cricket, the boy who owns the bat calls all shots. He is captain, batsman, bowler and umpire; all in one. Pakistan’s disqualified prime minister played his street cricket on Nisbat Road Lahore as all in one. This innate childhood characteristic continues to frame Nawaz Sharif’s present disposition and his cricket with Pakistan’s future.  According to Syed Jawaid...

Stop comparing Nawaz Sharif to Jahangir Tareen - By Majeed Lashari

Both Nawaz Sharif and Jahangir Tareen are undeniably ‘mammoth political entities’. However, the dissimilarities in their characteristics are manifest. Accountability must be across the board, but the media’s viciously synonymous treatment of ‘both entities’, since being disqualified under Article 62(1)(F), is an unfair presumption which will be robustly rebutted through an in-depth and holistic...
