COUNTERING THE SHAITANS

At last count the Peshawar carnage of two days ago numbered 9 teachers and 132 children killed, 141 and still counting.  The incongruous thing is that “Talibaan” translated means “students”, can those who kill our schoolchildren be themselves called Talibaan? They should be called the devils (Shaitans) that they are.  The perverted ideology of such […]

HIGH NOON AT MIDNIGHT

The Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri show, or as my friend Ejaz Haider puts it, the “Lucky Irani Circus”, finally made it to where they wanted to be in the first place and where the Mian Nawaz Sharif regime did not want them at any time, at the “D Square” in front of Parliament. While it was a massive crowd, the numbers do not matter. The emotions of the men, women and children who braved both the artificial and natural odds to follow their leaders to their date with destiny did. Contrary to the govt-fed propaganda most of our more renowned TV anchors were parrotting ad nauseam, the PTI followers remained true and faithful. Not politically extensive nationwide as Imran Khan’s, Tahirul Qadri’s flock in Islamabad numbered far more. Their remarkable capacity to remain resolute and with resilience, all with remarkable discipline, belies political reckoning. Make no mistake, the Sharifs under-estimated Tahirul Qadri’s political nuisance value. Alongside Imran, he may well bring down their govt.

The Rangers “targetted operation” to restore peace to the city under the direction of the Sindh Govt commenced on a low-key basis, a number of ‘suspects’ taken into custody and some arms and ammunition seized. It remains to be seen whether putting the operation into high gear will make an improvement, the lawlessness continues as […]

Finally a Counterterrorism Plan

The Federal Interior Minister’s excellent initiative for reinvigorating the National Counter-Terrorism Authority (NACTA) effective is most welcome, so is the concept of a National Intelligence Secretariat, NACTA has been mostly dormant, mostly due to the obduracy of Rahman Malik. He wanted NACTA to function under his aegis, with good reason NACTA officials feared Malik would […]

The Making of a President

Mamnoon Hussain stands elected as the 12th President of Pakistan but not before quite unnecessary controversy generated by the Supreme Court (SC) . The PML (N) had the required numbers even if PPP had not boycotted the Presidential elections process. The “unconditional” support from PPP’s former ally, the MQM, gave additional insurance. The PPP ruling party in Sindh created history by walking out of their own Assembly.
