PML-N politicians follow Nawaz Sharif example

leave a comment »

PML-N politicians back in the fold after a long hiatus, go all out in their shenanigans.

First a PML-N MNA Haji Pervez sends someone else to take his educational exams.

Then PML-N Provincial Minister Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor involved in a tussle with Customs officials at airport.

Then PML-N MPA Munawwar Gil accused of raping a lady. That “resolved” after she forgave him (shows video of him crying in a police van next to the woman). Report does not mention if he or his familiy used “pressure” to get the lady to “forgive” him.

Then a PML-N MPA (Member of Provincial Assembly) Shumaila Rana steals someone’s credit card (from a gymnasium) to buy jewelry worth Rs. 80,000. The PML-N MPA lady appears in CCTV footage obtained from the jewelry shop. Earlier the MPA had claimed that she was not involved.

Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman – End of Jamaat-e-Islami

leave a comment »

Following PM Yusuf Raza Gilani’s “Historic Speech” announcing a “line in the sand”, Kamran Khan interviews Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman head of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee etc.

However although he has previously given halfway comments between Musharraf (he is critical of Musharraf), and being pro-Tehreek-e-Taliban, here he gives a very pro-Pakistan State comment.

Here we find the FIRST CLEAR delineation of the difference between Tehreek-e-Taliban and Islam.

For the longest time those who have been wise HAVE seen the OBVIOUS linkage of the Taliban to “Fitna” and the history of the “Kharijites” (who Hazrat Ali had to crack down on).

Dr. Abdul Wahab – AlRahman-AlRaheem TV

leave a comment »

Interview of Dr. Abdul Wahab, former head Institute of Business Administration (IBA) and Vice Chancellor, Karachi University.

Makes some interesting points. And does seem to have done some positive things for Karachi University.

However some people claim he has a slightly uncouth way of behaving and is not immune to being slack in “sifarish” or such niceties.

Maybe being street-smart (he mentions his relatively impoverished background) makes him be less nit-picky about such things and survival and making do is closer to his heart.

Although in the interview he suggests an almost total detachment from such pressures.

But such is TV and book reminiscences. They only make sense when you compare to the opposing opinions and challenge the person to get at the truth. And sometimes the “truth” is “right” given the particular thinking of the person i.e. a judgement call at the right time, and it can be “wrong” for an opposing analysis of that same problem.

So the experiences of people close to Karachi University who know the situation better may differ slightly in opinion.
