Yasin Malik vs. Imran Khan

leave a comment »

Yasin Malik criticizes those who take domestic politics and take it overseas in other countries. Compares the unity among overseas Hindus who while critical of each other inside India, do not distinguish between themselves when they are overseas and lobby for India.

This seems to catch Imran Khan in his tracks as he is in the middle of a tirade against our leaders and taking it overseas.

This is one of the weaknesses of Imran Khan, that while railing (correctly) against the (usually nonthinking) Pakistanis who start acting like they are Western themselves and take their case to the West, he himself allows himself to succumb to that. Taking the domestic politics of Pakistan and taking it to the U.K. “advising” them about the unsuitability of such and such candidate in Pakistan. All the while being unthinking about the impression this creates in people in Pakistan. The “going to London” to advise outsiders is not much different from the behaviour he has criticized earlier.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry upholds Doctine of Necessity

After all the talk of the evils of “Doctrine of Necessity”, and how this “new Supreme Court” will do something new, we have the Supreme Court decision under Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry endorsing the “Doctrine of Necessity”.

Using it to justify the actions that were taken by Musharraf – except that it is chastising him for doing an extra-constitutional step (when Musharraf instituted Emergency), a step that Musharraf himself acknowledged was extra-constitutional in interviews.

Musharraf interview – Mahreen Khan

leave a comment »

Mahreen Khan interviews Musharraf in London on the questions of the day – those accusations being flung in desperation by such “journalists” as Talat Hussain, Hamid Mir, Ansar Abbasi, Dr. Shahid Masood, and the even more “jahil” anchors like the “Bolta Pakistan” folks on AAJ TV (one of them didn’t even know who Pinochet was – which he should have had as a journalist commenting on foreign and world affairs).

Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry policy speech

leave a comment »

After being promised “mehngaai kam karay ga” and a panacea for all problems ailing Pakistan, Iftikhar Chaudhry has been restored (by hook or by crook, with no examination of accusations against him).

However, now that he is in power, if he does something that is good.
