A candid conversation with an urban journalist & TV anchor, Faisal Qureshi

by admin


According to Wikipedia probably written by himself: Faisal Qureshi (born 16 August 1964 in Karachi) is a Pakistani entrepreneur, electrical engineer, and a founder chair person of a non-profit organization Loose Ends Pakistan, anchor person of several TV talk shows, currently including Bang e Dara on News One, Loose Ends on Business Plus and Ankahi on Samaa TV, and formerly Breakfast at Dawn on Dawn News, and founder chairperson of the high IQ society Mensa Pakistan, along with being the ex-Chairman of P@SHA – the Pakistan Software Houses Association.

….

FQ is one of those urban-centric bloggers/journos who remain harsh on politicians but soft on Pakistan’s military establishment. As a matter of rule, not unlike other urban-centric, fake liberal bloggers of Pakistan (known as Fake Civil Society – FCS), FQ has never done a program on continued massacre of the Baloch, Hazaras, Tooris and other oppressed groups of Pakistan by the ISI-TTP-SSP network.

FQ has his own blog at http://www.faisalqureshi.com where he has posted the following tribute to Pakistan army:

A tribute to the armed forces of Pakistan

Reema and I hosted the Yaum-e-Shuhuda (Day of the Martyrs) event in Karachi this year. It was not an easy task since last year the event was hosted by the great Moin Akhtar (may he rest in peace). We decided to make two short videos as a tribute to the armed forces, particularly those who have become “shaheed” for Pakistan, particularly in this miserable war of terror.

I’m sharing these videos a day after the Indian rhetoric that they can now launch “operations” in Pakistan to fight terrorism. We need to come together as one nation to let our enemies know that any violation of our honor and sovereignty will be met with great force.

I will try to translate these in English as well, but in the meantime I urge you to share this page extensively with all those who understand Urdu. Particularly with the Indians who seem to be on a drunken high after the Osama Bin Laden incidence.

The same person (FQ), however, considers Pakistani politicians as drunken thugs:

Politicians or Drunken Thugs?
http://www.faisalqureshi.com/politicians-drunken-thugs-rowdies-pakistan/

It is said that those of low morals should not get drunk as they show their real character once intoxicated. Unfortunately, this applies to almost each and every one of our political parties. When they are in alliance to rape the nation they stand by each other as brothers in arms. The moment their affiliations fall apart they start threatening each other to expose their crimes and sins.

Further, FQ writes in defence of Pakistan army’s intelligence agencies (ISI/MI etc):

http://www.faisalqureshi.com/pakistan-america-u-k-politics/

The criticism on Pakistan’s army and intelligence agencies on Osama Bin Laden’s death, is nothing more than ludicrous. It is obvious that a very calculated effort is being made to create a division between every institution of Pakistan. But what else do you expect from your enemies?
Unfortunately, the two leading political parties of Pakistan, PPP and PML-N, are aiding and abetting this atrocity against Pakistan. Their political disputes are no more than a pre-planned act of treason against the sovereignty of the country.
I can safely say that any political party or leader who does not speak or stand for unification and solidarity in Pakistan is clearly a traitor of this great nation.

Well, I must feel myself lucky enough to have a candid conversation with Faisal Qureshi today on Twitter.

Context:

This is how our strange conversation started on Twitter:

First I retweeted the following tweet by FQ:

Laibaah Laiba Ahmad Marri
RT @faisalqureshi When the people in power do not use their power to stop murders, they are to be qualified as murderers

Then I sent the following tweet to him:

Laibaah Laiba Ahmad Marri
@faisalqureshi Similarly when journos do not name & shame ISI-TTP-SSP killers of Baloch, Hazara, Tooris etc, they R 2b qualified as killers.

FQ’s response and the exchange which ensued is not only entertaining but also extremely educating and enlightening. Enjoy!

  1. seriously laibaah u did this ?? ive been the part of this interestin debate in the tail but was it really worth writin a blog for. u r writin abt a person whom u only know through wikipedia that too after startin this debate w/ him. truely unjust n leme say cheap on ur part. somebody disagreein to u doesnt mean u should start a propaganda against him. Faisal Qureshi is 1 of the true patriotic journalists i know of n wots wrong in he being pro army n anti politicians? wot hav politicians given to this nation compared to the billions of sacrifices n services by the army? come on ma’m have a heart and face the reality.. i didnt expect you bein so constricted .

  2. 100% agreed with Uzair.

    Laibaah you should reconsider the your observation about FQ.

  3. all of the conv, you took it wrong, to interpret you need a mature mind in proper geometry.
