What else does the ISI have in the roster for Hazaras of Quetta? – by Liaquat Ali Hazara

by admin

The perpetual attacks against Shia Muslims of Balochistan are particularly hurting Quetta’s Hazara community because it is relatively easy to identify and attack Hazaras due to their particular physical features.

In response to Marvi Sirmed’s plea of innocence

by admin

Pakistan’s self acclaimed liberal, columnist and rights activist Marvi Sirmed has written an article in Express Tribune (18 June 2012) to prove that the alleged list of Malik Riaz’s beneficiaries is fake, and that along with other “credible journalists”, her name too does not deserve to be in that notorious list.

While I have no means to confirm or challenge the authenticity of the Riaz Malik’s beneficiaries list, in this post, I seek to offer some quick comments on Marvi’s article which is

Does CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry not own a house?

by admin

On several occasions, Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and his several promoters and fans have stated that he does not have a house nor the resources to buy one. Well he owns one in Quetta Cantt, and has rented it out.

CJ Chaudhry is known to keep grudges, and could go very low when he gets an opportunity. The entire Balochistan high court is aware of this trait of his, where he has served as a justice and then eventually as CJ Balochistan High court. So when he came back after being restored, the entire Balochistan High court judges resigned, which is not a joke. Not one, not two, but the entire lot resigned. Why? I leave that to your imagination. This did not happen anywhere else, Why?

One has to give him credit for his journey. Being born in the house of a Police Hawaldar, having

Noted “liberal” Raza Rumi (Director of ISI-sponsored Jinnah Institute) continues his hate campaign against Pakistan Blogzine. This time, he chose an interview to the Herald magazine as the platform to vent his grievance against us.
