A few days ago I came across an article written by Robert Fisk published in The Independent. The article was titled “If Alawites are turning against Assad then his fate is sealed”. Interestingly, there was nothing in the article to
If you are still mourning over the loss of the PMl N-PTI-JI-Supreme Court-Sipah Sahaba-backed candidate, the Independant Bhosan, dry your tears like the Righteously Guided Super Journalist, Hamid Mir did. Two days ago, Hamid Mir sahib was upset that his prediction of a Bhosan victory did not
[Rehman] Malik had flown into Karachi where he addressed some of the Indian and Pakistani delegates of the groundbreaking first Pakistan India Social Mela 2012 (SMM2012) that took place on July 13-14, organised by Peaceniche [sponsored by the US Consulate]. It wasn’t a press conference or an organised media event, but the media turned up in full force – those that got wind of it, that is. An
The newly appointed Director General of the Inter-Services Intelligence may have attained an understated and unsung victory for his intelligence agency considering the recent and highly surprising statement by Human Rights Watch‘s Pakistan head Ali Dayan Hasan that the ISI may not be involved in the Saleem Shahzad murder AT ALL!
Mr Hasan made this statement at the recently concluded India-Pakistan Social Media Mela held at a local hotel in Karachi. He was invited as a speaker for the session titled ‘Negotiating complexity: human rights and social media.’
Apart from his condemnation of ‘trolls’ (read his notoriously egotistical irritation on being questioned by critics in general and Twitter activist @Laibaah1 Marri in particular) on social media, Mr Hasan said “My position and HRW position is clear. We never say that he was killed by the ISI. Who killed him has to be determined by an independent probe.” Could we be correct in considering this latest statement by Mr Hasan a recanting of the previous allegations that HRW has made, all but implicating the ISI in carrying out the Saleem Shahzad murder?
My maternal grandfather (referred to as ‘Nana’ in South Asian languages) Shamshad Ahmed Junejo, Advocate, Sindh High Court, passed away on March 26 this year. Nana was survived by his three sons and two daughters, the youngest of whom is my mother. Both his wives died when he was still alive.
Since a very young age, I had learned that my Nana had lived a very interesting life. A member of a Sindhi freedom fighter’s organisation in his school days, he went on to become a successful lawyer and a local leader of the PPP at the invitation of its founding Chairperson himself, and many more interesting people in between! I shall now put down here all that I can remember about my Nana and his life that I learnt from him.
These rememberances have been reproduced chronologically.
