Ali Dayan Hasan (HRW Pakistan) recants statement against ISI

by ravezjunejo

Ali Dayan Hasan at IPSMM2012

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?

Shamshad Junejo (1927-2012) – The Story of My Grandfather

by ravezjunejo

At London Bridge; July 1998.

Adapted from:  http://accordingtoraj.blogspot.com/2012/07/shamshad-junejo-1927-2012-story-of-my.html

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.

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  Continue reading

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 Continue reading
