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?

Pakistan’s urban elitist liberals must not uncritically promote Sherry Rehman

by admin

“My identity is that I am Pakistani and we are first class citizens here, no matter how pushed around we are.” – Sherry Rehman (interview with Huma Imtiaz in 2010)

Intellectual dishonesty in misrepresenting Shia massacres in Pakistan

The aim of this post is to introduce Abdul Khaliq Hazara, leader of Hazara Democratic Party – a pseudo-secular ethnic party through which ISI operates among the Hazara-Shias of Quetta.

He is the same individual who recently gave an infamous interview to Ejaz Haider (now more befittingly known on twitter as Ejaz Haider Jhangvi) in which he had labeled the people he claims to represent as Iranian agents. In Abdul Khaliq Hazara ‘s words, Hazara Shias:

AHRC report on Balochistan is a slap on the face of Pakistan army and its apologists – by Laibaah

by admin

Asian Human Rights Commission has issued a comprehensive statement on the state of Baloch genocide in Pakistan which is currently being carried out by Pakistan army, its various sub-organizations and agencies (FC, ISI, MI etc) as well as jihadi proxy organizations (LeJ, SSP, Jundullah, TTP etc).

In short, Pakistan army has extra-judicially killed more than 200 disappeared persons in Balochistan between August 2010 and October 2011. The federal and provincial governments have played an ugly role in the entire episode acting as either mere spectators or worse, as enablers of such illegal killings by repeating and reinforcing the

Dear readers,

Welcome to my leaks. Yes, I leak….. good information.

Recently, I intercepted this sketch (made by Syed Ali Asghar Rafzi Sabai Irani) that was being circulated by the anti-Taliban liberal fascists!

It is a sketch of human rights activist Wali Jayan, Muslim rights activist Falak Miswaak and their true leaders and supporters, the generals and the judges who have saved Pakistan.

While liberal fascists were trying to malign these Islamopatriots and were trying to subscribe a sinister

Urban liberal elites of Pakistan harass HDP activist Saleem Javed – by Nasir Changezi

by admin

This post is useful to understand the politics of blocking and unblocking on Twitter.

As a Shia Hazara activist, it was painful for me to observe on 2-7 October 2011 how certain urban “liberal” elites in Pakistani media and civil society (namely Ali Dayan Hasan, Raza Rumi and Marvi Sirmed) collectively harassed a Hazara activist (a propagandist of Abdul Khaliq Hazara’s Hazara Democratic Party HDP), M. Saleem Javed, forcing him to mend his ways and discourse consistent with their own narratives.

Please read the following conversation from bottom to top in order to see how urban fake liberals were able to harass and bring an impressionable Hazara activist in line with their own discourse.

Call it a ‘Kufi Shia sellout’ or whatever you want. I’m still thankful to @AliDayan for producing a balanced report on Hazara genocide.

Who knows better than Ali Dayan Hasan the distinction between the lucrative profession of human rights and the actual practice of human rights! A cursory look at his family background and career will tell us a lot about his selective take on human rights and free speech (wiping out mass murder of Hazara, blockade of Parachinar, mass murders in
