It is with a heavy and Nihari addled heart that I write my latest news roundup. In this week, two very sad developments have happened. First of all, Pakistan’s two ghairatmand parties, PML N and PTI are fighting. PML N is rehashing liberal fascist propaganda that was discounted by me on Pakistan Press over a year ago. I am referring to this post Imran Khan’s Real (ty) “Investments” – Zulfiqar Ali http://criticalppp.com/archives/222545
A Tale of Two Awesome Ghairatmands, Hazrat Iftikhar Chaudhry CJ and Hazrat Imran Khan PTI – by Riaz Malik Hajjaji
No threat to Pakistan from Taliban ideology: Imran Khan
LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman Imran Khan has defined the insurgency in Pakistan-Afghanistan Pushtun dominated areas as a “fight for Pashtun solidarity against a foreign invader”, insisting that “there is no threat to Pakistan from the Taliban ideology” and that he will completely pull out of the war on terror
PTI Vice President Ejaz Chaudhry attends Difa-e-Pakistan rally in Karachi along with sectarian terrorists
Urgent: Please sign and widely distribute this petition: Ban the Difa-e-Pakistan Council
According to news report, PTI senior vice-president Ejaz Chaudhry spoke at the Difa-e-Pakistan rally in Karachi (12 February 2012) as a formal representative of Imran Khan and PTI, thus reconfirming the widely known fact that PTI is in close partnership with banned Jihadi-sectarian militant organizations. Ejaz Chaudhry congratulated the DPC Jalsa participants on their noble cause (defence of Pakistan against enemies such as India, USA and Iran) and also assured them that Imran Khan himself will participate in the next DPC rally. He claimed that the spirit of change had spread through the country and how Pakistan needs to be “cleansed of America”.
Two key components of the ISI-sponsored Difa-e-Pakistan are: Jamaat-ud-Dawa (aka Lashkar-e-Taiba) and Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (aka Lashkar-e-Jhangvi). The SSP is banned in Pakistan and internationally, while JuD is
For an example of biased, dishonest journalism, read Pakistan blogger Tazeen Javed’s op-ed in Express Tribune in defence of Najam Sethi’s racist tweets: “Calling out the real bullies”
The article is an unsuccessful attempt by the Najam Sethi fan-club to repair Sethi’s unrepairable image.
In her article, Tazeen did not mention Sethi’s habit of passing casual racist remarks. Previously it was Pashtuns, now it is Jews, next Hazaras perhaps?
Najam Sethi is known for making racist remarks during his weak, candid moments. A few weeks ago he was caught unguarded on Twitter when he frankly stereotyped the Taliban militants as representing the Pashtuns of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
A Shia Muslim scholar Allama Jawad Naqvi exposes the Saudi-ISI plan to revive a repackaged version of General Zia-ul-Haq Group (Religio-political fascists) in Pakistan
In this post, we present a thought provoking analysis by a Shia scholar on the re-emergence of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) with the help of Pakistan army (ISI in particular) and its Jihadi-sectarian affiliates (e.g., Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (aka Lashkar-e-Jhangvi), Jamaat-ud-Dawa (aka Lashkar-e-Taiba), Jamaat-e-Islami etc. Given that the speaker in this video (Allama Jawad Naqvi) offers an analysis based on his particular ideological and political point of view, we do not necessarily agree with all of his arguments, however, given
Imran Khan and his political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) suffered its biggest blow yet as one of its main leaders from Balochistan resigned, alleging that the party was toeing the line of Pakistan’s all powerful military establishment.
According to news reports, Central Vice President of Imran Khan’s PTI, Shahid Qazi resigned from the party blaming the central leadership of ignoring the province. Shahid Qazi, who is also a member of PTI’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) and its core group, also tendered his resignation from the basic membership of the PTI.
I have been fan of Imran Khan since 1991, the time when I could not even spell his name in English. After winning the cricket world cup, he became the blue eyed boy of the nation. Later on his philanthropist work for building cancer hosptial and later building an educational insitution of a high standard made him even more popular for many like me in Pakistan. His political views, however, were confusing for people like me specially his
As the tail wind of the Hazrat Imran Khan Tsunami, I want to inform you, my millions of readers, of the latest media attacks by the liberal fascists on Imran Khan. We all know that in Pakistan, the media is dominated by liberal fascists like Kamran Shafi, Farhat Taj, Dr. Taqi, Nadeem Paracha, Fasi Zaki and Dr. Siddiqa. These are
The following statement by Dr. AQ Khan has been recently published in several newspapers:
Instead of criticizing Zardari and Nawaz, Imran must suggest solutions
ISLAMABAD: Dr Abdul Qadeer, a renowned scientist, has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) neither possesses a team nor a party, hence can’t bring about a revolution. Talking to a private TV channel, he said that in other provinces there was anarchy and killings but the Punjab Chief Minister was being targeted over a natural calamity, dengue. Without an appropriate leadership, slogansread more »
Aha, Liberal fascist Kamran must be crushed. See how great patriot and defender of Pak Fauj, Ejaz Haider has decontructed this falsehood of a BBC report in his typically brillliant, “Journalism or Jabberwocky” http://www.pakistantoday.com.pk/2011/10/journalism-or-jabberwocky/
In doing so, he has shown us that he is not only a great journalist but is also a master at English literature when he alludes to Lewis Carrol in the title. I salute him, Mosharraf Zaidi, Omar Waraich, Ayesha Tammy Haq and Cyril Almeida for coming out openly as PTI supportors on
There is consistent and irrefutable evidence of Ejaz Chaudhry’s (Vice President and Incharge Youth and Students Affairs of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) links with sectarian, terrorist organizations.
Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP aka LeJ) Lahore chapter has recently announced a religious seminar on 15 November 2011. Amongst the list of speakers is also the name of Mr. Ejaz Chaudhry, Vice President of Imran Khan’s PTI.
پاکستان تحریک انصاف کے چئیرمین جناب عمران خان کے نام ایک کھلا خط
میں انصاف کی طالب ہوں
جناب عمران خان صاحب
سب سے پہلے میں پاکستانی قوم کے لیے آپ کی نمایاں خدمات پر آپ کو تہ دل سے ہدیہ تحسین پیش کرتی ہوں. کرکٹ کا عالمی ورلڈ کپ ، شوکت خانم ہسپتال اور میانوالی میں ٹیکنیکل کالج آپ کے ایسے کارنامے ہیں جن میں پاکستانی قوم نے آپ کی بڑھ چڑھ کر امداد کی اور آپ نے ایمانداری سے اس امداد کا حق ادا کیا.
لیکن میرے اس خط کا موضوع آپ کی سیاست سے متعلق ایک امر ہے جس کا تعلق میری ذات سے تو نہیں لیکن پاکستان کے مجبور، مظلوم لوگ ضرور ایک معاملے میں آپ کی توجہ کے مستحق ہیں.
لاہور، اسلام آباد اور پشاور میں اپنے مختلف جلسوں اور تقاریر میں آپ بار بار ایک لفظ استعمال کرتے ہیں چینج یعنی تبدیلی –
Apparently, PML-N’s government in Punjab (led by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif) is deeply worried because of a potent possibility that PTI might slash significant right wing urban votes from PML-N in the forthcoming elections in 2013. Therefore, the Punjab government is resorting to unfair tactics to deprive PTI of its legitimate right of political activities and public meetings.
A recent example is how Shahbaz Sharif deemed it fit to impose certain conditions on the PTI’s forthcoming jalsa (30 October, Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore) which are out-rightly unfair and ridiculous. One of such conditions bars
Imagine comparing Imran Khan to that Hindu scocerer, Bhutto. Imran Khan has the support of the educated people and is talking about Islamic democracy. Bhutto was popular amongst a few dozen mud people, the sweaty illiterate RAW agents of Sindh who do shirk dancing at shrines in their spare time. Unlike Musharaf who is atleast a brave Ghazi warrior, Bhutto sneaked in through the back door and had the audacity to think he could do something just because a few dozen sweaty, stinking jahil mud people were hynotized to vote for him. Had it not been for these bloody civilian Bhuttos, Imran Khan would have swept the polls in 1996 and 2002. For that matter, imagine comparing Imran Khan’s
