Raza Rumi couldn’t stand up to his own ideals and removed my post – by Abdul Majeed Abid

by admin

(The Following post was written by me for Pak Tea House and was even published today. To my utter surprise, there was a pandemonium created after this by people who are mentioned in this post and Raza Rumi, an otherwise reasonable person, couldn’t stand up to his own ideals and removed the post. That was an act of shameful capitulation in face of some “brouhaha” by some soul-less media personnel. I refuse to remain silent

The Friday Times misrepresents the suffering of Pakistan’s Shias and Ahmadis

by admin

We are very disappointed to see misrepresentation of Shia genocide in Pakistan in at least four articles in the current issue of The Friday Times (March 02-08, 2012 – Vol. XXIV, No. 03).

Clearly, authors and editors at TFT have taken lead from their Editor in Chief Najam Sethi who himself was found misrepresenting Shia genocide in Pakistan only a few days ago on Geo TV’s Aapas Ki Baat (Talk Show). The details can be read at the following link:

In addition to misinterpreting and misrepresenting the anti-Ahmadiyya legislation at least in one article by Raza Rumi (discussed next), TFT also published a misleading piece

Tazeen Javed supports Najam Sethi: A racist defending another racist?

by admin

Her article in Express Tribune is an example of dishonest journalism

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?

Moreover, she dishonestly did not include or refer to Najam Sethi’s racist tweet which

Related post: Tazeen Javed supports Najam Sethi: A racist defending another racist

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.

Today (8 February 2012) he was seen using racist, antisemitic remarks against Jemima Khan (Imran Khan’s ex-wife) by falsely and dishonestly alluding to her Jewish

From Qasida Khwani to Political Asylum: Malik Siraj Akbar’s convenient journalism

by admin

Related post: Qasida-e-Husain-Haqqani – by Malik Siraj Akbar

We are cross-posting this interesting post by Baloch Hal editor Malik Siraj Akbar in which he “humbly and respectfully thanks the government of the United States of America” for granting him asylum in a country where in his own words he is sure he will not be judged “by the color of… skin but the content of … character.”

Malik Siraj AKbar is commonly known to have the following peculiar features:

1. Siraj belongs to the Najam Sethi lobby of the non-Baloch “champions” of the

Maleeha Lodhi and her services to the Deep State

Related posts: LUBP Archive on Maleeha Lodhi

Dr. Maleeha Lodhi became the Pakistani Ambassador to the US, from 1994–1997 and then during 1999-2002. Because of deep trust in her loyalty by the Deep State, she was allowed to work as an Ambassador to the US by such diverse heads of the state as PM Benazir Bhutto, PM Nawaz Sharif and General Musharraf. She is currently a special adviser to the Jang Group/Geo, a position she shares with another key asset, Najam Sethi.

Here are some quick excerpts from various resources put together to highlight Dr. Lohdi’s vital services to the deep state.


The United States has long debated how hard it can push Pakistan to attack militant strongholds in the

Najam Sethi’s role in the Balochistan resistance movement of 1970s

by admin

Three time tested civilian allies of Pakistan army

Najam Sethi, according to some of his “urban liberal” colleagues (some of whom are employees/columnists of The Friday Times or Daily Times), is one of the most credible name in Pakistani journalism today. While the myth of Mr. Sethi’s credibility has been effectively shattered elsewhere, the aim of this post is to examine one last urban legend which is uncritically circulated about Mr. Sethi’s valuable services in the Balochistan movement in 1970s.

The legend is: Sethi bravely fought with the people of Balochistan in their struggle against the military
