I speak for the judges

December 14, 2007 at 5:31 PMAdministrator

I am not a judge. Yet when I read in the newspapers that the federal government has notified that 24 judges of the provincial high courts, who did not take oath under the PCO, have 'ceased to hold office' with effect from Nov 3, my heart went out to them and also to the judges of the Supreme Court who await the same fate.

The Battle plan

General Headless Crown: Sir Ji, the battle plan is all drawn up. It has two key elements. An element of complete surprise, so that military historians will talk about it, a long time after they have forgotten the Entebbe raid. And an element of concentrated, sustained and devastating firepower to ‘shock and awe’ the enemy into submission, similar to the Baghdad invasion. More...

Tanscultural Dialogues III

A Job for Shortcut:  

 

President No Clue (Jr.): Hi Shortcut, I am afraid, Citibank are in trouble because of the sub prime loans, and may not be able to have you back.  

(Fmr.) Prime Minister Shortcut: Surely you can’t let this happen, Mr. President, to an American who is doing his patriotic duty?  

P: I have to say Shortcut, the boys in Langley and the Sate Department had to work pretty damn hard to get you a Pakistani passport, a suitable life history that would stand up to the background checks and installing you in Islamabad. And what have we got in return? Rising anti-Americanism, the Taliban juggernaut ready to reach Kahuta in two weeks and the high value targets still at large. And now we have to find you another job.   More...

GB: Have you taken leave of your senses? You were asked to play ball with Musharraf and you are asking him to step down? 

BB: You don’t know Mr President, he in thrall of this vicious terrorist organisation, Q League. These enemies of democracy attacked my welcome party in Karachi, crushed my rally in Rawalpindi and killed my historic long march uprising in Lahore. They are more dangerous than Al Qaida, Abu Nidal and Abu Sayyaf combined. They are headed by the Chaudhries of Gujrat, a town more dangerous than Tikrit. There was no choice Mr President.   More...

No Orator Like Galloway

November 20, 2007 at 11:19 AMAdministrator

Galloway on Pakistan 

It is seems bit surreal to hear a Scottish politician give a speech about Pakistan and do it better than any Pakistani politician, past or present. But then George Galloway is no ordinary politician. He has been an outstanding spokesman for the cause of Palestinians, and against the war on Iraq, and a fearless critic of Israeli oppression

 His logic is flawless, his force of argument overpowering, his cadence mesmerising, his passion is real, his ridicule merciless. He can enthral the audience and make the 'Stones of Rome rise and mutiny'.

This is an amazing video, Galloway, the Scotsman, with his great sense of timing and occasion cheered by a Pakistani audience in London; catchy slogans raised by the audience in Urdu, Punjabi and English; followed by an excellent spoof interview by a deadpan young man. It shows you how the world has changed.

Also see the indomitable Hina Jilani and the glamorous Jemima.. More...
