Should Pakistan get the dancing girl from Mohenjo-Daro back?
Huffington Post - 4 months
One cannot really pinpoint where Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf stands ideologically. Not that it is easier to identify the ideological standpoint of other political parties, with the Pakistan People's Party incorporating feudals into its socialist party and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz trying desperately to project itself as a more liberal and secular party in recent years compared to its right-winged past in the 1990s. On the one hand, the Tehreek-i-Insaaf caters to the youth, who imagine themselves to be liberal saviours of the country but are extremely nationalist and religious in their political outlook. And on the other, the party is in coalition with the Jamaat-i-Islami, a religio-political party, in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and continues to respond to its moralistic requirements regarding laws in the province. Perhaps the dichotomy within the Tehreek-i-Insaaf can be highlighted through the example of Khan at his jalsa in Lahore on October 30 ...

No more excuses for Taliban violence, Bhutto heir tells Pakistan's leaders
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, 25, says prime minister and Imran Khan letting down nation by not backing firm military action Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the youthful heir apparent to one of south Asia's most famous dynasties, has launched a scathing attack on his political opponents who he said must stop "making excuses" for Taliban violence. The 25-year-old son of the assassinated prime minister Benazir Bhutto said Nawaz Sharif, the country's current leader, and the opposition politician Imran Khan, were "letting down the people" by not backing firm military action against the Taliban. "Perhaps they are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome," Bhutto Zardari said, referring to cases of hostages who sympathise with or even assist their captors. "There is no reason why the national leaders, the so-called leaders, should not speak out against people who are murdering our citizens, murdering our armed forces and claiming responsibility." The remarks are likely to further burnish his reputation as b ...

Five great reasons why I will vote for Bilawal Bhutto
The Express Tribune Blogs - about 3 years
Is Bilawal Bhutto Zardari running for the National Assembly? Is he not running for the National Assembly? Do we have to wait till 2018, or a few months? The media really needs to make up its mind…like me! I am all set to vote for the boy in red, black and green – and here are five excellent reasons why. 1. Line up all our current Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) and then take a good look. No seriously, do it right now. I’ve got a handy dandy random selection for you to peruse below! I shouldn’t have to argue my point too far – Bilawal Bhutto is at least five times hotter than our average law maker and ten times more approachable. Sure, all the haters can argue this point, but it’s still a fact. Are good looks and some level of relatability frivolous reasons to vote for someone? If they are, then damn, half my khaandan and friends voted for Imran Khan frivolously. 2. Bilawal is educated. Like, seriously educated – he went to Karachi Grammar School/Froebel’ ...

Banning Bollywood: Reels and rivals

Aslam Dar is a man on a mission. With his long sideburns and leather jacket, he seems to have walked straight off the sets of a Martin Scorcese film. Regardless of the fact that age has caught up with him (he must be at least 82 or 83 years of age), he is committed to the cause of restricting Indian content in order to allow the Pakistani film industry to flourish. Dar has been leading the case from the side of local filmmakers in Lahore, who have vociferously opposed the idea of Indian films and content since Partition in 1947. “The state has never supported the industry, it actually ruined it, but that’s another story. Everything was led on private initiative,” recalls Dar, who entered the industry as an assistant in 1951 while he was still in his early twenties and eventually went on to become a leading director. He says that the issue of Indian films had initially started out as a question of getting equal access to larger markets. But today, it ...

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari makes political debut at emotional rally in Pakistan
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Son of Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari speaks of sacrifices made by family on fifth anniversary of mother's assassination He stood yards from the tomb of his mother, a two-time prime minister killed by Islamic militants exactly five years before, and that of his grandfather, a prime minister and president ousted in a military coup and hanged by a dictator, and told the huge crowd filling the open ground in front of the white domed mausoleum that there were "two powers" in his homeland, "those on the right path and those on the path of lies". On Thursday Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the 24-year-old only son of Benazir Bhutto and the heir to one of the most powerful, famous and controversial political dynasties in the world, made his formal debut in the turbulent and often lethal world of Pakistani politics at an emotional rally in a small village which is his family's ancestral home in the south of the country. "Bilawal has arrived. This was a huge step. It was make or break for him, ...

Lawmaker submits recommendations on legislation for forced conversions
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI: Despite receiving death threats from unidentified people, the provincial assembly’s top minority representative, Saleem Khursheed Khokhar, is adamant that he will continue to work to address the principle issues that face religious minorities, including forced conversions and marriages. At a press conference on Thursday, Khokhar said that he had already submitted his input to the government, in the form of an ‘amended draft act to stop forced conversion of religion in Pakistan’. Ignorance, illiteracy and poverty are why forced conversions and marriages are taking place in the country, said the lawmaker. “Hindu and Christian girls have been kidnapped and then converted across the country, before being forced into marriages.” Khokhar suggested that an FIR should be registered the moment someone reports that a Hindu or Christian girl had been kidnapped, and also that a judicial officer, instead of a policeman, should be put in charge of co ...

The heart has its reasons!

When caught between a conflict, would you stay with the mind, or fly with the heart? When news broke of Hina Rabbani Khar (Pakistan’s foreign minister) and Bilawal Bhutto’s (son of Asif Ali Zardari and Benazir Bhutto, the slain former prime minister of Pakistan) link-up, surprisingly Indians displayed amusement and a very tolerant attitude. Twitter overflowed with indulgent humour and witticisms, while Indian men ribbed each other about having missed their big chance when Hina..

Pakistan looking forward to talks with India in Tehran: Khar
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
TEHRAN: As President Asif Ali Zardari jetted off to Tehran to participate in the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) conference, Pakistan is looking forward talks with India on the sidelines to resolve important issues between the two neighbouring countries. In what is due to be a second meeting between President Zardari and Indian Premier Manmohan Singh this year‚ Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday that the environment between the two countries was now moving towards trust building. She said all previous talks between the two leaders have been “very useful particularly in New Delhi and we hope same spirit would continue in Tehran.” Hina Khar said both sides need to show commitment to move forward. As far as Pakistan is concerned it was committed to moving forward beyond any other issues that might arise between the two countries.

ISI’s interface with terror
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
On July 12, 2012, ex-ISI chief General (retd) Asad Durrani appeared on PTV and expressed his views in his characteristic reductive manner. Durrani cultivates gruffness as his trademark. In this, he is like a predecessor of his, General Mahmood Ahmad: the US is here in the region to stay to get to the oil and gas bonanza of Central Asia; and Pakistan has to deal with this as a threat to its security. While Durrani delivered his rough wisdom, another retired spy boss, Hamid Gul, was in the Long March of the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, riding in an ego-boosting Land Cruiser, seeing cash worth lakhs of rupees being handed around on the way. Hamid Gul has told the international press that he had sent his sons to be trained with the Haqqanis in the tribal areas. Barnett R Rubin in his book The Search for Peace in Afghanistan: From Buffer State to Failed State (Yale University Press, 1995) wrote that, in 1988-89, the 519-strong Afghan shura in Peshawar rece ...
