PML-N Must Stay Away from MQM

By Salman Mugsi • Oct 28th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

As usual, after leaving one ally MQM has already started looking for yet another because it cannot survive without a powerful companion and hardly without being in government. Contrary to the common perception, instead of PTI, MQM is warming up towards the ruling party in Islamabad, the PML-N.
Muttahida Qaumi Movement has now realized that they [...]



PTI and MQM - Pyar Tu Hona Hi Tha

By Salman Mugsi • Sep 22nd, 2014 • Category: Politics

The deal between Imran and MQM is that Imran would give Karachi to MQM and would remain satisfied just 1 or 2 seats from Karachi. Imran would also keep his mouth shut on Altaf Hussain. In return, MQM will let Imran do show of power in Karachi whenever he wants, and would also support him [...]



PTI Involved in Karachi Target Killing to Malign MQM

By Salman Mugsi • Sep 11th, 2014 • Category: Politics

After failing to create anarchy and chaos in Islamabad and Punjab, PTI and their handlers have decided to go beyond those regions and also create nihilism and mobocracy in sensitive city of Karachi. Karachi is already prone to violence and misrule and is ideal for such adventure. PTI is hoping to get multiple benefits for [...]

By Salman Mugsi • Aug 31st, 2014 • Category: Politics

Within the span of just 18 days, it’s 3rd time that Javed Hashmi, the president of PTI has left the side of his leader Imran Khan in sheer anger and has left the protest, which has now turned violent. While Imran sticks to the his demand of Prime Minister resignation and keeps inciting his workers [...]



Zardari Also Supporting Imran and Qadri for Midterm

By Salman Mugsi • Aug 22nd, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

Yes, it’s all about midterm elections. Pakistan Peoples’ Party hasn’t forgotten or forgiven Nawaz Sharif for his agitation during their era in the wake of restoration of chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chuadhary. That is why Imran Khan has also implicated Iftikhar Chaudhry as one of the riggers during last elections.
Zardari implemented governor raj of Salman [...]



Mera Long March Gawacha

By Salman Mugsi • Aug 14th, 2014 • Category: Politics

Punjabi leaders fighting for Punjab’s throne have once again shown rest of the country that they don’t belong. Who matters is who lives on G.T. Road from Lahore to Islamabad. Pushtoons, Sindhis, Baloch, Tribes, Kashmiris, and people of Northern Areas are mere steps for these Punjabi elite to climb the stairs of rule in Islamabad.
Interestingly [...]



Altaf Hussain’s Double Game

By Salman Mugsi • Aug 3rd, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

With his neck drawing very close to the Scotland Yard noose, Altaf Hussain knows that his only hope is the establishment of Pakistan. If Pakistani agencies handover two killers of Imran Farooq to UK, then it’s curtains for Altaf Hussain. Altaf is doing everything to appease the establishment, though everyone knows how much both like [...]



Imran and Nawaz - Show Maturity

By Salman Mugsi • Jun 30th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

There is no need for Nawaz Sharif to stop Imran Khan from doing long or short marches, and there is no need for Imran Khan to stage the long and short marches. If both take their affairs to the parliament, then Pakistan as a whole will thank them. If they cannot do that, at least [...]



PTI’s Cold Shoulder to Qadri

By Salman Mugsi • Jun 24th, 2014 • Category: Politics

One wonders why Imran Khan didn’t join Tahir ul Qadri yesterday in Lahore? I believe if Imran Khan had joined Qadri at airport yesterday with a public procession, and started heading towards Islamabad by G. T. Road in same tempo,  then both PTI and PAT could overthrow PML-N government before even reaching Gujarat.
The dreadful handling [...]



Why Sympathy With Altaf Hussain?

By Salman Mugsi • Jun 5th, 2014 • Category: Politics

Money laundering and murder are a crime in any civilized society, and Britain is certainly a one. I am surprised over the timid and coward reaction of Pakistani media after the arrest of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain in London by the Scotland Yard. That shows the terror of the MQM.

This is the [...]
