This is absolutely hilarious and shows the hypocrisy and dual policies.



I have been Staying Nights with my Troops in Kargil Sector

By Uza Syed • Jun 30th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

Should former president of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf be humiliated the way he is, should we watch in shameless silence when a great soldier is being victimized by selective justice to satisfy the mega egos of some small men like a CJ who was either honored or shamelessly self centered and [...]



Poem By Primo Levi for Us to Ponder

By Uza Syed • Apr 6th, 2013 • Category: Features

“You who live safe
In your warm houses,
You who find warm food
And friendly faces when you return home.
Consider if this is a man
Who works in mud,
Who knows no peace,
Who fights for a crust of bread,
Who dies by a yes or no.
Consider if this is a woman
Without hair, without name,
Without the strength to remember,
Empty are her eyes, [...]

This phenomenon called Qadri represents our needs & desire

By Uza Syed • Jan 13th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

Have to confess my optimism about our future. Things are taking a new turn and for better. Yes, we do and should expect bigger things and hope with better results. In my view, January 14 is going to be the day which would become most significant along with August 14 in Pakistan.

Dr. Tahirul Qadri, Imran Khan and MQM and us : Don’t We All Have Same Agenda?

By Uza Syed • Jan 9th, 2013 • Category: Politics

Dr. Allama Muhammad Tahirul-Qadri outlines the mission “to introduce the culture of true democracy, economic stability, improve the state of human rights, justice and the women’s role in Pakistan”. Is that not what we the ordinary citizens aspire for ourselves and don’t the PTI under Imran Khan and MQM promise us. Is that not what [...]



Imran Khan, like a lizard ,changes his colour again!

By Uza Syed • Nov 8th, 2012 • Category: Lead Story

Now he declared terrorism a “jihad” only couple of weeks back, now TODAY he promises to declare a “jihad” to save Pakistan. Now, who and which Imran Khan is the real one, he keeps changing his color like a lizard like a Chameleon. One wonders at his mental instability and his confusion and I laugh [...]



“Imran is unfortunately a signal failure.” says Shafqat Mahmood!

By Uza Syed • Nov 7th, 2012 • Category: Lead Story

Yes, so did he say and perhaps still thinks, if his brain still functions. What a shame that the same old Shafqat Mahmood, the Information Secretary of PTI, supports the barbarians who he warned us against thus, ” we must also remember that barbarian hordes linked to Al Qaeda also have designs on our country [...]



Faisal might be laud, but what’s it that he is saying?

By Uza Syed • Oct 20th, 2012 • Category: Politics

Faisal Raza Abidi should be stopped from speaking and we from listening? No, it just can’t be allowed, gagging orders are wrong and denial of our fundamental rights as ciitizens of Pakistan.
While it might be right to castigate Faisal Reza Abidi for being cavalier, a bit too cavalier, vis a vis our Supreme Court CJ, [...]



Social Media and its ‘growing up’

By Uza Syed • Oct 19th, 2012 • Category: Politics

On a recent write up on the so called “Bakery Incident” —— Batool, one of the readers here commented that —– “our social media needs to grow up” —— and calls it —– “nonsense” —– and thinks its enough. However, I might just correct the record here. This tragic, wild and sad incident took place [...]
