Are Ahmadis Heretic or the scapegoat?

By A Khokar • Aug 1st, 2014 • Category: Lead Story

Ahmadis are restricted to practice religion in Pakistan or putting across their claim that Mahdi and promised Messiah (as) who was prophesied by the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) has since arrived. This is a tall claim and they also carry a banner with their slogan “love for all hatred for none” which seems very [...]



How PML-N Can Tackle PTI Here

By Dr. M. A. Khayal • Jul 31st, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

It’s an impasse between the egos of Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan. Both are adamant not to blink and both are refusing arrogantly to back-off. Neither of them is caring right now about their political future or country or their respective governments in Islamabad and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province. If not stopped, they would drag the [...]



PML-N Trembling - Azadi March Coming

By Faiza Iqbal • Jul 30th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

Mamay and Chachay of democracy are trying their evil best to spread the propaganda that Tehrik-e-Insaaf wants to topple the democratic system and acting as pawn and puppet in the hands of establishment. These Goebbels of today are hatching conspiracy theories as the 14th August draws near.
Anyone in any civilized society knows very well that [...]



NAWAZ SHARIF’S PRONENESS TO SELF-DESTRUCTION

By Mahboob Popatia • Jul 29th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

On 17 April 1993, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his address to the nation accused President Ghulam Ishaq Khan of hatching a conspiracy against his government and declared: “I will not resign; I will not dissolve the National Assembly and I will not be dictated.” His differences with Ghulam Ishaq Knan had reached a point [...]



Sudden Rise of Snakes in Islamabad

By Dr. Hassan Isfahani • Jul 28th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

I will resist the urge to talk about ‘other’ snakes of different kinds in Islamabad and will focus on real, less venomous snakes. Margalla Hills in Islamabad are famous for being replete with the snakes; some very poisonous and some harmless. So much so that the very name of the hills MarGalla is derived from [...]



14th August: Pakistan Hostage Day

By Haris Hashmi • Jul 27th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

Imran Khan will take Islamabad hostage on 14th August and Quaid-e-Azam might turn more violently in his grave when Imran will call his destructive march as ‘Azadi’ March. Quaid didn’t know that his struggle for Azadi was not enough, and it would need the Khan from Bani Gala to get real ‘Azadi’ some 67 years [...]

You may survive in Pakistan by going against the will of Allah and America, but there is no chance of your survival if you even give a hint of rebellion against Army. No sir, in Pakistan that is not possible for may be next few decades if we manage to remain on the map of [...]



Quest of a Tyrant Savoir!

By Rai Azlan • Jul 25th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

I will not start with how Pakistan came into being; I will not mention that a nation strived for a separate piece of land because they did not want to live as a suppressed minority in that country. And I will certainly not touch the “separate story” that after the Promised Land was acquired by [...]



I am the Royal Prime Minister of Pakistan

By Rizwan Nasar • Jul 24th, 2014 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look

My name is Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and I am the elected (really) Prime Minister of Pakistan.  My passion is traveling and I have gone on 17 overseas visits since I took office last May.  I am such a great leader that Pakistanis allegedly elected me with heavy mandate the third time over.  Pakistanis are [...]
