Things appeared too uncertain until General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani made it absolutely clear in his address at the GHQ on the occasion of the Martyrs’ Day on April 30 that “Allah willing, General Elections would be held in the country on 11th [...]

We all know, media whether print, electronic or social, plays an instrumental role in carving out public opinion in any democratic system. In the past, we have seen how media jolted even some of the world’s most powerful governments by publicizing their scandals and leaking out state secrets. Occasionally media’s role has also come under [...]
If a wealthy DHA aunty is gunned down, the whole media and DHA goes crazy, but if hundreds of MQM workers and candidates are assassinated during the election campaign and before that, nobody utters a squeal. It is this differentiation which forces the loyal and patriotic leaders like like Akhtar Mengal, Bugti, and Altaf Bhai [...]
Blindness separates people from things; deafness separates people from people. On May 11th women were not allowed to vote on many polling stations in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI), Jamaat-i-Islami (JI), Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N), Awami National Party (ANP) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) signed on the accord to barring women [...]

It’s sad to see the upright, honest, and clean person like Imran Khan falling for this [...]
Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf’s tsunami has only come in the posh areas of the Lahore and Pindi.

Besides it wasn’t a thumping majority there too, as the mandate was shared by many parties. Anyways, it’s [...]

Is this Naya Pakistan?
Is this Change?

Money was talking and you could buy elections for few lac rupees.
Winner was someone else and election was won by someone else.
Rigging in my election is loss for the whole of Pakistan.
We will protest and we will give [...]
As an Indian I found the recent killing of ANP, MQM and PPP supporters by the Taliban or TTP as a form of vote rigging in favour of Nawaz sheriff and PTI and especially as the ISI General Hamid Gul was supporting Imran Khan.
Now that the elections are over, I like to know some answers [...]

Obviously out of my limited knowledge I put forward the definition I could produce [...]
