Full Text of the Pamana JIT Report

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) constituted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan to probe Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members, including his three children, Hussain Sharif, Hassan Sharif, and Maryam Safdar-Sharif, was released today. The summary of the report (paragraph 2 of Volume-I) states that the JIT found the following: Maryam Nawaz was … Continue reading

The Prime Minister’s Defense

Although I believe he is guilty, I think that the case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be difficult to establish, unless his lawyers are unable to prove that Maryam Nawaz is merely a trustee and not a beneficial owner of the properties. If she is one of the beneficial owners, and Nawaz Sharif did … Continue reading

Trying to Understand Civil Disobedience

Some thoughts on what Civil Disobedience is and how it might work in the context of Imran Khan’s call in the Azadi March yesterday.

Duplicity and Lies

Another day, another bomb blast. Whether it is men of the security forces or innocent citizens going about their daily routines, for the second day in a row they are called upon to offer the ultimate sacrifice. From explosives in van at the parade ground inside the Bannu cantonment to a suicide bomber in a … Continue reading

Power Bazaar

Surveys, predictions, analysis, estimates. It is election season and television anchors, newspaper columnists, market research firms, twitterati and the general public are becoming increasingly caught up in the frenzy. Everyone is trying to assess which political party may be able to gain a majority in parliament and form the next government. Rallies, policies, manifestos, alliances and electables … Continue reading

Drones: A Price Worth Paying?

If it fails to do anything else, the proposed Peace March to Waziristan on 6-7 October, under the leadership of Imran Khan, Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, has at least achieved this: it has reignited global debate about the CIA drone program. In my mind, there is no doubt that drones cannot help solve, or even reduce, … Continue reading

Credit Where It’s Due

    Ever since PTI’s massive Lahore jalsa on 30th October last year was followed by an even bigger one in Karachi on 25th December, analysts and critics have tried to explain why Imran Khan has managed to gain so much support in, what appears to be, a relatively short period of time.  When asked to explain why … Continue reading

Diversity is Common Sense

Any corporate leader will tell you that diversity in a leadership team and across any organisation is vital for it to succeed, and a political party is no different. I predict that Imran understands this, whether thoughtfully or instinctively (and his leadership instinct is phenomenal, as is his ability to trust his gut and back … Continue reading

The case of the two Marvis and why Insafians need to polish their online image

Insights from a die hard PTI supporter about Imran Khan, why his online supporters rush into inappropriate responses to criticsm and how the two Marvis (Memon and Sirmed) have evoked (and, sometimes, provoked) different emotions from Insafians. Though I believe strongly in free expression, I have found myself quite incapable of controlling my emotions in … Continue reading

Imran Khan – Genuine Hope or Inane Rhetoric? (Part 2)

 This is in continuation of Part 1 of this post that I published just over a week ago, in response to (and with the gracious permission of) an article by a fellow tweeter, Usmann Rana, entitled Our Inane Leader (Thoughts on Imran Khan’s NDTV Interview). Having addressed Imran’s views on reconciliation and trying to bring extremist … Continue reading
