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

NA-122 – Playing it Forward

That Aleem Khan is controversial – under shadow of corruption allegations, NAB settlements in his past – is not disputable, which makes him less than ideal for PTI to put forward as a candidate. Particularly in a seat that IK contested from & that symbolizes and has come to stand for a struggle against the corruption that … Continue reading

Tough Choices

Mr. Speaker, there are strangers in the house! The joint session for parliament was called to discuss the situation in Yemen, what Saudi Arabia and its coalition of ten (or is it eleven?) wants from Pakistan and what we should do. Instead, the focus was on PTI, which ended its seven month boycott of the … Continue reading

The Fire is Lit

I don’t think there’s anyone left who hasn’t seen this video of former Senator and Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, Asif Zardari’s trusted right-hand-man, and another Member of the National Assembly (MNA), Dr Ramesh Vankvani were booted off PIA flight PK370 for holding up 220+ passengers for nearly two and a half hours while they arrived late … 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

Dawn of the beast

Originally posted on PTI Supporters:
As I started walking towards my house, it was nearing dawn. The stars were busy in their usual dance and not a cloud wavered in the skies, but in the sudden of few minutes the breath-taking scene turned into the worst nightmare. The crackling of thunder sent a numbing sensation…
