Nadeem F. Paracha: Pakistan’s New Media Dictionary, Talpur, Taj, Anjum Niaz

Nadeem F. Paracha: Pakistan’s New Media Dictionary: An abomination brought to life by the Elders of Zion and the illuminati to misguide innocent young Pakistani patriots and mohib-e-watan-Ghazwa-ul-Hind warriors with the help of CIA money, NASA spacesuits, and KFC Zinger Burgers. Most probably has ancient Dravidian Hindu blood running in his veins and is certainly out to destroy the super-duper Muslim master-race.

Irfan Hussain: During the lawyers’ movement for the reinstatement of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, Nawaz Sharif declared at a televised rally: ‘Once the chief justice is restored, I swear upon God that all of Pakistan’s problems will be solved!’ (‘Jub chief justice sahib wapis apne odhay pay lag jayengai, to mein Khuda ki qasam katha hoon kay Pakistan kay saray maslay hal ho jain gay!’ Well, the chief justice was restored some months ago, and as I was away for some of this time, I can be excused for not noticing that all our problems had been solved. But as far as I can tell, we are still struggling with loadshedding; prices have not suddenly come down; and above all, the jihadis seem to have missed Nawaz Sharif’s speech altogether because their terrorist activities have increased, if anything.

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur The terra nullius policy has led to insurgencies and the consequent repeated military actions in Balochistan, Kashmir, Nagaland, Orissa and Mizoram, etc., and also created the urban-rural divide in Sindh. Unless these attitudes change urgently and radically, there is very little hope of avoiding the impending catastrophes that have so far been partly and temporarily staunched with the use of superior military firepower and a ruthless and corrupt bureaucratic machinery.
Farhat Taj: In this regard I wish to refer to one of the points of the joint declaration of a grand jirga of all democratic political parties, intelligentsia and civil society organisations held in Peshawar on December 12-13, 2009. The declaration says,
“All those political or non-political forces that defend the Taliban and libanisation in Pakistan in one way or the other like the Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Tehreek-e-Insaf and other outfits are considered anti-Pakistan, anti-people and anti-Pakhtun by the people of Pakhtunkhwa.”
Anjum Niaz: In the People versus America/Britain/Zardari/NRO case, the Supreme Court has declared the People victorious. Let this be a lesson for Washington and London. Never mess with the critical mass!

Ansar Abbasi; Harris Steels owner Sheikh Afzal in his statement before the SC had accused Babar Awan, Sharifuddin Pirzada, Malik Qayyum and Ali Sajjad to have taken money from him allegedly as bribe to win a case from the Dogar court in his favour. Afzal did not mention Aitzaz but he named certain other actors, including Bank of Punjab employees, ex-chief commissioner Islamabad and a Lahore-based journalist to have taken the bribe. Aitzaz’s name was mentioned by Harris Steel’s director and Afzal’s brother Sheikh Munir while informally talking to a television channel. The NAB sources said it seemed that Munir was prompted by a journalist to speak against Aitzaz.
