Siddiqui: Harper acting like an elected dictator, Asif Ezdi, Ayesha Khan, Sharif brothers

Passengers grounded as U.S. digs out from record snowfall

Siddiqui: Harper acting like an elected dictator Consolidating executive power; eviscerating the legislative branch; operating under extreme secrecy (by keeping an iron grip on information, through endless court challenges and censoring/redacting documents); riding the coattails of the military and questioning the patriotism of political opponents; and forcing out public servants who refused to fall in line.

Asif Ezdi A nation’s history includes all those past events which have shaped its character. The more recent they are, they more they are likely to have impacted on the present. Pakistan is a country with a long and rich history. Like the history of other nations, ours too had its ups and downs, its triumphs and setbacks. We need to remember all of them. (Asif is so right ~~t)

Ayesha Ijaz Khan Recently I examined a timeline of terrorist activity in Pakistan from 2001. What quickly became apparent was the pattern of violence. Initially, attacks concentrated on the Christian community, when few of us paid heed. This was followed by attacks on Shia Imambargahs. Next, influential community members, who could have curbed terrorist activity by mobilising public opinion, were taken out. This was followed by attacks on politicians who spoke out against terrorism and army officers fighting against it. And now, no Pakistani is safe. A trip to the bazaar or a prayer in a mosque could well end up being a fatal activity.

Sharif brothers clarify news item A spokesman of PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has contradicted the news report appeared in ‘The News’ giving impression as if there are outstanding bank liabilities against Sharif brothers. Clarifying the position, the spokesman said that Sharif brothers were not the defaulters of any of the banks of Pakistan and the issue discussed in The News pertained to the settling of financial liabilities through handing over of valuable properties to the high court under mutual agreement with the banks.
