Sindh Assembly honors Michael Jackson with a Minute of Silence

PAKISTAN-POLITICS-ASSEMBLY-SINDHAs I write this blog post I have been at a loss of words, I was shocked to read at the PKKH website that today [Saturday 27th June] the Sindh Assembly kicked off its session with a minutes silence in honor of Michael Jackson, yes you read that one correct ‘the moonwalking maestro – Jacko’ was honored with a minutes worth of silence, the logic, the rationality behind sending this message from our official public offices truly befuddles the daylights out of me

PKKH: Just when you think our so called ‘elected representatives’ can’t embarrass us anymore, they tend to prove us wrong. The Sindh Assembly this morning held a minute’s silence for Michael Jackson’s sad demise.

This news comes in close proximity to the controversy where the Presidency has allegedly removed the picture of the founding father of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah and replaced it with the various Bhutto-Zardari portraits

I could not help stop myself from laughing at the passion with which Dan Qayyum expresses his frustrations at watching the Sindh Assembly bow down to Michael Jacksons tune for a minute of silence.

The point isn’t whether Jacko was a global superstar or that he had reportedly converted to Islam – Michael Jackson had absolutely f*ck-all to do with Pakistan, its history, its culture, its language, its people and its politics. This is the Provincial Assembly of Sindh, Pakistan, not the California State Assembly. Or are we now officially the 51st state? What next? Will Muttahida’s gun toting ‘activists’ and PPP Jayalas forcefully shut all businesses in Karachi for a shutter-down strike next time Britney shaves her head? Or will we have a national day of mourning when Paris Hilton’s little pooch dies?

Here here Mr. Qayyum, what will these politicians think of next, it seems that they are truly trying to alienate a country to a point of no return, and I believe all these politician are to be blamed across the board – Gaad have mercy on us all

    @Dr Jawwad

    "this is the problem with Prophets(pbut) you can have millions of scientist but hardly we had 2 prophets at the time."

    How convenient. But unfortunately for you, that means nothing these prophets claimed can be verified.

    "it was not a horse,it was a “burraq”. this matter comes under the category of “mutashabihat” which means telling about unknown object through the examples of a known object."

    Oh! Riiiiight. That makes it so much more believable. NOT. So we're to think that it was a 'buraq' but not exactly a horse, and it was an unknown object. So we know next to nothing about this but HAVE to believe that Mohammed used it for his return flight to Heaven. Sorry Dr sahib, you're losing it here.

    "[God] can do things beyond human imagination.(at least it is a faith of muslim shared by jews and christians,hindus and budhists)"

    Exactly, it's faith, not truth. Thanks for admitting as much.

    "if there is piles of evidence then why it is a theory? why it is not a established scientific fact? and what are the proofs?"

    Heh, thanks for making my point for me: Darwin theorised on the evolution of species, and scientists have since been collecting data non-stop that comes out in support of it. I've come across no archaeological or historical find that negates evolution. And still, scientists are choosing to continue researching and finding evidence which will simply make this concept stronger. There are larger philosophical and pedagogical reasons for still calling it a theory, but rest assured, it's fact. Any scientist worth his name would tell you that. Even Muslim, Christian and other religious scientists are now agreed that evolution is fact; they only dispute the very origins of it and whether a higher power is controlling the process.

    "1)prophets are most humble group of people….why….because this is a demand of the job,they were chosen for."

    I don't know on what planet claims to have the absolute truth and the word of God can be called "humble". Look up the word.

    "because it is more like a faith than a theory. because secular societies don’t want to listen any thing against this theory. because repulsion agaisnt religion is behind this theory"

    Bullshit. How is it like a faith when every year, hundreds of fossils further reinforce the concept? Has there been ANY evidence presented that a god created all this? Didn't think so.

    You don't deserve to have "Dr" tagged to your name.

    now this is tricky.

    my arguments were specifically in the favor of the "belief" that man is created by Allah(swt),human is not the end result of an evolution. Which is the disputed area of over all evolution theory

    no one denies the undisputed and innocent areas of evolution which talks about evolution of one spece to the other.

    confilict arises when darwinists assumes that humans are evolved from other animals like other interspecies evolution. there are many scientists who reject this idea because despite of so many high tech geo-archeological surveys and so many discoveries from dinosaurs to the flies of the jurrasic era till ice age mammoth. no single genuine missing link could be discovered yet. what the world discovered is the fraudulent handicrafts of Darwinists like:

    Java man(discovered by Dutchman Eugene Dubois in 1891)

    Nebraska man(Nebraska in 1922)

    Orce man(southern Spanish town of Orce in 1982)

    Piltdown man(Found in a gravel pit in Sussex England in 1912)

    kindly produce one genuine missing link which is verified by anthropometrists and anthropologists and considered genuine in scientist community.

    kindly do not stretch this discussion from disputed areas of evolution to the undisputed and innocent areas of evolution.

    kindly stick to the point which is:

    "Whether the man is a creation or the end result of an evolution"

    best regards

    hello doctor, stop useless debate its all theater put on for Yokels, Burki is among them. He's a Yokel.

  • Danial Burki |

    One simple counter-question: how can you accept evolution from one species to another and not accept that humans are part of the same framework?

  • dr jawwad khan |

    at this peak of civilization with the era of scientific achievements and information overload,how can any one ask this question? the simple answer is that:

    humans are not like other creature ever exist on earth.

    @guy-sir!

    congratulation for your new blog.i hope it will be big opportunity to read some valueable research.

    Hello! I am a professional lawyer and nothing to do with the art in my stuff but I wanna say something. HONOR TO THE KING OF POP! His tremendous talent and spectacular hard-working was never seen before. We had the biggest artist of all music history and some people resist to recognise this. Some os 50 or 60 can say Beatles, or Elvis or maybe Rolling Stones or Frank Sinatra but the world said Michael Jackson with 800 millions album copies sold out. NEVER SEEN BEFORE! and it all continues selling it…I would like people who didn't really knew him..know him…and know WHY was the best really the best but till that day they would have been reading and listening about him so much time that the other artists could be seen as small as they are against him.

    Honor to the King of Pop

    Music lacks something..
