PTI Leaders condole the family of Shahzeb Khan who was murdered by Feudal – Shahrukh Jatoi

Shahzeb Khan ProtestA large delegation of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf & ISF visited Shahzeb Khan’s family for condolences – His father shared a very heart touching narration of the tragic incident which truly moved us all.  It truly was a very simple argument, started by one of the servants of Shahrukh Jatoi who harassed Shahzeb’s sister, it unfortunately which resulted in the brutal murder of Shahzeb Khan by a Feudal’s son Shahrukh Jatoi (lived in the apartment across their Shahzeb’s flat)

Express Tribune – Murdered in cold blood: For Sindh’s feudals, Karachi lives come cheap  Shahzeb Khan didn’t even get time to change the clothes he wore to his sister’s valima. He was in his dark grey dress shirt and trousers when four 9mm bullets pierced through his car – a gleaming blue Swift which was an early birthday gift from his parents, and entered his body, eventually killing this popular 20 year old.

The car which had somersaulted after the shooting near Mubarak Masjid in Karachi’s upmarket Defence area on Tuesday morning, now stands silent opposite the Darakhshan Police Station, a sad reminder of what the spoilt young sons of feudal landlords can do if they or their friends are challenged.

After the condolences the delegation proceeded to Greenwich University to participate in a candle light vigil by the students and friends of In memory of Shahzeb Khan

The media seems to be playing down this incident, make your voice heard, make Shahzeb the beacon of light for justice for the hundred of thousands nameless people killed by Urban and Rural feudals of Karachi & Pakistan – today it was the son of a DSP Aurangzeb Khan – tomorrow it could easily be one of us, leaving behind a father and mother mourning the loss of a gun totting feudal on rampage killing over a mere dispute

Join the Protest on Sunday at the Karachi Press Club at 3pm – Peaceful protest ‘Justice for Shahzeb Khan’

Imran Khan’s message to the people of Karachi

Karachi’s solution is no rocket science – with the upcoming elections it is for the people of Karachi to make a very crucial decision and vote these political parties out of power who have militant wings operating under their umbrella



Next Elections the Battle in Punjab is between PTI vs PML & not PPP

PML has been chest thumping a logic that if you vote for PTI you actually help elect PPP into power – a major fallacy being played up in the desperate greed to be in power

The results of By-Election clearly conclude that PPP+PML-Q alliance will be nowhere in the next general elections and its now more of battle between PTI vs PML-N or PTI vs all status quo parties, since PML must also be included into the status quo cluster proudly claims credit for having Zardari Disaster rule Pakistan for FIVE years

NA-162 (Chica Watni):

  • In Election 2008: PPP get 68,000 votes, No PML-Q candidate.
  • In By Election 2012: PPP+PML-Q joint candidate got 20,000 votes only.

PP-26 (Jehlum):

  • In Election 2008: PPP candidate+PML-Q candidate got 27,500 votes.
  • In By Election 2012: PPP+PML-Q joint candidate got 15,000 votes only.

PP-92 (Gujranwala):

  • In Election 2008: PPP candidate+PML-Q candidate got 30,000 votes
  • In By Election 2012: PPP+PML-Q joint candidate got 16,000 votes only.

PP-122 (Sialkot):

  • In Election 2008: PPP candidate+PML-Q candidate got 20,000 votes
  • In By Election 2012: PPP+PML-Q joint candidate got 4097 votes only.

PP-133 (Narowal):

  • In Election 2008: PPP candidate+PML-Q candidate got 44,000 votes
  • In By Election 2012: PPP+PML-Q joint candidate got 22,500 votes only

The bottom-line is PPP is down in Punjab, and the election battle in the upcoming battle is PTI vs PML-N and then its peoples choice to decide if Pakistan needs to change from all these rulers who have destroyed Pakistan to such a horrid situation – shared on Facebook via Awab Alvi

Silence over Holy-alliance of PPP with Qadri’s supporters

PPP partners with Mumtaz Qadri’s Supporters

Politics of the youth bulge – Dr Maleeha Lodhi

Dr. Maleeha Lodhi’s op-ed in The News is worth reading Politics of the youth bulge. A few excerpts from the article are captrued here

Commenting on the changing electoral lists towards a more youth centric vote bank – Change in the next election therefore hinges crucially on voter turnout. This will likely benefit the PTI more than the two major parties. Indeed if the remarkably stable vote banks of the PPP and the Muslim League are to be eroded – or overwhelmed – it is higher turnout by young voters and other first time voters that can swing this.

Commenting on the Urbanization of Rural constituencies – This changing rural-urban landscape advantages the PML-N more than the PPP. But it also opens the opportunity for new urban voters and especially those from the growing middle class to consider the PTI as a serious alternative especially as it seeks to convince voters that the two major parties represent the past, not the future.

In conclusion she writes – The combined effect of these factors and voter disillusionment with the major parties, which are burdened by incumbency at a time of economic gloom, is to inject new, uncertain dynamics into the election scenario. This could produce greater surprises than generally presumed and offer a party that can convince voters it stands for change an unparalleled chance to make a mark.

Gilani’s CNN Interview ripped apart by Faisal Qureshi

Id like to store this interview for posterity – Faisal Qureshi has brilliantly ripped apart the CNN Interview with Con-Air Gilani – read my earlier response – “Con-Air” Gilani Goofs up at CNN our our discussion on Out of Bounds – Shutup Clinton & Gilani the Goof


“Con-Air” Gilani Goofs up at CNN

Watch this last minute of this CNN Interview (4:34) with Prime Minister “Con-Air” Gilani and pray tell me how on earth do we have an idiot like him as our Prime Minister

Pay close attention to the very last question – When Gilani was asked that one out of third Pakistanis want to leave the country due to rampant corruption, injustice and other issues to which he repliesWhy don’t they leave then. Who is stopping them.

At hearing PM’s response quite literally the anchors jaw drops in bewilderment – then I think moments later Gilani realized his goof-up and his constipated facial expression almost wishes he could rewind and plead the fifth.

WORST – Our level of International respect is at such a low that when the CNN interviewer tells PM “Con-Air” Gilani to look her in the eyes & respond (3:09)- DAWGIE does exactly as told – WOOF – WOOF

Another sad moment from the Democracy is the best revenge horror series


Dear PM, While You Were Away!

Yousaf Raza Gillani
Prime Minister of Pakistan

Sub: While You Were Away

Dear Yousaf

I pray this finds you in greatest of health and highest of spirits.

It felt really good that although your trip must have been packed with various activities, meetings, etc., purely in our national interest, you decided to take along 90 most deserving individuals who have worked so very hard for long. Indeed the development which has taken place during your tenor is exemplary and those individuals must have needed a break.

While you are away, we, here, are also having a wonderful time and I thought it would only be fair to keep you abreast so that there is not a moment during your trip that you think about what is happening back home and worry about it.

As I stood waiting for a bus at the stop amidst the routine hustle and bustle of life while the heat was killing me, a bus came to an almost stop and the damn driver decided to press the accelerator. Not his fault! Another bus of the same route had pulled up and you know very well that situation becomes a life and death situation for both the drivers. As a result, three poor women fell while a few, while trying to get out of the way, tripped over the fallen women and got injured. Can you imagine, right then, as I watched, a couple of young men came and pretended to help the women get up while they both had guns and conveniently decided to rob these women off of the very few currency bills they had. You know me well! I just couldn’t just stand and watch. I tried to stop these men so one of them turned around and hit me on the head with his gun. I bled a little and some good souls took me to the hospital. Just a few stitched and I was up and about. But you know what, as I was being treated in the hospital, I felt immediate peace as I thought of you. I could just feel the pleasure you must have felt flying in that very special airplane and then being received in London in about 25 to 30 odd most expensive fleet of cars. I am sure they were air-conditioned! Were they? I have heard the roads are also like carpet and you hardly feel the car being driven. I could just feel you and the 90 people who went with you, and I tell you, all my pain went away. I just thought to myself, those who work hard for me and my nation and serve the country in the manner you and those 90 people have, deserve to be treated like kings. The feeling took over me and I almost forgot all the pain I had gone through.

Bhutto & Zardari’s Corruption highlighted in Raymond Baker’s book on Dirty Money

In continuation of highlighting the stakeholders of Corruption in Pakistan as reported by Capitalism’s Achilles Heel: Dirty Money and How to Renew the Free-Market System His comments on Nawaz Sharif can be found here, while Benazir Bhutto, Zardari & PPP’s reign on corruption is reproduced below [Credit @Aleem_Ashraf]

Corruption and criminality run from the top down, with the political class constantly looting the national treasury and distorting economic policy for personal gain. Bank loans are granted largely on the basis of status and connections. The rich stash much of their money abroad in those willing western coffers, while exhibiting little inclination to repay their rupee borrowings. Pakistan’s recent history has been dominated by two families—the Bhuttos and the Sharifs—both merely tolerated by the military, the real power in the country. When it comes to economic destruction, there’s not a lot of difference among the three.

Benazir Bhutto on pages 77-82: Born in Karachi in 1953 and educated in private schools, Benazir Bhutto graduated from Radcliffe College at Harvard University in 1973. Going on to Oxford for a master’s degree, she displayed her budding political skills and was elected president of the Student Union in 1977. Meanwhile, her father had become prime minister of Pakistan in

1971, was ousted in a military coup in 1977, and was executed in 1979 on charges of conspiracy to commit murder. In and out of prison and house arrest, Benazir was not allowed to leave the country until 1984 but then returned to lead the democracy movement two years later. Her father’s usurper, General Muhammad Zia ul-Haq, was killed in a mysterious plane crash in 1988, which also took the life of the U.S. ambassador Arnold Raphel, and the head of the U.S. military aid mission to Pakistan, General H.M. Wasson. Benazir was elected prime minister that year, served until her ouster in 1990 on charges of corruption and nepotism, was reelected in 1993, and ousted again in 1996, amidst more charges of corruption. During her two terms in office and since, what has come out portrays Bhutto and her husband Asif Ali Zardari as world-class thieves.

Documenting Samjhota Express

For quite sometime the political grapevine has been brewing with the news that there might be a covert pact between Zardari and Nawaz Sharif to soften their political punches upon each other so as to mildly join forces leading upto the elections and also in the process counter the political rise of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

The infamous Go-Zardari-Go slogan that was the main-stay of PML-N’s political rally immediately after the 30th October rally was significantly softened down, morphing into a verbal diarrhea on Imran Khan. Quite interestingly Imran Khan has been exposing this covert alliance between PPP and PML by coining the word “Samjhota (partnership) Express”.

The Samjhota “partnership” is exposed by Nawaz Sharif himself during a rally in Dadu, where he desperately tries to pacify the crowd from chanting the “Go-Zardari-Go” slogan, not once, twice but three time and then jokes that we should actually be talking about “Come-Come”

This should be the start of the expose on how the crooks of the status quo are joining hands to take another swing at ruining this country – People of Pakistan stay alert


Dissecting a ‘leak’ – Mansoor Ijaz vs Pakistan

Brig (r) Shuakat Qadir does a hack job on Mansoor Ijaz going all out in defending the Army, Haqqani & also Zardari. With so much already being piled up against Mansoor Ijaz [Text of Mansoor Ijaz rejoinder] I’m glad this mud-slinging fest has emerged, thats the beauty of media, it exposes liars and lottas

Something smells funny, I’d just like to know the exact text of Zardari’s memo to Adm Mullen & US…. im ready to bet Zardari would have have easily rattled against the Army to save his own ass LINK


Pakistan’s ascension to the UN Security Council: $$$ Cha-Ching! for PPP

Ahsan Butt aka Five Rupee blogger, explains as to why Pakistan's election into the UN security council potentially means more money in the till for Pakistan. There is evidence that UNSC membership reduces the number of conditions included in IMF programs. The size of the loan, however, is not affected by UNSC membership. With a corrupt PPP leadership reduced IMF sanctions could mean more $$$ for Zardari to play with – LINK
