The blasphemy law is not an issue between Pakistani Christians and Muslims. It is an issue between our westernized extremists and religious extremists. Both are wrong, and both are holding Pakistan hostage and both need to be restrained. Outsiders and foreigners, please stay out of this internal debate.

Stirring the hornet’s nest may lead to more instability and insecurity in Pakistan: Concludes a new study by Spearhead Research.
Khalilzad, who is no friend of Pakistan, is a good friend of our President Asif Zardari. Recently, Mr. Khalilzad visited Mr. Zardari in Islamabad. Reports suggest Mr. Khalilzad conveyed a message to Washinngton: Support Zardari to support America. And cut off the Pakistani military. If true, no surprises here.
Finally, Pakistan has a pro-Indian ambassador at the United Nations. He refuses to respond when Indian foreign minister blasts Pakistan at the UN and is so close to the Indian ambassador that other diplomats call them the ‘inseparable twins’. The icing on the cake is that Pakistan’s envoy has supported India’s bid for a permanent UN seat. Tell me this is not a ‘banana republic’ under American tutelage?
The paranoid elected government of President Asif Zardari has been out battling shadows and ghosts, whipping up anti-military sentiment when the military never planned a coup of any sort against him. His problems are with the Supreme Court on legal grounds. To calm frayed nerves, it appears Gen. Kayani agreed to let Zardari and Gilani issue a statement on the three’s commitment to ‘defending’ democracy. Pakistani military could also be bound by ’sovereign guarantees’ given as back as 2007 stating that Pakistani military won’t destabilize a government created through the US-sponsored NRO deal.
Why half a million Mehsuds were turned into refugees in their own country? Why the Wazirs were stopped from selling their fruits in the markets of their own country? Do we need to keep on killing and destroying our own people in the pursuit of this unending and unwinnable war?
He came. He chose to escape. He can’t be trusted again.
Napoleon Bonaparte was correct in his assessment when he termed the British a nation of petty shopkeepers. The traits of that nation have still not changed much. Exhibit A: David Cameron, the news salesman-premier of Great Britain.
The move underscores the changing mood in Pakistan after the latest anti-Pakistan tirades in the United States. Pakistan has been the target of the worst demonization campaign since 2004. This campaign has almost exclusively been waged by US officials, think tanks and the media, with some of the negative coverage coming from pro-US politicians and media outlets in countries such as Britain.
How can we have information and intelligence-sharing with a country that has systematically done and continues to do a hatchet job on our premier intelligence agency and Pakistan military? It is time for Pakistan to sever its links and cooperation with the US.
Since late 2006, United States government, military, intelligence and media have been orchestrating regular attacks against Pakistan, creating a false alarm about its nuclear capability and portraying its premier spy agency, the ISI, as a threat to world peace. Here is a chance for Pakistan to use these documents to argue its own case more confidently.
Already, since 9/11 Pakistan has suffered losses of over $ 43 billion. Even more critical, it has lost 3000 civilians, and 2,550 security personnel as well as over 7000 citizens injured. And no one has tallied up the costs to the environment and the social structures of the country.
Pakistanis received a humiliating reminder today of how weak their nuclear-armed nation has become after eight years of a debilitating and unfair partnership with the United States in Afghanistan.
زرداری : ایک حادثاتی رہنما
امریکہ اور برطانیہ نے اپنی مرضی کے پاکستانی رہنماﺅں کا انتخاب کیوں کیا، اور وہ ایسے کون سے کام ہیں جو محترمہ بے نظیربھٹوزرداری شہید، اور جناب سابق صدر سے نہیں نکلوائے جاسکتے تھے۔ غور کیجیے، اور سر دھنیے، اس کے سوا پاکستانی کر بھی کیا سکتے ہیں۔ لگتا ہے کہ 6 ستمبر 2008 بھی سنہ 1965 کی طرح ہی ایک یوم دفاع کا تقاضہ کررہا ہے۔ مگر اس مرتبہ دفاع پاکستان کی اخلاقی اور نظریاتی سرحدوں کا ہے، جن کے بغیر پاکستان کوئی ٹھوس حیثیت نہیں رکھتا۔
Ironically, in an effort to demonise Pakistan and Pakistanis, they have also conveniently forgotten that none of the 9/11 terrorists were Pakistani or had lived in Pakistan. But such sensitive details are lost on a US Administration that effectively is following the Bush policies on Pakistan.
