General You are Tubed!

Posted by in Uncategorized

General You are Tubed! by Adnan Gill Like mortals, political parties also go through life-changing events that can elevate their virtually unheard leaders into the stratosphere of prominence and idolization; similarly, it can throw a crown-bearer of a party into the dark depths of ignominy and oblivion.

MQM Fiasco in Karachi

Posted by in Uncategorized

Sadly Pakistan never welcomes the immigrants from India properly and the likes of Altaf Hussein benefited from the resentment left in the hearts of such communities. What happened in Karachi is very sad and shows how fragmented our society is now in Pakistan. To top it all, the unconditional support of the Federal…read more
