Everything this government touches, turns into a disaster. This is a big blow to a polio campaign in Pakistan for which more people have given lives than many anti terror operations. It’s impossible to convince parents to bring out their kids for drops after such incidents

This guy goes everywhere and publicly acknowledges that militant groups are operating on Pakistani soil yet he isn’t a traitor or strengthening RAW’s hand. Only Bilawal and Nawaz are guilty of that even though they only speak to domestic audiences/journalists.

We know Iran has suffered terrorism which is from groups operating within Pakistan, PM Imran.

Excellent piece. Can’t agree more. Never thought Tabdeeli Sarkar would be able to fix anything. What it may have unwittingly done however is accelerate the degeneration to a point where a real Tabdeeli alternative is necessary, as Ammar Ali Jan eloquently makes the case below.

Hats off to LUMS students for standing with the janitorial staff when they needed them to. This is the kind of collective action & student-worker solidarity we need to rebuild progressive mass politics in this country.

Imran Khan is always justified with “Jo Bhi Hai” which Is never explained by PTI. Jo Bhi Hai can be more dangerous for this country. I think here, Hamza’s “Jo bhi hai” means a total failure.

I saw that clip. Of course AU made big blunder with delay but it was something IK and selectors both encouraged. Now they’ve learned the hard way it wasn’t beneficial. It’s possible JKT was smart enough to know this but let it happen for internal politics.

Yeah. So that has nothing to do with IMF asking for a change. And there is more to it then this. Asad Umar wasn’t acting alone. He was pursuing same approach that IK and selectors wanted. Now they’ve realised it didn’t get them anywhere with IMF so AU became fall guy.

And btw there is no guarantee HS will get it done either. But they will probably agree to harsher conditionality now after experimenting stubbornness with AU.

IMO—panic. He didn’t get the deal done in Washington and they need the money fast.

Anything and everything also to deflect blame from where it actually lies.

That’s a completely separate point. They may have complained about Jaffrey and Umar. If a guy lies in negotiations, they’d obviously complain. But they couldn’t care less if Pak doesn’t go to them. If Pak wants to then they need someone who deals better. Elementary.

How silly and unaware does one have to be to buy the notion that the IMF wanted to replace Asad Umar as he wasn’t playing ball. IMF couldn’t care less if it lends to Pakistan or not. It’s Pakistan that needs the money.

I’ve heard this silly line from others in Pakistan and it shows just how unaware they are of how the world works. IMF isn’t dying to give Pakistan money. They couldn’t care less if Pakistan has a Fin Min who plays ball or not. It’s Pakistan that needs the IMF. Not other way round

I will take this possibility seriously because of two recent events: 1) Ijaz Shah’s appointment as Interior Minister and 2) the case against Justice Issa, who had really pointed the finger at Ch Nisar in his report on Baluchistan. If they are consolidating, then...

Praised Asad Umar for 8 years, kicked him out in a humiliating manner in 8 months and now campaigning against him and assassinating his character. Guys, that’s PTI for you!

They’ve all gone quiet. All their big talking hit a dead-end! Lol some of them were arguing with you hours before his sacking! 😂

Benazir Bhutto never said she and fauj were on the same page. The IJI was created to deny her her due (Asghar Khan case). She had to accept and compromise on many things. What’s the Kaptan’s excuse?
