Polish the Box

Pakistan has always been a home to natural disasters as well as political instability. Since 1947 we have been facing wars, partition, water and food crisis, health issues, terrorism and unstable government. I always remember my grandmother, when we all were able to shift to our separate homes she still kept her wooden box in her mud house although she had been living with us in a much bigger cemented

3 Events That Changed the Course of Pakistan’s History

The following are three events which – in my humble opinion – had a profoundly positive or negative effect on the future of Pakistan. Assassination of Liaquat Ali khan Liaquat Ali Khan was one of the Founding Fathers of Pakistan and the first Prime Minister of Pakistan. He was assassinated in Rawalpindi in in 1951. Although he sided with the United States and the West, he always wanted to be

Shut Up America

All of Pakistan has its eyes focused on Islamabad nowadays. Every single movement of the leaders and the protestors is being scrutinized. Every single Pakistani seems to have their own theory of what’s going on there and has their own opinion on who is wrong and who is right. However, what I want to focus on in this post is one single aspect of the current political crisis… The American

ISIS: Most Recruits Are Westerners

ISIS; the new name of terror, raging massacre and havoc in both Syria and Iraq. Most of us don’t know exactly when it erupted and spread all over Iraq. Some western political analysts believe that ISIS is after child of 2003 American- British invasion of Iraq. The present Deputy Prime Minister of UK, a Liberal Democrat leader, Nick Clegg holds the ex-prime minister Tony Blair responsible of the insanity prevailing

Are you Really Happy? Math Knows the Answer!

Remember when we were kids and had to do algebra? Every kid has once in his/her lifetime asked the question “What’s the use of Algebra?” Some grew up to find the answer, while others – like myself – remained totally confounded… that is until now! Yes my dear countrymen I have finally found the answer!  I have discovered what the real purpose of algebra is! The purpose is *drum roll*

Boycotting Israel in Pakistan

Everybody knows what’s happening in Gaza. The massacre of civilians – innocent men, women and children – by the Israelis and the world’s silence on the matter. I have actually heard some ignoramuses argue that it was Hamas that started all this by firing rockets. Why are the Gazan’s Fighting? Firing rockets? Gaza has been under a vicious siege for years. The people of Gaza have no access to clean

Name and shame the Afghanistan’s Pakistan policy

Pakistan is blamed for the miseries of Afghanistan ever since its creation and today it has become a fashion for our pseudo intellectuals to bash Pakistan in regard to its Afghan policy without questioning the Afghanistan’s Pakistan misadventures since 1947. While intellectuals and opinion-makers from religious right to secular left are critical of Pakistan’s historical stance on Afghanistan over various issues, there seem to be a total consensus inside Afghanistan
