  • PTI dollars flow from US stops as major rift blows up
  • WASHINGTON: A major internal rift in the PTI over donations of millions of dollars from the US has almost choked all flow of dollars to the party and Imran Khan has given a shut up call to the Texas medical doctor who was the main coordinator of collecting funds for years.
  • Waiting for Pakistan to happen
  • As PTI prepares for a historic public gathering at the Minar-e-Pakistan, this coming 23rd of March; I want to recall the day I first wrote a PTI column. It was called “Let’s try Imran Khan”, and was published in this very newspaper on May 23rd, 2011. That was the time when the October 30th rally hadn’t happened yet, the term tsunami hadn’t been popularized yet, and not many in the English print media had found the conviction to openly support PTI.
  • VIEW : Et maintenant Imran? — Mehr Tarar
  • Imran Khan is very much here and with an apology to all those who wish otherwise, there is no chance he is going anywhere quietly in the near future
  • Khan’s way
  • Imran Khan seemed to lose it after the Lahore rally of October 30. On that day he shattered the status quo and stamped his brand of idealistic politics in Pakistan. For his political opponents it was the realisation of their worst nightmare. For his supporters, whose socio-economic diversity and depth of political consciousness and resolve had till that point been dismissed as well-meaning youthful naïveté, it was a moment of victory.
  • Is the PTI an establishment party?
  • The established political parties suspect that Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is the creation of the establishment. The charge was not levied when IK and his party were struggling in wilderness. His views on ghairat, Taliban and corruption were seen to echo the establishment’s line, but the nexus between the two was never seriously posited. It is only after IK’s huge success as a crowd-puller, that the charge has been levelled repeatedly and vociferously. Interestingly, the most vigorous accuser is the PML-N, itself a creation of the establishment. Quietly, the PPP agrees and sits pretty in watching the two ‘establishment parties’ undermine each other. Though weary of the PPP’s failure to govern, talk shows continue to project it as an anti-establishment party. Some experts go to the extent of making the claim that the party is not allowed to govern because of its anti-establishment history.
  • Fauzia Wahab: a few memories
  • LAHORE: It was hot and humid 2010 evening, when the late Fauzia Wahab had invited this scribe over an Iftar dinner at Lahore's Governor's House. While she was fasting, this correspondent found Fauzia sitting on the prayer mat, reading the Holy Quran, going through its literal translation and interpretation with utmost devotion. “Don’t laugh at me. I am no mullah, but we need to know what Allah has directed us to do. Alas, none of us wishes to believe that we all have to die one day and revert back to the Creator with all our misdeeds,” Fauzia Wahab had remarked while wrapping up the prayer rug shortly before the Maghrib azan.
  • Measuring patriotism
  • On May 25, the Supreme Court of Pakistan suspended Farahnaz Ispahani’s membership of the National Assembly on the grounds of dual citizenship (of Pakistan and the United States). A three-member bench, headed by the chief justice, observed that Ispahani could not participate in National Assembly proceedings on account of her dual nationality. And just yesterday, as a follow-up,
  • The PTI argument
  • My interest in the PTI is academic in nature. Well sort of. Actually as a PTI supporting columnist I often find myself in a strange position of being answerable for many PTI actions. “Your Imran Khan has sent a letter to a JD rally?” I would be accused. “Your Imran Khan has refused to share roof with Salman Rushdie in India” I would be smirked at. “Your Imran Khan is calling us liberal scum...” long whine.
  • VIEW: Imran Khan: cricket legend and rising political star — Ishtiaq Ahmed
  • It is very pleasing to note that Khan is respectful of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Abul Kalam Azad, even when his admiration for Mohammad Ali Jinnah is boundless Friends and readers have been urging me for a long time to express my views on the rising star on the Pakistani political horizon — cricket legend Imran Khan. I have been his admirer ever since he began his campaign for the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital, where so many poor people in need are taken care of, when society in general and the state in particular has abandoned them.
  • Usual suspects, unusual perceptions
  • The federal cabinet has witnessed yet another numerical expansion. Qamar Zaman Kaira is back on the job that he should never have lost in the first place. A blue-blooded jiyala and annoyingly brusque at times, he is nevertheless a pedigreed political animal and thus gets away with the grudging respect of many.
