2 6th April, 1984 –Blackout

History of Pakistan, from the very outset, has been blemished by grisly incidents including infamous resolutions, unwanted wars and silly coup d’états.

Due to this monster, the […]

Ahmadis are the most peaceful community on earth. Do you think I exaggerate by calling them ‘the most peaceful community on earth’? If so; please see […]


The Phenomenon of Celebrating Qadri

The phenomenon of celebrating Qadri continues to be confusion in the heads of us Pakistanis. May you argue by your delusional optimism that majority of the people in Pakistan condemn the assassination of Salman Taseer, yet the factual figure would remain unchanged. The truth, though bitter, is that most of the Pakistanis, instead of condemning […]
