Bloody beginning of Pak elections

It wrote,” If there were any doubts that Pakistan still remains vulnerable to terrorism, the past week has put an end to them.” It is polite but irrefutable admission that willy-nilly terrorism is allowed to remain entrenched in Pakistan. Three separate attacks in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa and Baluchistan have claimed 150 lives and over 200 persons are wounded. Among the dead are Awami National Party leader Haroon Bilour and Baluchistan Awami Party candidate Siraj Raisani. Notably both of these political par...

Straight Talk
K B Jandial Politics is a strange ball game; yesterday’s alliance partners holding hands together are today’s enemy upholding bizarre ‘terror warning’. Both PDP and BJP were tied in ‘unnatural’ alliance for three long years till 19th June, 2018, when the BJP suddenly pulled the rug under the feet of ‘unexpecting’ Mehbooba Mufti despite a perception that Modi was driven mainly by her. Obliquely, the ‘event’ has resemblance with a similar ‘coup’ in 1977 when no other than Mehbooba’s father and astute politician, Mufti Mohd Sayeed had pulled the rug under the feet of Sheikh Abdullah who had returned to mainstream politics only two years ago. Muftis (then father and now daugh...

Sordid end of coalition government

When BJP decided to be the partner in a coalition government with PDP after previous election, two things could become transparent. One was that the BJP betrayed no qualms of conscience in deviating from its cut and dried nationalistic policy as is generally believed. Seco...
