Censorship, book bans and Malala: exposing closet Talibans

From the Blog beenasarwar [image: malala book]Recently, an editor in Karachi told the well known defence and policy analyst Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa “not to bother writing anymore about the Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) or any other militant outfit, religious party or even the cricketer-turned-politician’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI).” She was told not to even mention TTP and affiliated organisations.

From the Blog newsNintendo Co Ltd: The company has given few clues on its new management strategy, due to be announced on Thursday. One thing, however, is certain - it will have to burn through a lot of its cash pile in the years it takes to try again with the Wii U's successor, according to Dawn.

Understanding the Greater Cause

From the Blog islamicspiritualismIt happens most of the times when our desires are dragging us mad, we are working hard to make things practical, but it seems going towards a blank end. We are constantly praying and working hard but out put does not seem the way we want to be. This is also another form of blessing. Few days back I also suffered this situation. This is not the time to get demotivated, depressed or to go negative against the cause we are working for. This is actually another type of out put which we are not able to understand for the time being. But things go positive at the time destined for them. Actually nature is the best planner for the creations. Things which we are desiring or working for are some times not suitable for us at that specific time. But we want them to happen at that time.

Favourable Trend of Online Shopping in Pakistan

From the Blog telecompk Online Shopping in Pakistan has been soaring to new heights; with more e-commerce websites and a higher population of people online, this is one trend that is here to stay. There are many factors that work for online shopping and many that work against online shopping in Pakistan. Let’s briefly go over the various socio-economic factors that work for and against Pakistan online shopping industry. *Growth Factors:* 1. *Convenience*: Online shopping has become huge around the world for the simple factor that it is extremely convenient. Since individuals spend on the average 3-4 hours online, it is only logical that people are able to shop online as well. Online shopping cuts the travel costs and time spent travelling.

How can we teach the Quran?

From the Blog blog Listen to the audio first (it's in Urdu): I recorded this while in a car – gotta love the SoundCloud app! [image: :)] Some observations and perspectives: - Quran is pure guidance. - It's primary guidance comes in matters of "deen" ("deen" is inadequately translated as religion… it is not even a "way of life"… it is, to the best of my limited understanding, a guideline for interaction with God and Humanity. It is a way of life but only in the abstract sense.) - Sources of Islam are only and only two: the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him. - Like everything else, Quran needs to be studied, not just read. You need repetition, you need questions that come directly from your reading of the Quran. And you need teachers whopakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 8644325797798455102 Pakistani Blog Posts

My Relocations Through Spammy SMS Texts

From the Blog nubealsSometimes I think these spammy SMS texts allow me that chance to have a reality check. It has now been more than a year that I've moved out of Karachi but all the spammy texts I received in this period were mostly for services and products based in Karachi. More recently, however, it seems that the spam SMS operators have figured out that I am not in Lahore and the texts I receive now are more for products and services that are Lahore based. I still remember when I arrived in Karachi from Singapore, like, 4 years ago and reactivated my Lahore number and started using it in Karachi. Back then, there were fewer spammy texts, but because of the number format, perhaps, they figured I was from Lahore and so most of them were for Lahore. It's almost as if these spammers knew how long pakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments

From the Blog jadesmoke04 *Freeman Bare Foot Peppermint + Plum Foot Scrub With Tea Tree Oil* has a sweet peppermint scent which is quite soothing after a rough day.

Respect is key to get into Self

From the Blog islamicspiritualismIn the spiritual journey, one has to stand by his mentor. In Asian stream, this mentor is know as PEER. This mentor knows all the hardships of way, all the tasks to be accomplished, all new horizons opening ahead and all the negativity coming across to let the follower go away from his path of truth and his journey of self. This implies to a teacher-student relationship between mentor and his follower. But there is a remarkable difference too. In spirituality or Sufism, this relation carries everything because mentor himself has to give you what ever you are destined to get. So the follower is to stand up and be counted when ever comes the tie to be counted. Respect is of extreme importance here.

Living through another age of partition

From the Blog odysseuslahori On a cold and foggy morning in January 2010, my friend Talwinder Singh, the short story writer from Amritsar, drove me to Buttar Khurd, a short way off the Grand Trunk Road en route to Jalandhar. We had come to see old Charan Singh. Even before he entered the courtyard where we sat, we could hear the tap-tap-tap of his cane in the paved alley outside. Small of stature and a little hunched over by age, the man had large milky eyes that had not seen the light of day for 20 years. He himself was, so he said, 83 that year. As a 20-year-old constable in the district administration, he was assigned as guard to a Sikh revenue officer in Kasur. When the line was drawn with Kasur falling to Pakistan and mayhem began, Charan and his officer crossed the BRB canal and made for the new Indipakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments


From the Blog shahabesaqibGeorge Parker is one of the most notorious con men in American history. He became infamous for repeatedly selling New York's public landmarks to unsuspecting tourists. His personal favorite was the Brooklyn Bridge, but he also routinely sold Madison Square Garden, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Statue of Liberty. In fact, he was so convincing that tourists would often attempt to collect money after they made a "purchase" and had to be removed by the police! He would sometimes pose as the original owner's grandson or set up a fake office and seem legitimate. He was so incredible at forging documents that even educated travelers thought they were real. Parker was eventually caught and sentenced to life in prison, where he was extremely popular among the guards and criminalpakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 1796378751056658634 Pakistani Blog Posts

Colette on Writing

From the Blog beanbagtales *"We cannot paint a beloved face without passionately distorting it - and who speaks willingly of the things that belong to real love? But we can catch and hold - with words or with the brush - the crimson flush of dying leaves, the green of a meteor against the blue night, a moment of dawn, a catastrophe...Pictures which of themselves have no sense or depth, but which we invest with meaning or sharp foreboding - they bear forever the stamp of some particular year, mark the end of some mistake or the culmination of a spell of prosperity. For that reason no one of us can ever swear that he has painted, contemplated, described in vain". * *( My Mother's House - Colette)* January 28th was Colette's birthday.

Huge Bath and Body and Sephora Haul!

From the Blog fatimasalim As some of you might know, Dubai Shopping Festival is currently going on, and a lot of stores are on sale! Bath and Body Works had a sale that was so hard to resist, therefore I took full advantage of it! Normally, I don't shop for clothes during sales because all the good stuff sells out and sizes are an issue. Products like lotions, hand washes and candles are different- who doesn't like stocking up on them? I also went to Sephora and Harvey Nichols- and bought some makeup because I have a shopping problem. I went twice to Bath and Body Works. The first day I went to Bath and Body, Sephora and Harvey Nichols. I bought- 2 hand washes, 2 body washes (for men), lotion, and 4 hand sanitizers. This lot, I sent back to Pakistan for my brothers and sister in law though. In Sephopakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments

Single Step to Self

From the Blog islamicspiritualismThis is not some conventional piece of writing or some motivating factor. Single step to self is just a thought, a moment which initiates a journey towards self. Thoughts getting streamlined, desires getting burnt and making things positive towards a change add to it. Human beings have been blessed with enormous energies. But these are never explored. If we start a journey of self or in other words spiritual journey, we would be requiring something to trigger up this process. This thought has been categorized as Single step to self. Any thing innocent can be step to self. It makes things clear enough to be observed, to be taken into account and finally making way towards spiritual journey. pakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 3143139331634681799 Pakistani Blog Posts

The long wait in Xinjiang

From the Blog odysseuslahoriEver since I first heard the name back in the mid 1980s, I was mystified by it: why should Kashgar, a few thousand kilometres from the nearest ocean, have a hotel called Seamen's? It was actually Seman (with a nasal ending) which ended up wrongly spelled in some shoddy guide book and thus passed into tourists' usage. There are actually two of the same name, both multi-storeyed, facing each other across a wide street. Taking a room in the older one which has the old Russian Consulate in its backyard, I called Keyoum Mohammad of Kashgar Mountaineering Adventures with whom I had corresponded from Lahore. The old quarter of Kashgar as seen from the north. Strangely, pictures dating back to the 1880s do not show a town on a high mound, but one flush with the flat ground.

But the thing which start making a difference in our life is the point or that specific moment when these thoughts start getting streamlined. This is a point where our ideological basis had been firm enough to hold specific horizon for us, to make things clear enough to make decisions for ourselves, to make the life something cherish able and above all to make us unidirectional.

Worst of all, we become callous to the lot of others, assuming that if they aren't doing well, if they aren't perfectly happy, it's not because they're poor, oppressed, or unemployed but because they're not trying hard enough.

Inglot Gel liner #77

From the Blog cenamzbeautyblogHello everyone, so I am back with much awaited review of Inglot Gel Liner in black #77 which I bought few months ago, didn't want to write about it that time cause I wanted to see how long does it take to dry out, so here I go :) My first thought was the packaging, it was too small and too cute, catch of the eye was it's plastic container unlike MAC which uses glass containers. On the cap it has a silver seal which keeps the air away unlike my wetnwild gel liners their seal comes off and I had to struggle with it everytime I wanted to place it back on. (both of them dried out in no time) This is how much I've used in about 3 months and trust me when I say I use it every day!!.. Here's a clear picture. It hasn't dried out in 3 months I feel its still fresh, the staying power pakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 465155523398405931 Pakistani Blog Posts

Is Pakistan Ready For Long Sustained Anti-Terror Campaign?

From the Blog riazhaq The year 2014 in Pakistan began with 27 deadly terrorist attacks in the first 20 days, claiming nearly 200 lives, according to South Asia Terrorism Portal. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for most of the attacks. In response, Pakistan ordered air-strikes against TTP targets in Tirah Valley (Khyber Agency) and Mir Ali (North Waziristan) in FATA. This was the first time in several years that the Pakistan Air Force jets pounded TTP hide-outs. Source: South Asia Terrorism Portal While I believe the air-strikes were needed to send a message to the terrorists, there was no word from Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif as to his strategy to deal with the TTP terror campaign that has so far claimed over 50,000 lives in the last few years. The strikes raise several pakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 7323421907678517771 Pakistani Blog Posts

نوسَر بازوں سے ہوشیار رہیئے

From the Blog theajmals جمعہ 17 جنوری 2014ء کو جب میں اسلام آباد میں تھا تو میرے ساتھ ایک دلچسپ واقعہ پیش آیا ۔ سوچا کہ اسے عام کر دیا جائے تاکہ سادہ لوح جوان کہیں نقصان نہ اُٹھا لیں ۔ سہ پہر کے وقت مجھے بتایا گیا کہ باہر کوئی شخص آیا ہے ۔ میں گھر کے دروازہ سے نکل کر گیٹ کی طرف روانہ ہوا ۔ وہ شخص مجھے دیکھ کر بے تکلفی سے گیٹ کھول کر میری طرف چل پڑا ۔ میں نے قریب پہنچ کر سلام کیا تو بولا اجنبی "آپ نے پہچانا نہیں ؟"۔ میں "نہیں" اجنبی "آپ کہاں سے ریٹائر ہوئے تھے ؟" میں "کیوں تمہارا تعلق واہ سے ہے ؟" اجنبی "میں کریم داد کا بیٹا ہوں" اجنبی نے بال کالے اور داڑھی مہندی رنگ کی ہوئی تھی اور اُس کی عمر ساٹھ سال یا زیادہ تھی ۔ پاکستان آرڈننس فیکٹری میں ایک ڈرائیور کریم داد تھا ۔ اُس کا بیٹا اتنی زیادہ عمر کا نہیں ہو سکتا تھا ۔ لیکن اصل بات یہ تھی کہ کیا یہ اُسی کریم مداد کی بات کر رہا ہے ؟ اگر ہے بھی تو میرا اُس سpakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 4531409388006669185 Pakistani Blog Posts

Peace in Our Time

From the Blog pakteahouse Saad Hafiz [image: images]Between phase of strident nationalism and armed conflict, India-Pakistan relations have mostly remained in deep freeze from which there still appears to be no hope of recovery. Historically, bilateral ties have been dominated by shrill jingoism, xenophobia and a quest for absolute justice at the expense of national interest and political realism. National leaders, instead of pursuing peace, have generally found it easier to propagate hawkish positions, unwilling to risk charges of appeasement, defeatism and selling out. Despite the mutual animosity, the two neighbours, unable to change geography, are destined to live together and to continue their turbulent negotiations, interactions and engagements. As both countries continue to acquire expensive kipakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments

Disappointments with my friends

From the Blog united4justice I really hate myself while writing this but need to write it to give an honest view point. I am really disappointed with almost all of my Shia friends who support this war. I thought there must be some good significant number of Shias in Pakistan who don't blindly toe the line of that Jerk Khemenei or Seestani but here it seems its not the case and almost all are determined to push not only their selves in this more war mess and resulting terrorism but also others too. Almost all my Shia friends cannot see the fact they are being used as a fuel for this war by Pakistani and other pro-war establishments including their beloved Khomenist regime in Iran. I also criticize sunni or deobandi or ahl-e-hadith or other sects and social classes for the hate based crap some of their leadpakistanblogs.blogspot.comRead Full PostComments 8882783821180206760 Pakistani Blog Posts
