In the following interview, Pakistani-Canadian journalist, Tahir Aslam Gora conducts a candid interview with another Pakistani-Canadian, Tarek Fatah. The latter needs no introduction and has provided LUBP with a candid interview as well. Author of “Chasing A Mirage: The Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State” and the “Jew is not my Enemy”.
In the following interview, Tarek Fatah delves deep into the reasons as to why Pakistan is facing such myriad problems. His understanding of the military-judicial establishment should be required viewing for our deeply compromised media. We applaud his efforts in this interview and wish that he also included included the third and very important pillar of the establishment – the journalists.
Minor quibbles aside, this is a bold and searing indictment of the military establishment that dominates Pakistan and which is now using the judiciary to undermine yet another democratically elected government.
