    A comment on Imran Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri’s sit-ins in Islamabad – by Pejamistri

    Back in 2007/2008 when the Lawyers or Judicial Movement was in full swing, there was a novice but vibrant social media. It was very exciting campaign against the mad dictator of his time and that too in a new and novel way. There was a mushroom growth of social media blogs and websites all full with […]

  • Criticism of Tahir-ul-Qadri and the loss of sense of proportion – by Pejamistri

    Criticism of Tahir-ul-Qadri and the loss of sense of proportion – by Pejamistri

      With the arrival of Chabi wala baba aka Qaid-e-Inqlab Shaikh-ul-Islam Professor Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, twitter was a abuzz with the “liberals” and “seculars” tweets showing how much “liberal” and “secular” they are. From “پیشہ ور دلال” like Nusrat Javed to my dear friend Zaalan everyone was so eager to prove their liberalism and secularism […]

  • Magnificent delusions and current peace talks with Taliban – by Pejamistri

    Magnificent delusions and current peace talks with Taliban – by Pejamistri

    “Magnificent delusions” is the most appropriate term for describing the psychology of Pakistan military, also known as establishment by many. Husain Haqqani, the former ambassador and “traitor”, wrote the book with the same title, which goes in depth explaining those delusions and their history. For many, in fact, almost all the people of Pakistan the […]

    Marvi Sirmed, Raghib Naeemi and the doctrine of Khair-ul-Makireen – by Pejamistri

    I don’t want to break my resolution to have break from social media. But I could not resist to write these few lines after watching this little clip of my favorite Marvi Sirmed. [youtube id=”gO4fIzUyqqg” width=”600″ height=”340″ position=”left”] If I had watched this clip two years back, I would have shouted bravo, and had declared […]

  • Sunanda Pushkar loved Shashi Tharoor to death – by Dr Shazia Nawaz

    Sunanda Pushkar loved Shashi Tharoor to death – by Dr Shazia Nawaz

    Sunanda Pushkar loved her husband to death. No pun intended. In fact, death doesn’t sound very romantic, does it? Sunanda, the deceased wife of Indian minister Shashi Tharoor, supposedly committed suicide after finding out about her husband’s alleged affair with a Pakistani journalist. The Pakistani journalist claims that the two were merely ‘intellectual companions.’ Beyond […]

    To those who don’t ‘value’ their life: A comment on Bilawal’s speech in Garhi Khuda Bux – by Pejamistri

    If there is any family who could deserve the bravery award not as individuals but as a family, it is the Bhutto Family. Generations after generations they are faced with life threats and death. But still they bravely speak despite standing behind the bullet proof glass despite knowing too well that such glasses won’t save […]

  • Hasan Muawiya, brother of Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi, behind witch-hunting of Ahmadis in Lahore – by Pejamistri

    Hasan Muawiya, brother of Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi, behind witch-hunting of Ahmadis in Lahore – by Pejamistri

      This guy, Hasan Muawiya, is the brother of Pakistani (fake) elitist liberals’ favorite Deobandi cleric Tahir Ashrafi. He registered a case against 72 year old Ahmedi Muslim who was not allowed even to have muslim like names. On social media, Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi, openly abuses and incites hatred and violence against Ahmadis. However, he […]

  • Pro-Taliban lobby in Pakistan establishment is after General Musharraf – by Pejamistri

    Pro-Taliban lobby in Pakistan establishment is after General Musharraf – by Pejamistri

    I don’t have any sympathy for Genera Musharraf, the mad dictator of the 21st century. He was the Don, the Chief and the main culprit. There can not be any two opinions about his crime and punishment to set an example for the future. But the truth is that we have to make an example […]

  • Qudratullah Shahab and the impressionable Pakistani youth – by Pejamistri

    Qudratullah Shahab and the impressionable Pakistani youth – by Pejamistri

    Qudratullah Shahab was probably the biggest thugs of his category. One of the greatest misfortune of Pakistan’s youth is to read books of such thugs in their young impressionable age, eg Shahab Nama. I remember when I was being impressed by likes Fyodor Dostoevesky, Maxim Gorki, Dickens, Tolstoy, Faiz, my friends used to be impressed […]

    پاکستان میں شیعہ مسلمانوں سے نفرت میں فرحت ہاشمی کا کردار: ایک سچی کہانی – از پیجا مستری

    انیس سو اسی کی دہائی میں امی ہمیں روح افزا شربت کی بالٹی بنا کر دیتیں اور ہم محرم کے دس دن وہ بالٹی لے کر گلی میں بیٹھ جاتے اور ہر آنے جانے والے کو شربت پلاتے- بتاتا چلوں کہ میرا تعلق ایک سنی گھرانے سے ہے – میرے والد کے انتہای قریبی دوست […]

  • Presidential elections: Supreme Court or Sharif Court? – by Pejamistri

    Presidential elections: Supreme Court or Sharif Court? – by Pejamistri

    No channel even cares to discuss today’s Supreme Court decision. This decision is another black spot on the face of checkered history of Supreme Court. This decision is against both letter and spirit of the constitution of Pakistan. Article 41 (4) categorically states that: “Election to the office of President shall be held not earlier […]

  • PejaMistri is dead! Death of social media activism in Pakistan

    As evident from the title, this is pejamistri’s last post and last activism through social media (twitter, facebook, criticalppp, pkpolitics and many other blogs and websites on Pakistani politics). PejaMistri has died after severe heart attack on account the reason that will be explained in this post. But before that let me share a brief […]

  • A critical reflection on Tahir-ul-Qadri’s Long March

    Over the past 5 days during the long march of Tahir-ul-Qadri or “Chabi wala baba” as his known amongst his critics, I have come across comments and analysis from many of my twitter and social network friends which forced me to pen this article. I am surprised at myself that in one sense I am […]

  • Rapist of History and Jinnah

    There are two people in Pakistan for whom I would advocate the punishment according to the Sharia Law (though I oppose all those barbaric punishments given in the name of Sharia). But for these two people I am okay for the punishment of stoning till death as per the Abrahamic Sharia Law. One of them […]

  • The real story about CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry – by Peja Mistri

    The story is very simple though. IMC a criminal by nature Iftikhar Muhammad Chauhdary (IMC) proved to be a thief and criminal minded person. My late father used to say that never judge a person if he steals a paltry amount as you don’t know whether he was really in need of that sum, but […]

  • A Citizen’s Petition

    I was going through the text of infamous petition of Mr. Nawaz Sharif , that “My Lord” has taken an immediate notice.  I realized if this was written by Nawaz Sharif himself and were “آئنی” and not “فرمایشی”, then it would have been like this. I am sure “My Lord” will not have the courage […]

  • Chohdary Court vs Dogar Court

    “Justice” Abdul Hameed Dogar of “Dogar” court was just an addition to the long list of jokers who were always available to dictators in Pakistan.  Abdul Hameed Dogar was no worse than “Justice” Haleem, “Justice” Irshad Hassan Khan or “Justice” Shaikh Riaz. The Dogar court judges were weak in every sense of the word, there only chance […]

  • Chief Justice of Pakistan: A monumental failure – by pejamistri

    Big successes often turn into monumental failures and this is one such case. It does not matter whether IMC was hand in glove with Kyani in order to get rid of Pervez Musharraf, the point is people started putting faith in him. In my observation, CJ IMC is probably the biggest failure in the history of Pakistan, from Bhutto , to Junejo , to BB, to NS and AZ every single Pakistani person whom people even trusted remotely have always proved that they were capable of upholding that trust by taking on the dictators and generals without fear.

  • On General Musharraf’s betrayal by General Kayani – by pejamistri

    In a recent interview General Pervez Musharraf has admitted that he was indeed betrayed by no other than his own generals. Saleem Safi (Geo TV) asked him out of the politicians he acquainted with during his era whom he found the person with “character” and who “disappointed” him most. After a long pause and thinking, […]

  • The real story- by Peja Mistri

    ISI routinely hires Pakistan’s right wing journalists to feed the stories in order to improve the image of military mafia. Such stories are usually very abstract and are written by the ISPR  ”master minds” in such  a way which ( in their “wisdom”) will leave a better impression of the current Don (COAS) and his […]

  • Keep everything secret! Under the oath of course – by pejamistri

    One thing I never understood is the obsession of certain quarters and personalities to keep things secret using the lame excuse of oath (yes the same oath for which they have absolute no regard when it comes to being threatened by the naked force of army). Yesterday CJ IMC was concerned about the attorney general […]

  • ‘Criminal negligence’ and the economical truth

    It is sometimes frustrating and at other times disappointing that the honorable judges of supreme court of Pakistan know exactly what they are supposed to do, however either intentionally or unintentionally they don’t do the right things. Yesterday at one point, CJ tried to be appreciative of the 18th amendment and the Parliament to correct […]

  • We borrowed it from South Africa?… No Sir!!

    One of the questions that CJ and some other judges keep asking from the petitioner’s counsels is:  Does  parliament have a say in judicial appointments in other countries? Mr. Akram Shaikh in his arguments tried to mislead the court and tried to divert the question to the appointments in UK by the judicial commission which […]

  • Please make the proceeding secret… we have a lot of dirty linen!!

    Mr. Akram Shaikh has completed his arguments and Supreme Court will now be hearing the case again on Monday. As I said earlier this case should have been thrown out by the registrar office, it has again been proven by the shallow and baseless arguments by Mr. Akram Shaikh.  Remember that only valid reason on which a Supreme Court can hear the case against a constitutional amendment is whether the amendment is against the fundamental rights or not.  18th Amendment has only safeguarded the fundamental rights of people of Pakistan.  Hearing the observations from some of the judges I feel that there is a good chance that SC may struck down article 175-A on a majority vote which will really be unfortunate. I hope CJ IMC does not go down in the history like his predecessor. He has many good qualities and should remember that people of Pakistan have the right to expect good from him……..
