A revival of Pakistan-US strategic partnership. Situation in Afghanistan, Asia, and Gulf is leading to this. This is a chance for both to repair ties. Islamabad can regain influence lost after Cold War. #Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
It is important for US interests in the region & for Pakistani interests that these two countries revive their strategic coop on equal footing ASAP. The US & PK, who won in Afghan war four decades ago, are on the retreat today thanks to regional players pushing a US & Pak defeat.
#Iran & #India have revived their 30yo plan of pulling Afghanistan out of American influence & failing Trump's Afg peace/pullout project. New Delhi & Tehran are working to end any Pakistani role in Afg peacemaking. #Chabahar is a key component of this project, and so is scuttling

PM #ImranKhan conducts effective+innovative visit of 'Religious Diplomacy' to #Iran. #Tehran's role in #India's policy of containing #Pakistan & role of groups using Pak soil agst Iran, loom large. My observations in this #Thread./1 #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Four main questions emerge from #Pakistan PM #ImranKhan's #Iran visit:
1. Are #Pakistani groups committing terror in #Iran?

2. Will #IRGC stop terrorism inside Pakistan?

3. Are Pakistan & Iran equally responsible?

4.Was PM's visit helpful?

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Fact: There are no #Pakistani groups committing terrorism in #Iran. All #Iranian groups run by Iranian citizens who move across Ir/Pk/Af border triangle. No state effectively controls this area. Main hideouts of Iranian grps are inside Iran, supported by Iranian citizens /3

#OrmaraMassacre in #Balochistan & #Iran's role in terrorism in #Pakistan, in pursuance of a joint strategic project with #India. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi
Two days before the emergence of #Iran's role in #Ormara attack, #Karachi police busted an #Iranian terror cell assigned to destabilize #Pakistan's business hub. /2
@AQpk

The busting of #Iran-backed #Karachi cell & role in #Ormara attack shows #Tehran has not stopped its anti-#Pakistan activities after the busting of #ChabaharTerrorNetwork, a joint project with #India, in 2015. /3

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

I was supposed to be in #Karachi right now for the Karachi LitFest this weekend but #Pakistan airspace was closed following tensions with #India. I hope de-escalation prevails. This an important statement from feminists apwld.org/statement-femi… h/t @shexistentially
“We note w/mounting dismay that the rhetoric deployed by both Governments is aimed at creating an unstable environment where media & social media is used for proliferation of unsubstantiated claims & counterclaims that are encouraging hyper-nationalism & religious fundamentalism”
“We are particularly concerned about the effects conflict has and has had on the women of South Asia” #India #Pakistan We are particularly concerned about the effects conflict has and has had on the women of South Asia, particularly sexual violence, enforced disappearance of male family members leaving women headed households vulnerable and economically insecure, and growing fundamentalism and curtailed civil and political rights leading to abrogation of women’s human rights.

I was supposed to begin my journey to #Karachi tonight to speak at @KhiLitFest but @qatarairways has cancelled all flights to #Pakistan. I hope for the sake of everyone in Pakistan and #India that tensions de-escalate. And I hope to return to Pakistan soon.
I have many friends in #Pakistan and #India and I have visited both countries before. I am thinking of all my friends there, send them all love and solidarity and hope to see them again soon. It is very important for me that I continue to take my ideas to both countries.
Several airlines, including @emirates and @QatarAirways, suspended flights to #Pakistan on Wednesday after the South Asian nation closed its air space following heightened tensions with neighbouring #India. google.com/amp/s/mobile.r…

On my recent trip back home, i decided to visit the areas that had gone through the anti-encroachment drive and interview the people in those areas. The stories we heard about families being forced onto the streets are, unfortunately, true.

#Pakistan #Karachi #AntiEncroachment
Meet Interviewee 1: Ahmed, aged 13. It is nothing new to see Child Labour in Pakistan but Ahmed was recently forced to start working at his uncle’s Ajrak shop because his father’s small shop had been torn down by the government. Before that? He went to school.

#ChildLabour
Pictured here is Interviewee 2: Ahmed’s Uncle Sajjad, packing dozens of unsold Ajraks awaiting the imminent threat of the #government’s anti-encroachment drive. He had taken over this shop in Abdullah Market, Saddar from his late father 7 years ago and paid the rent ever since.

Story time on the criminal neglect of the Fire Brigade in #Karachi and equally horrendous civic sense of its citizens. This is my story.
It's around 9PM on a weekday at a mutlistorey residential complex in Clifton when our apartment starts smelling of burnt rubber. The family quickly moves around the house to investigate and realise it's not from inside the apartment.
So cautiously we open the front door and can see thick black smoke billowing from one of the apartments. Quickly I send the family down the stairs while I scrumage in my tool box for a spanner pliers and a torch. Also grab the car keys and a cloth heading to the basement
