Since a few days have passed and thing have "relatively" calmed down, I want to comment on the optics of bringing out APCs in #Lahore Cantt. You all have seen the images go viral on this platform, and some were rightly outraged. 1/n
However, this isn't the first time #PakistanArmy brought out APCs against protesting public. Many years ago, there was a dispute between farmers and the Army over some land in #Okara. That's when this image was shot. For me, personally, it became of the most defining images 2/n
of how the Army behaves in the country. My shock stemmed from the fact that my father commanded 40 AK, which is equipped with TOW mounted APCs for hunting enemy tanks. How could the Army bring out APCs - which are essentially troop carriers - mounted with machine 3/n

The DGISPR is an interesting position. It requires qualities that are completely contradictory to those expected from an officer, specially the last 5 who have held the position. Starting as far back as Gen Rashid Qureshi who's tenure coincided with the liberalization of 1/n
media (and made DGISPRs the 'face of Army') all Generals have come from fighting arms. 3x from Armoured Corps, 2x from Infantry, and 1x from Artillery. None of them served in ISPR prior to getting posted as DGs except Rashid Qureshi. (He became a General without going 2/n
through a promotion board but that's a story for a different time). So for 30 years these men rose in rank in fighting arms demonstrating an excellence at killing through their opponents using the tools provided to them by the Army. The higher they rose, the less 3/n

عمران خان نے اقتدار کےآخری لمحوں میں آرمی چیف جنرل باجوہ کوبرطرف کردیا تھا..

سنیچر کی شب وزیراعظم ہاؤس میں آخر ہوا کیا؟

وزیراعظم کے خلاف تحریک عدم اعتماد کے ہنگامے کے درمیان سنیچر کی شب وزیراعظم ہاؤس میں
غیر معمولی سرگرمی دیکھنے میں آئی اور اس دوران کچھ تاریخی فیصلے اور واقعات رونما ہوئے، کچھ کیمروں کے سامنے اور بیشتر بند کمروں میں۔
سنیچر کے روز تمام دن گہما گہمی کا مرکز پارلیمنٹ ہاؤس رہا جہاں کبھی تقاریر ہوتیں اور کبھی اجلاس ملتوی کر کے حکومتی اور اپوزیشن
ارکان سپیکر قومی اسمبلی کے درمیان مذاکرات کیے جاتے رہے۔

لیکن شام کے وقت جب قومی اسمبلی کا اجلاس روزہ افطار کرنے کے لیے ملتوی کیا گیا تو سرگرمی کا مرکز اچانک وزیراعظم ہاؤس بن گیا۔
وزیراعظم عمران خان نے وفاقی کابینہ کا ہنگامی اجلاس طلب کر**

کسی نے سچ کہا ہے کہ "سیاست کے سینے میں دل نہیں ہوتا"

ایم کیوایم کا پیپلزپارٹی کیساتھ معاہدہ پر اپوزیشن کی حمایت کا فیصلہ۔ تحریکِ عدم اعتماد کے ضمن میں اپوزیشن کا پلڑا بھاری ہوگیا۔

اور اگر متحدہ قومی موومنٹ اس کا اعلان کر دیتی ہے تو میرے خیال میں عمران خان صاحب کو باعزت طریقے سے استعفیٰ دے دینا چاہیے۔
کیونکہ جمہوریت میں سادہ اکثریت کھو دینے کے بعد قائد ایوان کے پاس سیاسی اور آئینی طور پر کچھ نہیں رہ جاتا۔

آنے والی حکومت عارضی ہو گی جو جلد انتخابات کا اعلان کرے گی۔ جس میں پاکستان تحریک انصاف سمیت تمام سیاسی جماعتیں دوبارہ میدان عمل میں ہوں گی۔

A special court in Pakistan sentenced the former ruler #Musharraf to death for high treason. In this thread, I will recall history and will try to figure out the contributions of a leader who ruled this country for like 10 years. #DGISPR #Musharraf
#Musharraf and #NawazSharif presided over Pakistan's nuclear tests in May 1998, conducted in response to similar Indian tests.
Pakistan's economic stability was presided by #Musharraf and brought up lines of foreign credit that fueled a bankrupt economy.
