Like so many others, I have been thinking a lot about what’s going down in Afghanistan, what it means for Afghanistan and for us in Pakistan. I have to admit that fast-moving events and a multitude of emotions do cloud clear analysis. So I allowed myself the time to step back…>
But I think things are becoming clearer to me. But before I come to my realisations, let me just reiterate where I’m coming from. I’m very critical of the Taliban worldview but having spent some time in Afghanistan towards the end of their last rule, I also feel I understand…>
…the tragic circumstances that gave birth to them. I am not one of those who believe they were a simple Pak proxy force and I found the narrative built up in the post-2001 world by the US and those it propped up in power to be self-delusional. They believed their own stories…>

So apparently the closed door meeting yest by the army top brass with journos and others was intended to push for developing a narrative for the world re: Afghanistan. A few thoughts about what apparently transpired at the meeting…
1. Good luck trying to develop a credible narrative while beating down any voices of dissent within Pak media. Credibility is developed over years and years. No one will believe any narrative coming from the kind of toadies the establishment is fond of pushing within Pak. …>
… Incidentally, this is something that has been said again and again. But those in power forget again and again. They suddenly wake up at times of crises and realise that they need precisely the same credible voices they’ve been suppressing all this while. …>

Part 1 of Arshad Nadeem’s story. Just the visuals should be enough

A fictional story: In a mythical land far far away, one senior army officer was assigned the task by his masters to ensure that their favoured group won regional elections. He complied but decided to get some personal benefits as well. He told a billionaire who lived elsewhere…>
…he’d get him made the next chief in the region, as long as he supplied a billion. The deal was struck and as advance payment 100m was paid out to the officer. Ostensibly this was to be used to buy candidates and to aid in the election of supportive candidates. But the smart…>
…officer pocketed the advance and then told other candidates he could get them tickets if they gave him 5-10m. The whole scheme collapsed when some of the potential candidates raised a hue and cry. The army was forced to recall the officer and he now faces an inquiry for …>

“The apartheid of opportunities in Pakistan is horrible, which is why so many young people are trying to leave the country.”

Have heard a very shocking story from a very reliable friend. So my friend who recently travelled to Turkey as part of a delegation told me that his travel agent told him before travel that his PCR test had already been done. He said he was flabbergasted. Turns out the travel...>
...agent had got fake negative PCR results from a well known lab to satisfy the paperwork requirement. “You can still get your own if you want,” the agent said, “but for our purposes it’s done.” The agent justified this by arguing that getting the paperwork done for the whole...>
...delegation would have been too cumbersome otherwise. But the story does not end here. On the return trip, he was again informed that the PCR test results were already done. Apparently the Turk agent had a lab in Turkey too providing fake results.
Consider what this implies.
