The Crisis of Democracy in Pakistan

The Crisis of Democracy in Pakistan

Imran Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri have distinguished themselves by attacking the foundation of a corrupt political system that has little hopes for the common man in Pakistan. In the entire electoral history of Pakistan, free and fair elections were conducted once in 1970, which resulted in the break-up of Pakistan in 1971. A disempowered Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has been used as a rubber...

What is Next for Ashraf Ghani ?

What is Next for Ashraf Ghani ?

I did not vote for Ashraf Ghani because he is an ethnic Pashtun or because he belongs to the Ahmadzai tribe. Rather, I voted for him because he had a comprehensive election manifesto, which contained potential solutions to insecurity, stagnant economy, industrial-scale corruption and social injustices in Afghanistan.

In late March 2014, at the persistence of one of my close friends, I attended an...

Male Chauvinism

Wednesday, 15 October 2014  |  Shad Begum
Male Chauvinism

You are apologetic, defenseless and a weak creature. You are not supposed to condemn, criticize or argue. Obedience is the hallmark of your ideal character. You have no separate identity. You are known to others by the identity of your men – your father, brothers, or husband. You want to please all of them and struggle to meet their expectations.

Whether in the name of a self-defined religion or ...

The Problems of Polygamy

The Problems of Polygamy

IT is often offered as a solution to the problem of destitute women. If every man married four of them, some have stated, then all women would have a male guardian, a protector, someone to support them.

The reality of polygamy, however, is often neither this neat nor this simple. Last week, The National, a leading newspaper out of the United Arab Emirates, published news of emerging research...

Afghan Culture Needs Reforms

Afghan Culture Needs Reforms

Afghans have inherited a set of rituals and customs from their ancestors. People in this country have traditionally grown up in rural areas within large families and tribal communities. Some of these traditions such as marriage without the consent of girls and boys, barring girls from getting education (in some cases boys) and preventing people from thinking freely have proven to be difficult fo...

NAZARMATAY; A Ray OF Hope   (Guard against evil eye)

There are many problems which are solved by the ingenuity of human beings. From the very beginning, man is fighting against nature .It is a great duel. Modern man, no doubt is successful against nature in many battles but there are many instances where logic and science completely fail to secure him. He is then left with the only option to seek refuge in supernatural things.

Dumping the Scum of Tribal Areas in Afghanistan: Operation Zarb-e-Azb of GHQ in North Waziristan—the Last Battle in the Last Safe Haven

Following the breakdown of peace talks and a deadly attack on Karachi Airport precipitated the long-awaited operation by Pakistani security forces in North Waziristan Agency—the last safe haven for insurgents (Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and other foreign militants). Although for a long time there was a perennial demand by Americans for an offense against insurgents in the aforementioned agenc...

BUILDING PEACE THROUGH CONSENSUS : Reforming Madaris

Pakistan’s educational system is a reflection of its class divide. Private English medium schools are fulfilling the needs of the elites’ children, government-run schools for lower-middle class and Madaris (religious seminaries) accommodating the lower income groups. Population growth, insufficient investment in the social sector, and the gradual increase in the number of people living below the P...

Afghanistan: Geo-Strategic Land or Land of Opportunity for Trade?

Afghanistan has been the jumping pad for invaders and occupiers over the centuries due to its geo-strategic and geo-political location in the heart of Asia. It has also been a significant trade route to Central Asia, South Asia, West Asia and Europe; the prominent Silk Route is one of its best examples.

The Silk route was an important major trade route through which the goods such as spices a...

Declining Development Aid and Emergence of Afghanistan’s Economy Post-2014

With Afghanistan’s presidential elections set for April 2014, and the withdrawal of the international security forces towards the end of 2014, both Afghans and the international community have set eyes on the fate of the country. With declining development aid after 2014, the international community has shown concerns over the probable reversal of economic development gains of the last decade, wor...
