    Pakistan's new Covid cases today 3,377, and India's new Covid cases today 382,691!

    There are more than one way of checking. Pakistan's positivity rate is still below 10%. India's is past 20%. Excess mortality rates are another measure. I am not gloating. Pakistan could become worse than India in a month (God forbid). But you need not doubt every statistic coming from...

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

    Right. In a perfect world, democracy should not work that way. But in real life, governments have to deal with all sorts of people and groups. Sometimes the greatest democracy in the world has to sit across the Taliban and negotiate. As for illegal pressure groups, unfortunately, the TLP is/was...

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

    I just wanted to refute the claim that the government reneged on its promise to expel the French ambassador. That is not what they promised. The fact is that the government is trying to handle the situation as best as it can, given the huge amount of constraints they are under. One wrong move...

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

But that is how democracy is supposed to work. The fact that the government only committed to bringing it to...

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

    You have not answered my question. Instead, you went on a rant that is totally irrelevant to the issue being discussed.

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

    I googled the two agreements. The first one says, "hukoomat France ke safeer ko do ya teen mah ke arse ke andar Parliament se faisla sazi ke zarye mulk badr kare gi". The second one says, "muahide ki shiqon ko 20 April 2021 tak Parliament men paish kar diya jaiga, awr faisle Parliament ki...

    PM Imran live address to the nation on banned TLP issue

    Let's put aside everything else, do you believe that their demand of expelling the French ambassador is the best course of action? My understanding is that the government only committed to bringing their demand of expelling the French ambassador to Parliament for discussion/approval. They did...

    Govt temporarily suspends social media services across Pakistan

    It's probably to put a break on the social media campaign against the ban of TLP. It will also help confirm whether the Twitter/Facebook posts are coming from within or from foreign sources. Those who continue to post during the outage will expose themselves.

    Transparency International raises objections to proposed amendments to State Bank of Pakistan Act 1956

    Well, those are the only three choices available to us at the moment. Not long ago, there were only two, but thankfully PTI offered us another option. If you can help me identify another viable, better option, I will gladly consider and support.

    Transparency International raises objections to proposed amendments to State Bank of Pakistan Act 1956

    Right. They should have gone with experienced, prudent, statesmen like Sharif or Zadari instead. You should be a government advisor. None of those fools in successive governments seem to know these little tricks of the trade.
