The Saudi Crown Prince is Coming to Pakistan and Pakistanis Are Not Happy About It

A few months ago, the CIA released a report on the murder of the Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Ahmed Khashoggi, briefing that the brutal murder was conducted under the orders of the Saudi Crown Prince, Muhammad Bin Salman. Ever since, the royalty has become a thorn in the eyes of journalists and humanitarians worldwide. Let’s not forget that this murderous prince is also the architect of the on-going Saudi war on Yemen and directly responsible

What These Pakistanis Girls Wish To Do If They Were Boys For A Day Might Shock You

Some time ago in a poll on my Instagram story, I asked Pakistani girls from among my followers a simple question: what they would do if they were to be guys for 24 hours and why. The results did not shock me, and I could relate to almost all of the answers. One respondent from Rawalpindi, Rameen, said: “Get out of my house and walk around the neighborhood.” And that, very plainly, is the reality

Why I Think Pakistan Is Still Colonized After Seventy Years Of Independence

Recently, I had a few discussions about the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, with my workmates. When we Pakistanis talk about the man who got us the freedom we have today, we often forget to talk about the freedom we still do not have. A few days ago in a tweet, the prime minister of Pakistan Imran khan taunted those who criticized his poultry plan calling them “colonized minds’’ and just like that, he

Why World Leaders Are Planning To #DitchTheDollar

The U.S. dollar is the world’s greatest reserve currency, with around 63% of global reserves held in it. It also enjoys a special position as the fiat currency – or a currency widely relied upon by businesspeople worldwide – and as the primary currency in which international bilateral trading is done, even when the U.S. is not a party in the said deal. All this has given the U.S. dollar, and hence the country it

Feminism vs. Hyperfeminism In Pakistan: Where to Draw the Line?

I recently came across an Instagram post by a popular feminist page in Pakistan, and this is what its caption said: “From university campuses to mosques… where is a girl free of the moral police, pray tell?” This is what got me thinking that we urgently need to have a debate about whether or not this comparison is valid. Personally, I don’t consider the above mentioned argument valid and don’t agree with the claim

A Hope For Pakistan: Prime Minister Khan Addresses Nation

On the 17th of August 2018, Imran Khan was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Last night, Imran Khan addressed the nation as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for the first time, passing an hour-long across-the-board, televisual speech.

Nawaz Sharif: The Rise and Fall of the Crown

Mian Nawaz Sharif inaugurated his political livelihood back in the course of a period where many industries, including the Sharif’s steel business, were taken into the public sector by Pakistan’s then-Prime Minister, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. His father, Mian Muhammad Sharif, was an entrepreneur who had next to no interest in politics, but when his factories were municipalised by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, he moulded up a hostility against him. In some way, General Jillani convinced him
