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. To the rear of a recitation from the Holy Quran and the playing of the national anthem, the Prime Minister inaugurated his address by thanking his supporters who stood beside him throughout his 22 years

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

A 7-Year-Old Raped And Murdered In Pakistan

Chaos has ensued in Pakistan after 7-year-old Zainab was found in a dumpster, strangled and raped, a few days after being lost while going to her Quran class. Zainab’s parents had left her in the care of their relatives as they completed their Holy pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia. They had expected to come back to their sweet daughter with gifts and stories to tell but came back to her funeral instead. Anguished, her parents have

Trump’s First New Year’s Tweet: Pakistan Has Given Us “Nothing But Lies And Deceit”

It was not even the fulfilled wind-up of the first night of the newly 2018 when the current President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, decided he would take the weight off his feet on his gold-plated chair and set forth on yet another ridiculous, not-fact-checked, angry adventure on the world of social media in the waking/crying hours of bats and vampires and infants. Of all the things Trump could have achieved at

We Need To Address the Transphobia in Pakistan

Visiting Pakistan as a child and going out and about, I would sometimes see transgender people roaming the streets of the bazaars. These people would often be dressed in traditional Pakistani clothing for women and would have heaps of makeup on their faces, begging for money. Men would yell abuse and use degrading language, most often the horrible term “kusra”, meaning tr*nny, as well as cat-calling these harmless people and making them feel worthless. I

Culture and Religion: Two Completely Different Subjects

In September 2015, I left Canada to spend two and a half months in Pakistan. Those two months increased to five, to eight, until we ended up staying a whole year. Since I’ve returned home to Ontario, I’ve constantly been bombarded with questions as to how Pakistan was, and how I felt about staying for such a long period of time. Each time, I reply with the same answer. “It was an amazing experience. Very
