Pakistan

On Monday, Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD), on the UN list of banned organisations, announced it would enter mainstream politics, and has launched a new political party, the Milli Muslim League (MML).

 

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is determined to mobilise his support base in Punjab’s heartland. The GT Road has remained his firm electoral base for more than two decades.

 

The truck bomb blast in Lahore on Monday night that claimed a life and injured over 45 people appears to be a result of criminal negligence.

 

The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), in a press conference, has announced its entry into mainstream Pakistani politics. That’s right.

 

After a gap of four years, we finally have a full-time minister to take charge of foreign affairs.

 

AN all-too-familiar and sinister pattern is beginning to repeat itself in Sindh. The past few weeks have seen increasing agitation against enforced disappearances of political activists in the province.

 

No Pakistani citizen should be subjected to the justice of jirgas and panchayats.

 

IN the more than four years since the country last had a foreign minister, much has changed on the external front.

 

Those who disagree with former Supreme Court Bar Association president Asma Jahangir over the Panama Papers judgement have a right to do so.

 
Nawaz Sharif is a politician who has avoided open-ended interviews and pressconferences in favor of closely controlled unilateral statements and speeches during his four year term.
