Is the Koran a constitution?

May 31, 2010 by


By Dr. Abbas Zaidi Now that Fauzia Wahab has apologized in the face of Islamofascism at its worst (or best, if you may), it is only appropriate that someone should try to put her remark in its context. Unfortunately, no one—either liberals or the PPP leadership—has come to support her claim that during the time […]

Conspiracy Culture and reaction to the attacks on Ahmedi Mosques: Why our news outlets spread hatred?

May 30, 2010 by


Recently, NYT in a column expressed reservations over the conspiracy culture in Pakistan. The column pointed out the massive fan following of super-conspiracy theorists and the wide acceptance of these mega theories as legitimate.

The anti-Ahmediyya movement of ’53 was perhaps an attempt by the JI to gain political ground in Pakistan, for it did […]

May 27, 2010 by


It is no shocker that Pakistan’s youth has been indoctrinated with uber-conservative, jingoistic and intolerant religious dogmas but the loss of rationality among the newer generation becomes evident day after day upon us. While the Muslims across the world do not hold our Pan-Islamist ambitions and they never have resonated our feelings for a united […]
