Letter to the Queen

By Asif Raja

HRM, The Queen 

Dear Madam, 

It has been a long time that I wrote to you last. Needless to say, I never bothered to post you those letters that I had written, or made any attempt to email you.

If memory serves right it was to be a weekly affair but like any good Pakistani Muslim it never happened, for which I am guilty as charged. More...

Why the “gradualists” were wrong.

By Omar Ali

In the days following the election I received a good deal of mail from “gradualists” who felt that “precipitate action” at this sensitive juncture would somehow disrupt the supposedly “delicate” process of transition to democracy in Pakistan. I was among those who insisted that such “gradualism” would NOT lead to transition to democracy. Rather, it would lead BACK to rule by secret agencies and behind the scenes operatives. More...
