I ask you, nay demand, to spend an hour listening to the The Musharraf Government Makes Its Case at the Asia Society. You will hear from such luminaries as:
Dr. Nasim Ashraf, Minister of State, Government of Pakistan; Chairman, National Commission for Human Development.
Barrister Mohammad Ali Saif, Minister of Tourism and Youth Affairs, Government of Pakistan.
Ms. Kashmala Tariq, Former Member, National Assembly of Pakistan.
The Q&A is really what you must hear. Kudos to the NY audience members.
Umm, for someone who is ignorant about the intricacies of Pakistani politics, what is the story about Kashmala? All that wikipedia has is a nudge-nudge wink wink story connecting her with men from every political party. Added to that Ali Ahsan's devastating attack on her.
No wonder Homistan is going down the tube. Listening to benefits of Martial Law from these assorted clowns is a painful experience. They are beneficiary of Mush/army dispensation. One point I want to make is that in Pakistani context being a Politician has become a dirty job/word. As there has been a consistent compaign to malign the politicians. Dr Ashraf in response to one question refers to his two co panelist as better suited to answer a question that is moure political(imlying ,I guess they are politicians and he is something else), Saif refers to the Lawyer movement as politically motivated and lawyers plating politicians, Heck, Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a Lawyer and politician.My culpibility in Dr Ashraf's rise as he rose from APPNA platform(Association of Pakistani Physicians of North America) No more 125 dollar annual membership dues as APPNA has not even issued a condemnation of the whole fiasco.
Amazing...i think the Q&A session was too good. I dont know but those who know Kashmala. i think she was exposed completely. such hollow rhetoric.

well its really impressive ..i dont know y in CRITICISM v neglect the good things ...kashmala mentioned that she said against of it ..wen she was replyin to ali ahsan. the most lame comments of tht BARRISTER saif ..I DONT think so that ali ahsan did some good job..n kashmala did right .she told straightaway tht she didnt know him for 20 yrs ...y u ppl neglect such things. as far as wikipedia is concerned is USER MAINTAINED site ..go and read about it on its website.any one whom have ACCOUNT there, is capable of editing n posting comments on any person.kashmala s profile is the most edited profile in wikepedia....and the comments there are basically from some newspapers.if u check it urself u shall find out that website itself mentions that it doesnt contain authorize material....unfortunately here in pak(south asia) every one start boosting on the basis of either newsreports or rumours n ppl do believe what ever written without confirming it . infact i believed it atfirst but then i went tht site n thoroughly read abt rules n regulations about posting i got amazed that its so easy here to write any thing whether truth or false on any person.
