Indian authorities file Sedition charges against the Kashmiri students who cheered for Pakistani Cricket team. For the actual celebration which caused all this sad uproar check this video.
Update (7/3/2014 1:47 pm): Not confirmed by the officials yet but sedition charges might have been dropped now.
Steel Mill People: So earlier this month I went with some friends to shoot at a Steel Mill near Lahore. It is interesting how scrap from all over the world come to places like this to be melted (at whooping 1700 degree Celsius) and converted to rods to be later re-rolled by men with very little safety gear on. It is a tough job and yes it does present with some interesting captures.
Will try to post some more later.
Police in India have failed to act on hundreds of corruption complaints over an eight-year period because they did not know a computer password, it seems. (complete)
Her life is in danger and she is pleading for 50 Rs top up but she still manages to give another number she wants you to send the money to.
Go save her #Pakistan!
*Wondering where did Asma go!*
Just learned that brother of one of my colleagues in University here in Lahore has lost his life in this recent mindlessly-barbaric terrorist attack in Islamabad. Then was talking to father and came to know that one of my neighbours in Islamabad, a young girl who who had done LLB and was planning to leave for UK for further studies in law. Another of my close family member was supposed to defend the case in the same court room in next few minutes, luckily she was still parking her car when the whole thing happened.
How much more this war has to get personal before we take action as a nation?
It is sad to see our leaders come up on media and put all the blame on America or other “outside powers”. I know that is very much possible, but please for God’s sake open up your eyes! They aren’t sending their own citizens to do their bidding, it is our own people who are their foot soldiers - and we need to pull the plug on these people first. Shifting the blame wont same our citizens or properties.
As for Jamat-e-Islami’s bonkers-Chief who has suggested that Prime Minister of the country should directly negotiate with the terrorist TTP - I have only two things to say: a. I miss Qazi Hussain Ahmad. b. You deserve the same fate as of Jamat-e-Islami Bangladesh, and I pray that happens soon!
People asking for Ch Nisar’s resignation should realise that if Pakistan had a culture of resignation over incompetence or public embarrassment; our leaders would have had to resign from resigning!
My bedside table right now. Mocca now comes highly recommended!

New addition to my reading list: Punjab by Rajmohan Gandhi, Ivan’s war by Catherine Merridale and Land of two rivers by Nitish Sengupta.
I’m however still looking for recommendations on Korean history. If you are in #Lahore I hope you’ve seen the book fair already.

The anti-censorship anthem from Pakistan beside some other hypocrisies of the society discussed. Since 2012 Youtube is banned in Pakistan for a third-class-retard-basement home video deemed blasphemous.
Have you noticed that Police forklifters picking cars up for parking violations do not have a registration plate which it is itself a traffic violation?
My country where a baker has to prove his religion out of fear from extremists. Shezan company is long associated with Qadiyanis (declared constitutionally non-Muslim since late 60s) and they’ve suffered a lot because of that. This bakery of theirs has a hadith posted outside the store window attesting to the finality of Prophethood.
Not believing in others religion on personal level is another thing but that on a state level….
And oh I’m not a Qadiyani :)
