Pakistan’s Dysfunctional Judicial System

Zafar Bangash

Jumada' al-Ula' 26, 14402019-02-01

Muharram 19, 14372015-11-01

Some commentators have described Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Washington (October 21–23) as a huge mistake. It is not difficult to see why. Smoke signals from the capital of the great Satan clearly indicated trouble ahead and it came aplenty so the question is, why did the “Lion of Punjab” (Mian Sahib to his buddies and admirers) still undertake the trip?

The influence of external powers in Pakistani politics

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 22, 14282008-01-01

Benazir Bhutto’s assassination has revealed a facet of Pakistani politics that is not generally known to people in the West: the extent to which Pakistani politicians act as agents of the West. Tens of thousands of Muslims are killed in political violence each year, most of of it sponsored by the West. Few are mourned as deeply as Benazir.
