We won’t let you bury NRO; you can bury democracy instead.

Here is a selection of three op-eds on this topic:

Abbas Ather notes that the right-wing (pro-Taliban) anchors and propagandists don’t want to bury NRO; instead they wan’t to bury democracy in Pakistan.

Munno Bhai wonders if the abusers of the freedom of media in Pakistan might need a “Saif-ur-Rehman” in the future?
Ayaz Khan advises anchors and journalists with a particular (pro-Taliban, anti-Zardari or anti-democracy) agenda to have a bit of objectivity in their reporting and analysis.

  • Ansar Abbasi's pearls of wisdom, will there ever be someone to counter this monster [MS]

    Dear Ms. M,

    Just compare the double standards of Mr Ansar Abbasi in his latest Column on Mr Altaf Hussain and MQM in Jang Internet Edition 9 Nov 2009 and do read a reply from MQM on the Column of Mr Ansar Abbasi which was written In the Urdu daily Jang of February 2, 2009 there was a column titled “Would Altaf Hussain participate in long march ?”

    Ansar want Fasad in Pakistan, expose him!

    A Riposte to Ansar Abbasi

    By Mustafa Azizabadi Member – Central Rabita Committee & In charge Central Media cell. MQM

    This column was a direct response to MQM’s Quaid Mr. Altaf Hussain’s address to MQM’s rabita committee in London on Jan 27, 2009. During the address Mr. Altaf Hussain put a simple question to Mr. Nawaz Shareef vis-à-vis PCO judges. that “what does the Charter of democracy’s article 3, clause (a) & (b) says about those judges who took oath under the PCO and if Mian sahib can answer this question then MQM too would diligently work with them towards the enforcement of Charter of Democracy.”. But in case Mian Nawaz fails to answer the question then it will be morally binding on him and an obligation to reconsider his decision to participate in long march. Principally & professionally speaking the answer should have come from Mian Nawaz Shareef. Alas it never came; nevertheless Mr. Ansar Abbasi took upon himself to issue a rejoinder.
