Pants

Posted by in Thoughts

“When I was new in the USA.  One of the happiest day of my life was to be able to afford a pair of khakis from Walmart.  I thought I had achieved something big. It was a time when 15$ pants were hard to come by. Alhamdulillah such experiences are a reminder who I was. All I can think now is alhamdulillah”

Friends

Posted by in Thoughts

Spending my life in parts has left me with no true friends I think. I lived in Pakistan until I was eleven and left all my school friends to move to Bahrain. Then spent my teenage years in Bahrain and made friends there. When it was time to move again, I had to leave all that. I moved back to Pakistan to a new adventure, without Email/Skype/Facebook during those days meant that those friends had better things to do. Leaving all behind in Bahrain was especially hard as all I…read more

Politics (A rant)

Posted by in Current Affairs, Thoughts

When i came to the USA some 10 odd years ago, i witnessed the first election in 2000; it was closely fought and very controversial. I looked at the election from a distance as i was working odd jobs and trying to make a living. From what i saw from far was a noble system that was working so well for the people. I would think then that this is the way Pakistan needs to be at, with elections held and results handled so well (although the results that year…read more

Nuclear Iran

Posted by in Uncategorized

Well I am not going to speculate about a nuclear Iran, It was definitely be a problem for Muslims (Sunni I mean) who dont like Iran. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan I am sure won’t be happy with that fact. Maybe they might even help USA some how covert to stop Tehran from getting closer to a full nuclear program. Shias in Pakistan are a minority and so are they in Saudi Arabia; A Nuclear Iran will help those minority get stronger. Well I didn’t start the blog about this issue…read more

Abdul Rahman and Islam

Posted by in Uncategorized

Well let me clarify something. I am not in favor of killing anyone but If Afghanistan says the law is based on Shariah then what the Shariah says should be done. One thing a lot of people don’t realize is that why interfere in some countries internal Affairs, Ohh well Afghanistan is already an American run country then they sure can. But if they preach Democracy and claim that Afghanistan is a democratic state then I guess they need to let the course of the law take its shape. I…read more

GW Poem

Posted by in Uncategorized

I came across the poem that has been causing a lot of stir in Pakistan. It is amazing to just try to understand that the Ministry of Education will look at provoking the public in such a manner. Pakistanis don’t feel very high about USA and then the policies of the current establishment have not helped in improving its image with War in Iraq and Afghanistan. To make the matters worse the government of Pakistan decided to add this poem to the syllabi of the 11 grade student. One thing…read more
