I support this idea.

Very nicely presented ... But i guess .. When qadri sahib came to pakistan he was not expecting such a great response from people. Now yes its true that he is little soft on his targets but these targets and goals are achievable. He needs people support and sure i guess people would support him. And i am very disappionted to see all the anchors and writers speaking against him as they dont know the reality. Dr qadri is from last two year saying this system needs a disection. And now people also understand after the bypolls. Now we should support him as it is a good cause. Anchors which are asking questions related to personalities than agenda only want there Programs rating to go higher. I appreciate ur writing. Imran khan can really benefit from qadri sahib. Sure everyone hv controversies attached to them, but i am amazed to see the reaction of some anchors when they talk abt stupid controversies abt qadri sahib and his past, abt his dreams and his hat ... This makes me think that he is really popular among people. They all envy him. They dont talk abt real issues but only personal questions again and agian and though qadri sahib answer them well enough they atill ask agian .. So stupid but anyway i hope real democracy can be restored in pakistan and if it has to be done by the hands of qadri sahib than be it. I dont care for bames or flags or parties what is important what qadri sahib demands reforms they should achieve them and must do a long march.

While Pakistanis , like the author of this article, continue to point fingers of blame for Pakistani failures to grow a mature democracy....freedom of choice and the individual is being stolen from the average Pakistani citizen by militant peers and religious fundementalist zealots!

Laughing stock of Pakistan

This old windbag continues to be the laughing stock of Pakistan and an embarrassment to the Tribune....his convoluted conspiracy theories have no basis in fact and his rambling diatribes against the west reveal his prejudices...he should be retired completely from this paper and the tribune would improve its image as a responsible news source instead of a promoter of Taliban propaganda...
