PML-N candidate Malik Shakeel Awan defeated the Rawalpindi heavyweight and chief of the Awami Muslim League Sheikh Rashid by a big margin in the NA-55 by-polls. Although Sheikh Rashid has made allegations and blamed for alleged rigging during vote casting, but he has decided not to regsiter his complaint with Election Comission of Pakistan (ECP). At one point, Sheikh Rashid also pointed out that a Private TV Channel has damaged his election campaign by broadcasting a TV programme a night before the polling.


  • Should Sheikh Rashid register his complaint with ECP?
  • Do you think its the end of political career of Sh. Rashid after his 2nd consecutive defeat?
  • It has become the norm to blame other parties and present Govt after loosing the election. Do you think Sh. Rashid`s blames also fall under the same scenrio?

    Masses Maturity in Pakistan

    Masses Maturity in Pakistan

    In all the recently held bye elections masses maturity was established at least. Everywhere the BJP (viz JI) of Pakistan was cast off with full resolve. Their tossed candidate; a veterinary doctor gained simply .1 % votes in NA 55 Rawalpindi 6. Masses of the country have made out with naked eyes the repulsive role the JI has been playing in case of terrorism throughout the country. During their five years long dark rule (misrule to say most appropriately) in NWFP has left more monstrous legacy than that of their Ameer-ul-mumineen; Gen. Zia & his progeny during their 11 years long regime in the country.
    The third dictator, Zia-ul-Haque proved himself the most third-rate among the lot and of course he was the worst among the rest. For how long his legacy will haunt the nation, region and world at large is every’s body guess.
    One of the nastiest tragedies that occurred during Gen Zia-ul-Haque’s 11 years long dark night was arming of the JI’s offbeat as well as the his own descendants; MQM from top to toe along with granting the training facilities throughout the whole country.
    What the nation is reaping now was sown by the third dictator, Zia-ul-Haque with the help of JI’s satanic cult which was brought up by the fourth dictator Gen Mush with the help of JI’s kith and kin during their five years Talibanization in the NWFP. What I say has been my naked eye observation but still for public knowledge I would like to refer only one aspect: You won’t see ever that JI’s top brass would condemn Taliban, Talibanization or their inhuman atrocities, ever!!!
    The recently held bye election is considered and rightly so the last nail in the coffin of the satanic cult!!!

    About NA55

    The PML-N had only right person,and who has been selected
    while shaikh rasheed is not a right person for that, and i would like to suggest that shaikh rasheed must leave the politics because he is the defeated person now.

    Muhammad uzzair, Pakistan - 26 February, 2010

    SHEIK RASHEED , THIS WAS THE LAST ELECTION OF YOUR POLITICAL CAREER AS THE PEOPLE OF RAWALPINDI REJECTED YOU. ALTOUGH MOST OF THE PARTIES STOOD BY YOUR SIDE AND SUPPORTED YOU, NOBODY WAS ABLE TO SAFE YOU FROM THIS DEFEAT. NOW , YOU HAVE THE ONLY CHOICE THAT YOU SHOULD GO BACK TO RAIWIND (JOIN PML N) OR BE MARRIED TO SPEND YOUR LIFE.......

    Great Contibutor

    We would always like to great see Sh. Rashid always in the NA or the Senate. He is one of the grass root leaders emerged from amongst the masses and common man. We have utmost respect for the services he has done for his constituency and the entire country. I hope the Rawalpindi electorate will re-think in next elections and bring him back. One thing is granted, there is no great orator and speaker like him in both the houses. Sh-Rashid please keep up and always contest elections as you are democracy. One thing I would have liked if you would pick the phone (like USA elctions) and had congratulated the winner in your conceding speech with your supporters accumulated at Lal Haweli. Let me tell you would have looked even more taller than what you are today. Pakistanis, lets see Sh-Rashid in next election return from the same Rawalpindi constituency.

    He should win

    Sheikh Rashid is one of our leader and has vast experiance in current scene of pakistan politics. further more he is blunt stack holder and can express his views in hall of deciders. On the other side, shakeel awan is the part of big party. He would share his ideas with the consent of his party laedership. Also, sheikh rashid has a very walfare personality. I think people has made wrong decision. But we should accept and respect the people choise. These results shows us the need of poloitical awareness in the people.

    MAN.I WISH HOPE GOOD IN FUTURE....IN SHA ALLAH.

    Shaikh Rasheed a common man

    Having studied about Shaikh Rasheed more and more, I have to add what I wrote in your esteemed columns. He was a great student leader emerging from a common family with no roots to Jagirdar, Waderas, and corrupt politicians. I was amazed to learn this great son of Pakistan has done so many for the Rawalpindi area and service by providing educational shcools to girls. Islam places great emphasis to ladies education because she bears the family in the form of mother, in addition to being a daughter, a wife and a sister. Shaikh Rasheed, there has not been a night that I have gone to sleep without praying for your long life. I am confident that Pindi masses and the constituency of Lal Haveli will bring you back as the elected leader in the National Assembly. I want to see that day again, when you being the top orator in Pakistan with such a great knowledge and interesting public meeting that you hold. In that pursuit, Shaikh Rasheed has the same philosophy as the MQM because both are the generation of common man, this is very rare in Punjab. Shaikh Saheb !! please do consider merging your Awami Muslim League with MQM becasue yours and theirs ahev common goals. I am a non-political by my views and have witnessed my beloved country Pakistan for several decades, while being in Houston in the Petroleum Industry. I remember when you inaugurated your Awami Muslim League, MQM was so vehement in congratulating you as your party is the only one in Punjab initiated by a common man. Shaikh Rasheed when I visit Pakistan next time I will come to pay my respect and pray for you.

    Sheikh Rashid

    Sheikh Rashid is politician of a common man. He does not belong to the upper elite class.
    I support and I like his way.
    I am a student and I will always vote for him as long as he talks and acts for poor masses.

    Election old thing but what about killers?

    Election is over a long ago but there is no report about about the killers who attacked Sh Rasheed and killed his sporters. Even never pointed out by Pindi police.
    It looks like the case of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto.

    Main too Allah Tallah say yay dua karta hoon kay hamray mulk ki bag door Honourable Chief Justice of Pakistan ki tara kabal aur honest team par mustamal hoo joo qoomi mufadat par apnay mufadad ko tarji nana dany.

    Sh. Rashid is a true awami leader of Pakistan.He is not a land lord and is not from o fudil family. Mostlly he speaks the truth and is worried about the future of Pakistan.I pray for the success of MR.Sh Rasheed in the fortcoming General Elections.I think he is the true hope and future of Pakistan . Long Live Sh. Rasheed . Long Live PAKISTAN>
