Best comment ever

I present to you the best comment on the internet courtesy of this blog post on Let Us Build Pakistan inviting nominations for the Pakistan Ignoble Award for Journalism. There are just so many great things about this comment. The description of Talat Hussain is priceless: “Talat tries to maintain the facade of impartiality while raping it”. Kashif Abbasi “play acts Sqeeler of George Orwell’s animal farm” (haha!) Hamid Mir “thinks he’s an Arab warrior trying to ransack a city of infidels”. I also agree with his conclusion “THIS JOURNALISTIC HOOLIGANISM IS ALMOST INTOLERABLE BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE SILENCED.FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS IMPORTANY EVEN IF SPEECH IS JUST A MEANINGLESS NOISE.” Indeed!

SHAHID MASOOD.
IT WAS A TOUGH COMPETITION.WE HAVE GOT LOADS OF THEM WHO COULD GET THIS AWARD LIKE TALAT, KASHIF, YASMIN MANZOOR, HAMID MIR, QADER HASAN, ORYA MAQBOOL,
QAMI, DANISH AND NASIM ZEHRA BUT I THINK SHAID MASSOD DESERVES THIS AWARD . ALTHOUGH, I AM NOT VERY SURE BECAUSE OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE GOT EQUALLY IGNOBLE CREDENTIALS.FOR EXAMPLE
TALAT TRIES TO MAINTAIN THE FACADE OF IMPARTIALLITY WHILE RAPING IT. HE CANNOT HIDE HIS PLEASURE OF DEMONISING POLITICIANS AND GLORIFYING MEDIA MILITRAY ALLIANCE.HE HAS ALSO GOT A SOFT CORNER FOR TALIBAN.HE INTENDS TO BE A KINGMAKER
IN OUR UNLUCKY LAND WHERE SUCH PEOPLE ARE DEEMED TO BE IMPORTANT.
KASHIF ABBASI PLAY -ACTS SQUEELER OF GEORGE ORWELLS NOVEL ANIMAL FARM.HE THINKS NOISE IS AFFIRMATION OF TRUTH.HE IS VERY CYNICAL, TRIES TO INSULT HIS GUESTS
AND CANNOT OVERCOME HIS UNREASONABLE HATRED FOR ZARDARI.
YAMIN MANZOOR FOR PRETENTIONS OF GODLY WIDOM AND BAD MANNERS.SHE IS MORE INTERESTED IN CONFLICT THAN OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS.
HAMID MIR THINKS THAT HE IS AN ARAB WARRIOR TRYING TO RANSACK A CITY FULL OF INFIDELS.HIS YEARNING FOR PAST GLORY IS DESTROYING OUR PRESENT FOR ALMOST TWO DECADES.AND JOURNALISTIC HONESTY IS ON PERMANANT HOLIDAY IN HIS DOMAIN.BECAUSE
NASIM HIJAZI NOVELS AND LOCAL MULLAH SERMONS HAVE KIDNAPPED OBJECTIVITY LIKE TALIBAN KIDNAP ENGINEERS IN ORDER TO SLAUGHTER THEM.LIKE ALL PAST LOVERS HE HAS GOT GOOD ECNOMIC SENSE.HE KEEPS CHNAGING SIDES WITHOUT ABNDONING HIS VERTION OF A LONG GONE ARAB WARRIOR.
QADER HASAN, ORYA MAQBOOL, QASMI AND INSAR ABBASSI HAVE BEEN PERSISTENT IN THE ART OF LYING, SPYING AND MEANINGLESS GIBBERISH.THEY ARE STARS OF ANTI DEMOCRACY, ANTI PROVINCES AND ANT- BHUTTO MOVEMENT.THEIR REVULTION TO DEMOCRACY AND ELECTED POLITICIANS HAS NO BOUNDARIES.HATRED OF BHUTTOS HAS KILLED THEIR SENSE OF JOURNALISTIC NORMS AND CUSTOMS.
DANISH IS ALSO OF HIS OWN KIND.HE RUNS A TALK SHOW AND PERSISTENTLY DECLARES THAT PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN ARE INSENSITIVE AND ILLITERATE.ALL THESE SHARE A COMMON TRAIT WITH DICTATORS. THEY WANT TO CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF PAKISTANI LIFE.ELECTION, PUBLIC, CHOICE ARE NOT IMPORTANT THINGS TO THEM.PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN HAVE REJECTED ALL VERTION OF DICTATORSHIP.BUT THEY WOULD NEVER RESPECT THE PEOPLE ‘S WILL.THIS JOURNALISTIC HOOLIGANISM IS ALMOST INTOLERABLE BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE SILENCED.FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS IMPORTANY EVEN IF SPEECH IS JUST A MEANINGLESS NOISE.TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT I WOULD NOMINATE SHAID MASOOD AS MOST IGNOBLE JOURNALIST BECAUSE HE SYMBOLISES TOXIC WASTE OF JOURNALISM INDUSTRY.HE WAS RESPECTED BY BHUTTO FAMILY AND HE IS TELLING LIES ABOUT THEIR FAMILY LIFE.VIOLATING OTHER PEOPLE’S PRIVACY IS THE MOST IGNOBLE DEED.TRYING TO UNSEAT AN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE IS WORST SORT OF PRIVACY INVATION.WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. COMMIT CRIMES, SINS AND FOLLIES BUT WE CANNOT KILL A MORAL PERSON WITHIN.SHAID MASOOD HAS DONE SO.READ HIS ARTICLES, YOU WILL SEE IT FOR YOURSELF

    You are one of the few bloggers who speak the truth without fear. People like you are badly need because our civilization depends upon honest people who speak, Edward Said’s words, truth to power. All the best and keep it up.
    Let us build Pakistan together!

  2. Rabia

    thank you omar for such a nice comment. it really made my day.

    ms. Rabia is turning out to be the female version of the biggest so-called left-liberal and anti-pakistan columnists, Nadeem F. Paracha and Hasan Nisar!
    They thinks by constanly attacking people like shahid masood, zaid hamid, insar abbasi, and other such minds, they will crush them with their marx-meets-gandhi talk, well dream on.

  4. @patriot-to-Taliban, where is your jihadi jacket, dude? What’s on the agenda next after the Rawalpindi mosque attack yesterday? How many left-liberals were killed in that ‘masjid-e-zarrar’ (as claimed by the Taliban spokesperson).

    At least learn how to address a woman. Shameless…

    Dear Permalink, Please stop reading Rabia’s blog and Let Us Build Pakistan. The are too much for the narrow mind which you have. Why trouble yourself? I am sure it hurts you. You can do a lot for Islam and the Taliban. You know just outside Lahore, there are lots of wild boars. I suggest you blow yourself up there and kill a few of them. You will enter the Guiness Book of Records because no one has done this so far. God speed and an early entry into the arms of 72 virgins.

  6. a letter to abdul qadir hasan . acolumnist.dear qader
    people have pakistan have rejected dictatorships, theocracy and persistently articulated big lies. this medieval barbarity, this terrorism, this love for taliban cannot win ballot. you have spent your life, trying to deny public their rights. you joined hands with that darkness which is called zia.you sang songs for every power which hated a democratic pakistan.you and your backers have lost this battle. your darling taliban have been exposed as butchers, your friends in military like zia are
    hated as ignorant fools who had no vision. this strategic depth was a consequence of intellectual shallowness. it caused
    a great deal of misery but it is breathing its last. you are getting old fear you will miss a bright pakistan of future where people will not forced to follow a distorted version of this so called sharia of taliban.where people will get their all rights back. where people like you would be laughed at because they would have no power. you should have been a laughing stock but you are portrayed as a great analyst. this is pakistan’s misfortune. people of pakistan are trying to get rid of this misfortune of having ignorant and greedy fools at the helm of affairs. they would succeed sooner or later.
    america has not failed in afghanistan.let see who will have last laugh?.i hope it is neither taliban nor america but people of afghanistan.you should be ashamed of supporting taliban. they are murderers but you have supported murderers throughout all your journalistic life.
    best wishes

  7. thnak u rabia for apreciating my piece.i do not write very often.but this media mafia got me into it.

    thanks for visiting, destiny! You should write more, your comment was brilliant.

    Great Blog!
    Though you neglected to mention Haroon-ur-Rasheed and Irfan Siddqui and, above all, Javed Choudhry.
    I am personally not so averse to Hamid Mir. I think he is liberal and pro-democratic parties. But that’s just me; I might be wrong.
    You also neglected to mention that Dr Danish talks almost like he is a member of the MQM Raabta Committee.
    They should scrap the ISPR. Because the Pakistani media do a good job for them.
    The only political party that gets good press happens to not be a political party but an extorntion mafia: the MQM.

    Umar I would not call Hamid Mir a liberal, exactly, but I agree he is not in the same category as Javed Choudhry, Irfan Siddiqui and Shahid Masood. BTW you should cast your vote here 🙂

  11. I’d agree with Umar that MQM gets a surprisingly good-faced media coverage! Not taking sides on judging the party, it’s still surprising, considering no other political party is safe from bitter and sometimes, hopelessly moronic, criticism of the media personnel.
