    Imran Khan, being worshipped by his trolls, is a mixture so self-extremes. His stance has always been swinging between extremes. He had offered a Rep Office in Pakistan to Taliban. He has vehemently opposed Military Operation in North Waziristan but on Eid day was enjoying lamb roasts in exclusive lunch at the heavily-guarded tent while the IDPs were not allowed to come in. It reminded us of famine in Thar when the Sindh CM Qaim Ali Shah while visiting the famine-hit people was enjoying sumptuous meal at the relief camp.

    another propaganda spread by mqm and even yesterday ik made it clear that “Now we’ll meet on August 14″ & PTI 14th august long march is on schedule. MQM needs ministers that why they spread this stupid rumor

    Pathetic journalism continues. Imran says march will proceed; some clerk in MQM says no it will not. Who should we believe? Imran, of course.

    Once the new government is in place, one the first priorities should be to hold the media responsible for all the lies they spew just to fill a page.

    They are given a designated spot and do not disrupt the citizens .

    He should be allowed to do the march in Ayub wildlife park after getting due permission.

    But PTI should not hold Islamabad hostage with thier petulant demands

    @Aysha M:
    sure interests of nation above all , what about interests of its die hard core supporters and voters,
    quota system still on jobs and admissions
    no local govt , no transport reforms , no locally recruited policing ,
    no city govt with directly elected mayor
    what about long forgotten ex pakistanis in the camps of bungladesh
    what about least developement funds for urban sind ,
    least grant to KU , no university for hyderabad , the city which equally loyal to MQM past 30 years , i would say more than karachi , hardly any votes to PTI , where karachi mummy daddys very foolishly voted for PTI.
    the list goes on , so many karachiites extra judicially killed , still waiting to know about fahad , the groom arrested from his wedding .I am ardent MQM supporter but these things do come to my mind , more frequently than ever before MQM must pay serious attention these core issues we feel this is the only party who address and has the ability to solve.

    The problem with us all that we tend to forget the past. Your MQM who places interest of nation above all, killed innocent 50 people on May 12, 2007 and woudn’t allow Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to leave the Karachi airport. Then murder appa Zahara Shahid Hussain of PTI was also in the national interest And millions of pounds that Mr. Altaf was keeping at his house was definately to keep the interest of our nation above all…I really dont think so!!

    Considering the rifts between PTI and MQM, The tone of PTI and other factors it seems highly unlikely that such will be the case, despite the prevailing situation, A call off now will be a hammer blow to Imran Khans Politics, so i believe let PTI leadership decide, while MQM should concentrate more on their eid collections from Karachi (no offence to MQM supporters)

IK will issue some more harsh statements and at the end will come have jalsa and go back to his normal routine. All politicians think Pakistani public is fool and they are right as many fools think IK and Tahir ul Qadri will bring inqulab with all lootas rejected by public….!
