Satire well done


Rehan Masood April 16, 2010

KARACHI: Fasi Zaka's article Brasstricks was the most pathetic and boring piece of satire (if you can call it that) I have ever read. Zaid Hamid is a wonderful topic to write on but neither Fasi Zaka nor Nadeem F Paracha are writing anything good on him. I wish Ibn-e-Insha were alive today, he would have done a brilliant job.

Natasha | 11 years ago | Reply I dont see any difference between the two. What they write are frankly failed attempts at comical satire- thanks to their obsession for the laal topi wale commander saab.
Fayyaz Alam | 11 years ago | Reply I am facing the same problem. Since Ibne Insha is not alive, I'm sticking with Fasi Zaka! Atleast he can write on topics that are current, unlike Ibne Insha. Maybe Ibne Insha was too innocent (and slim) and God didn't want him to see this day where 'self-mad Caliphs' are roaming freer than cattles!
