Pied Piper’s Papa from Pakistan

The Peak of a President’s Unpopularity

with 2 comments

“When elephants fight, ants get trampled,” or so the Urdu saying goes. But how often do we see ants fighting and hurting an elephant in the process?

Khwaja Asif of PML (N), a few days back, alleged that Amin Fahim had been meeting the President of Pakistan, in secrecy in the past. Amin threatened him back with a Defamation Notice, which Asif has just confirmed to have received.

This is extraordinary since in Pakistan defamation notices are strictly a rarity, and one often gets money for defaming others. Yes “MONEY”.  It is also exceptional since the apparent reason for the defamation happens to be the allegations of meetings with the President; something which otherwise should be a source of pride for any Pakistani.

I always thought one wouldn’t go lower after having hit the ground. A friend enlightened that disgrace is a bottomless pit, and one could keep falling forever, and still keep falling.Isn’t it time for Mush to go? Or shall we wait for more “I-know-you-met-the-President-last-summer” allegations, and counter defamation notices flying around like paper kites on a Basant day.

  2. Nice to see you laughing, finally 🙂
    Yes, but I wrote it to make people weep on the state of affairs. But lately, everything I type makes me laugh myself. See, State of Affairs.
    State of Laughing Affairs. Affairs of a Laughing State. Laughing Affairs . State of Jokes. State Jokes 🙂
