WILL SOMEONE STAND AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY AND MISCONDUCT IN PAKISTAN?

The Grumpy Doctor

A humanitarian crisis is unfolding inside Pakistan as thousands of citizens from every walk of life are protesting against the prime minister after his mega corruption was exposed in Panama papers. The Papers appear to have badly dented the credibility of the Prime Minister. Sharif made a couple of media appearances but failed to reply to Panama Leaks revelations. Citizens, since then, are on roads protesting and demanding his resignation.

Despite remaining peaceful on the whole, the protesters have been met with needless escalation and indiscriminate violence by taxpayer-funded, heavily militarized law enforcement protectors of lives of citizens — whose vested interests in maintaining law and order apparently trump human rights and basic decency.

Chairman PTI Policy Council and Member National Assembly, Asad Umar

In the Mainstream

Asad Umar, by virtue of his personality, history, and political affiliation, ranks among the leading figures in contemporary Pakistani politics. Erstwhile CEO of food production giant Engro Corporation, he began his political career by joining the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf  (PTI) in 2012. Asad Umar heads the Media, Marketing, and Policy division of PTI. He was elected to the National Assembly from NA-48 in the 2013 General Elections.

Asad Umar embodies the PTI’s conviction in ‘change’ as an instrument of socio-economic prosperity in thought, speech, and person. Given the choices he has made over the past few years, and the precedence he has given to the larger over personal interest, one can hardly question his sincerity. His ideas are as convincing as they are powerful. Coupled with the PTI’s revolutionary rhetoric, one hopes that his corporate pragmatism helps translate his, and the party’s, vision into reality.

The Problem With Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf

In January 2011, or perhaps well before, one of Pakistan’s most nearest and dearest cricketers, Imran Khan began his election campaign for May 2013. The campaign hit home; his slogans were change “tabdeeli” and “insaaf” justice – what more could a change-deprived, justice-deprived society ask for? The election campaign was fervent and alive, with marches …
