Emperor Musharaf's New Clothes

12th October 1999 - "Have to hear this guy! whatever is going on is unbelievable!"
3rd November 2007 - "What the hell does he want to say now?!"

The above equates almost what I had in mind.

Mr. Musharraf.. whatever you are selling.. we are'nt buying it. Whatever credibility you had.. has been lost. I was perhaps the biggest supporter of yours - now I dont give a damn to the explanations you give.

You are not the saviour, you are not indispensable, you are not infallible.

The common man may not come on streets... cuz they are too busy trying just to survive. My friend asked a bread maker (tandoor wala) that emergency has been imposed. He replied "Will it lower the prices of essentials?"

Please do not consider us idiots. Nawaz, BB, you - all of the same category. Just your interests to safeguard.

It sucks really. By the way.. you are not wearing anything.

I agree with your comments, the common man is unfortunately too busy trying to earn enough to feed his family and barely survive. He cannot afford to come on the streets and the selected few elites are too concerned about their personal benefits only AND that allows the current administration to continue their tyranny. This cannot last forever and eventually people will recognize that in order for the country to survive sacrifices will need to be made. We all must do whatever little we can do in our own spheres.

It's sad, Mush was the only hope for a stable Pakistan. he also is trodding the wrong line, he has not only created an international image crash, sooner or later when emergency is over he will be in trouble and unfortunately, the not so competent will control the power then.

Dear All,

Most of us are not aware of what is happening around us due to a COMPLETE media blackout.

One of Pakistan's leading private news channels, GEO, now provides an online streaming service both audio and video.

You can access this service at the following email address:

The students at LUMS held a VERY successful peaceful rally today on their campus. Details of the rally as well as other news regarding the emergency situation in Pakistan are posted regularly on the following blog:

Whether you're pro-martial law, anti-establishment, socialist, communist... YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO THE TRUTH and this is one way we are bringing it to YOU.

However, most of Pakistan is in the dark. HELP PAKISTAN by making sure each and every one of you KNOWS the TRUTH.

Spread the word! Paste this blog site EVERYWHERE you can. Print and distribute articles if you can.

It's the least you can do.

Prayers, hope, and much love.

- The Students of Pakistan.
