  • Disgusted

    Soccer should be Pakistani National game. It is extremely inexpensive game and requires lot of physical energy.
    I can't keep my eyes of the stadium it is that exciting. Not to mention most of the Muslim Arab countries crazy about this game. Hundreds of Lyari young talented boys go in oblivion and get involved in Gang and drugs activities because of the neglect in this sport.

    allah ne izat to di ap ko but ap ne qadr nahi ki shoib akhtar is right,

  • Nonelitepakamerican

    The problem with the Pakistani people is that they have very few options of entertainment, especially in sports.

    A nation with an identity crises, religious vs. westernization issues and lack of governing, lack of leadership and the most important of all lack of "heros" clings on to hand few people and expects them to fulfill all their desires.

    Shahid Afridi has made a lot of Pakistanis proud and has overachieved under the limited resources of one of the most mismanaged and corrupt nation on earth.

    We should respect his achievements and graciously except the fact that every athlete has a prime and eventual decline.

    Pakistan, one of the top ten countries (population) have won no medals in Olympics and is in the bottom of all sports, except our common Pakistanis heard work and God given telnet we see some surprises.

    As organized national sport activities, we are the same as our other facites of life, the economy, the law and order, the education and the governance.

    Champions Trophy of shame, a colonizers sport for the occupied colonies……

    Pakistan,bleeding,burning and falling apart:

    Lets keep the eye on the ball, Pakistan's current situation.

    I will try to write about the big picture in next few days and request all the paid politcal dung beetles to be objective.

    Pakistan is at stake and this politcal drama of this deadly gang war between different politcal mafias and crimnal power grab is labeled as some strange war of the good democratic psychopath killers and religiously motivated insane people.

    Look around the world and try to analyze where Pakitan stands, Turkey & Brazil model or the middle eastern death and distraction model by the help of democracy Westren style, simply creating ethnically and religious war zones for infighting for the rest of eternity.

    No Protests in Pakistan, lnot even againest the drone killings, ethnic clensing, terrorisam or NATO spplies, Pakistan is finically on the brink of bankruptcy unlike Brazil and Turkey where the national narrative was ingrained by the corrupt ruling elite stressing that these countries were not the countries of the future, the future has arrived and they aspire to be global powers.

    Lets look at the two countries which achived some successes using the current failed capitalist and democracy Westren style, Turky and Brazil, both are having mass unrest and protests.

    Brazil was a country on overdrive – from securing the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics a part of the BRICS group of emerging powers, unlike China, Brazil was breathlessly exploiting natural resources ( from its hinterland to parts of Africa) while betting heavily on large agribusiness mostly supplying, you guess it, China, the same carrot thrown to majority poor and hopeless Pakistani by the Current Pakistani western compromised ruling elites.

    Unlike the desperate need of current Paki elites to become a hedonic nation to attract Western orgy of self indulgence(sex,drugs and rock and role) or the soft power (Paki attempt of soft power, hedonic media and political leadershit of sexually perverted and westernized elites) Brazil has a lavish accumulation of soft power (music, football, beautiful beaches, beautiful women, endless partying).

    Brazil was finally enjoying the benefits of a quarter of a century of participative democracy and some affirmative action for the poor to bring 40 million people into middle class.

    What went wrong in Brazil? Now compare it with Pakistan which in a worse way with the Afghanistan occupation and civil war.

    Brazil remained one the most (deadly) unequal nations in the world, peppered with retrograde landowning oligarchies and some of the most rapacious, arrogant and ignorant elites,on the planet, inevitable by-products of ghastly Portuguese colonialism.

    Just change this to Pakistani situation. "Pakistan remained one the most (deadly) unequal nations in the world, peppered with retrograde landowning oligarchies and some of the most rapacious, arrogant and ignorant elites,on the planet, inevitable by-products of ghastly British colonialism.

    And then, once again, corruption raised its Hydra-like head. Here’s a first parallel with Turkey and Pakistan, In Brazil as in Turkey, participative democracy was co-opted, ignored or forcefully diluted among an orgy of “mega-projects” generating dubious profits for a select few. In Turkey it revolves around the ruling party AKP’s collusion with business interests in the “redevelopment” of Istanbul; in Brazil around public funds for the hosting of the World Cup and the Olympics.

    The new capitalist dream could not mask that the quality of life in Brazil’s, Turkey and Pakistan's big cities seemed to be on a downward spiral; and that especially in Karachi racism especially in the police – never went away while the demonization of peasant, working class non urdu speaking and Native Karachi leaders was rampant; after all they were obstructing the way of powerful western interests, control of the ports and the“mega-projects” craze, just watch the PMLN's plans of "mega projects", sounds familiar?

    Pakistan is on the verge of a brakeup by the help of Westren powers and Indian design using the ethnic politcal divide and rule time tested model.

  • punjabi

    Punjabion ka kam heera mandi chalana hy – ye baghairat cricket nahee khel sakte.

    • Prof. Mian (USA)

      After reading the abusive language you are using, what kind of opinion readers would carry about you internationally? I am teaching media/communication related subjects at the university level for the past 25 years in the USA. For God sake do not tarnish an already ugly image of our great country but help to undo it. It is something very simple but great that you would do without making any big sacrifce.
      Request: Please do not write anything and everything just beacuse you can write it. Simply make the best use of it Thanks!

    • naek niyyat

      You cannot be a Pakistani spouting your venom to get Pakistanis fighting between themselves. this is the work of some hindu.I will not drop to your level by abusing you, i will leave it at that.

    • Neil

      Even being Indian , I like your command on English and your honest observation. I strongly believe India and Pakistan , both have lot to do a lot for their own people. We both are knowingly or un-knowingly being used by western policy maker as their battle ground of thoughts. I wish God , Allah , Jesus , whatever you believe to give some brain to our politicians ( of both countries ) to wake up. Get out of this stupid race of unresting each other and be brothers like Canada and USA. We can create one powerful duo of neighbors who will not need IMF or UN or any other countries , ever. Please continue with your thoughts…Good job,,

      • Nonelitepakamerican

        My dear, India is the land of our ancestors and we are bound by genetic bond, the religious difference between people should be considered another form of diversity and we all should give room to each other for their believes.

        You can analyze current Indian situation in the same way…India shinning mantra of the Indian ruling elites is blinding the majority poor to the point of mass hunger, unrest and hopelessness. The shine of the boots of Indian elites is more than the shine in the eyes of majority Indian poor.

      • Nonelitepakamerican

        Ethical, this I my free opinion and not a copyright paid content. You took effort to make me look bad? Not that I give a rats asss to your stupid mental disorder, I took inspiration from the article and connected the dotes to current Pakistani situation.

        You stupid fool, all the articles written are based on research and understanding by reading and learning.

        This is my free opinion, have some balls to add to it or repute it …

      • Nonelitepakamerican

        You idiot, do you take me for some professional writer? What is your opinion of my comment? Do you have an opinion or just your job is to track my free content in an opinion form. Maybe what I am writing now is also written? ;)

      • Nonelitepakamerican

        My comment was based of the article and if it was a school work or an article, one must add the source to it, since it was just a comment, I did not pay attention.

        The fact that there are people who are cross checking what I say, makes me feel "wanted" :)
