    @doctor: if you mean his offensive tone with Ary lady Faiza Dawood then I must agree with you that the guy has completely lost his senses. I just heard the voa interview and I got shocked that he used such words on an International radio station in the presence of lady. Some form of enlightment I guess.

    anyway,mushi’s own buddies are creating troubles for him. first naeem,then arbab ghulam and durrani and now Wasi Zafar. Intertional news agencies,one of them is from france are planning to write letter to Dictator to take actions against Wasi for his offensive behaviour against a journalist.

    On the other hand, Punjab bar has issued showcause notices to Wasi Zafar and the advocate for his offensive tone as well as notification of banning channels respectively. They have been asked to appear on 20th march.

    What i see that pro mush are in hibernation mode now. Are they hiding face due to embarassment and shame or they are just not able to digest the real face of their beloved dictator?

    this was aired on geo by kamran khan

    both Ahtizaz Ahsan and Ansar Abbasi told VOA that next time if Wasi Zafar is being called for interview then kindly spare them and don’t call them…

    when too much steam use to built up in past then either PM use to kick the president or President use to kick the PM or Army Chief use to kick both of them… now at present President and army cheif are same and PM is also his own dummy … so either he him self will be kicked by crop commander pindi or maybe he’ll declare a full fledge marshall law… out of frustration… coz things are really heading towards total chaos….

  5. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 1:08 am

    Mush is not a LLB otherwise by now he might himself have already taken the oath and additional charge of chief Justice as well..

  6. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 1:10 am

    i hope my comments about crop commander pindi kicking Mush don’t count as mutiny otherwise i’ll end up just like poor Jawaid Hashmi..(23 years behind bar) ..

    Ahtizaz Ahsan is saying the govt is in state of denial…

  8. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 1:18 am

    I am sure majority of people who listened and might read in papers tomorrow wouldn’t figure out why it appears offensive :-)

    doc, mush is not a politician but then it’s a reality that he’s our president. In Pakistan you don’t need a degree, all you need a “danda” and I am use Wasi was saying all that stuff on the behalf of Foji Danda which he considers more powerful than a God.

    But I must agree that politicians are just cashing the event to vomit out their frustration against Musharraf. It was funny to watch that Nawaz shareed addressing Karachi bar council via Mobile call. *sigh*

    Thanks for the updates and uploads!

    Banezir is acting all weird lately.. she really thinks that she can work something out with the dictator at the behest of US…

  11. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 1:58 am

    Durani also made a laughing stock out of himself during Hamid Mir’s Capital Talk with Ahtizaz Ahsan and Ansar Abbasi…

    i think both Durani and Wasi Zafar should be awarded pride of performance by the dictator…

  12. SELF (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 2:22 am

    “But the time for Mush’s packing his bags with all his lot is very NEAR.”

    I would prefer surety the next one would not be as bad or even worst.

  13. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 2:40 am

    no surety, this is Pakistan,so no warranties or guarantees…

  14. BoZz (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 3:10 am

    Isn’t there a kind of duplicity being accepted here.

    I quote – “CJ Iftikar saying that justice Abdul Hameed Dogar, Justice Jawaid Iqbal and the CJ of Lahore Highcourt sitting on supreme judicial council are biased and all of them were facing a reference that he was to hear in coming days…
    among the 5 justices sitting on SJC , 3 are known to be biased against CJ Iftikar and 2 are pro CJ Iftikar… so the verdict will be 3:2 in favour of govt”

    By virtue of that statement and by agreeing with it, you all are accepting that all five judges of the Supreme Court are unfair, partial, prejudiced and subjective. Hardly a qualification for any law keeper leave alone for the justices of the highest court of the land.

    True or not, I cannot fathom how you can gulp this with so much ease and digest it so easily.

    I too abhor the methods used in this country to remove people from their posts, this is not the first time and in all probability not the last time either. However blindly proceeding as a mob for lynching will hardly get you any justice in the end.

    US looks at plan to oust Musharraf

    THE US has indicated for the first time that it might be willing to back plans by elite echelons of the military in Islamabad to oust Pervez Musharraf from power, as the Pakistani President was beset by major new difficulties over his attempts to sack the country’s chief justice.,20867,21378237-2703,00.html

    Folks, we just posted a direct audio link to the full VOA program with Wasi Zafar, Aitizaz Ahsan and Ansar Abassi. The incident in question starts at around minutes 34.

  17. Adnan (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 10:09 am

    Its not surprising if US is backing Bibi now. They want a non-military plan of War on Terror and Bibi Already said that she could guard american intrests more efficiently than Musharraf.

  18. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 11:10 am

    @SELF maybe coz of that news .. only Shaukat Aziz choose to leave on a foreign trip and Mush is staying back in Islamabad to consolidate his grip and to make sure no coup against him take place… more then the Vice Chief i would expect Corp Commander Pindi to play crucial role in any such senario… or maybe when Mush is visiting area of any other Corp Commander

    Wasi Zafar:

    Extract of dirt, a soul with disbalanced mental state, in bulky human body, verbally venomous, dangerously low level of mentality, dangerously inept in written and spoken languages of civilised world, zero control on expressions & spoken language, have no command & control found living in highly power toxicated environment, have no respect for humanity, for common people & media, 1st discovered in Jaranwala, elevated and placed to handle situations with the qualities described above, by the people of same values.

    لگتا ہے کہ موجودہ سیاسی ہلچل جسٹس چوہدری کے جانے پر نہیں بلکہ صدر مشرف کی حقیقت سے دوری کی ایک واضح مثال سامنے آنے پر ہے۔

    For the comment Posted by: lost_in_the_maze at March 13, 2007 12:53 PM

    I say Ameen.

    May the streets of cantonements and garrisons become red with the blood of generals.


  22. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 12:14 pm

    if you ever get a chance to pass through Wasi zafar’s home town Jaranwala then you’ll notice the wall chalking against him on every street… i mean if this guy stands for a local councilor seat.. he will miserably loose that election too i dunno how he managed to win MNA seat … only logical reason that he is a MNA is coz his brother is a senior military figure in defense ministry…

  23. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 12:18 pm

    i just hope that poor Ansar Abassi and his family are fine.. coz both Durani and Wasi zafar are annoyed with him

  24. Jamal Shamsi (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 1:10 pm

    Ansar Abbasi with his all family members shall leave the country immediately – Allah save him & his family, – Ameen!

  25. omar r. quraishi (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 2:39 pm

    I just spoke to Ansar Abbasi — he is fine

  26. SELF (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 2:43 pm

    I think “they” will deal with him a bit later. Right now it’s too much of a hot potato for “them”.

  27. Jamal Shamsi (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 3:36 pm

    @ Omar R Quraishi SIR are u the crickter commentator cum Journalist writing for DAWN ?

    I MEAN NO Offence at all – just curious…

    finally i managed to download the VOA clip – without doing anything on a PC for2 hours 35 minutes –

    Wasi Zafar must be outta his mind or DRUNK when online with VOA.

    In right state of mind, no dignified person can speak such language in public., let alone be in privacy.

  28. SELF (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 3:53 pm

    “no dignified person”….


  29. d0ct0r (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 3:59 pm

    @Jamal crickter commentator/Sports writer was Omar Kureishi .. he died back in March 2005

  30. MB (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 4:59 pm

    As per “Critic” at ALL THINGS PAKISTAN :
    someone has updated Wasi Zafar’s profile on wikipedia and included his VOA episode. Hurrah for freedom of opinion and a double hurrah for Pakistani press

  31. MB (unregistered) on March 14th, 2007 @ 5:07 pm

    After failing to come up with anything , here is what the joker aka Wasi Zafar could come up with :

    پاکستان کے وفاقی وزیرِ قانون جناب وصی ظفر نے انکشاف کیاہےکہ معطل چیف جسٹس افتخار چودھری کے خلاف سپریم جوڈیشل کونسل میں حکومت کی طرف سے دائر ریفرنس میں سپریم کورٹ کی طرف سےسٹیل مل کی نج کاری کے خلاف فیصلے کے بارے میں حکومتی تحفظات بھی شامل ہیں۔ تاہم انھوں نے اس کی تفصیلات بتانے سے معذوری ظاہر کی
