In Other Blogs: From the Tangerine Courts

Usually, we pick out certain posts from a blog but its rare to find a blog that finds a satirical view on our current political situation. From the Tangerine Courts is a Canada based blog and has some excellent commentary. The author talks about everyone, our political leaders, our president, looks back in the 90’s and motorcycle bound slogan shouters of karachi from that era. But as far as I’ve read, the media’s role in this entire fiasco has been spared. Suggested to us by a reader, who forgot to leave his/her name, the following description was given;

This is a new blog started by a Pakistani individual to discuss his viewpoint on the situations in Pakistan. If you like Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert, you will appreciate this. It is a refreshing, funny, and intelligent piece of commentary and can provide some smiles out of a bleak situation. Some staunch political people might take offense, but still worth a good read nonetheless, please check it out.

Definitely worth a read.

    “every dog has a day”

    You are abusing dogs. Dog is a faithful animal unlike army generals who are not faith to the oath they take in the beginning.

    Those how are criticising Army should be ashamed of them selves. It is the same army how gave comfort to the earth quick effecties in 2005 till now. Army is there in each and every occasion when it is required. It is very easy to sit in your comfortable homes and critcise the army, But just spent one night on Siachen and then you will come to know what it takes to be an Army men. While you guys are sleeping in your beds in night it is the Army Jawans how are safeguarding you from Enemies on our Frontiers. But some people don’t understand that. Criticising the government is the easiest thing to do. It doesn’t cost anyu thing. Thats what all opposition parties are doing right now. How many Laywers and News men killed in last six months, you can count on one hands finger. But hundreds and thousands of army and police men killed in last six months, either in suicide bombings or in tribal areas. Has any body thought about widows and orphans of these security personal. Has media spoken about them ever. NO, because thier family memeber don’t come on roads to protest. No matter whether you call them Pak Army or Napak army, they sill still protect you while you are sleeping in your homes.

    A little reminder everyone. Please refrain from using curse words, derogatory phrases and bad mouthing/insulting (that includes pharses like napak army etc). Avoid going off topic too, I hate moderating but that doesn’t mean I won’t do it. Express your opinion but do not impose them. Above all respect other people’s opinion even if you don’t agree with them.

    If there’s something particular you wish to talk about thats been written on the blog, please copy paste the excerpt.

    The blog is a very interesting read and the author’s opinions and satire are a different way to look at the situation. Going down the beaten path or anti emergency/pro musharraf stopped being productive a while back.

    Happy Commenting!

    i have read the postings and thought this is the funniest stuff yet. It is honest and has a very unique view. I thought some statements were very far off but on the whole, the writer has done a good job and everybody should read this.

    When Politicians can be criticized then why not Army? Army is not a sacred cow neither we are living in that era anymore when when we didn’t know corruption of Army and used to listen songs like ,”Sindhi Ham Balochi Hum,PUnjabi hum pathan dharti k pak foj k jawan ham”, which actually promoted racism and difference by identifying various races in Pakistan.

    @Fas: Condemning Military doesn’t mean condemning Jawans who have been at borders and on places like Siachen. Everyone criticizes corrupt generals,brigadiers who sucked this country like mosquitoes and looted everything. If you think that one just seal his lips then it’s not possible anymore. Ask your generals to quit looting this country, Pakistanis will automatically stop blaming them. Just remember that this is not 80s anymore when Army was considered “Saints” among Pakistanis.

    If you like John Stewart or Stephen Colbert, you might ALSO appreciate our site:
    We are continuing to fight to elect Stephen Colbert as president of the United States somehow, in some way, by some means.

    Also, in regards to this blog: are we sure we want to trust something that comes out of CANADA? This is the same country that probably used some kind of advanced eagle-luring subsonic technology in an underhanded attempt to lure Steagle Colbeagle to their home and native land.

    Think about it…

    With respect,

    He actually grew up in Pakistan and is currently studying in Canada, so he doesn’t really come from Canada.

    pakistan army is not suppose to defend our homeland.
    but this force can and must only be used on its own people.

    thats why foreign country gives aid to pakistan military only not to pakistani people.
