    It’s no hidden fact that Nokia Lumia has been struggling for a while to make its place in the smartphone market. It’s nowhere in the Top 5 smartphone makers of 2014. Although it’s mainly due to the fact that Windows Phone is a relatively new platform but the pathetic Nokia CARE customer service isn’t helping the cause either.

    Jehan
    16 Jan 2015 | 7:37 pm
    As I sat on his bed this morning exactly a year after my Abbaji breathed his last, memories engulfed me of times gone past – of Ammi and Abbaji watching cricket together praying for Team Pakistan to win, of jumping with joy when the team won and forgiving them when they didn’t. Memories of them listening to mushairas, qawwalis and ghazals together or doubling up with laughter while watching Moeen Akhtar, fifty-fifty and other comedy shows on television. Or just watching the news and discussing political issues. That companionship lasted so many decades. It was no wonder then…

    Najma Sadeque was many things to many people – a journalist for over three decades, an activist for many important causes whether it be  human rights, gender rights, the environment, education, economic rights, land rights – you name it. If there was an injustice and Najma spotted it, she would take it on as a personal mission to take a stand against it – not by yelling off the rooftops but by researching the root causes and campaigning for reform through the power of the pen (or the keyboard). Najma was a soft-spoken person with a great sense of humor and the ability to…

They asked us not to make a fuss but we always did. Our parents were very special and whatever little we could do to show them how much we loved them, was nowhere near enough. They deserved much much more. Ammi was a pillar of strength for Abbaji and for all of us. It was difficult to understand how a soft, gentle and loving woman could be the glue that held us together. She was…

A lot of people have said that we were lucky to have had him in our lives for so many years – and I know that we were indeed fortunate. But no matter how old a father is when he passes away, it is too soon. It  leaves a vacuum that is impossible to fill. No day passes by that we don’t think of him, of the person that he was, and all the things he did for us and others.

    By Shanzeh Iqbal How far lifting the moratorium on death penalty would be effective in curtailing terrorism is a matter of debate now. The executions seen as an antidote to terrorism are discussed by some analysts as a feeble method. They argue that the real terrorist has a genuine faith and is not afraid of death; rather he or she is willing to embrace it. So the death penalty may not act as a strong deterrent. In such a scenario, the need for taking concrete steps for eliminating this hazard of terrorism becomes more important especially when the country is in the grip of an existential…

    In the beginning, Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not too sure that Pakistan was a viable option but slowly he realized that there was no other way to safeguard the interests of the Muslims in the Indian subcontinent. He did not fear that the Muslims would be persecuted because of their religion but what was more evident to him was that unless there was a separate piece of land for the Muslims, they would be excluded from all advancement and the power would become vested in the close-knit structure of Hindu society. This is why in March of 1940, Mohammad Ali Jinnah proposed that the Muslims should be…

  • Book Sales in India: Profit Motive Drives Authors Bashing Pakistan

    Have you ever wondered why the publication of anti-Pakistan books has become a major growth industry today? The answer is simple: Authors and publishers of books about Pakistan know where the money is. It’s in India where the book sales are rising rapidly in the midst of continuing global decline. Strong profit motive drives them to write what Indians want to read. Those, like Professor Wendy Doniger of University of Chicago, who ignore this reality are punished by having their books withdrawn and pulped. No publisher wants to take this risk now.
