    No doubt if Shujaat Hussain has started this Tahir al Qadri is doing this for a long time in Europe and collecting funds for his party from both hands.

    journalism pakistani style. Majority of the storeis carried in the urdu press are so depressing that to maintain balance and give the readers a sense of relief they publish this kind of stuff.

    I agree, Shujaat Hussain lover is not the ‘proper’ translation. When you read this in urdu, you get a feeling as if Shujaat Hussain is some prophet or something.When I see such politicians, I don’t blame them; afterall, they are from ‘us’ and represent ‘pakistanies.’ The other two news are really interesting and very typical of Urdu Jang Akhbaar; I couldn’t stop smiling while reading them.

    I have a feeling that the members of the ‘Shujaat Lovers Wing’ like eating ‘baingan’ and that too in a ‘thaali’. No point in translating this because it cannot be translated.
