Owais Mughal and Jauhar Ismail

The division of opinion between the column writers of Urdu and English press in Pakistan has been quite stark in the past few years. May be we are generalizing the above statement too much but some degree of truth is not hidden from any regular reader of both Urdu and English print media. In the last few days, we have seen a significant increase in the number of Urdu columnists who admit that they can’t deny the ugly reality that Pakistan has become the hub of bad guys and we need to act now for the sake of our own future. Some examples of this new shift is evident from today’s (12/21) Jang columns:
(1) Sadiq Saleem’s “mohazib dunya ka hissa baniye”,
(2) Rauf Klasra’s “jang se bachna hi bahaadri hoti hai” and
(3) Jeevan Khan’s “qaumi salamti ke taqaazay”.
