“Maulana” Fazlul Rehman needs no introduction to Pakistanis. He appears as a religious scholar of sort however no one has witnessed this scholarship as yet. He is renowned more for his political jugglery.
Recently Maulana had a heart trouble and needed angioplasty. The operation was carried out successfully in a private hospital in Lahore by Dr Mubashar Ahmad who came especially from US for this purpose.  Ironically Dr Mubashar Ahmad is an Ahmadi! Here (in Urdu) is the news that puts it this way;

“وہ (يعنی مولانا) ایک ایسی جماعت کے سربراہ ہیں جو احمدیوں کے خلاف مہم چلانے والوں میں پیش پیش ہے لیکن وہ اپنا علاج اسی مسلک سے تعلق رکھنے والے معالج سے کراسکتے ہیں۔”

Maulana who would not accept Ahmadis at “Qaleedee” (key) posts in Pakistan is quite happy to entrust his own life in the hands of an Ahmadi. Also Maulana who would normally advocate boycotting Ahamdis in every sphere, is in no mood of boycotting this Ahmadi when Maulana’s own benefit is involved. Lucky for the doctor, Maulana survived…or it would have been another Qadiani conspiracy.

OK everyone has it so I need to have it too. This is the Rickshaw which is the talk of the town if you consider this world a town. First here it is;

Lahore Rickshaw

Now for my comments, I agree with Bilal Zuberi that message is sarcastic but I want to add that it has a sense of resignation that the process of enlightenment would not stop and one can only now make some sarcastic remarks about it instead of being able to stop it in someway.

Laloo Prasad Yadav died. Rabri Devi (his wife) was very worried whether
Laloo would be able to make it to heaven, so she decided to try  and contact
his spirit by having a séance  (i.e. Black magic used to contact the dead)

Sure enough, after the usual mumbo-jumbo of calling to the spirits, Laloo’s
voice was heard answering,

“Helloooooooo Rabri, this is meeee…”

“Oh dear Lalooji,” she answered. “I just need to know if you’re happy there
in your after-life. What’s it like there?”

“Ooooooh, it’s much more beautiful here than I ever imagined,” Laloo
answered. “The sky is bluer, the air is cleaner, and the pastures are much
more lush and green than I ever expected …. and, above all, there
is no scam! And the only things  we do, all day long, are, eat and sleep, eat
and sleep, over and over.”
“Thank God, you reached heaven,” his  Rabri cried, wiping some tears.

“Heaven?”he answered. “What heaven? I’m reborn…..   “I’m a buffalo in
Switzerland.”

Another person has been charged under the notorious Pakistani blasphemy law and this law has again come under scrutiny of those who are concerned for the human rights situation in Pakistan. Here (in Urdu) is the original news and here (again in Urdu) is some discussion on it.

Needless to say this law has brought nothing but notoriety to Pakistan and Islam and has only served to turn the wider world antagonistic of the two. The sooner this law is repealed the better it is for both Pakistan and Islam.
