Abid the Fugitive by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz Created On: 22/Sep/2020 Views: 284 Replies: 0 
It is now more than 10 days and 4 or 5 attempts that the police has failed to nab the alleged rapist and the fugitive Abid. Every time the police closes upon him in his reportedly new hideout he manages to melt away dogging them. I wonder why don’t the police take the sniffer dogs with them, cordon off the area, ap Click here to read Full Article

September 65 and the Nation by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 15/Sep/2020 Views:321 Replies:0 
In early September 1965 clouds of war were gathering ominously but had not burst as yet. On 5th September a van stopped alongside my car at Elphinstone Street Karachi and its driver seeing me listening to the news on my car radio, eagerly asked, “Has Pakistan declared war?”. “No” I replied, but could see the disappointment writ large on his face. Early next morning the Indians started it but trea Click here to read Full Article
Investiture Ceremony by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 9/Sep/2020 Views:323 Replies:0 
It was quite reassuring for an old soldier to see that in the Defence Day Awards investiture ceremony the recipients of the awards while receiving the award from the President were not jerking their faces towards the camera to get themselves foootooographed, an unfortunate practice which has crept in lately and seen in our almost all award and prize distribution ceremonies.

The Honourable Legislators by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 27/Aug/2020 Views:361 Replies:0 
It is really distressing to watch some of the TV Talk Shows where the honourable members of the parliament shower each other with slanderous invectives like Chor, Daku, Lutera, Corrupt, Money Launderer, Tax Evader, Fraudulent, Dishonest, Deceitful and even Traitor so profusely that it leaves the poor viewer askance as to how do they swallow it all?! Why don’t these men of honour sue the assailan Click here to read Full Article
Independence Day or Birth Day by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 16/Aug/2020 Views:385 Replies:0 
We have been celebrating 14th of August as the Independence Day for the past seven decades or so, which I think in the real essence is not very proper. There was no Pakistan before 14 August 1947 on which date it was created by partitioning the sub continent of India. It took its birth and came into being on this date as a free country. Agreed, India was ruled by the British and was liberated, bu Click here to read Full Article
 
Crescent Controversy-3 by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 8/Aug/2020 Views:380 Replies:0 
Apropos my earlier letters of 22nd July and 2nd August asking to watch the full moon (14th of the moon) on 3rd August, quite a few friends have written to me that the moon tonight (3rd August) looked to be the full moon, that is; it was the 14th of ZulHajj. If it is so, then the new moon had appeared on the 2 Click here to read Full Article
Crescent Controversy-2 by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 8/Aug/2020 Views:377 Replies:0 
In my letter Crescent Controversy of 22 July 2020 delving upon the controversy of Sighting the Moon by Science against Scriptures, I had suggested a simple solution to decide the issue by examining the 14th of the moon on the date it falls. If the full moon, which is always a perfect round disk and can Click here to read Full Article
 
LOC Violations by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 15/Jul/2020 Views:365 Replies:0 
Every second day the Indian High Commissioner or his deputy is summoned by the Foreign Office to be served with a strong protest for firing across the LOC and killing innocent civilians on our side. The High Commissioner drives down to the Foreign office from his embassy in an impressive black limo flying Indian flag in full view of the public. As it happens too frequently, the car carrying the HC Click here to read Full Article
Traffic Police Outlook by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 11/Jun/2020 Views:363 Replies:0 
I think the prime duty of the traffic police is the prevention of accidents but somehow it confines itself mostly to the regulation of traffic and in the case accidents their action is more of punitive than preventive or remedial. Just to elucidate: the Traffic Wardens always stand on the other side of the traffic light or the speed limit zone, as if just to ambush the violator after letting him Click here to read Full Article
 
Corona SOPs by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 1/Jun/2020 Views:310 Replies:0 
Let’s face it, we are not a disciplined nation nor are we an educated one. On the contrary we are ignorant and badly misinformed mass of people believing in supra naturals, myths and mythologies, rituals and practices without knowing the rationale behind them. Unfortunately, our semi-literate clergy who has a great hold on our masses is at daggers draw with the modern, scientific and logical inter Click here to read Full Article
Respectable Lawyers by Col. Syed Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 3/Dec/2019 Views:818 Replies:0 
The Honourable CJP Asif Saeed Khosa addressing the lawyers in Multan nostalgically reminisced the respect lawyers were shown in the years bygone and sorrowfully wondered why it was no more there. He being the son of a lawyer and having been one himself should be able to fathom out the cause for it. I think Professional Degradation & Avarice of the Black Coats could be summed up as the reason for s Click here to read Full Article
