Goodbye to Democracy Pakistan Under Dictatorship & Censorship:FIA arrests Qazi Jalal for ‘tweeting against judiciary’



FIA arrests PTI activist Qazi Jalal for ‘tweeting against judiciary’

PESHAWAR: Federal Investigation Agency’s cyber crime wing Peshawar has arrested a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf social-media activist for allegedly posting a message against the judiciary on social-media website Twitter, sources in the federal agency confirmed Wednesday. Qazi Jalal of the PTI has been charged under Sections 36 and 37 of the Pakistan Electronic Transactions Ordinance 2002 and has been remanded under FIA custody for two days.


In the FIR, Qazi Jalal has been charged under Sections 36 & 37 of the Electronic Transactions Ordinance (ETO). These sections have been routinely used to charge people with ‘cyber crimes.’ More details of the case have yet to emerge. He is currently in custody and likely to get a bail hearing before court tomorrow.

Jalal’s arrest in light of the upcoming PECB and current application of ETO sets a dangerous precedent.

People’s use of online media to express themselves in connection to others is problematic and needs to be addressed. But arrests are excessive. There is a lot that falls into a grey area and is subject to people’s opinions. There’s a need to kickstart a discussion on this ‘grey area’ where privacy and speech are concerned. Loosely worded laws and vague applications of them will land everyone in jail. Today it’s a PTI activist, tomorrow it could be someone from another party, a political commentator or analyst or even an average citizen. Sooner or later it will happen. Responsible use of online platforms is a conversation we have just not had and need to, but excessive controls and action are no healthy alternate.’

Celebrities and political leaders have no personal life but we still need to avoid useless gossip. On the other hand, we have the chance to learn from different situations.


Ten months is a very short time and marriages don’t end so quickly even for Hollywood actors. Very bad both of them! They should have stayed together for much longer. Marriages based on attraction for looks, power or wealth normally fail so quickly, not when two people come together sensibly looking for long commitment in life.





















People generally follow role-models they have formed in their minds. The couple has set wrong trends for the society, sorry to say. We are not happy, rather very disappointed by this sad occurrence. When IK held a humble ceremony instead of a lavish wedding function, and invited poor children, it was very inspirational. But not this divorce after a short wedding span of 10 months. We should think rationally instead of blind following of PTI and IK. Fans of both persons should better wake up now! – S Roman Ahsan.




In the last meeting between Late Dr. Israr Ahmad and Late Qazi Hussain Ahmad, Late Dr. Israr ahmad gave his last advice to Qazi Hussain Ahmad who was then Ameer of Jamat-e-Islami to give up election politics. The main leadership of Jamat-e-Islami was also present.


Apart from him, many other scholars also condemn election politics.


The current electoral political system in Pakistan will yield no positive result for the overall betterment of the country, especially when the literacy rate is very low. How can these people have the sense to elect good leaders?


Votes are earned by doing small favours to poor masses or by treating them to a meal or by even providing them pick & drop service to the polling stations. Also, the main concern is that sovereignty lies with ALLAH but in democracy the majority decides what is good for you. And then we know also that majority does not subscribe to the ultimate truth. Let’s hope one day we realize this and fight the system.

[Late Dr. Israr’s efforts in awakening Islam and for creating awareness to launch Islamic ruling system are laudable though we don’t subscribe fully to his Islamic school of thought]
