JK protests for Imran’s release

Visuals of Jemima Khan protesting in front of the Pakistan High Commission in London have been flashing over the world’s media for quite some days. Yesterday, she again joined a group of some 500 British-Pakistanis to ask for her ex-husband’s release and return to democratic rule in Pakistan.

And, stood in front of her, Imran’s younger tiger :)

    Oh come on now we have had enough of these media antics, if there are some who want to struggle then they should struggle the way it is done. Even peaceful protests spearheaded by Gandhi and Nelson Mandela disrupted the government functioning in some way. This entire show casing does not effect the government, but is tantamount to washing our dirty laundry for media consumption, which will eventually result in job losses in this country and drive away opportunities from our youth.

    Bringing about change is not an indoor sport, what I see in the blogs is a lot of mutual appreciation for virtual struggle which can only bring about virtual change, and when the head gear is removed the reality would still be the same.

    On a side noe The tiger should carry the placard “I will not spare you Jamatees”

    I feel sorry for her son, but Jemima is a very clever media manipulator. She shouldn’t be bringing young kids to a spirited protest like that, especially ones who are probably already scared for their dad. But it makes a better picture and elicits more sympathy doesn’t it Jemima?

    Imran won

    Look at this, its a big win for him. Its his ex-wife protesting for him. Usually when couples breakup, they have rather ill-feelings about their ex, but wow!!!

    I bet, Altaf would be more jealous of Imran now, since Altaf’s ex-wife doesn’t have any good feeling for him at-all.

    Imran you have won this, my next vote is for you. Done with Altaf. No more blank checks for Altaf. Altaf called creation of Pakistan a blunder, next he would call ‘Accepting Islam’ as blunder, just to please his masters.

    Is it real love or real fame?

    It shows that Jemima actually cares about Pakistan. Rex, nowadays you cannot hide things from kids. Someone or the other in school would probably ask him about what his father was going through. This way atleast he might feel better by being part of something.

    Imran is on hunger strike. Sign this petition that has been raised to help

    Not feeling too optimistic abt Pakistan at the moment….

    Now look at that? I bet Imran would have not done that for her. He would be too busy trying to get his hand on a seat closer to the throne(aka head of state of Pakistan). Imran Khan should maybe spend more time giving pointers to our cricketers rather than doing these media antics. I have no respect for a man who when winnging the World Cup only talked about his own glory and didnt even thank the team.
