General Hamid Gul: The Bin Laden In Boots

Aug 23, 2015 Mohammad Taqi

General Hamid Gul was the military equivalent of Osama bin Laden who died with his boots on and blood of the innocents on his hands.

Soft Coup, Hard Reset?

Aug 21, 2014 Mohammad Taqi

It's Nawaz Sharif's decision to continue the judicial proceedings against Musharraf that remain at the heart of the current crisis, the ultimate beneficiary of which would be the military establishment


Beware The Holy Warriors

One of the most detailed accounts of the doctrine(s), strategy, tactics and goals of the Pakistani Salafi jihadist enterprise Markaz Dawa’-wal-Irshad (MID), the terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and its parent outfit Jama’t-ud-Dawa (JuD)

The US Think Tank Debate

A Legend By Any Definition

Mohammad Taqi

Mohammad Yousuf Khan, a.k.a Dilip Kumar, or ‘Daleep’ Kumar’s 90th birthday is also being celebrated in Peshawar today

Frenemies Forever

Mohammad Taqi

Without Pakistan reversing the reverse strategic depth it has given to the jihadists all this talk of ‘paradigm shift’ will remain hogwash.

His Master’s Voice

Mohammad Taqi

So we are back to medieval times and the medieval discourse whether music is halaal (permissible) in Islam or is explicitly haraam (forbidden).

The 'New Pakistan'

Mohammad Taqi

Pakistan remains a country where the India-oriented Punjabi jihadists rule the roost and religious minorities continue to be hounded and eliminated physically.

Beyond Borders

Mohammad Taqi

In 1969, people from Peshawar descended on Kabul in droves to watch Aradhana. And when Rajesh Khanna died, notwithstanding a few rants, Pakistanis also mourned the demise of the prince of passion.

A Lesson You Won’t Forget

Mohammad Taqi

It purports to actually put forth a unique and authentic perspective on the Taliban (their ‘aesthetic dimension’), but there is remarkably little that has been done to introduce the original 'poems'.

For A Few Dollars More

Mohammad Taqi

From Jinnah To GHQ: Not much has changed in 65 years in Pakistani thinking but what has changed is that Pakistan is no longer a geopolitical pivot.

Judging The Judges

Mohammad Taqi

Descent Into Repackaging

Mohammad Taqi

Mohammad Taqi

The Pakistani foreign policy elite must stop projecting Taliban terrorists as peacemakers lest they intend to unleash another series of unfortunate events in the region just like the 1990s.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Mohammad Taqi

Memogate, an ambassador's resignation and appointment, and an openly confrontational approach by Pakistan since the NATO attack in Mohmand Agency are not a knee-jerk response...


23 November, 2011

Between Memo And Military

Mohammad Taqi

Was it the alleged memo or was it the consistent advocacy of civilian supremacy, first as a scholar and then as an envoy, which earned Haqqani the junta’s wrath and cost him his job?
