NFP On Karachi, the MQM, and Fascists
I have been hoping to put my thoughts on events in Karachi on May 12th, and the fall-out together. Then I stumbled back into something written by an old, old associate--the man's gone through a lot in the years since I knew him, but his voice and his content is still as clear, as unconventional, and as capable of inducing discomfort in the reader or listener. So for those who comment and go on and on about Karachi, here's something to think about--from one of Pakistan's most acerbic, uncompromising (the Urdu word I am thinking of is "تلخ") voices in Pakistan.
