These are the times that try men's souls

The present crisis in Pakistan and the fascist reign of terror unleashed by the Pak army and police, and abetted by the corrupt PDM leaders, which has violated the rule of law and all human rights in Pakistan, is throwing up heroes, and has  exposed the real face of the weathercocks, carereerists, time servers, self seekers and wheeler dealers in Pakistani politics.

Among the former category, and leading it, is the former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who undaunted by the fearful odds against him and desertion of several top allies, is carrying on a heroic struggle for restoration of democracy and early elections in Pakistan almost single handedly.

But several more hitherto relatively unknown heroes have appeared on the scene. Prominent among them is the lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan who has fearlessly been speaking against these atrocities and excesses

Prominent also are journalists like Moeed Pirzada, who from Waashinton is regularly appearing on his youtube channel to reveal the atrocities taking place in Pakistan, in retaliation to which an FIR has been filed against him in a Pakistani police station with the cock and bull story that he.instigated the violence in Lahore on 9th May. He has also received death threats.

Also to be mentioned are Sami Ibrahim, who had been arrested, Adil Raja, against whom at the instance of the Pakistan authorities the London police interrogated him for 8 hours, the eminent Pakistani journalist Imran Riaz Khan, who has been ‘disappeared’, and anchor person Sabir Shakir

PTI leaders who have stood by Imran Khan in these trying times, like Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Yasmin Rashid, Shibli Faraz and Murad Saeed also deserve to be hailed.

Those in the latter category are cowardly renegades like former Ministers Shireen Mazari, Fawad Choudhry, etc and especially the downright opportunist and mahalota tycoon Jahangir Tareen ( who only cares for his business interests ) and Firdous Ashiq Awan.

Eternal shame and ignominy to these Mir Jafars and Benedict Arnolds. Thank goodness the true colours of these chameleons have been revealed. The people of Pakistan will spit on them wherever they go.
