Opinion/Editorial:

  • PPP: once the challenger, now an appeaser:
    On November 30th, 1967, the founding convention of a new political party was organised by left wing political activists in Lahore. Most were students having greater ideals and an audacious mindset to go beyond defunct reformist ideas in the progressive movement and overthrow this system of tyranny and oppression. Under Ayub Khan’s military dictatorship, albeit in a civilian garb, the state’s repression was remorseless and brutal. Punjab Governor Amir Mohammad Khan, the Nawab of Kalabagh, was a ruthless despot. Stringent obstacles and repressive measures were imposed to sabotage this meeting despite the official media’s pretence of this being a paltry affair. Several prospective delegates were barred to attend this ‘founding convention’ while some refrained to defy the odds. On that fateful autumn morning of a much less polluted Lahore, the convention began with a tinge of optimism in the air. (https://dailytimes.com.pk/151815/ppp-challenger-now-appeaser/)
