    I think you got ‘ R ‘ wrong …………….its for ‘ Run because you have no backbone ‘Recommend

  • Tariq khan

    You should have made A for atheists,they face far more discrimination and social prejudice than the Ahmadis do.Recommend

  • Turbo Lover

    Sorry, this is just so good that I am saving this page.Recommend

  • Aijaz Haider

    Pakistani politicians are not so good but they are certainly not ‘imbeciles’.
    The blog was intended to be humorous or hilarious but unfortunately it has crossed the limits.
    This should not be only for little Pakistanis. Most of it applies to non-Pakistanis as well.
    The author is requested to write another ABC’s for little Pakistanis with ‘A’ for ‘Allama Iqbal’, ‘B’ for ‘Benazir’, ‘C’ for ‘Cricket’, … ‘J’ for ‘Jinnah’, ….. ‘M’ for ‘Malala’ and highlight the better side for the little Pakistanis.
    Now Pakistanis have become used to laughing at themselves. They need advice and guidance to improve.

  • Hiba

    I don’t agree with some of the examples especially M ;minorities are safer than the Muslims themselves consider shia sunni conflicts.We all know whats wrong with Pakistan,You should use your creativity to point some thing positive ,to make people believe in our Country.Bickering abput the corruption,chaos and ineqaulitiy doesnt change the fact that we still belong to Pakistan and to make it a better place Frist we have to think its a better placeRecommend

  • Ibn Yusuf

    What a waste of time, you could have used the same letters to describe the Pakistan in a better positive way. Nevertheless that’s what an amateur does. Pointing out flaws is way easier. Recommend

  • Saad Aziz

    why should she show us a better side of pakistan if there is not any,she is showing us the mirror,we should see our dirty faces in it and try to change ourselfRecommend

  • Fahad

    Hilarious Recommend

  • Asad

  • shehliza

    wow that was just brilliant..the most wonderful work ever..m reading it again n again.Wonderful job.Whoever made this is really a genius:-) Recommend

  • Haris Khan

    Applause Recommend

  • Nobody

    I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry….Laughing on the outside, crying a bit on the inside. Pass this on; although it’s something every average Pakistani is fully aware of, seems not enough is being done fast enough to change it. Pisses me off; there is no shortage of talent, bravery or heart in Pakistan. Yet a sack of sh*t government + jahil junglee self labeled jihadists running amok have almost squashed that out of it’s people. Recommend

  • Hameed Langraw

    It was just brilliant rubbish. Wonderful job done be blogger. Whoever made this, show that his/her mind is not working on positive side. I don’t know why we never look or appreciate those things which people are doing against such things….Recommend

  • Imran Haider

    Dear ET,

    You couldn’t read the ‘F’ word? Follow a bit of code at least! Recommend

  • I Hate Dirtystan

    Completely TRUE, all of it.

  • Dear Dear

    To all those saying positive side. Please show us one. There is no positive side except the hallucinations that we see. It is true that Pakistan has been dragged to the bottom of the pit. We ourselves are responsible afterall it is us who vote, us who bribe and us who discriminate. Recommend

  • Baba Ji

    good … innovative ,,,Recommend

  • The Hanging Sword

    Hahaha A for Ahmadis, the Maulanas would have been p****d just to see the word thereRecommend

  • Humaira

    F for Fatwa…I, Allah’s favorite Mullah straight from the Arabian desert, declare a fatwa on this writer of blasphemous cartoons that go against my religion and religiosity.Recommend

  • aalahazrat

    Being one of the two I would say, no they dont. Fortunately for me though. The former can hide in the crowd.Recommend

  • Imad Uddin

    Unbelievable! I just love this! the use of f was indeed essential as nothing else could express how most of religious people are; Q word perfectly depicts how irrelevant the morals of Koran are to the present world; ur C word is the best way to malign unnecessary restrictions placed in the name of modesty;ur M word is the most powerful expression of warning what an Islamic state could mean! But I think ur H phrase should have been “Holier that thou” which is the only accurate interpretation of anyone preaching redundant morals to others. OMG it just matches my mind! Its awsome, sensible and creative!
    wz trying to think lyk a liberal… Recommend

    Some one who is raised in UAE and living in Canada is bashing Pakistan on her ignorance. These problems are in all societies. Pakistan is not the only country where these problem exists. She should write about UAE and CANADA.

    Author should mind her own business in canada and Tribune should be ashmed of itself who is publishing abusive material against my country. We know we have these problems and we discuss this as well but Tribune should not publish the foreigners abusive blogs and author should come to Pakistan and live like Pakistan to understand it.Recommend

  • Xyz

    What rubbish! Can the citizens of Pakistan ever stop ridiculing someone’s belief? Before hating someone try to first understand what Ahmadis really believe. All the maulvis have portrayed a wrong image of them without even knowing what they believe in.Recommend

  • Anas Tanveer

    Appologies for the writer, do not mean to be rude, but it is crap. And as Shehzad Roy says, I am allergic to Bullshits.Recommend

    This post protrays way too much negativity. These are things that only happen in very few parts of pakistan. Now most of the pakistanis are educated people and the above mentioned things only come up n very few cases.Recommend
