    What's your view of Sheikh Rasheed?

    He has to be one of the most recognized faces of Pakistani politics. His legacy is mixed, at best.

    Sheeda Tilli of Raja Bazaar: tarnishing my city's name for nigh on thirty years now. "Dekhain Jee."

    He and Mushahid Hussain Syed are to me two of the biggest disappointments in politics: one a worker's son who did his time with the students' unions and then sold out, and the other an upper middle classia with intellectual pretensions who also sold out.

    What's your view of Sheikh Rashid?

    Our people are suckers for the folky touch. In Raja Bazaar, the Kashmiri shopkeepers are genuinely fond of him. I used to accompany my mother to Raja Bazaar whenever there were arrangements to be done for family weddings etc, and while she was in the stores I would roam around, sampling the street food.

    I would ask them about Sheeda and to a man, they were full of praise. One reason was his penchant for dropping by at a different house every morning, and asking for breakfast. Of course during the breakfast they would tell him of their travails, perhaps even hand him a petition. Whether he did anything for them didn't matter. At least he cared enough to eat their breakfast and share crude jokes and aphorisms.

    He's an ambitious guy who had hopes of high office. But they saddled him with Railways etc. which is just as well. Can you imagine him as Foreign Minister? The closest he came to that was when he convinced them to let him speak at the UN General Assembly session during the Zia era. Picture that. Sheeda addressing the UN.

    Incidentally, while my father was lecturer at Gordon College, Sheeda was a student leader. My father said he was genuinely patriotic, but as usually happens, the higher-ups used him for their dirty work, which may have contributed to making him the cynical opportunist he became. He kept the folky touch of the laborer's son of course.

    What's your view of Sheikh Rashid?

    Sheikh Rasheed generally comes across the fun-guy of Pak politics. Delivers some hilarious one liners along with generally humorous reading of the political situation in the country in order to remain relevant. But if there ever was a man who was 'all talk and no action' then it has to be him. He defines the phrase.

    He is good to listen to but his history is enough to be sure that its all just a drama. Biggest lota ever. Dont like Imran Khan's alliance with him one bit. Never understood what Imran Khan is gaining from him considering his previous statements against Sheikh Rasheed.

    An opportunistic charlatan and fraud who would change allegiances at the drop of the hat.

    That being said, his longevity and cunning have to be admired.

    He seems to have a knack of figuring out what the most popular thing to say would be, and says it.

    Straight to the point guy. Makes me lol most times.

    I guess the motive behind IK's alliance is "Enemy of my Enemy is Friend". Besides he is being used as mouth peace for PTI so not a bad move I think. Since SR likes to be in lime light it's win win for both sides. I don't think IK will reward him with some ministry if PTI comes into power. At best he will be used as some sort of 'adviser'.

    not really. Leaves a bad taste in the mouth for a lot of supporters to have a turncoat in the midst. Good he didnt join officially atleast.

    But his utility beyond giving PMLN a tough time on tv shows is negligible

    In politics more than 35 years.

    Has been appointed Minister for 7 times. Was with PMLN for long time. Then won MNA independently and joined PMLQ under Pervez Musharraf.

    Claims that their is not a single corruption case against him. Also claims that he has stopped lying since 6 to 7 years before that he was like any other politician.

    So chuchay khaa k Billi Hajj ko Challi.

    I remember years ago he was asked about corruption in general in the country and his own corruption during his minister-ship.

    With other statements to condemn corruption, he defended himself by saying ... "nahi ji menay tou bass kar diya hai, 2 ghee ki factoriyan lagwaa li hain, meray liye kaafi hai".

    I would have appreciated him, if he had given back to the country ALL of what he stole when he was in power before he would act all saint, and "khadim of awaam".

    As soon as I post about NS the Nooras run, but I haven't seen any allegations about SR and corruption. The only allegation is that he likes to get in with people in power but didn't the so called democrats in PML do the same with general Zia.

    Sheikh Rasheed.

    What do others here think of Imran Khan's puppet Sheikh Rasheed who seems to be on every Pakistani channel boring people to death saying the same thing, repeatedly??. Until a few months before the so called dharna I was a supporter of his. Now just like IK I find him to be annoying and full of himself.

    This is one pious billi. The scholarly consensus throughout history has been nau sao choohay. A mere sau choohay doesn't even warrant an Umra, much less a Hajj.

    For sau choohay, a trip to Data Darbar should suffice.

    The National Press Club (NPC) in Islamabad on Tuesday placed a temporary ban on the entry and coverage of Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid in its premises after he allegedly used "insulting" language for a journalist who is undergoing treatment for cancer.

    The decision was taken after NPC President Shakeel Qarar met Geo TV video journalist Nasir, who is receiving treatment for cancer at Benazir Bhutto Hospital in Rawalpindi, a press release issued by the press club said.

    It said Nasir had informed Qarar that during a recent visit to the hospital by Rashid, a local journalist had directed the minister's attention towards Nasir's illness. At this, the railways minister "uttered insulting sentences which deeply hurt Nasir's sentiments", the press release added.

    It was thus decided to place a ban on Rashid's coverage in Rawalpindi and Islamabad and on his entry in NPC Islamabad and the Rawalpindi Camp Office for a week, according to the statement.

    While the NPC did not reveal Rashid's exact words, it condemned what it termed the minister's use of "insulting remarks for a video journalist fighting the battle for survival".

    The press club appealed to reporters, video and photojournalists to follow the prohibition and also requested press clubs across the country to ban Rashid's entry for seven days.
