    Lol special thanks to Jibran that Shehla Raza deleted her tweet, Fawad made a bold press conference and Ahsan Iqbal tweeted in favor of the decision and we see unity among our countrymen irrespective of their beliefs and political affiliations on something Pakistanis in general are afraid to talk about.

    Special thanks to Jibran for highlighting it like we highlight Nargis (Bronze medalist) was from Hazara community and when a transgender becomes a news anchor.

    Special thanks to Jibran for making it loud and clear that we appreciate good steps irrespective of who is behind it and wont bow down to extremists, if you are in 100s we will unite and will be in 1000s.

    Congratulations to @Major and @Mamoon, their parties successfully applied pressure on PTI to get them to replace Atif Mian. You guys must be overjoyed with the folks you support.

    hmm, how weak imran is easily bend overs when pressure is applied on him.

    The decision was in the hand of PTI. PPP acted like buffoons, and so did other parties. But it was still in the hands of PTI simple as that.

    If any party discriminate minorities i'm against them. Be it PPP or PTI.

    I agree, PPP and PMLN should had stood with PTI on this. Bilalwal was no where to be scene on this issue.
    Its funny how PMLN acted when just few months ago we saw that ahsan iqbal fiasco.

    Ahsan Iqbal did admire Imran's intial decision to add atif mian.

    But the end result was pathetic. PPP and PMLN just exposed themselves, but PTI shouldn't had bottled to them.

    If you think about it, all parties are guilty for this. Atleast PTI did had the guts to appoint him, but they should be criticized for bowing down.

    Political points are being scored on the faiths of not only the ahmadis but also the rest of the Pakistanis.

    We Pakistani's were gonna benefit from this, but our politics mess us up

    So PTI gets brownie points for displaying the cake and taking it away. PTI is as bad as other parties gutless and spineless and catering to the fundamentalists as always. No naya Pakistan

    probably the most minor issue pertaining to Pakistan.

    Economy, and Water is the biggest issue.

    Issues like this will be solved once economy and water crisis are taken care of and the only way to do is by educating the masses by making education system better for all.

    Bro, keeping the bias aside, if all the parties stood together with this decision, the mullahs could had be defeated.

    Problem is while pti does have the govt, no one is strong enough to stand against the mullah brigade.

    Remember during PMLN's govt we saw how ahsan iqbal was targetted. Khadim rizvi and his dogs took the whole city hostage. I remember how a commute of 45 minutes became 4 hrs.
    Pmln stood their ground but yet the dogs did not leave.

    This is why it was pathetic from pmln that they oppose this initiative from pti.

    Just to score politics point and destabilize the democratic govt, these guys ended up destroying the future of Pakistan.

    From Atif Mian only pakistan could had benefited. The guy is amongest the top 20 economists. Other country's will be approaching for his expertise now.

    We treated abdus salam like this. I always wondered how could they have done such a thing and now i understand.

    PTI was in catch 22.

    If they backed out, this is what would had happened, backlash from people.

    If they did not back out, rizvi and his dogs would had again taken the city hostage.

    Ahsan iqbal did nothing wrong. What he did was right and not even illegal and yet khadim got him to revert that law.

    This? This was nothing. Again no rules were violated by adding atif in the council but there would had been unrest.

    The only good thing from this is that this time khadim rIzvi and his supporters wont able to say that it was because of them this was reverted. If that had happened, it would had been 0-3 khadim rizvi.

    That would had been khadim getting more support as he had thrice been able to influence a decision in the honor of islam.

    You may argue that the blasphemy case wasnt solved because of him, but thats something you and i know. For the local population, they think khadim got it to changed.

    Khadim rivi winning support is more dangerous for everyone. Just his one dharna made him come third in many constituencies in lahore.

    However, as Imran is the pm, him, his part and his supporters will have to accept the blame that he will recieve.

    I was once watching a video on youtube where musharaffe was invited as a guest at some north american institution and some pakistani ahmadis asked them this ahmadi situation in pakista. Musharaffe said that while he has ahmadi friends there is nothing that could be done to improve their situation and that is something he also had to accept and he apologised for that.

    The only thing we could hope for is Imrans govt does take help from atif, keep him as an adviser, but they dont announce this publicly.

    I am pretty sure every member of PPP refused to sign.

    It was all of the other opposition parties led by PMLN.

    Absolutely, and the best way to start working towards improving our economic condition is to decline the services of one of the top economists in the world because of his religion.

    No deflection allowed. I repeat for the umpteenth time - the decision was in the hands of PTI and they showed no spine.

    The role of the opposition is irrelevant and unworthy of discussion. I understand the desperation of Junoonis to deflect the blame, but it is not working.

    Yes. The bigot, the u-turn specialist, the taliban supporter.

    A bigot cos he doesn't wanna cause a civil war & disavow the feelings of the people he's most trying to help get out of jahaliyat.

    U-turn specialist cos he dreams massive, and every so often has to make a tactical retreat, cos the country isn't ready for big dreams, and the media isn't of stoking the fires to fit their narrative.

    And of course a taliban fan, cos he thinks the Pashtun are no closer to being subdued than they were 3000 years ago& will still fight those who try to oppress them, so he would prefer ppl talking to them. Not to mention not wanting the common ppl in the tribal areas to suffer, yet it's fans of drone bombing like Mohsin Dawar who the media champion as pro those same ppl he's happy to see bomb.

    Or he realised he's not gonna get anything done by playing 'woke politician' & sidelining the feelings and bigotry of the average jaahil Pakistani who doesn't know any better.

    Pakistan can survive without Atif Mian, it can't survive a civil war.

    Perhaps in the short-run, but in the long-run, Pakistan cannot survive by bowing to religious extremism either, and it is one of the biggest factors why we have achieved little progress as a nation.

    Playing khatam-e-nabuwat politics to capitalize on extremist mindset and rejecting merit for bigotry is not a step in the right direction, regardless of the excuses and justifications that people are coming up.

    The tragedy is that the people who are defending this decision (to remove Atif Mian) were the ones doing bhangra when he was appointed in the first place?

    Were PTI wrong when they appointed him or are they wrong in removing him?

    Or are PTI always right? I know what the average junooni thinks, but still, it is fascinating to take a peek into their warped mindsets.

    If PTI would have shown resilience and stood by their meritorious decision of appointing Atif Mian, PTI supporters would be brushing themselves over what a brave party PTI is and how true it is to its manifesto.

    Now that PTI exposed their jelly spine, the same PTI supporters are brushing themselves over how PTI managed to take the bigger picture into consideration and avoided a civil war.

    This is what happens when a political party evolves into a cult, and supporters evolve into cult members.

    There is no deflection, just showing you a mirror about your choice for govt for the last 5 years. You spent years defending these corrupt thugs and as we know you will do so in the future and when asked a direct question, you show your cowardly ways and not comment on your parties policy. Nearly All the PTI supporters were saddened by this well meaning appointment and its subsequent retraction but you Nooras are still running. As i said i will point out your hypocrisy on every post and you can tun but not hide.

    Also what a stupid thing to say that the role of the opposition is irrelevant and unworthy when it was the reason for the retraction of the policy. I say IK in the end did the right thing because the alternative was violence which benefits no one.

    Have you seen anyone defending the actual decision? I've yet to see any of the usual PTI supporters in this forum defend the actual decision, we're all massively disappointed, and in shock cos we expected better from Imran Khan, from what we know of him .

    But we're also realists, and we're theorising why he made the decision he made, we still have faith in him, we're not throwing the baby out with the bath water.
