From the Editors..

It is imperative that we feel the plight of thousands upon thousands of innocent fellow Pakistanis languishing in overflowing jails right now for no apparent reason other than exercising their basic human rights. Many of them are being tortured into painful submission. We must express solidarity with them and do our utmost to raise our voice against the atrocities being committed by the paragons of oppression. This nation has produced more heroes in the past one week than it has done in decades. We stand by them in these dark times.

In Complete Unity.

We at PakistanPolitics.net are very excited to see your initiative and will be adding you to our blogroll soon.

Please visit our website often.

About

PakistanPolitics.net is an independent pro-democracy website and blog, offering stimulating, critical analysis, promoting dialogue and debate on issues of importance to Pakistani politics and linking ex-pats, ex-Pakistanis and residents of Pakistan. It is also the Pakistani blogosphere’s first law blog. It takes a progressive approach to politics in Pakistan.

PakistanPolitics.net is committed to human rights, economic justice, political stability, religious freedom and the rule of law.

We aim to ensure that marginalized and dissenting views and voices are heard. We hope to challenge the established voices and encourage debate about our views. We will monitor internet, satellite television, and local print media (in Urdu and English) to provide comprehensive analysis. Further, we will speak with political activists, lawyers, judges, academics and journalists.

As Pakistan rushes towards a new experiment with democracy, we seek to aggressively monitor the country’s political leadership, the military, and its religious establishment.

The primary contributors and researchers for this site are all Pakistani-American or Pakistani lawyers and barristers.

We should devote a section to strategy and action.

Who are the detainees? The Pakistan Emergency page on Wiki has been compiling a list. Help out.

Visit the families of the detainees. Bring them gifts. There is lots of work to be done.
