Imran Khan called PSL’s foreign cricketers ‘phateechar’ and Twitter is not having it

Pakistan’s homegrown cricket tournament PSL 2017 ended with a bang on Sunday and everyone is happy. Well… almost everyone.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan believes that the PSL final happening in Lahore wasn’t as big a deal as people are making it sound.

Why? Because the foreign players who participated… were basically a bunch of nobodies, in his opinion.

Commenting on how the major names in cricket didn’t show up, Imran Khan ends up bashing the players who did come, saying he’s never heard of them and calling them phateechar (shabby or worn out).

It was unbecoming of the former cricketer to say that and Twitter is bent on telling him so.

He hurt his own fans.

Talk about broken hearts!

Many jumped to the defence of the foreign players.

And then Twitter decided to take over the #Phateechar hashtag and make it their own.

Lahore has bigger problems than PSL.

We feel ya, buddy.

Forever Alone?

An accurate use of the word.

In the end, we have to know…

Lawyers, police scuffle after FIR registered against two attorneys

A group of lawyers scuffled with police on Tuesday after two attorneys were booked for allegedly helping two robbery suspects flee from Karachi’s city court, police told DawnNews.

The fight was related to an incident that happened on Monday, when Gulistan-e-Jauhar police had produced two suspects before a magistrate at the city courts to request their remand.

After the remand was granted, police said the suspects’ lawyers and relatives had helped the accused escape from the court premises.

City Courts police later lodged a case against the two lawyers and others on the complaint of an official from the Gulistan-e-Jauhar police station.

However, around 50 lawyers approached the City Courts Police Station on Tuesday afternoon to lodge a ‘counter’ First Investigation Report (FIR) against the officials of the Gulistan-e-Jauhar Police Station.

The fight broke out when police refused to register the case citing insufficient grounds, a police official said.

Terrorism will not be defeated by closure of Pak-Afghan border: Shireen Mazari

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf’s (PTI) chief whip Shireen Mazari on Tuesday criticised the government’s decision to seal the Pak-Afghan border, saying it was not solution in the country’s fight against terrorism.

“Terrorism will not be finished by closing the Pakistan-Afghanistan border,” Mazari said during a session of the National Assembly.

Pakistan’s border crossings with Afghanistan had been sealed in the aftermath of a suicide bombing at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sindh ─ the deadliest in a series of recent attacks in the country.

The military leadership had claimed the attacks were carried out by militants operating from safe-havens in Afghanistan.

Mazari asked why Defence Minister Khawaja Asif had alleged a day earlier that India is conducting terrorist activities in Pakistan when Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had said during a recent visit to Turkey that Pakistan wants to do business with India.

“If terrorism can be defeated by closing the Pak-Afghan border, then why not close the Wagah border as well?” Mazari asked. “What is our foreign policy and who develops it?” she added.

Pointing to the Army’s recently-launched Operation Raddul Fasaad, Mazari also questioned why the policies that had created “fasaad” (discord) in the country had not been done away with.
