Imran Khan fans have new threat: Bring him back as PM or face anti-Bajwa hashtags

The hate has been in the air since April when Imran Khan was ousted. Now, #BajwaHasToGo, and #BajwaTraitor are meant to make the army 'mend its ways'.

Bajwa set to go in November, so who will be next Pakistan Army chief? These are 4 contenders

Head of Pakistan military's PR wing has ruled out Gen. Bajwa seeking extension & speculation is rife about possible successor. Top 4 contenders all Lt Generals promoted in 2019.

Pakistan drama not over. It’s on between ‘short-term’ Shehbaz, ‘honest’ Imran, ‘mature’ Bajwa

As Imran Khan reverts to his role of street protests, there is no doubt that his strategy is masterly –a ‘clean leader’ fighting off a ‘foreign conspiracy’. You can’t arrest him.

For the first time in Pakistan’s history, I’m not the puppeteer of the puppet I built in 2018

I am now internationally significant but nationally insignificant. But don't worry Pakistanis, your General will take care of you.

Stung by ‘issues’ with China-made tech, Pakistan military is back to wooing US for defence

Rawalpindi wants to restore defence cooperation & get Pakistan off Financial Action Task Force’s Grey List. Western countries have been denying equipment, cancelling deals.

Day before Imran’s no-trust vote, Pakistan army chief condemns Ukraine war, cosies up to West

Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said Russian invasion of Ukraine ‘must be stopped immediately’, discussed ‘excellent’ relationship with US, in contrast with PM Imran Khan’s anti-West stances.

EU snubbed Pakistan Army chief’s request to join landmark meeting with Indo-Pacific in Paris

Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa’s request for a one-on-one meeting with Josep Borrell Fontelles, the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, was also turned down.

I hugged India, ignored US in security policy, but that’s theatrics: Pakistani Gen Twitter

My friends, your General Twitter is telling you for the 5000th time. There is no deal with Nawaz Sharif. I like Imran Khan and only hold talks with Pakistani Taliban.

Gen Bajwa can bet on Pakistan’s divided politics. Imran Khan’s defiance will lead to nothing

It's unfortunate that no one in Pakistan government and opposition will capture this opportunity and join hands to push back the army chief for good.

‘Congress must die’, I said in 2019. What I meant then, and what’s changed now

At this juncture in history, you don't hold on to grudges. Following Paul Samuelson, I ask everyone: 'When the situation changes, I change my assessment. What about you, sir?'

AAP’s filling a big vacuum in Indian politics. Question is how long it can sustain without ideology

If you find admiration for AAP qualified, if not muted among many of the Modi-BJP’s critics, it is because they question it for its lack of ideological clarity. Especially on secularism.
