Farhan Adeel, director of ‘Aalu Anday’, came up with the idea of a youtube channel. The idea was to have a platform where everybody can be a journalist, everybody can have a say without being formal and the only credentials required for speaking up is having an opinion. This webisode is an antidote to the monotony, monopoly and selected approach of the main stream electronic media. Here, news becomes humor and wisdom becomes wit.

May I ask what is your contribution to the progress and welfare of Pakistan and Pakistanis? This is not a jab at you but an effort to point out that Pakistanis have this negative attitude of blaming everything and everybody and not pointing to the positive things that can be done by the individuals.

The positive in the discussion is that Pakistanis are now opening themselves (and their society) to (self-)criticism. Pakistanis need more such ways of giving vent to their views and frustrations. Keep it up.

Something spanking new to watch youth became more sensible & aware of all current issues of Pakistan. They actually consider themselves responsible for everything. However, everybody knows government definitely doesn't care about Pakistan or people of Pakistan.

Very nice idea guys. I despise people with fancy words and grammar who rhetorically tell the same story whereas undiscovered talented souls rust away in oblivion. Its about time people's opinion started to matter.

After watching (read wasting 10 mins of my time) this rubbish, I have no doubts left that my country is doomed!. A bunch of losers think ranting and showing of their limited IQs by discussing Pakistani politics and history is called free speech!! A channel with a difference!!

What kind of service has religious fanatics and mullas have given to Pakistan ,they never protest for equality in education,treatment of women,child labour,cleanliness,health,sports and rights for minorities.On the contrary they r only after America,jews,and Indians.Pakistan has the lowest rate of literacy and the population is increasing , no family planning because God will take ca, pakistanis r responsible for their downfall and so should stop blaming govt for their malaise.Islam and Hadith also says 'eat in moderation', have u ever seen a mullah without a pot belly?Eat hard, pray hard and blah! blah! hard, that is all one can see from these medieval croaks.
