Very nice article.... Modi is likely to ban your columns!!!!!
Dawn always finds a balance in reporting. The cartoons lampoon the Indian as well as Pakistani politicians
Hilarious! especially the Om Puri part! You old buffalo, can't stop laughing! Hats off to you, NFP!
@Ramesh Nakhwa And Chinese too!
One of the best in world.
excellent very funny,hang out here.
hahahaha... awesome ..this is so funny...
but you used one pic from modi's Japanese visit , where he is drinking tea with Japanese prime minister abe and titled it under modi in china.
hhahhaha...!! lol very funny...!!
Hilarious !! As always NFP.
One of the Finest ................... from Dawn!
WOW .......In my opinion Pakistan must learn .And build strong
relationship with near by countries, such as Afghanistan, Iran,
India, China and so on. It's very important.

It would be more appropriate to call leaders of India and Pakistan as clowns than any thing else. Well done Mr. Paracha.
A very good portrayal of the politicians.
The 4th one cracks me up
Hahahahaha. Great One Sir.
Well after taking a look at few photos I realized this could only be nadeem
Hilarious! Prawn Soup, the best one!
most liked...Paro..and the look on modi face
that was funny :D
Excellent ! We all deserve something like this once in a while.
funny..keep it up. Nice time pass.
Simply epic. Good job NFP :)
NFP unusual humouring slant to real politics. Refreshing change from regular bickering between two countries.
You mixed Modi in China and Modi in Japan. Maybe you had some underlying reason but I could not understand it.
what is meant by old buffalo ????
@nation lover - You won't like it.
NFP for Pakistani Politician you used soft words but for Indian politician especially for Modi you used some arrogant language like Old buffaloes,Om Puri etc. The good comedian always make fun of himself first but the arrogant always make fun of others.
@OM dude relax, you don't know NFP if you think he has soft words for Pakistani politicians. Learn to take a joke
Very funny... Hehehe... But Obama visit comedy was even better....
message well delivered spread humour not fire
Hilarious...! Specially President Manoon.
Next Level :D
Hilarious, great as always!
@OM Oh a whining Indian spotted again!
@OM - Don't be so touchy...chill !!!
NFP! what a creativity, nice move there, very funny can't stop laughing...
This is funny. Jackie Chan meets Om Puri.
@Shumaila Khan Nationalistic.
@Shumaila Khan "@OM Oh a whining Indian spotted again!"
Heyy, come on, both our nations do not lack for whiners. Om probably did not like his name being used so much.. The prawn soup "Gaaaak" was awesome - hard core veggies would actually try to remove the prawn stuck in the throat, exactly like that!
I love it. Modi as Om Puri....hee,hee,hee...
hahahah amazing old buffalo
hands down masterpiece
That sketch of "Paro" (from Dev Das) is regretable. To more than a billion people this name stirs up such sadness , it overwhelms the comedy intended.
This is a riot! Couldn't help laughing away
The guy from The Matrix. Hahaha
Why You addressing Indian Prime Minister with name of animals !! Are you really getting some pleasure out of that !! This is not a balanced article !! We Indian feel abused !!
Hilarious :) Keep up Nadeem F. Paracha
as usual ur grudge against Modi is seen :) nice...but he wont stop doing what is right for India, my country
Well he does kinda look like Jackie Chan, ;)
I think as an Indian I am not too offended by the cartoons because of the balanced reporting. This kind of balance will probably create a better atmosphere for more dialogue between citizens of both countries.
Very Nice...Keep it up
@Ali Shah Nonsense. Calling Indian PM Modi an old buffalo who is respected here isnt comedy.Thats not comedy. Comedy shouldnt let yourself to personally attack. Again I dont have to remember you that such an attitude which I have seen many times comes from your supposedly superiority...
Hilariously NFP!! On a serious note why is Modi taking selfies and behaving like a wannabe Bollwood Damsel. Unbecoming of a Prime Minister.
Paracha ji, you are a genius…."I really am that guy from the Matrix"…lol x 10000.
@Afzal Mir why?
@Third Party - NFP is allowed to lampoon anyone. He is a one man "Aman ki Asha". Well done, NFP.
5th one is the best.
Modi is wearing frock of some lady in lok sabha
I have never enjoyed NFP memes that much before. Literally hilarious.
@Eagle I am a Modi fan. But cant stop laughing! Whole thing is too good!
Dawn is great paper! Wish we had equivalents in India.
@Ashraf Mirza (USA) Great. It would be very nice.
Also if entire south asia Pak, Nepal, India, and others had infrastructure, good sanitation etc like Europe. While we all stay separate, it may still be possible to be clean. Swachch Asia :)
Great , keep it on
NFP and PH are gem of columnists......
