Smokers’ Corner: In through the outrage


Your Name:

Recipient Email:

Everyone knows how all kinds of Free Masons have been the most prominent reasons behind the many political, economic and social problems that are plaguing Pakistan. I just don’t understand why is there even a debate about this fact?

I humbly suggest that anyone attempting to debate this irrefutable fact should be taken to task at once. Because no real Pakistani can doubt it. It is obvious that anyone doing so is a foreign agent, a heretic, or worse, a Misbahul Haq fan. Misbah doesn’t say ‘fusst of all thanks to God, boys plays well … ’ at the post-match award ceremonies. Liberal fascist!

As we already know that only Muslims are human beings. This is an indisputable fact as well. So, when good Muslims meet non-Muslims, it is their duty to convert the non-Muslims. This way they are actually helping non-Muslims to become human beings from the cannibalistic Neanderthals that they really are. If they convert, well and good; if not, then they should be taken to task at once. Or better still, set on fire.

The facts and figures of what I have just reiterated are there for all to see. According to a survey conducted by the Peruvian Sofa Makers Union, most Pakistanis believe that Altaf Hussain is a Misbah fan. And that 97 per cent of the world’s population would like to see Imran Khan become the king of the whole wide world.

Anyone wondering why a Peruvian sofa makers’ union would be holding a political survey on Pakistan is, of course, a cannibal. He too should be set on fire; or better still, forced to go on a strict Hindu vegetarian diet. Yuck!

There is nothing so secretive or hidden anymore about the fact that Pakistan is being destabilised by forces that have always been its sworn enemies.

Our enemies, the Christians, the Hindus and Angelina Jolie, have gotten the American Congress to sanction $700 billion for hiring secret agents, suicide bombers and for installing CD shops that sell vulgar films in our markets and to our cinemas.

It is these CD shops and cinemas that will eventually compromise our nuclear assets. They should all be burned down on Fridays. For the sake and name of love.

Anyone ridiculing this is obviously a non-Muslim and should be converted. The conversion should preferably be performed by one of the greatest scholars that the Muslim world has ever produced in the last one hundred years: Maya Khan.

If the non-Muslim still refuses to be converted, he should then be made to listen to Aamir Liaquat talk about the birds and the bees. The non-Muslim is then bound to shoot himself.

I implore the government to speak the truth. Why isn’t it telling us who all these suicide bombers really are? I’ll tell you. They are not Muslims. They are uncircumcised men hired by Om Puri from assorted pagan Central African tribes, especially the cannibalistic Zulu clan. I know this because I heard it from the horse’s mouth. And a fine horse it was, winner of various international Derby races. To quote him, verbatim, it said: “Eeeheeeheeeheeeheee!”

Some people might mislead you by suggesting that the horse was most probably just asking for some grass to eat, but that’s not true.

The truth is it wasn’t a horse at all. It was a unicorn and unicorns always hee-haw about profound things. Those claiming that unicorns do not exist are, of course, agents of the one-eyed dajaal having secret meetings in room number 34 of a posh hotel in Islamabad with American Free Masons. Sangsar Abbasi saw this with his own two outer eyes and an inner one.

Such Free Masons should be bombed because it’s okay to bomb non-humans. However, the humans (Muslims), who might also die in such an attack, need not worry. Along with the bomber they too will go to heaven. This is called collateral martyrdom.

A few days ago, I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with one of Pakistan’s leading political analysts, Maria B. She told me that the real reason behind the economic collapse that the country is facing is ball-tampering.

You see, the West makes cricket balls of dog leather and expects our cricketers to play with them. This is an insult. How can a team full of renowned and devout intellectuals such as Shahid Khan Afridi, ever play with such balls?

So, when they try to bite off the leather, they are accused by the Western media of ball-tampering.

This then upsets the sentiments of charismatic Chechen tribal leaders such as Hamid Bull who start trading gola barood (milk & honey), instead of treading cotton and wheat and this eventually hurts the country’s economy. It’s as simple as that.

Now something about the Balochistan situation. Just as the government is constantly lying about the situation in the North, it is lying about the crisis in Balochistan as well. Everybody knows that Balochistan has already become an independent republic run by Gog and Magog.

I just don’t understand why nobody has noticed such an obvious thing. The Gog & Magog, armed with CD shops, are being funded by renowned Hindu fundamentalist, Mahesh Bhatt, who has also infiltrated sensitive Pakistani institutions like the Karachi Literature Festival (KLF).

According to famous nuclear scientist, Sahir Lodhi, this can compromise our nuclear programme because the government has allowed the KLF people to hold next year’s festival at the Kahuta Nuclear Plant. They even plan to rename the event as the Kahuta Fission Festival. This is an outrage.

We, as a nation of 18.2 zillion Muslims and a few Hindu, Zoroastrian, Liberal and Christian traitors, should get behind real patriots. We should support famous astronauts like Hafiz Saeed (the first man to walk on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Eid moon), and brave bounty hunters like Ghulam Ahmad Bilour. We should support their revolutionary efforts to turn Pakistan into a proud pious state headed by great philosophers like Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed.

Until and unless we face these facts and are  prepared to bomb all CD shops, burn down the cinemas and loot ATMs, Pakistan will remain to be a corrupt country full of bars, nightclubs, bikini-wearing women, and gay pride parades!

We should help put a stop to such activities that are so rampant in Pakistan. What do you mean you can’t see any nightclubs, gay parades or bikini-clad women in Pakistan? Use your inner eye, fool.

Hahaha. What amazingly varied and resourceful thoughts. One thing though. Don't include all Muslims in our holy gestures. Some are still doing better than us 'Pakistani Muslims'.

May be Mr Paracha, if I may humbly suggest, columns like yours should be translated and published in popular Urdu papers and magazines so that the public will have the benefit of the views of well-meaning intellectuals in the country. I am really sick of reading reports of various acts of intolerance in Pakistan without any organization having the courage to do something practical to put an end to it.

You sir have an amazing way of presenting reality while making people laugh. But unfortunately, however which way you tell a criminal of his crimes, he will never accept it.

Writings of NFP are always admirable Analysis,true to the chore.Mr.sridhar is trying to be clever,accusing liberal muslims of being cowards by not standing up to oppose the extremists.I ask mr. Sridhar how many liberal hindus have guts to stand up to Balaji Thakray and his cohorts.
Sameer Sep 30, 2012 05:20am
hahahahahah amazing piece. awesome sarcarsm. the problem is that its only true so maybe it is not "sarcasm" but the truth.

But thats exactly NFP's point. Dont you get it. Put that in the context of the entire article.
jatin Sep 30, 2012 05:37pm
NFP, I can see more the frustration of day to day events than the satire, and rightly so. I just read an article on faith by Munir Akram. No wonder you would have vented your feelings after reading that article by writing this:).

Woohooo! Another == spouting SDRE Indian. I love these guys - their self esteem speaks words profound.
SAK Sep 30, 2012 11:48am
One thing is for sure. Every writer worth his salt has to rub in IK in their articles and then complain about PTI trolls. In 65 years history of Pakistan, NS and AAZ have ruled and not IK but he gets to be held responsible for all evils. You know what IK sells and that is what all writers are doing even Nadeem Paracha!!

@Emaad and Deen Yes, that SOAS session was pretty good. Apart from the fact that he spoke well on many issues and had great wit, he was also so down to earth and with zero pretentions. I think he also spoke at Columbia University in New York last month, but am not sure.

greatiamtoo Sep 30, 2012 04:46am
Yes the Hindu patriots should follow the 18.2 zillion Muslim patriots and in no case try to cross to Jodhpur since the inner eye of these 'frothing over their beards' patriots sees binocularly through the back of their heads. The Christians should sweep the roads after the patriots leave garbage littered on the roads during their million people march and in no case touch holy papers on the ground. The infidel american should stop the drones from dropping bombs. Instead they should be dropping CDs of third grade religious pin-less grenades on the ground. The earth will be burn with patriotic mullahs jumping like pop-corn. Water please! Oh drowning we are in all the rain but the Indian infidels are drinking all the drinkable water.

Sridhar Sep 30, 2012 05:09pm
Kudos to NFP! We need more of us think like him. All of my Muslim friends in the US and India have been well-educated, tolerant, moderate people. Each one, when in private, one-on-one conversations, readily relate to the ideas so nicely hidden in NFP's piece(s). What needs to be done is for them to stand up collectively and amplify their moderate and modern views in public forums, including in their mosques, on radio shows, TV shows and printed media. These good-hearted individuals have an enormous, albeit a dangerous task. However, when we keep hearing "Islam is religion of peace" without actively, unequivocally distancing themselves from mis guided Muslim zealots, no one takes them seriously. Christians speak out and move legislation that put an end to slavery, ill treatment of women. Hindu's have outlawed untouchability and through democracy have reserved constituencies for elections and finds minorities in the highest posts. Distancing, de-vowing of the fundamentalists is the need not lame denials.

Another brilliant piece ... with bubbling humor that makes one think even more deeply of the sources of public anguish. The term "collateral martyrdom" should become part of the national lexicon. Thank you, NFP.

Brilliant article sir..Hats off .. I think you should give a serious thought to write a contemporary history of pakistan , as recommended by Madam Ayesha Siddiqua and Sir Abbas Nasir .
Rohail Nadeem Sep 30, 2012 09:07am
How does he do it? From writing detailed and insightful pieces on the political and cultural history of Pakistan to then almost seamlessly moving to doing sharp, intelligent and purposefully bizarre satire. NFP, you are one of a kind. Keep on rocking. You made my Sunday again.

Perfect Satire !! Awesome .....
observer Sep 30, 2012 05:30am
After so many weeks, I am not amused by a column from NFP. The theme is to point out tragic attitudes of our society in a humor way. Yet, NFP becomes too indirect and uses analogies that are too imaginative to make sense. Personally, I have not enjoyed the column at all. I usually wait for something from NFP. It is rare that NFP produces writings of less class. Still he is the best. I hope he never sells out.
Nisha Rai Sep 30, 2012 12:23pm
Very insightful! NFP is so very right. I have so often heard from my muslim friend that suicide bombers are not muslim. It seems incredible, but the argument is that since Islam does not sanction killing innocents, these terrorists can't be muslims! NFP has laid bare many such illogical thoughts in his satire..
Pete Sep 30, 2012 05:43am
Simply Fantastic!!!
Ash Khan Sep 30, 2012 05:45am
Great Job NFP. You make us laugh.

Eru Dhate Sep 30, 2012 03:05pm
Nadeem Paracha is Pakistan's M.J.Akbar on steroids. His satire barely conceals his anguished sarcasm, and an inner-eye reading of his writings reveal a true Pakistani patriot. Excellent stuff. I'd readily buy a book of Paracha's and Akbar's merciless satirical take on the world around them!
Sanjay Saksena Oct 01, 2012 04:20am
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Clearly the work of a highly intelligent mind.
G.Nabi Sep 30, 2012 03:06pm
NFP , have you ever thought that one counters the abhorrent ideas with progressive, adorable ideas. For the last 5 years, country has been ruled by what you might call coalition of seculars namely PPP & MQM. Do you see any sphere of society where counter ideas from ' seculars' have taken roots ? AAZ & his allies have given priority to their vested interests. Declaring Friday,a holiday all over the country and joining the protest against a blasphemous movie on internet shows lethargic attitude of present government.
Cyrus Howell Sep 30, 2012 05:09pm
Mr. Paracha has a promising career in front of him writing TV sitcoms.
Emaad Ahmed Sep 30, 2012 07:12am
I once met NFP at a lecture he gave early this year at SOAS. He came across as a largely quiet and intense kind of a man but with a biting sense of humor and wit. It was a pleasure hearing him speak about all the issues facing Pakistan but he punctuated his talks with witty statements. It was great.
