IRSHAD SALIM – Charlie and Snoopy discuss Imran Khan’s ouster ‘melancholy’ among his supporters, loyalists, and the overwhelming number of Pakistani youth (I call them the sunshine generation) who look up to him rain or sunshine. They’re in a shock and awe cross-country and the significant number from overseas Pakistanis who also follow his battle-cry for ‘rule of law’ feel let down:
A two-day road trip from Islamabad to Karachi with an overnight stay in Hyderabad, plus a week in the port city, sort of helped me understand the mood of Khan supporters and sympathizers. They’re a grim reaper community by most measures of social and political science.
I’m a back to school student of these sciences since January 2020!
