Pakistan news and bloggy resources

Just one for now, but I'll be adding to this. Or maybe not. I'm writing something theological, plus a sermon (which may or may not be theological) and trying to stay off-line.

I heard an interview with the blogger from All Things Pakistan on NPR. (Every time I go into the kitchen, I turn on the radio.)

All Things Pakistan, in its own words:

Founding Editor: Adil Najam
Managing Editor: Owais Mughal
Contributing Editors: Darwaish, Adil Najam, Bilal Zuberi

We hope that ATP (All Things Pakistan) will be about discussion, not rants.

Our aspiration is to indulge in a conversation with others - Pakistanis and non-Pakistanis - about Pakistan as a living, breathing, vibrant, vigorous, multi-dimensional, complex society. This is in direct retaliation to the dominant discourse on Pakistan that tends to be about various versions of ‘Pakistan - the cardboard cut-out’.

The most recent post as of this writing is "Pakistan After Benazir: Choosing Our Future." Have a look.

The Byzigenous Buddhapalian also has some thoughts worth reading (and information) about Benazir Bhutto's assassination and aftermath.
