Lord of the ‘fellowships’; Malik Siraj Akbar

spy-vs-spy-without-bombsAfter taking a hiatus it seems that the Pak-Phobes lobby (PP for short) [1] at theHuffington Post is at it again. Once again they’ve launched the comical Malik Siraj Akbar.
His latest blog post is once again illustrating that his ‘fellowships’ have not been able to improve upon his lazy and ill-researched writing. In his latest entry, Mr. Akbar talks about the death of terrorist Manan Baluch, and the IDP’s. Everything that he writes about as ‘fact’, is in fact, not. Perhaps if the Carnegie centre for ‘peace’ could confer a fellowship in comedic fiction based research on the poor chap than maybe his posts would make more sense.
He starts his post solemnly mourning the loss of terrorist leader Manan Baluch, followed quickly by introducing the Baluchistan National Movement (BNM) to his readership. In it he describes the movement as ‘a political party that opposes Balochistan’s [what it bills as ‘forceful’] annexation with Pakistan and calls for a free homeland for the Baloch people.’ This is an interesting description as unexpectedly Mr. Akbar has shown his support for the Kashmiri and Palestinian people and their struggle for a separate homeland.
