According to some, Islamic extremists are a big influence behind the scenes. 

I don't really know otherwise. But Imran Khan might be a 'lesser evil' compared to some (I mean he might be a 'good person' relative to others) which might not be a good thing for other countries who want to have influence on Pakistan. 

He was well known in the UK and other commonwealth countries where cricket is popular prior to his career in politics, as he is Pakistan's greatest sportsman.

Further to your point in this thread, going off tangent slightly. Anyone have any thoughts on his former marriage to Jemima Goldsmith, who is from a family connected to Rothschilds ? I think it was mentioned that it was a sort of 'arranged marriage' ?

Who do we surmise pulls pakistans strings?

How Pakistan’s Politicians Help the Military

Every time civilian politicians bend laws to accommodate the generals, they damage long-term prospects for democracy.

Jan. 23, 2020
 

By Aqil Shah

Mr. Shah is the author of “The Army and Democracy: Military Politics in Pakistan.

Since its foundation in 1947, Pakistan has spent more than three decades under military rule. Even when out of power, the military has exerted behind-the-scenes influence to maintain its firm grip on politics and national security. Establishing democratic institutions, including civilian control of the military, has thus been an arduous process riddled with uncertainty, backsliding and reversal.

The military rule the country without a doubt They select Prime Ministers to convey the pretence of democracy to save face. As long as the handpicked stooge goes along with everything the military says, he's safe. When he or she begin to go off script, they either get sacked or killed. The question is who ultimately has the military's ear.

Imran Khan ousted as Pakistan's PM after key vote

9 April 2022
Updated 5 hours ago
 

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has been ousted from power after losing a no-confidence vote in his leadership.

The vote was held past midnight after opposition parties brought a motion against him, following days of drama.

The motion was first brought against Mr Khan last week, but he blocked it by dissolving parliament. 

Sunday's vote took place after the country's Supreme Court ruled in favour of opposition parties and said that Mr Khan had acted unconstitutionally.

Mr Khan is now the first Pakistani prime minister to be ousted by a no-confidence vote.

Pakistan's parliament will meet to vote for the country's new leader on Monday.

That person will be able to hold power until October 2023, when the next election is due to be held.

I wouldn't be surprised if America is behind this. When the war in Ukraine started Imran Khan was in Moscow kissing Putin's hand. This has obviously upset them very much.

Perhaps America has a lot of say over the Pak army.

I think they have very strong, long time contacts going at least back to the 80s when the yanks supported the mujahaideen (with training, intel and equipment) against the russians. Actually I think both brits and yank intelligence orgs have long established relationships with some of these people from that period. Brits probably even longer - all the way from partition itself.

    • The muslims cannot really do much in Leicester so they picked an easy target in Birmingham.  And they use what they are good at which is the numbers game.  I wish there was a community that breeds at higher rates than the muslims so that when the muslims try to get their numbers that they get out-numbered by another community.  As to your post that you mentioned about us Sikhs being outnumbered by mobs from other communities is that although we are quite a docile race, we have a knack of being extremely well organised and disciplined when the time comes and this bodes well when tackling an unruly mob particularly when being outnumbered.  It's like some kind of dormant gene that gets activated. You saw how quickly our community galvanised during 2011 riots, how quickly during the Kisaan protests. Like MrrSingh said we are a walking contradiction. 
    • From what happened last week it looked like the Hindus started it and the muslims ended up on top with what happened in Birmingham.  You're right apne don't really bully minorities, we are racist though. I can't blame the Hindus to some extent when it comes to suls. Their leadership let them down big time allowing huge amounts of suls to stay behind after partition. We've been fortunate to have an almost sul free Punjab, we only know what suls are like due to living next to them in the west. Punjab has the lowest percentage of suls in all of India. Suls like to push the boat to see what they can get away with and when they go too far like they did in Myanmar recently, the majority community finally has enough and retaliate. If they were a community that kept their head down and worked hard no one would hate them but they just try to push their way of life on all of us. They have conflicts with every other religion. 
    • One major factor for the Hindus are doing what they are doing in the UK is the political backing. The Hindu political leadership in India is comprised of Gujjus and it is the Gujju diaspora that is spearheads in countries abroad.  Even if we had this level of political backing, we Sikhs don't do what these two other communities do.  We are wired differently. Even if we were an overwhelming majority, we don't pick on other communities.  But for some reason, these two other communities love to use their numbers.  But as a neutral observer, it is interesting to see Muslims in the UK on the back foot.  The Hindu lobby groups seem to have turned the tables on the Muslim lobby groups.  The police and local authorities seem to protect Muslims but they look quite helpless.  Muslim lobby groups seem to infiltrate systems from a lower level but the Hindu lobby groups seem to be excercise from a higher level. So it seems to be top-down vs bottom-up.      
    • The thing is that Hindus will only give it the large when in a significant majority and as soon as the numbers turn against them they pretty much give up. The only exception I've seen to this is the Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka. They also have appalling unity, did the Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali Hindus come to help the Gujaratis? Nope. Yet you had Arabs and Somalians helping the Indian muslims and Pakistanis.  Sikhs historically have always been a minority in India and even greater Punjab so we are used to fighting when the numbers are against us. Just look at how we retaliated against the muslims of UP who heavily outnumber us when they tried to take our land. Even in Hyderabad Sikhs have fought against Muslims who make up a huge amount of the city.
