Anusha Rehman Throws Quaid-e-Azam’s Picture Out of IT and Telecom Ministry

Anusha Rehman, the state minister for Telecom and IT, has technically thrown out the picture of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah – the founder of the nation – out from building of Ministry of IT and Telecom.

Recently produced pictures from MoIT show a picture of Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, the Prime Minister of Pakistan and direct boss of Ms. Anusha Rehman, instead of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s portrait.

Its a shame that PML(N) government is following the footstep of PPP(P) by preferring their party leaders over Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

It merits mentioning here that PPP (P) government, at few occasions, had removed the portrait of Quaid-e-Azam from meeting rooms and had used pictures of their political leaders, including Asif Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.



MoIT has responded to this post by saying that portrait of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is displayed at all official offices, as per usual government protocol.

Similarly, a portrait of Quaid-e-Azam is displayed in the office of Minister as well.

However, the images in question (and produced below) is informal seating in Minister’s office where she meets delegates.

Ministry said that picture of Prime Minister was displayed on the wall which was previously empty.


Check below the two pictures (along with captions) shown on MoIT website:

      Wouldn’t bother me. Why do we need his picture everywhere? We are supposed to be Muslims.

    • Faisal

      That was meant to be for Zardari :p

  • Zohair

    May be the position has been changed? Or the photographs were intentionally taken to include Nawaz Shareef’s photo? No?

  • Luqman Khan

    I have this feeling that Anusha Rehman isn’t right choice for Ministry of I.T. It should have been given to some young guy!

    • abobobilly

      She is a Lawyer so yes you are right.

      Who wants to bet that she got this position purely on the basis of her contacts with “Sher” <_<

    • Ali Salman

      What makes you think “young” boy can deliver ? Young “boy” like Imran Khan? A few days back 82 years old “boy” died, he invented “mouse” for PCs. So come out of your filmy desire that young can deliver better than experienced, ask for experienced irrespective of young and old.

      • abobobilly

        You guys are taking his thoughts in a very wrong way. I believe he has a valid point.

        Basically by “Young” he meant “Fresh Talent”. It isn’t just the age factor which makes everything good, neither is the experience. Its the enthusiasm, and mind you … only a young blood has enough to “Lead” an industry such as I.T.

        If you have different opinion then fine, but you don’t have to be so mean about it to others.

        As for YouTube, or Imran Khan … I haven’t seen him mention that and people are going nuts about it.

        This is exactly the problem of Paki awaam. Apni marzi se matlab nikaal lete hain har cheez ka.

        • Ali Salman

          aap apni marzi sy matlab na nikalo, where did anyone mentioned that he is mentioning this and that? Is it too difficult to understand what he is saying? This is IT ministry, we can’t afford doing experimentations by bringing “fresh” blood, Pakistan can’t afford this. Go search for ages of Ministers in your neighbors and see how they are benefiting from their experience. I think blood bank would be right place for fresh blood.

          • abobobilly

            Funny little fellow.

            I have no idea why people think changing a Govt or bringing some other (qualified ofcourse) would be “Experimental”.

            Ajeeb “Lakeer ki Fakeeri” hay.

            Its the exact thinking which is why Pakistan is not moving forward and stuck in this “Family Ownership” type of Control, by these PPPP or PML-N parties and yet people still need more (hard) lessons to find out their mistakes.

            Anyway, you are certainly implying that she was a “Right Choice” for IT Ministry. Lets see what she delivers. Not to mention she is the one who practically “Threated” Google for the removal of those Disturbing Contents.

            Way to go “Non-Experimental-aka-Experienced IT Ministry”.

        • Luqman Khan

          abobobilly well said brother!

    people like Anusha Rehman’s job is to lick the boots f their masters, this is what PPP had done and now Noon league is following the same path. they have no shame and no respect for the father of the nation. TO HELL WITH THEM!

    Seriously bro this is height of you turning this blog into a political blog. If you can’t copy more news from TomHardware guide please let this blog live a little more, this is bread and butter for you.

  • On a lighter note, Have you noticed there is a rechargeable china SOGO fan on the desk, which shows MoIT also got the loadshedding problem :)

  • Khurram ShahzAd

    In second pic I noticed she is posing more for camera other than concentrating on agenda of meeting, I bet she don’t understand any about IT and telecom.

  • Jamil

    She is a very narrow minded person out there to please trying to secure her position & please Nawaz.if Nawaz has some national sense ,he should fire her for this. Qaid’s photo is eternal. Nawz photo will be thrown out very soon ( Inshaallah ) by next coming and Qaid will appear again very soon.

  • Good

  • Syedshahi

    These people did not make Pakistan. So how would they care. They dont even know why and how Pakistan was created. Jamat e Islami said it was made for Islam. No. It was made for Muslims of the region. Nothing else. They are simple lohars what else can they think?

    • Subhan

      You people should have to see the posivite side of the picture,

      May be the position has been changed? Or the photographs were intentionally taken to include Nawaz Shareef’s photo

  • Usmaan

    They are trying to make “Gongloo” a leader.

    might be our Quaid’s picture is hanged on the back of her table… as we are shown only one side of picture… except criticizing let them do their work and wait for results… and i think if we think of picture of Main Muhammad Nawaz Sharif as not her boss but the Honorable President of Pakistan

    • Saleem

      Cmon guys, Nawaz Sharif and M A Jinnah are not too different. Both have an equal measure of intelligence, leadership acumen, statesmanship and diplomacy skills. Both exhibit similar traits ‘what true leaders are made of’ – so why complain. Doesnt reallymatter whose pic it is..Jinnah or Nawaz – its the same thing, innit? ;) [With due apology to Mr. Jinnah. RIP]

  • Haider

    PMLN is not doing anything good for IT industry. In fact, they are destroying it by blocking Skype to phone calls and other VOIP services and I don’t think she don’t even know how important is IT ministry and how to give people and businesses benefit with it. They are just there to make money for themselves and they will run away.

    Those who don’t care for the founder of Pakistan, do you think will care for ordinary pakistanis? All they care about is themselves and we are helping them to destroy us by giving our valuable votes to these useless people :(

    I think we all should raise our voices for Musharraf as he is the only person who actually care to improve Pakistan and pakistanis.

    Her act clearly shows her mental sickness and immaturity. By putting the picture of her boooooosssthe Prime Minister of Lahore Mian Nawaz, she has clearly showed that she is nothing but yet another “LOTTA FOR SALE” who literally bought this seat.

    It is good idea but as far as anusha rahman is concern she has not replaced quaid picture .Picture shown is in her waiting where Nwaz Sharif oicture is placed.i Tink PTI walo ko choti choti bato ko chornay kee adat hay.
