Axact, a software company, has recently been in the spot light after an article about it was published in New York Times by Declan Walsh. To save Pakistan from being tainted once again by a foreign invader, it’s important to learn more about this manipulator.
Declan Walsh, a New York Times journalist, is more than what meets the eye. He was the New York Times bureau chief of Pakistan, until he was given the persona non-grata status in 2013 for undesirable activities. In other words, he was told to pack his bags and leave because well you know…undesirable activities. And that’s all that was told.
And one should trust the Pakistani government, especially when it comes to these things. It’s not like they’ve ever been wrong about anything or tried to hide anything. This really is a free country! Yeah, okay, Pakistan did ban a whole channel for questioning an institution’s head, but what’s wrong with that? One simply cannot question the armed forces and intelligence agencies when they are busy protecting the country’s interests, toppling governments, spying on people, or simply bombing India. The important part is they protect the national interest.
But back to Declan Walsh – so who exactly is he and why shouldn’t you trust him?
1. Well firstly, Declan Walsh is either a RAW or C.I.A agent (maybe even both)
Plus, when you don’t have anything just blame India!
2. He questioned the Pakistani government with regards to their policy on Balochistan.
One simply cannot question the government about Balochistan. It’s better if one doesn’t mention it at all. #SomePakistaniFreedoms
3- After a little while he was given the Persona Non-Grata status for undesirable activities – basically a very undesirable chap.
Maybe these “undesirable activities” had to do with questioning the situation in Balochistan or the rise of extremism even in Pakistan’s political ground. These are all very wrong and bad things to question for a journalist. Basic Pakistan journalism 101 Declan?
4. He questioned the integrity of Pakistan.
How dare a foreign national challenge one of Pakistan’s institution? Or worse, try to stain the Nation’s image which is so awe-inspiring right now.
5. He’s against education.

Can’t you see, if this is proved only God knows how many people will be deemed frauds rather than graduates? As the wise Nawab Akbar Raisani said,”Degree degree hoti hai, jali ho yah asli!”
6. He works for a firm which is aligned with Express News.
One of the comments read: “Wtf are you trying to prove, don’t make a negative image of Pakistan to the world. I know there are some violence matters, inshaALLAH Pakistanis are going to make them right but plz show the positive image instead of negative”.
Another person accusing E.T of taking the side of Shite Muslims
One user claimed E.T was defaming Pakistan and spreading hatred by this report
Just look at the news they are publishing. It’s not Express News’ job to educate Pakistanis about global and local affairs. They’re a news agency and should act like one. Tell Pakistanis more about what Ayaan does in Adiyala Jail – things that are of greater importance.
6. Also because Kamran Khan said so.
Trust NYT on Axact but do recall what NYT dozens of stories alleged against Pak Army, Zardari, Nawaz Sharif, ISI, don't ignore the pattern

The New York Times has a personal vendetta against Pakistan, constantly trying to make Pakistanis doubt national heroes and symbols of pride. Okay, maybe there was a military coup here and there, an economic downfall, funding of extremist groups to satisfy a certain king or a few dozen corruption cases, but other than that a stellar job!
Next, let’s look at Axact and why they should be trusted.
1. Axact is the “World’s Leading IT Company” – catering to mostly small and medium sized businesses.
Apparently, they’re better than small companies such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, Oracle, IBM, SAP, Samsung, Intel. The list is extremely large so hopefully you get the idea.
2. Even though Axact is a muli-million dollar company, their CEO falls on the lower end of the income bracket.

What a trustworthy person – he pays his taxes!
Like a great leader, Shoaib Sheikh expressed to his employees that he wishes to be richer than Bill Gates. For someone with such high aspirations, it’s inspiring to see how little money he makes!
3. Axact is about to open a news network, Bol.
or, as it’s been recognized in the last few days, LOL.
Bol (Or Lol) is supposedly going to be the biggest news enterprise Pakistan has ever seen. So it’s all the more important that an organization that will most definitely shape the views and perceptions of Pakistanis regarding major events should not be questioned. Because apparently Pakistanis like to be told to think a certain way. Ignorance is truly a bliss.
4. Axact has brought a one-stop solution for education.
Your whole family can be certified degree holders in a matter of weeks. Look how productive this will be for everyone – students wouldn’t have to waste their precious time learning stuff. Instead, they can utilize it on other fraudulent ventures. One day, there might even have a new born with a Doctorate degree.
5. Their digital prints are on dozens of allegedly scam university sites.

Maybe it was an elaborate charity scheme to earn money for the poor. So maybe in the end it was all for the needy.
6. And they gave a response to the allegations! Now that’s leading from the front… well somewhat at least.
“Axact condemns this story as baseless, substandard, maligning and defamatory. It has been published without taking the company’s point of view in perspective. The defamatory article published on 18th May, 2015, today’s events and their derogatory portrayal by the media proves that this is a massive conspiracy by the seths of the Pakistani media industry to defame BOL and Axact and derail the launch of BOL. Employees and their families were terrorized to disrupt the operations of Axact. The scale of this conspiracy becomes clear by the fact that the media owners even fell to the extent of spreading negativity among BOLwalas via SMSs and emails. New joinees of BOL were suggested to wait and think upon their decision as further malicious campaigns are lined up.”
Okay, maybe their response didn’t count for much.
7. They love to sue anything that moves or tweets.
