Re: the killing of Hazaras. Is it just that they are kufr shias and thus bull cattle, or is it also revenge for their ethnic cousins in Afghanistan being allies with the Northern Alliance against the Taliban?

If it is the latter, the US has a moral obligation to intervene, at lease diplomatically.

OK. I am waiting for the DENIAL in the next few days from the Cheeni Bilathels that they are not bankrolling any nuclear plants. Of late seems like a bunch of Bakis are smoking up some Afgani maal and writing press releases about the beeline made by foreign investors to rush to the land of pure with incredulous investments!

Sleeveless outfits are haram
Responding to a question by a reader, Aapa Hammad writes in Khwateen Ka Islam that sleeveless or half-sleeved outfits are haram for women unless they wear it for their husbands in the bedroom. She said unnatural sex between a husband and a wife was haram, although some men try to justify it. But during her menstrual periods, a woman could satisfy her man using other methods.
Pakistanis are the wisest nation in the world
Writing in Dunya, Rauf Klasra says his foreigner friend was surprised to hear about a survey according to which Germans were the wisest nation in the world. He thought Pakistanis were the wisest nation in the world because even the children here are politicians and experts on everything under the sun. The people of the West cannot even imagine the number of conspiracy theories that Pakistani children have memorized.
Revealing clothes cause breast cancer
Writing in Khwateen Ka Islam, Aapa Hammad says 53% women suffer from breast cancer in Pakistan. The reason is that they wear thin and revealing shirts, which are forbidden in Islam. Breast cancer is a wrath of God for such women.
Punjab hires Ahmadis to teach Islamiyat
Daily Islam reports that Shahbaz Sharif's government has recruited about two dozen Ahmadis to teach Islamiyat in Punjab's schools. The daily warns him of dire consequences if he did not sack them.

Bahria keeps quiet on UAE group’s clarification


ISLAMABAD/LAHORE, Feb 22: The administration of Bahria Town (BT) housing scheme kept mum on Friday despite a damaging clarification from Abu Dhabi Group (ADG) that there was no agreement between them for a $45 billion investment in Pakistan’s housing sector.

A large advertisement published in national dailies on behalf of ADG said the management of BT floated a misleading news item on Feb 15 claiming that BT and ADG had signed an agreement under which the group will invest $45bn in the housing sector and build the world’s tallest building in Karachi.

A number of attempts were made to contact owners and officials of BT, but they did not come out with their group’s reply to the ADG disclaimer.

However, Col (retd) Tanveer Ahmed, personal secretary to the owner of BT, Malik Riaz, did talk on the matter and challenged authenticity of the advertisement. He claimed that the advertisement was got published by some people who were against BT, and not by the management of ADG.

“There was no telephone number or e-mail address in the advertisement. This shows that it was fake,” he said.


He, however, had no reply to a query that if the advertisement was fake, why the BT administration had not come on the media with its version.

The personal secretary to the owner of BT is a proud upholder of the towering traditions of jihad-fistula PA. Surely, his training in the formative years is finding its use. They are the masters of denial.

But the best denial is about Kargil.

a) Denied that PA was involved
b) Denied that they ever denied that PA was not involved
c) Last month, on Times Now, out of their Musharaff, came the statement that from Musharaff denying that they ever denied that freedom fighters (ffs) were involved, denying that they denyied that it was the PA when ffs were involved. Denyied that how could his generals deny that ffs were not involved when he denied his generals didn't know enough to deny.

Waiting for the next set of denials on this one! :shock:

Equals the Mumbai blast denials. Pakistan is the only country, in the Universe, (and I will confirm with Capt. Kirk or Spock on that) which comprises of two elements: State and Non-state.

Matter and Anti-Matter together. :D

This is epic, epic I tell you. :rotfl:

I think Pakistanis should change their national anthem to reflect the fact that reality has multiple meanings in Pakistan.

I propose a great hymn composed by that South Asian genius Dada Kondke, titled "Teri le lu" (please to search on YouTube for the song).

Imagine the TFTA Pakistani army marching to this stirring reflection of their national character, imagine this being played at the Wagah border: teri le lu.....o teri le lu... baahe baah me

Then yet again 'religious parties opposed creation of Pakistan and opposed Jinnah's Pakistan movement so who are they to dictate to us today' :((

Discrimination on gender basis
baki mard e momeen complaining about women getting 20 grace marks in exams for teacher recruitment
THIS is about awarding, on a gender basis, 20 marks to women for recruiting teachers in Sindh. This is injustice with talented youths. Men are head of their families and have to support them financially. I secured 88 marks in the test in 2008, but I was not appointed because girls were given 20 extra marks just on the basis of their gender


He can easily become a moulavi in some madarsa with his talents

paki talibs in cheena complaining too
Pakistani students in China appeal to their govt
CURRENTLY more than 400 Pakistani PhD and master’s students are studying in different Chinese universities under the cultural exchange programme run by the Inter-Provincial Coordination Committee (IPCC) of the Pakistan government. They are facing financial issues.


Angrezi used is so lahori that it required phd from cheena to figure out the takleef
The government is simply not paying the subsidy which it had promised. Students, who were scrutinised from the whole country after a tough NTS test, have to rely solely on the monthly stipend given by the Chinese Scholarship Council, the Government of China, which is sufficient to feed them only with careful use of the money.

The programme was initiated in 2007-2008, and students were paid subsidies for the first five years, but it has been stopped since 2011 as the fund has still to be re-issued by the government for the said programme.

Upon contacting the authorities concerned, it is said that the matter will be resolved as soon as possible. In such a situation, it has become a serious problem for the students to concentrate on their research, while struggling with the financial crisis.

The government is requested to speed up the process as it has already taken two years to start financing the intellectuals of the homeland

Because they are shias and from Baluchistan. Paki TFTA army thinks they can cause a shia sunni fight and Baluchistan freedom fight will die down.

The monster they begotted
Short Paki story On islam, Pakistan , Jinnah and Fourfathers
A. Ik baal
Drown, O people, drown. Do not try to escape. You cannot. Feel the burden of your sins. It will not let you swim. You never lived peacefully. So at least die peacefully. Let the water rise above your head and pull you down,” said the monster.“I am no Noah. I have no boat. I cannot save any, man or animal. You followed me. Now pay the price,” the monster roared.“But before you disappear, let me tell you a story. It is your story. Your indictment. You must hear it so that you know why you are dying.”All wanted him to do the same thing: to kill their enemies. That’s why they invented these fancy titles for him.The islamist monster was good at his work. He was efficient, ferocious and swift. He killed so many and so quickly that the entire world had to sit up and notice.The external enemies, who were supposedly the main target, suffered much. But soon they learned how to deal with the monster.As it became difficult for the Islamist monster to hunt in other cities, he focused his attention on the people he was hired to fight for. Soon a river of blood flew from his forest to the town. It surrounded all four neighbourhoods, hissing like a snake, always expanding.People were in great distress. They spent their days counting the dead and nights mourning them. Every day there were new deaths and every night more people to mourn.Even the chief protector’s soldiers were not spread. Thousands were dispatched to Jannat.The river of blood entered the town, knocking at every door, hissing at every resident.Young and old, men, women and children, all suffered.So the chiefs were forced to take notice. They paid several visits to the monster, urging him to focus on their external enemies only. He refused to obey them.Next, they asked him to stop the killings. He refused.They came back, not knowing what to do.Since then the killings have continued unabated. The river of blood continues to rise, day by day. People do not know how to escape it, where to go, what to do. Now even the chiefs fear they too will drown in this river.“You heard the indictment,” said the monster as he finished the story. “Now hear the sentence: you will all drown in the river of blood.”

On inter-sectarian differences
Mr.Hussain Nadim is a lecturer at the National University of Science and Technology in Islamabad. Last year he conducted a survey. The respondents were (according to Mr.Nadim) representative of upper middle class / elite youth of Pakistan. Two interesting conclusions from the survey:
1. Shias were considered to be 'kafirs' by 68% of the respondents. Assuming 20% of the respondents were Shias, around 85% ( = (68 / 80) * 100 ) of non-Shias consider Shias to be 'kafirs'!
2. 94% of respondents viewed Ahmadis as 'kafirs'. So, clearly some Shias are in the group of people branding Ahmadis as infidels in spite of suffering similar attacks themselves!

Mr.Nadim's article on this is published in the Daily Times. The link is: http://dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?pa ... 2013_pg3_4

The author pessimistically concludes that 'Pakistan's major issue in the years to come will be no other than inter-sectarian differences, radicalisation and violence'.

On the killings of Hazaras in Quetta, there is an article by Anwer Mooraj in The Express Tribune. He says
So, in my opinion, these settlers from Afghanistan are left with only one option. They have to stand up and fight like the heroic Polish Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto. They have to try to get financing from abroad so they can hire mercenaries who can track down these militants and give them a taste of their own medicine. And they have to become guerillas.
...
In other words, they have to take a page or two out of Mao’s book. With the administration being paralysed, they might just get away with it.

2,500 Hazara families offered asylum
Fiqar not, White Paki to rescue

ISLAMABAD: The Australian government has offered asylum to over 2,500 Hazara families of Balochistan and urged the United Nations refugee agency in Pakistan to facilitate migration of the community facing sectarian violence, Australian embassy sources said.The UNHCR was informed that Australia was willing to accommodate 2,500 families or 7,000 individuals of the Hazara community, keeping in view attacks on them.“Yes we have started work on facilitating members of Shia minority and other people prone to sectarian violence for giving them refuge in Australia. The Australian government wants our assistance in this regard,” Maya Ameratunga, deputy representative of United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Pakistan, confirmed to Dawn.On Saturday, over 100 members of the Shia Hazara community were killed in a bomb attack in Quetta. The dead included 33 registered Afghan refugees, triggering condemnation from the UNHCR that asked authorities to protect the lives of refugees in this hour of sadness.Official sources told Dawn that the Ministry of States and Frontier Regions (Safron) had been informed about Australia’s offer.The resettlement process would be taken up after the return of UNHCR’s Country Representative Neil Wright to Pakistan from Geneva.“The resettlement process is a complicated issue as we have to identify the most vulnerable and affected families of Hazara Shia community in Balochistan,” Ms Ameratunga said, adding that they would soon give a list of 2,500 families to the Australian governmen

I am afraid that the above report is not true. According to Dawn, 'Australia on Thursday denied it had launched any special asylum programme for the Hazaras, the target of the recent terrorist attacks in Quetta'.

The citizens of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan can take pride from the achievement that they have not just equalled India but handily beaten India and that to by the divinely ordained one Mohammadden Momin Pakistani equals ten Non Mohammadden Kaafir Indian ratio :wink: .

Murder Statistics from Karachi in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

“According to the police report, 1,201 people were killed in 2009, 1,727 in 2010, 2,042 in 2011 and 2,375 in 2012.” ( From here: The News).

Comparative murder statistics from India, namely from Mumbai:

“While 227 murder cases were registered in 2010, the number decreased to 202 in 2011.” (From Here: Indian express)

No more cricket, for now - Anita Joshua, The Hindu
Pakistan Cricket Board’s attempt to put the country back on the international cricket circuit with a T-20 edition featuring leading cricketers from the game worldover has hit a roadblock. And, by the looks of it, the proposed Pakistan Super League (PSL) will not become part of the cricket calendar anytime soon.

With the Federation of International Cricketers Associations and many a national board advising players against participating in PSL owing to security considerations, the PCB has decided to postpone the event indefinitely. Cricket associations of England, Australia and South Africa independently also advised their players against participating in PSL because of the security situation.

The Board, however, insists PSL was postponed because of scheduling issues :rotfl: and the request of many stakeholders for more time to prepare for the series which was initially planned for a March-end launch. According to the Board, over 80 foreign players have already signed agreements with PSL. Also, foreign coaches, umpires and referees have signed up. :rotfl:

The reasons cited notwithstanding, the postponement has come as a big disappointment to the cricket-crazy nation which has not had an international fixture played on its soil since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March 2009.


Inveterate liars, all Pakistanis.

I am afraid that the above report is not true. According to Dawn, 'Australia on Thursday denied it had launched any special asylum programme for the Hazaras, the target of the recent terrorist attacks in Quetta'.

In a country of denial and of denying denials, it has come to international community to remind pakis what a denial means actually. Soon the country will become an epicenter of denials literally.

Insight: Spiral of Karachi killings widens Pakistan's sectarian divide
(Reuters) - When Aurangzeb Farooqi survived an attempt on his life that left six of his bodyguards dead and a six-inch bullet wound in his thigh, the Pakistani cleric lost little time in turning the narrow escape to his advantage.

Recovering in hospital after the ambush on his convoy in Karachi, Pakistan's commercial capital, the radical Sunni Muslim ideologue was composed enough to exhort his followers to close ranks against the city's Shi'ites.

"Enemies should listen to this: my task now is Sunni awakening," Farooqi said in remarks captured on video shortly after a dozen gunmen opened fire on his double-cabin pick-up truck on December 25.

"I will make Sunnis so powerful against Shi'ites that no Sunni will even want to shake hands with a Shi'ite," he said, propped up in bed on emergency-room pillows. "They will die their own deaths, we won't have to kill them."
While the Quetta carnage grabbed world attention, a Reuters inquiry into a lesser known spate of murders in Karachi, a much bigger conurbation, suggests the violence is taking on a volatile new dimension as a small number of Shi'ites fight back.
Police suspect LeJ, which claimed responsibility for the Quetta blasts, and its sympathizers may also be the driving force behind the murder of more than 80 Shi'ites in Karachi in the past six months, including doctors, bankers and teachers.

In turn, a number of hardline Sunni clerics who share Farooqi's suspicion of the Shi'ite sect have been killed in drive-by shootings or barely survived apparent revenge attacks. Dozens of Farooqi's followers have also been shot dead.
"The divide is getting much bigger between Shia and Sunni. You have to pick sides now," said Sundus Rasheed, who works at a radio station in Karachi. "I've never experienced this much hatred in Pakistan."
"We say Shias are infidels. We say this on the basis of reason and arguments," Farooqi, a wiry, intense man with a wispy beard and cascade of shoulder-length curls, told Reuters. "I want to be called to the Supreme Court so that I can prove using their own books that they are not Muslims."
Pakistani officials suspect regional powers are stoking the fire, with donors in Saudi Arabia and other Sunni-dominated Gulf countries funding LeJ, while Shi'ite organizations turn to Iran.

Whatever factors are driving the violence, the state's ambivalent response has raised questions over the degree of tolerance for LeJ by elements in the security establishment, which has a long history of nurturing Deobandi proxies.

Under pressure in the wake of the Quetta bombings, police arrested Ishaq at his home in the eastern Punjab province on Friday under a colonial-era public order law.

But in Karachi, Farooqi and his thousands of followers project a new aura of confidence. Crowds of angry men chant "Shia infidel! Shia infidel" at rallies and burn effigies while clerics pour scorn on the sect from mosque loudspeakers after Friday prayers. A rash of graffiti hails Farooqi as a savior.

Over glasses of milky tea, he explained that his goal was to convince the government to declare Shi'ites non-Muslims, as it did to the Ahmadiyya sect in 1974, as a first step towards ostracizing the community and banning a number of their books.
Detectives believe the small Shi'ite Mehdi Force group, comprised of about 20 active members in Karachi, is behind several of the attacks on Deobandi clerics and their followers.

The underground network is led by a hardened militant codenamed "Shaheed", or martyr, who recruits eager but unseasoned middle-class volunteers who compensate for their lack of numbers by stalking high-profile targets.

"They don't have a background in terrorism, but after the Shia killings started they joined the group and they tried to settle the score," said Superintendent of Police Raja Umar Khattab. "They kill clerics."

In November, suspected Mehdi Force gunmen opened fire at a tea shop near the Ahsan-ul-Uloom seminary, where Farooqi has a following, killing six students. A scholar from the madrasa was shot dead the next month, another student killed in January.

"It was definitely a reaction, Shias have never gone on the offensive on their own," said Deputy Inspector-General Shahid Hayat.
