Pakistan's Punjab Government Allocates Millions for JuD - New Indian Express

The government of Pakistan's Punjab province has allocated millions of rupees in its budget for fiscal 2013-14 for the largest centre of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, considered a front for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Besides a grant-in-aid of over Rs 61 million for the JuD centre known as 'Markaz-e-Taiba', the provincial government has allocated Rs 350 million for setting up a "Knowledge Park" at the centre and other development initiatives.

Details of the allocations were presented in budget documents tabled in the Punjab Assembly yesterday by the PML-N government led by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

One document stated: "Grant-in-aid to chief administrator Muridkey Markaz (is) Rs 61.35 million." The JuD's centre is located at Muridkay on the outskirts of Lahore.

In his budget speech in the assembly, Finance Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman announced that the provincial government "intends to establish a Knowledge Park in Muridkey".

He said the government had allocated Rs 350 million for the park and several other initiatives in Punjab.


Shortly after the UN Security Council designated the JuD, a front for the LeT in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, the Punjab government took over the centre in Muridkey.

At that time too, Punjab was ruled by the PML-N. Since then, the government has allocated money in its annual budget for the administration of the centre in Muridkey.

In 2009-10, the government provided more than Rs 82 million for the administration of JuD facilities.

In fiscal 2010-11, Chief Minister Sharif, using his discretionary powers, allocated two separate grants for JuD facilities. The government granted Rs 79.77 million for six organisations at Markaz-e-Taiba and a special grant-in-aid of Rs 3 million for the JuD’s Al-Dawa School System in several districts of Punjab.

Officials have said in the past that the allocations were needed to continue "welfare services" provided by the JuD’s schools, dispensaries and hospitals across the province of 90 million.

In the past, the Punjab government defended its decision of allocating money to the JuD by saying the grants had been awarded for the administrator of the Markaz-e-Toiba.

There is no formal ban on the JuD and its chief, Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, lives freely in Lahore despite a 10-million dollar bounty offered for him by the US.


In July, 2011, the Supreme Court released the operational chief of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Malik Ishaq, who was involved in 44 cases of terror involving the deaths of 70 people. We now know that sectarian attacks on Shias and Ahmedis have increased exponentially since then. It also emerged later that the Punjab government of PML-N had been giving Malik Ishaq's family stipend since c. 2008. It turned out that the claim of the Punjab Law Minister, Rana Sanaullah, that the stipend was given due to a court ruling was indeed false as there was no such court ruling. Though display of arms in the open is prohibited in Pakistan, the Punjab Government (led by Shehbaz Sharif, the brother of ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif) would not take any action against such acts by the SSP or LeT or LeJ. The Punjab Law Minister, Rana Sanaullah, in the Shehbaz Sharif cabinet was even more blatant when he took the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) leader Maulana Muhammad Ahmed Ludhianvi on a ride in his car when he went to Jhang in c. 2010 and pay obeisance at the tombs of slain SSP leaders. The Punjab Governor had to write a letter to the Chief Minister bringing to his attention the “Law Minister Rana Sanaullah’s links with banned terrorist outfits.” Of course, nothing happened except that the Governor himself was shot dead by his own bodyguard a while later. Later, in March 2010, when a series of terrorist attacks took place in Lahore, the Punjab Chief Minister, Shehbaz Sharif asked the terrorists to exclude Punjab from their attacks because Punjab does not obey the dictates of foreign powers. He was probably referring to the refusal of the Punjab Government to arrest Prof. Hafeez Saeed in spite of constant pressure from India and the US. Shahbaz Sharif also said, "the Taliban’s stance on foreign dictation was the same as the PML-N’s view". It goes to show that essentially the terrorist leaders have been protected by visible hands in Pakistan even when they are accused of trying to kill their own President and Prime Minister.

I think Pakistan has chosen the halal name for the LNG project - Mashaal
:rotfl:
They had a bunch of choices before them - Inferno, Bum Blast, Atim Bum, etc. but they chose the halal urdoo version - Mashaal

May the light from the Mashaal soon reach the LNG terminal - that is if it ever sees the light of the day.

AoA to that

US, UK support for Baloch leader shocks Pakistan, allies at UN
LONDON: Britain and America shocked Pakistan and its allies at the 23rd regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s general debate in Geneva on 7 June when the two countries clearly supported nationalist leader Mehran Marri, Balochistan’s representative to the UN, who spoke against the recent elections and alleged that Pakistan was committing rights abuses in Balochistan.

shyamd, AFAIK, there is nothing that I have seen in open literature that spoke of any such visit. The Pakis, for sometime now, have been concentrating on Russia, which is quite understandable as well in not only the overall Af-Pak context but also in the Balochistan context.

But, frankly, the Pakistanis should not feign 'shock'. They sowed the wind and are reaping the whirlwind. How many such 'Marris' that they sponsored from India ? Now, it is their turn.

SS garu, not sure how much traction US and British support can take Balochis on the path to independence, take what happened to Karzai. He is left mid way with the "war on terrorism". US and Brit interests are self serving. This could be a way to gain some concessions from Pakis? in the short term, it could give a voice to Balochi cause, but that's about it, so far in history, western perspective has been the same, that of serving, myopic in nature.

Thanks, no high level visits since April per my check. If you chance upon any high level meetings please page me.

They had a tri nation air force exercise with Turkey KSA and Pak 2 weeks ago. This is the Iran mil alliance. Just seeing if they are posturing over Syria as I think we will see a surprise there soon.

Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline : PPP warns against scrapping project

ISLAMABAD : The Pakistan Peoples Party on Tuesday sought a clear-cut policy from the government on the multi-billion dollar Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project and the energy crisis.

Former federal minister Syed Naveed Qamar cautioned the government about the consequences of scrapping the project and said Pakistan would have to pay billions of rupees to Iran if it did not fulfill its obligations.

The government must complete the project before December 2014 or face penalties,
he said

Addressing the National Assembly, Qamar asked “Will the US pay our fines?” and then answered his own question: “nothing like this will happen.”

The project is vital for Pakistan as it is the only solution to the energy crisis, Qamar said while advising the government to pursue the project.

He also urged the government to formally announce its policy on the IP gas pipeline in clear terms as there were many suspicions. “The government should decide whether to please the US and Saudi Arabia or to implement the IP gas pipeline project in the national interest,” he added.

Pakistani freedom fighters are becoming bolder attacking Military convoys! They sent 6 to claim their houris.

The security forces also claimed to have killed at least four attackers as a search operation is ongoing in the area.


I am sure no bodies of the freedom fighters are found as they were taken away.

India concerned at funds for JuD - The Hindu
India on Wednesday expressed concern at millions of rupees allocated by the government of Pakistan’s Punjab province to Jamat-ud-Dawa, saying New Delhi would “carefully” analyse the matter before taking it up with Islamabad.

“I have seen the budget provision that have been made for the Markaz-e-Taiba [the largest centre of the Jamat]. It’s only a budget that has been presented. {What does Salman Kurshud mean by that ? He isn't aware of the earlier gifts of such funds through the budget. He isn't aware of the state support, especially the ruling PML-N in the Punjab, or LeT/JuD. Is he fit enough to be our Foreign Minister ?} We have time on our side and we will look into it carefully,” External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said here.

‘Will take up the matter with Pakistan’

Mr. Khurshid, who is on a two-day visit to Iraq, said: “As advised by the agencies concerned, we will take up the matter with Pakistan.” Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the parent body of the banned terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba that carried out the 2008 attacks, has been allocated Rs. 61 million in the budget for the current fiscal.

Pakistan to ask IMF for $5bn to $6bn bailout package

KARACHI : Pakistan is all set to seek a bailout package of around $5 billion to $6 billion from International Monetary Fund (IMF) in order to help and support falling economic conditions of the country, financial experts said on Wednesday.

Nawaz Sharif’s government officials, including members of the Ministry of Finance (MoF) started talks with the IMF officials, as the government is keen to improve the economy of the country.

“We will ask IMF to provide us the required loan on easy terms without imposing any conditions that could be harmful for our economic fibre,” Pakistan's Condition Paramount for granting Favour to give Pakistan "The Loan"! said official sources at the MoF.

In case of IMF’s yes, the donor could ask Pakistan for increasing gas and power tariff in mode of every three-month period besides tightening government borrowing from central and commercial banks, said foreign currency expert Fazal Ahmad.

However, if the IMF persists for increase in gas and power tariff the government would drop the plan to borrow loan. So what is the alternative?

In case Pakistan refuses to bow down in front of IMF’s conditions, the fund managers of the country would probably ask for a Letter of Comfort in order to hold talks with World Bank and Asian Development Bank for loan. Zee Alternative - Luberly

Time has arrived to repay around $140 million to IMF under its Stand-by Arrangement (SBA) loan facility by June 28, 2013.

He said the rupee and forex reserves remained under pressure and it seemed the newly elected government of Nawaz would have to face challenges when it would go for repayment of $3.9 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2013-14, $1.35 billion in FY 2014-15 and $60 million in FY 2015-16.

The government could lessen pressure on rupee-dollar parity and forex reserves by utilising overseas Pakistanis remittances in a judicious manner besides to attract foreign investment from overseas Pakistanis and international business houses.

The repayment of IMF SBA will probably put some pressure on local currency value against the dollar and forex reserves position. The rupee fell to an all-time low level of Rs 100.05 against the dollar in the open market in February and May 2013 due to repayments.

The country has hardly two-and-a-half months import bill amount, which it has to provide in shape of L/Cs, food import bills, edible oil import bills and crude oil bills.

It is of utmost importance for the new government to address its dwindling foreign exchange reserves and assure international donors of stable economic conditions.

According to State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), the largest concern right now is the repayment of IMF loans, however SBP has more than enough reserves to cover dues to the IMF.

Pakistan got loan of $7.80 billion in March 2008 when the dollar-rupee value was around Rs 64 in open market.

Pakistan has to pay around $1.60 billion in excess against retiring loan with interest and hike in dollar value, he added.

After the above display of the Mohammadden Terrorist supporting tendencies of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) political party, a display of the Mohammadden Terrorist supporting tendencies of legislator’s of former cricketer playboy Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party shows up.

PTI Party legislator Mujahid Ali Khan calls for the release of the Policeman Bodyguard Malik Mumtaz Qadri, who betrayed the trust of being a bodyguard and killed Punjab Governor Salman Taseer in 2011 for coming out in support of a Christian woman who it was claimed blasphemed some aspect of Mohammaddenism.

Cannot say I am surprised with the "Jihadi Pasand" way on display from a member of the PTI given the "Jihadi Pasand" ways of Imran Khan:

Naya Pakistan?: PTI MNA calls for Mumtaz Qadri's release

Mohammadden Terrorists it would appear do not need to capture the Government, they already have the likeminded within the Parliamentary system of the Islamic Republic.

11:34 AM Afghan, Pakistan envoys clash at UNSC meet:
Top diplomats from Afghanistan and Pakistan engaged in verbal sparring during a discussion on cross-border terrorism and presence of terrorist safe havens, at the United Nations Security Council.

"The fact remains: so long as terrorist sanctuaries continue to exist in Pakistan's soil and some elements continue to use terrorism as an instrument of foreign policy, peace will not prevail, neither in Afghanistan, nor in the region," Afghan Ambassador to the UN, Zahir Tanin, told the 15-member body during a special Security Council discussion on Afghanistan, on Thursday.

"We also are very concerned with ongoing border shelling; this constitutes a serious threat to Afghan sovereignty and the prospect of friendly relations between our two countries," Tanin said referring to the recent exchange of fire across the Af-Pak border.

Pakistani Ambassador to the UN, Masood Khan, later was sharper in his response.

"I reject most emphatically Ambassador Tanin's argument -- root, trunk and branch -- that terrorist sanctuaries exist in Pakistan and some elements continue to use terrorism as an instrument of foreign policy," Khan said.

"No, sir, this is not true; and you know this is not true. And this is not good diplomacy. By using such arguments, you cast aspersions on our sincerity," he said

"In Pakistan, we do not operate as elements, but as a whole, as one state. All institutions of the state have consensus that terrorism is a threat to both Pakistan and Afghanistan and therefore both countries should work together to eliminate this scourge," Khan said.

Peregrine ji, if even a 1% raise is declared 'null & void' by the SC, then where is the scope for comprehensive tax reforms that the IMF has been demanding for five years now ?

As an aside, who is ruling TSP today ? Is it the SC or the Parliament or the PA ?

Images from Balochistan
As far as images go, there are other choices. If we wish to be current, we could use photographs of graveyards: those where the Hazaras lie buried; others where the bodies of the 15 determined, confident young women students of the Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University in Quetta were laid to rest by distraught relatives as well as those where ten more persons killed in the subsequent attack on the Bolan Medical Complex have been interred. The Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has claimed responsibility for this act of insanity. It is impossible to understand why this evil force is not acted against. Who prevents this from happening and why? These too are questions that need answers.

Perhaps the barren mountains of Chaghai, where the country’s nuclear bomb was tested in 1998, could also be considered for a place of honour when images from Balochistan are required. In the interests of preserving the truth, besides this picture the text should say that the Baloch people still ask why the millions spent on developing this weapon could not have been used to alleviate some of their misery, while from Chaghai itself vague reports still come in of the effects of radioactivity on livestock and humans. Any investigation into this has not happened; it has not been allowed to happen – with even those journalists attempting to look into accounts from the area swiftly scared off. This, of course, raises own suspicions.

14 apostates meet their 72. Definitely (more) green-on-(lesser) green post-Fridin sermon action.

two attackers were prevented from entering the complex while one managed to enter the Imambargah
belonging to the Shia sect
six to seven kilograms of high intensity explosives and four kilograms of pellets were used in the blast


What's interesting to note is that the cops are now such experts on these soosai bombers that they can tell within minutes the size, type and model number of the explosives used down to the last kilogram. Amazing!

As an aside, who is ruling TSP today ? Is it the SC or the Parliament or the PA ?



SSridhar Ji :

Shifty Ifty is – most probably – following the TSP Army’s direction and discrediting the Parliament in the Collection of Taxes in General and GST in Particular as also Energy etc.

In one instance Shifty is asking the people why they are looking up to the Parliament and in another he wants the Federal Government to impose Taxes only after having them Approved and Passed by the Parliament. This is when the “Sucker Punch” comes in i.e. when Parliament approves a “Tax” Shifty questions the people looking up to the Parliament as well as having Parliament or the "Taxing" Authority justify the Tax Increases before the Supreme Court!

I refer you to the following :

Increase in sales tax led to bigger food price hike : Chief justice

He further questioned why would people look up to the parliament if the rulers kept imposing taxes on them.


SC reserves verdict in GST case

Responding to the AG’s plea, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry observed that the federal government should collect increased rates of taxes but only after getting its decision approved from the parliament through an act.

The chief justice said the Ogra would have to justify before the court the collection of 9% tax besides 16% GST.


Thus Parliament and the Executive are at the mercy of Shifty Ifty who can have only one Constituency – TSP Army.

Thus :

1. No comprehensive Tax Reforms

2. The Final Authority to Rule is the TSP Army via "Shifty Ifty"

Q.E.D.

An important book questions Pakistan's view of the world, and the state that shapes it

How much of the following can be actually true - jihadis threatening TSPA chiefs?
Khan knew that the ISI's support of the "charismatic" mujahideen was based not on any strategic analyses, but on "reverse indoctrination", something that haunts the GHQ in Rawalpindi, where the army chief may at times be scared of his own officers. Soon, the army chiefs of Pakistan became convinced that if they tried to get rid of the non-state actors-turned terrorists they could get killed.


Imagine mard-e-momin TSPA Army chief bullied by all and sundry jihadis in uniform. The TSPA Army chief has no shame to face and eat the humiliation!

mushy is saying that he was not in control of the jihadis and he was not really in control of his core army - explains why the NLI et all were fed into the meat grinder
