Much takleef in Al-Bakistan about the Big 3 proposal in ICC

Basically fund disbursal is being brought in line with fund generation. So if you dont play or generate revenue, you dont get to be a Paki and take revenue for your board. Which unsurprisingly is what the Pakis did. This is causing major takleef "Pakistan has lost $50 billion due to Big 3 restructuring and is a front line al-lie for playing cricket"

Pakistan cricket board chief has been axed.

http://dunyanews.tv/index.php/en/Cricket/211647-Najam-Sethi-appointed-as-PCB-chief-

Also ICC's Future Tours Program has been axed. This forced Major cricket playing nations to play other nations on a rotational basis. In its place a bilateral format has been introduced. So Pakis cannot force India or other teams to play them, and then propose Dubai or Mumbai as venue (because nobody wants to get shaheed playing a Cricket match) and then demand a venue fee (they actually did this :roll: ) that they lost because of lost ticket sales because the match was not played in Pakistan (they actually got this :shock: ). In addition a common fund has been set up to promote test cricket. So no "Compensate me for the money we lost due to tickets we didnt sell for matches we didnt play" gambit 8)

Pakistan news cycle is full of "Indian hegemony should be opposed!! Jeeeehaaarrrrddd!!!" news. Imran Khan has actually said that if he were managing cricket affairs, this would have never happened and India could have never done that.

Imran Khan blasts ICC's 'colonial' revamp
http://zeenews.india.com/sports/cricket ... 79507.html

"If I was the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) head I would have strongly objected the new colonial system," Khan told AFP.

"It became democratic until India, because of its big money influence and supported by Australia and England, made it back to square one."

"The revenue is coming but money should not be decisive and that`s why the quality is suffering which is disastrous."

Nightwatch:

Afghanistan-Pakistan: Speaking Sunday in Islamabad, Pakistani National Security and Foreign Policy Advisor Sartaj Aziz indicated a peace deal in Afghanistan is still within reach.

"The Taliban has already established its rule in some Afghan districts, but it is Pakistan's assessment the group will not be able to regain control of the whole country" after the foreign troops stage their planned withdrawal, Aziz said.

Aziz said there are about 350,000 Afghan security forces and the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance (note: Tajiks and Uzbeks who dominate northern Afghanistan have remained resolutely anti-Taliban and anti-Pashtun) also have grown stronger.

Aziz also said the Taliban would be looking for a way to end the conflict through the process of political reconciliation. He urged the Afghan government to show flexibility to come up with an offer that would encourage the Taliban to join the peace process.

Comment:
There is no way to discern from open source materials the truth of anything Aziz actually said. He implied a great deal and his scenario is most favorable to Pakistani interests in Afghanistan. Thus it is not a most likely outcome, but a most benign outcome, for Pakistan.

For the record, he purported to convey Pakistan's judgment about the future of Afghanistan after NATO and US forces depart. The message he wants the US to believe is that the Afghan government in Kabul will survive.

What he did not say, but implied, is that Pakistan expects that the Pashtun Taliban will fragment Afghanistan. They will not seize Kabul, but they will control the 12 Pashtun provinces in the south.

The second message is that Pakistan is content to have a Pashtun ally who controls only southern Afghanistan. Pakistan's requirement for strategic depth in its endless confrontation with India only requires control of Afghanistan south of the Hindu Kush.

Aziz' third message is that the fighting will not stop between Pashtuns and the northern tribes, but the Taliban will make gestures for national unity and reconciliation in order to gain control of Kabul.

Nawaz Sharif wants to declare Himself 'Amir ul Momineen' :- Asia Ishaac

Badmaash is on Track to be declared Amir ul Momineen so all this is expected. It is a pity that MMS has burried his head in the sand and refuses to face reality. One can only surmise that he is being coerced and compelled to kow-tow to the wishes of Badmaash.

partha wrote:Why did some Goans prefer to migrate to Pakistan when they could migrate to Portugal?


OT but...

After Goa was liberated, the Portuguese colonists sought safety in pakistan's waters by moving their warships to k'rachi harbor. Many mixed-race Goans followed them for fear of retribution. In those days k'rachi was considered "allied to the western cause" and a stepping stone to further migration to Australia and other western colonies. Goans with mixed Portuguese lineage or the ones allied with the Portuguese cause chose to migrate to Madagascar as well. India responded by creating a special seat (I think) for Goans with Portuguese ancestry in the Rajya Sabha to assuage them.

They (the Goans with mixed heritage) knew that they would never be treated as equals in Portugal. Some did go however. I bumped into one in South Portugal along the coast in the early 90's. She had a tiny shop selling Hindu icons and Rajasthani tapestry. Crying buckets. Ironic.

Excerpt from Bangladeshi newspaper Daily Star on the genocide committed by the uniformed jihadis of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

On June 13, 1971, The Sunday Times of London ran a 16 column (2-page) story, titled GENOCIDE, on the atrocities that were being carried out in Bangladesh, then East Pakistan. The world was stunned by this revelatory piece by a Pakistani journalist — Anthony Mascarenhas — invited by its military to see the operations conducted by them. Overcome by revulsion of what he saw, he published the following report after moving first his family, and then himself, to UK. The writer was Assistant Editor, Morning News, Karachi.

Given the ongoing War Crimes trial and the death penalty meted out to one of the perpetrators,and to mark the Intellectual Martyrs Day, we reprint The Sunday Times report to remind our readers of the genocide that was perpetrated on the people of Bangladesh. This report completely shattered the Pakistani propoganda effort and helped to turn world public opinion in favour of our Liberation War. This is Part One of a Three Part series. –Editor

Ayaz Amir- (described by many as a typical Pakistani gent- one who can be a fundamentalist while holding the gun and a liberal while he stares down the barrel.)
http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-9 ... -the-issue
Can the prime minister and his aides agree on an army withdrawal from Fata? They should have no problem because for the Punjabi mindset Fata already is a very distant proposition, if not a lost cause. The Punjabi industrial class, the cement and other mafias, have their eyes on easing border restrictions with India and increasing trade on that front. That’s where they see not only the profits but, to be fair to them, better economic prospects for the country. For these enterprising souls Fata and the Taliban are distractions.


Ayaz thinks he alone is wise, NS is better. He wants to pit the army against the Taliban, and lick the blood.

TSP President to visit China - Meena Menon, The Hindu
Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain will pay an official visit to China from February 18 to 20, an official statement said on Tuesday.

This is his first state visit abroad after assuming office and he will hold summit-level talks with President Xi Jinping. He will also have meetings with Premier Li Keqiang and Zhang Dejiang, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China.

Soon after the announcement of the historic Pakistan-China economic corridor, the two countries have started planning the implementation of infrastructure projects. This visit is a reiteration of Pakistan’s commitment to establish close ties with its long-standing strategic partner, the statement said.

During the President’s visit, the second meeting of the Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) of the Pakistan-China Economic Corridor will be held on February 18. Ahsan Iqbal, Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reform will lead the Pakistan delegation to attend the meeting. The JCC will finalise the implementation of mutually agreed projects of the Economic Corridor.

Economic cooperation between Pakistan and China has expanded significantly in recent years. Under a comprehensive framework Pakistan and China have bilateral economic cooperation in the form of Joint Economic Commission, Economic Cooperation Group, Joint Energy Working Group and a Joint Investment Committee, besides several other mechanisms. The volume of trade volume has crossed $ 12 billion, with Pakistan’s exports increasing by 48 per cent.

CERN team calls on Nawaz

Meanwhile Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said the Pakistan government would like to strengthen collaboration with the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, in future and was looking forward to becoming an associate member of the organisation.

Mr. Sharif told a four-member delegation of CERN which called on him that the engineering base and experience of high precision manufacturing :lol: enabled Pakistan to make a significant contribution to the CERN programme, a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said.

Mr. Sharif said the government was fully committed to enhancing Pakistan’s scientific exchange through cooperation with the international scientific community. Mr. Sharif had cancelled a scheduled visit to CERN in January.

Rs 65 cr heroin seized from Pak goods train
Tribune News Service

Amritsar, February 11
In a joint operation by Custom officials and the Railway Protection Force, an attempt to smuggle narcotics and live cartridges through Pakistan goods train was foiled at the Amritsar railway station today.

The officials seized 12.810 kg of heroin valued at around Rs 65 crore in the international market, 34 live cartridges and 150 gm of opium.

The contraband was concealed in the hosepipe of a wagon. Sources said the train arrived from Pakistan on February 7. It was loaded with export material the next day.

The train had reached the Attari station yesterday from where it was to leave for Pakistan at 8 am today. But the train could not leave on its scheduled time as two more wagons were to be attached to it. The train was sent back to Amritsar this morning. It was then some officials detected a wire hanging from the hosepipe. On pulling it, another pipe was noticed which contained the contraband, said VK Khosla, Deputy Commissioner, Customs.

"The credit goes to the vigilant anti-smuggling cargo staff of the Customs and the Railway Protection Force. The train is under strict surveillance," he said.

Cancelling visits by Indian Ministers to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a good thing but it would be an even better thing to cancel trade links with the Islamic Republic to prevent undesirable exports like Heroin, Ammunition, Arms, Terrorists, Forged Indian Currency Notes slipping into India with exports from the Islamic Republic not to mention the Polio virus because of trade related people to people contact and Terrorist financing by way of disguising that activity as a legitimate trade flow :

Pakistani Taliban threaten Kalash tribe, Ismailis in Chitral

So it begins. AoA!

The Paki Taliban have announced an “armed struggle” against an indigenous tribe and Ismaili Muslims...calling on Sunnis to support their cause in a video
But migration in recent decades has meant that Sunni Muslims are now the majority in the area, while the Kalash way of life has come under threat by the Taliban
The narrator warns the Kalash, who are thought to number only 3,500, to convert to Islam or face death.
By the grace of Allah, an increasing number of people from the Kalash tribe are embracing Islam


See, threats always work.

The list expands: Ismailis attacked

There's a list? If there is, it should be a very short one. "Everyone except ____ is wajib-ul-qatl".

Shias, Barelvis, Sufis and Deobandis not subscribing to the militant worldview have been killed individually and collectively. Last year, Dawoodi Bohras joined the list
And now, the Aga Khani Ismailis have become the latest Muslim group to be attacked


Were Ismailis considered true muslims? However, the solution seems to be very simple:

the authorities must take decisive action against violent non-state actors with sectarian and militant agendas

Taliban term Pakistan Army as their ‘frontline enemy’
Malsi Abb Lahore Chalsi Owrr pakistan Farr Siii

Islamabad- Despite the ongoing peace process, Taliban consider Pakistan army as their frontline enemy.“Our war is not restricted to Kayani or Pasha. Our frontline enemy is the Pakistan Army and its main characters. So if we get any opportunity to target them, we will take it” TTP’s freedom fighter ,spokesman Shahidullah Shahid told a local magazine.“We have carried out big attacks everywhere, from the tribal areas to Karachi. Our most effective activities have been in Punjab and Sindh. Whether it is GHQ, Kamra, PNS Mehran or foreigners in the northern areas, we have influence all over the country. If the talks fail and an operation is launched, we will have no regrets,” TTP’s spokesperson said in an interview.Shahid said TTP Chief & Upcoiming Amir ul Momeen ,Mullah Fazlullah would lead Pakistan as the first caliph after Shariah law is imposed in the country.He added they want the enforcement of Shariah in Pakistan; considering it the sole reason behind its creation.“We are fighting for Shariah, keeping in mind the people who can establish the government and run the system as a caliph. Amir ul Momeen ,Mullah Fazlullah is leading us and he possesses all the qualities to lead us as a nation,” he said.About the ongoing dialogue with the Pakistani government, he said both sides have agreed not to impose preconditions. He explained Tehreek-e-Taliban is at war with the government for two reasons, which are ties with the United States and the continuation of an un-Islamic democratic system. “We want the peace talks to succeed. Previous rounds failed because of the government’s non-serious attitude and foreign pressure. If these talks fail, the government will obviously try to launch a military operation. We have been tested before and we have passed such phases with success. Another military operation can’t harm the Tehreek-e-Taliban. Our network has expanded economically, militarily and politically” TTP spokesman said when asked about the expected military action.Shahid Ullah Shahid denied any statement regarding targeting Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif (Marking The Booty Before Ghazwa Khyber Banjab).

Water Water, All The Water, But Not A Drop For Poaqqiya

A future without water

Picture ( Haram In Islam)this, it’s 2050 and Pakistan is now a county without water. The glaciers of Himalaya have melted, leaving our verdant and picturesque rivers bare and dry. The mighty Indus, once irrigating an expansive fertile plain, has now turned into a desert, shrinking our agricultural base, resulting in mass displacement and migration. Our cities are dogged by not only chronic power shortages but also severe water scarcity, where people line up for hours to purchase imported flour, rice, vegetables and water.This may sound as an exaggerated account of our future but some statistics would manifest the likelihood of such a possibility. Asian Development Outlook 2013 describes our water challenge in these words, “Pakistan is one of the most water-stressed countries in the world, not far from being classified as “water scarce,” with less than 1,000 cubic metres per person per year. Water demand exceeds supply, which has caused maximum withdrawal from reservoirs. At present, Pakistan’s storage capacity is limited to a 30-day supply, well below the recommended 1,000 days for countries with a similar climate. “
As environmental changes takes place, glaciers of Himalayas melt, and population of our country soars to 256 million by 2030 and doubling by 2050, we would be experiencing enormous water stress in coming years. Above this, Indus Water Treaty (IWT) that has governed water relations between India and Pakistan for sixty years, is becoming a new bone of contention. India is constructing numerous dams on waters that feed Indus, raising serious concerns within Pakistan. This sentiment was voiced recently by Abid Sher Ali, Minister of State for Water and Power, who blamed India for creating a shortage of water in Pakistan by building dams.Indian government has brushed aside Pakistani fears, declaring them as baseless and unfounded, but Indian role in exacerbating our water problem has been aptly captured by the US Senate’s report “ Avoiding Water Wars.” Report criticises Indian water management practises and states,“ It is India’s water management of the Indus that merits scrutiny. With a population already exceeding 1.1 billion people and forecasts indicating continued growth to over 1.5 billion by 2035, India’s demand for water is rising at unprecedented rates. However, water management in India is extremely decentralised and virtually unregulated. This has led rapidly to diminishing available surface and groundwater.”
The report also questions India’s policy of damming Eastern rivers, “ To meet growing demand and cope with increasing electricity shortages, the [Indian] government has developed plans to expand power generation through the construction of multipurpose dams. India has 33 projects at various stages of completion on the rivers that affect this region.
While studies show that no single dam along the waters controlled by the Indus Waters Treaty will affect Pakistan’s access to water, the cumulative effect of these projects could give India the ability to store enough water to limit the supply to Pakistan at crucial moments in the growing season.

Though we may now cry wolf at India’s plan to dam Indus, but our previous rulers are responsible for making important concessions to India in IWT, a loophole now exploited by it, to divert the waters feeding river Indus. According to Article III of the treaty, “India shall be under an obligation to let flow all the waters of the Western Rivers [into Pakistan], and shall not permit any interference with these waters, except for the following uses... (a) Domestic Use; (b) Non-Consumptive Use; (c) Agricultural Use, and (d) Generation of hydro-electric power.”
The first casualty of this impending water scarcity will be our agriculture sector that employs nearly half of our population and constitute a quarter of our GDP. Eighty percent of our agriculture land is watered by one of world’s largest irrigation networks that draws most of its water from River Indus. Across Pakistan, hundreds of cities and thousands of small towns are driven by agricultural activity and our biggest industrial sectors, especially textiles, are related to it. Any disruption in agriculture would have deadly implications for our economic viability and national security.
To avert the collapse of our riverine system we need to adopt better water management techniques (a topic, we will discuss next week) and require better coordination with India. India must make sure that Pakistan gets its share of water agreed upon in IWT and its hydroelectric projects should not affect the flow of Eastern rivers. In addition, implementation of IWT should be made transparent by establishing monitoring centres across our rivers, with a purpose of collecting and sharing information, essential for better bilateral water management and coordination. ( Think Dams are Indian NSA)Between India and Pakistan, no bilateral issue is as vital as water sharing. It can be used to bring both the nations together to find a common solution, even acting as a spring board for addressing other contentious issues as Kashmir and Siachen. If we don’t improve water management practices and find a common ground with India on issue of water sharing, we may prepare ourselves for a long and harsh drought that may change our socioeconomic and political landscape forever, and might plunge [b]South Asia in an incessant water conflict.[/b]

Anand Sharma Cancels Pak Visit

At last, Anand Sharma realizes that GoI (and himself too) have been taken for a royal ride by TSP as usual.

Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma has cancelled his visit to Lahore and Islamabad scheduled this week as Pakistan has failed to deliver on a bilateral trade pact signed in New Delhi in January.

Mr. Sharma and Pakistan Trade Minister Khurram Dastagir Khan had agreed on 24x7-trade of all goods through Wagah-Attari border by mid-February. The pact also mentioned that Pakistan would have to dismantle the negative list of 1,209 items and bring down the sensitive list of items to 100 under the South Asia Free Trade Agreement over five years.

Mr. Sharma said on Wednesday that he will visit Pakistan only after Pakistan operationalises the trade-related decisions. “I don't want to land up there to find they have not moved forward on their commitments,” he said.

India has already reduced its sensitive list of items to 614. It agreed at the bilateral talks to further cut it to 100 in one year. Now, only 137 items can be traded through the border. If Pakistan eliminates the negative list, it would automatically lead to Non-Discriminatory Market Access for India. This is in lieu of the Most Favoured Nation status, a term Pakistan has said it is not in a position to use with regard to India.

Mr. Sharma was to inaugurate the “India Show” in Lahore on February 14. The show is being organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry in partnership with the Government of India, and with the support from the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Trade Development Authority of India.

Columnist Ayaz Amir: "There Will Have To Be A Redrawing Of Geographical Lines; The Durand Line [i.e. Afghan-Pakistan Border] Is Dead, And Even If Not, After A Taliban Settlement It Will Have Become Irrelevant"


As a successor to the Durand Line the new line will have to be along the Indus [which divides Pakistan and] which in any case is a permanent Afghan demand, no Afghan government accepting the British annexation of the Frontier or the Durand Line as the international boundary between Afghanistan and Pakistan. The advantages of this will be three-fold: the Taliban will have something to think about, Afghanistan will be happy, and Pakistan's Punjab-centric leadership will the readier be able to devote all energies to the uplift and progress of Punjab [in what would remain the non-Taliban Pakistan]…

"The Taliban not being overly given to paperwork, Pakistani citizens wishing to cross the Indus - say, to buy chappals [slippers] from Charsadda, gur [jaggery] from Mardan or naswar (snuff) from elsewhere - may not require any form of paper visas. But some kind of a toll, we can be reasonably certain, they will have to pay; the Taliban, as noted above, not believing in the concept of free lunches. Troops will have to vacate forward areas. This is a given, and without it there can be no agreement. From the seven tribal agencies all troops gone, FATA clearly coming under a new jurisdiction, that of the Islamic Emirate of North and South Pakhtunistan [comprising of both parts of Waziristan]."

That's an interesting point of view. NS might be taking a revenge against the army by pitting them against TTP! If army fights TTP, it will be a bloody war and if it doesn't it will risk being held responsible for losing territory to TTP. Nice situation and NS doesn't give a sh*t as along as Pakjab is safe and his sugar mills are running.

Or it could be that INC wants to pander to the Hindu vote bank in India (INC does this regularly i.e. entire term dole out freebies for minorities and come election time pander to the majority too) , it's election time here so pappi jhappi with TSP will be put on hold for sometime .
