It will no longer be a swearing in ceremony of an Indian PM. It will be Pakistan-India equal==equal with press conferences, empty gestures, grandstanding and yes the usual meeting of JK separatists to assure them 400% support.

AnujanJi,

I agree, not a good start by ModiJi. But in fairness to him, he invited the puke as part of a SAARC guest list. Now the DDM, and western hypocrites will dwell on what you say above. I have a question. Does ModiJi have to allow the Hurriyat rats to meet the puke? He can simply that meeting or put them under house arrest or something.

So now that Modi has come, not only does its prove that India has its own Hindu Taliban, but Indian skies are now going to be filled with drones - just like Pakhanastan:

Cannot say I agree. An unwise move.

“No show” of a SAARC leader will be spun as message to India of foreign discomfort for electing Modi and “no show” even in the absence of malice is likely given the short notice. Meanwhile this will be interpreted by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan as weakness especially given events on the LoC. This is a time for Pit Bulls not Labrador Retrivers with a “sensitive” side as witnessed yesterday at Parliament’s Central Hall. Let me hope this is a one time aberration and that the Nation is not saddled with a 56 inch chested metrosexual:

Pakistan again violates ceasefire along LoC in Poonch


Dredging up some history.

What exactly has changed since May 2013 in terms of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan addressing India’s concern on terrorism sponsored there to stoke India making nice to the Islamic Republic?

Then our sans 56 inch chest Prime Minister Manmohan Singh turned down the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s invitation to attend the induction of Nawaz Sharif as the Islamic Republics PM. Now we have a situation where an invitation to Nawaz Sharif to attend such an induction of an Indian PM has been tendered by our 56 inch chested to be PM :roll: :

Nawaz Sharif ’very happy’ if Manmohan Singh attends Pakistan inauguration

But things got worse after the Mumbai attacks. I watched helplessly with other students as the television vacillated from showing the Taj in flames to mindlessly showing the commandos moving in to fight the militants


Why can't Yindoos just do their commando operations secretly, hain? What's the need to show them on TV just because some Pakistani boys went on shooting people for 3 days?

Nawaz Sharif mulls attending Modi's swearing-in ceremony
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is still considering to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi and a final decision will be taken by the evening after consultations with the civil and military leaders, officials said on Thursday.

This, in Mumbai, is termed as “Maakad mantos..” i.e.”Bundar Bolay…”

Badmaash has been begging MMS to visit the Land of the Pure and the Home of the Terrorists so that Badmash will be able to pay a return visit to India.

Now that Modi has invited him Badmaash has started to “Mull”!

Typical Crapistani!

If ModiJi's thinking is that TSP is just one of India's neighbors that India would like to have a decent relationship with, no harm in inviting the puke. He must of course guard against DDM and western media hijacking the whole thing and making it into an India TSP equal equal circus. TSP of course would want just that, and they will throw a curve ball to perpetuate that.

I would consider it a master stroke only of the whole thing is dour, ModiJi welcomes all SAARC guests, talks about economic cooperation & such, routine peaceful co-existence, and thats the end of it. TSP & US of course will be mighty pissed if thats the outcome. They may even say "Hindu nationalist" Modi did not do more, and hence this visit will lead to renewed tensions between India & TSP, hoping that TSP will do what they expect to disorient Modi.

Several years ago, the SAJA jokers in NYC gave an award to a WSJ honcho for covering Kargil. In his acceptance speech, the condescending twit did not even bother to hide his contempt when he said "South Asia" was not his choice destination, but when "South Asia heated up", he saw an opportunity (for an award, recognition etc), and launched into his India TSP equal equal, "extremists on both sides" crap. So you see for the goras, TSP provocation, and Indian crying is lotsa entertainment. A dour, sedate business as usual proceedings are of no interest to these colonial racists.

There is no harm in an invitation right at the beginning by a completely different dispensation. Nothing substantial is going to be discussed or decided during this time. This is entirely a courtesy invitation by the largest member of the SAARC which towers over all the other members of SAARC put together. Modi must establish a personal contact with all these leaders. That is the way diplomacy needs to be conducted. Modi can neither speak Punjabi nor can he be nostalgic about his place of birth in Pakistan. Let us hold our horses.

Wonder pe thunder.

Never fear. I am here. Back from a holiday in Shillong - reading Jagan garus's book on the flight

I think Modi's invitation to badmash was a neat counterstroke.

badmash played the ball into Modis court by saying "Come to shiland. Look how hospitable I am"

Modi said "Hey come for my coronation, it's tomorrow. You will be an honoured guest"

Now if Badmash does not come he owes Modi one. If he comes - Modi has taken the first step..

It might even be a bit deeper than that. As I see it, there have been many reports of the Pak army/ISI wanting to "test" Modi shortly. Modi is setting up a "deja vu" situation with (a) BJP/NDA government, (b) Nawaz Sharif and (c) "meeting for peace onlee" - what happened the last time Pakistan staged an incident in that situation? Now, if the Pak/ISI go ahead with an incident, the international relation repercussions will be even more disastrous for them than the Kargil misadventure.

Pakistan army launches ground offensive in North Waziristan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani forces on Thursday launched their first major offensive in years against Taliban militants near the Afghan border after several rounds of government-led talks aimed at ending an insurgency in the remote region failed.The offensive targeted the Matchis Camp near the capital of North Waziristan, an area set up to house Afghan refugees but now a hub for local and foreign militants, Siraj Ahmed, the highest government official in the region, told Reuters by telephone.Residents said helicopter gunships flattened houses and compounds in Matchis Camp while ground forces surrounded the area. Pakistani-made surveillance drones also hovered over the area all morning, the first time the country has launched unmanned aircraft.Disagreements over how to handle the Taliban insurgency has soured relations between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan´s powerful army, which has been pushing for a major military offensive.
Speculation that the army might launch an offensive in the frontier tribal areas has been building as the government´s attempts to engage the Pakistani Taliban in peace talks have floundered in recent months.There has also been a surge in attacks on military outposts recently."We announced yesterday that people should leave the area," Ahmed said. "This morning, tanks moved in and helicopter ships began demolishing houses in the Matchis camp area."The Pakistan government signed an unofficial non-aggression pact with pro-government militants in the area in 2007 and there has been no ground offensive in the area since.In the last few months, the army has intermittently used aircraft to target militant hideouts, and on Wednesday Pakistani fighter jets bombed suspected militant hideouts in North Waziristan, killing dozens of people.On Wednesday, an officer of the Pakistan army was killed in a gun battle with Taliban militants in the Mir Ali area of the tribal belt, the army said.The military´s media wing could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday´s ground offensive but intelligence and government officials said troops were moving from three directions and some clashes had erupted with Taliban."The offensive could be the army´s toughest test in years," a senior military official said.Foreign militants from various places including Central Asia have long been known to be based in the region.Pakistani authorities imposed a curfew in the area on Tuesday and residents said many people had fled their homes anticipating shelling and raids by helicopter gunships.Hafiz Gul Bahadur, a powerful militant leader in Pakistan´s North Waziristan border region, criticised the offensive and told Reuters the council of militant groups he heads was meeting to decide to suspend the 2007 peace deal.Bahadur is known to have links with notorious militant groups in tribal North Waziristan, including the Haqqani network, the most high-profile threat to U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

ISLAMABAD: At least 60 militants were killed today in precision bombing by air force jets on Taliban targets in Pakistan's restive tribal region on the Afghan border, military officials said.

2. Army major among five soldiers killed in fresh NW clashes
MIRANSHAH: After the military had killed nearly sixty fighters in North Waziristan on Wednesday, fresh clashes in the afternoon left at least five security personnel dead and injured seven others.

It is because the purer there have been waging a Jihad in Xinxiang. Taller than mountain friends have leaned upon the army for hire to kill their own.

But by doing that they are endangering their peace treaty with Hafiz Gul Bahadur who has been a sarkari taliban so far. Maybe he will see the light and join his brethren in TTP to bring Sharia all over Pakistan.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/23/world ... -area.html

In a statement, the Pakistani military described Thursday’s assault on Matches Camp — named for a derelict match factory in the area — as a response to attacks on army installations in Miram Shah a day earlier.

But several officials said the assaults also targeted ethnic Uighur fighters allied with the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, a Chinese Islamist separatist group whose presence in Pakistan has long been the cause of Chinese government complaints.

On Thursday, at least 31 people were killed and 94 injured in explosions at a market in Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang region of western China, in what Beijing termed a “terrorist attack.” There was no claim of responsibility, but the Chinese authorities have blamed the East Turkestan group for similar attacks.

The Uighur fighters, who are dotted across militant havens in Waziristan, are an embarrassment to Mr. Sharif, who sees China as a crucial economic and military partner for Pakistan. On Thursday his brother Shahbaz Sharif, the chief minister of Punjab Province, signed an agreement with Chinese officials in Shanghai for the construction of a commuter train line in Lahore.

Jo Lahore mein gandu.....

New York City prosecutors said a 75-year-old man beat his wife to death because she served him lentils for dinner instead of the goat he was craving.
Noor Hussein, who is a native of Pakistan, is on trial in Brooklyn for murder in the death of his 66-year-old wife, Nazar Hussein, in 2011. Prosecutors said in opening statements Wednesday that Hussein was so outraged over the prospect of eating lentils that he pummeled his wife until she was a "bloody mess."

Oh man...

"His intentions were to kill his wife," Assistant District Attorney Sabeeha Madni said in court. "This was not a man who was trying to discipline his wife."

Gunmen armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades attacked the Indian Consulate in western Afghanistan's Herat province Friday, an assault that injured no diplomatic staff, police said.

The three gunmen opened fire on the consulate from a nearby home, provincial police chief Abdul Sami Qatra said. Police killed two of the three gunmen, though one continued to fire on security forces trying to secure the area, Qatra said.

^Certainly, a joint operation between ISI, Haqqani and possibly LeT. Same as before. Something was expected and it has happened in Herat. Probably, Kabul is under a great deal of control. Common sense says that we should expect more within India itself.

The intention is to put pressure on Namo. Essentially Bakis/ISI are happy at not talking to Namo. So now Namo will look a wee bit weak that he is inviting the PM of country that supports terrorism and rcently attacked the Indian consulate at Herat. Already the Shiv Sena types have expressed their displeasure. The idea is to weaken Namo strategically. Now that Namo has given the invite it will be difficult to retract it.

^Don't these terrorist plans take a long time to implement? In that case this was supposed to happen anyway.

If not, they continuously have some people on the verge of fructifying an attack, just waiting for the order at any time. Would not that be contrary to the known working pattern of a terrorist cell, which seeks to keep secrecy for as long as possible. How would it be possible to keep things just behind the final step and maintain secrecy?

I am finding it difficult that they managed to get a terrorist attack done in a couple of days, its just too efficient for the porkis.

I would like to create a slightly different image of Pakistanis and their machinations.

When we speak of the Paki army, the ISI and the shitlander government as a coordinated scheming body that carries out spectacular planned attacks against India, I believe that we are making a mistake by which we compare real life to a spy story. In spy stories, the "good party" is often a country with extremely alert and well funded defence forces, a very active intelligence set up and most things that are needed for robust security. So in that spy story, the bad guy is is exceedingly clever. Diabolical and brilliant, and able to break through the layered defences of that "good guys" being attacked. We see this model in innumerable movies and books and tend to think that the Pakistan-India model works on this plane.

There could be other models

1. Well protected good guys who are fending off most attacks, causing the bad guys to get increasingly frustrated and attack weaker and weaker and less protected targets out of spite. Many Pakistani attacks fall into this category

2. Good guys have obvious weak spots - like "trusting" Pakistanis. I have read many articles after the 1965 and 1971 wars where it is taken as a "given" that India and Pakistan will not deliberately attack each others civilian areas. This is a silly assumption to make. Indians lack sufficient paranoia about Pakistan and tend to believe that shitlanders will behave like decent people.

There is a fundamental problem in getting "decent people" to see the world like "indecent people" because decent people do not think that way. So it is essential to point out to Indians that no assumptions about Pakistani decency can be made. If they have an opportunity to shake your hand and then rape your sister, the Pakistani will readily do that. Sometimes Indian entities are too stupid for words. We fall for rhetorical farts like "trust deficit". There is no trust deficit with Pakistan. There is too much trust. A trust deficit needs to develop for increased security.

The next time I hear the words "trust deficit" between India and Pakistan I am going to puke.

I would actually venture that atleast Indian armed forces do not make the assumption that Pakistan will not attack civilian areas.

It is that attacking civilian areas does not give immediate dividends. In short protracted wars, attacking civilian areas is infact counter productive. It leads to dissipation of attack, giving time for defender. In 1948, kashmir valley was saved only because the pakistan army started attacking civilians instead of a straight drive to srinagar and consolidate there. This gave time for Indian army to regroup at srinagar and repulse the attack.

There is a reason why India signed the non-attack on nuclear sites deal with Pakistan. It is another form of NFU. There is a reason why there is a protective cover around jamnagar refinery. The karachi fires of 1971 was technically India attacking civilian infrastructure just as Pakistan's 1965 dwarka attack was.

It is not impossible. There are always sleeper terrorist cells who can be activated upon a trigger. The targets are chosen well in advance and constantly surveilled but not attacked until the trigger happens. Secondly, Herat has been under threat for some time duw to internecine feuds. The uncrowned Emir of the city, Ismail Khan, has been steadily losing his clout and several warlords are vying o take up his Emirship. Had it been those days, we could have certainly said that nothing would have happened in Herat without Ismail Khan's approval. Today, there is an amorphous web of warlords who are controlling this city. The Herat situation is moving much like the post 1989 situation around Kabul..

Armed forces have to work under different constraints, but there are many examples where the Indian armed forces have deliberately called off attacks because of the danger of hitting civilians. But because Pakistani and Indian armed forces originally arose from the same stock in 1947 there has been an assumption that the Pakistani armed forces will show a reciprocal hesitation towards attacking civilians. That does not mean that the Indian armed forces will not endeavour to protect civilians, but it is important to keep our eyes open and acknowledge the obvious.

The Pakistani armed forces have a policy of hitting Indian civilians by using "irregular" non state actors, after which they say "tut tut, Pakistanis would never do that. Muslims would never do that. The army would never do that. We both suffer from terrorism"

This fact leads to the following propositions

1. We (Indians) need to accept that Indian civilians are part and parcel of the target that the Pakistani armed forces have for killing and mayhem. It means dismissal of Paki protestations of innocence and squarely putting the blame on Pakistan.
2. If we accept the above, what can we do about it?

So what can we do about it? (I suspect that such a question would be the start of a PhD thesis - but what the heck?)

Brave ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police) personnel and Afghan soldiers rebut attackers. All are safe
The Indian Embassy in Kabul was attacked twice in 2008 and 2009 that left 75 people dead

By the way,

A little-known Islamist militant group with ties to al-Qaeda has issued a warning to India, just days after Narendra Modi, whom some see as anti-Muslim, won a landslide election. Many people label Modi a Hindu nationalist and accuse him of doing little to stop (and possibly even encouraging) the 2002 riots in Gujarat, in which hundreds of Muslim civilians were killed. In its video, the group, called Ansar-ut-Tawheed fi Bilaad Hind (Brotherhood for Monotheism in the land of Hind), repeatedly mentions the Gujarat massacre and warns Indians to expect new attacks in retaliation.

And as we already know, Modi is not the type of leader to back down or turn the other cheek when he feels threatened.

Meanwhile, back at the simian section of the third world zoo called bakistan...Pakistan's religious body endorses underage marriage

In a retrogressive step, a religious body in Pakistan has declared girls as young as nine years old eligible to be married "if the signs of puberty were visible", a media report said today.
Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) chairman Maulana Mohammad Khan Sheerani of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) said after a meeting yesterday that media and 'some other segments of society' were not taking the council's decisions seriously.
He said that section 6 of the law, which required men to seek permission from their wives before entering into another marriage, was not in accordance with Islamic principles.

Twitter blocked upon requests

The micro-blogging website, Twitter, has honoured five requests put forth by an official from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to block tweets that he regarded as blasphemous
Twitter honoured all requests which called for the blocking of content from drawings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), photographs of burning copies of the Holy Quran and messages from a handful of anti-Islam bloggers as well as an American p0rn star who now attends Duke University, the NYT report said.
The NYT report moreover said that it was the first time that the social network had agreed to block content.

Here's one for the books. The government’s ‘martial’ security plan

an apprehensive PML-N government has decided to use both the security forces and the police on high alert to maintain peace in the capital as well as other parts of the country
It appears as if the government has decided to put the option of talks on hold
He said under a strategy chalked out in consultation with the police, troops may be deployed in the city for patrolling with the police.


I guess, this is one acceptable way to bring in "martial" law through the back door, and have cheering crowds lined up along the main avenues in slummabad.

That translation for 'Ansar-ut-Tawheed fi Bilaad Hind (Brotherhood for Monotheism in the land of Hind)' is wrong. It is "Helpers for Monotheism in the land of Hind". The LeT are helpers in this. The name somehow suggests to me that it involves members of 'Project Karachi", Indian Mujahideen and LeT. Of course, ISI is also involved along with an Afghan warlord either directly or through Haqqani.

five to ten years back I had read a lot of TFTA news paper articles on how India was going down with AIDS and how allah's scheme of khatna had prevented martial race from being bogged down with the disease. How every thing was under control and rakait mards could enjoy the pleasure without any fear.

Now I see this shalwar shivering article :shock: :shock:

I was told I was being deported but not that I had AIDS

After the polio vaccination restrictions placed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on Pakistan, the country is likely to face another restriction in the future. This could be due to an increasing numbers of HIV positive patients in the country. The main reason behind this increase is the growing number of Pakistanis who are being deported back to their country because they are HIV positive.


Thousands of Pakistanis are deported due to various reasons from different countries. However, Naveed was one of those many Pakistanis who were deported due to HIV. What is alarming is the fact that these deportees were not given any reason for their expulsion and as such, were unaware of the disease they had been inflicted with. According to a story published in the Express Tribune, over 380,000 Pakistanis have been deported from 54 countries since 2009. The average rate of deported Pakistanis, during the five-year-long period, amounts to 208 deportees per day, a report has stated.


The first time a case like this was reported (often referred to as ‘patient zero’) was in 1987, when a person hailing from Lahore was deported from the Gulf States for being HIV positive. ‘Patient zero’ was not the only victim to fall prey to this situation and since then hundreds of Pakistanis have been deported from different countries on the same grounds. The fact that these people are not informed of their disease is a major cause of concern, especially considering the virus they are carrying can be fatal. Experts believe that if this situation persists, another travel restriction will become inevitable for Pakistan.


“In the 27 years that have passed since patient zero, at least 5,800 Pakistanis have lost their lives as a result of the HIV virus and the total number of estimated cases range somewhere from 14,000 to 125,000 people, depending on who is willing enough to speak to you”.
