Pure Halal Link from The Fartress of Deen

ISLAMABAD: More than 40 million people in Pakistan do not have access to a toilet, forcing them to defecate in the open, which in turn is a major contributor to stunting in the country, a top Unicef official said.“There are 41 million people who do not have access to a toilet in Pakistan and as a result they are defecating in the open. And open defecation has significant health and nutritional consequences,” said Geeta Rao Gupta, deputy executive director at Unicef.“Open defecation is a major contributor to stunting and that's why we've got to do all we can to stop it,” she said. The problem can spread disease and lead to intestinal infections, which can contribute to stunting in young children, she said.Stunting means children don't grow as tall as they would otherwise, and it can also affect a child's brain development. Stunted children are more at risk of disease, don't do as well in school and stunted mothers can also give birth to stunted children.Pakistan is the third-largest country when it comes to people going to the bathroom in the open, behind India and Indonesia.The Pakistan Approach to Total Sanitation (PATS) is a sanitation program adapted from the Community Approach to Total Sanitation by Unicef in Pakistan. PATS aims to create open defecation free (ODF) villages in Pakistan by making the practice of saying no to open defecation a social norm.However, the situation for sanitation is still bleak: approximately 43 million Pakistanis still defecate in the open, and our Millennium Development Goal (MDG 7) of increasing access to sanitation may not be met until 2027.
‘52pc of Pakistanis combat unsanitary conditions’
The public health implications are severe. Some three million Pakistanis face infections from waterborne diseases every year. Children are especially affected by illnesses such as diarrhoea, often caused by unsafe water and inadequate sanitation, which kills more under-fives around the world than AIDS, malaria and measles combined.There was a culture of subsidy in calamity-hit areas. Local authorities absolved themselves of responsibility for water and sanitation systems and instead looked to external donors. But many private water service providers refuse to cover operation and maintenance costs due to low tariffs and poor profitability.There is a lack of policy on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in Pakistan ─ and where it exists, it tends to be poorly informed and often implemented without consulting local people.National and provincial politicians have allocated funds to water and sanitation but in Fata, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, rural Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan, open defecation is practised widely and using a toilet in the home is considered to be taboo. ( Sunnah ?)The solution is about more than funding. As Jan Eliasson, UN deputy secretary general, said last year, we must dismantle taboos: As was the case for the word `toilets` a few years ago, it is time to incorporate `open defecation` in the political language and in diplomatic discourse.Building more toilets is also vital for empowering women and girls and keeping them in school, Gupta said. If women have to walk long distances to find a private place to relieve themselves, they are more vulnerable and exposed to attack. They're also less likely to go to school if there are no toilets. “Having toilets is a big advantage to girls,” she said.

Didn't the jihadis got one country already to wreck it around and make it International Terror center? In fact all supporters, backers, participants and leaders of jihadi mob already got Terroristan to hallucinate about, and should not be allowed to set their foot in India and further any goals. They got one country, they better make it secular and free of violence first, and within a deadline.

In fact, there was another whine from the likes of Sartaz Ashitz types (per few message ago on BRF), that time about how talks are not progressing! So who is in charge in Pakistan to come out whining when talks are not progressing - and thereby reveal who is in charge!

It is one thing to complain when talk are progressing and jihadi army is not getting its due, it is quite another when talks are not progressing and come out whining and showing who is in charge.

Modi due in 2016, Xi’s visit being scheduled
Sharam Magar Paki Ko Aati Nahi

ISLAMABAD: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to visit Pakistan next year to attend the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) summit, whereas dates for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit are being worked out.

Talking to reporters after attending a two-day conference at the 6th Think Tank Forum of Islamic Countries that concluded on Sunday, Sartaj Aziz, the prime minister’s adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs, said: “Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will certainly visit Pakistan next year.”About Pak-India relations, Mr Aziz said that the recent foreign secretaries’ meeting had paved the way for formal talks between the two sides, adding: “All matters of common interest will be included in the talks, whenever they are started.”Last year, India suspended talks with Pakistan slated for August after a Pakistani envoy met Kashmiri leaders in New Delhi.Indian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar visited Pakistan last week as part of a trip to Saarc member states, and the visit has raised hopes for the resumption of bilateral talks.The adviser said that although the Indian foreign secretary’s visit was on a Saarc agenda, both sides had used the opportunity to discuss bilateral issues.“Our foreign secretary would visit India whenever they invite us,” he said, adding that there should be progress and both sides should explore ways to build on confidence-building measures.
The adviser said that the then Indian prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee visited Pakistan in Feb 1999, but soon after, the Kargil war between the two countries and the military takeover in Pakistan spoiled all efforts to create better bilateral ties.Mr Aziz termed the lack of trust between Pakistan and India a major issue and said there would be progress on other issues if trust was gradually restored.Talking about President Xi’s visit to Pakistan, he said that dates for the trip were being worked out. “The Chinese president will not visit Pakistan on March 23,” he said.In September last year, the Chinese president postponed his trip to Pakistan due to “security reasons” at a time when protesters were camped outside the Parliament House.

They arent capable of getting anything back, but a decent salvage crew certainly could. One wonders if anything that landed in the arabian sea was then taken usama-style by someone else and examined. Certainly could give an idea of whether there is any real payload capability in these rockets.

Considering there was no Notam looks this landed somewhere close to the Pakistani coast. The launch also seems from southern Pakistan, dry area South Punjab, Sindh or Baluchistan, so this 2750KM missile flew a depressed trajectory not greater 600KM.

PS> International Flight and shipping paths run less than 200KM from the Pakistani coast so this was within that zone.

Looks exactly like Shaheen 2, no details regarding weight etc. Seems like upgraded version of M-9 again flown for the 673Km as detected by Indian AABM radars like in 2012.

Being coy doesn’t change the reality of modern Pakistan — a corrupt, politically savage and physically broken society : Pakistan wilfully became an Islamic Republic and allowed religious bigotry to overwhelm its population:

Robert Fisk In the Independent

Excerpt:

…………………………. Pakistan itself is a deeply corrupt, politically savage and physically broken society, founded – like other dangerous nations – on the basis of religion, carved out, in Pakistan’s case, as a homeland for India’s Muslims. It was created as well over seven million Indian Muslims crossed the British partition frontier in one of the greatest migrations of souls in history. So ill-managed was this venture that within three decades, Pakistan was “re-partitioned” by the loss of West Bengal in a war that witnessed frightful atrocities by soldiers of the Pakistani army.

Now, I’m one of the few Brits I know who likes Pakistan. Although its history, its society, its attempts at democracy, its films – even its food – are recognisably Indian, its people have maintained their dignity. Their love of books, their admiration for the rule of law (the courage of the country’s lawyers is, alas, in inverse proportion to their achievements) and their sense of national pride in education, make Pakistan a wonderful country for any visitor – if the traveller can avoid being kidnapped, raped, murdered or imprisoned. For Pakistan wilfully became an “Islamic Republic” and allowed the worst perversions of religious bigotry to overwhelm its population. Child marriage, “honour” crimes against women, violent patriarchy, mass slaughter of religious minorities, political assassination and corruption – from the shoe-shine boy to the presidency – have blighted the lives of all 182 million of its people……………………….

Taseer murder case: IHC upholds Mumtaz Qadri's death sentence


March 9, 2015

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) upheld Mumtaz Qadri’s death sentence on Monday under Section-302 of the Pakistan Penal Code for killing former Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer, but struck out a terrorism conviction, making it unlikely he will be executed soon.

The Islamabad High Court dismissed an appeal against the death sentence by Mumtaz Qadri, a former police bodyguard who shot dead Punjab governor Salman Taseer in Islamabad in 2011. However, declared Qadri’s death sentence under the Anti Terrorism Act null and void.

Qadri admitted shooting Taseer, saying he objected to the politician’s calls to reform Pakistan’s strict blasphemy laws which can carry the death penalty.

Judges Noorul Haq Qureshi and Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui dismissed the appeal over the murder charge.

But they also set aside Qadri’s conviction on terrorism charges, which means it is highly unlikely he will be sent to the gallows any time soon.

An anti-terrorism court handed down double death sentences for murder and terrorism to Qadri in late 2011. However, the self-confessed killer of the former governor Punjab had filed an appeal in the court against his conviction which the IHC dismissed.

arun Ji :

I remember reading somewhere that the Cwapistanis were told not to have intercourse with the Hurriyat if the Cwapistanis want to talk to India wrt Kashmir i.e. either us or the Hurriyat.

since the Cwapistanis are talking to the Hurriyat on Kashmir so India now does not have to have any discussions with Cwapistan on Kashmir.

Riyadh rendezvous: Pakistan in a fix over Saudi request for help against IS

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad is in a fix over whether to accept Riyadh’s request for support to preempt possible military incursions into Saudi Arabia by the Islamic State (IS), the ultra-extremist group which has made significant gains in both Iraq and Syria.
The issue was a key item on the agenda during Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia, where he received an unprecedented welcome from newly crowned King Salman bin Abdulaziz, a senior government official told The Express Tribune on condition of anonymity.
Premier Nawaz visited the oil-rich kingdom last week on the special invitation of the Saudi monarch, who is believed to be looking up to his closest allies, including Turkey, Egypt and Pakistan, to boost security at Saudi border in a bid to ward off the IS threat.
According to a statement issued by Pakistan’s Foreign Office following talks between the prime minister and the Saudi king, the two leaders shared similar views on all important issues, including the need to combat terrorism.
The senior official confirmed that the two leaders discussed increased security cooperation between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Although he declined to go into detail, it is believed that Riyadh wants Islamabad to send troops to help it in the fight against IS.
In return, the new Saudi monarch has offered Islamabad an economic package, which includes supply of oil on deferred payment, said another official familiar with the discussion.
So far, Prime Minister Nawaz has not given Saudi Arabia any firm assurance over the request. The government is cautious about getting embroiled in any new controversy which could have far-reaching implications for Pakistan.
Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries as well as the United States formed a coalition last September against IS. But Pakistan attempted to distance itself from any such coalition fearing negative fallout.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry recently informed the Senate panel on foreign affairs that Pakistan would not become part of any international coalition against IS. “It [Pakistan] should only support multilateral action against IS under the UN Security Council resolution under Chapter VII of the UN Charter,” the top diplomat told the committee.
The policy appears to suggest that Pakistan intends to tread a careful path over the IS issue. The cautious approach is attributed to the fact that joining the fight against IS would create more trouble for Pakistan, which is already preoccupied with fighting its own war against several militant groups.
Another factor is that because of Iran, the current government, despite having close ties with the Saudi royal family, does not want to be seen as too much aligned with Saudi Arabia.
The official pointed out that this changing regional and international situation is certainly throwing new challenges for the country on foreign policy issues.

There were some reports last year that Saudi Arabia had purchased these missiles. Perhaps it was a joint purchase deal, or maybe the Saudis funded the acquisition for the Pakistanis.

Also, isn't the DF-15/M-9 single-staged? Whereas the Shaheen-2 is a two-stage missile (like the DF-21)?

At least visually, the Shaheen-2 and Shaheen-3 seem to be very similar if not the same. The Pakistanis often overstate the range, and have in the past had new designations for virtually the same missile (perhaps with increased range due to reduced payload, or with minor changes). So this might be such a case, with the Shaheen-3 being a refinement of the Shaheen-2 with either small modifications, or with increased range due to reduced payload.

Actually, if the elephant liked the sugercane then it wouldnt mind the odd ant and eat the sugarcane anyway.

The solution is to support Baluchistan, and Balwaristan, and every other stan. But only on their individual merit.

Otherwise this is not a pachyderm we are talking about, but a cow that turns direction at the slightest frown from a turd.

Actually if we want to meet we should meet POK folks just to rub in the fact that POK is part of India. It would annoy the Bakis like hell but is inline with our current position and parliamentary resolutions.

What we do with other stans let it remain the way it is.

Pakis would not be as tolerant of POK leaders meeting Indian officials. Soon after they would be hastened to meet their 72. So India needs to start overt and covert support to POK elements and see how it goes. Another thing NaMo should expedite giving citizenship to Hindu/Sikh refugees from POK as well as Pakistan. Put it in media limelight as much as possible.

Of all the two nation theories within Pakistan, the one which seems to be causing immense khujli to the fauji establishment is the Pakhtoonistan Liberation Movement followed by the Balochistan Libertion Movement.

The shaheen solid fuelled missles are manufactured and launched from the Kala Chitta site west of Islamabad, close to Attock.
Their Liquid fuelled missiles are made next to KRL, Kahuta. These are launched from the Maksood Test Range, near Jhelum.
Their Babur cruise missile has a launch site west of karachi in the Sonmiani testing range in coastal baluchistan.

The Pakistani establishment has been delivered a massive series of thappads from the Modi GOI.
Let the poor souls get some vicarious pleasure by meeting Geelani. It is a useless meet anyways.

PDP and BJP are busy in the valley, politiking. Geelani is increasingly marginalized within the hurriyat itself. Poor guy has to do something to boost himself. Mirwaiz sidestepped the meet-the-paki-ambassador issue very cleverly by stating that because India takes offense, they'll not meet the pakis.

This is a face saving attempt by Pakistan more than anything else, it must be eliciting some 'I told u so' smiles in the intel apparatus in dilli.

I should prefer India demanding meeting with disgruntled elements in GB. Pakistan may say Balochistan is not a piece of contention between the two countries and in fact use it as a proof that India is helping the BLA. OTOH, GB is ours, illegally occupied by Pakistan and there are elements there who have issues with Pakistan.

Considering there was no Notam looks this landed somewhere close to the Pakistani coast. The launch also seems from southern Pakistan, dry area South Punjab, Sindh or Baluchistan, so this 2750KM missile flew a depressed trajectory not greater 600KM.

PS> International Flight and shipping paths run less than 200KM from the Pakistani coast so this was within that zone.

Looks exactly like Shaheen 2, no details regarding weight etc. Seems like upgraded version of M-9 again flown for the 673Km as detected by Indian AABM radars like in 2012.

Picked this NOTAM off the Hydrobharat website (Clicky) run by the Indian navy.

Can anyone correlate this to the Shaheen-III test flightpath?
