Pakistan on Monday strongly condemned the attack on the building of Wolesi Jirga (lower house of parliament) in Kabul.

In a statement, Foreign Office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said: “We commend the role of Afghan security forces in effectively countering this act of terrorism.”

“Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. We reaffirm our resolve to fight terrorism in close coordination with Afghanistan. Pakistan stands with their Afghan brothers in the common struggle against terrorism,” he added.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Afghan Parliament.

National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering, Faisalabad, under Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, flooded the market with 40,000 kilograms of basic Bt cotton seed that it had made from technology stolen from multinational GM seed producing company

Everything is stolen, not just the centrifuges.

Before pilfering the technology, the NIBGE Faisalabad should have ensured ( see below)
But critics allege that the GM seed was brought to Pakistan for research and development in early 2005 but introduced within a few months. It was effective against Spotted and American bollworms and local Gulabi Sundi but not against the Lashkari Sundi, they say.


I suspect the Lashkari Sundi is ejected from Lashkari Kundi. Jihadi worms from Jihadi Musharaff

Since what PM NaMo said in Bangladesh about Pakistan caused them a great deal of agitation, for reference purposes, here is what NaMo said about Pakistan.
http://observingliberalpakistan.blogspo ... adesh.html

Modi spoke in Hindi. The video is available at the link above. I'm a bit surprised Pakistan did not pick on the overall context of Modi's remarks.

My rough translation is: NaMo talks about how the world does not pay attention to the poor countries of the world; about how the 70th anniversary of the United Nations is coming up; but how the United Nations has not kept up with the times. Despite contributing a million men to fight in World Wars I & II, despite contributions to peace-keeping forces today, despite every one in six of humanity being Indian, India does not have a permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

NaMo then goes further into India's credentials. He talks about how Indians and Banglas fought together for the liberation of Bangladesh. He says, India forced a surrender of an army of 90,000 of those who had committed crimes against Bangladeshis. You can imagine, India had 90,000 captives of that Pakistan that has been annoying India (परेशान - Google translation is "upset", "disturb", "perturb", "annoy" - the English press used "nuisance"), harasses India (नाकों दम लाता है), incidents of terrorism keep occurring, if India had a perverted (विकृत)mentality, who knows what would have happened? Today if someone hijacks an airplane, in return for 25-50-100 passengers, they bring all kinds of demands. India had in custody 90,000 Pakistani soldiers, but witness the character of Hindustan, of Hindustan's army, we were concerned about Bangladesh's progress, about Bangladesh's self-respect, we did not use Bangla soil to wage war on Pakistan. We fought for the freedom fighters of Bangladesh, not to capture 90,000 Pakistani soldiers and blackmail Pakistan. Why, we wanted Bangladesh to develop, with the leadership of BangaBandhu (Sheikh Mujibur Rehman), to reach new heights, that was our dream, and so we put aside our own issues, put aside our own difficulties and sent the 90,000 soldiers back to Pakistan. This one incident is enough for the world to see how dedicated India is to peace, to world peace; and a permanent seat for India in the Security Council should have opened up. So, we poor countries, we developing countries, have to work together to solve our problems and to make an impact on the world stage.

#RAWattacksAfghanParliament: How Pakistan Twitter blamed the Taliban attack on India :

How brazen can brazen be? Consider the voices emanating from Pakistan over Monday’s terror attack on the Afghan parliament and this question will ring out loudly.

Many Pakistanis seriously believe that India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) choreographed the terror attack on Afghan parliament. #RAWattacksAfghanParliament has been the top trending subject on Pakistan Twitter since news of attack on Afghan parliament broke out. ................

Needless to say, such campaigns on social media are an integral feature of the psyops of Pakistani intelligence and security establishments. Consider some of the tweets soaked in malicious Pakistani propaganda. .......................

Strong and empty words of 'support' indeed! if Pakistan can facilitate 'peace' talks between Ghani and Afghan Taliban , then surely they can control their munna. What about Mullah Omar, Quetta Shura, IED factories etc etc
In my opinion, a message is being sent to India.

^^^
Paki were just being Paki, Modi did not say anything objectionable or not known already. Even Parikar statement of "Neutralizing terrorists with terrorists" did not mention Pakistan, but the Paki ******** distorted it to mean as if Parikar was talking about sponsoring terrorists inside Pakistan.

Next time we need to seriously admonish them if they make a raucous over such non-issues.

Indo-Pak border: Even Google Maps knows not to cross the line
Traditional rivals Pakistan and India have shared icy relations and fought several wars ever since gaining independence – and the rift between the two nations is now documented on Google Maps.

On a recent trip to Naya Nangal in Indian Punjab, UK resident Aman looked up ‘nearby towns’ on Google Maps and was shown Lahore in Pakistan’s Punjab.

Confirmation That Musharraf Shielded Xerox Khan From C.I.A Hands And Offered 'Jinn Scientist' Sultan Bashiruddin As Sacrificial Goat.

On the night of October 16, 2003, in Putrajaya, Malaysia, on the sidelines of Islamic Summit Conference, the Pakistani and Iranian Presidents met one-on-one; no protocol arrangements were made and no aides from either side were present. The meeting was initiated by Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, who sent a message to then president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, who had returned to the hotel after a hectic day. The meeting was arranged quickly and held in Musharraf’s suite. Khattami informed Musharraf that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had conclusive evidence that the centrifuges it discovered at Iranian nuclear installations during an inspection had come from A Q Khan Laboratories, and that the Iranian government was under tremendous pressure from the IAEA to make a public declaration regarding this discovery. Khattami mentioned that it would be difficult for the Iranian government to resist this pressure from the IAEA any longer; this meeting was to forewarn Pakistan.


Comment: So inspite of Shia - Sunni Ideological differences, there was 'cooperation' at another level. :-? So now there is confirmation that 'uncle' knew that Pak was heavily involved and yet to date, they have got 'scot free' :eek:

For those thinking along these lines, Mehmood’s meeting with Bin Laden was a much more serious threat than Khan distributing nuclear technology to three rogue nation states. American strategic literature is filled with possible scenarios, in which loose nukes land in the hands of terrorist organisations, so naturally they put more pressure on the Pakistani government to get access to Mehmood than they did for Khan.


Comment: So the 'minnow' was sacrificed to protect the 'big fish'


However, in the case of another nuclear scientist, the Pakistani government could not resist the US government’s pressure and allowed Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agents to interrogate and torture him. The scientist in question was Sultan Bashiruddin Mehmood, a maverick and ultra-religious member :eek: of the Atomic Energy Commission of Pakistan, which founded Pakistan’s nuclear bomb project in the 1970s. The physically-impaired scientist now lives a secluded life in Islamabad. I have not met him personally, but those who have say that the torture he endured during the CIA’s interrogation left him scarred for life, :( both mentally and physically.


Comment: So does it now mean than that he cannot 'work' on his Jinn Theories :D

It will be extremely difficult to move forward and erase memories and notions of our nuclear program from our country’s history and from the global perspective of Pakistan; especially when countries such as India never waste an opportunity :D to remind the world about our past.


Many diplomats and military officials serving in the Strategic Plans Divisions have done a wonderful job :eek: of furthering knowledge about our new security measures, especially by employing transparency and Western strategic thinkers and officials, to prove that Pakistan is a new country :?: as far as the safety and security of its nuclear power is concerned.


Comment: Xerox Khan, of course , has insurance, in the form of his 'diaries' smuggled out of the country; in case of an 'accident' to him, the 'dirt' will be released forthwith :D

TTP is probably waiting for Pak army to conclude zarb-e-zamzam and declare victory before resuming ops. Imagine the loss of face and demoralization for the army when that happens.

Karachi heatwave: Altaf imposes emergency at Nine-Zero



Speaking at a meeting of Rabita Committee Pakistan and London over telephone, he directed all officials and leaders to pay no heed to the Iftar dinner of Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, announced for Tuesday, and extend help and assistance to the affectees of heatwave in the city.


Meanwhile, sources told Geo News that today’s Iftar dinner at the CM House has been called off following snubs from the MQM, PML-Functional and PML-N.

Are you saying that, we have done something to make it dry.. The Sutlej is a pretty long river, with many tributaries coming from elsewhere in India, before it crosses over paki border.

Nangal Dam has shut its gates to the canal and water is diverted toward Rajasthan etc. Satluj is dry all the way to Phillaur and there are no other tributaries to Sutluj originating in Punjab after Phillaur.
India can open the gates of Nangal dam and drown big chunk of Pakiland overnight,

Traditional rivals Pakistan and India


One of the things we (as a forum that likes to be ahead of the curve) should aim for is to change the terms of reference that we have had imposed on us on "IndiaPakistan" issues. The current terms of reference favour Pakistan.

I am extremely irritated with the expression "traditional rivals". The expression seems innocent and appears to have a ring of truth to it and many Indian media use the expression blindly.

I would like to ask if the relationship between Pakistan and India is "rivalry" - as in two tribes or cricket teams trying to look better? Pakistan is an Islamic state. The relationship is one of radical Islamic state (set up for Muslims and being cleared of all but Sunni Muslims) opposing a democratic secular pluralistic nation state (India). What is the rivalry here? Clearly the relationship is not "rivalry".

Why then do the media keep using that word and why do we accept it lying down?

Then there is the other word, "traditional". The only thing "traditional about India's relationship with Pakistan is Pakistan attacking India and killing Indians. There is no corresponding Indian tradition of attacking and killing Muslims in Pakistan. Why is India's name included in this "tradition". And why do we read this in the media time and again and accept it as normal?

China blocks India's move seeking action against Pakistan over release of Lakhvi

China has blocked India's move in the UN demanding action against Pakistan over release of Mumbai attack mastermind and LeT commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi in violation of a resolution of the world body as it contended that India provided insufficient information.

As the UN Sanctions Committee met at India's request, a clarification was to be sought from Pakistan over Lakhvi's release in the 26/11 trial but the Chinese representatives blocked the move on grounds that India did not provide sufficient information, official sources said.

Sind Chief Minister In Blissful Ignorance As 500 People Die In Karachi

Over the weekend, the top man of the Sindh province was in Larkana :roll: on a two-day visit for the birth anniversary of Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) late chairperson Benazir Bhutto. Shah returned to Karachi Monday and issued a late night directive to the managing director at the Karachi water board to ensure supply and distribution free of charge in areas where there is a water deficit this Ramazan.

Shah also ordered all provincial administration departments against switching on air conditioners in offices till 11 AM and vowed that strict action will be taken against those who fail to comply.


"I want to inform you that a disaster management [system] already exists, not just for rains and storms but for such situations as well... they must have done their work. Non-government organisations must have also done their work," the chief minister said, adding that he was away for two days and is not equipped with the latest emergency relief information.


Either sidelined and / or not kept in the loop by the real powers, or simply did not care to return from the party/ sharty in Larkana ! In any other democratic set-up, he would be sent packing immediately, but then this is Pakistan :!:


"There have been deaths before, during everyone's time,” he said, not naming any political party. “Whose names should I take? I don't want to get into a controversy," Shah said in the assembly.


Trying to play down the human tragedy!


The chief minister said that the electricity department is handled by the central government, [*]adding that the organisation has an agreement with the federal government and not Sindh government.


[*]This is also known as 'passing the buck'

He added that he made several attempts to contact K-Electric owners in Dubai, who assured him [*]that they will invest in Karachi but lamented that the situation at hand suggests that they have not spent anything. "Like businessmen, they have taken advantage of the situation and exploited it."


[*]Just like PM (Ganja ) Sharif , who assures the nation every now and then ......


Parliamentarians offered funeral prayers in absentia outside the Parliament House, for those who succumbed to the ongoing heatwave in the country.


One 'wise' reader has commented that the Karachi citizens should go 'back to the basics' 8) ie like their ancestors, (a) start living in mud houses (b) stop using refrigerators to cool water.

Small questtion- how many of the HEAT WAVE deaths in Pakistan can be attributed to Ramzan fasting- there have been cases in Pakistan where heads have been chopped off for eating Bananas in Pakistan? Hih Heat plus the fear of not following the rules coupled with electricity shortage could accentuate the death rate.

India's Myanmar Raid Won't Deter Pakistani Terrorism

Unexamined in the discussion, however, is the critical question of whether the deterrence signals India is transmitting are even applicable to the threats emanating from Pakistan. The bombastic attitude in New Delhi these days fails to differentiate between jihadi groups over which Pakistan has some control and uses to its own strategic purposes as opposed to the large number of outfits that operate in defiance of the Pakistani state and see triggering unintended conflict between New Delhi and Islamabad as a way to advance their own interests. This is a challenge that can be summed up as the “Sorcerer’s Apprentice problem,” from Goethe’s classic tale about the dangers of conjuring up proxies one cannot ultimately handle. And it is something that U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned about more than five years ago.


So the attack on Parliament:
One expert on Pakistani terrorist groups underscores this possibility by noting that the significant signals traffic in the immediate aftermath of the parliament strike between Pakistan’s chief intelligence agency and the jihadis responsible for it indicates anger on the part of the Pakistani military leadership.


I look to our Norwegian colleagues to put this idiot in his place.

Pajistan doesn't even know how many people live in that land, how can they ever hope to know, how many were killed in the heat wave? One can only imagine, that people are prolly drinking water from the same pond that cattle are drinking from in interior sindh - those are the lucky ones.

The ones in Karachi slums, prolly get to drink chemical waste and organic waste contaminated water in addition to horrible living conditions.

In a democratic country, the netas will be rallying to provide succor to their citizens and vote banks in the slums. But in Pajisatan, because there is no democracy, elections are fixed by the army, so there is no such urgency. The real elections are how the karachi crore commander votes.

The Pajistani leaderaan are squirming, so they feel the heat themselves and lack of infrastructure. All this because there is no development budget. All this because 50 lakh Pak Faujis and their khandaans gobble up 40-50% of Pakistan's annual budget in their aiiyashi, arms purchases etc, so that 19.5 crore Pajisatanis have to do with the remaining 50% annual budget...

The Modi government is changing the way it conducts its foreign policy, entering into regional pacts while leaving out Pakistan that New Delhi sees as a reluctant player in achieving Saarc’s goal of greater integration.

“For long it was a Pakistan-obsessed regional policy, for that matter foreign policy. Time has come to think out of the box and move ahead,” a government source said.



India was encouraged by response from neighbours like Bangladesh and Nepal who would find sub-regional framework more helpful than fighting domestic political objection to signing “India-dictated” bilateral pacts, sources said.


New Delhi, said sources, would stay away from a Saarc gathering of transport secretaries in July “unless Pakistan spells out what it exactly wants from the meet”.

After Pakistan kept member countries waiting till last moment at Kathmandu for a grid plan, India has again gone ‘local’.

pakistan is truly laggard of south asia. The worst performing country in South Asia by a large margin, and their continuing hatred towards India proves that God isn't done teaching them a lesson yet, for so great are their sins.

An education curriculum rife with distorted history exacerbates Pakistan’s already serious internal tensions, according to new research commissioned by the U.S. Institute of Peace. At the same time, literacy rates and primary school enrollment are falling. Join the U.S. Institute of Peace on June 9 for a discussion of these trends and others that contribute to extremist narratives, and some potential approaches to address these critical factors.

^^^ USIP video above, around minute 53, Michael Kugelman says:
In Baluchistan 66% of children between 5 & 16 are not in school; and 47% in Punjab are not in school.

Around minute 54:30, 15% of 15-29 year old Pakistanis have completed secondary school.
Around minute 1:13:20, 85% of Pakistanis aged 15 and 16 are not in school (clarification of statement made at around minute 54).

The motorma tells us around minute 1:21 that there is a substantial difference in attitudes among men and women, and the more education of men correlates with worse attitudes.
