Hindustan Times for one is reporting that the Mohammadden separatists invited by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to meet their NSA, Sartaj Aziz, have been under house arrest. HT reports the Mohammadden separatists under house arrest are Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Yasin Malik, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Moulvi Abbas Ansari :

NDTV reports that just a few hours after they were placed in house arrest they have been released. While MAD may have a strategy that they are executing against, the apparent contradiction in the earlier tough stand on talks and the recent climb down don't reflect well on GoI. We cannot make strong policy statements and within months do a complete U turn.

Pakistan probes '$100 ID cards for militants' scam
KARACHI: Pakistani authorities are investigating officials at the national identity database for allegedly issuing ID cards to militants, including some linked to al-Qaida, in return for bribes as small as $100.

The country's main spy service, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) uncovered the alleged corrupt practices at the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) during ongoing anti-terrorism operations, according to official documents.

"It has been found that many NADRA officials are involved in facilitating miscreants and terrorists in obtaining fake identity,"aid ISI correspondence seen by AFP.

Commonwealth event will no longer be held in Islamabad

The event will no longer be held in Islamabad as Pakistan earlier declined to invite the speaker of Indian Kashmir assembly.

Jammu: Pakistani troops violated ceasefire by resorting to brief firing on border outposts (BoPs) along International Border (IB) in Samba district, drawing retaliation from BSF.

“Pakistan Rangers resorted to three rounds of firing on a BoP along IB in Samba sector around 2230 hours,” a senior BSF officer said today.

“We also retaliated with few rounds from this side,” he said, adding that there was no casualty or injury to anyone.

Just listing the changes in the West Asia-Subcontinent politics:

1) Yemen imbroglio - GCC: Saudis, Emirates, Kuwaitis were extremely angry that their poodle Pakistan decided against jumping when ordered to do so by the Arabs. This amounted to treachery, after having munched on so many juicy bones provided by the Gulf countries to Pakistan - easy credit, somewhere safe to stash money, cheap oil, funding of nuclear program, etc. Pakistanis declined to assist the Saudis in their hour of need, when the skirmishes with Yemen started.

2) Iranian breakout - The sanctions against Iran are coming to an end. That means Iran can again play an enhanced active part in the political theater. Pakistan feels that its interests are more aligned with that of Iran, especially regarding securing Central Asia as a closed space for China, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Russia, thus securing full control over Afghanistan, which Pakistan considers to be its backyard and denying India any access to Central Asia. Moreover Pakistan feels it can benefit from China, and for denying USA access, it can benefit from both China and Russia.

3) Chinese Corridor - Pakistan has also been promised $46 billion in Chinese investments especially for providing China with access to Gwadar port on the Indian Ocean.

4) Lashkar-e-Jhangvi clipped - Malik Ishaq, the leader of LeJ has been killed by Pakistan's security forces. This seems to be an unmistakable concession to Iran and Shias of Pakistan.

5) Taliban Control - Taliban has in the past also been under Pakistani control, but with the news of death of Mullah Omar, the nominal independence of Taliban's autonomy is also gone. Now Pakistan is officially the sugar daddy of Taliban, and those who want autonomy have been sidelined. Now Pakistan wants to control Afghanistan, despite moving away from single-minded Sunnite line. Possibly Pakistan desires sole control over Taliban, pushing out any Arab leanings and dependence of Taliban, read no more direction from Qatar.

6) Indo-UAE Accord - Since Pakistan has moved away from the Arab countries and thinks it can afford to move away from them, India has moved in to develop a broad-ranging security and economic relationship with them.

7) Houbara-Hunting Ban - The SC has chosen to put a ban on houbara hunting. As such such pranks and messages all sound at being of a childish level, but still Pakistan is willing to send these messages. There is not much in the form of official policy of Pakistan with which they can show their displeasure to Arab countries, but this seems like one way, harmless as it may sound. Though good for the Houbaras.

What all this means is that Pakistan is willing to move away from Arabs and move closer to Iranians and Turks, all under Chinese hegemony. Pakistan's priority remains control over Afghanistan and denial of access to Central Asia for India.

Since Pakistan's policy is determined by control over Afghanistan and access to Central Asia, it is exactly here that countries which feel cut out should focus their attention. It is here that the interests of USA, Gulf countries, Afghanistan and India converge. As long as Pakistan feels it is capable of denying access to Central Asia, it would tend to close ranks with Iran. It is this capability of Pakistan that needs to be taken away.

This means it is in interest of Arab countries, USA and India to ensure independence to Baluchistan or even Baluchistan's accession to India, in order to secure Baluchistan's independence from both Pakistan and Iran permanently. With loss of Baluchistan, both Gulf countries and USA would find, that Pakistan would be far more compliant to their wishes and policies.

$10 billion Pakistan nuclear power plant to be built by China - PTI
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today inaugurated construction work on a China-backed $10 billion nuclear power plant here.

The Karachi Nuclear Power Plant II (Kanupp II) with the capacity to produce 1,100 MW electricity is being built with the assistance of China, which has become the biggest investor in energy and infrastructure projects in Pakistan.

"This project is an example of the healthy friendship between Pakistan and China. We are thankful for the continued support of Pakistan by the Chinese government," Sharif said.

He also congratulated the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission on the timely start of the project after its foundation was laid in November 2013.

Built for an estimated cost of USD 10 billion, the project was in the spotlight due to opposition by civil society activists who alleged that it was being built in violation of environmental laws.

The start of work on Kanupp II will pave the way for the construction of Kanupp III, also with a planned capacity to produce 1,100 MW, to be built with Chinese help.

The groundbreaking of Kanupp III was also performed in 2013 along with Kanupp II.

Guys, there is a puke worthy equal equal editorial in today's NYT. Given TSP's close connection with US govt, and NYT being a mouthpiece of US govt when it comes to foreign policy, this is exactly the result TSP wanted. Create harakiri, cry foul against India, and then call for UNMOGIP or whatever. Nothing new in TSP strategy, nor its 3.5. So everything is playing according to script. Only thing new is ModiJi's tough stand on the Harried rats, but that also seems to have been diluted. Looks like a compromise formula is being worked out where the rats meet TSP after talks with Doval.

As I mentioned before NSA talks is a forum for reading the riot act and end the chai biskoot - back channel nonsense. I think Doval ji will give the warning before the big stick is used. And I am sure there is a big stick in store.

X Posted from the “Pakistani Role In Global Terrorism” thread.

Dawn reports that no Jaziya reimbursements from Coalition Support Fund (CSF) will be forthcoming as US will not certify that the Punjabi dominated uniformed Jihadi’s of the military of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan have adequately carried out counter-terrorism operation in North Waziristan targeting their Un-uniformed Jihadi proxy’s belonging to the Haqqani Network:

ISLAMABAD: In a move that has blocked the disbursement of the next tranche of Coalition Support Fund (CSF), the United States has told Pakistan that it would not be certifying to the Congress that its (Pakistani) counter-terrorism operation in North Waziristan damaged the Haqqani network.

This was conveyed by the US Department of Defence to the Pakistani mission in Washington as well as to the authorities in Islamabad, according to a highly placed source.


From here:

US finds action against Haqqani network inadequate

Expensive. Per this page, scroll down to the second graphic
http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Econo ... ear-Power/
China is able to do $3500/kW, i.e., 1100 MW should be $3.9 billion. Even if both 1100 MW plants are included, it should be $7.8 billion, not $10 billion.

Omar Abdullah writes an article titled “Modi Government Has Lost Face, Big Time” dealing with the question of bilateral talks with the terrorist fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

I agree with Omar Abdullah’s statement “I wish the government of India attached as much importance to not losing face as the Chinese do, because today, the Modi government has lost face, big time.” :

Reported in Dunya (July 6, 2015) more than 200,0000 nuts and bolts and thousands of iron sleepers were stolen from the Lahore-Narwoal railway line. An inquiry that began six months ago has not been completed yet. Meanwhile, trains travel at 30 km/h on the track, and wobble (hichkolay). - See more at: http://www.thefridaytimes.com/tft/nugge ...

What I am trying to say is that we have the right man to play the cards. Read about how Mizo national front was won over. Basically the hurrirats live in India and want to get political power. They cannot get political power even if pakis support them 100%. They have to win elections. They cannot be appointed by the Paki army (unlike the prime ministers of Pakistan). The only way they can win elections now is to be seen to be playing a constructive role in whatever political settlement JK has. India can torpedo the plan by simply cutting them out of the process. As time goes by and as NC and PDP split the political space between them, they are the ones who'd want and have claims to whatever good happens in the valley. Because they are the ones who have been ruling. Tomorrow if militancy ends, unemployment reduces who will be given credit? Hurrirats or PDP?

It is in hurrirats best interests to cut a deal with India rather than be Paki puppets. We know that, pakis know that. All this song and dance of considering them the "true representatives of Cashmere" is just Paki desperation.

I find it very likely that our man in charge has explained these things patiently to them already.

Anujan, Hurrirats genesis is US. Robin Raphael was founding Godmother of Hurrirats.

They were formed as pressure group against India to not conduct a nuke test. After 1998 tests they acquired a dynamic of their own.

Why on earth would Pakis go against their leash masters i.e. Arabs and throw their lot with Shia Iran who may or may not have any great future. Who knows how Iran will play Pakis when the dust settles down.
Throwing few bearded men against Yeman rebels wasn't such a hard deal for Pakis when in return, They could have filled coffers with more money.
Question that I can't answer is - What was in it for Pakis to dump Arab master when Arabs needed them the most.

However, they will still lose whatever is left of their face when they sit in the "same chamber" as the Indian Delegation along with the Speaker of the J & K Assembly.

In addition Cwapistan did not get to host the the Commonwealth Parliamentary Union (CPU) event scheduled to be held in I slam a bad.

So the "CPU Event" will be India "WON" Cwapistan "NIL".

Nadeem Paracha has a good one:
http://www.dawn.com/news/1201462/multic ... -gone-sour

Basically, Pakistanis who grew prosperous, did so in the Middle East countries. So they take their Indo-Pakistani traditions to be lower-class, and Islamization to be upper class. Similarly, Pakistanis in the West have mostly "ghettoized" themselves, and have become more Islamic.

IMO, it is not a failure of multiculturalism. I think the Amish, who want to live with 19th century technology, and the ultra-Orthodox Jews, who maintain ancient practices seemingly incompatible with modern life manage to live in or around America's major metropolises. The difference they have with the puranitical Muslim is that they feel no need to impose their values on others.

Here's another essayist, Theodore Dalrymple:
http://www.city-journal.org/2015/eon0730td.html

When Cameron said that he wanted to build a more cohesive society, he didn’t pause to consider whether cohesiveness can be built, as if societies were made of Lego. When he said that many immigrants to Britain didn’t feel British, he deliberately missed the point that it’s not how immigrants feel that matters, but how they behave. No one has any idea how British the Polish, Brazilian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and other immigrants (of whom there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions in total) feel, but nobody cares, because none of them is intent upon the destruction of British institutions. This is not true of some unknown and probably unknowable—but possibly not negligible—proportion of Muslims, no matter which part of the Islamic world they come from.

Suhasini Haider recently tweeted that Modi should have asked for community center instead of a Temple. That's her level of Secularism. Her personal life dictates her worldview; so she is RAPEtte (R? Anglicized Pakistani Elite) in Her PoV; hence her comment on Hafiz Pig!

No space for third party, says official - Suhasini Haidar, Mehboob Jeelani, The Hindu
The house arrest of Hurriyat leaders in Srinagar ahead of National Security Adviser Sartaj Aziz’s visit to Delhi on Aug. 23 led to a blame game between the Central and State governments, but Pakistan High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit said, “As far as we know, the leaders will be meeting Mr. Aziz in Delhi. It wouldn’t be correct to speculate on a hypothetical situation until the confusion clears.”

Diplomatic sources confirmed that Mr. Aziz will arrive in Delhi only on August 23rd evening, a day later than originally planned. He will then attend the reception organised by the Pakistani High Commission, which would be attended by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq. Yasin Malik will send representatives to the reception, while the spokesperson of Mr. Geelani’s section of the Hurriyat Ayaz Akbar told The Hindu that he would meet Mr. Aziz on Monday, possibly after Mr. Aziz’s talks with Mr. Doval.

However, government sources said any meeting between the Hurriyat and Mr. Aziz was unacceptable if it sought to give the impression that the separatists were being consulted. “There is no space for a third party in talks between India and Pakistan, especially given these talks will only focus on terror,” a senior official told The Hindu .


Meanwhile, officials in New Delhi confirmed there was no agenda for the NSAs’ talks, adding that it was Pakistan’s “attempt to expand the agenda beyond Ufa” that caused the collapse of pre-talk talks.

Significantly, it was not Kashmir that caused the diplomatic divergence between the foreign offices, but Pakistan’s insistence on discussing the future of bilateral talks and setting up the next round of Foreign Secretary-level talks that made India reject it.

“The Ufa statement was very clear in what it mandated, and that is the NSA talks on terror, including 26/11 voice samples, and some discussions on DGMO meetings, fishermen and religious tourism,” an Indian official told The Hindu
.

However, Pakistani officials point to the phrase in the Ufa statement that said they were “prepared to discuss all outstanding issues” to ask why a structure to discuss the outstanding issues could not be a part of the draft.

Sources said despite several attempts by Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan TCA Raghavan and Mr. Basit between August 14 and August 18, the two sides had to abandon the idea of the draft agenda document, which is considered a preliminary diplomatic document.

On August 19, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with his Cabinet colleagues as well as Pakistani Army Chief General Raheel Sharif and Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence Lt. Gen. Rizwan Akhtar to discuss Mr. Aziz’s brief for the talks.

^^^ With all of Pakistan's accusations about Indian involvement in Baluchistan, isn't Baluchistan an "outstanding issue"? Rather than denying or confirming any support for Balochi militants, India could simply talk about the merits of Baluchi independence, as an outstanding issue. That old line "we only provide moral support" that Pakistan threw at India all through the 80s and 90s, might be useful.

Please note... the same 'brave' Baki fauj did an unconditional surrender in 1971 of 93,000 troops, preferring to eat Hindoo biryani daal-chawal than shadat. Despite all the bluster and bluff, the Baki fauji elite is all about making easy money and not putting their lives on the line. It is perfectly OK to send cannon fodder like non-state actors or lower ranking fauji's dressed up as irregular forces (Kargil).

Arab four father expected regular forces, led by kernails and jernails to slug it out in Yemen. These kernails and jernails know pretty well that they would face Islamic POW justice at the hands of Islamic fighters, unlike niceties like Geneva conventions etc. extended by professional armies. Even in Afghanistan, they sent in mujahdeens.

India advises Pak against Aziz meeting separatists - ToI
India on Friday made it clear to Pakistan that it should not go ahead with the meeting of its NSA Sartaz Aziz with Hurriyat representatives here when he comes to hold talks with his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval, saying it will not be "appropriate".

In a clear message to the Pakistan high commission, which has invited hardline Kashmir separatist leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani and others separatists, India said such a meeting would not be in keeping with the spirit and intent of the understanding reached at UFA, Russia to jointly work to combat terrorism.

"India has advised Pakistan yesterday that it would not be appropriate for Sartaz Aziz to meet with Hurriyat representatives in India," spokesperson in the external affairs ministry Vikas Swarup said in a tweet.

He tweeted that India has sought confirmation of its proposed agenda for the NSA-level talks that was conveyed to the Pakistani side on August 18.

We have also sought confirmn of our proposed agenda for the NSA level talks that was conveyed to the Pakistani side on 18 Aug 2015.

Vice Air Marshal (R) Shahid Latif erred urinate fearing Indian jets: Altaf Hussain


The MQM chief quoted this incident during addressing his party workers on Sunday. He was addressing to a huge cession of his party. Altaf asserted that the officer himself narrated that incident to him and that he (Shahid Latif) used to practice on trial flights off and on.

Once during such a flight, he mistakenly crossed Indian Red Cliff line and entered into Indian territory that incited Indian air force to follow him.

According to Altaf, Shahid Latif got scared watching Indian fighters following him. Hot of fear, he escaped and landed his jet on a nearby airbase. After a while, when the crew of air force came for checking his plane, they discovered that the seat of the jet was wet suggesting the pilot erred to urinate out of fear.



Just to remind BRFites who this pee-brained "fighter" is , this is how he looks like when dry and not under a bout of fear of India induced incontinence


Here he shows how big the rip was on his behind

And here he is proudly showing the wet seat and instrument panel to his "pee"rs of Pee-AF
