What top world media says about Pak situation!
KARACHI: The army commander and ruler of Roman Empire, Julius Caesar enlarged the Empire, expanding it from Africa to Europe. A patient of epilepsy by birth, he, reaching the Court, often fell unconscious. After the demise of his first wife, Julius Caesar married a girl, named Pompeia. One day Pompeia held a festival in the commemoration of goddess Bona Dea. No man was allowed to attend the festival, but a young man Clodius disguised himself and was able to reach Pompeia. Doing so, he was apprehended and tried for touching her. However, Caesar could not present any proof against him during the trial, and thus the court set him free. Nevertheless Caesar, saying that his wife mist be above suspicion, divorced his wife. It gave rise to a famous proverb: ‘Caesar’s wife must be above suspicion’…. Commenting on the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif by Pakistan’s judiciary, a Saudi newspaper alluded to this proverb, saying that Nawaz Sharif had forgotten this norm that ‘Caesar’s wife must be above suspicion’. Pakistani Prime Ministers have been removed from offices in different ways. Sometime the revolt of powerful circles exiled them; sometime the judiciary sent them home packing, they were ousted by their own parties, or murdered or sometime hanged or intrigues brewing in the House forced them to resign. So, none of them was allowed to complete his term. On the other hand, none of the powerful persons was brought to book. International media has seen the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as a political volatility. The influential newspapers, magazines and think tanks have declared it precarious for democratic values, political stability and economic progress of the country. This verdict has also highlighted an important proposition of Pakistan’s political saga that its 70 year old history has not seen any Prime Minister completing his five year term. Instead of strengthening the democratic process, the judiciary has also reinforced the powerful circles. This verdict has set forth a dangerous precedence.
• No powerful person brought to book, premiers either forced into exile or sent packing through judiciary
• Sometimes party ousted them, sometimes assassinated or sent to gallows, and sometimes had to resign due to in-house conspiracies
• Economist says verdict dealt another blow to a weak democracy while economy was gaining stability
• WP sees revival of a regrettable example
• Chinese media believe political issues shouldn’t be settled in courts
• Global Times sees threats to CPEC
• Japanese mag terms Pak democracy hybrid, neither completely democratic nor dictatorship
• Iranian media find dangers to economic progress
• US magazine hints at minus 3 formula; Imran may also fall prey
• Indian newspaper sees judiciary’s close contact with establishment
• Foreign Policy Magazine sees mystery behind Nawaz’s ouster
• Bloomberg says democratic mandate sent packing once again
• NYT believes judges weakened concept of justice
• Moody’s believes it won’t be possible to continue policies
• CNN predicts another huge success for Nawaz in polls
• US newspaper believes Imran’s success is far from reality
• Some international newspapers, magazines and think tanks comment on the disqualification of Prime Minister by
Pakistani judiciary

Pakistan engineered Mullah Mansour’s death, claims NYT report

According to the NYT report, when Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour , then Taliban leader, was killed in an American drone strike, he sensed hours ago that something was not right.When he came home from a secret visit from Iran in May 2016, he called his relatives and brother while driving in a remote area of Southwestern Pakistan to let them know that he was about to die, reports claimed. “He knew something was happening,” a former Taliban commander, who is close to Mullah Mansour’s inner circle, said in an interview. “That’s why he was telling his family members what to do and to stay united.”Taliban commanders do not give interviews but it was a rare case as this one agreed to sit for interview on the condition that his name and location would not be made public. This fellow agreed for interview as he had escaped from insurgent’s rank and his life was under threat.
His statements offered insights into final hours of Mullah Mansour’s life and why and how he was killed revealing dangerously widening rift with Pakistani sponsors, reported NYT.The account was complemented and supported in interviews with two senior Afghan officials who have conducted their own investigations into the Taliban leader’s death — Haji Agha Lalai, presidential adviser and deputy governor of Kandahar; and Gen. Abdul Raziq, the police chief of Kandahar Province.Growing number of western security analysts and Afghans on both sides of war contented after more than a year that Pakistan was the mastermind behind Mullah Mansour’s death as it wanted the removal of the Taliban leader it could not trust, according to NYT report. There were similar reports about the time of his death ! This just confirms what was suspected earlier .
“Pakistan was making very strong demands,” the former commander said. “Mansour was saying you cannot force me on everything. I am running the insurgency, doing the fighting and taking casualties and you cannot force us.”Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada an Islamic cleric with no military experience became leader of the Taliban after the demise of Mullah Mansour. Yet Afghanistan has seen little reprieve with his death, as hard-liners within the movement took over and redoubled their offensive to take power.There is little chance of anyone speaking out, the former commander said. “Ninety percent of the Taliban blame the Pakistanis,” he said. “But they cannot say anything. They are scared.”While preparing for an ambitious offensive across eight provinces in Afghanistan last year, Mullah Mansour wanted to expand his sources of support, they said.The report further claimed he relied for main financing of Taliban group on Arab Gulf states, Pakistan’s intelligence agency and Afghan drug lords. Moreover, he also sought weapons from Iran and Russia and also met with officials of both countries. This also confirms the oft repeated cliche that "you can rent an Afghan, but you cannot "own" him" :mrgreen:
Mullah wanted to get Taliban out of the control and reach of Pakistan that’s why he formed relations with Iran, according to his former associate and Afghan officials. He wanted to negotiate peace in accordance with his terms that’s where his different views from Pakistan gained momentum, NYT said. Mullah Mansour had refused to follow orders from Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI, to destroy infrastructure and to increase the cost of the war for the Afghan government. He opposed the promotion of Pakistan’s hard-line protégé Sirajuddin Haqqani to be his deputy, and he had dodged Pakistan’s demands to push its agenda in negotiations.
He says that Mullah Mansour was seeking new protectors as his disagreements with Pakistan were growing.“There were reports that he may have wanted to escape,” General Raziq said. “We knew one month before that Mansour was ready to make peace.” General Raziq also said Mullah Mansour feared assassination by Pakistan. “He told his relatives that ‘relations with Pakistan were very bad and they might kill me.”Mullah Mansour was alone on the day he was killed. The Paki Deep State has no qualms about eliminating Afghan Taliban leaders , who do not follow the "Pakistani Agenda". Hamid Karzai's father was a victim. And so is Hamid Karzai still in the cross-hairs of the Paki Deep State, because of his nationalistic views and his friendship with India !
For many in the Taliban, Mullah Mansour’s death represented a devastating betrayal by their longtime patron and sponsor, Pakistan that has split and demoralized the ranks.About two dozen senior commanders from Mullah Mansour’s Pashtun tribe have defected to the Afghan government or moved into Afghanistan in fear of further retribution from Pakistan.
The strike against Mullah Mansour was the first time a top Afghan Taliban leader had been killed inside Pakistan, which has provided a sanctuary for Taliban leaders throughout their 16-year insurgency against Afghanistan.At the time, President Barack Obama and other American officials and diplomats expressed satisfaction.“He was a prime target for the Americans and the Afghan government,” General Raziq said. “He was a terrorist.”

Fat Pakjabi Bureaucrats On The "Chopping Block" ?

Costing one billion, a foreign firm hired to decide work load of officers
Javed Iqbal- The Nation
August 4, 2017

To the displeasure of the bureaucracy working in Punjab, the Ernst & Young (E&Y) has been assigned the task of calculation of work load as well as the distribution of the superior executive allowance to be given to the senior and junior officers working in Punjab, The Nation has learnt. The Punjab government would pay approximately one billion rupees to the firm for its services, said the sources. The Secretary Finance Hamid Yaqoob Shaikh didn’t respond despite repeated attempts.
Would not be surprised if this "demand" came from the WB or IMF - as a pre-requisite to grant more loans to the insolvent Govt !
E&Y, one of the ‘big four’ accounting firms and one of the largest professional services firm is a multinational professional services firm headquartered in London. One of the four service lines of the E&Y includes an advisory role in Actuarial, IT Risk and Assurance, Risk, and Performance Improvement. Official sources in the Punjab Chief Minister’s office told that the provincial hierarchy could not satisfy the chief executive ( Shahbaz? ) on its proposal to allow executive allowance to other senior officers both from the federal and provincial services.
So, the already "underworked" Pakjabi Bureaucrats wanted to "drink more at the already depleted public trough" :mrgreen:
A proposal in the tenure of former Chief Secretary Punjab Khizar Hayat Gondal was floated and presented to the CM Punjab. In the presentation, the CM Shahbaz had made a query as how all the officers may be given equal allowances irrespective of their job nature. Then the officers presented a B-Plan that addressed the query but the CM Shahbaz was not satisfied. It was conveyed to the CM that officers performing hard assignments in big departments could be given more allowance as compared to those working in small departments like Zakat department etc. So, the "clever brother" is nickle and diming the "poor" bureaucrats , while there is no check on the "commissions" that he and Ganja are collecting on the millions and millions dollars worth of contracts that is being handed out in the name of the so-called gamechanger CPEC !
“The CM Punjab didn’t agree with the B-Plan as well and directed the concerned to hire the services of a well-reputed firm to calculate work load of departments as well as officers,” official sources said.“The job assigned to the foreign firm could be done by a committee comprising of the senior officers to save the huge amount of money being paid to the foreign firm,” said one of the senior secretaries in the Civil Secretariat. India based Consultancy Firms (with a solid reputation!) would have done the job at 1/10 the price charged by E&Y ! The fun will start when the E&Y preliminary team sent to Pakiland will inevitably include some Yindoo and RAA members (unless the Pakjab Govt specifically requests that they be "excluded" for national security reasons ! :twisted:
“We were demanding a small part of the amount being given to the firm hired for the purpose of calculating work load, ” said the officer adding the committee had held meetings with the officers and collected data. “It will waste time and money to the loss of the competent officers” he feared.It is to be learnt that the Punjab government notified an allowance to the chief secretary, administrative head of the government, to be given Rs 400,000 while the IGP Rs 375,000 other than their salaries. So, So, there is already a sense of loss of morale on this decision to outsource the study . Pay one billion to save "a couple of millions" . "Cutting your nose to spite your face" kind of situation :twisted: !
Meanwhile, the executive allowance for other positions like administrative secretaries, Senior Member Board of Revenue (SMBR), P&D chairman, additional chief secretary, Anti-Corruption Establishment DG, CMIT chairman, director generals, additional secretaries, deputy secretaries were to be given handsome allowances after the nod of the CM office. A handsome amount of Rs 45,000 to Rs 300,000 was to be given to officers falling in different categories. While all this is being decided upon, the awaam are forced to drink contaminated water and "donkey meat" is openly sold in La-Whore market !
He said the Punjab government wanted to give the allowances to its top officers for the sensitivity of their job nature. They were 24/7 engaged officers but get much less than they deserved, he asserted. He said that junior officers of the S&GAD in different companies, authorities, and projects get in millions or lacs contrary to the administrative boss who was responsible for all the matters of the provincial government. Whether the "recommendations" of the "famous" consultancy firm (E &Y ) will be actually implemented is another question, in view of the current political turmoil and the departure of Shahbaz from provincial politics. . Most likely the report will be prepared and will gather dust like the earlier reports about "loss of the Eastern wing", and the report about OBL. :mrgreen:

Grenade Discovered On Campus :shock:

Police recovers hand grenade from Nullah in Peshawar University

A hand grenade was recovered today from a Nullah in Peshawar University (PU), said police.According to Peshawar police, the Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) team reached the site as soon as the grenade was recovered. PU is located near the tribal area of Khyber Agency which has been targeted by terrorism and militancy.. However, Pakistan Army has been engaged in anti-militancy and terrorism operation in Khyber Agency for last few years and currently Operation Khyber 4 is going on to clear some areas of the agency from militants and IS fighters. "Action" at this institute of "higher learning" (PU campus )is not too far away then. !

Pakistanis Not Deemed Worthy Of Travel To Qatar Without Visa :mrgreen:

Qatar offers visa-free entry to nationals of 80 countries

DOHA – Qatar will allow visa-free entry for citizens of 80 countries with immediate effect, Qatari officials announced on Wednesday.
These countries include US, UK, Japan, Argentina, India, Malaysia and New Zealand.


Pakistanis are conspicuously missing from this (good news) list ! IMO, it could be because of two reasons:
-Paki Govt in general and Ganja Sharif in particular have cast their lot with the House Of Saud in the inter-Ummah tiff . Although for H&D reasons, a pretense of neutrality is being maintained, even going so far in offering their "services" as a "honest broker" . The "proud" Arabs are not going to accept a (Paki ) miskeen as a mediator- and the Pakis know it . :twisted:
- The holders of the "green passport" are "notorious" throughout the world for illegal activities ( drug smuggling, over staying, etc etc ) . Qatar therefore has a specials screening process for such applicants !

PTI Worker "Bats For Immy" Against The Kaptaan's Ex !

‘Truth will hurt you’, Reham Khan warns Murad Saeed over accusations of conspiring against Imran Khan

LAHORE – Imran Khan’s former wife, Reham Khan has suggested PTI lawmaker Murad Saeed not risk his political career by maligning her because “the truth will hurt him”. After living 24/7 with "her man", she knows him inside out !
Responding to Murad’s allegations of campaigning against the PTI chairman, Reham Khan tweeted that he (Murad Saeed) should know that she could quash his claims with evidence. (videos, recordings, documents or just plain hearsay, masquerading as "evidence" :mrgreen: )
She added, “We will attach the invoice also in response to your question. I am not the one with skeletons in the closet young ( is she old ?)
man.”
Murad Saeed, a young lawmaker of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf from the party’s stronghold Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, had earlier said that Reham Khan’s allegations towards her ex-husband were a new strategy to malign him (Imran Khan).
He asked the PTI chief’s ex to disclose the name of people she used to meet in a hotel. “Receptions used to be organized for Reham Khan at the house of a political leader,” he had claimed. ( Low blow !!! Where is the Pakpattani Female Pir - the current "favorite" of Imran - in all of this :mrgreen: )

Profile Of A Failed Paki Teenage Suicide Bomber

Would-be suicide bomber sheds light on suspected Pakistani militant web
Reuters.

SHIKARPUR, Pakistan - The confession of a Pakistani teenager who was captured moments before carrying out a suicide attack has given police a rare glimpse into a militant network they say is behind the recent surge in sectarian violence.
Usman's testimony, a copy of which has been seen by Reuters, describes a web of radical seminaries and training and bomb making facilities stretching from eastern Afghanistan, where the young man was recruited, to Pakistan's southern Sindh province. Afghan Taliban suicide bombers make a reverse journey- recruit and train in Pakistan, and cause havoc in Afghanistan !
Hundreds of people have been killed in attacks on Pakistan's small Shi'ite community, heightening fears in the Sunni-dominated country of an escalation in sectarian bloodshed that has been a persistent threat for decades.Pakistani police believe the network, which Usman says aided him on his 2,000 km journey, has also helped Islamic State spread its extremist agenda in South Asia, even without proven operational links with its core in the Middle East. Now the "snakes", earlier groomed in the backyard are coming back to bite the "snake trainers" :mrgreen:
Usman's confession does not name Islamic State directly, but police say they believe the network that recruited and trained him was behind five deadly sectarian bombings in Pakistan, four of which have been claimed by the group based in Syria and Iraq. Pakistan denies Islamic State presence on its soil. !
"ISIS (Islamic State) has no formal structure (in Pakistan). It works on a franchise system and that is the model that is being used in Pakistan," senior Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officer Raja Umer Khattab told Reuters. By that he said he meant Islamic State could claim attacks as its own, even if it had no direct role in coordinating them. The "Franchisor" ( if you may call it that !) is of course, the Paki Deep State or AKA ISI :mrgreen:
Usman, 18 at the time of the thwarted attack, is currently on death row in the town of Shikarpur, where he was caught. Reuters was unable to contact him for this story, but Usman's court-appointed lawyer said the family had shown no interest in the case. "I am not sure if an appeal has been filed against the sentence, since no one from his family ever turned up to even meet Usman," advocate Deedar Brohi told Reuters, adding that his client had been sentenced by an anti-terrorism court in March. "Family's interest" in the son, may also "invite" Deep State's harassment of the family !
Under interrogation, Usman, arrested last September, described his recruitment in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, where U.S. and Afghan forces have been fighting a local offshoot of Islamic State estimated to number a few hundred fighters. Originally from the Pakistani valley of Swat, his family fled to Nangarhar after his father, a member of the Pakistani Taliban, was killed in a drone strike. Usman told investigators he came home one day to find his brother sitting with an older man. "My brother said that you should join jihad ... you should become a suicide bomber," Usman said in the confession. The elder brother was probably brainwashed under the auspices of Malsi !
He left that day and traveled with the older man by bus to the Afghan province of Kandahar, where they crossed into Pakistan's Baluchistan province. From there, they rode a motorcycle to the remote desert town of Wadh in southern Baluchistan, where Usman began his training and stayed at the home of a man called Maaz.
"In our room, Maaz took out explosives from a bag and prepared two suicide jackets," Usman told investigators.
Police suspect Wadh is where several militant movements, including al Qaeda, the Pakistani Taliban and other local banned groups, have been active. The media wing of Pakistan's military did not respond to requests for comment for this article, including how militants could use Wadh as hub. An intelligence official, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the press, denied Wadh was part of a militant network.
"No training camp in Wadh or safe (haven) for militants now," the official said in a Whatsapp message.
After about a month in Wadh, Usman said he traveled by motorcycle with an escort on dusty back roads to Shikarpur. A few days later, he was dispatched with his explosives vest to attack a prayer meeting attended by Shi'ite Muslims. The attack failed when one worshipper spoke to Usman in the local Sindhi language, which he could not understand. A crowd gathered and grabbed him before he could reach his detonator. So, it was only by "chance" that the attack failed !
Police investigators, who spoke about the case on condition of anonymity, said Usman's confession helped them identify several key militants including a suicide vest maker and the man who oversees the network - a former Pakistani intelligence services asset named Shafiq Mengal. "Our intelligence shows that he has 500-1,000 militants working under him and is living in the mountains," said a senior police official. Reuters was unable to contact Mengal or independently confirm the assertions of the police official. But his father, a prominent Baluch politician during the military regime of General Zia ul Haq in the 1980s, said his son had no links with militant networks. So, now he has "switched sides" and opposes the Paki Govt !
"Shafiq has not given shelter to any terrorist outfit and their activities," former Baluchistan chief minister Naseer Mengal told Reuters.However, the older Mengal added that his son had been active in supporting Pakistani security forces in battling Baluch separatist groups. "Shafiq fought against those elements who challenged the writ of State and were involved in target killings of innocent people and security forces," he said.
An internal police profile of Mengal seen by Reuters said he attended an elite school in the eastern city of Lahore before completing his education at a madrassa. According to the document, prepared by a Baluchistan police official, Mengal "was set up by the intelligence agencies to counter separatist Baloch militants" that fight the government in Baluchistan. Another "Ahmed Saeed Omar Sheikh", the triple agent and killer of Daniel Pearl. Only this time, the "would be agent" himself turned !
The report said that, more recently, it appeared Mengal shifted his efforts to helping jihadists. The intelligence official said Mengal no longer had any association with the military.. The armed forces have launched several major offensives against groups including al Qaeda and the Taliban in recent years, but they have also been accused of using militants as proxy fighters in Kashmir and Baluchistan - a charge they deny. But no one believes it :mrgreen:
Police said another important suspect in the network was Hafeez Brohi, already on Pakistan's wanted terrorist list. He comes from Shikarpur, and it was at Brohi's residence that they said the teenager stayed before the failed attack.Usman did not name Brohi directly but said a man named Umer Hafiz, who police officials say was actually Brohi, took him from Wadh to Shikarpur by motorbike.Usman's police case file also identifies Brohi as one of the main suspects in the failed bombing. Case files seen by Reuters on several other sectarian attacks in Shikarpur also single him out.
The town itself, some 250 km east of Wadh but several times that distance by road, is seen as an increasingly important center of sectarian extremism, according to officials from the counter terrorism department.Two local Shi'ite mosques were targeted by attacks in 2015. Several new madrassas have been built in the area in recent years, and members of the Shi'ite minority suspect that they are used by Sunni hardliners to spread religious intolerance. "The madrassas are concentrated in remote villages," said Syed Atta Hussain Shah, the imam of the Shi'ite mosque in Shikarpur. "Preachers show up from elsewhere and stay in these madrassas and deliver hate-filled sermons."
Police officials said they suspected Brohi was the point man for the network in southern Sindh province and was involved in the bombing at Sehwan Sharif shrine that killed 90 people - the most deadly attack in Pakistan claimed by Islamic State. Brohi has been in hiding for the last three or four years, according to CTD officials. Usman was sentenced to death in March along with 10 militants in absentia, including Brohi. Shikarpur, once known for its Sindhi Hindu traders, used to be a crossroads or hub for trading . Now it has become another hub for killing Shias !

Former Contractor Pervez Khattak Now, PTI Ruled KP Province Chief Minister, Accused Of Massive Corruption :roll:

Graft Allegations Fragment Pakistan’s Anti-Corruption Party

A Pakistani political party that once promised to cleanse the upper echelons of government from corruption is now falling apart over graft allegations among the members of its provincial administration.Four years ago, the Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaaf (PTI), or the movement for justice, swept the polls in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province promising to end big corruption and create a model for good governance in a country struggling with predatory politicians and crooked civil and military bureaucrats.The party’s firebrand leader and cricketer-turned-politician, Imran Khan, promised to eventually create a “new Pakistan” in the image of a “new Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.” Imran Khan has been known to make bombastic statements . Some say that he suffers from "foot in mouth" disease :twisted:
Today, however, the party’s provincial administration is a mess. Its lawmakers and cabinet members accuse each other of graft. Such accusations imperil PTI’s provincial administration and cast a dark shadow over its fortunes in the parliamentary election scheduled for next year.As the chief minister or most senior elected official in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pervez Khattak is a target of mounting criticism. Former cabinet colleagues and PTI lawmakers are blaming the former contractor of making big bucks and enriching his relatives during his stint in power.
Not to mention "enriching" the provincial madrassahs by "bribing" them with "grants" to ensure that they make "no trouble" for PTI !
Ziaullah Afridi, a former minister for mines and minerals in Khattak’s cabinet, accused him of awarding a multimillion-dollar mining contract to a relative in violation of government rules. He also accused the chief minister of orchestrating a major financial scandal in a commercial bank operated by the provincial government.
Afridi wields a strong personal grudge against Khattak, who ordered his removal from office and arrest on graft charges in July 2015. Afridi spent several months in a prison and still faces several court cases. However, Afridi says he was sent to prison after confronting Khan with alleged evidence of Khattak’s corruption. “I told Khan several times that Khattak and his cronies are involved in large-scale corruption and that they are earning a bad name for the party and for him,” he told RFE/RL’s Gandhara website. “But I was always discouraged.” Immy is himself accused of corruption by his political opponents , so it is in his own interest to keep all of this "under wraps" :mrgreen:
PTI is now embroiled in a major scandal after one of its female lawmakers, Ayesha Gulalai, accused Khan of sending her lewd text messages and doing little to stop Khattak’s corruption in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Gulalai also accused Khattak of acting like a mafia boss.“Khattak has nepotism in place, with his relatives benefiting from his stint in power,” she told journalists. “When I went to Imran and provided him with evidence of Khattak’s corruption, he cast it all aside.” As press reports have indicated , the feud between Gulalai and Imran has blown into a full fledged "he said, she said" battle in the court of (Paki) public opinion. The ( Paki ) jury is still out as to who is believable and who is not ! :mrgreen:
PTI insiders paint a grim picture of their party’s cohesion. They speak of increasing dissent against Khattak’s leadership. While lawmakers Javid Nasim, Qurban Ali Khan, and Ikramullah Khan Gandapur had expressed grievances against his leadership, Pakistani daily Dawn recently reported that key cabinet members Atif Khan and Shahram Khan Tarakai turned against him. The two also met Khan to convey their grievances. Immy has too much on his plate now. What with Nawaz's exit, his dirty laundry (private life) being openly discussed in public , and the suspicion that he has become a poster-boy and a cheer leader for the Paki military!. The last thing he wants is an "internal party revolt"
Khattak, however, is a political survivor. He is known to frequently change political parties by often joining ruling parties. He rejects corruption allegations against himself and is confident he will survive the revolt among his party’s ranks.“Nobody can bring down my administration,” Pakistan’s Geo News TV quoted him as saying on August 7. “I was the one responsible for propping up and toppling governments [in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa].”.PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry told RFE/RL’s Gandhara that Afridi presented no evidence in support of his allegations.
The party, however, faces a bumpy road ahead in the run-up to parliamentary elections next year. Voters are likely to judge its anti-corruption rhetoric in the light of its performance in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Immy's eyes are on the PM ship at the Federal level !

The myth of economic progress
One myth that is paraded as a fact is that military rule has always ushered in an era of progress and prosperity for the country. The latest statement of the myth has been put forward by the former military ruler General (r) Pervez Musharraf.

WB links loans to liberal foreign exchange policy

ISLAMABAD: The World Bank has turned down Pakistan’s request for policy loans to cushion its dwindling foreign currency reserves and asked Islamabad to first depreciate the rupee before knocking the door for a bailout. Ilon Blothel will come to the Lescue!

The government has been facing a dilemma because the foreign exchange reserves have been falling despite continued borrowing from the international market. During the past 11 months alone the reserves have depleted by $4.2 billion.

“Due to deteriorating macroeconomic conditions of Pakistan, the lending agency cannot extend policy loans for budgetary and balance of payments support at this time,” said sources in the World Bank.

“The Washington-based lender has linked the future policy loans to a liberal foreign exchange policy,” said the sources.

They said the day the government decided to liberalise the foreign exchange policy, the bank would give the policy loan. The decision will not affect the lending for projects that has already been sanctioned.

The bank’s condition has put Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in a tight spot because he is a staunch believer in a strong rupee against the US dollar. Last month he changed the acting State Bank of Pakistan governor within 24 hours after the rupee was allowed to depreciate by 3.1% against the US dollar.

Under the current macroeconomic conditions, specially the foreign exchange policy and a rising circular debt in the power sector, the bank will not be able to provide a bailout in the shape of budgetary support, said the sources.

“It is still not too late to revise the foreign exchange regime in a manner that is conducive for boosting the exports and help cover current account deficit,” they added.

The sources said the bank has informed the Q Block – the seat of the Ministry of Finance – that the policy loans can only be provided if the government brings those corrective changes.

“The negotiations for a policy loan are underway and the World Bank does not officially communicate us about its any decision to link the loan with the depreciation of the rupee,” said an official of the finance ministry.

He said it was not the mandate of the World Bank to make such a demand. The Ministry of Finance did not officially give a version on the story.

The rupee is traded at 105.3 to a dollar in the interbank market which, according to the IMF, is overvalued by at least 10%.

Usually, the bank’s policy loans range between $300 million and $600 million that are immediately disbursed after its approval by the Board of Directors.

Child killed in Lalamusa by cars in Nawaz Sharif's motorcade

In any normal country, the following would have happened:
- The planned motorcade ride would have been cancelled
- The political leader would have apologized for the accident
- The police would have investigated the incident and filed a case against the suspect, if deemed necessary

Nothing of this sort has been mentioned in the report. This shows that nothing will happen and the "show" will proceed normally !

Sargodha mayor to ‘hire chopper to shower flowers on Nawaz rally’ :roll:

They blamed the Sargodha mayor for directing the staff of municipality, including sanitation workers, (most likely Christians converted from Hinduism !) to join the rally or they would not be given their two-month pending salary. They predicted that not more than 200 people from the district would proceed to join the rally.

Government striving to make Pakistan a tolerant society: Abbasi

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Friday said that the government is striving to make Pakistan a tolerant society where basic rights of every citizens are protected.In his message on the occasion of “Minorities Day” being observed today (August 11), he said, “We will make Pakistan a tolerant society where basic rights of every citizen are protected and all Pakistanis, Muslims or non-Muslims work collectively for progress and prosperity of the country.” IMO, this kind of "lip service" has been tried before . Now, to use a cliche, "it is too little too late". The idea of a "tolerant society where basic rights of every citizen are protected ..... " does not exist - when it comes to the crunch - in any Islamic country be it Wahabi Saudi or "moderate" Malaysia!

Nawaz Sharif contacts Asif Zardari, seeks help

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has contacted former president Asif Ali Zardari recently to defuse the tension and normalise the political situation, sources close to PPP claimed, media has reported.It was learnt that the former president was asked to support the ruling party and take out the deposed prime minister from the hot waters.
The government has shown interest in amending the law and Constitution so the deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif could return to politics.It was claimed that Asif Ali Zardari did not reply in the affirmative hastily to the request of the ruling party but blatantly asked the deposed premier Nawaz Sharif that he should openly tender his “apology” on sending Yusuf Raza Gilani home from the Prime Minister’s House. So, if this report is to be believed, Ganja wants Dus- Percenti to put the fire out for him !

IMRAN KHAN COMPARED TO ANTHONY WEINER EX HUSBAND OF PAKI-AMERICAN AND EX HILARY AIDE HUMA ABEDIN !
WEINER HAD BEEN ACCUSED OF "SEXTING" ! .
IMRAN KHAN, ACCORDING TO INSIDERS, HAS ALSO BEEN ACCUSED OF THE SAME, PER SUCH GUP -FRIDAY TIMES !!!

Sexting & its wages

Congressman Anthony Weiner won seven terms to the US Congress, representing New York’s 9th congressional district for more than a decade. He was married to a Pakistani-American, Huma Abedin, who rose to prominence as principal aide to Hillary Clinton. Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011 after the first of several sexting scandals became public. Earlier this year, he pled guilty in court to sending obscene material to an underage girl. Huma Abedin filed for divorce. Medical opinion has since diagnosed compulsive sexting as a self-destructive, hyperactive disorder for which Weiner, for one, is seeking treatment.

And as we know, a brave, outspoken woman from The Great Khan’s horde has broken ranks to reveal exactly this behavior. The Khan has been sexting her, and a many other women, according to the whistle blower. This is not the first of such allegations. Our mole says The Great Khan sexted a prominent woman politician who is now in The Man of Steel’s ranks, and also sent her objectionable images via mobile phone.

Mandal had to go. Period.


Here is Mandal's resignation letter in its entirety (I think this is legit but TIFWIW). Note his disillusionment with pakistan and the broken promises which he lists. Apologies in advance for posting the entire text.

Mandal's resignation letter:

My dear Prime Minister

It is with a heavy heart and a sense of utter frustration at the failure of my lifelong mission to uplift the backward Hindu masses of East Bengal that I feel compelled to tender resignation of my membership of your cabinet. It is proper that I should set forth in detail the reasons which have prompted me to take this decision at this important juncture of the Indo-Pakistani subcontinent. It is to share just a truth

1. Before I narrate the remote and immediate causes of my resignation, it may be useful to give a short background of the important events that have taken place during the period of my co-operation with the League. Having been approached by a few prominent League leaders of Bengal in February 1943, I agreed to work with them in the Bengal Legislative Assembly. After the fall of the Fazlul Haq ministry in March 1943, with a party of 21 Scheduled Caste M.L.A.s, I agreed to cooperate with Khwaja Nazimuddin, the then leader of the Muslim League Parliamentary Party who formed the Cabinet in April 1943. Our co-operation was conditional on certain specific terms, such as the inclusion of three Scheduled Caste Ministers in the Cabinet, sanctioning of a sum of Rupees Five Lakhs as annual recurring grant for the education of the Scheduled Castes, and the unqualified application of the communal ratio rules in the matter of appointment to Government services.

2. Apart from these terms, the principal objectives that prompted me to work in co-operation with the Muslim League was, first that the economic interests of the Muslims in Bengal were generally identical with those of the Scheduled Castes. Muslims were mostly cultivators and labourers, and so were members of the Scheduled Castes. One section of Muslims were fishermen, so was a section of the Scheduled Castes as well, and secondly that the Scheduled Castes and the Muslims were both educationally backward. I was persuaded that my co-operation with the League and its Ministry would lead to the undertaking on a wide scale of legislative and administrative measures which, while promoting the mutual welfare of the vas bulk of Bengal's population, and undermining the foundations of vested interest and privilege, would further the cause of communal peace and harmony. It may be mentioned here that Khwaja Nazimuddin took three Scheduled Caste Ministers in his cabinet and appointed three Parliamentary Secretaries from amongst the members of my community.

SUHRAWARDY MINISTRY
3. After the general elections held in March 1946 Mr. H.S.Suhrawardy became the leader of the League Parliamentary Party in March 1946 and formed the League Ministry in April 1946. I was the only Scheduled Caste member returned on the federation ticket. I was included in Mr. Suhrawardy's Cabinet. The 16th day of August of that year was observed in Calcutta as 'The Direct Action Day' by the Muslim League. It resulted, as you know, in a holocaust. Hindus demanded my resignation from the League Ministry. My life was in peril. I began to receive threatening letters almost every day. But I remained steadfast to my policy. Moreover, I issued an appeal through our journal 'Jagaran' to the Scheduled Caste people to keep themselves aloof from the bloody feud between the Congress and the Muslim League even at the risk of my life. I cannot but gratefully acknowledge the fact that I was saved from the wrath of infuriated Hindu mobs by my Caste Hindu neighbours. The Calcutta carnage was followed by the 'Noakhali Riot' in October 1946. There, Hindus including Scheduled Castes were killed and hundreds were converted to Islam. Hindu women were raped and abducted. Members of my community also suffered loss of life and property. Immediately after these happenings, I visited Tipperah and Feni and saw some riot-affected areas. The terrible sufferings of Hindus overwhelmed me with grief, but still I continued the policy of co-operation with the Muslim League. Immediately after the massive Calcutta Killing, a no-confidence motion was moved against the Suhrawardy Ministry. It was only due to my efforts that the support of four Anglo-Indian Members and of four Scheduled Caste members of the Assembly who had hitherto been with the Congress could be secured, but for which the Ministry would have been defeated.

4. In October 1946, most unexpectedly came to me through Mr. Suhrawardy the offer of a seat in the Interim Government of India. After a good deal of hesitation and being given only one hour's time to take my final decision, I consented to accept the offer subject to the condition only that I should be permitted to resign if my leader Dr. B.R. Ambedkar disapproved of my action. Fortunately, however, I received his approval in a telegram sent from London. Before I left for Delhi to take over as Law Member, I persuaded Mr. Suhrawardy, the then Chief Minister of Bengal, to agree to take two Ministers in his Cabinet in my place and to appoint two Parliamentary Secretaries from the Scheduled Case Federation Group.

5. I joined the Interim Government on November 1, 1946. After about a month when I paid a visit to Calcutta, Mr.Suhrawardy apprised me of the communal tension in some parts of East Bengal, especially in Gopalganj Sub-division, where the Namahsudras were in majority, being very high. He requested me to visit those areas and address meetings of Muslims and Namahsudras. The fact was that Namahsudras in those areas had made preparations for retaliation. I addressed about a dozen of largely attended meetings. The result was that Namahsudras gave up the idea of retaliation. Thus an inevitable dangerous communal disturbance was averted.

6. After a few months, the British Government made their June 3 Statement (1947) embodying certain proposals for the partition of India. The whole country, especially the entire non-Muslim India, was startled. For the sake of truth I must admit that I had always considered the demand of Pakistan by the Muslim League as a bargaining counter. Although I honestly felt that in the context of India as a whole Muslims had legitimate cause for grievance against upper class Hindu chauvinism, I held the view very strongly indeed that the creation of Pakistan would never solve the communal problem. On the contrary, it would aggravate communal hatred and bitterness. Besides, I maintained that it would not ameliorate the condition of Muslims in Pakistan. The inevitable result of the partition of the country would be to prolong, if not perpetuate, the poverty, illiteracy and miserable condition of the toiling masses of both the States. I further apprehended that Pakistan might turn to be one of the most backward and undeveloped countries of the South East Asia.

LAHORE RESOLUTION
7. I must make it clear that I have thought that an attempt would be made, as is being done at present, to develop Pakistan as a purely 'Islamic' State based on the Shariat and the injunctions and formulae of Islam. I presumed that it would be set up in all essentials after the pattern contemplated in the Muslim League resolution adopted at Lahore on March 23, 1940. That resolution stated inter alia that (I) "geographically contiguous areas are demarcated into regions which should be constituted with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary, that the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in majority as in the north-western and eastern zones of India, should be grouped to constitute independent States in which the Constituent units shall be autonomous and sovereign" and (II) "adequate, effective and mandatory safeguards should be specifically provided in the Constitution for minorities in these units and in these regions for the protection of their religious, cultural, political, administrative and other rights and interests in consultation with them." Implicitly in this formula were (a) that North western and eastern Muslim zones should be constituted into two independent States, (b) that the constituent units of these States should be autonomous and sovereign, (c) that minorities' guarantee should be in respect of rights as well as of interest and extend to every sphere of their lives, and (d) that Constitutional provisions should be made in these regards in consultation with the minorities themselves. I was fortified in my faith in this resolution and the professions of the League Leadership by the statement Qaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah was pleased to make on the 11th August 1947 as the President of the Constituent Assembly giving solemn assurance of equal treatment for Hindus & Muslims alike and calling upon them to remember that they were all Pakistanis. There was then no question of dividing he people on the basis of religion into full-fledged Muslim citizens and zimmies [i][1] being under the perpetual custody of the Islamic State and its Muslims citizens. Every one of these pledges is being flagrantly violated apparently to your knowledge and with your approval in complete disregard of the Qaid-e-Azam's wishes and sentiments and to the detriment and humiliation of the minorities.

PARTITION OF BENGAL
8. It may also be mentioned in this connection that I was opposed to the partition of Bengal. In launching a campaign in this regard I had to face not only tremendous resistance from all quarters but also unspeakable abuse, insult and dishonour. With great regret, I recollect those days when 32 crores of Hindus of this Indo-Pakistan Sub-continent turned their back against me and dubbed me as the enemy of Hindus and Hinduism, but I remained undaunted and unmoved in my loyalty to Pakistan. It is a matter of gratitude that my appeal to 7 million Scheduled Caste people of Pakistan evoked a ready and enthusiastic response from them. They lent me their unstinted support sympathy and encouragement.

9. After the establishment of Pakistan on August 14, 1947 you formed the Pakistan Cabinet, in which I was included and Khwaja Nazimuddin formed a provisional Cabinet for East Bengal. On August 10, I had spoken to Khwaja Nazimuddin at Karachi and requested him to take 2 Scheduled Caste Ministers in the East Bengal Cabinet. He promised to do the same sometime later. What happened subsequently in this regard was a record of unpleasant and disappointing negotiation with you, Khwaja Nazimuddin and Mr. Nurul Amin, the present Chief Minister of East Bengal. When I realised that Khwaja Nazimuddin was avoiding the issue on this or that excuse, I became almost impatient and exasperated. I further discussed the matter with the Presidents of the Pakistan Muslim League and its East Bengal Branch. Ultimately, I brought the matter to your notice. You were pleased to discuss the subject with Khwaja Nazimuddin in my presence at your residence. Khwaja Nazimuddin agreed to take one Scheduled Caste Minister on his return to Dacca. As I had already became sceptic about the assurance of Khwaja Nazimuddin, I wanted to be definite about the time-frame. I insisted that he must act in this regard with a month, failing which I should be at liberty to resign. Both you and Khwaja Nazimuddin agreed to the condition. But alas! you did not perhaps mean what you said. Khwaja Nazimuddin did not keep his promise. After Mr. Nurul Amin had became the Chief Minister of East Bengal, I again took up the matter with him. He also followed the same old familiar tactics of evasion. When I again called your attention to this matter prior to your visit to Dacca in 1949, you were pleased to assure me that Minority Ministers would be appointed in East Bengal, and you asked 2/3 names from me for consideration. In stat deference to your wish, I sent you a note stating the Federation Group in the East Bengal Assembly and suggesting three names. When I made enquiries as to what had happened on your return from Dacca, you appeared to be very cold and only remarked : "Let Nurul Amin return from Delhi". After a few days I again pressed the matter. But you avoided the issue. I was then forced to come to the conclusion that neither you not Mr. Nurul Amin had any intention to take any Scheduled Caste Minister in the East Bengal Cabinet. Apart from this, I was noticing that Mr. Nurul Amin and some League leaders of East Bengal were trying to create disruption among the Members of the Scheduled Caste Federation. It appeared to me that my leadership and wide-spread popularity were considered ominous. My outspokenness, vigilance and sincere efforts to safeguard the interests of the minorities of Pakistan, in general, and of the Scheduled Caste, in particular, were considered a matter on annoyance to the East Bengal Govt. and few League leaders. Undaunted, I took my firm stand to safeguard the interests of the minorities of Pakistan.

ANTI-HINDU POLICY
10. When the question of partition of Bengal arose, the Scheduled Caste people were alarmed at the anticipated dangerous result of partition. Representation on their behalf were made to Mr. Suhrawardy, the then Chief Minister of Bengal who was pleased to issue a statement to the press declaring that none of the rights and privileges hitherto enjoyed by the Scheduled Caste People would be curtailed after partition and that they would not only continue to enjoy the existing rights and privileges but also receive additional advantages. This assurance was given by Mr. Suhrawardy not only in his personal capacity but also in his capacity as the Chief Minister of the League Ministry. To my utter regret it is to be stated that after partition, particularly after the death of Qaid-e-Azam, the Scheduled Castes have not received a fair deal in any matter. You will recollect that from time to time I brought the grievances of the Scheduled Castes to your notice. I explained to you on several occasions the nature of inefficient administration in East Bengal. I made serious charges against the police administration. I brought to your notice incidents of barbarous atrocities perpetrated by the police on frivolous grounds. I did not hesitate to bring to your notice the anti-Hindu policy pursued by the East Bengal Government especially the police administration and a section of Muslim League leaders.

SOME INCIDENTS
11. The first incident that shocked me took place at a village called Digharkul near Gopalganj where on the false complaint of a Muslim brutal atrocities were committed on the local Namahsudras. The fact was that a Muslim who was going in a boat attempted to throw his net to catch fish. A Namahsudra who was already there for the same purpose opposed the throwing of the net in his front. This was followed by some altercation and the Muslim got annoyed and went to the nearby Muslim village and made a false complaint that he and a woman in his boat had been assaulted by the Namahsudras. At that time, the S.D.O. of Gopalganj was passing in a boat through the canal, who without making any enquiry accepted the complaint as true and sent armed police to the spot to punish the Namahsudras. The armed police came and the local Muslims also joined them. They not only raided some houses of the Namahsudras but mercilessly beat both men and women, destroyed their properties and took away valuables. The merciless beating of a pregnant women resulted in abortion on the spot. This brutal action on the part of the local authority created panic over a large area.

12. The second incidence of police oppression took place in early part of 1949 under P.S. Gournadi in the district of Barisal. Here a quarrel took place between two groups of members of a Union Board. One group which was in the good books of the police conspired against the opponents on the plea of their being Communists. On the information of a threat of attack on the Police Station, the O.C., Gournadi requisitioned armed forces from the headquarters. The Police, helped by the armed forces, then raided a large number of houses in the area, took away valuable properties, even from the house of absentee-owners who were never in politics, far less in the Communist Party. A large number of persons over a wide area were arrested. Teachers and students of many High English Schools were Communist suspects and unnecessarily harassed. This area being very near to my native village, I was informed of the incident. I wrote to the District Magistrate and the S.P. for an enquiry. A section of the local people also prayed for an enquiry by the S.D.O. But no enquiry was held. Even my letters to the District authorities were not acknowledged. I then brought this matter to the notice of the highest Authority in Pakistan, including yourself but to no avail.

WOMEN FOR MILITARY
13. The atrocities perpetrated by the police and the military on the innocent Hindus, especially the Scheduled Castes of Habibgarh in the District of Sylhet deserve description. Innocent men and women were brutally tortured, some women ravished, their houses raided and properties looted by the police and the local Muslims. Military pickets were posted in the area. The military not only oppressed these people and took away stuff forcibly from Hindu houses, but also forced Hindus to send their women-folk at night to the camp to satisfy the carnal desires of the military. This fact also I brought to your notice. You assured me of a report on the matter, but unfortunately no report was forthcoming.

14. Then occurred the incident at the Nachole in the District of Rajshahi where in the name of suppression of Communists not only the police but also the local Muslims in collaboration with the police oppressed the Hindus and looted their properties. The Santhals then crossed the border and came over to West Bengal. They narrated the stories of atrocities wantonly committed by the Muslims and the police.

15. An instance of callous and cold-blooded brutality is furnished by the incident that took place on December 20, 1949 in Kalshira under P.S. Mollarhat in the District of Khulna. What happened was that late at night four constables raided the house of one Joydev Brahma in village Kalshira in search of some alleged Communists. At the scent of the police, half a dozen of young men, some of whom might have been Communists, escaped from the house. The police constable entered into the house and assaulted the wife of Joydev Brahma whose cry attracted her husband and a few companions who escaped from the house. They became desperate, re-entered the house, found 4 constables with one gun only. That perhaps might have encouraged the young men who struck a blow on an armed constable who died on the spot. The young men then attacked another constable when the other two ran away and raised alarm which attracted some neighbouring people who came to their rescue. As the incident took place before sunrise when it was dark, the assailants fled with the dead body before the villagers could come. The S.P. of Khulna with a contingent of military and armed police appeared on the scene in the afternoon of the following day. In the meantime, the assailants fled and the intelligent neighbours also fled away. But the bulk of the villagers remained in their houses as they were absolutely innocent and failed to realise the consequence of the happening. Subsequently, the S.P., the military and armed police began to beat mercilessly the innocents of the entire village, encouraged the neighbouring Muslims to take away their properties. A number of persons were killed and men and women were forcibly converted. House-hold deities were broken and places of worship desecrated and destroyed. Several women were raped by the police, military and local Muslims. Thus a veritable hell was let loose not only in the village of Kalshira which is 1-1/2 miles in length with a large population, but also in a number of neighbouring Namahsudra villages. The village Kalshira was never suspected by the authority to be a place of Communist activities. Another village called Jhalardanga, which was at a distance of 3 miles from Kalshira, was known to be a centre of Communist activities. This village was raided by a large contingent of police on that day for hunt of the alleged Communists, a number of whom fled away and took shelter in the aforesaid house of village Kalshira which was considered to be a safe place for them.

16. I visited Kalshira and one or two neighbouring villages on the 28th February 1950. The S.P., Khulna and some of the prominent League leaders of the district were with me. When I came to the village Kalshira, I found the place desolate and in ruins. I was told in the presence of S.P. that there were 350 homesteads in this village, of these, only three had been spared and the rest had been demolished. Country boats and heads of cattle belonging to the Namasudras had been all taken away. I reported these facts to the Chief Minister, Chief Secretary and Inspector of General of Police of East Bengal and to you.

17. It may be mentioned in this connection that the news of this incident was published in West Bengal Press and this created some unrest among the Hindus there. A number of sufferers of Kalshira, both men and women, homeless and destitute had also come to Calcutta and narrated the stories of their sufferings which resulted in some communal disturbances in West Bengal in the last part of January.

CAUSES OF THE FEBRUARY DISTURBANCE
18. It must be noted that stories of a few incidents of communal disturbance that took place in West Bengal as a sort of repercussion of the incidents at Kalshira were published in exaggerated form in he East Bengal press. In the second week of February 1950 when the Budget Session of the East Bengal Assembly commenced, the Congress Members sought permission to move two adjournment motions to discuss the situation created at Kalshira and Nachole. But the motions were disallowed. The Congress members walked out of the Assembly in protest. This action of the Hindu members of the Assembly annoyed and enraged not only the Ministers but also the Muslim leaders and officials of the Province. This was perhaps one of the principal reasons for Dacca and East Bengal riots in February 1950.

19. It is significant that on February 10, 1950 at about 10 o'clock in the morning a woman was painted with red to show that her breast was cut off in Calcutta riot, and was taken round the East Bengal Secretariat at Dacca. Immediately the Government servants of the Secretariat stuck work and came out in procession raising slogans of revenge against the Hindus. The procession began to swell as it passed over a distance of more than a mile. It ended in a meeting at Victoria Park at about 12 o'clock in the noon where violent speeches against the Hindus were delivered by several speakers, including officials. The fun of the whole show was that while the employees of the Secretariat went out of procession, the Chief Secretary of the East Bengal Government was holding a conference with his West Bengal counterpart in the same building to find out ways and means to stop communal disturbances in the two Bengals.

OFFICIALS HELPED LOOTERS
20. The riot started at about 1 p.m. simultaneously all over the city. Arson, looting of Hindu shops and houses and killing of Hindus, wherever they were found, commenced in full swing in all parts of the city. I got evidence even from the Muslims that arson and looting were committed even in the presence of high police officials. Jewellery shops belonging to the Hindus were looted in the presence of police officers. They not only did not attempt to stop loot, but also helped the looters with advice and direction. Unfortunately for me, I reached Dacca at 5 o'clock in the afternoon on the same day, in February10, 1950. To my utter dismay, I had occasion to see and know things from close quarters. What I saw and learnt from firsthand information was simply staggering and heart-rending.

BACKGROUND OF THE RIOT
21. The reasons for the Dacca riot were mainly five:

(i) To punish the Hindus for the daring action of their representatives in the Assembly in their expression of protest by walking out of the Assembly when two adjournment motions on Kalshira and Nachole affairs were disallowed.

(ii) Dissension and differences between the Suhrawardy Group and the Nazimuddin Group in the Parliamentary Party were becoming acute.

(iii) Apprehension of launching of a movement for re-union of East and West Bengal by both Hindu and Muslim leaders made the East Bengal Ministry and the Muslim League nervous. They wanted to prevent such a move. They though that any large-scale communal riot in East Bengal was sure to produce reactions in West Bengal where Muslims might be killed. The result of such riots in both East and West Bengal, it was believed, would prevent any movement for re-union of Bengals.

(iv) Feeling of antagonism between the Bengali Muslims and non-Bengali Muslims in East Bengal was gaining ground. This could only be prevented by creating hatred between Hindus and Muslims of East Bengal. The language question was also connected with it and

(v) The consequences of non-devaluation and the Indo-Pakistan trade deadlock to the economy of East Bengal were being felt most acutely first in urban and rural areas and the Muslim League members and officials wanted to divert the attention of the Muslim masses from the impending economic breakdown by some sort of Jihad against Hindus.

STAGGERING DETAILS - NEARLY 10,000 KILLED
22. During my nine days' stay at Dacca, I visited most of the riot-affected areas of the city and suburbs. I visited Mirpur also under P.S. Tejgaon. The news of the killing of hundreds of innocent Hindus in trains, on railway lines between Dacca and Narayanganj, and Dacca and Chittagong gave me the rudest shock. On the second day of Dacca riot, I met the Chief Minister of East Bengal and requested him to issue immediate instructions to the District authorities to take all precautionary measures to prevent spreading of the riot in district towns and rural areas. On the 20th February 1950, I reached Barisal town and was astounded to know of the happenings in Barisal. In the District town, a number of Hindu houses were burnt and a large number of Hindus killed. I visited almost all riot-affected areas in the District. I was simply puzzled to find the havoc wrought by the Muslim rioters even at places like Kasipur, Madhabpasha and Lakutia which were within a radius of six miles from the District town and were connected with motorable roads. At the Madhabpasha Zamindar's house, about 200 people were killed and 40 injured. A place, called Muladi, witnessed a dreadful hell. At Muladi Bandar alone, the number killed would total more than three hundred, as was reported to me by the local Muslims including some officers. I visited Muladi village also, where I found skeletons of dead bodies at some places. I found dogs and vultures eating corpses on he river-side. I got the information there that after the whole-scale killing of all adult males, all the young girls were distributed among the ringleaders of the miscreants. At a place called Kaibartakhali under P.S. Rajapur, 63 persons were killed. Hindu houses within a stone's throw distance from the said thana office were looted, burnt and inmates killed. All Hindu shops of Babuganj Bazar were looted and then burnt and a large number of Hindus were killed. From detailed information received, the conservative estimate of casualties was placed at 2,500 killed in the District of Barisal alone. Total casualties of Dacca and East Bengal riot were estimated to be in the neighbourhood of 10,000 killed. The lamentation of women and children who had lost their all including near and dear ones melted my heart. I only asked myself "What was coming to Pakistan in the name of Islam."

NO EARNEST DESIRE TO IMPLEMENT DELHI PACT
23. The large scale exodus of Hindus from Bengal commenced in the latter part of March. It appeared that within a short time all the Hindus would migrate to India. A war cry was raised in India. The situation became extremely critical. A national calamity appeared to be inevitable. The apprehended disaster, however, was avoided by the Delhi Agreement of April 8. With a view to reviving the already lost morale of the panicky Hindus, I undertook an extensive tour of East Bengal. I visited a number of places of the districts of Dacca, Barisal, Faridpur, Khulna and Jessore. I addressed dozens of largely attended meetings and asked the Hindus to take courage and not to leave their ancestral hearths and homes. I had this expectation that the East Bengal Govt. and Muslim League leaders would implement the terms of the Delhi Agreement. But with the lapse of time, I began to realise that neither the East Bengal Govt. nor the Muslim League leaders were really earnest in the matter of implementation of the Delhi Agreement. The East Bengal Govt. was not only ready to set up a machinery as envisaged in the Delhi Agreement, but also was not willing to take effective steps for the purpose. A number of Hindus who returned to native village immediately after the Delhi Agreement were not given possession of their homes and lands which were occupied in the meantime by the Muslims.

MOULANA AKRAM KHAN'S INCITATIONS
24. My suspicion about the intention of League leaders was confirmed when I read editorial comments by Moulana Akram Khan, the President of the Provincial Muslim League in the "Baisak" issue of a monthly journal called 'Mohammadi'. In commenting on the first radio-broadcast of Dr.A.M.Malik, Minister for Minority Affairs of Pakistan, from Dacca Radio Station, wherein he said, "Even Prophet Mohammed had given religious freedom to the Jews in Arabia", Moulana Akram Khan said, "Dr.Malik would have done well had he not made any reference in his speech to the Jews of Arabia. It is true that the Jews in Arabia had been given religious freedom by Prophet Mohammed; but it was the first chapter of the history. The last chapter contains the definite direction of prophet Mohammed which runs as follows:- "Drive away all the Jews out of Arabia". Even despite this editorial comment of a person who held a very high position in the political, social and spiritual life of the Muslim community, I entertained some expectation that the Nurul Amin Ministry might not be so insincere. But that expectation of mine was totally shattered when Mr.Nurul Amin selected D.N.Barari as a Minister to represent the minorities in terms of the Delhi Agreement which clearly states that to restore confidence in the minds of the minorities one of their representatives will be taken in the Ministry of East Bengal and West Bengal Govt.

NURUL AMIN GOVERNMENT'S INSINCERITY
25. In one of my public statement, I expressed the view that the appointment of D.N.Barari as a Minister representing the minorities not only did not help restore any confidence, but, on the contrary, destroyed all expectations illusions, if there was any in the minds of the minorities about the sincerity of Mr.Nurul Amin's Govt. My own reaction was that Mr.Nurul Amin's Govt. was not only insincere but also wanted to defeat the principal objectives of the Delhi Agreement. I again repeat that D.N.Barari does not represent anybody except himself. He was returned to the Bengal Legislature Assembly on the Congress ticket with the money and organisation of the Congress. He opposed the Scheduled Caste Federation candidates. Some time after his election, he betrayed the Congress and joined the Federation. When he was appointed a Minister he had ceased to be a member of the Federation too. I know that East Bengal Hindus agree with me that by antecedents, character and intellectual attainments Barari is not qualified to hold the position of a Minister as envisaged in the Delhi Agreement.

26. I recommended three names to Mr.Nurul Amin for this office. One of the persons I recommended was an MA.,LL.B., Advocate, Dacca High Court. He was Minister for more than 4 years in the first Fazlul Huq Ministry in Bengal. He was chairman of the Coal Mines Stowing Board, Calcutta, for about 6 years. He was the senior Vice-President of the Scheduled Caste Federation. My second nominee was a B.A., LL.B. He was a member of the Legislative Council for 7 years in the pre-reform regime. I would like to know what earthly reasons there might be for Mr.Nurul Amin in not selecting any of these two gentlemen and appointing instead a person whose appointment as Minister I strongly objected to for very rightly considerations. Without any fear of contradiction I can say that this action of Mr.Nurul Amin in selecting Barari as a Minister in terms of the Delhi Agreement is conclusive proof that the East Bengal Govt. was neither serious nor sincere in its professions about the terms of the Delhi Agreement whose main purpose is to create such conditions as would enable the Hindus to continue to live in East Bengal with a sense of security to their life, property, honour and religion.

GOVERNMENT PLAN TO SQUEEZE OUT HINDUS
27. I would like to reiterate in this connection my firm conviction that East Bengal Govt. is still following the well-planned policy of squeezing Hindus out of the Province. in my discussion with you on more than one occasion, I gave expression to this view of mine. I must say that this policy of driving out Hindus from Pakistan has succeeded completely in West Pakistan and is nearing completion in East Pakistan too. The appointment of D.N.Barari as a Minister and the East Bengal Government's unceremonious objection to my recommendation in this regard strictly conform to name of what they call an Islamic State. Pakistan has not given the Hindus entire satisfaction and a full sense of security. They now want to get rid of the Hindu intelligentsia so that the political, economic and social life of Pakistan may not in any way be influenced by them.

EVASIVE TACTICS TO SHELVE JOINT ELECTORATE
28. I have failed to understand why the question of electorate has not yet been decided. It is now three years that the minority Sub-Committee has been appointed. It sat on three occasions. The question of having joint or separation electorate came up for consideration at a meting of the Committee held in December last when all the representatives of recognised minorities in Pakistan expressed their view in support of Joint Electorate with reservation of seats for backward minorities. We, on behalf of the Scheduled Castes, demanded joint electorate with reservation of seats for Scheduled Castes. This matter again came up for consideration at a meeting called in August last. But without any discussion whatsoever on this point, the meeting was adjourned sine die. It is not difficult to understand what the motive is behind this kind of evasive tactics in regard to such a vital matter on the part of Pakistan's rulers.

DISMAL FUTURE FOR HINDUS
29. Coming now to the present condition and the future of Hindus in East Bengal as a result of the Delhi Agreement, I should say that the present condition is not only unsatisfactory but absolutely hopeless and that the future completely dark and dismal. Confidence of Hindus in East Bengal has not been restored in the least. The Agreement is treated as a mere scrap of paper alike by the East Bengal Government and the Muslim League. That a pretty large number of Hindus migrants, mostly Scheduled Caste cultivators are returning to East Bengal is no indication that confidence has been restored. It only indicates that their stay and rehabilitation in West Bengal, or elsewhere in the Indian Union have not been possible. The sufferings of refugee life are compelling them to go back to their homes. Besides, many of them are going back to bring movable articles and settle or dispose of immovable properties. That no serious communal disturbance has recently taken place in East Bengal is not to be attributed to the Delhi Agreement. It could not simply continue even if there were no Agreement or Pact.

30. It must be admitted that the Delhi Pact was not an end in itself. It was intended that such conditions would be created as might effectively help resolve so many disputes and conflict existing between India and Pakistan. But during this period of six months after the Agreement, no dispute or conflict has really been resolved. On the contrary, communal propaganda and anti-India propaganda by Pakistan both at home and abroad are continuing in full swing. The observance of Kashmir Day by the Muslim League all over Pakistan is an eloquent proof of communal anti-India propaganda by Pakistan. The recent speech of the Governor of Punjab (Pak) saying that Pakistan needed a strong Army for the security of Indian Muslims has betrayed the real attitude of Pakistan towards India. It will only increase the tension between the two countries.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN EAST BENGAL TODAY
31. What is today the condition in East Bengal? About fifty lakhs of Hindus have left since the partition of the country. Apart from the East Bengal riot of last February, the reasons for such a large scale exodus of Hindus are many. The boycott by the Muslims of Hindu lawyers, medical practitioners, shop-keepers, traders and merchants has compelled Hindus to migrate to West Bengal in search of their means of livelihood. Wholesale requisition of Hindu houses even without following due process of law in many and non-payment of any rent whatsoever to the owners have compelled them to seek for Indian shelter. Payments of rent to Hindu landlords was stopped long before. Besides, the Ansars against whom I received complaints all over are a standing menace to the safety and security of Hindus. Inference in matters of education and methods adopted by the Education Authority for Islamisation frightened the teaching staff of Secondary Schools and Colleges out of their old familiar moorings. They have left East Bengal. As a result, most of the educational institutions have been closed. I have received information that sometime ago the Educational Authority issued circular in Secondary Schools enjoining compulsory participation of teachers and students of all communities in recitation from the Holy Koran before the school work commenced. Another circular requires Headmasters of schools to name the different blocks of the premises after 12 distinguished Muslims, such as, Jinnah, Iqbal, Liaquat Ali, Nazimuddin, etc. Only very recently in an educational conference held at Dacca, the President disclosed that out of 1,500 High English Schools in East Bengal, only 500 were working. Owing to the migration of Medical Practitioners there is hardly any means of proper treatment of patients. Almost all the priests who used to worship the household deities at Hindu houses have left. Important places of worship have been abandoned. The result is that the Hindus of East Bengal have got now hardly any means to follow religious pursuits and performance of social ceremonies like marriage where the services of a priest are essential. Artisans who made images of gods and goddesses have also left. Hindu Presidents of Union Boards have been replaced by Muslims by coercive measures with the active help and connivance of the police and Circle Officers. Hindu Headmasters and Secretaries of Schools have been replaced by Muslims. The Life of the few Hindu Govt. servants has been made extremely miserable as many of them have either been superseded by junior Muslims or dismissed without sufficient or any cause. Only very recently a Hindu Public Prosecutor of Chittagong was arbitrarily removed from service as has been made clear in a statement made by Srijukta Nellie Sengupta against whom at least no change of anti-Muslim bias prejudice or malice can be leveled.

HINDUS VIRTUALLY OUTLAWED
32. Commission of thefts and dacoities even with murder is going on as before. Thana offices seldom record half the complaints made by the Hindus. That the abduction and rape of Hindu girls have been reduced to a certain extent is due only to the fact that there is no Caste Hindu girl between the ages of 12 and 30 living in East Bengal at present. The few depressed class girls who live in rural areas with their parents are not even spared by Muslim goondas. I have received information about a number of incidents of rape of Scheduled Caste Girls by Muslims. Full payment is seldom made by Muslims buyers for the price of jute and other agricultural commodities sold by Hindus in market places. As a matter of fact, there is no operation of law, justice or fair-play in Pakistan, so far as Hindus are concerned.

FORCED CONVERSIONS IN WEST PAKISTAN
33. Leaving aside the question of East Pakistan, let me now refer to West Pakistan, especially Sind. The West Punjab had after partition about a lakh of Scheduled Castes people. It may be noted that a large number of them were converted to Islam. Only 4 out of a dozen Scheduled Castes girls abducted by Muslims have yet been recovered in spite of repeated petitions to the Authority. Names of those girls with names of their abductors were supplied to the government. The last reply recently given by the Officer-in-Charge of recovery of abducted girls said that "his function was to recover Hindu girls and 'Achhuts' (Scheduled Castes) were not Hindus". The condition of the small number of Hindus that are still living in Sind and Karachi, the capital of Pakistan, is simply deplorable. I have got a list of 363 Hindu temples and gurdwaras of Karachi and Sind (which is by no means an exhaustive list) which are still in possession of Muslims. Some of the temples have been converted into cobbler's shops, slaughter houses and hotels. None of the Hindus has got back. Possession of their landed properties were taken away from them without any notice and distributed amongst refugees and local Muslims. I personally know that 200 to 300 Hindus were declared non-evacuees by the Custodian a pretty long time ago. But up till now properties have no been restored to any one of them. Even the possession of Karachi Pinjirapole[ii][2] has not been restored to the trustees, although it was declared non-evacuee property sometime ago. In Karachi I had received petitions from many unfortunate fathers and husbands of abducted Hindu girls, mostly Scheduled Castes. I drew the attention of the 2nd Provisional Government to this fact. There was little or no effect. To my extreme regret I received information that a large number of Scheduled Castes who are still living in Sind have been forcibly converted to Islam.

PAKISTAN 'ACCURSED' FOR HINDUS
34. Now this being in brief the overall picture of Pakistan so far as the Hindus are concerned, I shall not be unjustified in stating that Hindus of Pakistan have to all intents and purposes been rendered "Stateless" in their own houses. They have no other fault than that they profess the Hindu religion. Declarations are being repeatedly made by Muslim League leaders that Pakistan is and shall be an Islamic State. Islam is being offered as the sovereign remedy for all earthly evils. In the matchless dialectics of capitalism and socialism you present the exhilarating democratic synthesis of Islamic equality and fraternity. In that grand setting of the Shariat Muslims alone are rulers while Hindus and other minorities are zimmies who are entitled to protection at price, and you know more than anybody else Mr.Prime Minister, what that price is. After anxious and prolonged struggle I have come to the conclusion that Pakistan is no place for Hindus to live in and that their future is darkened by the ominous shadow of conversion or liquidation. The bulk of the upper class Hindus and politically conscious scheduled castes have left East Bengal. Those Hindus who will continue to stay accursed in Pakistan will, I am afraid, by gradual stages and in a planned manner be either converted to Islam or completely exterminated. It is really amazing that a man of your education, culture and experience should be an exponent of a doctrine fraught with so great a danger to humanity and subversive of all principles of equality and good sense. I may tell you and your fellow workers that Hindus will allow themselves, whatever the treat or temptation, to be treated as Zimmies in the land of their birth. Today they may, as indeed many of them have already done, abandon their hearths and homes in sorrow but in panic. Tomorrow they strive for their rightful place in the economy of life. Who knows what is in the womb of the future ? When I am convinced that my continuance in office in the Pakistan Central Government is not of any help to Hindus I should not with a clear conscience, create the false impression in the minds of the Hindus of Pakistan and peoples abroad that Hindus can live there with honour and with a sense of security in respect of their life, property and religion. This is about Hindus.

NO CIVIL LIBERTY EVEN FOR MUSLIMS
35. And what about the Muslims who are outside the charmed circle of the League rulers and their corrupt and inefficient bureaucracy ? There is hardly anything called civil liberty in Pakistan . Witness for example, the fate of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan than whom a more devout Muslim had not walked this earth for many years and of his gallant patriotic brother Dr. Khan Sahib. A large number of erstwhile League leaders of the Northwest and also of the Eastern belt of Pakistan are in detention without trial. Mr. Suhrawardy to whom is due in a large measure the League's triumph in Bengal is for practical purpose a Pakistani prisoner who has to move under permit and open his lips under orders. Mr. Fazlul Haq, that dearly loved grand old man of Bengal, who was the author of that now famous Lahore resolution, is ploughing his lonely furrow in the precincts of the Dacca High Court of Judicature, and the so called Islamic planning is as ruthless as it is complete. About the East Bengal Muslims general, the less said the better. They were promised of autonomous and sovereign units of the independent State. What have they got instead ? East Bengal has been transformed into a colony of the western belt of Pakistan, although it contained a population which is larger than that of all the units of Pakistan put together. It is a pale ineffective adjunct of Karachi doing the latter's bidding and carrying out its orders. East Bengal Muslims in their enthusiasm wanted bread and they have by the mysterious working of the Islamic State and the Shariat got stone instead from the arid deserts of Sind and the Punjab.

MY OWN SAD AND BITTER EXPERIENCE
36. Leaving aside the overall picture of Pakistan and the callous and cruel injustice done to others, my own personal experience is no less sad, bitter and revealing. You used your position as the Prime Minister and leader of the Parliamentary Party to ask me to issue a statement, which I did on the 8th September last. You know that I was not willing to make a statement containing untruths and half truths, which were worse that untruths. It was not possible for me to reject your request so long as I was there working as a Minister with you and under your leadership. But I can no longer afford to carry this load of false pretensions and untruth on my conscience and I have decided to offer my resignation as your Minister, which I am hereby placing in your hands and which, I hope, you will accept without delay. You are of course at liberty to dispense with that office or dispose of it in such a manner as may suit adequately and effectively the objectives of your Islamic State.

Yours sincerely,
Sd./- J.N. Mandal
8th October 1950

Sunni Terrorist Fragments of Unstable Pakistan - June 20, 2017

Afghan policy review incorporates India too,' says US, hinting at getting tough on Pakistan

NEW DELHI: In another sign that Washington is thinking of getting tough on Pakistan and terror, the US said on Friday that the ongoing review of its Afghanistan policy incorporates India and the whole South Asian region.

This assertion by the US is noteworthy, because of all the speculation that's coming out of Washington, the one that has gained the most traction is that the US is strongly considering cracking the whip on India's neighbour Pakistan on the issue of terror, something New Delhi has been demanding for a while now.

In addition to US President Donald Trump, several US lawmakers and diplomats have publicly talked of the need for Islamabad to crack down on terror safe havens in Pakistan and terror acts in Afghanistan and India being plotted on Pakistani soil.

"We are looking at this as not just a solution to Afghanistan, but also a broader concern that incorporates India and Pakistan as well as a regional solution," said US state department spokeswoman Heather Nauert in a press briefing.
She acknowledged that the US's Afghan policy review is an issue "a lot of people are very curious about".

Last month, US defence secretary James Mattis said the ongoing review of the US's Afghanistan strategy is "hard" because it has to be "wrapped into a regional context" that involves Pakistan.

When he was specifically asked whether it is " the diplomatic angle...the Pakistan angle " that was complicating matters, he acknowledged it is.

On a question about the India-China border standoff in Doklam, Nauert reiterated what she's said before, made sure to mention that the US has relationships with both India and China and was careful to not take sides.

"...we have relationships with both governments. We continue to encourage both parties to sit down and have conversations about that," said the US state department spokeswoman.

She added that the India-China border standoff is a situation the US is "closely following" since it began June 16.

Paki Columnist Expresses Concern Over Internet Connection Reliability And China Style Internet Censorship

The day the internet broke
Khuldune Shahid

On August 5, IMEWE, one of six international underwater cables responsible for bringing internet to Pakistan, was cut near Jeddah. With SEAMEWE 4 and TW1 already offline due to technical issues, the internet went down throughout the country.
Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), that regulates IMEWE and SEAMEWE 4, along with SEAMEWE 3—with the rest managed by Transworld Associates (TWA)—experienced choked bandwidth. “We require an NoC from the Ministry of Defence to allow work on any underwater cable,” ( Fear of RAA :roll: ) said a PTCL official. “It took us a month to get that for the cable that had been broken for a while.”
According to experts, cables can routinely develop faults. “There are land cables, sea cables and there are satellite links as well. It’s normal for there to be cuts in the cables,” said Khurram Ali Mehran, the PR director at the regulatory Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA). “The traffic is then rerouted elsewhere, which takes time.”
With IMEWE, SEAMEWE 4 and TW1 offline, most of the data burden fell on the newly inaugurated 25,000km AAE-1, which started working July 2. “Such alternatives are critical. Government organisations and the Armed forces do not lose their connections, because they already have backup from TWA,” the TWA official said. “That’s the sort of mechanism that we need to devise for the rest of the country as well.” Hope the Foreign Cable Companies are demanding 100% upfront payment from the insolvent Pakis , before they "open the "internet pipeline" :D
Khurram Ali Mehran reiterates that work is already in progress. “There was a time when Pakistan only had one cable coming, now there are alternatives available. There is another cable coming from China to Rawalpindi.” The $44 million Pakistan-China Optical Fiber Cable Project, a part of CPEC, which includes an 820km long cable between Rawalpindi and Khunjrab will be inaugurated in two years. ( Chini blothel to the rescue !)
Much like other projects affiliated with the corridor, the overarching influence of Beijing is generating concern among rights groups. “Knowing China’s track record on surveillance and tight control over the internet through censorship, it is imperative that the Pakistani government makes transparent the terms of reference of this new proposed cable via China,” says Usama Khilji, director of Bolo Bhi. The long term plan, Pakistan is working towards is to emulate China style internet censorship, to protect "Malsi" and the so-called Paki Ideology !
“Nevertheless, this poses a further threat to internet freedom in Pakistan, especially after the introduction of the draconian PECA 16 (cybercrime law) that we see is being used to silence political dissent apart from its necessary use for punishing harassment over the Internet.” ( Chini input on this was most likely sought !)
However, Khurram Ali Mehran says linking a technical question to freedom of expression is ‘bizarre’.“China’s help in constructing the optical fibre cable is like a building a pipe that allows the flow of water – or a gas pipeline if you will,” he says. “What you do with the gas or water is your business.”

MARTIALAW!! Mubarak ho!

Pakistan's population augments to 210.31 million

As per provisional results of much-delayed sixth population census, Pakistan has amassed a population of 210.31 million, thus registering an increase of 70.87 million since 1998, reported Roznama Dunya on Friday.
If population of Azad and Jammu Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan is also included, then figures augment to mammoth 210.90 million.
When approached for confirmation, Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) neither declined nor confirmed the news.


OK, who had 210 M? I will have to check my previous posts. Also, didn't some paki claim that KPK could not be fully counted because of raddi-und-fasad?

210 million bhooka-nangas. That $300 Bn economy is all of a sudden looking might thin on a per capita basis. That water sharing agreement with the evil yindoos may have to be revisited. This does not bode too well for the region. Paki population grew by an annual rate of 2.2% from 1998 to 2017.

By 2050, at this rate, there will be 430 yahoos running around in that benighted land with fewer and fewer jobs, and lesser and lesser water to farm out. SeePack is the only answer. I hear xinjiang is so severely underpopulated, has plenty of land and water, and its already malsic. Who said SeePack highway was a one way street.

Trump Advisor Steve Bannon "Bad Mouths" Pakistan On His 1979 "Fictitious Stop" In Karachi According To This American Author.

Steve Bannon’s Tall Tale About How He Visited Pakistan in the Navy and Saw the Muslim Threat

Peter Maass

Aug 11,2017

If you ask Steve Bannon how he got the idea that Muslims in the Middle East are a civilizational threat to America, he will say that his eyes were first opened when he served on a Navy destroyer in the Arabian Sea. At least that’s what he told the journalist Joshua Green, whose new book about President Donald Trump’s senior counselor is a best-seller.“It was not hard to see, as a junior officer, sitting there, that [the threat] was just going to be huge,” Bannon said. He went on:
We’d pull into a place like Karachi, Pakistan – this is 1979, and I’ll never forget it – the British guys came on board, because they still ran the port. The city had 10 million people at the time. We’d get out there, and 8 million of them had to be below the age of fifteen. It was an eye-opener. We’d been other places like the Philippines where there was mass poverty. But it was nothing like the Middle East. It was just a complete eye-opener. It was the other end of the earth. That’s Bannon’s version. There are a few problems with it, however.
The port of Karachi was not run by the British in 1979. Karachi, which is the commercial hub of Pakistan, had a population that was well short of 10 million (it was about half that) and is not usually considered part of the Middle East. But the biggest problem is that the destroyer Bannon served on, the USS Paul F. Foster, never visited Karachi while Bannon was aboard. According to this author, Bannon made all this up !
Six sailors who served on the Foster with Bannon told The Intercept that the vessel did not stop at Karachi during its 1979-1980 deployment. The recollections of these enlisted men and officers are supported by the ship’s deck logs, which show no stop on the way to the Arabian Sea and are available to the public at the National Archives. And a map of the Foster’s port calls that was published in its “cruisebook” shows stops in Hawaii, Guam, the Philippines, Christmas Island, Hong Kong, and Singapore — but not Karachi.It turns out that Bannon, who has drawn a large amount of criticism for his exclusionary stances on race, religion, and immigration, has also inaccurately described his military service, simultaneously creating an erroneous narrative of how he came to an incendiary anti-Muslim worldview that helps shape White House policy. This author, of course implies that the "Muslim Threat" is exaggerated !
It’s not clear whether Bannon’s account of visiting Karachi is an intentional fabrication or a false memory that reflects his subconscious fears, or something else entirely. Whatever the reason, it raises a lot of questions. Bannon did not respond to several inquiries from The Intercept. A close friend of Bannon’s who is in regular contact with him, and spoke on the condition of not being named, said Bannon had not read Green’s book and that the quotes attributed to him had not been checked with him. Green, the author, told The Intercept that the interview with Bannon occurred in 2015 and was recorded and transcribed. Whatever may be the merits of this, important to know that Islamic Threat is real, although the Bannon trip might be "imaginary" :mrgreen:

Ummah Qatar Treats Pakis "Like Dirt" :mrgreen:

Qatar prefers India to Pakistan for 80 visa free countries list

According to this Paki paper write up , India makes it to the "A" List . Pakistan is not even on the "B" List, but is downgraded to the "C" List .
So much so for Ummah brotherhood . !
