Judge ( Who is supposed to be "neutral" !) Fights On Behalf Of Hafiz- Suar :roll:

Can India declare it’s citizen terrorist on Pakistan desire, then why Hafiz Saeed

Lahore: A Pakistan court has said that it would end the house arrest of terrorist leader Hafiz Saeed, blamed for the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, if the government doesn't submit evidence against him, IANS has reported.
The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief and his four aides were placed under house arrest in January under the Anti-Terrorism Act. The Lahore High Court (LHC) heard the appeal against Saeed's detention on Tuesday. However, the Interior Secretary who was expected to bring the documents related to Saeed's detention failed to appear before the court, ( was probably "ordered" not to appear or else....!) the Pakistan media reported.
Expressing annoyance over the Interior Secretary's absence, Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi said: "No one could be detained for a long time merely on the basis of newspaper clippings."He said it was the obligation of the government to protect the basic rights of people. Are judges allowed to make comments like this . But this is Pakistan !!!
Saeed's advocate AK Dogar said the JuD leaders had been detained merely on the basis of allegations, without any substantial evidence against them, and the extension of the detention was illegal and a violation of basic rights. Requesting the court to declare the detention null and void, he contended that the JuD chief and other leaders had been detained because of pressure from the US government.In previous proceedings, the Punjab home department stated in a report submitted in connection with the petition filed by the JuD chief against his detention that if he was released, his activities would pose a serious threat to public safety and public order.
Saeed is accused by India of masterminding the Mumbai terror attack of November 2008 which left 166 Indians and foreigners dead. New Delhi has repeatedly urged Islamabad to punish him for the massacre. Now that he and his party have been "drycleaned" in a brand new incarnation by the Deep State, there is no reason for him to languish in jail :twisted:

Paki Doctors Brazenly Violate Confidentiality And Professional Ethics By Posting Video On Facebook :shock:

Outrage as Doctors in Bahawalpur Share a C-Section Video on Facebook

A few days ago, a doctor was suspended for taking selfies during a delivery operation in a hospital in Mandi Bahauddin.A two-member committee was formed by the Punjab Health department on the matter and the doctor involved was suspended but the committee failed to submit a complete report. From the media reports ( some, I admit may be sensationalized! )it seems that the whole country is "going to the dogs" :mrgreen:
A similar incident has again taken place in Bahawalpur. The media was all over the case and uncovered that the doctors and other staff members filmed the video of the cesarean section operation during delivery.The video was later on posted on a Facebook page. The incident took place in the Tehsil Headquarter hospital of Ahmed Pur Sharqia of Bahawalpur.The woman’s family is angry at the doctors and want the authorities to take stern action against them for sharing such a video without their permission. Hope that some of these so called doctors are rigorously screened before they are "allowed" to train and practice their profession in Bartania and Massaland :mrgreen:
People are enraged about the video and showed their anger on social media sites. They believe that it was a complete violation of the patient’s privacy. [b]Many religious scholars also condemned this act and called it unethical. :twisted: Maulana Diesel himself, once was a victim of this violation see below
[/b]

Doctor Suspended For Violating Maulana Fazl's Privacy :D

Dar In State Of Denial ! Denies! Denies! Denies! In Face Of Overwhelming Evidence Of Ill-Gotten Wealth :twisted:

Assets reference: NAB witness provides detail of Ishaq Dar’s bank accounts to court

ISLAMABAD – Finance Minister Ishaq Dar on Thursday reached accountability court to attend hearing of a reference related to assets beyond means filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). This is the same body which is going after the ( not so!) Sharif family
Judge Mohammad Bashir resumed the hearing of the case in which he has summoned two witnesses of the prosecution – Shahidh Aziz and Tariq Javed – in the case.Tariq Javed submitted the bank account details of Hajveri Modarba, owned by Dar. He also provided details of other bank accounts hold by Dar’s family.
ariq Javed informed the court one account was opened with Al Baraka bank in 1991, adding that he had provided all record, including detains of Tabassum Ishaq Dar’s account to NAB Lahore on its request.Ishaq Dar’s counsel Khawaja Haris raised questions regarding the validity of the documents, adding that anyone can prepare such documents.
Like the "report" commissioned by Maryam Sharif using the "wrong" font :mrgreen:
PML-N stalwart Daniyal Aziz, Anusha Rehman, Barrister Zafarullah, Tariq Fazal are also present in the court. Protecting interest of Ganja !
According to the NAB reference, the accused had acquired assets and pecuniary interests/resources in his name or in the name of his dependents of an approximate amount of Rs831.678 million as per the investigation conducted so far.The assets are disproportionate to his known sources of income for which he could not reasonably account for, the reference said. On top of that, he is also suspected of using his "Chartered Accountancy" talents to help Ganja Sharif ( who is related to him ) evade tax, launder money , accumulate oversees property and other related shenanigans :mrgreen:

Coleman and Boyle were kidnapped while backpacking in Afghanistan in 2012. Coleman was pregnant at the time, and a video released by the Taliban in December showed their two sons born while they were hostages.


Interesting, the couple is taken hostage, yet they had a son in captivity. Must be a honeymoon to them, escape from daily rigor

They conceived two and in all had three children in captivity. But how did they end up in Pakistan if there is no Haquani Network in Pakistan? Osama all over again.

Americans had the intelligence. Were on the verge of rescue mission in Pakistan. They shared the intelligence with Pakis. Pakis had no choice but to 'rescue'. But Pakis have lot of explaining to do.

A 'Postive Moment' for U.S.-Pakistan Relations?

A hostage release and the questions it raises

Krishnadev Calamur in The Atlantic, October 12, 2017

https://www.theatlantic.com/internation ... es/542724/

In 2012, Caitlan Coleman, a native of Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, and her Canadian husband, Josh Boyle, were in Afghanistan’s Wardak Province as part of an adventure trip through Russia and Central Asia. Coleman was several months pregnant at the time. The couple was captured by the militant Haqqani network and was seen over the years in two videos, along with two of the children they had in captivity, in which they pleaded for their freedom. A third child was born recently.

On Thursday the Pakistani military said it had rescued “5 Western hostages including 1 Canadian, his US National wife and their three children from terrorist custody through an intelligence based operation by Pakistan troops and intelligence agencies.” The statement said the family had been kept in Afghanistan since their abduction but had crossed over into Pakistan in recent days and that Pakistani authorities were alerted to this fact by the U.S. counterparts.


President Trump, in a statement, confirmed that those rescued were Coleman, now 31, Boyle, now 34, and their three children, all of whom were born in captivity.

The couple’s path to Wardak, from there to captivity, and from there to their eventual freedom, was a complicated one. Canadian media have previously said Boyle was fascinated with terrorism. In 2009 he told the Globe and Mail: “Anything related to terrorism on Wikipedia, I wrote, pretty much.” Boyle was also married at one point to the sister of Omar Khadr, the teenage Canadian who was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 and held in Guantanamo Bay until 2012. (At first Khadr pleaded guilty to killing an American soldier, but later said his confession was coerced. The U.S. returned him to Canada to serve out the rest of his eight-year sentence, but he was freed by a Canadian court. He eventually sued the Canadian government, won a multimillion settlement, and an apology.) Intelligence officials have previously called that link and Boyle’s abduction a “horrible coincidence.” Horrible coincidence, like... David Coleman Headley? Just look at the American Mohterma in full garbage bag regalia. The husband was previously married to the sister of a Canadian-Paki Guantanamo Bay Detainee! :eek: Boyle and Coleman met online. They were married in 2011, a year before they set off on their trip.

The circumstances of their rescue are still not clear. The Pakistani military said the family were freed following an “operation by Pakistani forces, based on actionable intelligence from US authorities.” Both the White House and the U.S. State Department said the U.S., working with Pakistan, has “secured the release of the Boyle-Coleman family from captivity in Pakistan.”

The distinction is important, because it’s the difference between a military operation to free the five hostages and a negotiation for their release.

...

Jennifer Griffin, the Fox News national-security correspondent, quoted a U.S. official as saying, in her words: “there was NO military operation to release Caitlan Coleman and her family. This was a negotiated handover.”

“We will never know” how they were freed, Husain Haqqani, a former Pakistani ambassador to Washington who is now a leading critic of his country’s government and its military, told me. He cited past cases of freed hostages whose recovery was later discovered to have been the result of negotiations between the Pakistani military and militants...

Haqqani, who is now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, added that the hostage release “raises questions about the competence of Pakistani intelligence” in finding people within its borders or in the tribal areas near it.

“This is an intelligence service who behaves like the KGB or the Stasi with its own citizens who dissent, and is able to harass them and find there everywhere and anywhere, but is totally unable to find bin Laden when he is located in Pakistan or to find the home where a family is being kept hostage for five years,” he said.
:mrgreen:

Although the couple was abducted in Afghanistan, others have raised the possibility they were in Pakistan.

...

At a hearing before a U.S. Senate panel in 2015, Lieutenant Colonel Jason Amerine, a U.S. special-forces soldier, said the couple and the one child they had at the time “are … hostages in Pakistan.” Other former hostages of the Haqqani network, including the American soldier Bowe Bergdahl and the journalist David Rohde, were also moved from Afghanistan into the tribal areas of Pakistan.

Pakistan has been viewed as a reluctant partner in the U.S.-led war on terrorism. Most famously Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, was killed by U.S. Navy SEALs in Abbotabad, the Pakistani military town, where he had lived for several years after the attacks of September 11. Pakistan is also believed to support groups like the Taliban that are working to destabilize the U.S.-backed Afghan government in Kabul.

At the same time, however, Pakistan itself has become a victim of terrorism. :(( :roll: Militant groups have staged frequent attacks over the years against politicians, minorities, and others. And the Pakistani military has cracked down on militant groups operating inside the country. Add to this the Trump administration’s policy in the region, which has emphasized pressuring Pakistan to crack down on terrorism. The Defense Department has withheld millions in military funding from the country because of its perceived lack of action against the Haqqani network in particular. Trump, in his statement about the hostage release, said that it was “a positive moment for our country’s relationship with Pakistan. The Pakistani government’s cooperation is a sign that it is honoring America's wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region.”

But Haqqani was dismissive of the idea. “This is really typical of Pakistani intelligence services behavior,” he said. “Whenever the heat gets too much, they deliver something to raise American hopes. ... It has happened enough times in the last 20 years for people to be cynical.”

This is how the picture appears to me.

1) In lieu of a foreign exchange reserve, Terroristan has a foreign hostages reserve (see last para of article, there are others).

2) Some of these hostages are aid workers or academics or tourists. Others have a noticeable green tinge if you look at them in a certain light... this Boyle fellow and his Amreeki mohtarma could be in that category. The wife, Caitlan Coleman, lived in Stewartstown, PA. This may be pure coincidence (just like Omar Khadr!) but Stewartsown is about 2 hrs drive from Pennsburg, PA, the home of the notorious white American jihadi mohtarma known as Jihad Jane. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colleen_LaRose If I were FBI/NSA I would sniff around for a cell in the area.

3) Any which way, Terroristans' proxies like Haqqani Network become the bank vaults of the national foreign hostages reserve. They secure the hostages and of course, provide "plausible deniability" for the TSPA/ISI's kidnapping racket.

4) Just as they pretend to fight terrorism, TSPA/ISI pretend to search for these hostages. However, what is interesting is the timing of when TSPA/ISI suddenly happens to "find" a given hostage or group of hostages. Recently the US Congress has voted to cut aid to Terroristan. Moreover the Terroristani economy is hanging by a thread and could implode without a dire bailout from IMF/WB/3.5 fathers.

5) A deal is negotiated behind closed doors for ransom to be paid to TSPA/ISI/Terroristan itself, and the hostages are duly released. The Terroristanis have probably read Trump's "Art of the Deal", because they know Trump is under political pressure at home and a "positive" story of freed American hostages would give him some respite and good publicity in the media. So they were probably able to extract a hefty reward for the Boyle-Coleman family.

6) A few extras in this particular case for the Terroristanis. (A) The TSPA/ISI tried to gain some extra credit by claiming (falsely) to the media that the Boyle-Colemans had been "rescued" by TSPA. Today The Atlantic (normally quite a pro-Paki outlet) is reporting that this is BS... there was no military rescue operation, only shadowy negotiations. :P (B) I really, really hope this couple are kept under some very tight surveillance by FBI and NSA when they return... this is classic "Homeland" territory.




He added: “If Pakistan is to regain its credibility, it will have to act in a consistent manner against all jihadis and make sure that that consistency is sufficiently visible for cynicism about Pakistani behavior to end.”

Indeed, Trump, in his statement, urged Pakistan’s “cooperation and teamwork in helping secure the release of remaining hostages.” At least one other American is believed to be in the Taliban’s custody: Kevin King, a 60-year-old who was working at the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul when he was abducted in 2016 along with Timothy Weeks, a 48-year-old Australian colleague. Another American, Paul Overby, has been missing in the country since 2014.

D.G. I.S.P.R. Doing P.R. (giri ) In K.U.

I'm a fundamentalist too, but not an extremist, says DG ISPR :roll:
The Express Tribune

I am also a fundamentalist but not every fundamentalist is a terrorist, Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor has said.“Western countries and Indians are also fundamentalists,” Maj Gen Ghafoor told students of the University of Karachi during a visit to the campus on Thursday. “Not every terrorist relates himself with fundamentalism,” Express News reported. In light of POTUS's ominous pronouncement on Pakiland, the whole Paki Fauj is on some sort of a "damage control" exercise. COAS Bajwa pontificating on the Paki Economy, expressing his "concern" over high external debt and then this PR guy himself philosophizing about fundamentalism, terrorism etc etc :mrgreen:
“If I’m someone who wants everyone to view the world through my perspective, then I’ll not be called a fundamentalist, but an extremist,” the DG explained. “If I force others to agree to my ideologies, then I’d be called as the one who is prone to violence or terrorism.” Not sure if the "preaching" was done in the vernacular ( per ex Pm Ganja orders ) or he took his chance on Paki English !
In order to be Muslims, he added, we don’t have to chant slogans, but prove, through our deeds, what we believe in. “If we adhere to the principles of Islam, the world will recognise Pakistan as an Islamic country.” And what then :roll:
Pakistan, he stressed, is one of the most beautiful creations of the Almighty and it is valued the most geographically as well. “When someone wants destruction of a country, then it targets its security forces first.”The DG termed it fortunate to be able to visit the campus, saying he was surprised to notice the number of women students being relatively higher than men.
sharia compliant attire ?
“It was said that Soviet Union’s arrival in Afghanistan posed a threat to Islam,” Maj Gen Ghafoor said. “The Soviet [Union] was ousted with the assistance of the US.”However, he added, the US launched an attack on Afghanistan following 9/11. “When those fighting the US did not find refuge [in Afghanistan], they entered Pakistan.” And then they became the "good terrrorists" first and morphed into the "bad terrorists" later !
The DG said, “we successfully completed Operation Zarb-e-Azb; we systematically cleansed our areas of terrorists and today, there are no safe havens of terrorists in the country.” End of story ! Class dismissed :D

^^^ For those who do not know the strange background ..Please do read up on background of the Boyle Guy. (Funny not many are reporting this fact) One, he didn't want to get on the plane to come back.

He was also married once to a relative of Osama Bin Laden..

Boyle had a long-standing interest in Islamic terrorism, stating in 2009 that “anything related to terrorism on Wikipedia, I wrote, pretty much.” He took an interest in the Gitmo detainee, Omar Khadr and married Omar's sister Zaynab Khadr in 2009 becoming her third husband. So will he be watched now?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joshua_Boyle
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khadr_family

(Funny thing is neither Washington Post nor a few other papers which went in details forgot to mention this which they ought to have known)

For hiking/backpacking there are good places like Yosemite in USA itself :-o

^^Interestingly -- Boyle believed it was unfair that people did not like him him because of his marriage to "a woman who had ties to Osama bin Laden."
US FBI investigators have concluded that the kidnapping of Boyle and his wife was unrelated to his first marriage and have described it as "a horrible coincidence".
The Canadian RCMP agrees with the FBI assesment; Boyle and his wife have been described as innocents and "harmless hippies" by a former Canadian senior intelligence officer familiar with the case.
Wow..

Amber G,
Although, I didnt know his background, but i found everything about this episode fishy when I read the description. Your & Other BRF posters' (esp RD's) comments make this story even spicier.
Want to keenly look on wiki babe, but I work for a client where WIKI is banned (yes it happens on this planet in Khan too. Also, please note that this can not be used for any future ref against me). And before ramana sir scolds me to use my mobile, my cheap chinese phone(tauba tauba, i hope i am not give a permaban for this) is on its last days before I move to a Korean one funded by discounts from Japanese money

To be fair, I have seen a few comments regarding this... but not many commenting that the husband's ex was related to Osama..

FWIW: Wife promised her parents that she will NOT go anywhere near Afghanistan/Pakistan .. she also kept it a secret that she was pregnant from her parents. She told that they were going to stay in "safe" stans (Central Asia)..

The husband was fascinated by Afghanistan, spoke Arabic etc..right after the wife sent an email to her parents (and made a withdrawal for the last time from her bank) that she was in unsafe place in Pak/Afghanistan she got kidnapped.

Also per WashPost both USA and Canada had deals which fizzled out before for their release. WashPost has a good article, if one is interested.

Here is link to WPost article: Inside American Caitlan Coleman’s five-year ordeal as a Taliban prisoner

From all appearances it looks as though the Taliban did take good care of these people. The children born in captivity look positively healthy and the couple themselves do not show any signs of long captivity. So the question: Were they really captive or voluntarily stayed with the Taliban and may be participated in training them perhaps in languages?

^^^ There is a story here too..
Canadian husband of American woman 'refuses to board US plane in fear he will be punished for his previous marriage to a terror suspect' after they are rescued in Pakistan with their three young children following five years in Taliban captivity

Caitlan Coleman, 31, and her husband Joshua Boyle, 34, were released on Wednesday
The couple were abducted in Afghanistan in 2012 when she was pregnant with their first child
The pair were taken by the Haqqani network and have been held in Pakistan ever since
On Wednesday, the Pakistani government facilitated their release in a joint effort with US officials
Boyle - who was previously married to terror suspect Zaynab Khadr - is refusing to board a US plane
He fears he may be arrested upon his return to the US or Canada because of his first marriage
The Khadr family is known as Canada's 'first family of terrorism' because of its Al Qaeda links
Boyle was previously questioned in Canada but was living freely when he was kidnapped

Found one more weird thing not mentioned in any of these newspapers...
Zaynab Khadr (Joshua Boyle's ex) was married 3 times before (Now she lives in Sudan with her 4th Husband).. Her previous wedding was in Kabul. Both al-Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden attended.

Pakistan Reacts As World Bank Rejects Sialkoti Statistics On External Debt :mrgreen:

Pakistan hits back, rejects World Bank’s estimate of financing needs
The Express Tribune >

ISLAMABAD: In a rare rebuke, Pakistan on Wednesday took exception to the World Bank’s attempt to paint a negative picture of its external account, saying the country’s gross external financing needs stand at $18 billion this year – 41% less than what the bank has claimed.
“Pakistan’s external account has shown a strong performance in the first two months of the current fiscal year and misinterpretation of data (by the World Bank) to deliberately paint a negative picture is uncalled for,” said a spokesman for the Ministry of Finance. "Strong "Buzz Words" not backed by any kind of evidence :roll:
The ministry issued the statement a day chafter a World Bank report made shocking claims about Pakistan’s gross external financing needs.
The ministry has accused the World Bank of “misinterpretation” of the standard definition of gross external financing needs and “misstatement” about the performance of external account. In the report, the World Bank put gross external financing needs of Pakistan at 9% of gross domestic product (GDP) ie $31 billion for the current fiscal year 2017-18, said the spokesman.
As per international reporting standards, portfolio investment was not included while calculating gross financing needs of a country, argued the spokesman. He said as per international standards, a country’s gross financing need was an aggregate of current account deficit plus debt servicing for the year.
“Based on this standard, Pakistan’s gross financing need for 2017-18 is about $18 billion (5.3% of GDP) rather than $31 billion (9% of GDP) as mentioned in the report,” he said. The Finance Minister of Pakistan - and chief launderer for Ganja Sharif, adopted the "brilliant strategy" of borrowing to boost foreign reserves - now the chickens are coming home to roost . No less than COAS Bajwa has expressed concern on this !
The spokesman said as a result of improvement in these key economic indicators, the current account deficit during July-August 2017-18 stood at $2.6 billion compared to $3.10 billion in May and June, showing a substantial improvement of 16.2%.With these positive trends strengthening in coming months, the current account deficit would improve significantly, said the spokesman. The country is basically living on "daily wages" :mrgreen:

Safdar attempted to target COAS in Ahmedis’ diatribe: Aitzaz

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senator Aitzaz Ahsan denounced the diatribe of PML-N leader Captain (r) Safdar at Ahmdis and said it was an attempt to target the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa in cover of such incendiary issues.Talking to media outside the Parliament House, PPP senator said that Capt Safdar apparently pointed out army chief in his speech and it was condemnable.“Armed forces are rendering numerous sacrifices in defence of Pakistan as Pakistan Army is busy in war against terrorism,” he said.Aitzaz mentioned that Army Chief was fighting against the enemies of Islam; however, Capt Safdar was assailing him. There have been unsubstantiated rumours that COAS Bajwa is a Qadiani or an Ahmedi !
On October 10, Captain Safdar, who is former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law, criticised the renaming of Quaid-e-Azam University’s (QAU) physics centre after Professor Dr Abdus Salam, the country’s first Nobel laureate — the grounds for the lawmaker’s objections being the scientist’s Ahmadi faith.“These people [Ahmadis] are a threat to this country, its constitution and ideology. This situation is heading towards a dangerous point,” said Safdar in his diatribe against the community. Pakistan was created with an ideology to protect the finality of Prophethood [Khatm-i-Naboowat] so Islam is practiced here, the PML-N leader said. IMO, I doubt that he had Ganja's blessings on this one !

Canadian husband of American woman 'refuses to board US plane in fear he will be punished for his previous marriage to a terror suspect' after they are rescued in Pakistan with their three young children following five years in Taliban captivity

Caitlan Coleman, 31, and her husband Joshua Boyle, 34, were released on Wednesday
The couple were abducted in Afghanistan in 2012 when she was pregnant with their first child
The pair were taken by the Haqqani network and have been held in Pakistan ever since
On Wednesday, the Pakistani government facilitated their release in a joint effort with US officials
Boyle - who was previously married to terror suspect Zaynab Khadr - is refusing to board a US plane
He fears he may be arrested upon his return to the US or Canada because of his first marriage
The Khadr family is known as Canada's 'first family of terrorism' because of its Al Qaeda links
Boyle was previously questioned in Canada but was living freely when he was kidnapped

Found one more weird thing not mentioned in any of these newspapers...
Zaynab Khadr (Joshua Boyle's ex) was married 3 times before (Now she lives in Sudan with her 4th Husband).. Her previous wedding was in Kabul. Both al-Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden attended.


Of course she, her family had a big house in Pakistan ..

A noted friend of the family is former Pakistani Air Force officer and ISI agent Khalid Khawaja...
(And Joshua Boyle's ex Father-in-law, brother-in-laws etc are who-who in terror kingdom.. FIL killed by Pakis/or drone strike.. friends Just check out sources given in link I gave before - or just do a google on Zaunab Khadr)

NAB Drama : Ganja Will Be "No Show" !

Sharif set to skip court proceedings today

LAHORE: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif will not appear before the accountability court in Islamabad on Friday (today) to face indictment in three graft cases since his wife’s condition is serious.“Mian sahib is busy looking after his wife, Begum Kulsoom, in London. He may try to return to the country for the next court hearing,” Federal Minister for Climate Change Mushahidullah Khan told Dawn on Thursday.In response to a question whether Mr Sharif would return after Begum Kul­soom’s chemotherapy was over, he said: “Chemo­therapy takes two-and-a-half months but I think Mian sahib will return before that.”He said Mr Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz and retired Capt Mohammad Safdar, however, will appear before the accountability court in Islamabad on Friday (today) to face indictment in the NAB references. The whole family is under immense pressure these days. Properties being seized left and right, speculation in MSM about their future plans etc etc :mrgreen: [/quote]
On Oct 9, the accountability court in Islamabad observed that Mr Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Capt Safdar would be indicted on Oct 13 (today). It had also ordered NAB to initiate the process of declaring Mr Sharif’s sons — Hassan and Hussain — proclaimed offenders, for consistently skipping court proceedings in the graft references pertaining to the Park Lane flats and the establishment of offshore companies. NAB has given them 30 days (from Oct 11) to appear in court. ( EXAMPLE # 1)
During her three-day stay in Lahore, Maryam did not visit her Jati Umra residence but stayed at her son-in-law’s home on The Mall. She did not meet party workers from NA-120, many of whom were expecting her to meet them and congratulate her for her mother’s victory in the by-election. Maryam had left for London within hours of the announcement of the election result. ( EXAMPLE # 2)
In or out of power, the "culture of entitlement and sycophancy " still remains in Pakiland. PTI is the puppet. Deep State is the puppetier behind the scene to embarass the Ganja clan !
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf leader Begum Mehnaz Rafi has questioned why Maryam had been given a government-owned plane to use for personal reasons.

Imran Khan vows to quit politics after disqualification

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan vowed on Thursday that he would bid farewell to politics if he is disqualified by the Supreme Court in a case pending before it. One of those bombastic statements that he "bowls" out of his mouth once in a while to get "more publicity". And as "everyone" knows that this "PM in waiting" and self appointed saviour of Pakiland has no intention in honouring :twisted:

By now this Boyle-Haqqani saga has a big enough hole in their story one can drive an ISI truck through it. That's why Boyle refused to travel to Bagram with his family and be interrogated. He knows the boy king of Canuckistan will protect him. NYT today is gushing all over this revived paki love for things Americana.

Meet The Paki With A Taste For Guinness ( Not The Haraam Kind :mrgreen: )

Pakistani Genius Reclaims His Guinness World Record in Just 10 Months

Abdul Basit, Pakistan’s very own Guinness World Record-maker, has just made another record — he has reclaimed his earlier title by beating the fastest time to identify all elements of the periodic table.Abdul Basit Siddiqi is a memory genius with a flair for mental calculations. An MBA from IBA, he now lives in Dubai and teaches at an American institute. He also has his own YouTube channel called NumberTainment, where he teaches how to master the numbers. ( From the pic and the headgear it looks that he has completely "gone native"! wannabe Arab !) And, in his spare time, he makes Guinness World Records.
I believe that "haraam entertainment" is still available in plenty in Dubai :mrgreen:
Last December, he attempted and succeeded in setting the record for the fastest time for correctly identifying all the elements in the periodic table. That’s when he decided that he won’t stop there, and will keep making records every few months and so. True to his word, he set the fastest time to type a text message on a mobile phone using Swype technology in May.“I am happy that Allah SWT ( Is it necessary to "bring" Allah in the picture in this secular undertaking :roll: ) has made something that, people dream of getting once in a lifetime, easy for me,” shared Abdul Basit.
His first record, however, was broken earlier this year by Dipesh Bhandari ( RAA agent :D ) (Nepal) in Kathmandu, Nepal, who set a new record time of 2 min 46.5 seconds. Not willing to let it stand, Abdul Basit decided to give it another go. “Whenever this record is broken, I’ll take my title back.” ( the "usual" Paki boasting !)
On 22nd of September, 2017, Abdul Basit attempted to reclaim his record. Guinness World Records finally got back with the confirmation this week with the new record time of 2 min 37 seconds by Abdul Basit, making this his third successful record attempt in a row.

RAA Agent KHAADI Caught Red - Handed !

Khaadi Gets Blasted on Social Media for Not Showing Kashmir as Part of Pakistan

The Kashmir Valley, which is also referred to as heaven on Earth, is an integral part of Pakistan and there’s no denying it. :lol:
At a time when normal Kashmiris are suffering at the hands of the Indian Army, the least we could do is be mindful of their issues and support them morally. :roll: This basic fact it seems, was lost on a renowned and local clothing brand ‘Khaadi’. It recently featured products that had a map of Pakistan, without showing Kashmir as a part of it. With a name like Pro Pakistani, this rag cannot afford to be anti - Pakistani :twisted:
The ignorance showed by the leading clothing brand has sparked a wave of outrage towards the brand. If that wasn’t enough, Indians have also highlighted this issue and are mocking Khaadi as well.
:D
But that wasn’t the only thing that Khaadi did wrong. It has also made mistakes in the Gilgit-Baltistan map. People are seriously considering boycotting the brand over such a shameful act. "Boycott" has its own place . But why not "invite" NAB or FIA to investigate this matter and do the needful :twisted:
Social media pages have started sharing the post as much as possible to bring the issue to limelight.
Khaadi Responds Finally After a few days when the issue first surfaced, Khaadi’s official Facebook page has apologized for the ‘human error.’ It is requesting everyone to forgive them for the mistake.You can view their response here: Khaadi says "forgive and forget" !

Apology From Khaadi !

Them are fighting words, pardner! Annie, get your gun!

ISPR should refrain from commenting on state of the economy: interior minister

Interior Minister Asan Iqbal on Friday said that the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, should refrain from commenting on the country's economic situation
The response seems to have been directed at an interview the military's spokesman gave to a private TV channel the day earlier, in which he had said that: "If the economy is not bad, it is not doing so well either." :rotfl:
The remarks followed an address by army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, given to leaders of Karachi's business community earlier this week, in which he had stressed that economy stability was tied deeply to Pakistan's security concerns.
Gen Bajwa had said that Pakistan needs to expand its tax base, bring in financial discipline and ensure continuity of economic policies to be able to break the begging bowl, military's media wing had reported.
"Pakistan's economy is stable," Ahsan Iqbal asserted in response to those statements. "Irresponsible statements will bring (further) disrepute to the country," Iqbal added

US should support independent Balochistan: American lawmaker

WASHINGTON: The US should support the Baloch people and other oppressed groups in Pakistan, who are being subject to grave human rights violations for demanding the right to self-determination, a senior American lawmaker has said.

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher said Pakistan needs to remember what happened in 1971, referring to developments in then East Pakistan which later on became Bangladesh after years of Pakistani human rights abuses and persecution of the local population.

Resource-rich Balochistan, Pakistan's largest but least populated province, has been wracked by a long-running separatist insurgency which has seen brutal repression by Pakistani security forces and enforced disappearances.

"When the people of Bangladesh wanted to be a little independent of the Pakistani government, have some way to control their own lives and control their own government, they were brutally repressed by the Pakistani government, and that is what led to, basically, the uprising of the people in Bangladesh when they freed themselves," Rohrabacher said yesterday in the US House of Representatives.

That same type of oppression is continuing not only against the Baloch, but also against the Muhajirs who came over from India after Partition, he said.

Rohrabacher said the Muhajirs do not want to be subjugated by "this corrupt, militaristic, pro-terrorist" government of Pakistan.

"We should be siding with people like that who want their independence and believe in these same values that we believe in," he said, adding, the US needs to be supporting the Baloch.

"The Baloch are also persecuted, mainly persecuted by the Pakistanis who have them under their thumb, and they murder people constantly," he alleged.

"This is the history of Pakistan. Right now they are doing it to the Baloch, to the Sindhis, you name it. You have got just a group of people, except for the Punjabis and then others, the Pashtuns, who control that government in Pakistan," Rohrabacher said.

Ganja Sharif Is Not The Only Paki Leader Who Embarrassed Himself In Front Of The Whole World :twisted:

Most embarrassing moments for all Pakistanis when our leaders made blunders

Are you expecting to see Nawaz Sharif video? Well, yes, you will definitely see him in the videos but surprisingly it is not only Nawaz Sharif who has embarrassed us on the face of the world but numerous others as well. The list includes Nawaz Sharif (of course), Yousaf Raza Gillani and Asif Ali Zardari. The videos below will leave you in shame: (tauba, tauba, tauba :roll: )
1 – Nawaz Sharif at World Economic Forum answering questions in poor English and in a confusing state. On most of the occasions, he couldn’t understand the question from the host and asked her to repeat.
2 – Nawaz Sharif again but this time in front of Obama. He kept on reading from the piece of paper while Obama waited for him to finish and in the end, our ex-prime minister said one of the stupidest things one can imagine.
3 – Yousaf Gaza Gilani interview with CNN journalist Becky Anderson where he answered questions wrong and irrelevant to what he has been asked for. He was even insulted by the journalist.


PS: The "mother of all embarrassment movement", IMO, has to be the 1971 UN Speech of Dus Percenti's father -in- law, the megalomaniac Z.A. Bhutto. When he tore up the Resolution -on ending the Bangla -desh War- in front of the UN General Assembly and stormed out of the UN Building in front of the Whole World TV Audience . Most observers , at that time, had commented, that he was most likely "Under The Influence" ( UTI) :twisted:
