Dr. C. Christine Fair in the Diplomat:

Imran Khan: Another Act in Pakistan’s Circus

It wasn’t Imran Khan who won the election. It was (as always) Pakistan’s army.

By C. Christine Fair
July 27, 2018

On Wednesday, July 25, Pakistanis went to the polls thinking that they were electing a new prime minister. In fact, the choice was made for them. The army resolved to have Imran Khan elected as prime minister.

This was not an easy thing to do. Khan had long opined that he would never come to power through a coalition. Yet the math of Pakistan’s electoral politics would preclude him from doing so without a coalition of those willing to work with and through Pakistan’s army and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the intelligence agency it controls to do its bidding at home and abroad. Over time, Khan also had a history of irritating the army with his anti-army rhetoric.

But Khan and the army were destined to work together. The army needed a new political ally with which to vanquish its bete noir, Nawaz Sharif and his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) of the Bhuttos had long ago proved to be a problematic partner. Khan, for his part, came to realize that the only way he’d occupy the prime minister’s house would be by working with the most powerful institution in the country: the military. Indeed, the Pakistan Army is a friend with many benefits.

Not only was the outcome of this election pre-ordained, so are the consequences. Pakistanis will soon discover — sooner than later — that Imran Khan will not be substantively different than their previous political masters. For Pakistan’s international partners, it will be business as usual.

Hoisting Imran to the Throne

Imran Khan could have been prime minister earlier had he been willing to be more cooperative with the men in uniform. Khan cannot be accused of being a quick learner. However, once he figured this out, his fortunes were preordained. As Khan cozied up to the military, the military responded in kind by working through the ISI to fund his various rallies throughout the country and to help shape him into the candidate whose party would take largest share of votes in yesterday’s election.

Once Khan agreed to this tryst, the army and its handmaids in the ISI toiled tirelessly to improve upon his political prospects by inducing politicians from other parties — along with their vote banks — to defect to Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) through promises of allurements and threats of adverse consequences. The frequency of turncoats turning up at Khan’s doors gave rise to the joke that the PTI is in actuality an acronym for “Pakistan Turncoat Industry.” The security forces browbeat the media to ensure that it showered the Khan and his PTI with praise while maligning Nawaz Sharif and his PML-N. They rounded up, detained, or otherwise intimidated and harangued PML-N party workers while behind the scenes worked to have PML-N candidates disqualified from contesting.

Militants Onboard the Imran Khan Train

In the most appalling and craven move yet, the army facilitated the rise of numerous political parties with explicit ties to terrorists.

For example, the Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan is a relatively new party. Its principal platform is that it wants stricter anti-blasphemy laws that would make it even easier to kill someone suspected of insulting the prophet. In May, one of its members attempted to assassinate Pakistan’s interior minister. In 2017, the party made considerable hue and cry when Pakistan considered altering the oath which candidates must take in order to contest elections in which they aver that they are Muslims and accept the finality of the prophet. They argued that the change would permit Ahmadis — whom they and many others in Pakistan view as apostates because they do not accept the finality of the prophet Mohammad — to contest the elections. This pro-violence party fielded 566 candidates in Wednesday’s polls.

Imran Khan gave many signals to appease this group and its followers by invoking a similarly hard line on blasphemy, which is pretty ironic given his lothario past, multiple marriages, and allegations of heavy cocaine use, which also carries a death penalty in Pakistan.

Another party that is a political front for a terrorist organization is the Milli Muslim League, headed by Hafez Saeed who is also the head of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). The LeT committed the November 2008 multiday siege on Mumbai. Hafez Saeed and his terrorist group are proscribed by the United States as well as the United Nations Security Council. Saeed had been under “house arrest,” or as some say, “protective custody,” until mid-2017. Upon release he announced the formation of this party. The MML fielded some 260 candidates.

In addition, Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, (previously known as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi) is another internationally proscribed terrorist groups with ties to the Islamic State; the ASWJ fielded 150 candidates. Brazenly, Pakistan lifted the ban on this group and unblocked the assets of its chief in June of this year mere hours before the country was placed on the “grey list” by the Financial Action Task Force for failing to curb terror financing. (It should have been placed on the “black list,” if it were not for the American requirement to continue working with Pakistan to sustain its presence in Afghanistan.)

In addition, Fazlur Rehman Khalil, the founder of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM), also said that his organization supports Imran Khan and his PTI. HuM is a U.S.-designated global terrorist group with links to al-Qaeda as well as the Taliban.

This is in addition to another 1,500 or so candidates that Pakistan’s right-wing Islamist organizations fielded in the election.

Roping in a petting zoo of terrorists and their political allies seems like an odd gambit given that the Pakistan army has been ostensibly waging operations against the so-called Pakistani Taliban for well over a decade. What could possibly go wrong with additionally mainstreaming groups who not only espouse violence but actively engage in it in effort to enthrone Imran Khan — whose own closeness to militant groups has earned him the moniker “Taliban Khan”?

After the Coronation?

The votes are not yet all counted. The other political parties are already filing complaints with the election commission because of the industrial-strength rigging that will bring Khan to power. Yet it is certain that Khan will be Pakistan’s next prime minister. The only lingering questions concern the exact composition of the coalition with which he will claim to govern this complicated state of nearly 200 million Muslims, with a troubled history at home and an equally troubled history of waging terrorism and insurgency on its neighbors, Afghanistan and India.

Some Pakistanis are elated with Khan’s election and sincerely believe that he is the face of change — the man who singlehandedly crushed the stronghold of the two-party system that produced a carousel of dodgy rulers. But sooner rather than later the reality will settle in. The army will call the shots on Pakistan’s relations with Afghanistan, India, China, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. The army will continue to prosecute its proxy wars in Afghanistan and India. It will continue to cultivate those terrorists who work on its behalf while weeding out the ones who have turned on their erstwhile patrons.

In this election, it was not Khan who won, but rather the men on horseback.

Nawaz sees election as ‘stolen’, results as ‘tainted, dubious’

RAWALPINDI/ISLAMABAD: In his first reaction over Wednesday’s elections, Nawaz Sharif, the incarcerated leader of the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N), alleged on Thursday that the polls had been “stolen”.

Talking to visitors in Adiala Jail, the former prime minister warned that the “tainted and dubious” results of the elections would cast a bad impact on the country’s politics.

Thursday was a meeting day for Mr Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired Capt Muhammad Safdar, who were imprisoned after they were convicted in the Avenfield properties case.

Take a look: Party heads, bigwigs humbled in strongholds :

PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif, Khyber Pakhtun­khwa Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, Junaid Safdar (son of Maryam Nawaz), Mahnoor Safdar and Meharun Nisa (daughters of Ms Maryam), Raheel Munir (son-in-law of Ms Maryam), former federal minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, Senator Mussadiq Malik and PML-N media coordinator Muhammad Mehdi were among those who called on Nawaz Sharif and his daughter.

A number of party leaders, who visited the jail, quoted Mr Sharif as saying that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had been “made victorious” in KP despite the PTL-led previous government’s bad performance in the province.

Mr Sharif, they said, also expressed his reservations over the elections results in Faisalabad, Lahore and Rawalpindi, and said that the PML-N candidates (in these areas) were in very stable position but they had been declared defeated candidates.

Mr Sharif was of the view that Imran Khan’s position was much weaker this time than in 2013 when last general elections were held.

The personal physician of Nawaz Sharif also visited him in the jail. However, Tariq Fatemi, former adviser to the prime minister, and Absar Alam, former chairman of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority, were not allowed to meet the PML-N supremo.

The jail authorities, following the orders of the superintendent, brought the detained trio from their cells to the conference hall where they met the visitors.

Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif also held a one-on-one meeting lasting more than half an hour, later to be joined by Maryam Nawaz, sources said. During the meeting, post-elections scenario of the country came under discussion.

Talking to Dawn, the PML-N leaders said that no facilities were being provided to Nawaz Sharif in the jail as they met him in a room with no air conditioner while an air conditioner was running in the waiting room for the visitors.

The health of the former prime minister was not good, they said, adding that Nawaz Sharif did not make any comment about his health but his condition was obvious from his physical appearance.

Meanwhile, a team of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims), which was to examine Nawaz Sharif on Thursday, had to wait for over one hour and finally returned to the hospital as Mr Sharif was meeting his family members. The team has been mandated to submit a report on whether Mr Sharif should be shifted to hospital or not.

A member of the team, requesting anonymity, said that during a visit on Wednesday, they had advised Mr Sharif to get his ultrasound done but he postponed it to the next day.

“On Thursday we reached Adiala jail and requested the administration to allow us to examine Mr Sharif and conduct his medical tests,” he said. “However we were told to wait as Mr Sharif was meeting his family members. We waited for more than an hour and finally told the Pims administration that we were not being allowed to examine him and returned after getting approval from the administration,” he said.

A senior doctor of Pims, Dr Zulfiqar Ghouri, said the team would again be sent to Adiala jail on Friday (today) to examine Mr Sharif.

Crisis severe, no option to be ruled out, says Asad Umar

ISLAMABAD: Asad Umar, the man tipped to lead Pakistan’s finance ministry, says no option including knocking on the doors of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be ruled out as the country tackles its way out of a severe economic crisis.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader is the frontrunner for the post of finance minister and would be leading the negotiations with the IMF if the government chooses to exercise the option.

Pakistan faces a mammoth task of arranging around $11 billion to fill its external financing gap in the ongoing fiscal year. The deficit is higher than Pakistan’s gross official foreign currency reserves that currently stand at $9 billion. Experts say even the IMF alone cannot fill the gap. Its 2013 bailout saw Pakistan get over $6 billion spread across three years.

The requirement alone underscores the gravity of the challenge that the government-to-be would face in its first year in power. According to election results released till late Thursday night, PTI is in a clear position to form the government in the centre with support from its allied parties and independent candidates.

“The crisis is so severe and requires measures so urgent that no option can be ruled out,” said Umar while responding to a question of whether the IMF programme was an option on the table. Ooooh Mummy - IT HURTS :( :((

However, many believe it will not be that easy to seek an IMF package, as the lender could make certain politically unpopular actions, including privatisation of state-owned enterprises, a condition for the bailout. The mood in Washington will be another factor that could play a significant role, according to independent analysts. The financing gap is the difference between external requirements and available financing. External financing needs is sum of the projected current account deficit and external debt servicing.

The Ministry of Finance, the IMF and independent economists have assessed Pakistan’s gross external financing needs for 2018-19 to fall in the range of $23 billion to $28 billion. As usual, finance ministry’s estimates of roughly $23 billion financing needs are at the lower end. The IMF has assessed the needs to be at $27 billion and independent economists like Dr Hafiz Pasha have calculated the needs to be at $28 billion.

After accounting projected foreign direct investment, net expected loans from multilateral and bilateral sources, anticipated issuance of sovereign bonds and commercial borrowings, the gap remains at a minimum $11 billion, said sources in the finance ministry. They said there was a plan to issue $3 billion sovereign bonds and get about $2 billion in foreign commercial loans.

In the last fiscal year, the finance ministry had claimed that the financing gap would be $2 to $2.5 billion but it was proven wrong. AS USUAL!

Pakistan could book a current account deficit of $18 billion in FY19 again, while it would need $9.5 billion to $10 billion for external debt servicing, said Dr Pasha. He added that in this fiscal year, Pakistan will repay roughly $500 million to the IMF and also return $1 billion sovereign bonds. “There will still be $10 billion to $11 billion as external financing gap after accounting for all the possible inflows,” said Dr Pasha. He urged to take immediate measures to avoid consuming foreign currency deposits.

The finance ministry still believes that the current account deficit would be close to $15 billion - which is nearly 17% less than the last fiscal year. It has projected external debt servicing at $8 billion. The ministry’s assessment of $15 billion deficit was based on the assumption that the regulatory and administrative measures would significantly contain the import bill. However, these measures have failed in the just ended fiscal year.

Mammoth size

However, the problem is the size of the financing gap, which could also affect the cost of borrowing.

Pakistan has a 2-billion special drawing rights (SDR) quota in the IMF, which is equal to roughly $2.8 billion. The IMF’s quota is broadly based on the size of the economy of its member country and its voting power. In 2013, the IMF had approved a $6.2-billion bailout package, which was equal to 425% of the allocated quota.

In 2008, the IMF had approved $11.3 billion bailout package for Pakistan, equal to 700% of the country’s quota.

At present, Pakistan owes $4.2 billion to the IMF, which means the country has already exhausted about 150% of its quota. This could further reduce the size of the IMF loan to Pakistan, said sources in the finance ministry.

“The new government should seek a front-loaded programme to gain breathing space early in its term,” said former secretary finance Dr Waqar Masood.

If the country manages to get an IMF programme, the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank can also restore suspended budgetary support to Pakistan. These two lenders require IMF’s letter of comfort before restoring budgetary support.

In recent months, Pakistan has thrice increased its key interest rate in addition to devaluing its currency by over 22% against the US dollar since December 2017. These two measures could address some of the concerns of the World Bank, sources in the finance ministry said.

Prime Minister Imran Khan - S.Akbar Zaidi, The Hindu
While Imran Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) were fairly confident that they would emerge as the largest party in Wednesday’s elections, they could not have imagined that they would make such a strong showing, resulting in Mr. Khan becoming Pakistan’s next Prime Minister. Even some academics, supposedly looking at empirical data, got it very wrong. Although all the results have been neither verified nor notified, and many seats will have to be given up since many contenders, including Mr. Khan who had been leading in all his five constituencies, contested and won from more than one seat, no one is going to dare stand in the way of his greatest, crowning moment.

In many cases, the victory margins of the PTI are huge and impressive. The party has even made considerable inroads into former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) leader Nawaz Sharif’s fortress of the Punjab, coming a near second. It will probably form government there as well, with many of the Independents and breakaway members. Many key members of the PML(N), including former national and provincial ministers, have been defeated, including in the party’s core constituencies such as Lahore and Faisalabad. The PTI is the first party to be re-elected in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, increasing its seats. Perhaps the biggest shock has been the rout of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in its perceived stronghold, Karachi, where again the PTI has made significant gains.

The establishment’s man

There are a number of reasons why the PTI has won. Some of these are part of Pakistan’s perpetual political economy and are more standard, and there is one possible explanation which is particularly bizarre. It has been clear for many months now that Pakistan’s military establishment, with support from the superior judiciary, did not under any circumstances want Mr. Sharif’s party to win. This establishment went out of its way to ensure that he was disqualified and imprisoned, and that many of his former allies and comrades either joined the PTI or contested as Independents. In southern Punjab, several of Mr. Sharif’s allies abandoned him en masse. Furthermore, the MQM in Karachi was broken up into many groups. There was much prepoll rigging by the military. Independent commentary in the media was controlled and censored and many journalists and media houses were threatened and shut down. Open discussion and those dissenting were threatened in unprecedented ways, reminiscent of Pakistan’s many martial laws.

Despite being the military’s favourite representative, Mr. Khan must also be given credit for a forceful campaign.
He could not have won without believing that he would. He traversed the country, speaking at multiple events on the same day in different cities. While the leaders of other parties did the same, he was more visible on electronic media and had a huge presence on social media. He was also told that it was important to have winnable candidates and advised to take many dubious candidates into his party who were considered electable. Pakistan’s demography — with a large proportion of young and first-time voters, called ‘youthias’ {Oh . . .ho! :rotfl: }, supporting the PTI — is also likely to have worked in Mr. Khan's favour this time more than in 2013, given a considerably mauled PML(N).

Another explanation?

There is yet another reason being given for why Mr. Khan won so convincingly. Many months ago, a married woman and a mother of five, Bushra Riaz Wattoo, had a dream. A resident of Pakpattan in the Punjab, Ms. Wattoo was considered to be a pirni (female spiritual guide). She was believed to have been a ‘modern’ woman once who then turned to Sufism. She told her husband that Prophet Muhammad appeared in her dream one day and asked her to get married to Mr. Khan. This would not only remove all the hurdles in Mr. Khan’s way to become Prime Minister but would also eventually usher in a golden era for Pakistan, she said. It was reported in different newspapers at the beginning of this year that Ms. Wattoo met and told Mr. Khan that he would become Prime Minister only if he got married before January 5. It was later disclosed that having divorced her husband, she married Mr. Khan on or around January 1 this year, and by all accounts her prophecy has come through.

Mr. Khan has shown himself to be abusive, derogatory, misogynistic, arrogant and dictatorial, all within a few weeks. {But, hasn't he always been like that?} He has said that feminism degrades motherhood and that liberals ‘seek blood’ and are the most dangerous constituency in Pakistan. At the same time, he has been soft on the Taliban. During his campaign, he stated that he would have a nationalist, anti-U.S. and anti-India foreign policy. He is a born-again Muslim now with a Tasbeeh (rosary) in his hands, a conservative Muslim nationalist who believes in neoliberal economic policies. Since his party has not won a complete majority, he will have to be conciliatory and show a far more inclusive attitude towards other groups in Parliament than he has during his vile campaign.

On the day after the elections, seven losing parties called the elections rigged. One senior leader called them “the dirtiest polls in the history of Pakistan”, and the PML(N) rejected the results outright. An all-party conference to discuss the results as well as the next step has been called for Friday. It is possible that the opposition parties may have learnt from the tactics of Mr. Khan in the previous Parliament. First, he did not accept the results, and as the enfant terrible, made much of the claim that the 2013 elections were completely rigged. He took his case to the streets in his famous dharna of 2014, and to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). The ECP found almost no rigging during the 2013 elections, and he had to reluctantly accept the results.

In Naya Pakistan

The elections might be over — sordid, controversial and rigged as they have been. It is also very clear that Imran Khan is Pakistan’s next Prime Minister. Whether his wife’s prophecy of Pakistan entering a golden era will come true or not in Naya Pakistan will depend, to start with, on how the Prime Minister-designate handles the immediate expected backlash from the political parties which have lost. Mr. Khan, till now the vitriolic candidate and opposition leader, will have to mature to be a more sobering influence on government and on his many first-time, overly enthusiastic Ministers who are inexperienced in governance, much like himself. Probably the considerable influence of the military and the judiciary on him will go a long way in helping this. Or, perhaps, the current Mrs. Khan’s visions will now guide his and the country’s future. :rotfl:

In new innings, Imran pitches for Islamic welfare state - PTI
“I want to share with you the kind of Pakistan I envision — the type of state that was established in Medina, where widows and the poor were taken care of, My inspiration comes from the last Prophet who set up an ideal welfare state in Medina. I want Pakistan to become like that.” he said.

That was what Jinnah promised the Muslims 75 years back, 'A new Medina' !

It was promised to the gullible & trusting Muslims of the Ganga-Jamuna belt that a New Medina on the lines of Prophet's Medina would be established 1300 years later in the form of Pakistan. Medina & Pakistan were terms used interchangeably; one meant the other. Rather odious (but pleasing to the ears of the Islamists) comparisons were drawn saying that the hijra of the Muslim families from the United Provinces leaving behind their lands & properties would be only temporary because like the victorious Muhammad, they would return to India too victoriously!

So, the utopian Medina is still in the works and comes handy nearly a century later !

In the meanwhile, the Medinese forces have been roundly beaten with increasing margins in every outing by the evil infidels of Hindustan.

A ritual in which a newborn’s head is locked in an iron mask to restrict the growth of skull, this savage act occurs in the Shrine of Saint Dolah located in Gujrat. The ritual is indicative of a wider reality in Pakistan: the strong beliefs that people have in saints and their shrines. The peculiarity of the Saint Dolah Shrine is the age old tradition associated with it.

According to this tradition, a married couple having no luck with children comes to offer a sheet of flowers & prays at the Shrine of Saint Shah Dolah in hope of having a baby. If the couple is lucky, they have to pay a much bigger price. They have to give their first born to the administration of the Shrine as a gesture of gratitude. The parents are then not allowed to meet their baby; however, they get to keep their other children if the mother gives birth again.

These infants are subjected to artificial microcephaly. With a tiny sloped skull on a normal body, these children are called “Rats” or “Chuhas” (a term used by the locals) of the Shrine of Saint Shah Dolah.

They are made to wear a green cloak and are then dispersed on the streets around the Shrine. Having no education or other skill to earn a living, these children are forced to beg the visitors and local people for money. Along with this tradition comes a superstition that ignoring or rejecting these “Rat Children” for money brings bad luck, therefore people fill their bowls with coins and paper money. This money is later submitted to the administration of the shrine.

Peregrine Ji,

The pain may be from something else all together as going by the book written by Reham Khan, Imran Khan is well practiced with the use of KY Jelly and empty cigar cases :wink: :lol: .

Excerpt from Reham Khan’s book :

The long-term, live-in relationship with Moby was odd too. Imran would refer to him as his wife. Moby, while married for a third time, chose to live with Imran and not his own wife. I found these connections hard to understand but chose to dismiss them, deeming it paranoia. However, while cleaning the bottom-left drawer of my husband’s side table, I found empty cigar cases and huge tubes of KY jelly. When I asked what they were for, Imran explained that the lubricant and the metal cases were used together. His ‘preferences’ became clear. My look of horror produced peals of laughter from my sexually liberated husband.

I had caught my husband ‘admiring’ male genitalia through his impressive DVD collection several times. It was embarrassing to walk into the bedroom of a husband who was pleasuring himself to images of male bodies while his wife was busy cooking in the kitchen.

Apparently Kapil Dev has endorsed I'm the Dim as the next PM. Must be hankering for an invite. Also, it seems Sunil Gavaskar, way back when, had predicted the dimwit's rise as a future PM of toiletistan.

This is a joke

There is no need to allow the pakistani PM to meet the indian PM

India needs to appoint a person specifically for pakistan. If the pakistani PM wants to to talk to the indian head, this specific person should be sent to talk to him. This will put a stop to a lot of the political and diplomatic mischief.

Hajam Sethi Says That "Imposition Of Emergency" Under The Pretext Of "Financial Necessity" Cannot Be Ruled Out Under The Imran Regime .

Welcome to “New” Pakistan!
Najam Sethi
27 Jul 2018

Before the elections, every political party (except PTI), every foreign newspaper and every independent journalist had concluded that The Aliens, Khalai Makhluk, Agriculture Department, Miltablishment, Whatever, had conclusively pre-rigged the elections in an unprecedented manner. A day after the elections, every political party (except PTI), every foreign newspaper and every independent journalist has confirmed the finding. Before the elections, the Miltablishment, Supreme Court and Media were on trial. After the elections, the Election Commission of Pakistan has joined them in the dock.
The ECP claims that “the Remote Transmission System (RTS) broke down, hence the announcement of results was delayed by a few hours.” Was the RTS deliberately glitched because the Agriculture Department panicked when the opposition began to weigh in and something had to be done to get things back on track? Even if it was an unforeseen breakdown, this does not explain why the polling agents were kicked out while the votes were being tabulated or why such lengthy delays ensued.
Have the foreign sent "Observers" taken note of this shenanigans :roll:
In the next year or so, we should expect scores of petitions to be filed wherever the margin of PTI’s victory is less than 10,000 or thereabouts. Thousands of bags will be opened and hundreds of thousands of ballots recounted and thumbprints matched. Thousands of Form 45 will be scrutinized. But none of this huffing and puffing will bring Imran Khan’s house down because he is protected and propped up by the Miltablishment.
Imran Khan will be Prime Minister, he will choose the next President of Pakistan ( Mamnoon's days as Prez are numbered !) and the PTI will rule in Islamabad, KP and possibly even in Punjab while mounting stiff opposition to the PPP in Sindh. Why was such a sweeping victory required of it? What should we expect in the new Pakistan?
To be fair, Imran Khan cannot be denied his fair share of the voter, especially among the new youth, urbanising white-collar middle-class and rich. His prospects became brighter after he started to enroll “electables” regardless of the colour of their money or character. Equally, the PMLN, whatever its self-righteous claims or principles, was well and truly on a suicidal path. But electoral engineering on such a large scale was still necessary to provide legitimacy for a constitutional and political overhaul. What’s on the cards? The only fair election, IMO, was in 1970, when the unexpected happened , and the consequences proved catastrophic for Pakistan. So, "political engineering" WAS necessary !
A State of Emergency could be imposed under the garb of financial necessity pinned to the alleged misdeeds of the previous regimes. The numbers in parliament will not be too difficult to get. Such an Emergency would restrict fundamental rights and pave the way for a witch hunt of political and media opponents in order to satisfy the bloodlust of the winners (IK has said he won’t do that), protect them from any potential buffeting by a disgruntled opposition and detract criticism from unpopular policy decisions or incompetent and corrupt mismanagement. If that happens, we should expect NAB, FIA, FBR and IB to get hyper active after all state institutions are brought on the same page.
IMO, some sort of emergency measures cannot be ruled out plus some restriction on foreign travel to "conserve foreign exchange" !
The constitution may also be targeted for amendment. The 18th Amendment, for starters, has become irksome because it shaves the federal pool — which is required to pay for increasing defense expenditures and pensions— by devolving financial resources to the provinces. A need may also be felt to reduce the size and strength of Punjab in the scheme of things, especially since the development of a critical fissure in the historical pro-Miltablishment character of the province. Plans remain on the anvil to carve it up into three or more “units” that are politically more “manageable”. The PTI Party has said that it favours a new province called Southern Pakjab !
But the “new dream team” that is lining up to run the “new Pakistan” will not find it easy going. The economy needs more than a shot in the arm. Hard times are upon us and the very middle-classes and rich that have catapulted Imran Khan to office will have to pay the price of their convictions. The value of their rupee is going to fall, so their everyday needs will become expensive; they will have to pay more indirect taxes and duties; and IMF structural reforms will dampen infrastructural growth and employment. This will give grist to the opposition, media and judiciary to stand up and create hurdles in his path. And this is only the "economic headaches" facing Immy . Let us see how he tackles the "political headaches" like relations with India, Afghanistan, US and China . Then there is the internal rebellion in Balochistan and FATA areas !
Admittedly, the Miltablishment has stitched up an extraordinary political dispensation in difficult times. But, unlike Nawaz, the person they have chosen to lead it is strong-willed and unpredictable. In fact, Nawaz was eminently pliant. Yet, after a while, he felt compelled, given the nature of power, to try and be his own man. But this was unacceptable and he had to pay the price for even thinking such rash thoughts. Imran Khan, on the other hand, is a different kettle of fish. He may have embraced the Miltablishment as a tactical move but sooner rather than later he will begin to challenge the conventional wisdom of the national security state handed down to him. That’s when all bets will be off.
Meanwhile, let us not spoil their honeymoon with grudging digs and pin pricks.
Hajam Sethi himself will be "one of Imran's victims" :twisted:

Imran Khan Was Singing The Army Tune In His "Victory Speech "

Imran Khan as Pakistan PM: India need not take PTI chief's insincere 'peace overtures' seriously
Sreemoy Talukdar, First Post
July 27, 2018

Imran Khan's victory speech has been a cause for much debate, internal and external. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief, who is poised to take over as Pakistan's 19th prime minister, outlined his vision for 'naya Pakistan' in a televised address on Thursday where he also offered a slice of his foreign policy roadmap. Among other nations, he also spent a few words on India. What should we make of Imran’s ‘vision’? Does he offer anything new? Can he bring about a thaw in frozen bilateral ties? How may the two countries get along under his tenure as the prime minister?
To discuss these questions, first let us recount Imran’s exact words (delivered in Urdu) to the extent that some of it is not lost in translation. Paraphrases won’t work here.
"I was saddened in the last few days, how the Hindustani media portrayed me as a Bollywood film villain. It seemed like Hindustan feared everything bad would happen if Imran Khan came into power. I am that Pakistani who has the most familiarity with Hindustan, I have been all over that country (for cricket, of course). I think it will be very good for all of us if we have good relations with Hindustan. We need to have trade ties, and the more we engage in trading, the more both nations will benefit." Has Pakistan granted MFN status to India :roll: [/quote]
"Unfortunately, the biggest core issue between us is Kashmir. The situation in Kashmir (is alarming) … And the people of Kashmir have suffered massive human rights violations. That (rights violations) is the inevitable outcome anywhere in the world when army goes to civilian areas. The Kashmiris have suffered a lot in the last 30 years." Mostly due to cross border terrorism !
“We should attempt to resolve this. Pakistani and Hindustani leadership should sit at a table and try to fix this problem. It's not going anywhere. If we continue the blame-game and assume 'Pakistan does this' and what happens in Balochistan happens due to Hindustan, we will keep coming back to square one." Like Mush, he has different messages for domestic audience and a different message for foreign viewers !
“If Hindustan’s leadership is ready, we are ready to improve ties with India. If you take one step towards us, we will take two steps towards you. Let's take the first step at least. Till now it has remained a one-sided relationship. Right now, Pakistan is blamed ( rightly IMO. The Toronto shooter last week was from Pakistan !) for all acts of terrorism anywhere in the world."
"I say this with conviction, this will be the most important thing for the subcontinent… for both countries… to have a friendship. And we should fix our main issue (implying Kashmir) through dialogue.”
IMO, even if the Kashmir issue is "solved", there is not going to be peace between these two countries !
The first thing that we should observe is that in multiple references to the country, Imran never says 'India'. It is always ‘Hindustan’. We shall discuss presently why this is significant and not because he was speaking in Urdu. :D
More important than what Imran said in his roughly three-minute India-specific speech, is to note what he did not say. He mentions the word ‘terrorism’ only once, and that too while using it as a victim card to absolve Pakistan’s role in fostering the global scourge. He does not mention even once the issue of ‘cross-border terrorism’ — the bone of contention between the two nations and the only issue over which there is bipartisan consensus in India — no mean feat given India’s fiercely competitive multi-party democracy.
So, unless the problem of cross terrorism is confronted head on , no progress can happen in any other sector !
Imran cannot be so naïve that he is unaware of the fact that any rapprochement with India is impossible unless ‘cross-border terrorism’ is not addressed. It is at the front and center of the problem. There can be no ‘talks’ with Pakistan if it continues to sponsor, manufacture, nurture and then export terror from across the border. Why did Imran, who solemnly called for developing “good” and “friendly” bilateral ties, fail to mention the single biggest cause of India-Pakistan animosity?
There can be only one conclusion, and it takes us to the heart of the reason why Imran’s ‘well-meaning’ words are little more than meaningless posturing. It gives credence to global allegations and condemnation that Pakistan's new prime minister-elect is an army puppet and the country’s powerful military fixed the pitch to clear his way.
Talks between India and Pakistan remain suspended due to terror. The Donald Trump administration has withheld all security aid to Pakistan until it stops aiding and abetting terrorists and dismantles terror factories on its soil. Afghanistan has demanded that instead of providing safe haven for Taliban terrorists, Pakistan should take action against them.
It is not only India but other neighbours are also "complaining" about Pakistan !
As Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow Alyssa Ayres writes in this blog, “For US leaders, improvement in US-Pakistan ties will be possible once a clear commitment to tackling terrorism becomes more apparent. This will surely also rank as priority number one for Indian interlocutors as well; and for Afghans, too. Unfortunately for all three countries, it’s also the issue that Khan, a civilian politician widely described as the military’s “favored” candidate this time around, would be least likely to confront.”
Imran was being duplicitous and insincere while trying to appear as earnest. His ‘speech’ on foreign policy was bereft of any policy directions, strategic heft or substance, leave alone granular details of his priorities beyond some boilerplate lines on ‘peace’ and ‘development’. This is a man deeply aware of the boundaries of his power and unwilling to step out of his crease. Imran might not be a keen student of history, but his instincts would have told him that Pakistani generals do not shy away from severing the jugular veins of pliant leaders if they try to grow too big for their boots.
Imran has never deviated from this script. It is not without reason that during the televised address, he repeatedly referred to India as ‘Hindustan’, a sort of acknowledgement and obeisance to the army and a dog whistle to his base. This is also why we should not take Imran’s words seriously. If civilian leaders try to strengthen relationship with India, then it will diminish the role of the army and squeeze the benefits that it reaps from a conflict economy.
India would therefore do well to ignore Imran’s “call for peace” as a non-serious gesture. We should note that Imran wasn’t doing us a favour, or even remotely doing anything new. This is a well-worn tactic of Pakistan civilian leaders. Former president Asif Ali Zardari wanted “constructive, sustained ties with India” in 2012.
Nawaz Sharif, soon after taking over as Pakistan prime minister in 2013, went to the United Nations to declare that he wants a “new beginning” in India. Sharif’s problem was that he took script handed to him by the Army too seriously.
This, however, doesn’t answer why Imran appeared to court India. Two reasons may be considered. One, Imran was trying to lower the temperature in bilateral ties — not so much to create a conducive atmosphere for talks but to prevent any hostility in ties as he goes about his job of delivering on the promises he had made to his electorate. He was trying to buy some insurance. Two, in that ‘overture’, the reference to Kashmir was a pointer to the Army that he won’t take a step forward towards India without the military’s consent.
Egoistic Imran , with his "colorful" international image will of course get more international media coverage . But insiders in many countries know that he is going to do the Army's bidding . Same (old) wine in new bottle. India should ignore his "peace overture" . Modi-ji , if invited should decline and send a junior person instead . !

I'm the dim is in august company.

Imran is fifth Pak ruler who studied at Oxford
Wait! Before the paklurks start celebrating, read on...

Pakistan’s prime minister-in-waiting, 65-year-old Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi, is poised to enter the club of global rulers who have studied at the 922-year-old University of Oxford, which is the oldest university in the English-speaking world
...he will be the fifth Pakistani ruler after Liaquat Ali Khan, first prime minister of Pakistan, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, former president and prime minister, former president Sardar Farooq Ahmad Khan Leghari and Benazir Bhutto, ex-prime minister, to have studied at Oxford


So far so good (on paper). But, lets see how each of these Oxonians ended up:

Liaquat Ali Khan - Assasinated!
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto - Disgraced and Hanged!
Sardar Farooq Ahmad Khan Leghari - (Technically a president) Corrupt, Disgraced and Resigned!
Benazir Bhutto - Assasinated!
Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi - ?

Hajam Sethi Shown The Door :roll:

Wasim Akram poised to replace Najam Sethi as PCB chief

ISLAMABAD – The electoral victory of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in the 11th general Elections is set to shake up the institutional structure of Pakistan with major changes in the top brass of state-owned institutions including Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
As Imran Khan is sure to take charge as the next Prime Minister of the country, his long-time friend Wasim Akram is expected to take over the reins of country’s cricket board, the PCB.
Currently, Najam Sethi, a veteran journalist is the PCB chief, however, Imran’s rise to power has paved way for the left-arm bowler to take control of PCB, which would definitely be reshuffled owing to Imran Khan’s cricketing past.Akram’s selection as the next PCB chief was also confirmed by one of his family member in a conversation with a sports portal.
“Yes, Wasim is the front runner for becoming next PCB chairperson. He’s been associated with Imran Khan since both legends used to play cricket for Pakistan and now both ready to take the country on new heights,” a family member was quoted as saying by Sports Mirchi.
Sethi was appointed as the PCB chief by former premier Nawaz Sharif and he also faced the axe of superior courts, however, he consolidated his position after amending the PCB’s constitution.
Wasim Akram has played under the leadership of Imran Khan and had also bagged support of the public for the cricketer before the elections. He also dashed to Imran’s Bani Gala residence to congratulate him on the thumping victory in the elections.

Pakistan's Policy Towards Saudia Is Framed By The Fauj, So, It Is Just A Courtesy Call By The Saudi Amb :mrgreen:

Saudi ambassador calls on Pakistan’s ‘incoming PM’ Imran Khan at Bani Gala

ISLAMABAD – Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Bin Saeed Ahmad Al-Maliki called on the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, following his party’s thumping victory in the 2018 general elections.The Saudi envoy congratulated the ‘PM-designate’ over his win in Wednesday’s polls, and vowed to work closely with new government.
Imran Khan, in his first address to the nation after the election victory on Thursday, expressed his desire to forge closer ties with Saudi Arabia and neighbouring Iran.
“We want to improve ties with Iran. Saudi Arabia is a friend who has always stood by us in difficult times. Our aim will be that whatever we can do for conciliation in the Middle East, we want to play that role. Those tensions, that fight, between neighbours, we will try to bring them together,” Khan said in his address.
In the past, Imran has made a "few noises" in the past about Paki tilt towards Saudia in the Sunni- Shia tiff . This was to oppose Ganja (and Raheel) Sharif's soft corner for Saudia :twisted: The Paki fauj knows where it's bread nan is buttered . Saudia is of course, promised The Bum ( off the shelf purchase ) as a last resort, in case if its existence is at stake :twisted:
Earlier today, the United States (US) State Department spokesperson also congratulated the PTI chief over his party’s performance in the general elections 2018, and assured to work with the next government for improved bilateral ties.
Congrats not from POTUS :eek: GOI felicitated Immy yet :roll:

Ātankavadīsthan Ka Ujwal Chintan

Profits outflow rises to $2.bn

KARACHI: Outflow of profits and dividends from the country rose to $2 billion in FY18 compared to $1.7bn witnessed in FY17, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on Thursday.

The country has been facing a difficult situation since inflow of foreign investment in the country is not significantly higher than the outflow of profits and dividends. The country received just $2.767bn in foreign direct investments in FY18 while the outflow stood at $2bn, indicating a serious shortage of inflow.

Details further show that the country had to pay about $2.32bn, including outflow through portfolio investments.

Further Information : Ātankavadīsthan's FY 2018 GDP is Rs. 34,396.5 @ US$ 1 = ARS 128 i.e. US$ 268.723 Billions!

Tyrian White dishes in on Imran Khan’s victory in General Elections

LONDON – The alleged (call a spade a spade !) daughter of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief, Imran Khan, has also dished in on the electoral victory of the cricketer-turned-politician.
In a brief commentary on the microblogging site, White quoted the congratulatory tweet of Jemima Goldsmith and merely posted a heart emoji.


Tyrian White

Tyrian White Retweeted Jemima Goldsmith

Tyrian White added,

@Jemima_Khan
22 years later, after humiliations, hurdles and sacrifices, my sons’ father is Pakistan’s next PM. It’s an incredible lesson in tenacity, belief & refusal to accept defeat. The challenge now is to remember why he entered politics in the 1st place. Congratulations @ImranKhanPTI
Guess in view of the Kaptaan's victory, euphoria runs supreme. In the past, Imran has vehemently denied siring Tyrian . ( According to Reham,s Book he has even " boasted" that there are two or three "little Imrans" roaming around inIndia Hindustan :twisted:

In the referred tweet, Jemima had felicitated Imran Khan for having strived too hard, saying ‘It’s an incredible lesson in tenacity, belief & refusal to accept defeat’.
Tyrian White is alleged to have been the lovechild of Pakistan’s PM-in-waiting, however, PTI ( PTI brand name not to sullied :roll: ) denies any such allegation.
The issue of Tyrian White was also taken up by Pakistan’s former Chief Justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, to challenge Khan’s candidacy, however, the election tribunal (in the pocket of the fauj ) did not entertain his charge.
Imran Khan owns his two sons, Sulaiman and Qasim ( implying that there are others who he "refuses to own" for Islamic reasons :twisted: ) who occasionally visit him at the Bani Gala residence and might likely join him for the inauguration ceremony, expected in next few weeks.

What a jeenius question! Why would India ****TRUST*** any paki unless of course s(he) is a RAA agint like the Short-Squat-Shrill One? :roll:
Imran Khan is the ultimate Tall Fair Tight-Assed poster child and Herrow of Terroristan. As krikit captain he took Pakistan to WC championship. Why not in economics and military might?

IMO
1) He will align with the military to **CRUSH** most of the rabid religious elements in the terror machine.
2) This will win him beaucoup goodies from Yoo Ess, Oirope, Britain and Australia, not to mention China. I think he will be the all-time Most Popular PM of Pakistan.
3) The other parties such as Pee Pee Pee, Pee Em Ell En, Em Qyoo Em will hate him ever more.
4) The terror bijnej will resent his lording over them.

5) For the above 4 reasons, I give him maybe 1 year of "probation period". I would not want to buy shares in the Life Insurance company that holds his policy.

Ramana, you pulled the plug on the paki election thread too soon.

Multi-party conference rejects results of July 25 polls 'with consensus', demands re-election

A multi-party conference (MPC) called to devise a joint strategy over alleged rigging in the 2018 general elections on Friday rejected the results of the poll, demanding a "transparent" re-election.
In attendance at the MPC were Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Senator Sirajul Haq, Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair, Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Hafeezur Rehman, Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider, Awami National Party chief Asfandyar Wali Khan, Qaumi Watan Party chairman Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao, National Party's Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chairman Mehmood Khan Achakzai and several MMA leaders. PML-N leaders Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ayaz Sadiq, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Chaudhry Tanveer and Khurram Dastagir and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) leaders Mustafa Kamal, Raza Haroon and Waseem Ahmed also participated.
"The All Parties Conference has completely rejected the July 25, 2018 elections with consensus"
"We do not consider this election to be the mandate of the public, but a theft of people's mandate."
Rehman said the elected candidates of the parties whose leaders attended the MPC will not take oath.
He said a movement will be started, and protests will be held to demand a re-election, the schedule of which would be decided by a committee within a day or two.
Returning, presiding and other officers "remained a hostage to the army personnel" and did not hand over results of the parties' polling agents, he alleged.
"We will not let these thieves even enter the parliament," Rehman warned.
Shahbaz said Wednesday's elections saw the "worst irregularities", the examples of which are not found in Pakistani history.


AoA. Let the rallies, dharnas, container road blocks and mayhem leading to an re-election countdown begin!
