India won’t soften on terror from Pakistan during Modi-Xi talks
Sachin Parashar and Saibal Dasgupta | TNN | Updated: Apr 25, 2018, 08:10 IST
NEW DELHI/BEIJING: The meeting between PM Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping may not see them getting into specifics of prickly issues but this does not mean India will soften its position on Pakistan and cross-border terrorism.
Foreign minister Sushma Swaraj in her address at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation foreign ministers meeting, also attended by Pakistan foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif, reiterated India’s position directly.
“Our fight against terrorism should not only seek to eliminate terrorists but should also take strong measures against states that encourage, support and finance terrorism and provide sanctuary to terrorists and terror groups,” Swaraj said in Beijing.
The reference to Pakistan, though not named, was clear enough. “Terrorism is an enemy of the basic human rights: of life, peace and prosperity,” Swaraj said. She reiterated that the comprehensive convention on international terror be established and security cooperation within SCO strengthened.

Pakistan Players Should First Learn to Respect India Before Thinking About Resumption of Bilateral Cricket: BCCI
Baidurjo Bhose |Cricketnext | Updated: April 25, 2018, 8:07 AM IST
....
Speaking to CricketNext, a senior BCCI official said that resuming cricketing ties with a country which doesn’t respect another country doesn’t even arise, let alone seeking government permission. In fact, the official went on to add that Ali’s bizarre antics at the Attari-Wagah border during the traditional flag-lowering ceremony following former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi’s comments on Kashmir further justified the Indian board’s stance of cutting all ties with its Pakistan counterpart because they were the ones who were mixing sports with politics.

Islamabad High Court overturns acquittal of Axact CEO in fake degrees case

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday overturned the acquittal of Axact chief executive officer Shoaib Sheikh and other officials of the company in the fake degrees case by a sessions court.A two-member bench of the court comprising Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb announced the verdict on an appeal of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) against the acquittal. Ordering a retrial of the case, the IHC ordered the sessions judge Islamabad (West) to decide the matter after hearing all the arguments afresh. Not sure what is happening over here. There have always been reports that Axact and BOL TV are "projects" of Deep State, and has been owned by Dawood Ebrahim, the Don. As it sometimes happens in Pakiland, there is probably a "behind the scene" tussle going on between FIA and the Deep State . !
Axact first came into the limelight in 2015 when a New York Times report titled "Fake Diplomas, Real Cash: Pakistani Company Axact Reaps Millions" outlined how the "secretive Pakistani software company" had allegedly earned millions of dollars from scams involving fake degrees, non-existent online universities and manipulation of customers.According to the report, Axact had created a series of fake websites involving “professors” and students who it said were in fact paid actors.
Umair Hamid, a vice president of Axact, was last year sentenced to 21 months in prison in the US for his role in the international diploma mill scheme. In addition to the prison term, Hamid, 31, from Karachi, was ordered to forfeit $5,303,020. He had pleaded guilty on April 6, 2017 to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
In January, Chief justice Mian Saqib Nisar had taken suo motu notice of the Axact fake degree scandal after international news reports said over 3,000 UK citizens had purchased fake degrees from Axact in 2013 and 2014. Did not know that the "workoholic CJP" had his slimy fingers in this mess also :mrgreen:
That news had come just months after an in-depth investigation by Canada's national broadcaster uncovered that hundreds of people working in diverse fields across Canada possess bogus degrees issued by Axact. Even some Ummah Brothers from the Gulf State were also taken for a ride by Axact !

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/wor ... 909022.cms


Sudhan Ji:
If what is reported by TOIlet is confirmed later on ( as is usually the case with all "Immy News") then what is happening these days with Immy does make sense. Of course, no Paki paper would dare publish the speculation- about their national hero - that his third marriage with the Peerni , right from the get- go, in on the rocks. Fear of "inviting legal trouble " from Imran and his battery of lawyers . IMO, Imran is a "confused desi" . Does not know where he belongs . Islami Pakiland - where he is adored by the Awaam, and is a "Badshah" about "blind men" . Or "liberal Londonistan" where he "admires the honest and liberal culture of the Brits", where his privacy does not get violated by the public ( because he is a nobody there !), and where he can, once in a while, indulge his fantasies in the night clubs of Soho ! Consider the follows:
- Reports in Paki media that the Peerni has banished Immy's beloved dogs- because of her religious beliefs - from his Bani Gala residence ( Immy denied the reports)
- His sudden dash weekend dash to Londonistan on the pretext of raising funds , when in fact the rumours swirled that he has flown there to mend fences with his "British sons", re. his THIRD marriage with a divorced woman almost 20 years younger than him
- Reports in the Paki press that politically speaking , Imran is an "empty vessel" in spite of his so -called Oxford education , his mercurial tendencies , his various off the cuff remarks , his serial boasting etc etc
- Reports in the Paki press that the Deep State is not sure that Immy can deliver the "goods for them" . And the speculation that the Deep State is hedging their election bet , by propping up Shahbaaz Sharif
- his recent "flirting on TV" with that young and attractive Russian TV anchor , which for sure, may not have gone well , with the "religious Peerni"
Immy guards his so-called privacy at his Bani Gala Home - with a vengeance . Probably, an "acquired habit" from his "England Stay" days. Therefore, it makes sense,- if the TOI report is to be believed - that he resented the Peerni's offspring staying there for longer periods . IMO, I believe that this was also an issue with the second wife Reham, who had her kids there as well .
- In the tradition of extended family, Imran is "also married" to his sisters . They have carte blanche authority from him to come and go whenever they like. At his Bani Gala Estate . It would make sense that the Peerni would resent this
- I tend to agree with one reader, who commented on the piece that "Imran is a serial fker" . You only have to see his life history . A child out of wedlock . Three marriages - the current one also on the rocks, if reports are to believed . And this "guy" still wants to be PM of The Islamic Republic Of Pakistan . :twisted:

An Interesting Article On The Nuclear Capabilities Of The Paki State And Its Clear Cut Intention To Use It On A Tactical Basis ( Limited ) In Case Of A War With India , If Its Very Existence Is Threatened !

Pakistan may soon have world's third largest nuke stockpile

WASHINGTON D.C.: Pakistan is well on its way to amassing the world's third largest nuclear weapons stockpile and its decision to deploy low-yield (5 to 10 kiloton) battlefield weapons, represents a dangerous new strategy that could have a telling impact on South Asia's future stability, claims a military history and world affairs expert.
According to unconfirmed media reports, as recently as 2014, the Islamic State (IS) reached out to former members of the Khan network for assistance in securing atomic weaponry," he says. US and other analysts have come to the conclusion that the North Korean nuclear capability and the (suspected) nuclear capability of Iran, are because of Paki "selling nuclear technology " to these rogue states !
According to Micallef, since 1990, Pakistan's military strategy has followed a three-fold approach (1) use militant proxy organizations to strike at Indian military positions in Kashmir (2) rely on the threat to deploy nuclear weapons should India try to retaliate with a military invasion of Pakistan and (3) rely on the U.S. and China, in particular, and world opinion in general, to restrain India from attacking Pakistan. If reports are to believed Paki nuclear weapons are spread all over the country, making it difficult for someone to destroy them in one attack ! Other reports have suggested that the weapons are "continuously" on the road 24/7 on the highways and byeways of Pakistan !

Blather bagging blather. Must be quite a feeling to be ordered so by a Deputy Chief of Mission even if the move is tactical/taqqiya. Peeleeizz bakis welcome you new Viceroy.

China’s reassurance on CPEC
China has apparently put the cat back in the bag to keep it away from the pigeons. For it has ‘come clean’; denying once and for all that it is building a military base inside this country’s borders. And while this will go some way to assuaging American and Indian fears of an expansionist agenda criss-crossing through Pakistan — it should have been left up to Islamabad to make the announcement.

We appreciate the Chinese statement but cannot help wonder if the Pakistan Foreign Office and other policy quarters are playing their due role. For it is for Islamabad to keep its people and the world informed and manage the complex regional and international relationships.

Citizens have in the past questioned the Pakistan government’s opaque policies. For instance, the US does not have an official military presence here, per se. But that does not necessarily mean that it has never had any; at least in terms of certain individuals who may or may not be channelled through diplomatic missions. The Raymond Davis affair was a moment where the pleading of state ignorance ultimately proved no defence before the court of public opinion.

That being said, however, China is not the US. It has, after all, many a time invited both Washington and New Delhi to hop aboard the CPEC train and see how the project is purely an economic-development one. And had the Indians and the Americans done so, this would have put to bed, particularly, ongoing suspicions about the ‘handing over’ of some $300 million to Pakistan for the construction of an airport at Gwadar — complete with a 12-kilometre landing strip — transforming the port into a militarised one.

China is always cautious when it comes to handling the delicate regional balance. Recent statements could also be viewed through the prism of China’s public reassurance to Islamabad that the Xi-Modi meeting scheduled for the end of this week will in no way dilute Sino-Pak friendship. Given how our military is sensitive about India and its role in the region — Pakistan’s friends are keen to keep Rawalpindi and Islamabad at peace.

The Chinese are a rising global power and have demonstrated that economic success is the key to gaining global influence. Furthermore China has also shown how border disputes and other bilateral fissures can be handled through diplomacy and conflict must not come in the way of trade gains. If anything Beijing has been asking Islamabad to engage with New Delhi and keep tensions to a minimum. Such an environment is also conducive to timely completion of various projects under CPEC and transforming South and Western Asia into a high economic growth zone. Keeping the economy first is a lesson that our state has yet to learn from its big brother in the hood. *

Pakistan Army chief visits Russia: Moscow courtship of Islamabad guided by concerns about New Delhi and Washington
Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff, General Qamar Jawed Bajwa is in Moscow to meet Russian military and defence officials. General Bajwa's visit follows a flurry of earlier visits to Moscow by Pakistani officials, at a time when Islamabad finds itself on back foot as the US has left no stone unturned to counter Pakistan: Be it at the Financial Action Task Force grey listing or putting the focus of the United Nations on the militant safe havens in Pakistan.
Russia too finds itself at odds with the United States, for the former's alleged meddling in the 2016 American presidential election and chemical attack in the UK. With relations of both countries with the United States at its nadir, it appears that joining hands is the best way for Moscow and Islamabad.
....
So even as Russia pursues this engagement with Pakistan, Moscow is fully aware of the pitfalls of hobnobbing with an international pariah. Therefore, in all likelihood this Russia-Pakistani bonhomie will be a temporary affair, with a full throttle effort from Russia to woo India, which despite its proximity with the US shares a common sentiment with Russia on many issues.

Terroristan - April 24, 2018

Terroristan's Journey into the Unknown

Special report: What to watch out for in the 2018-19 budget

CLICK ON “Experts predict the next budget”

Dr Hafiz A. Pasha – Economist : The budgetary process has tended to go out of control in recent months. By the end of the current fiscal year the consolidated fiscal deficit is likely to approach 6.5pc of GDP, compared to the deficit target of 4.1pc of the GDP. The expansionary nature of the on-going fiscal policy is inevitably adding to aggregate demand and putting pressure on the import bill, thereby exacerbating the problem of a large and growing current account deficit.

Given these conditions, it is indeed surprising that the lame duck government still wants to present a sixth budget at the fag end of its tenure. The reasonable expectation is that the budget strategy in 2018-19 must be to bring down sharply the deficit back to about 4.5pc of the GDP. This would necessitate unpopular taxation measures and expenditure cuts on the eve of the elections. This task could better have been left to the successor Government.

Dr Mushtaq Khan - Founder & Author, doctored papers : Planning and formalising a full year budget, when the market is still unconvinced about how this government intends to manage the external deficit, and the vicious borrowing cycle that the country has entered, defies logic. With the IMF hinting that Pakistan needs to refocus on stabilising the macro economy and follow through on incomplete reforms (a not so subtle hint that we need another stabilisation programme), what credibility will this budget have? We do not know how the country will finance its external payments in FY19, what the IMF will provide to tide us over, and also how narrow the current account deficit would have to be — so how can our planners put forward an economic plan that is internally consistent with credible financing sources?

In our view, the Budget for FY19 is a political stunt to get mileage for the next election.


Dr Faisal Bari - CEO, Ideas : The budget can be expected to be expansionary. Since elections are round the corner, this government has an incentive to increase expenditures so as to woo voters.

The increases in expenditure will come in the form of sizable increases in salaries of government employees, increase in pensions and announcements of various sorts of ‘relief’ measures. The government has already announced substantial cuts in individual income tax rates. These will also be reflected while it is unlikely to impose any new taxes in this budget.

The result of the above will be increased budgeted fiscal deficit for next year. The government will justify it by saying that it is using expansionary policy to ensure that GDP growth targets are met and the rising growth rate does not falter and fall again.

The next government that comes in, post-election, might have to bring adjustments to the budget that this government presents. Increasingly binding fiscal constraints might force the next government to reverse some of the expansionary policies this government is likely to announce. But it will not be easy to reverse all changes as doing so will make the incoming government lose popularity.


Dr Nadeem ul Haque - Former Deputy Chairman, P&D : The government has no commitment towards the budget. It cannot have any commitment towards it because it won’t be implementing it. A new government will. Besides whatever changes had to be made were made with the amnesty announcement which was a mini-budget of its own. It’s very convenient to issue a budget but the new government that comes will change it. In any case the country will enter the IMF programme sooner or later and then a new budget will be announced to support it. This budget is no big deal. It has no meaning at all.

Russia, Pakistan and China drawing closer but New Delhi need not worry yet; relationship remains transactional
There is a certain amount of smugness in Pakistani media reports that army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa is in Russia, meeting with the chief of the Russian Ground Forces, who is technically his counterpart. Commander of Russian Federation Ground Forces Colonel General Oleg Salyukov may have the longer title and command larger forces, but he is hardly the virtual head of the country, as General Bajwa is, in his.
The Pakistan media and the government — which nowadays is virtually the same thing — has presented the Russian outreach as a way to counter growing US pressure on Pakistan to end its patronage of diverse terrorists. The facts on the ground, however, tell a somewhat different story.
First, Russia is unlikely to emerge as a source of foreign aid assistance, in the manner that the US has been so far. Certainly, Russia is still number two in the list of arms exporters, and is the major power. Amidst a still shaky Russian economy, Moscow has announced big plans to expand its exports: For hard cash. Unlike the days of the USSR, there are no ‘subsidies’ or friendship prices anymore. Conversely, Pakistan is scrambling for loans from friends and allies to keep another IMF bailout at bay. That in itself raises questions of the prospects of any major defence deals.
Certainly, there have been some significant deals in the past. For instance, Moscow finally agreed to provide Russian engines for the Chinese made JF-17 fighters. This set in place a triangular relationship that sits well with Moscow’s own cosying up to Beijing.
According to Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan, Pakistan is interested in buying air defence systems and the T-90 tanks. The Sukhoi-35 deal, however, is said to be in the “early stages”. That will probably remain so for a while as New Delhi digests this piece of information. The Indian Air Force has reportedly had difficulties operating the Su-30s, and its turn to alternative sources has clearly riled Moscow.
Remember, however, that Russia still remains India’s largest supplier of defence equipment. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Russia accounts for more than 62 percent of India's total imports. That counts as leverage if New Delhi wants to use it.

Hyper Active CJP Decides To Dig Up Old Dirt . No Statute Of Limitation On 2005 Quake Funds Gone Missing Due To Corruption :roll:

‘Embezzlement’ in 2005 quake funds, CJP review rehabilitation work in Balakot

Islamabad: Supreme Court Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has left for Balakot to review the rehabilitation work after hearing of the alleged embezzlement of billions of dollars financial assistance extended by the international community for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the 2005 earthquake survivors. Now that the weather is balmy, the "SeeJayPee " has decided to go for the "scenic drive to Balakot" in his sarkari provided air conditioned SUV, make a "few noises" in the Govt depts, rattle up some feathers there and return back to Isloo the next day , fresh !
However, the petitioner raised objection over the inclusion of 55 billion into the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP).
The Justice Nisar stated many Generals joined ERRA on deputation, adding the use of quake victims’ fund for other issues is a crime. It was rumoured at that time, that lots of faujis had their "dirty fingers" in the money funds that were received, mostly from Western countries . Due to the location (POK) of the earthquake , the faujis were controlling -the financial disbursement and the physical access to that region.
The CJP remarked during the suo motu hearing against alleged embezzlement in the 2005 earthquake funds. A three-member bench led by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case.During the hearing, an official of the finance ministry informed the court that 2.89 billion dollars were received in term of financial assistance, adding the ministry doesn’t have rest of the details.Chief Justice Saqib Nisar said as per ERRA officials the funds were received by the government and its only responsibility was to ensure implementation of the rehabilitation projects. Here is a good opportunity for Nisar to show that he is impartial in unearthing corruption and that he can "go after the faujis as well" .But doubt he has guts to confront the Army. After all, his own appointment is dependent on their "goodwill" . :mrgreen:
The chief justice remarked the government’s handling of funds has many complications. The court wants to know the actual financial assistance, the chief justice remarked.The petitioner informed the apex court that in 1985 the ERRA had 85 billion in its account and later, 55 billion was transferred to the account of BISP. If "fraudster Dar" was Finance Minister at that time, he could probably explain a lot of this "financial gol-mal" to the CJP . After all , he is a London trained CA and has helped Ganja, a dehati, financially "rise up" in the world . Ganja is now considered one of the richest man in Pakiland, thanks to Dar and his gol-mal :mrgreen:
The CJP remarked ERRA officials hired their relatives, adding that even generals arrived on deputation. The ERRA has so far received Rs290.85 billion, the court was informed. The Deep State is going to warn him to lay off this investigation ASAP :twisted:

Ganja Appointed Minister Of Interior Lashes Out At Army Appointed Chief Justice Of Pakiland - My Laard Saquib Nisar :mrgreen:

Ahsan Iqbal loses cool, tells CJP ‘enough is enough’

SLAMABAD: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Wednesday said that the civilian government holds as much dignity and self-respect as any judge or army official. “The CJP has no right to mock and insult us. Enough is enough,” Iqbal fumed while addressing participants at an event here. The (Honorable :roll: ) SeeJayPee is on an ego -trip and stepping on so many fragile Paki toes. Issuing Suo Motos, summoning all and sundry, running from pillar to post. All in the name of "providing justice" to the suffering Abduls . !
The interior minister said that Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Nisar Saqib should abandon the practice of throwing insults in every direction and have a big heart instead of reacting at every petty incident,” he said, adding that since the CJP had accused him of being involved in certain appointments, he should also issue a charge sheet against Iqbal. Like the "famous Phoren Minister" , the Sialkoti Khawaja Asif, Saquib is also known to firing cannons left and right from his loose mouth in violation of his "legal training" to choose his "words carefully" :mrgreen:
He further assured the gathering that he is committed to the cause of bringing Pakistan at par with developed nations and accentuated that politicians are deserving of the same amount of respect that the judiciary and army officials are bestowed with. Saquib has proved useful to the Fauji Establishment . He has been assigned the important task of demonizing and bad mouthing Ganja , his family , and Ganja's family business (ie his PML party !) . IMO, he has succeeded . But the long term damage to the fabric of Paki society is there for all to see . :twisted:
He said that there has recently been a rise in “patriot groups” in Balochistan and South Punjab. The fauj creates a mess in Balochistan . And in South Pakjab , by not clamping down on feudal justice, Islami groups, etc . And the nominal Govt is supposed to clean up the fauji mess. :roll:
Ahsan informed the gathering that Pakistan had dropped two catches as far as economic progress was concerned. Once in the 1960’s and then in the 1990’s, when economic reforms were cut short. Is this Minister of the Interior talking through his "Musharaf" :eek:
However, he said that everybody including the US and Europe is keen to invest in CPEC :lol: and on the brighter side, Gwadar’s master plan will trump the plan that was drafted for Hong Kong. Wow. The "other day", someone was comparing Gawadar ( never mind the water shortage, the security challenges :mrgreen: ) to Dubai. Now this "guy" has upped the stakes and is comparing Gawadar to Hongkong !!!

Keeping economy first: China urges Pakistan to keep tensions with India 'minimum'

ISLAMABAD: China has asked Pakistan to engage with India to keep tensions between the two countries to a minimum in order to maintain a conducive environment for timely completion of various projects under the ongoing multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project, which forms a part of Beijing's ambitious transnational Belt Road Initiative (BRI).

An editorial published in Pakistan based English newspaper Daily Times read, "Keeping the economy first is lesson that our state has yet to learn from its big brother in the hood."

The editorial also throws light upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi's informal talks, with Chinese President Xi Jinping scheduled to take place on April 27-28 in Wuhan city, ahead of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit in June.

According to it, "cautious" China's denial of constructing any hidden military base on the CPEC "could also be viewed through the prism of China's public reassurance to Islamabad that the Xi-Modi meeting scheduled for the end of this week will in no way dilute Sino-Pak friendship."

The editorial, however, expressing displeasure questions if Pakistan is playing its "due role," as the Editorial opines that the statement should have come from Pakistan.

"We appreciate the Chinese statement but cannot help wonder if the Pakistan Foreign Office and other policy quarters are playing their due role. For it is for Islamabad to keep its people and the informed and manage the complex regional and international relationships," the editorial read.

^^^^
Peregrine- ji :
- I am saying nothing new here when I say that the Pakis are the spoiler in India's rise as well as China' s rise in becoming "big world players" than what they are now.

PIA staff dance moves to Indian song become viral sensation :roll:

LAHORE – Jubilation and celebrations broke out at Islamabad and Lahore airports after Peoples Unity won Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) CBA union referendum 2018
Peoples Unity with the support of grand alliance bagged 4,228 votes, while Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz- backed Air Leauge could get 1,797 votes. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf supported Insaf Front secured only 78 votes.
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)-backed Peoples Unity leader Hidayatullah Khan has been elected as President of All Pakistan PIA CBA. Zardari Jr had earlier promised the workers of the discredited airline that he is opposed tooth and nail to privatization , and if his party (PPP) is in power, he will keep the airline state owned. The airline is bleeding the Paki Exchequer billions and billions of rupees each year ! Hence the celebration of the "victory" with "Bollywood borrowed songs". :mrgreen:

Population threat looms large - Talat Masood
The fast-growing population of Pakistan poses the most potent threat to the well-being of its people and the integrity of the state. Despite the lurking danger, there is hardly any realisation of this non-conventional threat. At the individual level and in meetings and conferences or in articles this danger is being raised by sane voices. Among the most articulate and forceful voice on the subject is that of Dr Zeba Sathar, the country director of the Population Council. Dr Sania Nishtar is another powerful voice that has passionately promoted healthcare and the importance of population control. There have been a few other prominent figures mostly among women. It is not surprising that there are relatively fewer names of men that have contributed to the cause of population control in the civil society or from among politicians, apart from a few exceptions.
For Pakistan an unchecked population growth that specialists’ project will reach over 400 million in the next 25 years poses the greatest security threat apart from its other deleterious effects. Our leaders can only be oblivious to this challenge at the peril of future generations.

( Immy's ) Marriaage On The Rocks . :roll: Latest "Marital Update". Read Here ! :mrgreen:

Bushra Maneka ‘returns to maternal home after dispute with Imran Khan’

ISLAMABAD – Bushra Maneka, the third wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, has reportedly returned to her maternal home after having a dispute with the politician.A local Urdu daily reports that the reason behind the feud between the newly married couple was the presence of Bushra’s son at Bani Gala residence of PTI chief for a time longer than necessary.In its report, the Daily Ummat states that it was agreed before the marriage that no one from Bushra’s family would stay for a longer period of time at Bani Gala; however, the presence of Maneka’s son from his former husband, Khawar Fareed Maneka irked Imran Khan. The same thing that was earlier being reported by an Indian Newspaper, is being confirmed here by this Isloo daily . So, it is an "open secret" now Immy has "issues" with the Peerni. and that has reached this stage. In western societies , it would be termed as a "separation " , but not a divorce . Maybe some parties ( mutual friends ) are working behind the scene to get them together again . ! Whether the return is temporary , or the return is permanent . Who knows ! But the timing of this marital dispute ,could not have been worse for Imran and PTI , from a political point of view anyways. Schadenfreude for the Sharifs of Jati Umra :mrgreen:
“Reham Khan, the second wife of PTI supremo, also had a skirmish with him after her son stayed at Imran Khan’s residence,” it added. Imran must have "developed" this acquired taste ( for privacy !) from his Londonistan days. Being from this part of the world, he should understand that "family" here means extended family and not the nuclear one that is common to western society !
According to the sensational report, Imran Khan’s sisters who were not happy at his third marriage were also residing in Bani Gala residence and were actively involved in its renovation, adding weight to the suspicions that something was fishy between Imran Khan and his wife. Reham Khan also did not meet the approval of Immy's sister. Maybe, next time around ( if there is a next time around !) Immy should "outsource" the whole "shindig", marry whoever they select and spend the rest of his life with the selected , making it absolutely clear that it is an "platonic marriage " only :twisted:
Another aspect, which gives credence to the rumours of dispute, is that Khan’s pet dogs living at the farm house. I thought it was an "Estate" ( along the lines of an English Gentleman's Manor ) .But i t is being referred here to a "mere farmhouse" , more like a "kothi" , than a Palace with "grounds" :eek: Bushra Maneka reportedly considers the dogs presence an interruption in her religious activities.Over the latest conflict between Imran Khan and his spiritual mentor-turned-wife, the PTI chief has yet to make any statement. Imran is "married" to the PTI party . Imran is a "hands off" manager. Imran does not "micromanage" . So, a press release of the PTI party will explain this personal matter of the Kaptaan . :mrgreen:


PS: Is the Peerni ( aka Bushra !) going to "revisit" the earlier predictions she had made of behalf of Immy ( PMship, 3 more kids via her ). Time will tell ! :twisted:

Kaptaan With The "Shuttlecock Peerni" In Happier Times :D

Indeed. Terroristan was "CREATED" for and "VOTED" by Indian Muslims but the Indian Muslims were NOT EVICTED by our Hindu Leaders like the Hindus, Sikhs and Jains were Slaughtered, Butchered and Forced to Flee the newly created Terroristan if they refused to CONVERT TO THE WORLD'S ONLY RELIGION OF PEACE IN THE LAND OF THE PURE AND THE HOME OF THE TERRORIST - both in the Western and Eastern Wings.

It is a fact of History that Terroristan was created by WINSTON CHURCHILL who was Worshiped by Jinnah. In this respect you should read the relevant books about the Correspondence of Churchill with Jinnah. Jinnah WAS NOT ALLOWED TO EITHER ADDRESS THE ENVELOPE(S) OR THE LETTER TO CHURCHILL. The Letters from Jinnah were addressed to Churchill's Secretary and Churchill's Secretary replied and Signed the Letters as if she was instructing Jinnah.

Thus Jinnah Knew and Accepted his real value - that of a Factum Factotum of Churchill Whom he OBEYED to the Letter. Indeed whilst in London Jinnah Invited Churchill to Claridges for a meal and the Secretary replied that SHE COULD NOT BE SEEN WITH JINNAH!

Over the Decades Terroristan has been the Factum Factotum - and that is putting it mildly - for any and all Anti-India Forces and I hope you will understand as to how low the Terroristanis have stooped!

There is IMO no Hope for Pakistan and one must take into cognisance that Terroristan will RATHER DESTROY ITSELF in its QUEST TO HARM INDIA than Devolop itself into a Universally Respected Entity!

Jinnah with his ham sandwich eating and alcohol drinking was a caricature of an Englishman in the Subcontinent. Why should Churchill have any other feelings towards him? Churchill had lived in India and knew the type. He used him as Englishmen usually did in such cases.

X Posted from the Conning Pakistan to Enrich China aka CPEC thread.

Hot air with regard to “Regional Game Changer” CPEC aka Conning Pakistan to Enrich China is dissipating as it comes out of the realm of feelgood fantasy and in touch with economic reality.

Express Tribune reports that project financing from the Taller than Himalayas, Deeper than Indian Ocean, Sweeter than Honey, As Close as Lips to Teeth, Stronger than Steel, Iron Brother of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the Peoples Republic China, is expected to dip by more than half to only USD 906 Million during the next fiscal year due to “completion of work on some major China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects and a snail’s pace progress on other schemes”. ET reports that “One of the main projects that is at the verge of collapse is up-gradation of Pakistan Railway’s Existing Mainline-1 (ML-I) project”.

The below bit valuing the very much overhyped “Regional Game Changer” CPEC initiate in toto at USD 60 Billion caught my eye because that USD 60 Billion amount was about the level of the FDI that India pulled got in 2016-17 (India’s FDI inflows at a record $60.1 billion in 2016-17) and less then the remittances of about USD 69 Billion India received in 2017 (India remains world's top remittance recipient country in 2017, says World Bank). I hope that the Punjabi Uniformed Jihadi Military Dominated Deep State of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan that given those figures touting CPEC as a Regional Game Changer particularly to an Indian audience makes the Islamic Republic look ridiculous:

The mainline project’s initial cost of $8.2 billion was part of $60 billion total CPEC investment and loans.


See here:

Chinese project financing will dip to $906m in FY2018-19

X Posted on the Indian Air Force News & Discussion Thread

Lockheed to sweeten India's fighter jet bid with F-35 technology

NEW DELHI: Lockheed Martin Corp. will provide latest combat jet technologies including a target tracking device aboard the F-16 aircraft that it plans to offer to India in its bid for the world’s largest order from the Indian Air Force.

The global defence giant will offer jets equipped with the advanced radar which is fitted on its fifth-generation combat jet, the F-35, as well as a helmet-mounted tracking system and a new radio data link system, Vivek Lall, vice president for strategy and business development at Lockheed Martin said Wednesday.

The bid also comes with an offer to shift its lone production line for F-16s from Fort Worth, Texas in the US to India as it takes on competitors Saab AB and Boeing Co. The variant being pitched is the F-16 Block 70.

“There are a lot of technologies that come into the F-16 from F-35 and F-22, including the latest radar on these platforms,” Lall said in an interview. “It is a contemporary, state-of-the-art platform.”

Getting state-of-the-art fighters is crucial for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the South Asian nation faces increased risks from neighboring Pakistan and China at a time when the Russian MiG jet -- India’s mainstay -- is being phased out. As part of that plan, India sought proposals from global manufacturers for 110 combat planes, a deal worth at least $15 billion.

The jet order is an attempt to modernise the South Asian nation’s defence forces, a plan which could cost as much as $250 billion over a 10-year period ending 2025. And Modi wants a significant part of it to be done locally under his ‘Make in India’ campaign, which aims to promote domestic manufacturing.

Lockheed Martin sees a huge export potential to provide over 200 F-16s to the global market if India chooses the aircraft, Lall said. The winner of the combat jet tender will be required to establish a production line within three years.

”We already see a global rise in the demand for F-16 from the 25 air forces around the world that already fly them. This export potential for the F-16s could be met through the exclusive production line we propose to put up in India,” Lall said.

Lockheed Martin has received the request for information from India for the F-16s to meet its air force requirement, he said

The degreased palm

Legalising certain kinds of bribe-giving can reduce bribe-taking.


Once the law is altered to grant the bribe-giver a competitive advantage :lol: , it will benefit them to give evidence against corrupt officials. Thus, such officials will be caught and such corruption will be discouraged, leading to an improvement in public-service delivery.

In addition to improving governance, such a change in anticorruption laws can have another indirect salubrious effect: it can create a positive investment climate as investors see that the nation is serious about improving governance and strengthening institutions.

Rupee sinks further in open market

KARACHI: The rupee found no place to stay against the greenback in the open market on Wednesday as the dollar attracted a record high price of Rs119.50.

The development comes only days after the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) held an emergency meeting with exchange companies after a similar downward move, urging their heads to do more to arrange supply of dollars in the open market.

Two representative organisations of the currency dealers held separate meetings with their members and decided to bring down the dollar rates and announced to penalise detractors if the guidelines are not followed.

“We, the members of Forex Association of Pakistan (FAP) decided to bring dollar to Rs118.70 for selling on Thursday morning,” said President FAP Malik Bostan. This is slightly lower than the closing rate of Rs119 on Wednesday, indicating that Rs119 has been accepted by the market forces.

Exchange Companies Association of Pakistan (ECAP) also decided the same rate for Thursday morning; Rs118.70 selling and Rs118.40 for buying. “In case of violation the ECAP will fine violators in the first instance, if repeated, the case will be referred to SBP by the ECAP,” said a press release.

Both the organisations have no legal authority to penalise its members for selling dollar at different rates as the open market has no fixed rate. However, exchange companies said in case of violations, the membership of a company can be cancelled.

The dollar rates would be decided twice every day — morning and evening — as per the demand and supply. Mr Bostan said SBP will decide about the supply of dollars.

In the past, the central bank had been supplying greenback in the open market to strengthen the exchange rate or bring down the dollar rates. However, this time the SBP is using the exchange companies to bring down these rates while applying no pressure to strengthen the local currency. This could might possibly mean that the STATE BANK OF TERRORISTAN IS SHORT OF THE US DOLLAR!

The wide gap in dollar rates of the two markets - interbank and open - has opened doors for Hundi and Hawala transactions that could hurt the remittances through legal channels.

Khawaja Asif disqualified under Article 62(1)(f), rules IHC 'with a heavy heart'
A three-member special bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday disqualified Khawaja Asif as a member of the parliament under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, read with section 99(1)(f) of the Act of 1976.

- PTI's Usman Dar files petition against Asif in 2017

- Says Asif did not declare his job in UAE, salary in the 2013 nomination papers

- Asif contends before court that he declared AED50,000 as foreign income in papers

- IHC reserves verdict in the case on April 10

- On April 13, SC rules disqualification under Article 62 (1)(f) is for life

"We declare that the Respondent [Asif] was not qualified to contest the General Election of 2013 from NA-110 as he did not fulfill the conditions described under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, read with section 99(1)(f) of the Act of 1976," reads the judgment.

Read: Disqualification under Article 62 (1)(f) is for life, SC rules in historic verdict

"The Registrar of this Court is directed to send certified copy of this judgment to the Election Commission for de-notifying the Respondent as Member of the National Assembly of Pakistan. A copy is also directed to be sent to the Speaker of National Assembly of Pakistan for information," it adds.

Article 62(1)(f), which sets the precondition for a member of parliament to be "sadiq and ameen" (honest and righteous), is the same provision under which former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by a five-judge SC bench on July 28, 2017, in the Panama Papers case. Likewise, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen was disqualified on Dec 15 last year by a separate bench of the apex court under the same provision.

'Judgement written with a heavy heart'

The judgement was announced by a three-member bench, comprising Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani.

It is not clear if Asif would have to step down from his post as foreign minister following the denotification from ECP.

While concluding the judgement, the bench observed that "it is not a pleasant duty for any court to be called upon to examine and exercise powers of judicial review which may lead to an elected representative being disqualified as Member of the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament)".

The judgement observed that it would have been appropriate if the political party to which the petitioner belongs, the PTI, had raised the issue at hand in the parliament before invoking the jurisdiction of the court.

"We have handed down this judgment with a heavy heart not only because a seasoned and accomplished political figure stands disqualified but more so because the dreams and aspirations of 342,125 registered voters have suffered a setback."

Asif, while talking to Geo's Hamid Mir, said that he will challenge the verdict in the Supreme Court. "I never concealed my iqama," he told the anchor.

PTI's 'victory'

Petitioner Usman Dar of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), who lost elections to Asif in 2013, had filed the petition last year, seeking Asif's disqualification for holding a UAE iqama (visa).

Calling Asif an underworld don, he give the credit of this "success" to PTI chief Imran Khan. He also thanked Jahangir Tareen — PTI leader who was also disqualified under the same Article (62)(f) last year.

Supporters of the PTI started chanting slogans of "Go Nawaz Go" outside the court after the verdict was announced in a packed courtroom.

The petition filed by Usman Dar had said that Asif was entitled to draw a salary which was his receivable asset; however, since he did not declare it in the nomination paper while contesting the 2013 general elections from NA-110, he is not eligible to hold the National Assembly seat.

The petition pointed out that the iqama of Asif was renewed on June 29, 2017 and was valid till June 28, 2019, which established that in spite of being a federal minister, Asif “intends to surreptitiously and secretly continue with his full-time employment with IMECL in violation of his oath of office under the Constitution”.

'Iqama was not concealed'

In his reply, Asif contended before the court that the petitioner had concealed from the court that the issue related to iqama had not only been adjudicated by the Election Tribunal but the Supreme Court decided this case in his (Asif) favour.

It said that the petitioner has relied upon all those documents which Asif had already submitted to the returning officer at the time of filing of nomination papers in 2013. It further said that the petitioner had approached the high court by concealing material facts and his conduct and motive are based on mala fides.

According to his reply, till the tax year 2011-2012, Asif received AED50,000 and declared it as foreign income in the nomination papers.

Last year, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was disqualified as the prime minister in the Panama Papers case after a five-member SC bench concluded that he had been 'dishonest' by not declaring his receivable salary as the chairman of the board of Capital FZE in his nomination papers for the 2013 election.

Leading up to the verdict, Sharif's counsel — Khawaja Harris — had conceded before the court that Hassan Nawaz, the prime minister's younger son, was the owner of Capital FZE and Sharif its chairman.

The purpose of the arrangement, explained the counsel, was solely to secure an iqama which would allow the prime minister easy access to the Gulf state "in his years in exile".

This is a developing story that is being updated as the situation evolves. Initial reports in the media can sometimes be inaccurate. We will strive to ensure timeliness and accuracy by relying on credible sources such as concerned, qualified authorities and our staff reporters.

"Loud Mouth Asif " Trapped Into The Sadiq And Ameen Net By PTI Competition . :mrgreen:

Khawaja Asif disqualified under Article 62(1)(f), IHC rules 'with a heavy heart' ( For details , see Peregrine-ji's above post !)

One more "victory" for Imran. Also like POTUS, this will serve as a diversion from his "domestic ( Peerni !) troubles" . Maybe, this was what Immy was alluding to , when he stated this week "that a big wicket is going to fall". Maybe, in violation of confidentiality rules , he was "informed in advance" of Asif's disqualification on the pretext of the "strict Islamic rule " governing the Paki Constitution. :mrgreen:

PS: Is Immy considered "Sadiq and Ameen" , ( ie righteous ) under Islamic Law with 2 failed marriages, the 3rd almost on the rocks, and plus a child sired out of wedlock . Not to speak of various liaison with reputable and not so reputable women. Go figure ! :roll:

All Decks On Board ! There Is A Mini Mutiny In The Paki Supreme Court Against The Paki Fauj :mrgreen:

SC lashes out at security agencies for failing to submit new report on Faizabad sit-in

Justice Qazi Faez Isa of the Supreme Court on Wednesday lashed out at security agencies for "failing to produce a new report" on last year's Faizabad sit-in.
"Who is paying you? Who is paying the Inter-Services Intelligence? No one should consider themselves above the law," he said while addressing the deputy attorney general. "The army did not establish this country and the state will not be ruled on the whims and wishes of anyone." Now ," :mrgreen: See Jay Pee My Laard Nisar" is faced with an internal revolt as well
Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) ( this is the "guy" who is going after the Ahmedis as if there is no tomorrow !) also criticised the military on Wednesday, questioning its involvement in commercial activities.
On Wednesday, Justice Siddiqui remarked: "No army in the world is involved in commercial activities but our's is selling even cement, meat and bread." :lol: Better watch out. He can lose his job by not enough "Sadeeq and Ameen" :twisted:
"They want to earn as per a commercial model but want to be dealt with like an armed force," he said. Justice Siddiqui went on to say that people have been made mental, economic and moral slaves. What are the Paki Justices "smoking" these days :mrgreen:

Reham Khan suggests dog problems are to blame for Imran Khan’s most recent matrimonial struggles

In the article, Reham chronicles how Imran only liked ‘handsome’ dogs, and how he had recklessly run over a dog once whose lack of ears made Imran dislike him.
Reham suggested that the dog responsible for Imran Khan’s troubles with his present wife could be the one Imran’s ‘favourite’ PTI candidate the ‘very passionate Zartaj Gul’—to quote Reham Khan—brought into the house.


Battle of the ***ches!

Govt to unveil economic survey today

The Survey will reveal the monetary cost of Pakistan’s war against terror that could jump to US$125 billion.
Figures in the survey will also highlight a drop in poverty in Pakistan from 29 percent of the population living under the poverty line to 25%.


Uh Oh!! Look out world! Sialkoti statistics stirred with victimology and topped off with baki chest hairs = new zam zam cocktail.
