Imran's NAYA PAKISTAN Has "No Room" For These "Lovely" Paki Ayeshas In The Recently Announced Male Economic Club :mrgreen:

List of female Pakistani economists who could have been on the economic advisory council

People still don’t understand how hard it is for women to leave their comfort zones to go out and work for a better future. Having a stable career and keeping your houses on point can both be very difficult task. However women still aren’t credited for their work and achievements, their positions are given to their fellow male peers.

Sharia says that "a woman's place in her name . At the "service" of her Abdul 24/7 , 365 days a year" ! And Pakistan IS an Islamic Republic !
The hope of ‘Naya Pakistan’ was given to isn’t by the chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaaf and with that we thought there will be things getting better for Pakistan especially women. :roll: An economic council is formed to overlook the economic crisis Pakistan is facing however all 18 members of the council are men!

Pakistan is an Islamic Republic . Sharia says that women can only travel with a Mahram (male companion). Therefore to avoid complications, The Kaptaan heeded the advice of the Peerni and disqualified "competent female economists" . Case closed ! :mrgreen:
We present 7 economists who can be a part of this council and we can defy the male domination!

Sorry "rules are rules" unless an authoritative fatwa- allowing women to be Members of said Council - is issued either by The Amir of Jamia Binori ( Karachi ) or its equivalent at The Seminary Of Akhora Khattack ( Maulana Sami of Taliban Fame and an Ally Of Imran !) :twisted:

Veteran Paki Journo Absolves Kaptaan And Peerni Of Meddling Into Gondal Affair ! Hints That Imran Played The Role Of A "Homebreaker" Contrary To Common Belief That The Divorce Of The Peerni Was Amicable :shock:

PM Imran has nothing to do with DPO transfer, Sohail Waraich lays bare facts
The News International - Sohail Waraich
Sept 2, 2018

As the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government recovers from the embarrassment caused by an incident involving Khawar Farid Maneka, one of Pakistan's senior journalists has come up with yet another twist to the story .
Host of Geo TV's "Aik Din Geo K Sath" show and columnist Sohail Waraich says neither Prime Minister Imran Khan nor his wife Bushra Imran have anything to do with the transfer of Pakpattan District Police Officer (DPO) Rizwan Gondal.
Hard to "swallow" this in the conspiracy laden environ of Pakiland :mrgreen:
According to media reports Gondal was reportedly transferred at the behest of Khawar Farid Maneka, the former husband of Bushra Imran, after the Punjab police officials offended him by intercepting his vehicle.
No media reports have suggested that the Peerni and her Ex are NOT on good terms !
In his weekly column, the inimitable journalist wrote in Daily Jang that the actual story is completely different from what has been largely reported.He goes on to reveal that an intense tug of war and acrimony persisted between Maneka and Bushra Imran, rejecting the common perception that the divorce between the two took place in an amicable manner. IOW labeling The Kaptaan as a "homebreaker "
Pumping up ratings for his employer's newspaper :roll:
Sohail Waraich says the differences of personalities led to the divorce between the two despite their efforts to keep the union intact. All the arrangements and interventions from close friends to save the relationship also failed.
Earlier Paki media reports gave the impression that Maneka just "walked out " of the union in awe of the Peerni's predictive power and her "visions" about Imran assuming the PM ship of Pakiland and her future in becoming a "mother" again through Imran !
The mistrust between the parents of five children continued to deepen even after Bushra Mankeka tied the knot with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan.
Why did this news "leak" out now and not earlier ! Dal mae kuch kala hai ! :mrgreen:
In the run up to the July 25 elections one of Maneka's borther, a canidate of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, openly expressed his resentment of their former sister in law.
In the first incident that took place on August 5, Sohail Waraich writes that Mubashira Maneka and Ibrahim Maneka, children of Farid Maneka and Bushra, were intercepted by the police. A heated argument ensued between police and Ibrahim who contacted his father by mobile phone. Maneka rushed to the spot and took his children away. Peerni estranged with her offsprings :roll:
According to an inquiry report prepared by the Punjab Police, Ibrahim said in his statement that the incident took place when he along with his sister was walking to the shrine of Baba Faird. After the incident Khawar Farid conveyed to his ex wife that the police had acted at her behest.
Angered over the incident, Ibrahim and Mubashira stopped talking to their mother. On the other hand, Bushra Imran thought it to be the work of Khawar Farid's brother who was pitting children against their mother.
Washing "dirty linen" of the Khawar family on the front pages of the News International English Paper :roll:
Khawar Farid also asked the DPO to reveal the name of the person behind the whole episode. "What could the DPO have told when there was nothing to tell," Sohail Waraich wrote. Before the dust had settled, came August 23. Khawar Farid, his new wife, ( so, does not "take long " to tie the knot with someone else :roll: ) servants and guards were intercepted by police while they were on their way to the Peer Ghani State.
An inquiry report prepared by Additional IG Abu Bakar Khuda Baksh, Khawar Farid Maneka didn't pull up when he was signaled by police.Maneka, however, argued that he neither saw any police post nor any red light. According to the columnist, the police chased the two cars of Maneka's convoy and intercepted them.
Farid Maneka came out of his vehicle and introduced himself. Officers were insisting for vehicle search suspecting presence of illegal arms in the custody of Maneka's guards.Maneka then contacted DPO Rizwan Gondal and informed him of the situation. The DPO, the columnist wrote, asked the officers to let Maneka go.
The second incident strengthened his suspicion that the police were acting on someone's orders and Bushra Bibi was the prime suspect thinking that she was doing all this out of vengeance.Ahsan Jamil Iqbal, a family friend of Maneka's, intervened after both the sides exchanged allegations.
Bushra Imran ( AKA Peerni ) is of course above this petty fray . Makes sense IMO, to ask someone else ( as her "reputation" and her livelihood is at stake. The optics factor !) .
Jameel approached Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar whom he had acquainted during a couple of meetings in Bani Gala and brought the issue into his notice.Additional IG Abu Bakar Khuda Baksh in his inquiry report wrote that neither Punjab IG nor another police officer had asked DPO Gondal to apologize to the Manekas.But a suggestion indeed came up during a meeting at the Chief Minister House that either Gondal should apologize or give explanation to Ibrahim Maneka.Meanwhile, the issue surfaced in the media and the transfer of DPO became politicized.
It is almost a blow by blow account of the " whole mess"
Explaining the entire episode, Sohail Waraich wrote that two different forces of the Punjab Police; Highway Patrolling and the Elite Force, have intercepted the Maneka family.Both the incidents took place late at night when police see everybody with suspicion and don't hesitate in manhandling citizens .Such incidents are commonplace in all of Punjab and one of them happened in Pakpattan, but the transfer of DPO became the talk of town just because the issue involved Punjab CM, First Lady and her former husband.
Luckily or unluckily, coincidently or otherwise, both the Kaptaan and The Peerni are in La-Whore today . Maybe, this matter can be trashed out / settled in the privacy of their bedroom when they take a well deserved "rest" from their respective hectic schedules ( she with her Peer- Sheer Business , he with the political "mess" that he has inherited ) . The matter can be put to rest once and for all , before it does any further political damage to this "political marriage" :twisted:

PS: If this is any indicator, it seems that the marriage of The Kaptaan and The Peerni is going to be like the unconventional Hollywood (or power marriages !) where each spouse is professionally employed at his or her place of employment ( one in DC or NYC, the other in LA or Chicago or in this case Pakpattan and Isloo ) . Once in a while , they meet , where both have "business" there ( eg . Immy in La-Whore and Peerni in La-Whore ) Such marriages "accumulate" a lot of stress ( hopefully not in this case because distances are not that long. And both can "exercise their authority " :mrgreen: !)

A well balanced article on the Pompeo - Imran phone call fiasco

Making a statement
The News On Sunday - Geo News- Wajid Ali Syed
Sept 2, 2018
Traditionally, a US sitting president calls incoming heads of state or government they deem important to offer felicitations on their victory. Since Pakistan has been a critical ally and mostly maintained an extraordinarily sensitive relationship with the United States for decades, the congratulatory exchange becomes a norm.
President George W. Bush telephoned Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, and later President Zardari,..
Keeping up with the practice, the Obama White House also issued a munificent statement, just a day after Pakistan’s general elections in 2013,...
Four days later, after the PML-N emerged victorious, President Barack Obama spoke with Nawaz Sharif to congratulate him on his party’s success....
This time, after the 2018 elections, there was an apparent change.
This POTUS , a "friend" of Modi-ji has decided a call "a spade a spade" :mrgreen:
“It’s out of ordinary for a US official not to call a new leader in Pakistan,” says Dr Marvin Weinbaum, a venerable expert on Pakistan US relations, adding “normally it’s from the White House.”
This POTUS is "different" !
The very first statement, that the State Department issued post election results, actually questioned the fairness and transparency of the polling process.
The Paki Media as well as the whole world was questioning the fairness of the whole exercise !
In that context, the United States shared concerns about flaws in the pre-voting electoral process, as expressed by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.
The difference between the statements issued in 2013 and 2018 post-elections was distinct.
The first high level contact between the Trump administration and the new government in Pakistan was made four days after Imran Khan took office. The US Secretary of State spoke with the prime minister to “wish him success”.
So far so good !
The readout that followed stated: “Secretary Pompeo expressed his willingness to work with the new government towards a productive bilateral relationship.” It then added, “Secretary Pompeo raised the importance of Pakistan taking decisive action against all terrorists operating in Pakistan and its vital role in promoting the Afghan peace process.”
The Imran Khan-led government took offense to the last paragraph and reacted strongly. Rejecting the American read-out about the substance of the call, it insisted: “Pakistan takes exception to the factually incorrect statement issued by US State department on phone call between PM Khan and Secretary Pompeo”. The Foreign Office spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal wrote on Twitter, “There was no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan. This should be immediately corrected.”
Twitter is NOT the communication medium of diplomacy :D
The blatant manner demonstrated publicly on Twitter by the Foreign Office turned the high-level contact into a full-blown controversy. It also exposed that the new government lacks knowledge and handling pattern of tactful foreign relation matters.
A lesson for the future, for the "esteemed doctor" of the Paki FO !
In response to this dramatic over-reaction, the State Department asserted that it stands by its statement. “In the readout the Secretary notes that he spoke with the new prime minister and expressed his willingness to work with the new government toward a productive bilateral relationship,” the department spokesperson Heather Nauert said adding, “the beginning of the call or the call itself was a good call and a good discussion toward our working with the new government and the new administration.”
All political and diplomatic observers I spoke to thought it obvious that the US officials would talk to the Pakistani leaders about issues of mutual concerns. They think the Khan government is merely trying to appear bold and score domestic points.
The Echendee factor !
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi appeared before the media a day later only to support the Foreign Office’s stance on the issue. In his own polite way he remarked, “the impression that has been given in their [U.S.] press release, in which they are mentioning ‘terrorists operating in Pakistan’, is contrary to the facts. And I am saying this with full confidence.”
He had to "eat his words" as well !
Yet, for experts, the disagreement on the substance of the call was too trivial to be handled so brashly. They argue the cause of this row suggests how sensitive things were between the two countries and fear that hawkish behaviour from either side could derail chances of working together.
It is noticeable that the Trump administration officials view the new Pakistani government less favourably. But, at the same time, the US has been insisting it wants to work with the new leadership on matters of mutual interest. Foremost is securing the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and bringing the Taliban to negotiating table, besides economic support that Pakistan desperately requires
Pakiland has still some levers in Afghanistan . It controls the in and out gates to Afghanistan. And it is an "Atomi Takat" to boot !
A senior US diplomat appreciated Imran Khan’s statement about peace in the region. “The issues are tough, no doubt, but together, I know we can translate these shared interests into further action that achieves our mutual objectives,” Ambassador Alice Wells told a gathering last month.
To defuse the situation, the experienced Foreign Minister also stressed that, “mistakes are made and it could have been made, and what we have stated [about the call] is correct. I think we have to move on, and if he [Pompeo] is coming on September 5, we will try to steer our bilateral relations with America towards a better path.”Even though the Pompeo-Khan phone fiasco erupted unnecessarily, it’s encouraging to note that there were efforts to water it down. The same FO spokesman Dr Faisal has now suggested that, “We want an end to this [telephone] matter and want to move forward politically.”

The BS Of Naya Pakistan !

Hundreds of students, NGOs protest against disappearance of a teacher Essa Memon in Larkana
Daily Times
Aug 30, 2018

Hundreds of students of the Government Muslim High Secondary School flocked to Larkana press club on Wednesday while protesting against an enforced disappearance of a teacher Muhammad Essa Memon allegedly by masked men a day earlier.Reportedly, Sindh United Party (SUP) leaders, Government Secondary Teachers Association (GSTA) representatives, Sindhi Adabi Sangat (SAS) leaders, social activists, his parents and fellow teachers also participated in the demonstration while holding banners and chanting full-throat slogans “Release Our Teacher” and “Release our Baba”.
Meanwhile, SUP leader Dr Mazhar Mughal, his mother Ayesha Memon, Essa Memon’s family members, social worker Hyder Joyo and the school’s teachers claimed that the abducted teacher was not involved in any anti-state activity while they believed in parliamentary politics only.
They said that Essa was reading a book in the library of Municipal High School when he was whisked away by masked men.
Government Secondary Teachers Association (GSTA) leaders including GM Abro, Samad Khokhar and others strongly condemned his disappearance.
Send a tweet to Madame Jalebi and follow it up with the HRC of Pakistan !
They appealed to the concerned authorities and law enforcement agencies for an immediate release of Essa Memon.

Many Pakis Sense That Immy Is Tilting Toward Iran In Its Feud With Saudia !

Pakistan should be in the right side of history and have strong ties with Iran
Some samplings :
You fail to understand the mentality of certain Persian supremacists, Pakistan means zilch to them. Even Farsi speaking Afghanistani citizens said Pakistan was better to them than Iran was, even though they spoke the same language. Being on "Irans side" is not akin to being on the right side of history. Pakistan should look to.....Pakistan, and not look to cement ties with the current Iranian regime, they're closer to India than they are to Pakistan, how did Yadav enter PK? Iran. Have good relations, but stay neutral on Saudi-Iran disputes and realize the limits of having a good relationship with the current Iranian Regime. Don't get me started on Wilayat e faqih and other such things Iran has been spreading in Pakistan..

Then the discussion veers into "forbidden territory"- the "hotness" or otherwise of Saudi Ayeshas ! :twisted:

I support iran more but Saudi women are hotter. :roll:

I respectfully call bullshit. Persian women over Arab women any day of the week. Also, I wonder how one can judge hotness when all they see is walking talking black shuttlecocks (Cause that's how it usually is in Saudi Arabia). I guess they have nice ankles?? At least in Iran they have more options. Relatively speaking.

Chini Internet ( And Hopefully Censorship !) System "Almost Ready" .

CPEC digital information channel ‘working well’: official
Sept 3, 2018
ARY News

BEIJING: The “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) digital information channel”, based on China-Pakistan optical cable, and serving the CPEC and global customers and partners were fully connected, said a top Chinese official.Zhang Zhiyong, deputy general manager of China Telecom Group Co., Ltd informed the participants of 6th China-Eurasia Expo in Urumqi that China Telecom will use the opening of China-Pakistan optical cable as an opportunity to expand the field of communication cooperation and jointly promote the construction of a series of core projects of the China-Pakistan Information Corridor with Pakistani partners.Close economic cooperation provides a solid information and communication guarantee, while information technology contributes to the digital transformation of the society and the development of the digital economy.
. Will be accompanied by the Chini Censorship System as well !
Speaking on the occasion, Tan Yijun, Executive Vice President of China Telecom International Co., Ltd said that on July 13 this year, the 2,950-kilometer-long China-Pakistan optical cable from Urumqi to Rawalpindi was fully connected and tested well.
According to Belt Road Initiative website, the Pakistan-China Optical Fibre Cable project provides 3G and 4G services to Pakistan. The cable spans a distance of 2,950 kilometers, connecting Rawalpindi (Punjab) with Khunjerab (Gilgit Baltistan) at the Chinese border at a height of 4,700 metres above the sea level, northwards to Urumqi in Xinjiang Autonomous Region (China). The large channel of digital information in the corridor was officially completed and put into commercial use, which greatly shortened the delay between China and Pakistan and international communications.
In the past, the communication between Beijing and Islamabad passed through the submarine cable, and the delay was 180 milliseconds; now, through the China-Pakistan optical cable, the delay is only 81.8 milliseconds. This is of great significance to industries such as multinational financial transactions and telemedicine.
According to him, Pakistan’s special communication organization will also cooperate with Pakistan’s largest telecommunications operator, Pakistan Telecom Co., Ltd., to connect land cables and submarine cables across Asia and Europe through Pakistan, and promote interconnection between China and Central Asia, Europe and Africa.

It is only a matter of time, before social media is muzzled in Pakiland !

The Plot Thickens ! Is The Sindhi Leader Sharjeel Memon Being Demonized By The Pakjabi Chief Justice Of Pakiland :roll:

No traces of alcohol found in Sharjeel Memon’s blood: medical report

The medical report of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Sharjeel Memon revealed that there were no traces of alcohol in his blood.The blood samples were taken at noon on September 1 and were sent to two different hospitals. “There is no trace of plasma alcohol and ethanol in his blood,” the report revealed.Sindh government will now send this report to Supreme Court.On September 1, Sharjeel Inam Memon, who was at Karachi’s Ziauddin Hospital on the pretext of illness, was found in possession of “liquor bottles and drugs” after Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar paid a surprise visit to the hospital he was being treated in.“When Sharjeel Memon was asked about the liquor, he said they were not his,” Justice Nisar said, relating his surprise early-morning visit before hearing cases at the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry.

In Pakiland "everything" is clear as mud . Nothing can be ruled out . Maybe, the blood samples were not Memon's . But one thing is definitely clear. There is some sort of suspicion between the Sindhi politico and the Pakjabi Chief Justice !

Foreign Minister Qureshi In "Damage Control" Mode

FM Qureshi responds to US aid cancellation, Imran-Macron phone call
The News International
Sept 2, 2018

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the $300m fund cancelled by the United States was not aid but reimbursement for the losses incurred by Pakistan in the war against terror. “U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting Pakistan on September 5. We will present our point of view to the US diplomat,” FM Qureshi told media persons at Foreign Office on Sunday.“We will try to revive the stalled bilateral ties according to the principles of mutual respect and understanding.”

Tone definitely subdued ! Pakistan cannot afford to not get $ 300 Million . But then they have in the past submitted fictitious invoices as well !
"It was not aid. It was our money which was spent on the country’s participation in the US war against terrorism, he said
Responding to a question, Qureshi said that the telephonic call between PM Imran Khan and French President Emmanuel Macron was rescheduled for Monday.“We received a call from the French president. As Prime Minister was busy, it was mutually agreed to reschedule the call for Monday,” he said.
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, in particular, had an opportunity to authorize $300 million in CSF funds through this summer - if he saw concrete Pakistani actions to go after insurgents. Mattis chose not to, a U.S. official told Reuters.“Due to a lack of Pakistani decisive actions in support of the South Asia Strategy the remaining $300 (million) was reprogrammed,” Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Kone Faulkner said.Faulkner said the Pentagon aimed to spend the $300 million on “other urgent priorities” if approved by Congress. He said another $500 million in CSF was stripped by Congress from Pakistan earlier this year, to bring the total withheld to $800 million.

IMO, the $ 300 Million is probably going to be used as a bargaining chip when Pompeo is here on a visit !

Economics Professor Of Ahmedi Origin Used As A Political Football Between PTI And PPP !

Shehla Raza deletes controversial tweet regarding Atif R Mian
Sept 3, 2018
The News International

ISLAMABAD: Senior PPP leader and Sindh Minister for Women Development Syeda Shehla Raza deleted her controversial tweet and apologised after severe backlash.The PPP minister had targeted, Atif R Mian, a newly appointed member of Prime Minister Imran Khan's Economic Advisory Council.
She had claimed that the globally acclimated economist belongs to a minority community and shouldn't have been assigned the task. This statement of her triggered a stream of condemnation on social media.

Atif Mian, a professor of Economics at Princeton in NJ, is an Ahmedi ; therefore he is a pariah as far as Pakiland is concerned !
Later, the party too dissociated itself from her controversial statement.

Just imagine . Pakis are willing to take advice from Chinis, Amreekans , but not from one of their own ! On the pretext that he is not a "Muslim" !

Paki Journo Laments The Culture Of Sycophancy, Unquestioned Loyalty And Yesmanship That Is Slowly Taking Roots In Imran's Naya Pakistan :twisted:

Let’s not pretend
The News International - Syed Talat Hussain
Sept 3, 2018

Last week, while responding to a question regarding news about Washington sharing the transcript of the controversial call between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Foreign Office spokesman faced an awkward moment: he couldn’t confirm the news because that would have meant embarrassing his institution and the prime minister. And he couldn’t deny it because that could provoke the US State Department to make the content of the call officially available. The spokesman wriggled out of the bind by using a classic fudge: “We would want the episode to end. The foreign minister has commented on this in detail. Politically, we need to move on”.
In other words, his response to the lingering question of which of the two, Pompeo or the prime minister, lied about the contents of the call was: ‘End it. Move on’. He might have also added: “Pretend it never happened.” The reaction, while disingenuous, was also profound because it captured what has become a disease of epidemic proportions among wielders of power. On every important count, they simply want to kill debate, shove national embarrassments under the carpet and – while laying thick layers of new deceptions atop denials – point to fictional demands of national interest to plead silence.
Just like the Roman rulers who would push their unruly lot into frenzies of violent sports events to distract their potentially politically dangerous energies, the powerful corridors have designed tempting portals of pointless contests to keep the nation busy in trivia while they extract more advantages out of the system and tighten their grip over the levers of power.
There is nothing wrong with being wrong. What is abominable is open-chested defence of known absurdities, travestying of reality, and pretensions contrary to the truth. You can fool all the people some time and some people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Past rulers, both military and civilian, learnt the value of this Abraham Lincoln quote by ignoring it. PM Imran, who often cited this when he was in the opposition, would do well to hang it on the front wall of his office and ask his ministers to do the same.
Right now it is honeymoon time . The journo should give The Kaptaan a break ( three months max !) :mrgreen:

US spells out terms of engagement with Pakistan - Anwar Iqbal
WASHINGTON: As the United States and the new Pakistani government prepare for their first face-to-face talks in Islamabad on Wednesday, the Trump administration has made it clear that Pakistan will have to back the US strategy in Afghanistan if it wants good relations with Washington.

The strategy — as defined by both the State Department and the Pentagon this week — is to use a combination of military and diplomatic pressures to force the Taliban to work with Kabul for restoring peace in Afghanistan.

Washington believes that a working relationship between the Taliban and Kabul can lead to an honourable withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

Washington sent its first clear message to Islamabad last week when US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo telephoned Prime Minister Imran Khan and asked the latter to take “decisive action against all terrorists operating in Pakistan”.
Initially, Islamabad disputed the US version of this conversation, but later withdrew its objection.

The second message came earlier last week when US Defence Secretary James Mattis said at a news briefing in Washington that Secretary Pompeo and the US military chief were going to Islamabad to urge Pakistan to play its role in fighting terrorists.

Then on Saturday, the Pentagon announced that it was seeking to reallocate $300 million in aid to Pakistan due to Islamabad’s lack of “decisive actions” in support of America’s Afghan strategy.

But so far, the most detailed explanation of the US terms of engagement came from a senior Pentagon official — Assistant Secretary of Defence for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs Randall G. Schriver.

In his talk at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington, Mr Schriver emphasised several key points: no restoration of US security assistance to Pakistan before the war in Afghanistan ends, more restrictions may be imposed and Washington has serious concerns about Pakistan’s growing economic ties with China.

But he also said that the Trump administration was willing to give Imran Khan and his team some “space” to make their policies.

“In terms of separating what was said during a campaign and what he said since the election, we want to give him (Mr Khan) space to find the opportunities to improve things with India,” he said.

Mr Schriver also dispelled the perception that Washington was trying to destabilise Pakistan.

“We are not interested in a failed Pakistan by any stretch of the imagination. So, we want them to be successful,” said the top US official while indicating that Washington could also work with international financial institutions to help boost the ailing Pakistani economy because “economy is going to be the key” to Pakistan’s success.

In earlier statements, US officials had indicated that they might not support Pakistan’s bid to seek an estimated $12 billion from the International Monetary Fund until what they said Islamabad stopped supporting certain Taliban groups in Afghanistan.

Mr Schriver not only offered conditional support to Pakistan’s efforts to seek international or bilateral loans, but also acknowledged the key role that Islamabad has to play in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table.

“There is no question we need Pakistan’s help in encouraging, persuading, pressuring Taliban to come to the negotiating table, deal with the national unity government under President Ghani and talk about a future where they are included, not through force, but through a political process,” he said.

He defended the Trump administration’s decision to suspend security and certain economic assistance to Pakistan, saying: “We have made decisions on curbing assistance and putting constraints on our relationship with Pakistan as a means to try to persuade them to adopt that course and use their influence on the Taliban.”

But such decisions were regularly evaluated, he added.

“We are still evaluating as to the impact of that. It’s certainly not where we want it to be. But it’s something that, I think, we will stick with and certainly the end stage should be one that we can all agree on,” he said.

Mr Schriver also said that the US was not yet ready to resume its assistance to Pakistan.

“I think our approach of cutting assistance and pressuring Pakistan on their relationship with the Taliban — persuading them to come to the table, dealing with terrorist networks — will be sustained,” he said. “It is a matter of dealing with suspicions and distrust and the mix of all this.”

Explaining why the Trump administration wanted to end the Afghan war now, Mr Schriver said: “Seventeen years is long enough to be involved in a war. We need this to end. We want this to end.”

Responding to a question about the Pakistani economy, Mr Schriver said: “I don’t have a good answer on the economic difficulties and challenges that Pakistan finds itself in. What I can say is, if you look at other examples where countries went all-in or largely-in with China, the results have not been particularly good. There has been an erosion of sovereignty and an erosion of control. There are many examples of that.”

The US, he said, was willing to help Pakistan.

“So, if our friends in Pakistan want to talk about a way out of that or want to talk about ways to strengthen their economy and deal with that, I am sure we would be open to that in trying to work with Pakistan — bilaterally or through international institutions — to try to get them on a better path,” he said.

Paki Analist Faults Qureshi On Pompeo - Imran Phone Fiasco . He Should Have Been In Isloo Not Multan !

Fathering Pakistan’s foreign policy
Ayesha Siddiqa
The Daily Times
Aug 30, 2018

It was just a few days ago that the new Foreign Minister (FM), Shah Mehmood Qureshi aggressively laid claim to taking ownership of foreign policy making. Watching him thump his fist on the dice, I so much wanted him to read legal cases in which parentage is contested between the biological and foster parents. In many cases, supervision and control of the child is granted to foster parents because of emotional dependence of the child or the fact that their economic conditions are comparatively better. Not that the biological parent cannot reclaim parentage, but re-possession becomes impossible unless a definitively convincing case is made.
The FM indeed did not have a good start, with the fiasco of the telephone call between the new Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The Foreign Office (FO) reportedly claims to have been in the dark about who advised the new head of government to take the call, or what the conversation was. It is quite obvious that Qureshi was not in the loop. According to the minister’s own press briefing on August 24, he was in Multan during the call and was called by his secretary about the fiasco. It is unlikely that the FO did not know, as it is informed in advance about such VVIP calls. Someone from the State Department must have contacted someone at the FO via the US embassy in Islamabad to confirm that the PM was ready for the call that took place on August 23 at around 7PM (PST). Interestingly, Qureshi went to Multan instead of waiting with the PM for the call. Unless instructed otherwise by the PM, the call would have been listened to and notes taken by someone at the FO.
Qureshi "neglected" his duties as FM, by not staying back in Isloo !

Paki Model Commits Suicide In Posh Area Of La-Whore !

Italy-based Pakistani model found hanging from ceiling in Lahore’s DHA


LAHORE – A 26-year-old fashion model was found dead in her home in Lahore’s Defence area under mysterious circumstances on Saturday, police said.
Anam Naveed Tanoli, a model and a fashion designer, returned from Italy just two months ago.Her body was found hanging — in what was suspected to be a suicide by police — and shifted to Lahore General Hospital for post-mortem examination.
According to Defence-B police, the hospital confirmed Tanoli had committed suicide. They have recorded the statement of the victim’s mother.

Modelling is a "risky profession" in Islamic Pakistan, IMO

Supreme Court Abolishes 3-Year LLB Programs

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has put an end to three year LLB programs across the country. The order was given on Friday when the court ordered a law college reform, abolishing law degrees earned via a three-year program. This court ruling will take effect from December 31, 2018. Furthermore, law degrees will now be based on a five-year course.

jihad on water, jihad on sea, jihad riding on the chest of water. This jihad is 10 times more important than the jihad on land

10 years on from LeT's 26/11 attacks on Mumbai, JeM writings call for further seaborne attacks on India
First Post
Tufail Ahmed
Aug 31, 2018

India will mark the 10th anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks on 26 November. A decade ago, 10 jihadi fighters from Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), arriving by sea from Pakistan's port city of Karachi, landed on the coast of Mumbai and carried out coordinated terror attacks at multiple locations, killing 166 people and wounding over 300.It appears now that Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) may be planning a seaborne attack of its own against India. JeM is led by Masood Azhar, one of the three terrorists freed by India in exchange for the passengers of the Indian Airlines flight IC-814 hijacked en route Kandahar in 1999. For both LeT and JeM, India is the main target.

Mumbai attack was LET sponsored . ! Now JEM wants to do a "similar thing" !
In recent months, JeM's weekly newspaper Haftroza Al-Qalam has been publishing reports and analyses about the importance of jihad on oceans. The first indication that JeM may be thinking of seaborne missions emerged this year when Haftroza Al-Qalam published in its issue dated 6 to 12 April a short report stressing the theological importance of jihad on oceans. The report quoted Prophet Muhammad as saying: "Some people from my ummah (global Islamic community) rode on the oceans as a king sits on a throne".
Subsequently, the JeM chief wrote a column on this subject. In a column in Haftroza Al-Qalam in the 29 June to 5 July edition, Azhar said, "Allah has offered a special blessing for 'oceanic jihad' — jihad on water, jihad on sea, jihad riding on the chest of water. This jihad is 10 times more important than the jihad on land", as per a translation of his columns available from the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of the Middle East Media Research Institute in Washington, DC.

So, the Paki Navy should get in touch with JEM , or the Jaish should contact Pakistan Navy .
Azhar also stressed that Umar ibn Khattab, the second caliph of Islam who ruled from 634 to 644 CE, had issued a binding order to all his governors to ensure that "every Muslim will teach their children swimming, archery and horseback riding". A month before this column, a statement of Azhar was shared on Telegram in which he said, "Today the mujahideen are in Kashmir, Lucknow, Delhi and Mumbai too."
Pakistani Taliban commander Adnan Rasheed, a former employee of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF), revealed in a 2013 interview that JeM is a sub-unit of the ISI, stating that a unit called "Idarat-ul-Pakistan" was formed inside the Pakistani military to train jihadis in the army, navy and air force. Rasheed, who trained under JeM while serving in PAF, said he was told by his boss: "There is no difference between us and JeM. We are soldiers in uniform and they are soldiers without uniform."

Imran's "Secret Lover" Quashes "Fake News" :mrgreen:

Transgender alleged to have relations with Imran Khan opens up
August 31, 2018

ISLAMABAD – The transgender model who was alleged to have sexual relations with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman, Imran Khan has finally quashed such allegations.In a message released recently, Ramal Ali, whose name was quoted in the memoir of Imran Khan’s former wife, Reham Khan, has expressed that she was saddened at such accusations which were far from reality.‘Keep me out of your political debate as the allegations have hurt me and my family,’ said Ramal.
The transgender continued that one needs to cross-check such FAKE news before making it public, saying she was unaware of the publication of such scandal involving the Prime Minister-in-waiting, Imran Khan, in any book.

She should employ a "good" lawyer and sue Reham !
Ali pleaded that she toiled hard for achieving success in the media industry and to earn respect which ‘I need to keep intact’. Ramal Ali was quoted through a journalist in the sensational book released by Reham Khan.
Explaining the hidden facts in the book, which are still unsubstantiated, the ex-wife of Khan wrote, “… a rather excited female journalist would one day try very hard to reach me. I was busy in a meeting at the time but eventually managed to squeeze a few minutes out for the urgent information that she had to share. This rather journalist told me that the film actress Resham had just called her and told her how the new transgender dancer Rimal provided services to the great Khan. My lack of surprise shocked the journalist relaying the story”.

If this was an "isolated" revelation one could give the benefit of the doubt to Imran. There are just too many such "whisperings" around the private life of The Kaptaan . And yet, he was able to obtain the Certificate Of Sadiq and Ameen , which allowed him to become PM of Pakiland :mrgreen:

The "Good Haqqani" Says That Pakistan Has Not Lived Up To Its Promise To Deal With Terrorism

Imran Khan’s govt in Pakistan prefers denying terrorism than learning lessons from 9/11
The Print
Hussain Haqqani
Sept 3, 2018

It has been seventeen years since 9/11 and Pakistan’s expressed willingness to join the US-led war against terrorism. The dichotomies of Pakistan’s stance on terrorism have only become more exposed during this period instead of diminishing.And now, once again, Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government have made it clear that engagement with the rest of the world will be based on posturing for domestic political advantage rather than addressing complex policy issues.

Imran has pleaded for "some time" ( 90 days ) to be given to him to fix Pakistan problems. Hussain Haqqani should oblige and give him at least 90 days before accusing the Kaptaan of "posturing" :mrgreen:
Khan’s selection as Prime Minister through a controversial election process is the result of a belief among a section of Pakistanis, including the country’s establishment, that Pakistan’s global isolation is solely the result of the corruption or incompetence of its politicians.In reality, however, there are substantive differences that divide Pakistan and other countries. India, the European Union, and the US, for example, believe that Pakistan has not lived up to its promises in dealing with terrorism.
Many Pakistanis believe there is a " joint conspiracy " between US and India to "weaken" Pakistan !
Thousands of civilian lives have been lost at the hands of terrorists, and many Pakistani soldiers have bravely fought the terrorists operating Pakistan. But that does not change the fact that the world sees Pakistan as a safe haven for Jihadis attacking India and the Taliban which is causing rampage in Afghanistan.
Hussain Haqqani is "toeing" India's line !
Pakistan’s military efforts against the Pakistani Taliban was for many years praised by the US in the hope that it will subsequently be extended to the Afghan Taliban. But after fighting the Pakistani Taliban, and describing them as irreconcilable, Pakistan has yet to fire a single shot at the Afghan Taliban.
And remember that Mullah Omer death in Pakistan was kept secret so as not to weaken the Taliban Movement !
Khan and Pakistan’s establishment both now argue that talks with the Taliban is the only way forward in Afghanistan. If that is the case, Americans have started asking why Pakistan has chosen to fight Pakistani Taliban instead of engaging in talks with them?
According to Paki mythology, TTP is a creation of RAA and Afghanistan !
Either the Taliban’s ideology is amenable to reconciliation, in which case both the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban must be considered reconcilable enemies, or their core beliefs make them a difficult negotiating partner, which definition should then apply to the Taliban from both countries.
According to Paki mythology, one is Good Taliban ( Afghan) and one is the Bad Taliban ( Pakistan )
Instead of acknowledging concerns of other countries about Pakistani tolerance for terrorism and extremism, Khan’s government wants to tell Pakistanis that the rest of the world will accept Pakistan as it is just because the ‘great Khan’ is now in charge.The world, of course, does not work that way. Three different governments –the US, India, and the Netherlands – have gently pushed back on the new Pakistani government’s attempts to build Khan’s image at home by misrepresenting their positions.
It is well to remember that Imran Khan just happens to agree with Deep State's policy on US, India and Afghanistan ( remember the moniker of Taliban Khan ) :mrgreen:
India was the first to refute foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s claim that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had written a letter to Imran Khan inviting him for talks. India denied the Pakistani minister’s claim, pointing out that while Modi congratulated Khan on assuming office, India would engage to make South Asia “free of terror and violence, and to focus on development”. In other words, there would be no return to ‘business as usual’ without some action from Pakistan against terrorists responsible for violence on Indian territory.
There is a concerted effort in Pakistan to bring Haqqani back "home", by hook or by crook. to face "justice ", before he further damages the " good name of Pakistan, with statements like these :mrgreen:
Within a few days of the rebuke from India, Khan’s hyper-nationalist populism resulted in a spat with the US.The US had specifically avoided congratulating Khan on his supposed election victory, having noted the lack of fairness of the election process during and after the elections. “We recognise and welcome the newly elected Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on taking the oath of office” was markedly different from statements issued after Pakistan’s elections in 2008 and 2013.
This time around, the US State Department informed the media after a phone conversation between Khan and Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo that Pompeo had “raised the importance of Pakistan taking decisive action against all terrorists operating in Pakistan and its vital role in promoting the Afghan peace process”.Instead of recognising the lack of effusiveness, Qureshi decided to tell Pakistanis that the State Department’s account of the conversation was “not representative of the facts”. The Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman had already tweeted about the “factually incorrect statement issued by the US State Department” regarding the discussion during the phone call.
According to the Pakistan Foreign Office, there had been “no mention at all in the conversation about terrorists operating in Pakistan”. The State Department stood by its statement and tried to give the Pakistani side an opportunity to back down, saying it had been a “good call”.Pompeo has scheduled a short stopover in Islamabad on 5 September on his way to India for a longer visit and the US wanted to focus on the prospect of engagement rather than get lost amid the type of noise that has undermined US-Pakistan relations in the past. But Qureshi doubled down on his verbosity about “their press release mentioning terrorists operating in Pakistan” being “contrary to the facts”.The State Department quietly shared the transcript of the Khan-Pompeo conversation with the Pakistani Foreign Office, which according to a Pakistani report “embarrassed the government” over challenging the American account of the conversation. One Pakistani official was reported as saying, “Now, we don’t want to create more misunderstandings as we already have trust issues with the US” and the government asked the Pakistani media to ‘bury’ the issue it had created.
If Paki media reports are to be believed, FM Qureshi had gone "home" to Multan on the day of the ill fated phone call, instead of staying back in Isloo to "help with the call " :mrgreen:
The latest failed effort of the new government in trying to score points by playing to religious-nationalist sentiment at home relates to an otherwise obscure contest in the Netherlands of caricatures of Prophet Muhammad. The contest had been announced by opposition member of Parliament, Geert Wilders, who is known for his extreme positions against Islam and Muslims.
Things took a serious turn when a Pakistani young man, who had posted a video announcing his intention to kill Wilders, was arrested at a train station in the Netherlands upon arrival from Paris. Wilders cancelled the competition to avoid violence and bloodshed. Khan’s government celebrated its ‘diplomatic victory’ in having the caricatures competition cancelled even though the Dutch government had nothing to do either with organising or cancelling the contest. As is often the case with narcissist celebrities, Khan lacks the humility to understand the limits of his celebrity status in international relations. His followers have an exaggerated view of Pakistan’s international influence and power.

IMO, The Khan should be allowed the honeymoon period of 90 days . After that period, it will be time to prepare the report card on NAYA PAKISTAN !

Same article, Business Standard as the source:

The US on Saturday slapped sanctions on two Pakistani companies by placing them on the export entities list for activities related to nuclear and missile trade.

The two companies - Technology Links Pvt Ltd and Techcare Services FZ have been placed under the Entity List by the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

In a federal notification, the US Department of Commerce said that the entities added to the EAR list have been determined by the US government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the US.

The move comes days ahead of the visit of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pakistan.

The EAR determined that Technology Links Pvt. Ltd., located in Pakistan, be added to the Entity List based on the company's involvement in the supply of items subject to the EAR to nuclear and missile-related Entity List parties in Pakistan without the required license, the federal notification said.

In addition, the EAR determined that Techcare Services FZ LLC, located in the UAE, and UEC (Pvt) Ltd, located in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, made multiple attempts to acquire US-origin commodities ultimately destined for Pakistan's unsafeguarded nuclear programme and have provided false and misleading information during an end-use check, the federal notification said.

Issues that were discussed with Waist Bajwa and I'm the Dimmy in their eight hour meeting. Apparently all is hunky dory.

Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa are on the same page
The kind of optics given during the eight-hour briefing to the prime minister the other day was never experienced before.
Unlike the past, this meeting was chaired exclusively by the prime minister
the food served at the meeting also reflected austerity
the prime minister endorsed the army chief that the 'right to carry the gun' should be with the state and not with any banned outfit or private force
the army chief assured full support to the government in the fight against terrorism and extremism, now to be fought and the National Action Plan (NAP) being implemented in the urban areas
Things will now move forward with the civilian ownership
A stable Afghanistan is in Pakistan’s interests, as the nation has already suffered a lot
The meeting, he said, also touched upon the US plan to give a role to India in Afghanistan, whereas Pakistan’s stance was quite clear that India had no role to play in Afghanistan, and Islamabad wanted good relations with all the regional countries.
Fawad said the reason of differences with the US was its plan to give a role to India in Afghanistan while Islamabad and Washington were in agreement that the US should leave a stable Afghanistan.
To a question about the friendship with India, the minister maintained that peace was imperative to eliminate poverty both in Pakistan and India and noted that there were two kinds of thinking in India as well; one was extremist, wanting to make Pakistan weak, while other wished to peacefully co-exist with Pakistan.
Narendra Modi had got votes for his anti-Pakistan stance for India’s internal politics was quite complicated.
“Was it electricity or biryani, as if they had generated electricity and then took away with them putting it in a shopping bag. New power plants were installed with loans from China under fake companies for corruption and costly electricity was being generated,” he maintained.

This Paki Analist Says That The Khan Is More Concerned About Managing The Image Of Pakiland, Rather Than Dealing With Substantive Issues Facing The Accursed Country !

The season of follies
The News International
Zaigham Khan
Sept 3, 2018

Imran Khan built his long and emotionally charged political campaign around some powerful images. These images invoked nostalgia for long-lost glory and the burning desire to surpass our present circumstances. There was the image of the rightful caliph living like a hermit ( The so-called Golden Age Of Malsi !) and the image of a European head of government pedalling his way to work on a lonely bicycle. Juxtaposed together, the two images, belonging to two historically and geographically distant civilisations, conveyed the central narrative of Imran Khan’s political campaign.
In the PTI’s narrative, the two images carry the same moral essence and explain the reason of the greatness of past Muslim empires and the contemporary Western world – a simple incorruptible leader can put a country at the pinnacle of nations. This is as naïve as historiography can get, but this also is as powerful as political messaging can be. No wonder he trumped top religious leaders and snatched their home constituencies from them.
The images nurtured over hundreds of political rallies and millions of tweets have collided with reality rather violently during the PTI’s first fortnight in office, giving birth to a million jokes and memes. His followers must take a huge leap to cover the crater that lies between the idealism of a romantic relationship and the harsh realities of a marriage. It will be far harder to convince those who consider it a forced marriage to begin with. ( IMO, the pairing of the Peerni With Imran, is a political union, nothing to do with "romance" !) The information minister remains adamant that the PM’s $12 million helicopter costs merely Rs55 per kilometres to fly and therefore is more economical than a road journey.
The PTI, during its first fortnight in office, has embroiled us in useless and needless debates that are consuming our energies without any purpose. The Pakistani government is not a terribly expensive government but it is a horribly inefficient government. By putting the executive on the back of a camel, Imran Khan risks making it even more inefficient.
If we put together the cost of all the cars of the PM’s Office and his helicopter together, the sum is far less than one day’s of loss made by the state-owned enterprises (SOEs). Pakistan will not be harmed if the prime minister keeps all his cars and rides his helicopters as much as he likes. It will certainly be crippled economically if we fail to do something about the SOEs fast. Yet, the PM appears engrossed in those cursed cars, hardly ever discussing the SOEs or other urgent issues. It is the sale of these cars that will prove that he is as good as a caliph in Baghdad or a PM in a Nordic country.
In Pakistan, the optics matter . And in this case, the optics of "auctioning" the cars helps Imran and further demonizes Ganja Sharif !
While the helicopters and cars relate to optics, the scandal arising from Pakpattan is substantial and relates to governance. This scandal is serious because it involves the PM’s family members, and their friends and relatives.
No modern state can be run with such blatant interference in the affairs of the public administration. The chief justice has rightly taken notice of the incident. Imran Khan consistently and rightfully railed against such interference as an opposition leader. Going by his own standards, this is the type of scandal that can make a European leader resign.
But HE is NOT going to resign !
Unfortunately, the PTI government has lost the opportunity to handle the incident through executive means as it has already landed in the Supreme Court. Arising so early in the government, this scandal may haunt the prime minister for a long time to come.
Such early goof-ups and blunders may shrink the PTI’s capacity to undertake the promised reforms. For an elected government, the agenda of reforms is a race against time. All reforms create winners and losers. Losers can inflict a huge electoral cost on a ruling party if reforms are undertaken close to an election. In Pakistan, where the opposition can start a movement early in the life of a government or relations with the state institutions can deteriorate any time, this window of opportunity may be even smaller.
A similar opportunity was not available to the PML-N government as Imran Khan started his agitation barely a year after the party took power. The PML-N government could not even privatise any loss-making SOE as the employees of these enterprises and the political parties ganged up against the initiative. The only significant legislation undertaken during this period was Election Act 2017.
Let us see if Imran and his Finance Person can make tough decisions . The IMF will insist on this . !
The PTI has promised a large-scale agenda of reforms. Some elements of these reforms require constitutional amendments, while others need federal and provincial legislation. Many of the reforms carry political cost as they will anger entrenched interests. For example, economic reforms will require forcing consumers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh to pay their electricity bills and traders in Punjab and Karachi to pay their taxes. No government has been able to achieve these miracles so far.
Again , IMF danda my require this !
It appears that the PTI has taken the reins of the government unprepared for reforms. It has nothing more than rudimentary ideas outlined in its manifesto and agenda for the first 100 days in government. The process of consensus-building with other political forces can start only after the PTI has done its homework and prepared a roadmap. Many of these reforms will have to be sold politically to the people and to those who may thwart them.The level of unpreparedness is clear from a news report in this paper last week that gave us the good tiding that the PTI is going to follow “the transparent governance model of Sweden, which has the lowest levels of national debt, low and stable inflation and a relatively healthy banking system among the European Union states.”
Sweden being a welfare state has for starters , a relatively high level of taxation . These monies are then used to find the social benefits . Are Paki awaam ready to pay income taxes . Are zamindars willing to pay tax on agriculture ?
We can better focus on countries that are very similar to our own and have stolen the march over us over the last decades. Everyone knows what was done and how it was done. Our own Siamese twin, Bangladesh, can be a better model to follow. Its economy is growing at 7 percent of GDP while we may slide to 5 percent this year; it exports $40 billions of goods and services while we are stuck at $23 billion low grade exports. Its human development can be measured through just one indicator – population growth rate. Bangladesh’s population growth rate is merely 1.1 percent while ours is 2.4 percent. Growth rate is an important measure because it is directly related to health, education and women’s empowerment indicators.
Dushman India is of course not mentionable as an example !
As any literary critic will tell us, no serious play should start with comic relief. There’s something wrong with the plot. Only two paragraphs have been written. Shakespeare has the opportunity to make corrections to the prologue.

September 3 and do you know what it is? Fool time!! Combine "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" and "In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility (by the all time paki favorite - adolf hitler)" and you get the new paki beliefs trotted out this time of the year.

MM Alam's World record stays unbeaten even after 53 years

Legendary war hero MM Alam’s record of shooting down five Indian war planes in less than a minute remains unbeaten.
MM Alam was the first ever fighter pilot for PAF (matches the gravestone claim of "First ___ Scientist")
He shot down as he sets an unbeaten world record by downing five Indian aircraft in thirty seconds. :rotfl:


Despite the fact many have proven his claim to be a figment of his over active and bizarre imagination, and the paki yearning for some thing positive to cling on to, pakis continue to lap this $hit up even till today. This faker was given a desk job in the '71 war and died a jamaati.

Here's our own refutation to the bizarre claim. Hey paklurks, read the entire article.

Anupmisra-ji:
Eight hours ( even with allowance for biryani and chai biscoot break ) is a long long time . Of course, family pleasantries must have been exchanged before getting down to serious business . Wonder Bajwa Pajwa brought The Kaptaan upto date on "State secrets" . And what to say to Pompeo in the important meeting coming up next week . No wonder the Information Minister For Pakistan For Imran Khan stated that both COAS and PM were on same page. Do not want a situation where Imran says one thing to Pompeo, and Bajwa says something else. Wonder, if The Kaptaan took his "performance enhancing" pills in the meet !

This "Liberated" Paki Ayesha Sees Nothing Wrong In Bushra Donning The Burqa !

The fault in our minds: Bushra Maneka’s attire is her business and choice, and hers alone

She has every right to wear what she wants but as the wife of Pakistan’s leader, she represents all Pakistani women. When the international community sees Pakistan as a regressive state that oppresses women, this is not the greatest representation of Pakistani women.

But, the Peerni is wearing make-up, which is strictly forbidden in Islam. She cannot be a selective Muslim, can she?
