NEW DELHI: China's state-run television CGTN in a significant move has portrayed Pakistan Occupied Kashmir as part of original map of Jammu and Kashmir which has been a long standing demand by India for decades.

The picture of the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir by China's state run television was displayed while reporting the terror attack on Chinese consulate last Friday.


They probably were lazy and just uploaded a googled image.

Expect a correction and apology to TSP to follow soon.

Vips wrote:India dismisses Pak ‘invite’ to PM Modi for Saarc meet as ploy.

India dismissed as “posturing” a Pakistan foreign office announcement on Tuesday that it would “invite” PM Narendra Modi to a Saarc summit in Islamabad.

Coming on the heels of the two countries joining forces to build the Kartarpur corridor, a long-standing Indian demand, the Pakistani announcement would have raised the possibility of resumption of the Saarc process, which has been stalled since 2016, had it not been for a crucial detail — Pakistan cannot unilaterally “invite” for Saarc.

A Saarc summit is announced only after it has been decided upon by all members. :D

It is only after the date has been decided by member states that formal invitations are sent out. :lol:

India is not a special invitee that Pakistan has the discretion to invite us. India is integral to the Saarc process, a government official.“The date for a Saarc summit is finalised with the consent of all members. And that has not happened,” the official added. :rotfl:

Pakistan, sources said, probably wanted to garner some PR points in the presence of a large Indian media contingent which has travelled for the Kartarpur corridor’s inauguration to paint India as the obstinate one holding up regional cooperation.

However, sources in Delhi said Bangladesh, which is going to the polls, or Sri Lanka, which is embroiled in a political crisis, are hardly likely to agree to a Saarc summit just now. Another member country Afghanistan, was equally unlikely to agree to one, sources added.

Pakistani PM Imran Khan is expected to interact with Indian journalists where he is likely to raise this issue as one awaiting resolution (Watch out for NDTV and The Hindu to point this out prominently)


ANI Tweet on our EAM's reaction to the so called invitation of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan regards SAARC summit :

EAM Sushma Swaraj: We are not responding to it( invitation by Pakistan for SAARC summit) positively because as I said unless and until Pakistan stops terror activities in India, there will be no dialogue, so we will not participate in SAARC

Saarc summit still in limbo amid India’s obduracy

ISLAMABAD: The South Asian Associa­tion for Regional Cooperation’s (Saarc) summit remains in limbo for the third year running due to India’s refusal to attend a meeting in Pakistan.

Islamabad was to host the 19th summit of the regional bloc in November 2016, but India on that occasion forced its cancellation by first pulling out of the meeting on the pretext of “increasing cross-border terrorist attacks in the region and growing interference in internal affairs of member states by one country”, because of which it claimed the environment was “not conducive to the successful holding of the 19th Saarc summit in Islamabad”.

It was later joined by its regional allies Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Bhutan, all of whom also pulled out citing concerns about terrorism and external interference in an implied criticism of Pakistan.

Pakistan has not been able to convene the event for the third year now because of a virtual Indian veto. Participation of all member states is mandatory for the convening of a Saarc summit.

The new government in Islamabad, while attempting to capitalise on the goodwill generated from initial contacts between the new government and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, made a fresh attempt at convening the summit, but the attempt was again stonewalled by India.

Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal, while speaking at a seminar on Tuesday, spoke about India’s obstinacy on the issue of the Saarc summit in Islamabad. Referring to a letter written by Prime Minister Imran Khan to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi after assuming office, the spokesman said, the invitation for attending the summit in Islamabad was renewed.

“The letter noted that Saarc summit may now be held and welcomed Mr Modi to visit Islamabad so that a dialogue can be started and we can take it forward,” he said.

Saarc summits, as per the charter of the body, are to be held once a year or more frequently as required by the situation. The summits are held on a rotational basis inn alphabetical order of the names of member states. However, summits could be held only on 18 occasions in Saarc’s 33 years of existence.[/b]

Although there have been different reasons for the delays and rescheduling, including bilateral disputes and internal problems of member states, India has been the most common cause in these postponements, if not all. At least on two occasions the hold-ups were because of Pakistan-India disputes.

India refused to attend the 11th summit on the pretext of a coup in Pakistan and the 12th summit because of the prime minister’s schedule. India on those occasions used the participation card to pressure the hosts.

Longest delay

The longest delay was on the occasion of the 11th summit hosted by Kathmandu. On that occasion the summit scheduled for November 1999 was held in January 2002 after delay of nearly two years and two months. On five occasions in the past the venue had to be changed for hosting of the conference — 3rd, 4th, 5th, 15th and 16th summits.

This time India is insisting that it would not agree to a meeting in Islamabad as long as it does not see any visible progress on its concerns about terrorism.

Pakistan has time and again denied the allegations and has on several occasions offered dialogue to address the outstanding issues.

Dr Faisal, while again recalling PM Khan’s letter, said: “We are ready to discuss and resolve all issues, including Jammu and Kashmir, Siachen, Sir Creek, people-to-people contacts, religious tourism. We are ready to discuss terrorism.”

PM Khan is performing the groundbreaking of Kartarpur corridor on Wednesday, which is being dubbed as ‘corridor of peace’.

An Indian delegation, including some ministers, will attend the ceremony in Kartarpur.

Dr Faisal said that the progress towards opening of the Kartarpur corridor was a result of Pakistan’s relentless perseverance in its efforts for normalising ties with India despite the latter’s inflexibility.

He said Pakistan was very clear in its policy of engaging with India, whereas New Delhi was suffering from confusion as shown by the cancelled foreign ministers meeting in September on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

The spokesman hoped that the corridor would open other avenues of cooperation between the two countries.

I would appreciate anyone knowledgeable about Sikhism to educate me if Guru Nanak ever used Allah for God. (I have heard frequent references of 'Parmatma', but never Allah or Khuda in the kirtans sung in the Gurdwara).



Guru Nanak never used it but 5th Guru Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji (was attained martyrdom at Lahore) compiled Sri Guru Granth Sahib and include Bani of Bhagat Kabir especially this verse

Awwal Allah Noor Upaya, Kudrat ke sab bande, Aik noor te sab jag upjya kaun bhale kaun mande

First Allah created light, all humans belong to nature, When everyone came out of the same light then who is good and who is bad.

SAARC summits & dates can only be held on consensus, among all the members. There is nothing like "inviting India" or any other member of SAARC.

Usual Pak nonsense.

The peace drama is to divert the attention on 10 yrs of 26/11. I am willing to bet, Pak would have wanted this happen probably of 25 or 27, so that people get distracted from 26/11.

India rules out talks revival, SAARC participation - News Desk

India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said India would not take part in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit in Pakistan unless the neighbouring country “stops sponsoring terror activities”.

“We are not responding to it (the invitation by Pakistan for the summit) positively because as I said unless and until Pakistan stops terror activities in India, there will be no dialogue, so we will not participate in SAARC,” Indian media quoted her as saying while speaking at a news conference in Hyderabad.

“The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, the dialogue can start but the dialogue is not connected with only Kartarpur corridor,” Swaraj said and added, “We will not participate in Saarc [summit either].”

Kartarpur border corridor: Pakistan and India break the ice

Swaraj, who declined Islamabad’s invite to witness the ground-breaking ceremony for the corridor and deputed two ministers to represent India at the event, said the corridor had been a long awaited.

“For many years the Indian government has been asking for this (Kartarpur) corridor, only now Pakistan responded positively. It doesn’t mean the bilateral dialogue will start because of this, terror and talks can’t go together,” she said.

On the eve of the foundation stone laying ceremony, the Foreign Office in Islamabad said that the Pakistan had invited Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the Saarc summit.

However, the Indian External Affairs Ministry on Wednesday quashed the euphoria triggered by the move, putting a dampener on hopes that it might lead to the resumption of peace talks between the two neighbours.

India has frustrated every Pakistani move for regional peace and stymied regional cooperation with its obduracy. New Delhi had pulled out of the 19th Saarc summit scheduled to be held in Islamabad in December 2016. Taking cue, its regional allies Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Bhutan also withdrew.

India accuses Pakistan of sponsoring terrorism — an allegation that New Delhi doesn’t have anything to substantiate. Islamabad, on the other hand, accuses Indian spy agency of bankrolling and sheltering Baloch terrorists. Indian spy, Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested in Balochistan has confessed to India’s involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan.

Dont want to go OT here but you are assuming Sidhu is pure-hearted and does not know what he is doing. He is anything but that. He is power hungry and jumped from BJP to Italian Congress while holding discussions with AAP to see if they would make him the chief Minister if it were to come to power. He would do anything for his four seconds under the Sun. Check and see the comments he made when he was prosecuted for causing a death by rash driving. The way he dismissed this as a small incident (this when he was not even a politician) speaks volumes for the kind of person he is.Also check the comments/actions he and his wife made following the Dusshera railway accident/incident in Punjab.

And, here's the reason why one can't trust the pakis. There's always an ulterior motive.

Groundbreaking of Kartarpur Corridor: Can’t we form a Franco-German like union?

If France and Germany can move ahead while making a union, why can’t we; the Pakistan Army, national institutions and political parties are on the same page, we want to move ahead, we want a civilised relationship, only a leadership with determination is needed on both sides of the borders to solve the issues,” said the prime minister while addressing the ground-breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, situated in Shakargarh, just a few miles from the Indo-Pak border in Narowal. :roll:
the prime minister said Kashmir was the only issue between India and Pakistan that could be resolved if the leadership of both sides showed determination
He said the perception that the Pakistan Army wasn’t willing to solve the Kashmir issue wasn’t right as the country’s armed forces, its institutions and politicians were on the same page over this issue and wanted a solution.
we have to live like good neighbours
He said millions of people lost lives in wars between France and Germany but today they had opened borders, they could not even think of going for a war now while keeping in view their connections of business and investment.
Just look at the potential between the two sides, how much they can benefit if trade starts and the relationship is improved,” he said, citing the example of China


So that's it. Invest money in pakhanistan's SeePack and there won't be a war.

The attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi:
The Chinese do not believe that its BLA.
it was a false flag ops, because from, what we know, the snipers were already in place in the clifton area, before the attack took place.
Two amongst the attackers, were in the missing person list in Balochistan.

This was a Pak army pay back, for putting Imran Khan niazi on the mat...amd not divulging, shehabaz sharifs corruption, in Chinese deals.

The KartarPur corridor:
The Khalistani fellows, did not allow the Indian diplomats to enter Nanakhana saheb, last week. The khalistanis were heard talking about the possibility of holding a referendum, in Punjab, in 2020, over the Khalistan issue. we hear the same strain from Khalistanis based out in Canada also.

Rather than beign defensive, we must state Khalistan should cover the Holy Sikh cities of Lahore, Toba Tek Singh and Peshawar, anyone eating meat other than Jatka meat should immediately leave these Sikh areas and the land in between and give them their rightful share of 33% of Pakistani Punjab.

Kartarpur is a tactical brilliance by Pakistan Army.

We don't want to get involved in saazish here in this thread. But, look at the sequence of events.

  • Imran Khan becomes PM of Pakistan supported by the PA
  • Very obviously, PA manipulated the polls to ensure that Imran became the PM but not with even a simple majority; thus, IK is under the thumb of the PA. This is the usual ploy whether it was Yahya, Zia, or Musharraf
  • IK invited his 'friends' from India and, IMO, 'carefully' included NSS because he knew that the others would turn down the invite. May be there was some out-of-channel signalling.
  • Bajwa came looking specifically for Sidhu at the oath-taking ceremony and the two spoke for a few minutes and Sidhu hugged him (didn't appear to me that Bajwa was too pleased to do so even though Sidhu and his apologists claim that the jhappi was mutual)
  • Two things didn't occur to Sidhu: that Bajwa had no business to talk about Kartarpur Sahib Gurduwara (but we can let it pass because, like everyone else, Sidhu can be given the benefit of doubt that being aware that PA determines India-policy, Bajwa's offer wasn't surprising); Sidhu openly announced, and that too on Pakistani media from Pakistani soil, what Bajwa told him without taking it first to the MEA, the normal course of action for any Indian especially when it involved Pakistan
  • It is not known whether Sidhu had cross-checked & confirmed Bajwa's offer with 'his friend' Imran Khan sahib. IMO, he didn't because he kept on referring to Bajwa's offer during those initial days of euphoria. He might have changed tune later
  • IMO, this was done by Sidhu to put pressure on GoI because once this is made public, GoI would have to fall in line respecting religious sentiments, especially elections being so close. He wanted to put Goi in a damned if you do & damned if you don’t situation.
  • Sidhu might have reacted in the way he did with his (and his current party's) political fortunes in mind and the desire for access to a holy Sikh shrine in Pakistan, but, there is every possibility that he was 'used' by the PA because the demand has now come for SAARC. Timing is important. The Kartarpur initiative has come from the PA. There are only two reasons for this: to put pressure on India and to enable another route for saboteurs & terrorists to get into the Indian Punjab

I dont think Khatrapur corridor which will be regulated is can be used by PA to sneak in Terrorists, in 1980's Indian economy was in deep shi* and Indiara Gandhi autocratic rule meant lots of discontent, today ever body in India and Punjab knows what is going on.

Pakis are trying their old tricks, apart from high pitched battle cries in Canada and England( with support of their Governments), yes a few terror attacks like those killing 7 RSS people in 2017. There will be nothing like the 1980's, the question is are we preparing for the eventual terror attack coming from Pakistan- there is every sign of it coming and have we secured the Golden temple with proper security? Something of this sort will be attempted.

U.S. suspended a total of $3 billion in security assistance to Pakistan this year: sources - PTI

So, considerable US funding has been flowing to Pakistan even when their relatiosn were at the lowest and the US kept on saying that fund spigot has been turned off.

The U.S. has suspended $3 billion in security assistance to Pakistan this year after it failed to rein in terrorist groups, a figure which is much higher than the $1.3 billion quoted by the Trump administration earlier, according to sources.

The $3 billion amount was calculated in the latest compilation of all figures coming from various funding streams from different fiscal years, PTI has learnt.

Not been made public yet, the suspended figure of $3 billion is much higher than the $1.3 billion quoted by President Donald Trump this month and $ 1.66 billion reported by the Pentagon last week.

The compilation of the figures coming from various wings of the U.S. Government is understood to have been done after the recent Twitter spat between President Trump and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

That could explain in part why Bakis are squealing. This undeclared jaziya was keeping the gravy train afloat. Interesting it is the same amount as Saudis have pledged to "deposit" to avert the "balance of payments crisis". So is the US "assistance" being re-routed via the Saudis?

All the F16 & Vipers have been held off, not because of "terror" issue, but due to money.

Pak were using US money to buy these kit.

The Pak Military is badly hit by the US held back of funds and would pile up the pressure on IM the Dim to make the difference and even 'do more' to increase the defence budget next year. To get the loans Pakis are going to lie to IMF and commit to tax/economic goals it will surely have no intention to achieve/fulfill.

While I agree with your position that TSPA will not be able to easily infiltrate terrorists and spies via this corridor, but the Kartarpur corridor, while regulated, will enable Indian Sikhs who support khalistan from freely mixing with pak-based and londonistan-based khalistanis at the Gurudwara.

The returning Indian Sikhs will be monitored but they can not be stopped from reentering India. What would happen when the same groups are surreptitiously allowed to leave Kartarpur Gurudwara (from the back door) and meet paki-terror groups? Lots of "what ifs".

That's why I proposed a simple land swap. But, as someone pointed out, the land swap will not be in toiletistan's interest.

NSS is a naive fool for putting himself in this position. He is after his 15 minutes of fame, and he has plenty of it now. He should have known who Gopal S. Chawla is. NSS is also on record saying that pakhanistan is his second home.

That may have been the intent from the very start. India closes the Kartarpur Corridor leading to discontent in Indian Punjab.

Has the dimwit just admitted that pakhanistan is/was the base for terror groups?

Imran Khan: Not in Pak’s interest to allow use of its territory for terror acts

"It is not in our interest (anymore) to allow the use of Pakistan's territory for terror outside. People in Pakistan want peace with India. The mindset of people here has changed," Imran Khan said.
Khan said the people now wanted peace with India.
Khan’s comments on terrorism come just a day after Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj made it clear that India would not attend the SAARC summit in Islamabad “until and unless” Pakistan stopped sponsoring terror.
On Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, Khan said, “There are UN sanctions against Hafiz Saeed. There is already a clampdown on the JuD chief.:shock:
I will be happy to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and talk to him


Has dimmy already forgotten what he has said about Modi (in recent and distant past)?

I do not know who is Gopal Chawla: Navjot Singh Sidhu - ToI

See, that's the problem with visiting Terroristan; you don't know whom you would be interacting with. When their Prime Minister himself is a closet jihadist, when their military supports jihadists, when it has some of the most high-profile jihadists banned under Resolution 1267, when it has been responsible for violence in Sidhu's Punjab in the 80s, when all recent terrorism in his Punjab is directly traced to Terroristan, going there, hugging people, talking to them and clicking with them are all fraught with extreme danger. For a worldly person like him, he should have known all these. He cannot take refuge under the I-didn't-know-who-he-was excuse.

OK, he didn't know that Khalistani terrorist. What about Bajwa and Imran Khan. He surely knew they are terrorists and terror supporters.

Not for nothing did Ms. Eenam Gambhir call that country as 'Terroristan' in the UN.

If people on BRf are going to believe that Pakistan would not be able to misuse the slightest opportunity that India presents to that country, the rest of the country is doomed.

Paki spin in full view here. HS&D is now maintained and intact.

And, now this.

PM Imran gives credit of 100 days' success to Bushra Bibi
:shock:

Prime Minister Imran Khan paid accolades to his wife Bushra Imran for keeping up with his tough schedule as he began his speech in a ceremony venerating PTI's 100 days in office here on Thursday.
PM Khan thanked Bushra Bibi for her support and upholding the domestic activities while he remained consumed with his duties to the state.
Furthermore, the premier expressed his gratitude to the first lady, adding that the credit of the 100 days’ success should go to Bushra Bibi.


This news will go down really well with the liberals and women's organizations in pakhanistan. Dimwit should also clarify that imran-bibi did not demand $ex (as she was busy with household "activities") which led him to 100% focus on screwing the nation.
