Terrorist State of Pakistan : Media Digest

Postby Rahul M » 31 Oct 2018 10:10

Off late the main Terroristan thread has been swamped by members posting every bit of relevant and irrelevant news from TSP. repeated requests have fallen on deaf ears. the thread as a result has lost all its coherence and it is near impossible for a reader to filter out the important from the mundane. This is a sad situation for what is one of our flagship threads and the mods agree that it can't continue.

Henceforth, post a news item in the main Terroristan thread only if it relates to the following topic(s) :
a) Pakistan's foreign relations (with India, China, US etc)
b) Major factors in Pak internal scenario e.g terrorism, army-civil relations, insurgency etc

As a rule of thumb, unless the news item mentions a factor that substantially affects India or that of pakistan as an entity, do NOT post in that thread.

Anything else, should be posted in this thread.


Posts in Terroristan thread that do not meet these criteria would be summarily deleted by mods. since that entails additional burden on mods, three such deletions would automatically earn the poster an official warning.
As for what constitutes relevant and what doesn't, SSridhar is the final arbitrer, being the leading contributor to that thread.
--------
TL;DR version, if you want to post a TSP related news item that is interesting but not particularly relevant to India, post here and not in the main Terroristan thread. Else, you might be warned.

Justice Khosa "Covers His Behind" In The Asia Bibi Case In Case He Becomes Another Wajib-ul - Cutlet :mrgreen:

Asia Bibi case: Justice Asif Saeed Khosa's additional note
The News International
Oct 31, 2018

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court Wednesday overturned the conviction of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother facing execution for blasphemy, in a landmark case which has incited deadly violence and reached as far as the Vatican.
Demonstrations broke out in major cities across the country following the verdict, with approximately a thousand club-wielding demonstrators blocking Islamabad’s main highway as several roads in the port city of Karachi were barricaded by protesters sparking chaotic traffic jams.
Justice Asif Saeed Khosa also penned down an additional note on the verdict, which is being reproduced here:...

The main gist being that the poor and uneducated Christian woman was falsely accused by two Muslim women of remarks against PBUH, which she never had made in the first place . Now that she is free, a huge uproar has generated in Pakiland . And the "learned judge" has put out a detailed justification for his judgement , in case HE himself is accused, in this heated atmosphere , of acting against Malsi and PBUH. Hope the Paki Authorities provide him with the highest level of security :mrgreen:
IMO, Asia Bibi herself will eventually be given asylum in a western/ Christian country like Canada, USA, UK , Italy etc !

With Ganja Gone, Qataris Now Seem To Be "Out Of Favour" In Pakiland :roll:

KP authorities seize 9 falcons owned by Qatari Prince at Peshawar airport
Oct 31, 2018

ESHAWAR – The wildlife department seized nine Falcons, allegedly owned by Qatari Prince, at Bacha Khan International Airport of the provincial capital on Wednesday.
The department described the transportation of such costly hunting birds as illegal under the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Wildlife Act, 2015.The Falcons were owned by a Qatari prince who was about to reach Pakistan soon and thus he had dispatched the birds before his arrival for the purpose of hunting, local media reported.
Ganja had a "soft corner" for the Qataris . They obliged him with a "shady affidavit" which in theory was supposed to help him in his "corruption charges" . He obliged them by providing the Royals with a thoroughbred horse, and also carte blanche falcon hunting ! Then the Saudia - Qatar tiff happened . Now , the Saudis are "dictating" to Imran. And THIS might be one of the collateral damage !
It was revealed that the approximate price of the falcons was about Rs20 million. The Falcons were shifted from Qatar to Peshawar through a resident of Kohat, who was arrested. However, the accused was released on payment of Rs300,000 as fine.
Qatari hunters apply and pay for government hunting permits and donate to local communities and wildlife conservation.
Do not demonize them completely :mrgreen:

India lodges strong protests with Pakistan, China over PoK bus service – PTI

NEW DELHI: India on Wednesday said it has lodged strong protests with China and Pakistan over a proposed bus service between the two countries through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

Ministry of external affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Wednesday the bus service will be a violation of India's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

According to reports, the new bus service will be launched between Lahore in Pakistan and Kashgar in China via Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on November 13.

Kumar said it has been India's consistent and well-known position that the "so-called China-Pakistan 'Boundary Agreement' of 1963 is illegal and invalid, and has never been recognised by the Government of India."

"Therefore, any such bus service through Pakistan Occupied Jammu & Kashmir will be a violation of India's sovereignty and territorial integrity," he added.

The MEA spokesperson was responding to media queries regarding the proposed bus service.

The $50-billion CPEC, launched in 2015, is a planned network of roads, railways and energy projects linking China's resource-rich Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region with Pakistan's strategic Gwadar Port on the Arabian Sea

Will Privatization Reduce Pakiland's Massive Budget Deficit . Probably Will Not Even Make A Dent :mrgreen:

Pakistan government decides to privatise two mega power plants
Nov 1, 2018

*ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Asad Umar chaired meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Privatization (CCOP) here Tuesday.*
It was noted that only one entity was privatized during the last five years, apart from divestment of shares in a few already privatized entities.
So, it seems that this is an academic exercise only . No one is "handling this hot potato item" where "jobs" and "drinking at the public trough" are at stake !
The committee gave the go-ahead to Privatization Division to undertake the process for privatization of newly established 1233 MW Balloki Power Plant and the 1230 MW Haveli Bahadur Power Plant.The CCOP also approved the proposal for privatization of the following entities: (i) SME Bank Ltd (ii) First Women Bank Ltd (iii) Jinnah Convention Centre, Islamabad (iv) Lakhra Coal Mines (now Lakhra Coal Development Company) (v) Services International Hotel, Lahore.
Are there going to be any takers ? Can these "losers" be dumped upon the "dumb Saudis" ? Can Immy Govt ensure that some cronies of Asad do not make "commissions" on these deals? Lots of questions !
The committee noted that the listing of a large number of entities on the privatization list for more than a decade had been detrimental to their operations as these were neither privatised nor any serious effort was undertaken to revitalize them.
After detailed deliberations, it was decided to delist Pakistan Steel Mills, PIA, Pakistan Railways, Utility Stores Corporation, NHA and CAA from the Privatization list.
These are some of the some of the "crown jewels" . Luckily the "Bum Factories" at Kahuta , Kamra and other "secret" places are not on the Privatization List :mrgreen:

Asia Bibi Being Bundled Out Of Pakiland For Her Own Safety :D

Aasia may fly abroad today
The News International
Nov 1, 2018

LAHORE: Aasia Bibi's husband Ashiq Masih had reached Pakistan along with his family from the United Kingdom. Credible sources has informed this correspondent that Ashiq Masih reached Islamabad on Saturday where he was provided complete security by the law enforcement agencies.
Ashiq came to Pakistan with a view to shift his wife abroad in case she is freed by the Supreme Court.
As predicted by many, this has come true. Now, that the innocent Christian woman is free, it is much better for her to spend the rest of her life out of Pakiland, where at least, this is not in physical danger !
Aasia Bibi is detained in Multan Jail from where she would be shifted to airport via helicopter. Jail authorities haven't yet received official order for release. It is expected that she would move abroad in next 24 hours (today).

Another Example Of "Ganja Sharif Demonization"

Nawaz used helicopters for 2,167 hours during tenure, PM Imran for 33
Pakistan Today
Nov 1, 2018

The National Assembly was informed that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif used the helicopters for 2,167 hours during his tenure, whereas current Prime Minister Imran Khan has only used them for 33 hours so far.
Not a fair comparison IMO. The Kaptaan has been in power for less than six months and already chalked up 33 hours . If , he is power for as long as Nawaz was, he will surely surpass Ganja's hours !
Earlier, in response to a question asked by PPP’s Nasiba Channa, the minister in charge of Cabinet Division in his written reply stated that 2xUH-I H helicopters gifted by the US in 1974 and 2xBell — 412helicopters, which were purchased in 1992, were unserviceable.
.
So, it was "US Beggary" at that time !!!

Khadim Rizvi Makes Good On His Threats. Holds Whole Of Pakistan "Hostage" Following Release Of Aasia Bibi :mrgreen:

Religious zealots run the streets again
Pakistan Today
Nov 1, 2018

LAHORE: The protests by Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) workers against the acquittal of Christian blasphemy convict Aasiya Bibi on Wednesday paralysed daily life in various cities of the country and led to massive traffic jams and serious inconvenience to the passengers. On October 13, TLP chief Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi had threatened to “paralyse the country within hours if the Supreme Court set Aasiya Bibi free”.
The federal government sent Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Noorul Haq Qadri along with Minister for National Food Security and Research Sahibzada Muhammad Mehboob Sultan to Lahore by a special helicopter to negotiate with Khadim Rizvi to end his protest.

The Religious Minister is tech savvy ! Life in many cities has been paralyzed. And this is the same man and the same party which was mainstreamed by the Deep State ! Karma biting back !

Slippery Zardari !

Authorities will have to prove I deposited money into fictitious bank accounts: Zardari
Dawn
Nov 1, 2018

PPP-Parliamentarians President Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday said the authorities will have to "prove that he went to open fictitious bank accounts in the name of some milkman or sweetmeat seller, only then can a case be registered against him", Geo News reported.Talking to Geo News, Zardari continued by saying: "Even then, I can defend the case: 'Yes I have deposited money in this account, it is my wish'."
When the show host, Hamid Mir, repeated the same for clarification and asked the former president, "What about the poor fellow who has no idea about any of this?", Zardari responded by saying: "Then it is his fault."Stunned by the response, when Mir inquired to be sure: "It is his fault?", Zardari replied with a quick: "It is the bank's fault."
Surprising that the Deep State has not been able to completely silent him !
As the conversation turned to the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) and the prime minister's recent speech where he had vowed "no corrupt person will get an NRO", Zardari quipped: "He [PM Imran Khan] has a habit of saying things." When Mir remarked in a questioning tone: "[Has he] gone too far and said too much?", Zardari responded by reiterating that the prime minister "is habitual of saying too much". "We had told him to behave like an executive and to desist from opposition politics and let us worry about the opposition," Zardari told Mir.

This "veteran fraudster" has earned his stripes in jail . It will be very hard to pin him . If seriously threatened, he will take the next plane out to Dubai :mrgreen:

Sami ul-Haq stabbed to death on his bed, son confirms

Jamiat Ulema Islam – Sami (JUI-S) emir Maulana Sami ul-Haq has on Friday been assassinated by unidentified murderers according to initial reports.After initial reports by TV reports that he was shot dead by unidentified men, Sami ul-Haq’s son Hamid ul-Haq while talking to ARY News confirmed that Sami ul-Haq was stabbed to death in his bed inside his house in Islamabad.Sami ul-Haq was one of the most senior clerics of the Deobandi school of thought and often took pride in calling himself the ‘father of Taliban’.He was considered close to the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) whose provincial government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provided him with grants worth Rs 570 million during the last five years.

There are a couple of talk shows which have mentioned that he was shot 12 times, while his guard and driver were injured. Other reports are that he was alone when he was stabbed. Something black in the lentils. ISI is now disposing off the soiled tissue.

These Kinds Of "Forced Marriages" Are Happening In Madame Jalebi's Own Back Yard In Rajanpur District !

Marry-off doctor daughters to illiterate men, panchayat orders parents
The Express Tribune
Nov 3, 2018

In a rather bizarre occurrence, a panchayat in Rajanpur district on Friday ordered parents in the vicinity to marry-off their ‘doctor daughters’ with illiterate men, warning violators they will lose over hundred acres of land.
The directives were issued in Rojhan, native city of the federal minister for human rights Shireen Mazari, where the consultative body ruled that violators will have to surrender 123 acres of land, Express News reported.
Thank God, the Minister's ( foreign educated ! ) daughter is safely ensconced in Geneva, Switzerland , from where she is "blasting" the fauj and Deep State with her poisonous tweets :mrgreen:
The decree was issued after Jagan Mazari, father of two MBB degree-holder girls, Reema and Reshma Mazari, refused to marry-off his daughters to illiterate men in the neighbourhood as part of watta satta* marriages.
Is the Minister "sleeping on her job" :roll:
agan had married-off his son with a girl in the village 10 years ago. Upon his refusal, the refusing father was barred from farming his own land and was held captive in his house.On the other hand, the police remained indifferent on the issue as usual with the deputy superintendent saying they didn’t receive any complaint in order to initiate action.Watta satta is a type of marriage involving the simultaneous marriage of a brother-sister pair from two families.

'We are not killers:' Migrants in caravan respond to Trump

DONAJI, Mexico (AP) — As President Donald Trump ramped up his anti-migrant rhetoric ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections, exhausted Central Americans walking across Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States said they were mostly perplexed and turned off by his threats, which they perceive as exaggerated.

The U.S. president has spent the final days of the campaign hammering the issue as he tries to energize Republican voters, and his favorite target has been the migrant caravan of almost 4,000 people that is still more than 800 miles away from the nearest U.S. border. Three smaller ones are following behind it.

Trump's recent statements include that he plans to sign an order that could lead to the detention of migrants crossing the southern border, and barring anyone caught crossing illegally from claiming asylum. Both propositions are legally dubious. Trump also said he had told the U.S. military mobilizing at the southwest border that if U.S. troops face rock-throwing migrants, they should react as though the rocks were "rifles."

"It is pure ignorance for him to think like that," said Marta Cuellos, a 40-year-old from Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital. "A rock is not the same as a rifle."

While some migrants have clashed with Mexican police at a bridge on the Guatemala border, most of those traveling with the caravans have been peaceful and say they are fleeing violence and poverty at home. Those traveling through the southern state of Oaxaca on Friday said they are not looking for trouble.

Cuellos said she owned a cantina back home in Honduras but left because she could no longer make rent and was being harassed by police. She persuaded her 35-year-old sister to join her on the trip, and said the only thing they want is work and a better life in the United States. It's her second attempt. She first crossed into the U.S. seven years ago but was deported last year.

Selvin Maldonado, a 25-year-old from Copan, Honduras, said he left his wife and baby daughter at home in search of a better living to support his children. He took his 5-year-old son, Dennys, with him.

"What Trump said is stupid," Maldonado said while walking to the town of Donaji. "I don't want to attack police, because my concern is my son."

The migrants also were also turned off by the U.S. president's characterization of the slow-moving caravan and the three smaller ones following as "invasion." Trump has proposed detaining migrants in massive tent cities at the border.

"We are not killers," said Stephany Lopez, a 21-year-old Salvadoran with the first caravan. "We just want to work for a few years, and after that he can deport us if he wants."

Lopez noted that the president's mother, who was born in Scotland, was an immigrant.

"He should think of us as equals. Immigrants have built that country," she said.

In June, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that domestic and gang violence would generally no longer be accepted as reasons for migrants to be granted asylum. Trump has said this week that those in the caravan would not get asylum — though U.S. law allows them the right to apply — and warned them to turn around.

The Trump administration's vehement opposition and tough rhetoric has at least some in the caravan weighing alternatives.

Tifany Morandis, 19, was traveling with her husband, 28-year-old Javier Sanchez, and their two sons, 7-year-old Angel and 9-month-old Cesar. Her nose and face sun-scorched after many days on the road, she said she was very tired and is considering stopping in Tijuana, the Mexican border city across from San Diego.

"Donald Trump has made things very complicated at the border, and better that we stay in Tijuana than fight with him," Morandis said.

But many are hopeful. "Even stones can soften," Cuellos said.

IMHO : I would hope that India adopts this Policy to prevent further Additions to the Illegal Immigrants from Terroristan and Bangladesh!

Core inflation hits 4-year high in October - Shahbaz Rana

ISLAMABAD: The interest rate is bound to rise further in the next monetary policy announcement as core inflation inched up further to a four-year high of 8.2% in October 2018, according to data released by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) on Friday.

The 8.2% core inflation is slightly lower than the key discount rate of 8.5% that the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) announced in September for a period of two months. The narrowing gap between the key interest rate and the core inflation may lead to another round of interest rate hikes in the current fiscal year.

Even the headline inflation, measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), jumped 7% in October – the highest pace in the past four years and beating expectation of less than 6% inflation.

Inflation touches 45-month high at 5.8%

The worrying inflation reading points towards the unofficial estimate made by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that inflation in Pakistan would reach close to 14% by the end of current fiscal year in June 2019.

Core inflation, excluding volatile food and energy prices, went up from 8% in September. The 8.2% core inflation was the highest in the past over four years. Last time, when the reading stood above that level was in July 2014 when the core inflation was 8.3%.

A further increase in the interest rate will make it more challenging for Prime Minister Imran Khan to achieve his goal of constructing five million homes at affordable costs.

Image

The headline inflation soared 7% in October, which was significantly higher than expectation. Key factors behind the 7% inflation were increase in prices of oil and gas, said the PBS National Accounts’ acting member.

Gas prices increased 104.9% in October whereas high-speed diesel prices rose 34.2% in the month that caused nearly 45% hike in bus fares. Heating oil prices increased by 32% last month.

Overall, prices of the housing, water, electricity and gas group increased by one-tenth. The group has a 29.4% weight in the overall inflation basket – the second largest group after food.

Core inflation jumps to four-year high at 8%

Cost of educational services increased 11.5% and Urdu language newspaper charges rose 55% on the back of currency depreciation and increase in the paper cost. Transport group prices surged 18.6% compared to the same month a year ago.

Due to overall inflationary expectations, prices of almost every commodity increased in October, except for some perishable food items. The health cost increased over 9%, followed by nearly 7% rise in prices of clothing and footwear.

Inflation is inching up, particularly from March 2018 onwards. So far, the average inflation in first four months of the current fiscal year (Jul-Oct 2018) stood at 6% as compared to 3.84% in the corresponding period of previous fiscal year. The central bank has also been continuously adjusting its inflationary forecast and lately revised it upwards to 7.5%.

According to minutes of the second last monetary policy committee meeting held in July, the SBP said the headline inflation was expected to rise due to a spillover impact of the ongoing fiscal expansion, potential pass-through of the most recent exchange rate adjustments and the impact of higher inflationary expectations as reflected in the core inflation.

After July, the government has also levied more regulatory duties in addition to letting the rupee depreciate further against the US currency. The impact of these measures will be more visible in coming months.

La-Whore Based Paki "Liberal" Writer Salman Rashid Starts A Petition Against Khadim Rizvi :mrgreen:

Jail Khadim Hussain Rizvi for spreading Terrorism among Pakistan And Destroying Properties

Jail Khadim Hussain Rizvi on the behalf of spreading fear and terrorism among the whole country of Pakistan. as well as destroying Public Properties
And make them repay the value they destroyed. Roads are blocked. Due to this importing of daily agriculture items is heavily effected.School,Collages and Universities are closed since 2 days because of him and his Rioting Group. They have caused so much damage to the overall image of Pakistan what image :mrgreen:
Numerous cars were burnt,Numerous people were hurt.Numerous Buildings were raided. Green belts around the roads are burnt. A Woman died while giving birth because she couldnt reach an hospital.A Man in his 65's died because of an heart attack because he as well couldnt get to an Hospital
.
Among the conditions dictated to the Govt by Tehreek Labbaik for signing the "peace agreement" is that the Labbaik is "not to be held responsible " for any damage to property or life that might have occurred during the riots. So, Labbaik is safe from liability . :mrgreen:
They aren't just damaging their own image they are actually destroying Pakistan indirectly as well as the image of Islam globally . This isnt the teaching of so called "Islam" he likes to preach . Everything he is doing is against Humanity Rights
f he wants to challenge Supreme Courts decision then he should post a counter case on it. Blocking roads causing mayhem isnt the way of getting things done. Islam does not teach us to spread chaos instead Islam is the religion of peace . TLP should be disbanded and Khadim Hussain should be jailed A.S.A.P

To be fair to Labbaik, IMO, I do not think that they should solely be held responsible for bespoiling PBUH's name or the image of Malsi . That honour should go to Saudia . They have been bombing their co-brothers in Yemen, strangling Saudi dissidents in their consulates , hacking their body parts with a saw and then dissolving the same in acid to destroy the "evidence". "Credit" should be given where "credit" is due :twisted:

Imran Khan, XI Jinping sign 16 agreements to curb poverty in Pakistan; Beijing declines to reveal amount loaned to Islamabad
Beijing: China said it will provide the "necessary support" to Pakistan to tide over the present financial crisis, expand CPEC projects as the two countries signed 16 agreements on Saturday after talks between Prime Minister Imran Khan and his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang to boost their "all-weather" strategic ties.
Khan is in Beijing on his maiden visit to China as the two countries grapple to iron out differences over the multi-billion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and Islamabad approaching 'friendly nations' to avoid a tough IMF bailout package.
In his meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping on Friday, Khan in a candid admission said: "Unfortunately, our country is going through a low point at the moment with two very big deficits, a fiscal deficit and a current account deficit".
Li, who held a ceremonial welcome for Khan, said "we have a high-level of political trust and close cooperation in all fields. Pakistan has always been regarded as a foreign policy priority by China".
Thanking Li, Khan said: "the relationship between the two countries has deepened since then because the CPEC in 2013 was just an idea. Now it is on the ground. And it has caught the imagination of the people of Pakistan". Pakistan sees China as a great opportunity to progress, attract investment, he said. Once a CPEC critic during the previous Nawaz Sharif government, Khan said: the CPEC "gives us an opportunity to raise our standard of living, growth rate. You will see the difference because a lot has happened since 2013".
After he became Prime Minister, China had agreed to address his concerns to build more projects with focus on the western region of Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The CPEC has also become a major irritant in India-China relations with New Delhi voicing its opposition to the infrastructure project as it traverses through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. After talks between Khan and Li, officials of both the sides signed 16 agreements mainly relating to poverty alleviation in Pakistan, strengthening cooperation in agriculture and industrial sectors and technical training. China has not confirmed reports that it would provide $6 billion to Pakistan.

Madame Minister @ShireenMazari1 shouldn’t your ministry at least write to Facebook and twitter to block Khadim Rizvi and his accounts? How can any one threaten the state and its institutions

Good Example of "Paki Mentality" Re: Asia Bibi :mrgreen:

I'm done. fxck it. Rant. :mrgreen:

I'm so disappointed after listening to my family talk about Asia bibi. They're "Moderate" muslims, who do not support TLP's terrorist acts but wouldn't mind crying conspiracy over supreme court overruling a death sentence(something that happens 85% of the time). The conspiracy is that we're doing this to please our Western Gods who put pressure on us or otherwise no $$ lol. Why would a decision be overturned. Our high courts would obviously not make a mistake, right? IT HAPPENS 85% OF THE TIME.

These are people with Master's and PHDs, some of them from abroad. These are people with and without without beards. These are average Pakistanis. The redditors on here represent a very very very small minority(the real "chota tabqa" lol). We aren't progressing. I just can't see how. How can the case even be allowed to proceed now without the pressure of the country going to shit if the decision isn't guilty. No lawyer in their right mind would have the guts to defend Asia bibi. Her lawyer is a hero and i hope he gets out of here for his own safety. We can't have more Shahbaz Taseer's dying in vain. Idk man. What killed me was this one comment from a relative. "Is saaray masla say ek baat wazih hoti hai. Islam abhi bhi zinda hai aur har waqt zinda rahega" with a smile. Of course that person clarified that they don't support some of the acts that happened, which were 99% planted just to get negative propaganda against the religious parties. Do you even need to engineer negative propaganda against them? Ffs they provide that every time they open their mouth. I'm just done with this country. I hated people who used to say this after something bad happened. But i just can't help it anymore. I'm sorry. I'm becoming what I hate.

Khadim Rizvi, Fast Becoming The "New Hafiz Saeed" Of Pakistan :roll:

Asia Bibi acquittal: State succumbs to might of Khadim Rizvi yet again
Nov 4, 2018
Naeem Ahmed Qazi

Spectators, mere spectators were the institutions and Parliament while citizens had to face the rage of religious extremists throughout the country. Pakistan was taken over by an organized radical group within two hours of the announcement of the judgement acquitting Asia BiBi, who was sentenced to death by Session Court and then by High Court and was behind the bars since 2009 on blasphemy charges.Motorways were blocked; markets and fuel stations were shut. Above all, almost all the educational institutions had to suspend the learning process across the country. Only fear prevailed among the masses: fear of death, anarchy, civil war, looters and riots. But the most devastating part of this horrific episode was fear of being labelled as a ‘KAFIR’.

Was his party not personally blessed by a Major General Of the Paki Army, a few months ago :twisted:
The nation observed inhumane, brutal and shocking scenes during the lockdown. Some of the scenes were extremely disturbing which depicted the mob looting the poorest while in others, the rich had to witness their vehicles destroyed by a mob apparently chanting the slogans of Islam. In one of the acts of plundering, a kid was, mercilessly, deprived of bananas which he was selling on a donkey cart in Sheikhupura. That’s not all. The role that a state must play proactively to safeguard its peaceful citizens was altogether missing. What kind of governance is this? While people suffered on the roads, the state was a mere spectator. Federal Ministers’ conduct depicted as if they have no direct relation with those who were engaged in dialogues with the extremists.

Imran is on "vacation in China" . ( begging for "funds" ) When he returns back, some "action" will be taken :twisted:
Apart from damaging properties of innocent people on roads, a battle took place on social media. Facebook and Twitter, particularly, became the most powerful tools of inciting violence, defaming and abusing the state organs as well as each other. The government of Pakistan allowed the fanatics to spread the hate speech. Moulana Khadim Rizvi exploited these social platforms to extend the Fatwas of Kufr and instigated the cooks, drivers and security personals of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan to slay the judges if they want to guarantee a place in paradise.
Every Pakistani is shocked after the hate speech spread by Tehrik e LabaikYaRasool Allah (SAW). Every Pakistani feels insecure in ‘NAYA PAKISTAN’. There are questions in their minds which must be answered by the state.

Twitter ( probably "controlled" from India ) has refused to block Khadim Rizvi;s account :twisted:
This isn’t the first time when Khadim Rizvi has used coarse language to successfully achieve his targets. Simultaneously, he fearlessly curses and threatens the higher judiciary but seems to be invulnerable, whereas political leaders are dealt with an iron hand on opinion against the judges in this country; TalalChoudry and Danyal Aziz were made accountable by Chief Justice Mr Saqib Nisar but Khadim Rizvi and his followers are too strong to be held accountable. This gives a clear message to the masses that the land of pure is governed by the Law of the Jungle where only weak is punished.

Rizvi once even threatened to nuke Holland with Paki Atom Bumb . And look what happened to "poor" Saquib now ! All of a sudden, he had to be rushed to Haspataal for Heart Surgery . Is this just co-incidental or what :twisted:
The pact between the Federal Government, Punjab Government and TLP is ample to endorse the idea that strong and powerful is above the law in Pakistan. Even the government is helpless. Not only it fears the outrage of Khadim Rizvi, it also surrenders all its powers by letting them harm the people at will.
What remains the value of the legislature if it discriminates the weak and strong? Pardoning and releasing all the terrorists clearly puts a question mark, why a huge amount of money is spent on elections if all the decisions are made through street power eventually?

A successful coup by a junior officer ( Captain or Colonel ) with Islamic credentials , allied with a Khadim Rizvi kind of a character, would change Paki political landscape in a jiffy. Will however be a nightmare for India and the West though . Lots of exodus to the west (like in Iran !) "Some" relief from" massive corruption" . Fate of Immy and his likes will be decided by the so-called "awaam" :twisted:
When achieving the desired results is certain through agitation, lockdowns, hate speech and vandalism, is there any need of getting rotten before the courts of law which not only take a lifetime in making decisions but also fear the mobs.

Only in Pakistan can a Supreme Court Judgement can be reversed through sheer goonda gardi :twisted:
There is no doubt about the sensitivity of the issue and love of the Prophet (SAW) is also essential for a Muslim. The writer himself is ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of Shaan e Mustafa (SAW) anytime but harming, plundering and looting the fellow countrymen is not a service to Islam.

To be frank, the writer is "purchasing insurance" here . To show his Islami credentials, in case of he himself being targeted :mrgreen:
Educating the children is mandatory to avoid the alike incidents but the state can’t leave the citizens vulnerable. It’s the state’s responsibility to provide security to the people notwithstanding the religion, sect, ethnicity or political viewpoint of the challenger.

Beijing Not Begging ; PTV Issues Apology Because Of Major Typo :lol:

‘Begging’: PTV slammed for hilarious typo during PM Imran’s live address in Beijing
Nov 4, 2018

ISLAMABAD – The state broadcaster has issued a formal apology for giving a hilarious caption to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s location “by mistake”.The administration of Pakistan Television (PTV) says someone from the news team ( Ganja supporters :roll: ) accidentally mistyped PM Khan’s location as ‘Begging’ instead of Beijing – bringing a storm to the social media.
The state-run channel also issued an apology on Twitter, saying the incident is regrettable and a strict action has been initiated ( please provide details !) under rules against concerned officials
The premier is currently visiting China to seek Chinese assistance in boosting the country’s economy.During Khan’s visit to China, both the sides have signed 15 agreements and memorandums of understanding (MOUs) for cooperation in diverse fields were signed between the two countries.
Earlier, PM Khan successfully got a bailout package of $6 billion from the friendly kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Chinis will also oblige ! So "begging" accomplished in Begging ! Case closed !
