He said there was a "serious attempt" at carrying out a terrorist attack during the ongoing cricket tournament and that a terrorist was arrested.


Who did they arrest? Kiyani or Pasha?

Now that Malik has gone out and said there is going to be a terrorist attack, there WILL be a terrorist attack. Only thing not known is whether it will be at the Final or Semi Final where Pakis are playing. It will definitely be a game where Pakis are playing. Then Mailk or Zardari can claim not only that they warned India about it but Indians are involved in it.

Shiv saar borrowing your quote; wondering if any BS meter can be calibrated to measure these! US State dept has outdone itself in this message!
The US and Pakistan are united by shared values, common interests and mutual respect, she said


"We are constantly striving for greater tolerance, to enforce the rule of law and uphold the principles of democracy in both our countries," she added.


"These words ring true today as Pakistan works to fulfill the vision of its founders," Clinton said.

Quite a loaded statement that. All those IED Mubaraks really must be leaving the ears ringing.

After reading your first post and PP article; I was secretly hoping that the Indian team would avenge 11/26 more effectively than GOI could ever do...

But I underestimated the Indian team :oops:

Whats problem in legalizing sports betting. With half-hearted efforts the betting will not go away. Instead of giving a lucrative business to D gang, which indeed will be used against Indian interests, why cannot govt legalize it.

The better team won in both cases. No surprise actually and no need to fix it. I watched the entire India-Aus match. Both the teams fought so hard to win and it was a nailbiter until the 44th over. This is no fixing IM "untrained layman" O.

Do you have sources to back up your claim or you are pulling it out of thin air? I am guessing it is the later.

An article in Dawn Bahrain spillover to spread to Pakistan?

The reason for the selective silence — if not tacit public support — is easy enough to identify: Saudi Arabia.

“All the religious parties have interests, economic and personal, with Saudi Arabia,” said Amir Mateen, a veteran journalist who has tracked religious parties in Pakistan, adding, “The religious parties, along with everyone else, have yet again been exposed when it comes to principled politics.”


A former ambassador familiar with Middle Eastern dynamics was more blunt: “The Saudis have bought everyone on the religious right. And remember, they have that massive Madressah network in Pakistan. They (the Saudis) can create problems for any government in Pakistan.”

However, Bahrain does not just represent a foreign-policy compromise for the Pakistani state and political class. The Shia-Sunni tensions in Bahrain are couched in a wider Saudi Arabia-Iran struggle for influence in the Middle East, a struggle which could turn especially bitter in the battle for Bahrain.

If the tiny island kingdom with a population of just 1.2 million, including 660,000 non-nationals, were to fall to the Shia majority, the next uprising could be in the oil-rich, Shia-dominated Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. “Iran is trying to enter Saudi Arabia,” said Syed Saleem Shehzad, Pakistan bureau chief of the Asia Times Online.


Now comes the interesting stuff. From what is written here, all those IED mubaraks every friday and all the 'civil works' in Parachinar are nothing and TSP has nothing to do with it. On the other hand TSP is poor blighted victim of global geopolitical dynamics...

With the stakes so high in Bahrain, there are apprehensions Pakistan could be drawn into a renewed conflict between Shia and Sunni and once again become a proxy battleground for Saudi and Iranian interest.

According to Khaled Ahmed, an expert on sectarianism and militancy, “The Bahrain situation is likely to settle down because there’s too much at stake. But if it doesn’t, since Iran is supposed to be secretly supporting (the protesters in) Bahrain, Sunni groups here may hit Shias and Shias may respond.”

Mr Ahmed and others noted that while Bahraini Shias have historically distanced themselves from Iran and belong to a different Shia school of thought, Iran’s regional interests have pushed it to support the Bahraini Shias.

For now, however, at least three factors appear to minimise the possibility of an imminent sectarian backlash inside Pakistan.

One, Shia militant groups are believed to be on the wane. “Other than in parts of Karachi and Quetta, Shia militancy is almost dead,” according to Rana Jawad, an Islamabad-based journalist who has extensively covered militancy. (What about their Sunni counterparts?)

Two, the disparate religious elements in Pakistan appear to be edging closer in recent months. According to a senior police officer, “Since the Namoos-i-Risalat issue, we’ve seen even Shia and Sunni groups being very cordial to each other. There is a sectarian rapprochement wave in the country.Really?, what then are the weekend 20-20s about?

Amir Mateen agreed, “The Shia element is on the defensive right now. And the religious parties are trying to unite and bring Shias on board because in the domestic political context they know they can’t do much if they stand divided.”

Third, most observers believe the situation in Bahrain will not spiral out of control as it has in Libya. “The (Bahraini) king isn’t like Qadhafi. Plus, given what’s at stake, nobody will want to see this deteriorate. The (American) 5th Fleet is there, the (Saudi) Eastern Province is nearby, they will figure out a way,” said Tanvir Ahmed Khan, a former foreign secretary.

Khaled Ahmed suggested the “conflict would not be prolonged” and that the “standalone, Akbhari Shias” of Bahrain would not be able to resist for long.However, in a region where few things have gone according to decades-old assumptions and expectations in recent months, worries remain.

According to the senior police officer, colleagues monitoring the rapprochement between the religious elements in Pakistan were concerned. “It’s the Bahrain thing mainly. There’s definite concern that events there don’t end up spoiling things over here.”

The bomber had been aiming to strike the building but failed to do so because of barricades that had been erected outside, he said. :(

Part of the police station was still completely demolished by the blast, Rashid added, with the impact also damaging at least 10 nearby houses.

Is it not an act of blasphemy for a legislator in the worlds first IEDological Muslim State, self-claimed to have been formed as a safe haven for the Mohammadens of the Indian Sub-Continent and an Islamic Republic to boot to suggest that the country ought to be more ecstatic over “a game of cricket “rather than “ religion-related issues”?

Will Ayaz Amir now be pronounced Haji Bull Cattle for penning the above particularly on a Friday, a day on which the Muslim Sabbath falls?:


Reinventing the ideology of Pakistan

Ayaz Amir
Friday, March 25, 2011

The Pakistan ecstatic and bursting with joy after the victory over the West Indies in Bangladesh was the real Pakistan, the Pakistan that was always meant to be, the land of our hopes and dreams, rather than the ugly caricature on display when bigots and fanatics, and mind-blowing idiots, seize upon metaphysical or religion-related issues and try to whip up a storm over them.

Just a game of cricket and nothing more but it is hard to remember a similar explosion of joy across the length and breadth of the country, transcending all regional and provincial boundaries, as on this occasion. A profounder cleansing experience could scarcely be imagined. As long as the game lasted, everything else, all our sorrows – and we have more than our share of them – were forgotten. All that mattered was our team and its brilliant performance.

The media too are complicit in this by breathelessly asserting that India is going to fight another war with Pakistan in the world cup semi final. At least a few reports will complete the paragraph and say:

"India and Pakistan are nuclear armed arch enemies who have fought three wars over the disputed territory of Kashmir, a Muslim dominated state within Hindu majority India where Indian forces are accused of having massacred tens of thousands of protestors. India accuses Pakistan of sponsoring terrorism in India such as the deadly attacks in Mumbai of 2008. Pakistan is an ally in the war on terror and a victim of terrorism. Cricket is a religion in the subcontinent and Indians and Pakistanis see a match between the two rivals as war that encourages jingoism and celebration with fireworks and gunfire. Nations are known to have gone to war over a sports event and India and Pakistan nearly fought nuclear war in 1999, defused by US intervention. An unnamed Indian official says that nothing is being left to chance. A Pakistani spokesperson stated that the performance of the Pakistani team should inspire nations to solve the problem of suppression of human rights peacefully without guns in a reference to the 70,000 dead Muslim Kashmiri men, women and children under Indian military rule"


The this news item will be carried by Times of India and the Hindu on their front pages. Indian media are 90% morons led by cretins like Darkha Butt and that son of cricketer. Apart from NYT, Washington Post, The Telegraph and The Guardian. And the ToI and Hindu will feel proud that they are like NYT onlee - gora saab pats kaalu dog on his head and throws him a bone. Slurp.

This url leads to an article called "Pakistan Regains self-esteem" which is no less entertaining
Of course, it all owes to the vision and iron resolve of Pakistan’s present leadership. The biggest credit goes to President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Gilani and their allies in the government not only for giving a befitting and well-timed reaction but also- rather mainly- for inculcating the spirit of unity of approach among all the important segments of Pakistan’s institutional and political spectrum. Of course, the enabling environment has been created by the political team on the top which has, in turn, given birth to harmony among the institutions and within the political cadre. The end product is a position of strength coming the Pakistan’s way that has made it possible to deal with the United States with dignity.

Even in the matter of recently released American, Raymond Davis, the government did not show any signs of weakness although the government detractors had tried in vain to prove it otherwise. But the track record of the government, if perused objectively, proves that the government remained steadfast on its principled standpoint of freedom of judiciary, which was upheld through all difficult phases and without succumbing to innumerable pressures. The government rather facilitated the legal process to take its due course in a fair and just manner. Raymond Davis was released by a court of law through a legal process that draws strength from the Islamic law of Diyat (pardon by the legal heirs).

^^^ You are completely correct. True victory will only come about when cricket is banned in the Land of the Pure.

The 2009 monograph “Music, Chess and other Sins: Segregation, Integration, and Muslim Schools in Britain” by Denis MacEoin confirms that in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mohammadden religious doctrine views playing cricket as an Un-Mohammadden activity:

When a fatwa bank linked from a school24 tells a boy that dreaming of playing cricket for Pakistan is forbidden because it is a sacrilegious waste of time ……………..

The role Pakistani nationals play in the Bahraini security apparatus was further underlined on Sunday as reports emerged that as many as 1,000 men are being recruited by the army-run Fauji and Bahria foundations for the Bahrain National Guard.

But the attention garnered domestically by the role of Pakistani nationals in Bahrain — there are as many as 65,000, with thousands employed in the security services, according to a Foreign Office official

This Noble is a Pakistani lackey. One remembers his joint interview with Rehman Malik at Islamabad just after 26/11. He also criticized India for not sharing information etc. at that time. He has made it a habit to keep praising Pakistan at the drop of a hat. He once said, "Pakistan also showed courage by publicly stating that FIA investigations reveal Mumbai attacks were partially planned by certain Pak nationals." Why should a country show 'courage' to catch its terrorists except when these fellows are likely to spill the truth about the state's involvement with these non-state actors ? And, the Interpol Chief praises the courage then ?

Children from "Land of Pure" act out suicide blast
An amateur video posted on YouTube that shows young boys acting out a suicide attack has been condemned by UNICEF and by children's charities in Pakistan. The origin of the video is unclear, but it appears to have been filmed in the border areas of Pakistan or Afghanistan. Some of the participants appear to be as young as three or four.

Can we put this link in the first post of this thread "Understanding Pakistan"?

We have a right to use Kashmir to teach India a lesson: Prof. Hafeez Saeed saheb

Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, has claimed that Pakistan's radical groups have the "right" to use the Kashmir issue to "teach India a lesson".

Saeed, who currently heads the LeT's front organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawah, made the remarks while speaking at a programme organised by the Nawa-i-Waqt media group in Lahore on Thursday.

Alleging that India was "facilitating terrorist activities inside Pakistan", he said, "We have every right to use the Kashmir door to teach India a lesson."

He said India should "quit Kashmir as early as possible" as any "delay would prove harmful" for it.

Saeed acknowledged that the arrival of the United States and its allies in the region after the 9/11 terror attacks had dealt a blow to what he claimed was the "freedom movement" in Jammu and Kashmir.
The US had "pressurised Pakistan and gave India a free hand to erect fences along the Line of Control", he claimed.

Challenges faced by Muslim Ummah and their solutions


Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has alleged that India has been aiding terrorist activities in Pakistan and that Pakistanis have “every right to use the Kashmir door” to throw the book at the neighbouring country.

Speaking on the issue ‘Challenges faced by Muslim Ummah and their solutions’ at Hameed Nizami Hall in Lahore on Thursday, Saeed said that India was facilitating terrorist activities inside Pakistan and "we have every right to use Kashmir door to teach India a lesson".


<snip>

He also said that the rulers set Davis free against public aspirations and now they would have to face the consequences for betraying the nation.

sridhar, what is this they are talking about?

Shaardula, if you recall, there was a conference of the leaders/clerics of politico-religious right-wing parties of all hues and colour and sectarian affinities, after the murder of Salman Taseer. The Sunnis (Ahl-e-Hadith, Deobandi, Berelvi etc) and the Shi'a (Twelvers, Seveners etc.) attended this and demanded no change in Blasphemy law. They warned that anybody who defends a blasphemer was also a blasphemer and condemned to the same result as Taseer saheb (yes, they are very respectful at all times). This conference was organized by the Berelvis and Tehrik Namoos-e-Risalat Mahaz (TNRM) is a Berelvi outfit. This is the rapprochement that is being referred to.

From Rage to Retrospection - an Ex-Brigadier, PA and a PoW in 1971.
Just one mighty swing of war fortune, a single powerful convulsion of fate turned some of the most fearless fighters and brave soldiers into prisoners of war — virtual nonentities in the scheme of things. From having total command over the lives of those who led in the war, this is an utterly improbable transition. The horrendous fall from command in battle to Agra Jail’s reeking barracks was precipitous, swift and irreversible. It shattered many a strong heart and played havoc with the minds of young officers and raw soldiers. Only an exceptional few could manage to preserve their poise when all around were those who were losing theirs. To be a prisoner of war is never easy.

There is no regret for the genocide, there is no admission that a far superior enemy simply overwhelmed and outmanouevered the PA. It was all a 'swing of fortune'.

Closing of ranks was tactical and by one side only, the less pure variety. The Low Church of Berelvis and the Shi'a have no option other than to side with the High Church of Ahl-e-Hadiths, Deobandis and Salafis in the Blasphemy issue. Otherwise, they would have become fair game under the guise of supporting the blasphemers and slaughtered. Not that the Low Church is not capable of frothing in the mouth, especially at the corners which indicates deep piety; but, better sense dictated that they not be identified with the blasphemers. The Berelvis therefore took the lead.

A row between Pakistan's anti-terrorism courts and security agencies over the release of militants and the federal government's inability to push a key anti-terror amendment bill may paralyse Islamabad's effort to root out terrorism, a media report today said.

Officials associated with the anti-terrorism campaign attributed a recent surge in terror attacks in the northwestern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province to, among other things, the acquittal of militants by anti-terrorism courts, the Dawn newspaper quoted unnamed officials as saying.

After a "relatively long spell of quiet" in terrorist activities, militants "have struck back with a vengeance", the report quoted officials familiar with briefings given to the government and the military establishment as saying.

"We are heading for a paralysis," a senior unnamed official said. "The entire effort to catch these scum is going for a six. You catch them and the next thing you know is they are out and back in business," another frustrated official was quoted as saying.

Official figures revealed a spike in terrorist attacks in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa from December last year to March 20. There were a total of 96 incidents that claimed almost 200 lives and maimed hundreds more, as against 101 acts of terror during last year.

"Everyone worth knowing we had arrested is out, fighting us again," a senior police official said. At a briefing on internal security last month, the government was informed that 695 of 1,443 arrested militants had been bailed out, mostly by appellate courts, while 48 more had been acquitted by anti-terrorism courts.



The situation became so alarming that officials from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa held a long meeting with senior military officials at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi to find ways to overcome the problem.

Government officials cited several cases where they believed courts refused to accept the prosecution's evidence and set free "extremely dangerous terrorists". One such case involved the arrest of two would-be suicide bombers with a suicide jacket, 650 grams of high explosives, a detonating cord and a grenade in Peshawar.

The court in its judgement in November last year noted that any action must involve the use of explosives. "In the instant case, there is no allegation that the accused used the explosives or were caught while using it or they threatened to use the same.

"So the inference here is that so long as the terrorist did not explode his suicide vest and kill people, it does not constitute a crime," said a frustrated police investigator.

"And that the possession of a suicide vest does not mean that the bomber wanted to or threatened to use it. This is bizarre," the official said. The court in its judgement also said that explosives must be in the shape of a device and that the prosecution did not furnish any report to substantiate its case. "A suicide jacket with a primer and a hand grenade are explosive devices. Do we need a report from any expert to prove that?" the official asked.

I do not know what is there to complain about the judgement. The Learned Judge is correct. After all, every normal person in Pakistan walks around with these accoutrements. How can that be termed as terrorism ? Won't a Pakistani feel naked if he is deprived of a suicide vest ?

Muppalla saheb, I see great chanakianness in the invitation, though I don't know what it is. But, if they do come, there will certainly be a terrorist attack. If the chanakianness is that there presence will deter an attack, the Great Chanakya must make a few turns in his grave.
