Iran 'ready to connect Gwadar to Chabahar port'- XINHUA

TEHRAN: Iran says it is ready to connect Pakistan’s Gwadar port with Chabahar port to promote trade and commerce in the region.

The proposal was put forward by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who met Pakistan’s civil-military leadership in Islamabad on Friday, reported Press TV.

“I’ve come here with a proposal for the government of Pakistan for connection between Chabahar and Gwadar… We believe that Chabahar and Gwadar can complement each other,” Zarif was quoted as saying.

“We can connect Chabahar and Gwadar, and then through that connect Gwadar to our entire railroad system, from Iran to the North Corridor, through Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan, and also through Azerbaijan, Russia, and through Turkey.” It is more economic to ship Cargoes from Gwadiwadiyaar or even Karachi to the Persian Gulf Port of Bandar Khomeyni to the North Corridor

Iran, India and Afghanistan signed a trilateral transit agreement in Tehran in May 2016, which allows the three countries to open new routes of connection by converting Chabahar port into a transit hub.

The port in Chabahar, only about 100 kilometres from the Pakistan border and located on the Indian Ocean, is Iran’s largest outside the Gulf.

It is also the only Iranian port with exemptions from economic sanctions re-imposed by the United States in 2018.

Iran Looks to Remote Port to Beat US Sanctions

The ships that officials say have docked in the past year have only loaded and unloaded 2.1 million tonnes of cargo, a far cry from the port's annual capacity of 8.5 million tonnes.

Hossein Shahdadi of the provincial ports and maritime authority said that in the first 11 months of the past Iranian year, which started on March 21, 2018, "there has been a 56 percent increase in cargo handled at the port compared with the previous year.”

Now to the High Fiction Port of Gwadar – No. Exports. Only Imports

Pakistan Economic Survey 2017-2018 :TABLE 13.1 D
PORTS-Cargo Handled

2015 : 50.6 Thousand

2016 : 80.4 Thousand

2017-18 - Jul-Feb (P) : 23.8 Thousand

Comments : So it would be an act of Terroristani Stupidity to Entertain these “Wild Stories for Crazy Persons”

Historical ‘Guru Nanak palace’ demolished in Pakistan's Punjab
excerpted from the above
A centuries-old ‘Guru Nanak palace’ was partially demolished by a group of vandals who sold its precious windows and doors in Pakistan’s Punjab province, a media report said on Monday.

The walls of the four-storey building had pictures of Guru Nanak as well as of various Hindu rulers and princes, Dawn news reported.

The ‘Palace of Guru Nanak’, said to have been built over four centuries ago, was frequented by a number of Sikhs from across the world, including India, the report said.
The structure at a village in Narowal city--about 100 km from the provincial capital Lahore--had 16 rooms with each of them having at least three delicate doors and at least four ventilators, it said.

The group of locals not only partially demolished the structure allegedly with the connivance of auqaf department officials but also sold its precious windows, doors and ventilators, the report said.

India snubs Pakistan for Modi's swearing-in ceremony: sources
Alasdair Pal
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India will not invite Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to Thursday’s swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi, who starts his second term as India’s prime minister, two sources in the foreign ministry said, suggesting any early warming in ties between the nuclear-armed neighbors is unlikely.
.....
An Indian government statement on Monday said the leaders of Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, and Bhutan - all members, with India, of the little-known Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) - have been invited to Modi’s swearing-in.
“This is in line with Government’s focus on its ‘Neighbourhood First’ policy,” a government spokesman said.
The leaders of Kyrgyzstan and Mauritius have also been invited, but two sources in Indian’s foreign ministry said Pakistan will not be on the list, without providing further information.

If true and seen through, this will be a good sensible step. Given their direct intervention into our election process through Pulwama and the later reverse-jinx from Im-the-Dim in the form of "BJP will be good for peace" etc., inviting him would be Gandhian :wink: self-defeatism even though our opposition and the left will go ga-ga over it.

Pakistan may have launched Project Harvest to target retired Indian Army, police officers
Pakistan's ISI has launched a new project against India named 'Project Harvest' to target retired Army and police officers.
Manjeet Sehgal
Chandigarh, May 28, 2019
Pakistan's ISI is learnt to have launched 'Project Harvest' against India, which is aimed at targeting senior retired police and Army officers in Punjab and other parts of India. India Today TV has learnt that ISI has launched 'Project Harvest' to start a drive to target retired police officials and army personnel. Sources say a Canada-based Khalistan activist has been given the responsibility to launch 'Project Harvest'.
Security agencies are also keeping an eye on the activities of pro-Khalistan group 'Sikhs For Justice' (SFJ), which is sponsoring free air tickets to people willing to join the Khalistan Referendum movement. The agencies are also investigating whether SFJ was part of ISI's 'Project Harvest'.

320 Pakistanis to be brought back from Malaysia on PM Imran’s instructions

ISLAMABAD: On special instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Pakistan International Airlines has arranged a aircraft to bring back 320 Pakistanis from Malaysia on Wednesday enabling them to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with their families.

A special plane of PIA will bring home Pakistani nationals lodged in Malaysian jails, but stuck due to cancellation of direct flights between the two countries, Radio Pakistan reported.

There are over 320 Pakistani nationals in the Malaysian jails who have completed their sentence term and were unable to be repatriated as direct flights got suspended in the last week of February this year owing to the regional situation.

The prime minister issued special directives to arrange return of these detainees so that they may be able to join their families on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

A Pakistani legislator, who the country's military says "assaulted" a checkpoint in the northwestern district of North Waziristan, has denied the allegation and told Al Jazeera he is in hiding and fears for his life, as rights groups called for an impartial investigation into the incident.

"I am at a safe location, although it is not that safe," Mohsin Dawar, a member of parliament and leader of the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) rights group, told Al Jazeera by satellite phone from an undisclosed location on Tuesday.

"They have surrounded my village. All the routes out are blocked."


The guy is an equivalent of a Lok Sabha member and the TFTAs have surrounded his village and wants to throw him into a dungeon :shock:

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has urged Pakistan to immediately release journalist Gohar Wazir who was among a group of at least 22 people detained in Bannu on Monday.

Gohar and 21 others were detained under Section 3 of the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance and sent to a jail in Haripur on Tuesday

In a statement issued on May 28, the New-York based international organisation that advocates for the rights of journalists, said that Khyber News reporter Gohar Wazir, who was arrested from Bannu on Tuesday, had interviewed MNA Mohsin Dawar a day prior.


So TFTAs jailed a reporter for interviewing a Member of the National Assembly. Pakis have the temerity to say that their media is independent and asks all the tough questions :rotfl:

Changing the dynamics of Pakistan-India relations - Talat Masood

The landslide victory of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a clear reaffirmation that promotion of Hindu nationalist politics had worked. This factor seemed so overwhelming that the voters ignored the central plank of his 2014 elections that rested on creating new jobs and improving national security. The voters must have also realised that Congress and its allies were no alternative as their past performance and present quality of leadership indicates. More importantly, as astute watchers of Indian politics have noted that the campaign strategy of PM Modi to reach to the broad masses by attending to their very basic needs — such as building toilets on a mass scale, providing easy loans and promoting housing schemes — conveyed commitment and gave a message of hope to the poor. He equally tried to pamper the corporate world and business leaders by offering them opportunities of high investment returns and security. Not long ago the Election Commission of India was looked up to for utmost neutrality and fairness. This time many were blaming it for ignoring the BJP receiving financial support that crossed limits of propriety.

Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated his Indian counterpart through a tweet that was reciprocated and was followed up by a phone call. The questions on every one’s mind: Will Modi, who has won with a heavy mandate, be more accommodating and a less divisive PM than he was in his first term? Is his policy toward Pakistan going to be any different or about the same? Will PM Imran Khan’s repeated gestures of goodwill carry weightage and what are the major factors that would determine India’s attitude toward Pakistan?

A major plank of PM Modi’s election canvassing was based on targeting Pakistan and wooing the extremist Hindu groups. In terms of performance, unemployment in India has risen steeply, the farmers are complaining that their incomes have fallen and industrial production has taken a fall. To sidetrack these major failings, Modi focused on security, Hindu nationalism and Pakistan bashing.

For Pakistan’s leadership the great challenge is how to relate to the politically powerful and rejuvenated Modi. After all, he is the same PM who had recently boasted of having ordered an aerial attack on Pakistan. It is a different matter that it was an embarrassing failure of the Indian military, but for the general public, perception is more important than reality. Despite the unpleasant past, the path pursued by PM Imran Khan to engage in right earnestness is correct and has the support of major political parties and the military.

The pertinent question is what are the determining factors on the basis of which our future relationship would rest? Modi being voted back to power by an increased majority reaffirmed the apprehension that the character of Indian politics and social structure has undergone a radical transformation. To put it bluntly, India is now a full-fledged unapologetic Hindu state with no pretentions of being secular. In this is woven a strong element of Indian and Hindu nationalism merging as the dominant component of Indian politics. And these policies are in conflict with the secular democracy that India in the past professed and took pride in. It would be interesting to see how social and political scientist and historians would view this development. A simplistic analysis would probably express the inevitability of this phenomenon once India was partitioned on the basis of a religious divide.

What are likely to be its implications for the minorities of India especially the Muslims that are already the most oppressed class is to be seen. And linked with this is how the Babri mosque court verdict would play out. Another much larger question is if this victory would embolden Modi to fulfil his election manifesto of revoking the Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and thereby changing the character of Kashmir. For this, the BJP will need a two-thirds majority in Rajia Sabha and a four-year wait. With the Valley already in full revolt, any such move would only exacerbate the situation posing greater hardship for beleaguered Kashmiris, a new challenge for the Muslims of India and the Pakistan-India relations.

The gross violations of human rights in Kashmir remain a serious impediment to developing mutual confidence between the two countries. This clearly will remain a restraining factor unless Modi seriously revisits his Kashmir policy.

India’s hostile attitude towards CPEC also weighs against lifting pressure on Pakistan. This too will have to change. India does not want to JOIN CPEC! Terroristan must accept the Indian view point - END OF STORY!

Pakistan has also tried to ensure that the UN-banned organisations are kept in strict check. This measure would not only restore the confidence of the international community but also strengthen democratic norms within the country while providing no grounds to India for pushing Pakistan on the defensive with its attendant drawbacks. Action against militant groups is an essential prerequisite of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) for Pakistan’s removal from the grey list. Effective action against these entities did facilitate the recently hard-bargained IMF staff agreement as well. Pakistan’s security establishment is fully aware of that and is taking appropriate measures to ensure maximum compliance.

The United States would support improvement in Pakistan-India relations provided Pakistan’s military would persuade the Taliban leadership to come to an honourable settlement with the US on Afghanistan. China has always encouraged Pakistan to engage with India and recalibrate the support of anti-India militant groups to gain its confidence and that of the international community.

Undoubtedly, the past history of Pakistan-India relations is a major impediment to building mutual trust. But this is what leadership is all about, to face the challenge and make genuine efforts at changing the course and dynamics of these relations for the larger good of its people. Furthermore, if India seriously aspires to play a major regional and global role it has to relate to Pakistan more positively and show greater consideration toward the other south Asian countries. Pakistan too has its obligations as a responsible member of South Asia that it is expected to faithfully comply with.

There are no sane ones in that land.

And yes, this is exactly what they are whining about that NaMo was able to deliver and provide for those who needed it most. They wanted him to fail, they were rooting for him to fail and they were projecting through their media and associates that he had failed, hoping to sway enough Indian voters against the PM.

Note the close symmetry with some of the BIF and Congress chatter in India in wake of these elections- ECI not living upto its reputation, heavy corporate funding etc.

These people are furious, helpless and writhing in agony after the LS elections and what infuriates and frustrates them the most is that no one in GoI or the policy making circles has any time or ear for their whinging.

Pakistan races to protect mountain villages from runaway glaciers
HUNZA: A menacing black glacier is bulldozing its way down a valley in northern Pakistan, threatening to cut off a vital road link to China and blocking melt-water that could flood villages below.
Up close, the surging wall of ice almost 200 metres (656 ft) high, above Hassanabad village in Hunza district, cracked and groaned in the May sun as ice and debris fell off in big chunks.
The glacier has been advancing since last July, according to Faheem Baig, a shepherd from the village next to the Karakoram Highway (KKH), 4 km (2.5 miles) downstream of the glacier mouth.
“I went off with my yaks to the summer pasture far up above the glacier in May, and [b]when I came back to get some supplies in October, the valley was completely blocked by this glacier,”he said.

More importantly, as astute watchers of Indian politics have noted that the campaign strategy of PM Modi to reach to the broad masses by attending to their very basic needs — such as building toilets on a mass scale, providing easy loans and promoting housing schemes — conveyed commitment and gave a message of hope to the poor. He equally tried to pamper the corporate world and business leaders by offering them opportunities of high investment returns and security.

Modi being voted back to power by an increased majority reaffirmed the apprehension that the character of Indian politics and social structure has undergone a radical transformation. To put it bluntly, India is now a full-fledged unapologetic Hindu state with no pretentions of being secular. In this is woven a strong element of Indian and Hindu nationalism merging as the dominant component of Indian politics. And these policies are in conflict with the secular democracy that India in the past professed and took pride in.

ISI meddling in judiciary again, to get judges to toe their line and get rid of any judges who even pretend to be independent:

Pakis have been engaging in too much wishful thinking and drinking of koolaid supplied by Indian far-left nutjobs, and combined with their own delusions of importance and grandeur, it has resulted in Modi's win completely shocking them and it seems to have pushed them off the deep end! :lol:

Again, these two are people who have tended to criticize the establishment in their own roundabout way in the past. One can only imagine how the rabid nutjobs like Pagal Sehgal or wifebeater Munir Akram are feeling. :rotfl:

COAS endorses death sentence for retired brigadier, a civilian for 'espionage, leaking information'


Death sentence implies that they either compromised something serious, or Pakis want to send a message. Wonder who they were spying for, and what is the significance of the timing of this announcement.

One MNA has been arrested and declared a traitor without trial. Another MNA is in hiding. People reminding us about the sanctity of a check post are right. The country is being run by the army. Who hasn't received that memo yet?

I doubt if it is CIA. Usually americans would have lifted them upon suspicion or at least tried to reduce the sentence for such high value assets.

safe to say it as official.

pak army has lost the plot.

without any help from India. It seems Modi has spooked them no end and they are taking all irrational, self defeating decisions.

1. firing at unarmed civilians in south waziristan.

2. illegal detention of member of national assembly from south waziristan. Making a mockery of so-called democracy.

3. Lathi charge, tear gas, water cannon's and arrests used against some 1000 ppp supporters gathered in lahore to protest against harassment of zardari by army controlled NAB. Allegedly managed by new incharge of home affairs, punjab, brig Ijaz Shah who is also involved in benazir assasination. :roll: :P

3. reference filed against supreme court justice qazi faez isa to block his promotion to chief justice because he earlier gave a couple of anti-establishment verdicts.
