Pakistan’s Flag Is A Symbol Of Freedom In India

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 5:32 am

This should come as news for Pakistani defeatists. After Kashmir, the rest of the dozen or so freedom movements in India see Pakistan as a symbol of liberty and freedom. Pakistan’s media and intelligence agencies should project these incidents and stoke more support inside these Indian states as retaliation for Indian terrorism inside Pakistan’s Balochistan, tribal belt and other cities.

GAUHATI, India—Depressed from how New Delhi is suppressing local Assamese people who want to carve a separate homeland out of India, people in Assam waved Pakistan’s flags in five districts.

The eastern Indian state is one of a dozen Indian states in the north and east where ferocious freedoms movements are in full swing, demanding the right of self determination from Indian rule.

As usual, the Indian government, blaming Pakistani agencies for the violence, has ordered an immediate enquiry for this incident.

The officials in New Delhi are so disturbed by this that they have invoked patriotism while asking newspaper editors across India to black out any news about the freedom movements.

This week a student delegation visited the State’s governor and told him that ‘the villagers informed us that the miscreants were shouting slogans like Pakistan zindabad [Long live Pakistan] through loudspeakers in Dalgaon and some other border areas,” according to a report in The Assam Tribune.

The Indian paper called on the government to give “stern punishment to those who hoisted Pakistani flags.”

The Indian Express reported the story in one paragraph: “Meanwhile, media persons saw a Pakistani flag in Sonaripara and Mohanpur villages and took photographs of them. Local television channels also ran footage of the flags. Officials and security forces denied any knowledge of the presence of the flags.

New Delhi is disturbed by this new trend where the Pakistani flag has emerged as a symbol of freedom in India.

Indian officials are still smarting from the shock of a unanimous rejection of India across Kashmir. For years the Kashmiris have been marking India’s national day on Aug. 15 as a Black Day. But this year, Kashmir witnessed a unanimous civil disobedience and massive street protests where Kashmiris joined in raising the Pakistani flag and chanting slogans rejecting their forced inclusion in the Indian state.

The massive protests shocked the Indian media and ordinary Indians who for years were shielded by New Delhi authorities from ground realities in Kashmir and were fed an official version that almost the entire free Indian media adhered to without asking questions. The size and the impressive unanimity of Kashmiri protests this year helped break Indian official media blackout and provided the Indian people a chance to see for their own what their governments have been hiding for decades now, where the Kashmir dispute was often peddled as a Pakistani creation and not the result of indigenous Kashmiri demands.

This story should come as surprising news to a vocal minority in Pakistani media that continues to hold an inferiority complex concerning the Indian government. This Pakistani minority is used to exaggerating Pakistani flaws and glorifying India and presenting it as a country devoid of any flaws [Editor’s note: This is called ‘Bollywood Effect’. This minority needs to break the spell and improve its taste by watching some quality movies from Hollywood and elsewhere.]

This is a good opportunity for Pakistani media organizations and spy agencies to project the freedom movements inside various Indian states that want independence from Indian rule. Pakistanis recall how the Indian government broke international law and issued a statement supporting its own trained and funded terrorists in Pakistani Balochistan in 2006. This is why it has become imperative to pay the New Delhi establishment in the same coin. Assam and the rest of the twelve or so Indian states that are fighting for independence are a good place to start.

Pakistani Official to U.S.: Talk to Taliban’s Mullah Omar

Filed under: Uncategorized — aurangzebawan @ 7:23 am

Karzai an ‘obstacle’ to peace


U.S apologists and poodles inside Pakistan are trying to convince Pakistanis to unnecessarily ‘own’ America’s blunders in the region as Pakistan’s own.  Not Owais Ghani, the governor of NWFP.   Terrorism inside Pakistan is partially linked to foul play on the Afghan side of the border, and partially to misguided local Pakistani extremists who, again, are influenced from across the border. The real issue is Washington’s failure to bring peace to Afghanistan despite seven years of occupation. Mr. Ghani comes out to tell the truth: The U.S. must broker a power-sharing agreement with the head of the Afghan Taliban, Mullah Omar, in order to establish peace in the region. Mr. Ghani’s also said that Hamid Karzai represents no one but himself and is dependent on a foreign power and that he is an obstacle to bringing peace to Afghanistan. When asked about allegations that Pakistan has used the Taliban to retain its influence in Afghanistan, Mr. Ghani replied: “We could counter that by saying India uses the Northern Alliance.” Mr. Ghani’s landmark proposal came in an interview published by London’s Daily Telegraph. Here are excerpts.



PESHAWAR, Pakistan—Owais Ghani, who governs the North West Frontier Province and its adjoining tribal areas, is the most prominent figure to date to publicly advocate holding talks with militant commanders leading the insurgency against coalition forces in Afghanistan.


“They have to talk to Mullah Omar, certainly – not maybe, and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar and the Haqqani group,” Mr Ghani told The Daily Telegraph in an interview in Peshawar.


“The solution, the bottom line, is that political stability will only come to Afghanistan when all political power groups, irrespective of the length of their beard, are given their just due share in the political dispensation in Afghanistan.”


The governor’s remarks are likely to cause controversy among Pakistan’s allies in the U.S.-led “war on terror” and at home where the ruling Pakistan’s People’s Party is opposed to the Taliban.


Mullah Omar went into hiding during the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. British intelligence believes that he has his headquarters in Quetta in southwestern Pakistan. But there is no evidence to suggest he is anywhere in Pakistan.


In 2006, Mr. Musharraf acknowledged that some retired Pakistani intelligence officials may still be involved in supporting their former Taliban protégés whom they worked with during the 1990s when Pakistan helped the movement sweep to power in Afghanistan.


[Seven years later, and with the fact that U.S. has empowered Pakistan’s traditional enemies in Afghanistan, including the Indians, it is only natural some officials in Islamabad begin to review their blind support to the U.S. occupation next door-Editor.]


Jalaluddin Haqqani is a veteran commander of the American-backed Afghan war against Soviet invasion in the 1970s and 1980s, and developed links with Osama bin Laden during that period.


Haqqani has had close links with the CIA and Pakistani intelligence agencies, notably the military Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).


The New York Times reported in July that the CIA had given the prime minister, Yousaf Raza Gilani, evidence of the ISI’s continued involvement with Haqqani, who is now leading militants against coalition forces in Afghanistan, along with evidence of ISI connections to a suicide bombing at the Indian embassy in Kabul that killed nearly 60 people on July 7.


[On 12 July, Islamabad retorted by giving U.S. military chief Adm. Mike Mullen and the deputy director of CIA who arrived for a brief visit evidence that Afghan soil was being used for exporting terrorism into Pakistan as part of deliberate effort to stoke ethnic and sectarian terrorism in the country-Editor.]


The Hezb-e-Islami, the Mujahideen faction of the former Afghan prime minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, was one of the groups which helped end the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan but has had links with Pakistan since 1978.


But in the civil war that followed in the early 1990s, his group clashed violently with other Mujahideen factions in the struggle for control of the Afghan capital, Kabul. The Hezb-e-Islami was blamed for much of the terrible death and destruction of that period, which led many ordinary Afghans to welcome the emergence of the Taliban.  Some of his party members are part of the Afghan parliament and he is said to have taken part in back-channel negotiations with the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai.


Mr. Ghani said that all three militant commanders were in Afghanistan.


“They are a power group that has to be preserved to seek political solutions. We would not destroy them because then you are contributing to further instability,” he said.  He denied that Pakistan “wants the Taliban back”.  He added: “No sir, we have no favorites in Afghanistan.”


Mr. Ghani said that West must accept that the “Mullah is a political reality”.


However he denied that Pakistan is supporting them by pointing out that it had handed over key Taliban ground commanders operating in Helmand province where British forces are based. [Not only that, but Islamabad needlessly humiliated and handed over to the Americans such Taliban officials as the former ambassador to Islamabad, Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, someone who has in the protection of the Pakistani State and had not taken part in any unlawful activity, as transpired later when the Americans released him prematurely from Guantanamo Bay detention facility-Editor].


Senior American commanders and policymakers are considering a shift in strategy in Afghanistan. The chairman of the U.S. joint chief of staffs, Admiral Mike Mullen, recently said that failure there was possible and “time was running out”.


Mr Ghani said: “You are headed for failure. I think Afghanistan is practically lost. It is compounding our problems.”


The governor added that the West must hold talks with the Taliban as al-Qaeda was regrouping from Iraq to Afghanistan. Russia had begun to supply weapons to militants and that the Afghans were intolerant of foreigners on their soil and so were staging “a national uprising”.


“To eliminate the Taliban you have to slaughter half the Afghan nation,” said Mr Ghani.


Members of a cross-border Afghan-Pakistani tribal council agreed last year to pursue talks with the Taliban. The initiative received initial encouragement from the Taliban but its leadership then set preconditions for the 50,000 U.S. and Nato troops to be withdrawn.


Washington rejects talks with the Taliban maintaining that America will not negotiate with “terrorists”.  Mr. Karzai and the United Nations have stipulated that a key condition for peace talks is that the Taliban must accept the constitution that was signed by Mr. Karzai in 2004.


It is doubtful that America’s allies in Afghanistan, the Northern Alliance, would accept such talks.


Mr. Ghani said that Mr. Karzai “does not represent any power group – tribal, religious or political and therefore like the people in his government he is dependant on foreign power. He is therefore an obstacle to dialogue and peace.”


He described Pakistan’s military strategy as one of containment. “We are not looking for quick fixes. We want to hold it to a level where we can just tolerate it until Afghanistan settles down,” said Mr. Ghani.


When asked about allegations that Pakistan has used the Taliban to retain its influence in Afghanistan, Mr. Ghani replied: “We could counter that by saying India uses the Northern Alliance.”

Pakistan Ditching China?

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 5:26 am

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—This is the first time that Pakistan does not have an ambassador in Beijing for several months now, which is an oddity. Washington and London were the first capitals where the Gilani government appointed ambassadors. That is supposedly understandable. The current government in Pakistan was possible only because of a political understanding – widely referred to in Islamabad as a ‘deal – which both capitals brokered with a weak and fading Mr. Musharraf.


But how China has slipped from the list of priorities of the Gilani government can be gauged from our expected participation this week in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit on Aug. 28. This is a Chinese and Russian dominated organization seen as a counterweight to U.S. influence in our region. In this first major foreign policy engagement for this government involving China, no senior politician from the Gilani administration will be representing Pakistan. Prime Minister Gilani has decided that, due to our pressing internal political situation, the advisor to the prime minister for national security – a former ambassador to Washington – will instead represent Islamabad. This will be the lowest Pakistani participation in SCO since its formation in 2001. It is true that Pakistan is still not a full member of the SCO. But Beijing is strongly advocating full membership for Islamabad and Moscow is more favorably inclined to go along than at any other time, putting aside Indian sensitivities.


Given how we are suffering from Washington’s destabilizing influence in our neighborhood, you would think we would have shown more enthusiasm for this week’s SCO summit. But this is not the case. What is interesting is that this attitude comes at the heel of several events in the past four months that have generated some concern among Pakistani Sinologists. This is a concern that has not turned to panic, not yet at least.


A couple of months ago, Dr. Shireen Mazari, a former head of a think tank funded by our Foreign Office, reported that our top diplomats received verbal ‘guidance’ from a well known Washington-based figure in the Gilani government to stop focusing too much on China and start a new policy of engagement with countries such as India and the United States.  This could be a personal opinion or a general policy observation, and all elected governments have the right to review policies. But in China’s case, we have accumulated several bad examples recently that the subject merits a special discussion.


In April, a fresh Prime Minister Gilani refused to attend the Olympic Torch Relay ceremony as the torch passed through Islamabad on the pretext that President Musharraf was also attending.


Considering how western members of the International Olympic Committee refused to include Pakistan in the torch route and how Beijing stuck to Islamabad, the Apr. 16 incident in the Pakistani capital was certainly a ghastly show of lopsided priorities.


And then on Aug. 8, Pakistan’s participation at the level of President in China’s most important event of the century was scuttled because of Pakistani politics. You can be certain that our Chinese friends were not very impressed when we sent to Beijing a prime minister widely seen as ‘remote-controlled’ – as opposed to a ‘puppet’ – along with the teenage chairman of the ruling party. It didn’t quite give the impression that we attached a lot of importance to an important event for China. Overall, it would be an understatement to say that this has not been a good year so far for Sino-Pakistani ties.


The principals of the Gilani government must excuse the skeptics when things like this happen. After all, the government has shown a lot of enthusiasm in focusing on ties with the United States. Washington was the first real foreign engagement for Prime Minister Gilani. You can discount the Saudi visit. That was limited to a one-point agenda: Cheap oil. Certainly the government has shown a lot of interest in hiring the services of an ‘American enthusiast’ to be our ambassador in Washington, followed by appointing the last serving ambassador there as the new national security advisor to the prime minister.


This is a government tinged with a heavy American dose. That is fine since this is an important relationship for Islamabad. But in the process, China should not be sidelined.

Zardari: A Presidential Cartoon?

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 3:36 am

KARACHI, Pakistan—The day Asif Zardari was supposed to make one speech, he ended up making three. Well, he only meant to make two, but he made three. This isn’t statecraft; it’s the blind leading the lame leading the deaf. The ‘second speech’ fiasco is being blamed on that political appointee at PTV, Shahid Masood. Here’s some advice for Zardari: fire him. And the others too.

I’m sure all the people working at PTV, the information ministry and in the president’s media team are nice people. I have no doubt they have families to support and unemployment in these tough economic times is nothing to sneeze at. But good, decent people can also be rubbish at their jobs. The media team surrounding Zardari has a simple task: make the president look presidential. Think Jinnah, not a Disney cartoon. The only reason Zardari got in front of a camera in the middle of the night was to reassure a frightened public that he has a steady hand at a time of crisis. His unsteady gaze and fumbling for words probably frightened the people a little more — this is the man in charge of our fate and security?

The main show — the speech before the constellation of Pakistani and foreign elite — was botched too. I sat, pen in hand, ready to learn about Zardari’s plan for saving us. By the end of it, I wasn’t the only one wondering who will save us from Zardari. Forget his halting, fumbling delivery and his poor English — that’s just red meat for the snickering patricians amongst us. It matters little in which language he speaks and how he chooses to phrase himself, if — if — he is saying the right things. But he didn’t.

Give him a break, the jiyalas cry. He’s learning on the job. Well, I’m sorry. Since when did supporting Team Democracy mean you have to support Team PPP? Especially if Team PPP is running the place into the ground? If Zardari isn’t ready for statesmanship, why must an orphaned country wait for him to grow into his job? He is only president because he wanted to be. And the same goes for the PPP co-chairmanship. It may rankle that the PPP is, in the memorable phrase of Tariq Ali, a “family heirloom”. But that’s our politics, so we can’t get stuck up over it. Now that Zardari has exercised his right to become leader though, it is our right to expect leadership from him.

Bizarrely, some in the news media have argued that Zardari’s speech in parliament was presidential and that if he had given detailed policies he would have been criticised for eviscerating parliament. Rubbish. The circularity of power at the top of the civilian government is lost on nobody. Zardari is the PPP co-chairman. Forget the de facto configuration of power, it is factually his government. Were he to give up the co-chairmanship and strip himself of the powers inimical to parliamentary democracy, it would make sense to make a show of separating the presidency from parliament. But he hasn’t. The country needed policy. Asif Zardari could have made everyone happy by simply prefacing every policy statement with, “My government has instructed me to say….” But we got nothing.

Zardari thundered that he wouldn’t let anyone violate our sovereignty. When Kayani said the same, the realists exchanged knowing glances. The general was pandering to the gallery — playing to a nationalist audience. It was red meat for the people, and the people loved it. The general was playing politics. It’s what Zardari should have done weeks ago.

But in politics what’s fresh yesterday is stale today. A week is a long time in politics. Parroting Kayani’s line 10 days after the general surprised the world was pitiful. It’s a bit silly to talk about inviolable sovereignty when missiles have been raining down on Waziristan for weeks, isn’t it? Tell us instead what you’re going to do about missiles — and terrorism. Especially when you’re about to fly off to the UN to hobnob with the world’s elite.

The Marriott carnage underlined the deadly seriousness of the terrorists. Some still don’t get it. A hack was on TV saying Pakistanis would rather eat onions than lose their self-respect, which American missiles are presumably devouring. This would no doubt be news to all those Pakistanis crying out about inflation. All this talk of our war or America’s war is beside the point. Zahid Hussain has said it best: it is an internal war. Like it or not, we have to fight it — because those fighting the Americans are killing us. And if we don’t kill the terrorists first, the Americans will kill the lot of us.

You want to win the war against the terrorists, defeat those who killed Benazir Bhutto and hundreds of Pakistanis, and rein in our shadowy agencies? Win over the people. All this talk of not violating our sovereignty and being our war is only violating our eardrums. Tell Pakistanis who we are fighting in Bajaur and why. Explain who the terrorists in Waziristan are. Unmask the sectarian hate-mongers in Khyber and Kurram. Use graphs and videos and numbers and pictures to expose the ugliness and hate that is spreading amongst us. The shadowy elements in the state apparatus will strike back. But they are no longer the real terror — the terrorists they have long since lost control of are.

And squeeze the Americans for more aid. The Americans have given us a few hundred million to upgrade our F-16s. With great fanfare, they have also given us 11,000 tons of wheat. Some perspective: our annual wheat requirement is 23 million tons; we are importing two and a half million tons. This is a joke. Get something meaningful from the US. Bring the country money. Bring it fuel. Bring it a plan. Help the poor. Do something. Anything. Husain Haqqani and Mahmud Durrani owe their jobs to the fact that the Americans trust them — but what use is that trust if it earns us nothing? ‘Us’ being regular Pakistanis, not the PPP elite or the establishment.

By now Zardari’s plan has revealed itself and it is wretchedly familiar: the consolidation of power. The trenches are being dug in Punjab rather than Waziristan. If someone dares, he should whisper into Zardari’s ear: what’s the point of consolidating power if you’ll end up presiding over the burned-out shell of a country?

Please leave Pakistan alone

Filed under: Uncategorized — aurangzebawan @ 11:25 am

The ‘Kid’ In Kabul

Amrullah Saleh, the thirty-six-year-old director of Karzai’s spy agency, known as NDS, became the world’s youngest intelligence chief in 2004, at age 32. Since 2005, NDS has emerged as a major source of strategic instability in the region.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—He is young, bold, and methodical, often delivering his arguments in bullet-form even in an informal chat. According to one account, he went from earning $400 a month working for an NGO in Pakistan to making $6,000 working as a liaison officer for CIA with Northern Alliance. This is not the official version of course. His American patrons describe this assignment in a less dramatic way as “an informal ambassador and coordinator of non-governmental organizations with Afghanistan’s Northern Alliance.” This is how U.S. Congressman Mike Rogers introduced him during a reception three years ago.

This is Amrullah Saleh, the thirty-six-year-old director of Karzai’s spy agency, known as NDS, who probably became the world’s youngest intelligence chief in 2004, at age 32.

Mr. Saleh is also a central figure in the undeclared, low-intensity war against Pakistan, although he is more of a good executioner than an original thinker. Since 2005, NDS has emerged as a major source of strategic instability in the region. Armed with what appears to be an American nod that goes as far back as 2002, and with direct help from fourteen Indian intelligence outposts on Afghan soil, the NDS has facilitated the launch of a covert operation that has successfully created multiple insurgencies across Pakistan’s western belt – from Gwadar to swat – in less than three years.

Pakistan stands accused of attacks in both Afghanistan and India. The Americans have gone as far as blaming Pakistan, in advance, for all future attacks against United States. In fact, in a calculated leak, The New York Times on Sept. 11 accused Pakistani army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani of complicity in the July 7 bombing of the Indian embassy in Kabul, something that even the Indians didn’t dare do. And on Sept. 7, President Bush delivered a speech at the National Defense University in Washington where he almost called Pakistan a terrorist state.

The ground reality, however, is a little different. The frequency and intensity of attacks inside Pakistan over the past two years have exceeded the number of attacks the U.S. military faces in Afghanistan. This is strange because if the U.S. accusations that Islamabad is behind Afghan Taliban’s resurgence in Afghanistan are correct, then why is the ‘Pakistani Taliban’ attacking the Pakistani State and people? The so-called ‘Pakistani Taliban’ should be happy that Pakistan is supporting the Afghan Taliban? But what is happening is the opposite. It is more like the ‘Pakistani Taliban’ is punishing Pakistan. The question is: Who benefits?

According to one Pakistani official source, close to 8,000 foreigners have infiltrated Pakistani territories over the past two to three years. The figure was under 1,000 before 9/11, and most of them were peaceful leftovers from the anti-Soviet war in the 1980s, grownup, aging, with local wives and children. Yes, Pakistan did have a domestic religious extremism problem but it consisted of small groups and not armies with endless supply of money and sophisticated weapons and, apparently, advance knowledge of Pakistani military movements.

There is a pile of evidence with Pakistani security officials that leaves no doubt that many of these 8,000 foreigners are operatives of foreign intelligence agencies who have infiltrated the Pakistani tribal belt from Afghanistan. This is not a Hollywood script. During the 2001 war against the Taliban government in Kabul, U.S. military used special ops teams made up of Pashtun look-alikes complete with perfect Pashtun accents, assisted by bought local help in the areas of their deployment.

In Pakistani tribal belt, the numbers of foreigners dramatically increased in the years 2002 to 2004. These foreigners used the natural local anger at Pakistan’s alliance with U.S. to work up the locals against Islamabad. The area remained quiet for most of the time after the 2001 war until it finally erupted in insurgency led by a series of shady ‘rebel Mullahs’ who caught the Pakistani government and military by surprise.

Karzai’s security and intelligence network is populated with viciously anti-Pakistan officers. Under U.S. patronage, the Indians are suspected of having raised the strength of their soldiers in Afghanistan to around ten thousand, mostly under the guise of security for Indian construction projects. Indians and Karzai’s men are directly involved in training, arming and financing rebels and insurgents and sending them into Pakistan. There is a full backing for an ethnic insurgency in southwestern Pakistan where China is building a strategic seaport.

Pakistanis don’t have evidence that shows direct U.S. involvement in this anti-Pakistan campaign. But the circumstantial evidence is more than overwhelming. Afghanistan could not have turned into a staging ground for anti-Pakistan covert operations involving several players without Washington’s nod. U.S. military has also been deliberately attacking those militant tribals inside Pakistan who are pro-Islamabad and sparing those who exclusively fight Pakistani military. Also, U.S. government has refused to designate the ethnic insurgency in southwestern Pakistan as terrorism. One very interesting piece of information that points the fingers to both India and U.S. is that these shady ‘Pakistani Taliban’ have focused their efforts in the past four years on attacking Chinese citizens and Chinese interests inside Pakistan. No U.S. or NATO citizens have ever been attacked.

The Afghan Taliban –who are the real Taliban before this foreign-orchestrated insurgency in Pakistani border areas hijacked the word ‘Taliban’ – have never attacked Pakistan despite Islamabad’s policy change after 9/11. In fact, senior Taliban officials, like its ambassador to Islamabad Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, never said anything against Pakistan despite having been captured and handed over to the Americans by Islamabad.

The only way out for Islamabad now is to leave the U.S.-led coalition that occupied Afghanistan in 2001.

Pakistan will continue to face instability as long as it continues to be part of the war on terror on Washington’s terms. Pakistan’s legitimate security interests have been so damaged and ignored by Washington that it is time to tell the Americans to go and deal with Afghanistan on their own. Pakistan can say that it will help Washington where possible but that it can no longer remain part of the coalition, a coalition that only includes three nations now: U.S., U.K., and Pakistan. In this regard, Pakistanis can renegotiate the terms of letting U.S. use Pakistani soil and airspace for the transport of supplies. Pakistan can ask U.S. military to vacate the remaining Pakistani airbase under American use. Also, Islamabad can revoke the permission that former President Musharraf granted CIA to establish outposts in Pakistan’s tribal belt and the permission to recruit local assets. Meanwhile, Pakistan can continue eliminating the shady foreign and local criminals who call themselves ‘Pakistani Taliban’. This is what the Pakistani military has been doing recently, wiping off all these foreign assets. Which probably explains some of the recent American panic?

‘Insurgency,’ Mr. Saleh, the Afghan spymaster, told American journalists in 2006, ‘is like grass. Two ways to destroy it: You cut the upper part, and after four months, you have it back. You poison the soil where that grass is, and then you eliminate it forever.’

What Mr. Saleh got wrong is the soil. It is not Pakistan. The Afghan insurgency is sustained by Afghans. It is an Afghan problem.

Please leave Pakistan alone.

Life threat: A new weapon to silence US critics

Filed under: News of the Day — aurangzebawan @ 3:53 pm

By: Ahmed Quraishi
Published: November 13, 2009

ISLAMABAD – A rumpus is brewing in a small corner of the Pakistani media over the safety of a New Delhi-based American journalist. Being a US citizen has its benefits and Mr. Mathew Rosenberg is lucky to have a few coming to his defence in Pakistan. A couple of months ago a Pakistani journalist’s life came under threat in Swat. He escaped to Washington where he was humiliated on landing, kept in detention for two weeks and is entangled now in a legal mess. Mr. Rosenberg’s self-appointed defenders in the Pakistani media silently watched that story without uttering a word, let alone writing editorials. Another reporter, Fawad Shah, had to leave Peshawar after he broke the Blackwater story and got threats from US personnel. he escaped to Iran and then into Armenia but had to return eventually and finally chose to go public rather than simply lying low in fear. We saw no one from the US media or Pakistani media, barring the story in TheNation, take up Fawad’s case. Obviously, there are benefits to defending a US citizen as compared to a Pakistani one. Who will reward you for defending Pakistan, right? Mr. Rosenberg works for Wall Street Journal’s India bureau, but has been spending time in our tribal belt for the past few months. Interestingly, the US media, which has been treating Pakistan as the enemy for the past five years, prefers to cover Islamabad from New Delhi. Tells you something about the mindset. TheNation’s Mr. Kaswar Klasra published a story on Nov. 5 revealing that, “Agents of notorious spy agencies are using journalistic cover to engage themselves in intelligence activities in NWFP and FATA.” Mr. Rosenberg’s name appeared in the story. To be fair, Mr. Klasra telephoned Mr. Rosenberg in New Delhi as part of his research and gave him space in his story to defend himself, including quoting him say, “Let me tell you that I am not working on any hidden agenda.” Fair enough, right? Not for the small and loosely knit group of pro-US commentators who have become vocal in Pakistan over the past few months with the rise in US meddling in our affairs. This group includes a few academic types, commentators and those who are paid for providing ‘consultancy’ on how to spend US aid in Pakistan. This group is now raising alarm over Mr. Klasra’s report, accusing his newspaper of ‘endangering the life’ of a US citizen, who is back in the Indian capital anyway. This has become the weapon of choice to intimidate anyone who criticizes US policies and wrongs in Pakistan. Do this and you are instantly accused of ‘endangering the lives of US citizens’ in the country. I first heard this line when I reported earlier this year how a US diplomat used a house in Islamabad to arrange a private meeting between an Indian diplomat and several senior Pakistani bureaucrats. To my surprise, a Pakistani journalist telephoned me on behalf of the US diplomat to say my reporting endangered the diplomat’s life. The foreign office later issued a statement warning government servants to refrain from attending such meetings without prior permission. [In October, the Foreign Office had written to all embassies and high commissions banning any direct meetings between foreign diplomats and Pakistani ministers without prior clearance from the Foreign Office. The move came after frequent direct meetings between US and British diplomats with two senior federal government ministers.] Those springing to Mr. Rosenberg’s defence never protested when, in September, Ambassador Anne W. Patterson used this very line [“Endangering American lives”] in a private letter to a Pakistani newspaper targeting one of the paper’s long time critics of US government policies. The ambassador’s argument was accepted without any corroborating evidence or public scrutiny. The same line is now being used in Mr. Rosenberg’s case to discredit what is a legitimate story from the Pakistani perspective. To generate guilt, Mr. Rosenberg’s few Pakistani defenders are comparing him to Mr. Daniel Pearl, Wall Street Journal reporter also based in India who flayed personal security guidelines and exposed himself to dangerous terrorists in Pakistan in the inflamed aftermath of the war against al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. That gory incident was highly condemnable and unfortunate, but is in no way comparable to Mr. Rosenberg’s case as the few Pakistani guilt-inducers are trying to insinuate. Surely Mr. Rosenberg and his Pakistani defenders understand that Pakistan is not only battling terrorists in the border area with Afghanistan but also organised terror supported by foreign powers from the Afghan soil. Both the Interior Minister and the military spokesperson have publicly confirmed this. Many analysts in the Pakistani strategic community have compiled stacks of hard and circumstantial evidence that does not – to put it diplomatically – absolve the United States of responsibility over the anti-Pakistan terrorism emanating from US-controlled Afghanistan. Domestically, we have had several incidents involving US and other foreign citizens in unusual activities: 1. A US researcher, Nicholas Schmiddle, who came to Pakistan in 2006 to conduct research, ended up being deported from the country in January 2008 by Pakistani security officials after he was found travelling to sensitive parts of the country without permission and in violation of his stated purpose on his visa application. [Why lie if you are a journalist?] 2. In 2003, two French journalists and one Pakistani journalist traveled to Balochistan and hired local people to produce a fake Afghan Taliban training video. They were arrested en route to Karachi, where the French planned to take a flight back home to break the news on Pakistan’s alleged duplicity in the so-called war on terror. 3. A British journalist, Christina Lamb, was arrested and deported in November 2001 as she tried to a book a Quetta-Islamabad flight in the name of Osama bin Laden, another ‘breaking news’ that was aborted in time by Pakistani authorities. 4. In at least three incidents, US special operations agents have been arrested by Pakistani police. The agents were dressed as Afghan Taliban with beards and the Afghan headgear. In at least one of those incidents, Us agents were riding a car with fake Pakistani number plates. In two of those incidents, these US agents entered Islamabad coming from the tribal belt. They were released in all three cases on the orders of the Interior Ministry despite carrying illegal weapons. 5. In July 2009, a group of Americans, carrying diplomatic passports, were arrested in the vicinity of the Khan Research Laboratories in Kahuta. They could not explain what they were doing there and said they lost their way. They were released without pressing charges. Internationally, just this year there have been four incidents where US journalists were accused of spying: 1. American-Iranian Roxana Saberi was arrested in Tehran in possession of confidential documents that belonged to a national security department in the Iranian government. She was released only when Washington offered diplomatic concessions that were not made public, according to the Iranian media. 2. Two US journalists illegally entered North Korea. Washington called it abduction but media reports proved later that the two crossed the border illegally despite warnings from a South Korean translator. 3. In a case that remains unexplained until now, a US citizen mysteriously swam his way to the house of a US-backed opposition leader in Myanmar, where he remains in detention pending negotiations with Washington. 4. Three American ‘hikers’ entered Iran illegally this year. One of them turned out to be a US journalist who speaks local languages. He said he was on a private hiking trip. None of the above might be a spy, although the evidence in Ms. Saberi’s case was damning and irrefutable. But it is interesting how frequently US journalists find themselves in situations where they are accused of spying, and four cases just in this year. An editorial writer in one of the Pakistani newspapers tried yesterday to offer a lesson in correct reporting and mentioned how the editor of the Wall Street Journal felt ‘disgusted’ over the report on Mr. Rosenberg. Ironically, where was the Pakistani editorial writer’s disgust at the New York Times when it practically accused a senior investigative journalist from the same Pakistani paper of being a Taliban simply because he had argued with a US official in Islamabad? How about also writing something about the endless stream of ‘falsehoods’ and deliberate misreporting over Pakistan’s nuclear programme that the US media has excelled in over the past five years? No one has demonised Pakistan during that period like the US media did, and most of it based on unnamed and unverifiable sources. Is that irresponsible too or do those standards only apply on us where many here submit without raising as much as a whimper? Pakistan is in a state of war, one that has been gradually imposed on this country in the short span of four years. Instead of siding with outsiders and exposing their inferiority complexes, some of our commentators would do well to advise US media representatives to move to Islamabad instead of reporting on Pakistan from New Delhi. That might help the US media reduce some of its hostility toward Pakistan.

Pakhtoons in Pakistan Blame U.S. Blackwater For Deadly Blast

Filed under: News of the Day,Politics — aurangzebawan @ 5:12 am

SLAMABAD, Pakistan, 29 October 2009 (Xinhua) – Chief of Pakistani-Pashtun Movement in Pakistan Hakimullah Mehsud has blamed the controversial American private firm Blackwater [Xe Services] for the bomb blast in Peshawar which killed over 117 [Pakistani] people, local news agency NNI reported Thursday.

The bomb, exploded at a crowded market at Chowk Yadgar [in Peshawar, Pakistan] on Wednesday [28 October 2009], also injured more than 250 [Pakistani] people.

Hakimullah Mehsud told media that if Pakistani-Pashtuns can carry out attacks in Islamabad and target Pakistan Army’s headquarters, then why they should target general public.

He claimed that American security agency Blackwater [Xe Services] and Pakistani agencies are involved in attacks in public places to [maliciously] blame the militants.

When asked that the people also think that the militants are involved in such attacks, the Pakistani-Pashtun leader was quoted as saying: “Our war is against the [PPP-ANP-MQM-JUIF corrupt and tyrannical] government and the security forces [of Pakistan] and not against the [Pakistani] people. We are not involved in blasts.”

Azam Tariq, the Pakistani-Pashtun spokesman, who was accompanying Hakimullah [Mehsud], warned that those [corrupt] media organizations [Geo News TV, ARY News TV, Dawn News TV, Dunya News TV, Samaa TV, Express News TV, Aaj TV, Business Plus TV, Channel 5 TV, Indus News TV, News One TV, PTV,  Radio Pakistan, and other corrupt mercenary media of Pakistan] could be targeted which are [illegally and maliciously] defaming Pakistani-Pakhtoons.

Information Minister of Northwest Frontier Province [NWFP] Iftikhar Hussain and the Pakistan Army spokesman Major-General Athar Abbas had [falsely, fraudulently and maliciously] blamed militants [without any legal evidence or prosecutable proof] for the Peshawar blast, [wrongly] saying that the militants are facing defeat in South Waziristan tribal region and are now targeting the people.

Pakistan Car Bomb Toll Passes 100LONDON, UK, 29 October 2009 (BBC) –  he head of the Pakistani-Pakhtoon Movement has denied responsibility for the [U.S. drone-missile or bomb] attack [of 28 October 2009 in Peshawar, Pakistan].

Hakimullah Mehsud told the BBC that the latest attack was orchestrated by the Americans and Pakistani intelligence agencies “to malign the name of the Pakistani-Pakhtoons”.

“If we are able to attack sensitive installations… as well as the [Pakistan Army] General Headquarters [GHQ], then why would we need to attack ordinary people?” he asked in brief telephone interview.

“Our war is only against the [corrupt and tyrannical PPP-ANP-MQM-JUIF] government and the security forces [of Pakistan]. The common people are not part of it”, he replied.

The BBC’s Syed Shoaib Hasan in Islamabad [Pakistan] says that Mr. [Hakimullah] Mehsud’s denial of Pakistani-Pashtuns’ involvement is likely to be met with much scepticism, even though an increasing number of people do not rule out the involvement of U.S. security agencies in attacks in the country.

Yes you can change, Yes I can change, Yes we can change

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 5:51 am

This article  contains the  thoughts of a common man in Pakistan elaborated by, Muhammad Arshad who is also a very well known writer and a very Kind, gentle and loving person.

First we must recognize our enemy:  As ordained  by the Almighty, “Yahood-o-Nasara kabhi tumharey dost nahi ho saktey ”  (Al-Quran) and “Yahood-o-Nasara ko dost nah banao, woh aik dosray kay dost hain aur jis nain un ko dost banaya, woh un main say ho gaya” (Al-Quran).  I never want to be a part of  those who are killing my own Muslim brethren, even if they are right now on the wrong path but they are forced to do that because of our so called “Mohib-e-Watan Democratic Rulers  and the Army”. Yes, there should be no compromise on the unity of Pakistan but on what price? War Against Terror?  First of all the terror has bever been defined by fraternity of nations i.e. the United  Nations. The Jihadis of the yesterday, when they were waging a heroic struggle against USSR, have become terrorists of today just because today they are struggling to evict the master of the Pakistan Politician, civil and military bureacy from Afghanistan and also from Pakistan. Is the war on terror our war?  No!  Never! Now here arises. What we have  gained or lost by siding with the War on Terror? The single and sole commodity the Pakistanis had in abundance by virtue of Islam, was the unity and we have lost   the same. The example of USSR is before us. Stockpiles of weaponry, either conventional or strategic, could not guarantee its survival and ultimately the USSR dismembered.  Pakistan is a no match even to nuclear minnows. Huh this war was  neither our war even yesterday nor today and nor will be tomorrow. So please don’t promote the product which has never been ours.

On the other hand, about joining the hands together for brighter Pakistan, yes I am with every one wants to do so but I have a few  reservations. One is, when there was a movement for restoration of  the Chief Justice, the whole nation was on its toes but when the innocent kinds were being slaughtered in Lal Masja, Jamia Hafsa, Madarassahs of NWFP and the Pathans in their own homes, their homes supposed to be the place of peace, by the American Drones being operated and controlled from our own territory, no one came and comes out on the roads. Why? Are the masses of Pakistan have become impotent. If they can come on the roads to save the Chief Justice of Pakistan, they also cauld  come on the roads to save the innocent kids  who were butchered just for demanding Islam, the very basis and the ideology behind the creation of Pakistan. So we ourselves have rendered the ideology of Pakistan null and void. Realistically speaking, we the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent have very unluckily been deceived by our Quaids, who had nothing to do with Islam, but were actually seculars at the core of their hearts and fully westernized. It was a very clumsy stroke of bad luck that the creation of Pakistan took place at the hands of seculars – the infidels – since there is no concept of secularism in Islam. If the creation of Pakistan had taken place at the hands of the Servants of God, it would have been in a very different condition – certainly very splendid. 60 years have passed and we are still in doubt, whether this country was created as a secular entity or a laboratory for Islam.   So we are like a  wayfarer who has no idea of his destination that where he has to go. A great  desert of uncertainty is sprawling in front of him and he is certainly doomed to perish in the vastness of this desert. Le1  us recall the days when the movement for Pakistan was on and the single and sole slogan being chanted by the Muslim masses of the Indian sub-continent was “Pakistan ka matalab kaya, La Illah Il Alla”. The destination was crystal clear. They wanted a country which could become a laboratory of Islam and the Muslims could lead a life according to the precepts of Islam. But what has happened to their dreams?  All have been shattered. Is there any way out.  Yes! Certainly! Shun the war on terror and also the America. Just impose the Islam in its true letter and spirit and pull away the ground under the feet of so called terrorists. Just imagine, what would be left with them to wage a war against Pakistan.

These things will never change as long as the US army is in occupation of our neighboring country, on our border, meddling in our affairs, our politicians, military and civil bureaucracy taking exotic dictation and remains servile to their personal and alien interests. Whatever administrative measures, either erection of walls around the government installations or their fortification, nothing is going to pay off and you will have to talk to them and sort the matter as it should be. Otherwise, in the nut shell, presently, Pakistan is like a rudderless ship that has spun out of control and ultimately doomed.

“Yes you can change, Yes I can change, Yes we can change”

How is the question?

My Answer is:

  1. Say “Yes to Allah” Follow the Quran in its true letter and spirit but  not as elaborated by some illiterate Mullahs.
  2. Believe “This war is against our Way of Living which is Islam, and they are terrified from it (some of us also fall in this category).
  3. Say “NO MORE” to US.
  4. Dispose off your duties honestly and believe that  it is  for your Pakistan and do not waste your valuable time”
  5. Always help others without demanding any remuneration.
  6. Love tyour youngers and respect your elders.
  7. Be a Proud Pakistani (always expect  for good, do not dishearten by bad news)
  8. Put a heroic struggle in every sphere of life  for Pakistan without thinking “What I can do”. Just do  always whatever you can.
  9. Think for future generations too but not only  for yourself.

Idrees Azad: masjid main uthak baithak karnay ka nam islam nahin (hazrat umar)

khanzadajee: Magar LA ILAHA ILLALAH shirt-e-awal hai ke nahi?

Idrees Azad: La ilaha illallah bay shak shart e awal hay magar arbi main parhna zaroori nahin agarcheh behtar hay. aur bahut behtar hay keh arbi main parha jai. ab agar aik jazeera hawai ka banda salamti ka qail hay to wo la ila illaha apni zabanmain keh rha hay

Idrees Azad: ham par arab ki tehzeeb laagoo ki jaanay ki koshish ghalat hay. islam ksi ilaqay ki tehzeeb ko nahin khatam karta

Idrees Azad: ham aaj jis islam ko maantay hain yeh musalman faatiheen ki waja say hamain mila

Idrees Azad: agar ham huzoor kay mizaj shanas hain to ham rahmatul lil aalameen kay naqsh e qadam par chalain gay

Idrees Azad: aur rahmat ka matlab to ap ko ata hoga

Idrees Azad: quran nay huzoor ko aalameen k liay rahmat kaha hay

Idrees Azad: salamti aur rahmat kay ilawa islam nay kabi koi bat nain ki

Idrees Azad: einstine musalman tha kiunkeh wo naik b tha aur aik khuda ka qail b tha

Idrees Azad: isi tarah laakhon log aur b hain

Idrees Azad: ham nay apni alag dukan kiun bana rakhi hay?

Idrees Azad: kia ham yahood kay naqsh e qadam par chaltay hain

khanzadajee: Dukan tu nasamjhi ki alamat hai

khanzadajee: warna islam tu itna nahi jitna hum paish kartey hai

khanzadajee: or duniya ko karobar banya howa hai, halankey jab Allah ke ahkam or Nabi ke tareqey Toot rahey ho tu musalman per duniya ka karobar karna haram hai

khanzadajee: Kia yeh fatwa theek hai?

Change Your Thinking

Filed under: Re-think — aurangzebawan @ 2:19 pm

After a long time of holidays I am back and I was looking to start but I was not sure from where I start. Suddenly I got an email from my one best Freind Mr. Muhammad Saleem Abbasi. After reading his email I got my the point to start. So I am going to start again with sharing this email. Just read what was in the email:….

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.


Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.  He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy. ‘Today is a gift that is why it is called The Present.

Time to listen to saner Voices

Filed under: Politics — aurangzebawan @ 6:19 pm

By Imran Khan

 The issue of militancy and the Taliban continues to be framed erroneously — most recently as a variant of the “with us or against us” choice: either one supports the military operation in Swat and Fata or one is supportive of the Taliban. Just as the Bush choice has been largely responsible for the chaos and radicalisation in the Muslim world, so the Pakistani variant doing the rounds currently misses the real issue. After all, there is and always has been a consensus in Pakistan that militant extremism should be crushed and the writ of the state and government established. The disagreement is over how to go about achieving this objective. Should there be an attempt to go to the root causes of militancy and then to resolve the issue through a multi-pronged strategy including dialogue backed by state power as well as policies to bring in the marginalised population by giving them a viable stake in the system? Or does the solution lie in simply unleashing indiscriminate military force to establish the writ of the state while the roots of the problem continue to fester? Having just returned from a visit to the US organised by the Pakistani community to raise money for Shaukat Khanum Hospital, as a result of meetings arranged by the community I had the opportunity to meet with Senator John Kerry and Congressman Gary Ackerman, both influential players in the context of our region. I was surprised to find both quite open to rethinking their present Afghan strategy. In fact, they have realised that the continuation of the military-centric Bush approach has failed and new options must be examined. There is, therefore, a need to engage with those in the US seeking more viable alternatives for this region as well as with members of the Obama administration. A meaningful engagement can be done through sending a delegation of experts who understand the tribal areas and Afghanistan – not simply the self-anointed “experts” — referred to by one analyst as “native Pakistani informer(s) — who speak what the traditionalists in the US want to hear. I am convinced that a powerful presentation can be made about the need for a US exit strategy from Afghanistan and I believe the Obama Administration can be made to see the following points: * It is costing the $60 billion a year and costs will go up with the surge – and with no guarantee of a turnaround. Simply sending more troops into a multidimensional conflict will not turn the tide in one’s favour. * The longer this war goes on, the more chances of a radical takeover in Afghanistan and the greater the threat of radicalisation amongst the Muslim youth. These youth, especially in the Western countries, pose a greater danger to these countries including the US than al-Qaeda. * The situation in Afghanistan has been moving in favour of the Taliban and deteriorating for Nato and US forces since the past few years. The question is why our government does not realise that there has to be a new strategy as the current one is sheer madness? The answer is that there are those in our leadership who are quite willing to go along with the current policy of spilling Pakistani blood — both of the soldiers, civilians and militants — as long as they can get dollars and US support. Even more crucial, all the issues of bad governance and corruption (400% rise in 3 years) are papered over as the leadership hides its incompetence under the counter terrorism banner. Like their predecessors, they also know that if things go out of control in Pakistan, they can always take off to western capitals where their wealth and properties await them. Beginning from zero militant Taliban in 2004 before the Waziristan operation, today there are around 30 Taliban groups (according to the presentation given by the army to the Parliamentarians). No one has any idea who is backing which group; what percentage are fighting because of Pushtun solidarity; how many belong to the old jehadi groups created at the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan; how many are actually criminals and unemployed; how many are paid by the enemies of Pakistan to destabilise the country; and so on. In other words, there is an odd amalgam of militants and criminal elements seeking to destabilise the Pakistani state. How can military operations be supported when our soldiers die in vain, when each operation produces more militancy as well as increasing the suffering of the local civilian population? While the government correctly claims that drone attacks are counter productive and produce more militancy, would the Pakistan military’s aerial bombardment with its indiscriminate “collateral damage” also not have the same effect? Herein lies a basic contradiction in the government’s policy. Those who are suffering the most are the people of the tribal areas and Swat – with over three million people displaced, their homes, livelihood and children’s education destroyed. What about the forgotten Bajaur operation earlier this year when 500,000 civilians were displaced and our soldiers suffered many casualties. Today, the Taliban control the same areas that the army had removed them from earlier. The most disconcerting aspect of the present military action is that no one is interested to know what needs to happen for us for “victory” to be declared. As happened in the fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan, this “war” could go on endlessly and spread across the country. After all, a brief look at the history of the tribal areas reveals how the British were embroiled in an unwinnable war for 80 years and before them the tribals confronted the Moghuls for 69 years. Can Pakistan afford these operations for even the next five years? How will we deal with the continuing flow of displaced people – or how long will the IDPs survive living as nomads in their own country? How are we planning to stop the radicalisation of the youth in such conditions? Where will we find the resources to eventually rehabilitate these displaced families, given the massive infrastructure damage? What about the impact on the economy if these operations continue endlessly? Already the political situation in the NWFP is getting worse by the day. We have created perfect environment for our enemies to exploit tensions emerging from the current chaos- ethnic, provincial, religious (shia/sunni, deobandi/barelevi) and class (as in Swat). The critical question is: what is the solution? In Swat, despite being a severe critic of the timing and nature of the military operation, now that it is in full swing, it has to go on till the writ of the government is established. Otherwise there will be even more anarchy as all existing infrastructure has been destroyed. But there is still a need for a more targeted focus of the military operation and a gearing up of the civil administration including the police and local judiciary. The solution lies in pulling our troops out of Fata gradually and simultaneously reviving the tribal structure. But this means not only withstanding political pressure from Washington but also doing without US dollars – both of these seem beyond the capability of the current dollar-addicted leadership! However there are voices within the US political and administrative structures that are becoming more sceptical about the US policy in Afghanistan. For instance, Graham Fuller, the former CIA station chief in Kabul wrote in the International Herald Tribune that there was no military solution to the problem in Afghanistan. According to him, Pakistan was “cracking under the pressure” put on it to “do more” by the US and that the Pakistan security forces could control the militancy within its borders provided Nato leaves Afghanistan. If sane voices in the US can see the writing on the wall, why is our leadership still going down a suicidal course for their own vested interests – destroying the military and the nation in the process?


Story of a Fighter

Filed under: Fighter's whom I know — aurangzebawan @ 8:52 am

It’s a story of Mr. Qalandar Khan Resident of a little village Miandad Corona, near Risalpur NWFP who is one of my dear one whom I push always, even I feel some time guilty for doing nothing for him but as I mentioned above I am keep pushing him towards hope for good. He is now a student of Alama Iqbal Open University and doing his graduation along with I am trying to push him in the Bloggers world where he can write down his daily experience, and feel a fresh air after expressing his impressions.

Story Starts from Here… 

This is the dark age of competition. Every one is looking forward and never looks behind such as Lucy gray. This poem is written by willium wordsworth.

 Lets to read a stanza of this poem in which I shall discuss the word “behind”

 “Yet some maintain that to this day she is a living child

That you may see that Lucy gray upon the lone some wind

Over rough and smooth she trips along and never looks behind.”

So I was talking about the word behind. In this Dark Age we have totally forgotten our past and we never look behind.

          I am also one of them. I neither read the past nor write about the past. I am also a competitor and compete every one in every walk of life. During this competition I become THREE IN ONE.

Lets to explain what is THREE IN ONE.

For the first time in my life I join a Chinese company CLJV {Crescent Lioning Joint venture} as a security guard and I started my job with less salary of Rs 1800.

          It is not enough for me but I continue my job. In our company there were great mechanics for auto workshop there was a big store in which you will find every kind of spare parts for vehicles. There were three power electricians. When the power failed they operate the generator. They became my friend because their office was beside to our office. So I decided to learn the magic methods of electrician. So I said to them that I want to become an electrician. They accepted my request and I began hard work to become an electrician. At last I become a power electrician.

          During this stage I got admission in the FCC (Frontier Computer College) and successfully completed my one year diploma in computer programming. When the Chinese company completed their project they terminated the entire officer and the entire labourer. But I have a great hope for a job because I was an electrician and a diploma holder.

          But in think that every will be astonish to hear that now I am a Mason and working for the whole day long in the direct sun light. But still I hope that I am Three in One.

I never look behind. Because no young men ever think he shall die. He may believe that others will.


Assent to be doctrine that men are moral but he could bring it home to himself individually.

          Who will be the successful man in this mortal world……?

I think the successful man is that who prepare for Hereafter. If we keep the Islamic virtues we will be success I our life otherwise ………

میں پاس ہو گیا ہوں مگر پھر بھی فیل ہوں

                                                                       تعلیمی اداروں کے ہاتھو میں کھیل ہوں

جسکا نشانہ جائے غلط میں وہی غلیل ہوں

میں حاک میں ملا ہوا مٹی کا تیل ہوں

Magic gadget places six connections in single SIM

Filed under: News of the Day — aurangzebawan @ 8:05 am

ISLAMABAD (May 09 2009): One must wonder if told that it is possible for you to use six cellular connections with single Subscriber’s Identity Module (SIM). Experts say that there is a Magic Gadget available in the market, which enables you to have multiple connections in it. You can easily purchase the device and its driver with the instructions manual from the local markets.

“Basically, the SIM comes with no data in it, such as an audio cassette comes blank first, but you can record songs in it. The same way, you would have to purchase a blank SIM and get it loaded into a SIM card reader to load SIM data into it. The blank SIM is available in the market for Rs 250 while the cost of loading 6 SIM’s data over it is also Rs 250,” said Zawar Hussain, an IT expert, in an exclusive talk with the APP. For instance, he said, this blank SIM could be loaded with data of your Mobilink, Telenor, Zong and Warid SIMs, simultaneously.

“So you need to take along 5 SIMs to a mobile market, where someone offer such a services, to get 1 SIM in return that has all connections in it for Rs 500 only. You can keep one connection switched on at one time, and you will have to restart your phone in order to switch from one connection to another,” he added.

“It has been useful for the international traders who travel a lot, and they don’t have to carry local SIMs for each country they travel. So is the case of tourists and youth,” he added. However, Zawar Hussain noted that the Warid and Telenor SIMs may not be got copied on the same SIM which means that, if a SIM has Telenor’s data in it, then Warid’s data may not get copied and vice versa.

“If you use multiple SIMs with one mobile phone, then you can avoid opening phone and replacing SIMs with this 6 in 1 SIM. These SIM Card readers are available in all major markets of big cities, including Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Faisalabad, Sialkot, etc,” he added.

“Never give out your SIM to any shopkeeper for copying your SIM. Instead, get this USB SIM Card Reader/Copier and do this at your home. Otherwise, the shopkeeper may keep a copy of your SIM and use it later on,” warned the expert. When contacted, Mubasher Javed Khan, a college student, confirmed that he had done so.

“This is the best modern device I ever got. However, I think it affects our normal communication on a single SIM. I am looking for a gadget that could help me use more than one connections at a time. I would also want to know if this magic SIM works on all cell phones,” he added.

Uzair Khan, another student said it would be a very pleasant experience to have six connections over one SIM. However, he asked, “What about the protection of our SIM data. What if they copy your normal SIM data and save it later on and clone your SIM card on another blank sim.” When contacted, Zawar Hussain said this could happen and one must be very careful while using such a modern gadget.

“It is easy to make copies of these SIMs and write them on any blank SIM. I would suggest that never ever give your SIM to a shopkeeper for preparing this SIM even if he doesn’t charge you. If he prepares back up of your SIM on his computer, he would be able to use your SIM, as if you yourself would be using it. Moreover, he can make as many copies as he wishes. Not only that, no one would be able to help you not even that mobile company whose SIM are you using,” he added.

However, he said one cannot copy every SIM by this copier, it can copy only old SIM and not a new SIM, as the new SIMs have better technology. The new SIM circuit is small than the old ones, as the old SIM circuit is much bigger, he concluded.
