Analysis on recent Talat Hussain show with Imran Khan (please read and comment)

آج میں نے طلعت حسین کا پروگرام دیکھا جو اس نے عمران خان کے ساتھ کیا اور اس سے یو ایس ڈرون کے حوالے سے اسکی پالیسی پر بحث کی۔ کچھ بھی کہنے سے پہلے میں یہ کہہ دوں کہ میں طلعت کی عزت کرتا ہوں اور اسے جینوین جرنلسٹ سمجھتا ہوں اور وہ پاکستان کا فخرہے اور میری اسکے بارے میں راے یہ پروگرام دیکھنے کے بعد بھی وہی ہے۔


میں طلعت صاحب کے اس پروگرام کا تنقیدی جایزہ آپ کے سامنے رکھنا چاہتاہوں۔ طلعت نے عمران سے پوچھا کہ آپکے اس مارچ سے یو ایس ڈرون سے بمباری تو نہیں روکنے والا۔
میں طلعت کی اس بات سے بالکل متفق ہوں ۔ تو پھر اسکا حل کیا ہے؟ کیا چپ کرکے بیٹھنا چاہیے یقینا یہ حل تو نہیں ہے ۔ دوسری بات یہ ہے کہ پی ٹی آیی اپنی موجودہ حیثیت میں اور کیا کرسکتی ہے ۔ زیادہ سے زیادہ یہی کرسکتی ہے جو اس نے کیا۔ باقی کے سوالات اگر طلعت آصف علی زرداری کا ایسا ہی انٹرویو کرکے پوچھ لیں یا فارن منسٹر کو ہی بلالیں اور اس سے اتنے ہی سخت سوال پوچھ لیں تو بہتر نہ ہوتا۔ کیونکہ مسلہ تو ویسے بھی اسی طرح موجود ہے اور ملیٹینٹ ختم تو نہیں ہو گیے اور نہ ہی ختم ہوں گے۔


پھر عمران نے جب یہ کہا کہ اگر پی ٹی آیی کی حکوم…

An Unsung Hero of Modern History: Gen Akhtar Abdur Rehman PKKH Exclusive | by Mariam Shah


“General Akhtar was the architect of the Afghan Jihad. It was he who advocated Pakistani participation, it was he who devised the overall military strategy, and it was he who supervised its implementation so skillfully that the Mujahedeen defeated a superpower” (Brig Retd Muhammad Yusaf)

Buried in the Army graveyard in Rawalpindi, this unsung brave man is one of the true heroes of this land, who defeated a world super power in the Afghan jihad. He was a silent soldier who crafted the destruction plan of the Soviet Union at the hands of the Mujahedeen. He showed passion, commitment, intelligence and the warrior spirit of the great Islamic conquerors. He gave a spark to and ignited the lifeless intelligence agency of Pakistan and made it one of the finest and a dynamic spy agency of the world. Through his tireless and tacit efforts, ISI played an important part in the destructi…

عوام نے موجودہ حکمرانوں کو اپنے اوپر حکمرانی کا شرف بخشا تھا! اس امید سے کہ یہ انکی حالتِ زار کو خوشحالی میں بدلیں گے۔ ترقی آئے گی، مہنگائی سے نجات ملے گی اور جلتا ہوا ملک امن کی راہ پر چل پڑے گا۔ خواب تو سہانا تھا مگر تعبیر الٹی نکلی۔ عوام کی حالت بد سے بد تر ہوتی گئی، مہنگائی نے بھوکا مرنے پر مجبور کردیا۔۔ غریب اپنے ہی جگر کے ٹکڑوں کو قتل کرنے لگے۔* خودکشی کرنے لگے۔ ملک میں اُٹھی آگ کی چنگاری شعلہ بن گئی۔ کسی نے سابق وزیرِاعظم عزت ماب سید یوصف رضا گیلانی صاحب سے عوام کی شکستہ حالی کے بارے سوال پوچھا تو موصوف نے دو ٹوک الفاظ میں کہہ دیا تھا کہ "تو وہ پاکستان چھوڑ کیوں نہیں دیتے؟

The News: ""Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf May Bagawat""

Resentment seems to be on rise in the party ranks against the media cell of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf (PTI) and a group of the party members wants immediate dissolution of the media cell just like other wings to ensure that workers chose members through party polls.

According to sources, a group within the party seems to be greatly displeased over the way the media wing of the party is handling the affairs at a time when its responsibility is very high keeping in view very limited time left in the upcoming elections.

Insiders in the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf stated that feeling of resentment against Information secretary of the of party, Shafqat Mehmood, was on a high and most of the members, who claim to stand by the party in the time of crisis, were unhappy with the way the new media team of Imran Khan was working.

A group within the party believes that since the nomination of Shafqat Mehmood as the new information secretary, the party has failed to maintain its popularit…

Hamid Karzai says to Imran Khan "Mind Your Own Business" !!

KABUL:
The reverberations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s political gaffe are being felt across the Durand Line.

The Afghan government has strongly condemned the PTI chief for his statement, said Farhad Azimi, deputy secretary of the Afghan parliament while talking to The Express Tribune.

“This is clear interference in Afghanistan’s internal affairs. We urge the Pakistani government to arrest people who support the Taliban,” Azimi said. Imran, while visiting child activist Malala Yousafzai in Peshawar on Thursday, had termed the ongoing war in Afghanistan against foreign troops ‘jihad.’

کراچی … متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کے قائد الطاف حسین کا کہنا ہے کہ ڈرون حملوں کے خلاف ہیں اور ان کی مخالفت کرتے رہیں گے، پاک فوج طالبان کے خلاف کارروائی کرے، ایم کیو ایم ساتھ دے گی۔ کراچی کے جناح گراوٴنڈ عزیز آباد میں متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کے جنرل ورکز اجلاس سے ٹیلی فونک خطاب میں ایم کیوایم کے قائد الطاف حسین نے کہا کہ ملالہ یوسف زئی علم کا اجالا ہے، جس پر حملہ کرنیوالے دہشت گرد انسان نہیں درندے ہیں۔ ملالہ ، شازیہ اور کائنات کی جلد صحت یابی کی دعا کرتے ہوئے الطاف حسین نے سوال کیا کہ اس حملہ کے بعد بعض سیاسی اور مذہبی جماعتیں خاموش کیوں ہیں؟، یہ خاموشی سمجھ سے بالاتر ہے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ عوام پاکستان کی بقاء و سلامتی اور قائد اعظم کا پاکستان چاہتے ہیں یا دنیا کے نقشے سے پاکستان کو مٹانا چاہتے ہیں۔ الطاف حسین کا کہنا تھا کہ تمام مشکلات کے باوجود آگے بڑھنا ہوگا، قوموں کو اپنی حالت خود بدلنا ہوتی ہے۔ ایم کیو ایم کے قائد نے کہاکہ جن 50 علماء نے ملالہ پر حملے کے خلاف فتوے دیئے وہ انہیں سلام پیش کرتے ہیں۔ الطاف حسین نے بتایا کہ ایم کیو ایم ڈرون حملوں کے خلاف ہے اور آئندہ بھ…

یہ بات درست ہے کہ ملالہ یوسف زئی کو سر آنکھوں پر بٹھانے والوں کو ڈرون حملوں میں اپاہج اور ہلاک ہونے والے سینکڑوں بچے یاد نہیں اور میڈیا کو صرف ملالہ سے مطلب ہے۔ اس کے ساتھ زخمی ہونے والی شازیہ اور کائنات کے بارے میں کوئی فکر اور ذکر نہیں۔

بالکل اسی طرح جیسے مغرب نے گذشتہ پانچ سو برس سے ایک انیس سالہ ان پڑھ فرانسیسی دہقانی لڑکی جون آف آرک کو سر پر چڑھا رکھا ہے۔ حالانکہ برطانیہ اور فرانس کے درمیان سو سالہ جنگ میں لاکھوں مرد، عورتیں اور بچے مرے۔ ہزاروں عورتوں کو جون کی طرح مشرک ہونے کے جرم میں پادریوں نے چوکوں میں نصب چوبی کھمبوں سے باندھ کر زندہ جلا دیا۔

کن پاپائے روم نے ان میں سے کسی کو جون کی طرح ولی کا درجہ نہیں دیا اور شیکسپئیر، والٹیئر، بریخت، برنارڈ شا نے بھی اپنے ڈراموں کا کردار بنایا تو صرف جون کو۔
کیسا ظلم ہے کہ دوسری عالمی جنگ میں ہٹلر کی مزاحمت کرنے والے فرانسیسی حریت پسندوں کو اپنا مزاحمتی سمبل بھی پانچ سو سال پرانی جون آف آرک میں ہی دکھائی دیا۔حالانکہ جون آف آرک…

Malala - A perfect target with best timing.

A perfect target, right when everyone was talking about drones and their victims.
Our COAS/interior minister/international media/local media everyone is crying for that poor kid. and why should not we all do, its a poor baby girl who had nothing to do with everything, just going to school with other kids and boom a shot in the head. Shame on those savages for targeting a poor kid. And then I was thinking I dont know even one kid's name who was targeted by drones, surely someone innocent I mean at least one kid was injured during those drones strikes but I dont recall one name. WHY?

A poor swati girl flogged by savages: right when everyone was talking about giving peace a chance. WHY?

PTI's Senior Vice President Angry Shah Mehmood Qureshi Joining PMLn ...

Image
Islamabad:


Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi is likely to join Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) after having confrontation with the party’s chief Imran Khan.


According to sources close to PTI vice chairman, Qureshi was annoyed with the party leadership after not giving him the chance to speak during the PTI’s peace march gathering in Tank.


“Qureshi has started negotiations with PML-N and soon an announcement is imminent,” they said.PML-N leader Mushahid Ullah Khan refused to confirm the news of Qureshi joining PML-N but said that negotiations were going on with the PTI leader.


It is to be mentioned here that after PTI’s large public gathering in Lahore and Karachi, several renowned politicians joined the party but now many of them had either left the party or ready to do so.

" 10 questions for Imran Khan Niazi "

Image
Q 1: Sir, you have always maintained that militants are taking innocent Pakistani lives because the militants are being attacked by American drones. But the militants insist that they would “kill everyone and anyone who stands against the imposition” of their version of Islam. In essence, the militants are convinced that they are fighting for ‘Islam’ while you continue to maintain that militant actions are actually reactions to American drones.

Q 2: Sir, if anyone wishes to negotiate with the PML-N, he would naturally have Mian Nawaz Sharif, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan or Senator Pervez Rasheed in mind. You have always favoured negotiating peace with the militants. Please name just four names representing the militants that are in your mind with whom you will negotiate peace.

Q 3: Sir, you have promised that Prime Minister Imran Khan shall wipe off militancy from the face of the country. Can you please name just two militant organisations that you plan to…

6 Pak universities among top 300 Asian universities, says HEC

LAHORE - The Higher Education Commission (HEC) Executive Director Prof Dr Sohail H. Hayat while addressing a video conferencing seminar on Monday in connection with the 10 years establishment of HEC, said that six Pakistani universities have been ranked among the top 300 Asian universities while two Pakistani universities are standing among the top 300 sciences and technology institutions of the world.
Besides this, 41 more universities had been established across the country in a span of ten years to educate the people with modern and quality education, he observed. Dr Sohail urged the educationists and the researchers to maintain good relations with the industry in order to transform their knowledge into goods and services by solving the problems of the industries with the help of good research work.
Highlighting the contributions of the HEC during the last ten years, he said that they had enabled the spread of higher education to every region of Pakistan with an incre…

A Pakistani passport. An increasing number of Pakistani men have married foreign-residents despite being in relationship with women and having wives back home – File photo courtesy Creative Commons Young, old, fat, short, tall, fair, dark, smart, intelligent, caring – it doesn’t matter for young Pakistani men seeking prospective brides as a shortcut exit overseas. The only criterion is that you must hold a foreign passport and be able to financially support yourself as a young woman because this type of man isn’t in it for the long run.
Simple, innocent and conservative overseas-born or raised Pakistani girls are an easy target for these men. Most Pakistani families living abroad raise their children in a sheltered and protective environment, where they try to maintain their traditional ties with their native country and expect the same respect in return.

Bridging gap between borders and generations

‘Face to Faith’ brings students from Pakistan and India together to talk about treatment of elders

The mention of Pakistan conjured up stark images for students of Brindavan Vidyalaya until an interaction through video conferencing this week shattered the cultivated stereotypes.

Though divided by borders, students from both nations found a common pitch in challenges they faced, including the widening gap between Generation Y and senior citizens.

Organised by international organisation , ‘Face to Faith’ that brings students across cultures and faiths together through technology, the video-conference between four schools, two from Pakistan and two from India , included Brindavan Vidyalaya, Thiruvanaikoil as a participant. The school had invited grandparents to join students in the discussion centred on International Day of Older Persons observed on October 1.

The mediator encouraged students to share anecdotes and axioms from scriptu…

Ghairat is not Honor!

An interesting read. I guess many of non-resident Pakistanis and Indians can to some degree relate to this article.

They do not have a word for ‘ghairat’ in English

Soruce: They do not have a word for

“They do not have a word for ‘ghairat’ in English,” said Khadim. He paused, looked at his audience and asked: “Do you know why?”

Without waiting for a response, he added: “Because they do not have ‘ghairat’ in the West.” His remarks, as he had expected, pleased this audience of South Asian Muslims, Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. “Not true,” said Farhan, one of the few liberals in the crowd. “They do have a word for ‘ghairat,’ honour.”

“Incorrect,” declared Khadim, “honour is a very light word. It does not have the intensity of ‘ghairat.’”

Many in the audience understood this ‘intensity’ well. They had grown-up daughters. And every time their daughters went out, in jeans or shalwar-kameez, they felt this intensity. The intensity increases, if the jeans are a bit too tight or…

Pakistan school offers hope for children rescued from the Taliban

At first glance they seem just like any other group of high-spirited teenage schoolboys. Dressed in the compulsory school uniform comprising green-and-white striped shirts and cream trousers, they spend their mornings studying hard for their exams and their afternoons on the playing fields.

To observe these boys studiously poring over their textbooks, or running around the sports field during games of football or basketball, it was hard to imagine that only a few months previously they had been living a very different existence.
For the 180 or so boys attending this highly specialised school on Pakistan's lawless North-West Frontier are all veterans of the Taliban, the militant Islamist movement that is waging war on both sides of the border with neighbouring Afghanistan.
Seized or bought from their families by Taliban fighters promising them a better life, they were plunged into a relentless cycle of indoctrination aimed at turning them into suicide bombers or fighte…

Imran Khan, knowingly or unknowingly ‘Taliban’ Khan – The Express Tribune Blog

Image
Imran Khan is guilty of one of two things. He is either guilty of deliberately and knowingly legitimising the Pakistani Taliban as a political force for what he perceives to be his own populist gain, or he is guilty of colossal naivety and unintelligibility.

Personally, I am far more worried by the latter, and also far more convinced of its plausibility.

Allow me to explain.

Let’s consider the possibility that Imran Khan is indeed playing to what he understands the populist tune to be and that his soft, apologetic stance towards the Pakistani Taliban is a deliberate ploy fueled out of a mixture of two fears; one fear being of his own life and the other being of antagonising his Pashtun support base.

This is not implausible.

It would not make sense for Imran Khan to be making new enemies with elections and his first real chance of being a major part of a coalition fast approaching. This would also allow him the liberty of being able to take a harsher stance towards the Pakis…

Palestine cancel tour to Pakistan

KARACHI: Palestine’s tour to Pakistan for two friendly football matches has been cancelled, a Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) press release issued on Sunday confirmed.

The Palestine national team were set to play two friendly matches between October 14-18 in Pakistan but the venue was yet to be confirmed.

According to the statement issued, the Sports Board of Punjab confirmed the availability of Punjab Stadium for the two matches very late due to which Palestine was forced to withdraw as they could not send a team on such a short notice.

Palestine also toured Pakistan last year for a two-match series which was played in Karachi and Lahore. The visitors won the series 1-0.

Pakistan is likely to tour Singapore in November as it would be difficult to arrange any other series, PFF’s secretary general Ahmad Yar Lodhi was quoted as saying by a local newspaper.
