It means, beggars will get new AID from rest of world.

IT (International Islamic Terrorism) is working for Pakistan.


Mudy Ji :

All Terroristani, their Brother, Sisters et al are “Threatening” to Cancel the Foreign Debt, of course a few so-called sane and educated ones i.e. the Rich Anglophone Pakistani Elite are asking for Pakistan's US Dollars 55 Billion Foreign Debts to be “written off”.

If either of these course-path is taken then who will give the Terroristanis further Loans?

As such Foreign “Donors” – led by the You Knighted States of America – seem to be reluctant - and this is evidenced by the “Tardiness” in the lack of more and more grants especially for the flood relief.

[url=""][center][size="6"][color="#006400"]TTP says it will continue suicide attacks in Pakistan[/color][/size][/center][/url]

MIRAMSHAH : The Taliban said Tuesday they would continue to target Pakistani security forces with suicide attacks as they claimed responsibility for the latest blast that killed 19, its spokesman said.

“We are targeting Pakistani security forces because the government has allowed America to launch drone attacks on us,” Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Azam Tariq told AFP by telephone.

“Rather it is on the Pakistan government's behest that drone attacks target us,” he said.

“We will continue suicide attacks on security forces. Civilians should avoid proximity with them.”

Tariq claimed responsibility for Monday's suicide attack on a police station in northwestern Pakistan in which 19 people were killed.

Nine policemen and four schoolchildren were among those killed by the attack in Lakki Marwat in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, not far from tribal areas that are a stronghold of the Taliban.

“We carried out the Lakki Marwat suicide attack,” Tariq said, adding that the Taliban “regretted” the killing of schoolchildren in the attack.

“Our children are also killed in drone attacks,” he said.

The TTP frequently claims responsibility for attacks on Pakistani security forces but generally denies those that target civilians.

US forces have been waging a drone war against Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked commanders in Pakistan's northwestern tribal belt, where militants have carved out havens in mountains outside direct government control.

The US military does not as a rule confirm drone attacks, but its armed forces and the Central Intelligence Agency operating in Afghanistan are the only forces that deploy pilotless drones in the region.

Washington has branded the rugged tribal area on the Afghan border — part of which has now been hit by Pakistan's catastrophic flooding — a global headquarters of al-Qaeda.

[url=""]Blast targeting Kohat police colony kills 21[/url]

KOHAT : Twenty-one people were killed and 70 wounded in a bomb attack targeting police residential quarters in Kohat on Tuesday, Geo News reported Tuesday.

"Twenty-one people have been killed and 70 wounded, and there were women and children among the injured," a senior police official said.

"It was a big explosion. I am on site and can see the smoke. Several people have been wounded," he said.

"It was a car bomb blast, we are investigating whether the car was parked or was exploded by a suicide bomber," Khalid Khan, Commissioner Kohat said.

Rescue workers were facing difficulties as electricity was suspended after the blast.

The law enforcement personnel have cordoned off entire area. Police said a nearby police residential complex had also been severely damaged and houses had collapsed, trapping several people in the rubble.

Police said it was a bomb blast but they were investigating whether a suicide bomber had targeted the area or someone had planted a bomb.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik strongly condemned the Kohat bomb blast and sought an inquiry report from the Inspector General Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Police.

President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani have strongly condemned the bomb blast in Kohat and termed it as the most heinous crime against innocent civilians on the sacred day of 27th Ramazan.

Militants have launched a series of attacks in the past week as Muslims mark the final days of the holy month of Ramazan.

[url=""]Pak teetering on the brink of complete economic breakdown: Finance Minister[/url]

Providing a reality check on the shaky economic situation, Pakistan Finance Minister Dr. Hafeez Sheikh has said that the country is on the verge of a 'complete economic breakdown'.

Dr. Sheikh further sought the cooperation of the federal and provincial governments to steer the nation out of the mess.

He made these remarks in a meeting presided over by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on August 26.

Chief Ministers, Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman, services chiefs and bureaucrats attended the meeting.

"Giving an overview of the economic situation, the Finance Minister clearly told the top civil and military leadership that the national economy was teetering on the brink even before the floods and was now heading towards an abyss because of the devastation caused by the disaster," The Dawn quoted a senior official who attended the meeting, as saying.

The Finance Minister also said that the country's overall debt stood at about Rs.8.75 trillion, which had increased by a massive 46 percent from Rs.6 trillion two years ago.

"The debt has increased to such a level that the country is on the edge of insolvency," the official added.

Dr. Sheikh further said that the government would have to show strong commitment to restructure and improve the situation.

He also called for implementation of austerity measures approved by the federal cabinet last year 'to stop further bleeding'. (ANI)

[url=""]Pakistan’s paupers missing out on game’s riches[/url]

KARACHI : For millions of dirt-poor Pakistani boys, a professional cricket career is an escape route into a world of glamour, celebrity and untold riches. But it can also represent a fast-track on the road to ruin as the corruption scandal which has engulfed the international team has so dramatically highlighted. Many of the country’s best players - like Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer, currently under investigation in the ‘spot-fixing’ scandal - hail from small villages, from poor and uneducated backgrounds. Pakistan players’ agent Salman Ahmed believes it is a lack of grooming and guidance that leaves players stumped by excessive money and open to manipulation.

“An 18-year-old who bursts into the limelight and the glamour world needs special grooming. Not only in terms of cricket, but manners and awareness of good and bad,” said Ahmed, whose Portfolio World has had a contract with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) since January 2009. “Most importantly, wealth managers should be introduced to them, to these boys, who at one time could not buy a Pepsi and today are brand ambassadors for it,” added Ahmed, referring to Aamer.

Former PCB chairman Tauqir Zia managed to establish the National Cricket Academy in Lahore seven years ago, where courses to educate the players were finally introduced. But many commentators believe that players’ focus on the remuneration details in a contract and ignore the code of conduct. Big money came to Pakistan cricket only after Australian media tycoon Kerry Packer hired a dozen of them for his World Series of Cricket in 1978. Before the Packer circus, the only money-earning avenues for Pakistani players were stints in county cricket in England.

Currently, Pakistan players can earn money through central contracts, soft-drink and mobile phone sponsorship and endorsements. Players in the A category of central contracts get Rs 250,000 ($2,905) a month; B category brings Rs 175,000 ($2,035) and in C they get Rs 100,000 ($1,161). In addition, a top category player gets Rs 350,000 ($4,066) for playing a Test match and Rs 300,000 ($3,485) for an ODI and Rs 250,000 ($2,904) for a Twenty20 match.

Players in the corresponding categories get Rs 50,000 ($581) less in each form of the game. There are special win bonuses and cash awards on performances, opening up riches largely unseen in a country where 74 percent of the population survive on less than two dollars a day, according to the World Bank. “An average player in the national team can make from $100,000 to $1 million a year, depending upon his popularity and seniority,” said Ahmed.

Endorsements for bats can range from $30,000 to $100,000 per annum, while top players like Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar can easily make $25,000 to $150,000 a year through commercials. But compared to the superstars of the Indian game, these sums are modest. Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni earlier this year signed a three-year endorsement worth Rs 2.1 billion ($42 million). It was in India where Pakistan players looked set for life when they featured in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Four out of eleven Pakistani players were bought at the IPL auction for over $400,000 a season, with Afridi topping the chart with $675,000 followed by Asif with $650,000. But Pakistan players’ were then hit hard when they were banned from the next two IPL seasons after relations between India and Pakistan came to a flash point following the terrorist attack on Mumbai, an atrocity which New Delhi blamed on militants based across the border. Many observers believe that those losses in the IPL forced the Pakistani players to find short cuts to boost their incomes and fell into the trap of the illegal bookies. “All Pakistan players need is guidance and stability, this will bring loyalty and eliminate any shortcuts which one might need to take to fulfill dreams, aspirations, and at times, unlawful desires,” said Ahmed.

[url=""]Dire economic straits[/url]

Bad news from Pakistan has become the norm rather than an exception. Just a fortnight ago, a meeting attended by the prime minister, the chief ministers and the service chiefs was informed by the finance minister himself that the country was going bankrupt.

Dr Hafeez Sheikh warned his stunned audience that the national debt had increased to a perilous level. “The country is on the edge of insolvency to the extent that the government will not have the money to pay off salaries in two months,” he said.

Soon after, the finance minister left for Washington with a 17-member delegation for talks with the IMF for the release of the remaining two tranches amounting to $2.6 billion under the Stand-by Arrangement (SBA). According to media reports, IMF officials chided the economic czar and members of his team for inconsistency in official assessments of the impact of the floods on the economic landscape of the country.

The IMF has put the SBA loan on hold till the November-December review talks.
Meanwhile, a blame-game has started among the members of the delegation regarding the failure of the visit.

An insider, who was also quoted in a section of the media, said that even before the delegation arrived in Washington, the principal economic adviser to the finance ministry, Saqib Sherani, had intimated the IMF, the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank through an email that Pakistan was going to experience its worst-ever economic scenario, with zero GDP growth and 25 per cent inflation on a short-term basis.

The same report claims that the finance minister and his team turned up at the IMF head-office asserting there would be a 2.5 per cent GDP growth, 13 per cent inflation and 4.5 per cent deficit, after the impact of the floods on the economy had been taken into consideration.

The prime minister further damaged the credibility of the delegation by stating that the budget deficit would be 6-7 per cent.
It is no surprise that the IMF chided the delegation for the conflicting claims about the flood damage.

The delegation stayed in the US for more than ten days, comfortably ensconced in one of the most expensive hotels of the US capital. All it could achieve was for Pakistan to be allowed to avail the $450-million facility reserved for national emergencies. An official quoted in the media has correctly pointed out that Pakistan could have secured the emergency support through a simple letter instead of the expensive junket to Washington.

It is obvious that, notwithstanding the unprecedented damage caused by the floods, the malaise afflicting the country’s economy runs much deeper. As the finance minister informed his august audience last month, [color="#FF0000"]the economic situation was precarious even before the sudden onset of the floods.[/color] None of the targets agreed with the IMF had been achieved, he informed them.

Even the provinces are making conflicting, and inflated, claims about the damage inflicted by the floods. The political will and consensus among the provinces regarding the imposition of the value-added tax (VAT) by next month, as per the agreement with the IMF, is also lacking. Neither is a plan in the offing for the reduction of the ever-increasing circular debt.

It seems that the IMF is no longer willing to offer a free lunch to Pakistan despite the blandishments of our economic managers. To be fair, the dire economic straits that we are in are not entirely the making of the present government. However, the manner in which the economy is being handled has compounded its problems, with the floods proving to be the last straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.

The meltdown of the economy will have far-reaching implications for the country, with democracy likely being the first casualty. In spite of this, the federal government and the provinces are simply not willing to improve governance, tighten their belt or to lead by example. They seem to be oblivious to the impending crisis.

At the federal level, a pervasive sense of inertia persists. In a parliamentary system a mid-term reshuffle is the norm, sometimes even for cosmetic political reasons. The coalition government has completed half of its five-year term by fits and starts. But none of the key members of the team have been changed or been shown the door for incompetence or corruption. The only exception is the finance ministry which has seen four ministers come and go.

As a result, a new style of governance (or lack of it) has emerged. On the one hand, our India policy, Kashmir, counter-terrorism and, lately, flood-relief have been partly or fully outsourced to the military. [color="#FF0000"]On the other, our economic policy has become the domain of former IMF/World bank mandarins,[/color] who have been unable to develop roots in the political milieu. Dr Hafeez Sheikh and his advisors are perceived by their political masters as outsiders, their counsels falling on deaf ears.

Dr Sheikh’s predecessor, Shaukat Tarin, left in disgust when he sensed that politicians are not willing to change their profligate mindset. He successfully pursued a macro-economic stabilisation programme with the assistance of the IMF and was able to bring a modicum of stability in the economy, with a decrease in inflation and a lowering of interest rates.

Pakistan’s economic malaise, however, runs much deeper than the real or perceived incompetence of our rulers and economic mangers. For long we as a nation have lived much beyond our means. The way our economy is structured, the figures simply do not add up. According to former State Bank Governor Dr Ishrat Hussain, who now heads the IBA in Karachi, Pakistan’s government secures only 15 per cent of the national income, leaving 85 percent in the hands of the private sector.

This amount is to be spent on defence, debt-servicing, internal security, development on education health and general administration. Out of every rupee of income received by a Pakistani on average, the tax paid is only 9 paisas. A meagre tax-to-GDP ratio of 9 per cent and our dismal rate of savings are too low for sustained economic growth.

With the ever-rising budget deficits, inflation is bound to increase. According to Dr Ishrat Hussain, double-digit inflation rates in Pakistan have historically been rare. Hence, the tolerance threshold for inflation beyond 7 and 8 per cent is low. Inflation, expected to rise to 25 per cent as a result of floods, will have far-reaching socio-economic consequences.

With the economy teetering and the social safety net virtually non-existent, coupled with rampant terrorism, poor law and order and the aftermath of devastating floods are a recipe for disaster. Our expenditure on health education and clean water as a per cent of the GDP is dismally low even by Third World standards. [color="#FF0000"]With such poor social indicators, sustained economic growth is impossible.[/color]

Ironically, Pakistan is a nuclear power and its armed forces rank seventh in the world. Its defence budget is about $5 billion, or 3.5 per cent of the GDP. On the other hand, the country is virtually bankrupt. [color="#FF0000"][size="5"]It is becoming increasingly impossible to match India’s defence capability,[/size] which incidentally is now one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.[/color]

However, our present security paradigm does not permit us to reduce our defence outlays or the size of our armed forces. [color="#FF0000"][size="5"]A legitimate concern for some is that perhaps the Indians are bleeding us in the same manner as the US bled the former Soviet Union, trying to achieve the same end-result.[/size] Nevertheless, economic mismanagement has long-term security implications. The second Benazir Bhutto government was sacked on this basis, with the concurrence of the Army.[/color]

The Nordic countries continue to be well positioned in the ranking, with Sweden, Finland (7th) and Denmark (9th) among the top 10, and with Norway at 14th. The United Kingdom, after falling in the rankings over recent years, moves back up by one place to 12th position.

According to the report, China continues to lead the way among large developing economies, improving by two places this year and joining the top 30. India dropped two places and is now at 51st; Bangladesh is at 107th from 106th but showing stability. Sri Lanka showed a remarkable improvement of 17 places and is now ranked 62nd
