Why they want to involve Pakis in any Indian business?


Pakistan : Terrorist Wahabi Islamic Rep Pakistan 7 - ravish - 04-19-2012

It is part of India’s policy to keep Pakistan engaged and through these measures it expects that confidence and goodwill will build up between the two countries. As you are aware, there are hardliners on both side of the border. In India we have a number of opinion makers who think that there should be no dealing with Pakistan, till it agrees to all the demands made by India from time to time since 1947.

In Pakistan, a section of the opinion makers feel that there should be no interaction with India till Kashmir dispute is resolved as per the dictates of Pakistan. In between these two extreme positions, the successive governments on both sides of the border have tried to move forward. Some have succeeded to some extent and some have failed. The reasons for the stalemate are well know and needs no repetition.

There are media reports today, quoting the Pakistan Army Chief as saying that normalisation of relations with India is a must for the socio economic development of both the countries. There is nothing new or significant in this statement, except that it gives some insight to the thoughts within the Pakistan military establishment. So far it has been the general perception that the Pakistan Army leadership is against any normalisation of relations with India. However, today’s statement from the Pak Army Chief is in total contrast with the public perception in India of Pak Army. Let us hope that this trend continues and some positive developments do take place.

Quote:Islamabad: An editorial in a Pakistan daily has highlighted that Hindus are not treated equally under the country’s law and added that a bill to recognise their marriages has been stalled in Parliament for unexplained reasons.



The Express Tribune editorial said that lacunae of an appropriate law against forced conversion has made it easier for women to get abducted and forced to remarry after conversion.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

Fools will remain fools forever.

FAISALABAD: [color="#FF0000"][size="5"]The average height of Pakistanis has fallen four inches over the last 50 years due to malnourishment and food deficiency.[/size][/color]



This was revealed in a workshop on “Applied Nature Need Based research Projects of Food Industries” organized by National Institute of Food Science & Technology (NIFSAT) University of Agriculture, Faisalabad here on Monday.



Speaking on the occasion, Vice Chancellor, UAF Professor Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan, [size="5"][color="#FF0000"]said that cousin marriages were also one of the reasons for the short stature of Pakistanis.[/color][/size] He urged the need for new diet packages to be introduced for balanced, affordable food.



Dr Iqrar also expressed concerns over existing eating habits, saying 50 years ago, large amounts of corn flour was traditionally consumed, but over time, Pakistanis had lost the mechanism to cook roti with corn flour, which was a cheaper, healthier staple food item.



Dr Iqrar revealed that a BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition and Dietetics and Food Engineering degree was being initiated for the first time in the country. He hoped that by introducing new disciplines, a trained human resource would be available for the food industry.



Speaking on the occasion, Mehboob Aly Manji, President, VITA Pakistan stressed the need to exploit the indigenous food potential by introducing fruits drinks such as Falsa, Luqat and Jaman. He said that floriculture practices could be most beneficial in uplifting the living standards of small farmers. Manji said Pakistan was exporting 80-90 tons of flowers to Saudi Arabia every year, and this volume could be increased by promoting and incentivizing floriculture.



Professor Dr Faqir Muhammad Anjum, Director General (NIFSAT) said that Nestle Pakistan and VITA Food have signed MOU’s to promote skill development initiatives through short courses.



“NIFSAT has conducted 12 national and international symposia, seminars and workshops during the last year with the collaboration of industries,” he added.



Dr Muhammad Shafique Ch. Director, RAMNA Food, Lahore stressed the need for a value addition mechanism, keeping in view the demand of consumers.



He expressed his concerns over the Punjab government’s decision to purchase 2.5 million ton of wheat this year, given that 4.5 million tons of wheat was stored in the province.

ISLAMABAD: Top Pakistani leaders will on Tuesday (today) discuss ending a blockade of foreign military supply routes into Afghanistan and repairing US relations, signalling a rapprochement ahead of a Nato summit.



Islamabad shut its Afghan border to Nato supplies after US air strikes killed 24 soldiers in November, provoking a new crisis in relations on top of the outcry from the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden the previous May.



But Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said on Monday that it was time to “move on”, conceding a key demand from the West in time for Pakistan to attend the Nato summit in Chicago on Sunday and Monday.



Pakistan has called in vain for an end to US drone strikes targeting Taliban and al Qaeda militants on its soil, and a formal apology for the November killings.



But analysts say Pakistan has no choice but to reopen the border when US cash is needed to help boost its meagre state coffers, at a time when major Nato discussions are underway affecting its own strategic future.



“It was important to make a point, Pakistan has made a point and we now need to move on and go into a positive zone and try to conduct our relations,” Khar told a news conference.



“We are trying to put this relationship, you know, in a positive zone and I am quite sure that we will be successful in doing so,” she said.



The Pakistani cabinet’s defence committee, which groups senior civilian and military figures including the prime minister, army chief of staff and intelligence chief, will convene from 1430 GMT on Tuesday.



A meeting of the full cabinet is expected to follow on Wednesday, officials have said.



Pakistan’s involvement in the Chicago summit could boost the country’s leverage over the future of Afghanistan, as Nato countries pull out their combat forces by 2014 after a decade of increasingly unpopular war.



Asked whether Islamabad would allow a resumption of Nato supplies, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira said on Monday that a decision would be made within days but refused to go into detail, citing “sensitivities”.



The US State Department said both countries had made “considerable progress” on ending the blockade, which has held up lengthy convoys of fuel and supply trucks all the way to the Pakistani port city of Karachi in the south.



Pakistani and US officials spent the weekend locked in talks in Islamabad on reaching an understanding to govern fees, logistics and other obligations should trucks again carry Nato supplies through Pakistan.



The supply line negotiating team arrived in the country with US special envoy Marc Grossman, who visited in April, and stayed on after he left, officials said.



“They are not yet finished with the Pakistanis,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.



“But we’re having a full review with the government of Pakistan on how this transit system works and all of the issues are on the table in that context.”



Islamabad reiterated Monday that it would still like an apology for the November air strikes, with the foreign minister saying it was “on the table”.



The United States has expressed regret for the deaths, which an American and Nato investigation said stemmed from mistakes made on both sides during fighting on the Afghan border with Pakistan.



In a further sign that tensions are easing, Pakistan on Sunday hosted the most senior talks with Nato and the Afghan military in nearly a year, focused on improving border coordination.

Dr Muhammad Yaqub



The country has witnessed a steadily declining economy, a weakening of the conventional defence capability and emergence of a directionless foreign policy during the last several years.



World history is full of evidence that no country has been able to maintain and sustain a deterrent defence and an independent foreign policy with a weak economy that becomes increasingly dependent on foreign handouts. Pakistan had a great economic potential but its economic mismanagement has gradually driven it towards economic bankruptcy. Following the deep slide of the economy, vulnerability of defence and loss of independence in foreign policy were inevitable.



In the context of an all-round decay, there is public clamour for economic recovery, a strong defence and an independent foreign policy. However, there should be simultaneous recognition that a heavily indebted government, with the economy falling apart, is incapable of perusing an independent foreign policy and maintaining a viable defence posture. Accordingly, protection of territorial integrity and pursuit of an independent foreign policy have to be preceded by the strength of the economy. Without economic reforms and economic recovery, any attempt to pursue an independent foreign policy is doomed to fail.



Historically, the economic deterioration has taken place due to systematic economic mismanagement by opportunistic and insincere leaderships that indulged in widespread corruption. The first generation of Pakistanis that struggled to create the country, and sustained it in its infancy are perhaps turning in their graves over the performance of the subsequent generations that brought it to the brink of collapse. Since corrupt practices cannot coexist with strong state institutions and amid rule of law, the institutions were systematically destroyed and laws openly violated by those in power in order to create scope for self-serving economic decisions.



With institutional decay, the lawmakers became lawbreakers, the army lost its high moral ground by indulging in spheres beyond its jurisdiction, the custodians of the legal system began to endorse unconstitutional adventures, In terms of foreign policy Pakistan began to carry an economic begging bowls in its hands and, with less accountability, society in general became more tolerant of corrupt practices.



The nation lost its identity and cohesiveness and degenerated into an unwieldy crowd of individual engaged in self-service, with the government becoming an exclusive club of exploiters. The people of Pakistan are now paying the price for what the ruling class did for such a long time.



If the country has to recover and sustain itself as an independent entity, it must move in a new direction in proper sequence, starting with the cleaning up of the national leadership for the initiation of good governance practices. Whether it will change its direction or fall further in a deeper ditch depends on many unpredictable factors, the most important of which is the way the people use their voting rights in the forthcoming general elections.



The new direction has to begin with the emergence of a new and dedicated political leadership that gives first priority to saving the economy through better management and good governance, and at a later stage builds an independent foreign policy and viable defence on the basis of a strong economic foundation. Any other sequence is neither workable nor sustainable.



The first requirement for the recovery of the country from its present malaise, therefore, is an awakening of the masses for Pakistan to be rid of the corrupt political leadership. Interlocking of political, economic and social power will need to be broken. The existing order must be buried deep in the ground through ballot boxes by the third generation of voters, especially younger perople, who are in majority by now. A government of the majority, for the majority and by the majority of patriotic masses through the ballet box is the only way out.



Assuming that general public awakening will bring a new political leadership to the forefront, it will have to make a realistic assessment of the ground realities to liberate Pakistan from the tyranny of the rich and powerful, the shackles of the divisions in the society and the corruption at all the levels. The rule of law and strong accountability at all levels would need to be established simultaneously with economic policy reforms, including building up of state institutions.



It will have to take drastic economic reform measures to stabilise the economy and restore a respectable rate of economic growth with relative price stability and improving balance of payment outlook before rebuilding a deterrent defence and independent foreign policy. A reverse sequence will not work.



The revival of the economy itself will require proper sequencing in economic planning and its execution. It cannot be started with false promises of immediate prosperity and unrealistic expectations of economic boom. It has to be based on a long-term vision of exploiting the growth potential of the country through mobilisation of domestic savings and investing them in productive priority areas. The policies of patronage and privileges would need to be replaced by those that help improve employment, entrepreneurial efficiency and labour productivity and exploit the agricultural, mineral and industrial potential of the country.



Improving public finances through austerity in expenditure and mobilisation of additional revenue should be the first national economic priority. Reorientation of public sector expenditure, austerity in lifestyle of government figures and the people and habit of living within means at the government and individual level would need to be promoted. Prestige public sector projects and conspicuous consumption would need to be abandoned. The loss-making public-sector enterprises should be privatised and economic institutions allowed functioning professionally, without political interference. The government should concentrate on the development of infrastructure, in particular the availability of electricity and gas for industries and of water for agriculture. To pay for such projects, the governments at all levels will have to mobilise real resources.



The tax/GDP ratio has to be doubled from the present low level by dismantling the underground economy, improvement in tax collection, documentation of the economy, extension of tax net to untaxed sectors and transactions and ensuring efficiency and elasticity of the tax structure and horizontal and vertical equity in tax incidence. Monetary policy would need to be freed from the shackles of the ministry of finance to allow adequate flow of bank credit to the private sector at reasonable interest rates and mobilisation of private sector savings by providing a positive real rate of return.



Rising level of productive investment in the private sector would need to be financed by a similar level of domestic savings. The incentive structure would need to be recast to discourage private consumption and promote private saving. Corporate laws and regulatory framework requires strengthening. Inflation would need to be controlled both by supply enhancement and demand management.



The balance of payments will have to be strengthened by reducing dependence on imports and accelerating exports and home remittances. Reliance on foreign borrowing would need to be severely curtailed while foreign direct investment is encouraged.



The growth rate will have to be pushed up to the range of 7-8 percent and effective measures taken to reduce the population growth. Agricultural productivity will have to be enhanced and labour-intensive industrialisation encouraged to reduce unemployment and poverty.



On the social side, the glaring economic disparities would need to be replaced by a more egalitarian welfare state and national priorities would need to be shifted towards education, health and skill development.



It is a tall order of institutional, social and economic reforms but so is the depth of economic problems. Those cannot be tackled in a short time and by mere cosmetic changes. During the period of rebuilding of the economy and restructuring of the society a low-key foreign policy and a less expensive defence posture would need to be adopted.



In short, national reforms cannot start by focusing on foreign policy and building up of defence capability while the economy is neglected. Those areas have to wait for recovery of the economy from its present state of collapse the way China did in the last sixty years.

Last year it was Ramazan Kareem, instead of Ramazan Mubarak, and this year roza and Ramazan are the ‘bad’ words. We’re told it issawm and not roza; Ramadan and not Ramazan. Why they haven’t just yet realised the folly of calling salaa(t) namaaz is beyond me. Wuzu has been set right as wudu, but azaan has been left alone and not rechristened (have an Arabian equivalent?) as adhaan.



While it is now customary to say “We’ll meet after Maghrib”, Zuhr, soon to be Dhuhr and Isha, soon to be ‘Isha’a, have been spared. Asralso has been spared the ‘Asr effect, (as has been Ali, which has yet to be respelt as ‘Ali). Fajr perhaps is too early in the day to be bothered with, so no one mentions that time, or is it because you can’t really rechristen Fajr? That’s some light for you in our clouding day!



Khuda has long been a bad word with those obsessing about filling up Urdu diction with Arabic words. Khuda was in fact the first casualty to fall to this onslaught, as Khuda Hafiz became Allah Hafiz, not realising that Hafiz too should have been fixed, as the Arabic pronunciation of the word is Hafidh. Allah will also have to be respelt as All’ah (follow Junaid Jamshed). Maybe the likes of him, who when endorsing a certain brand of crisps calls Halal, (k)halaal and haram (k)haraam is already working on this one too.



I shudder to think what will happen when the lot comes round to fixing people’s names and their titles, and that too is coming soon enough. While people like me who have very Arabic names will only have to change the way we spell our names, i.e. from Murtaza Razvi to Murtadha Radhvi, my dear Pakistan will be in a bigger trouble. The letter ‘P’ does not occur in the Quran, nay in the Arabic alphabet even of the Jahiliya period. For starters, they might settle for Bakistan (and Dar al-Islam for Islamabad), advancing a similar argument that they do against roza: that the Quran does not mention roza but sawm, hence when a Muslim fasts, sawm it shall be. What they won’t tell you that even an Arab Christian or Jew (God forbid, Arabs the fountainhead of Islam, still have those people among them?), calls his fast sawm because that’s the word for roza in Arabic — Muslim or non-Muslim, Quran or Psalms or the Bible.



As for Bakistan, the controversy will only begin thence, because ‘istan’ is a Persian suffix, and totally unacceptable when referring to an Islamic republic. It will have to be translated and we may come up with something like ‘Al Khalissiya’ (of course preceded by Jamhuriya Islamia), and not to be confused with the Sikh demand for Khalistan (see how non-Muslims flock to the Persian language?).



Our national anthem, oh, my, my… too will have to be scraped because, lo and behold, except for one word in Urdu, all of it is in Persian. And the verse with the Urdu word in it tells us that the ‘system’ to govern Pakistan will be based on the ‘will and unity of its people’, and not of Allah. Astaghfirullah! And blasphemy of blasphemies, the national anthem ends with Saaya-i-Kuda-i-Zuljalaal (under the shadow of God the Majestic).



Now if Khuda is not the Muslim God, whose majestic shadow does our country seek? We’re in trouble. All Muslim Pakistanis will go to hell for praying this prayer in their national anthem, that is, if our puritan, born-again Pakistani Muslim brethren (and sisters) are to be held in the right. Do think about it.



Also, if they are right, consider this too: there’s more trouble ahead for our national leaders — dead and alive. The dead ones, especially the Shaheed among them, will have to be rechristened for them to keep enjoying the status of a Muslim martyr. Ms Bhutto will become Shaheeda Lasaaniya (Benazir, as in unmatchable) al-Bhutto or Bint al-Bhutto. The Quaid-i-Azam will be called al-Quaid al-Azam; the Shaheed-i-Millat will become Shaheed al-Ummah or (Milliya), and the Madar-i-Millat, Umm al-Ummah. What will happen to our Meeras and Reemas, Javeds, Jamsheds, Parvezes and Nasreens and Parveens, is anyone’s guess.



But it’s happening, folks. Even though Abu Bakr, Khadijah and Ali, the very first converts to Islam, did not have to change their names when they embraced the faith; nor did the many Turks, the Iranians, the Berbers or the Indonesians, subsequently. If poor Yousuf Youhana were not a Pakistani, he would have been saved the trouble, but it’s our obsession with religion in the public sphere that keeps telling us that names too must conform to a faith. A Muslim may not name his son Firaon, and understandably so, but there will be many Yazids among us for all times to come. Think about this one too.



Meanwhile, God, err… Alla’h, bless Bakistan.

KARACHI : Pakistan is heading towards severe water shortage as Indian government has decided to build seven dams on rivers running into Pakistan for held Kashmir.



Pakistan has absolute rights on these rivers, as their flow is towards Pakistan and under the Indus Water Treaty India is violating the accord, said a senior member of Sindh Agriculture Forum (SAF) on Saturday.



It is reported that UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) has funded these water-building projects with a sum of $700 million. SAF member said Pakistan should raised voice on international forum in order to stop Indian government to build water reservoirs on the rivers run into Pakistan.



He said Pakistan remained undecided to appoint patriotic and real water management experts to take up its case before International Court of Arbitration (COA) against India over construction of hydropower project in violation of the 1960 Indus Waters Treaty. The country is heading towards the worst water shortage in the next couple of years due to insufficient water management practices and storage capacity, he said.



Pakistan has right to oppose these dam projects besides opposing Kishanganga project because its diversion will reduce more than 20 percent of the power generation capacity of the 975 megawatts (MW) Neelum-Jhelum power project on the same river downstream Muzaffarabad in Azad Kashmir.



In recent past due to the poor handling of case with India as well as in COA, Pakistan could not gain points in favour of its case, only because of a team of jurists, not sincere from the start.



The Indus Water Treaty has now become ineffective as India was continuously violating all clauses of the treaty and Pakistan was not challenging them at any international forum by tacit approbation. Under the treaty, three western rivers, Chenab, Jehlum and Indus are allocated to Pakistan and India is not allowed to build storages on them.



A report by the Washington DC based Woodrow Wilson Centre described Pakistan’s water shortage as deeply troubling.



It said Neelum-Jhelum power project case in COA, Pakistan would face a loss of energy of more than Rs 6 billion every year.



The Indus Water Treaty with India remained just on papers. India had diverted Pakistani water and constructed more dams, which would further worsen the water situation in Pakistan.



The underground water level went down from about 70-100 feet to up to 1,000 feet and has been termed as a worsening situation. International Water Expert Engr Bashir Malik, who has served United Nations and World Bank as chief technical adviser said the cheapest and environment-friendly solution to water and energy crisis in Pakistan was the Kalabagh Dam, which could only be built by a patriotic and brave leader having the courage to break all the barriers in the best national interest.



Malik said Save Water Save Pakistan Forum would initiate a campaign to highlight water and energy crisis and their solution at national level for which they would have dialogues with the national leadership besides conducting seminars and conferences with the help of technical and legal experts.



The availability of water for irrigation purposes would face worst situation during April to June 2012 as Indus River System Authority (IRSA) announced around 21 percent water shortage in Punjab and Sindh during said period. It means farmers will get lesser availability of water for irrigation purposes in Kharif season.



He said IRSA and Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) concentrated more on releasing water for hydro-power generation instead of releasing sufficient water in canals for irrigation purposes.

[center][color="#006400"][size="6"]British police arrest two more Pakistanis for child sex abuse[/color][/size][/center]



LONDON : British Police has arrested two more men of Pakistani origin in connection with the continuing investigation into child sexual exploitation which led to the jailing of nine men in Rochdale earlier this month. Two men, both 33, were held earlier this week on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. They were bailed pending further inquiries. The men, who are from Rochdale and are understood to be Pakistanis, are suspected of abusing one of the five girls who gave evidence during the trial at Liverpool, which ended in the jailing of nine men. The court heard the girl was also abused from the age of 15 by four men who she knew only by their nicknames. Although the claims were not part of the court case, detectives have continued to investigate her allegations and now believe they have established the identities of those four men. At least one of them is thought to have fled to Pakistan. One senior detective of Greater Manchester Police said, “Our inquiry continues. There are other potential victims coming forward. The positive side of the court case is that people want to speak to us.” The trial in Liverpool heard the five girls – aged between 13 and 15 – were given alcohol, food and money in return for sex and were sometimes subjected to violence. The offences happened in and around Rochdale in 2008 and 2009. The men were convicted of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16 and other sexual offences including rape and trafficking for sexual exploitation. Muslim community leaders have already warned that far-right groups are exploiting the conviction of nine men who were part of a gang that groomed girls for sex to create a “climate of hate” against Muslims. asif mehmood
