Love Pakistan T20 Match for Peace! and Negative role of Pakistani Media about peace

No TV Channel gave courage to "Love Pakistan T20 Match for Peace at Peshawar"

After 8 long years, the Arbab Niaz Stadium of Peshawar featured a T20 cricket match in which many former and current national cricket stars of Pakistan took part. The stadium had a capacity to accommodate about 20,000 people, however more than 24000 got entry into the stadium due to the extra ordinary rush of the fans who had turned up to see their favorite cricket stars in action.

Those who could not go to the stadium had their TV remotes in their hands and were going up and down the list of TV channels in a hope to watch the match live. However, to their dismay, there was not a single national television that would broadcast this important T20 match being played for a great cause, Peace.

Whenever there is a negative incident in Peshawar or anywhere in the province, these private televisions of Pakistan do not waste a second in broadcasting that event live. No one invites them to cover that incident but still they do reach uninvited. Sometimes they even reach the place before the law enforcing authorities could, and God forbid if the law enforcing authorities stop them from coverage, these media personnel are ever ready to go into war against them. However, today when the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government took the initiative to organize a T20 match for peace, not a single channel was there to broadcast it live.

The KP government must have painstakingly arranged this T20 match in which big names of Pakistan cricket, both former and current, took part. These players took part in the match for one reason, to spread the message of peace. The crowd was holding play cards with different messages in favor of peace. However, it seems that peace is not a lucrative keyword for our media.

Geo Super, which always brags about being the first sports channel of the country and which spares no opportunity in broadcasting the Indian Premier League live, was nowhere to be seen. According to this so called Pakistani sports channel, airing a UFC match held more priority than a cricket being played for the noble cause of peace, and that too in the city of Peshawar. However, we can understand their situation as it seems broadcasting a T20 cricket match for peace was not financially feasible to this channel whose agenda is, business first.

However, PTV Sports, which is a state owned channel, also did not bother to broadcast this match. The channel was showing an old match of Pakistan versus South Africa while this important T20 match was being played at Arbab Niaz Stadium Peshawar. The motto of PTV has always been to show a soft image of Pakistan. But today, when a cricket match was being played in Peshawar for no other reason but to show to the world that we were a peace loving nation, PTV Sports was nowhere to been to project this soft image to the world.

The media of Pakistan is far away from development. We have a media that covers only and that too if that event will propagate more negativity and can generate breaking news. Ignoring today’s match is an example of it. Cricket is the only game that unites the whole country together, and today’s match was not just an ordinary match, it was match for a cause, to spread the message of peace. Can there be any important than Peace for Pakistan? Shame on our Media!

Some importan hihglights about the game are as below:

The match was played between Pakistan Peace XI defeated Khyber Pakhtunkhwa XI by five wickets in a peace cricket match that was played here on Sunday, SAMAA reports.
A huge crowd gathered here to see the first match that was played in the Arbab Niaz Stadium at Peshawar in last seven years.
Famous Cricketer of Pakistan and KP Shahid Afridi scored 66 runs from 19 balls. The crowd loved him and his performance.
Other famous players of Pakistan Cricket, including Imran Nazir, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Akhtar, Inzimamul Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Salim Malik and Abdul Qadir also took part in the match.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and other high profile figures from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and the ruling party attended the match in Arbab Niaz Stadium.
Salim Malik made quick half century while Afridi and Razzaq took two wickets each.

Pave the way for Pakistan to recognize Israel

U.S capital Washington D.C, which is the headquarter of Dajjal (man of evil deed), in the last Ramadan an Iftar dinner was hosted by a Pakistan couple. In this dinner influential personalities from the United States, Britain and Pakistan were invited. Now one thing which I do not understand that Pakistani are Muslims and taking fastening of Ramadan also, but in the event, British and American personalities have also been invited why? Whatever is the case, one thing was unusual about this event, and the paper was published by anyone in the world did not broadcast any TV channel. By this way many people of are unaware of the conspiracy. With the help of friend news reach late but reached.

US-based friend during video call on Skype, he wanted to expose something about this event during discussion. I was nervous know the details. I asked the friend to e-mail me all the material he knows about the event, and he email me.emb copy

Usually such types of events are common in Europe and the United States holding common people who come from different religions. According to the friend, the unusual event which encountered in that event. The Chief Guest of the party was the Ambassador of U.S in Israel i.e. Michael Orion. Who has no concern with neither with Ramadan nor with Iftar dinner?  This is a very dangerous discovery. The ceremony was arranged by an American based Pakistani billionaire Riffat Mehmood. Riffat Mehmood has access anywhere in U.S or somewhere in Pakistan or other places including White House without restriction. In Pakistan he has deep relations with the leaders of each and every party, such like Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari. According to my friend that this event was apparently a retro party but it has a big conspiracy against Pakistan. Because in the function beside the important personalities of Pakistan some other embassy officials stationed there at embassy also participated, i.e.  representative of Pakistan Army, Defense Attaché Brigadier and other high level ranked people. During Iftar dinner Riffat Mehmood Iftar directed the photographers not make photo of the type in which Pakistani Brigadier & Israeli ambassadors standing besides each other. It is astonishing that there were journalists who were present at the event but they did not publish the news in Pakistan news papers. Why not the news were  deliver to the people of Pakistan? Perhaps they have fear of death or either they have sold their senses.

My friend told me that the presence of Israeli Ambassador in the event did not surprise me at all but after hearing Israeli ambassador's speech, hearing then I understand the purpose of the conduct of the event. My friend do not told me the whole speech but he deliver me few important points/things.

Michael Orion, Israeli ambassador said that Pakistan is an important and influential country in South Asia. For better relations between Israel and the Islamic world, the West plays a vital role, and this I can say with full confidence, that Pakistan can play an important role to build confidence  between Israel and Islamic world. Michael Orion also told on Palestine issue “fruitful dialogues are in progress and meeting with Palestinian representatives which will unveiled a comprehensive strategy soon”. It would be very fruitful to establish peace in the Middle East. And that his country, gives great preference to Pakistan in the international community. The Israeli government desires to establish diplomatic relations with Pakistan, and I hope that the diplomatic relations between Israel and Pakistan very soon. It is a unique type of addressed which the Israeli Ambassador share with the Pakistani Officials.

Is Pakistan planes to recognize Israel?

The leaders of Pakistan are not Muslims?

Allah Almighty has blessed interpretation; “Oo! People, don’t make Jews and Christians your partner, they have very tight relations between them, and if you tried to make them partners then you will also count between them”. (Al-Maida, Verse-51)

If the Pakistani Government recognizes Israeli Government, then our country will come under victims of Almighty Allah always and forever.

So if something like that, the government should avoid it.

Wake up Pakistan...................... Save the dignity of your Mothers, sisters, daughters


Today I am going to write, right or wrong. I realize myself excited perhaps beyond the scope of conduct. For which I am sorry in advance.

Like me, many Pakistanis feels a big shock when someone cheated once and a while someone betrayed him again. The civilian of Pakistan seems just like that. When I heard the success of Nawaz Shahrif in the May general elections my hearten was sinking and I wanted to hurt my head with mourn. This thing is a certified and true that Nawaz has take success due to rigging and fraud in the election achieve the power of the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Few days ago NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority) proved the rigging in election with evidences. After achieving the powers of Prime Minister work has been started on depredation projects. The people of Pakistan are well aware of the achievement of the Nawaz last regimes. I agree that the majority of the people did not vote for Muslim League (N), but no vigorous protest against rigging/fraud from public side made ​​the public as scapegoat of the Flesher. The people who were around Nawaz Shareef in his last regime have looted the country and nation with both the hands and the public remains silent.

For the second time again when he came in to power then he started auctions of the Government organizations. The public were again silent, God bless Pervez Musharraf that he was as inversely proportional to these looters and he overthrow on them.

In the Five-year regime of the People's Party, they were sitting in the Assembly as friendly opposition in the friendly opposition. It was in fact commissioned opposition. Including Zardari when the people’s party looted someone they divide equal share among themselves. They remains silent and people had drowned, the country was push back with time to time. The people of Pakistan seen themselves drowned with their own eyes, and were watching the game of Condemnation of their coming generation and children.

Zardari in his five-year period of his Government printed five hundred billion dollars of fresh notes and hence it caused fifteen per cent in the value of Pakistani rupee in comparison with dollar. On the other hand the present Prime Minister in the initial period of three months printed six hundred and eighty billion rupees notes and depreciate the rupee value up to thirty-five percent. They show no loyalty with promises which they made before the election. Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) says: “those who do not remains on their words, they have no concern with us”.

If one compare the two governments of looters with the government of Pervez Musharraf it would be clear to the public, which of these three is best for the country and nation. When Pervez Musharraf toppled Nawaz Shareef Government, that the value dollar was worth sixty bucks. And Pervez Musharraf control the value of dollar upto the end of his tenure. After three days of Zardari come into presidency the dollar then give birth to its wings. In the era of Pervez Musharraf materials of daily used were in control rates. While in the periods of the two looters for the poor’s it became difficult to survive. All Pakistanis were not so unhappy, and the who do not happy in his 9-years periods were only the corrupt politicians. Pervez Musharraf did some good decisions and worked of a number of developmental projects, but the only mistake which he made was that “he left the defector of Kargal i.e. Shareef brothers alive and handed over to Saudia Government”. If they were “Hanged” then no one in the country cannot trait the people. Today Pervez Musharraf have not see this day also. However, the game is over. Now let’s talk about the civilian of Pakistan that why they become so anesthetized. These political rope-dancer are playing with lives and desires. The people of Pakistan are like the buffalo either they are eating or sleeping and they ho no interest in the Governmental machinery. The Government apply tax on each and every commodity and material of daily life like, flour, gee, tea, sugar, vetch, rice etc. recently the bombs of electricity & petrol blasts, and they made the people completely paralytic.

If the Nawaz Government completes it five-year tenure, so I think that ten million people out of twenty million will enter into the world of crime. They are trying to make please their IMF and the U.S. leaders for which they made the people to cry tears of blood. He proved himself like safeguard soap against bacterial germs. I'm surprised about the people how they have been used mercilessness but still does not budge.

Listen Pakistani brothers! That the Muslim League (N) destroyed the country badly in each of its period. How many times have you sold to the Jews buried under debt burden, your entire body has auctioned. Now they realizes that this is last time for Government just to clear Pakistan from the surface of earth. Pakistan's mothers, sisters and daughters sell into the hands of the Jews. Do you know that Pakistan's current incompetent government is recognizing Israel in the near future. If have no news of such type in your knowledge then you will heard such type of news in the near future. Such as Jews entered Afghanistan, and they violate the honor of Afghans women and generate their own generation from their women, by the similar way they will also do in Pakistan.

 The idea is to avoid to be safe from such type of problems, don’t obey the Government cruel tax reforms and came out from your homes to start a strike against these reforms. The strike must go to the homes of the cruel people and politician who want such type of reforms in law and taxes. If someone comes in between them Crash also them. So the honor of our mother, sister, and daughter’s would be reserved. Otherwise, everything else will be braided and then you will rub your hands, but nothing you will do then.

Malala is CIA’s Puppet Nothing More

{I have some special words for special people like Malala on special occasion of 9th October, 2013 as Malala day}

On 9th October, 2012 Malala and two of her friends were seriously injured in a pre-planed attack. In a few minutes the news spread around the world and it caused a stir in the American supreme houses. It seemed that this attack was not on Malala but actually this was on the American President Obama. As Obama was aware of the attack, and immediately he call for a press conference and said he condemned this brutal attack and that the America is ready for all type of Malala’s treatment. The press conference reveals that President of the United States is totally free, because thousands of miles away from United Sates in the Swat district of Pakistan for an immature and sixteen years old girl, he calls a press conference in one minute to condemn the attack and show his sympathy with the girl and his family.]

Obama is the President of U.S and even he has no time for Prime minister and also for our president but it seems very weird and meaningful that for such a busy president to call a press conference for Malala.

He is that President Obama, when the U.S forces attack on Salalah Check post in Mohmand Agency of Pakistan and killed a dozen of Pakistani Army soldiers. In-fact, this attack was the attack on Pakistan's liberty and independence, ostensibly the Pakistani parliament, the attack and shouted on U.S Army but nothing happened. Finally, the slave of the U.S. Government in the forms of our country leaders applicant to say at least very sorry for this incident that we were then able to face the public, but Obama replied in a press conference that you are demanding for apologize, and have no time just to condemn the incident because there some terrorist were hide. But for the attack on Malala they have very much time. Why?

What is there so special in Malala, which has caused such a stir in the world?

This is the same Obama who sword tried his best for release of murderer Raymond Davis and he succeeded to release him respectfully from our humiliated law and insulted rulers.

The United Nations is an international organization which does not get time even for sleep willfully. Every day around the world, hundreds or thousands innocence people are victims of a cruel barbarism, Palestine, Kashmir, Bosnia, Iraq etc. the occupying forces tyranny is in full swing. Up till now this busy Organization (UN) did not ever notice of none. But due to attack on Malala the UN Secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon has convened a meeting of the Assembly, this is only for the purpose of Ban Ki-moon to condemns the incident. As I told before, that this was a pre-planed incident that’s why the entire world of non-Muslim was alert. The hurry of Ban Ki-moon for the meeting shows that he was the age partner of Malala.

U.S Secretary of state Hilary Clinton also condemns the attack. It is, like former U.S. President George Bush and his wife, Lara Bush also strongly condemned the attack and she was so impressed by the bravery of Malala that she decided to write an article in the Washington Post about the gallantry of Malala. I am worried that why these busiest people left their jobs and fallen with grief for an immature sixteen year girls who have neither family background nor intelligent likezia yousafzai copy Arfa Siddiqi, and she is also living so far away from them in a very backward area of Swat. Well one thing is confirmed that Malala Seller's, un-conscience and cooked CIA’s agent father Zia Uddin, after whose death his role would play by his daughter Malala.

Are these people who are mourning the grief of Malala was the grief of the people, can tell that would they ever Woven sad for a minute about those thousands of innocent civilians who are being killed by the U.S. military around the world every day. No, never on these people this Dajjali Army will celebrate. The rulers and politicians of Pakistan has made the Pakistan so light and hollow, that the Madonna has also kept a close eye on this country. Madonna was singing and dancing in a concert at the time of the attack reported. She stopped the concert for a while and came out and release a press conference, in which she strongly condemned on the attack. When she came back in the concert she gave the name of Malala to her sing i.e. “My name is Malala”. Can someone tell me why Malala is so important for America?

Well it would appear shortly after.

Can someone tell me where it was written the script of the play? I'll tell you, this script was written in the CIA headquarters and its copies were sent to the actors in Pakistan. The Artists were Zardari, Raja Rental (Raja Pervez Ashraf), General Kayani and others. Pakistani people watched the drama but no one praised them but conversely they curse on them. Please consider that the Prime Minister Raja Rental along with politicians in the shape of large procession reached to the hospital. Pakistan’s Chief of Army staff General Keyani in a circle of other military officers reached to the hospital for fame and show. Thousands Malalas were killed in U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan Blackwater bombing has deprived thousands of Malalas from their parents. But no one of the above characters have not regretted with the affected families. The play was directed by the CIA director, and actors perform in such a direction in the director wants to. But there was an error with the director which affected the enjoyment of the drama badly. And the mistake was that there were two other girls also injured with Malala but not one came to hospital to them to ask about their health. The artists were also in hurry and they did not use their common sense, to go to their hospitals and also ask about their treatment. One actor whom the people of Pakistan have given the title of Raja Rental of the entire Pakistan of eighteen million people had been given in the name of Malala, and when Malala is married to a Jew, then the Pakistan would be in his dowry. Pakistan's rulers and politicians who are very high-level coward has given the Allama Iqbal's Pakistan to an immature girl.

For a movement also listen the words of the famous MQM terrorist Altaf Hussain (Adesh Kumar), he was  Speaking on the telephone from London in Karachi Pakistan addressed the scholars and the public to condemn the attack on Malala and his funeral must not be taught who does not condemn and denounce the incident. What fools is this raw pet dog, he is setting in London and give instructions to our Ulima/Scholars. His dirty neck had killed thousands of people in Karachi is this not a terrorism near to this coward man.

On October 12, our Qadiani Interior Minister said with his filthy mouth so filthy that their talks with the Taliban in Waziristan are not valid and operation in Waziristan announced at the same time. On October 13, the Generals of Pakistan Army started operation on Muslims in Waziristan. Nor a single Talib was killed neither caught in this operation, but hundreds of innocent people/civilian including women and children were killed.

As I repeatedly say that Jews and Christians is the Army of Dajjal (the man of evil) are legion and who are with them also the part of Dajjal army. As Pakistan's army and politicians, etc., as well as other nations chiefs and rulers of the Islamic world, such as Afghanistan's government, the Saudi Government, the Qatari government, Kuwait, Iraqy etc, all these are the part of Dajjal (confusion) army and U.S is playing the role of Chief Commander. Here in Pakistan a lot of people served and dedicated their live to promote education in this country, but both neither Pakistan nor America appraised them. The media of the whole world is prepaid and America is the buyer. Each and after every 2 minutes there is something new about Taliban, that Taliban is oppose education in Pakistan, but the real scenario is different. The Taliban have not much time to vast in such type of things, they are busy twenty-four hours in fighting with the enemies of Islam and Muslims.

Sixty-years have passed when the Pakistan separated from India, but still 80% of the Pakistan's population is illiterate. Is this also due to Taliban? The fact that education in Pakistan is so expensive that it is far away from the reach of a common man. All the energy of the public is spent here in financing of politicians to give back IMF loan, then how they can teach to their children? Ninety percent of Pakistan's population live below the poverty level is also because of the Taliban? These are the friends of disbelief (kuffar) and they say terrorist to the friends of Islam. They also forced by Taliban to have friendship with the disbelievers (kuffar)? There is no Talib involved in the attack on Malala, if there is some, then American Taliban group may be expected. Because, according to the instruction they have been restricted that the bullet must surpass the Malala’s head and if there is someone other around her they can indeed intentionally fire the bullets on them to make them injured, as watched in the drama Malala’s two friends were injured and Malala was absolutely secure. Funny thing was “shot in the head” and ran by herself to the helicopter. These idiots made us fool.

Similarly, the U.S. operation in Abbottabad was a drama.

Taliban, who are Islamic fighters. Their moral and behavioral characters are so pious and high that they affected even also the non-muslims and that’s why many Christians embraced Islam. The Taliban is a force of great power who defeated powerful states like Russia and divided it into pieces. Taliban are Momineen like iron pieces and the U.S. is also near to be divide in pieces with the fear of Taliban. There was peace in Afghanistan in the regime of Taliban. Not even the Afghan civilian but also the people of Pakistan were also happy of the peace. The people who does not happy with the Taliban performance were the non-muslims (kuffar). Malala said in an interview in the UK that now she wants to take part in politics, as a politician she wants to serve the people of Pakistan, and for this purpose she will get training from Jewish-Christian Politicians. I suggest to Malala, that not to turn back to Pakistan in her entire life, because here the people/civilian are sitting hungry of her seasonings for food.

Global Powers and Small Nations........................... (Part-I)

zulf2 copy

(A verse from the famous book of famous politician & writer Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto)

Since the end of the Second World War, a new political situation has developed which, perhaps because it is so evident, is not always seen in its correct perspective and its implications sufficiently understood. Up to now it could be said that the Great Powers are:

  1. The United States of America

  2. The People’s Republic of China

  3. The United Kingdom

  4. France

  5. Germany

  6. The Soviet Union

  7. Japan

  8. Italy

The traditional method of conducting foreign affairs in the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth centuries was by means of regional alliances formed to maintain a balance of power among the grouping of the Great Powers with the assistance of the smaller nations. Peace was preserved by maintaining this very delicate balance, and peace was disturbed only when the balance, at any given time, tilted in favor of one group or the other. In those days, the smaller nations could influence the policy and the alignment of Great Powers by indulging in various political permutations and combinations.


All this has changed today with the emergence of Global Powers which, in addition to having all the attributes of Great Powers in the classical sense, are at the same time much more powerful and play a larger role in determining the destinies of people all over the world. The emergence of these Powers in the last twenty years has changed the whole concept of conducting affairs of state. The task of smaller nations, in which category all the developing nations fall, in determining their relationship with Global Powers and in furthering their national interests has become more complex and difficult. The small nation which does not understand the new rules of diplomacy is doomed to frustration, a sense of helplessness, isolation and, perhaps, eventual extinction. As a developing nation, Pakistan must understand how to conduct its affairs in this new situation.


What is a Great Power today and what was a Great Power only a few decades ago is a distinction worth examining. In the imperial age the area of influence  and  control  of  a  Great  Power  was  regional  rather  than  global. Alexander the Great sought to conquer the world, but his world was a small one.


The Roman legions swept across Europe and parts of Asia and Africa, but there was more to the world than the lands where the mandate of Rome prevailed. Charlemagne held sway over Europe, but the political Europe of his day did not extend to very Far-East. Ghengiz Khan's hordes galloped across Asia and parts of Europe, but their conquests were of no lasting consequence to the world at large. Napoleon dreamt of a world order that met its doom in the ashes of Moscow. Hitler was moved by a similar ambition, but he too was driven back from the gates of Moscow.


From Alexander to Hitler, many a conqueror set out to subjugate the world but failed. Enormous territories in more than one continent did come under the yoke of one imperial Power or another, but not for long. The sun did not set on the vast British Empire, but even at the height of their power the British had to contend with the ambitions of other imperial Powers— notably, those of Spain, France, and Germany—so that the world neither fell under the hegemony of any one imperial Power, nor was divided by a pact between two Super-Powers. At the end of the Second World War, when the Axis Powers were shattered, the Allied armies had the world at their command; but, even before hostilities had ended, the conflict of interests between Allied Powers and Soviet Russia became apparent. The authority of the old imperialist Powers like Britain, France, and the Netherlands had diminished to such an extent that they were soon forced to relinquish their overseas empires. Into this void stepped the only two Powers which had emerged strong and victorious out of the Second World War—the United States and the Soviet Union. Inexorably filling the political vacuum, they pushed forward their areas of influence both in the east and in the west. In the west, they reached and confronted each other in Berlin and central Europe. In the east, the Soviets extended their influence to the Pacific; while the United States moved into Japan and the Philippines, and temporarily bolstered up the dying French Empire in south-east Asia. Since, traditionally, the United States had not been an imperialist Power in the sense of physically occupying foreign territories— except for the Philippines and some dependencies in the Caribbean—and since the Soviet Union, by reason of its doctrine of Marxism, also could not justify physical possession of foreign territory, a new type of struggle  emerged.  This was the beginning of neo-colonialism.  It no longer became necessary to control the destinies of smaller countries by any jurisdiction over their territories.


The main purpose of imperialism was to exploit the resources of the colonies.  Vast territories were divided and distributed among the imperial Powers, which then drained the resources of the subject peoples. With the end of imperialism in its classical form, only the system of exploitation underwent a transformation. As the colonial Powers withdrew from their colonies, the policy of divide and rule became obsolete and was replaced by that of unite and rule to meet the challenge of new times, although to achieve the same objective. The changed conditions necessitated a change in the method.  In  the  past  the colonies  were  exploited  separately  by  each  imperial  Power.  Now that these

Powers have vacated their possessions; it has become necessary for them to merge the resources of the former colonies into groupings for better collective exploitation. As the position of the exploiters has changed, so also it has become necessary to change that of the exploited. Previously the imperial Powers went separately about their missions of exploitation.  Now that they have joined together for their common advantage, it becomes equally necessary for them that their former colonies should pool their resources to facilitate exploitation. The new situation calls for corresponding adjustments both in the former colonies and in the former colonizing countries to make market conditions more suitable for exploitation. Larger markets generate greater exports and imports on terms favorable to the advanced nations of the West. They encourage increased consumption of goods and a more systematic exploitation of resources. They facilitate the manipulation of prices internationally. There are many advantages, most of them accruing to the former colonial Powers. The security interests of the free world are better served, but economic exploitation remains the principal concern. This is the inevitable adjustment in the transition from colonialism to neo-colonialism, which is why our independence remains a myth.

Misbah & Eleven to take a crucial challenge with world No. 1 Team (South Africa)

ISLAMABAD: After losing from Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe, Pakistan’s cricket team, known for its unpredictability, is all ready to take on the world’s number one test side (South Africa), which is surely predictable in dealing her opponents aggressively and with some quality cricket. Loosing from Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe abroad has demoralized the Pakistani Players and also the Cricket but the dream that is yet to come true is thrashing South Africa in Dubai (Sharjha, Neutral venue). South African Team and also the players are in tremendous form and they can cope in any type of situations. They are very strong in all aspects and can beat any team of the world, but the Pakistani Team is popular for its unpredictability.


On the other hand, confidence of the national squad is touching the depth, as it has always been, after losing from a very low test rank side (i.e. Zimbabwe test ranking#9). However, their biggest test will start on October 14. The Sharjha weather conditions and pitches are very much similar to that of Pakistan but the Pakistan team should not take it easy to deal with. The crumbling batting line up of Pakistan will surely be tested by the fast and aggressive pace attack of the visitors.
Pakistan is in very poor position because it had not take to play too much test matches as compare to South Africa and resilient South Africans seems like a roaring loin in test cricket, Pakistan should not take it be a piece of cake.

If we look at the past record, 21 test matches have so far been played between the two sides, of which, ten were won by South Africa and three by Pakistan while seen remained draw. Moreover, out of the eight test series between the two top cricket nations, South Africa bagged five, Pakistan one while two were drawn.
However, this is the time for Pakistan to bounce back to their form and give a tough time to South Africa. Some of the key players are enjoying batting including Captain Misba-ul-Haq, Younus Khan and the young, enthusiastic emerging talent of Junaid Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman and lanky fast bowler Muhammad Irfan etc.
On slow, and spin wickets of Abu Dhabi, Saeed Ajmal and Abdu Rehman together with the Junaid Khan and Muhammad Irfan could prove to be the lethal weapons for Pakistan. Being a spin bowler performance of Saeed Ajmal from the last few years is outstanding; the confidence should be rocketed high. All they need is to transform that confidence into a really good performance to make history for their side.
The seven feet one Irfan is a wonderful addition to the team having pace and extra bounce, however, it will be interesting to see how Misbah will use him in the test series.
“The team is a nice blend of senior and junior players but the exit of Muhammad Hafeez is beneficial for him and also for the squad to give a chance to the young blood,” said Moin Khan, the Pakistani cricket team manager.
The young cricket who performed well in the domestic season has a very good chance to perform well and prove themselves as the future treasure for Pakistani cricket team. Umar Amin and Shaun Maqsood seems very positive to their selection and they performed well in the domestic season, but now they required to prove themselves on international level. Batting department of the national team has always been a matter of concern especially especially against seam bowler like Dale Styne and Mone Morkel. The performance of some of the players has been praise-worthy in past series against Zimbabwe including Misbah, Younus Khan and Khurram Manzoor, however, it is the time that youngsters including Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Umar Amin and Adnan Akmal will also have to take responsibility and lead from the front.
“There should have been a batting coach with the team as we all know that Pakistan’s batting is weak and if the national side loses, it will only be because of her batting,” said former test cricketer, Zaheer Abbas.
He said South Africa was really a tough side equally good in all three departments including batting, bowling and fielding. Because, they have world No.1 & 2 batsmen i.e. Hashim Amla and AB Deviliars and world fast bowler like Dale Styne. The spin bowling department of South Africa is also not bad they have some quality spin bowler also like Imran Tahir.
The tour will demonstrate where Pakistan stands in test cricket as she will have to play beyond her abilities to defeat a team like South Africa.

Useless Advantage of rupee Depreciation

“Someone’s pain is someone’s gain”. A famous proverb I am quoting here just to enlighten a fact about what’s going here in our lovely country. Policy makers are trying to reduce budget deficit. For this purpose they are using different tools like increase in taxes, printing money and taking loans. The first two tools are reasonable and the last one can be dangerous. But one disadvantage with printing of money is it devalues rupee and as a result inflation increases. Same case is going here in Pakistan, inflation is touching its peaks and rupee is depreciating against US dollar day by day.

The rupee fell sharply against dollar in the currency market during the last month. In the interbank market, rupee lost 61 paisa in relation to dollar for buying at Rs 105.68 and it also fell by 62 paisa for selling at Rs 105.72.In the open market it lost Rs 1.10 versus dollar for buying and selling at Rs 106.70 and Rs 106.90. The rupee also came down sharply in relation to euro, losing RS 3.20 for buying and selling at Rs 143.50 and Rs 143.75.The rupee went down steeply versus the dollar due to some speculative buying of dollars. Since the new government came in to power, the rupee has lost over 7 percent against the dollar. The rupee has touched low level at Rs 107 versus the dollar.

Present situation of rupee have raised many questions and have badly affected Pakistan economy. Import products prices are increasing with increasing rate and people in Pakistan are suffering from this uncertain situation. Anyhow as we know every action has a reaction or every action has some good and bad aspects. Some investors in economy are going to better off. So, can anyone answer me that who will be happy about the deteriorating value of our precious and respected rupee? Yes there are some people in the economy who are happy with deteriorating nature of rupee. Economic theory suggests exporters should be laughing over this phenomenon. While being introduced to economics for the first time, we’ve all been taught that a weaker domestic currency brings down the international price of that country’s exports goods, thus making them more competitive and cheaper in global markets. The demand for domestic products increases and hence it causes to enhance our exports and increase in foreign exchange reserves as well.

On the other hand, imports get dearer. So over time an economy whose currency is dwindling cuts back on imports and boost up exports thus improving its external accounts and creating international demand for its currency. This is also a tool which policy makers use to discourage imports and increase domestic demand for domestic products as well.

But unfortunately in case of Pakistan’s major exports like textiles make known something is wrong. While the rupee is depreciating continuously against US dollar since the start of 2008 and more especially nowadays, the quantity of textile exports has not grown in cycle with the declining worth of the local currency. So what are the main reasons which restrict exports from growth? In textile products many inputs are imported from foreign and stressed value of rupee make them expensive which causes prices of final goods to increase. And hence no positive change in the international market prices of domestic goods which do not attract foreign buyers and exports remain the same. Second reason is political instability and terrorism which discourage foreign investors and compel them to shift their capital outside Pakistan. This affects negatively the overall output level and exports show no positive change. Third and most important reason is energy crisis; reliance on diesel power generators increased and cost of running a factory on a diesel-powered generator is much higher than electricity from the grid. This also results increase in final goods prices and domestic goods become more expensive in international market pushing away buyers and discourages domestic exporters.

On should give straight answer to such type of questions with “yes” or “no”, because here is flexibility to answer it as “I don’t know”. War is very dangerous word and everyone hates to hear, and that’s why one could easily deduce to answer to the question.

The 9/11 attacks on World Trade Center had introduced the world with a new phrase i.e. “War on Terror”. Several surveys show the doubts of American citizens towards the incident of 9/11. The American citizens are not sure that the incident is true such as the American media presents it. If the American citizens have doubted the incident how can they make us believe in their lies?


 “War on Terror” in general terms is actually the start of the Americans’ global campaign against the one who opposes her hegemonic strategy. Its primary purpose is to acquire enough resources to support its global leadership syndrome in view of the emerging realities. The other purpose of that event was to weaken Islam and Muslim Country and to hold them under-pressure and not to leave them to live freely. And that’s why in the current age, about in all Muslim country the economic and political situations are worst.

Historically, it is proved that in the global superpower confrontation, the weaker ones have options like “with us or without us”.

Viewed in this perspective, Pakistan does not have much option except limited and localized role in this war because of our Geo strategic location where we share common stance against terrorism for the sake of restoring peace in the region which consecutively helped us to bolster our “National Interest”. However, “War” on our own soil where small groups of preposterous miscreants seek to exploit religion to make the mainstream public hostage to their vested agenda is our own “War” that has been injected by the CIA and its affiliates through Blackwater etc. It was not laxity but people talk of open connivance of some of the functionaries of the PPP regime.

The way this war has been injected and ignited against Pakistan, there is a possibility that even after the withdrawal of US led forces; Pakistan may still be in the thick of this war. India has been and still is active against Pakistan through Afghanistan that Mian Nawaz Sharif keeps in mind before showing anxiety to normalize the relations.

How could it be somebody else’s war? They have raised weapons against the government and challenging its writ. Their malicious activities have made us suffer a lot from ineffaceable loss ranging from precious human lives to the country’s economy. Right today when the stage for talks has been set, TTP have attacked and taken out a Major General and his staff officer. After some days i.e. on 22.09.2013 a suicide attack took place in the Capital of Khyber Pakhtunka in the Minority Christian Church near Kohati Gate; under what compulsions and why needs an answer.

Despite all this bloodshed, some factions in our society are still in doubt to recognize it as “Our War”. They must think before declaring it “someone else’s war” because they will not be able to digest it if their own sons become victims of this war. It is clear that it is “our war”. But this is such type of war games which is playing on our own soil/homeland. It destroyed our economic, political and social structure. Now it is the responsibility to negotiate this issue with the miscreants by dialogue process. In this respect the Government needs to call the APC (All Parties Conference) quickly to draw an appropriate solution, and not to go worsen these bad situations.

It is a ray of hope that the new Government is keen in dialogue with the miscreants and they are in mode in bargaining position with them.

Extreme violence, social disruption, moral disgraces and economic destruction are the outcomes of warfare and if all these elements are present in any society then it should declare “WAR”. Therefore say it loud and clear, “It is a WAR and Yes! It is our WAR.”

We the Pakistani Nations need peace. Now we have declare it a “WAR” then we should responded it by war because both they are interconnected in all dimensions. The ruler of United Kingdom (during 2nd world war) Vanstone Churchill said a historic quote, “If u want peace, prepare yourself for war”. Preparation of war leads to the better strategy that ultimately results in the victory. Formulation of strategy requires priorities. The best strategy is to attack the enemy’s strategy.

Electricity and Petrol bombs ready to blast soon

It has been long time that Pakistan economy is undergoing many evils like terrorism, corruption and political instability. Every morning when people wake up, they look in to the headlines just to know either any new evil has come in or not. The most important among these is inflation which Pakistani economists try to overcome but in vain due to many reasons like corruption etc. People living in this country are unable to fulfill basic needs of everyday life. And hence newly terrorist activities (suicides, kidnapping, murdering, robberies etc) take place which weakens social and economic situations of the people day by day. According to an international report many Pakistanis are living under the poverty line. The poor are becoming poorest and the rich class is becoming richest. Anyway this is the area of great discussion and we should be restricted to our topic about the new evil of energy prices. I would like to share a short story in this aspect, when I was in bachelor, one of our teachers used to say that every economic theory and policy fails to work in Pakistan economy. I some time thought that our teacher is lying but today I accept that he was right. Behind every success and failure there is an invisible hand and in case of Pakistan that invisible hand is political virus which has become so healthy that it works everywhere if it is politics, sports, education, health or any other activity which are for social welfare.  In this regard a famous economic theory comes to my mind “Phillips theory/curve”, which states that inflation and unemployment are inversely proportional. It means that if one increases the other one will definitely decrease and vice versa. But in case of Pakistan the theory fails because both these evils are chasing the peaks and moving positively in the same direction. Leaders and economist are trying to overcome but they fail every time and I finally remind the famous saying of our teacher that every theory fails in Pakistan.

Nowadays the government is busy in preparing another bomb for blast before Eid-ul-azha. According to a newspaper headline, oil and electricity prices are likely to increase from start of October. The newspaper reported that 4 Rs per liter oil product prices will increase which will also enhance the prices of electricity up to 30% and people would have to face another tsunami of inflation. Officially it is announced that increase in energy prices are due to international market oil prices but the fact is, government has taken new loan from IMF and this is conditionality from International Monetary Fund (IMF) to trim down subsidies in energy sector. Our respected finance minister says that Pakistan economy will not be defaulted and we will return the whole loans on time and economic situation of people will be better off but he should think upon it that people living in this country will bear the whole cost and will worsen the economic life of people. This fresh decision of government will lead inflation to cross all limits. People are already hanged in many economic problems, living under the poverty line and this decision will extremely hurt them which will result to commit suicide. Every day we listen about unwanted events of murders, robberies and suicides which are likely to be enhanced by these two bombs. Instead of a cut in energy sector subsidies government should reduce their own expenditures and stop hurting people because they are unable to bear any new costs.

100 days tenure of the PML(N) Government

PESHAWAR: New Government of Pakistan (PML-N) under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif has just completed its tenure of 100 days on (19.09.2013). Before General Election, PML-N made huge claims and promises to the people that they will facilitate poor people of Pakistan by controlling Inflation, by reviving economy, creating job opportunities, by Tax reforms, by overcoming energy crisis, diminish load-shedding by constructing new dams etc.

After 100 days, it seems that the Govt: is yet to facilitate the expectation of people and moreover the International Monetary Fund (IMF) gave Pakistan a sobering assessment, saying its economy was at a high risk of deteriorating into crisis and growth was too slow to significantly improve people's living standards. The Govt: is seems totally fail and not serious in solving these problems.

The opposition leader pointed out that the PML-N previous five-year and present 100-day rule in Pakistan had only worsened the situation of the common man. "The administrative failure has led to increase in crime and other problems in the country”. The government has failed to control prices of eatables items and in this connection no steps are taken. About 62 percent rise in crime rate. A report supported these findings by stating that 62 percent of the people had lost trust in the present government for failing to address issues pertaining to price hike, deteriorating law and order situation and unemployment.

In fact, Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Main Shahbaz Sharif had already completed their homework with farsightedness before coming into power that enabled them to start work on projects from day one for bringing massive reduction in load-shedding and taking on terrorism with discretion and consensus. That is why it did not take the government many days to clear the Rs480 billion circular debt of the power sector besides reviving the badly stalemated Nandipur Hydel Project and accelerating the Neelum Jhelum hydro power project. Both will generate 1300 plus megawatts of electricity. In the latter project, the prime minister personally intervened and passed instructions for immediate initiation of work on the transmission or distribution system that would have otherwise taken additional two, three years after commissioning of the project.


All these efforts might not be clearly visible to some myopic people but the fact is that all the good developments experienced in the last few weeks in the form of APC and power sector reforms, were the outcome of incessant, intelligent work done by PML-N leadership and its team of ministers, experts and other functionaries.


However, the masses as a whole do possess the ability to judge their leaders given their (of the public) much enhanced prudence that was exercised by the general public at the time of election of their representatives. It was this public prudence that brought PML-N into power and it is the same public wisdom that has now adjudged Nawaz Sharif government in the Centre and Shahbaz Sharif government in Punjab as gaining popularity and recognition among their people.


Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency (PILDAT) has drawn a candid picture of political leaders’ popularity among the masses with credible public opinion polls in its Public Verdict (Survey) on Performance of Governance and Democracy in First 100 Days of Federal and Provincial Governments.


Of course, this credibility factor is very important because a number of opinion polls conducted by some other setups have not proved credible in the past but for PILDAT surveys. As a matter of fact, PILDAT surveys are scientific and logical in approach and are conducted in a transparent manner besides being focused on most current and relevant issues about which common people are most of the times concerned.


As for the instant survey, it has been brought to the fore by PILDAT on the International Day of Democracy that is observed every year on September 15.


According to the survey, 62% people have given positive rating to governance by the Federal Government led by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Likewise, according to the public opinion given in the survey, the Punjab government got the best rating out of the four provincial governments while the Sindh government was given the poorest rating. In this survey, citizens from all the provinces voted irrespective of their province of residence. The resultant findings show that 59% voted in favor of Shahbaz Sharif as the best performing Chief Minister, followed by Syed Qaim Ali Shah at 18%, Pervez Khattak at 9% and Dr Abdul Malik at 4%.


Some keen observers opine that Shahbaz Sharif is most popular in Baluchistan although it is usual with the provinces that the most popular heads of governments in their respective areas are their own elected CMs. And in other two provinces, namely Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, chief minister Punjab is a close second choice of public.


Most encouraging aspect of this survey is that the people of Pakistan have demonstrated considerable maturity and understanding of issues including inter-institutional harmony and foreign policy that they think have been excellently handled by PM Nawaz Sharif.


The PILDAT survey says: “The prime minister’s policy of seeking harmony with the armed forces and opposition parties and also with the provincial governments led by the parties that are in opposition at the federal level, has received the highest rate of approval”. The survey adds: “With the change of government on June 5, after the May 11 elections, more people (44%) are optimistic about federal government’s ability to address the current issues.”


In the area of terrorism too, Nawaz government got good performance rating as 46 per cent surveyed people gave fully appreciated its plans and efforts in dealing with the issue of terrorism. And in the electricity sector, 52 per cent gave it positive rating for coping with the electricity shortage.


As for its performance on key foreign policy issues, including relations with the United States, China and India, the government was given 57 per cent positive rating.


The positive performance rating achieved by the Federal Government on the inter-provincial harmony was 59 per cent. It also got 59 per cent positive rating on harmonious relations with the opposition parties in parliament.


For creating harmony with the armed forces, the government achieved 58 percent positive rating. Likewise, 54 percent people gave positive performance rating to the Federal Government in dealing with the problem of corruption.


In all, the people of Pakistan have once again reposed their confidence in the competence and prudent planning and working of Nawaz government in the Centre and Shahbaz government in Punjab. One can only wish that this momentum is maintained in the days to come not only for a limited period of 100 days but throughout the mandated term of the elected government.

UN Chief Shocked by Peshawar Church attack


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned Sunday’s “atrocious” terrorist attack on a church in Peshawar, and called on Pakistani government to bring the perpetrators to justice.

A statement issued by UN Spokesman Martin Nesirky said that the secretary-general was “appalled” by the attack, which had reportedly killed more than 75 people and wounded over 100 others as they were attending Sunday mass. “The Secretary-General condemns this atrocious bombing attack in the strongest possible terms,” the statement said.


Sept 23 (APP): The Pakistan delegation, under the  leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, will raise the issue of American drone strikes in  its tribal regions at various U.N. forums in the course of the General Assembly session, which begins its high-level debate Tuesday on crucial issues of  peace and security, the Adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, has said. During an interview on Sunday evening, Aziz also said that the Pakistan delegation would play a constructive role at the annual session and convey its message of peace to the international community. Responding to a question about the drone attacks,he said Pakistan’s policy was clear that such strikes are “counterproductive” as they lead to large numbers of civilian deaths that generate hatred among people.


Pakistan,he said,had conveyed its serious concern to the United States over its drone programme, and called for the cessation of the aerial strikes.
“Drone strikes infringe Pakistan’s sovereignty and violate international law,” Aziz added.
The adviser said that international opinion was also turning in favour of Pakistan’s stand, and hoped  that the United States would feel the pressure and end the drone attacks.
Aziz said that Pakistan will also speak about the drone issue during a UN Security Council debate on the Role of Small Arms in Conflict on September 26.
An All Parties Conference (APC), which was recently held in Islamabad,  had recommended raising of the drone issue at the United Nations.
About terrorism,the adviser said Pakistan was combating the menace under a well-defined policy.Pakistan had also initiated moves to promote good relations with its neighbours—Afghanistan and Pakistan.With Afghanistan, some progress has been made,but in the case of India,there has been a setback that he hoped would be overcome.
Meanwhile,a tight schedule awaits Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif,who is reaching New York Monday evening to participate in the General Assembly session.
The deadly conflict in Syria,the situation in Afghanistan,Egypt,Mali and the Central African Republic are high on the Assembly’s 175-item agenda.The Middle East diplomatic Quartet comprised of the UN, the European Union, Russia and the United States “will also meet for the first time in more than a year to support the resumed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
The theme of the annual session of the General Assembly is:”Post-2015 Development Agenda: Setting the Stage.”
The year 2015 is the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),the eight anti-poverty targets agreed by world leaders at a UN summit in 2000,setting specific goals on poverty alleviation, education, gender equality,child and maternal health,environmental stability, HIV/AIDS reduction, and a global partnership for development.
More than 130 heads of state/government will participate in the high-level debate,which begins on Tuesday and last till Oct 1.A huge security cordon has been thrown around the U.N.complex on the banks of East River as world leaders prepared to descend on New York.Checks points have been set up in various parts of the city of over eight million.
The high point of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif week-long visit will be an address to General Assembly on September 27, his first on the world stage.
Sharif,whose PML-N party swept the May elections,is expected to outline his vision for Pakistan and some of his foreign and domestic policies.He will also dilate on the efforts of the present government to curb the menace of terrorism besides its endeavors to bring peace and stability to the region.
In addition, the prime minister will participate in a number of other high-level events,including meetings on Millennium Development Goals (MGDs), sustainable development and nuclear disarmament.A meeting on education in Pakistan is also scheduled in which Malala Yousafzai will also take part.
He will also meet a number of heads of state/government,including leaders of China,Iran,Tunisia and Japan,on the sidelines of the General Assembly,and discuss various bilateral and regional issues.The Prime Minister is also expected to meet his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh.

Ahead of the General Assembly’s high-level debate,UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,speaking to reporters, said “This is a crucial period for global cooperation.Syria is the biggest peace, security and humanitarian challenge we face.Let us be clear: the use of chemical weapons in Syria is only the tip of the iceberg.”
“Next week, as world leaders gather here,I will make a strong appeal to Member States for action now,” Ban said, adding he would call on world leaders to uphold their political and moral responsibilities to serve,to listen,to invest,to respond to the rising and justifiable demands of people across the world for lives of freedom and prosperity.”
Diplomats here are also keeping an eye on a possible first handshake between United states and Iranian presidents since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.Iranian President Hasan Rouhani and President Barack Obama have sent signals in the lead-up to next week’s meeting of the world body that they are open to taking at least small steps toward opening a diplomatic relationship.

A four member committee has been formed to the probe the attack. According to the initial report, the attackers were between the ages of 20-25.

Animals which you can only think to be existed!


We have all heard about the flying squirrel and vampire bats, but I bet you haven’t heard of Yeti Crab, Zebra Duiker, The markhor and Southern Red Muntjac. Here are ten animals that you probably haven’t seen!

Yeti Crab

Also known as the Kiwaidae, this crab is a type of marine decapod living at deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps. The animals are commonly referred to as "yeti crabs" because of their claws and legs, which are white and appear to be furry like the mythical yeti.



Zebra Duiker

The Zebra Duiker is a small antelope found in Ivory Coast and other parts of Africa. They have gold or red-brown coats with distinctive zebra-like stripes (hence the name) Their prong-like horns are about 4.5 cm long in males, and half that in females. They live in lowland rain-forests and mostly eat leaves and fruit.


The Markhor

The Markhor is a large species of wild goat that is found in northeastern Afghanistan and Pakistan. The species is classed by the IUCN as Endangered, as there are fewer than 2,500 mature individuals. The Markhor is the national animal of Pakistan. While chewing the cud, a foam-like substance comes out of its mouth which drops on the ground and dries. This foam-like substance is sought after by the local people, who believe it is useful in extracting snake poison from snake bitten wounds.


 Southern Red Muntjac

Found in south Asia, it has soft, short, brownish or greyish hair and is omnivorous, feeding on grass, fruits, shoots, seeds, birds' eggs as well as small animals. It sometimes even displays scavenging behavior, feeding on carrion. It gives calls similar to barking, usually upon sensing a predator. Males are extremely territorial and—despite their diminutive size—can be quite fierce. They will fight each other for territory using their antlers or their tusk-like upper canine teeth, and can even defend themselves against certain predators such as dogs.


Snub-Nosed Monkey

Snub-nosed monkeys live in various parts of Asia and get their name from the short stump of a nose on their round face. Snub-nosed monkeys inhabit mountain forests, in the winter moving into deeply secluded regions. They spend the majority of their life in the trees and live together in very large groups of up to 600 members. They have a large vocal repertoire, calling sometimes solo while at other times together in choir-like fashion.


 The Patagonian Mara

The Patagonian Mara is a relatively large rodent found in parts of Argentina. This herbivorous, somewhat rabbit-like animal has distinctive long ears and long limbs and its hind limbs are longer and more muscular than its forelimbs.


Naked Mole Rat

This creature has a lot of characteristics that make it very important to human beings. For one it is resistant to cancer. They also live up to 28 years, which is unheard of in mammals of its size. It seemingly does not age much in those 28 years either. It remains “young, healthy and fully fertile for almost all its days, which for an elderly animal is equivalent to an 80-year-old woman having the biological make-up of someone 50 years younger.” The naked mole rat is used in both cancer research and the study of aging. Not only making it a bizarre creature, but an incredibly important creature as well.



The Amazonian Royal Flycatcher

The Amazonian Royal Flycatcher is found in forests and woodlands throughout most of the Amazon basin. They are about 6 1/2 inches in length and like to dart out from branches to catch flying insects or pluck them from leaves. They build very large nests (sometimes up to 6 feet long) on a branches near water. The nest hangs over the water which makes it hard for predators to reach.



Lampreys are a type of jaw-less fish that live mostly in coastal and fresh waters whose adults are characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth. They attach themselves to fish and suck their blood. Lampreys have been around for nearly 300 million years and their body structure has remained relatively unchanged.


The Maned Wolf

The Maned Wolf is the largest canid in South America, resembling a large fox with reddish fur. This mammal is found in open and semi-open habitats, especially grasslands with scattered bushes and trees throughout South America. The maned wolf is the tallest of the wild canids and it's long legs are most likely an adaptation to the tall grasslands of its native habitat.

People Republic of China issues storm warning as ‘Super Typhoon’ Approaches

The Chinese National Observatory has issued its highest level storm warning for super typhoon Usagi.

According to data from the Observatory’s storm tracker Usagi is now heading straight for the city of Hong Kong.

Experts say it is likely to be the strongest typhoon to hit the city this year.

Airlines Cathay Pacific and Dragonair announced Saturday they would halt all flights in and out of Hong Kong from 6pm Sunday, as Super Typhoon Usagi roared towards the city.

After brushing past the Philippines and Taiwan, the huge storm continued on its path towards Southern China, with forecasters predicting it will reach Hong Kong in the early hours of Monday morning.

A statement on Cathay Pacific's website read: "Due to the anticipated impact of Super Typhoon Usagi approaching, the operations at Hong Kong will stop from 18: 00 on 22 September (Sunday) through 23 September (Monday).

"The airline is monitoring the situation closely and will issue further advice on the resumption of flight services.  It is anticipated that disruptions will continue on 23 September due to the impact of adverse weather and operational constraints.

"You are encouraged to defer non-essential travel on Sunday 22 September to Monday 23 September."

In Hong Kong, officials warned the storm posed a "severe threat" to the city, urging residents to brace for strong winds and possible flooding.

The Hong Kong Observatory cautioned engineers and builders to secure scaffoldings, window-panes and other temporary structures in a statement issued Saturday afternoon. It also warned that storm surges induced by Usagi might also lead to flooding in low-lying areas on Sunday night.


China's National Meteorological Center issued a red alert - its highest level warning - as it forecast gale-force winds and heavy rain.

It said Usagi would affect the coastal areas of the provinces of Guangdong, Zhejiang and Fujian as it moved northwest.

Nearly 23,000 fishing boats had earlier taken shelter in Fujian province ahead of the storm, state media reported Saturday, while more than 4,000 people living in coastal areas were evacuated.

Usagi brought torrential rain and strong winds to the Philippines and Taiwan Saturday, uprooting trees and knocking out power as it barrelled towards Hong Kong.

The typhoon battered the Batanes island group in the far north of the Philippines overnight with gusts of up to 250 kilometres (155 miles) per hour, affecting communication lines and damaging crops, officials said.

"The winds are very strong. I cannot even go out now," Batanes governor Vicente Gato told DZBB radio in Manila. "Many trees have been uprooted and we have no electricity," he said.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Center issued its highest alert, with flooding recorded in four regions of the main island of Luzon, the country's most populous area, while several roads and bridges were rendered impassable by overflowing rivers or landslides.

There were no immediate reports of any casualties, although emergency and relief services said they were prepared for the worst with more than 100 families having already been evacuated in one northern province.

In Taiwan, some flights were cancelled and ferry services suspended, with schools and offices in many parts of the island closed, especially in the south and east, which were expected to bear the brunt of the storm, authorities said.

Coastguards cordoned off the beaches at Kenting, a popular scenic spot in the south, as strong winds whipped up the sea.

The defence ministry has deployed more than 1,600 soldiers to "high risk" areas and placed 24,000 others on standby.

Nearly 2,500 people had already been evacuated, officials said, as the Central Weather Bureau warned people to expect up to 1.2 metres (47 inches) of rain. Hotels and resorts in mountainous areas were closed due to fears of flooding and landslides.

The US Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center said that Usagi was packing sustained winds of 240 kilometres per hour (150 miles per hour) with gusts of nearly 300 kilometres per hour, making it the equivalent of a strong category four Atlantic hurricane.

As of 0400 GMT on Saturday, Usagi was still roaring through the Luzon Strait separating the Philippines and Taiwan, heading directly for the southern Chinese coast.

The region is regularly pummelled by tropical storms. Typhoon Bopha left a trail of destruction in the southern Philippines last year, triggering floods and landslides that left more than 1,800 dead and missing and displaced nearly one million people.

In August 2009, Typhoon Morakot killed about 600 people in Taiwan, most of them buried in huge landslides in the south, in one of the worst natural disasters to hit the island in recent years.

Hong Kong rarely suffers major loss of life as a result of tropical storms, although Typhoon Rose in 1971 killed 110 people in the city.

Benefits of Sweet Lime

Lime is a fruit of the tropical and sub-tropical region and grows on trees. These small fruits are green/yellow in color and oval in shape. They look very similar to lemons and are often confused by some. But lemons are sour while sweet lime, as the name goes, has an orange like taste and its citrus acid content is comparatively lower. The fruit had originally originated in Southeast Asia. Brazil, Mexico and the United States are the principal producers of this fruit. It is very popular in the West Indies and Central America.

Sweet limes are a great source of vitamin C. each serving of sweet lime has at least 50 mg of Vitamin C. An adult male requires approximately 90 mg of Vitamin C, while a female requires 75 mg. So, we find that sweet limes can meet this requirement pretty easily, providing it in a natural form. It is recommended for nursing mothers, as it will boost the regular intake to 120 mg at a go.

KP Police to be equipped with Helicopter

Peshawar:       Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police will be given first operational helicopter in November this year, which will be                                      capable of carrying 8 commandos and 2 doctors.

Talking to News Reporter on Tuesday, police officials told that the Helicopter will be used for conducting an operation in case of a major terrorist attack.

The chopper and its crew will be ready to cope with any terrorist incident and the district police officers will be able to call it at any time.

Officials told that the Helicopter could also be used as an air ambulance for taking the injured security personnel to the hospitals in case of a bomb blast or any such incident anywhere in the province.

They said that the police force will be able to give greater output with the addition of the helicopter service.

Moreover, they claimed that if they had this chopper prior to the attacks on Bannu and DI Khan jails, then the terrorists would not have succeeded in making an escape.

According to the masses of KP, it is a very brave step to bring peace in the region, and the also suggest Government to take such type of steps.

Terrorism and Nawaz Sharif

I never agreed but those who believed that Nawaz Sharif has learnt from his previous mistakes and now he is a ‘new ‘Nawaz Sharif were right.

Yes he has learnt from his mistakes and that is why he is appeasing all the powers-that-matter. Be it Judiciary, military read intelligence agencies, TTP, Media, India, America. He has learnt the art of ‘survival’. He knows really well the consequences of antagonising these powers, and now he is pursuing ‘responsible’ and ‘mature’ politics.

He started his mature and responsible politics from his home, by bringing forth Maryam Nawaz Sharif instead of Hamza Shahbaz Sharif and Asif Zardari of PML (N), Captain Safdar. He also takes both his sons, Hussain Nawaz on foreign tours and make it a point to introduce them to the head of states.

So he is a successful politician now. And hopefully he will complete his five years term. And I am confident that he will also win next elections. As there is hardly any other ‘mature and responsible politician’ in this land of pure who can satisfy all these stake-holders. So they all will try to bring him back to power as they did this time around and succeeded.

Nawaz Sharif and his mentors may be successful in gaining power but I have serious doubts that this will change the fate of ordinary folks in Pakistan. . So far there is hardly any visible change for men in the street, rather for them life has become even more hard. Dolor has crossed 100 rupee mark, prices of commodities of daily use, are at all time high, and security situation has become worsened.

The most serious problem that is shaking the very foundations of the state is terrorism. It is going on in Pakistan for quite some time now, but it is quite intriguing that subsequent government has not yet come up with a clear cut strategy to counter terrorism. Even this government is not doing much about it. It looks that government has not been allowed to do anything about it, or should I say, this is such a sensitive issue that government itself is avoiding it as per its appeasing policy. Ever since the government assumed power we have been hearing about a new counter terrorism strategy but nothing has come up yet.

Government announced to hold All Parties Conference over terrorism. But later on it backed out after the demand of Imran khan to hold a meeting before this APC among Nawaz Sharif, Imran Khan and Army Chief. Leaving politics aside, I do not think that it was such a bad idea. This matter is so sensitive that it cannot be discussed openly. The government could have invited some more people in that meeting as well, as it does not want to give Imran Khan much importance. But it should not abandoned it at all, as it is the matter of the very survival of the country, politics over this issue is not going to take us anywhere

The current wave of terrorism started in Musharraf’s era and is still continued unabated. Previous government neither had the capacity nor the vision to do anything about it.
Before general elections, people of Pakistan had high expectations of Nawaz Sharif and Imran khan as they were fed up with the insecurity and other problems.

However things have not improved yet. There is no letup in the terrorism activities; rather TTP and other terrorist organizations have stepped up their attacks. In Baluchistan particularly ever since the new government led by a nationalist Bloch leader assumed power, situation has really deteriorated over there.

It is too early to dub PML (N) and PTI as failure; however they still enjoy the support and confidence of people. So they should take terrorism as their top priority and do something about it on war footing. And perhaps negotiation is still the most viable options. There is no doubt that after the killing of some senior Taliban commanders, TTP has been weakened and there are reports about the differences within its ranks. Still TTP is potent enough to carry out suicidal attacks all over Pakistan.

Just before general elections, TTP has offered to hold negotiations with the government to end its activities but later on, it withdrew its offer after what it described as the lukewarm and deceitful attitude of the government. But that offer was too late as elections were quite near and it was not possible to hold negotiations at that time. Nevertheless the interesting thing is that Taliban had nominated Nawaz Sharif and Syed Munawwar Hussain as mediator or guarantor between government and Taliban, and now both JI and PML (N) are in government. JI is ruling in KPK along with PTI and PML in Punjab, Baluchistan and centre. So it should not be too much difficult for them to break the ice.TTP has once again offered negotiation, I think we should not waste this opportunity.

Drone attacks have helped TTP to recruits new suicidal attackers and gain some sympathy as well. Both Nawaz Sharif and Imran khan has criticized drone attacks in the past. However drone attacks are still continued. Drone attacks are no doubt a main source of fuelling anti-government sentiments, due to its collateral damage. But it is also a fact that some top ranking Taliban leader has been killed by drone attacks. It is a good sign that American Secretary of State, John Kerry in his visit to Pakistan has announced that Drone Attacks will end very soon.

Over the years, people of Pakistan have suffered a lot due to terrorism. If we really want to make Pakistan a viable state, then a comprehensive anti-terrorism policy should be evolved, by taking into confidence all the major political parties and civil society. This is perhaps the last chance for PML (N), if it failed to deliver, its fate would not be different from the fate of PPP.
