Ties improving Between US And Pak millitary

WASHINGTON: Chairman US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey said that military ties between Pakistan and the US were improving.

Speaking to the reporters aboard a military aircraft, Dempsey added that Pakistan and the US wanted to resolve some matters before the Nato summit scheduled for May.

It is important to remember that the Pakistani closure of the routes affect not only the U.S., but NATO countries and other contributing nations, Dempsey said.

The US General further said that he was not a advocate of breaking contacts with military to military relationships as they have taken decades to establish.

Mother Of Nation

 Miss Fatima Jinnah

 Miss Fatima Jinnah, younger sister of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, was born in 1893. Of his seven brothers and sisters, she was the closest to the Quaid. Jinnah became her guardian upon the death of their father in 1901. Due to her brother's keen interest, and despite strident family opposition, Miss Fatima received excellent early education. She joined the Bandra Convent in 1902. In 1919 she got admitted to the highly competitive University of Calcutta where she attended the Dr. Ahmad Dental College. After she qualified, Jinnah went along with her idea of opening a dental clinic in Bombay and helped her set it up in 1923.

Miss Fatima Jinnah initially lived with her brother for about eight years till 1918, when he got married to Rutanbai. Upon Rutanbai's death in February 1929, Miss Jinnah wound up her clinic, moved into Jinnah's bungalow, and took charge of his house; thus beginning the life-long companionship that lasted till Jinnah's death on September 11, 1948.

In all, Miss Jinnah lived with her brother for about 28 years, including the last 19 tiring years of his life. The Quaid would discuss various problems with her, mostly at the breakfast and dinner table. Paying tribute to her sister, the Quaid once said, "My sister was like a bright ray of light and hope whenever I came back home and met her. Anxieties would have been much greater and my health much worse, but for the restraint imposed by her".

Miss Jinnah not only lived with her brother but also accompanied him on his numerous tours. In 1932, she joined him in London when he remained there after the Second Round Table Conference.

When the All India Muslim League was being organized, Miss Fatima Jinnah was taken on as a member of the Working Committee of the Bombay Provincial Muslim League, and worked in that capacity until 1947.

In March 1940, she attended the Lahore session of the Muslim League. Fatima was convinced that the Hindus intended to subjugate and dominate the Muslims completely. It was primarily due to her initiative that the All India Muslim Women Students Federation was organized in February 1941 at Delhi.

During the transfer of power in 1947, she was an inspiration to Muslim women. She formed the Women's Relief Committee, which later formed the nucleus for the All Pakistan Women's Association. She also played a significant role in the settlement of refugees in the new state of Pakistan. Despite her old age, she continued to help social and educational associations. During the Quaid's illness, she remained passionately attached to him. After his death, she often issued important statements on important occasions, as a reminder to the nation of the ideals on which Pakistan had been established.

In 1965, Miss Fatima Jinnah ran for President as a candidate of the Combined Opposition Party. Even a conservative party like the Jamaat-i-Islami accepted her as a woman presidential candidate. Miss Jinnah's greatest advantage was that she was sister of the Founder of Pakistan and had been detached from the political conflicts that had plagued Pakistan after the Founder's death. The sight of this dynamic lady moving in the streets of big cities, and even in the rural areas of a Muslim country, was both moving and unique. She proclaimed her opponent presidential candidate, Ayub Khan, a dictator. Miss Jinnah's line of attack was that by coming to terms with India on the Indus Water dispute, Ayub had surrendered control of the rivers over to India. Her campaign generated such tremendous public enthusiasm that most of the press agreed that if the contest were by direct election, she would have won against Ayub.

It seems that the thought of doing a biography of her illustrious brother came to Miss Jinnah about the time when Hector Bolitho's "Jinnah Creator of Pakistan" was first published in 1954. It was felt that Bolitho had failed to bring out the political aspects of Jinnah's life in his book. Miss Jinnah started looking for a Pakistani author to do a biography of the Quaid. G. Allana was her choice. G. Allana assisted Miss Jinnah on the assignment but they parted company due to reasons undisclosed. Later both carried on their independent works on Jinnah. Her book "My Brother" was published by the Quaid-i-Azam Academy in 1987.

The people of Pakistan hold Miss Fatima in high esteem. Due to her selfless work for Pakistan, the nation conferred upon her the title of Madar-i-Millat, or "Mother of the Nation". She died in Karachi on July 8, 1967. Some historians indicate that the date of her death was actually July 2, 1967.

Following are excerpts from some of her statements.

Madar-i-Millat's Message to the Nation on Eid-ul-Azha, 1967: "The immediate task before you is to face the problem and bring the country back on the right path with the bugles of Quaid-i-Azam's message. March forward under the banner of star and the crescent with unity in your ranks, faith in your mission and discipline. Fulfill your mission and a great sublime future awaits your enthusiasm and action. Remember: 'cowards die many times before death; the valiant never taste death but once.' This is the only course of action which suits any self-respecting people and certainly the Muslim Nation."

Madar-i-Millat's Message to the Nation on Eid-ul-Azha, 1965: "Let us sink all our differences and stand united together under the same banner under which we truly achieved Pakistan and let us demonstrate once again that we can, united, face all dangers in the cause of glory of Pakistan, the glory that the Quaid-i-Azam envisaged for Pakistan."

Madar-i-Millat's Message to the Nation on Quaid-i-Azam's Birthday, 25 December, 1963: "The movement of Pakistan which the Quaid-i-Azam launched was ethical in inspiration and ideological in content. The story of this movement is a story of the ideals of equality, fraternity and social and economic justice struggling against the forces of domination, exploitation, intolerance and tyranny".

History Of Founder Of Pakistan

Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Pakistan, one of the largest Muslim states in the world, is a living and exemplary monument of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. With his untiring efforts, indomitable will, and dauntless courage, he united the Indian Muslims under the banner of the Muslim League and carved out a homeland for them, despite stiff opposition from the Hindu Congress and the British Government.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born in Karachi on December 25, 1876. His father Jinnah Poonja was an Ismaili Khoja of Kathiawar, a prosperous business community. Muhammad Ali received his early education at the Sindh Madrasa and later at the Mission School, Karachi. He went to England for further studies in 1892 at the age of 16. In 1896, Jinnah qualified for the Bar and was called to the Bar in 1897.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah started his political career in 1906 when he attended the Calcutta session of the All India National Congress in the capacity of Private Secretary to the President of the Congress. In 1910, he was elected to the Imperial Legislative Council. He sponsored the Waqf Validating Bill, which brought him in touch with other Muslim leaders. In March 1913, Jinnah joined the All India Muslim League. As a member of the Muslim League, Jinnah began to work for Hindu-Muslim unity. In 1917, the annual sessions of both the Congress and the League were held at Lucknow. The League session was presided over by Muhammad Ali Jinnah. It marked the culmination of his efforts towards Hindu-Muslim unity. Here, both the League and the Congress adopted a scheme of reforms known as the Lucknow Pact.

On April 19, 1918, Jinnah married Rutanbai. Their daughter, Dina was born a year later. In 1919, Jinnah resigned from his membership of the Imperial Legislative Council as protest against the "Rowlatt Act".

Until the publication of Nehru Report, Jinnah continued his efforts for Hindu-Muslim unity. The Nehru Report, published in 1928, was severely criticized by all sections of the Muslim community. In December 1928, the National Convention was called to consider the Report. Jinnah proposed some amendments, but they were all rejected. He finally parted ways with the Congress. In 1929, Jinnah presented his famous Fourteen Points in response to the Nehru Report. When he returned from England, he reorganized the Muslim League. In 1934, he was elected as its permanent president.

The Provincial Assembly elections of 1937 swept the Congress to power in eight provinces. After almost two years of oppressive rule, Muslims under the leadership of Jinnah, celebrated the Day of Deliverance at the end of Congress rule.

The Muslim League held its annual session at Lahore in March 1940. This was presided over by Quaid-i-Azam. The demand for Pakistan was formally put forward here. This goal was realized on August 14, 1947. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was appointed as its first Governor General. establishment of Pakistan brought even greater responsibilities for Jinnah. The refugee problem, the withholding of Pakistani assets by India, and the Kashmir problem were a real test for the Quaid. However, his indomitable will prevailed. He worked out a sound economic policy, established an independent currency and the State Bank for Pakistan. He chose Karachi as the federal capital.

However, he did not live long to witness the progress of the state that he had founded. On September 11, 1948, he died after a protracted illness at Karachi. He was buried in Karachi that witnessed the entire nation mourning over an irreparable loss.

Army Chief Meets US Commanders

Pakistan's army chief will hold his first meeting with senior U.S. commanders on Wednesday to discuss American airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers at two Afghan border posts last year.

The attack, which the U.S. has said was an accident and Pakistan claimed was deliberate, severely strained the already troubled relations between the two allies. Both sides have said they want to repair ties and move forward, but have made little progress.

Pakistan retaliated for the November airstrikes by kicking the U.S. out of a base used by American drones and closing its border to supplies meant for NATO troops in Afghanistan.

The U.S. is eager to get the supplies moving again because it has had to spend much more money shipping goods by an alternative route that runs through Central Asia. The supply line through Pakistan will also be key to trucking out equipment as the U.S. seeks to withdraw most of its combat forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.

A workable relationship is also important because Pakistan is seen as key to striking a peace agreement with the Taliban that would allow U.S. troops to withdraw from Afghanistan without the country descending into further chaos.

Pakistan would also benefit from patching up relations because U.S. assistance has helped keep its struggling economy afloat. The U.S. has given Pakistan billions of dollars in aid since 2001 to enlist its support in fighting Islamist militants, but the relationship has been plagued by mistrust.

All of these issues will likely be discussed when Pakistani army chief Gen. Pervez Kayani meets with the top U.S. commander in the region, Gen. James Mattis, and the top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen.

The meeting will be held at army headquarters in Rawalpindi, just outside the capital, Islamabad, the army said in a statement.

Prim Minister Son Invovled In Drug Scam

ISLAMABAD: A “drug quota allotment” scam worth Rs7 billion, allegedly involving prime minister’s son, has come to fore, Geo News reported on Thursday.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, heard the case against Ministry of Health's illegally allotting a quota of a bronchodilator drug “ephedrine” worth Rs7 billion to two Multan-based companies.

The case was filed by Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) to bring the culprits to the task.

The petitioner's lawyer, Abid Zulfiqar, pled before the honorable court that his client wanted to withdraw the case urging the bench to dispose it of as soon as possible.

This sudden change of stance raised the eyebrows of the Chief Justice, who couldn’t help asking the ANF’s counselor as to what was stopping the Anti-Narcotics Force from pursuing the case. To which he revealed that ANF was under extreme pressure regarding its investigation into the health ministry's violations of rules, while awarding a quota of 9,000-kilogram ephedrine drastically exceeding the legal limit of 500 kilograms.
He disclosed that one "Tauqeer Ali Shah" who claimed himself to be the secretary of PM Gilani’s son Ali Musa Gilani had been pressurizing the ANF to sweep the case under the carpet. In the line of duty, the ANF also tried to summon Ali Musa Gilani on March 12, but to no avail, he said.

In addition to that, ANF commander, Brig Fahim Chaudhry told the court that it was Secretary Anti-Narcotics Department, Zafar Abbas, who put a full stop to our investigation by writing to us that an important political personality was not happy with the probe.

Upon hearing all the details the court asked the ANF chief if he was afraid of the "VVIP" who was none other than Ali Musa Gilani and wanted to backtrack on this sensitive issue.

Brig Chaudhry, drawing strength from Chief Justice’s encouragement, told the court that his department would push the case ahead till its logical conclusion.

Supreme Court, later, summoning all the parties, adjourned the hearing till April 20.

It is worth mentioning that Ephedrine is a stimulant and a thermogenic and comes from the herb known as Ephedra. It is commonly used as a stimulant, appetite suppressant, concentration aid, decongestant, and to treat hypotension associated with anesthesia.

Ephedrine stimulates the brain, increases the heart rate, increases blood pressure, expands bronchial tubes, increases metabolism, and increases body heat. Because of the effects of ephedrine, it is a commonly abused drug. Oftentimes, people do not realize the harmful effects of ephedrine and continue to use and abuse it; eventually they will develop an addiction. Ephedrine is one of the most popular stimulants that is abused and leads to an addiction very quickly.

Pakistan Attacked By NATO

NATO Attack in Pakistan

Date: 26 November 2011
Location: Salala, Mohmand Agency, FATA, Pakistan
Latitude: approx. 34.5N
Longitude: approx. 71.0E
  • Pakistan closes NATO supply routes through Pakistan
  • Pakistan evicts the USA from Shamsi Airfield
  • Pakistan boycotts the 2nd Bonn Conference on Afghanistan
  • Heightened tensions between Pakistan and the USA


U.S.-led NATO forces opened fire on two Pakistani border check-posts stationed near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. According to the Director General of Military Operations (DGMO), Major General Ashfaq Nadeem, the attack was a coordinated NATO strike and used two AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopters, an AC-130H Spectre gunship and two F-15E Eagle fighter jets, one used as a "display of force." A MC-12W Liberty turbo-propeller aircraft was used in a Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance role. The check-posts were located 200 metres (660 ft) to 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) inside Pakistan from the border with Afghanistan in the Salala area of the Baizai subdivision of the Mohmand tribal region in FATA, Pakistan. The two check-posts were separated themselves by a distance of one kilometre on the Salala mountain top.
The attacks caused the deaths of up to twenty-four Pakistani soldiers, which included two officers - Major Mujahid Hussain and Captain Usman Ali. Thirteen other soldiers were injured as a result of the attack Both sides reported they were attacked first. The poorly defined border, as well as a history of Taliban fighters moving around the Afghan border regions, were cited as possible contributing factors to the incident.

Pakistan Claims

The incident sparked outrage and controversy in Pakistan, which termed the attack an "unprovoked and indiscriminate firing,"an "irresponsible act," and a "stark violation" of its sovereignty. Leaders of the Pakistani military establishment viewed NATO's attacks on the army check posts as intentional, pre-planned and premeditated. Slamming NATO's version of events as "lame excuses", Pakistan rejected claims of any firing having emanated from its side as a prelude to the encounter, saying that the soldiers who were manning the post were asleep and resting when NATO launched the assault at night.

Nato Attack Comes On The Heels Of Another Crisis

One of Zardari and his late wife’s trusted bagmen in Washington, Husain Haqqani, whose links to the US intelligence agencies since the 1970s made him a useful intermediary and whom Zardari appointed as Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington, has been forced to resign. Haqqani, often referred to as the US ambassador to Pakistan, appears to have been caught red-handed: he allegedly asked Mansoor Ijaz, a multi-millionaire close to the US defence establishment, to carry a message to Admiral Mike Mullen pleading for help against the Pakistani military and offering in return to disband the Haqqani network and the ISI and carry out all US instructions.

Mullen denied that he had received any message. A military underling contradicted him. Mullen changed his story and said a message had been received and ignored. When the ISI discovered this ‘act of treachery’, Haqqani, instead of saying that he was acting under orders from Zardari, denied the entire story. Unfortunately for him, the ISI boss, General Pasha, had met up with Ijaz and been given the Blackberry with the messages and instructions. Haqqani had no option but to resign. Demands for his trial and hanging (the two often go together when the military is involved) are proliferating. Zardari is standing by his man. The military wants his head. And now NATO has entered the fray.

Reaction Of Political Parties Of Pakistan On NATO Attack

PML-N condemns NATO’s ‘naked aggression :-
PML-N President Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday condemned NATO’s “naked aggression against Pakistan”. Nawaz called the NATO’s airstrike on Pakistani soil a terror attack.

In his message, the APML spokesman said these types of acts could not deter the brave Pakistani soldiers and demanded the government thoroughly investigate it to determine the facts. 

Asfandyar Wali Khan: Retaliation must be as strong as possible
Urging the government to react as strongly as possible against the NATO attack on a checkpost in Mohmand Agency, Awami National Party (ANP) President Asfandyar Wali Khan on Saturday said the attack was not only a breach of Pakistan’s sovereignty, but also a violation of the UN mandate for NATO forces in Afghanistan. “We have asked the president and the prime minister that the government should react as strongly as possible so that such incident is repeated in the future. Such attacks are not only against the sovereignty of Pakistan and its borders but also a violation of the UN mandate. The UN’s mandate allows the NATO forces to operate within the territorial limits of Afghanistan, it does not allow it to operate outside Afghanistan,” Asfandyar Wali Khan said.

Altaf Hussain: NATO strike on Pakistani checkpost deplorable
Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Saturday said NATO strike on Pakistani Salala checkpost was quite deplorable and such incidents were triggering hatred against NATO forces.

Zardari sahib appears as MCQ

'Zardari sahib' appears as MCQ option in 9th exam

LAHORE: An extraordinary option appeared as a possible answer for a question on a ninth grade exam.

The question, what is the system of life based on, listed Zardari Sahib as one of the options. The other options in the multiple choice question included religion, world and wealth.

According to the Punjab Education Minister the paper was made by a teacher from Dera Ghazi Khan and an investigation is underway to find out how ‘Zardari Sahib’ was listed as one of the options.

The minister adds that action will be taken against those found to be involved.

This was not the only question in which an unusual option was listed as a probable answer.

A question appearing in the evening exam for the ninth grade asked: Who is responsible for the protection of Pakistan?

The options listed for this multiple choice question were Allah, Gilani Sahib, Zardari Sahib and the Pakistani people.

Altaf warns bullies

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain categorically reiterated that his party did not want division of Sindh province, warning to

"so-called Sindhi nationalists who are trying to bully Urdu speaking Sindhis that it is 21st century"

In his video message aired on various TV channels, Altaf said hatred was being flared in Sindh under a pre-planned conspiracy.

"The so-called Sindhi nationalists and other leaders from the province have been using inflammatory and hate-filled language against Urdu speaking Sindhis, usually known as Muhajirs, and warning of dire consequences if anyone mentioned division of Sindh," he regretted.

He said the elements who think by using offensive and hostile language they would be able to scare, terrorize or subdue Urdu speaking people should wake up to the reality that it was now 21st century.

"If you would offer a hand we would shake it; throw a gesture of love we would accept it; act with kindness we would reciprocate it," he said but at the same added that 'if you would persecute us we would hit back; we are just like you, so we will imitate whatever way you act'.

The MQM Chief warned that if the population of Urdu speaking Sindhis one day got tired of hearing the words of peace and harmony then in that case even Altaf Hussain's appeals would begin to fall on deaf ears.

"I once again appeal my supporters to observe patience and remain in control of their emotions," he said.
He challenged the 'so-called Sindhi nationalists' coming up with all kinds of threats, saying 'we will see how much strength the aggressor wields'.

India Offer Pakistan

Relations between India and Pakistan have been strained by a number of historical and political issues, and are defined by the violent partition of British India in 1947 , the Kashir dispute and the numerous military conflicts fought between the two nations. Consequently, even though the two South Asian nations share historic, cultural, geographic, and economic links, their relationship has been plagued by hostility and suspicion.but now there is something better in their relation must going on and both the countries took steps for reducing differences.

India has formally offered to provide Pakistan with 5,000 megawatt electricity to fulfill its energy requirements on an urgent basis regularly which could be transmitted through Punjab without much delay.
The offer was made by Indian Prime Minister at the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) here in the capital city of South Korea.

According to sources, Indian Prime Minister Singh took a keen interest in the economic difficulties of Pakistan and Prime Minister Gilani thanked him for the offer. Gilani assured his Indian counterpart that Islamabad would reply to New Delhi through proper channels soon.

Indian Prime Minister Dr. Singh recalled his last meeting with Gilani in the Maldives where he declared the Pakistani Prime Minister as a ‘man of peace’ and said that the process of talks between the two countries on various levels is heading on a satisfactory pace and if required it could be accelerated.

Prime Minister Gilani also expressed identical views and urged Dr. Singh that their governments should be remembered for establishing endured peace in the region and resolving disputes which have made progress and development of the region their hostage.

Manmohan Singh Interview 

“I thanked the Prime Minister for making the trade concessions. He said he had worked very hard for this. He asked if we could supply power to Punjab. I said we will look into it. He then said you must come to Pakistan. I said let us do something solid,” Singh told reporters on board his special flight while returning from Seoul in the evening.

The Prime Minister’s remarks have come at a time when India-Pakistan relations seem to be moving upswing. Pakistan, for the first time, has been allowing transit for Indian wheat going to Afghanistan, as reported by this newspaper.

Nawaz sharif said people had better life before

Sindh people had better life 4 yrs ago

Nawaz Sharif

Pakistan Muslim League-N President, Nawaz Sharif Monday slamming the government for its complete failure in resolving citizens' problems, said the people of Sindh lived a much better life 4 years ago.

"Am I being expected to congratulate the government for increasing price hike, poverty, unemployment and loadshedding?" Nawaz Sharif lamented while addressing a big public meeting here, adding people were being butchered in Karachi everyday while the government silently watched the show.

He expressed confidence that his party would pick up seats from Sindh in the next general elections, resolving to once again eradicate 'rule of robbers' in Sindh as it had done during its government in the past.

As people attending the rally chanted 'Go Zardari Go', Nawaz Sharif told them that there had been enough 'Go Go' as now it was time to say 'Come Come'.

The PML-N Chief reiterated that he had entered into an agreement with President Zardari only for the sake of people.

He regretted that the Sindh Government took not a single step for improving condition of any area of the province, saying he felt the same pain for Sindh as he experienced for Punjab or any other province of the country.

"I had come for extending help to the flood-stricken victims of Sindh while Shahbaz Sharif dispatched hundreds of truck loads of relief goods," Nawaz Sharif recalled.

He questioned the participants: "What has the party, that claimed to represent Sindh, done for the province?"
Pointing to the Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, the PML-N President said he could not extend facilitations on the manner in which the government had completed its four years.

US Apology Reaction By Foreign Minister

Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar says an apology by the United States for the Nato airstrike on November 26, 2011 that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers would not satisfy the Pakistan government, and the attack demanded a reassessment of Islamabad's partnership with the US.

"The incident was grave enough for an apology not to be good enough," she said Monday in interview to a foreign news channel.
The interview was taken before she left Sunday with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to attend the Nuclear Security Summit(NSS)South Korea capital Seoul.

"This did require a complete re-look at the terms of engagement with the United States of America," she was quoted as saying.

Hina Khar said the new terms could help mend US-Pakistan relations, restore the trust and respect that have eroded between the two countries.

"We were partners for the past 10 years. Did we get the respect that a partner deserves? A partner which has lost many lives, a partner which has had huge economic costs? I think we must look at this relationship in a more realistic, in a more pragmatic manner, rather than a philosophical manner."

She said Pakistan is prepared to play a "crucial supportive role" in Afghan peace talks.
Khar rejected claims that Islamabad has links to Mullah Omar and can persuade Afghan Taliban leader to take part in the negotiations.

"If what you're trying to get out of me is if we have links to Mullah Omar or not, the answer to that is no. I think that the perception of what Pakistan is able to do is blown out of proportion most of the time," she said.

Chief Minister of Punjab Province Shahbaz Sharif also condemned the attack, though he criticised the navy for not acting more quickly to protect its billion dollar assets. He told the media at Iqbal International Airport that Pakistan has become a laughing stock in the world for not protecting and fighting the war on terror with any determination.

He also called for a probe into the attack in what he said was the responsibility of anti-Pakistan forces, something his Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) would not remain silent about as the "Karachi incident should open our eyes."

The PNS Mehran attack was a Tehreek-e-Taliban claimed that its force of 8-20 armed men had attacked the base on 22 May 2011, at PNS Mehran, the headquarter of the Pakistan Navy's Naval Air Arm and the most populous Pakistani military installation, located near the PAF's Faisal Air Force Base of Karachi, Sindh. In the course of the event, 15 attackers killed 18 military personnel and wounded 16 in a sophisticated terrorist attack.
The attack was the third attack on Pakistani naval forces since American forces killed Osama-bin-Ladin. According to the United States and Western intelligence sources, the attack was far more dangerous than the 2009 Pakistan Army General Headquarters attack, and was better planned and more rehearsed than the previous attacks.This contradicts the claim by Pakistan's Interior Minster, Rehman Malik who had claimed that the attackers had cut through barbed wire at a place on the perimeter where they could not be detected by security cameras, and that they were wearing black. It was the biggest attack on the Navy and its assets since 1971, and is believed to be the last major attack of militant mastermind Ilyas Kashmiri. The Special Service Group Navy (SSG(N)), carried out the counter-attack, which was the largest operation led by SSG since Operation Jackpot of 1971.

 Motive for the attack

 The Pakistan Navy noted Al-Qaeda members within its ranks. Raids were carried out and certain of the members were arrested by the Naval Intelligence. The talks that ensued between the Navy and the Al-Qaeda did not succeed, since the Navy did not release the arrested members. Warnings were issued and after the death of Osama bin Laden, the Al-Qaeda attacked the Naval base.



At least 15 security officials have been killed in the operation that continues on Monday morning.
More than 10 terrorists late Sunday attacked the PNS Mehran base on Shahrah-e-Faisal Road, Karachi. At least 15 people, including Navy and Rangers personnel died in the attack.
Towering flames arose from inside the PNS Mehran compound throughout the night.

"Bar-e-duniya may raho gum zada ya shaad raho
Aisa kuch kar kay chalo ya kay bohot yaad raho"

We are the nation of Pakistan can't forget them. Who live and die for the sake of their nation.They fight each day for us leave theirs families even don't care about there life's just for us. They didn't slept all the night for us because we can sleep. Heads off

Corruption after coming in power Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf leader, Imran Khan, has claimed that his party would halve the corruption in Pakistan within nine days after coming to power, Geo News reported.

He was talking to newsmen after a party meeting here.
Khan said that the demands for a “PTI Children’s Wing” were growing louder and louder making a case for the formation of one.

To a question, he said” Whether the party survives or not, we will elect all the office bearers for all the positions through vote, adding there will be no direct appointments”.
He also told the media that in Sunday’s meeting the party had settled all the "differences" and now it was rift-free.

Khan also revealed that the details of the members’ assets would be posted on the party’s website.
He once again condemned the leading political parties of the country for their silent agreements in looting the country’s wealth.

“ Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are one, they are on board Samhjota Express”, said he.

President Zardari calls for finish drone strikes

President Asif Ali Zardari has said that the Parliamentary review process of Pak-US relations, that was long overdue, was a manifestation of democracy taking roots in Pakistan and the elected representatives taking ownership of one of Pakistan's most important bilateral relationships.

He said that the effort had to be to work within the parameters set by the Parliament and not to bypass it.
He said this during meeting with Marc Grossman, Special US Representative on Afghanistan and Pakistan in Dushanbe on Sunday where the President Zardari earlier participated in the quadrilateral talks with heads of states of Afghanistan, Iran and Tajikistan.

Spokesperson to the President, Senator Farhatullah Babar quoted the President as saying that the government wanted to revive the relationship with the US on the basis of mutual respect and mutual interest and in the light of parliamentary review.

Pakistan wanted to re-engage with the US at all levels in the light of the Parliamentary review which, the President said, would be completed soon.
Farhatullah Babar said that the President also drew attention to the need for greater transparency in the relationship.

During the talks the President also called for exploring options for increased market access through preferential tariff for Pakistan exports to US markets.

The Spokesperson said that President Zardari also raised the issue of drug trade that was providing financial sustainability to the militants and called for concerned international efforts to curb the menace. He said that large quantities of opiates entered Pakistan from across the border and called for the US and NATO forces to interdict the movement of drugs which he said was critical for drying up the financial sources of militants.

About the drone attacks, the President said that these violated Pakistan's sovereignty, were counterproductive and because of the civilian casualties it even fueled militancy and called for an end to drone strikes.

The President said that Pakistan believed that peace and stability in Pakistan depended on peace and stability in Afghanistan and that Pakistan would continue to fight the militants till the logical end.
Farhatullah Babar said that during meeting with Grossman, President Zardari also drew attention to the energy crisis in Pakistan and said that Iran Pakistan gas pipeline line project concluded years ago should be seen as vital to solving Pakistan's energy problem and its economic development.

US representative Marc Grossman thanked the President for meeting him and said that the United States respected the Parliamentary process of overview of relationship and expressed the hope that the process would be completed soon and the Pak-US relations would soon be back to normal.
Those who attended the meeting included from the US side Ambassador Munter and other senior US officials.

The Pakistan side included Interior Minister Rehamn Malik, spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar, Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilnai, Pakistan's Ambassador in Afghanistan and senior officials of the Foreign Office. (PPI)
