Balochistan Earthquake Victims Need Your Help!

October 31, 2008

The current confirmed death toll is over 300 and thousands of people have been injured. Thousands of homes have been completely destroyed leaving at least 15,000 people homeless and on the streets in extremely harsh cold weather.

Rescue and aid efforts have been slow in reaching the thousands of people affected by the earthquake. The primary requirement is of food and shelter from the intense cold weather for the survivors, burial of the dead, medicines and supplies as well as doctors and volunteers.

The 2005 earthquake saw the nation united as one, in helping the victims of the disaster with their generous assistance. A similar effort is needed on an urgent basis at all levels.

We have a team on the ground in the affected areas, working round the clock providing food, shelter, and mobile hospitals to the victims of this tragedy and we would greatly appreciate your assistance.

You can help!

If you are a doctor who can travel on short notice, or if you wish to help as a volunteer or with supplies/medicines/tents and other basic necessities, or even monetarily, please call +92 321 8950589 or email earthquake.balochistan@gmail.com for more information on our operation and how you can help.

Please pass this message on. May Allah protect our brothers and sisters, grant them ‘sabr’ at this difficult time, and accept our honest gesture. Aameen.

Private Weddings in the President House

October 30, 2008

Not satisfied with the massive economic and security mess they’ve turned Pakistan into, here are the latest shenanigans of our ‘leadership’ which seems hellbent on proving themselves and the most corrupt and incompetent bunch ever to be in charge of Pakistan. The President House, Islamabad is now being used for private weddings.

They’re turning Pakistan into a laughing stock by the day, and if this cancer isn’t removed sharpish, it’ll take us all down with it. Democracy the best revenge, indeed. Lets see if the ‘free media’ picks this one up.

Democracy – The Best Revenge?!

October 30, 2008

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—With Pakistan facing severe food shortage and economic crisis within, India has launched an economic war of its own against its arch rival State. Blocking Pakistani waters at this critical juncture would mean severe food and water shortage in Pakistan in the coming months and increase in provincial and social disharmony.

If the harvesting season passes and then India release water, even then it would be an act of war as time critical harvesting season would have passed making it impossible for farmers to sow their fields. India is obviously using these delay tactics but the PPP government in Islamabad is too naïve or corrupt to even take up the issue with India seriously.

On the other hand, the PPP government has given in totally to the Indian demand of initiating trade and business across the Loc without discussing the long standing issue of Kashmir dispute. On the surface, trade between two divided Kashmir regions is a positive move and would allow Kashmiris in Indian held region to have closer trade and business interests with Pakistan. But if this move is being done at the cost of Kashmir dispute resolution and without seriously confronting the Indians on water blockage, then this is a betrayal and not progress.

Is Pakistan Doomed

October 29, 2008

A bright spot in this gloomy picture is emerging. Today’s third- and fourth-generation Pakistanis are the most assimilated and integrated generation of this nation. They are more intermarried, intermixed, cosmopolitan and articulate than their fathers and grandfathers. This generation transcends ethnic and linguistic fault lines. It brings together the best of what a Pakistani represents: A great history and a promising future. The rise of this generation presents a natural and a unique opportunity for change.

Arrested Militants Name RAW / Kabul

October 26, 2008

The gang of three persons has brazenly admitted that they belong to a group of persons who had been deputed to ‘destabilize democratic Pakistan’ in order to create a confrontation with the Pakistani military. They were told to carry out their activities under the pretext of ‘enforcement of Shariah’ in the country.

Operators of the Federal Investigations Agency [FIA], a Pakistani intelligence agency, working beyond the call of their duty, came into contact with a source ready for a tip-off against a reward. The tip-off led to the arrest of Khurram Ishtiaq, Ghulam Mustafa and Shamim. The persons had been working under Qari Hussain, second-in-command to Baitullah Mehsud. Continue Reading

‘No Threat From India’ Mr 10%?

Its a shame that we have traitors and enemies of Pakistan right in our parliament and President House. Here’s hoping that their fate will not be much different from Najibullah’s across our western border.

More Zionist / NeoCon Propaganda

October 22, 2008

Recieved a free copy of this with the newspaper a couple of days ago:

If you live in an American swing state you may have received a copy of ‘Obsession’ in your Sunday paper. ‘Obsession’ isn’t a perfume: it’s a documentary about ‘radical Islam’s war against the West’. In the last two weeks of September, 28 million copies of the film were enclosed as an advertising supplement in 74 newspapers, including the New York Times and the Chronicle of Higher Education. ‘The threat of Radical Islam is the most important issue facing us today,’ the sleeve announces. ‘It’s our responsibility to ensure we can make an informed vote in November.’ The Clarion Fund, the supplement’s sponsor, doesn’t explicitly endorse McCain, so as not to jeopardise its tax-exempt status, but the message is clear enough, and its circulation just happened to coincide with Obama’s leap in the polls.
