Names of 30/3 Martyrs

March 31, 2009

“And do not say of those who are slain in the way of Allah, ‘they are dead’. In fact, they are alive but you do not perceive that life.”
Quran (2:154)

Chalay jo hoge shahadat ka jaam pi ke tum,
Rasool Paak ne baanhon mei le liya hoga,
Ali tumhari shahadat pe jhoomte hongein,
Hussain pak ne irshaad yeh kiya hoga
tumhe khuda ki Razayein salam kerti hein

Ae Rah-e-Haq Kay Shaheedon, wafa ki tasweeron,
tumhe watan ki hawayein salam kehti hein [listen]

چلے جو ہوگے شہادت کا جام پی کے تم

رسول پاک صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے باہوں میں لے لیا ہوگا

علی تمھاری شجاعت پہ جھومتے ہونگے

حسین پاک نے ارشاد یہ کیا ہوگا

تمھیں خدا کی رضائیں سلام کہتی ہیں

اے راہ حق کے شھیدوں، وفا کی تصویروں

تمھیں وطن کی ہوائیں سلام کہتی ہیں

The ‘Am-Brit’ Mess

March 31, 2009

42-20472113Forget ‘Af-Pak’. Let’s talk about the ‘Am-Brit’ mess in Afghanistan. The Anglo-American media won’t cover this. But we will. If America occupies Afghanistan and uses that country as a base for covert operations against neighbors, that’s not meddling. But if Pakistan, a next door neighbor, tries to protect its legitimate interests, Washington calls it meddling. We have no problem with Afghan Taliban. And we don’t want to see Hoolbrooke or any other ‘Special Af-Pak envoy’ stepping on Pakistani soil again. Pakistani government and military should shut down CIA stations in the country. Pakistanis don’t want an alliance with a country that is stabbing us in the back and supporting terrorists against us.

Ahmed Quraishi

You have to give it to the American propaganda machine. U.S. officials and America’s long list of self-styled ‘Pakistan experts’ are advising Islamabad to stop meddling in Afghanistan. But it is kosher for the U.S. military to travel half the world to occupy Afghanistan and that’s not meddling. Well guess what, Pakistan has more pressing interests as a next door neighbor of Afghanistan and it will protect its interests. Who says CIA’s interests in Afghanistan are more sacred than ISI’s?

Is Pakistan Really Double Dealing?

The US has ignored intensifying efforts by India, Iran, and Russia to expand their influence in Afghanistan. Washington sees Pakistan only as a way of advancing its own interests in Afghanistan, not as a loyal old ally.

President Barack Obama announced that more US troops and civilian officials will go to Afghanistan, and more billions will be spent sustaining a war against the largely Pashtun national resistance in Afghanistan and Pakistan. None of this will benefit Pakistan. In fact, America’s deepening involvement in what is now called ‘Afpak’ in Washington brings the threat of growing instability and violence, even the de facto break-up of Pakistan.

Dissecting The Anti-Pakistan Psyop

March 31, 2009

Read this remarkable expose by a renowned American journalist as he paints a picture of our ally, the United States, waging two wars: one against the enemies of its occupation of Afghanistan, and another covert war against Pakistan that involves a lot of psyops backed by sponsored terrorism. Chamberlin writes, ‘“Al Qaida” is an invention of the Bush/Cheney cabal.  It never existed before 1999-2000.  The bin Laden group, which has been dubbed “al Qaida” is a CIA fabrication, used as a conflict generator/force multiplier.  The incident that began Bush’s terror war was also a manufactured event.’

Zia’s Warning: Still Relevant

March 31, 2009

If the Afghans hadn’t been able to defend their land and force the Soviets out, what would it have meant for Pakistan?

We’re faced with a very similar situation today in Afghanistan. Another superpower is engaged in battle on the land which is known as the ‘graveyard of empires’.

The only difference is that the war isn’t being fought in just Afghanistan any more, Pakistan and Afghanistan are part of the same war to according to the new US ‘Af-Pak’ strategy.
