Dan Qayyum | PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com EXCLUSIVE

CENTURION – Within minutes of Pakistan’s last ball defeat at the hands of Australia at the Centurion ground in South Africa, Indian Minister for Extrenal Affairs S M Krishna has sensationally pointed the finger at Kashmir-based militant group ‘Lashkar-e-Tayba’ which it alleges is supported by Pakistan’s InterServices Intelligence Agency (ISI).

‘We know there is no way Pakistan would have lost to Australia after being in a winning position towards the end. We have intercepted calls from Lashkar-e-Tayba masterminds made to the Pakistan dressing room in those last few minutes of the game. You can see why Misbah-ul-Haq went down and asked the physio came out with the message that they have to lose the game.’ He remarked.

Earlier, Home Affairs minister P Chidambaram had talked of Lashkar-e-Tayba using earnings from betting on allegedly fixed matches to fund what he called ‘Terror attacks’ on Indian soil.

Kerry-Lugar Bill To Further Pressurize Pakistan

September 28, 2009

Shaheen Sehbai

WASHINGTON: Pakistani officials, diplomats and spokespersons do not consider the otherwise mind-boggling conditions included in the just passed Kerry-Lugar aid bill in the US Senate as of any serious significance but they are not prepared to state on record that all Pakistani stakeholders, the Army, the intelligence agencies, the people of Pakistan, have been taken into confidence, or even told before hand, that such conditions were being imposed.

The Secretary of State has to issue a certificate on these sensitive subjects before each instalment of the US aid is to be disbursed and Pakistanis are wondering how all, or any, of these conditions will be met, if at all.

Obama’s Afghan Dilemma

September 28, 2009

42-22288581

One thing though should be expressly clear: there is no military victory in Afghanistan. Success will be in leaving behind a stable Afghanistan minus Al Qaeda, but not minus what time has begun to define as the Taliban

Obama’s Afghan policy is in a flux. Having inherited it as work in progress, he ended up owning it by default. Of the two, Iraq and Afghanistan, he was committed to retrenching on Iraq, but had to stay the course on Afghanistan.

The difficulty with the ‘war on terror’ has been that it has always remained too open ended. While Bush’s own war was Iraq, he tended to be only gung-ho as a strategy in Afghanistan, never really defining the exact objectives. As a result, in Washington, it is back to the drawing board.

The Onslaught of Indian Media.

September 28, 2009

Saadullah Aleem | PKKH

It is time to shed some light on the electronic media of our neighbouring country and the effects that it has on our society especially on our youth and the anti-Islamic and anti-Pakistani feelings that it is exciting.

For many years, Indians have been using their media to despoil Pakistani society by injecting their own culture into it. This is quite dangerous as both of these countries, Pakistan and India, share a somewhat similar culture and language. Thus, some Pakistanis end up thinking that there is little or no difference between these two nations. Tune into any Pakistani radio station on a Saturday evening and you will find almost all of them playing tunes from Indian flicks that they term as ‘Desi’. And that’s not it, even our own “Free Media” is helping them out by copying the styles of their TV shows and Dramas, abolishing the decency that the Pakistani telefilm industry(especially PTV) possessed for years.

September 28, 2009

An American, who survived the terrorist attack in the Indian city of Mumbai last year, resisted hate in favour of curiosity to discover and learn to embrace Islam, according to a media report.
