PKKH Message to Nation “Takmeel e Pakistan”

October 31, 2009

3 Dan Qayyum, Sumayya Chawla, and Talha Mujaddidi from PKKH combine to bring you a message of hope, of Pakistan’s relevance in times to come, and of holding our own and being resilient against the many threats we face.

Pakistan’s time has come. InshaAllah we will rise and all those who have for 60 years predicted the fall of this great nation and have worked to destroy it, will perish.

Insha’Allah, there’s the brightest of futures for Pakistan, be a part of it. And there is dignity and glory in it for all. It is always darkest before dawn.

Also includes guest appearances from General Hamid Gul, Ali Azmat and Atif Aslam.

Takmeel-e-Pakistan is a movement that calls for the full realization of Iqbal’s dream – for making Pakistan what our forefathers intended it to be when they passed the Pakistan Resolution on March 23rd 1940. We have achieved the first part of this dream, the creation of the nation-state of Pakistan. Since then, we’ve been let down by our leaders, our politicians, and the subsequent generations who arguably became complacent and lost their way. Now is the time for realization of ‘Pakistan’.

InshaAllah in March 2010 we will gather for a grand occasion to celebrate Pakistan.

Is Pakistani Media Awake?

October 31, 2009

Sumayya Chawla | PKKH

Under the headline of ‘New US Policy to Raise Aid for Pakistan’ (DAWN News, Friday 30 Oct) is the biggest and most worrying shift in US policy towards Pakistan. The outline for this new policy was made very clear by Senator John Kerry when he declared that “Pakistan is not only the headquarters of Al Qaeda today but could eventually become the epicentre of extremism in the world.”  He went on to say that there was ‘virtually no Al-Qaeda’ in Afghanistan. He repeated the same old mantra that Pakistani intelligence agencies have used Taliban as a ‘hedge’ in the past and that there are concerns that they will continue to do so in the future.  After all the denials by the American Ambassador in Pakistan in the aftermath of the KL Bill, that Pakistan’s ISI was not being accused of funding extremists and terrorists, this ‘policy shift’ is indeed a very strange development. Keeping in view the reports from the US media claiming that the Obama administration is now convinced that no amount of troop surge in Afghanistan can eliminate Taliban as a political and military force, a clear pattern is emerging in terms of the real intentions of the US towards Pakistan and perhaps the real reason why the Afghan war was launched in the first place.

Hillary’s Rejoinder: Interpreting the US Trust Deficit

October 31, 2009

Faryal Leghari

The expected barbs were finally delivered. Not being able to uphold the brittle charm for long, Hillary Clinton gave in to the bigger temptation of voicing what she actually feels about Pakistan. Simply, that it is not doing enough to capture and kill the Al Qaeda leaders present in Pakistan. In voicing this belief, the Secretary of State has reiterated the position adopted by other US officials in the past. One that conveniently overlooks Pakistan’s past successes in arresting and killing scores of top international terrorists and thwarting major attacks.

This sharp rap on the knuckles comes after praising Pakistan for its untiring efforts in counterterrorism! What contradictions, that too in the space of three days. One may excuse secretary of state’s little outburst for having suffered three days of unrelenting criticism levelled against the United States. So what if she holds a key government office, almost second in importance to the Oval Office, she is human and may have retaliated in defence of her country, increasingly beleaguered in Afghanistan.

Why Is South Asia So Tense? India Must Rethink Its Policies Towards Its Neighbors.

October 31, 2009

For the past 63 years – the life span of most countries of this region, South Asia has remained in a state of tension. The eight SAARC countries* that make up this geopolitically sensitive region, where a major chunk of the humanity lives, do not enjoy the kind of friendly and harmonious relationship with each other, as one would have expected. This despite efforts of some well meaning leaders like General Irshad, former Bangladeshi president, who tried to bring the people and the countries together on a single platform of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) on the pattern of the European Union to help develop the region into a major economic and political bloc.

 

The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) was established in December 1985 and, according to wikipedia: is the largest regional organization in the world by population, covering approximately 1.47 billion people.

The first seven SAARC countries were enthusiastic about the concept and keen for it to succeed. Conscious that this model of cooperation between countries was important for their progress and deliverance from pervasive poverty, they tried to make it work but in the end it simply died.

TEJAS: India’s Continued Embarassment

October 30, 2009

A lot can be achieved in two and a half decades. For an individual, its roughly one-third of the average lifespan. For a nation, its enough time for an entire generation to come through. A nation can be transformed from a marshy swamp into one of the largest economies of the world – as in the case of Singapore.

What did Indian Air Force (IAF) achieve in twenty six years while consuming over $2 billion? the answer to that is Zilch; Zero; Nada; Nothing – except a failed project and a continued embarrassment in the shape ‘Tejas’. Tejas LCA (Light Combat Aircraft, also known as Last Chance Aircraft) has gone many trials and tests and there’s no sign of induction as yet. It has now been announced to enter IAF in 2010.

Pakistan’s own ambitious JF-17 project was launched in partnership with China in 1995. In just eleven years and with just $500 million spent, the JF-17 was flying in Pakistani Airspace on March 23rd 2007 – with the maiden flight having taken place much earlier in 2003.
