DID YOU NEVER LOVE BIN LADEN?

PROFESSOR ALI SUKHANVER

 

In this world of ever strengthening socialization, all time sky-rising graphs of education and ever increasing standards of moral values, liberty, freedom and independence are the terms which are very much talked of but very little cared for. The more civilized a country seems, the more involved it is in ridiculing all these terms. Today stronger is the one who has more courage and determination to challenge the liberty, freedom and independence of others. The 2nd May of every year would always remind the whole of this world how once a so-called civilized nation exploited the trust and belief of one of its faithful allies in the name of war against terror. The Abbotabad operation is one of the worst examples of human rights violation as well as of challenging the liberty, freedom and independence not of a piece of land but of the whole nation. The people ofPakistanwould never forget how their American friends played with their feelings and emotions and how they mitigated and humiliated all rules and regulations regarding diplomatic norms and traditions in the garb of the Abbotabad operation.Read More »DID YOU NEVER LOVE BIN LADEN?

How Obama fulfilled the dreams of Osama

 “The News” report by Hamid Mir

Osama bin Laden is history now but Al-Qaeda is still determined to make some new history. US officials have rightly claimed many times that Al Qaeda has become weaker after the death of Osama bin Laden but they cannot deny the fact that bin Ladenism is still a source of inspiration for the militants fighting from Afghanistan to Yemen and from Iraq to Palestine. Dead Osama is as dangerous as living Osama.

The Obama administration has foiled at least 8 terrorist plots on the US soil since the death of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011. President Obama can take credit of bin Laden’s death but he is not aware that actually bin Laden got the death of his own choice. It was his old dream not to be captured by enemy but to be killed by enemy and no burial in any grave.Read More »How Obama fulfilled the dreams of Osama

TERRORISM CRUSHES TOURISM

PROF. ALI SUKHANVER

Last month, I had been there inDhakafor more than a week and every moment was a moment of learning. When I was looking across the windows of my car at the sky-kissing buildings on the jam-packed roads ofDhaka, a saying of Bill Gates kept on resounding in my ears, “I always failed in exams but my class fellows always topped. Now the toppers of my class are employed in my company.” No doubt that great hustle and bustle and the lively hue and cry was a proof that I was somewhere in a land which is destined to be world’s tomorrow. The most important thing I learnt there was that tourism is the main source of bringing prosperity to a country; andBangladeshis certainly very much fertile in this respect. I also concluded that terrorism and tourism never go side by side; the presence of so many tourists in the streets of Dhaka indicated to me thatBangladeshis a land still safe from the menace of terrorism.

  • by

HELSINKI: Nokia has found a software bug in its Lumia 900 smartphone, its answer to Apple’s iPhone, and is effectively giving the model away until it is fixed, blunting its bid to turn around its fortunes in the United States.

 

Nokia’s first 4G phone, which it markets with the strapline “an amazingly fast way to connect”, can occasionally lose its data connection as a result of the bug, Nokia said.

HONOURING THE JUDICIARY

PROFESSOR ALI SUKHANVER

 

There will be time; there will be time; time to repent, time to regret, time to feel sorry and time to lament; but that will be too late. The people playing in hands of the conspirators would one day feel sorry for no one else but for their own-self, one day when they would realize that they had been brutally exploited against their own people, against their own religion and against their own land. That is the actual story of tomorrow for those who are now joining hands with the western conspirators and helping them out in destabilizingPakistan, ignoring the reality thatPakistanis the only country which has an identity as a fort of Islam. Today it is the most favourite activity for some of the so-called media analysts to ridicule and make fun of thePakistanarmy and the intelligence agencies ofPakistan. These are the people who feel pride in unfair bashing of the army just for the sake of their trivial and petty interests. In their struggle to please their foreign masters, such analysts are simply undermining the very Read More »HONOURING THE JUDICIARY
