AFGHANISTAN IN TROUBLE

ALI SUKHANVER

Pakistan has closed its border with Afghanistan after the increasing tension between the two countries. According to Al-Jazeera the so-called Durand Line frontier drawn by the British in 1896 and disputed by Afghanistan has been witnessing unpleasant reaction of the Afghan government since Pakistan began patrolling along it last year. This 2,600 km long border line has ever been under severe tension. The situation along this border became more tense when on 5th of this May Afghan border forces opened fire on Pakistan’s security personnel guarding a census team in Baluchistan’s Chaman area. At least nine people were killed and over 40 others injured as a result of this firing. Pakistan’s military’s media wing said narrating the details that  Afghan Border Police had been creating hurdles in conduct of census in divided villages of Killi Luqman and Killi Jahangir in Chaman area on Pakistani side of the border since April 30. After this grave loss the security forces of Pakistan had to pay back in the same coin. Media says more than 50 Afghan security personnel were killed and another 100 injured. However, the Inspector General Frontier Corps Balochistan Maj. Gen Nadeem Anjum said, “We are not happy over their losses since they are our Muslim brothers”. A senior officer of the Pakistan Army General Amir Riaz said talking to the media reporters on the same issue that the situation will remain the same “until Afghanistan changes its behaviour”. He further said that Afghanistan would not benefit from such attacks in any way and that the Afghan government should be ashamed of such acts.Read More »AFGHANISTAN IN TROUBLE

CYBER CORRUPTION

ALI SUKHANVER

According to various Bangladeshi newspapers, the cabinet of Bangladesh has given a letter to Telecom ministry stating that Facebook is ‘Diminishing the working capabilities of Youth’ and also ‘affecting the students’. Reports say that the government of Bangladesh is planning to put a limited ban on Facebook, the most popular social-media gadget. If this ban imposed successfully, Bangladesh would be the first country in South-Asian region which took the misuse of social media seriously. God knows better how the Telecom Ministry would spare time to read this letter because this ministry is already too much Read More »CYBER CORRUPTION

HARD DAYS FOR ASHRAF GHANI

Everyone knows that Ashraf Ghani’s success in the presidential elections was warmly welcomed rather celebrated in Pakistan. The people in Pakistan were of the opinion that Ashraf Ghani would try his utmost to bring these brotherly countries more close to each other but Mr. Ghani did altogether otherwise. Pak-Afghan relationship is at present facing the ever-worst situation and this all is the handiwork of the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. He is so unfortunate that he could not bring peace even to his own country. International analysts are pointing towards a rapidly increasing violence in Afghanistan and to the fast growing Taliban influence as well. At so many places the Talban are directly running the government affairs instead of the Afghan government. There is a very visible political conflict and turmoil in spite of Afghan NUG’s claim of peace in the country. In the beginning days of Ashraf Ghani government a very clear situation of conflict and confrontation was being noticed between Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah but now the first Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum has also joined this war as the third party. The Parliament is hosting different ethnic rivalries and as a result of this rivalry seven ministers have yet been impeached. The foreign minister Mr. Salahuddin Rabbani was also among the impeached ones. There is a situation of political anarchy and chaos in Afghanistan and the leaders are washing their ‘dirty linen’ in the public by accusing one another of nepotism and ethnicity. Analysts are of the opinion that after Trump’s victory in the US elections Afghan political leaders are under pressure and stress because of the expected change in US policy towards Afghanistan. The Washington Post said commenting upon the fears and apprehensions of the Afghan leaders, ‘The tensions have resurfaced just as the United States, a mainstay of Afghan defense and economic aid for years, has elected a new president with different priorities and no investment in Afghanistan’s success. Many Afghans fear President-elect Donald Trump may withdraw the 10,000 U.S. troops that President Obama kept here to help Afghan security forces take over the anti-insurgent fight.’Read More »HARD DAYS FOR ASHRAF GHANI

ATTENTION MR.HOME MINISTER

According to the Times of India, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh has warned Pakistan of breaking into ten pieces. While speaking to a gathering in Indian-held Kashmir a few days back, he said, “Pakistan has been divided into 2 countries in 1971. If it does not stop cross-border terrorism, it will soon be in 10 pieces.” It is possible that this statement of Rajnath Singh might have elevated his political status within a limited circle but for Pakistan such foolish statements have no importance or value. It has been a very old tradition of the Indian politicians, particularly of those belonging to the BJP to blame, threat and to warn Pakistan because they are misguided by their misconception that by doing so they can win the hearts of the Indian people. It is a day-light fact that there is no hatred for Pakistan among the Indian people. Every year so many delegates from India come to visit Pakistan and so many go there from this side and no one ever complains of any misbehave or maltreatment in either country. Different businessmen from Pakistan have very close business relations with the Indian business community and there are so many who are engaged in joint trade ventures in other parts of the world too. India is a country of more than 138,188,240 Muslims according to India’s 2011census. This number equates to roughly 13.4 percent of the country’s population which at the time was over 1 billion people. Even today Islam is the second most popular religion in India. So it is almost next to impossible for the people of Pakistan to hate a country where their Muslim brothers are living in such a large number. It is also true that there is a small fraction of the Hindu extremists who are a continuous threat not only to the Muslims but also to the Christians, Sikhs and to the low-caste Hindus too. But in BJP, these Hindu extremists are in majority.Read More »ATTENTION MR.HOME MINISTER

RESHAPING TOMORROW

Ali display pic  I am sure, during your early school days, most of you would have read the story, ‘The Wood-Cutter and his Sons.’ When the old wood-cutter was on his death bed, he asked his sons to bring a bundle of woods and break it without untying it; but the sons could not. The wood-cutter then asked them to untie the bundle and break the woods separately; the sons did it just in a few moments. From England to America and from China to Syria this story has ever been a very favourite one among the youngsters and in Pakistan too but unfortunately we in Pakistan never tried to learn any lesson from this story. On the other hand our friends in other parts of the world not only enjoyed its reading but also made its moral lesson the basic principle of their life. To tell you the truth; lack of unity is the most grievous problem of our society. Our enemies have learnt well how to ‘untie’ us and we are being broken into pieces like dried and lifeless logs of wood. It is the most urgent need of time that our religious scholars, our teachers, our poets, writers and journalists concentrate all their vigour on teaching us the importance of unity. One thing must always be very much clear to all of us that unity is the basis of any society. It takes no time in becoming Afghanistan or Iraq or Lebanon as these countries are the ever worst examples of internal social conflicts based on political, ethnic and sectarian differences. Life has become a hell in these countries and foreign invaders are simply enjoying these self-divided societies.Read More »RESHAPING TOMORROW

THE MOTHER OF ALL TERRORISTS

ALI SUKHANVER

Ali display picCertainly one would call it illogical to trace some connection between the terrorist attack on Police Training Academy in Quetta and the successful completion of international PACES championship at Ayub stadium Lahore but unfortunately these two events are closely connected. And the whole episode revolves around a single point; Pakistan’s international isolation. Pakistan’s international isolation has been an ever green dream of the forces hostile to Pakistan. Our closest neighbour India is on the frontline of all such dreamers. For this purpose India leaves no stone unturned. A few days back India tried to give a new life to this old dream by boycotting the 19th SAARC Summit which was to be held in Islamabad in November this year. Apparently India’s boycott of this summit was a reaction to Pakistan’s so-called involvement in Uri attacks, though latter it was proved that the terrorists were purely of Indian origin and they had no linkage with Pakistan, India remained adamant on its blame. The only purpose of this stubbornness was to deface the realities and to defame Pakistan as a policy matter. India’s boycott was followed by the boycott of Afghanistan, Bhutan and Bangladesh. Now after India’s boycott of the SAARC Summit, it was a big challenge for Pakistan to neutralize this negative propaganda that Pakistan is drifting towards international isolation. Pakistan Army accepted the challenge of defeating India on this front too. Recently this ‘Internationally isolated Pakistan’ extremely successfully hosted the first ever international PACES championship at Ayub Stadium Lahore on 18th of this October.

MOLESTING DEAD MUSLIM WOMEN

Ali display picWho is leading a more miserable life in India; the Dalits or the Muslims? It is a very difficult question to answer because both the minorities are facing the same derogatory and insulting situation in the Indian society. However at some places Dalits seem in a better position and at some places the Muslims seem superior to them but they both are far inferior when compared with the upper-caste Hindus. A few years back India’s much esteemed news paper The Hindu, published a very heart rending investigative report on the poor plight of the Muslims in India. The newspaper sent an investigative team of its reporters to different residential areas of the Capital Delhi and assigned to it the task of finding a flat for a Muslim family. The team went to different property agents but everywhere it got the same response, “The landlords want only Indians, not Muslims.” The reporting team contacted Radha of Gulshan properties in New Friends Colony, New Delhi also. A few days back the Gulshan properties had advertised for a flat to be rented on but the reporting team got the same response there. The agent said, “Another Muslim wanted to take the same flat on rent but he was also refused by the owners though the flat has been vacant for a long time but they will not give it to a Muslim.” The Hindu latter on published the findings of its reporting team with the title, ‘Muslims: The Untouchables of India’.
