Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) protagonist Imran Khan has rocked Lahore with a mammoth throng of cohorts at Minar-e-Pakistan, and has emerged as a new Buhtto in country's history.

Zardari hires MQM's Rental Rally Services


President Asif Ali Zardari hires MQM's Rental Rally Services to counter PML-N's "Go Zardari Go Movement". The Mutahida Qaumi Movement has leapt to Zardari's defence, while Zardari's own party the Pakistan Peoples Party ended up trailing round its coalition partner. 

The Sindh Government lifted a ban on public rallies and processions in the metropolis for two days in order to pave the way for the Muttahida Qaumi Movement to hold a "Pro-Corruption Rally" to voice its support for Zardari and criticise the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz for "using foul language and derogatory remarks against the office of the President".

Sindh Provincial Minister and MQM Leader Raza Haroon said that all Pro-Corruption Elements would participate in the event organized by MQM.

Gilani creates Ministry of Good Governance


Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has created a new Ministry for Good Governance and termed it a move to improve governance.

In a move that highlights the tenuous, if not entirely severed, link between governance and this government, Prime Minister Gilani has created another new Federal Ministry.
 
"In order to ensure Clarity in Role, Integrated Service Delivery and Efficiency in Administering the Federal Administrative Function after implementation of the Eighteenth (18th) Amendment, restructuring has been done and a new Ministry for Good Governance has been created by the Prime Minister in Terms of Rule 3(2) of the Rules of Business, 1973," the statement issued by Prime Minister’s Secretariat said.

It was not clear how much additional expenses the exchequer will have to bear as a result of the decision taken at a time when the government claims to be trying to reduce expenses in view of the financial problems the country faces.

However, what is clear is that, the Government is busy creating jobs – for itself.

Ismail Abrehani - The lone ranger of Pakistan's Junagadh State


Junagadh & Manwadar, the offshore states of Pakistan were invaded and occupied by India soon after their accession to Pakistan. But Ismail Abrehani, a Senior Minister of Junagadh State, was the lone ranger who refused to accept Indian occupation and kept struggling for the independence of Junagadh from India.

During the partition of British India in 1947, the princely states were given a choice of acceding to either India or Pakistan or remaining outside them.

On 15th September, 1947, Nawab Muhammad Mahabat Khanji III of Junagadh, a princely state located on the south end of Kathiawar peninsula, chose to accede to Pakistan, because Junagadh adjoined Pakistan by sea.

However, Indian Government was bent upon on swallowing Junagadh and had decided and made full fool-proof preparations to do so?

On the 25th of September the so-called unlawful "Aarzee Hukumat" was formally formed with Shri Saamar Das Gandhi as President. It may please be noted that this relative of Mahathma Gandhi was not even a resident of Junagadh.

Secondly, the Government of India had decided a day earlier Indian Armed Forces and the Armies of the States in Kathaiwar should be suitably dispersed around Junagadh. This clearly shows that preparations to attack Junagadh commenced even before the formation of the so-called unlawful Civilian Provisional Government of Junagadh. It was a deliberate act of provocation on the part of the Indian Government.

As a part of the preparation for the invasion against and occupation of Junagadh, the Government of India constituted a "Kathiwar Division" of the Indian Army with Brigadier Gurdial Singh as the Chief with Rajkot as Headquarters. Besides, three War Ships were anchored at the port of Porbander and eight Tempest War planes were stationed at the Rajkot Airport.

Mangrol and Babariawad were two states under the suzerainty of Junagadh. The Goverrnment of India covertly through Indian Army and overtly through a Civil Adminstrator took over the two states on the 1st of November 1947. The Government of India took over by force Sardargadh a neighbouring town of Bantava and then it captured Bantva on the Eid-ul-Azha Day whilst the Muslims were peacefully praying in mosques.

Junagadh was occupied on the 9th of November 1947 at 6 PM by the Indian Army led by Brigadier Gurdial Singh. Thus, from that day Junagadh became de facto India's whilst being de jure Pakistan's.

Immediately after the take-over of the state, all Muslim Officials of the state were put behind bars. They included Ismail Abrehani, who had taken the Instrument of Accession to the Quaid-e-Azam for his signature. Abrehani refused to leave Junagadh, even when he was offered in jail the option of going to Pakistan, saying that despite its occupation Junagadh was part of Pakistan according to International law and he preferred to remain. He stayed and later died in Junagadh.

Salman Butt contacted Imran Khan before Fixing


Salman Butt’s disclosure before a British Court that he was in touch with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chief Imran khan while bargaining for gambling amount stunned the nation.

A British court has taken up match fixing case against Pakistani Cricketers. The accusation was highlighted when a London newspaper ‘News of the World’ released a video of Mazhar Majeed wherein he admitted to match fixing and payment of heavy amounts to Pakistani Cricketers.

During the court proceedings when Salman Butt was asked as to who he was talking on a telephone when cricketer Wahab Riaz wearing a jacket given by Mazhar Majeed stuffed with thousands of pounds sterling entered, he replied he was in contact with Imran Khan.

Moreover, Butt's lawyer Ali Bajwa QC told the court that some Pakistan numbers in the phone records during this time corresponded to calls Butt made to family, friends and former players including Imran Khan.

Royal Rumble in Pakistan's Parliament


Royal Rumble broke out in Pakistan's Parliament and distinctly non-parliamentary language filled the air. This unsavoury clash between the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Mutahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) legislators revived memories of similar transgressions in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). 


Royal Rumble between PML-N legislators and MQM members broke out during a fiery speech by Opposition Leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, who launched an attack on MQM and demanded that Dr Zulfiqar Mirza bring his briefcase of evidence against the MQM to parliament rather than taking it to London. He also demanded a debate on the charges made against the MQM.

Things got worse with the PML-N MNA’s Abid Sher Ali and Hanif Abbasi and some MQM MNAs almost coming to blows.

Punjab to hire mosquitoes in Dengue Brigade


To overcome much feared Dengue Epidemic, that is haunting every citizen in the Lahore, the City District Government Lahore has decided to hire Dengue Mosquitoes in Dengue Brigade. This yearly drive will not only keep the Dengue Mosquitoes busy, it will also add more sting to the Pakistani Law Enforcement Agencies, insiders informed. 

They said that according to annual schedule the hiring campaign was to start formally in the mid of the September but delayed due to sluggish attitude of the authorities despite the special directions from the Punjab Chief Minister who directed CDG authorities to launch campaign before scheduled time keeping in mind the disastrous situation of Dengue Epidemic this year which claimed lives of hundreds of citizens.

Brilliant Butt to continue as PCB Chairman : President's Spokesman


PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt will continue in his role for an indefinite period, i.e. until Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari, who is also the Patron of the PCB, decides otherwise.

Butt, whose constitutional three-year tenure has already ended, left for Dubai to attend the ICC's executive board meeting, putting to an end speculation of an immediate removal. "The matter of the extension of his tenure is under consideration," told President's Spokesman Farhatullah Babar. "As per the normal practice in our Governmental System, anyone whose tenure ends can carry on with the President's consent". 

"So, he can continue his good work for an indefinite period of time."

Butt's tenure, though, has been plagued with controversies, including the armed attack on the Sri Lanka team in Lahore that resulted in Pakistan being denied the chance to co-host the 2011 World Cup, the spot-fixing scandal (and the problems with the ECB in its aftermath when Butt made controversial accusations against the England Team), Zulqarnain Haider's fleeing to the UK mid-way through a tour after receiving threats from bookies and, most recently, a much-publicised clash with Shahid Afridi.

The Day I Wished I Could Fly


The day I wished I could fly
Beyond those mountains through the sky
I can hear their screams and their cry
 Beneath the rubble thousands lie
Hope we can give a fruitful try
Otherwise thousands will die
The day I wished I could fly

Zardari Network taking Pakistan to Stoneage


Zardari Network is taking Pakistan to stoneage, as the Zardari Network Government is bent upon destroying the institutions and continues to plunder of what little there is left to pillage in the unfortunate country.

During Pakistan People Party's previous two stints in the government, the Zardari Network has looted Billion of Dollars from Pakistan - not just from Kickbacks on government contracts  but also by land grabbing and all sort of other tactics.

The country is passing through a critical situation and the Zardari Nework Government is showing complete indifference towards the worsening energy crisis, especially electricity shortage, in the country. The Zardari Nework Government is unconcerned about the plight of patients in hospitals and students in schools. The Dengue Patients are suffering the most due to long unannounced power outages, specially in Lahore and other big cities, and due to unprecedented load-shedding, sophisticated medical equipment for Dengue Patients in hospitals had been damaged. 

But despite prolonged load-shedding, people are being sent inflated electricity bills.

The economic situation of the country has deteriorated, no investment is coming in and unemployment has reached alarming levels.
The energy crisis had severely damaged economy of the country. And the machinery for power plants has been lying at the Karachi port for over two years, but the Zardari Nework Government has taken no steps to install them for overcoming power crisis in the country.

Pakistan faces debilitating challenges, from an uncontrollable Zardari Network to an economy on the fritz to a fractured political system that, for a nation of One Hundred Sixty Five (165) Million, seems incapable of producing one fairly reliable, uncorrupted leader.
