What's More - Whatmore

What's more Whatemore? If not winning against Ireland after six years wasn't enough, Pakistan has now lost against Zimbabwe after fifteen (15) years. Back then, Pakistan lost to arguably the most formidable Zimbabwe side in history - one that was capable of standing up to the best International Sides. With the cricketing climate in the country having undergone a drastic change since then, any victory by current setup against a top side will be remembered for long.

Update 14th September:
Zimbabwe has again stunned Pakistan by winning Second Test at Harare.

India's 'New Beginning'

World's Largest Democracy, India has reponded aggresively to Pakistani Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif's request for a "New Beginning" in bilateral relations.

"Let us make a new beginning. Let us sit together to resolve all outstanding issues in a friendly manner and in a peaceful atmosphere," said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

However, India responded rather aggresively killing a civilian with unprovoked firing in Kashmir in the latest in a series of recent clashes in the disputed Himalayan Region.

The great escape from Dera Jail

It was cowardice, it was failure of nevers, however, it wasn't intelligence failure that caused Dera Ismail Khan's Central Prison debacle.

Although, Chief Minister Khyber-Pakhtunkhuwa, Pervaiz Khattak, and his Government were usually quick to blame that no intelligence was shared with them. However, it’s not that the attack caught the Local Authorities by surprise. Actually yes it did. It wasn’t an intelligence failure, though, but a security failure on the part of the Provincial Government. On the 26th, 27th, and 28th of July, Three Top-Secret Urgent Memos were sent from Local Intelligence Authorities to the Provincial Government, repeatedly warning that an attempt on the jail was imminent. But nothing happened. Well, a lot happened. But nothing from the Provincial Government’s side.

Earlier, about two hundred (200) Tehreek-e-Taliban Fighters, lead by Umar Khitab, broke their fasts in Tank and in three flanks left for Dera Ismail Khan to rescue and bring back fourty eight (48) very valuable comrades imprisoned in the Dera Ismail Khan's Central Prison.

The daring attack was masterminded by Adnan Rasheed, who gained fame for his assassination attempt on then President General Pervez Musharraf, and was himself serving time in Bannu Prison, i.e. till he himself was jail broken, along with hundreds of other comrades. And that incident was termed as "Total collapse of ANP Government and Law & Order in KP" by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman, Imran Khan.

The Dera Jail attack commenced half hour before min-night, and the attackers came through the main entrance, as the Jail Defenders simply threw down their weapons, and stood aside.

The attackers started searching for their comrades and within half an hour, they were on their way back – with the fourty eight (48) they came for, and another one ninty four (194) for good measure.

The return route was the same as when they came, and they Victoriously reached Waziristan, where they were given Heroes’ Welcome.

Later, Adnan Rasheed, who seems to be a specialist in Jailbreaks, said "We know where our brothers are being held captive in jails across the country. It is part of our jihad to help free our brothers and rest assured that we will free them, soon."

Shameful is a dignified word : Shameless Khan

Shameful is a dignified word, shamelessly said, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, in his reply to the Contempt of Court Case.

Refering to Imran Khan's statement in which he used the word "Shameful" for the Supreme Court of Paksitan and the Judiciary, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry asked "Can such words be used for the judiciary?"

Chief Justice added that since Imran is a leader and public figure, such words and statements are not expected from him.

However, Imran Khan had different thoughts and he stubornly stood by his words.

The Court deemed Imran Khan's reply as inadequate. The words allegedly used for the Judiciary can be punishable by law according to the Court’s decision at the end of the hearing.

Earlier, Imran Khan said "I have not done or said anything that is punishable by law, my statements were made in the interest of democracy in Pakistan".

Imran Khan had vowed on that he would "Stand by his Stance", even if it meant he is sentenced and disqualified from being elected into the assemblies, and said "If this is contempt, then I do not think they know the meaning of contempt."
