Indian malevolent intentions

Shah Waseem

This refers to the news report that “India to disfavor NATO forces exit” in war ravaged Afghanistan at a multilateral conference which was held on Thursday in London on the matter of Afghanistan.  This shows and exposes the malevolent, malicious, mala-fide and nefarious intent of Indian leadership and its policy towards Afghanistan, as it wants to use it as its bastion to spread the trouble in Pakistan.

There is already enough of evidence which has proven it beyond any doubt that Indian agency RAW and Israel’s Mossad nexus have developed vicious interests in the pell-mell and commotion in Afghanistan to pursue their heinous agenda, camouflaged under the ‘peace and developmental works’, which has brought death and misery to the Afghan people. After all what is the objective of spending more than US dollar 1.3 billion, when over 70% of Indian population is reeling under abject poverty.
It is the occupation of Afghanistan and the disruptive role of RAW which has caused extreme turbulence in Pakistan with its spillback effects on Afghanistan. India has made deep inroads in all spheres of life in Afghanistan with the active help of Israel as it wants to spread its hegemony and increase its military presence to be able to encircle Pakistan and spread its influence in central Asian states. Already India according to reports has established an airbase in Tajikistan which became operational in 2007 and where many Indian MiG-31 bombers are parked. Farkhor base gives IAF option to strike Pakistan from the rear. India would therefore not like to lose these strategic benefits and in consonance with Israel, which has huge influence over Washington would keep advising USA to convert Afghanistan into a permanent military base, which will have serious repercussions on the security and future of South Asia.
Already it has been a confirmed report by an American institution that Indian intelligence agency RAW is funding and supporting terrorists to keep pot boiling in Afghanistan so that Pakistan remains busy in bloody conflicts along its Afghan border which has now spread deep inside its territory making situation worse, Delhi wants to exploit the conditions in its favour and by spreading the propaganda of safety of Pakistan’s nukes.
Accordingly India and Israel are running their dirty business on the future of poor Afghanis even by fake incidents so as to justify NATO troops presence there,  Anderson Cooper of CNN showed video of snipers (Mossad or Israeli soldiers) killing American soldiers in Iraq. Many Afghan soldiers have been trained by Blackwater to kill US soldiers while conducting joint operations, with a purpose to enrage US troops so that slaughter continues. That is why Delhi is getting stomach cramps when any rational talk of quitting Afghanistan by foreign troops comes which will usher an era of peace and prosperity in the region. Here under the garb of peace and developmental works India is doing great injustice to Afghanistan and ultimately to herself as great and conscious Afghanis will never forgive India’s dubious role in fomenting trouble there, with already by it’s intransigence and belligerence turned South Asia into a nuclear hotspot by vituperating Kashmiri peoples national sentiments and by keeping Kashmir dispute lingering.

Indian Terror Interests

By Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal

Innocent India has a hidden terror face that deliberately sends out conflicting signals to the world to mislead it for India's own future advantages. India has been literally dying for a seat in the notorious security council of UN to pursue its illegal interests across the globe. The nucelarism deal was to affect that urge with US support on payment basis. Once inside the terrorist United Nations Security Council , the terror Indian can dictate terms to all its neighbors in South Asia as a “great power”. The poor people of South Asia have very little time, before our citizens are sacrificed as cannon fodder on the altar of Imperialism & Zionism. The only way is to "expose the politics of terror". The Mumbai 26 11 false flag terror attack was not only an attack on India, but on all of South Asia. Another false flag terror attack will be used by the pro-US Indian elite to mobilize hundreds of thousands of youth to go to war in Afghanistan, maybe even Pakistan & Iran. Indian soldiers have been used in the past by the British Colonial power to fight their wars across the world, especially in Middle East & North Africa. Once more the US Empire seeks to use our People.
Mumbai 26 11 too was staged by the Indian agencies and Israeli Lobby working in India under US directions. Mumbai Nov26 had the signature of western-trained operatives: commandos arrival quietly by dinghy to shore, quickly mobilizing to urban terrain, navigating & communicating with high-tech sys is a specific skill taught by Navy elite to Marines,South Asian struggle against Imperialism & Zionism is the need of the hour. A South Asia free of the US European & Israeli Imperialists is the need of the hour & is our patriotic calling. It is clear that the US, or rather Obama, cannot win the war in Afghanistan, even stabilize the land & thus they are increasingly desperate. The only country that can provide them with the human power in the region is India. The US war, is not humanity war. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization Axis evils seek to make it everyone’s war & for that they will stage false-flag terror attacks. Without terrorisms not capitalism, colonialism and imperialism canto survive.
India, unlike Pakistan  has vast “resources”, including stolen, to its terror credit and these are used freely to advance its interests. Signaling undercurrent and simmering tensions in the India Pakistan relations following the IPL row and a rise in ceasefire violations, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Qureshi and his Indian counterpart Krishna and will be attending the London conference on Afghanistan on January 28, but will not have a separate bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the conference. This is very rare and unusual in the context of Indo Pak relations and reflects the prevailing discord between the two neighbours..India is unable to answer the query form Islamabad about real culprits of Mumbai and Lahore terror activities and would  hold separate meetings with its terror partners in Islamic world US terror secretary of State Hillary Clinton, British Foreign Terror Secretary Miliband and Australian Foreign Minister Smith on its future role in Afghanistan. Of late, both USA and UK are in praise for India for the “special resources” it offers to them. The West is also urging China to take a “keen interest”, “share” the “burden” and get involved in the building up of Afghanistan. China just ignores them as international bluffers.
Today the USA and UK are trumpeting about a terror attack in India, preferably a serial attack. This gives the hint that India is already ready with a terror project, possible a joint venture with USA and UK “India faces the real prospect of another major terrorist attack by Pakistan-based terrorist organizations in the near future. In recent days, the matter of the Military & strategic involvement of the Indian forces in terrorism and Afghanistan is getting all the more clearer. The strategic objective that propelled the Mumbai 26 11 false flag terror attack was to prepare the consensus amongst the Indian people, whereby the notorious pro US Israel political elite, would be free to deploy terror Military into the war theatre in Afghanistan.
In the last few days, there have been high profile visits from both Richard Holbrooke  & US terror minister Secretary, Robert Gates, accompanied by shrill warnings from 'Western Sources' of another terror attack that was imminent. General James Jones, who is the National Security Advisor to Obama, has stated in the US Congress that the Al Qaeda is barely a hundred in number. This statement was never reported in the corporate media. Just imagine, a 100,000 US troops to flush out less than a 100 Al Qaeda. The US India elites say India can be a net provider of security in the Indian Ocean & beyond   making valuable contributions to stability operations across the globe. One of the great successes in recent years has been the increase in the number & complexity of joint training exercises between terror militaries.
The leading hawkish “US assets” in Indian strategic fields keep pressing for the deployment of Indian troops into the Afghan war. The terror instinct has got fresh impetus after Obama sent fresh US terrorists to Afghanistan recently. One of known US agents in Indian terror military establishment K Subrahmanyam does mirror the hawkish inclinations of a section of the Indian elite & was one of the main writers that created the consensual manipulation that lead to the finalization of the Indo US Nuclear Deal, which was less about the energy component & was basically a military-strategic alliance.
US led NATO uses Indian economic and regional clout would like to promote it as  the chief agent in South Asia, in stead of Pakistan which collects money for killing Muslims while India does it for them free of cost. In order to divert the world attention from its secret terror plans, India asks Pakistan to “guarantee” against any future terror attacks in India. This is a slap on India’s own face. First, Indian military and intelligence outfits are incapable to checking the terror attacks and, two, Pakistan or for that matter any other neighbor can offer that guarantee when Indian big wings engineer terrorist plans and execute them by efficiently using the agents. How can Pakistan monitor the terror plans taking lace inside India which has now close knit terror ties with Zionist and other fascist regimes, like USA, UK? For example, can Pakistan control the Hindu terrorist activities around the Indian dams like at Bhakra Nangal on Punjab-Himachal border?
Indian media celebrate the failures of its neighbors to foolishly ignoring the Indian doctrines and hidden agendas hatched in New Delhi from time to time- very effectively shielded by its newly acquired strategic partners USA apart fro UK and Russia. It is possible that the intelligence establishment is not doing the needful to inform the regimes of the Indian designs. Indian external maneuvering capabilities and its capacity to malign Pakistan as a cover to advance its terror and subversive techniques are generally not taken as seriously as they do deserve even by Pakistan which thinks USA and UK, their strategic terror leaders from the cultured west, would not let India outsmart Pakistan, their regional terror ally in killing Muslims.

India thinks once Pakistan is borught under its control like the USA has done, the rest of the region, especially Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal, would learn to behave well, while Kashmiri Muslims would automatically shut their freedom cries.

Shah Rukh Khan slams IPL

Bollywood’s King Khan provides a new twist in the awry tale of IPL as he expressed his support for the Pakistani Players. It seems that SRK wanted to have a Pakistani player in his squad but the co-owners of his team and other teams have taken a decision that he didn’t liked.
SRK’s Kolkata Knight Riders has been represented by the Pakistani players in the past. The likes of Mohd.Hafeez, Umar Gul and how can we forget the Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar. This year KKR will have the likes of Wasim Akram as their bowling consultant.
According to our sources Shahrukh wanted to have the services of Abdur Razzaq but then he was not their in the Auction and the Co-Owners of his teams have gone against his wishes and which we think has been influenced by BCCI. IBN reports that SRK has expressed his displeasure in this matter saying: “They are the champions, they are wonderful but somewhere down the line there is an issue and we can’t deny it. We are known to invite everyone. We should have. If there were any issues, they should have been put on board earlier. Everything can happen respectfully.”
SRK also added that this issue that is turning into a political drama has left a sour taste in his mouth. All this while the team owners were denying that they have left thePakistani players out of their radar for security reasons but this statement by the Baadshah of Bollywood will surely put their image and reputation in jeopardy. Now we will wait and see how BCCI and Lalit Modi react to this comment? Keep reading from us or you can also write a small statement that you think Lalit Modi will make on SRK’s views.

Pakistan Air Force destroy India without firing a single missile

In a bizarre development, former Pakistan Air Force chief was all over India in few seconds. He ran over India without receiving a single resistance on his way to New Delhi.

He was praised and he was worshiped. He was in eyes of Indian. He was just a click away. Searched on Google image, downloaded and pasted over; this is how he won India in just few second.

The IPL is becoming a big mafia: Miandad

The rejection of Pakistani cricketers at the IPL auction is baffling because they are some of the best players in the world, especially in Twenty20 cricket. Since the auction defies cricketing logic, the people of Pakistan feel they have been humiliated, that the IPL treated the nation’s beloved stars shoddily.
No one can explain why someone like Damien Martyn, who retired from cricket over three years ago, is more useful than Shahid Afridi. Rated as the best Twenty20 player in the world, Afridi has no place in the IPL, even though he has been signed up by both Hampshire and South Australia. Also ignored were also stellar performers like Sohail Tanvir, who helped Rajasthan Royals win the first IPL tournament, and talented youngsters like Umar Akmal.
Since there has been no credible explanation why Pakistani players were put up for auction and then not bought, I feel it’s fair to believe that there was a conspiracy to keep them out. In situations such as the IPL auction, it’s not an individual, but the nation that is humiliated. You remember the time when Dilip Vengsarkar was refused an entry permit for a tournament in Sharjah? He was sent back to India, where there was anger and protests outside the UAE embassy. If Tendulkar is treated the way Pakistani players were, won’t Indian fans be angry? The players live in the people’s hearts, and it’s no wonder that Pakistanis are angry.
If the IPL didn’t want players from Pakistan, they should not have put them up for auction. But they (IPL and the franchises) played their game very cleverly, which can be best described through the proverb: saamp bhi mar jaaye, laathi bhi na toote. Sadly, these tricks can only harm cricket.
I’ve always believed that Twenty20 cricket will kill the game. The businessmen currently at the helm of affairs are not bothered about cricket; they only want to make money from it. Ideally, the ICC should not allow such tournaments, but if it’s allowing them, it should supervise them. If the ICC doesn’t intervene, then there would be more such controversies. If the ICC allows players to participate in the IPL, isn’t it their responsibility to oversee how it is run?
The IPL exists because of the BCCI and the players it has helped develop. It’s not because of Lalit Modi or other businessmen. Modi, after all, derives his power from the BCCI. His manner of operation makes you wonder: who is there to think about cricket and the cricketers? He was defeated twice last year in elections for the Rajasthan Cricket Association, showing that he isn’t considered good for cricket. Had it been otherwise, he would have won.
The IPL snub could be related to the distribution of the matches for the 2011 World Cup, to be held in the subcontinent. The venues for the Cup were renegotiated after Pakistan was deemed unsafe. The other three nations are now regularly playing among themselves: India toured Sri Lanka, then Sri Lanka toured India, and then they played in Bangladesh, ensuring revenues for each other. All this must have been planned at the time the cricket officials were discussing how to take away World Cup matches from Pakistan. Led by India, these countries conspired to keep Pakistan out. This is typical of the BCCI—it uses us and then casts us aside. There is bound to be resentment against such behaviour.
The time has come for cricket lovers and cricketers to unite, to tell these people (franchises) that we know you are here only for the money, not for cricket. The BCCI has money, and money makes a difference, but it cannot convert wrong into right.
People-to-people relations between India and Pakistan are always good. Without cricket, we’d have never seen the Indian flag being flown in Pakistan, or the Pakistani flag in India. I was the Pakistan coach when India came to Pakistan. The reception they received—not only the players, but the media and fans too—meant they returned home with good memories that melt the icy relations between the countries. People make governments; they, indeed, are the government. If people-to-people relations are good, nothing bad can happen.
The ICC and the other cricket boards should raise the IPL auction issue. They have provided the players who’re helping the IPL make money. They should also have a say in its running, and a share in the revenues. What if every board tells its players not to play in the IPL? The tournament will flop.

Pak Cricket Legend Imran Khan blasts IPL

Former Pakistani fast bowler Imran Khan who is also considered as one of the best captain the cricketing world has ever seen blasts IPL for ignoring Pakistani players in their recently concluded Auction.
Talking to The Nation, the former World cup winning Captain expressed his anger on IPL franchises as he said:  “We should protest at ICC level as well as at the government level. We should not show any complacency on this issue. They insulted our heroes. We should highlight this issue at all forums including the diplomatic as well as sports forums.”
Imran who has now become a politician also agreed to what the Pakistani ministers have said as he added: “We should cut off all ties with India and this act should be condemned at diplomatic level.”
But Imran has been fair in his judgement like Zaheer Abbas and also blames PCB for not handling the matter properly, he also believes that Pakistan has enough talent in sports but they are always denied proper platform.

PCB set to register complaint for IPL snub

The War of Words continues as Pakistan Cricket Board has taken a decision to lodge a complaint with International Cricket Council over IPL snub. Cricinfo reports that PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt has said in his statement: “We will be lodging a complaint with the ICC and I will personally table this issue at the next meeting of the ICC executive board on February 10.”
The Chairman also added: “The IPL may be a private and commercial enterprise but this issue involves the pride of a nation and we are going to pursue it with the ICC.”
But the Pak Politicians are going out of context as Sports Minister Ijaz Jhakrani said: “How can they avoid bidding for players from the world champion team?”
Well it seems that Pakistan has got another issue to fight with their old foes India and the above comments seems that they just want revenge from India, as IPL has ignored there players. Though BCCI secretary has denied all the allegations and Indian Government has cleared off its hand from this issue but Pakistan wants revenge and they won’t stop until they get it. Ejaz Butt is still not ready to believe his Indian counterparts as he stated: “They should tell us if franchises had reservations about signing Pakistani players because they were worried about security issues and availability of the players why were our players included in the auction in the first place. If IPL franchises have so many issues with signing our players then why did the IPL first approach us to send them government clearances for the players?”

Is this The End Of India?

    Khuswant Singh a renowned journalist world wide & recognized as Nom Chomsky of India, in his book “The End of India” predicted about the total destruction of India into diminutive parts. He cautioned not only govt but all stake holders of Indian so called secular society that they should not only forget the partition of India but also accept presence of Pakistan and all Muslims inside and outside of India with open heart .He further suggested that India must accept equal rights of others, do justice with minorities, discourage extremism grouped with militancy and  forget to eliminate the low caste Hindus from the society by degrading and disregarding their presence in millions. But unfortunately, since the publication of his book all these evils have unprecedented increase in Indian society.

      It was a few days back when two famous news publishing groups of Pakistan The Jang and India  Times of india hoisted a flag for peace in the subcontinent. It was really very lovely on their part because this is the time when poor masses of the region are looking for respite so that economic activities can burgeon in the area. Probably people are now fed up from wars and arms race. The masses now want that governments must spend money on their welfare, health, education and comforts of life. Each one having little knowledge and vision of future, looks towards European Union countries, how they have resolved their skirmishes and now are focused on scientific advancements and economic growth of their people. But when one of the two countries is India, in a peace dialogue with Pakistan, results are always pitiable as India never responds positively to peace process. The theme “Aman ki Aasha” is a good beginning. Peaceful people of Pakistan responded well and it received warm welcome in Pakistan side of the border but it was not acceptable for the militant minds and extremist groups having deep roots in govt, Indian army and society as well.

      It was really interesting to see the influence of politicians getting lead from extremist groups on the sports event IPL, being conducted in India. At this time, Indian media kept quite and never pointed what all was happening. It was really terrifying to engulf that every one in India had gone bonkers. When poor people of the two countries just started dancing under the flag of “Aman ki Aasha”, the Indian wise strategy makers same as of their previous record, stabbed the peace process by influencing IPL franchises for snubbing Pakistani players at auction. The mind planning this all, was really cunning and insightful that successfully pierced the hearts of ordinary cricket lovers. Actually, extremist elements of India being supported by Indian army and agencies want to escalate the war between two countries. This time they tried a way which is never used anywhere in the world ever. They polluted the sports which are always above politics and players are ambassadors of peace. But it was a typical Hindu mind who at one end never hesitates to damage Pakistan and on the other sabotaged the peace efforts. This was really a right move to hoist the public sentiments. Time and again, India by its actions has proved its enmity with Pakistan and people of Pakistan and govt must take a serious note of it.  India showed its true colors with this one action when Pakistan cricketers were ignored and humiliated by IPL franchises at the player’s auction in Mumbai, India on Tuesday. With this snub, no Pakistani cricketer will feature in the third edition of the IPL to be held in India in March 2010. It was not only players who went under the hammer but the hearts of millions of cricket lovers across the region. Let us see how this Aman ki Aasha floats in coming days with the Indian extremist’s desperate efforts to interfere with it. As far as cricket is concerned, it is really funny on the cricket management part that no player of the world T20 champion team will be playing. It seems from the sports point of view that India has probably slapped its own secular face by showing this drama to complete world.

      New Year is exposing India in front of the world with each passing day.  New Year started with millennium statements of the Indian army chief who either talked of nuclear war or attacking two nuclear neighbors simultaneously and was boasting to defeat both. In the same month while visiting the test fire, the chief himself admitted Indian army’s armored debacle and expressed concern about the force’s night blindness in the area of armored corps and mechanized Infantry. As per Indian Tv, it also revealed during test fire that army chief was deaf from one ear and will be the first army chief to retire on medical grounds. Seeing the health, statements and action of the general, I am afraid that opinion of some other health check specialists may also be solicited. It’s really high time for Indian people as their state apparatus is dancing into the hands of extremist groups and international power brokers. With its actions govt seems totally blind and dancing for the goals which are never achievable.

      When Indian policy makers and highest officials are talking of wars with nuclear neighbors, humiliating the peace process and battling for becoming a superpower through short cuts; the situation inside country is alarming. India’s Maoist rebels are now present in 20 states and have killed more than
9hundred security officials. People are coming on the roads for price hike and in a recent protest Malaiam Singh Yadev, the leader of Samaj Vadi Party was arrested by the police. Deepening stark inequalities and raucous role of militant elements are harnessing India towards a self triggered tragedy which will not only destroy India but the region also.

At this critical juncture of time, India requires a policy and leadership who can comprehend the future challenges. Other than falling into the hands of international power brokers and extremist groups from inside, India will have to hold firmly its secular image with real implementation. India will have to address the grievances’ of people from with in and will have to regard the rights of its neighbors.  Extremist militant groups have deepened their roots in Indian society and armed forces as well. India will have to eliminate them by discouraging such thought process. 21st century is an era of peace, prosperity and mutual trust where all nations can live with equal rights and comforts. If India does not regard the will of the people, none in this world be able to safeguard its integrity and she will break from inside. India at the moment is at the cross roads of its existence and any adventure will take it to turmoil.

Robert Gates Confirms Blackwater in Pakistan

by Jeremy Scahill
In an interview with the Pakistani TV station Express TV, Defense Secretary Robert Gates confirmed that the private security firms Blackwater and DynCorp are operating inside Pakistan. "They're operating as individual companies here in Pakistan," Gates said, according to a DoD transcript of the interview. "There are rules concerning the contracting companies.  If they're contracting with us or with the State Department here in Pakistan, then there are very clear rules set forth by the State Department and by ourselves."
This appears to be a contradiction of previous statements made by the Defense Department, by Blackwater, by the Pakistani government and by the US embassy in Islamabad, all of whom claimed Blackwater was not in the country. In September, the US Ambassador to Pakistan, Anne Patterson, denied Blackwater's presence in the country, stating bluntly, "Blackwater is not operating in Pakistan." In December in The Nation magazine, I reported on Blackwater's work for JSOC in Pakistan and on a subcontract with a private Pakistani security company. The Pentagon did not issue any clear public denials, and instead tried to pass the buck to the State Department, which in turn passed it to the US embassy, which in turn issued an unsigned statement saying the story was false.
Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said on numerous occasions that he would resign if it is proven that Blackwater is operating inside Pakistan.
Asked what the US response would be if the Pakistani parliament passed a law banning private security companies, Gates said, "If it's Pakistani law, we will absolutely comply."
Asked about Seymour Hersh's recent report in The New Yorker that US special forces were inside Pakistan helping to secure the country's nuclear weapons, Gates said, "Well, you know, we sometimes have journalistic reports in the United States that aren't terribly accurate either.  You can't respond to all of them.  I think that one was not true."

Jewish controlled and Indian influenced jaundiced US think tanks

By Asif Haroon Raja

There are 1777 think tanks based in USA of which 350 are in Washington alone. Likewise, large numbers are working in western countries. Some are government sponsored while others are funded by private sources. These think tanks have been burning midnight oil for the last eight years to suggest a way out how to defeat, dismantle Al-Qaeda and its associates and to emerge victorious from war on terror and thus make the sole super power the winner. Rather than working on foreign policy and security issues, their entire focus has been on justifying the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq; to cover up the crimes committed by US-NATO forces; to paint radical Muslims within targeted countries as human eating monsters and US forces as liberators.
Rather than pouring out pearls of wisdom for the benefit of US policy makers in particular and the world in general to help defuse the explosive situation which is spinning out of control and threatening world peace, their pens never dry up spewing out poison to further stoke fires of chaos and anarchy. Their write ups are based on tutored themes given by vested interests aimed at distorting facts, spreading disinformation, uncertainty and paranoia so as to keep the pot of war on terror boiling. They portray the aggressors as virtuous free of any faults and victims of aggression as evil.
Think tanks are essentially required to fine-tune solutions to some most complex and vexing issues. They are expected to help in setting policy agendas to bridge the gap between knowledge and action. Except for very few, majority of think tanks are intensely prejudiced, irrational and imbalanced. None has ever discussed the root causes of terrorism or defined terrorism, or state terrorism objectively. Al-Qaeda has been converted into a Frankenstein monster which haunts each member of the think tanks as well as policy makers in Washington, London, Tel Aviv and New Delhi. Like Osama bin Laden led Al-Qaeda, Mulla Omar led Afghan Taliban have also got on their nerves. All these militants whom they now profusely hate were the blued-eyed of USA and western world in the 1980s since it were these holy warriors, now turned into terrorists, who bestowed the status of sole super power upon USA. Without their heroics USA could never ever have fulfilled its dream. As long as the US loved the Mujahideen they were loved by the free world. No sooner they began to hate them and became egotistical, unilateral and self righteous; it triggered anti-Americanism and the whole world began to hate USA for being selfish, untrustworthy and arrogant.
While ignoring all other influencing factors and the causes which radicalize normal human beings and turn them into extremists, terrorists and suicide bombers, the think tanks remain single tracked and keep treading the beaten track. Their conclusions and recommendations are drawn on jaundiced and faulty premises as a result of which the real evil doers are painted in white and the victims in black. All sorts of fanciful stories are conceived and published to raise alarm bells and to stoke fears about imaginary threats with ill motives. The net result is that after passage of over eight years, the US today finds itself in a blind alley with limited options how to pull out of the self created quagmire. Things have gone from bad to worse with little hope for recovery.
Even at this ongoing critical juncture, pseudo think tanks have still not corrected their skewed course to recover lost ground. Living in fancy world, they continue to come out with bizarre fairy-tales to keep the leaders off track. Having got tired of churning out chronicles on mythical Osama, and vainly trying to keep dead Osama alive to justify continuation of war on terror, their thrust is now mostly focused on Pakistan, Iran and on homeland security. Their nuclear program has got on their nerves. Finding Iran to be a tough customer to deal with, they have directed all their guns against Pakistan since they find it a convenient scapegoat. Every now and then some sensational story regarding vulnerability of Pakistan nuclear program appears in foreign newspapers and journals.
Apart from their calculated efforts to malign Pakistan and its institutions to weaken it from within and to pave the way for its denuclearization, they put the blame of failures of US military on Pakistan under varying pretexts and derive inner satisfaction. Other favorite fictions which thrill them are about balkanization or break up of Pakistan; extremists on the verge of taking over power and nukes; Pak Army and ISI aligned with extremists; unsatisfactory safety and security system of nuclear installations; terrorist attack on US homeland would spring from FATA; Osama and Al-Qaeda top leadership based in FATA since 2002 pose serious threat to western nations, Mulla Omar and his Shura in Quetta coordinating attacks in Afghanistan; another Mumbai like terror attack on India in the offing; officials with religious bent of mind and aligned with terrorists working in nuclear facilities would steal nukes.
Their prejudice can be gauged from the fact that not a single story concerning India or Israel suffering from multiple vulnerabilities has ever appeared. Their loopy and self serving approach on non-issues has not only robbed them of intellectual honesty and fair play but also distracted them from the main job they are supposed to perform. Rather than pondering over real issues and appraising policy makers with implications of ground realities and presenting instructive counsels to enable them to arrive at timely and correct decisions, they feed them with motivated and half-baked analyses and present a false picture. To hide their incompetence they present gains made through propaganda campaign against Pakistan.
Unmindful of the enraged sentiments of American public they put up faulty analysis how to convert defeat into victory in Afghanistan merely to please their bosses. Their write ups serve the cause of Jews and Indians only but prove injurious for overall interests of USA as well as people of USA.
Major reason for this glitch is that the whole lot of intensely partisan think tanks in USA and leading ones in Europe are Jewish controlled and CIA funded. Indians too invest a lot in these think tanks and several of them have Indians as members. Ideas propounded by think tanks are picked up by leading US and western newspapers while Jewish and Indian paid journalists not only corroborate it but add spice to it.
Judging from the track record and conduct of these jaundiced think tanks, it is quite evident that they are hell-bent to keep USA and Muslim world on a warpath so as to kill two birds with one stone. Clash of civilization between Christianity and Islam suit the agenda of Israel and India, both aspiring to become world powers. The Zionists had first pitched US led western world and Muslim world against Communism and after the fall of latter in 1991, Islam became their next target. Among the Muslims those with religious bent of mind and closer to religion were marked for annihilation with the help of secular Muslim leadership and backed by ultra liberal Muslims. American Jews played a key role in coloring the perceptions of US leaders. In order to turn American and western public hostile against Muslims, 9/11 was master minded by the Jews which changed the dynamics of the globe. Their grisly role has now been sufficiently exposed.
When George W. Bush decided to invade Afghanistan to avenge terrorist attacks allegedly master minded by Osama bin Laden and also to ensure homeland security, India offered its full services and tried hard to convince Washington to tackle both Afghanistan and Pakistan simultaneously. Bush Administration ignored the counsel and preferred Pakistan over India because of its remarkable role in war in Afghanistan against Soviet forces in 1980s. As long as Washington trusted Pakistan and its premier institutions it made good progress. No sooner it started to mistrust Islamabad and indulged in undesirable ‘do more mantra’ under the influence of India and Israel and US think tanks, it lost direction and things began to go haywire and once the initiative slipped out of US hands it could not be regained.
In the war on terror, Muslims are being butchered ruthlessly much to the delight of Israel, India and neo-cons in USA. So far over 1.5 million Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan have been killed, as many maimed for life and millions displaced. Worst form of torture and human degradation by the so-called most civilized nations of the world took place. The two countries have been ruined and divided on ethnic lines.
In this war of bloodshed and wanton destruction, American and western troops too have suffered human losses. They are suffering from battle fatigue, weariness, loss of heart and immense psychological traumas. Obama on whom high hopes were pinned has proved to be the other side of the coin. He continues to follow self-destructive policies since his sources of information and influencing bodies are the same. Neo-cons of George W. Bush era are still active and influential while Pentagon and CIA in league with hawkish elements within Establishment, State Department and Congress have occupied front seats and are calling all the shots.
With Iraq still in turmoil and Afghanistan fast slipping out of its hands, the US-NATO military is seeing defeat written on the walls of Afghanistan. The Taliban having gained an upper edge over 80% of Afghan Territory have now begun to strike the heartland Kabul. They are in the process of finding an answer to the aerial threat. The US finds itself lost and marooned and is somehow still banking upon troop surge which is not a solution to the problem. Rather, it would further aggravate matters. The US has lost its global prestige, self respect and credibility because of gross human rights violations, callousness, injustices and double standards and has earned the distinction of most hated country in the world. Anti-Americanism within the entire Muslim world has peaked and never before it was abhorred so intensely. Today the American officials are innocently asking in bewilderment as to why America is hated. The American public kept in a cocoon and unaware of barbarities committed by US forces against hapless people of Afghanistan and Iraq is equally puzzled.
Israel and India have preferred to remain in the background restricting their activities to covert operations only and letting USA to face the music. Pakistan has remained their common foe and both have played a role in building distrust between US-Pakistan relations by playing up the theme of Pakistan’s premier institutions linkage with Afghan Taliban and circulating scary stories about Pak nukes which pose no threat to USA. War on terror has all the gains for deceiving Indo-Israeli axis and they have nothing to lose. The duo is instrumental in plunging the fortunes of USA and would not rest till its downfall. Both Russia and China are merrily watching the endgame from the sidelines with a twinkle in their eyes.
Pakistan nuclear program is under intense assault of Jewish-Indian influenced US think tanks, journalists and officials. Latest piece appearing in Sunday Times is about a crack unit of US Army receiving training to snatch back stolen nukes from the grasp of militants working inside Pakistan’s nuclear installations. According to another report which appeared at the fag end of last year, this super unit had dashed in white heat on learning that militants had snatched some nukes and had reached Dubai to recover the nukes but returned when told that the red alert was false. It was a Rambo like story and a vain attempt to glamorize US Army having a rough time in Afghanistan against rag tag Afghan Taliban. The so-called crack unit is better advised to stay put in its stable and take care of US arsenal which is vulnerable to attacks by the youth getting radicalized in the west. If it hazards to land here it will earn ignominy and nothing else.
Rolf Mowatt-Larson has stolen ideas from the article of Jasbir Rakhra (member IPCS) and so many other articles written by US think tanks on the vulnerability of Pak nukes. He has built his case on the basis of following acts of terror which took place in Pakistan in 2007-09: attack on an air force bus in Sargodha on the main road in November 2007; another on a children school bus along main GT road near Kamra complex; arrest of six men in Sargodha in August 2009 intending to carryout suicide attack; attack on the gate of ordnance factory in Wah; attack on GHQ entrance gate in October 2009,attack on entrance of Naval HQ in Islamabad in December 2009.
He has purposely misconstrued all these attacks by wrongfully stating that these were carried out on nuclear related installations. Purpose was to demonstrate to the world that extremists in Pakistan are desperate to acquire nukes, which are insecure and thus a justification for USA to secure them. It gives a clear lead that all these attacks were sponsored by RAW and CIA.
He next jumps to a comical conclusion that among 8-12000 persons working in various nuclear related installations, a very large number are bound to be sympathizers of terrorists. In his jaundiced view they pose greatest threat to security of nukes. Ironically, such harebrained ideas devoid of logic and rationality floated by nitwits are not rebuffed by US leaders or intellectuals but are read with interest and the authors patted and encouraged to add more juice to their stories.
Countless cooked up stories have been circulated in the last few years which are with a definite agenda of denuclearizing Pakistan. In order to get hold of Pak nukes they have been intentionally projecting Pakistan in poor light and expressing deep apprehensions about the security of nuclear arsenal. Idea is to systematically condition the minds of all concerned and to pave the way for Indo-US-Israeli nexus to grab the nukes or to seek UN intervention. It is now quite clear that peaceful regions in Pakistan were deliberately made restive and terrorism stoked jointly by India, USA and Israel to justify intervention and deprive Pakistan of its nuclear arsenal.
It is simply nauseating to keep listening to their stale story of nukes falling into wrong hands. It should be made clear to the American leaders that there are no wrong hands among 170 million Pakistanis. They will die of hunger but would not like to part with nuclear arsenal which acts as a symbol of pride and security for them. The only wrong hands which are bent upon stealing our nukes by hook or by crook are American hands and none else. The Indians and Israelis, past masters in faking and in art of thievery, are giving a helping hand in the planned robbery.
Drama of extremist threat or threat from within nuclear facilities is being played up to dupe the world and frighten Pakistan so as to pave the way for pinching nukes. Blackwater has been outsourced to conduct an attack on one of our nuclear facility. The biggest threat to our nukes is from Indo-US-Israeli nexus which is constantly scheming to disable our nuclear program.
Paid think tanks, journalists and officials in USA are advised to stop bluffing and stop selling their outlandish and outdated themes of fragmentation of Pakistan and vulnerability of Pak nukes since none other than mentally retarded people or partners in crime would buy them and get amused. They should also bring a change in their discriminatory behavior; refrain from spreading fear and chasing phantom of Osama and stop stoking war on terror. Instead they should earnestly work towards finding ways how to put an end to this self-destructive war and how to ensure safe and honorable exit of US-NATO troops from Afghan swamp. They should also come out with a comprehensive paper highlighting as to why the US has failed in all it’s laid down objectives in Afghanistan. They should identify root causes of terrorism and suggest remedies; how to resolve chronic disputes of Kashmir and Palestine; how to minimize anti-Americanism within Muslim world; how to get rid of paranoia about homeland security; how to avert clash of civilization and to promote inter faith harmony so as to make the world peaceful. The US still has time to avert disaster if it brings a visible change in its attitude and self-destructive policies and adopts the path of conciliation, peace and harmony.

IPL: Pakistan vows to take revenge after the Auction snub

After the insult inflicted on 11 Pakistani players in the Indian Premier League Auction, Pakistan has decided to hit back India. According to reports coming from Times Now, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Mallik has called for a complete boycott and said: “If they don’t respect our people, we will not respect them. The PM has already canceled the visit of a delegation to India. If they act like this with us, we will pay them back in the same way. I see sportsmen as ambassadors, if India is firm on its commitment to friendly relations, it should recognize the importance of ourplayers as ambassadors. What happened at the auction implies that India is not taking us seriously at all.”
News also comes in to us that Pakistan is planning to cut-off all sporting ties with India. If this thing happens then Pakistan’s Hockey Team may not travel to India for 2010 Hockey World Cup. Meanwhile there have been big discussions in Pakistani Parliament about boycotting India in all the sectors. The Pakistan Government is also planning to ban screening of Indian Films. Sports Minister Aijaz Jhakrani said: “After all that we did, the way India behaved is unacceptable. We will give them a fitting response. I agree with what other ministers have said. When Pakistan faces an issue of national importance everyone unites.”
The Pakistan Cricket Board also took the opportunity to blame the Indian Government for its irresponsible behavior as former PCB Chairman Tauqir Zia stated: “IPL and the BCCI “do not act independently, they act on instruction of the government.We should have forseen that our players would never been selected for IPL. There were several indications; the Mumbai attack, the visa issue, and the ouster of the World Cup from Pakistan”
It seems that Pakistan are determined to hit back and the only way they can seek an equal revenge is through boycotting all the ties with India. The neighbours who were coming close to each other over the last few years are once again thrown apart via IPL.

Increasing rate of corruption in India Army

At least four generals of the Indian Army are suspected to be involved in a land scandal in Sukhna cantonment in West Bengal.

IPLs Pakistan snub pre-planned: report

If sources in the Indian Premier League are to be believed, there may have been a consensus among franchisees over not to bid for any of the Pakistan players on offer during the January 19 auction, Zeecric.com said in a report.

Indian Sports Minister MS Gill has said on record that the ministry had no hand in Pak players’ snub as it never issued any advisory against picking cricketers from the neighboring country, but reports in a leading Indian news daily suggest that the orders may have been reversed at the last moment, which led to all the drama during the high-profile event.

According to reports, while the BCCI had initially directed IPL as well as the various franchisees to pick and treat Pakistan players like all the others, adding that it would even talk to the govt and try to get the required permissions and visas for those picked, the situation changed dramatically just a few days before the auction.

Reportedly, the BCCI, after talking to govt. officials, said that there was no guarantee of the players’ availability during the third edition of the annual event, thereby forcing the franchisees to ignore the players.

The possible disruptions of matches (that feature Pakistan players) to be held in Mumbai by Shiv Sena and MNS also prompted the franchisee owners to overlook Pakistan players.

The Shiv Sena had a few days earlier threatened to disrupt matches in Mumbai that feature Australian players to protest against racial attacks on Indians in Australia.

“Security is a huge factor and it’s only the team owners who will have to take up the responsibility. BCCI is not responsible for internal security in the IPL. The board had asked the government if the Pakistanis would be safe in a place like Mumbai. The answer wasn’t too convincing with a senior state government functionary pointing out that barely a year had elapsed since the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai," the newspaper quoted a BCCI insider as saying.

"There was no direction from the board. The indication from the board was that the Pakistani players are shortlisted and you guys can bid for them. But they may not be welcomed in a place like Mumbai," the official added.

Indians Kill ‘Aman Ki Asha’ Campaign At IPL Auction

  • None of the 11 Pakistani cricketers hired by Indian celebrities in IPL auction
  • Chhota Rajan’s mafia Gang of RAW, Shiv Sena forced bidders, organizers to ignore Pak cricketers
  • IPL Chief Lalit Modi dances to the tunes of Hindu Extremists, drug racketeers & match fixing mafia
  • Modi emerges as Mafia’s top facilitator for drugs trafficking —IPL Chief convicted in drug cases while charged for cheating, forgery
  • Shiv Sena men torched Modi’s home for pressurizing him to arrange slaying of Pak cricketers from IPL-3
  • Rajan Gang’s Ramesh Gupta alias Pappu remained attached with Modi in South Africa edition of IPL
The peace dove with the name of Aman Ki Asha (Hope of Peace), flown by a local media group The Times of India, jointly with a Pakistani Media group a couple of weeks back,
was slaughtered brutally here on Tuesday by the Indian Business tycoons, Showbiz and cricket celebrities when none of the 11 Pakistani cricketers’ name was even given a look at the IPL3 cricket auction giving a big blow to peace overtures through sports and left millions of Indian and international cricket fans in a big shock as even world’s most sizzling all-rounder of the world in the T-20 form of cricket Shahid Afridi found no bidders.
All-rounder Kieron Pollard was the star attraction with the bidding going into a tie-breaker. Pollard was finally bagged by Mumbai Indians for $750,000 but the amount for the tie-breaker has not been disclosed.
Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers were involved in another tie-breaker for ex-ICL player Shane Bond. The bid was finally won by Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders for $750,000(Rs 3.41 crore) but again the tie-breaker amount wasn’t disclosed. Rajasthan Royals bought ex-ICL player from Australia Damien Martyn for $100,000. West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach was bought by Deccan Chargers for $720,000. Chennai Super Kings won the bid for Sri Lankan Thissara Perera for $50,000. Rajasthan Royals bagged Australian Adam Voges for $50,000.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that the Pakistani cricketers were axed in a rather humiliated manner from the IPL through a premeditated campaign, organized jointly by RAW underworld Mafia wing and Mumbai-based extremist Hindu outfit Shiv Sena while the IPL Chief Lalit Kuma Modi was the key actor of the whole drama and played a major role in not only motivating the bidders to refrain from hiring Pakistani Cricketers but also created a variety of documentary problems and doubts about the participation of Pakistani players in the 3rd IPL.
The Daily Mail’s findings reveal that the move to oust Pakistani Cricketers from Indian Premier League’s 3rd session started soon after the 2nd session of IPL ended last year. However, the drive gained momentum by the end of last year when RAW directed its Underworld Mafi Gang, known as Chhot Rajan Gang to start its operation to keep Pakistani cricketers out of the IPL. These findings reveal that in the meantime, RAW also activated its other baby outfit Shiv Sena to launch a parallel ‘crusade against participation of Pakistani cricketers by persuading the IPL organizers and the bidders.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that in this direction, Chhota Rajan gang’s local chief Paulson Joseph started contacting Lalit Modi and asked him to initiate a drive to block the entry of Pakistani cricketers into IPL. These investigations also indicate the gang’s Cape Town-based South Africa Chief Ramesh Gupta alias Pappu also paid at least six visits to India and haled meetings with Lalit Modi in Mumbai to persuade him to create some technical reasons to block Pak Cricketers’ participation in the 3rd IPL. The Daily Mail’s investigation also disclose that Ramesh Gupta alias Pappu is not handling drugs related affairs in South Africa but is also the head of the betting and Match Fixing racket of the Gang and generated billions of rupees for the gang during the last IPL edition that was held in South Africa.
The Daily Mail’s investigations reveal that Lalit Modi finally informed Pappu and Joseph that he could arrange certain documents related problems to keep Pak cricketers away. These findings indicate that following this, Lalit Modi on December 10, 2009 announced that the Pakistani cricketers had missed the deadline for the third IPL and the only way they can be part of the Twenty20 tournament is through the January 19 auction. Modi said the Pakistani cricketers missed the bus by failing to get visas by the December 7 deadline and the IPL franchises have already replaced them with fresh recruits. It was followed by certain visa problems by the Indian authorities for Pak players. But it appears that it was not enough as both the Rajan Gang as well the Shiv Sena militants wanted to seal-off all the possibilities of participation of Pak players.
The Daily Mail’s findings further reveal that when Modi expressed his inability to do anything more in this direction, he was threatened severely on phone by the Shiv Sena Bal Thackeray, who after losing the general elections for the third successive term, was desperate to play anti-Pakistan card to regain some popularity and thus had already announced after the tragic Mumbai terror attack that his party wont allow any Pakistani Cricketer to play in India. These Findings reveal that when Modi ignored the Shiv Sena chief’s threats, the Shiv Sena activist organized to burn Modi’s house to give him a final warning to meet their demands.
The Daily Mail’s investigations indicate that on 19th December 2009, Shiv Sena operatives set Modi’s home, Anand Bungalow in the upscale Gandhigram Road area of Juhu, close to the ISKCON Temple, in north-west Mumbai ablaze and warned him to come up with some imitate steps to bar Pak cricketers, though it is still “officially” reported that Modi’s house caught fire due to certain electric short circuiting. But Mumbai’s underworld knows very well as to who was behind this mysterious blaze.
The Daily Mail’s investigations indicate that this development scared Modi to the maximum and he embarked upon another journey to solve the problem he was facing. This journey it is revealed, started from Mumbai and ended up at Cape town South Africa where Modi held a detailed meeting with Rajan gang’s Pappu and forwarded him a proposal, following which, the Rajan Gang was to use its terrorizing influence to help Modi in convincing the bidders of the IPL auction to refrain from bidding for Pak players during the auction. Pappu agreed to the same while on his return, to Mumbai, Modi was able to convince Shiv Sena Chief for the same.
The daily Mail’s findings indicate that after this development, Modi started the mission of discouraging the IPL bidders, including business tycoons like Ambani and showbiz celebrities like Shlipa Shetty, Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta etc. Modi tried to convince the bidders that there were very little possibilities of Pak cricketers being able to make to the IPL due to certain documents related issues and security reasons. These findings indicate that in the beginning, the bidders, particularly Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta were not convinced by Modi’s philosophy but when Shiv Sena and Rajan Gang chipped in, the trick worked and it resulted in humiliated ouster of all the aspiring Pakistani cricketers from the IPL-3
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that despite following the orders of the bosses at Lodhi Road New Delhi, the Rajan Gang didn’t miss the opportunity of making millions of dollars by winning bets over no Pak player playing in IPL-3. According to sources in betting networks, Pappu-led betting mafia of Rajan Gang won around three billion US dollars by betting on ouster of Pak players from IPL-3.
The Daily Mail’s findings reveal that Modi himself has been a facilitator of Chhota Rajan gang’s match fixing and drug mafia wings. These findings indicate that Modi was promoted to the current position by the Rajan gang and it was on the behest of Rajan Gang that the venue for the 2nd IPL session was shifted to South Africa from India by Lalit Modi, hiding behind the notions of security threats in India after the 26/11 incident. It is believed that the Rajan gang not only minted billions of dollars through match fixing and betting during IPL tourney last year in South Africa but huge drug deals were also finalized on the sidelines of the tournament, with the notice of Lalit Modi.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that owing to Rajan Gang’s strong hold over Modi. IPL never opted to introduce anti-match fixing practices in the IPL and infect it refused an offer by the ICC in this direction. These findings indicate that to facilitate the Pappu and company, the IPL rejected an offer to use ICC’s anti-corruption and security experts in South Africa for the tournament, preferring to use its own staff.
The ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit is used for international tournaments, but the body does not make it mandatory for domestic competitions. However since it attracts highly paid leading players from all over the world, The IPL and the BCCI are bound to apply the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and ant-match fixing system.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that as the IPL landed in the hands of the underworld mafia in South Africa, the match fixing and corruption started emerging rapidly. Former Pakistan Captain Javed Miandad feels there is a serious possibility of matches being fixed in the cash-rich Twenty20 events of IPL. Miandad said the league in South Africa was witnessed to some surprising results where teams surprisingly lost from clearly winning positions. “There is a definite smell of match-fixing coming from the IPL where strange things are happening,” said Mindad.
“I don’t consider the IPL as cricket, it is a joke. It is strange that players who are not regular bowlers have taken hat-tricks in the league. Teams are losing matches from winning positions,” he said.
Miandad feels the International Cricket Council (ICC) needs to step in and check possible corruption in the event. “If at all such Twenty20 cricket leagues must be held they should be held under the direct supervision of the ICC or else there will always be fear of corruption taking place in matches,” he said.
Miandad said it was strange that the ICC’s anti-corruption unit was not present in the IPL despite the big money at stake and the number of foreign players involved in the competition.
The Daily Mail’s findings indicate that Lalit Modi has a history of being involved in drug trafficking and fraudulent activities. The Daily Mail’s findings reveal that In 2005, Modi figured in a power struggle that resulted in Sharad Pawar, an influential politician and national cabinet minister, ousting former Indian cricket supremo and ICC chief Jagmohan Dalmiya in BCCI elections .But, Modi’s bid for membership of India’s main cricket body hit a snag. The outgoing board appointed a committee to investigate drug charges against Modi when he was a student at a US university in 1985.
The Daily mail’s findings reveal that Lalit Modi was charged and pleaded guilty to drug possession, assault and kidnapping case in 1985 while he was a student in Duke University, USA. He was sentenced to 2 years in prison and came back to India after being released on probation.
In 2007 a PIL was filed in Mumbai High court challenging his position in BCCI on pretext of his criminal history. Though the court refused to unseat Modi, it asked the BCCI “to implement stringent regulatory measures so that those involved in criminal cases, not just illegal drugs but other serious charges have no place in administration”. But unsurprisingly BCCI paid no heed to the court’s advice.
The Daily Mail’s investigations further reveal that Lalit Modi was once at Lord’s to launch the charitable British Asian Cup but he was embarrassed to a Luke warm response as the Indian Premier League commissioner’s previous commitments to good causes were the subject of a court case in India.
These findings indicate that in an on-the-field ceremony Modi handed over a cheque for £780,000 to the Rajasthan Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. But not all the money cleared in its bank account and Nagrik Morcha, a nongovernmental organisation, brought accusations to the Rajasthan high court in March 2008 that Modi was guilty of “cheating and forgery”. Modi was granted “anticipatory bail”, ensuring he would not be held in custody for what is otherwise a non-bailable offence.
Modi’s lawyers told the court that the cheque was merely “symbolic” of the IPL’s intention to contribute to the fund, and that all but £26,000 had reached its destination. The rest, they added, “could have been paid in total but due to financial crises two of the sponsors, namely Citibank and Kingfisher, withheld the amount due to be paid.”
The Daily Mail’s findings further indicate that in February 2009, Modi got a three-week interim protection against arrest from the Bombay High Court in a criminal case against him in Rajasthan.
The High Court allowed Modi to approach appropriate court in Rajasthan for seeking further relief within three weeks, directing that he not be arrested in this period. Modi feared arrest by Rajasthan police after an FIR was lodged against him for cheating, impersonation, and fabrication of documents at Nagaur, Rajasthan on January 27, 2009.
Modi, had purchased land in Nagaur in September 2004, but it was alleged that he was not present in the office of deputy registrar when sale deed in his favour was registered.
The IPL chief therefore filed an anticipatory bail application at Bombay High Court, alleging that FIR was lodged only to “pressurise him” and stop him from contesting forthcoming elections of Rajasthan Cricket Association, of which he is the incumbent president

India: Power or Downfall

Sajjad Shaukat

One of the major causes that led to the First World War was Emperor William’s ambitions for the German Empire to be a world power. He believed in an uncompromising policy of ‘power or downfall’ which ultimately resulted in the ‘downfall’ of the empire. Similarly, it is the misfortune of South Asia that India has been trying to endanger the region’s peace by aspiring to become a ‘world power’, or at least a ‘regional power’ in wake of modern world trends like renunciation of war, peaceful settlement of disputes and economic development.
Over the years, India has not only been developing its conventional and nuclear arsenals, but is also obtaining latest weapons from the US, Russia and Israel in violation of the Non Proliferation Treaty In this context, presuming a peace-loving China as an enemy New Delhi often justifies arms accumulation, while in practice India has constantly deployed its forces along the Pakistani border. As regards Indian belligerent approach, it is the result of India’s shattered hope of intimidating other neighbouring countries, especially Pakistan which the former considers a continuous obstacle in the way of its designs.  
Under the pretext of Talibinisation, the Indian secret agency, RAW, has well established its tentacles in Afghanistan, and has been running secret operations against Pakistan from its consulates located near the Pak Afghan border. It has spent millions of dollars in Afghanistan to strengthen its grip in order to get strategic depth against Islamabad.  
Meanwhile, prime minister Gilani and  Foreign Minister Qureshi have repeatedly stated: “India supports terrorism in Pakistan, and its evidence will be shown to the western countries at the right occasion.” Indeed, this is in coordination with the statements of the ISPR spokesman Major General Athar Abbas who revealed that during the ongoing military operations huge cache of arms and ammunition had been captured while it was being shifted from Afghanistan. 
Perhaps, frustrated in achieving its aims of becoming a world power, and a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council, now the Indian rulers have started openly threatening nuclear powers like Pakistan and China. In this backdrop, the Indian Army Chief, General Deepak Kapoor, vocally revealed on December 29 that the Indian army “is now revising its five-year old doctrine” and is preparing for a “possible two front war with China and Pakistan.”  
However in response to New Delhi’s threat, Pakistan’s chairman, General Tariq Majeed, stated: “The Indian army chief’s statement exhibits a lack of strategic acumen.. fix India on a self destructive mechanism.” 
It is surprising to note that in more than seven states, India itself faces separatist movements which are the result of acute poverty and social injustices. Particularly, Maoist movement that has been raging in West Bengal, and has now expanded to other regions including Maharashtra. At present, it is a popular insurgency by the downtrodden who have massive support of the people for their ideology. On October 31 last year, the New York Times wrote: “India’s Maoist rebels are now present in 20 states and have killed more than 900 Indian security officers...India’s rapid economic growth has made it an emerging global power but also deepened stark inequalities in society.” Thus, by neglecting all these ground realties New Delhi has been advancing towards a self-destructive path.  
USA’s dependence on Pakistan for war against terrorism and for close economic cooperation with China will roll back the Indian clandestine agenda which is part of its regional ambition against Islamabad and Beijing. Nonetheless, like the failed foreign policy of Emperor William 2, the Indian policy of ‘power or downfall’ is bound to result in a nuclear catastrophe in the region as ‘nuclearised’ Pakistan and China cannot ignore their defence, while their adversary is determined to act upon its aggressive designs.

2010ء پاکستان کیلئے بھاری ثابت ہو سکتا ہے؟

سکندر خان بلوچ
یہ ہیں وہ الفاظ جو امریکی سفیر پیٹرسن نے 7 جنوری کو کراچی میں ایک خطاب کے دوران کہے۔ اسے وارننگ سمجھا جائے‘ دھمکی سمجھا جائے‘ مشورہ سمجھا جائے یا صرف پیشین گوئی لیکن اس حقیقت سے انکار نہیں کیا جا سکتا کہ پاکستانی سالمیت سخت خطرے میں ہے۔ اگر امریکی ایسا کہتے ہیں تو یہ بے مقصد نہیں ہو سکتا۔ حقائق سے چشم پوشی خطرناک نتائج کو جنم دے سکتی ہے۔
اس وقت پاکستان کئی قسم کے اندرونی و بیرونی خطرات میں گھرا ہے اور یہ سب مسئلے امریکہ ہی کے پیدا کردہ ہیں۔ ہمارا سب سے بڑا مسئلہ تو دہشت گردی ہے جس نے ہماری نہ صر ف معیشت تباہ کی ہے بلکہ افراتفری‘ لاقانونیت اور غیر یقینی جیسے حالات پیدا کر کے ہمیں تباہی کے دہانے تک پہنچا دیا ہے جسے اب کنٹرول کرنا شاید ہمارے بس میں ہی نہیں رہا۔ بیرونی طور پر امریکہ‘ بھا رت اور اسرائیل پاکستان کی سالمیت کے خلاف سرگرم ہیں۔ یہ تینوں ممالک فرنٹ لائن میں ہیں لیکن ان کی پشت پر کئی اور بھی ہمارے دوست نما دشمن موجود ہیں۔ تشویشناک صورت حال یہ ہے کہ امریکہ ظاہری طور پر ہمارا اتحادی ہے ڈنڈے کے زور پر ہم سے تمام مطالبات منوا رہا ہے ہم میں حکم عدولی کی جرأت بھی نہیں لیکن پھر بھی مجرم ہم ہی ہیں۔ امریکی عادت ہے کہ جب وہ کسی ملک کی سالمیت کے خلاف ہوتا ہے تو پہلے بہانے تراش کر جنگ کی فضا تیار کرتا ہے مثلاً 1950 میں شمالی کوریا کا حملہ روکنے کے بہانے’’پولیس ایکشن‘‘ کے نام پر ’’انچان لینڈنگ‘‘ کر کے کوریا میں اپنی فوج داخل کر دی۔ اس جنگ میں تقریباً بیس لاکھ بے گناہ کورین سویلین اور ڈیڑھ لاکھ چینی زندگیوں سے ہاتھ دھو بیٹھے‘ فوجی اموات اس کے علاوہ تھیں جن کی تعداد 3½ لاکھ سے زیادہ بتائی جاتی ہے۔
پھر اگست 1964 میں ویت نام میں فوجیں داخل کر دیں۔ بہانہ یہ بنایا کہ Gulf of Tonkin میں شمالی ویت نامیوں نے امریکی جہازوں پر حملہ کیا ہے۔ اس جنگ میں بھی بے گناہ سویلین کی اموات لگ بھگ بیس لاکھ ہیں۔ فوجی اموات اس کے علاوہ ہیں جن کی تعداد 12 لاکھ تک بتائی جاتی ہے ۔ایک لاکھ کمبوڈین بھی لقمہ اجل بنے حالانکہ کمبوڈیا اس جنگ کا حصہ نہیں تھا۔ 60 ہزار امریکی بھی مرے اور ڈیڑھ لاکھ زخمی ہوئے لیکن دخل اندازی کی عادت سے امریکہ باز نہ آیا۔ پھر عراق کو ورغلا کر 1980 میں ایران پر حملہ کرا دیا اس طویل جنگ میں بھی ہزاروں کے حساب سے اموات ہوئیں۔ 1990 میں پہلے عراق سے کویت پر حملہ کرایا اور پھر کویت آزاد کرانے کے بہانے عراق پر چڑھائی کر دی۔ 60 بلین ڈالرز سعودی عرب سے جنگ کا خرچہ وصول کر لیا۔ القاعدہ کو سبق سکھانے کے بہانے 2001 میں افغانستان پر حملہ کیا۔ 2003 میں تباہ کن ہتھیار رکھنے کے الزام میں عراق پر دوبارہ چڑھائی کر دی۔ یہ تباہ کن ہتھیار تو برآمد نہ ہو سکے لیکن یہ دونوں جنگیں تاحال جاری ہیں۔ معلوم نہیں یہ جنگیں ختم ہونگی بھی یا نہیں لیکن اب تک ان دونوں ممالک میںکئی لاکھ بے گناہ لوگ جان سے ہاتھ دھو بیٹھے ہیں ۔
حالات سے ظاہر ہوتا ہے کہ امریکہ کا موجودہ ہدف خدانخواستہ پاکستان ہی ہے جس کے لئے فضا مکمل طور پر تیار کی جا چکی ہے۔ اب اس میں تو کسی کو شک نہیں کہ 9/11 کا واقعہ مسلمانوںکے خلاف ایک صہیونی سازش تھی جس کا مقصد پوری دنیا کو مسلمانوں کیخلاف لڑانا تھا۔ مسلمانوں اور عیسائیوں کو آپس میں لڑا کر دونوں طاقتوںکو اس قدر کمزور کرنا تھا تاکہ صہیونیت پوری دنیا پر حاوی ہو جائے جس کا وہ ہزاروں سالوں سے خواب دیکھ رہے ہیں۔ اسکی عملی شکل اسوقت ہمارے سامنے ہے۔ امریکہ معاشی طور پر بہت کمزور ہو چکا ہے۔ تمام مسلم ممالک پور ی دنیا میں دہشت گرد تصور ہوتے ہیں اور امریکہ کے حالیہ ایک فرمان کے مطابق اول تو مسلمانوں کو امریکہ میں داخل نہیں ہونے دیا جائے گا اور اگر مجبوری ہوئی تو انکی برہنہ تلاشی لی جائیگی۔ اس سے زیادہ مسلمانوں کی اور زیادہ بے عزتی بھلا کیا ہو سکتی ہے؟ عیسائیوں اور مسلمانوں کی اس باہمی جنگ سے سب سے زیادہ فائدہ بھی اسرائیل اور صہیونیت کو پہنچ رہاہے۔ اس کی صرف ایک مثال ہی کافی ہے ۔ اسرائیل کے تیار کردہ سیکورٹی آلات اس وقت تمام مغربی دنیا میں استعمال ہو رہے ہیں۔ ان آلات کا سب سے بڑا خریدار امریکہ ہے جس نے صرف ایک سال میں تقریباً تین بلین ڈالرز ان آلات پر خرچ کئے۔ اس ایک مثال سے اسرائیل کی آمدنی کا اندازہ لگایا جا سکتا ہے ۔
پاکستان کے خلاف جنگی منصوبہ تقریباً تیار ہو چکا ہے جس کے خدوخال واضح نظر آ رہے ہیں۔ بھارت ’’را‘‘ کی معرفت دہشت گردی میں مصروف ہے۔ سی آئی اے اور اسرائیلی موساد ’’بلیک واٹر‘‘ کے روپ میں ’’را‘‘ کے ساتھی ہیں۔ دہشت گردی کے روپ میں ’’القاعدہ‘‘ یہودیوں کی سب سے بڑی اختراع ہے۔ دہشت گردی کی ہر چھوٹی بڑی کارروائی اسی کے کھاتے میں ڈال کر پوری دنیا کیلئے ہَوا بنا دیا ہے حالانکہ القاعدہ کے خالق بھی وہ خود ہی ہیں۔ حیران کن بات یہ ہے کہ القاعدہ کے خلاف پچھلے دس سال سے پوری دنیا لڑ رہی ہے لیکن آج تک نہ تو کوئی اس کا ہیڈ کوارٹر پکڑا گیا ہے اور نہ ہی اس کا سربراہ اسامہ بن لادن اور مزید حیران کن بات یہ ہے کہ القاعدہ کیخلاف جتنی بھی جنگ شدت اختیار کر رہی ہے اس سے یہ کمزور ہونے کی بجائے دن بہ دن مضبوط ہو رہی ہے بلکہ مزید پھیل رہی ہے اور اب تقریباً تقریباً تمام مسلمان ممالک میں بقول امریکی پالیسی کے یہ نیٹ ورک موجود ہے۔ القاعدہ پر قابو پانے کے بہانے عراق اور افغانستان تو تباہ کئے جا چکے ہیں۔ پاکستان پر شدید قسم کی دہشت گردی مسلط کر دی گئی ہے ۔ یہی حالت یمن‘ شام اور افریقی مسلم ممالک کی ہے۔ اس جنگ کو War on Terror کہہ لیں یا War against Alqaida مقصد ایک ہی ہے۔ اب یہ جنگ تقریباً تقریباً عالمی جنگ کی شکل اختیار کر چکی ہے لیکن’’ القاعدہ‘‘کہیں قابو ہی نہیں آ رہی۔ یہ دنیا کی واحد جنگ ہے جس میں دشمن پر جتنا حملہ کیا جائے وہ اتنا مضبوط ہو رہا ہے تو اس سے ایک ہی نتیجہ نکلتا ہے کہ یا تو ’’القاعدہ‘‘ کوئی ایسی سپر نیچرل تنظیم ہے جسے مافوق الفطرت طاقتوں کی پشت پناہی حاصل ہے جسے ختم کرنا انسانی بس میں ہی نہیں یا پھر یہ صہیونی میڈیا کی وہ ’’من گھڑت‘‘ تنظیم ہے جسے یہودی میڈیا کبھی ختم نہیں ہونے دے گا جب تک خدانخواستہ مسلم دنیا مکمل طور پر تباہ نہ ہو جائے۔
صہیونی میڈیا کے مطابق دہشت گردی موجودہ دور کا سب سے بڑا خطرہ ہے۔ دہشت گردی کی ’’ماں‘‘ القاعدہ ہے اور القاعدہ اس وقت پاکستان کے سرحدی پہاڑوں میں پور ی طاقت سے قائم و دائم ہے جہاں سے یہ اپنا نیٹ ورک پوری مسلم دنیا اور خصوصاً پاکستان میں چلا رہی ہے۔ دہشت گردی یا انتہا پسندی کی تمام تنظیمیں القاعدہ ہی کے مختلف روپ ہیں۔ صہیونی میڈیا نے یہ راز بھی افشا کیا ہے کہ ان کی ایک مجلس شوریٰ کوئٹہ میں بھی موجود ہے۔ چونکہ القاعدہ کا ہیڈ کوارٹر پاکستان میں ہے اسی لئے تمام دنیا میں پاکستان ہی دہشت گردی کا مرکز ہے جس کا بھارت امریکہ اور برطانیہ پوری طاقت سے شور مچا رہے ہیں۔ ابھی حال ہی میں نئی دہلی میں دولت مشترکہ کے سپیکرز کی کانفرنس میں خطاب کرتے ہوئے بھارتی وزیراعظم نے فرمایا ۔ "Extremism is the biggest threat to the tenets of democracy" اور بھارتی وزیر اعظم جب بھی دہشت گردی یا "Extremism" کا نام لیتے ہیں تو پوری دنیا کو پتہ ہے کہ انکا اشارہ کس طرف ہوتا ہے۔ اکثر اوقات تو وہ اشاروں والا تکلف بھی نہیں کرتے بلکہ بلا واسطہ پاکستان کو ’’دہشت گردی کا مرکز‘‘ کہہ کر پوری دنیا سے اس کے خلاف جنگ کرنے کی اپیل کرتے ہیں۔
یہاں یہ واضح کرنا ضروری ہے کہ آجکل ’’را‘‘ کی ایک خفیہ رپورٹ کسی طرح انٹر نیٹ پر آ گئی ہے جس سے یہ ثبوت ملتا ہے کہ سی آئی اے اور ’’را‘‘ نے پاکستان کی ایٹمی طاقت تباہ کرنے کا معاہدہ 2001 میں کیا تھا۔ مزید یہ کہ موساد سی آئی اے اور ’’را‘‘ تینوں ایجنسیاں مل کر پاکستان میں دہشت گردی کرا رہی ہیں۔ بھارت کے پہاڑی علاقوں میں پیدا ہونے والی پوست (منشیات) جس کی قیمت کئی بلین ڈالرز ہے کا ایک چوتھائی حصہ پاکستان میں دہشت گردی پر خرچ ہو رہا ہے۔
خطرے کی بات یہ ہے کہ پچھلے دو ماہ میں کچھ ایسے واقعات رونما ہوئے ہیں یا پھر موساد اورسی آئی اے کے کارنامے ہیں جن کی وجہ سے پاکستان میں موجود القاعدہ کے خلاف حملے کا جواز بنا لیا گیا ہے۔ نومبر میں میجر ندال ملک حسن نے فورٹ ہڈ ملٹری بیس ٹیکساس امریکہ پر اندھا دھند فائرنگ کر کے 13 سولجرز مار دیئے اور 40 زخمی ہوئے۔ پھر کرسمس کے موقعہ پر نائیجیرین نوجوان عمر فاروق عبدالمطلب نے امریکی طیارہ تباہ کر نے کی کوشش کی۔ 30 دسمبر کو افغانستان میں خوست ائیر بیس پرسی آئی اے سنٹر کو خودکش دھماکے سے اڑانے والے ہمام خلیل نے آٹھ آدمی موقعہ پر مار دیے۔ ان میں سات سی آئی اے کے لوگ تھے ۔ امریکی نظر میں یہ سب القاعدہ کے لوگ تھے۔ ہمام خلیل ابو ملال البلادی صاحب کا تو حکیم اللہ محسود امیر تحریک طالبان پاکستان کے ساتھ فوٹو بھی شائع کر دیا گیا ہے۔ ان تمام حضرات کا ظاہری طورپر پاکستان سے کسی قسم کا تعلق نہیں لیکن چونکہ یہ تمام حملہ آور مسلمان تھے لہٰذا دہشت گرد میڈیا نے ثابت کر دیا ہے کہ دہشت گردی کے تمام راستے پاکستان کی طرف جا رہے ہیں اس لئے ہر بُرائی کی جڑ پاکستان قرار دیا جا رہا ہے۔ اس سیناریو میں امریکی سفیر کی دھمکی یا پیشین گوئی بے مقصد نہیں۔ خدا پاکستان کی حفاظت کرے ۔ آمین!

Chief Beneficiaries of War on Terror

By Zaheerul Hassan

Global War on Terror  is a consequence of 9 11 attacks on twin towers. Still nobody can authentically say that attack was planned by Jewish or Muslim extremists but as a result of it some bitter facts emerged,  American lost 3000 individuals in twin tower attacks.  US led  Forces have lost over 1684 soldiers. Their more than 6584 troops have suffered serious injuries since September 2001. the heavy losses in terms of finances are major set back to the economies of USA and its allies.Pakistan has also been forced to be a key player of
Global War on Terror . According to USA reports, Islamabad is facing major impact of the War and guerilla warfare has enveloped complete Pakistan. Over 3000 soldiers and civilian were martyred and many injured as result of war against terror..  Economy of USA and her NATO allies depleting continuously. Cancer of militancy is continuously maligning the whole world speedily.gulf between two civilizations has also been widened and knocking the door of final nuclear war. However India, Israel and former USA Bush were the main beneficiaries of  Global War on Terror.

USA, Israeli and Indian strategic relations are revolving around common interests like containing China, weakening Pakistan through political destabilization and targeting Iranian and Pakistani Nuke Programme. New Delhi has also made a secret agreement to provide bases to strike Iran. In this context Indian and Israeli forces heads have made various pacts during their visits to Tel Aviv and New Delhi. They have also made ingress in number of American and Western think tanks and media groups. They are using their plate forms for criticizing Muslim countries, their policies and peaceful nuke capabilities. For example on January 17, 2010 Times online again starting yelling against Pakistan nuke programme. The newspaper reported that extremists have access to Pakistani nukes programme. Moreover American has trained a special Pak unit to counter any threat to nukes. The article published in the Times online would be taken as mere try to divert IAEA and nuke experts’ attention from recent accidents of Indian nuke programme and Israeli brutality against Gazans.Christina Lamb   seem to be on payload RAW and Mossad. She is also notorious for spreading rumors regarding Pakistan nuke programme of and on while maliciously writing articles.

Coming back to the topic I would say that former President of USA Mr. Bush was also one of the main beneficiaries of
Global War on Terror.  To save his oil business, he   pushed American forces in Iraq on the pretext of CIA factious reports i.e. presence of weapons of mass destruction and converted peaceful Islamic world their enemy.

It is worth mentioning here that polices of lonely supper power is being influenced and controlled by Jewish and Hindu lobbies.  Most of the think tanks are being bribed by Israel and India. The think tanks affect the policy makers through publishing reports according to their masters’ designs. It’s an open secret now that India is using Afghan territory for training of terrorists and dispatching them to Pakistan.  Recently, Director General Inter Services Intelligence Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha while briefing Parliamentary Committee of National Security, regarding US new Afghan policy and its implication on Pakistan revealed that Afghan soil is being used for terrorist activities in Pakistan. He told that drugs smugglers of Afghanistan have been supporting the terrorists. Pasha also suggested the need that movement of terrorists on Pak-Afghan border should be monitor. He informed members of the committee that negotiations to tighten checking on bordering area between two countries were underway with all stakeholders. The committee members also suggested that Pakistan should be a key player in new Afghan policy. It also demanded to expel the name of Pakistan from policy of US new immigration list. Meanwhile Committee Chairman Raza Rabbani said US drone strikes on Pakistani soil was blatant violation of country's integrity and sovereignty. He said foreign ministry should raise the issue at diplomatic level.

He said that continuous drone attacks on Pakistani territory took away the nation's self-respect, integrity and sovereignty which cannot be tolerated and the issue has been raised with US. He said that idea of fencing the Pak-Afghan border would be kept in mind while preparing the recommendations for national security. To a question about drone strikes Raza Rabbani said that government has lodged protest against US drone strikes diplomatically several times but no vain. Prime Minister also used similar tone while addressing National Assembly in last week. Pakistan times and again also demanded that border with Afghanistan should be fenced but rulers of Kabul always opposed the suggestions.

The above facts dictate that India, Israel and former President Bush were the main beneficiaries and real stake holders of War. American think tanks should know that Washington is losing her credibility because of her tilt towards anti Muslim policies. Though, the American and NATO top brass now started realizing that purpose of Indian ingress in Afghanistan is not to support
Global War on Terror.  Her activities in Afghanistan are quite objectionable. On September 20, NATO commander, Gen. McChrystal in his report on the Afghan war had admitted: “Indian political and economic influence is increasing in Afghanistan including significant development efforts…is likely to exacerbate regional tensions.”

New Delhi under the pretext of Talibinisation of Afghanistan and Pakistan, has established her intelligence network with the support of Israeli Mossad. She is also running secret operations against Pakistan from its consulates in Mazar-i-Sharif, Jalalabad, Kandhar and other sensitive parts of the Pak Afghan border. She has spent millions of dollars in Afghanistan to strengthen its grip and has been sending well trained militants along with arms to Pakistan for attacking the security personnel including western nationals. The unrest in Balochistan is directly being supported by her. New Delhi has attained strategic depth against Pakistan and China while increasing her military troops in the country. Indian joint venture with Israel also reveals that they have decided to set up cantonments inside Afghanistan. In this respect, puppet regime of Hamid Karzai is encouraging India in using the Border Roads Organisation in constructing the ring roads and ignoring Pakistan demand of fencing the border.     

Notably, Indian doesn’t have the desire of rolling back her clandestine agenda against Pakistan and China. She will like to keep American engaged in Afghanistan even beyond 2011. Indian Intelligence agency has also planned some covert operations against USA NATO forces located in Afghanistan. USA if serious in leaving Afghanistan by 2011 then she must try to   establish publicly supported Afghan government. She must also pressurize New Delhi to resolve most burning issues like, Kashmir, border dispute with China and water conflicts with Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. US & NATO is ready to do more instead of displaying double standards while keeping the silence over the Pak - Afghan border crossers. They should also discontinue with the thoughts that Pak army is not trained and nukes are unsafe. The Western and American media must know that Pakistan is a responsible nuclear state and is also maintaining highly professional armed forces.

At number of occasions  Chief of Army Staff  General Ashfaq Parvez said that Pakistani security forces do not require any sort of  foreign training for countering insurgency, except for much specialised weapons, equipment and high technology. He also maintained that strategic decisions regarding where, when and how many troops need to be deployed in each operation or sector, purely would be based on our national interests and analysis.

President, Prime Minister and foreign office spokesman too categorically rejected western media campaign and American concern over Pakistan nukes and said that our Army is capable enough to protect our nuclear assets.

In short, USA should stop supporting Chief beneficiaries of
Global War on Terror (India and Israel), if serious in resolving global security issues. She should respect the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan while immediate stopping of Drone attacks. Pakistan should be given drone technology for elimination of militancy. Obama should discontinue with the Bush policies of colonialism, capturing, interfering and grabbing other countries’ natural resources. Talk with Afghan Taliban is the only solution to settle Afghan issue and achieving ultimate victory in Global War on Terror .

Indian Army Chief General Kapoor as 'silly'

US Ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson termed the recent remarks of Indian Army Chief General Kapoor as 'silly' and said that India and Pakistan should address their issues bilaterally to ensure progress in both countries.

In an exclusive interview with DawnNews on Thursday night, the US envoy said that there was enormous potential for economic progress if India and Pakistan got together.

The countries have complementary markets and commercial implications of the good relations between them are enormous, she said.

Anne Patterson said that if the Pakistan government has any evidence of Indian involvement in Balochistan, her country will be keen to play a role in addressing the situation.

She felt the immediate need for reestarting composite dialogue between India and Pakistan and resumption of confidence building measure.

Appreciating the efforts of Pakistan army in combating the terrorists in Swat and South Waziristan the US envoy said, Pakistan army has pursued this war very courageously and they have rendered big sacrifices in it.

She expressed confidence in Pakistan government for spending KLB's assistance money for development of infrastructure in FATA and South Waziristan.

She also lauded Benazir Income Support Programme saying this programme is being appreciated by the comity of nations adding there would be no harm if the money of US assistance reaches the deserving people through this programme.

To a question the American envoy said that withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan would be condition- based.

“We have to train and equip the Afghan security forces to replace the US and Nato troops before leaving the country”, the Ambassador said.

Commenting on the reports of presence of US security officials in Gwadar the envoy said, they visited the area to advance the visit of aid directors to assess the projects being financed through KLB.

She said there was no American in Pakistan without visa or proper documentation adding some people were floating such speculations in the media to undermine the relationship of two countries.

“We do not have Blackwaters in Pakistan and all information in this regard in foreign and local media was nonsense,” she said
