No go areas - Islamabad

If Karachi was not enough the same no go areas are fast springing up in the posh and elite sectors of Islamabad. Why don't all the insecure people build a great wall and live there (for ever).

All the law enforcement agencies just first establish your writ on the country's capital before trying to do the same in the far flung areas.

No go areas - Karachi

The government these days seems keen to establish it's writ on the troubled areas of WANA and Swat, but the same government has totally failed to even impose it into one of the biggest cosmopolitan of Pakistan-Karachi.


We used to hear and see the road blocks, gates and barriers in the strong holds of ethnic influential in the government organized and run localities of Gulshan, PECHS and other areas.

My recent trip trip Karachi enlightened me that even the ever power full military run area The DHA is not even out of reach of these power full hooligans. There are many streets which have restricted entry, and few no entry.

Well if the military can bend its rule to accommodate these above the law people to do what ever they feel like.

If these is the state of affairs i guess we must seriously think on the lines of changing the business wing of the military into private limited so that they stop drawing the cash from the cash stripped national exchequer and will then work double hard to earn their bread and butter form the high and mighty they are already surviving with just a meager pay and resources.

Double Game

The news of the Pakistani bast from where the killer drones flow to kill our brothers is another example to why hypocrisy is not liked in Islam.

I think that telling the truth, abiding by law and choosing the right path must be made a crime and all such "criminals" must be put behind bars for good.

At least we will be able to say we have all the desirable components of a true man but we are not hypocrites.

Increase of US presence in Afghanistan and Shirya in Swat

With the news of a sharp increase in the ground troops coming "shortly" from the oval office, a long awaited news for the war mongers in the previous and present regime. Mr Obama who is the elected president on a slogan of "change" has really brought change to the white house policy towards Muslims, Mr Bush was killing the Iraqis and Mr Obama will kill the Afghans.

This is called a real change, it is a pity that now Pakistan will have to respond in a more positive way by putting its military might on double the scale it is at the moment into the "troubled region". I guess in case of any misadventure from the Indian side "boys" from cricket and hockey team will defend the vast frontiers.

Now with the Pakistani government acceptance of demands to enforce "Sharia-Islamic law" in troubled area of Swat the problems seems to be evaporating for the military and the law enforcement agencies. It is so far unclear what the ever power full CIA of the US of A will do to unsettle the formula for peace.

There is a remote hope that if the so called "Sharia" lovers are fake then implementation of this agreement will bring out the truth and it may pave the way for a long lasting peace on the heaven on earth Swat

Australian Bushfires

Australia must be ware that the US has offered them the assistance, they must consult history before accepting any such aid. Remember they assisted, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and many other countries now they all are repaying many folds to what the US actually gave them.

I hope it does not end with drone attacks by the US on Sydney and Melbourne.

Think!




Flight 3407

Crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark that killed all the 49 people on board and one on ground came as a shock for the nation that has just survived from the near fatal crash of US Airways Flight 1549 on Jan 15th, which crashed landed in Hudson River and fortunately all 155 on board survived.


The doomed plane, a Bombraider Dash 8 Q400 having a capacity of 74 with two twin turboprop engines is perfectly capable to flying in cold and icy conditions and as the news goes that there was a sudden accumulation of ice on the wings is also not a big phenomenon that can bring the plane down.

What ever happened on board must be thoroughly investigated and this time the media must not pose the ice and the chilling conditions as the weapons of mass destruction used by the Muslims terrorists.
