Audio Conversation Leaked – a Privacy Issue Discussion

As many may have heard about the conversation between Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi, truly in my opinion there is nothing incriminating in the conversation so the contents are in the political discussion domain which I do not want to open up on Linkedin – the political discourse can be continued on my blog here on Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi’s “doctored” conversation leaked

What I think needs to be discussed is more along the lines of discussing it Privacy Issue, with the hope that this case can be made as a deterrent for future leakages of private conversations maybe involving of honest Pakistani nationals – The questions I pose to everyone to answer Continue Reading


Imran Khan & Arif Alvi’s “doctored” cell phone conversation leaked

The recent “breaking news” is about a leaked converstation between Imran Khan & Dr. Arif Alvi – which is undoubtedly multiple phone calls stitched together to portray a narrative / propaganda

What is more important is to publicly identify the propagandists involved in recording a private call — espionage by whom? is it even legal? is it invasion of privacy? but then going on to stitch / splice together multiple calls to suit a propaganda / narrative is that even conceivably ligit?

The more interesting aspect of this leak is that there is nothing damaging / incriminating about this conversation that deserves attention but for the sake of mudslinging on PTI, everyone is making this a big issue

Lets decipher the audio clip.

Mubashir Lucman shows MQM 90 Raid footage

Mubashir Lucman shows the CCTV footage from 90 (MQM Headquarters) of the raid on the offices where many terrorists were captured and abundant ammunition was confiscated.

Thanks to Mubashir Lucman the MQM’s nightmare simply does not end …. for the sake of cleaning up Karachi – this city needs to be cleaned up from these goons and many others whom MQM has inspired into this business of urban terrorism to have totally destroyed the fabric of our city


WordPress Blocked in Pakistan

The popular blogging site WordPress.com is being blocked in Pakistan courtesy of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority flexing their muscles. This is not new, in 2006 Blogspot was blocked because one blog hosted on the Blogspot domain posted the controversial cartoons mocking our prophet Muhammed (PBUH) the blockage lasted for over two years and was silently removed but the website still lingers on.

Today the site which might have been responsible (as per my info) for the cause of the WordPress censorship is undoubtedly Anti-Pakistan propaganda and has been engaged in this Anti-Pakistan propaganda for quite sometime, even to the extent of supporting TTP terrorists against Pakistan etc, but by blocking it, does not serve Pakistan well, as inadvertently the Govt of Pakistan attracts more undue attention towards the site, a site which I too would not have bothered to look up – had if Govt of Pakistan not decided to block it, inquisitively I looked around to search the cause of the block to actually see why had it irked PTA enough to block it.

Now hats off to PTA as the traffic / attention to the site increases … censorship is hence a double edge sword, but propaganda wins, if it reaches the tipping point of curiosity, catapulting the issue to mainstream news, as compared to an unknown blog post being uploaded on some random blog site pushing filth

Aamir Attaa at ProPakistani upates that this might only be a two day block

“A source at Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has confirmed ProPakistani that WordPress.com is temporarily blocked in Pakistan due to severe issues related to national security. It appears now that blocking decision is somewhat related to Pakistan day. Source, who wanted to remain unnamed, said that exact content that caused the blockade can’t be revealed due to seriousness of the matter. Source further confirmed that WordPress.com will be unblocked in two days from now”

Post Edit: One does go through a flux of thoughts at times like these, sure on 23rd March with patriotism in full swing, Anti-state propaganda is to be shunned / ignored, and in their self acclaimed defenders of the ideology of Pakistan – PTA decides to possibly take a moratorium on wordpress for 2 days (?) to silence this idiotic blog but does blocking one blog warrant the blatant censorship of millions of other blogs

Many may argue, its not the end of the world, sure… but why should millions of blog access suffer for one idiotic lunatic hosting something against Pakistan. Havent they inturn given legitimacy to the blog, that they have successfully irked the Pakistani nation and in some way catapulted the blogger to international fame. Ignoring such lunatics possibly requires prudence in thought, it could compel PTA to ask Channels/PEMRA to ignore such Anti-Pakistan stories, but attracting attention to the site is a damning shot in their own foot


Confessional Video of Saulat Mirza – exposing MQM

Only a few hours before his hanging (MQM leader / Activist) Saulat Mirza, a confessional video is aired which exposes the MQM fully as a Terrorist party that has besieged Karachi – he confesses to having killed KESC MD on the direct instructions from Senator Babar Ghauri and Altaf Hussain – amongst other many confessions.

This is a damming peace of evidence fully exposing the MQM and Altaf Hussain to having assassinated many of its workers and opponent


British Army lays claim to the Afghanistan Cricket Team in World Cup

So it seems that the British Army lays claim to the Afghanistan Cricket Team appearance in the World Cup?
Ironic that they bomb a country to hell under the garb of “War on Terror” only to rebuild a cricket team?
How thoughtful !!! is this English notion of Charity? Or laying the breadcrumbs towards a British Dynasty

PTI wins Senate seats by a Whisker, but will the Senate Elections Change in the future – NO

Im happy, that PTI has successfully defeated the horse trading attempts in the KPK assembly (literally by our whiskers) – but what worries me more is that the status quo leash on Pakistan has  yet to be challenged and chopped to bits.

We cannot & should not let them continue this mess on Pakistan – PPP JUI-F and ANP all need a strict shut up call – without which Pakistan shall never have any semblece of genuine democracy as there shall never exist the foundation of a free and fair elections

Horse trading and floor crossing has always been patronized by all the status quo parties to their own advantage as and when needed – It is usually only when the ruling govt suffers, that they join hands subsequently to pass a resolution to put a permanent end to the horse trading fiasco which may have hurt them, examples being

  • MP’s have been strictly prohibited for voting against the finance budgets, as it has previously resulted in the collapse of a sitting Govt
  • MP’s have been prohibited from floor crossing – powers have given to the party leaders to ensure discipline
  • Voting for Prime Minister and Chief Ministers are open counting
  • No confidence motion is not by a secret ballot

Senate elections have always been controversial with abundant report of heavy buying and selling, but it has never face any significant resistance until PTI faced the threat of PPP, JUI-F and ANP attempting to buy out PTI MP’s almost reportedly reaching as a price tag of Rs 35 crore for each senate seat

It is my opinion that these senate elections have not shaken the PML-N hard enough (except for a mini-hiccup in Baluchistan where disgrunteled PML MP’s voted to elect a PPP MP – quite definitely on a price tag) the loss of this senator, I don’t think is significant enough that the Sharif’s will loose any sleep over to be even compelled to pass any constitutional amendment to ensure that no horse trading happens in the next senate elections

Hence PTI may have escaped a crisis – but Pakistan has not learned as yet, 2-1/2 years down the road – we shall be at the same juncture and the price tag of 35 crore would probably dwarf against the inflation of 2018 for each senate seat.

Another PLUS ONE for status quo – ZERO for Pakistan


Help us rebuild the Railway School at Kalapul – an NA250 & ICWS Project


Insaf Community Welfare Society partners with The Citizens Foundation to adopt this Railway school near Kalapul – work is fully underway for the initial handover to TCF in some respectable state in the coming month, but we need generous support to rebuild and rehabilitate this school to its old glory – taking it from the ~200 students enrolled to the potential of 2000 children being educated in both shifts

A detailed report of the project can be read on the NA250.com website Railway School Kalapul Project

During the fundraiser this Sunday we raised pledges of 5 million to bring the total up to 9.5 million already pledged by the NA250 team and supporters – our aim is to achieve 25 million to revamp the school

Ironically if you watch in between the video the assembly of children when asked “Kaisa School Chahiyae” they respond “Foundation jaisa school” – right across the playground a lavish Foundation Public School stands with a manicured structure teaching “the affording elite” … while these 200 or so kids live in pre-historic times.

PML transfers Senate Candidates to Punjab for Election

PML-N candidates Salim Zia, Nehal Hashmi, Rahila Magsi and Iqbal Zafar Jhagra get their votes transferred to Punjab overnight and the very next day all their names appear on PML’s list of candidates for senate

How amazingly brilliant of Election Commission of Pakistan to oblige the PML 20 days after the announcement of the election schedule – bypassing all rules under the garb approval obtained from “competent authority”

“On February 10, almost 20 days after the election schedule was announced, got issued letter No F 3(2)/2014-Cord with a title “Immediate By UMS/Fax”, conveying to the ROs and CECs of all the four provinces that the approval had been obtained from the “competent authority” under which the “provisions of Section 20 of the Electoral Rolls Act, 1974 are not applicable to election programme issued by ECP”. The letter also directed the authorities to “proceed in the matter (registration/transfer of votes) under intimation to the commission”. – shared by Awab Alvi on Facebook


Najam Sethi Forgets his Criticism on Imran Khan’s ’92 WC Team

Najam Sethi says on Geo TV that “If you criticize the cricket team they may lose motivation” and blamed the media and public for launching a demoralizing assault on the players

But quite interestingly his column in 1992 against Imran Khan voices the exact same knee-jerk reaction – and accused Imran Khan of having floundered

Get Going, Imran


Forgotten Tragedies – The Nation

The Nation Editorial >

One would think that terrorism and militancy is our biggest concern, but political espionage and plotting has been our curse since the very beginning.

So many lives have been lost over the years, from the infamous bori-band corpses of Sindh to the massacre of Pakistan Awami Tehreek workers in Punjab, we have villains and jesters running the show. Forget Mullah Fazlullah, people in Karachi hesitate to even say MQM out loud in Karachi for fear of ending missing, people in Lahore know full well that CM Sharif can fire them at will and cannot be reasoned with, Zardari was a convict and the rest are no better.

Corruption is rampant and people die like flies under their watch. 40 dead here from a bomb blast, 20 dead there from a fire, 10 few killed from police brutality, 25 murdered because of blaspheming, 15 deemed wajib-ul-qatl anyway, and the rest die of starvation and misery. The Baldia factory fire is a harrowing and solvable case which needs to be back in the spotlight. 259 men were burnt alive in a bolted factory and the horror by which they perished must be investigated with results.


Update on the APS Injured Student Ahmed Nawaz

For quite a few days Social Media was abuzz with concerns about the medical treatment of one of the school children injured in the APS attack in Peshawar named Ahmed Nawaz – ever-so Vigilant Media carried reports of an enraged father pleading to the govt of medical assistance (or lack of).

I personally had been tagged on a number of posts on this issue, and have tried my best to investigate the concerns with the hope of ensuring that the child gets the necessary attention, the more I delved, the more it seemed to be a mixture of genuine concerns but at the same time the issue was interspersed with political point scoring on behalf of Anti PTI proponents, either way my focus had to be on the safe recovery of Ahmed Nawaz, regardless of who paid the bill

The KPK govt from the get-go had promised compensation to all victims (Rs 20 Lacs each) and full medical coverage of the injured, the media attention raised by his father succeeded in grabbing more extended coverage by the KPK Govt, which additionally also pledged Rs. 3.5 Million to him if he needed international treatment, if such treatment options were not available in Pakistan. The Prime Minister of Pakistan in lieu of PML-N point scoring also pledged coverage to the child at PIMS Islamabad, but despite these promises it seemed the father was still discontent and was pushing to take Ahmed Nawaz abroad for further treatment as the medical attention was not up to par in Pakistan, I personally do not blame him, as a father, whose son may have suffered the most traumatic incident of his life – he has the right to get the best for his son.

The PTI Social Media team raised these concerns to PTI Chairman Imran Khan to investigate this matter personally, the Chief Minister of KPK Pervaiz Khattak and also the Health Minister Shahram Tarkai. All were forthcoming and assured the best possible treatment is being offered at all level, still there seemed to be some social media naysayers (maybe rightly so) who were in direct contact with the father and he expressed his utter dissatisfaction at any/all cooperation. And it was then pushing the citizen activists groups to lobby for support and in generosity pledge financial assistance for further treatment of Ahmed Nawaz abroad – viz-a-viz the KPK Govt had pledged full support in Pakistan (and now also abroad) if good/decent treatment is not available in Pakistan, but if its the fathers personal desire to take Ahmed Nawaz abroad then the funds can be raised from public donations but the focus to defame PTI govt in KPK on this issue is unwarranted.

PML-N’s Weak and Frivolous Economic Managers = Pakistan’s Economic Woes

An article by Dr Ashfqaue Khan (Principal and Dean NUST School of Social Sciences and Humanities) published in Business Recorder – “Pakistan is currently facing one of the worst economic challenges of its history. Almost eight years of continued economic misgovernance have severely damaged the economy beyond recognition. Weak and frivolous economic managers, ministers and Apna Admi culture (cronyism)” have not only damaged the economy but also destroyed key economic institutions/ministries” – LINK
