Smuggling of Foreign Exchange Legalized by Nawaz Sharif in 1992

The bread crumbs of flight of money from Pakistan – aka Tax evasion starts from 1992 – during the 1st premiership of Nawaz Sharif. The act passed on 28th July 1992 – stipulates

4. FREEDOM TO BRING, HOLD, SELL AND TAKE OUT FOREIGN CURRENCY:-- All citizens of Pakistan resident in Pakistan or outside Pakistan and all other persons shall be entitled and free to bring, hold, sell, transfer and take out foreign exchange within or out of Pakistan in any form and shall not be required to make a foreign currency declaration at any stage nor shall any one be questioned in regard to the same. (ref link)

No wonder Ayan Ali was mistakenly caught red handed (or not) walking away with $500,000, and is pleading innocent and shall walk away free as a bird

How perfectly scripted – merely by adding only two words — “take out” — in this law it legitmizes the flight of capital from Pakistan to many offshore locations without paying a dime of tax. All scripted / camouflaged under the garb of “for the economic benefit of Pakistan” – confidence building measures to encourage free trade around the world — yeah right

There is NO DOUBT that all mentioned in the Panama Papers in Pakistan need to come clean on if these offshore accounts are legit or ill legal – it starts from them showing the source of the wealth and if the taxes have been paid for the specified income, as the PML media is trying to portray other individuals also being in the list – that does not in anyway absolve the responsibility of the Head of State to come clean on this and show his innocence as and where possible.

Cricket Pitch Curation at Kolkata in Pakistan vs India T20 Match

Shoaib Malik almost says what he wanted to say “it’s not the curators fault — he can’t control the weather ”

But last two matches the ball was coming up and good, for seam, At the toss pundits were saying win the toss and bat first – but dhoni to the surprise of many opts to bowl first

While India plays spinners

It’s a match let’s play it, but historically ground curators have tweaked their pitches ever so gently to favor their own team ;) #PAKvsIND – shared by Awab Alvi on Facebook

Risky Business – Usman Ahmed of Nizam Energy

Though I must admit I was critical of Nizam Energy, a few months back on the solar energy plant to be installed in Sindh.  My argument then, was on PML and the tenured 25 year guaranteed tariff for this solar plant which was exceptionally too high, far beyond other energy resources – at the singing of the contract NEPRA’s published 25 year tenured rate for solar was Rs. 14.8 KwH, while wind was at Rs. 12.1 KwH & furnace oil around Rs 11.2 KwH – this is assured income for a renewable source of energy that the people of Pakistan will pay for the next 25 years

That said, there is nothing to take away from the energy and passion of Usman to do more for the country and I respect that, for his own he pulled out a brilliant deal, but it is probably me to criticise PML which needs to think long term for the people of Pakistan

It was a delight reading his story on the Acumen blog – I wish him all the best – a true Made in Pakistan story to be proud off – I look forward to seeing more of him and his efforts to conquer more insurmountable tasks for the sake of Pakistan



Details of Assistance being provided by KPK Govt to APS Victims

Efforts of the PTI Govt in KPK after APS School AttackThe tragedy of APS Peshawar on 16th December 2014 shocked the entire nation, how could a heartless group of individuals target a school filled with children – the tragedy impacted the lives of 144 innocent people who were killed in the attack with over 124 additional people injured during the carnage.

Since then, the KPK Govt has been doing a lot for the victims and their loved ones, there is no way that the parents can ever be fully compensated for their loss, but some effort has been done to support them, there were still reports of some disgruntled parents who were stil unhappy about their cases, but looking at their genuine pleas it seems they were angry as the perpetrators who had masterminded this carnage have not been caught, during the session even Imran Khan allowed them to voice their concerns and reassured them that all grievances shall be handled immediately

KPK Govt on the 16th Dec 2015 sent out a press statement listing out the assistance given to the victims and their family members – sent to all media outlets but it seems no one cared to report on the facts, I think instead of waiting for a media house to publish these facts even 15 days after the anniversary, I’m reproducing the update from the KPK govt. This is also just a humble reminder that PTI Govt in KPK has taken the full burden of the compensation while the Federal Govt is garlanding the public & media with mere statements of support



Details of Rehabilitation &/or Assistance support given by KPK Govt to the victims & survivors of the APS Carnage on 16th Dec 2014

  • Shuhada Students: 122
  • Shuhada Teaching / Non-teaching staff: 22
    Total Shuhada: 144
  • Seriously Injured: 73
  • Minor Injured: 48
  • Police Personnel Injured: 3
    Total Injured: 124

Depression

DEPRESSION ! it is a disease often undiagnosed or hidden away, specially in Pakistan, as it is considered as taboo to seek help from a Psychiatrist and in the fear of being stigmatize people do not seek counselling.

What is Depression?A must-watch for anyone who has ever suffered from depression, or known someone who has: http://ow.ly/VUyyb

Posted by TED-Ed on Tuesday, December 15, 2015

If I recall the TEDxKarachi 2014 talk by Ahsan Jamil last year – who highlighted the importance of this disease said that over 30 to 40 per cent of the adult population in Karachi may be suffering from common mental disorders. Many people are suffering from common mental disorders, such as anxiety and mild to moderate depression, if solutions, were available and if accessed, would allow the patients to live perfectly functional lives.

“There are only 27 consultant psychiatrists for a population of almost 20 million. This works out to one psychiatrist for every 750,000 individuals,”

Ahsan Jamil predicted that in the next 4-5 years depression would be the most prevalent (yet unrecognised) disease for Pakistanis and there is no consolidated effort to address the concerns of people suffering from depression.
