Osama Bin Laden is in Kunar, Afghanistan – Rehman Malik, Interior Minister


Rehman Malik, Interior Minister of Pakistan said Osama Bin Laden and other top Al Qaeda leaders are currently hiding in Afghanistan most probably in the Kunar area. He further said that the Pakistan military must have found him and his colleagues during its military operations if he was there in Pakistan. This news is released by Press Trust of India.

Great! Clinton to Bush to Mushraff to Obama all said the same thing with a little variation of the words. So what is new he is telling us. If he knows with that much confidence that Bin Laden is in Kunar why don’t he tell his US friends and collect the bounty.

Another question to Rehman Malik is why you could not find Baitullah Mehsood and Sufi Mohammad during your operation If you think your military operations were that effective.

Do you have any intention to find and catch Baitullah Mehsood and Sufi Mohammad? Apparently not.

Terrorists Attacks in Mumbai


You have been listening, watching and reading for the last three days all about the horrendous attacks on four of the Mumbai locations. The effect is devastating. It is definitely some thing to condemn. You are getting all the latest news with pictures and videos from your TV channels so there is no need to go through that.

It is Friday morning in Mumbai. Indian TV channels and news websites are competing with each other to be the ‘first‘ to tell its viewers and readers something ‘new‘ irrespective of whether it is true or not. They have any evidence for that or not. All the Indian media is propagating that these terrorists came from Pakistan through two Pakistani merchant ships. Nobody gave the ship’s names so that it could be verified. Their primary aim is to create some sort of suspense and drama to keep the viewers glued to their TVs. Good for them.I think the most important thing is to find out who is behind these terrorists attacks. Who funded their operations. Unless and until we find that we can not successfully deal or eliminate with these terrorists whether they are Pakistanis or British as the Indian media is claiming. Whether they have came from Pakistan or where ever. It does not make any difference.

One of the techniques to deal with a situation when the truth is not known or there are too many variables then you use scenario planning technique.

You create possible scenarios of the situation. In this case, let us try to list some scenarios of possible supporters, origin of these attacks or simply who is behind these attacks.

1.   Pakistan’s President Zardari in an interview to Wall Street Journal of October 4, 2008 (for easy reference tenth paragraph from the top) made the following comments about Kashmiris.

He (Zardari) speaks of the militant Islamic groups operating in Kashmir as
“terrorists” — former President Musharraf would more likely have
called them “freedom fighters”.

This Mumbai attack may be sponsored by Kashmiri outfit(s) to teach a lesson to Mr. Zardari.

2.    This whole thing may have been planned by Pakistan to divert the attention of Pakistani people from domestic problems of rising food prices, energy crisis, law and order situation (terrorists in Pakistan can attack where ever they chose), economic problems, failing government with no writ in the NWFP etc.

3.    Pakistani Islamic extremists may have sponsored these attacks to show they have the power and resources to attack out side the boundaries of Pakistan and create problems for Pakistan.

4.    These attacks may have been supported by some Indian political or other entities who are fighting with the Indian government for different reasons.

5.    These attacks may have been supported by any rival political party in India to create problems for ruling Congress Party.

These are just few ideas. This is not to blame or accuse anyone. You can add your ideas to it.

The most important thing is to locate, identify and provide necessary evidence about the “sponsors”. Who provided the logistics and money. The terrorists, their nationality is not important here. It is important to the extent if they have used the territory of Pakistan then Pakistan is part of the problem and not the solution.

Indian Prime Minister is under immense pressure to explain how this attack happened. Why intelligence agencies failed. He has blamed Pakistan with out naming it. However, Indian Foreign Minister has categorically named Pakistan.

Pakistan is in the defensive position and very weak. President Zardari has nothing to show for he has done anything to curb extreme in his own country. So far government of Pakistan could not find and arrests the perpetrators of Marriott Hotel attackers in Islamabad. That is their total ability.

What you expect anything more from Pakistan?

America or Any Other Country Should Not Interfer in Pakistan’s Affairs – Nawaz Sharif


Democracy Don’t Take Instructions From Anybody It Tells Them What To Do Asif Ali Zardari, Co-Chairman of PPP.

This is what Nawaz Sharif (PML-N) and Asif Ali Zardari (PPP) said.

Well, I have a couple of questions for both of them.

When Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif were lobbying in the US and the UK to get back into Pakistani politics what you call that activity. That was not inviting foreign countries to interfere in Pakistan’s affairs.

When America was involved in drafting NRO (National Reconciliation Ordinance) that was not interference in Pakistani matters.

When Nawaz Sharif approached Saudi King Shaikh Abdullah to get out of the jail that was not interference in Pakistani legal system.

We did not know earlier but now we learned that Britain was also involved in NRO activities. Was this not the result of success of lobbying done by Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif in the UK.

When Zardari and Nawaz Sharif made trips to Saudi Arabia to seek their help to displace Pervez Musharraf. What you would call this?

When you approached US administration through Saudi Arabia to seek the trust of US government. What you would call this?

Did money change hands in all these lobbying activities. Or the lobbyist in the US and UK were doing all this work just for God sake (fe sabililah).

Recently, Mr. Muqran, Chief of Saudi Intelligence Agency visited Pakistan and met with you, did he come to make a program with you to pray together in Mecca?

Don’t tell us you have not been inviting and involving foreign governments and persons for your malicious motives and personal benefits.

What a joke. Anything said and done by Zardari and Sharif is according to democracy everything else is dictatorship.

Pakistan – A Nation Divided


This is the first time in the history of Pakistan that the Army, the President and the Prime Minister had their three separate functions to celebrate the Independence Day.

That tells you all and everything.

I am not a seer. I cannot predict the future but this day August 14, 2008 may be the beginning of the end of democracy in this country.

The politicians are telling us their personal revenge agenda as the problem of democracy.  This is not going to bring stability and prosperity to the people.

If these politicians did not pay attention to the real problems of the country very soon the people will continue to suffer and this country will continue to plunge in misery and anarchy. Political and financial stability will become only a dream.

This time Army will not come to rescue the people.  They had enough share.

But since that is the only entity which is functional in this country so they do feel their responsibility when the people are helpless in the hands of politicians.

But this time when they will come they will not come to leave.
