Zia gave Pakistan brutal gifts of Taliban and Muslim League. Renowned writer and columnist Ms Ayesha Siddiqa has written a very informative article titled ‘Zia’s children’ in The News (April 5, 2009).
According to her, “the application of Sharia is extremely complex as it entails a stringent mechanism for evidence. For instance, a witness has to meet certain conditions.

Sindhis are ONE and only ONE.  Our religion is Peace and Love ” Sindhiyat“. Media is powerful source to preserve and propagate language and culture.
We have seven Sindhi TV channels now, in India viewer ship of Sindhi channels is increasing. Young generation of Indian Sindhis now seeing Sindhi dramas, songs, movies and other magazine programs of Sindhi TVs. Indian Sindhis are very ahead in education/business/TV dramas, movies & songs. Sindhi TV has need to get Sindhi programs from India. (original Sindhi drama & Sindhi movies) Sindhi intelegensia gave many Sindhi programs/ songs to Sindhi media. We should persuade Sindhi TV channel to get more & more Sindhi programs from Indian Sindhis in original Sindhi language not translated or dubbed.

Jamat-e-Islami & General Zia

by Mansoor Hallaj
“The leader of Pakistan’s main Islamist party, the Jamaat-e-Islami, played down the incident [of the Taliban in Swat flogging a young girl].
‘It’s a small thing. We should talk about drone attacks, not minor things,’ said Munawar Hassan, referring to attacks on suspected militants by pilotless US aircraft that have angered many Pakistanis.”

Where was Jamat-e-Islami, Munawar Hasan, Professor Ghafoor, Mian Tufail and Qazi Hussain Ahmed when under their very nose this ‘SAD INCIDENT’ took place during the so-called Islamic General Ziaul Haq??? When Naked Procession of Women was forcibly taken out just for the sake of revenge.

I was mortified reading a report in a local news paper that an action forum of junior teachers has been compelled to establish a begging camp at Fakir ka Pir, a very busy market place of Hyderabad city as they have not been disbursed salaries for the last seven month.

Weird 9/11 Facts

The end with the font is real, you have to try it!!!!!
1) New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.
4) George W Bush has 11 letters.
5) The two twin towers make an “11
This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 = 11
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.
Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254.  2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.
Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
Now this is where things get totally eerie:
The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Holy Quran.
For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace.”
That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.
Still unconvinced about all of this..?! Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following(TRY THIS FOR REAL)
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Highlight the Q33 N
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS try it, it’s not a joke you will really see something that will shock you
Scary Huh??

President Zardari refused to sign Swat deal with Taliban

Asif Zardari

by Gul Agha, USA, gul.agha@gmail.com
President Zardari has refused to sign the Swat deal with the Taliban. However, for some reason, he is delaying sending the .. Army to Swat to Swat the Taliban and liberate its people ;-).  I think he is waiting for the Americans to help...

Already, President Zardari declared peace in Balochistan and apologized. Condemned terrorism in Kashmir. Ordered his ISI chief to go to India and answer all questions about the Mumbai attack. Declared Pakistan will not be the first to use nukes. And put Pakistan in support of peace and an economic union with India. What else do you want him to do? It is hard for him to do anything else. His agenda is in full swing (well, in some Dreamland). After all, he won the election

Islamic or un-Islamic? You decide.

Shameful.. shocking. .horrifying… Un-Islamic of course.

I saw the video on Geo TV… have been under shock the whole day… like so many others. I feel her as a member of our family… the man who went with her probably was not punished. I saw another cultural stigma…. She was shouting… Leave me.. Meree tauba meree maan ki tauba….. Since FATHERS in that culture do not apologies.

I received an unofficial information (though this was off the record, but the person reporting was reliable)… Some Talib has proposed her and the girl had refused.. and she was pinned down as soon as they got some opportunity.
