Press Release (May 31, 2010) – Delaware USA : The Chairman of The Global Peace Institute Masood Zakria Choudhary in a press statement strongly condemned the Israeli army attack on a refugee cargo ship proceeding to Ghaza, Palestine in which twenty innocent persons are killed and fifty wounded. Masood Zakria Choudhary regarded it an open aggression of the Israeli government mirroring its’ aggressive and hegemonic designs. By performing such a hideous bloody act Israel has tarnished its’ image in the world community. Israel has breached international law and trampled human rights. The constant Israeli aggression is pushing the peaceful world to war. It is the democratic, moral and human duty of America to harness and bridle the steed and direct it to the right path of peace. Masood Zakria Choudhary said that the secretary general of the UNO Mr. Ban Ki Moon, the U.S.A State Department, the government of France and other countries have condemned the aggression of Israel that shows the sanity still prevails in the world and no nation has supported the inhuman act of Israel. The detainees in Israel must be safely returned to their countries and International Court of Justice should take suo moto action and ask Israel to apologize and pay the ransom to the affected families. The middle east crisis can only be resolved under Oslo Pact agreed by both the nations. Masood Zakria Choudhary appealed to the world powers to intervene for world peace and resolve the middle east issue amicably. He also appreciated the courage of the journalists who put their lives at stake and proceeded on the mission of human rights. He expressed deep grief of the killing of the human rights’ activists. At the same time he paid homage to three Pakistani journalists and human rights activists Talat Hussain, Raza Agha and Nadeem Khan or their courage and conviction.

I am writing this article from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where the news of the tragic attack in Lahore has just reached me via CNN. Although I had plans for another topic for this week’s article, the tragedy compels me to tackle the subject head-on. Such intolerance has existed in other faiths as well but they have gotten over it. Christians have learned from their indiscretions during the inquisition and Hindus have also learned from their theological fractures after the assassination of Gandhi. Yet Muslims remain unable to deal with pluralism.

Once again 93 innocent have fallen victims in the name of religion in Pakistan. The attack against two Ahmadiya prayer centers in Lahore shows that extremists have no hesitation in killing their own country men and women just because they practice different religion. I join rest of the Sindhi community in condemning this barbaric act. I also join in demanding that the Pakistani constitution be amended to create a separation between state and religion.

A man arrives at the gates of Heaven.
He was asked, “Religion?”
“Hindu” the man says.
He was told, “Go to Room 3, but be very quiet as you pass Room 5.”
Another man arrives at the gates of Heaven.
“Go to Room 4, but be very quiet as you pass Room 5.”
A third man arrives at the gates.
“Go to Room 9, but be very quiet as you pass Room 5.”
A fourth man arrives at the gates.
“Go to Room 7, but be very quiet as you pass Room 5.”
The Jew asked, “I can understand there being different rooms for different religions, but why must we all be quiet when we pass Room 5?”
“Well, the Muslims are in Room 5 and they think they’re the only ones here!”

Sovereignty Belongs to God – By: Hakim Hazik
God does not normally communicate with politicians these days. There are people who claim to be directly in communication with God. They are more likely to be found in long stay psychiatry facilities. If they are unlucky, and happen to be in Pakistan, they will be charged with blasphemy and dragged through courts. Not infrequently, they will be lynched by religious fanatics.

Published by Karachi’s Sindhica Academy, the book is just a reminder that Sufi poetry is a voice against extremism
What makes the book more adorable for the readers of Urdu is the Urdu translation of Shah’s selected poetry along with the original Sindhi verses.
Though much has been written on Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai and his Sufi poetry, there are some misconceptions about him and his poetry. One of the reasons for this misunderstanding is that due to a dearth of good books on him in Urdu and English those who do not know Shah’s native Sindhi cannot reach the heart and soul of his poetic works.
His poetry, truly a great piece of literary heritage,

If you are successful, You may win some enemies
The good that you do today, Will be forgotten tomorrow
Do good, anyway
Honesty and frankness, Makes you vulnerable

People really need help, But may attack you,
Help them, anyway
You may get kicked, For giving the best you have

Sindh Medical College Alumni Association of North America (SMCAANA) strongly condemns this barbaric act of hatred and mass murder at mosques in Lahore.
Problem is that, in Pakistan, every target is a soft target except few. This has to be taken care of by better intelligence otherwise these will continue.
We do not preach tolerance and respect of each other in Pakistan. This tolerance and respect for each other and the rule of law has to come from within and from the Government.
Every segment of society needs to not only condemn this but also stand for each other irrespective of their beliefs and ethnic origin.

Avoid speaking about what you have no knowledge of, and talking about what is not your business. -Hazrat Ali (A.S)
– In the center of our own body, there is a small shrine in the form of a lotus flower. And within it can be found a small space. The heavens and the earth are there; the sun, the moon, and the stars, fire and lightning and winds the whole universe dwells within our hearts – adapted from the Upanishads.

FIA report – Dawn Editorial
At the very least, the country deserves to know who ordered her killing. And yet with her own party in power, little has been done to find her killers.
So it seems that it was Baitullah Mehsud who ordered the killing of Benazir Bhutto after all, at least if an interim report submitted by the FIA in the Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court is to be believed. Two and a half years since the tragic assassination of Ms Bhutto, the state seems to be arguing what was argued within days of the assassination by the Musharraf government: that the TTP was responsible for Ms Bhutto’s death. That is certainly possible. After all, Ms Bhutto was returning to Pakistan with the support of the American and British administrations because they hoped the PPP leader would shore up the fight against militants here. Mehsud had every reason to fear her return.

Islamabad diary : All those years ago
– Ayaz Amir
I resigned from the Foreign Service — for which I had little aptitude to begin with — on April 15, 1977, when the rightwing movement against Mr Bhutto was at its height. In my two-para letter to my ambassador I said Bhutto’s policies were leading to the imposition of martial law.
