International Rivers: Bhasha Dam Project

Since Kalabagh Dam issue have been put to sleep [not to rest], here is a new crisis for Sindh, now you have to take on our “friends” in NWFP, besides Punjab.

///-///-

Diamer-Bhasha Dam

The new government of Pakistan is considering another big dam project. The Diamer-Bhasha Dam on the Indus River in northern Pakistan comes with an astounding price tag of over US$8.5 billion. The 200-square-kilomete r reservoir would flood 100 kilometers of the Karakoram highway, and the villages and farms of over 35,000 people would disappear. Tens of thousands of thousand-year old rock carvings would vanish. The project, after an eight-year construction period, would provide 4500 MW of electricity for the national grid, but it would not address the far more pressing issue that half of Pakistan’s population (around 80 million people) have no electricity access whatsoever. Diamer-Bhasha is a costly project that would only benefit industries and wealthy Pakistanis.

Pakistan : Punjab can no longer live in a state of denial

by Ayaz Amir

Courtesy: The News

If FATA represents the cutting edge of terrorism in the name of Islam, Punjab, unfortunately, is the hinterland of this phenomenon. Or, to borrow a phrase from the repertoire of military folly, Punjab is the strategic depth of bigotry and extremism masquerading in the colours of Islam.

Religious extremism took root in the soil of Pakistan thanks to the so-called Islamisation policies of Gen Ziaul Haq and his role in pushing the first Afghan ‘jihad’. The dragon’s teeth of our sorrows were scattered by Zia. We are reaping the harvest.

Lahore: suicide bombers kill 39

by: Omar Ali

Very sad indeed. Unfortunately, the supply of suicide bombers exceeds the ability of our security forces to catch them and will likely do so for several years to come. The Jihadi militias are the Pak security establishment’s gift to the nation and its the gift that keeps on giving.

I know that now the security establishment itself is at the recieving end and we all need the security establishment to stop this menace, but it bring up this unpleasant business about “the gift that keeps on giving” because it is not only important that the security establishment now changes sides and eliminates these militias, it is also important that we develop better civilian institutions that can keep the security establishment in check so they don’t create new monsters in the future. Our security establishment is a professional institution, with reasonable good capabilities when it comes to actual army work like fighting conventional wars (at least by third world standards), but the average military officer (in most armies, not just in our army) has a very narrow and distorted world view. If they are allowed to decide national priorities and strategy without civilian input, they are guaranteed to make at least one big blunder every few years….I remember an exchange with an Indian historian who had spent some time with Indian

officers in Kashmir. He said the thing that struck him was that many of these officers are brave and are doing a tough job in harsh terrain and he admired them for that, but when they sat down for conversation after dinner, their naive and even silly theories about history, their total ignorance of economics and sociology, their “world view” basically knocked his socks off and he realized for the first time how lucky India was that these fine officers are NOT in charge of making public policy. Now, this historian was a fairly typical left wing product of higher education, so I am not saying everything he regarded as silly was really silly….sometimes the shoe is on the other foot, but I think he did have a point.

Anyway, coming back to the tragic bombings. We also need to improve the civilian police and dedicated anti-terrorist force. Ultimately, this is a police matter. Man for man, the Punjab police is more effective than most subcontinental police forces (that is not saying much, ALL subcontinental police units are riddled with corruption, use torture, abuse the poor and gang up with the rich to rob them and so on, but my guess is that the police in Lahore is probably more effective than the police in Delhi or Karachi) and given some time and effort, this menace will eventually be tackled mostly by the police in the settled areas while the army eliminates their bases in the tribal areas and suchlike. It will be a very unpleasant and nasty war…

People of FATA are grateful to His! Excellency Karzai

People of FATA are grateful to His! Excellency Karzai for his statement against FCR in FATA

By Zar Ali Khan Musazai

President Hamid Karzai was right to say that Frontier Crimes Regulations commonly known as FCR is a terrible legacy of the British colonial rule being applied on Pashtun People in FATA. The sooner it is taken out the better. It is also against human dignity. As for as I understand this important question was posed a Pashtun journalist no less than the incumbent President of Peshawar Press Club in Pashto language in Islamabad when his Excellency! Hamid Khan Karzai was there on his official visit to Islamabad. Some of the Pakistani- minded Journalists who were present on that occasion criticized the remarks of Pashtun President Hamid Karzai and termed his reply as an intervention in internal affairs of Pakistan. This criticism was illogical and non sense. These so called journalists should realize that FATA is a place where Pashtun live and Karzai is also a Pashtun/Afghan and he has the right to ask for his people’s right in FATA. This unfortunate part has always been used for the nefarious designs by the establishment of Pakistan. First this part was used by the British rulers to block the forward movements of the then Tzarists and latter on was used by Pakistan with support of international community and Arab world to stop socialist block of former USSR to remain in Kabul. This time this part is again being used as proxy to thwart the good intentions of international community to prevail peace and promote democracy and developmental activities in Afghanistan. People in FATA do want change and are not ready to remain in old and out dated system which has given them nothing except humiliation and destruction. FATA is an area where there are no human rights. Political parties are not allowed to do politics and political parties act has never been extended to this part. Resultantly, extremist religious forces.

Ajmal Khattak: the Revolutionary Dervish

He was a true polymath – a poet, journalist, broadcaster, linguist, scholar and a politician .However despite all his patrician qualities this Renaissance man was a plebeian at heart.

Despite his capability to – and opportunities available to him for – upward social mobility, Ajmal Khattak chose to live and die in his dignified poverty. In a polity where comprador bourgeoisie, feudals and their quislings were rising to power, Ajmal stood head and shoulders above that upstart crowd, relying solely on his intellectual and political acumen. He was a giant in a political landscape dotted with pygmies.

UNHCR Official Assassination is deplorable

By Zar Ali Khan Musazai, Peshawar

(The writer is a political and Social worker and can be reached on his email, srd.org.pk@gmail.com, musazai1975@gmail.com)

It was shocking to know that terrorists shot an official of UNHCR and his security guard at Kacha Ghari Camp in Peshawar where they had gone to see the condition of IDPs who have migrated from the restive districts of the Pashtunkhwa Province and FATA due to ongoing military operation against militants. Now a day in provincial capital Peshawar the incidents of kidnapping have risen to the extent that any one who is on road will have to feel the warmth of it and no one’s life and property are safe. Abductors can do any thing they want and any one comes under their vicious eyes will have to be taken away by them and then abductees will have to surrender to their conditions which they put before the poor soul.

What do people in Buner think about ongoing war?

By Zar Ali Khan Musazai

About 3 million people from restive Swat, Buner and Dir migrated to comparatively safer areas of Mardan, Swabi, Nowshera, Charsadda, Peshawar and some others in down Pakistan , a small number where these IDPs were restricted to settle or encamp. In other three provinces of Pakistan some political parties and individuals opposed the entry of IDPs from Pashtun areas.

ISSUE OF I.D.Ps AND THE RIGHTS OF SINDH (A nationalist point of view)

Khalique Junejo’s letter to Dawn in response to Dawn editorial “IDPs in Sindh”

This is with reference to your editorial “IDPs in Sindh” dated: May 24th, 2009 wehrein some points are not presented in proper perspective while others need some clarification.

There is a big difference between the stance and attitude of MQM and Sindhi People regarding the issue of so called IDPs. Sindhis are not opposed to their entry and settlement in Sindh because of their being ethic Pakhtoons or because they are coming from some specific places like Malakand and/or FATA as is the case with MQM. Sindhis are against the influx, into Sindh, of people belonging to any ethnicity and coming from any place, either from another province or another country as Sindh is already over-saturated and over-stretched.

You say that “if IDPs are fleeing their homes, they have no choice as their land is now a theater of war. Yes, they have no choice but to flee. But is their no choice and chance for them to settle in a place along the 2000 k.m. route they traverse to reach Karachi and Hyderabad? In between come the places of Pakhtoonkhuwa, the capital Islamabad and the big brother Punjab. If the only justification is that they have their relatives in Sindh, it proves the point of the Sindhi nationalists; those who came yesterday make ground for more to come today and the ones coming today will create reason for many more to come tomorrow.

Not hard to understand why!!

by Nadeem Jamali, Canada

Sindh’s political elites have to keep proving that they are more loyal to Islamabad than to Sindh. In comparison, Punjab is Pakistan. Punjabis have nothing to prove.

The consensus emerging on refugees internationally is that they should settle in the first / closest place where they can have refuge. In Pakistan, anyone and everyone who needs refuge, no matter where they are from, only seem to feel safe in Sindh.

Now only if Sindh could integrate refugees into Sindhi society, they could harness the wealth of traditional knowledge, expertise, and the work ethic that Pashtuns are known for, for common good. Instead, Sindhis end up having to integrate into each group of refugees coming through the borders.

Pakistan: Struggling to See a Country of Shards

By SABRINA TAVERNISE

LAHORE, Pakistan — On a spring night in Lahore, I came face to face with all that is puzzling about Pakistan.

I had just interviewed Mobarak Haidar, a Pakistani author who was confidently predicting the end of the world. Islamic extremism, he said, was a wild animal that would soon gobble up Europe and all of Western civilization. “All the world’s achievements for the past 500 years are at risk,” he said in a gloomy tone, sitting in his living room. Soon there would be no more music, dancing or fun of any kind. The power went out and candles were lit, adding to the spookiness.

And then, as I climbed into a car to go home, a wedding party came out of nowhere, enveloping us in a shower of rose petals. Men playing bagpipes marched toward us, grinning, while dancing guests wriggled and clapped, making strange-shaped silhouettes in our headlights.

So which is the real Pakistan? Collapsing state or crazy party?

The answer is both, which is why this country of 170 million people is so hard to figure out.

Pakistan has several selves. There is rural Pakistan, where two-thirds of the country lives in conditions that approximate the 13th century. There is urban Pakistan, where the British-accented, Princeton-educated elite sip cold drinks in clipped gardens.

The rugged mountains of the west are inhabited by fiercely tribal Pashtuns, many of whom live without running water or electricity; there, an open Taliban insurgency seems beyond the central government’s control. In the lush plains of Punjab in the east, the insurgency is still underground, and the major highways are as smooth as any in the American Midwest.

The place where these two areas meet is the front line of Pakistan’s war — valleys and towns less than 100 miles from the country’s capital, Islamabad. Taliban militants, whose talk is part Marx, part mullah, but whose goal is power, now occupy this area. In recent weeks they pushed into Buner, even closer to the capital, and last week the military, after weeks of inaction, began a drive against them.

The war, in a way, is a telling clash between Pakistan’s competing impulses, so different that they are hard to see together in the same frame.

“It’s like when people try to take snapshots, but the contrast is too sharp,” said Feisal Naqvi, a Lahore-based lawyer. “You only capture a little bit of the real picture.”

Islam is perhaps the only constant in this picture. Pakistan, after all, was established in 1947 so the Muslims of the subcontinent would have their own country after independence from Britain. The rest became India, a multifaith, Hindu-majority constitutional republic.

But Pakistan didn’t declare itself an Islamic republic until 1956. In its early years, Pakistan’s liberals will remind you, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the country’s founder, delivered two speeches in which he said that Pakistan would not be a theocracy and that citizens of other religions would be free to practice.

Nevertheless, Islam became a powerful glue for the new nation; subsequent leaders, civilian and military, relied on it to stick the patchwork of ethnicities and tribes together. Then, like a genie out of a bottle, it took a direction all its own. “Once you bring Islam into politics, it’s hard to handle,” Mr. Naqvi said. “You don’t have the tools to control it.”

Young countries have long memories, and Pakistanis have not forgotten (or forgiven) the actions of the United States since the 1980s, when its spy agency, together with Pakistan’s own, backed Islamists fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Soon after the Soviets left, Washington withdrew its aid to Pakistan, and the Islamists were left with their own safe haven.

“The Americans just walked out, and Pakistan became the most sanctioned state in the world,” said Najam Sethi, editor of The Daily Times, a newspaper. “That has now created a powder keg of sympathy for the Taliban.”

Like splinters in fingers, these memories continue to irritate. They came tumbling out in a candle-lit room (again, no power) full of journalists in Muzaffargarh, a town in southern Punjab where militants had recently issued threats. Instead of hearing about those threats, though, I was reminded of grievances against America.

The Roots of Extremism

by: Isa

The common belief in Pakistan is that Islamic radicalism is a problem only in FATA, and that madrassas are the only jihad factories around. This is seriously wrong. Extremism is breeding at a ferocious rate in religious schools within towns and cities. Left unchallenged, this education will produce a generation incapable of living together with any except strictly their own kind. The mindset it produces may eventually lead to Pakistan’s demise as a nation state.

Taliban arranging love marriages (Is it TRUE?!)

Taliban in Pak’s Swat arranging ‘love marriages’

Press Trust Of India – Islamabad, April 19, 2009 -Taliban militants in Pakistan’s northwestern Swat valley have set up a special bureau for arranging “love marriages” for couples barred by their families from tying the knot with partners of their choice.

The bureau named ‘Shuba-e-Aroosat´, which is headed by Taliban commander Abu Ammad, has arranged 11 “love marriages” in the past nine days, militant spokesman Muslim Khan was quoted as saying by BBC Urdu service.

Another 300 men and women are waiting for their turn to marry. “The love marriage aspirants contact the bureau on a fixed telephone number. The Taliban collect their particulars and then contact their families to arrange these marriages,” Khan said.

Islam allows every adult to marry according to his own choice, he said. “Most of the girls or their families who contacted us wished to marry militant Taliban,” Khan claimed.

Some analysts said the Taliban were paving the way for militants to marry women of their choice. Some people have also questioned how the militants could allow the flogging of men and women for being seen together in public while at the same time facilitating the youth to marry according to their own choice.

Here is a real test of everyone on the left, right, center, in the government, in opposition, in judiciary, members of civil society, men in black, human rights advocates, and Pakistani Diaspora. Either you are against this kind of madness or you are part of it. There is no high road to heaven.
Very soon all those who are undecided or they are on the periphery of this issue will be forced into retirements. When the battle between Millat and Umma heats up the lines will be drawn in the sand. We just can’t stick to our wish lists. These guys are forcing people of Pakistan to choose between Pakistan zinda abad and Islam zinda abad.

Sindhiyat is under attack

by Nazia Junejo, Salt lake city, USA
The writer can be reached at najunejo@yahoo.com
I do not think this could be regarded as a warning sign any more. It seems like the dreaded is already here. Our Sindhiyat was already under attack from MQM, feudals and the government (regardless of the rulers), now this new monster seems determined to engulf whatever pieces of culture and civilization we are left with. The rule of the world is to move forward ie time and tide wait for no one. The nations which got independence with us like China or India have been advancing steadily to the extent of becoming leading economies of the world. Where are we and why? Unfortuantely our nation being in the grip of so called Maulvis in one form or the other have been persistent in slowing us down. Now the recent wave of Talibanization seems to drive us even backwards to the pre historic era. I agree ,as any reasonable woman/man would. It has nothing to do with Islam or Shariah. It has to do with gaining a dangerous coercive power to satisfy murderous and barbaric instincts of a bunch of illiterate losers. We can no longer afford to sit as silent spectators in the hope of a miracle.We can also not afford to let a revolution arise from inside Sindh. The people there, as I take it are too pre occupied with efforts to combat daily life disruptions with power failures, mobile phone snatching, broken roads, corruptions in every field…. They are already overwhelmed and hence unable to deal with this new crisis-like situation. Some of them may not even see it as a crisis.  I am sure SANA could at least spread awareness regarding this impending disaster. It is ironic that the so called bill to surrender the population of Swat to the mercy of bunch of lunatics was not opposed by one sensible individual in the parliament.I am actually grateful to those Maulvis for not asking for the entire country YET. Unless they revoke the ‘peace deal’and bring the area under a humane law,this infiltration of maulvis must be stopped. One way to do it might be to declare tribal areas including Swat as an independent state with strict visa rules. After all, an organ with cancer sometimes has to be removed to save the entire body.

President Asif Ali Zardari has “ordered an inquiry” into the public flogging of a 17-year-old girl in Swat, and Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has taken his famous suo moto notice by asking the IGP NWFP to produce the girl in court. But we all know nothing can be done against the Taliban who did the evil deed, and that the girl will not come to the court unless the Taliban allow it. More likely, she may be killed instead of being allowed to attend the CJ’s court. As for the ANP government, it had better look after Peshawar because it is once again under siege from the Khyber warlord.

The winners & the loosers!

by Asim Kaghzi, Calgary

The girl flogging video clip is a part of documentary relayed on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) network in Canada, the same documentary also showed public punishment of a man as well, which is equally condemnable, the documentary also showed how the state has practically dissolved on ground in Swat area, the really shocking thing is the failure of State to prove totally ineffective in administration of law and order situation, it is very much true for Swat which is documented, also in Punjab when state was trying to control Noon League Munda from coming to Islamabad from Lahore, whereas state can shoot at site people in Sindh and Baluchistan.
So what does that mean, in my humble opinion, the state has started melting and is bifurcated between winners and losers. I see extremists as winners and Sindhis and Balochs as losers.

What ever is happening in Sawat PPP is not responsible for that. Story is long and recently U.S. has categorically blamed one agency for that. There is beautiful video on PBS – front line which shows how real rulers of Pakistan are dealing with that. I wish I had exact web address for that.
