Closure of historic Khushal Garh bridge for traffic

Kohat: 29-7-2010


'Historic Khushal Garh bridge has been closed for all sort of traffic on Thursday,' police sources. The said bridge connects Kohat district of KPK with Jund area of Punjab and was built by British rulers of sub-continent around hundred years ago.



Khushal Garh rail road bridge is built over river Indus, where the water flow is now enormously increased due to heavy rainfall in KPK province of Pakistan. Sources have said that the bridge is now expired, but Pakistani engineers and technicians repair it every year to extend its age.



'Two bridges built by British rulers were collapsed amid heavy rainfall in Kohat on Thursday, a bridge on Hangu road was collapsed and another bridge near Jerma village of Kohat was also collapsed,' sources have said. The decision regarding closure of Khushal Garh bridge is quite timely, a repaired bridge might not with stand fierce and heavy flow of water beneath it in Indus river and weight of heavy traffic over it in present humid conditions.

Moonsoon, mangoes and Lussi

Whenever I see you my heart start dancing, a singer was repeatedly singing these lines and his voice was clearly heard emanating from a distant radio, moonsoon clouds had taken over the sky and trees in my lawn were taking showers of water pouring out from the clouds. Within half an hour rainfall was stopped but the sky was remain cloudy, and I had started becoming bit nostalgic.




Moonsoon rain combined with mangoes make a person lively and cheerful, eating mangoes while it is raining becomes a great source of pleasure for me. I do often take sweet Lussi after eating mangoes. Sweet Lussi is a Lahori drink made of blended milk, yougurt and sugar.



In KPK province of Pakistan people drink saltish Lussi. Main supplier of saltish Lussi to me is seven years old Zar Alam the only son of his father and two mothers. The Lussi which Zar Alam supplies to me contains butter in it and I do drink that while having my lunch. Lussi supplies depends upon the cows mood and moods of the two mothers of Zar Alam, so the supplies are often disrupted by the moods of two ladies and their cows, in a barter deal Zar Alam takes cold water, and ice, from my fresh water well, and refrigerater and fruits from my lawn trees. I like Zar Alam becuase, he is only Afghan refugee boy living in mud houses attends his school regularly, his father Dilawar Khan is also good friend of my father.



I was introduced to sweet Lussi, by my university fellow and friend Dr. and Professor Agha Zahid Hilali, in hot summer evenings we both used to go together from our hostel to teachers colony market to drink large glasses of sweet Lussi, from a Lussi shop.



Current Moonsoon season is causing quite heavy showers of water from sky in Kohat district of KPK , where I am based from last 14 years or so. Kohat is my home town and I do reside with my family here, at a distance of 30 yards from my residence Afghan refugees are residing in their mud houses, heavy rain fall becomes problem for them often but they swiftly repair their homes again. Most of these Afghan refugees are nomads, (Koochis) having large flocks of sheeps, goats and cows.



Moonsson season is Islamabad causes too much humidity in air, in hostel rooms we used to switch our heaters on to breath smoothly. Once our hostel rooms were got filled with water at midnight. In Kohat moonsoon rains never cause flood, and air also remains dry due to short span of rainfall. But I miss midnight visits of coffee shop of Islamabad hotel where we used to drink cofee and some snacks.



In Kohat in the evening, shops nd markets get closed and every body rush towards home. Life is too static here, but enviorment is frustration free and causes less anxiety. I do work till midnight, my mobile phone and laptop keep on emitting messages from sources, and I do keep on communicating all the news to APP. My Mrs. she often provides me a cup of coffee or tea at midnight, when the work load is quite heavy and I am awake and working.



Moonsoon will be over soon in Kohat district of KPK, along with my nostalgia, life in between high and rocky mountains of Kohat is quite colorful and romance remains in the air, and of course mangoes of all qualities will also remain available in the market because, Pakistan government has now developed the means to preserve mangoes for long.

Elders predict French revolution in Pakistan

Around three hundred members of Awami National Party are died in Taliban militant attacks during past few years in Swat and other areas of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. On Saturday evening the only son of Information Minister of KPK Mian Iftikhar Hussain also became victim of militants attack and had lost his precious life.




Security agencies were failed to protect the life of Minister's son and brother whom was also critically injured in Pubi bazaar area, when masked men have opened fire at them with fire arms. Prior to this incident I was informed by an elderly figure that bloodshed seems eminent on national scene, anger among the people has been growing and Kyrghistan like episode will be repeated in Pakistan.



He was of the view that people have no money to buy food and conducive conditions which have caused French revolution are also existing in Pakistan too, we should stop building homes and start buying tanks to protect our honor, which is at stake.



I by myself have visited Kohat city and its main bazaar area earlier this week, life was normal but people in main bazaar were quite few, at the end of every month salaried class people can not afford to buy anything that might be the reason behind low number of customers in Kohat bazaar.



Life seems normal in Paracha Town and its surrounding areas too. Due to timely action taken by Kohat police armed rascals are no more visible either in Kohat city or in its suburban areas, hundreds of rascals including militants are disarmed and arrested by police in Kohat.



The violent incident happened in Pubi area of KPK seems to be an attempt of organized gang able to hoodwink intelligence and security agencies responsible to give protection to the family of Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain.



Earlier this month in police club Kohat a CID official had asked me to write in favor of KPK police and put forward his demand for salary increase, I jokingly replied to him that the moment policemen and officers of KPK will become able to prevent attacks on their police stations and on general public and other dignitaries, their salaries will be increaed and I'll definitely write an article in their favor. But in present circustamnces that police is only treating journalists and other peaceful citizens like terrorists and giving free hand to the terrorists to attack police stations and other targets, I can not write any such article in their favor.



The style of ruling junta and security agencies is self destructive in nature, when oil tankers of NATO were hit by terrorists near Sang Jani a reliable elderly figure had told me that Interior Minister Mr. Rehman Malik is of the view that security of NATO oil tankers is concern of US and NATO forces and Pakistan has nothing to do with it. When I replied to elderly figure that security of NATO logistics shall be backed up by Pakistani security agencies to ensure smooth flow of supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan, and to avert any sort of sabotage activity on Pakistani soil, the elder had replied that no body takes a responsibility in Pakistan.



Once we ignore sabotage activity, we encourage the miscreants unknowingly, thus they become more confident and organized, what soever is happening around us is because of complete failure of our intellligence and security agencies. But no one takes these incidents seriously, no body resigns in the wake of such eminent failure that thousands of our citizens including Muhtarima Benazir Bhutto and many other prominent political figures are slained by terrorists.



Denise resigned from his job when a terrorist succeeded to place some explosives in Wall Street area of New York, though nobody was killed or wounded but the failure to prevent a terrorists from placing explosives was enough reason for resignation of security advisor Mr. Denise.



In Pakistan nobody seems to bother about his ability and qualification regarding the specific job, but seems to be more concerned about the perks and priviliges attached to the job. As long as this situation prevails that people backed by mafia rule supreme in government department and in political parties of Pakistan, security to life and property of the hostaged citizens of this country will remain at stake.

Gender based discrimination

US Secretry of State Madam Hillary Clinton had held meetings with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gailani and President of Pakistan Mr. Asif Ali Zardari after her arrival in Islamabad capital of Pakistan. She will proceed towards Afghanistan after her brief stay in Islamabad.




Madam Hillary Clinton had assured president Asif Ali Zardari about US aid regarding development of energy sector in Pakistan.



In Kabul capital of Afghanistan she will attend the international conference and will proceed back to USA afterwards.



She is such a learned lady that her arrival in Pakistan is anxiously awaited by people of Pakistan and Afghanistan, she is among those highly educated leaders whom were having enough sympathy for their fellow human beings and are willing to devote their time and energy to lead and serve them.



In Pakistan nothing bad happens at her arrival or prior to her arrival, very kind lady a real leader, people from all walks of life have true regard for her services for humanity.



Being a citizen of an underdeveloped country, and being surrounded by anti women die hard Taliban and pro Taliban elements I am still very optimistic about future of women folk in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Anti women attitude of psycho paths is a problem prevailing all over the world in general and in Pakistan and Afghanistan in particular. People call themseleves Taliban mistreats women and educated elite, the menace has been spread at such a large scale that is beyond the capcity of law enforcing agencies to arrest all the psycopaths and is beyond the capacity of Pak-Afghan governments to provide psychological treatment to them.



The menace has been spread like a mad cow disease and its victim Taliban militants behave ibnormally in presence of women. One such Taliban young boy holding a leather stick in his hand in my presence was about to lash his younger sister buying sweets from a shop, but when I warned him he had escaped towards his home while leaving his sister behind on the shop, iin brief span of my interaction with him I had observed that his eyes were filled with hatered but the movement of his eyeballs was not synchronized, he was giving a complete look of a psyco path.



Prior to her arrival in Pakistan I came across article written by Rachel Reid regarding the plight of women in Afghanistan. I agree with her that departure of US lead NATO forces will endanger the women fold again and US leniancy towards Taliban militants is tantamount to injustice, impunity for Taliban miscreants involved in crimes against women will further encourage these pscho paths to misbehave further with women folk.



Some effective and apt measures to prevent anti women and anti educated elite activities of Taliban and pro Taliban militants in Pakistan and Afghanistan will be taken by UN and US lead NATO forces prior to their departure from Afghanistan.

Target killing of politicians

During last sixty years good number of high ranking politicians were killed in Pakistan, 'a BNP leader Habib Jalib was died on Wednesday, he was attacked by unknown miscreants in Quetta capital of Baluchistan,' media reports. Habib Jalib was a fearless leader and was boldly helping his people while reaching every where in Baluchistan. His death has caused unrest in Baluchistan province.




From Liaqat Ali Khan to Muhtarima Benazir Bhutto and Habib Jalib their is long series of target killing of politicians. Like Muhtarima Benazir Bhutto, Habib Jalib was also fearless and was unwilling to stay away from the people due to security reasons. on Wednesday when he came out from his residence miscreants had opened fire at him with fire arms and after killing him have managed to escape.



Death of able leaders creats a political vaccume, substitute of Mr. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was never found by Pakistanis, very few people in third world takes such big pains to get education from American or British universities and then to return back and have the will to serve the people.



Normally the leaders in third world get confused regarding adoption of appropriate political structure, in Pakistani federation we can find British parliamentary system, in Indian federation problem is the same. Federation can be kept intact through American mod of presidential system, but our Indian and Pakistani politicians including some scholars plead that America wants to promote some sort of controlled democracy in India and Pakistan, so the element of justice, transparency and accountability are lacking in political structures of these both newly independent British colonies.



During election campaigns political parties seek votes in the name of their martyres, every intelligent and educated being escape from politics because he or she knows that his or he martyrdom will be the only source of his other party members to win elections.



President Asif Ali Zardari had declared year 2010 as local government election year, the current bloody scenes are a prelude for forthcoming election campaign for local government elections.



Sincere leaders like Bhutto, and Habib Jalib fall into the trap of crook election campaign starategy makers of their parties, render their lives unknowingly and become martyres good for attracting emotional voters for their parties.



Even when a hen stops laying eggs America is blamed for that in certain area of Pakistan, their is very little realization of the fact that material development of Muslim world is largely done by America, to adopt American political culture both Indians and Pakistanis must strive to learn more about it. Politics of martyres can not lead a country towards proggress and prosperity but only creats more problems, widows and widowers and orphans behind to lament.

Responsible media

Democracy is a filter through which biases, corruption, and anomalies present in system of governance fade away gradually. Responsible media and responsible politicians emerge as nation builders on pages of history. Media highlights the anamolies present in the system and politicians remove the anomalies, eventually a perfect system of governance can be achieved.




On issues of fake degrees of legislators, media in Pakistan had reacted sharply and timely, but reaction of it was not very positive on part of politicians, despite of going for improvement within their own party ranks, politicians sitting in Punjab Provincial Assembly have passed an anti media resolution and some of the PML(N) provincial assembly members of Punjab province of Pakistan have attacked the journalists outside the assembly building, beating journalists and hurling abuses on them can not improve the tarnished image of politicians, but can get tarnished further.



If political parties have detected fake degrees of their candidates while awarding party tickets to them, that would have been a better omen for democracy in Pakistan, then election commission authorities were also failed to to detect fake degrees presented by candidates for elections nominated by political parties, when political leaders have started campaigning in bye elections for their earlier disqualified fake degree holder candidates that was point where public circles in Pakistan had started exerting pressure on media to highlight this open support for criminal attittude on part of political leaders and their party candidates.



True politicians not only appreciate media for its positive and timely criticism but also act swiftly to correct the wrong done in the recent past highlighted by media. Mian Nawaz Sharif was heard as saying on VOA Urdu service in his interview that, he has ousted the Sanaullah Musti Khel from his party whom had presented anti media resolution in Punjab assembly, his brother Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif carries of further his orders or not, it is yet to be seen.



It will be quite prudent to deal with all fake degree holders whether serving in government departments or are working as elected members of assemblies in Pakistan, in apt manner and law should take its course against them. Each political Party has good number of truly educated members and can replace the fakers. If political parties fail to do so, will turn theirseleves into mafia, and mafia is always a concern of law enforcing agencies of Pakistan.

Dubai culture

According to Mr. Peerzada ruler of Dubai owns whole of Dubai and no one else owns any property their, he wants to invest 50000$ in Dubai but he was told that his business will be owned by ruler of Dubai, Peerzada being a Canadian citizen was unable to swallow this suggestion.




During Musharaf regieme a source has told me that every body is going to president house to transfer his or her property to General Parvez Musharaf then president of Pakistan. Being a close ally of USA Musharaf was ray of hope for every citizen of Pakistan and they were expecting solid measures from him regarding promotion of respect for lives and properties of Pakistani citizens, I by myself have never believed in that source apparently blaming General Musharaf for getting transfered the properties of citizens of Pakistan in his own name.



In yesterday newspaper when I came across a news that General Parvez Musharaf is a host of PML(Q) leadership in Dubai, he has invited his allies to a luxury hotel in Dubai to launch a major political offensive in Pakistan. I became bit sure of the earlier information recieved from sources regarding his original designs which are some what similar to ruler of Dubai.



Pakistan is a democracy in which constitutional guarantees have been provided to its citizens regarding their fundamental rights and freedoms. General Parvez Musharaf has chosen wrong pitch to play at. People of Pakistan including his own political allies will never transfer their properties in his name. Previously he was President of Pakistan and Chief of the Army Staff too but was unable to compell anybody to do so.



Respect for the law and constitution of Pakistan is a criteria through which our people and media assess the quality of leadership of our existing leaders. the one whom is committed to constitutional provisions will flourish. All those whom are bent upon befooling people in name of democracy or Islam will be reduced to the status of constitution and law violaters and will be shifted to appropriate place eventually fit for law violaters.



I can observe the emerging trends within Pakistan's military bureaucracy and general public, realization of the fact that our prime national security need is respect for fundamental human rights and freedoms guaranteed by our constitution is a prevailing trend among them. Any political entity devoid of respect for constitution will be discouraged at all levels.



Prudent course of action is that political parties shall adopt constitution of Pakistan into their manifestos while planning political initiatives. PPP had respected right of life guaranteed by the constitution by restoring jobs of the people in various government departments irrespective of their political affiliations and despite of price hike people have voted again for the said party candidates during recent elections held in Gilgit Baltistan province of Pakistan.



Pakistan and USA are long time allies and share political values, American experience reflects that tremendous growth was witnessed in all fields when constitutional guarantees regarding fundamental rights and freedoms were implemented in letter and spirit their. Dubai is oil rich Sheikhdom, but even their people get handsome allowance from government known as Wazifa. Dubai ruling Sheikh Rashid's family gives right of life to every citien of Dubai by providing them their share of money in resources of Dubai.



How long so called leaders of Pakistan will be able to cheat people of Pakistan by depriving them from their share in national resources by keeping them unemployed and by depriving them from any sort of unemployment allowance is yet to be seen. But growing awareness among the people of Pakistan reflects that soon their will be a positive change in attitude of leadership and people will be able to get their fundamental rights and freedoms envisaged in constitution of Pakistan.

Fake degree holder legislators becomes cause of concern for public circles in Pakistan

Issue of fake educational degrees of elected legislators in Pakistan has become concern of public circles, MI sources have said that total 160 legislators are suspected for presenting fake degrees, and at the time of nomination before Election Commission of Pakistan authorities, were cleared as candidates for general elections, now good number of elected legislators have resigned in the wake of judicial proceedings against them.




Article 45 of Pakistan's constitution gives power to the president to grant amnesty to any convict sentenced by any court of law in Pakistan. Thus all the fake degree holder legislators can seek amnesty from the president in case convicted by courts.



More PML(N) elected legislators were found guilty of presenting fake degrees then PPP legislators, Mian Nawaz Sharif and Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gailani were witnessed campaigning for reelction of their

fake degree holder party members though all the elected legislators including Prime Minister have taken oath of their office in which they had pledged to be fair and honest during tenure of their office.



Eighteenth amendment made by current legislature having fake degree holders legislators in it have amended the provision requiring BA qualification for becoming a candidate for legislative assembly elections. Thus validity of 18th amendment has also become questionable.



The elections were held under General Parvez Musharaf rule, laxity of election commission to allow fake degree holder candidates for participation in elections seems deliberate attaempt on part of dictator to discredit elected assemblies. How a prime minister and opposition leader in country like Pakistan can go against his own party candidate when the said candidate has been cleared by election commission of Pakistan. Political parties are not so organized in Pakistan to check the credentials of their own party candidates prior to their nomination.



In the forth coming peace conference of all political parties in Pakistan, the issue of fake degrees and future of democracy in Pakistan must be also be on agenda. Without knowing how to drive a car, how a person can drive it? To attract educated people into politics, political parties must take necessary measures, to survive as political entities in presence of free and fair media in the country.

Armed terrorists enjoy freedom of movement in Lahore capital of Punjab

Lahore capital of Punjab has become punching bag for terrorists, where they can easily move around with their explosive vests, hand grenades and rifles, can kill as much people as they feel like killing, though they were always confonted by valiant men and officers of Lahore police and were either killed or captured but initial freedom of movement which the terrorists enjoy within Lahore has become quite an astonishing factor.




Late Thursday night suicide bomb attacks on the shrine of sufi saint Hazrat Data Gang Baksh in Lahore which were resulted in demise of at least 42 pilgrims and causing wounds to 175 others have been condemned by Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gailani and he had immediately ordered thorough investigations, in fact PPP lead coalition government has done every thing to curb terrorism during last three years, the terrorists another favorite target was Peshawar capital of KPK but now situation is under control of KPK provincial government.



Yesterday a source inside Orakzai agency tribal area of Pakistan had revealed that at least fifty to sixty families of Arab militants are camped in Mamun Zai area of Orakzai agency. In lawless tribal areas of Pakistan and in ill administered rural areas of Punjab militants also enjoy considerable amount of freedom and support from feudal elite.



When PPP lead coalition government takes measure to enhance the writ of the government in lawless areas, feudal elite criticise the government for spending too much money. Leadership of PPP and PML(N) are also facing the challange of corruption within their own party ranks, number of their elected representatives in both provincial and national legislatures were found guilty of presnting fake degrees. In absence of able men in their own party ranks neither Prime Minister Gailani can act decisively nor Mian Nawaz Sharif or Shehbaz Sharif can take steps necessary for improvement of law and order situation in the country.



'During last three years at least 3400 people were died in terrorist attacks in Pakistan,' geo news report. People look towards government for protection, and popularly elected government of PPP lead coalition and government of PML (N) in Punjab province of Pakistan due to presence of fake degree holders in its ranks has become hostage of fakers. Prime Minister Gailani by himself is a clean man and holds original degrees but has been compelled to defend his own party members proven fakers in court of law.



Only ANP lead coalition government in KPK has expressed its regard for law of the land and constitution by making its minister for prison resign to face abduction allegations against him in court of law.



Even President Asif Ali Zardari seems to be a hostage of corrupt element within his own party ranks, he had pardoned the interior minister Rehman Malik when he was proven guilty of certain crimes in high court decision against him, Rehman Malik must have opted for apeal in Supreme Court against decision of High Court but has made himself a suspect by getting amnesty from the President of Pakistan.



Political parties if realize the fact that democracy in Pakistan is a continuous phenomena and will not be hampered by any martial law again, will definitely strive to induct able men within their party ranks, and by doing this will definitely succeed to improve system of governance to provide protection to the lives and properties of its citizens.
