BB Qureishi

 I always do stress for individual liberty and do shun dependency at all levels while our constitution also guarantees that, to achieve that goal we need a very sound welfare system, orchestrated by highly educated people having great knowledge of human nature, without hurting the egos of our citizens we shall come up with an efficient welfare system, which will ultimately provide protection to each individual in our society and will also give a big boost to our economy too.

Developed western democracies specially Great Britain has a very efficient welfare system which shuns the dependency syndrome and liberate individual from dependency on another individual, Scandinavian countries are also good in saving each individual citizen from tyranny in all forms and manifestations, USA has also very efficient system of checks and balances in this respect.

What has happened to the first ever doctorate degree holder BB Qureishi may God bless her soul is worst example of negligence and individual dependency on his another family member whom was cruel enough to deprive her of her residence and she was compelled to live in Edhi home for survival. Where she had breathed her last finally.

Each such incident proves the existence of cruel hold of ignorant and ruthless people behaving like God father of Italian Mafia on our all institutions with extra expression of hatred for educated few in our society. Ignorant Mafia men within government departments, in politics and in all other spheres of life here in Pakistan do take educated few as hostage and impose their ignorance upon them, people of Pakistan has to shun Mafia rule to avert BB Qureishi and APSC Peshawar massacre like happenings, to avoid jungle like situation in which strong kills the week with impunity.

Sword's relevance with curly long hair of beloveds

'Beloved curls her hair for her lover and sword is sharpened to attack enemy,' says ancient Pushto poet Rehman Baba in a verse of his poem sung by Nashanas in his sweet voice. Pushto poetry gets extra charm when an Afghan singer Nashanas sings it. Whenever I hear this poem of Rehman Baba I start wondering about relevance of his verse regarding curly hair of beloved and sharpening of sword.Though premarital affairs like between Adam Khan and Durkhanai, Musa Khan and Gul Makai and Yousuf Khan and Sher Bano were very few in Pushtoons ancient history and mostly concept of beloved here is of a legal wife.

In present age we all try to remain logical to keep our value high and to present ourselves as normal beings, in olden times it was also a concern, in ancient times Pushtoon society was engaged in wars and the victorious in wars were then passing their free time with their beloveds, so the poetry of that time was always focusing sword and curly hair of beloveds. 

When historians will write about recent history of Pushtoons of Afghanistan and Pakistan their feelings will be the same as narrated by Rehman Baba in his verse centuries ago. Though in present age sword has been replaced by rifles and cannons, both rifles and even cannons are now locally manufactured here in Dara Adam Khel tribal area and are locally manufactured substitute of swords. Long and curly hair of beloveds are the same though, in settled areas some of them opt for boy cut, coloring of long hair are also common many opts to go blonde in beauty parlors.

Ancient poet Khushal Khan Khatak was having hundred wives, even today we all Pushtoons take pride in this fact, his poetry also reflects society of his times involved in wars and subsequent romance. If we go through the poetry of ancient poets we realize that after every war their was peace and plenty of time for romance. Historians while writing history of present and past two decades will be unable to specify any peace time in Pushtoon belt of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Even recent poetry in Pushtoon belt is devoid of romance, no verses regarding curly and long hair of beloveds are any more in a poetry there.

Afghan refugee Juma tells all

Two hundred refugee families of Qandooz area of Afghanistan are in Shen Dhand camp of Kohat says Juma an Afghan refugee dweller of the said camp, he tells that thirty years ago when he came to Pakistan along with his parents was only 25 days old, now he is father of a baby boy and a baby girl and sells oranges in his moving shop consist upon one wheel cart having two handles through which he push around his one wheel cart and some space to carry oranges in it.
Juma says he has got the refugees identity card issued by UNHCR, according to him UNHCR aid was there for refugees dwelling in Sheen Dhand camp of Kohat only for six years during last thirty years or so, now they work and earn their living here in Kohat.
Juma laments that whenever they go back to Qandooze Afghanistan they are being treated as agents in Lala Maidan Kalay of Qandooze and are immediately arrested by authorities there and where his small piece of land is also being captured by his neighbor.
Juma informed me that out of two hundred families currently residing in Sheen Dhand camp only ten families are from Jalalabad and rest of the 190 families are from Qandooze area of Afghanistan. The land in Sheen Dhand Kohat was bought for the camp by America(probably by UNHCR), upon which they had built mud houses to dwell in. No medical care to refugees is available in the camp; patients are brought to Kohat at the refugee’s own expense.
Juma says all the families dwelling in Sheen Dhand camp of Kohat are willing to go back to Afghanistan provided their security has been guaranteed there, he says in Lala Maidan Kalay of Qandooze law of the jungle prevails and strong kills the weak with impunity.

Security forces had identified more than hundred bases of terrorist networks before entering into North Waziristan to hit the head quarters of terrorist organization TTP, according to ISPR press release UN dignitaries and dignitaries of friendly countries have visited Meeran Shah capital of North Waziristan where security forces have displayed the terrorists head quarter and hide outs cleaned from militants along with captured ammunition.

The base of TTP militants in Meeran Shah North Waziristan has been captured by security forces, need to clean settled areas of Pakistan from TTP bases has become dire in the wake of APSC Peshawar massacre,  certain news paper reports reflects that Operation Zarb I Azab has been extended to whole Pakistan now to clear it from miscreants.
Keeping the great potential of Pakistan armed forces and firm resolve of the government in view peace in Pakistan’s settled areas will be guaranteed too and all the bases of miscreants will be destroyed soon, search operation around Peshawar airport seems to be the beginning of Zarb I Azab in settled areas of Pakistan.

APSC Peshawar reopened

Army Public School and College Peshawar hit by terrorists on 16th of December 2014 has been reopened after winter vacation, valiant students were greeted by Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif and his honorable wife earlier this week. ‘Five terrorists whom have planned the attack on APSC Peshawar are being arrested in Afghanistan and are still in the custody of Afghan government,’ private TV channel has reported this today.
With the arrest of master minds involved in massacre of students and their teachers including principal of APSC Peshawar, danger of another such attack has become a remote possibility, to ensure complete security of students here network of terrorists operating in Pakistan has to be eradicated and complete information regarding the terrorist network can be extracted from arrested master minds in Afghanistan.
Peshawar capital of KPK province of Pakistan is surrounded by tribal areas sharing borders with Afghanistan, due to porous terrain and long border between Afghanistan and Pakistan  cross border terrorist activity curtailment needs constant vigilance and deployment of experts in counter terrorism activity both to monitor and confront such elements to prevent any other massacre both in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Due to absence of effective governmental control over Nooristan and Kunar areas of Afghanistan the said region has become hub of terrorists. With departure of US lead NATO forces from Afghanistan at large scale, large scale terrorist activity has been feared at both sides of Pak-Afghan border.
Pakistan Army has been conducting operations in tribal areas of Pakistan to clean these areas from militants, now that ISAF has handed over the charge to Afghan Army Afghan government efforts to control its lawless areas hub of terrorists are required to promote lasting peace and security in this region.

Real power center


In a long journey of political thoughts from Plato’s ideal state and communism of wives and properties  to power politics theories of Morgenthau  human brain has been constantly searching for some sort of system compatible to our existence as individuals and as independent sovereign states having equilibrium in relations with each other to avoid subjugation of small states by large and powerful states and creation of states in which individuals can also live in peace with their fellow beings and can achieve happiness and  prosperity too.
When Rousseau had said ‘Man is born free but is everywhere in chains,’ probably he was married at that time because he had not mentioned anything about woman in his statement, obviously his lady might have created this feeling in him after marriage, many powerful ladies they do so.
Creation of ideal state and ideal international system to govern interstate relations is a dream of every social scientist, too much has been written on this subject and most of the writers were men, very few ladies had ever taken the trouble to govern a state, or to stage a revolution, or to strive for creation of international system capable of governing interstate relations in just and fair manner.
If we go bit deep into history we will come to know that there were matriarchal societies purely dominated by women.  But gradually power was transferred from women to men thus advent of patriarchal societies was witnessed, I agree with historians regarding transformation of societies from Matriarchal to Patriarchal outlook but  do not believe in transfer  of power from woman to man, power still is with woman all around the world. If someone has any doubt about real power center which is woman in each society, must analyze this saying ‘there is a woman behind every great man,’ personally I believe in this saying and so far having fun by being obedient husband, and obedient blab bla bla….
Development of USA and western democracies is also a contribution of this real power center known as woman, advent of large multinational companies, insurance and finance companies, industries, agriculture, educational institutions including  good governance and rest of the humanitarian deeds all are the contributions of ladies in one way or another.
From mother Teresa to Malala Yousufzai true humanitarian stance and devotion has been witnessed in female characters, men they also had done too many great deeds when inspired by women. Being a citizen of a common wealth country I always look towards mother Queen for guidance and blessings before taking any imitative thus often succeed, along with my wife few other ladies having sisterly relations with me are also a big source of inspiration to me always, and I also consult them often. To avoid Rousseau like feelings ‘Man is born free but is everywhere in chains,’ one must know about the real power center of the world and shall learn to obey, respect and take care of ladies around him.

My love for Peshawar 'an open secret'

My love for Peshawar was an open secret during my university days, once Dr. Rais Ahmed Khan asked me where do you want to serve now you are through with your M.Phil, I replied to him sir Peshawar university is my preference, at that time Director Area Study Centre of QAU Dr, Rais Ahmed Khan had sent me immediately to meet Chairman of IR department Peshawar university, when I reached there the chairman may God bless his soul he is no more in this world now has received me well but has refused to appoint me as lecturer on a plea that I look like a hero and shall opt for career as  actor in TV dramas, once Afzal Chitta a famous villain of Punjabi and Urdu movies had also made an offer to me when I accidently met him while trying to run for shelter amid heavy rainfall at a picnic point in Islamabad along with my other friends.  My reply to both these gentlemen was the words of our professors whom were repeatedly telling us that M.Phil is training for research and teaching in universities, and we shall not deviate from our field.
I had started delivering lectures in Kohat Law College finally and used to write a column for English daily Frontier Post, one day I received invitation from the owner of the daily Frontier Post Mr. Rehmat Shah Afridi, I reached there to meet him and that day I realized that elderly Afridi has got a great sense of responsibility and really wants to develop the province, within few minutes of our meeting elderly and wise Afridi had offered me editorship of his daily. I was thrilled, the moment news goes out from the meeting room, and a senior member of the staff had immediately declared strike against the decision of Afridi regarding my appointment decision as editor. I was unable to control my laughter and had told the leader of agitation whom was of the view that he had left civil services of Pakistan and had joined FP, and cannot bear me as editor of FP, that I am not the one who imposes himself upon others it was decision of an elder, and I obeyed but I don’t want him to be in trouble because of your strike threats thus turning down the offer.
On the way back home I was thinking and thinking and thinking in my subconscious was the discussion with Madam Jene Cole US cultural secretary in Islamabad in which I had told her that USA must take steps to save Pakistan from adverse impacts of Talibanization of Afghanistan and shall not encircle Pakistan while joining hands with India keeping the services of Pakistan during cold war era in view. It was a Taliban mind set unwilling to accept me as editor or as lecturer, the said mind set was prevailing in my beloved city Peshawar where good number of my family members has residences and properties and businesses.
Years were passed of all these happenings when I received a phone call from Director General FATA Disaster Management Authority Mr. Arshad Khan that Governor KP Barrister Syed Masud Kausar wants me to serve in FDMA as protection officer at UNHCR sub project. I had no other option but to accept the offer I went there and after joining I have realized that Taliban mind set has been changed here in Peshawar up to larger extent at least they are willing to work along with me.
During two year and three months of service in FDMA I had found the then Director FDMA Khalid most witty, brave and interesting person, today is his birthday and now he is working as secretary planning in FATA secretariat as some of my colleagues have told me. I wish him a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day! My contract with FDMA has not been renewed yet one year has been passed, and symptoms of revival of Taliban mind set are quite eminent in Peshawar again.
To control this menace of Terrorism outcome of Taliban mind set, seen in APSC Peshawar students massacre recently, national assembly session is underway today, one can only hope that our elected leaders will come up with sufficient and appropriate measures in this respect, and the Taliban mindset will be eradicated to give way to educated few in the larger interest of Pakistan.
