National and global agenda

Before moving ahead with national and global agenda, each country if takes certain aspects into consideration, we might become able to make this world a better place to live in.

Environment if gets polluted survival of human beings and other living organisms becomes difficult if not impossible. Our agendas must be very environment friendly both of national and global levels.

Ideological and cultural diversity will finally melt down in integrated world of today through internet and other new communication technologies, the world has become melting pot of civilizations now. Humans living in each part of the globe will take rational decisions to opt for freedom and fundamental rights based political systems, once are able to compare between existing systems, which are out put of different ideologies.

Each economic power of the world to stay remain an economic giant needs markets filled with people having purchasing power to buy their products, the quality based product producers having clear concept regarding marketing and buyers potential to buy, will be able to maintain their economic status as power.

Sabre rattling related investments, and security related expenses are high at global level due to prevailing ignorance and poverty in certain parts of the globe. Investments on welfare measures will not only increase the living standards of the people but will also enhance their purchasing power which will ultimately diminish global economic recession.

Holy pole

In olden times people used to make purchases according to their needs and choices, in today's world even if you are on duty and passing through bazaar, many will try to force you buy the items which you don't need even.

 Near King's Gate of Kohat which is now known as Shah Faisal gate a young man will come near speedily and will give you a printed paper almost by force, if you refuse to accept, he will insist. The piece of paper carries a writing about generic drug which is locally made by Hakeem sahib and is vital for your success in marriage.

Once I stopped that delivery man and told him frankly, I am out to see the situation around, I do not rely always rely on sources for making news reports, and what is written on your one page advertisement is not my concern. Though it is concern of Health Department inspectors, they have the responsibility to take care of public health, and you and your Quack are out to play havoc with it.

Smoke emitting noisy vehicles and heaps of garbage in and around Kohat city and blocked drains there, are also non of my business, Health and Traffic department men and officers along with Tehsil Municipal Authorities and now we have elected local government authorities, it is their concern. Substandard edible items, sale of rotten fruits and vegetables and deplorable conditions on meet shops is also their concern.

All those whom are complaining about electricity pole installed in quarter of the road used for VVIP movement in Kohat is concern of WAPDA and CNW authorities, once it became my concern too, exactly at a distance of few hundred yards from this holy pole, amid simmering heat driver had plunged the vehicle into ditch in road, I was sitting beside him, so he said sorry sir weather is too hot and I am fasting, was unable to see the ditch, I hurriedly asked him can you see this holy pole standing inside the road? He said yes, and we passed through it safely. At that day I made a complete report equipped holy photo of the pole and e mailed it to head office in Islamabad.

So far the holy pole is standing erect inside the road no action regarding its replacement has not been taken, though in rest of Pakistan including Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar concerned authorities are taking action against hotels and fast food restaurants for selling sub standard food items and are also making roads much more safer for public.

Sacrificial animals

This year prices of sacrificial sheep are gone high in Kohat district of KPK Pakistan. 'Due to floods in plains of Punjab supply of sheep has become scarce,' sources have said. Earlier Kohat police had also arrested few cattle smugglers trying to smuggle sheep, goats and cows to Afghanistan.

High prices of sacrificial cattle are making customers doing window shopping only in cattle market. They come, see the sheep ask for the price and almost each sheep worth sacrificing is above the rate of fifty thousand rupees, much beyond their purchasing power.

Some people are quite optimistic and are of the view that prices of sacrificial animals will come down one day prior to Eid. Kohat police has also raided illegal cattle markets and had booked at least ten cattle sellers this week.

So far one sheep and a goat (Bakra) has been bought, my younger brother Rauf had traveled a long distance along with my nephew to buy these two. My youngest brother Shabir is in Mecca along with his wife to perform Hajj, he will sacrifice sheep there in Mecca on Eid day.

International Peace Day

On 'International Peace Day' I am at peace with myself as ever, it is because, of the UN funded institutions from where I got education and training to remain unbiased, fair and honest not only with myself but with all my relations, and with humanity at large.

It is my personal experience and staunch belief that spread of UN funded educational institutions are guarantee for lasting peace, in these institutions we are taught how to be world citizens, and how to think in terms of betterment of the humanity at large.

The knowledge imparted in UN funded institutions, and multi culture environment provided to us there makes us feel and act like world citizens. My university fellow from tiny Island of Indian Ocean gets a chance to learn and teach within the group of international students and to cross the psychological barriers imposed on his thinking by smallness of homeland.

Financial aid from UN to promote understanding between cultures and to promote global thinking through financing educational institutions around the world is a solid effort in terms of promotion of world peace.

UNHCR Chief has rightly pointed out recently that today's international system is neither uni polar nor multi polar. the world is victim of anarchy now, millions of people are displaced around the globe. To highlight causal link of this situation I must quote Professor Khwaja, 'frustration grows into agitation, and agitation turns into rebellion or revolution finally.'

We must ascertain causes of increased frustration at global level. which is leading the world towards anarchy, and shall find the remedies too to have lasting peace in all parts of the globe. Unbiased and genuinely educated brains can be great help to humanity. I wish all the best to people around the globe on 'International Peace Day' and do urge UN to keep on financing education around the globe to achieve lasting peace through increase in number of unbiased minds.

Democracy loving people of Pakistan

If we stay within our constitutional limits as citizen and as an institution, we can succeed in achieving our individual and institutional objectives, deviation from constitutional means and limits often landed us into shame. We were without appropriate constitution in 1970's when Pakistan was dismembered, 1973 constitution is a consensus document, to make it further workable appropriate amendments can be made in it, if the political will and expertise is there. We can change it from parliamentary to Presidential form best suited to needs of our federation.

Individual when aspires to make a political party and after its formation changes it into mafia like institution is bound to meet shame, fear and deception are not a good device  to rule democracy loving people of Pakistan. History of Pakistan reflects that people have defeated each dictator whether came through ballot or bullet.

It is high time to think and act in a manner prevalent in developed world to be part of it. At the same time we must not ignore our defense needs, and stay remain committed to National Action Plan, as a nation united to frustrate nefarious designs of internal and external elements. We can implement out put of our intellectual growth only if we are an independent state citizens. So strong defense related institutions and strong democratic institutions which contribute to further strengthening of our defense shall be our main priority.

Conflict caused attack repulsed

While I am writing these lines thirteen dead bodies of terrorists are spread over in Pakistan Air Force Badaber Air Base in Peshawar, they had started their attack on the base early in the morning today and attacked residential area, and guard room, two armed forces men were martyred and ten others including two officers and a young boy were injured.

Search operation is underway there and at this point exact number of causalities and numbers of injured which media sources have revealed reflects that 16 people doing prayers inside the mosque including Captain Isfandyar are martyred, the Captain had valiantly confronted the terrorists and sacrificed his life in his effort to stop them from doing further harm.

The terrorists were stopped from repeating the history of Army Public School Peshawar, women and children inside the base were saved.

Pakistan during Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, was often hit by miscreants, Karachi had witnessed bomb explosions during that period but rest of Pakistan was not so vulnerable.

Gradual growth of conflict like situation after arrival of millions of refugees from Afghanistan and then millions displaced from FATA areas had turned Pakistan into conflict zone.

'Twenty terrorist organizations and one hundred big terrorists are active in Pakistan currently,' media reports. Conflict prevailing in Pakistan has sectarian, and ideological dimensions, external support for such elements has been also been proved by our intelligence agencies.

Some of the militant groups are anti democracy and are fighting for imposition of Islamic Sharia of their own brand. Others have sectarian concerns. These groups are having external support too.

It is going to be a long war, though Pakistan armed forces men and officers are valiantly and intelligently pursuing their targets set in Operation Zarb i Azab before them by their command. In consequence of this operation in tribal areas of Pakistan number of attacks in our cities are decreased, but keeping the existence of large number of terrorists and terrorist organization in view, the risk of retaliatory measures from them is very high, some of the analysts are of the view that current attack on Badaber Air Base Peshawar is reaction of ongoing armed forces operation in tribal areas of Pakistan.

Syrian refugees

In Syria where sectarian nature of conflict has caused displacements and citizens are compelled to leave their homeland and are seeking refuge in Europe and USA,  conflict might linger on because, Syrian government against which three major groups are fighting to bring it down have also international support, and groups fighting against it are also having support from outside world, two militant groups having Islamic agenda of extending rule of one Caliph to whole Islamic world, while third group has limited objective of bringing Asad regime down.
For long period of time when internal conflict prevails warring groups get enough time to indoctrinate and conquer the minds of population. If the population is educated and agendas of warring groups are not so appealing to it, then even if displaced can be comfortably accommodated anywhere in the world without lager risk of security for host country's own population.
Syrians were ruled by Bath party for a long period of time, so right wing radical groups have very little chance to conquer their minds.
Germany has become a host of two hundred thousand Syrian refugees, and USA might take them too.

My Experience with Majority rule

On August 15th 2011 a written order was served to me regarding my appointment in FATA Disastar Management Authority prior to it Director General FDMA of that time Arshid Khan had informed me through a phone call at my cell phone that Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that I shall join FDMA as Protection Officer. On first of Sepetember I had joined FDMA'S Peshawar head office obediently, the moment copy of contract was put before me for my signatures, I was astonished to see that terms and conditions in it were very discriminating, the only good clause in it was that I am not bound to obey illegal orders. I signed it.

At that time Director FDMA Khalid Ilyas had arranged a seat for me by order in common office with finance and admin section of FDMA employees, in fairly large room eight people with different ranks were accommodated together. Four female social mobilizers were seated in the same room on a large sofa, rest of us were having chair and table in it.

In government offices rank and file matters along with strict adherence to office disciplinary rules, but our cute social mobilizer sister Naheed Khatak was of the view that in office even majority is authority. Later on when her contract was ended I became able to eat lunch of my own choice at break time, during her presence I was unable to eat my secure lunch without facing criticism from her. Time and time again I told her politely that she shall take care of rank and file and as subordinate she shall act accordingly but she was so innocent and misguided that always she insisted, 'Sir, you have to obey the majority dictates in office and shall eat as we all eat'. Once our cute little sister was so infuriated that had threatened me, 'sir with arrival of PTI Government in Pakistan we will end your contract with FDMA' and on 31st of December 2013 my cute little sister succeeded in doing so. I congratulate her on her victory and do wish her all the best. Whether that notice which ended the contracts of all 59 of us working on FDMA's UNHCR sub projects was fake or original that will be determined by investigating authorities the notice was signed by then DG FDMA and was having no seal or reference number on it.

So many times I had written in my essays on democracy that my love for mother Queen and other British Colonial rulers emanates from the fact that they brought out subcontinent from dark ages and taught us how to deliberate and agree to disagree, and when I point out the fact that unchecked majority rule is a big threat to democracy itself in Pakistan and India, while keeping system of checks and balances present in US political system, with the intention to improvise democratic institutions further and to pave the way for lasting democratic rule, very few can understand my point of view.

After teaching British, Pakistan and USA constitutions for seven long years in a law college I had reached to the conclusion that parliamentary form of government is not compatible option in federation and paves the way for dictatorship of majority and both India and Pakistan are worst example of this. Presidential form of government equipped with checks and balances and upper house of the parliament equipped with equal powers with lower house, guarantees the unity of federation equipped with true democracy.

The great confusion which prevails here regarding fundamental human rights is also outcome of brute majority dictatorship in both India and Pakistan, Indian leadership and public along with establishment are unable to realize that right of self determination of the people of Kashmir has been recognized by UN and is part of the partition formula through which Muslim majority areas were to included in Pakistan. They are also unable to realize that sabotage activity in nuclear Pakistan conducted by Indian RAW can result in all out war, and both India and Pakistan shall resolve their outstanding disputes in peaceful manner through bilateral or multilateral means.

Defeat of ten times bigger aggressor

War is not a solution of any problem, it creates more problems, no peace loving nation opts for war against its neighbors, same is the case with Pakistan, in September 1965 during the night Indian Generals drunk with power and their locally made low quality whisky have invaded Lahore, with the intention to conquer Lahore and to have dinner in Jim Khana club of Lahore, the moment their Army officers and men victims of hate in their own country divided on Caste lines, but made drunk to forget their mutual hatred and get united to conquer Lahore, have crossed the border were soon confronted by Major Aziz Bhatti and his team, ten times bigger enemy was not only stopped but was made to run back by few officers and men of Pakistan Army, dream of Indian Army General to have dinner in Jim Khan club of Lahore was soon became a night mare for him, his men and his officers.
On each sector Indian Army aggressors were not only stopped but defeated completely during seventeen days of war, MM Alam a Pakistan Air Force Fighter Pilot had made new world records in air combat by hitting Indian lousy bombers in his 104 fighter plane. Victory of Pakistan in 1965 war against ten times bigger aggressor had enhanced the prestige of Pakistan, and Pakistan also became focus of researchers whom were keen to dig out how a ten times bigger enemy can be defeated.
India being center of communal hatred and discrimination against its own Hindu majority of low caste Hindus and other minorities will never be able to have winning Army, their mutual hatred is their worst enemy, and they will never be able to conquer Pakistan.
