Kohistan bus ambush kills 18




Sectarian gunmen ambushed a bus on Tuesday, killing 18 Shia Muslims in a usually peaceful region of northern Pakistan that neighbours the former Taliban stronghold of Swat, officials said.
The bus was stopped, before passengers were ordered off and shot in the mountainous district of Kohistan as it travelled from Rawalpindi to the northern city of Gilgit.
“Armed men hiding on both sides of the road attacked the bus,” local police chief Mohammad Ilyas said.
“Eighteen people have died and eight wounded,” he added. The ambush happened near the town of Harban, 130 miles (208 kilometres) north of the capital Islamabad.
Survivors said seven or eight gunmen stopped the bus, forced the passengers to get off and then opened fire, regional administration chief Khalid Omarzai told AFP by telephone, confirming the casualty numbers.
“It appears to be a sectarian attack,” local MP Abdul Sattar Khan said.
“Its a remote area. We are getting reports that the gunmen forced people to get off the bus. They checked their papers and shot them dead,” he told AFP.
The victims were Shia Muslims, he said. “It could be the outcome of the murder of two Sunni Muslims a few days ago in Gilgit. The people of the area had vowed they would take revenge,” Khan added.
Authorities were slow to confirm the motive and insisted militants are not active in the area.
Kohistan borders the Swat valley, where Pakistan in 2009 managed to put down a two-year Taliban insurgency.
Omarzai told AFP that he could not immediately confirm whether it was a sectarian attack, saying that the police were investigating.
President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had strongly condemned the Kohistan incident.
The two leaders directed the concerned authorities to ensure best medical treatment for the injured.
Gilani said such incidents  could not deter the government’s resolve to fight the menace.
While the president said the culprits of such heinous crime would not be spared

Broadband Service Availability indicates the number of times PTA was able to successfully access the broadband services. The bandwidth speed is the measure of how much data a
subscriber can receive or send to the maximum for different tariffs. RTT is the time taken for the data packet to reach a particular destination and return.
Retain-ability is measure of how much time a connection remained connected during the period of 60 minutes.
PTA said that it graded each QoS parameter into Grade A, B, C, D and E based on the
percentage of score obtained during the measurement.

India, Pakistan and SAARC


Manmohan Singh and Yusuf Raza Gilani hold the key to South Asia’s progress
The world is convinced that the 21st century will be Asia’s century. The only question is whether it will be only East Asia’s century or South Asia’s as well.
China’s great moderniser Deng Xiaoping famously told the late Rajiv Gandhi that “the 21st century can only be the Asian century if India and China combine to make it so”. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh can well tell his Pakistani counterpart this week that the only way South Asia can become a vibrant element of the new Asian century is if India and Pakistan combine to make it so.
As leaders of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) meet later this week in Bhutan, they must all ask themselves where this important part of Asia is headed, even as Asia to our East moves relentlessly forward.
Do any of Saarc’s members have a future that can be truly independent of their South Asian identity? Hardly. Can Pakistan hope to be part of a dynamic and rising Asia without resolving its problems at home and with India? Impossible. Can India sustain high growth for long, like China, without a more cooperative relationship with its neighbours, including Pakistan? Unlikely.
At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, South Asia stands once again at a cross roads. It can go forward, along with the more dynamic economies of East Asia, and emerge as the second engine of global growth by the middle of the century, or it can remain in a low-level equilibrium of poverty, conflict and perpetual instability.
If there are any political leaders or strategic analysts in any of the South Asian countries who think that their country can break loose from the neighbourhood and have a rosy future irrespective of what happens in the region, they live in a world of make believe.
The region has had such leaders before. Many in Pakistan thought they could delink from South Asia and attach themselves to the richer Arab and Islamic world to their west. Some in India thought New Delhi too can delink itself from its neighbourhood and “Look East” for prosperity. South Asia’s smaller countries also had fanciful notions of their individual autonomy. Some, like the Maoists in Nepal and the Sinhala chauvinists in Sri Lanka, still see a future for themselves independent of the “Mother Continent”.
The saner lot, even in Pakistan, recognise that what geography and economics propose, mere politics cannot dispose.
If Saarc has to be revived and made a more dynamic regional organisation, then India and Pakistan must get their act together. Both countries have huge internal problems and there are constituencies for peace in both countries, just as there are constituencies for exporting domestic problems across the border in both. Pakistan has used terror to thwart India’s progress, but the elephant moves on at a handsome pace of 8 per cent and more, even as Pakistan has slowed down to 2-3 per cent growth in recent years.
The last few years have, however, shown that the two neighbours owe it to their own people and their region as a whole to amicably resolve their differences, if each of the two countries and the region as a whole have to move forward.
The starting point of any meaningful dialogue between India and Pakistan is for the two to recognise each other’s concerns. Pakistan must demonstrate much greater understanding of India’s concerns about cross-border terrorism and the need to convince Indian public opinion about its sincerity in dealing with the planners and perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai and several other terrorist attacks.
Equally, India must address Pakistan’s genuine fears about river water utilisation and deal convincingly with the issue of Kashmir. Pakistan must rid itself of baseless fears about Indian attempts to destabilise it because any destabilisation of Pakistan can only hurt India even more.
The dialogue between Dr Singh and former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf began with the mutual acknowledgment of these realities and each other’s concerns. It reached a critical point of mutual agreement when President Musharraf got dethroned.
It appears Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani is fighting shy of picking up the threads from where President Musharraf had left them off. Much water has flown down the Indus and US President Barack Obama’s AfPak policy has muddied the waters. It has certainly encouraged Pakistan to overplay its hand.
Dr Singh should remind his counterpart that despite all the money the US is pouring into Pakistan, its economy is in doldrums, with mounting debt, 3 per cent growth and 9 per cent inflation. Pakistan has itself become a victim of the jihadi terrorism and internal conflict.
If realism on Pakistan’s part implies getting a reality check on India’s relative size and success, realism on India’s part implies coming to terms with Pakistan’s power to be a spoiler. Dr Singh and Mr Musharraf came around to getting a balanced and correct view of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They worked out a realistic modus vivendi. Mr Gilani and his friends in the Pakistan army must catch up and get real.
A realistic and pragmatic leadership in the region is one which tries to resolve cross-border issues so that domestic problems can be handled better. The challenge for every Saarc government is at home and unless domestic problems are tackled, the region will not progress or congeal.
India and Pakistan bear a special responsibility to revitalise Saarc as the region’s biggest nations. The India-Pakistan quarrel has made Saarc non-functional. A resolution of the disputes between the two is vital to the region’s development.
It was in April 2005 that Dr Singh and Mr Musharraf began writing a new chapter in South Asian history. April 2010 would be a good month to get that project back on track.

India plans wargames near Pakistan border


india wargamesNEW DELHI: The Indian military is to conduct one of its largest mock war drills —involving 20,000 troops —close to the country’s border with Pakistan, an official said on Monday.
The manoeuvres, named Shoorveer or Brave Warrior, which will also involve 200 Russian-made tanks, are due to begin in the deserts of India’s state of Rajasthan next month, army spokesman colonel Jagdeep Dahiya told AFP.
“The exercise will be one of the largest manoeuvres conducted so far,” he said, adding that latest warplanes would be factored into the drills, which are scheduled to end in May.
In a separate statement the military said tanks, frontline combat vehicles, artillery, helicopters, fighter jets, drones, air-defence weapons and military radars would be part of the exercise.
Another military source said the event would be held less than 200 kilometres (124 miles) from the highly militarised border with Pakistan.
Dahiya dismissed fears the exercise —to be conducted by an elite military corps raised only for cross-border assault —would crank up tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad.
“We do inform Pakistan in advance whenever such large-scale exercises are conducted by us,” the army colonel added.(AFP)

Rupee Closes Weaker Against US Dollar


Latest Business News / KARACHI: Rising oil prices did, though, put pressure on the rupee in the currency market Wednesday, which ended weaker at 90.68/72 to the dollar, compared with Tuesday’s close of 90.60/65 to the dollar.
Rupee closes weaker against US dollar
The rupee touched a record low of 91.28 to the dollar on Jan. 9, pressured by worries about higher payments for oil imports and the country’s overall economic health.
The rupee is likely to stay under pressure, and the State Bank of Pakistan on Saturday cautioned that the real challenge is to finance the projected current account deficit. The latest monetary policy announcement kept the key policy rate flat at 12 percent for the next two months.
The current account recorded a provisional deficit of $2.154 billion in the first six months of the 2011/12 fiscal year, compared with a surplus of $8 million in the same period last year, according to data from the State Bank of Pakistan.
The deficit is likely to widen further in coming months because of debt repayments and a lack of external aid.
Dealers said they were also cautious after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) advised Pakistan to take immediate steps to tackle growing budget pressures and raise interest rates to contain inflation.
The IMF last week projected a widening of Pakistan’s budget deficit in the 2011/12 fiscal year to 7 percent of gross domestic product, compared with the government’s revised budget target of 4.7 percent.
In the money market, overnight rates ended flat at the top level of 11.90 percent, unchanged from Tuesday’s close. Dealers said they were awaiting the result of the Pakistan Investment Bond auction, due to be announced later today.
Dealers expect a rise in the cut-off yields in the PIB auction. (Reuters)

Suicide Blast at Afghan airport: Police


Latest World News / Kabul -  At least six people were killed and seven wounded in a suicide car bomb attack at the gates of Jalalabad airport in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, police said.
Suicide Blast at Afghan airport Police
“Six people are dead,” Nangarhar provincial police spokesman Hazrat Mohammad told AFP. Nato troops have sealed off the area, where they have a base, said provincial spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdul Zai.
The attack comes after at least 30 people were killed in six days of violent anti-US demonstrations across the country in protest over the burning of Korans at a US military airbase.
On Sunday, seven US soldiers were wounded in a grenade attack on their base in northern Kunduz province, police said.
President Hamid Karzai went on television Sunday to appeal for calm.
Karzai “condemned with the strongest words” the treatment of Islam’s holy book and said the perpetrators should be punished, but told his countrymen: “Now that we have shown our feelings it is time to be calm and peaceful.”
He said he respected the emotions of Afghans upset by the Koran burning in an incinerator pit at Bagram base north of Kabul, but urged them not to let “the enemies of Afghanistan misuse their feelings”.
Taliban insurgents have called on Afghans to kill foreign troops in revenge for the incident, and claimed to have been behind the shooting deaths of the two US advisers in the interior ministry in Kabul on Saturday.

LOS ANGELES: Pakistani filmmaker and first-time Oscar nominee Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won an Academy Award on Monday for her documentary about acid attack victims, a first for a Pakistani.

In her acceptance speech, Chinoy dedicated the award to the women of Pakistan. "All the women in Pakistan working for change, don't give up on your dreams, this is for you," she said.

Directed by Daniel Junge and produced by Sharmeen Chinoy, the film follows British plastic surgeon Dr. Mohammad Jawad, who returns to his homeland to help victims of acid burns.

More than 100 people, mainly women and girls, are disfigured in acid attacks every year in Pakistan, although groups helping survivors say many more cases go unreported.

"The women who decided to be a part of the documentary did so because they wanted to make their voices heard and wanted to bring attention to this form of assault," Chinoy said in an interview conducted before she won the Oscar.

"The main reason that they are in 'Saving Face' is to make their stories heard and have an impact."

Many victims are women attacked by their husbands, and others assaulted for turning down a proposal of marriage. One girl in the documentary describes how she was burned after rejecting the advances of her teacher. She was 13 at the time.

Another woman featured in the film is 25-year-old Rukhsana, whose husband threw acid on her and her sister-in-law doused her in gasoline before her mother-in-law lit a match and set her on fire.

Chinoy said she hopes the cases in her film will resonate for others in Pakistan.

"It is a story of hope with a powerful message for the Pakistani audience. I felt this would be a great way to show how Pakistanis can help other Pakistanis overcome their problems," she said.

Chinoy's films have won international acclaim. Her 2010 documentary, Pakistan's Taliban Generation, won an International Emmy Award.

The documentary competed against "God Is the Bigger Elvis," a Rebecca Cammisa and Julie Anderson film about a mid-century starlet who chose the church over Hollywood; "The Barber of Birmingham," a Gail Dolgin and Robin Fryday film that follows the life of 85-year-old barber James Armstrong and the legacy of the civil rights movement; James Spione's war film "Incident in New Baghdad"; and "The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom," a film by Lucy Walker and Kira Carstensen that follows survivors of Japan's 2011 earthquake and their struggle to recover from the wave that crushed their homes and lives.


Pak-Eng series set for crunch finale


ABU DHABI: Batting remained a major concern for the hosts as Pakistan and England enter into Twenty20 series decider at Sheikh Zayed Stadium today (Monday).

ABU DHABI: Batting remained a major concern for the hosts as Pakistan and England enter into Twenty20 series decider at Sheikh Zayed Stadium today (Monday).
Pakistan batsmen again defied all the expectations by throwing away their wickets in the second Twenty20 and lack of game plan was evident in their loss in pursuit to an achievable target. Shahid Afridi and Hammad Azam provided some entertainment to the crowd through their quick-fire innings but after Hammad's departure Pakistan victory hopes were ended and England took control of the match and won it easily by 38 runs.
Pakistan lost half their side for 50 by the ninth over but consolation for them came in the promise of Hammad. Misbah has yet to allow him a bowl in this series, which is short-termism at its worst with World Twenty20 approaching, but even at more than 10 an over he posed a threat until a steepling blow was held at long-on by Jos Buttler.
Pakistan skipper Misbah wants to forget the 38 runs defeat to England in the second Twenty20 match and look forward positively toward the third and final Twenty20 match of the series.
Misbah said: "Our main approach will be to forget the last game and think positively. We will play the game with a positive frame of mind as we want to win the match badly. I hope everyone will come with good performances in this match."
Misbah sportingly appreciated England's Jonny Bairstow's fine knock. "He (Bairstow) played really well especially at a time when England was in trouble after losing players like (Kevin) Pietersen and (Ravi) Bopara. I think his knock set the game for England and he looks a good player for this format of the game."
Misbah does not believe that the target of 150 was a tall order. "It was a gettable total though it was a fighting score provided one batted properly. Our batting disappointed us once again."
England adopted quickly to the match situation and have learnt their lessons quickly. Coach Andy Flower said England's youthful side have gained vital experience against Pakistan which will help them in their bid to defend their World Twenty20 title later this year.
Flower believes the experience on the sub-continent like pitches will leave them in good shape to defend their World Twenty20 title they won in the Caribbean in 2010.
"The experience that those guys will have gained in a pressure situation against a very good opposition in these conditions will be absolutely vital to their growth and to our growth as a side," Flower told reporters on Sunday.
Flower stressed his team need to concentrate on the Sri Lanka event. "We have to have, at this stage, an eye on the World Twenty20, which is in six or seven months time and therefore how we play against these spinners in these conditions and how quickly we learn is vital to our chances in Sri Lanka," said Flower. "Most of our Twenty20 matches are now in England, so it will be different cricket and we have to make the most use of this next one which, no doubt, we will be aiming to do. But this experience out here has been great for us."

5 killed, 15 injured in Nowshera blast after ANP rally


NOWSHERA: A blast hit the site where Awami National Party (ANP) was holding a public rally that killed five persons and injured 15 others, including four policemen, our sources reported Monday.

According to police, a remote-controlled bomb that was fixed in a motorcycle hit the ANP rally venue after the public address concluded.

As a result of blast, five persons were killed while 15 others were injured including four policemen. The injured were shifted to District Headquarter Hospital where five are said to be in critical condition.

Approximately three kg of explosives were used in the blast, police said.

Rescue work has kicked off while the area has been cordoned off. 

DPC calls for steps to address grievances of Baloch people


QUETTA: Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) Chairman Maulana Samiul Haq has said that Balochistan will not remain part of Pakistan if practical steps are not taken to address the grievances of the Baloch people.
Addressing a press conference at the Quetta Press Club, he also said that they would wage jihad against America if it tried to intervene in the Balochistan issue.
Other DPC members, including Maulana Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi, Maulana Abdul Haleem, Syed Yousuf Shah and Abdul Qayyum Mirzai were also present. The DPC chief suggested that the people involved in assassination of Nawab Akbar Bugti and other Baloch youth must be brought to justice. "It is high time that practical steps were taken for the safe recovery of Baloch missing persons. This is a serious issue and must be tackled seriously," he said.
Samiul Haq said the purpose of forming the PDC was to take the country out of crises and external threats. "We will raise the issue of Balochistan's grievances and unfair treatment the region received from rulers," he said.
The DPC chairman said Pakistan would not survive without Balochistan. "If Balochistan issue is not addressed immediately then it will not remain a part of Pakistan. The rulers should take the issue seriously because it is the question of Pakistan's survival," he said. "The recovery of bullet-riddled bodies and practices of enforced disappearances have pushed the country on the verge of destruction," he said, adding that this inhuman act must end soon. "We off and on say that using force is not a solution to any problem," Samiul Haq said.
He called upon the government to compensate the families whose relatives had lost their lives in Balochistan and action should be taken against the elements behind killing and dumping of mutilated bodies. Referring to the US resolution on Balochistan, the DPC chairman said that America always protected its interest and could not be a friend of anyone.
