Whereas Pakistan is the next door neighbor of landlocked Afghanistan, which is dependent upon Pakistan land routes and Karachi port for its imports and exports, Pakistan has never tried to exploit its vulnerability or to blackmail it. India, which doesn’t share Read More…

MQM Don(Altaf hussain) sitting in his office in London using his Sofa and a Telephone, asked the local and national leaders of the PPP and the Awami National Party (ANP) to invite Asfandyar Wali and Asif Ali Zardari to Karachi for ameliorating the situation.Chief of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Altaf Hussain on Tuesday appealed Indian leaders to give
asylum to Mohajir community of Sindh.
“MQM is not a political party but a mafia led by Don of Edgeware Road, London. The syndicate is comprised of loafers and criminals and scums of Karachi and Hyderabad .
How do I know?
First let me tell you my background. I am a so-called Mohajir (Urdu speaking, don’t we all speak Urdu in the Land of Pure !). My grandfather in 1947 migrated toKarachi from Bihar , India . My father and I were born inKarachi .
During my college days, against my father’s admonishment, I got associated with MQM. I was young
and foolish. Also, anger played a role. I was angry for I was rejected by Pakistan Air Force despite of my high academic credential and clearing all exams and physicals. Then, I believed I was discriminated
because of my ethnic background. I could be wrong Nevertheless, I joined MQM for I thought that “Mohajir” needed their own constituency to fight for their national rights.
What a disillusionment! After seeing what I saw and experiencing what I experienced, a little over three years later I left Altaf “bhai” and MQM. And yes, I paid a dear price for “deserting” the party and publicly voicing its criminal activities. I was shot at and beaten black and blue. A point came where I had no choice but to leave the town and my family went into hiding. Rest assured, there are many “mohajir” who met the same fate as my family and I did, and then there are those unfortunates who paid the ultimate price for their conscientious awakening.
Briefly, it’s every bit true that extortion (bhatta) is the main mean of raising money for MQM’s activities and Altaf “bhai’s” expenses in London . It takes hundreds of thousands of pounds annually just to maintain the international secretariat and Altaf’s and his family’s living expenses in UK . Ask where the millions came from for Altaf’s wedding and valima in Karachi andLondon ? Prince Charles and Prince Aga Khan’s weddings were sure modest compared to the international extravaganza at the wedding and valima of the whimsical supreme of MQM.
Ask MQM where the money comes to support Altaf’s and his family’s lavish living in London . Altaf once belonged to the lower middle class. He used to ride an old and used motorcycle. And now Altaf and his family in London and Karachi , both places, live a life of luxury.
Surely, all this fund does not come thru voluntarily donations. Every small mohajir businessman inKarachi and Hyderabad , at one time or the other, has faced the MQM bhatta collecting goons. Needless to say what happens if one refuses to oblige.
Ironically, the “mohajir” who MQM claimed to help and rescue are its main victims of terror.
Altaf does not have the personality or character to lead his people and party in a positive way.
Take it from the one who was once somewhat close to the inner circle of the MQM (now remorse and repented), the group, for the greatest part, is a criminal organization. Apart from the euphoria of the initial years, the MQM’s election victory is a result of intimidation and whole scale rigging under the benevolence protection of government agencies.
MQM was General Zia’s brainchild and now General Musharraf’s constituency.
Ask MQM what the slogan, “jo quaid ka ghaddar hain woh maut ka haqdar hain” and “baett jaaoon ya lait jaaoon” (sit down or lie down, meaning, withdraw from election or go to grave) means? How many Quaid kay “ghaddar” became maut kay haqdaar? Were Tariq Azeem and Khalid bin Waleed quaid kay ghaddar?
Who is responsible for the murder of JournalistMohammad Salahuddin, Azim Ahmad Tariq, Salim Malik, KESC Chairman Malik Shahid Hamid, HakimMohammad Saeed and many more innocent men?
No less disturbing is Altaf’s hatred for Pakistan and Quaid-i-Azam. How many times he suggested that the making of Pakistan was a mistake and how often between the lines he said that Pakistan should rejoinIndia . Long live Pakistan,
it will remain on the world map till Qiyamat, Inshallah.
Granted, no political party in Pakistan is wholesome in its character. However, MQM both in its wholeness and in its working, is entirely a terror group and its leader a Mafia Don.
As a “mohajir”, I am ashamed of MQM and Altaf.”
Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, recently said Washington did not want any “permanent” bases in Afghanistan.American and Afghan officials are locked in increasingly acrimonious secret talks about a long-term security agreement which is likely to see US troops, spies and air power based in
the troubled country for decades.
Russia, China and India concerned about ‘strategic partnership’ in which Americans would remain after 2014.Russia has already urged U.S to remove its military bases from Central Asian countries since the military action in Afghanistan is over.but the US secret agenda is to stay in Afghanistan for indefinitely to push forward their real agenda.
Taliban says it proved the “colonialist motives of America” in the ongoing occupation. Zabiullah Mujahid, Taliban leader Mullah Omar’s spokesperson, in an e-mail exchange with Rediff.com, said the Afghan Taliban would never fall into a trap that aims to prolong the United States-led International Security Force’s stay in Afghanistan.U.S. had a three point agenda for the Afghanistan. One, they would use the Afghani against the Iran. Two, they would like to pressurize them to arrange shelter and training camps to the rebels of Shin kiang in Afghanistan. And three, the American wanted to exploit their resources and fourth, construct a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Pakistan through Afghanistan.
Northern Alliance was in fact engaged in training a number of youth for infiltration and carrying out subversion activities in Xinjiang to blame eventually Taliban and Pakistani mujahideen. The training was being provided by the Indian intelligence agency RAW and their Israeli counterpart Mossad. Some Americans posing as foreign journalists tried to convince its head Moulana Sami-ul-Haq, to lend its support to raise his voice against ‘Chinese repression’ in Xinjiang.But all U.S, Israeli and Indian efforts to involve any Islamic group of Pakistan against China so far failed.
There are at least five bases in Afghanistan which are likely candidates to house large contingents of American special forces, intelligence operatives, surveillance equipment and military hardware post-2014. In the heart of one of the most unstable regions in the world and close to the borders of Pakistan, Iran and China, as well as to central Asia and the Persian Gulf, the bases would be rare strategic assets.
News of the US-Afghan talks has sparked deep concern among powers in the region and beyond. Russia and India are understood to have made their concerns about a long-term US presence known to both Washington and Kabul. China, which has pursued a policy of strict non-intervention beyond economic affairs in Afghanistan, has also made its disquiet clear. During a recent visit, senior Pakistani officials were reported to have tried to convince their Afghan counterparts to look to China as a strategic partner, not the US.
American negotiators will arrive later this month in Kabul for a new round of talks. The Afghans rejected the Americans’ first draft of a strategic partnership agreement in its entirety, preferring to draft their own proposal. This was submitted to Washington two weeks ago.
The Afghan Taliban, while rejecting Karzai’s announcement of a Shura (council) for talks, has announced its ten-point agenda:
In his e-mail Zabiullah Mujahid said, “Islami Amarat (the Pakistan Taliban)
itself is striving for peace in Afghanistan. The Taliban considers peace as a basic human right, but the Taliban has objections over this offer, which is a ploy to deviate the world’s attention from Afghanistan where the American-led foreign forces have almost lost their war against the mujahideen.”
- Peace is the cry of the day. Every Afghan citizen wants to live in peace, which is a basic human right. But for the peace process, a viable plan should be adopted. This plan is only profitable for the Americans.
- First, there should be positive steps. The common people must realise that the Afghan environment is turning peaceful. Announcing a Shura list is nothing more than lip service.
- For a peace process such people should be brought forward who were never involved in the killing of innocent Afghanis. Peace-loving people should be included in the Shura; those who never served foreigners interests; and those who are known as righteous amongst the masses.
- 150,000 foreign forces are deployed in Afghanistan. They are killing innocent Afghans on daily basis. The Karzai government seems helpless and cannot make decisions on its own regarding minor issues. So how we can believe in such a big offer from a puppet regime? Could Karzai independently make any decision?
- This announcement from Karzai is nothing else but a ploy to hide the defeat of the Americans. And also to prolong the Afghanistan’s occupation by NATO forces.
- Through this plan Americans want to get the support of the Afghan masses and other nations.
- This announcement is an attempt by the Americans to get the mujahideen to lay down their arms.
- Americans want to deviate attention from the Afghan Taliban’s aim and demand, which is the establishment of a true Islamic Shariah in Afghanistan. The time is near when the Americans would run from the country and the Taliban would emerge as the real Islamic State.
- The Taliban asks when the Americans entered Afghanistan in 2001, why did they not feel the need for a council? Now the announcement of a long list of brokers for talks shows that the foreign forces could not win this war. It is too late now; the Taliban would never become a part of such a plan.
- Finally, Amarat Islami rejects all such offers by the Americans as it is a plan to stay longer in Afghanistan. Their extended stay will prolong the dark period of their occupation, which is full of violence, torture and injustice. So, the mujahideen will continue their jihad until the withdrawal of foreign forces.

Pakistan Turns To China For Naval Base,China ready to operate Gwadar port,Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said on Saturday that China had “acceded to Pakistan’s request to take over operations” of the Gwadar port.
Pakistan is portraying China as a powerful alternative ally and aid source if the U.S. scales down military assistance for Islamabad in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden’s killing.
India worry Pak-China defense tie while stunning News felt as far away as in US.
U.S. and Indian military officials see Gwadar more as part of a so-called “string of pearls” naval strategy, wherein China has also funded construction or upgrades of ports in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Myanmar.
Mr. Mukhtar made the announcement after accompanying Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on a visit to China last week. During that visit, Pakistani officials say, Beijing agreed to expedite delivery of a second batch of 50 jointly developed JF-17 fighter jets to Pakistan, possibly within six months.
China and Pakistan also have discussed plans to build an oil pipeline from Gwadar to northwestern China, and two new stretches of railway extending the Pakistani network to Gwadar at one end, and to the Chinese border at the other.
But Some analysts also say China sees an opportunity in the aftermath of bin Laden’s death and the expected drawdown of U.S. troops in Afghanistan to expand its influence in Pakistan as part of a long-term plan to contain India, open new trade routes, and enable its navy to operate further afield.
- Pakistan Turns To China For Naval Base
|NATO OF THE EAST|
Operation pushes Pakistan closer to forging security ties with China, even India.An unintended consequence of the surgically precise United States military operation that killed Osama bin Laden is that not only Pakistan, but other South and Central Asian countries are looking for ways to protect their sovereignty and security.The implications of the skill and confidence with which the U.S. was able to mount a sixmonth intelligence operation to discover bin Laden’s hideout and then launch a military operation to kill him without the Pakistani government, army or spy agency being any the wiser has caused concern in capitals throughout Asia.There are signs that together with movements already underway as regional governments contemplate what their neighbourhood will look like when the U.S., NATO and other allied forces leave Afghanistan starting this year, the bin Laden operation is accelerating the formation of new alliances.Much of this is under the canopy of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the mutual defence group founded in 2001 by Russia, China and the Central Asian states of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.The SCO has often been called the region’s post-Soviet Union answer to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Certainly major motives in the formation of the group and its growth have been China’s perception that it was being encircled and confined by the U.S., and both Beijing and Moscow’s unhappiness about the spreading presence of American bases and influence in Central Asia.In 2005 both India and Pakistan, along with Iran and Mongolia, joined the SCO with junior “observer” status.But it has been widely signalled that at the upcoming SCO summit to be held in the Kazakhstan capital Astana in mid-June both Pakistan and India will gain full membership of the organization.SCO is purposefully a U.S.free zone. Indeed, Washington’s requests for observer status have been rebuffed.
Pakistan, China premiers meet amid tension with US, “Pakistan will avoid entrapment in either the U.S. or Chinese camp and much of this is about subtle warnings to the United States not to pressure Islamabad too hard,” said Michael Green, a top Asia adviser to former U.S. President George W. Bush’s administration.
“I don’t care if someone is giving us money; we are not a purchasable commodity. We cannot be bought. We can live in hunger, but we won’t compromise our national interests.”– Bashir Bilour, a Pakistani senior minister.
US agenda was potentially pushing Islamabad closer to Beijing.
1. There is no hope for Afghanistan without Pakistan; cut us off and we will cut you off from all logistics coming in and out of Afghanistan.
2. US already favor India, and you must show some modicum of diplomatic, political, and strategic balance.
3. The United States does not respect Pakistan sovereignty and violates both our land borders and our air space at will.
4. Pakistan suffer more from radical Islamic terrorism than do you, and in fact have experienced an upswing in violence because of our decade-long, post–9/11 alliance with you.

Pakistan is rushing to finish weapons-grade nuclear reactor(mailonline) Pakistan controls 70 percent of the supply routes into Afghanistan, according to Pentagon officials.Senator Kerry said: ‘Right now, we have about 100,000 reasons for worrying about our relationship with Pakistan.
With the Obama administration fast approaching a July deadline that mandates troops be withdrawn from Afghanistan, Pakistan is moving into the cross hairs as the next targeted conquest of the “war on terror,” with NATO helicopters launching an attack on a Pakistani military outpost today, triggering a firefight that injured two soldiers, as Pakistan moves closer to China in an effort to avoid geopolitical isolation.
reality it was the US government that refused numerous clear opportunities to kill Bin Laden despite the fact that they knew his precise location over the course of several years.
As Washington increasingly tries to isolate Pakistan following the dubious Bin Laden raid, Islamabad is turning to its old ally for support – China – a partnership that is, “Looking more attractive after the U.S. killing of Osama bin Laden further strained Islamabad’s ties with Washington,” reports the Associated Press.
The NATO attack occurred just hours after Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani arrived in Beijing.
Firedoglake’s David Dayen characterizes the deepening crisis as an “undeclared war” on Pakistan, pointing out that the Obama administration is now looking to “deal its war in Afghanistan for a war in Pakistan.”
Given nuclear-capable Pakistan’s warm relations with China, in addition to its hostility toward fellow member of the nuke club India, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out where all this could lead. Any US conflict with Pakistan could potentially escalate and lead to a major confrontation with China, a scenario that could move the hands of the doomsday clock a few minutes closer to midnight.
US raid that killed Osama bin Laden under its nose, the Pakistan army might be tempted to ratchet up hostility towards India and even encourage the terror proxies it controls to stage strikes on the Indian mainland, the Indian security establishment feels.
There is a view that the Pakistan military may look to recover lost prestige by diverting popular attention towards India and army chief Ashfaq Kiyani’s aggressive response to Indian Army chief V K Singh’s claim that India could stage an Abbottabad-type operation indicates as much. In a statement, the Pakistan army said it would respond strongly to any Indian “misadventure.”
It serves the Pakistan army’s purpose to feed popular paranoia about India and the possibility of Islamabad’s “nuclear jewels” being under threat. A flare up of regional tensions can help turn the spotlight from its failures at a time when US law makers are asking why another dollar should be paid to an ally who might have harboured Osama.
Keeping in mind the unsettled state of affairs in Pakistan with analysts agreeing that India would top the list of Pakistan army and ISI targets, the Indian security establishment is being doubly cautious to ensure that it does not provide any excuse for Pakistan to seize on to up tensions.
The present position of the Pakistan army, the country’s most powerful institution, also rules out possibility of an immediate military coup. As recently as 10 days ago, an assessment here spoke of the growing restlessness in the Pakistan army top brass with the political leadership. There were also inputs indicating ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmad Shuja Pasha may have written directly to prime minister Yousuf Gilani expressing displeasure over some politicians for criticising ISI. “A coup is extremely unlikely in the present situation,” a senior official said.

The “String of Pearls” doctrine encapsulated in a 2006 Strategic Studies Institute report, aims at co-opting, destabilizing and otherwise neutralizing nation states cooperating with China and enabling it to project power and influence along its long and vulnerable oil link to the Middle East. Starting in Africa, throughout the Middle East, into Central Asia and terminating in Southeast Asia, the United States has been conducting a widespread campaign of doing just this.
US agencies confirm presence of Chinese troops along LoC in PoK Despite the strong Chinese denial, Indian authorities have now acquired “independent” confirmation about the increasing presence of Chinese troops along the line of control (LoC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir from none other than US security agencies. Highly placed sources in the government told
TOI on Saturday that US intelligence agencies have confirmed to Indian authorities about the increasing presence of Chinese troops all along the LoC.While Pakistan too has described these reports as baseless, it is now well documented that Chinese troops have been around in PoK since late 2009 when they arrived in the Gilgit-Baltistan area supposedly to rebuild the Karakoram highway. According to Indian agencies though, these troops are no longer restricted to this area and that they are now also present in what Pakistan describes as “Azad Kashmir”.
Pakistan in particular has jointly built a new port with China in the coastal city of Gwadar in the southern province of Balochistan. This port serves as a potential terminal for a north-south transit corridor to transport oil and goods directly into Chinese territory via the northern Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. It also serves the potential to host a Chinese naval presence. The US bid to interfere internally to disrupt this is hardly a conspiracy theory. Globalist scribe Selig Harrison of the Soros funded Center for International Policy has published two pieces regarding the overarching importance of Pakistan in a broader geopolitical context and “suggestions” on how it can be solved.
Harrison’s February 2011 piece, “Free Baluchistan,” in name alone indicates yet another “freedom movement” contrived and fueled to give a favorable outcome to his corporate-financier patrons. He explicitly calls to “aid the 6 million Baluch insurgents fighting for independence from Pakistan in the face of growing ISI repression.” He continues by explaining the various merits of such meddling by stating, “Pakistan has given China a base at Gwadar in the heart of Baluch territory. So an independent Baluchistan would serve U.S. strategic interests in addition to the immediate goal of countering Islamist forces.”
Harrison would follow up his frank call to carve up Pakistan by addressing the issue of Chinese-Pakistani relations in a March 2011 piece unimaginatively titled, “The Chinese Cozy Up to the Pakistanis.” He begins by stating, “China’s expanding reach is a natural and acceptable accompaniment of its growing power—but only up to a point. ” He then reiterates his call for extraterritorial meddling in Pakistan by saying, “to counter what China is doing in Pakistan, the United States should play hardball by supporting the movement for an independent Baluchistan along the Arabian Sea and working with Baluch insurgents to oust the Chinese from their budding naval base at Gwadar. Beijing wants its inroads into Gilgit and Baltistan to be the first step on its way to an Arabian Sea outlet at Gwadar.”
Considering that Baluchi rebels are already being funded and armed to wage war inside of Iran, it is more than likely similar aid is being rendered to them to confront the ISI and Pakistan’s government. This three-pronged attack on Iranian, Pakistani, and Chinese sovereignty in a region where 3 nuclear armed nations converge and billions call home is beyond reckless, providing us further insight into the deranged, degenerate minds behind “global governance.”
Hamid Karzai’s statement that he may switch sides and back the Taliban in the war in Afghanistan has rattled the nerves of the U.S. foreign policy makes from Washington D.C. to Kabul. And while the cost of war has been high thus far, some consider the U.S. position in Afghanistan vital to America’s China strategy.
In order to fence in China’s influence, Afghanistan could be seen as a vital bulwark between a China-Iranian pipeline alliance.The U.S. would have lost a major bulwark in the presumed containment strategy on China. Simultaneously, faith in the U.S. government’s ability to back up its word in war would be undermined, which may suggest to other Asian states, like India and Pakistan, that they seek security backing elsewhere.
