In his latest exclusive interview to BBC, Senior Geo Anchor person Hamid Mir has substantiated PKKH’s findings about his plans to leave Pakistan in an arrangement being made by Asif Zardari on Washington orders. Defiant Mir has yet again blamed an ‘ISI’ within an ‘ISI’, yet again confirming our report which claimed the growing US demands to curb the activities of the Inter Services Intelligence.
PKKH was informed yesterday that Mr. Asif Ali Zardari, former Pakistani president, approached Mr. Mir on the pretense of health inquiry. Through Mr. Zardari, Hamid Mir has been promised extensive foreign media support for campaigning against a particular section of ISI, which the source requested not to make public on the condition of anonymity. In return Mr. Mir along with his family will be whisked out of Pakistan and re settled in West.
Talking to BBC correspondent today , Mr. Mir said that ‘an ISI within an ISI’ is mobilising a mass protest of proscribed outfits to protest in the favour of intelligence agency and raise their voice against him.
Before publishing this report, PKKH reconfirmed whether Mr. Hamid Mir was alluding to the same section within the ISI which PKKH mentioned in its initial report yesterday. The source linked with establishment affirmed PKKH inquiry and asserted that this section is playing a vital role in warding off severe external security threats faced by Pakistan.
The history resounds with the harrowing narratives in which mighty empires were brought down by traitors. An embattled Pakistan confronting the menace of terrorism due to the internal fault lines cannot afford to coddle one at this crucial juncture.

Pakistan’s largest media broadcaster “Geo TV” has itself became a topic of discussion on the rest of the news channels of Pakistan because of the campaign done by Geo TV after an attempted assassination on Hamid Mir, a leading journalist of Pakistan and anchor person of “Capital Talk”, a talk show on Geo TV.
by Atiq Durrani
When the news of the assassination attempt appeared on the news channels all Pakistanis prayed for the life and health of Hamid Mir but things started to change just within the first hour. Amir Mir, younger brother of Hamid Mir, told the GEOtv that Hamid Mir had told him before this incident that if he was attacked the Inter-Services Intelligence Director General Lieutenant General Zaheer-ul-Islam and would be responsible, and that that Hamid Mir had received threats from ISI.
Just after the statement of Amir Mir, GEO started a campaign against ISI and continuously aired the image of Gen Zaheer ul Islam as an accused person in the assassination attempt on Hamid Mir without having any evidence against the chief or ISI.
This action of Geo not only infuriated the people of Pakistan but also surprised the journalists and anchorpersons of the other TV channels in Pakistan. This act of GEO TV was strongly condemned on the social media site by the people of Pakistan. #ShutUpGEO trend was started by social media activists in Pakistan to condemn Geo that was later joined by some of the leading journalists, politicians and intellectuals.
Director General (DG) Inter Services Public Relations ISPR condemned the attack on Hamid Mir in his statement and said that an independent inquiry must immediately be carried out to find out the facts but at the same time stated that the allegations against ISI are baseless and misleading. He added that a legal action will be taken against GEO after evaluating complete situation. Read the rest of this entry »

“Nations are born in the heart of a poet, they prosper and die in the hands of a politician.” Stray Reflections.
Today we, the Pakistani nation, proudly boast of being the nation who was born in the heart of one of the greatest poet of world history. Dr. Allama Iqbal stands tall among the giants who go on living despite of having ceased to exist in the world. Iqbal is one of those people who personify the concept of immortality. After many decades of his death, he still lives in many forms among us; through his written work, his services, and his ideas. He is among those few people who are cherished and owned equally by East and West and his work has been researched and appraised by scholars around the world.
Today I am going to look into one of the many facets, which make him a legend. I want us to remember why we need him now and what he has to offer us in these trying times.
When I started studying AllamaIqbal, the thing that struck me most was the grandeur he attributed to the human being. He exalts the individual whose perfect culmination was in the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
The human being is essentially good and powerful enough to take down anything is his recurring theme. The fact that the person is capable of almost anything is mind blowing. I have always seen how people are treated on different levels in our society so it was very hard for me to imagine the equality suggested by him in his different anecdotes. I was awe-struck when a mere soldier of a Muslim army pledged peace to a deadly enemy [being unaware that he is the one they had to kill]. When his commander came to know about the pledge, he immediately accepted it and forgave the enemy on account of one of his soldiers.
Iqbal states that “man must be regarded as a unit of force, an energy, a will, a germ of infinite power, the gradual unfoldment of which must be the object of all human activity.”… The idea that the human being is endowed with infinite power and he has so many courses open to him, he can take whichever course he likes and make his life, is so empowering and revitalizing. It is a perfect explanation of the phenomenon mentioned in Quran, “And that there is not for man except that [good] for which he strives.” Al-Quran [53:39]
He admits the flaws and limits in the human beings but he insists and proves that despite of these defections the human was sent as a trustee of God and that alone makes him special and trustworthy. There is also a possibility [a strong one] that in the course of his life a man is perfectly capable to get rid of the personality flaws or reduce them to minimum level. Read the rest of this entry »

An important introductory note: This article is a policy analysis document dealing with the US and its allies’ “New World Order” strategic geo-political doctrine. Islamabad would be well-advised to carefully shift its global diplomatic discourse in view of forthcoming international political events and changes that might offer this nation a leading conciliatory role in the Islamic world. But, first and foremost, is the need for the Pakistani foreign policy establishment to fully understand the operating dynamics of the essential factors that will determine the course of US foreign policy in President Obama’s remaining term of office. This writing is essentially an attempt in that direction.
By Dr. Haider Mehdi
“President Barack Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia on (last) Saturday came with a decision to dramatically expand America’s covert programme to assist the Free Syria Army – it remains to be determined what type of weapons will be transferred or whether Washington will accept that Riyadh hand over shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles (to rebels),” reports the press in the Arabian Gulf.
Political observers in Pakistan are speculating that since Riyadh made a massive grant of $3 billion recently to Nawaz Sharif’s government, it might press, and even secretly demand, that the Pakistani government provide the surface-to-air missiles to FSA via Jordan. Indeed, this speculation is not without merit given the history of Pakistan’s diplomatic-military engagements in the Middle East and elsewhere in the past.
Incidentally, the international media has reported that John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, has told the Pakistani Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, that Pakistan’s army is producing more missiles than it needs. Islamabad has to be careful to read in between the lines as to what message is being precisely conveyed. Political analysts in Pakistan, fearful of US soft diplomacy, see an intriguing intervention with the purpose of creating a rift between civil-military leadership in this country, as well as making a case for the transfer of surface-to-air missiles on an urgent basis if Riyadh makes such a demand.
“Kabul has recently seen a continued string of complex attacks, behind which were foreign intelligence agencies,” Karzai told US Secretary of State John Kerry by phone on Saturday night. Take an educated guess of what is being said and who is being blamed for exporting, supporting terrorism and opposing the Afghan peace process. Your guess is as good as mine.
Writing on the issue of Russia’s legitimate annexation of Crimea, Tariq Ali commented in a recent article: “Rape, torture, homeless refugees and tens of thousands of dead was the fate of the Chechens. No problem here for Washington and its EU allies. In the calculus of western interests… Chechens, Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghans, Pakistanis are of little importance. Nonetheless, the contrast between the West’s attitude to the Chechen war and Crimea is startling.” Read the rest of this entry »
