SULTANWAS, Pakistan (AP) — When Pakistan’s army drove the Taliban back from this small northwestern village, it also destroyed much of everything else here.

F-16 fighter jets, military helicopters, tanks and artillery reduced houses, mosques and shops to rubble, strewn with children’s shoes, shattered TV sets and perfume bottles.

Commanders say the force was necessary in an operation they claim killed 80 militants. But returning residents do not believe this: Although a burned-out army tank at the entrance to Sultanwas indicates the Taliban fought back, villagers say most fighters fled into the mountains.

Beyond any doubt is their fury at authorities for wrecking their homes — the sort of backlash the army doesn’t want as it tries to win the support of the people for its month-old offensive against the Taliban in Pakistan’s northwest frontier region near the border with Afghanistan.

“The Taliban never hurt the poor people, but the government has destroyed everything,” Sher Wali Khan told the first reporting team to reach the village of about 1,000 homes.

“They are treating us like the enemy,” he said as he collected shredded copies of a Quran from the ruins of a mosque, one of three that were damaged, possibly beyond repair. Continue reading

A powerful bomb ripped through a police complex in the city of Lahore on Wednesday, claiming at least 30 lives and injuring some 250, the first major attack since Pakistani forces launched an offensive against the Taliban.

A car bomb outside a police emergency call center and the adjoining city police headquarters, at 10:30 a.m. local time, reduced the buildings to rubble. Dozens could yet be found under the debris. The local office of Pakistan’s premier spy agency, Inter-Service Intelligence, located nearby, was also badly damaged.

A month ago, the army started an operation against Islamic extremists in the north west, in the Swat valley and neighboring districts. Commentators had previously expressed surprise that there had been no big reprisal so far. Lahore, the main city of the country’s most populous province and a metropolis regarded as the cultural heart of Pakistan, suffered two terrorists attacks in March, one on a visiting cricket team and another on a police academy.

“I believe that anti-Pakistan elements, who want to destabilize our country and see defeat in Swat, have now turned to our cities,” Interior Minister Rehman Malik told reporters.

KARACHI, Pakistan (AFP) — Shops in Pakistan’s volatile financial hub Karachi closed, witnesses said, after nationalists called a strike to protest the arrival of refugees from the conflict-hit northwest.

The Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM) movement, which promotes the cause of natives of southern Sindh province, opposes the influx of ethnic Pashtuns fleeing a military offensive in three northwest districts.

Pakistan’s security forces are currently locked in battle with Taliban militants in the Swat valley, and more than 1.7 million people have fled the conflict-hit region since the assault began late last month.

“We don’t see it as just an issue of helping the displaced people,” said Abdul Wahid Aresar, who heads the JSQM.

“The motive behind their arrival in the southern-most part of Pakistan from the north is to marginalise the native Sindhis, which we will resist.”

Residents of Karachi said that only a small number of the displaced were arriving in the financial capital, and most were staying with relatives.

Tensions between the Urdu-speaking Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) — a partner in the national government — and Pashtuns from northwest Pakistan who flock to Karachi looking for jobs are traditionally a source of unrest.

Late last month, armed ethnic clashes between Pashtuns and Urdu-speaking groups in Karachi killed at least 34 people.

A leader of the MQM, which has a powerbase in the city, said they did not back the strike action, but voiced concern at the handling of the influx of internally displaced persons (IDPs). Continue reading

May 26 (Bloomberg) — Pakistan appealed for increased international support for more than 2 million people displaced by fighting in the northwestern Swat Valley, as troops tried to clear Taliban insurgents from the region’s biggest city.

Other nations, especially the U.S., should do more to help the relief effort as winning the hearts and minds of affected civilians is essential to combating extremism, state-run media cited Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani as saying yesterday.

Pakistan says it may need $1 billion to rebuild property damaged in the fighting. International donors, including the European Union, Canada, China and Japan last week pledged $224 million, according to the government in Islamabad.

Troops are trying to clear as many as 1,500 Taliban militants from Mingora, the main city in Swat, as the military battles to regain control of the northwestern district. The government offensive began four weeks ago after the Taliban advanced toward Islamabad, flouting a February accord that introduced Islamic law in the northwest in return for peace.

The Obama administration has criticized the accord, saying militants threaten the stability of the nuclear-armed nation and endanger American security.

Gilani met yesterday with U.S. Democratic senators Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Mark Warner or Virginia and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, the official Associated Press of Pakistan reported. They discussed the Swat conflict and U.S. assistance to the nation, APP said.

President Barack Obama has said an aid package to Pakistan worth $1.5 billion a year would be conditional on the government tackling Islamic extremists.

Pakistan’s military said yesterday it secured Swat’s Maalam Jabba ski resort, which militants were using as a training and logistics base.

Security forces say it may take several days to clear Mingora of militants. The military says it has killed about 1,100 insurgents in the Swat, Buner, Lower Dir and Malakand districts since the offensive began. More than 50 soldiers have died, it said. Casualty figures couldn’t be independently verified.

“Dehshat Khan” sitting somewhere in his cave, oiling his guns and listening to ‘FM’ radio. His mind is crystal clear about his deeds and beliefs. No shadow of doubt or an attempt of self analysis ever crosses his mind. His religious thought deeply entwined with his local customs is devoid of sane religious and worldly thought. He acts fearlessly and even, mercilessly.

Captain “Hero Malik” trained in the elite army school, filled with pride and sense of superiority. His organization is the “most honest” and “patriotic” institution of the country. Obeying his superiors is not just his professional etiquette, its his way of life. He never flinches before he acts upon what is ordered. He too, never thinks before and after any command he carries out. The success of mission, his primary goal and the integrity of his deeds, never shaken or even questioned.

Be it Dehshat Khan or Capt. Hero Malik, both seem to be just puppets. With their strings in the hands of a puppeteer. What do we know about their puppet masters, they are behind the scenes. Do they have a same puppet master? Or they have different masters who sometimes shake hands and sometimes just stay aloof. What do we know? We are just watching the puppet show, where Dehshat Khan and Capt. Hero Malik are trying to fight the hell out of each other. Their masters are orchestrating the show perfectly and we, are just watching the show … just watching the show!!!

Shortage of power, rising prices, rising insurgencies, less water for irrigation, a starkly divided society, “friendly” yet hostile neighbours, religious extremism, liberal fascism, terrorist attacks, dwindling economy, subjugation to foreign masters ….. the list goes on.
Should we all seek immigrations to first world destinations? Should we just leave this “mess”? Should we stop thinking and just keep believing the “official truth”? Should we just “talk” about it and forget the next moment? Should we keep living the way we do or try to change ourselves inside out? Should we just forget about it? Should we lose hope?
To walk away is easy, to let go is simple .. the struggle to survive is daunting.
Nobody knows where the destiny will take us? But the question is where are we heading as individuals, as citizens of Pakistan and as Muslims loyal to Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?
Where are we heading???

In just over 100 days, President Obama is on the verge of ensuring that militant Islam?s war on America will be waged for decades to come and its forces will never suffer manpower or money shortages. How did he accomplish so much in some little time? He simply behaved as all U.S. political leaders behave; that is, as an ignorant and arrogant interventionist.

Let us take the ignorant part first. Since Jan. 20, Obama and his band of Israel-Firsters have shown the Muslim world ? moderate, conservative, radical, and fanatic ? that George W. Bush was no one-off fluke, that Democrats intend to wage war on Islam just like the Republicans. How so? Well, look at Obama?s decisions and actions. They can only be explained by accepting that the new president is ignorant of our Islamist foes, either by choice or because the ability to read is not required to graduate at Harvard.

For 13 years, Osama bin Laden, his lieutenants, their allies, and numerous anti-Islamist commentators across the Middle East have patiently, repeatedly, and explicitly explained to the bipartisan U.S. governing elite and its media and academic acolytes that the Islamists attacking America do not give a tinker?s damn about its lifestyle, liberties, freedoms, or elections. Orally and in print, U.S. leaders have been told what motivates the Islamists? war on America is the U.S. government?s foreign policies in the Muslim world. Foremost among these are U.S. support for Muslim tyrannies, the U.S. military?s presence in Muslim lands, and unqualified U.S. support for Israel.

And what have Obama and his advisers done with this excellent intelligence about enemy motivation, which, by the way, comes straight from the horse?s mouth? Well, they clearly ignored it, and by deciding to operate in an intelligence-free environment Obama has acted in a way that will intensify and prolong the Islamists? war against the United States. How so? Continue reading

May 20 (Bloomberg) — Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani called on Islamic scholars to help root out extremism, as security forces waged an urban offensive against Taliban militants in the northwestern Swat Valley.

Terrorists are perverting the teachings of Islam and scholars should speak with one voice against the militants, Gilani said yesterday.

“It is time that they stand united to protect the country from all challenges,” Gilani said at a religious affairs conference in the capital, Islamabad, the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan reported.

Pakistan’s government is trying to build support in the world’s second-most populous Muslim nation for its offensive against Taliban insurgents. The militants reneged on a peace accord and last month advanced on the capital, even after the government agreed to impose Islamic law in Swat and neighboring districts. Continue reading

Swat Taliban spokesman Ali Bakht addresses a press conference – File photo.

THE battle against the Taliban and extremism will decide the fate of democracy and the future history of Pakistan. Although the Taliban are continuing with their bid to push back the army and create rifts among political parties, there are no signs of demoralisation in the army.

Rather its fighting spirit is an inspiration. Even President Obama seems to be satisfied with its performance. In a recent interview with Jon Meacham of the Newsweek he observed that the Pakistan Army has recognised that the threat from extremism is a much more immediate and serious one than that from India that it had traditionally focused on. However, extremism is not spreading its tentacles only in the Swat valley, it has killed a large number of people in Kurram Agency, Dera Ismail Khan, Dera Ghazi Khan and other places. The Taliban and their ilk should be dealt with throughout the country.

Many Taliban defenders have resurfaced with the argument that Pakistan was created in the name of Islam. But can they deny that Jinnah had asked a scheduled caste Hindu Joginder Nath Mandal to be the chairman of the first constituent assembly of Pakistan? Subsequently, he appointed Mandal as the law minister. Open-minded academics are yet to be convinced about how an adherent of the Hindu faith would have helped initially as chairman and later as minister of a law to draft an ‘Islamic’ constitution.
