We will march toward Islamabad says Imran Khan

Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan Sunday gave one month deadline to the government for halting the drone attacks and issued a warning that in case of failure the NATO supply line would be blocked and if the strikes still continued ‘we will march toward Islamabad’, Geo News reported.




Addressing a sit-in being staged against the US predator strikes under the auspices of TI here, Imran Khan exhorted the politicians to shake off ‘hypocrisy’ on the issue of drone attacks. 

“The resolution passed against the drone strikes be implemented,” the TI Chief urged the government.

Imran Khan said a country whose elite class does not give tax can never make progress. “Only the poor are being made to suffer through inflation that is a result of rich being allowed to get away with not paying the tax,” he regretted.

He termed the Chief Justice of Pakistan as the brightest ray of hope for the country.



The TI Chief called for allowing media and human rights organizations to travel inside FATA and asked these organizations to put together an independent fact-finding report on drone attacks.



“Pakistan is brimming over with natural resources which if fully tapped will end our dependence on US aid,” he said, adding, the objective of Tehreek-e-Insaf was to build a strong Pakistan.



He said TI wanted a Pakistan whose passport was looked at with respect in every part of the world.



Imran Khan thanked Javed Hashmi, Marvi Memon, Akhundzada Chattan and other political leaders for attending the sit-in.

Imran announces litigation at international courts against drone attacks


Chairman, Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf, Imran Khan, has announced to adopt a two-way strategy; public pressure within the country, and litigation at international courts of law, to end drone attacks in Pakistan that kill innocent civilians.

Our rulers have sold national sovereignty for the sake of American dollars; he alleged urging the people that it’s high time they take to the streets against this state-sponsored terrorism as the time to act has come. The consensus has been developed against drone attacks since the Raymond Davis issue, he added while addressing a joint press conference at Islamabad Press Club today along with Clive Smith of Reprieve, a charity that provides free legal aid to families of victims of drone attacks in collaboration with Justice Project of Pakistan, headed by renowned lawyer Mirza Shehzad Akbar.

Imran Khan said 90% of the people targeted in drone attacks are innocent civilians, quoting a local Malik from North Waziristan, Gulabat Khan; he said 18 out of every 20 victims of drone attacks are innocent. The bodies of the victims are usually beyond recognition and somehow the victims become suspects after they are dead. The alleged terrorists are innocent until proven guilty. He criticized the government for fixing the match of drone attacks with the US administration and failing to protect the life and property of Pakistani citizens. “Democracy is the best revenge, is a joke to the nation”, he added. He also invited all political parties to his proposed sit-in at Peshawar on 23rd and 24th April against drone attacks saying it’s a national cause and it’s our duty to rise up against naked foreign aggression and our government’s failure to prevent them.

Mr. Khan thanked Mr. Clive Smith of Reprieve and his team for trying to help the victim’s families. Speaking on the occasion, Clive Smith of Reprieve, said that they are meeting affected people and helping them with litigation in the US, UK, Pakistan, and International Courts. Gulabat Khan also spoke briefly saying the continuation of Musharraf policy is disastrous for the tribal people who have always made sacrifices of lives for the defense of Pakistan and liberation of Kashmir. Mr. Shehzad Akbar who recently filed a case against CIA Station Chief, Jonathan Banks on the charges of war crimes, was also present on the occasion, said the US, NATO and Allies can be charged for war crimes in international courts and that political will is needed to expose the War on Terror which has actually become the War of Terror. Haroon Shah (uncle of a detainee in Bagram) was also present on the occasion.

Kate Middleton and Princess Diana - worlds apart


Today when I was looking newspaper I saw this news which capture me. I want to share this news with you and want to know do you also think like that?.


LONDON: From the moment Prince William put his mother's sapphire and diamond ring on Kate Middleton's finger, comparisons between his wife-to-be and the late princess Diana became inevitable.

More than a decade after Diana's death, the "People's Princess" remains adored and the new royal bride will be measured against the young, shy blonde who captivated the world at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

The royals are understandably wary of comparisons between the two women, and William himself insisted soon after the engagement that "no one is trying to fill my mother's shoes".

Diana's marriage was a famously unhappy union which broke down amid infidelity on both sides, ending in a bitter divorce and then tragedy, when the princess died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

It is not a tale to comfort a nervous bride, but fortunately, commentators see more differences than similarities between the two women.

Despite her lack of aristocratic blood, Kate will be far better prepared than Diana ever was for royal life when she walks down the aisle of Westminster Abbey on April 29.

"Kate's been very carefully groomed, it's been a long process over a period of time and she's got people around her who understand the modern media.

"She knows exactly what she's getting," said Max Clifford, a top British PR man who has represented many celebrities.

Kate and William have been together for eight years, whereas Diana was courted for just six months. In fact, Kate has been waiting so long for her boyfriend to pop the question that the press dubbed her "Waity Katy".

But Clifford says the length of time puts their relationship on a strong footing, saying "William seems to be totally in love with her and vice versa".

The young couple have had a very modern courtship.

They lived together while at St Andrews University in Scotland, where they met, and in recent months Kate has stayed with William on the island of Anglesey in Wales, where he works as a helicopter search and rescue pilot.

At the age of 29, Kate also has considerable life experience compared to Diana, who was only 20 on her wedding day, 12 years younger than Charles. Just five months separate Kate and William, who is 28.

Diana had left school before finishing her studies and her work experience was limited to a stint at a nursery.

By contrast, Kate graduated with a degree in art history from a top university, although her jobs as an accessories buyer for a clothing brand and then for her family's party goods firm have been criticised as lightweight.

Kate also had a happier and more stable childhood than Diana, whose parents divorced when she was young. Kate is close to her mother Carole and sister Pippa, her maid of honour, and says her family is a major source of support.

Up to now, William's bride has also had a better relationship with the press, which hounded the late princess right up to the moment of her death.

Despite a rocky start following Kate's move to London after graduation, when photographers mobbed her every time she left the house, warning letters from lawyers and the palace have caused the media to back off.

Kate "is an intelligent girl. She has a good head on her shoulders and is so much older than Diana was and she knows William," said royal historian Hugo Vickers.

The royal family "must be delighted. She's cautious. She's very measured -- confidence is not quite the right word, but she is assured," he added.

Diana was beautiful, charismatic and almost universally loved, but she was also unstable and the explosive fallout of her split with Charles cast a pall over the royal family that is only now starting to lift.

She also overshadowed the other royals, staying firmly in the limelight even after the divorce through her charitable causes.

"Diana became far more popular worldwide than the royal family, and in this country -- she was the one everyone wanted to see, wanted to hear, wanted to be around," said Clifford.

The royals "would have learned from that", he said.

Kate has shown no sign of Diana's love of publicity, although only time will tell how far her careful plans survive the pressure of being a fully paid-up member of the royal family. (AFP)

Pakistan Monument Museum, Islamabad


Set on the top of the Shakar Parian Hills, the Pakistan Monument overlooks the heart of Islamabad in an awe inspiring fashion. The project started by Pervez Musharraf in 2004, aimed to provide the residents of Islamabad with a sight to pay homage to the rich history and to represent development and future progress. The monument completed in 2007 is a structure shaped in four petals, representing united people of Pakistan standing shoulder to shoulder, over the crescent and star, hence protecting the motherland and acting as guarantors of progress.
The place has been recently in the limelight as the Pakistan Monument Museum, which was essentially the part of the original plan, was opened only last month for the general public. With the museum of natural history and heritage already existing in Islamabad, this thematic museum is exclusive in the sense that it is all about pre-partition history, diverse traditions and the different contemporary issues being faced by the country.
Interestingly, when the museum was near completion it was found that displays and mannequins used in the museum were substandard, thus the project was handed over to a team of Lok Virsa headed by Kamran Javed, the new ED. The new team then completed the project in a very short period of time.
The thematic museum is divided into various sections (struggle, realization etc.) of pre-partition history, setup in a chronological order. The museum also hosts now few relics of Iqbal and Jinnah in the two separate rooms, which we believe have been brought on loan from the Wazir Mansion through Quaid-e-Azam Academy and Iqbal Manzil in Sialkot. There is also a library containing rare manuscripts and some popular books published on the subject.
The displays and statues are really fascinating and deserve commendation with the centrepiece being a magnificent buggy with the founder of the nation and Madr-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah. Life size displays of events are extremely fruitful in passing down lessons of history to the newer generation and the Ministry of Culture deserves all out praise for executing the project in the most beautiful manner.
The falsifications of history and myths hagiographed into our books and state narratives have always been a bone of contention. It was thus heart warming to see historical objectivity visible in the displays. Although the first section is titled “Arrival of the Muslims” much like how our history books starts at the year 712 A.D., the first display in the section is that of the Indus valley civilization and Gandhara art clearly expressing that we have a long, illustrious history much before the Arabs came to India. Even a buddha statue finds a place before the much revered heroes like Mohammad bin Qasim and Mahmood Ghaznavi. The War of Independence is described as having been fought by the “Indian people”, the Jinnah-Gandhi talks feature prominently in the displays, the much harkened-about August 11 speech of Jinnah is written at two places in the museum, Gandhi’s “Satyagraha” gets an honourable mention, a plaque commemorating the Indian National Congress calls Chandra Pal, Tilak, Lajpat Rai and Gokhale “great leaders” and Dadabhai Naoroji is called the “first legendary icon of Indians”. Even the wall-map of Pakistan shows Gilgit-Baltistan as a disputed territory along with Kashmir. Such brutally honest objectivity in historical narratives and feelings of pride for common heroes is extremely rare in a country where in the words of one of the greatest historians of Pakistan, K K Aziz, history has been murdered.
In the upper gallery, categories like sports, culture, women development, minorities, music, education, health, and of course the armed forces find space in form of pictorial boards and running video films on the LCDs. The major attractions to watch out in the upper gallery are the musical map and sufi map of Pakistan. It however appears that the floors were handled by different bureaucrats since the one handed out to work on the bottom floor – the historical one – did an awesome job, while the upper floor has it’s share of disappointments (why do the Combined Military Hospitals (CMH) get a separate board?, Is there any reason to include a list of major hospitals in Pakistan? Repeating the age-old sentences on various topics from Pak Studies books?).
Right beside the entrance of the museum there is an Audio/Visual section, which has desktop computers all connected to a local network hosting wide-ranging documentaries from ISPR, popular dramas, old music collection (including Roshan Ara Begum and Begum Akhtar), and rare photographs. There is a small film-screening hall, which has been showing the film ‘Jinnah’ and other films on requests.
Monuments, museums, institutes of artifacts and public exhibits in general are rare in Pakistan. The Pakistan Monument and the associated museum stand out as gems that need to be emulated across the country on various themes and provide the public venues of entertainment, leisure and learning as well. Keeping these gems of public property in their best shape is the public’s job too, but as it so happens there is little ownership of such things in the country. The authorities at this museum have instituted a worthy practice of asking visitors to wear shoe covers so as to keep the museum clean and in a pristine condition. Hopefully, it will remain in the best condition for coming generations to see.
Once again, kudos to everyone involved with the project for making the museum as spectacular as it was possible. For anyone visiting Islamabad, this is an addition to the must-visit list.

Sometimes, children learn their bad habits from parents - Debate of the day

These days older children and teenagers do a lot of things that are not in their best interest. Parents try to figure out someone to blame, yet there are times where the source is a little closer to home. The fact is, if children do see their parents, smoking or drinking or committing acts of violence, that is going to stick. And when the parents try to reprimand their children, they don't come across as that credible. It makes you think twice about what you do in front of your children, doesn't it? You are their role models, they follow your example both for good habits and the bad.

Parents are always the role model to their kids. Every children come to know about their parents first than any other relations,and always living with their parents so they will always observe each and every activity of their parents. Parents have lot of responsibilities in growing up their kids.They must avoid all their bad activities in front of their kids. Kids having a lot of observing power and they will do whatever they saw. Children don't know what is good and what is bad.

As a parent it is our duty to guide our kids in a good manner, so we must avoid all the bad activities like smoking, drinking, blaming others and other unwanted things in front of our kids. Always do a lot of good things in front of your kid. It will make a good impact in their minds and your kid will become a good person in their future. Parents are the real heroes for every kid.

What is your opinion?

What is the best age to get married? - Debate of the day


Is there a particular age at which you'd expect a lady or a man to be married? At what age should you start thinking about marriage? And at what age should you start panicking if you've not yet found the right man? If you say age doesn't matter, what are the things that matter and can they be measured? 


The right age for marriage, I would say, is immediately after mental maturity, which is around the age of 18 for the male and around 16 for the female. Well there is a condition which is the ability to be able to take care of the wife and family financially and morally, but then again we shouldn't forget the issue of education which might arise and conflict with the family needs in the aspect of being there and all that. 



However, I personally think the most important things to achieve before marriage are economic independence and a clear sense of where you are going in life.


I think 24 for a man and 22 for a lady is the best suitable time why?. 


In my country family system is very strong so I see around me so many colleagues and friends of mine who married in the age of 30 or after that but now they all are advising me to not go that far. Some of my colleagues who got married around 22 to 24 they feel much secured than the above one because now when they are 45 and above there are big difference between them in term of their children's. 



30 and above fellow's kids are just 9 to 13 years old and they are in the process of growth but the opponents who married in the age of 24 their kids are now near to enter in the arena of starting their jobs or business means they are entering in the practical life. This means they are ready to support their family financially and also they have much higher chances of success because with the passage of time competition of jobs is more difficult task. 



So with the strong family system values of our society is in favor of those who have more manpower strength which bring more financial freedom for the family. 



Who got married in the age of 24 they also have much more comfort to live their life as per there dreams and they are free to think for themselves too because they have less responsibilities on their shoulder in the age of 45 which is the age of planning after retirement. So they can plan for life after retirement with more positive and energetic way which means they will live for a longer time happily after. 



:D cheers

Can we set a goal for ourselves to protect Nature?


Spring is all around us which brings calmness and inner happiness for us which is our most important need right now. 

I was thinking, "Can we set a goal for ourselves to protect our nature?". 

We plant trees in the spring all over the world but mostly efforts always are sponsored by some kind of organizations or Institutes. There are very little number of those peoples who are self motivated. 

So I am looking for motivational Ideas for the community and especially for youngsters who are in big numbers of the world population to involve them in the activity of protecting our nature by plating trees, flowers and create awareness among them to fall in love with nature. 

Please bring your ideas in this topic so we all can learn together to set an goal for ourselves as well.

Hi Isloo Bhai- You have raised such a nice discussion, no one would dare say s/he does not like this season. When there is green all around, new leaves come out from nowhere and make every thing look so beautiful, snow stops falling but seldom. When birds come out of their hidings and people who live in cold chilly areas begin to breath a little better.happy
For me, I used to go to some hill stations in this season as this was one of the best time to see snow and flowers together. Lots of fun. I enjoyed this to the full. I remember those times when we did have lots of fun in Gulmarg and Khilanmarg in Kashmir.cheering

isloooboy (331) 
Yes this topic is very warm and full of feelings but you gave it real worth by describing the beauty of spring. In my city Islamabad we can smell the fragrance of different flowers in the air without any nose problem and I must admit its feel me like we are getting air from heaven which make me fascinated.

Totally, who doesn't love spring? I love it, is the perfect season with the perfect weather and the perfect moments. With my mom, we have a whole ritual when the spring is close, planting trees, flowers, fruits, vegetables, I love those moments and I love spring.

isloooboy (331) 
Hmmm you welcome spring with real spirit which means plant new trees, flowers, vegetable etc which is the need of today all over the globe. Because we are cutting our Forest which are full of natural resources so we must plant trees as our global mission.



 thatgirl13  
Yep I love spring. It's spring here now and the weather is so warm and nice. Actually I have been waiting for a warm season for a long time now. We had a really nasty winter this year and a lot of snowfall too.
Anyway Spring is here and now slowly we'll be having Cherry Blossom like everywhere. I love it. They look so nice and smell nice too. It looks like cottons on trees. Just so perfectly beautiful thumbup

Fragrance of Spring in The Air's of Islamabad


My Street full of Flowers
Since I know I loved flowers to love, fascinates me, delight me, make me an inexplicable feeling good, having fun. If every day I'd be surrounded only by flowers, I must admit that I am the happiest man in the world, I would not need anything and anyone and more so to me that I disturb the well-one gives them. Besides the fact that I particularly like my roses, I can not think of those flowers that open at nightfall and that often come with competing luxury perfumes. As queen of the night talking or even a flower is the month and the same flower, fully deserves its name, many flowers are star-shaped white, pink, purple or cream, the white flowers are most fragrant of all. If we speak and also other flowers in a way I like it very light and love lilies which are very sensitive. The white ipomoea, a species of morning glory with white blooms only at nightfall and remain open only until the first rays of the sun. 


I just felt the need to talk about flowers is that they matter the situation, give people a way of life smiling. A flower given to him with love, do much in the heart of a man no matter how simple life would be such a gesture. 

Loving flowers, we love more than ourselves ...

Afridi is under attack by Negative Indian Media

Afridi is talking about bias media who don't have heart and try to portray mischief to create controversy to sell a story. Channels like Aaj Talk which Internationally replay edit and enhance clips for their harmful gain. All the Bollywood Actors and Actresses face the same thing especially with the whole Salman Khan Vs Shahrukh Khan Saga like their nothing else is going on important in the World.



Afridi is saying the Truth regarding Indian media. They should grow up and see the positive for change instead of dwelling on unnecessary negative and unhelpful  news for the public. They know how much they affect mindset of the viewer and therefore instigate propaganda of hatred. 

Wake up guy's
