Red Letter Day..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on June 19, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

Victory in the Mother of all matches..!

Yesterday, Allah Blessed Pakistan with a miraculous, resounding and thumping victory over India, at the Oval cricket ground London.

Ultimately, this match turned into a Fakhar Zaman Vs India affair.

18 June, 2017 will always be remembered as a red letter day, in the sporting history of Pakistan.

Heartiest congratulations to the entire Pakistani nation and the cricket lovers all over the world, on Pakistan’s almost one sided victory in the final match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, against defending champions India.

This is not simply a victory of a better team, which pulverised and outplayed the former champions, in every department of the game, with clinical precision.

No one can imagine that a team whose country is continuously fighting deadly war against terror for the last 17 years (which is more than the combined time of 12 years of WW 1 [1914-18] & WW 2 1939-45], a county whose economy has been shattered, a country where no foreign cricket team visited for a series since the year 2009, a country whose team was the lowest ranked in the trophy line up has comprehensively, repeat comprehensively beaten the top ranked world teams of South Africa, Sri Lanka, England and India to emerge as the world champions. This speaks volumes about the sporting talent in Pakistan.

The passion with which our team fielded, bowled and batted in this Champions Trophy final game, was unmatched and reminiscent of the days of creation of Pakistan, during the year of 1947.

The whole nation was united by these Champions Trophy cricket matches, like it was, during the 1965 war, against India.

Nothing unites our nation like sports.

Sports has the power to change Pakistan…it has the power to inspire.
It has the power to unite Pakistani people in a way that little else does.

It speaks to the Pakistani youth in a language they understand.

Sports can create hope for the entire Pakistani nation, where once there was only despair, lawlessness, hunger, poverty, drugs, suicide bombings and alarming increase of suicides, due to the economic hardships.

Sports is more powerful than government in breaking down the menace of terrorism, which can only be cured with the mobilisation of youth and channelising its energies towards positive and healthy activities of sports.

However, it has been observed that for the current and previous governments of Pakistan, sports has never been, even the lowest priority.

Resultantly, It is no secret that how politics coupled with corruption, has spoiled the sports in the country, which has earned the DUBIOUS distinction of the worlds BIGGEST nation, NOT to have earned a single medal in the Olympics, since the year 1994. While, much smaller and poorer countries like Ethiopia, Afghanistan and Kenya, have proved that winning medals at international level is just a matter of commitment, dedication and simple hard work, sans politics.

Now, the time has come to immediately take necessary steps for investment in sports and youth of our country, which can easily catapult Pakistan, as top sports power of the world.

Beware of the mistakes..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on June 18, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

Pakistan must not repeat the following mistakes during the final match on Sunday which it committed on June 4, 2017 CT match played vs India.

1. Inclusion of Wahab Riaz in the team. WR proved most expensive bowler in the history of the CT, by giving 87 runs in 8.4 overs. He gave 11 fours and 2 sixes.
The total number of fours and sixes in the Indian innings were 27 and 10 respectively.

2. Dropping of Junaid Khan who in previous matches always bowled better, against the Indian team.

3. Inclusion in team of Imad Wasim and allowing him to bowl the opening overs was the worst mistake of the match.
Imad Wasim was the most expensive bowler after Wahab Riaz who gave 66 runs in his 9.1 overs @7.20 runs per over without taking any wicket.
Imad Wasim also wasted 5 balls and got out on zero.

4. While the Indians gave us a target which required scoring 6.64 runs per over (at more than 100% strike rate) our top six batsmen (except Shoaib Malik) scored runs at much lower strike rate, detailed as below:

Azhar Ali     50 Runs Strike Rate 76.92
Ahmad S     12 Runs Strike Rate 54.54
Babar A         8 Runs Strike Rate 66.66
M Hafeez    33 Runs Strike Rate 76.74
S Malik      15 Runs Strike Rate 166.66
Sarfaraz      15 Runs Strike Rate 93.75

5. Our team played 115 Dot balls out of 202 balls, which comes to almost 60%.
This means we practically consumed 30 overs as Dot balls, in a 50 overs match.

5. When fast bowlers are dominating over batsmen with their aggressive spells, the captain must think proactively and keep two or even three fielders in the slips. Remember, we missed a catch in second slip of Rohit Sharma at 14 and then he went on to score 91 runs.

6. In the last four overs, we gave a record 72 runs, out of which Imad Wasim bowled 2 overs and gave 44 runs.

7. Not playing a hard hitting batsman and pacer Fahim Ashraf and wrong selection of Imad Wasim against the Indian team, which loves batting against the spinners, was the most expensive mistake of the Pakistani team management.

Wishing best of luck to the Pakistani team at the CT17 final match to be played at the Oval ground of London, on 18 June, 2017.

Recipe for Winning the Final Match vs India of CT17

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on June 16, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

We can beat India only by out of box thinking, ruthless positive approach and aggressive intents, with no place for orthodox or emotional thinking.

1. Sarfraz Ahmad must open with left handed Fakhar Zaman.
2. We must attack in all the three departments of batting, bowling and fielding.
3. We must utilise Ahmad Shahzad as substitute fielder at all times.
4. We must brain wash our fielders that run outs are created; rather than waiting for the opponent batsmen to make mistakes. As such, our fielders should pounce upon and try to run out Indian batsmen on slightest chance of a run out, without any fear of over throws. Hence, all fielders should consider themselves as a member of the bowling unit.
5. We must play first 10 overs with a positive mind and in a very aggressive manner, with 100 runs target in mind.
6. We must not allow run rate to come down due to the fall of wickets, which will, in any case fall, during the innings.
7. Singles are as important as boundaries. Hence, minimise DOT balls.
8. Indian bowler BUMRAH is an expert in Yorkers. We must practice hard for playing Yorkers.
9. For playing the moving ball, watch the ball till the last moment.
10. Keep maximum overs of Amir reserved for bowling at Kohli, who is very uncomfortable playing his bowling, particularly Amir’s over pitch balls.
11. For first 10 overs keep one fielder posted at extra cover or mid off position, on the boundary line.
12. We must try to get the Indians all out by placement of aggressive and smart fielding and in this regard, we should not be afraid of sacrificing few runs for the bigger cause of getting Indian batsmen out.
13. Our fast bowlers must, repeat must, bowl maximum Yorkers, as Junaid Khan splendidly did against the South African batsmen.
14. At the Oval ground the pitch will be 100% perfect for batting, with no help for leg spin wrist bowling. Hence, inclusion of Fahim Ashraf over the leg spinner, should be the logical choice. Otherwise also never forget that the Indians are masters of milking the spinners.
15. Our selection of team should be on the best formula of horses for courses; rather than going on the adage of don’t change the winning combination.
16. The batting order may be shuffled as following, from the squad of 15.
1. Sarfaraz Ahmad
2. Fakhar Zaman
3. Babar Azam
4. Muhammad Hafeez
5. Shoaib Malik
6. Fahim Ashraf
7. Imad Wasim
8. Muhammad Amir
9. Hasan Ali
10. Ruman Raes
11. Junaid Khan

12. Ahmad Shahzad
13. Shadab Khan
14. Haris Suhail
15. Azhar Ali

Charge of the Sarfaraz Brigade..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on June 12, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

Sri Lankan cricket team in its current form is a very tenacious and hard nut to crack.

No team can beat them by giving a target of even 400 runs to chase.

The only way to beat the current Sri Lankan team, is to starve them from scoring runs by bowling Yorkers after Yorkers after Yorkers by our paceman, wicket to wicket bowling by our spinners and an out of this world fielding display by our fielders.

In a nut shell, it means that we should take charge of the game, right from the word go, by an all out attacking plan while bowling, with placing even three slip fielders, as and when required.

Today, since it is a knockout match, we have to think out of the box and adopt the policy of offence is the best defence.

In this regard, we must be aggressive even in our team selection and batting order.

We must include and play Fahim Ashraf and open our innings with Fakhar Zaman and Sarfaraz Ahmad.

Our boys have the potential to not only beat the Sri Lankan team today, but they can beat any team in the semi-final and final matches. The only condition is that the planning of our team management and execution of our captain in the field, must be based on the belief that plans never fail, actually, we fail to plan.

The team management and players must be told that “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and EXPECT to win”.

Finally, our boys under the dynamite leadership of Sarfraz Ahmad, should attack the opponent team, in every department of the game; that history should remember this match as charge of the Sarfaraz brigade, on 12th June, 2017.

How to Win the ICC Champions Trophy 2017?

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on June 8, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

 

MashaAllah great achievement of our team, led by a tiger with his aggressive captaincy, to beat South Africa  the world # 1 ranking team of the ODI.

1. Fahim Ashraf must be considered to be included in the team for next matches, because the difference to the performance of our team was clearly visible, by the carefree batting of just one new comer namely, Fakhr Zaman.

2. Moreover, Azhar Ali is a load on our ODI team combination; and has badly disturbed the balance and performance of our team.

3. Remember, if we have to WIN this tournament, we need more than just ONE aggressive batsmen like Fakhar Zaman; and another aggressive hitter, namely, Fahim Ashraf must be included in the team. Every time rain will NOT come to our rescue.
Moreover, to expect from Fakhr Zaman to fire in every innings, will also not be a wise planning.
InshaAllah, we have to  settle score with India in the final match; and another pinch hitter like Fahim Ashraf, has the ability to destroy the bowling of the opponents.

4. Now, only positive and aggressive thinking, planning and execution can make us the world champions.
As such, after the victory against the world # 1 ranked South African team, we must not look back, as we did in the 1992 ODI World Cup, after defeating the NewZealand’s most favourite team of that time.

In this regard, please note:

a). Yesterday in our match against SA the excellent yorker bowling by our pacers, was a main factor in puzzling and containing the world class SA batsmen, to a very low total of 219.
As such, please give more and more practise to our pacers to bowl even more yorkers in the coming matches, as pitches are perfect and very batsmen friendly.
b). Although, wicket was not taking turn and balls were not spinning a great deal, yet our spinners got more wickets, simply, because they bowled straight and wicket to wicket.
Since, Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Imad Wasim have bowled in a much improved manner; slow and spin bowling spells, Shadab can be rested for SL match and Fahim Ashraf can be included in the team.
c). In the fielding department our teams catching, especially holding the high catches coming at the out field, has shown much improvement. However, throwing from out field to keeper and at stumps, still needs lot of improvement, if we have to become the champion.
As such, more intense practice is needed in these areas as explained above.
Since, research has proved that one bounce throws have more chances of hitting the stumps, for run outs, than the direct aerial throws, our fielders must practice more, hitting the stumps, with one bounce throws.
d). Yesterday, newcomer Fakhar Zaman, gave a lesson to our senior players that how to steal singles while running between the wickets with the speed of a bullet; and also how to convert singles into doubles. If we have to be the world champion, we (all our batsmen) must practice hard to rotate the strike and spread panic into the opponent camp, by snatching singles and doubles, where apparently there was no score.
This will instantly demoralise the opponent fielders and there will be no need for hitting a boundary, on every second ball.

 

e). Last but not the least, captain Sarfaraz Ahmad must promote himself in the batting order.

How to Build Economy of Pakistan Without Loans and Exorbitant Taxation?

If anyone thinks that Pakistan’s economic turnaround can be achieved with the loans and policies of the World Bank, the IMF plus its current team of managers incharge of Pakistan’s economy, then probably, he was not aware of the fact these agencies and people have only one solution in their minds, which consists of three components:

~ Obtaining more and more loans from every possible avenue

~ Increasing number of taxes and their rates

~ Launching amnesty Schemes

As a common sense, giving fresh loans to repay the old loans, is no favour to Pakistan (which was already badly traumatised in every way by continuously fighting War on Terror since the year 2001) from any lending agency.

These loan giving agencies, if they really wanted to help a war ravaged Pakistan, which was fighting their imposed war on terror (WOT), as a front line state of the world, should have given special moratorium on loan instalment payments, for at least a decade to Pakistan. But, as a typical Economy Destroyer Agencies, IMF etc., further trapped a hapless nation, deeper into their debts, with exorbitantly high interest rates.

To further add to the economic problems of the country, the economy management team of Pakistan, kept on increasing the inflation, by enhancing tax/utilities rates and imposing new taxes with every conceivable scheme in their minds.

These merciless tzars, further devised money whitening schemes to make the rich criminals, who built their fortunes by evading taxes, look innocent in the eyes of the law.

Now, our economic malaise has reached such a stage that business as usual, is going to jeopardise our statehood, not in years, but in months.

The degree of the sovereignty of a country, is directly proportional to the state of the economy of that nation. Actually, in constant growth & development lies our salvation.

Moreover, we Pakistanis must know, that without any doubt, the easiest and surest way of moving ahead, is to stand on our own feet.

Foreign expensive loans may keep us afloat, but will never allow us to swim and reach the shores of the economic stability. To seek fresh loans, to repay the old loans, is a sure recipe of disaster for any economy.

According to a research [published by the Guardian dated 14 January, 2017] ( https://www.theguardian.com/global-development-professionals-network/2017/jan/14/aid-in-reverse-how-poor-countries-develop-rich-countries?CMP=share_btn_fb ) of the US-based Global Financial Integrity (GFI) and the Centre for Applied Research at the Norwegian School of Economics for every $1 of aid that developing countries receive, they lose $24 in net outflows. Now, one can easily imagine that if, aid can rip apart the economy of the developing countries in such a rampant manner, how cruelly the loans must be looting and destroying the economy of the loans recipient nations.

Similarly, the above research also exposed the economic crimes of the multinational companies, wherein, they indulged in novel ways of loot and plunder of the developing nations, quoted as below:

Quote.”Multinational companies also steal money from developing countries through “same-invoice faking”, shifting profits illegally between their own subsidiaries by mutually faking trade invoice prices on both sides. For example, a subsidiary in Nigeria might dodge local taxes by shifting money to a related subsidiary in the British Virgin Islands, where the tax rate is effectively zero and where stolen funds can’t be traced.

The above research also states the solution of the economic exploitation of the developing nations quoted as below:

Quote.”Poor countries don’t need charity. They need justice. And justice is not difficult to deliver. We could write off the excess debts of poor countries, freeing them up to spend their money on development instead of interest payments on old loans; we could close down the secrecy jurisdictions, and slap penalties on bankers and accountants who facilitate illicit outflows; and we could impose a global minimum tax on corporate income to eliminate the incentive for corporations to secretly shift their money around the world.” Unquote.

For the policy makers of Pakistan who are convinced that we can not survive without loans from the World Bank and IMF etc., the following extract from Cato Institute Policy Analysis No. 92: The World Bank vs. the World’s Poor
Link:- https://object.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/pubs/pdf/pa092.pdf

Must be an eye opener which clearly states that $1 from the World Bank brings in $4 from the rest of the world.

Quote.
“Has the World Bank helped the Third World? Some countries have benefited, but most of the long-term aid recipients have only ended up with heavy debt loads, swollen public sectors, and overvalued exchange rates. Instead of spurring reform, most aid programs have simply allowed governments to perpetuate their mistakes. As one IMF official described the impact of foreign aid on Zambia, “It is fair to say that what we have done is to allow Zambia to maintain a standard of living for its civil servants [whose payroll amounts to 20 percent of the country’s gross domestic product] which is totally out of sync with the rest of the economy.”[128]
After scores of structural and sector adjustment loans, and after thousands of “reform covenants” in bank project loans, most LDCs still have policies that would qualify them for an economic insane asylum. If the bank has been unable to straighten out Third World economic policies after disbursing over one hundred billion dollars in loans and handouts, what chance is there that increased bank lending will correct these problems in the future?

The World Bank’s activities have been especially harmful because of its indiscriminate use of its “seal of approval.” Barber Conable recently bragged, “Look at the foreign aid program: the World Bank is one of the most cost-effective elements, largely because $1 from the World Bank brings in $4 from the rest of the world.”[129] Conable judged the bank’s cost-effectiveness solely by the amount of resources transferred to Third World governments, with no concern for how those resources are used and abused. The bank routinely exhorts Western banks to continue lending to LDCs even after those countries have effectively defaulted on previous loans.

The World Bank has had a destabilizing influence on the international financial system; it has encouraged huge expansions of doubtful loans, failed to encourage reductions in lending when its research departments should have spotted warning signs, and dogmatically viewed all transfers of resources as inherently beneficial. But the ultimate question is, Are more bad loans good for the world economy?

World Bank loans either go directly to the recipient government or must be guaranteed by the government. Thus, World Bank aid inevitably increases the politicization of Third World economies–even while bank economists lecture on the need for politicians to stop throttling the marketplace. The costs of politicizing aid are far greater than the cost of interest payments on private credit.

The bank claims that it needs to provide more aid to Third World economies to help them grow. But the bank itself is based on an outdated theory of development economics, which assumes that all Third World economies need for growth is to be provided with capital handouts and modern technology.[130] Now that economists are beginning to realize that domestic economic policies are more important for growth than international welfare is, the World Bank no longer has a clear rationale for existing.

Critics assert that adjustment requires austerity and that the developed nations must give LDC governments extra aid to help them adjust. But in most cases what is needed is not belt tightening but simply that governments loosen the noose that is strangling their own economies. It is not belt tightening to allow farmers to receive market value for their crops, thus greatly increasing harvests. It is not belt tightening to stop arbitrarily seizing the assets of private businesses. It is not belt tightening to privatize the operations of state-owned companies that are sinking the government’s budget. It is not belt tightening to reduce tax rates that are so high as to choke off income-generating activity. And it is not belt tightening to remove the pervasive restrictions on foreign investment that characterize almost all the Third World’s troubled debtors.

The case is often made that loans to LDCs should be increased because capital can be used better in the Third World. This advice may be well received in freshman economics classes, but it is unconvincing to anyone who has visited Tanzania. As Harvard demographer Nicholas Eberstadt observed, “The rights to private property, personal liberty, due processes and even to life itself are routinely ignored or violated by the overwhelming majority of sub-Saharan states.”[131] If a government is not trustworthy, how can it expect to be judged creditworthy?

For much of Latin America, the debt crisis would be largely “solved” if the citizens decided that the government could be trusted and called home tens of billions of dollars in “flight capital” that they had placed overseas to avoid expropriation. If a country’s own citizens don’t trust their government, why should the World Bank squander Western tax dollars subsidizing it?

Third World economic development would be aided more by foreign investment than by World Bank welfare. Yet as World Bank aid has increased, more and more countries have created barriers to foreign investment, thereby retarding their own development.

Five World Bank borrowers–Peru, Nicaragua, Syria, Guyana, and Liberia–have effectively defaulted on their bank loans.[132] Yet the bank wants to expand its lending in order to keep a net positive flow of assets to its debtors– to continue giving them $5 so they can repay $3. This may be in the bank’s interest but it benefits no one else.

The bank was created because commercial banks were leery of lending to sovereign governments. In the past 20 years, private lending to sovereign governments has exploded. If the private credit market for sovereign borrowers has any fault, it is that it is too generous to doubtful governments. In almost every case, World Bank loans now go either to countries that squander the money or to countries that could obtain private loans.

What the bank can do that private lenders cannot or will not do is provide money on easy terms to uncreditworthy borrowers. But every bank handout increases a recipient government’s ability to act irresponsibly and sabotage its own economy and reduces its need to rely on private credit markets. As the bank’s report on exchange rates has shown, bank aid boosts a country’s real exchange rate, thus making it less likely that the country will become self-sufficient.

Who benefits now from the World Bank, aside from inept Third World rulers and the bank’s own employees?

A few years ago the bank was considering establishing a commercial affiliate that would borrow in world capital markets and lend to LDCs at a profit. This is a good idea for the bank as a whole. If the bank never gets another dollar from the U.S., West German, or Japanese treasuries, it will still be able to lend over $13 billion a year because of its huge reserves and repayments of previous loans.

The bank should be required to support itself by selling bonds and existing on its own creditworthiness. Once Western governments stopped handing out money to the bank, its obsession with its loan levels would cease, and it could begin to make sound economic judgments. It would no longer have an incentive to back unproductive projects and incorrigible kleptocracies.

Giving countries money that will be badly used is worse than not giving them any money at all. Empowering corrupt and inept politicians to rule over their people has nothing to do with real development.

Perpetual structural adjustment loans for politicians who perpetually maul their economies and impoverish their subjects are an exercise in futility. If real policy reforms are made, people will have genuine incentives to invest or to lend these governments money. And if no real reforms are made, giving them money will only continue to squander capital and postpone the day of reckoning.

The less money the bank has, the more likely it is that its net effect on development will be positive. As long as the bank suffers from its current “have money, must lend” syndrome, it will continue pouring billions into floundering socialist regimes, inefficient government corporations, and harebrained mass migration schemes. A poorer bank would be a wiser bank and a better friend to the Third World.” Unquote.

Since the World Bank and IMF knew very well that their fresh loans to repay old loans will further sink Pakistan economically, but still they wanted to expand their lending in order to keep a net positive flow of assets — they continued giving us $10 so we can repay them $6. This may be in the bank’s interest, but it was deadly poison for Pakistan .

Since, these loans were given to us with deliberate ill intentions, Pakistan must stop repayment of these loans, on the very strong plea of being ODIOUS loans.

Now, the time has come to separate the growth, development, education, eradication of poverty & security of Pakistan, from the politics, forever.

It has been a standard political tactics in the past, to put the blame on previous rulers, by all and sundry, to divert the attention of the masses, from own failures and governance incompetencies.

However, now we must put a full stop to this non-sense, which has wasted the entire past lifetime of Pakistan.

Since, its a matter of impending economic collapse of the country, for which all of us are responsible in one way or the other; we should decide to look forward and forgive and forget each others sins of the past; and take each and every segment and political force of the society in confidence, for a very transparent scheme of our future development.

In this connection, Mr. Steve Maraboli has very appropriately said that “Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You… Be Free… Share.”

Nothing can match the benefits of the collective wisdom. Let us build a new economically strong and politically stable Pakistan, by our collective decisions; knowing very well that no political party, group or institution is so strong, to run this country, single handedly, for a sustainable period, without the help and cooperation of each other.

We must also realise that our personal safety and better future lies in accommodating and cooperating with each other, with the sole aim of building a STRONG Pakistan, under the slogan “Re-born Pakistan”.

In this regard, it is suggested that, we should AIM to bring Pakistan by the year 2035, to the level at which Singapore was in the year 2010 (where country was developed first and politics allowed subsequently, not like Pakistan, where we have put the cart before the horse; and indulging in politics first and development of the country and society is the last priority).

All politics & other considerations should be made subservient to this TARGET for 2035, even if we have to abolish weekly holidays for the next 20 years & reduce our daily sleeping time to 6 hours.

All the stake holders, particularly, from the deprived sections of the society in Pakistan, must immediately come forward, for deciding about the direction of the future of the nation.

Biggest factor in any victory is self-confidence. Anti-thesis of terrorism is education, coupled with economic emancipation.

As such, the nation must embark upon the following agenda, to resurrect our economy without any further loss of time.

1. Request to all foreign donors for a 10 years moratorium, on all debt repayments by Pakistan, which is a frontline state of the world’s war on terror (WOT). Here, don’t forget that the world powers have totally written off loans of many countries, for much less cooperation than Pakistan, which is practically fighting their war, for more than a decade and a half.

2. 20% per annum reduction in all non-developmental government expenditures, plus total freeze in all perks paid from the national exchequer, involving foreign currency.

3. All government servants starting from the President, PM, Judges, military and civil personnel using official cars must use their vehicles for 10 years, before replacing it with new model.

4. Maximum tax rate on each and every type of income in Pakistan should be fixed at 10%. This will not only bring huge revenues to the government, but will also discourage the tax evasion tendencies.
The size of our undocumented economy is almost equal to the yearly budget of Pakistan.
The best way to minimise black money is not the launching of amnesty schemes, because the black money keeps flourishing after taking advantage of such facilities. If we really want to deal with the menace of undocumented economy on a permanent basis, the best way is to either eliminate taxes or reduce the rates of taxes to a minimum level i.e., not more than 10%. This low level of tax rate will not only spur an economic boom, but will also automatically encourage people towards paying the taxes; rather than giving bribes to the government officials, to save them from bigger payments of taxes.

5. Impart training of various modern skills to the country’s huge unskilled manpower for increasing the industrial and agricultural productivity, competitiveness, value addition & exports.

6. Special support and incentives for developing world class facilities for enhancing income from tourism sector, which should encompass religious, medical, educational, hunting, entertainment and traditional tourism, specially keeping in view how rapidly Dubai has become a world tourist destination by juxtaposing technology with innovative ideas.

7. Set a target for 20% per annum increase in foreign remittances, by offering innovative incentives to expatriate Pakistanis, which should even attract foreigners to park their money in Pakistan.

8. Outsource FBR functions (which will alone increase income by Rs.1000 billion) & IMPOSE FLAT 10% tax on ALL & EVERY TYPE OF INCOME (as already mentioned at 4. above), without any exemption (except for the security forces personnel, whose salaries may be doubled with expected receipt of un-precedented increase in revenues). This will not only reduce income tax burden on salaried class (with max. tax rate of 10%. Here don’t forget consultants are already paying 10% tax), but will also result in so much increase in revenues, to the extent that government will not require any tax fresh imposition, in the budget. Plus, the government will be able to give tax free salaries to all the armed forces, rangers, police and other security agencies personnel, who are shedding their blood, in fighting the menace of terrorism, for our and our children’s safe TOMORROW.

9. Pakistan’s Foreign policy is excellent in theory, perhaps the best in the world. However, this policy should be implemented in its true letter and spirit, with core emphasis on PEACE particularly with its neighbours; and Foreign Policy thrust and motto of all our diplomats should be that any and every action in their embassy, must result in the economic benefit of the country. Foreign missions exceeding their allocated targets of investments and remittances should be lavishly rewarded with monetary benefits.

10. Initiate steps (by imposing economic emergency specifically for austerity at every level) to bring each and every economic activity under document.

11. To attract huge world wide foreign exchange deposits from expatriate Pakistanis and foreigners, allow profit rate of 3% PA to be paid on half yearly basis, on Dollar and other specified foreign currency bank accounts in Pakistan. We should not forget that recently Pakistan borrowed at 3% from the IMF and sold Eurobonds at 8.25%.
Moreover, all ELIGIBLE NON-FILERS must not be penalised with any amount of taxation as they are LEGALLY not allowed to file returns as per law.

In this regard, very surprisingly our finance ministry has declared virtually the entire population of the nation as criminals in the eyes of taxation law, because, only just 1.12 million people in Pakistan are tax return filers and over 200 million or 20 crore residents are non filers and subjected to different, unjust and higher rates of taxation at almost every step of daily life, needs immediate reconsideration by the concerned in the government, wherein; crores of ladies, widows and men (above 20 crores to be precise) are wrongly and unlawfully declared as Non-Filers and subjected to unjust taxation.

Firstly, law of the land, allows all those retired persons who after retirement, have submitted three consecutive NIL tax statements, NOT to file any more tax statements. Then how come these persons are considered non-filers.

Secondly, all such type of persons, who are NOT required to lawfully submit Tax returns (like above 60% of the population which hardly earns $2 per day); are considered as illegal NON FILERS; and subjected to cruel and higher taxation rates, applicable to the non filers.

Just imagine, if a writ petition is filed in the public interest, how finance ministry will defend this tax coercion, from almost the 100% population of the country, because only about 11 lac people file tax returns.

Obviously, 100% of the country’s subjects can’t be termed as committing the crime of non-filing of tax returns. Hence, this is a discriminatory and bad law, which needs drastic and immediate review.

Our government can impose tax on its 100% population, but not in an unlawful and discriminatory manner, favouring handful of just 11 lac persons out of above 20 crore people of Pakistan.

#Pakistan should stop repayment of #Odious #IMF Loans ..!

If anyone thinks that Pakistan’s economic turnaround can be achieved with the loans and policies of the World Bank, the IMF plus its current Economy Czars, then probably, he was not aware of the fact these agencies and people have only one solution in their minds which consists of three components of Loan + Tax + Amnesty Schemes.

Now giving loans to repay the loan is no favour to any country, which is badly traumatised in every way by continuously fighting War on Terror (WOT), since the year 2001. These loan giving agencies, if they really wanted to help a war ravaged country, which was fighting the WOT as a front line state of the world, should have given special moratorium for a decade, for Pakistan, in payment of their loan instalments. But, as typical Economic Hit Agencies, further trapped a hapless nation, deeper into their debts.

To further add to the economic problems of the country the economic Czars of Pakistan kept on increasing the inflation by enhancing tax rates and imposing new taxes with every conceivable scheme in their minds These merciless Czars further devised money whitening schemes to make the rich criminals who built their fortunes by evading taxes, look innocent in the eyes of the law.

Now our economic malaise has reached such a stage that business as usual, is going to jeopardise our statehood, not in years, but in months.

The degree of the sovereignty of a country, is directly proportional to the state of the economy of that nation. Actually, in constant growth & development lies our salvation. Moreover, we Pakistanis must know, that without any doubt, the easiest and surest way of moving ahead, is to stand on our own feet. Foreign expensive loans may keep us afloat, but will never allow us to swim and reach the shores of economic stability. To fresh seek loans to repay the old loans is a sure sign of disaster for any economy. Since the World and IMF knew that their fresh loans to repay old loans will further sink Pakistan economically and these loans were given with deliberate ill intentions, Pakistan must stop repayment of these loans on the very strong plea of being ODIOUS loans.

Now, the time has come to separate the growth, development, education, eradication of poverty & security of Pakistan, from the politics, forever.

It has been a good political tactics in the past by all and sundry, particularly by those at the helm of the affairs, to divert the attention of the masses, from the real issues, by mud slinging on politicians, civil and military servants, judges etc. etc. However, now we must put a full stop to this non-sense, which has wasted the entire life of Pakistan.

Since, its a matter of impending economic collapse of the country, for which all of us are responsible and one way or the other, almost no one is exempt from the charge of hurting the cause of the country; we should decide to look forward and forgive and forget each others sins of the past, and take each and every segment and political force of the society in confidence, for a very transparent scheme of our future development. In this connection, Mr. Steve Maraboli has very appropriately said that “Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You… Be Free… Share.”

Nothing can match the benefits of the collective wisdom. Let us build a new economically strong and politically stable Pakistan, by our collective wise decisions; knowing very well that no political party, group or institution is so strong, to run this country single handedly, for a sustainable period, without the help and cooperation of each other. We must also realise that our personal safety and better future lies in accommodating and cooperating with each other, with the sole aim of building a STRONG Pakistan, under the slogan “Re-born Pakistan”.

In this regard, it is suggested that, we should AIM to bring Pakistan by the year 2035, to the level at which Singapore was in the year 2010 (where country was developed first and politics allowed subsequently).

All politics & other considerations should be made subservient to this TARGET for 2035, even if we have to abolish weekly holidays for the next 20 years & reduce our daily sleeping time to 6 hours.

All the stake holders, particularly, from the deprived sections of the society in Pakistan, must immediately come forward, for deciding about the direction of the future of the nation.

Biggest factor in any victory is self-confidence. Anti-thesis of terrorism is education, coupled with economic emancipation.

As such, the nation must embark upon the following agenda, to resurrect our economy without any further loss of time.

1. Request to all foreign donors for a 5 years moratorium, on all debt repayments by Pakistan, which is a frontline state of the world’s war on terror (WOT). Here don’t forget that the world powers have totally written off loans of many countries, for much less cooperation than Pakistan, which is practically fighting their war for more than a decade.

2. 20% per annum reduction in all non-developmental government expenditures, plus total freeze in all perks paid from the national exchequer, involving foreign currency.

3. All government servants starting from the President, PM, Judges, military and civil personnel using official cars must use their vehicles for 10 years, before replacing it with new model.

4. Maximum tax rate on each and every type of income in Pakistan should be fixed at 10%. This will not only bring huge revenues to the government, but will also discourage the tax evasion tendencies.

The size of our undocumented economy is almost equal to the yearly budget of Pakistan.

The best way to minimise black money is not the launching of amnesty schemes, because the black money keeps flourishing after taking advantage of such facilities. If we really want to deal with the menace of undocumented economy on a permanent, the best way is to either eliminate taxes or reduce the rates of taxes to a minimum level i.e., not more than 10%. This low level of tax rate will also automatically encourage people towards paying taxes, rather than paying to the government officials as a bribe, to save them from bigger payments of taxes.

5. Increase in industrial and non-industrial productivity, competitiveness, value addition & exports with the introduction of latest technologies for industry, commerce, agriculture, service and trade sectors.

6. Special support and incentives for developing world facilities for enhancing income from tourism sector, which should encompass religious, medical, educational, hunting and traditional tourism, specially keeping in view how rapidly Dubai has become a world tourist destination by juxtaposing technology with innovative ideas.

7. Set a target for 20% per annum increase in foreign remittances, by offering innovative incentives to expatriate Pakistanis which should even attract foreigners to park their money in Pakistan.

8. Abolish FBR (which will alone increase income by Rs.500 billion) & IMPOSE FLAT 10% tax (already being applied on dividend payments etc) on ALL & EVERY TYPE OF INCOME (as already mentioned at 3. above), without any exemption (except for the security forces personnel, whose salaries may be doubled with expected receipt of un-precedented increase in revenue, due to this formula). This will not only reduce income tax burden on salaried class (with max. tax rate of 10%. Here don’t forget consultants are already paying 10% tax) but will also result in so much increase in revenues, to the extent that government will not require any tax imposition, in the budget. Plus, the government will be able to give tax free salaries to all the armed forces, rangers, police and other security agencies personnel, who are shedding their blood, in fighting the menace of terrorism, for our and our children’s safe TOMORROW.

9. Pakistan’s Foreign policy is excellent in theory, perhaps the best in the world. However, this policy should be implemented in its true letter and spirit with core emphasis on PEACE particularly with its neighbours; and Foreign Policy thrust and motto of all our diplomats should be that any and every action in their embassy, must result in the economic benefit of the country.

10. Initiate steps (by imposing economic emergency specifically for austerity at every level) to bring each and every economic activity under document and start paying 10% tax.

11. To attract huge world wide foreign exchange deposits from expatriate Pakistanis and foreigners, allow profit rate of 3% PA, on Dollar and other specified foreign currency bank accounts in Pakistan. We should not forget that recently Pakistan borrowed at 3% from the IMF and sold Eurobonds at 8.25%.

I am more than confident that by the dint of sheer hard work, sincerity & honesty, which is imbibed in the bones of the Pakistani work force, we can surely bring Pakistan, into the comity of 20 developed nations of the world, in the next 15-20 years.

The leaders of Pakistan holding the destiny of this great nation, with highest manpower potential and material resources in the world, must remember the following two adages.

a. NOT FAILURE BUT SETTING LOW AIM IS A CRIME.

b. IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE IT IS PRECISELY THE UNTHINKABLE WHICH MUST BE THOUGHT.

Minister Tarnishing Pakistan’s Image..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on February 27, 2017 in Corruption, Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

Respected Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Sahab,

AoA.

Sir,

Your kind attention is invited towards the following statement of your cabinet minister, Mr. Riaz Peerzada, who is also looking after the sports matters:

Pakistan’s minister of IPC ministry Mr. Riaz Peerzada talking about the two PSL cricket players, recently caught for the violations of anti corruption laws of the ICC/PCB, has said that why to create so much fuss about a player found out playing just two dot balls for spot fixing. He (Sharjeel Khan) has not committed any MURDER. (Link of his video talk..https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DABQiJn0ku0 )

This also raises question why not to free all criminals from jails, who are not murder convicts.

Now please read below the opinion of the famous and world renowned cricketer Sir Viv Richards on the issue of match fixing:

Vivian Richards writes in his book “VIV RICHARDS” and gives his opinion on match fixing and its punishment at page 219, quoted as below:

Quote. “The problem needs to be taken more seriously and be throughly investigated. Anyone caught and proved beyond doubt to be involved in match-fixing should be given the maximum punishment, both within the game and under the laws of the country in which it happens. In my view, it’s a kind of treason, selling your country out. At one time that would have meant being put in front of a firing squad. How can anyone sell out his or her country for a few bucks? It is beyond my comprehension.” Unquote.

In view of the foregoing and knowing that you have a zero tolerance policy, when it comes to the image, reputation and prestige of Pakistan; and under the circumstances, wherein, your minister has openly compromised the sacred name of the motherland, you are earnestly requested to immediately ask the concerned minister to forthwith submit his resignation, for defaming Pakistan and making our country a laughingstock, which is also a blatant violation of the oath of his office, as well.

An urgent action shall be highly appreciated by the nation and will tremendously enhance your own personal image.

Best Regards,

Syed Nayyar Uddin Ahmad
PS. Kindly advise the concerned to urgently make strict laws for most harsh punishments on the crime of match/spot fixings in all sports in Pakistan.

PSL Final – A Suggestion

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on February 21, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

Dear Mr. Prime Minister

اسلام و علیکم

Sir,

As you know very well, the last few days have been extremely traumatic for the nation, resulting in depressed economic and social activities.

As such, the nation needs a tonic of high voltage cricket entertainment dose, to uplift the dampened spirits of its citizens, not only in Lahore (just for a three hours match), but in all major cities of Pakistan.

In this connection, there is a fervent debate going on in the country, on the pros and cons of playing the final match of the PSL-2, in Lahore.

In this regard, in my humble opinion, if the match is played in Lahore without foreign players or ordinary low profile “D” grade foreign players, it will take the gloss out of the PSL league and subsequently, also de-value the tournament, giving a lot of satisfaction to the inimical forces, who don’t want the cricket to flourish, once again in Pakistan.

As such, if you approve, the PCB may be directed to hold the PSL final in Dubai, with genuine foreign players; and immediately after PSL final in Dubai, a six matches series (with or without foreign players) should be played in Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar, Islamabad, AJK (which has a good stadium) and Lahore; to raise the morale of the nation, which is badly deprived of quality cricket and also suffering from the scourge of terrorism.

The format of the series should be planned in such a manner that for the Karachi match, the Karachi Kings should play with the final winner of PSL in Dubai. However, if Karachi is the final winner of PSL played in Dubai, it should play with the runners up of the final.

The same pattern of format should be used for Quetta, Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore matches, as well.

For the match of the AJK, the Dubai PSL final winner team should play, with a combined team of rest of the four franchises.

The above format is sure to be a big hit with the cricket lovers in each city; and all over Pakistan, by providing a chance of their life time, to the local spectators, to watch their favourite players in action after a long gap of eight years.

This cricket series (may be named as Pakistan Cup) will unite the nation in an unprecedented manner, as all the five franchises of the five cities will get the matches in their cities; plus a big message of solidarity will also go to the entire Kashmiri population, as well.

Best Regards,

Syed Nayyar Uddin Ahmad

An Open Letter to All Pakistanis..!

The President of Pakistan

The Prime Minister of Pakistan
All Parliamentarians of Pakistan
Entire Leadership of Pakistan
All Pakistanis

اسلام و علیکم

Since the last few days, our enemies have launched an unprecedented all out covert war against civil and military personnel and establishments, wherein, the entire country is suffering a bloodbath from East to West and North to South.

In view of the highly volatile situation, it is extremely imperative that Pakistan responds to this emergency in a swift, effective and offensive manner, so that our enemies must know well and truly, that Pakistani nation will extract full price of their mischief against our motherland; else our enemies will have a satisfying feeling that Pakistanis are a sitting duck and they can destroy us with impunity, without any retaliation.

In this regard, kindly peruse the following article submitted to our government on 11 August, 2016 titled “Pakistan’s world war”, which is still very relevant, rather, even more relevant today, in devising the strategy to fight the scourge of terrorism, with proactive internal and external action plans.

PAKISTAN’s WORLD WAR
(11August, 2016)

Now, a time has come that Pakistan can not and must not allow this proxy war imposed by two of its known inimical neighbours namely; Afghanistan and India; to be just a kind of a routine exercise, to wait for the terrorists to attack, as per their will and evil designs; and after that we ask our law enforcing agencies, to go after them and their facilitators, with an iron hand. This sort of mind set will ruin us completely, sooner than later.

Offence is the best defence. Pakistan must inform the United Nations, Afghanistan and India that come what may, Pakistan will launch severe punitive strikes inside Afghanistan, on its terrorists training bases and on the Indian consulates, as well.

We must remember that when it comes to a do or die situation, especially for a nuclear power, then there is no going back.

Precisely, this was the reason that USA was absolutely ready for a nuclear war, when Russia planned to install missiles, in its back yard in Cuba.

Actually, the current strategy of our known enemies, to wage an out-sourced third party war, to disintegrate and degenerate a nuclear Pakistan, suits them as the best option, without any cost to our enemies.

As such, it is high time that our strategy is revamped and rehashed, to let our enemies and the whole world know very clearly that red lines of Pakistan’s conventional and nuclear thresholds have been crossed; and we reserve the right to use any and all weapons, to safeguard our national interests. This means clearly the use of nuclear and all weapons at our disposal, because we can’t sit idle and witness our own demise, without any punishment to the mischief mongers.

In this regard, if the UNO or the world powers wants to take steps to ensure peace on our western borders, we should have no objection, provided all the Indian consulates established, after the NATO invasion of Afghanistan, are permanently shut down, just as Russia accepted American demands, during the Cuban crisis. (In fact, before the start of the NATO invasion of Afghanistan the USA had accepted this Pakistani condition that India will have no role in this Afghan war on terror).

So, for a nuclear Pakistan, enough is enough. We must not forget that any all-out nuclear war between India and Pakistan, will not only be a complete annihilation of both the countries, but it will be an Armageddon, for the entire planet, as well.

As the matter is extremely grave and fraught with dangerous consequences, we must prove beforehand to the world the Indo-Afghan nexus against Pakistan, with factual statements of American leaders and scholars and other related water tight evidences and documents.

In this regard, besides the other evidences like the video of Indian NSA Ajit Doval, wherein, he is talking in detail, about his defensive offensive strategy and removing thorn with a thorn; the following must be used as a proof of the Indo-Afghan designs against Pakistan:

– In 2008, the Indian naval chief, Admiral Suresh Mehta, expressed concerns over the development of Gwadar port and had said, “Being only 180 nautical miles from the exit of the Straits of Hormuz, Gwadar, being built in Balochistan coast, would enable Pakistan to take control over the world energy jugular and interdiction of Indian tankers.”

– Senator Chuck Hagel, who later became US Secretary of Defence, earlier commented on India’s role in Afghanistan, during a speech at the Cameron University in Oklahoma in 2011, quoted as below: Quote “India has over the years financed problems for Pakistan from across the border in Afghanistan.” In his talk on Afghanistan, Mr Hagel reportedly said that India had been using Afghanistan as a second front against Pakistan. “India has over the years financed problems for Pakistan on that side of the border, and you can carry that into many dimensions.” He noted that India took advantage of tensions between Kabul and Islamabad for fomenting troubles in the areas that border Afghanistan.“ The point being [that] the tense, fragmented relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan has been there for many, many years,” he said.

– Mr Hagel is not the only American to suggest that India has been using Afghanistan for stirring troubles in Pakistan. C. Christine Fair, an assistant professor at Georgetown University, made similar suggestion during a congressional hearing on Afghanistan in 2011.

– In June 2015 the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Bangladesh said “heard what my ears would never want to hear again – Narendra Modi’s acceptance of India’s lethal plan in the disintegration of East Pakistan in 1971, and its threat to destabilise Pakistan through terrorism.” His statement also proved that the specific aim of creating RAW in 1968 was to subvert the people of former East Pakistan and prepare grounds for the creation of Bangladesh for the training of over one million Mukti Bahini.

– The following text of India-Pakistan joint statement in Sharm-el-Sheikh between Manmohan Singh and Pakistan PM Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on July 16, 2009 clearly proves that Indian hand in creating mischief in Balouchistan was exposed right on the face of the Indian PM:
Quote.”Prime Minister Gilani mentioned that Pakistan has some information on threats in Baluchistan and other areas.”Unquote.

– The following news titled “Capture of spy proves India’s interference in Pakistan: army” reported by the daily Dawn on 30 March, 2016 (Link:- http://www.dawn.com/news/1248776/capture-of-spy-proves-indias-interference-in-pakistan-army) leaves no doubt of active Indian sabotage and killings in Pakistan, which clearly tantamount to waging undeclared war by India against Pakistan:

News:

The army has said that the capture of an Indian spy in Balochistan is a proof of India’s interference in Pakistan. “This is no less than the state-sponsored terrorism,” military spokesman Lt Gen Asim Bajwa said on Tuesday while releasing a six-minute video of confessional statement given by the spy, who identified himself as Kulbhushan Yadav and said he had been operating under the cover name of Hussain Mubarik Patel. The military spokesman said that Yadav would be prosecuted as per the law of land. Responding to a question about granting consular access to him as sought by the Indian government, Gen Bajwa said he was caught red-handed while planning subversive activity in Pakistan and a decision in this regard would be taken later. “We’ll cross the bridge when we come to it. There are lots of technicalities involved in it,” he said. He said it was a rare incident for a serving military officer to have been caught in another country. In his statement, Yadav said that he was a resident of Mumbai, where he was commissioned in January 1991, and belonged to Indian Navy’s engineering cadre. He said he held the rank of commander and his service number was 41558Z. He detailed how he entered the intelligence world and joined RAW in 2013 after which he was assigned the task of promoting unrest in Balochistan and Karachi. He had previously visited Karachi undetected in 2003 and 2004 from Chabahar (Iran), where he had established his jewellery business to conceal his activities. He disclosed that he worked with Baloch student organisations and other insurgents for carrying out his activities. He said Anil Kumar Gupta, a RAW officer of the rank of joint secretary, was his supervisor. Yadav said he was arrested on March 3, 2016, and was voluntarily giving the statement and cooperating with his investigators. Gen Bajwa said the primary task given to Yadav was to revive the dying Balochistan insurgency and sabotage China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Yadav, he said, was planning to attack the Gwadar Hotel where Chinese were staying and where there was presence of a sectarian organisation. The spokesman said they had planned to bring in 30-40 trained RAW operatives to coordinate and help in reviving the Baloch insurgency.

The world now must be informed that Pakistan is not in an ordinary war, rather, for us it is our world war, which is being fought for the life and death of Pakistan. Already Pakistan has suffered casualties of nearly 80,000 civilian and military personnel and about a trillion dollar economic loss. This type of war has not been witnessed by any other nation, in the history of the world.

Moreover, it seems that this fight may not end very soon, in the near future. As such, our civil, military and all non military people, will have to stand united in front of the terrorists, who are hell bent to fight this war, not in our back yard, but right in the middle of our homeland.

In any crime investigations, the first logical step is to find the beneficiary of that criminal act. Here, in Pakistan we have observed a pattern, which reveals that either, the terrorists have been targeting the GHQ, Naval and Air Force bases or indulging in specific targeted attacks on Sri Lankan cricketers, Chinese nationals and other foreigners, soft targets like pilgrims at far off places shrines, intelligentsia, polio workers, hospitals, educational institutions, busy markets, protestors on roads, tourists and Pakistani minorities.

All these operations are carried out (at specifically chosen vital timings) not only to inflict maximum men and material losses, but also to undermine Pakistan’s military power, sabotage CPEC, create isolation in foreign policy and inflict maximum damage on economy, sports and tourism etc.

We should not be so naive to indefinitely close our eyes and ignore the role of presence of Indian consulates, specially based near the Pakistan’s western borders with Afghanistan.

In fact, the terrorism in Karachi and the insurgencies of Swat and Balouchistan are a clear testimony of the Indian evil designs, being perpetrated through these consulates in Afghanistan.

However, Pakistan must clearly know that this Indian game plan, specifically designed to keep Pakistan bleeding for an indefinite period, will never cease, till such time we repay the Indians in the same coins, by devising a strategy, to fight fire with fire.

Therefore, it is high time that Pakistan officially warn India to immediately pack up all its consulates in Afghanistan, failing which we should also immediately take steps to establish our own consulates, in the border areas of all those countries, which share a common border with India.

The recent sudden increase of acts of terrorism, also highlights the importance of preventive measures to curb this menace, which is causing severe losses of innocent lives, material and reputation of the country.

In the cases of previous terrorist attacks on the GHQ, PIDC house & Pakistan Navy air base and other such incidents, it was reported that the gang of attackers were residing in rented houses for quite some time, in an area not very far away from their targets. It was also reported that the neighbours of these houses were although, suspicious of these tenants, yet, they kept quiet and did not tip area police, about their apprehensions.

Under the circumstances, there is a dire need for motivating general public, which must remain extra-vigilant, in playing their role of defending the motherland, by involvement of entire population of the country, to look out in their near vicinity, for the stay and suspicious activities of the terrorist.

As such, In order to make the stay of the terrorists at any such places, almost impossible; it is proposed to actively involve the entire population, to look out & hunt them.

This objective can be easily achieved, by the announcement of the government, that a reward of Rs. 100 millions or Rupees ten crores, shall be paid to any person, who informs the Police, about the terrorist(s) staying in a house, hostel, hotel, rest house etc.

If our war against terror and for our survival is to be won quickly, the entire population of the country, shall have to be geared up and involved in the task of watch and vigilance.

Last but not the least, as is done in many countries, compulsory three years military service law, must be enacted for entire Pakistani citizens, without any discrimination of rich and poor. Besides many other benefits, it will help produce a new generation of disciplined and physically fit Pakistanis.

Best Regards,

Syed Nayyar Uddin Ahmad
