Who are Farhan Idrees and Usman Rasheed of Sialkot

These two Monsters “Farhan Idrees” and “Usman Rasheed” are the main culprits among all those 50+ people present there. Only arresting and putting them in jail is not enough. The harshest punishment should be meted out from them. Farhan Idrees the main culprit in Sialkot incident has been arrested Plus more than hundred other accused also arrested in less than 24 hrs.

This is Islamic republic of Pakistan. Horrific & condemnable act of the mob attack on factory & murder of Sri Lankan manager in Sialkot. Mob violence cannot be acceptable under any circumstance as state has laws to deal with all offences. Who are Farhan Idrees and Usman Rasheed of Sialkot?  They are just small time minions of Sialkot who settled a score.

In the Sialkot incident, police have arrested Farhan Idrees, one of the main accused involved in torture and incitement. More than 100 people have been arrested. IG Punjab is supervising the whole matter. This is main culprit Farhan Idrees who initiated mobs to kill Sri Lankan describing sacrilege of purported sticker containing “Ya Husain”. Saddened and heartbroken. Can’t believe we are surrounded by individuals like Zahir Jaffer and Farhan Idrees. A state of lawlessness.

Sri Lankan executive at garment factory lynched & burnt by angry supporters of hardline Islamist party which attacked the facility in Pakistan’s Punjab over blasphemy allegations. Those shedding crocodile tears over Sialkot mob lynching incident should hang their heads in shame. They used street chaos to oust a govt, and are now witnessing sanity being ousted from the country by mob rule. This is just the tip. The iceberg follows.

The horrific mob lynching of the Sri Lankan manager of a sports factory in Sialkot shows the worrying extent to which extremism has spread in our society. Sri Lanka has its own set of radicals who are targeting Muslims. By lynching a Sri Lankan man, Muslim radicals have created space for non-Muslim radicals in Sri Lanka to target Muslims. This is how radicalism feeds off itself, fueling violence and hate across the world.

The savagery with which a Sialkot mob has tortured a Sri Lankan man to death on flimsy allegations of blasphemy should bring home the grim reality of spiralling radicalisation in Pakistan. It’s a time of shame for the country and we know who is responsible.



ILR Card for Pakistani Passport Holders Issues

ILR stands for Indefinite Leave to Remain. ILR is used in United Kingdom. ILR is an immigration status which allows the person who holds it to live and work in the UK for an unlimited time, without any need to apply for a visa extension.

Pakistanis are raising quite a lot of issues with UK home office and Pakistani officials about ILR. My husband with UK ILR Pakistani passport bought twice a ticket back to be with his kids in UK and twice his ticket got wasted because the staff Jinnah International Airport Karachi Airport kept asking a ILR card which never was provided as the proof online. The situation is quite grave and anxiety inducing.

He logged in on the UK home office website showing them everything but they didn’t let him board twice isn’t this ridiculous and total inhuman of the staff. He went for a two week holiday and had to go back to work from today 18/10 now because of the staff at Jinnah international airport Karachi airport his job is at stake. He works in the UK has a ILR and owns a house in the United Kingdom.

Please guide us as we are in enormous distress. How many more ticket would we need to buy and will go in the bin and for how long more will they keep father of 3small children’s away from them.Only because you don’t issue any card and they don’t trust the proof online. Kindly have mercy upon my small family and help us out. Staff at Karachi Airport is totally inhuman and not educated about travelers their documents nothing they are their to bully people.

This is so disappointing and ridiculous. I hope you get to see your husband soon. Praying for you and your family. What do you do if your airline staff at Pakistani airports doesn’t let the passenger fly to his home in uk only because they are too incompetent to recognise the legal and required ILR documents?


What is Pandora Papers List of Pakistanis Latest

Updated and latest list of Pakistanis in Pandora Papers is here and this will be updated daily on regular basis. What is Pandora Papers in Pakistan and what ICIJ and Umar Cheema has done this time. How Pandora Papers is different from Panama Papers.

Panama Papers were released on 3rd (April), Sunday – 2 years before the term end of PM Nawaz Sharif. Pandora Papers will also be released on 3rd (October), Sunday – 2 years before the term end of Imran Khan Niazi. To all those who said Imran Khan himself is emaandaar, you got 24hrs to celebrate his emaandari. This new investigation is our most expansive exposé of financial secrecy yet. Coming tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. EDT, 4:30 p.m. GMT., it features reporting from more than 600 journalists from 150 media outlets in 117 countries across the globe. Do they also ever research on military generals and include their names also or such releases are only for democratic actors in the weaker world?

For us in Pakistan it is just a matter of game. the journalist Umar Cheema, who was part of #PanamaPapers was later on depending the same accused ruling family of Nawaz Sharif and even didn’t present anything solid in Court. Now he is saying same thing about Imran Khan offshore company in Pandora Papers. That sounds like an actual Justice league. I’m looking forward to it. I predict this will be a big fanfare with shock headlines but very little actual substance. Panama Papers had so little wrongdoing.

Imran khan Pakistan 3 years
– 60% debt up
– 45% currency down
– Food prices 100% up
– Inflation more than 95% of countries
– GDP growth lowest in world
– Corruption up Transparency International
– Corruption scandals in food supplies
– Medicine prices 400% increased

Now we have this Pandora Papers. The issue is how to trust the data shared in upcoming report. The 2 Pakistani journalists are openly work for Geo/Jang media group which is front of supporting and protecting the openly known corrupt politician and mafias. If ICIJ cannot see the corruption background of it’s own. It’s high time to do an exposé about true enablers of dirty money like regulators and politicians in the EU, UK and Switzerland. Those who are paid directly to protect I’ll-gotten gains. Folks it seems this will be better than ‘Panama’..Name says it all ‘Pandora’ with UAE skyline. Can’t wait for it to come out. Hope the papers will be properly analyzed n then discussed.


Prize Bond Guess Paper Prime Photo State

Prize Bonds: How the math works is explained below. Prize Bond Guess Paper Prime Photo State scenarios are also discussed.

This is a very popular financial instrument built to leverage willingness of people to take a ‘chance’. It’s probabilities at play. Through prize bonds, the gov. raises debt & instead of paying interest to everyone, it pays a jackpot to a few. There is a 0.0002% chance to win the first prize in a year, and that is still better than the probability of dying in a plane crash (c. 0.0001%), so those who are afraid of flying, there are higher chances of you winning the jackpot, than dying in a plane crash. Imagine that.

Now lets look at the PKR 750 prize bond. The first prize is PKR 1.5 million, the second prize is PKR 500k (there can be 3 winners for the second prize), and the third prize is PKR 9,300 (there can be 1,696 winners for the third prize. The government gives out the following ‘winnings’ at every prize bond draw of PKR 750 bond.

First Prize: PKR 1.5m * 1 = PKR 1.5m
Second Prize: PKR 500k * 3 = PKR 1.5m
Third Prize: PKR 9,300 * 1,696 = PKR 15.772m

Total winnings distributed by the government: PKR 18,772,800

There are four draws in a year, so total ‘winnings’ distributed by the government in on full year is: PKR 18.77m * 4 = PKR 75.09m

So we now know that every year, Government pays out PKR 75.09m on a single series of a PKR 750 prize bond.

Now how many prize bonds of PKR 750 are in issuance? One ‘series’ has 999,999 bonds — which means that 999,999 bonds with value of PKR 750 each were sold by the government to raise PKR 749.99m (PKR 750 * 999,999).

So the amount raised by Government is PKR 749,999,250.

The winnings distributed is PKR 75,091,200. So the ‘cost of debt’ for the government is around 10.01% in the case of prize bonds. The current rate on Behbood Savings Certificates is around the same. In-effect, the cost of prize bonds is largely with long term GoP debt. As an investor, you can either invest in long term GoP bonds and get a sure shot return per annum, or you can try your luck and get a prize bond, with a probability of 0.68% of winning anything (even the smallest prize) in one year. There may be years when you don’t win anything, and then there might be a fluke year where you win the jackpot!

Bonus: You can also teach kids how money laundering works.

P.S. Some numbers may be slightly off, but song remains the same.


Crypto in Urdu for Pakistanis Updated for 2021 2022

کرپٹو کرنسی بنیادی طور پر ایک ڈیجیٹل کرنسی ہے جسے تبادلے کے ایک ذریعہ کے طور پر استعمال کیا جا سکتا ہے – اسے نقد کی ڈیجیٹل شکل سمجھیں۔ فیاٹ کرنسی کے برعکس ، کرپٹو کرنسی کو ابھی تک کسی مرکزی اتھارٹی نے کنٹرول نہیں کیا ہے۔ کریپٹو کرنسی کے ساتھ ، تمام لین دین کو ایک وکندریقرت عوامی تقسیم شدہ ڈیجیٹل لیجر میں محفوظ کیا جاتا ہے جسے اس کے پاس موجود ہر شخص رسائی حاصل کرسکتا ہے۔

حفاظت کو یقینی بنانے کے لیے ، لین دین کو خفیہ نگاری کے ذریعے محفوظ کیا جاتا ہے ، کوڈز کے استعمال کے ذریعے معلومات اور مواصلات کی حفاظت کا ایک طریقہ۔ لہذا ، اگرچہ نیٹ ورک سے جڑا ہوا کوئی بھی شخص ٹرانزیکشن کی سرگرمیوں اور بیلنس کو لیجر میں دیکھ سکے گا ، لیکن لین دین کے لیے نام اور پتے کوڈ کی شکل میں ہیں۔

یہ بلاک چین ٹیکنالوجی کے طور پر جانا جاتا ہے ، جہاں افراد مرکزی کلیئرنگ اتھارٹی کی ضرورت کے بغیر لین دین کی تصدیق کر سکتے ہیں۔ اس کے بعد یہ لین دین کے زیادہ شفاف ، بغیر اجازت اور ناقابل اعتماد طریقہ کی اجازت دیتا ہے ، اور کم قیمت پر بھی کیونکہ وہاں کوئی مڈل مین شامل نہیں ہے۔

واضح تصویر حاصل کرنے کے لیے یہاں ایک مثال ہے:

فرض کریں کہ سیلی نے باب کو 1 بٹ کوائن بھیجا۔ اس ٹرانزیکشن کو پھر ایک پیر ٹو پیر نیٹ ورک پر نشر کیا جائے گا جس میں نوڈس کے نام سے جانا جاتا کمپیوٹر شامل ہے۔ نوڈس کا نیٹ ورک الگورتھم کا استعمال کرتے ہوئے لین دین کی درخواست اور سیلی کی حیثیت کی توثیق کرتا ہے۔ ایک بار تصدیق ہونے کے بعد ، لین دین کو بٹ کوائن لیجر میں دیگر لین دین کے ساتھ ملا کر ڈیٹا کا ایک نیا بلاک تشکیل دیا جاتا ہے جو موجودہ بلاکچین میں اس طرح شامل کیا جائے گا جو ناقابل تغیر ہے۔ اس سے کسی کو بھی لین دین کے ڈیجیٹل لیجر ویزبیلیٹی تک رسائی حاصل ہو گی۔

روایتی بینکاری نظام میں ، دوسری طرف ، بینک اپنے لیجر کا انتظام کرتا ہے اور سسٹم کے مرکزی کمپیوٹر میں محفوظ ہوتا ہے۔ اس کا مطلب یہ ہوگا کہ صرف بینکوں کا اس لیجر پر کنٹرول ہے۔ cryptocurrency کے ساتھ ، یہ لیجر شفاف ہے۔

بٹ کوائن 2008 میں تخلص ستوشی ناکاموٹو کے ذریعہ تخلیق ہونے والی پہلی کرپٹو کرنسی ہے۔ تاہم ، یہ واحد نہیں ہے۔

بٹ کوائن کے بعد بنائی گئی کرنسیوں کو اجتماعی طور پر الٹ کوائنز کہا جاتا ہے ، جو کہ بٹ کوائن کی طرح – ایک وکندریقرت پیر ٹو پیر نیٹ ورک پر بنے ہیں۔ اپریل 2021 تک ، مارکیٹ میں 10،000 سے زیادہ کرپٹو کرنسی دستیاب ہیں ، حالانکہ ان میں سے بہت سے کا کوئی تجارتی حجم یا پیروی نہیں ہے۔

مارکیٹ کے جذبات میں غیر متوقع تبدیلیوں کی وجہ سے کرپٹو کرنسی ان کے اتار چڑھاؤ کے لیے جانا جاتا ہے جو قیمتوں میں تیز اور اچانک حرکت کا باعث بن سکتا ہے۔ یہ وہ جگہ ہے جہاں مستحکم سکے آتے ہیں۔

اگر آپ کرپٹو کرنسیوں میں سرمایہ کاری کرنے کے بارے میں یقین نہیں رکھتے ہیں تو ، یہ بہت آسان ہے۔ اسی طرح جیسے لوگ مارکیٹ میں اسٹاک خریدتے اور تجارت کرتے ہیں ، آپ کرپٹو کرنسی خرید سکتے ہیں اور وقت کے ساتھ ساتھ قیمت بڑھنے پر اسے بیچ سکتے ہیں۔ تاہم ، جب کریپٹو کرنسیوں میں سرمایہ کاری کی بات آتی ہے تو ، یہ سمجھنا ضروری ہے کہ چونکہ ان کا معاشی اعداد و شمار سے نسبتا low کم تعلق ہے ، اس لیے تکنیکی تجزیہ کرنا اور کرپٹو نیوز کو سمجھنا ضروری ہے۔


Poor Plight of Juvenile Section in Pakistani Jails

Yesterday, I visited Adiala Jail, Juvenile section. I was heart broken to see poor small kids who have been languishing in jails since months only because they neither have legal representation nor resources to submit surety bond in the court for their bail.

However, under Juvenile Justice system act 2018, court has the power to release juveniles without surety bound but hardly any judge prefer this practice. In addition to this, state is responsible to provide legal representation to a juvenile but as usual state has become a habitual absconder especially when it comes to the rights of vulnerable and oppressed people of this country. They might have committed the crime but they are still humans and still our future.

The more you know and observe the criminal justice system, the more you realize that the irreparable damage could only be undone by overhauling and complete restructuring of this system. This country is only for elite club. Rest of the people in this country are insects. It breaks my heart into thousands of pieces and really melts to know that how much talent we have been wasting in our juvie jails as this grows more.

I urge the federal and provincial governments to look into this and make sure that this get’s resolved in a proper way. I am not sure why no one really is interested in making this better because these kids have still a long way to go and we can improve their lives and future. Why cannot we teach them some skills and why cannot we give them in the foster care. We can also try to engage the NGOs and other private sectors to help out.

We must act now before it’s too late and a whole generation is lost.



Immunization Certificate for Covid-19 NADRA

The process of obtaining immunization certificate for Covid-19 NADRA in Pakistan is easy and the processing fee is Rs. 160. The time frame is also very quick and you can obtain that online or from any branch of NADRA.

Why isn’t downloading the covid vaccination certificate free? I don’t know what world people in the replies live in, first of all, in a country where people regularly get paid below the minimum wage, something as basic as a vaccine certificate should be free of charge esp if the government plans to make it a pre-req to basic services.

Secondly those saying I’m some lazy fuck who can’t download a certificate. First of all, this isn’t about me. And even if it were I don’t have a credit card because my bank thinks an unmarried woman makes me a credit risk. I can borrow a card but why is this a requirement in a Country where most people don’t have a bank account, women particularly!

Again I cannot believe this has to be said. Government shouldn’t be making a business out of it. Even the procedure to pay Rs.100 is undoable, wish there was easypesa or mobicash facility. There is another option besides the card as well and I am forgetting that. Oh it’s e-sahulat. I pay taxes but this isn’t about me, it’s about fairness, if the certificate is going to become a prerequisite for access to services then it’ll discriminate against people who don’t have a credit card or are getting paid the minimum wage or below it.

Proof could be obtained through sms at 1166 and is acceptable at almost all places. Thanks, I didn’t know that (like many others). just checked it’s working and it’s showing the dates. some problem in my mother’s record as I am still receiving Msgs for vaccination (she has been vaccinated but her record isn’t Entered). You can also just get a message of proof from 1166 for free if you can’t afford/don’t have resources for downloading the certificate.

There is also the free option of texting 1166 with your CNIC. Which makes me wonder why we even need a verification to begin with. I think it’s just for people travelling or those who really want it. Otherwise the vaccination card works just as well. Also, sometimes the website randomly stops working. For people saying they ‘easily’ managed to pay it the first time, I tried it once for myself and it worked fine. And when I tried for my husband it wouldn’t accept the same card, on the same day no matter how many times we tried.


Shah Hussain Khadija Siddiqui Full Story Stabbing Case

Read here full story of Shah Hussain Khadija Siddiqui stabbing case with photos and video and you can know meaning of stabbing in Urdu. You would also be surprised to learn that there are so many people who are still defending this heinous and shameless and gruesome act.

In 2016 khadija siddiqui ,a law student was stabbed 23 times by his class fellow ,shah hussain .This is the repercussion of saying “NO”.This was a case of insistence and rejection .Why these egoistic souls can’t keep up with this rejection? He was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment but he has been released by court after 3.5 years of imprisonment.

Why on earth has Shah hussain, the animal who stabbed #KhadijaSiddiqui 23 times with a knife been released after 3.5 years vs. the 5 year sentence he was given by the court? After this, a #ZahirJaffer in the body of Shah hussain is lurking around you, beware. 23 times released from jail after serving 3.5y against his 5y sentence .Can PTI explain how when Govt cant remit sentence without Khadija’s consent nor does he qualify for good behaviour release given conviction under 324PPC?

Nothing will get better until the judicial reforms. We must point out all the flaws in our justice system. We must understand how almost all the cases always destroy the victim because our system is designed to protect the elitist lot. I never had any hope. Shah Hussain was convicted under 324PPC. He cannot be released for good behaviour, etc. He doesn’t qualify. As per reports, his influential father threatened people back then.There was a lot of character assassination of Khadija too ‘shame’ her into giving up.

And some people are just too much by asking:

Why didn’t she say anything when she was harassed.
Why didn’t she go to police/court when she was beaten/stabbed.

I mean do you even understand the meaning of harassment? The Battle Khadija Siddiqui fought for whole 3 freaking years, the same case when she was attacked by her ex-boyfriend went into vain, yes ladies and gentlemen that psychopath is set free.


So What If Zulfi Bukhari Met with Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen

So what if Zulfi Bukhari or anyone from Pakistan has met with anyone in Israel? Yossi Cohen is now ex-chief of Mossad as he stepped down few days back. Mossad is the premier intelligence agency of Israel just like Pakistan has ISI, US has CIA, Russia has KGB, and India has RAW. According to the Israeli media Zulfi Bukhari met with Mossad chief Yossi Cohen last November.

I know there is lots of hue and cry on Pakistani social media about this covert meeting as we have been programmed from our childhood to hate them. Overwhelming majority of us don’t even know where Israel is located physically. We don’t even know what exactly the history is and what our feud with them. We don’t even seem to know or digest that even UAE, Qatar and Algeria has now relations with Israel. Turkey has been Israel’s long time friend now and so is Egypt and Jordan.

What’s our problem? Why we shouldn’t be having ties with Israel? To tell you the truth, Israelis are one of the most brainiest people out there. Their technical prowess is proven beyond doubt. I know what I am about to say won’t be liked much by many but look at Israel on the map and marvel how they have been surviving among vast Muslim countries for decades. No sir, it’s just not due to US largess though it certainly has part to play. It also tells us mettle of these people.

Yes you can justifiably criticize them for their brutal treatment of Palestinians, but then they are a reality too. We must act diplomatically and open channels with them. I have worked with them abroad in UK and USA in professional capacity and I am telling you they are very professional and nice people. Yes many of ultra-orthodox ones are as crazy as some of our extremists but then we all can only be embarrassed about such characters. Let’s not make it personal and let’s grow up as nation states. 

We have much to gain by being friend of Israel rather than their adversary. Which country can survive in this world without it? Especially when it’s a country which can fall prey easily to advances of an aggressive neighbor.  Though I am also in huge favor of normalizing ties with India but seriously we have nothing against Israel at all. 


Why Judges Need Summer Vacations in Pakistan?

With all due respect to the honorable judges of all the courts in Pakistan; Respected sirs and madams why exactly do you need summer vacation? I mean with such a huge colossal backlog of cases which are pending for generations why judges need summer vacations in Pakistan?

With 200,000 pending cases alone in LHC, a 50% daily leftover with a working strength of only 65%; depleting it further by 25% for 2 months just to continue a rotten colonial legacy is ridiculous. In any other world people with a slight conscience would have been working overtime. I believe that Apex court should review the system by itself and make necessary amends. I know that their line of work is tough but then every work is tough.

Then there is this point of view, “You don’t even know the system so know before you question they don’t go for holidays for whole three months rather every justice get 15 days and so the benches or cases are scheduled accordingly. Courts continue to works so are the “judge sahibaan”.” Now I am not saying that judges take 3 months of vacations like school kids but when they have annual leaves then why the summer vacations?

The system of vacations is a legacy of colonial rule. A practice introduced by the British in India to allow their judges ample time to travel home (UK) and back. The situation as the country is facing demands that courts should do away with such long vacations. Also please know that judges do carry on working in holidays, The supreme court judges return to their parent High courts and carry on working there. They don’t just go home and enjoy summer.

Judges should’ve their own personal holiday quota which they could book at any time through out the year individually so that the courts are not close n running through out the year like the rest of the world. Other than summer vacation,these judges leave the courts on Friday afternoon for their native place and return on Monday afternoon. They also take leave to three times a year.

This law is from colonial time, when gora sahib liked to have vacation in London and not in hot weather. Having all the luxuries and amenities along with perks of having Airconditioned court rooms and cars and all paid while the plaintiffs wait in scorching heat outside the court rooms just and all they hear is next date. Still out honourable judges need vacations (that too paid). Gora Sahib can’t stand the heat of Pakistan and will spend the summer in their home, England.

If they go on summer holidays then there should be an arrangement in place to occupy their positions so that continued justice system keep functioning. This is the problem when institutions are not accountable and decide their own affairs and benefits.
