We are all aware of the current situation faced by the people of Pakistan in the floods and their open request for help in the media.
I suggest that the British Army is withdrawn from Afghanistan and move immediately to Pakistan to help there.
This will show demonstrate true British value's and with our Boys & Girls, I know that the best help available will be on hand.
Politically, in doing this act of kindness we will ease all of the tensions and perhaps start to live together in the world.
This needs action now as their situation is not likely to improve any time soon.
Extremist Wahabbi / Deobandis have once again attacked the Data Darbar Lahore. This time their target was the sacred shrine of Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh Ali Hajveri, a Persian Sufi and scholar during the 11th century who significantly contributed to the spreading of Islam in South Asia.
It was the second major attack in Lahore, capital of Pakistan’s Punjab province, in just over a month. This barbaric and vicious attack on innocent civilians deserves the condemnation of every nation and should serve as a wake up call.
"This barbarous act has no place among civilized people and shocks the conscience of all peace-loving nations. There is no cause that could ever justify this action."
We extend our deepest condolences to the victims, their families...
Since the Taliban took power in 1996, women had to wear burquas and have been beaten and stoned in public for not having the proper attire, even if this means simply not having the mesh covering in front of their eyes.
One woman was beaten to DEATH by an angry mob of fundamentalists for accidentally exposing her arm while she was driving.
Another was stoned to death for trying to leave the country with a man that was not a relative.
Some women got their fingers cut off because of putting nail polish on.
Women are not allowed to work or even go out in public without a male relative.
Professional women such as professors, translators, doctors, lawyers, artists and writers have been forced from their jobs and stuffed into their homes.
Everyone has a right to a tolerable human existence, even if they are women in a Muslim country in a part of the world that Americans do not understand.
Every year men are killed in action for no reason. And worse still is that the government once upon a time stated that they would pull our troops out and yet we are sending more in. Why? When there are men being killed and severely wounded.
This year already 94 men have died and for no reason other that the fact that they are there and driving around in unsafe trucks and don't have the proper protection. Just pull them out like the government said they would and stop the death.
Support Our Troops
On Friday April 3rd, 2009, CBC broadcasted a documentary regarding the presence of Pashtun Taliban in Karachi, Pakistan. The claims, comments and conclusions made in this video report lack substance, and factual analysis. The report wholly subscribes to the views and opinions of MQM- an ethnic local political Party. Pashtun Community of Canada was outraged to watch this documentary, unfairly and untruthfully portraying Pashtuns in Karachi as Terrorists.
Karachi is a multi-ethnic and the biggest city of Pakistan. Approximately Two million (2,000,000) Pashtuns are living in Karachi who have gradually settled there since long. These Pashtuns have established businesses and are contributing the much needed workforce for the development of this metropolitan city. Over the past 50 years the Pashtuns have established themselves as successful entrepreneurs, business owners and dignified residents of Karachi. Ever since its economic and political interests started clashing in early 80s due to emergence of middle class Pashtuns, MQM has adopted anti Pashtun policy based on racial discrimination and ethnic killings.
Like the producer of CBC, we too are worried about the increased influence of Taliban across the region, but the CBC made a journalistic error by focusing only one side of the story and ignoring the consequences of this one sided documentary for the two million plus Pashtuns in Karachi; particularly for the newly arrived refugees forced by the Taliban and the military out of their homes and towns in the North.
"We found widespread systematic violation of the human rights of women in the Taliban areas of Afghanistan". UN Statement.
Official Taliban decrees, punishable by beating, stoning, and death, ban women's work outide the Health industry, education, and mobility. Afghan women and girls risk their lives daily to realize the very basic human needs. Even after international condemnation, the Taliban have only made slight and unofficial changes to their gender apartheid policies.
