Posted By: Riaz Created On: 21/Jul/2016 Views: 60 Replies: 0 
Kindly allow me the courtesy of your august columns to draw the attention of the Ministry of Finance towards an ambiguity in the mind of some regarding the 25% increase in the pension of those who have attained the age of 85 years on July 1st 2016. The SRO reads, “25 percent increase in net pension to all pensioners of federal government above the age of 85 years with effect from 1st July 2016 Click here to read Full Article

Riaz Malik might have had some other considerations to name the under construction university at Hyderabad as “Altaf Hussain University”, but in view of the latest allegations and revelations about Altaf Bhai, and the unparalleled services rendered to the humanity at large by the Greatest Humanitarian who has recently departed, I appeal to the government and the nation to rename it as “Abdul Click here to read Full Article
 
OGRA and the Govt. by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 21/Jul/2016 Views:60 Replies:0 
Though a welcome news that the govt. has overruled the increase in the prices of fuel suggested by OGRA yet, it put me to thinking as to what the heck these Regulatory Authorities are doing in Pakistan? Don’t they make their recommendations after taking all pros and cons into consideration in the best interest of Pakistan that the govt (read PM) just overrules them ostensibly in the public interes Click here to read Full Article

Changezi Gate by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 29/Jun/2016 Views:155 Replies:0 
I propose that the under construction border gate at Torkham be named “Changezi Gate” after the valiant brave Major Ali Jawwad Changezi Shaheed to commemorate and immortalize his Shahadat that would also serve as a bitter reminder to the Afghans across of the immense bravery and sacrifice of the Shaheed for his country.

Peshawar Firing by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 29/Jun/2016 Views:143 Replies:0 
Look at the Machiavellian twist the Kurram Agency Political Clerk has so artistically given to a murderous attempt by his son(s) to the firing in self defence on the other party who were according to him trying to kidnap him! Well done the political clerk, but does he think that all those watching the live tv video of the naked incident are fools to fall in to his trap. Agreed a couple of crores Click here to read Full Article
 
Sehr and Iftar Timings by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 29/Jun/2016 Views:156 Replies:0 
I was just wondering as to who forecasts and tabulates the Sehr and Iftar timings with that precision for each day of the month and for all major and minor cities of Pakistan that are printed on various calendars, newspapers and magazines in advance by a few days before the start of Ramazan? Not only that but throughout the year the precise timings for the five prayers are also forecast in the sa Click here to read Full Article
Durand Line or Greater Pakistan by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 29/Jun/2016 Views:135 Replies:0 
A lot is being said and done on both sides of the Durand Line by the governments of Pakistan and Afghanistan, the latest being the construction of the Changezi Gate at Torkham. Unfortunately, all such traffic and migratory regulatory steps taken between the two neighbouring countries are causing more of acrimony than harmony between them. Immediately after the creation of Pakistan a bogey of Pusht Click here to read Full Article
 
Ramazan and TV Shows by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 29/Jun/2016 Views:142 Replies:0 
Nearly all our tv channels, and by the grace of Allah there is no dearth of them , are telecasting Ramazan special shows such as “Rooh e Ramazan”, “Raunaq e Ramazan”, “Shan e Ramazan”, “Rehmat e Ramazan”, “Ishq e Ramazan”, “Pak Ramazan”, et al. All claim to be highly “rooh parwar”, but to me some of them are competing for the mad rating rat race amongst themselves by turning their programmes whi Click here to read Full Article
Pensioners Plight by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 15/Jun/2016 Views:173 Replies:0 
It would be ungrateful on the part of the pensioners not to thank the govt. for the 10% and 25% relief offered to them. In these hard days of high inflation and sky rocketing prices any respite big or small is more than welcome. However, it was pathetic to see long queues of old men and women standing for hours in the sizzling sun without shade and water at the bank windows waiting helplessly for Click here to read Full Article
