A lot is being done to improve the road communications and mass transportation systems in Lahore, Rawalpindi, Multan, Faisalabad and of late Karachi. Billions and billions are being spent on these projects which the critics think are not that essentially required and the huge amounts could be utilized elsewhere on much more badly needed projects to ameliorate the lot of the masses. Anyway, now th Click here to read Full Article
The Dollar Slide by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 16/Jul/2014 Views:144 Replies:0 
One wonders whether it was an admission, a revelation or a confession when the PM disclosed the other day that the govt. had to put in a Herculean effort to thwart the downward slide of the dollar in December 2013 and stop it at Rs. 98 from its peak value of Rs. 111 as it could go down further to Rs. 50 and 60. He said that it was done to protect the interest of the exporters who would have suffe Click here to read Full Article
 
Electoral Reforms by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

Elections in Pakistan have always been controversial and mostly not very fair either, except for the only one held in December 1970 and that too ironically under a military dictator. In our elections foul play starts right from the scrutiny of the nomination papers of a candidate and goes on all the way up to the counting of votes and compiling/announcing of the results. It is done at times with t Click here to read Full Article

Moon Sighting By Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

Maulana Popalzai has done it once again and has given rise to the same controversy that we have been living with almost ever since the inception of Pakistan. That is, to start the month of Ramzan a day earlier than the rest of the country and consequently celebrate the Eid ul Fitr also a day or two earlier than the rest. Ironically, it is such a simple problem to tackle if we make use of the mode Click here to read Full Article
Judicial System by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

A five member bench of the epic court has suspended the SHC decision to remove Gen. Pervez Musharraf’s name from the ECL. Apart from going into the pros and cons of the case, one wonders as to how the SHC had given the verdict for the removal of the name and why has the SCP now given orders to the contrary. Did the SHC hear some other arguments and the SCP some other? Did the SHC apply some other Click here to read Full Article

Shahbaz Resignation Ever since Lahore horrific incidence there has been not a single TV talk show that doesn’t ask for the resignation of the Chief Minister of the Punjab Shahbaz Sharif or that of his Home Minister Rana Sanaullah. Pro MLN speakers and their opponents argue for and against the resignation so vehemently and vigorously that one is simply amazed to see the power of their vocal co Click here to read Full Article
Vision: (An appeal to the young) by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

We don't achieve excellence because our own lack of vision - Oliver Wendall Holmes. He was born to win but conditioned to lose, depriving himself of his heritage because of lack of vision. Don't let negative people drag you down. Remember that a person's character is not only judged by the company he keeps but also by the company he avoids. Oh Allah bless our leaders with some vision also Click here to read Full Article
 
Formal Wear by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
Posted By: Riaz On: 16/Jun/2014 Views:157 Replies:0 
On formal occasions coat buttons are to be buttoned up while standing or walking outdoors as well as indoors but can be undone while seating whether indoors or outdoors. The protocol officer or the Military Secretary must ‘educate’ the uninitiated in such small matters of etiquette if the gentleman himself is unaware of it. The best would be to appear on all such formal occasions in the national Click here to read Full Article

PAT Chief Dr. Tahirul Qadri has announced his return to Pakistan on 23rd June 2014 to kick off the people’s revolution. He fears that he would be killed on arrival and has named MNS and a few of his close ministers for his assassination if it takes place. He has in the same breath asked the army to takeover the security arrangements of Islamabad airport where he intends to land. What a bizarre an Click here to read Full Article
