Karakoram University admin requests for 'favor' from The Terrorland

Special Report

THE First Anniversary of The Terrorland group blogs proved hectic! The Terrorland Team (TTT) is in the middle of legal notices from the Pakistani government as well as the mainstream media. So it was a unique birthday where TTT was not given presents but legal notices, threats, shenanigans and tactics of psychological warfare. That is what anyone, who seeks justice, freedom of thought and freedom of expression in the militarized and Talibanized country, can face. 

Let it be clear: whatever TTT publishes, first members investigate into the matter from different angles and then collect evidence from opposite sources, and then publish something about a scam or taboo subject. But that is not the end. Even after publication of a post, all options are open to publish the points of view of any and everyone so that readers could find the ultimate truth.

The White Paper on the irregularities of the administration of the Karakoram International University (KIU), issued by the Academic Staff Association (ASA), has forced the accused to come out of hibernation! KIU Director Information Technology Muhammad Arif has sent an email to Habib Sulemani, who has forwarded it to TTT. Here it goes without any editing:

dear habib sb/terrorland

We, the entire family of Karakoram International University, Gilgit-Baltistan are strongly condemn on the unethical, unjustified and baseless information about Karakoram International University, Gilgit-Baltistan that has been added on "THE TERRORLAND" @ <theterrorland@googlegroups.com>,

You are requested to please remove this up loaded pages from your blog that is entirely based on fake informations so that KIU (Alma Mata)  keep on its real objective i.e, to promote human development at all stages of life;  application of knowledge, and provide a service that values sustainable, humanitarian, and economic development of the environment.

We look forward for a positive and favorable response in future from your kind self and the The Terrorland Team (TTT)

Director IT, Karakoram International University
Gilgit Baltistan

That was the KIU admin. TTT would always welcome every point of view, including the accused KIU admin. But TTT has convincing evidence of the allegations, and whenever a case reaches the court, things would be crystal clear. However, here TTT wants to show one piece of evidence—besides Muhammad Shahnawaz, chairman KIU Academic Staff Association's executive members have signed the White Paper, sent to TTT, and after a long list of allegations, it ends with these words:

"We join this University (KIU) with high ambition but unfortunately our dreams have been shattered when we found that the Vice-Chancellor (Dr. Najma Najam) of our beloved university least bother about education and we are helpless to stop such irregularities. After pondering a lot, a “ray of hope” illuminated our minds that the Honorable Chancellor (Asif Ali Zardari, who is also the President of Pakistan), the Senate and the members of Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly (GBLA) will listen to our voice with sympathy and kindness
and defiantly take a swift action against such people. We have provided a plenty of proofs to take action against them. You are our last hope as we want quality of education not degrees of unemployment."

Here is a facsimile of the White Paper, with signatures of 19 respected professors of the KIU, who are executive members of the KIU Academic Staff Association:



According to sources in the KIU admin, Vice-Chancellor Dr. Najma Najam, Registrar Dr. Ahsanullah Mir, Assistant Professor Manzoor Ali, Dr. Salma Durrani and other member of the ‘gang’ have been isolated on campus as the academic staffers have decided to save the university from 'total' devastation. The University Senate, led by former bureaucrat G.M. Sikandar, is also determined to 'reinstate' the integrity of the KIU and its academic staff.

"The VC and her gang members are either retired persons or are doing more than one job currently, therefore, they damn care if the KIU lingers on or is closed-down. Rather they would want to close it for ever so that no investigation is initiated against them... making it a closed chapter... but for us, the KIU is not only a matter of job but the future of our children, future of the entire nation," said an official on condition of anonymity. 

An official said that the long arm of law is finally reaching the criminals on campus “who have abused their power and not only destroyed the KIU but also damaged the reputation of our national organizations countrywide”.

Anniversary-One: Habib Sulemani & The Terrorland both face tyranny

Special Report

TODAY is the first anniversary of The Terrorland group blogs in Pakistan. On April 28, 2010, after the attacks on Habib R. Sulemani and his family members, we launched this group blog from hiding as the final option to help the family in danger.

From different sources, we came to know that in a very systematic way – as the secret agencies do – Mr. Sulemani’s family was being ‘removed’ in collaboration with an influential part of our mainstream media. The mainstream media was forced by a powerful group to keep silent on Mr. Sulemani’s issue as a part of the assassination plot – concocted in Islamabad and approved in Rawalpindi – so this blog proved the ‘lifeline in tyranny and oppression’ for the Sulemanis.

The society had either become deaf-and-dumb or had turned against the writer—it was a part of the punishment for being a ‘non-conformist’ writer in the militarized and Talibanized country. Independent thinking has become a serious crime in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. But the secret agencies can't enchain ideas of a creative writer! 

Primarily, the name of this blog shocked many people but the content was more ‘shocking’ as we had touched ‘taboo’ subjects with an ease! We’re facing many difficulties for helping the Sulemanis—so we’re in no condition to claim anything—just visit our archives, see the media and society's collective behavior! Tolerance is in the air!

However, personally, during this week, we’ve been ‘served’ a legal notice of defamation worth Rs.10 million from an official of The Express Tribune for posting an investigative report. The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (Moitt), whose in-charge is Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, has issued five notices to us. Here they’re:

The Terrorland: Habib Sulemani gets defamation notice, Rs.10m sought

Special Report 

OUR recent five-part investigative report on intellectual dishonesty in the Pakistani mainstream media –  Dawn's yellow blood transfuses to The Express Tribune – has shocked people, and  made The Terrorland the first blog which has been served a legal notice from a member of the editorial management of a mainstream daily newspaper, claiming damages worth Rs. 10 million.
  
The Express Tribune’s City Editor Farman Ali has sent a legal notice of defamation to Habib Sulemani, instead of The Terroroland Team.

Mr. Ali’s lawyer has adopted a stance that “you are running an internet news blog with the name of The Terrorland, a liberal forum to discuss intellectual terrorism and the mass media, a taboo subject, in Pakistan,” saying “that you are regularly releasing/issuing defamatory material against my client on your internet blog and use filthy/abusing language which is totally against the moral values of the society as well as the law of the freedom of expression.”

“That in the shadow of the freedom of expression, you are using the blog ‘The Terror land (sic) as a weapon and circulating huge defamatory material against my client to destroy his reputation and mentally torture him.”

The legal notice says Mr. Ali “is well reputed high class journalist as well as respectable citizen of Pakistan. He has long standing experience in the field of journalism, earlier he was working as news editor with famous daily English news paper Daily Dawn”.

It claims: “That my client many times contacted you and told to you to stop this activity but you didn’t take it seriously and turn no response of these verbal and written notices.” The notice warned: “I am issuing this last and final notice to you to stop the campaign against my client and to pay ten million rupee as compensation money to damage the honor and dignity of my client. I am giving you seven days legal notice to resolve this issue; otherwise my client has a right to initiate/proceed criminal as well as civil litigation against you.”

My traumatized father underwent successful head surgery

By Nasira Parveen
(Updated)
My father Suleman Shah at home
MY traumatized father, after cancellation of flights for two days due to bad weather, was finally shifted to Rawalpindi on April 6, 2011. He was admitted to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Rawalpindi on the same day. On April 8 he underwent a successful head surgery, and on April 13 he was shifted to our home in Rawalpindi where my uncle Amirullah Baig was recovering from his illness.

I'm glad my traumatized father survived brain hemorrhage and underwent a successful surgery at the Neurology Department of CMH. Being the father of a martyr of the Pakistan Army, my father got free treatment otherwise in the present conditions, it was very difficult to manage the money (readers of The Terrorland are aware of the 13-month-long family crisis, which has got international attention). The doctors took special care of my sexagenarian father.

On this occasion, we felt as the isolation is going to an end finally. We've reclaimed many relations, friendships and many new social links have been developed. Thank you all for your courageous support in this difficult time. 

Today, on behalf of my family, I want to say a 'thank you' to Major-General Professor Dr. Salman Ali of the Army Medical College Rawalpindi for his help and guidance. Dr. Salman is known as the People's General who heals the wounds of the poor from all over Pakistan everyday from morning till late at night at the Military Hospital (MH).

My father and uncle at home in Rawalpindi.
We want to thank Lieutenant-Colonel Dr. Arslan, Major Dr. Habib Khan and Major Dr. Khursheed – the team of competent surgeons at the CMH Neurology Department – who operated on my father successfully. Also, words of thanks are due to the paramedical staffers on duty.

Our thanks are also due to the doctors at The Aga Khan Health Center in Gilgit in particular Dr. Hyder, Dr. Ali Ahmed and Dr Sher Aziz for the emergency help, and guidance. We're thankful to Dr. Haider Khan at The Aga Khan Health Center in Aliabad, Hunza, for the medical checkup and suggestions to shift my father to Gilgit. Thank you Dr. Sharyar, Dr. Shahina and auntie Shahida at The Aga Khan Health Center in Gulmit, Gojal, where my father went after splitting headache.

Thank you Babar bhai for spending the time with my father at the CMH as my elder brother Habib Sulemani couldn't go there due to the threats to his life. Thanks to my cousins Faryadullah Baig and Shah Hassan Baig for spending nights with my father at the hospital in Gilgit. Thanks Laila Bhaji,  brother-in-law Muhammad Hussain and my brother Ghulam Rehman's fiancĂ© Ajeeba, Safdar Khan, Amin Khan, Karimullah Baig and many others for the help at the hospitals in Hunza and Gilgit.

I also want to thank Governor Gilgit-Baltistan Pir Karam Ali Shah for visiting my father at the hospital in Gilgit, and ex-District Councilor Raja Shebaz Khan, Raja Aminullah, Raja Nazimulamin, Aziz Muhammad, Hameedullah, Karimullah, Ammar Barlas, Abdulah, Imran Azam, and others for visiting my father at the hospital in Rawalpindi.

Hospital discharge slip of my father.
Thank you Jabbar Bhai (Executive Engineer Wapda) and Gulnar Bhaji for the best wishes and delicious food for my father and uncle. We also want to thank you for taking along uncle Madad Ali, aunties Bibi Nawa, Sangeen Bakht, Israr and others.

Those who visited my father at home included brothers Sarwer Holand, Aaqil Shah, Feroz Shah, Zaheer Abbas, Sherzaman Gulzaman, Sohail Rashid, Wasim Toor, Nazir Ahmed, Shahida Ahmed, Ayan Ahmed, auntie Guldasta, Farman Ali Razi, Shafqat Karim, Masood Khan, Mubasher Khan, Noor Aman, Fida Ali and Fayyaz Niyatullah. 

On the flight and Islamabad Airport uncles Syeedullah and Rehmatullah Baig proved a great help, and I want to thank them as well.

I want to thank uncle Hassanullah Baig for the continuous calls to my father who is now relaxing at home – most of the time he is reading, watching TV and some everyday chitchat.

I want to thank my cousin Dr. Azizullah Baig for calling from Tajikistan and his wife Shazia expressing sympathies from the United States. Uncles Sharif, Esa Baig, Musa Baig, Tajran, Bedal, Yousuf Shiskat and others called my father. Thank you all.

Thanks for calling my father -- brothers Fazal Amin Baig (scholar), Manzoor Karim (Banker) Tariq Aziz, Ayub, Sherullah, Hameedullah Goz, Aziz Panah, Safdar, Inayat Dewan and their families.

Also Aunties Safida Ebadat Shah, Bakht Jehan, Firasat, sister Bibisa and many other relatives called my father and prayed for his early recovery. Thank you very much for all the indirect messages from uncles Saleem Khan, Ibrahim Khan Khalil, grandpa Arbab Dewan Shah, aunties Mehwash, Bibi Qand and their family members. 

Many thanks to brothers Muhammad Afzal, Amir Khan, Ali Ahmed Jan, Bulbul Jan, Akram, Saddam S.U. Baig, Shahid Feroz; uncles Ghulam Ali, Ghulam Rasul, Raja Bahadur Khan, Abdul Rasheed, Muhammad Shafi, Jaboon uncle, aunties Bibi Husni, Feroza and many others. 

Thank you uncle Qasim Ali and his family especially Muhammad Ali, Shaheen, Nadia and Munera for visiting my father. Thanks Sultan Aziz Daulat Shah for the call. 

I want to thank those who through the cyber space conveyed their messages, sympathies and prayers.

My uncle Amirullah, a veteran of the Pakistan Army, has returned to Gilgit. He was shifted to the MH in Rawalpindi on January 31, 2011. There he remained admitted for about 16 days and then was shifted at our home. On April 23, 2011 he left  Rawalpindi in good health. However, he is on medication for some months. I want to thank all those who took care of my uncle from Gulmit to Gilgit and then in Rawalpindi.

My family's special thanks are due to famous mountaineer of Pakistan, Nazir Sabir, Speaker Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly Wazir Baig and those government officials who arranged an helicopter to shift my uncle from the stranded Gulmit – for the last 16 months this area is cutoff from rest of Pakistan due to landsliding – to Gilgit's military hospital. 

I want to thank our caring and peaceful neighbors including Erin, Jimmy, Javed, Zaiba auntie, SP Tahir Ali and their families for their prayers and wishes.

We're grateful to all those relatives and friends who contacted us to express their sympathies but I've forgotten their names to mention here in this blog being written in haste. Many thanks to them all besides those relatives and friends who couldn't reach us.

May God bless you all.

I fear no one on earth, says ISI official


Karakoram International University: Google image
TO avenge Habib R. Sulemani, the scripted drama staged on March 22, 2010 at the Karakoram International University (KIU) was actually the beginning of a series of criminal attacks on his sister, Nasira Parveen, himself and other family members.

His sister was just a soft target, but she proved stronger than steel. This shocked the 'gang of coward criminals' -- in the guise of teachers and administration officials on campus and their patrons outside -- who were very sure of the success of the 'tested' plot on which they had been working for over an year.

As we had said earlier, the KIU is the only university for the over 2 million population of Gilgit-Baltistan, a 72,000-sq/km region, which has no representation in the Pakistani federation (parliament) and is being ruled by the federal government on ad-hoc basis since 1947. And, it seems that to destroy the future of the new generation – direct or indirect attacks, harassment or negative results in examinations – is the part of an evil strategy to stop the people seeking their basic human rights in The Orphanland.

After mutual consultation, when a family member of Mr. Sulemani, started investigation into the matter in Gilgit, he was threatened and harassed at every point. He didn’t take it personally—but dealt it like a professional journalist according to the advice of Mr. Sulemani, who, from Rawalpindi/Islamabad, was in telephonic contact with everyone in Gilgit and Hunza. Here we're publishing the investigator's exclusive write-up.—The Terrorland Team  

I totally ignored the tactics of psychological warfare including social isolation, accusations and horrific propaganda campaign through different social channels especially SMSes. My main target was to protect Nasira from any kind of attack as she was the prime target at that time. As the criminal gang at the KIU wanted to kill her in any way... they even killed a woman in Gilgit city during this time and the news was published in the national media to show a precedent of the would-be crime. The gang feared Nasira would expose them in a court of law. 

At a time when some people were avoiding the family—as a part of the criminal plot, I searched out sources to collect bits of information. During this process, I received a number of threatening phone calls from the secret agencies to local community leaders. But I didn’t stop collecting information about the gods of our polarized region.

During my investigation, I met different people and government officials. The KIU administration was silent. When I saw officials of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) active, in surprise I asked myself: who really runs the KIU? 

When I approached the KIU administration, Vice-Chancellor Dr. Najma Najam was reluctant to meet me—she kept me on waiting for hours but didn’t allow the guards to let me inside the KIU campus in Gilgit. In the meantime in Islamabad, Mr. Sulemani was pressurized to bow but he was determined to register criminal cases against the criminals on campus and the masterminds in Islamabad. 

One day I was allowed to meet KIU Registrar Dr. Ahsanullah Mir. During the 33-minute conversation, he couldn’t justify their illegal action of stopping Nasira from attending classes, saying that he couldn’t do anything but the VC, who was "not available".

“I’m not allowed to speak on this matter,” he said. A simple way to escape from the long arm of the law. When I insisted on a meeting with the VC, every time, I was told: "Dr. Najma is in Islamabad.

Later on, I got her entire travel schedules from Gilgit to Islamabad and vice versa.

“Is she the VC of some university in Islamabad or the KIU in Gilgit?" I asked an official. "Whenever I ask for a meeting, I face the same tantrum!" 

"Who are you to ask this," the official said.

Another whispered to dilute the bitterness: "Sir, you don't know how powerful she (VC) is—she can run the university even from her home or a foreign country!” 

Such an answer is often heard from even the civil bureaucracy in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Despite bugging phone calls, text messages and emails, suspicious persons were always following me and other family members. After some days, I went to the university again, but the security guards didn’t let me inside the campus. They kept me hanging on... but when Mr. Sulemani refused to compromise and sought legal action against the accused, then VC’s personal assistant clearly told me: “The VC doesn’t want to meet you!”

After the desperate attacks on Mr. Sulemani in Rawalpindi, he is living in solitary confinement for the last 13 months and seeks action against the powerful accused as the police have refused to register cases while the Pakistani government is silent.

One day, when I met the then KIU Campus Director Karim Khan, he begged me to avoid the legal way and resolve the issue mutually. “I’m an aged man like your father. I've also five daughters. In our conservative society we avoid the laws and use traditions to solve issues amicably.”

One thing was clear. Dr. Najma Najam was running the university with the help of secret agencies like the Political Agents run the tribal areas in Pakistan: Registrar Dr. Ahsanullah Mir was acting as a Taliban commander on campus; Karim Khan was acting as leader of the Shia community while Manzoor Ali -- assistant professor, physics department and president Ismaili Regional Council Gilgit -- was acting as a tribal leader of the Ismailis. It was shocking. They university admin was not following the rules of the government but had made their own system.

Strangely, Dr. Ahsan, Karim Khan and Prof Manzoor were patronizing student wings on sectarian basis which were acting like their private militia on campus. 

"I've worked with the Aga Khan Foundation," Dr. Ahsanullah Mir was always repeating. "Ismailis are peaceful people, solve this issue without wasting time in the long process of courts."

"Prof. Manzoor has made the decision in the Nasira case," Dr. Salma Durrani said one day. "You should solve this within your community," she strangely advised.

"But where are the rules," when asked, Dr. Durrani simply shunned.

Then one day a community leader revealed: "Prof. Manzoor says he is helpless in Nasira's case, as he has to follow the orders from the topotherwise the powerful Shias on campus and in his Oshkandas locality would make his life miserable." 

The racist and sectarian bent of mind KIU admin had been exposed fully.

Then came a harassing call from an ISI official. I was told to meet them at a given time and point. But later they declined it as I had informed Mr. Sulemani about the rendezvous, who told me: "Meet them as an investigative reporter, not as a member of a victim family. Be ready for anything... they can do anything to you!"

As our phones were being taped (they do it even today). Then the ISI guy phoned me again. He refused in a typical way to give me his name.

"Why do you fear me," I asked.

"I fear no-one on earth," said the ISI official, and went out of my life.

Intellectual terrorism & Karakoram International University have become synonymous! The KIU Academic Staff Association has now issued a White Paper on the irregularities of the university admin. But the government is determined to destroy the only institution of higher learning in the backward region.

Academicians issue White Paper: Karakoram University den of criminals

Special Report

THE allegations of corruption and serious crime on campus have forced faculty members of the Karakoram International University (KIU) to make their voice public against the corrupt administration finally, saying that the KIU has become center of favoritism, corruption and unlawful activities in Gilgit-Baltistan.

“The Academic Staff Association KIU has issued a White Paper against the corrupt ‘regime’ of KIU, which is hereby attached with the supporting documents,” says Muhammad Shahnawaz, chairman KIU Academic Staff Association (ASA), in an email to The Terrorland group blogs. It also includes a statement and a pile of text and scanned files.

The KIU is the only university for the over 2 million population of Gilgit-Baltistan, a region which has no representation in the Pakistani federation (parliament) and is being ruled by the federal government on ad-hoc basis since 1947.

It says that Vice-Chancellor Dr. Najma Najam has put the KIU's existence in danger as there are “worst examples of favoritism, corruption and unlawful activities” on campus and there is no-one to take action against the accused and her team members.

“After taking over the charge of office, sitting Vice-Chancellor (Dr. Najma Najam) has illegally appointed a gang as Assistant Deans to gain undue support for her activities,” Mr. Shahnawaz said in the statement. “The Voice-Chancellor has completely bulldozed the prescribed procedures by appointing deans on ad-hoc basis since 2009.” 

Dr. Najma Najam, who also 'heads' the ISI psychological warfare cell, faces charges of plagiarism besides attack on a female student, Nasira Parveen , with co-accused Dr. Ahsanullah Mir, Assistant Professor Manzoor Ali, Karim Khan, Dr. Salma Durrani, Dr. Muhammad Ramzan and others.

Assistant Professor Manzoor Ali is currently 'plagiarizing' a PhD thesis at the Physics department, Quaid-e-Azam University Islamabad besides being 'involved' in the murder of Shila, killing of a father and daughter in Hunza and many more 'honor-related' crimes in Gilgit. Locals allege that Prof. Manzoor Ali is working for the ISI, misusing his social position as president of the Ismaili Regional Council. "He is involved in the first 'blasphemy' case in Gilgit, just see his statement," said a foreign-educated local, requesting not to be named.

"A leader is there to save their people but Manzoor Ali is there to kill innocent people and be a part of the 'ghairat' (honor) brigade of the ISI to get promotion. Shia, Sunni and Ismaili all are Muslims, and they can't even imagine of committing blasphemy in normal conditions. This is a conspracy to Talibanize and polarize our peaceful society," the local added.

"In the guise of teachers, there are also some hardcore criminals, but out of terror no body can say anything to them," said a female student. "They can attack me directly or indirectly and run my life if I said something about on campus harassment in the presence of a female VC." 

KIU female students become target of 'ISI agents' on campus
The Terrorland blogs have been exposing the inhuman activities of the ‘criminals on campus’ for over a year.  “And now the truth has come out from the horse’s mouth," said a local journalist. "We can’t publish it in our newspaper. But The Terrorland can… and I know like some cheap journalists and media organizations, The Terrorland Team would not take credits with drumbeats!” 

“Until the admin and its puppets among the teachers are suspended and FIRs are registered against them, the reputation of the university couldn’t be restored,” said a KIU staffer on condition of anonymity. “These people are actually agents of intelligence agencies who are playing with the lives of students, unfortunately, female students are their special target.”

While talking about Nasira’s case, the staffer said: “Everybody knows it was a big, big conspiracy against Habib (Sulemani) and people know how the agencies hire boys to make scandals about female family members of potential rivals. The criminals on campus have put the future of our nation in jeopardy.”

The university management issued appointment letters to their near-and-dear-ones not to the candidates who were recommended by members of the selection board. The statement said Rs. 5 million firewood allowance was allocated for the year 2010-2011, however, it was not fully granted to the staff.

The KIU Treasury was being run on ad-hoc basis for last four years and there are huge financial irregularities as the Vice-Chancellor and her powerful gang is misusing the Pakistani and foreign government funds. It said all tenders and contracts had been given to their relatives and favorite people as a part of the ‘collaborated’ corruption.

Dr. Ahsanullah Mir and Assistant Professor Manzoor Ali
The statement said that science laboratories, despite being well-equipped, were not functional. “The present regime of the university totally ignores the rules of HEC and also set aside the previous Syndicate’s approval regarding leave for higher studies.”

"Closing of GARNET (Gems Cutting laboratory) is illegal," the statement said.

“Gilgit-Baltistan is famous for gems and closing of this lab shows that the KIU admin is enemy of education and the people. The VC, Registrar and others must be removed as soon as possible,” a man dealing in precious stones remarked.

The anxiety among the students, academic staff, parents and in the corridors of power is increasing day by day... “No mater what happens, no one can remove Dr. Najma or Dr. Ahsan from the posts of VC and Registrar. They're the most influential people in the region,” said an official. "

Happy Easter from your Muslim brothers & sisters


WE wish our Christian readers from around the world a very Happy Easter. On this occasion we want you to read a poem, if you had missed it earlier. And at the end there is The Easter Song.The Terrorland Team

Jesus and Hussain

By Habib Sulemani

It’s a cold December.
This year,
two opposing calendars
have met
at a common point,
showing a
high degree of commonality!

This meeting of the Gregorian and
Islamic calendars has brought
two oppressed historic characters together,
and December has become vindictively hot!

Jesus of Nazareth is a prophet
of the Muslims. For the Christians, 
his legendary fatherless birth
makes him the son of no-one but God!
  
Hussain of Karbala is the persecuted
beloved grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
For some Muslims. Others believe 
he's a spiritual leader, and savior of the faith.

Whatever. Both preached virtues of humanity
to the common people of their times,
which threatened the cunning power players!

The ISI in those tumultuous times
considered Jesus and Hussain
threats to its traditional tyrant rule! Thus

General Guls, Kayanis and Pashas
tried to eliminate them 
through the ancient version of the Taliban!

However, they failed miserably.

Dawn's yellow blood transfuses to The Express Tribune (5)

Special Report

THE PUBLISHERS: The Express Tribune's Yale-educated
young Bilal Lakhani (left) and Dawn’s Harvard-educated
Hameed Haroon must take notice of 'yellow' journalism.
TODAY is the 73rd death anniversary of Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, the National Poet of Pakistan. Did the philosopher-poet really dream about a militarized and Talibanized country? This is a controversial question and even the poet's octogenarian son, Dr. Javed Iqbal, may laugh it out as he is being forced by the self-styled ideologues in the media to interpret his father's ideas according to their demands!

We're a nation state where after the failure of the Wahabi, Pashtun and Punjabi Taliban, now the 'minds' behind global terrorism are making new versions of terrorists in the name of Barelvi, Shia, Ismaili and other sectarian and racial brands of the so-called Taliban. Dr. Iqbal would be shocked if he sees the condition of his dream-country.

Today, independent thinking has become a serious crime in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The country has become a heaven for Machiavellian intriguers. The 180 million people are suffering at the hands of a minority ruling class - civilian and military. For their personal benefit, members of the ruling class have made Pakistan literally a Machiavellian state on earth as every evil from every part of the world is being traced to our country, and we've become the epicenter of global terrorism.  

You may have got an idea of the Machiavellian intrigues if you've read the previous, especially the third and fourth, parts in this series of articles (links are given at the end of this post). In this last part, there is an analysis of the text of a Machiavellian report titled as: Pakistan, home to a ‘schizophrenic society’, says doctor.

It was written in the same way as a previous article by a so-called blogger of the network. This new article was, however, vastly circulated through two major newspapers of the country. First it was published in The Express Tribune as a ‘planted’ story on March 20, 2011. Then the real culprits at Dawn lifted the first twisted part with more twists on March 26, 201. Besides in-house debates and pick on the writer, Habib R. Sulemani, it was shared and circulated by the cult members through the social media.

"Dr. Mubarik Haider (author of Tehzeebi Nargisiyat, Urdu, Sanjh Publications Lahore, 2009) was surprised at the irresponsible reporting of Aaqib Khan. But the reporter has also expressed his disappointment about the irresponsible editing of the story," said a media-person on condition of anonymity.

Another journalist claimed: "Zaffar Abbas (Editor Dawn) controls the editorial policy of the ET (The Express Tribune). He has sent Farman Ali Baig to destroy the ET, which is fast becoming popular among the cyber-generation. The (Pakistani) government and military establishment are using the Leftist/communists and Rightists Islamists (two timeserving cults in the society) against Habib Sulemani for exposing the intellectual terrorist brigade."

The Leftists and Rightists are the two ugly sides of a rusted coin, and Mr. Sulemani has resisted both of them throughout his life. "He once told colleagues that the chief of the extremist Jamaat-e-Islami, Munawer Hassan, was a former Leftist and now is leader of the hardcore Rightist party. 'Don't you see the bitterness of both the Left and Right on his face?' he remarked, and added that conflict pays and the military establishment wants to gradually shrink Pakistan on independent thinkers with the help of these visionless people."

In an email to a well-wisher from solitary confinement, Mr. Sulemani had said:

I’m a poor working journalist facing tyranny and injustices in my own country. My tormentors had worked on their sinister plan for months—they contacted, directly or indirectly, many people and trapped some of my relatives to use against me—thanks to the cyber age that my cry reached the world—otherwise I would have been killed with my family members so far. I’m still locked inside my home. Unfortunately, there is no response from the government.

As the whole world is monitoring my case, now, the criminal gang has started a new propaganda campaign against me. As the communist regime used to declare their opponents ‘schizophrenic’ in Russia so are the comrades doing here today.

“They’ve declared you mentally retarded and a lone wolf—don’t you see the repeated use of the words in the paper nowadays?” someone said who had an argument with a member of the gang.

“This is not new to me,” I said. “I’m used to their traditional shenanigans. They had used this trick in the past by tampering with my documents—that is why they’re afraid of facing an independent investigation.”

That was Mr. Sulemani last year and the situation hasn't changed. Currently, the world is asking the Pakistani government reasons for the persecution of the writer and the officials have no answer except using the typical ‘schizophrenic’ tactics on the advice (read orders) of the secret agencies which actually run the country. "They had used schizophrenic tactics through the media against the Indian army in Kashmir, and Soviet and American armies in Afghanistan—but now they’re using this inhuman tactic against a writer and his innocent family members. It's a unique incident in the history of psychological warfare in the world," said a text analyst.

Mr. Sulemani is the only example who has stood up to fight the 'minds' behind global terrorism with his keyboard. He has exposed those who use the media criminally. Talking about the corrupt journalists with God-like image is a taboo subject in Pakistan, and raising this issue is considered suicidal for a working journalist. That's why the journalistic bodies are silent. They're doing nothing even for the common journalists except issuing statements. Truthful and professional journalists are being tortured at workplace by the owners and killed in the country by secret agencies.

"Pakistan has really become the worst place for honest journalists and a heaven for the paid-activists in the guise of journalists," said a journalist. "Fortunately, the ongoing intellectual terrorism in Pakistan is now being monitored globally. But still the criminal minds are living in a fool's paradise—thinking that through their dubious newspapers and TV channels, they can still manipulate public opinion in favor of the ‘brains’ behind global terrorism. They do this without thinking that they’re under the global microscope, and their dubious activities in the name of journalism have been exposed. It's time to bring the criminal minds in the guise of respectable journalists to justice."

Now, let's analyze the classic sample of professional dishonesty of the editorial managements of The Express Tribune and Dawn. The text of the malicious report has been give in italics while the analytical comment in brackets [ ].

Pakistan, home to a ‘schizophrenic society’, says doctor

[With this headline, the perpetrators are shamelessly ‘angling’ with the story as they’ve been doing with throughout their lives, and mostly no-one took notice of this professional dishonesty except the few insiders. The perpetrators presented the intellectual statement of Dr. Mubarik Haider, a writer with degree in literature, as the clinical observation of a psychiatrist.]  
 
By Aaqib Khan

[This is the purported reporter but, according to insiders, the first part of the story was 'rephrased' by Farman Ali (The Express Tribune) and was approved by Zaffar Abbas (Dawn) through email.]  

ISLAMABAD:

[This is the dateline of The Express Tribune’s twisted story. Yes, you live freely in the capital city of shenanigans—while Habib Sulemani survived three attacks on his life and is living in solitary confinement in Rawalpindi, the nearby garrison city, since March 29, 2010. Neither the government nor his employers have done anything so far despite requests for providing him and his family members security. Islamabad is the city where – after stealing Mr. Sulemani’s literary work and declaring it against the 'ideology' of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, especially the military establishment and secret agencies – with the help of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI), you concocted the plot to kill Mr. Sulemani along with his entire family in a systematic way—so that no-one could dare to think independently in the militarized and Talibanized nation sate of South Asia. But, fortunately, the plot was foiled in the first stage.]

Most people know at least one individual…

[Yes, according to a social scientist, Mr. Sulemani has become a phenomenon—as he is fighting the 'minds' behind global terrorism with an unbelievable zeal and determination, which, according to an observer, successive governments couldn't do with the military might and billions in pocket. "What the states couldn’t do, the writer is doing with the keyboard!" And you coward liars! You’ve not the courage even to take his name. Because you know he has always exposed your lies and so will he do in the future. You want to deceive the intelligentsia in your ugly style—but now, not only Pakistan, the entire world has got the truth—The Terrorland blogs have exposed you along with your powerful partners in crimes.]

who seems to suffer from a never-ending persecution complex…
 
[The word ‘seems’ has exposed your statement—full of lies. You’re known as a ‘sadist cult’ in the journalistic community! You’re famous for taking revenge indirectly especially by using state machinery (read the secret agencies). Habib Sulemani survived attacks, and lives in solitary confinement for the last 13 months. His sister Nasira was attacked and she is not allowed to attend university for over a year. Another sister Hassina was tortured on campus. His brothers Rehman and teenaged Karim suffered a lot when the family was suddenly isolated in the society soon after the attacks. His 68-year-old father survived a brain hemorrhage, and last week underwent head surgery. But due to the pertaining threats to his life, Mr. Sulemani didn't go to the hospital. His employers at the Dawn Media Group have stopped his salary. His uncle Amirullah and many other family members and relatives are suffering directly or indirectly. There is nothing for the poor family except suffering—and still you call it ‘a never-ending persecution complex’. This is what the Nazis did with their stooges in the media. Just wait for a similar suffering and then you’ll get the real meaning of your phrase! Why don’t you say: Mr. Sulemani has refused to bow or compromise... he seeks legal action and you want to stop him by hook or by crook! Everyone knows that you always smile and meet people in a very polite way... but then stab them in the back by using someone else’s hand! There is a long list of your crimes...]

This individual is convinced that everybody is out to get him…

[You’re wrong again. Let it be clear once and for all: not everybody only you and your patrons—criminals in the guise of journalists and government officials—named in a previous post.]

and declines from reconsidering his opinion…

[Mr. Sulemani has refused to bow before your ‘authority’ and has declined your offers—he’s determined to take legal action against you while you’re stopping him from his basic right. You’ve sent many people to him including Dawn's senior most management, but he has rejected the carrot-and-stick approach! He seeks justice according to the laws of the land so that in future, no-one becomes your ‘silent’ victim. He also wants legal action against you because many silent victims are wishing so—they're coming forward with witness and evidence. They want to test the independent judiciary in Pakistan.]

despite a heap of evidence to the contrary…

[If you’ve that ‘heap of evidence’ then why this cowardice—why’re you afraid of taking Habib Sulemani’s name even? You’ve lost the psychological warfare against the steel-nerved writer who has documented your crimes and has sent the 'piles of evidence' to the whole world. Your team from the psychological warfare cell of the ISI (including some foreign-helpers) has failed in the war against an independent writer. You’ve provided further evidence of your crimes against humanity—a solid case for the International Criminal Court (ICC). Mr. You can’t stand against the brutal truth! The ISI-made ‘heap of evidence’ will go with the wind in a court of law. Do you understand, big fools in great organizations!]  

He dreams up wild…  

[Yes, that is the difference between you, the unimaginative Taliban-like beasts, and Mr. Sulemani. Besides being an upright journalist, he’s also a creative writer, not a clerical mind! Unlike the he-said-she-said-reporters, donkey-like-desk-jockeys and press-release-reporter-turned-editors, Mr. Sulemani is an independent thinker, whose poetry and fiction have been termed the beginning of new literature in the world.]  
         
and fantastic conspiracies that others have plotted against him…  

[Don’t generalize things! He’s talking with convincing evidence specifically about you only, read his blogs. What is fact and what is fiction, in a court of law things would be crystal clear. By the way, Mr. Sulemani knows very well the difference between journalism and fiction—he draws a line between fact and fiction in his professional life!]

and interprets every action with deep suspicion…  

[Mr. Sulemani is talking about undeniable facts with evidence, some of which have been put on The Terrorland group blogs while many have been left for the courts. Lies, propaganda and conspiracy theories are your trademark for which your network gets millions from the secret agencies. He has spent over 15 years in the mainstream Pakistani media (including the Jang Group and Dawn Media Group) thus he knows you and your criminal tactics better than many others. Mr. Sulemani's MSc degree in sociology helps him in understanding your deviant behavior—that is why, after failing to beat him directly, you hatched the criminal plan with the secret agencies, and targeted his female family members.]

To substantiate his view, he believes there must be something about him that others are jealous of or desire to covet.

[Some points about the writer have been highlighted above. Again, Mr. Sulemani substantiates his case with evidence, proof and has witnesses. You corrupt and intellectually bankrupt people are always with childish assumption and foolish propaganda for which you get huge amounts from the exchequer of this begging country. You shameless beasts!]

Perhaps inevitably, he eventually becomes incapable of civilised dealing. Others are forced to resort to confrontation, avoidance or desertion…
  
[Laugh out loud, reader! You've already got a glimpse of their 'civilized dealing'! These beasts actually want to say: "hide our crimes." Anyone with a little wisdom can read their sick minds in denial…]

Vain to the last, he refuses to consider that something may be wrong with himself after all.

[You assume silly things with use of words like seems and may be etc. Where is you 'heap of evidence'? Who is sick, insomniac and on medication, many people know it—and who has altered the documents of Mr. Sulemani that is a court case. Like the communists and Islamists, you commit crimes and then declare the victims lunatics so that no court proceeding is initiated against you—it’s an old and outdated trick now. The circumstances you created for Mr. Sulemani and his family by isolating them in the entire country is horrific—in such a situation others would not have survived, but this courageous writer, with the prayers of his parents and help of siblings has written a new history of surviving oppression and tyranny in the 21st century. Take it from me: you’ve never matured intellectually, and have inherited a personality disorder of which the military establishment especially the rogue guys in the ISI and MI suffer! Genuine psychiatrists, psychologists and social scientists are studying your narcissism that has shut out the entire world! The psycho analysis of your collective behavior in particular the jihad games — your wild dream to create Barelvi Taliban, Shia Taliban and Ismaili Taliban — are really strange. You sons of Dr. Joseph Goebbels! You along with your narcissist boss are destined to meet the fate of the Nazis. Your psychological warfare is a hellfire for yourself in this world!]

He is not a bad person…

[The world knows this very well. Habib Sulemani has a global vision and universal humanistic approach. Thanks for confessing this and refuting your own arguments.]

He is simply incapable of one thing: critical self-reflection…

[His critical self-reflection is evident from his writings. But you’re incapable of critical self-reflection with your ‘God-like’ self-image in this country where Allah, America and Army are your weapons! When he showed you the mirror—it has left you dumb folded as the new generation of Pakistan has become aware of the universalized ideas of Habib Sulemani. You’ve no arguments but just tricky ways of deception, lies and propaganda in a ‘civilized’ and 'politically correct' way! No matter how smartly you play—by making false psycho-analysis of your opponents and manipulation of news and views, you can’t escape the wrath of God and long arm of the law!]

According to Dr Mubarik Haider, this is precisely the ailment Pakistan is suffering from.

[What a trick, see the intro of the report—targeting one person and then generalizing your own assertion as that of a faked expert—what a manipulation—You’ve put your own assertion in the mouth of a speaker, showing him as a medical doctor. Dawn’s columnist Irfan Husain also shamelessly quoted the American-returned writer’s intellectual perception as clinical observations! Such a lie, deception and professional dishonesty is a routine work in the so-called elitists English language newspaper of Pakistan (forget the vernacular press that reportedly covers over 90 percent of the population) but who cares in this terrorized country! Also, the people have short memory! After reading the report, some people have said that it was strange to declare an entire nation 'schizophrenic'; they’ve even doubted the ‘mental’ condition of Dr. Mubarik Haider. Anyway, this incident has exposed the 'yellow' journalism at The Express Tribune and Dawn. “Mr. Sulemani! You’re the conscience of Pakistan,” a senior journalist has said in a message. “But neither I nor my family members are as brave as your family and you. Keep exposing the evildoers.” Now everyone knows about the intellectual dishonesty of a part of our intelligentsia—"their place is not in a media outlet or national organizations but jail—only there any counseling would be fruitful!"]

He presented his diagnosis at a lecture titled “Pakistan: A State on the Crossroads: Causes and Effects” arranged by Pakistan Writer’s Association in collaboration with Radio Power99 and Radio News Network on Friday.

[The word ‘diagnosis’ and topic of the ‘lecture’ say a lot more! The topic is intellectual not medical. We’ve already told you in the previous post that the organizer of the event, Pakistan Writer’s Association, is a fake organization of the so-called Leftists.]

It is hard to disagree with him...

[You attributed something to a speaker and now you agree with your own assertions—people are not fool as you still assume. A naked boy is trying to hide his private parts in a crowd! Now you’re alone in the world. Just read your own piece of shit carefully...what the speaker had said about you and your organizations… The world’s current revulsion is not towards Pakistan but you and your patron secret agencies that have made the 180 million helpless people hostage. You’re destined to self-destruction but Pakistan is safe. Goodbye, you doomed cult waiting for the doomsday!]

Therefore, it's formally requested to the owners of the Express Media Group, especially the Yale-educated rights activist-turned-publisher Bilal Lakhani to suspend The Express Tribune's Executive Editor Muhammad Ziauddin and City Desk Editor Islamabad, Farman Ali, immediately so that an investigation is initiated in a free and fair manner. It's hoped that the publisher will maintain the fine journalistic traditions of The New York Times group in Pakistan.

Similarly, it is requested to Dawn Media Group Chairperson Amber Saigol and Harvard-educated CEO Hameed Haroon (also president of the All Pakistan Newspapers Society) to suspend Editor Dawn Zaffar Abbas (who is also facing allegations of serious crimes) and columnist Irfan Husain, and start an independent investigation into the matter. This is what honest journalism demands in the organization of Mr. Jinnah—the liberal founder of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
