The myth of Pakistan military spending

The Terrorland Report 

THOSE of you, who have read an earlier post, Fall of Qaddafi — tragic lesson for ambitious military-men, among others, there was a dialogue between one Shahid Khan and an Admin of The Terrorland’s Facebook page. After publication of that post, Mr. Khan has again raised some points especially about Pakistan’s defense spending, which has been remained a myth in our militarized Islamic Republic.

Officially, the defense spending is about 30 percent of the national budget but experts and government officials claim that it's about 80 percent.

Pakistan, giving example of rival India, officially increased defense spending by about 12 percent for the fiscal year 2011-12. Thus the defense allocation was increased from Rs444.2 billion to Rs495.2 billion on June 3, 2011.

But just few days after this announcement in the Parliament, the military spending was further increased silently... and since then, sources claim, countless times it has been increased in the name of operations in Balochistan and tribal areas etc.

Anyway, the chat between the Admin and respected commentator makes an interesting read. Here it goes:

Shahid Khan: hmmm terrorland...all my posts were to prove one point...on your page i read that you are not against Army and you want things to go in right direction....purpose of my post was to prove it as wrong and i have successfully proved that you are against army....and you deserve the condition in which you are now....cunning..coward and sick minded duffers....?????lol and plz read something and carry out some research before posting anything....80% budget....you aint in your senses....plz no need to reply back....i really know who you are...and what you want...bye bye cry baby

The Terrorland: Lol, what a self-righteous ISI-ISPR representative... that 80 % budget estimate has been conformed by experts and representative civilians who were part of governments on different occasions. They say the ministries of finance, foreign affairs and information are virtually in the hands of the generals of the Pakistan Army since long, no matter who is in power. 

BTW, tell us who we are? Well you are talking about the 19-month solitary-confinement of journalist Habib Sulemani... remember, he has been declared the "conscience of Pakistan" as he along with his family members is suffering for the liberation of the over 184 million people of this terrorized country. But you gang of terrorists in the guise of PATRIOTS… be ready for the eternal suffering -- punishment from God and International Criminal Court...!! 

And finally, think it objectively after taking a cold glass of water: are you not a living example of the cunning, coward and sick-minded duffers? I hope you will find the answer in the affirmative. The ISI-ISPR as a part of their 'brinkmanship' created a song against the Pakistan Army to get rid of Gen Musharraf... and now this piece of music is backfiring like an atomic bombshell.

  2. Dr. A.Q. Khan licks the boot of generals in this ISI-written piece in Urdu daily Jang. he says some journalists have started jihad against Pakistan Army


  3. A previous unknown complex has been identified in Syria that supports suspicions that the government allegedly worked with Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, founding father of Pakistan’s nuclear progamme, to acquire technology that could make atomic bomb, AP news agency reported.

    According to the news agency, the buildings closely match the design of a uranium enrichment plant provided to Libya when Moammar Qadhafi was trying to build nuclear weapons allegedly under Khan’s guidance.

    The report said the UN investigators also have obtained alleged correspondence between Khan and a Syrian official. The Syrian proposed cooperation and a visit to Khan’s laboratories, it said.

    The agency asserted that the details were provided to it by a senior diplomat and a former UN investigator, adding that both spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.


  4. The Pakistan military's annual defense budget amounts to nearly half of all tax revenues, which should be scrutinized by parliament or the Auditor General of Pakistan. http://www.thefridaytimes.com/beta2/tft/article.php?issue=20120106&page=1

  5. Pakistan Army is not having budget of 80% but they are having only 6 billion USD budget. 80% budget claims are totally false and senseless.
