"Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong; they are the ones to attain felicity".

Since Mr Zardari became President of Pakistan his statements and actions are making people nervous and anxious about his mental capacity to act and ability to withstand pressures? He has submitted "˜certificates of mental incapacity in international courts confirming his illnesses', according to Financial Times. It seems Pakistanis need to fight another war of independence against treacherous feudals and mafia ruling 170 millions?

In an interview with Wall Street Journal, published on 4th October 2008, he said, "To his credit, Mr. Zardari' s answer involves more than simply passing around the collection plate. When I ask whether he would consider a free-trade agreement with traditional archenemy India, Mr. Zardari responds with a string of welcome, perhaps even historic, surprises. "India has never been a threat to Pakistan," he says, adding that "I, for one, and our democratic government is not scared of Indian influence abroad."

Instead of moving troops to border India must spare few hundred investigators to investigate Mumbai bombings and murder of Hemant Karkare?

He speaks of the militant Islamic groups operating in Kashmir as "terrorists" -- former President Musharraf would more likely have called them "freedom fighters" -- and allows that he has no objection to the India-U.S. nuclear cooperation pact, so long as Pakistan is treated "at par." "Why would we begrudge the largest democracy in the world getting friendly with one of the oldest democracies in the world?"

Few weeks down the line after the Mumbai Terrorist attack whom many call "˜inside job', President Zardari' s puppet Prime Minister agreed to send ISI chief to India on demand of the Indian Prime Minister at a time when Indians themselves had not completed their own investigation.  He called the violation of Pakistan air space by the fully armed  jets Indian jets in Lahore and Kashmir even before the Indian response?

A senior analyst said, "There seems to be no doubt that President Zardari is on mission to dilute Pakistan? Since he came to power: (a) He ignored and snubbed China (b) he appointed a dodgy character Hussain Haqqani as ambassador to Washington (c) He removed Ambassador Munir Akram from UN mission to be replaced by his crony Hussain Haroon, whoa  failed to represent and state Pakistan's position in the UN? (d) He called Pakistan air space violation by India as technical fault (e) He banned a Pakistani charity without seeking full evidence? It seems that his entire team is full of infected and infiltrated persons that includes  him?  Here is a glimpse of his A- Team though not much different to that of Musharraf; it might be worse as many believe. 

Yousaf Raza Gilani: The media reported on November 28, 2008, that the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh requested the Prime Minister Gilani to send Director General of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) to India for exchange of information in this regard. The Prime Minister accepted the request and said that after working out modalities by both the governments, the ISI chief will visit India at the earliest'.

Like many in President Zaradari's team Prime Minister Gillani comes from a family of collaborators and spies. His ancestors have blood of thousands of people on their hands killed in the name of 'war on terror' during and after 1857. "After conquering Multan in 1848, Major Herbert gave a certificate of 'co-operation' to his family.  In 1859, the British Government gave a certificate and Rs.300 to Syed Noor Shah for his cooperation and support in 1857 British 'war on terror' in India. In 1876 his ancestor Syed Waliat Shah was appointed as honorary magistrate in recognition of his 'loyalties and support'. In 1878 Makhdoom Sadarudin Gillani was appointed as royal courtier in Multan and in 1911 he was specially introduced to the King as 'British loyalist and supporter'. He was also awarded with a golden watch in recognition of his friendship to the crown. From 1922 - 1927, when British were troubled with the Indian political and armed uprisings, like many others Makhdoom Sadaruddin Gilani played his role in bringing 'peace and order'.", wrote Wakel Anjum in his book 'Pharaohs of Politics or 'Siyasat kaa Faroon'.

Ahmed Mukthar the "˜shoe maker' of Pakistan is the most ignorant of the lot in Zardari's team? Ahmed Mukthar reportedly said, Pakistan will not use nuclear weapons in the conventional war with India'. That is a strangest guarantee to the aggressors? While addressing here at Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said war on terror is Pakistan's own battle and it is being fought against an unknown enemy". Well if that is the case then why Pakistan taking money from US?

In response to these idiotic statements PAF air chief said, "The PAF has the capability of intercepting drones but it is for the government and the political leadership of the country to handle the issue bilaterally, diplomatically or militarily," the air chief said while talking to the media. Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mehmud Ahmad said the Pakistan Air Force is fully capable of stopping missile attacks by Predators violating the country's airspace. Some one said about him, "˜if people think you are stupid then you don't have to open your mouth to prove it !

Shah Mahmood Qureshi "“ II, Pakistan's Foreign Minister like Prime Minister Gillani also comes from the family of collaborators and traitors. He is directly responsible for not having appointed Pakistan's envoy to China, removal of Pakistan envoy to UN - Ambassador Munir Akram - with Hussain Haroon. They deliberately let one-sided UNSC resolution passed without any evidence? 

"His ancestor Shah Mahmud"“I, spied for the British against the Sikhs and provided useful information to the British between 1848 "“ 1849 and received land worth Rs1000 and Rs. 1700 pension for life. British declined to pay for the repairs of damage caused their ancestral shrines and poor followers have to pay for the repairs. During the 1857 war he spied for the commissioner and also provided 20,000 horseman and infantry. He himself took part in the "˜war against terror' with his 2500 horsemen with Colonel Hamilton. His son Bhawal Buksh also provided troops a contingent of soldiers with camel to fight in Afghanistan and garlanded by the commissioner in Lahore in 1880.  He was also appointed honorary commissioner and in 1915 they were declared "˜Best fiend of the British Crown", wrote senior journalist Wakeel Anjum. They have been spying and providing recruits to the colonialists and it seems that has not stopped even now? He and others like him should apologise to the nation?

Sherry Rehman: The face and voice of the Zardari Government according to some people, "has her fingers in many foreign pies and parachuted into the heart of the PPP".  Well she said, "˜Pakistan is to comply with UNSC resolutions'. The latest resolution which her government let pass through without even stating position of the "˜State of Pakistan' because the Pakistan ambassador to UN was busy licking Bilawal Zardari' s boots', said some one.

"Pakistan is a responsible member of the international community and is fully cognizant of its obligations to maintaining international security," she said while briefing media persons on the government's compliance with the UN Sanction Committee restrictions on Jamaat-ud-Daawa, she said. Sherry Rehman confirmed the violation of Pakistan air spaces by Indian fighter jets. She said that the Indian Air Force has said that it entered into Pakistan's air spaces by mistake. Quite a strange and big mistake on two locations at the same time by the Indian force? So what is she up to? According to media reports, "˜Her ministry has been providing access to foreign journalists while local journalists were denied? She is the only information minister who gives her cell number to foreign journalists bypassing the information ministry?

Mahmud Ali Durrani National Security Advisor to President Zardari and former ambassador to US has a shadowy past. According to book "˜Masterminds of Air Massacres' by senior defence analyst Commodore Tariq Majeed, "Major General Durrani, in early 1980s, had served as defence attaché in the Pakistan Embassy in Washington under Ambassador Lieutenant General Ejaz Azeem.  During his tenure in Washington he was known to have been an extraordinarily frequent visitor to the US State Department. On return from Washington, Durrani was appointed as Military Secretary to President General Ziaul Haq.  In that capacity he forged such a close relationship with Zia and his family as he was treated almost like a family member.  He remained in that post till 1986. The President trusted him fully.  He promoted him to the rank of major general, although Durrani had not commanded even a brigade. This waiver was an extraordinary case in the Army. General Zia, then, appointed Durrani as GOC in Multan.

At 11:30 pm on the night of 16 August 1988, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 2 Armoured Division, Multan, Major General Mahmud Ali Durrani, telephoned President and Chief of the Army Staff General Ziaul Haq at the Army House in Rawalpindi. Durrani requested the President to confirm he would be coming to Bahawalpur for the tank demonstration.

It seems Pakistanis need to fight another war of independence against treacherous feudals and mafia ruling 170 millions?

Zia received numerous calls from Durrani in this respect. Now he had finally decided to go, and gave the confirmation to Durrani. Immediately after the call, however, General Zia commented to his family members: "Why is Durrani insisting so strongly that I should come to Bahawalpur; does he not know my moods?"

About the same time, General Akhtar Abdul Rahman, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, received a telephone call at his residence, also in Rawalpindi, from Brigadier Imtiaz of the ISI who had been a deputy to General Rahman.  According to the telephone operator at the General's residence, the call continued for about half an hour. What exactly Brigadier Imtiaz confided to General Akhtar could not be determined, but it is on record that immediately after this conversation, General Akhtar asked the operator to connect him to Major General Durrani in Multan.  General Akhtar told Durrani he would also be coming to Bahawalpur, although previously it was not in his plans. Until he talked to Brigadier Imtiaz, General Akhtar Abdul Rahman had been scheduled to travel to Karachi for a meeting with General Rahimuddin, the Governor of Sindh.

General Durrani was in charge of the tank demonstration to be held at Khairpur Tameywali, about 40 kms from Bahawalpur. The US Army was keen to sell its M1A1 tank to the Pakistan Army, which had been surveying a variety of tanks for its needs.  On 10 June 1988, two tanks along with a dozen American tank experts had arrived in Pakistan. During several trials, the Pakistani military experts found the tank to be unsuitable for the Pakistan Army. Then, a final demonstration for 17 August was arranged, and General Zia was advised that with his presence at the demonstration, a final rejection of the tank by the Army would indicate to the Americans that they should stop pressuring Pakistan to opt for the M1A1 tank.

At the end of the demonstration in Khairpur Tameywali, Major General Durrani presented two crates of mangoes to General Ziaul Haq.  This presentation was made at a place where there was no arrangement for screening the mango crates. Since Durrani was considered to be very close to General Zia, the President's bodyguard Naib Subedar Shafique placed these crates in the Puma helicopter, and thus the crates were transferred from the Puma straight into the Aft cargo hold of Pak One, when the Puma landed at the airport. According to another report, four to seven crates of mangoes on General Durrani's instructions were sent from Multan to the Cavalry Mess, in Bahawalpur, where President Zia was to take his lunch.  Durrani had the mango crates delivered to Major General Sarfaraz who made it the responsibility of Major Afzaal of the 323 Field Intelligence Battalion to have the crates placed on board Pak One.  On one occasion a security guard tried to take an investigative look into the crates but Major General Sarfaraz snubbed him, and he moved away. One of the staff members noted that during the transportation of crates from the Cavalry Mess to Pak One, there was a particular crate which Major Afzaal was carrying all the time. He himself placed that crate in a jeep and then from the jeep in Pak One.  All this while, Major Afzaal was also carrying a detector which is used for screening the items meant to be loaded into the plane, and thus he successfully gave the impression to the people around him that he himself was screening these crates!

The two reports differ only about the transportation of the mango crates; otherwise there is no doubt that the crates had been given as a gift to General Zia by Major General Mahmud Ali Durrani.  According to Colonel Ejaz of the FIU the crates were packed with mangoes by Major Saleem and Major Afzaal Mahmood of the 323 Intelligence Battalion, under the supervision of Major General Durrani.  Colonel Ejaz, after the crash, led the team, which gathered and disposed of all the pieces of the crates, the crushed mangoes, their peels and seeds, and various other items, which could leave telltale clues.

However, unknown to him and in spite of his thorough efforts to remove all evidence, five or six half-burnt mango seeds had fallen in bushes about 100 yards from the crash site.  These were later picked up and sent to the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission's PINSTECH Laboratory where various elements such as potassium chloride, phosphorous, etc, were discovered on them. It was learnt, although it could not be confirmed, that Brigadier Imtiaz of the ISI was in Bahawalpur on 15 August and had a meeting with Tariq Bashir Cheema in a village in Yazman Mandi. However, it is known, with evidence, that Brigadier Imtiaz visited Bahawalpur at least twice between August 1 and 16, and met Major General Sarfaraz. During this period, Major General Durrani had three meetings with Major General Sarfaraz, while Lieutenant General Beg twice made contact with Sarfaraz.

According to one witness, Lieutenant Colonel Naeemud Din: "One of the corpses was burning. When it was doused with water to put out the fire, the flames would suddenly rekindle." Actually, the corpse was on fire because of phosphorous. In another development, the qualified Pathologist at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Bahawalpur, had been sent on leave. So, Major Ghulam Rasool from CMH Multan was called.  He reached Bahawalpur late at night. In any case, post-mortem of the bodies had been stopped by the orders of Major General Sarfaraz.

On 22 September, the American team signed on the report. On 25 September, the Pakistani team hosted a dinner for the Americans at a Chinese restaurant in Islamabad. The next day at the American Chancellery, Robert Oakley invited the Pakistanis and the Americans to a cocktail party. After initial formalities, Robert Oakley addressed the Pakistani team and said: "Gentlemen, I have been informed that sabotage is being cited as the real cause of the crash.  We cannot help the dead, but can help the livingTherefore, it will be better that instead of sabotage, technical fault is mentioned as the real cause of the crash.  If that is not done, then your country would be involved in a war with your neighbouring country."

On 18 March 1989, (in the month of Ramazan), there was an Iftar party at the Intelligence School, Guldana Camp, in the hill resort of Ghora Gali. The chief guest at the party was Colonel (retired) Ghulam Sarwar Cheema, who was then Minister of State for Defence [in Ms Bhutto's government].  Group Captain Zaheer Zaidi, being the Commander of the nearby PAF Base, Lower Topa, was also invited to the party. Finding an opportunity, Zaidi mentioned the subject of the inquiry into the C-130 crash to the Minister.  Cheema told him to keep quiet and said that he would come to the Lower Topa Base to talk to him on the subject.  Zaidi, at that time, had no idea that Ghulam Sarwar Cheema was a close relative of Major General Sarfaraz Cheema who had ordered CMH Bahawalpur to stop the post-mortem of the dead bodies.

Ghulam Sarwar Cheema, came to stay as a guest of the PAF Chief at the Lower Topa VIP Guest House, from 5 to 8 May 1989.  During his stay, one day he summoned Group Captain Zaheer Zaidi and said: "Mr, I have brought a message of BB (Benazir Bhutto) to you; it is: (a) It was an act of God, (b) Let the dead sleep peacefully in their graves, (c) Whoever wants to ask anything in this matter should telephone God, (d) You will not say anything on this subject; in future keep your mouth shut."  This was a clear threat to Zaidi. On 19 July 1989, Group Captain Zaheer Zaidi was informed that he was no longer needed at the Lower Topa Base; therefore his services were being placed at the disposal of the Pakistan Navy. Zaidi was transferred on secondment to the Navy, from where he was sent on retirement on 5 August 1991. These questions need to be answered".

Rehman Malik according to press reports "rose to dizzying heights from a lowly grade 13 or 14 officer. Stories of Malik trying to worm his way through by bribing his seniors are still fresh in our minds. Come promotion time, he'd turn up at their homes with trays laden with designer suits. By golly, it worked!" Naseerullah Babar had tried to warn Benazir Bhutto to get a reliable security advisor as her potential murderers would have to come from within her party. He had advised against this third class officer to be part of her security chief. Malik was FIA chief and would report to Babar and his disapproval of Malik can be seen in the quoted article.

He was soon to replace Amin Fahim as Benazir's negotiator with the military and was the primary negotiator of the NRO. He is known to have a lot of money illegally during Benazir's time through corruption and money laundering. He is reportedly linked with foreign agencies.  Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists, which amounted to a direct attack on the ISI. The Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists. The FIA leadership under Bhutto also angered Islamist elements because they allowed the extradited Ramzi Yousaf to the US for trial on the New York Trade Centre Bombing. One of the first acts of President Leghari after dismissing Benazir Bhutto on 05 November 1996 was to imprison the Ghulam Asghar, head of FIA, suspended on non specified corruption charges, and Rehman Malik, Addl. Director General FIA, was also arrested.

The suspicious person with strange antics standing close to BB while she was addressing at Liaqat Baagh, was hired on special recommendation of Rehman Malik. This person, Khalid Shahinshah (now murdered in Karachi) who was personal servant of BB, might have known about the explosion in the advance which could be the reason he rushed into the armoured car before everyone else. According to media reports Rehman Malik is not a register voter in Pakistan being British National. 

Babar Awan: Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs reportedly completed his PhD in one year 1997-1998 by correspondence which according to The News 12th November 2008, "Like a minister of the Musharraf cabinet, a high profile PPP minister has also been found holding a doctorate degree issued by a fake US university declared to be "˜fraud' by an authentic US organisation and fined by a US court. He is not the only genius politician who completed his PhD by email/post in one year?

General Musharaf's Religious Affairs Minister from MQM Amir Liaquat Hussain completed his PhD in Three weeks. Karachi based Urdu Daily "Ummat" reported,  "˜Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain, bought his "Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies" degree (Serial No: P-2002227 Dated March 17, 1995), got his "Master of Arts in Islamic Studies" degree (No: P-2002341 Dated March 15, 2002) and his "Doctor of Philosophy in Islamic Studies" degree (No: P-2002528 Dated April 5, 2002). In what may be a world record worthy of the Guinness Book of Records? He got his Doctorate in just three weeks after his Master's degree, if the documents are to be believed". If it was in any other country people would have resigned by now. According to Dawn British education departments in London couldn't find the college where President Zardari graduated and he himself does not remember what he graduated in? 

"While looking at the profiles and actions of the people in the golden circle of President Zardari it clearly evident that their future lies in Dubai and London because treachery is running in the blood and pimping is not linked to prostitution?," said an analyst.

What Indians must understand that they are victim as well as target of international plot to disintegrate? Keeping in view the US infiltration in both countries it is almost impossible for any one let alone 10 people hold Mumbai hostage without internal and foreign co-operation. Especially the defection of RAW's agents to US/Israel raise many questions.

The Indian home grown Hindu terrorism is bigger threat. In last 10 thousand years there have been three occasions when India was united i.e. Ashoka, Muslim, and British periods. If the Indians go down the war route 360 million Indians who has nothing to wear and no where to sleep would definitely revolt apart from the flattening of Indian foreign investment and cities? Peace should be the way forward as well as full internal investigation of what happened in Mumbai. Instead of moving troops to border India must spare few hundred investigators to investigate Mumbai bombings and murder of Hemant Karkare?
