PTI – Seriously Overrated

A fashion symbol , networking opportunity, safe association & the right thing to do. This is what everyone think about PTI . For me it is a little different . For me it is like an old wine in a new bottle , group of people who never had a political identity in the past , refuge for ousted leaders and just another washing machine of your past political sins. You may differ but this is my opinion and would try to elaborate.

I don’t hate the party but I very well despise it . The main reason is their leader is not clear for his own life’s direction. Like he claims that he is a world cup winner but do were the other players in the team, so is Younis Khan as well. Also let’s not forget we have remained hockey and squash champions but did their captains encashed . No! He is the only leader who used it for his advantage.

Then he built a cancer hospital with our money. Even I contributed at that time as a Tiger. But then 2 decades later I found him using this as a political tool to explain his prowess and by the way . Karachi still awaits a similar set up. Karachi’s sons like Abdul Sattar Edhi , Ansar Burney and Shehzad Roya and many more hold strong serving the country but do they desire their political right . No! As their objective is still to serve the people not the quest for power. If his theory is right than why not Mother Teressa in India ran for PM though similar issues exist across the border and for me Edhi Sb has most of the right in that case.

Then he went to marry a beautiful English woman not finding any one suitable here. Bore two children and decided to move on. No problem it’s his personal life but what’s the guarantee that Jemima’s interference in Pakistani politics would be limited. I still remember her tting on October 30th on the stage as what? Is she a new Sonia Gandhi of this country?

Then he found alliances with Gen Musharraf , Nawaz Sharif , Fazlur Rehman and even JI . This topsy turvy political ride and his flirtation in politics and U turns every few years let me think whether his political acumen is that strong? Today he conveniently points fingers towards Pervaiz Musharraf but yet take his party stalwarts under his wings and also some of his policies.

I still do not understand whether his party is Islamist , leftist or some thing new? he conveniently picks up all popular issues and chides about it without realizing that though he maintains a neutral populist position but then if he ever come in power which side he would be on and whether he would deliver. The only position he has clearly maintained is his support for Talibans. Means does he want a Talibanized Pakistan or a moderate Pakistan? Since he can’t have both at the same time domestically as well as internationally as the world community wants though a stable but a moderate Pakistan. Further, his proximity with JI . Does he denounce the incursions in Kashmir? If not how would he bring peace with India as his recently Vision talks about. I wonder why India would negotiate without him distancing himself from both Kasmiri Mujahideen and Talibans both of whom are thorns for India and the region.

He hates US and UK but still invests his endowment funds there and also take donations from there. Wonder if these nations are good to deal with his charities why not Pakistan then? Think if he distances himself once he comes In power. Wouldn’t his charities would also get effected? Another of a no clear policy.

He talks about breaking cartels and hegemony of establishment but yet conveniently takes feudals , retired private sector high fliers and beaurucrats in his cadres. Aren’t these are the same guys who established this situation in the first place. Blaming all on politicians and absolving these people. Is this fair?

Lastly before I end this opinion . I would dare to say that his vision which I would like to expedite upon in the future ignore key factors like how would he find cheaper power? Ignoring the importance of hub of Pakistani economics? Regional economic crisis and most importantly how would he end this war in Pakistan? If his idea to enter a truce with Talibans then he would give Pakistan in their hands which would isolate us more and than spit on those who sacrificed.

Anyways, looks like we never learn and want shortcuts in life. For me PTI is nothing more than a hogwash. Good luck & Pakistan Zindabad

Was Jinnah A Shia Or A Sunni?

By : Khaled Ahmed

After 1947, Pakistan adopted the position of denying that the population of the country was divided between Shias and Sunnis, among others. The census that followed took account of Muslims and non-Muslims but ignored the sects: it was also an indirect pledge of the state that it would not discriminate on the basis of sect. The founder of the state, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, although himself a Twelver Shia after conversion from the Ismaili sect, was wont to describe himself in public as neither a Shia nor a Sunni. His stock answer to a query about his sect was: was Muhammad the Prophet [pbuh] a Shia or a Sunni? Yet when he died in 1948, it was necessary for his sister Miss Fatima Jinnah to declare him a Shia in order to inherit his property as per Jinnah’s will. (Sunni law partially rejects the will while Shia law does not.) She filed an affidavit, jointly signed with the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Liaquat Ali Khan, at the Sindh High Court, describing Jinnah as ‘Shia Khoja Mohamedan’ and praying that his will may be disposed of under Shia inheritance law. The court accepted the petition. But on 6 February 1968, after Miss Jinnah’s demise the previous year, her sister Shirin Bai, moved an application at the High Court claiming Miss Jinnah’s property under the Shia inheritance law on the ground that the deceased was a Shia. Given the prestige of Miss Jinnah, she was allowed to dispose of all the property of her brother (as a Sunni she would have title to only one-half) and continued to do so till her death. After her death her sister Shirin Bai arrived in Karachi from Bombay, converted from Ismailism to Twelver Shiism, and laid claim to Jinnah’s property. It is at this point that the rest of Jinnah’s clan, still following the Ismaili faith, decided to challenge the authenticity of Jinnah’s Shia faith. The High Court, which had earlier accepted Miss Jinnah’s petition, now balked at the prospect of declaring the Father of the Nation a Shia. Needless to say, the case is still pending in Karachi. But Miss Jinnah’s conduct showed that she was an observing Shia and took her brother’s conversion to Twelver Shiism seriously. Why had Jinnah converted? It develops that he did it on his secular principle of freedom of religion. According to court’s witness, Syed Sharifuddin Pirzada, Jinnah broke from the Ismaili faith in 1901 after his two sisters, Rehmat Bai and Maryam Bai, were married into Sunni Muslim families. It appears that this happened because the Ismaili community objected to these marriages. It also appears that the conversion to Isna-Ashari (Twelver) Shiism happened in Jinnah’s immediate family, and not in the families of his two paternal uncles, Walji and Nathoo.

The court proceedings bear evidence of the last rites observed by Miss Jinnah immediately after her brother’s death. Witness Syed Anisul Hasnain, a Shia scholar, deposed that he had arranged the ghusl (last bath) of Jinnah on the instructions of Miss Jinnah. He led his namaz-e janaza (funeral prayer) in a room of the GovernorGeneral’s House at which such Shia luminaries as Yusuf Haroon, Hashim Raza and Aftab Hatim Alavi were present, while Liaquat Ali Khan, a Sunni, waited outside the room. After the Shia ritual, the body was handed over to the state, and Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Usmani, a breakaway alim of the Deobandi school of thought who supported Jinnah’s Pakistan Movement but had recently apostatised the Shias, led his janaza (funeral) according to the Sunni ritual at the ground where a grand mausoleum was later constructed. Other witnesses confirmed that after the demise of Miss Fatima Jinnah, clam and panja (two Shia symbols) were discovered at Mohatta Palace, her residence.

Witnesses appearing at the Sindh High Court in 1968 to affirm Jinnah’s sect were Mr I.H. Ispahani, a family friend of Jinnah and his honorary secretary in 1936, and Mr Matloobul Hassan Syed, the Quaid’s private secretary from 1940 to 1944. Mr Ispahani revealed that Jinnah had himself told him in 1936 that he and his family had converted to Shiism after his return from England in 1894. He said that Jinnah had married Ruttie Bai, the daughter of a Parsi businessman according to the Shia ritual during which she was represented by a Shia scholar of Bombay, and Jinnah was represented by his Shia friend, Raja Sahib of Mahmudabad. (Raja Sahib was a close friend of Jinnah but differed completely from him in his belief. He was a devout follower of the Twelver Shia faith and ultimately chose to migrate from an independent India to Najaf in Iraq. His friendship with Jinnah has puzzled many.

Apparently, the only bond they had was of the Shia faith.) He, however, conceded that Jinnah was opposed in the Bombay elections by a Shia Conference candidate. Ispahani was present when Miss Fatima Jinnah died in Karachi in 1967. He himself arranged the ghusl and janaza for her at Mohatta Palace according to the Shia ritual before handing over the body to the state. Her Sunni namaz-e janaza was held later at the Polo Ground, after which she was buried next to her brother at a spot chosen by Ispahani inside the mausoleum. Ritualistic Shia talgin (last advice to the deceased) was done after her body was lowered into the grave. (Jinnah had arranged for talgin for Ruttie Bai too when she died in 1929).

Fatima Jinnah’s own funeral became something of a theatre of the absurd after her friends had given her a Shia funeral before the state could give her a Sunni one. Field Marshal Ayub Khan writes in his Diaries:

11 July 1967: Major General Rafi, my military secretary, returned from Karachi. He had gone there to represent me at Miss Jinnah’s funeral. He said that sensible people were happy that the government had given her so much recognition, but generally the people behaved very badly. There was an initial namaz-e janaza at her residence in Mohatta Palace in accordance, presumably, with Shia rites. Then there was to be namaz-e janaza for the public in the Polo Ground. There an argument developed whether this should be led by a Shia or a Sunni. Eventually, Badayuni was put forward to lead the prayer. As soon as he uttered the first sentence the crowd broke in the rear. Thereupon he and the rest ran leaving the coffin high and dry. It was with some difficulty that the coffin was put on a vehicle and taken to the compound of the Quaid’s mazar, where she was to be buried. There a large crowd had gathered and demanded to converge on the place of burial. This obviously could not be allowed for lack of space. Thereupon, the students and the goonda elements started pelting stones on the police. They had to resort to lathi charge and tear gas attack. The compound of the mazar was apparently littered with stones, Look at the bestiality and irresponsibility of the people. Even a place like this could not be free of vandalism.

Who was the “TIGER” – The Untold Story Behind The Ban On ‘Ek Tha Tiger’

Ek Tha Tiger is a 2012 Bollywood romantic action thriller film starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. In the movie Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan is the officer of research and analysis wing (RAW), India’s external intelligence agency and called Tiger in his codename.

Family of Ravindra Kaushik have claimed that the storyline of the famous Bollywood flick “Ek Tha Tiger” released in the year 2012 was based on the life of Ravindra and asked for the credit in the movie titles for Ravindra. WHO WAS RAVINDRA?

Ravindra Kaushik was a former RAW agent who was caught and jailed in Pakistan where he eventually died. Ravinder Kaushik was born in Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan on April 11, 1952. He was contacted and offered a job for being an undercover agent of India in Pakistan. At the age of 23, he was sent to Pakistan on a mission. Sunnat (circumcision) was performed on him to show him as a Muslim.

In 1975 he was sent to Pakistan and given the name Nabi Ahmed Shakir. He succeeded in getting admission in Karachi University and completed his LLB. He joined Pakistan Army and become a commissioned officer and later was promoted to the rank of a Major. He married a local Pakistani girl ‘Amanat’, and became father of a girl.

From 1979 to 1983, while in military service, he passed on valuable information to RAW which was of great help to the Indian defence forces.

He was given the title of ‘Black Tiger’ by India’s then home minister S.B. Chavan. Some testify that the title was conferred by then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi.

On 21 November 2001, he succumbed to pulmonary tuberculosis and heart disease in New Central Jail Multan. He was buried behind that jail.

Umpire Asad Rauf Claims He Is Innocent, He Didn’t Promise

ICC elite panel umpire Asad Rauf of Pakistan on Tuesday denied he was in a relationship with Bollywood starlet Leena Kapoor or had promised to marry her. Rauf, 56, conceded that Kapoor was an “acquaintance”.

Kapoor complained to police on Monday that Rauf, whom she met in Sri Lanka six months ago and exchanged phone numbers with, had gone back on his promise to marry her. “I do remember the girl. She was keen to be part of the Bigg Boss TV show and wanted me to put in a word for her,” Rauf told The Indian Express over the phone from Pakistan.

“I don’t remember where I met her,” Rauf said. “During our travels around the world and at the Indian Premier League parties we meet a number of fans and people in the show business. They request you for pictures and we oblige.” A picture of Rauf and Kapoor, with the starlet leaning heavily against the umpire with an arm around his neck, appeared in the Mumbai tabloid Mid-Day Tuesday.

Kapoor insisted Rauf had betrayed him. “How can he put me in a television show? He is lying. After the shoot of my movie Lender got over in March, I went to a resort in Sri Lanka with friends, where I met him,” she said. “He told me that he would marry me but now he doesn’t even recognise me.”

Rauf had officiated in two Tests between Sri Lanka and England in Colombo and Galle between March 26 and April 7. The former first-class cricketer and popular umpire has been on the elite panel for eight years. He said he was prepared to face an inquiry over Kapoor’s allegation.

“Out of my 10,000 followers on Facebook, 99 per cent are from India,” he said. “If there is any truth in what this girl is saying, and in case she has some concrete evidence, I am ready to come down to India to be questioned.”

Let’s Paint Our Flag Black, We Don’t Deserve Both White and Green

Going through the piece “Let’s paint our flag green, we don’t deserve white” written by Zahra Pir MuhammadI felt as if she is talking my heart. She molded my feelings in her words. The incident, 60 Hindu families are halted by the Govt. to leave the country, gives a glimpse how the persecution of minorities continues. To be honest it is not only the minorities who are being persecuted, everyone with an opinion difference from mainstream is treated the same way. Perhaps

it was the voice of many that I dropped the idea of posting my comment after reading comments of others. I decided to write more lines then a comment should have, just to highlight extreme grievances unveiled in other’s comments. Ghulam raza of Hazara Community shares his feelings:

I my self belongs to a minority community i.e Hazara living in quetta we are being treated brutally by terrorists organization and the Gov has let them free handed to continue their brutality towards us. when a motherland fails to provide security to her natives its horrific believe in me its horrific. when i was at school i used to have lots of patriotism, used to take money from my mother to buy green badge of Pakistan but now it has been significantly decreased because of the insecurity we are feeling. our lives which are the most valuable properties of the human beings are in danger so how we can bother about other things of lives.

Malik Achakzai revealing the horrible facts from Balochistan:

Am belonging to Balochistan, every day the Hindos, Bhais, Ahmedis and others are abducted for the ransom. In Quetta a female Niloper Fareedoon Abadan, a trader from Quetta city was kidnapped and released after 9 months, in her press conference she told, “One from the two key posting guys were involved in my abduction”. That was a clear gesture to Governor house and Chief Minister house. Currently, have covered a story about the abduction in Quetta, arranged by the political parties, civil societies, lawyers, doctors, students and the cute children from school, who were chanting against the government of the province, it’s ministers, law-enforcement agencies responsible of the abducting cases, one of the participant Olas Yar a university student explained the circumstances as, “If the interior minister of the province is openly announcing that some of the cabinet members are involved in the abduction cases, then who will be thinking of peace and justice”. Qalat a Baloch populated city is currently having four of the Hindos abducted, before them Kilash Narth Kohli a lawyer from Supreme court was abducted and was released after his family paid to the ferocious, inhuman and what more adjectives should I put here?…. So how can we demonstrate that International Community is putting Pakistan in the ranking countries that violate the rights of minorities?

The lines above are clearly revealing what is happening in the country & who is responsible for all this, but some people too naïve to realize the seriousness of the situation believes that: MUHAMMAD OMAR is concerned only about Muslims’ Killings:

I would only say, killing of Muslims at different times in different incidents doesn’t permit anyone to kill minorities.

Ovais believes that:

there is only one problem in pakistan according to ET and that is minorities , widen your horizons ,people die because of poverty , target killing etc Pakistani Nationalist doesn’t care if minorities leave Pakistan for good: Blame those miscreants who do bad to minorities not the whole Muslim nation of Pakistan…More Muslims are being killed in Pakistan thn Hindus or other minorities..If they wanna leave Pakistan thn its dere choice..Pakistan is being made for Muslims anyway

Noman Ansari have some good advice:

AK learnt that:

First minorities and then you will turn to each other. Once the game of hate and prosecution is started, it doesn’t stop.

I personally agree with Mr. Aziz Ali, if we can’t tolerate we shouldn’t claim either white or green! He suggests “Lets Paint our Flag Black we don’t deserve both white or Green.”

May I Ask Mr. Imran Khan?

No wonder, Pakistani politicians are used to issue such reckless statements to give cover to their political moves or policies. In a recent statement after the terrorist’s attack on PAF Base Minhas, Kamra, PTI (Movement for Jusitce) chief Imran Khan has said:

“Though, Pakistan army is planning a military offensive against Taliban and other militant groups in North Waziristan, today’s attack on Pakistani airbase might be its reaction from the militants.”

May I ask Mr. Imran Khan that a “Reaction” is always the response of some “Action” then how is it possible that in absence of any “Action” of Pakistan Army in Waziristan or in any other area of the country, the attack on PAF Base would be termed as a “Reaction”?

Isn’t your statement a blatant attempt to provide cover to Taliban’s Terrorists ‘Actions’? At least you have admitted the presence of Taliban terrorists in Waziristan & have witnessed their Anti-Pakistan action & aggression yourself.

Imran Khan a cricketer-turned-politician could not succeed in 16 years of his political career. He hardly could secure the only seat for PTI from his hometown, Mianwali in 2002 General Elections. It was only after 30th October 2011 when his party could manage to hold big rallies & brought itself into main stream politics. Credit goes to the ‘Hidden Hands’ for this, analysts claim. Despite claiming to be a Centre Right & Progressive Political Party, PTI is always considered to be a Right Wing Group and Imran Khan himself is known as “Taliban Khan” due to covert support of Taliban Militants in Pakistan.

Pakistan, being the front line state in the US & NATO led war against terror, is paying heavy price for its commitments. At one side it is being labeled as the terrorist’s safe heaven at other side it is the prime target & victim of worst terrorism by the same terrorists for whom it has earned a bad name.

Recently US Congress has passed a bill declaring Haqqani Network a terrorist outfit & demanding Pakistan to launch an operation against it in its tribal areas. President Obama has endorsed the bill making it a law. Now it would be correct to say Pakistan has been asked to chase its own tail.

Now, Pakistan has only two options:

Launch offensive against all sort of Extremist/Terrorist/Militant/Jihadi outfits across the country & save itself from the consequences; or Use delay tactics to avoid any such operation, resulting in more terrorism, attacks & damages, which could lead the world to give it the status of a rogue state. Perhaps there is no third option, the destiny has been written, the war has begun, only wisdom needed to read what is written on the walls. Pakistan either continues to deny the existence of Pakistani & Afghani militant outfits in its territories, or launch a complete offensive against all banned or supported groups for its own sake & to clear its position.

I strong believe, in response to this coward & terrorist ‘Action’ of Taliban, Pakistan Army should show strong ‘Reaction’. May be the time has come for Pakistan to get rid of its excess baggage.

JI’s Ex-Leader and Taliban Operative Killed In Drone Attack

Jamaat-i-Islami has perhaps suffered the first drone casualty as its former student leader was killed in the US pilotless aircraft attack along with his wife near Miramshah town in North Waziristan Agency last Monday (August 20).

JI chief in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and former Senator Professor Mohammad Ibrahim Khan confirmed Raja Ahsan Aziz and his family’s association with the party but didn’t provide details.

“Raja Ahsan had been with mujahideen (holy worriers) in North Waziristan Agency since long. I don’t know more about his background,” he said.

Sources close to Raja said he had been associated with the Taliban since 2002.

Former JI chief Qazi Hussain Ahmad and other leaders of the party on Thursday rushed to Azad Kashmir and attended Raja’s funeral prayers in absentia.

According to locals, Raja was killed after a CIA-operated drone fired missiles on a house in Shna Khwara area on Miramshah-Datakhel Road on August 20. They said the house was constructed in a forest covered area adjacent to a seminary.

Raja, his wife and four people died and four suffered injures in the strike. According to reports, Raja belonged to Mirpur in Azad Kashmir and had been living with family in North Waziristan since long.

By profession, he was engineer and completed his graduation from Mirpur Engineering University in 1996. He had served as nazim (head) of Islami Jamiat Talba, student wing of JI in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, between 1993 and 1995.

He later became member of the IJT shura (council). His father, Abdul Aziz, who had served in Pakistan Navy, was also elected president of JI, Mirpur district.

In the past, key Al Qaeda figures were arrested at the houses of the people, who were or remained active activists of JI or its affiliated bodies.

According to reports, Al Qaeda top leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was arrested at the house of former JI leader Farzana Qudoos in Rawalpindi, while two Al Qaeda suspects were taken into custody during a raid on the house of JI leader in Karachi.

Qazi Hussain insisted that Raja was not member of the party though his father, Abdul Aziz, and other family members were its very active workers.

“Raja remained in Islami Jamiat Talba long before, but presently he had no association with the party,” he said.

The former JI chief said his party considered all those killed by drones ‘martyrs’. He said it was the state’s responsibility to stop foreign aggression and provide protection to its people.

When asked what Raja was doing in North Waziristan Agency when he belonged to Azad Jammu and Kashmir, he replied: “I don’t want to go into this debate.”

However, a security analyst, who wished not to be named, said the JI-affiliated groups had sufficient presence in tribal areas, where they were playing a very active role.

He said the party disassociated itself from activists taking part in cross-border insurgency in order to avoid criticism or dispel the impression of its direct ties with such organisations.

Quaid-e-Azam Had Left Ismaili Sect and Adopted Shia Twelver Sect

(August 22) A delegation of intellectuals called upon MQM Founder and Leader Mr Altaf Hussain at the International Secretariat of the party in London. The delegation asked several questions from Mr Hussain about his recent statement regarding Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Mr Hussain listened to the questions with patience.

In response to a question regarding the religious persuasion and creed of the Quaid-i-Azam, Mr Hussain said that all the students of history should note it down that it was proven from historical facts that the founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam earlier belonged to Ismaili sect. But in 1898, he had submitted an affidavit in a magistrate court in Bombay in which he had deposed that his family had always been Ismaili but he and his sister Fatima were adopting the Shia Twelver sect by leaving the Ismailia sect. The complete details of this matter, along with the case number, can be found in the book “Quaid as I knew him” by Abul Hassan Ispahani, who was a close associate of the Quaid-i-Azam.

Mr Hussain said that it was also an undeniable historical fact that the Quaid-i-Azam was a member of the Khoja community and he used to give donations to the community on a regular basis. When the Quaid-i-Azam died in 1948, his body was washed by Haji Kallu Khan who also belonged to the Khoja Twelver sect. He was specially nominated by the Khoja community for giving ritual ablutions to the body of the Quaid-i-Azam.

Two separate funeral prayers were offered for the Quaid-i-Azam. The first funeral prayer was offered at his home by Maulana Aneesul Hasnain according to the Shia creed while the second funeral prayer was offered by Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani.

Mr Hussain said that the government, the defence institutions and everyone else should understand that it was evident from the historical facts that the founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah belonged to the Khoja Twelver sect. Hence killing innocent people on their being Shia was, in fact, equal to killing the Quaid-i-Azam and the killing of the Quaid-i-Azam was the same as killing Pakistan.

JI Amir Munawwar Hassan Criticized Quaid-e-Azam

Lahore: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Syed Munawar Hasan has given the taunting statement against Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and targeted him for a secular personality.

Munawar has said that base-coins in the pocket of the Quaid e Azam and their progeny caused the fall of the nation. Pakistan was the first ideological state that came into being on the basis of Islamic ideology but the civil, military and technocrats’ regimes during the last 65 years had tried to deprive it of its ideological character and make it a secular state.

He was addressing the concluding ceremony of the 33rd Tafseer-e-Quran course at Mansoora masjid. He said that so far, the country had been run by the people educated at westernized elite schools who neither accepted Islam as a system of life nor allowed it to prosper in the country. These rulers had always been looking up to the US for policy making.

Stop Killing My Shiite Brothers – A Sunni’s Plea

I wonder, what is the difference between me and my Shiite Brothers which makes me sacred & my blood worthy and their blood worthless for some people? Doesn’t we belong to the same human race for which the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) had said, “Killing a human is as if we killed all of the humanity” then why my Shiite Brothers have to suffer continues genocide? Does ego & personal opinion counts more then the clear instructions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) that a person ignoring all the teachings of Islam start killing others considering it right?

Last Friday, the 22nd Ramadan 1433 Hijri, Shiite Processions had been organized all over the country with reference to the Martyrdom of Hazrat Ali (R.A.). In Karachi, some un-identified gun man opened fire at the Procession near Bolton Market of Kharadar area leaving three injured. Law Enforcement Agencies in turn did aerial firing. People started protesting & pelting stones on Rangers/Police vehicles. The peaceful procession turned to a violent protest. Leaders of ‘Shiite Ulema Council’ & ‘Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen’ controlled the situation. This attempt would be linked to ongoing Shiite Genocide.

Let us have a look at Shiite Genocide only this year, many similar incidents across the country have been reported wherein terrorists segregated Shiite Muslim Passengers from Sunnis & killed them cold blooded. In Mustung, Kohistan & Chilas eye witness have reported the same process of segregating Shiites from Sunnis & killing them after lining-up. The incident of April 03rd in Chilas unveiled the terrorists as the operatives of Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), a banned militant/terrorist outfit currently working as Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal-Jamat (ASWJ). Only in last 06 months more then 300 Shiites have been reported murdered.

One may ask where the Law Enforcement Agencies are when genocide of such a level is being done. The Asian Human Rights Commission responds to this question stating, “PAKISTAN: The killing of Shias – it is hard to refute the accusation that the military was involved – February 29, 2012.”


There are clear indications that if not Army/ISI then someone linked with them is involved in this ongoing genocide. All the recent incidents of Shiite Killings in Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa & Balochistan have happened near military or para-military areas. In Kohistan District of KPK the men who attacked and killed 18 Shiites were in Pak Army’s uniform & it is hard to roam around with weapons or to be in Uniform without the permission/knowledge of Army in these areas.

In Pakistan, Shiite Killings is not a new phenomenon. We may find its roots back in General Ayub’s regime when more then 100 Shiites were martyred just in one day. In General Zia-ul-Haq era formation of extremist militant outfits & ISI’s support to them amplified the genocide. Post Soviet-Afghan war era was more disastrous not only for Pakistan but also for Shiite Community. After finding it hard to continue their Jihadi Agenda in Afghanistan & Kashmir the monster made their way back in Pakistan and have waged their Jihad against Shiites, Ahmadis, Brailvis, Christians & Hindus even against liberal Deobandis & Salafis who do not agree their terrorists line of action. Initially the Shiite ethnic cleansing had been tried to portray as Shiite-Sunni ethnic violence, thanks to PPP & MQM who have exposed the conspiracy by uniting both the sects.

The conspiracy to malign Sunnis for Shiite killings has been exposed. Despite attempts to cover those people everyone now know the real culprits. Keeping the danger in view country is facing, isn’t it the right time to stop killing Shiite Brothers and get rid of all such sectarian & ethnic divides?

SKMH Scandal: Who Will Suffer Eventually?

Earlier this week serious allegations of financial mismanagement and money laundering has been leveled upon Shoukat Khanum Memorial Hospital (SKMH) & its management by Khuwaja Asif of PMLN wherein Asif revealed that the public’s funds in shape of Zakat, Fitrana, Sadqat & donations were used for real state gambling in Middle East & the funds were transferred through a Company owned by one of the board members of SKMH Imtiaz Haideri.

Khuwaja Asif further stated that a Shell Company was first registered in British Virgin Islands, which transferred the money into a company HBG in Dubai. HBG bought the shares of a company Sugarland worth $3 million. During the year 2009-2010 Sugarland declared losses. Asif claimed that SKMH also suffered losses of about 64% of the total investments but it is not shown on the balance sheet of SKMH. A fact sheet was also distributed to the media persons by the PMLN leader showing that $4.5 million were invested in total.

This press conference prompted PTI leader Imran Khan for a rebuttal wherein he rejected all the allegations. In his press conference Khan denied that money was transferred from Pakistan, or that the funds invested in off-shore Company was of Sadqaat, Fitrana or Zakat. It was the public’s donations which we received from overseas Pakistanis, kept in Endowment Fund of SKMH & the same money was used for investment in real state, Imran Khan mentioned.

Irrespective of the nature of money if it is Sadqaat, Fitrana, Zakat or was donated by overseas Pakistanis as charity to SKMH, the point is it was meant for the Cancer Patients for their treatment in Pakistan or to be invested in Endowment Fund of SKMH to meet its future expenses. Imran Khan couldn’t mention the name of the Shareholders, Board of Directors & the management of the said Company in British Virgin Islands, HBG of Dubai & Sugarland which also shadowed the whole business.

Khuwaja Asif once again alleged Imran Khan that those working in SKMH are either Imran Khan’s close friends or family members. They are all real state businessmen or collecting donations he mentioned.

Replying to a question of the host in a TV program Imran Khan angrily mentioned, “I don’t know who the other directors or shareholders are in above mentioned companies, I only know that Mr. Imtiaz Haidery is a trustworthy man & is working with SKMH for decades. I wish if Mr. Khan would have had think about his party members who have worked with PMLN, PPP or PMLQ for years & now are with PTI. The host also highlighted this point.

We have their guarantee on a letterhead, said Imran Khan, that all profits are for us & losses are for them”. Perhaps Khan doesn’t know such a letter head is not a guarantee at all. Perhaps the Financial Managers at SKMH also don’t know about the difference b/w a Letter of Guarantee & a Letter of Comfort. Even someone from SKMH’s management also admitted that “Yes investing in such a way was our mistake”!

I don’t know whom to blame, Imran Khan for his ignorance, SKMH’s management for their wrong investments or Khuwaja Asif of PMLN on disclosing such issue on a wrong time. What I know is SKMH have lost huge amount of public donations & the poor Cancer Patients will suffer eventually.

PkSF (Pakhtoon Students Federation) A Student Wing or Terror Group of ANP In Academic Institutions

Karachiites are disturbed by the activities and damages being caused to education system by the followers of this so called students’ wing of ANP. The common people inKarachiare really shocked with the only one criminal activity from many being highlighted by media in last two days. The common people inKarachihave seen breaking news by media that some students have attacked on the principal and staff ofNationalCollege. But they do not know that media is not identifying the real culprits in this case.

There are other terrorizing activities taking place under the umbrella of PkSF. You visit the Intermediate Board inKarachi, you will be shocked to observe that more than 200 young boys (who are even not students) present in intermediate board. You park your vehicle in the boundary of BIEK and you will be robbed with Rs. 20 to 50 on account of parking fee which is not charged by BIEK in its premises. This amount is forcibly taken from you. If you will dare to refuse you will be served with kicks and blows in the presence of Police and so called LEA (our dear Rangers personnel). You proceed for next step and try to get form from the bank you will be asked to pay Rs. 50 plus with form fee by these boys. Follow the instruction will be saved; otherwise be prepared to face consequences.

Most of the senior teachers are advised by BIEK staff not to visit board because any thing can happen in the premises of BIEK. Forcing students and parents (especially female) to pay more than the allocated fee in BIEK is not enough, there are other shameful activities taking place in the same BIEK premises. In last month, when a father and his son was killed in Katti Pahari Hotel firing by the step sons, these criminals have attacked those who went BIEK for getting forms or collecting certificates. The female students were specially targeted and a few of them were physically disrespected by so called PkSF kai gairat mand Bachay.

The shameful attack on female students by PkSF in BIEK, Karachiites are asking questions, where is the forth pillar of state, media? Why a Government property is captured and Bhatta is being collected in day light is un-resisted besides Police or Rangers being posted there??

InGovernment Ship-owners College, students are regularly attacked and assaulted by so called PkSF in the college premises. Teachers are quite only to save their life. Same is the case of Government National College,Gulshan College,Swedish College and other colleges. Federal Urdu University of Science in Gulshan-e-Iqbal remains under constant threat of attack by students of PkSF.

In B.Com examination at KU, the attack on those students who were writing their exam in the presence of Rangers is also an example from many.

Conclusion is that in Karachi, teaching and learning activities are being further suffocated by PkSF. The so called PkSF being protected by the criminal gangs of ANP have destroyed Swedish Institute, FUUAST, Ship-owner College, National College and many others.

Karachiites must open their eyes that whatever language they speak, their educational institutions are being terrorized and destroyed by these gangsters. The students ofKarachiare unable to go these places for study. Thanks to PkSF!!!!!!!!!!

Role of Welfare Organization For Social Well Beings of The Poor & Destitute

It is well known fact on international level that citizen of Karachi are generous donors for the causes of social balance in Society. Its citizen has been donating to religious, welfare organizations and NGOs in the name of Jihad, resistance or welfare of needy people from last 67 years in Pakistan without any significant change in society. Nobody from media, intelligence agency, police or civil society has ever spoken on this matter of collection of huge fund in Karachi in last 60 years, and never raised any question where the collected amount was spent and what is the volume of the amount collected. The Karachi-ites have been donating Fitrana, Zakat, Sadaqat to Islamists, Jihadist, administrations of Masajid and Maderssa without knowing how much amount is spent truly to serve the purpose of donations and how much amount went into the acc! ounts of individuals.

The huge unaccounted-for money collected by these organizations has given birth to the criminalization of Karachi. The opportunity of easy money available in Karachi has attracted the criminal elements in name of Islam, Jihad, educating the poor in Madarsas, etc., and they made their bases in Karachi. The tug of war to control this flow of donation was the reason of increase in the fight among such organizations. The murders of Pesh imams and fighting between rivals to control on donations in Karachi in 80s are just example of this fact.

A huge donation was collected by so called religious cum political party Jamat-e-Islami in the name of Alkhidmat Foundation in last 67 years in Karachi. The contribution made by Alkhidmat Foundation is no doubt undeniable, but if the donation collected by Jamat-e-Islami will be compared with its contribution for social well being of people and response in case of any natural calamity is insignificant. It is a common observation that Alkhidmat does not provide relief to people on merit and need basis. Its help is highly selective for its workers or ideological supporters. Those who do not support its ideology have to pay handsome amount for services rendered to them in its hospitals. Same is the case of Jamat-ud-Dawa.

The million of Rupees being spent on unreasonable Dasterkhwan campaign of Chippa and Sillani welfare are basically an agent of increase in street crimes. This dasterkhwan service is socially irresponsible behavior of such organizations. When you are given continuous free lunch you became passive and criminal in your approach towards society that is what these organizations is adding in Karachi.

After observing donations being misused by so called Islamist, Jihadist and political cum religious parties, a young middle class student’s leader, Altaf Hussain with his comrade established KKC as welfare organization in 1978. They have proved their objectivity by the first ever generated fund from their pocket money and remuneration by the tuitions given by Mr. Altaf Hussain and his companions. After successful launch and tremendous support of Karachi-ites, Mr. Altaf Hussain transformed KKC into KKF. KKF now offers monthly distribution of financial aid to the poor and needy people of Pakistan. The foundation also manages the provision of dowries to needy and orphan girls for their marriages. During the month of Ramadan KKF offers their annual aid distribution among the deserving people which are selected on the basis of merits of need irrespective of their cast, creed, ethnicity, sect and religion. Continuo! us provision of free medical treatment and medications is also one of the prime services provided by this organization. With the help of MQM, KKF provides legal assistance to those victims of State repression, who cannot afford it, under a full-fledged section known as the Legal Aid Committee.

In case of natural catastrophe, KKF instantly forms its relief camps throughout the country. Its relief camps are always equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and full of required goods. The services provided by KKF has been acclaimed and supported internationally.Following the traditions of KKF’s services in national disasters, the foundation again showed tremendous efforts in the relief of the affected people of earthquake 2005. KKF established numerous medical camps all over the affected areas. KKF showed its outstanding work in the relief activities during Pakistan’s worst flood disaster in the year 2010! . This relief mission by KKF is still in continuation. KKF took brave steps to provide relief to terrorism affected people of Pakistan. KKF is also working in partnership with the Society for the Unwell & Needy (SUN), in UK and USA. KKF together with SUN, is playing a potential role in providing relief for victims of the disasters in Pakistan. Besides, emergency relief, KKF and SUN came together to set up the SUN Academy in Karachi to provide quality education for the poor and needy children and to challenge educational inequality in Pakistan. The selfless efforts of KKF and SUN has been appreciated by the people.

After observing the positive role of KKF in transforming the society and welfare of the poor and destitute, the youth of Karachi has started volunteering in large number. The youth started helping KKF in rendering services and in collecting donations. A highly organized educated youth collects donations in month of Ramadan for KKF. Its volunteers sacrifice their Eid-e-Qurban holidays and convince the people to donate the Hides to the KKF. These volunteers ensure that the donated amount must reach to its destination. This effective procedure of donation collection has drastically reduced the amount collected by Jihadist, Islamist, political cum religious organization and so called NGOs and as well as of a few individuals of Intelligence agencies who were managing the affairs of so called Kashmir and Afghanistan Jihads.

As a result these people have joined hands to malign the reputation of MQM and KKF by beatin! g drum that these volunteers force people to give the donations but they are failed to explain when these volunteers were not collecting these donations before 90s who were colleting the donations and where the huge amount in millions were spent, and how much contribution was made by them for social well beings of the poor and destitute. If question is raised on their output they start giving stupid explanations that since they have never been in absolute power therefore they could not bring any significant change in society. MQM has also never been in absolute power because it only represents the 7% of total enrolled in Pakistan but it has made significant changes in politics and field of Social welfare.

Since a huge sum of money which was being misused by religious organization and a few individuals of agencies has been reduced after KKF output, these people have established mafias in Karachi. The Lashkar, TTP, ANP, PAC, Sippah have started criminal activities in the form of Bank Dacoities, robberies, kidnappings, Bhatta Collections, Land Grabbing, Drug paddling and illegal arms supply to substitute the their reduced income . The police and state machinery responsible to control such mafias are either fail to do anything to stop them or they are silent spectators which is tantamount to support criminals. One of the examples how PPP tried to break the nerves of KKF is the Sind government’s covert and overt support to peoples aman committee (PAC) which is openly involved in collection of Bhatta, Kidnapping for ransom, killing of supporters of MQM and volunteers of KKF, and those who generously donate funds to ! KKF mostly Urdu Speaking. The state apparatus must get up before it is too late. It must read the actual script written in Karachi by Criminals and Mafias. The people responsible to save Pakistan in case of any danger should realize the stock of the situation in Karachi. They should not be misguided by the propaganda against MQM and KKF and thus they should not tolerate criminals as balancing force against MQM. These forces must accept the reality on the ground that MQM represents 80 percent of the Karachi population and thus it should be given leveling ground to act in Karachi. Remember your bias attitude has always taken things towards point of no return. You have tolerated the criminal sardars in Baluchistan and now it is beyond your control, you are tolerating the criminals in Karachi and it is getting closer to Lebanon and anarchy. O Allah saves my Country:

Moscow Recaps Its Missile Defense Posture

Moscow warned on Monday that the implementation of the European missile defense project could become a throwback to the Cold War era.

The United States says the shield is designed to protect against “rogue states” such as Iran and North Korea.

“Any unilateral and unlimited buildup of the missile capability by one state or a group of states would lead to the preservation of the Cold War rudiments, damaging strategic stability in violation of all the OSCE members' obligations not to strengthen their security at the expense of others,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

The project is a test of Western sincerity about its commitment to equal security in Europe, he said, reiterating Russia’s demand for “legally binding guarantees” that the system will not be used against it.

These guarantees should be verifiable, he stressed.

Negotiations between Russia and NATO member states on the U.S.-led missile defense project have deadlocked over the West's reluctance to give Moscow such guarantees.

The United States scrapped plans in September 2010 for an anti-ballistic-missile defense system in the Czech Republic and Poland. Moscow welcomed the move, and then-President Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia would drop plans to deploy Iskander-M tactical missiles in its Kaliningrad Region, which borders NATO members, Poland and Lithuania.

Last year, however, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced Washington's plans to deploy a missile interceptor site in Poland by 2018.

India Building Border Tunnel Complexes To Fight Pakistan and China

India is finally kick-starting the plan to build as many as 18 tunnels along the borders with Pakistan and China for faster troop mobility as well as storage of critical war-fighting assets like missiles, without the threat of detection by enemy satellites and spy drones.

While preliminary work on seven tunnels is underway after requisite approvals, the construction of 11 more tunnels in Jammu & Kashmir, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh is now on the drawing board after "a strong endorsement'' by the Army.

With China resorting to "tunnelling in a big way'' to store important military equipment, the Army wants the tunnel construction plans in the mountains in J&K and north-east to be fast-tracked. "The tunnels will provide shelter to troops and ammunition from both enemy shelling and extreme weather. They can also be used for NBC (nuclear, chemical, biological) protection and establishing command and control centres,'' said a top official.

Actual construction work is underway only in one of the 18 proposed tunnels. But, this long-delayed 8.82-km long horse-shoe shaped tunnel under the 13,400-feet Rohtang Pass, on the Manali-Sarchu-Leh axis, is unlikely to meet its completion deadline of February, 2015. Feasibility studies and preparation of detailed project reports (DPRs) for three more tunnels at Zozila, Z-Morh and Razdhan Pass in J&K are in progress, while similar work is planned for Khardungla and Sadhana Pass in J&K and Theng in Sikkim. The other proposed tunnels include Rangpo in Sikkim and on the Balipara-Charduar-Tawang axis in Arunachal Pradesh.

The Army is anxious the existing large gaps in border infrastructure — in terms of all-weather roads, tunnels, strategic railway lines, "permanent defences'' and the like — are plugged as fast as possible. China, for instance, can move around 30 divisions (each with over 15,000 soldiers) to the borders within 30 days to outnumber Indian forces by at least 3:1 after undertaking massive infrastructure development all along the 4,057-km Line of Actual Control, as earlier reported by TOI. An empowered committee under defence secretary Shashikant Sharma is scrutinizing DPRs for the proposed overall "capability development plan on the northern borders'' worth Rs 26,155 crore. While this is slated is slated for completion by 2020-2021, there is an ongoing Rs 9,243 crore project for "infrastructure development in the eastern theatre'' by 2016-2017.

The Army hopes the projects are not hit by huge time overruns like the 73 all-weather roads earmarked for construction along the three sectors of LAC close to a decade ago. Defence minister A K Antony admitted in LS this week that just 16 of those roads have been finished till now, with another 26 slated for completion by 2013, and 19 more by 2016.

Indian Navy Planned Trials For INS ARIHANT & Other Expansion Plans

India on Wednesday said its first home-built nuclear submarine was set for sea trials, as it detailed billion-dollar projects to arm its navy with warships, aircraft and modern weaponry.

The indigenous 6,000-ton INS Arihant (Destroyer of Enemies) was unveiled in 2009 as part of a project to construct five such vessels which would be armed with nuclear-tipped missiles and torpedoes.

"Arihant is steadily progressing towards operationalisation, and we hope to commence sea trials in the coming months," Indian navy chief Admiral Nirmal Verma told reporters.

"Our maritime and nuclear doctrine will then be aligned to ensure that our nuclear insurance comes from the sea," Verma said,

Arihant is powered by an 85-megawatt nuclear reactor and can reach 44 kilometres an hour (24 knots), according to defence officials. It will carry a 95-member crew.

The Indian navy inducted a Russian-leased nuclear submarine into service in April this year, joining China, France, the United States, Britain and Russia in the elite club of countries with nuclear-powered vessels.

Verma said 43 warships were currently under construction at local shipyards while the first of six Franco-Spanish Scorpene submarines under contract would join the Indian navy in 2015 and the sixth by 2018.

The admiral said the navy was also poised to induct eight Boeing long-range maritime reconnaissance P-8I aircraft next year.

India Started Working On Its Indigenous AWACS Development Project

As Russia rising price in procurement of Ilyushin Il-76 platform and steep price rise demanded by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for IAI EL/W-2090 Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) radar system and integration of it in Ilyushin Il-76 platform might lead to no further follow up orders of three A-50EI which Indian air force currently operates .

Follow up order was suppose to be of three more aircraft’s with similar radar integrated on Ilyushin Il-76 platform , bringing total to 6 A-50EI based AEW&C aircraft’s , negotiations are still going on but Government is planning to Start Phase II project to India’s own AEW&C Project and DRDO will get the clearance soon on this matter.

Israel has been asking India to consider Gulfstream G550 Eitam aircraft based AEW&C for some time now to reduce cost in platform purchase and integration cost of radar ,Gulfstream G550 based AEW&C are also operated by Israeli air force but IAF is not keen on it. IAF is also happy with the progress made by DRDO in its own AEW&C program and is considering further development if the deal for three more A-50EI based AEW&C fails to materialize.

Under Phase-1 , DRDO will be integrating Locally developed Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) radar system in to Brazilian Embraer aircraft’s and first aircraft which has already taken its first flight in Brazil should be arriving in India soon for system integration in India . next two aircraft’s will be in India next year and whole project will be completed and aircrafts will be handed over to IAF by 2015 as per DRDO plans.

Under Phase-II , DRDO with inputs from Indian air force , will select a new platform with higher operational range and capabilities , and will also be developing a new complete 360 degree surveillance system and radar in par or exceeding in performance of A-50EI.

For Avoiding Cyber Threats, Iran Gone Offline

Reza Taghipour, the country's telecommunications minister, said the step was being taken because sensitive intelligence was vulnerable on the worldwide web, which he said was untrustworthy because it was controlled by "one or two" countries hostile to Iran. "The establishment of the national intelligence network will create a situation where the precious intelligence of the country won't be accessible to these powers," Mr Taghipour told a conference on Sunday at Tehran's Amir Kabir University.

He described the move as the first phase of a project to replace the global internet with a domestic intranet system scheduled to be completed within 18 months.

Opponents have previously denounced the plan as a means of stamping out western influence on the internet while further tightening already stringent online surveillance of political activists and regime critics.

While Iranian officials have repeatedly spoken about creating their own alternative to the internet, the latest announcement follows the upheaval wreaked by Stuxnet and Flame, both of which are believed to have been developed jointly by the US and Israel.

Turkey Started Working On ICBM Project

Turkish Armed Forces have begun working on a project to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

A decision to launch the project was made in a July 17 meeting of the Defense Industry Executive Board, headed by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Özel. Erdoğan had previously requested that the military develop missiles with a 2,500-kilometer range.

The board decided to form a satellite launch center that would have a two-fold effect on Turkey's aerospace and military endeavors. First, the center will enable Turkey to place its own satellites in orbit, and second, the center will allow the Turkish military to launch missiles that can navigate outside of the Earth's atmosphere. Attaining an ICBM launch capability is reportedly the chief aim of the satellite launch center.

The Turkish Defense Ministry, the Defense Industry Undersecretariat and the Scientific and Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK), have been jointly working on the project for some time.

The report said Ankara could cooperate with an undisclosed Eastern European country to develop the satellite launch center.

The ICBM project, meanwhile, has sought to improve on the SOM cruise missile developed by TÜBİTAK. The SOM cruise missile has a current range of 300 kilometers. The range would first be increased to 1,500 and later to 2,500 kilometers within the project, according to the report.

The report did not elaborate on whether the SOM's planned 2,500-kilometer range would be increased even further or whether its increased range would be utilized to develop an ICBM separately, as missiles with ranges under 5,500 kilometers are not considered "intercontinental."

The countries known to currently have ICBMs in their military arsenal are Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and India.

Chinese DF-21D ASBM One Shot Carrier Destroyer

Since the end of WWII, America's naval might has been undisputed and our aircraft carriers have been its crown jewels. However, the days of dominance could end with China's new DF-21D ballistic missile—the only device on Earth capable of sinking an aircraft carrier—four and a half acres of sovereign US territory—with one shot.

The DF-21D (Dong-Feng 21 variant D) is the world's first and only anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM). It's a two stage, land-launched missile with a maximum estimated range of 2,700 to 3,000 km. Its single fuel-air explosive warhead packs 200 to 500 kilotons. It was developed by China Changfeng Mechanics and Electronics Technology Academy as part of the country's massive military modernization effort, an initiative focused primarily on developing overwhelming missile technologies for which there are no effective defenses. The Defense Department believes it entered active service around 2009.

While the Chinese obviously aren't saying much on the inner workings of the new missile system, military experts believe it will rely on China's Over the Horizon radar (OTH) to monitor a 3,000-km swath of the South China Sea, where China is now claiming dominion over. The OTH system bounces its radar signal off the ionosphere to see past the curvature of the earth. If the OTH detects a carrier battle fleet, the system instigates a set of Yaogan satellites to search the area and provide precise targeting data. Additionally, when the OTH detects an approaching fleet, the system will reportedly launch a swarm of micro-satellites into low orbit where they will help refine the targeting data further and transmit it back to the onshore command center. Meanwhile, UAVs will be launched to track the fleet. Once the missile has been launched and separated from its first stage, the warhead employs synthetic aperture radar to find the carrier. It receives real time telemetry data as it locks onto its target and initiates its terminal descent.

This capability could be used to effectively deny US carriers from intervening in, say, the Taiwan Strait. It could also be used as a very large stick in resolving local territorial disputes. Many members of the security community also worry that the FAE warheads could easily be replaced with nuclear ones. If that occurred, it would very lead to an arms race with Japan and India (neither of whom are particularly fond of the Communist PRC). Or, it could dissolve the US-Russian INF Treaty, which prevents the two countries from from deploying short and intermediate range land-based ballistic and cruise missiles.
