Rehman Foundation motto Save lives Save humanity

 (Written By, Shazreh Shahzad)                       

The Rehman Foundation is an organization that is around for the last 16 years,

 an organization that is helping people who are in need of dialysis for free. The NGO has

 multiple centers in different cities that are operative and are always there to help the

 helpless people when it comes to health issues making them one of the finest in persistently

 providing the best health services in Pakistan. Moreover, it isn’t very known to people and

 the purpose of writing this article is so that the readers can get informed about a very

 blessed NGO that helps the needy when it comes to diseases. Pakistan is one of the

 countries with the highest rate of kidney failures and due to poverty people are unable to

 get a cure but as mentioned earlier, the Rehman foundation aims to put in an effort to

 prevent this.

Just a week ago, I had the honor of speaking with the chairman of the foundation, Dr. Waqar Ahmed where he talked about starting the foundation in the first place and talked about what other cities other than Lahore his foundation is operating in. He continued telling how difficult it is to operate a dialysis center with free accommodations with almost 150 patients being treated for free and yet another 100 who are waiting to get cured. He went along with why people have this problem and why in Pakistan it is the biggest problem health-wise, it’s because people don’t do their tests to find out what is wrong with them since they don’t keep up to look after their bodies. Doctor Waqar Ahmed is on the urge of spreading awareness among people to get tested and be aware of the problems they may adopt later. So it is very important to him that people who have the symptoms should get tested immediately before the health gets worse since dialysis is very expensive. The foundation is also keen to give lectures to people on how to take care of their bodies and stay safe from any health issue that can be a problem. When asked why he started the organization in the first place, he said that he was motivated by a young boy who died due to kidney failure because of lack of resources and his parents didn’t know what to do since they couldn’t afford it. And to start the foundation he spent money of his own to get the machines and maintain a relationship of trust with others who were worthy of giving donations to get more resources that could be enough to help with the cure. As time went by him along with the exceptional effort of his team members of the NGOs were able to open operative centers in other big and small cities so people in other cities don’t have the pressure to travel when they have the opportunity to get cured at a center in their own city.

 

To make more effort in getting people aware of such NGO, he thinks students would be a powerful voice to spread alertness among others with the benefit of social media and other mediums that could help extend the need for donations Rehman Foundation still desire because of some people who are still waiting in line. His team and he has managed to get around 50 dialysis machines with the help of known people who kindly donated to get resources. Even 17 years later, Rehman Foundation is consistent in helping anyone who is required to get treated and organizing fundraisers to get any means of donations so they can help the people.

 

Another member of the team I had the opportunity to talk with was with Director of promotion Farah Deeba who recently got ahold of a lot of donations through public relations and getting people motivated to consider donating and with having a political background many people supported the NGO and donated enough to get dialysis machines from abroad. When the foundation was just starting out they introduced 3 dialysis machines and today they deal with 100 people daily and treat them with high approach no matter what for free of cost. They also approach the donors to meets the patients so the donors know who are they are helping and the patients know who is treating them, this creates a value in saving both lives and humanity.

The main determination of the foundation is to spread attentiveness regarding funds and Islamic value in a way that back up people to encourage the cause. They ensure that they stand alongside their patients throughout the journey and have hope in donors who are willing to donate in fundraisers and through zakat.

 

As it is time to wrap up the article, I would suggest that every one of us should take care of our bodies and get a checkup if there’s a problem because you never when one can fall into a serious health problem so it’s better if we take care of ourselves and others around us. Pakistan has a gross population of over 144 million people with the majority of the people are living in rural areas. And as Dr. Waqar Ahmed mentioned there is a continuous number of patients who have chronic renal failure in a country like Pakistan and the number is increasing rapidly. I would encourage all to visit these organizations and to help the people who are still there because they require your help in any way you want to.

Rehman Foundation also encourages people to work with them in order to expand their centers and maintain a relationship that can help the foundation with donations so they are able to avail more dialysis machines especially wanting the government to support them so they get the ability to treat the patients in a better way. Support and faith are also the two things that people look for in each other. Rehman Foundations ensures that there is “Health for all”.

Pakistan's economy and the IMF

(Written By, Abu Raaja Haider)

Shaukat Tareen, the fourth Finance Minister to take the lead in reviving and stabilizing the country's economy in the last three years, has made it clear that the wheel of the economy is not turning, contrary to the government's general statement.

There is no investment, inflation is rising. It was also a mistake to set interest rates at 13.25% and sales tax at 17%. If we do not take GDP growth to 5%, productivity will not increase and employment opportunities will not increase. To achieve these goals, we have to make tough decisions. In this regard, he termed the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for economic loans and its terms as strict, calling for abuses from Pakistan and especially the demand for an increase in electricity tariffs. Indicated a review of the organization's program.

In a briefing session of the National Assembly's Standing Committee on Finance on Monday, he described the real situation of the national economy in a concise manner, which shows where we have faced shortcomings on the economic front in the last three years and how to address them. What should we do now? He also promised that we are now in the process of stabilizing the economy. "We have a lack of proper planning. To improve this, we have implemented ten measures, including price stabilization, agriculture, industry, revenue, housing, social security, national services, debt management, and privatization of loss-making government agencies," he said. Twelve sectors have been selected and economists have begun work on them.

The Finance Minister spoke of achieving the revenue target by increasing the tax net instead of raising electricity tariffs instead of raising electricity tariffs to reduce revolving debts and said that the privatization of state-owned enterprises could not be run by the government. Will be He also said that exports were not increasing as most of the businesses were local rather than foreign investors. He later told the media that inflation was on the rise but steps were being taken to curb it. Sales tax is too high at 17% and measures are being taken to reduce it. 

The Finance Minister's address also revealed that 85% of the revenue of all the provinces is spent on only 9 cities while very little is spent on health and education. China will be asked to provide jobs to 10 million Pakistanis to end unemployment in the country. In the meeting, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Waqar Masood said that if the third wave of Corona had not come, the growth rate would have been 4%. Shaukat Tareen has been brought in after the experience of three finance ministers. He has been the country's finance minister before and before taking charge in the current government, many of his valuable suggestions on stabilizing the country's economy have been coming out through the media, so it should be expected that he will be the second economic.

In addition to rectifying the shortcomings, the international financial institutions, especially the IMF, will be able to rectify the situation. Against the backdrop of the devastating Corona epidemic, it is time to relax the terms of loans from the IMF. The general impression is that the IMF's interference in the economic affairs of the country has increased a lot and the problems facing the nation at present, including inflation, are in one form or another the hand of this international institution. If Shaukat Tareen can remove this impression, it will be a great achievement of the present government.

European Parliament's unjustified resolution!

(Written By, Abu Raja Haider)

Pointing to the equal rights of minorities, the European Parliament has called on its Commission and the European External Action Service to review Pakistan's GSP Plus status (generalized system of preference), not just unjustified and malicious Rather, it has been done at a critical time when the international community is facing Islamophobia and the growing problems it poses, the best solution to which is to strengthen the atmosphere of tolerance, including interfaith dialogue.


In this regard, the position of the Pakistan Foreign Office is quite correct, according to which this debate in the European Parliament indicates a lack of understanding of blasphemy and the associated religious sensitivities in Pakistan and the Muslim world. Responding to media questions on Friday, the Foreign Office spokesman lamented unnecessary comments about the judiciary and the country's laws, stating that Pakistan is a parliamentary democracy with a vibrant civil society, independent media, and an independent judiciary. Are the guarantors of the fundamental rights of all citizens of the country without distinction?

We are proud that our minorities have equal rights and the protection of their fundamental freedoms are guaranteed in the Constitution. Compensation is available at the judicial and administrative levels for any violation of constitutional rights. 


This statement of the Foreign Office Spokesperson is very responsible and based on principles while the real issue is Islamophobia on which if any irrelevant action is taken against Pakistan or any other Islamic country then the problem is in its place Will remain The Pakistan Foreign Office has said very well that we will discuss all issues in a positive manner with the European Union as Pakistan has always played an active role with tolerance and tolerance for religious freedom and harmony.

US Concerns About Afghanistan's Future

(Written by, Abu Raja Haider)

The chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Millie, had expressed concern three days ago that the withdrawal of foreign troops could lead to a resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan or the possible consequences of any kind in which Afghans These include the overthrow of the government, the civil war, the devastation of humanity and the restoration of al-Qaeda on this land. According to the US general, the best outcome of the withdrawal of coalition forces could be negotiations and an agreement between the Kabul government and the Taliban, but if al-Qaeda tries to increase its influence after the withdrawal of US troops, it will be monitored and pursued.

 

American circles also fear that if the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, the progress made in recent years in civil society and women's rights would be lost. In his April 14 announcement, President Biden said Washington would continue to support public projects, including Afghan security forces and women. In light of the situation, in his first address to the joint session of the Congress on Thursday, he made it clear that after the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, we have to restore trust between Pakistan and Afghanistan. His thinking is positive in the sense that anti-peace forces have spared no effort to widen the gap between the two countries over the past 20 years, attacking Pakistani borders from Afghan soil on the one hand and Afghanistan on the other to create tension. Bombings and acts of terrorism, but Pakistan, realizing the facts, always kept the Afghan government informed of the common enemy.


It is a centuries-old fact that the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan have always stood together on the basis of common values ​​of religion, culture, and civilization, and have stood by each other in every joy and sorrow. After the establishment of Pakistan through its relations, trade, and free movement, a nominal border remained between the two countries. In the light of this situation, the United States openly acknowledges that the centuries-old ties between the people of the two countries cannot widen the gap, which makes it necessary for Pakistan to participate in the reconciliation process.


In his message on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the overthrow of the Soviet government in Kabul by Mujahideen, President Ashraf Ghani said that lessons should be learned from the bitter experiences of the past in the peace process. According to him, the will of the people cannot be imposed through war and violence in Afghanistan. Now is the time for the Taliban to abandon the war and adopt a democratic approach to sharing power, but as the time draws near for the withdrawal of foreign troops, given the situation on the ground in Afghanistan, the international community has concerns about the future. There are also attempts to remove them.


Before leaving for Afghanistan, German Foreign Minister Heiko Moss visited Pakistan and had detailed discussions with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin's telephone conversation with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday is also a link in the same chain in which the two officials exchanged views on the situation after the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Thought There is a need for all political groups in Afghanistan to understand the delicacy of the situation and resolve all issues in the best interest of the country and the nation through dialogue and understanding.

The right demand from the West

 (JTNDI Khan Special Report)



Expressing the sentiments of Muslims around the world, Prime Minister Imran Khan has rightly pointed out the fact that the Holy Prophet lives in the hearts of Muslims but extremist Western politicians insult the Prophet of Islam in the name of freedom of expression. However, blasphemy cannot be tolerated under the guise of freedom of expression. Therefore, blasphemy against the Holy Prophet (PBUH) should be made a punishable crime like the Holocaust. Explaining the reason for the decision to ban Tehreek-e-Libek, the Prime Minister clarified that the move was necessary under the anti-terrorism law as it challenged the functioning of the state and created riots in the streets. ۔

To understand the situation, it is important to keep in mind the fact that in October last year, French President Emmanuel Machiavelli published objectionable sketches calling for freedom of expression rather than an act of blasphemy in honor of the last of the prophets. When he was encouraged, the Muslims of the world reacted strongly to it. There was also a strong protest in Pakistan against France and it was demanded to send back its ambassador. Tehreek-e-Lubaik played a leading role in the protest and reached an agreement with the Pakistani government that legislation would be enacted within three months to send back the French ambassador.

Tehreek-e-Libek's recent protest was for the implementation of the agreement, but apparently, due to bilateral mistakes, it turned into lawlessness and chaos and the government decided to declare the movement illegal. How constitutionally correct is this move? Legal experts may have differing views. However, as far as the Prime Minister's demand from the Western world is concerned that blasphemy against the Prophet of Islam should be declared as forbidden and punishable as speaking out against the Holocaust, it should be justified and justified. It is very clear that all Muslim governments must work together to meet this demand. At the same time, it is necessary to effectively break the original conspiracy plan behind the systematic series of insults in the name of the Holy Prophet.

According to the ideology of the clash of civilizations that is riding on the nerves of Western intellectuals and rulers today, the only civilization that threatens Western civilization today is Islam. In order to change this situation, it was decided to declare Islam as the flag bearer of terrorism. Under the same strategy, arrangements were also made to provoke the Muslims by publishing blasphemous sketches so that Muslims would not be tolerated when there was a protest. And to be declared a terrorist, therefore, the correct break of this tactic is to present the true teachings of Islam in response to false propaganda. Anti-Islamic propaganda always arouses curiosity among the targets and by informing them of the real facts, the Islamic system of justice and mercy can be recognized in the same way as the Holy Prophet won the hearts of those who were subjected to severe misleading propaganda against him.

He enlightened the Arabian Peninsula with the light of Islam. This prophet of the Holy Prophet is our guide even today and the Muslim world can adopt it and make the people of the West who are distrustful of Islam their own just as they did after Your Tatar. There was an amazing incident of "Passengers found the Kaaba from the Sanam Khana".

The dream of world peace, the test of the American Democrats

(Written by Abu Raja Haider)

Natchez is adamant that in the science of international relations, one who does not fully understand the distinction between the US role in global and regional politics and its (US) domestic politics cannot be recognized as a "World Peace and Security Scholar." It also confirms that in world and regional politics, countries around the world are as concerned about the US election results as they are about the world and regional peace, as much as they are concerned about the world and regional peace. , Especially concerned with their own safety.

Readers, consider that the final and logical outcome of the 40-year world war was the overthrow of the Soviet empire and the domination of Russian teens in the world. The second major consequence of this was the golden opportunity in American history for him (Washington) to become the only acceptable leader in the world. "Acceptable" here means that which is recognized by the governments of the world and the world community as superior to the mind and heart and the real non-controversial and lonely (worldly, political) power. For this, the United States had to take off its "American" lens and prove itself a fully responsible and just world power. Its basic requirement was that, with the cooperation and cooperation of its living and active allies in each region, it removes obstacles to the full implementation of the UN Charter and the implementation of the decisions of this world body. Thus, the long-standing permanent threats to the world and regional peace today would have turned into peace and tranquility and would have become a source of true enlightenment for humanity, making the world a real cradle of peace and tranquility. Now, in today's smoldering world, all this seems like a dream, but the one that was shattered in spite of all the opportunities for interpretation.

Extensive research will prove the hypothesis that the United States lost a great and certain opportunity for world peace and security at a time when the collapse of the Soviet Union was a great opportunity for the United States and the world. In contrast, the American Republican rulers and their leading think tanks, in contrast to the "world peace thinking", were dominated by American conquest and making America the ruler of the world. It was a reflection of the classical thinking of the American Republicans. There is no doubt that by adopting the same approach, the Republican Reagan administration won a landslide victory over Jimmy Carter and came to power. Focused aggressively to end the aggression, with Pakistan becoming its first active and tadam victorious partner. Earlier, taking advantage of the Democrats' defunct Carter administration's policy of "non-interference," the Iranian revolutionaries succeeded in bringing about an Islamic revolution in Iran, the most important American ally in the Middle East.

In the follow-up, the pro-American Binti Dawood government of Afghanistan was overthrown and the "Thor Revolution" of the Afghan communists was launched there. American influence had sunk into the Persian Gulf. The entire staff of the American embassy in Tehran was being held hostage by the revolutionaries and fulfilling their conditions with the United States. There were even analyses that if the Carter administration had not ended the traditional American policy towards Iran, the Shah of Iran's resistance would have been against the revolutionaries and the sooner and more American influence was removed from the region, it would not have happened. That's the shape. To a large extent, the Reagan administration downplayed all this in making possible the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, as well as achieving a great victory in overthrowing the Soviet Union.

In the post-Cold War period, the drunken thieves derailed the American Republicans and, contrary to the requirements of world peace and security and favorable conditions, fell into the trap of celebrating and running their own world order (New World Order). The Islamic world, which became an active partner of the United States in the large-scale jihad in Afghanistan, went on a path of misguided policy and unacceptable decision-making by making some of its anti-government groups a major threat to itself or politically. ۔ Thus, instead of making itself as acceptable as possible, the United States began to make itself controversial. So many times the European Union's disgust was clearly seen by the world as "then it broke up".

By constantly putting pressure on the most effective and proven defense partner like Pakistan, it made itself suspicious, yet it became a nuclear power contrary to US policy. Afghanistan has suffered a great deal by entangling itself for a long time. Nothing happened. As confusing as it is now, safe evacuation has become the US target. The legitimate influence that the United States has had and continues to have in Afghanistan is proving impossible. What did the United States gain from the "misinformation" of the weapons of mass destruction that the Republican Bush administration killed millions of people in Iraq and wreaked havoc in the country? What effect did all this have on the people of the Middle East and the Muslim world? The approach was taken by US Republicans, especially Democrats, on the UN dispute over Palestine and Kashmir is a challenge for the US think tanks to audit its findings and first reform themselves to guide future US governments.

Do All of these American games of the world and regional politics, which divided the United States in such a way and with such intensity (to a deadly extent), all came before the world in the 20th election. Earlier, a sit-in by millions of poor Americans at the US Treasury Center opened the floodgates of America's deteriorating public economic status in the form of the "Aco Pie Wall Street Movement". Is the United States pursuing global "peace and security" in its "national interests" by simply deploying powerful naval forces in the open sea and with controversial military allies such as India and war-torn allies like Japan? Can leave the world and do something better for yourself by continuing the mission of achieving? Finding the right answer to this big question, then, according to policy and decision making, has become a major challenge for the Democratic Biden administration.

President Erdogan stood firm like a rock

 Writtenby Abu Jaja Haider

After the Turkish government unilaterally terminated the "Istanbul Agreement" in recent days, when journalists asked the Speaker of the Turkish National Assembly "Mustafa and Top" whether Turkey has signed any other international agreements, including the "Montreux Agreement". Including and because of which Turkey's hands are tied, can be canceled? In response, the Speaker of the Assembly Mustafa Shaun Top said that Turkey can cancel all agreements that are not in Turkey's interest. Following this response, an earthquake shook Turkey, and news of Turkey's early cancellation of the Montreux Treaty began to gain prominence in the media. In addition, a few days ago, a picture of Rear Admiral Mehmet Sari of the Turkish Navy wearing a turban and a robe at a shrine was criticized on social media, and he and Erdogan's government were criticized because no such incident had been seen in the Turkish army before. 

It is worth mentioning here that the Turkish army is a well-organized army and it is strongly committed to secularism. That is why no soldier is allowed to have a beard or a mustache. A statement has been issued against the Erdo Govt: a government with the signatures of 104 retired Admirals of the Turkish Navy long after the two incidents in Turkey. The statement said that in the recent past, the negotiation of the Istanbul Canal and the Montreux Agreement within the scope of the powers to revoke international agreements has in fact been a source of concern for all of us retired Admirals. There are important waterways and it has been implemented in the history of mankind under the influence of multinational treaties.

The last of these treaties, known as the Montreux Treaty, is the best way for Turkish rights. Protects Turkey not only from the agreement governing the passage of ships passing through Turkey but also from Turkey to Turkey, Istanbul, Chanak Fort, Marmara Sea, and the Bosphorus. The agreement is aimed at finalizing Lausanne and giving Turkey a diplomatic victory, as well as an agreement to make the Black Sea a sea of ​​peace. As a result of the Montreux Accords, Turkey remained neutral in World War II and stayed out of the war. Retired Admirals of the Navy also drew the attention of the government to the fact that in recent times, a picture of a Rear Admiral Mehmet Sari wearing a turban and a robe at a shrine in the media has caused great distress to the Army. These retired admirals have warned the government to refrain from any action that violates the constitution and disregards Ataturk's principles.

President Erdogan described the midnight memorandum issued by 104 retired Admirals as similar to the one issued in the past when martial law was imposed in the country and said that the memorandum was based on malice. A country where the civilian government has been overthrown many times. 104 This memorandum of retired Admirals cannot be accepted under any circumstances. Although the memorandum was issued by retired admirals, it is a blot on the Turkish Armed Forces.

Martial law has always been applied in Turkey only after the issuance of a memorandum. "I want to make it clear that Turkey has largely protected its interests as a result of the Montreux Agreement reached in 1936 before World War II," he said. During World War II, although many attempts were made to push Turkey into the war, Turkey remained neutral and stayed away from it. President Erdoانan said that unless we create the conditions for a better agreement, The implementation of the agreement will continue.

He said that we did not see the statements of these Admirals in favor of the government at a time when there were failed attempts to overthrow the civilian government on July 15, 2016. He said that after the issuance of the memorandum at midnight, all Turkish politicians needed to raise their voices against it but unfortunately, some politicians supported the memorandum. He said that Rear Admiral Mehmet Sari had violated the army uniform and the Ministry of Defense would take immediate action against him.

The changing Scenario of South Asia

Writing: Abu Raja Haider

March 2021 has been a turning point in the world, especially in South Asia. In the post-Trump United States, the Biden administration is reviewing its strategy in all areas. Talks have begun between the Chinese and US governments on other disputes, including trade. The sea? On the South China dispute, Biden said he was not anti-China but wanted China to abide by international democratic rules. At a key Quad meeting on March 14, the United States, India, Australia, and Japan considered a joint strategy to stem Chinese expansion, a new kind of Cold War. The nations involved in the Cold War with the Soviet Union faced the iron wall of the Moscow government, this time competing with the Western world against China, which is a pioneer of the open market, capitalism, and economy. China is determined to be the most powerful and richest. US alliances such as NATO and Quad are being reactivated. Unlike the Trump administration, the United States is re-emerging as a leader in world politics.

A new alliance of Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and China is being formed. China provides ڈالر 400 billion development package to Iran Earlier, China entered into a historic partnership with Pakistan by allocating 62 62 billion for C-Pack and Uber. Pakistan and Turkey have collaborated on a number of cultural, technical, and strategic projects. The strength of this relationship has come to the fore in the Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict, and now Turkey is joining the bloc. The launch of the Tehran-Istanbul-Islamabad rail network is a living example of this cooperation. Pakistan is central to this alliance. With the development of these diplomatic relations, China is increasing its influence, which Europe and the United States will not be able to compete with. If Azerbaijan joins the bloc, these countries will have a strong influence in the Central Asian markets. Surprisingly, India and Pakistan in a joint statement in March reaffirmed the implementation of the 2003 ceasefire agreement.


The United Arab Emirates has revealed that a secret peace roadmap has been reached between Pakistan and India. Following the announcement, military operations chiefs agreed to a ceasefire at meetings. After Imran Khan's corona positive, Narendra Modi wrote a letter to inquire about his well-being. Afterward, the parties reaffirmed their commitment to promoting peace and mutual respect. Progress is also being made on the Indus Basin Agreement. It was also hinted that the resumption of trade and diplomatic talks on Kashmir was the next agenda of Islamabad and New Delhi. UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah paid a successful visit to both the countries on which King Sheikh Mohammed congratulated him. The question arises, what is the interest of the UAE in this? The UAE has emerged as a leading country in the Middle East due to Saudi Arabia's strict diplomatic policies. The United States is making every effort to advance the peace agreement between Pakistan and India to bolster anti-war efforts in Afghanistan, another challenge facing Biden.

For many years, Washington has been demanding Dow Moore from Pakistan. The Americans believed that the Pakistani government was helping the Taliban to destabilize the Karzai government because Kabul was forging closer ties with India. Over time, Karzai has proven that the Afghan government has failed to limit the Taliban's influence and that the key to lasting peace lies with Pakistan and the people of the tribal belt. Biden's administration considers diplomacy conditional on peace in Afghanistan. The United Arab Emirates is working on behalf of the United States, which will bring Pakistan and India to the table so that the United States is in a better position in Afghanistan. To be able to It seems that South Asia does not tolerate any conflict at the moment, not even the Taliban.


China needs Pakistan for its expansion in Asia. Tehran is its second ally in the global program of trade, development, and diplomatic relations. On the other hand, the Americans also need Pakistan to protect their interests in Afghanistan and to negotiate. China is far ahead of US and European estimates. According to an independent analysis, the world needs to benefit from China's economic development, trade, and technological expertise today. And to reach economic prosperity through poverty alleviation. China is the world's largest economy, India is the world's largest democracy, and the United States is still the largest military power in human history. All these countries are connected with Pakistan and South Asia to advance their national agenda. This is a historic time, and the events that are unfolding now will continue to have repercussions for decades to come. The power struggle between these powerful countries can determine the fate of billions of people. Overall, the situation in South Asia and the region is like a kaleidoscope, and new angles are emerging with each passing day.

Global, regional scenario and Russian Foreign Minister Visit Pakistan

(Abu Raja Haider)

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is currently on a two-day visit to Pakistan. Analysts are calling the visit "very important" and there is a lot of talk in the country's media. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in a video message on the occasion that this is the first visit of a Russian Foreign Minister to Pakistan in nine years. Russia is a very important country in the region, with which bilateral relations are improving. ۔ We intend to cooperate with each other in the region. Pakistan is watching how its economic and defense relations with Russia are progressing and Islamabad also wants to move forward with the North-South gas pipeline project with Moscow. Is. Russia also has long-standing relations with India. Russia can also persuade India to play a positive role in establishing peace in Afghanistan. During his visit, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov will also hold meetings with Prime Minister Imran Khan and Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa.

Relations between Pakistan and the then Soviet Union were not good during the Cold War. But after the end of the war, relations between Moscow and Islamabad gradually improved, but they did not show much warmth. The last time a Russian foreign minister visited Pakistan was in 2012 when President Putin canceled his visit. The then Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar had visited Russia. In recent years, relations between the two countries have further improved.

Pakistan's focus is on the East and this action is positive for Pakistan. The United States has always viewed Pakistan with suspicion. So now it is better for Pakistan to look to the east. He had good relations with China and now he wants good relations with Russia as well. Pakistan, Iran, Russia, China, Turkey, and Central Asian countries can form a new political bloc together.

The focus of the Russian Foreign Minister's visit is on Afghanistan. The withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan is imminent and in that case, a political vacuum could be created there. If such a gap was created in the past, it would have been detrimental to Pakistan and the region. The Russian Foreign Minister has come to discuss the issue and is accompanied by an expert on Afghan affairs. Russia recently invited Pakistan to the Heart of Asia Conference. In addition, Pakistan was invited to another meeting on the issue of Afghanistan, which shows that Russia wants to work for the stability of Afghanistan and its role is very important.

The general impression in Islamabad is that the current US administration is not giving much importance to Pakistan. President Joe Biden called several heads of state and government, but the Pakistani prime minister has not yet received a call. In addition, the United States did not invite Pakistan to the environmental conference, while John Kerry did not visit Pakistan. But it is clear that because of Pakistan's geographical importance, the United States can never ignore it and now US troops are in Afghanistan. The US needs Pakistan's help for their return, while the US also needs Pakistan's help to negotiate with the Taliban. America will need Pakistan. Even after the withdrawal of US troops, it will still need Pakistan in the region. The US cannot think of isolating Pakistan.

In the past, Pakistan kept all the eggs in one basket on foreign affairs. That is, it became part of the Western alliance and did not make good use of relations with other countries.  Pakistan has learned a lesson from the Cold War that it should not go to a single camp but run its foreign policy independently. By improving relations with Russia, Pakistan wants to show Washington that it has laid all the same eggs. Do not put it in the basket. Pakistan is also signaling that if the United States does not pay attention to it, so will other countries in the world. The Foreign Minister's visit to Pakistan is of special significance. It remains to be seen how Pakistan will succeed in its peace efforts in the region and strengthen its credibility.

Ashraf Ghani's " Peace roadmap " America Taliban and Pakistan

( Written By Abu Rija Haider )

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has drawn up a three-stage "peace roadmap" for the establishment of a new political government and lasting peace in the country, which he will present at a key meeting in Turkey this month. The United States, with the help of the United Nations, is pushing for a conference in Turkey this month to consider the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan, lasting peace, and the formation of a new political government.

We will present a three-phase peace plan. The first phase involves secession from the presidency, the establishment of a workable agreement for a political settlement between the parties, and a ceasefire under the supervision of world powers. The second phase will hold presidential elections and elect a new president. The structure of the system will have to be structured and steps will be taken for the formation of a political government. Work will be done for welfare.

According to a senior Afghan government official, Ashraf Ghani has already shared his roadmap with foreign capitals, but the Taliban have not yet discussed the agenda. Earlier, the United States had hinted at a delay in the withdrawal of foreign troops by May 1. It has proposed the formation of an all-party caretaker government in Afghanistan, which was rejected by the Kabul government but was half-agreed by the Taliban.

The new US administration, embroiled in controversy over the withdrawal of coalition forces from Afghanistan, fears that if troops are withdrawn without a power-sharing agreement between the warring parties, the Taliban will take over most of Afghanistan in two to three years. Can capture, In addition, there may be opportunities for al Qaeda to regroup. In this context, the intelligence agencies are insisting that the US military should remain in Afghanistan even after the deadline. In this regard, the report of the US Congress said that Pakistan is and will remain the most important country for resolving the Afghan conflict.

While the report argues that the regional situation in Afghanistan will be affected by the intervention of foreign powers, it openly acknowledges that Pakistan has played an active role in Afghan affairs for decades. It is a centuries-old fact that the people of the two countries have always stood together on the basis of common values ​​of religion, culture, and civilization and have stood by each other in every joy and sorrow. The existence of the border between the two countries has remained formal even after the establishment of Pakistan due to mutual relations, trade, and free movement.

However, in the aftermath of the invasion of Afghanistan by foreign troops, Afghanistan and Pakistan faced instability and terrorism for two decades, while the Soviet Union fell victim to the same war. As a result of this overall situation, Pakistan had to bear the loss of trillions of rupees along with thousands of precious human lives. In light of these realities, the United States and the entire international community must adopt a concrete strategy for the future that will enable the Afghan peace process to succeed quickly.

First Kashmir, then trade, the best decision

 (Jtndik Spacial Report)

Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium, a beautiful country in Europe but also the capital of Europe, with international government offices, parliaments, international courts, and policy centers, meaning Brussels has an important role to play in world politics. I was in Brussels when I learned from some journalist friends that today the former Federal Minister of Law and Human Rights of Pakistan will not only address the international media on law and justice and human rights in Pakistan but also answer the questions of journalists. Will also give The event was organized by the European Union's human rights department.

The first shock when I arrived at the event was that most of the officials in the EU's human rights office were from India, whose body language It was clear that they did not have positive feelings for Pakistan, which I mentioned to my friends. Shortly afterward, the conference hall was filled with foreign journalists and representatives of human rights organizations in the European Union. Shortly afterward, former Federal Minister for Law and Human Rights Ahmar Bilal Sufi arrived and began lecturing on the rule of law and the improving human rights situation in Pakistan. Leading members of the UN, international media, and members of human rights organizations were also listening to the lecture. Ahmar Bilal Sufi spoke for about 40 minutes, after which the question and answer session began. The event was hosted by a local woman who The first person to be invited to ask questions was introduced He said that he belongs to the province of Balochistan in Pakistan and he is a member of the Bugti tribes there, after which the question was what to do, he started hurling insults against the Pakistani government and state institutions which were being noted by foreign journalists.

After giving the anti-Pakistan man a chance to speak for ten minutes, another Pakistani man was invited to ask a question. The man said he belonged to a Karachi-based linguistic organization and then for the next ten minutes he also told the Pakistani government. And started using foul language against state institutions, I was surprised to see that in this important city of Europe, anti-Pakistan work is being done on the agenda of the enemy when the conversation of the person from Karachi ended. Some foreign journalists questioned the former Federal Minister for Law and Human Rights on the allegations made by the people of Balochistan and Karachi instead of his lecture. Ahmar Bilal Sufi tried to present Pakistan's position correctly but internationally. The media was only interested in anti-Pakistan questions He also raised his hand to ask a question and then after a lot of effort, Mike was in my hand. I regretted that there should have been representatives of Indian-occupied Kashmir here today who are against human rights from India. Explaining the violations, as far as Balochistan is concerned, it is the Sardari system and the Sardars who are responsible for the problems there, who keep their people away from education and development.

They get government jobs in the gas company and keep them as their personal employees. While living in Balochistan, they work for Indian interests. Today, if the person who has spoken against Pakistan in the name of Balochistan is investigated, it will be known. How deep is their relationship with India, not only that, the allegations of oppression in Karachi are also a bundle of lies, Karachi is a city of 20 million people, there is the best education, the best business, law, and order? The situation is also better than many big cities in the world, but when one sits in one's own country and goes to one's own country If he works on the agenda of the enemy, then it is the responsibility of the national security agencies to fulfill their responsibilities. After my talk, the ceremony ended and many diplomatic officials praised me and said that this is the case in Balochistan and Karachi. Both men defame Pakistan by taking funds from the Indian intelligence agency.

The Indian lobby in Europe is very strong, which weakens Pakistan's position. However, the government needs to be more vigilant at the international level. The decision to postpone trade with India is also welcome as India's global conspiracies over Kashmir, Balochistan and Karachi are ongoing, which will make relations with India meaningless and futile.
