In Afghanistan, US Aims to Win through Negotiation, that which it could Never Win through Battle

The United States has appreciated Pakistan’s role in facilitating reconciliation between the Afghan government and the Taliban, says a statement issued in Washington on 21 July. In a meeting with Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Syed Tariq Fatemi in Washington, US Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken also appreciated Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s efforts to reach out to India and Afghanistan and hoped that the initiative would help bring peace and prosperity to the region.  Mr Blinken lauded “Pakistan’s role in facilitating the reconciliation process between Afghan government and the Taliban,” said a statement issued by the Pakistan Embassy in Washington.

Traitors in Pakistan political and military leadership have been working day and night to secure the American influence in Afghanistan. Sincere mujahideen have prevented the Western crusaders from settling for over a decade and had they been left alone they would have ejected the Westerners as they had ejected the Soviet Russians. However, as a service to their masters in Washington, the traitors in Pakistan leadership have worked hard to protect the crusaders by launching attacks on the tribal Muslims. Now as the economically stretched and militarily fatigued America is making a limited withdrawal, the traitors are arranging talks to secure as much American influence in Afghanistan as possible.

The Khilafah will ensure that all political platforms and military operations are used in for the complete eradication of American influence in the Muslim Lands. And that inshaaAllah is sooner than most may think.


Regime has no Long Term Vision for Protection from Natural Disasters

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could not undertake a planned visit to Chitral on 21 July because of bad weather in Lahore. He later arrived in Islamabad and directed the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) to speed up relief and rescue efforts in coordination with the provincial authorities and the departments concerned.

Every year Pakistan faces severe suffering during annual natural disasters, heatwaves, monsoon floods and harsh winters. Yet, the regime has no long term vision for establishing flood infrastructure, such as separate channels for sewerage and flood water, to secure the people and instead makes a grand show of short- term fire-fighting measures. In fact, the regime will never make any such measures as it sole focus is implementing the colonialist agenda within the country. It is fully engaged in implementing the IMF dictates to prevent Pakistan emerging as a strong economy and the US State and Defence Departments plan to secure American influence in Afghanistan. The suffering of the people is not even in the regime’s peripheral vision in any given year.

During the time of the Khilafah, the ruler’s first and only priority was looking after the affairs of the Muslims. As an example, the Uthmani Khilafah specifically designed buildings, with shock absorbing foundations, to withstand Turkey’s frequent earthquakes to the extent that after the destruction of the Khilafah, these centuries-old buildings remained standing, whilst newer building collapsed during the Turkish earthquakes. It is such visionary leadership that Muslims require now.


Democracy Itself Misleads the People by Providing a Cover for the Colonialist Plans

The inquiry commission constituted to probe the allegations of rigging in the 2013 general elections has submitted its report to the government through the Ministry of Law and Justice, sources in the ruling PML-N told Dawn on 22 July 2015.

“Alhamdulillah! Reportedly, Judicial Commission has cleared elections 2013 and rejected PTI allegations on all three charges. Finally, truth prevails,” said Federal Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal in a message on the social website Twitter.

“In (the) name of rigging drama, ‘dharna’ havoc was played with the economy. In true democratic spirit, IK (Imran Khan) should accept responsibility for misleading the nation and youth. That is his personal choice. We need to, however, now move forward with greater determination to build economy for making up for the dharna year,” he said.

The rulers and their opposition have prove that they are an obstacle to moving forwards and building the economy. They are both guilty of misleading the nation and the youth. Whilst they are pointing fingers at each other, in the national assembly they are both approving of the major colonialist policies regarding the economy and foreign policies. Neither the opposition nor the rulers prevented the IMF dictations from being fully implemented, which has deprived Pakistan’s economy of huge assets through privatization. Neither the opposition nor the rulers halted the American dictations regarding India and Afghanistan, allowing India’s rise as a regional power. Democracy is a deception, giving an illusion of local decision making, when in fact, the ruling and opposition are merely rubber stamps for colonialist plans. They are able to act as rubber stamps, because in Democracy laws are made according to the whims and desires of men, with flagrant disregard for Islamic injunctions.

The way forwards is the abolition of Democracy and the establishment of the Khilafah. Only then will the Muslims affairs be secured for each and every law will be implemented according to the Quran and the Sunnah.


America Sides with India, Whilst Demanding More from Pakistan

US lawmakers, while pleased with Pakistan’s resolve to combat tribal fighters along the Afghan border, are pressing the country also to crack down on others. Chairman Royce and Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on his committee, had also sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, urging him to persuade Pakistan to fight all fighters, whether operating on its western or eastern borders.

The letter was stated: “The United States should pursue a different approach with the Pakistani government. We urge you to consider implementing travel restrictions, suspending portions of assistance, and sanctioning Pakistani officials that maintain relationships with designated terrorist groups.”

They argued that “such an approach would make clear that the US and Pakistan cannot have a true strategic partnership until Pakistan cuts all ties with terrorist organisations and renounces its use as an instrument of state policy.”  The Pakistan Embassy in Washington, said that Mr Fatemi continued his “intense engagements” with US lawmakers on 23 July as well.

America continues to exploit Pakistan considerable capabilities to further its ambitions. Moreover, with the pro-American Modi at the helm of India affairs, India is a secondary beneficiary of this policy. Pakistan has borne huge financial and human losses by engaging in a war on its Western border to fight the tribal resistance vigoruously besieging the American occupation. This is allowing America to salvage what it can of its influence in Afghanistan, whilst simultaneously holding open the doors for India, which now enjoys an unprecedented influence within Afghanistan. As for the Eastern border, America has ensured that the Raheel-Nawaz regime maintains the treacherous Musharraf-Aziz regime’s U-turn on Kashmir. Noble mujahideen which stretched the cowardly Indian troops for decades to breaking point in Kashmir are now being persecuted as criminals.

The armed forces must be led by an honoured Khaleefah to rally the Muslims, including the tribal fighters, as an effective force against the American and Indian occupying forces. Only then will prestige and dignity be restored to Muslims and Islam.
