Not one but Three Eids… Fantastic*

This year Pakistanis living abroad are having not one but three Eids.

Fantastic; isn’t it.
Pakistan is not the only country where certain group of peoples especially in Pakhtoon Khawa have a craving to celebrate Eid day of their own.

In UK, Europe and in USA too Pakistanis are set to have their Eid day of their own choice and there are three days that peoples will be getting together to say namaz e Eid and celebrate it.
From the information provided by Royal Observatory for start and end dates of Ramadan 2011, it is very clear that Ramadan in London should have started on 2nd August and Eid day after the end of Ramadan would be on 1st September.

ON 1st Aug Crescent moon was visible under perfect conditions around 20:58 which set at 21:09 marking the 2nd of August as first day of Ramadan.

Royal Observatory offices at London Euston also say that on 31 Aug Crescent moon will easily be visible around 20:03 and will set at about 20:18 marking the Eid Day as on 1st of September.

Mager; yahaan tou Apna apna chand hey; Jab chaey nikal lo
Apni Eid—Apna mazaa.

But how unfortunate this Muslim lot stands away from reality and the knowledge that even Eid comes but rather than uniting them—-it splits them further.

But Kids they ask:

Why there are Three Eids Dad: what is the right day to have our Eid?

I don’t have the answer; can you please throw some ligh

Black Hole Swallows Up a Star

Scientists say that, for the first time, they have witnessed a black hole swallowing a distant star.
The event took place about 3.9 billion years ago in a distant galaxy in the constellation Draco. Radiation from the blast just reached Earth in March, its “intense” and “unusual high-energy flares” alerting scientists that something big was happening.
Watch the power of the universe in the animation below, depicting what scientists saw when the black hole “shredded” and “consumed” the star. —BF

Be a Proud Pakistani

Some two hundred years back, American got their independence from the same oppressor who was still holding us as slaves in Indian subcontinent. Whereas most of the peoples then in America were the European criminals who were fugitives and had escaped from all over Europe and got settled there to secure new free lives for them. The Muslims who were now enslaved by British in subcontinent were one who used to rule this land.

It took our ancestors some 170 years after the Americans got their independence to secure their own home land…. free from Briton and more importantly also from the local majority dominance of Hindus.

But history is cruel that it takes great toll out of people; when they seek turning their clock back. Pakistan secured its independence but ran into its existential trouble that not only the British colonial power but its immediate neighbor India did not accept us as an independent state…. So Pakistan eventually in quest of its survival has become a — security state. And most of the resources that Pakistan could lay hand on, have been going into building the multiple layers of its defenses.
If we only realize that even now— not only the immediate neighbors of our but the top most oppressor of the day— USA is very much present in our region; busy unleashing all its savagery to deplete this scared land of ours—Pakistan.

My Friends; lets realize these facts… that we have to defend this God given land of ours with whatever the capabilities we have and with all the strengths that we could muster.
This world belongs to the people who are educated, bear innovative minds and may lay hand on the economic resources. Our full endeavor has to be—- to get ourselves educated and sharpen our minds to be innovative.

At present many a forces are working against the very existence of our land. They are found even infiltrated our defense line too; these forces want to see us divided in lingual and our ethnic line and if we go down this road —we are making our enemy’s job easy; then we are easy prey for them.
Let’s beware—- of the people who are present within our ranks; they tend to remain ignorant of the above facts and for mere their own personal grievances and bad experiences in their lives; tend to propagate… nothing but despondency and are always seen undermining the national institutions and their capabilities. This trend may make us living in a divided house of Ghosts.

In any case; Pakistanis may not be compared with American in their day to day lives and their advancement in technology and the achievements. While trekking on these roads; they are some 170 years more senior and ahead of us. But one thing is sure good in favor for us that; whereas American had to invent the wheel in the line of technology; we need not to reinvent it.

With Allah’s grace; Pakistanis are the most resilient peoples and have always proved—to be a notch above the rest.

Sure under all the circumstance to remain stead fast and have their last laugh —–belongs to Pakistanis.

Enough is Enough

This news is in circulation that peoples from all walks of life have started crying that in the wake of prevalent anarchy, Military be asked to take charge of this country.

Dear Friends; this nation has come long way to secure its identity of Democratic order in the country. Let it be known that in Pakistan, we have shed the old dictatorial culture and got the democratic system for our living. This is too sacred a system for our survival. This sapling must not be spoiled by the suggestions that once again military be asked to stage a coup; where by military marches in and before it takes charge of the affaires it is found that all the looter and pilferers they already have transferred their asset abroad and have fled the country.

These stooges; while sitting in their safe havens built in Europe and Dubai —start conspiring and wait for the day that military gets maligned of their dictatorial Raj, to the extent that it calls them back; gives them this country on a plate like Musharraf did and then once again they take a fresh start— of same old practice of looting and pilferages.

No; our military must never go down this line; we have seen this act repeated many times. Military has only been earning their bad name in it of — their dictatorial ship. They must not do that.

It is like: Khaan peen nou Noor Bhari; tay Dhaoun (neck) Bhanaoun nou Jumma.
Mr Jumma (military) must not be maligned for the pilferages of NoorBhari (present government).

Our judiciary is very much alive.

In the wake of the prevalent state of anarchy in the country; it should declare that enough is enough; under our constitution, this is sole prerogative of judiciary to call it a day for the present regime.

*Call all the state organs which include the military force.

*Announce a state of emergency.

*Hand out the mandate to military with specific mission to complete the task in given times.

Let there be law and Order enforced on this land in a democratic way as per the constitution.

14th August 1947

14th August is not only the day that we must celebrate that some sixty-four years ago Pakistan was created as an independent state; it got its independence from the western colonial powers of oppressions and removed the yoke of slavery but it also marks the day when the Muslims who had previously ruled the subcontinent for last 500 years, had also secured a separate land of their own that Muslim never wanted to remain caged in India and be ruled by majority Hindus of subcontinent.
