Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday said, in his remarks in National Assembly’s ongoing session summoned after Mumbai evidences were declared not proofs but mere information by the government of Pakistan, political wisdom and maturity is the need of the time to tackle all the present issues instead of power. Situation after Mumbai attacks, has changed a great deal and world is now backing Pakistan
Meanwhile on Tuesday Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Tariq Majid has said that the world must stop criticizing Pakistan.
This surely is one confused leadership

A previously-unknown pro-Taliban group, Ansar Wa Mohajir, has claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s bomb explosion in Lahore and the earlier rocket attacks on Dera Ismail Khan.
Toofan Wazir, identifying himself as a commander and spokesman of the group, phoned The News from somewhere in North Waziristan to claim responsibility for the two attacks. He threatened more attacks against the security forces and the government installations to avenge the two recent US missile strikes in North Waziristan in which several militants belonging to the Punjab were killed.
According to Toofan Wazir, the US drones fired the missiles at Pakistani targets with the agreement and cooperation of the government of Pakistan. He said revenge would be taken from both the Americans and the Pakistan government. In Pakistan, he warned, suicide bombings would be carried out and bombs would be planted and exploded at important government installations.
Toofan Wazir, which doesn’t appear to be his real name, claimed his men were “Ansar” who hosted the “Mohajir” or refugees who had come from different countries and also from places in Pakistan to find refuge in Waziristan. He said the group was committed to protect the foreigners who were the guests of local tribesmen.
Interestingly other news channel from pakistan were earlier blaming India for these blasts.
Remember this guy
He had said that the Americans “are going to surrender or be burned in their tanks. They will surrender, it is they who will surrender”. Al-Sahhaf claimed that there were no American troops in Baghdad, and that the Americans were committing suicide by the hundreds at the city’s gates.
He gained something of a cult following in the west, appearing on T-shirts, cartoons, and from internet phenomena came satirical websites. One such site featured sound bites of the minister, as well as photoshopped pictures of him on the Star Wars Death Star, at The Battle of Waterloo and at the D-Day landings, in all cases maintaining that “everything is just fine.”
He reminds us of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi , who has been constantly reminding his citizen that “Pakistan is capable of defending itself”. He added, “I want to give a message to India that we are the torch-bearers of peace and remain committed to our desire for peace…Contrary to our reasonable, cooperative and non-aggressive attitude, some elements from India are issuing provocative statements.”
Maybe it is time his people start asking him regarding the drone attacks by US as “innocent” Pakistani’s are being killed everyday (As he maintains that there are no trerrorists in Pakistan)
We dont see the capable pakistani army defending Pakistan in that case.
|Ajmal Qasab is Pakistan resident?|

ARID KOT: Ajmal Qasab, allegedly involved in Mumbai attacks and presently in Indian custody, is a resident of Farid Kot, Pakistan.
Geo News team that arrived in Farid Kot to investigate this, started inquiring the local people about Ajmal Qasab. Most of the people seemed unwilling to speak. However, a man or two confirmed that Ajmal Qasab’s father Amir Azam Qasab used to sell ‘Pakora’ in the area while his son Ajmal Qasab worked in the crop fields.
It was investigated that Ajmal Qasab ran away from home four years ago because his father failed to provide him new clothes on Eid as his son desired.
Pakistan’s foreign ministry has released a statement that seems to suggest that Islamabad might want consular access to Kasab, even if it is informally and in the presence of Indian officials.
The statement reads thus,” Our own investigations cannot proceed beyond a certain point without provision of credible information and evidence pertaining to Mumbai attacks. Despite our requests, no evidence or information has been shared with the Government by India so far. Any criminal investigation proceeds from the scene of crime to the criminal. This is standard investigation procedure”.
Pakistan’s representative to the United Nations, Abdullah Haroon Hussain said that Pakistan must be given access to Kasab. When asked that asking for consular access would mean an admission that Kasab is Pakistani, Hussain said Islamabad wants access to make sure this is established.
“It is in the benefit of India to allow consular access to this person to the Pak authorities. The sooner that happens the better it would be for both countries. We should both walk towards each other and no one should be seen standing at one spot. If in your presence we access him that’s a good gesture of working together, even if he is not a Pakistani national. If he’s not found a Pakistani, then he s not a Pakistani. But if he is, we’ll all find out, won’t we? But until then, we don’t know for a fact and can’t identify the person as a Pakistani. We will say these are your (India’s) allegations,
Pakistanis’s are fooling no one but themselves , when they say they are awiting concrete proof.
A committee of the United Nations Security Council has placed sanctions against Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a front organisation for Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), declaring it a terrorist organisation.
The committee has added Jamaat and four Lashkar leaders to a list of firms and people facing sanctions for ties to al-Qaeda or the Taliban the UN said.
The terrorists added to the sanctions list include Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, which the UN statement described as the leader of the group.
The others are Pakistan-born Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the chief of operations, Haji Muhammad Ashraf, the chief of finance, and India-born Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq, described as a financier for the group who served as its chief in Saudi Arabia.
However, it remains to be seen whether Pakistan upholds the UNSC sanctions.
