There is a very strong opinion in Pakistan to get 70-75% of money back and then let these go. It costs money to keep corrupt leaders incarcerated (for their Security etc) and the only positive is that it massages the egos of certain people.
Election is over and nobody cares if Nawaz stays in Jail or exits the country. They do need his money!
You may increasingly see other releases and plea deals where Pakistan gets some of the money back.
You may have seen British police arrest, question and then release the chief money launderer for PPP:
Its the money which is important and not jailing people.
Pakistan is dead important for America and they simply cannot let it go.
A few years when India amassed its forces on the border and were poised to enter Pakistan, Saudi air force donated an entire squadron of F-15 to negate Indian BVR (beyond Visual range) capability to give Pakistan eyes in the skies (pictures are on the forum, somewhere).
You have to ask yourself, why would Saudia (a clear American poodle) donate American technology to Pakistan?
There are three possible reasons:
India is a strategic American ally and YET despite American sanctions they are buying Iranian oil:
America has put sanctions on China for buying Russian Su-35 and S-400
But India is also buying the same and knows about the sanctions…
Charbahar cannot match Gawadar in terms of natural geography and capacity
Iran sooner or later will join CBI, it’s the new gravy train and Iran will need a piece of the action as their economy is faltering
As I always said, countries to what is best for them and look after their national interests. It is in the national interest of Iran to take sides with Russia & China. Shia-Sunni fight may be important but it does not pay bills or buy Roti!
P.S: As the economy of Britain worsens, I see them closely aligning themselves with Pakistan (due to CPEC), British have always been very smart tactical traders. India doesn’t give two whistles to Britain but they know that they can make two pennies in Pakistan. All they need to do is arrest a few people in London and give some (stolen) money back and in turn they get a piece of the action in CPEC.
PTI Government uses Mosque speakers in Punjab to announce social measures.
P.S: Mosque speakers in Pakistan are NOT just used for Adhan, they are used for inciting sactarianism by everyone.
Islamabad: Saudi Arabia has agreed to withdraw an additional Umrah fee of SAR2,000 (Dh1,958) for Pakistanis following a request made by Prime Minister Imran Khan during his recent visit to Saudi Arabia.
The information was shared by secretary of religious affairs Mohammad Mushtaq with the senate committee that met to discuss the problems faced by Pakistanis while performing Haj and Umrah.
The chairman of senate standing committee on religious affairs, senator Maulana Abdul Ghafour Haideri, said he had received several complaints about the “discriminatory tax” of SAR2,000 by Saudi government on Pakistani pilgrims performing more than one Umrah within two years.
Mushtaq explained that the rationale behind the Saudi move was to discourage repeated Umrah by some people and that the same tax had been levied on all pilgrims. “However this new tax of SAR2,000 on people performing more than one Umrah within two years has been abolished for the people of Egypt and Turkey after requests were made by governments of these countries to the Saudi government,” Mushtaq said.
The matter had been first taken up with the Saudi authorities in Islamabad and later “the prime minister during his visit to Saudi kingdom took up the matter with the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman and he has agreed to abolish the tax,” the secretary said, adding that the Saudi government would notify the waiver soon.
The committee was also informed about this year’s Haj operations and that the ministry of religious affairs would start preparations for Haj 2019 in January.
Saudi Arabia was the first foreign destination of Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Imran Khan where he held meetings with Saudi King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud and the Crown to enhance cooperation in political, defence, economic, commercial, and cultural sectors, as well as developing “joint ventures.”
A recent meeting between Pakistan’s minister for information Chaudhry Fawad Hussain and Ambassador of Saudi Arabia Nawaf Bin Saeed Al Malki also highlighted the close relations between the two friendly countries. The information minister said Pakistan has always valued its cordial and friendly relations with the brotherly country, while the Saudi Ambassador asserted that Saudi Arabia considers Pakistan a friend with whom Riyadh enjoys time-tested close relations.
I am not a poet or Dr76 or Alif but isn't the dude's pen name "Hud-Hud" like mentioned in the Qur'aan:
وَتَفَقَّدَ ٱلطَّيۡرَ فَقَالَ مَا لِىَ لَآ أَرَى ٱلۡهُدۡهُدَ أَمۡ ڪَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡغَآٮِٕبِينَ
[27:20] And he took attendance of the birds and said, "Why do I not see the hoopoe - or is he among the absent?
I wrote on the 24th of August 2018:
He needs to be lot less like "Imran Khan" and more like a Politician at this time and he has shown no capability of that over the years. He only has one gear!
This was an issue for the Supreme Court and nothing to do with Imran Khan BUT Imran Khan opened his big mouth and changed the topic and owned it.
Is she deranged???
Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassalllam) was from Bani-Israel???
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
