Project Veritas exposé on Pfizer reveals pharma giant’s plan to manipulate Covid vaccines

An undercover investigation by Project Veritas caught on camera a high ranking Pfizer scientist revealing that the pharmaceutical giant was exploring ways to mutate the Covid-19 virus for profit. The investigative journalist of Project Veritas honey trapped Jordan Trishton Walker, Director of R&D Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning at Pfizer. On their ‘date’ the Project Veritas journalist asked Jordan Walker about Pfizer’s vaccine development programme for Covid-19 virus. Jordan Walker blurted out the truth in order to impress his ‘date’, unaware that the journalist was video recording their entire conversation. Walker explained that Pfizer was actively mutating the virus by infecting monkeys in order to preempt vaccine development for upcoming Covid variants so as to make heavy profits later on. Walker called Pfizer’s research as “Directed Evolution”. Pfizer’s efforts are similar to the controversial “gain of function” research that enables virologists to make viral infections more lethal.

“One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses,” Pfizer scientist Jordan Walker explains to the Project Veritas undercover journalist on video. On further probing Walker goes on to say “Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them.” He even goes on to refute the claims that the outbreak of the Corona virus in Wuhan was organic. Jordan Walker says “You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere. Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere,” he said. “It’s bullsh*t”.

Jordan Walker was engrossed in this conversation with the undercover Project Veritas journalist when James O’ Keefe, Founder-Editor Project Veritas walked in to ask some direct questions. “Why does Pfizer want to hide from the public that they are mutating the Covid viruses?” James O’Keefe asked a pointed question to Pfizer executive. At this point Jordan Walker became hysterical as he understood that whatever he was saying to impress his “date” had been videotaped and that he had revealed the sinister plans of Pfizer. “I am literally a liar. I was trying to impress a person on date. By lying,” blurted the panicked Pfizer scientist James Trishton Walker. He later on tried to physically assault James O’Kefee and his cameraperson and also broke their iPad.

The investigative video was released on 26 January 2023 that immediately went viral and had garnered over 41.7 million views on Twitter at the time of writing this report. Millions had also watched and commented on this video report on YouTube but YouTube removed the video citing their dubious regulations.

A couple of days later Pfizer issued a convoluted press statement that reads like a desperate PR attempt to salvage pride. However Pfizer’s statement did note that “…in a limited number of cases when a full virus does not contain any known gain of function mutations, such virus may be engineered to enable the assessment of antiviral activity in cells…” (see photo below).

Dead bodies of ‘Missing’ Baloch found in occupied Balochistan

The body of a missing youth was recovered from Quetta, the capital of occupied Balochistan, while the body of a missing person was also recovered from Khuzdar district.

The mutilated body of Mohammad Sultan Marri, son of Sarang, who went missing 28 days ago in the capital of Balochistan, was recovered from the hilly area of Eastern Bhai Pass today. He had earlier been taken into custody by the local Pakistani administration and then to the hospital.

The other body recovered is that of a person named Muhammad Idris son of Muhammad Ibrahim Sukna Khatan Latifabad, who had gone missing a week ago from Khuzdar district. His body was recovered from the mountains of Kalgali on the border of Basima and Sorab on Thursday. The local people reported that, the Levies Force reached the spot and took possession of the body and shifted it to the Civil Hospital Basima.
It is feared that Pakistani forces have killed them after forcibly abducting them.Despite severe internal problems, the state forces and its intelligence agencies continue to oppress the people of Balochistan.Over the last two decades more than 30,000 Baloch people have gone ‘missing’ across Pakistan-occupied Balochistan (POB) and another 10,000 Baloch people have been killed by Pakistani security forces under its ‘kill and dump’ policy.

Pakistan’s economy is on the brink of collapse’: Financial Times

The leading British daily leading newspaper the Financial Times analysts have written about the economy of Pakistan and that there are fears of the Pakistani economy sinking.

According to the Financial Times, Pakistan’s power outages and a severe shortage of foreign exchange have made it difficult to conduct business as officials scramble to avert a deepening crisis and revive the IMF program.

The report further mentions that containers full of imported goods are piling up at Pakistan’s ports as exporters are unable to make payments due to inability to get dollars. Further, various factories, including textiles, are closing due to shortage of raw materials and energy problems.Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal told the Financial Times that the country had “drastically” reduced imports in an attempt to conserve foreign currency.

UN appointed observers must quit Kashmir

India at the UN Security Council
In 1948, India approached the UN Security Council with the request that Pakistan has armed and abetted an attack on the State of Jammu and Kashmir with the motive of annexing it. The State formally acceded to the Indian Union on 26 October 1947. The Security Council’s mandate is that an illegal occupation of the territories of another country will be vacated and towards that end, the UN will provide the necessary support to the aggrieved party to recover its lands.

India approached the Security Council on 1st January 1948 requesting that the State of Jammu and Kashmir, a part of the Indian Union by virtue of the ruler signing the Instrument of Accession, has been attacked by the gunmen armed and abetted by Pakistan, should be vacated.

To the great shock of Nehru and the Indian nation, the Security Council blatantly favoured Pakistan and made her a party to the dispute instead of declaring her an aggressor.

Politicizing the issue
The reason why the Anglo-American bloc gave outright support to Pakistan was that Pakistan had aligned with the capitalist bloc and India was close to the Soviet bloc. The capitalist bloc wanted a foothold in the sub-continent to disallow the Soviet Union to expand southwards to reach the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The Soviet expansion theory was a figment of the imagination of the capitalist bloc.  

Resolutions
The UN Security Council deliberately politicized the Kashmir issue and made a mess of the whole thing by equating the aggrieved with the aggressor. In 1948 and 1949 two consecutive resolutions were passed by the Security Council. The most important clause of the resolution was that Pakistan will withdraw all its fighting forces from the territory of the ruler of Jammu and Kashmir; India will reduce  the number of her combat forces and leave behind only such numbers as would be required to maintain law and order to run the administration smoothly. Once that was done, the Security Council would appoint a Plebiscite Administrator to conduct a plebiscite in the state to ascertain to which dominion the people of the State would like to accede.

Since the ceasefire had been announced on midnight of 31 December 1948, the Security Council decided to appoint an observers’ group to monitor that the ceasefire was not violated along the Line of Control (LOC) in J&K. It was called United Nation’s Military Observer Group for India and Pakistan or (UNMOGIP). The UN Security Council appointed the group mostly from the European member countries.

Abuse of office
Hindsight shows that this group, instead of honestly monitoring the situation on the ground, indulged in clandestine activities like spying on Indian troops and their movement etc. The truth is that the Indian government, already having burnt its fingers, was reluctant to accept the group. It was thrust on her. Even a Plebiscite Administrator viz, Admiral Nimitz, was also nominated by the capitalist group without the clauses of the Resolutions of Security Council having been fulfilled. However, India put its foot down and refused to accept the nominated Plebiscite Administrator on technical grounds.

Notwithstanding the unwillingness of the vast political leadership in India including those from the ruling class, the Government of India provided all facilities as were admissible under the protocol to the Observes Group. They had the freedom of crossing the LoC without obstruction. They lived a luxurious life with all facilities provided by the Indian government. More often than not they submitted false and fabricated reports to the Secretary-General castigating the Indian army for violating the ceasefire and other things.

The headquarters of the observers’ group became a hotbed of intrigues particularly when the armed insurgency broke out in J&K in 1990. The insurgent groups and their sympathizers among the majority population made it their practice to gather huge crowds of slogan chanters and bring them to the headquarters of the UN Observers, hand over petitions and fabricated reports of atrocities on the civilian population by the security forces. These false and fabricated reports were forwarded to the UN Security Council which found material to malign India.

Several times India lodged complaints with the Observers Group with the Security Council averring that the group had no business to respond to the petitions and protests of the civilian population of Kashmir and that they should restrict themselves to the mandate given by the UNSC.

As a result of India’s persistent complaints and also the group indulging in unwanted and unsolicited activities, the number of observers was reduced and only a small number were left behind.

Justification
There are reports that the External Affairs Ministry of the Government of India is proposing to ask the observer’s manpower to quit India. There is justification for that.

Firstly, the Kashmir question as was propped up by the security council is almost dead. It is dead because Pakistan has abused the plebiscite resolution since it has not withdrawn its fighting forces from Kashmir and has not vacated the part of J&K illegally occupied by it.

Secondly, Pakistan handed over more than 5,000 sq km of J&K State territory to China in 1963 which is an illegal act. The Security Couincil Resolution of 1949 states that no change will be made in the geography of J&K. Hence the Resolutions of the UNSC are null and void because the Security Council has not taken any action against the defaulter.

Thirdly the Kashmir issue is dead as far as the UNSC is concerned because under the various clauses of the UN Charter if two warring states enter into a negotiated bilateral deal, the UNSC loses the right to dispense with the dispute. This was categorically stated by Kofi Anan, the then Secretary General of the UN, when he was on an official visit to Pakistan. India and Pakistan have signed the Shimla Agreement in which they have committed to resolve the Kashmir issue bilaterally and through negotiations. This dispenses with the role of the UNSC and also the UN Observers in J&K.

Fourthly, although India is not obliged to undertake a plebiscite in J&K in the light of Pakistan having trampled the resolution of 1948 and 1949 under foot, even then India brought democratic dispensation to the people of J&K. Ever since the independence of India in 1947, no fewer than eight elections to the legislative assembly and as many elections to the parliament have been conducted in J&K. Most of these elections were witnessed by correspondents and observers from different countries and organizations like the European Union and the British Parliament. Therefore, as democracy has stabilized in J&K, and the Kashmir issue is dead for the UN, there is no logic or justification in asking the UNMOGIP to continue to be in the state with no assignment to complete or mandate to adhere to.

Pak’s abortive resolution
The tailpiece bought to this narrative is most interesting. In February 1994, Pakistan, incited by the capitalist bloc at the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva, brought a resolution against India highlighting the so-called violations of human rights in J&K. Pakistan, prompted by western godfathers, managed to rope in the OIC countries and left no stone unturned to pillory India. The situation was critical and the western bloc was happy that India would receive a thrashing.

But salutes to the then Prime Minister late PV Narasimha Rao, who played his cards like a veteran politician. He met the challenge on two fronts. One was that he brought a resolution in the parliament in which the government said that PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan are the territories of the Indian Union and Pakistan has forcibly and illegally occupied them since October 1947. India resolves that it has the will and strength to retake the part of its territory. This resolution has immensely impacted India’s Kashmir policy. The Reorganization Act of 2019 is the by-product of the same Resolution.

The second masterstroke played by PM Narasimha Rao was to send post haste a very important emissary (name will not be disclosed) to Iran to apprise the government of Iran about the truth of the Kashmir dispute. The emissary succeeded in his mission and just one hour before the debate on the draft resolution would begin, Iran declared its withdrawal from supporting the resolution. With Iran taking the decision, the OIC members fell one by one indicating to the chairman of the session that they were withdrawing their support to the resolution. In this way, India overcame a difficult situation, thanks to the late Narasimha Rao.

Pakistan’s effort of defaming India in the comity of nations has been defeated by the unilateral decisions about the governance of the J&K. Under that logic, India is perfectly right in demanding that the Observation Group winds up in Kashmir, and the sooner the better.

Time to act
There is another aspect to the issue. Everybody knows that owing to the political, economic and social failure of Pakistan, that state is on the verge of dismemberment. For many years in the past and more particularly during the last six months, there have been massive anti-Pakistan protests in PoJK and Pak-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan demanding that India take back POJK and POGB as it is legally her territory and they want liberation from the tyrannical and discriminatory rule of Islamabad. They are raising Indian flags and encomiums for Prime Minister Modi.

We will recall that during all these decades of the Kashmir dispute, Pakistan has been invoking international law for extending “moral, political and diplomatic” support to Kashmiris. India should also shed all inhibitions and come out openly in support of the freedom of oppressed people of POJK, Pak-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan (POGB) and Balochistan from the stranglehold of the Punjabi bureaucracy and Pakistan Army.

It may be said in passing that the Narendra Modi government has been repeatedly saying that it has the agenda of implementing the Parliaments’ unanimous resolution of 22 February 1994 and it is looking for an opportunity to take back the territory usurped by Pakistan. The army commanders have said that they are ready to march to Muzaffarabad, once instructions come from the Defence Ministry. We hope that the government of India will not waste more time because this is the perfect time for action.

BBC: Voice of the World or Voice of Slander ?

Once upon a time, the BBC was the voice of the world. I remember, as a young journalist covering India, that we all listened to the BBC radio, as we knew that it was more truthful than the All India Radio or Doordarshan. Indeed when Indira Gandhi was assassinated, it was the BBC that first broke the news.

Great power is often misused. I reported on the valley of Kashmir from 1989 to 2000, and Mark Tully, the Chief of Bureau of BBC India was the guru to us all – western as well as Indian journalists. That means that what the BBC uttered, everybody would repeat. Unfortunately, Tully then kept saying that the Indian Congress Government (not the BJP, mind you) was lying when it was accusing Pakistan of training, arming and financing Kashmiri militants, and sending them back across the Line Of Control. But it made sense to me, and I was probably the only one who wrote so, both in my dispatches for Le Figaro, France’s National Daily, and articles for Indian newspapers, such as The Hindustan Times or The Indian Express. I was also a witness of the ethnic cleansing of the Kashmiri Hindus – 350,000 of them chased out of their ancestral lands and houses, for no other reason that they belonged to another religion than Islam. There again, the BBC kept quiet, and Mark Tully to this day, has not acknowledged this near genocide.

I have often criticized Narendra Modi, but the true story of the Godhra riots has never been told by the BBC. It started because 59 Hindus, 32 of them innocent women and children, were burnt to death like animals in the Sabarmati Express, because they had just come back from Ayodhya. This was the spark that ignited a long pent-up anger, and Hindus from the Shudras to Brahmins, came down in the streets in uncontrollable fury, and started killing muslims. I am not going to condone this type of absolute violence, but let me say two things. One, that it is not Mr Modi who perpetrated these crimes with his own hands ; and two, that if my wife or my daughter had been burnt to death by criminals, I would have also gone down and killed. The only question is : did Narendra Modi wait nearly 24 hours before calling the army – he must have also been extremely moved emotionally by the Sabarmati holocaust. Of course the BBC never mentioned this first extremely important piece of gory news, the Sabarmati Express genocide, and jumped immediately to the wrong conclusion that Mr Modi ordered his people to kill mercilessly.

The second part of the BBC documentary deals with more recent events, like the removal of Article 370 in 2019. Again, intentionally bad journalism. The Kashmiri Muslims not only evicted all Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists from the Valley of Kashmir, but also Nehru made a provision that no citizen from other part of India could own a business in Kashmir, buy a house and settle there. This did not stop the Kashmiri Muslims from pouring all over India, from Delhi to Pondicherry, and cornering today the souvenir/carpet/ shawls/papier maché market, selling on the sides, drugs or dealing in slush money. This was an injustice that Mr Modi set right – and he must be praised for it. I must also say that Kashmiri Muslims today portray themselves as victims, but I have seen with my own eyes that they started a war against India in the name of Islam.

This said, I disagree with the banning by the Indian Government of the BBC series “The Modi Question”. The BJP Media Cell is always on the back foot and does not know how to handle press matters. What is needed, when you deal with western media, is a concise, cartesian and detailed reply, like the one I have given above, rather than emotional reaction that reinforces the western media’s cliché of Narendra Modi being a dictator.

There have been many scandals plaguing the BBC in recent times, including pedophilia and sexual misconducts. Last week, the BBC chairman, Richard Sharp, who himself is a multimillionaire, acknowledged that he had facilitated a loan of 800 000 British pounds, (a bit more than 8 crores Indian rupees) to the ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It is the same Boris Johnson, who, in gratitude, named Richard Sharp (who has offered to resign) Chairman of the BBC. The ‘colonial mindset’ accusations by the BJP spokespersons against the BBC, appear to me also a little cliched. The young journalists who today work at BBC have no idea, or even interest, in what their great great grand-fathers did in India. I would rather state that the BBC, like CNN of the New York Times, or Le Monde, possess a great ignorance of modern India, and that they hold ancient and outdated prejudices as absolute truths.

Finally, let me say that 99% of the BBC-India staff is indian. Why, instead of accusing BBC London, can’t the Indian government deal firmly with its own citizens? One of the most insidious and anti-indian BBC journalists is Geeta Pande – who is a Nepali. In China, or even in Indonesia, she would have long ago been escorted back to her country. Firmness begins at home.

Paki regime commits genocide of rare wildlife in POJK

The forests of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir are home to rare species of birds, but due to illegal hunting by establishment officials, including Pak Army officers, and local state agents, rare wildlife is being exterminated and many rare bird species are missing.

According to local sources, the destruction of forest and rare wildlife is taking place at a rapid pace, with officers buying off local agents for the expensive hunting of Markhor (screw-horned goat). Official hunters secretly hunt more than ten Markhors at the request of the big poachers and deliver the meat of the rare animal to high ranking people of Gilgit and Islamabad. Dozens of local hunters go to the small canals and hunt this rare animal and eat the meat themselves. Locals stated that for a few bucks, the forests were being cleared. For temporary compensation, 110 k.m. of Diamar land is being submerged and that the officials in involved are making money by allowing hunting of these rare fauna.

In addition, the reserves of minerals buried in the mountains are reaching the world market in whopping prices leaving the land,minerals, forests and wildlife vulnerable. The people of POK feel the need to raise a voice for the protection of forest and rare wildlife and that ecological balance cannot be compromised to serve the interests of a few.

Pak Army proxies orchestrate protests across Gilgit-Baltistan (POGB) to cheat locals

0

Massive protests rocked Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan (POGB) during the first fortnight of this new year when thousands of locals braved sub-zero temperatures shouting slogans against the Paki regime. And then these protests were called off. Abruptly. The restive crowd pacified and sent back to their cozy homes. Why and how? Because the protests, sloganeering and subsequent grants were all stage managed by GHQ Rawalpindi.

The Panjabi generals, brigadiers and colonels have placed their proxies across Pak-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan who can organize and call-off protests at their whims. These Pak Army officers may have never proved their mettle in the battlefield but they have indeed mastered chicanery. Local residents of Gilgit, Skardu and other parts of Baltistan division are dispensable pawns for the Pakistani ‘establishment’ that uses them as tissue paper in the larger gambit.

So, at a time when celebrations began across the world to welcome the new year 2023 rumours flew thick and fast across Gilgit-Baltistan that people would soon go hungry as wheat price is set to hit the roof and that the electricity bills will skyrocket. At the behest of GHQ Rawalpindi the proxies in POGB stirred up local people’s sentiments about the possibility of sleeping empty stomach and freezing during icy cold winters. Rawalpindi sent instructions to a select few ‘leaders’ in the Awami Action Committee, Aman Committee Gilgit and Anjuman-e-Tajiran Skardu (trader’s union) to give a clarion call for protests.  

Agha Ali Rizvi, a local Shia Sheikh, put his weight behind these protesters offering the much needed Islamic ‘sanction’ as no demonstration can be deemed successful unless backed by Islamist clerics. Interestingly, Shia cleric Agha Ali Rizvi’s relations with Pakistan Army goes back several years and the cleric unabashedly invokes Karbala and Hussain to stir up passion amongst the predominantly Shia population of Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan. In return Rawalpindi rewards Agha Ali Rizvi with government contracts, projects and doles of cash. 

All this meant that people stepped out from their homes even when temperature hovered around minus eight to minus ten degrees Celsius. The emotive issues had struck a chord with the populace and people staged a sit-in at Skardu. Soon protests and demonstrations started in other parts of Baltistan division and in Gilgit; the protesters demanded restoration of subsidy on wheat and tax breaks on electricity bills. As the protesting crowd grew bigger it brought in the contentious demand that Paki forces stop illegal land grabbing.

Slyly, the Paki regime let these protests reach a crescendo so as to let the masses feel that they could force the ‘Paki regime’ to bow down and thence accept their demand to stop illegal land grabbing. Almost for a fortnight these protests continued to fester in Gilgit, Skardu and other parts of Baltistan.

A fortnight later GHQ Rawalpindi pulled the strings. Khalid Khurshid, the alleged chief minister of Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan (POGB) called the ‘protest leaders’ for talks. Agha Ali Rizvi and the coterie of local stooges projected this as people’s victory that brought the ‘Pakistani establishment’—euphemism for Pakistan Army—to its knees. In reality the timing was ripe for Pakistan Army to offer their sugar-coated poison pill to the masses and reward the proxies for their efficient services. Mining deals, government contracts, plum government positions and hard cash were given to these proxies for their ‘services’.

Of the protester’s set of demands, illegal land grabbing by Pakistan Army in Gilgit-Baltistan was the most contentious. Nothing changed on this. Earlier Pakistan Army grabbed land across Gilgit-Baltistan in the name of erstwhile Khalsa /Khalistan Sarkar (the name Khalsa/Khalistan Sarkar continued to be used in official documents since Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s time). Khalid Khurshid gleefully announced the name change from ‘Khalsa/Khalistan Sarkar’ to ‘Government Land’. Apart from the nomenclature gymnastics this effectively means no changes on the ground. The implicit meaning of the verbal skulduggery means illegal land grabbing will continue unabated across Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan but it would now be called ‘Government Land’ (read Pakistani land). The naked loot of natural resources and demographic engineering of settling outsiders in POGB will also continue.

Even the protester’s demand for wheat subsidy was given a raw deal. Khalid Khurshid said a committee would be formed to decide on the finer details for continuation of wheat subsidy and the recommendations of this committee would in turn be sent to Islamabad for ratification. As expected, no timelines for the said committee’s workings and/or recommendations were laid out.

The only saving grace for the POGB protesters was the withdrawal of newly introduced electricity tax (Electricity Line Rent) of sixty rupees per family, a grant deceptively designed to give an impression to the protesters that their campaign was not in vain, rather the Rawalpindi establishment had indeed bowed down.

Pakistani ‘establishment’ agreed to suspend the additional electricity tax in POGB (Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan).

A few protesters did point out Rawalpindi’s hogwash but their murmurs were drowned in the loud cacophony of victory claims made by Agha Ali Rizvi and other leaders of Anjuman-e-Tajiran and Awami Committee. Yet again the Shia cleric Agha Ali Rizvi and the coterie of selected leaders put their weight and called off the protests.

GHQ Rawalpindi uses popular protests and demonstration as a tool to continue its loot and land grabbing in Gilgit-Baltistan by planting stooges amongst the masses. The obvious question is why should Paki ‘establishment’ go to such great lengths to continue its illegal land grab and loot of natural resources when the network of proxies runs deep within Gilgit-Baltistan.

“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves,” the Communist dictator Lenin had explained. Despite all efforts to turn local residents of Gilgit-Baltistan into zombies there is a surge of nationalism, especially amongst the younger population. This younger lot has begun questioning and opposing Paki regime at all forums. Rawalpindi doesn’t want to budge and wants to rein these restive teenagers and youngsters from metamorphosing into a formidable opposition. Pakistan Army was only following Lenin’s words in letter and spirit when it let the opposition against itself to fester for a fortnight in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Manzoor Pashteen announces worldwide protests against Rao Anwar’s acquittal

Manzoor Ahmed Pasheen, head of Pashtun Protection Movement has announced for a worldwide protest on 25 January against the acquittal of Rao Anwar, the killer of Naqeeb Masood, an aspiring model who was murdered in controversial circumstances, triggering an outpouring of condemnations on social media and countrywide protests by civil society against Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Malir Rao Anwar and his team.

Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Court acquitted all the accused including former SSP Rao Anwar while pronouncing the verdict in the Naqeebullah murder case yesterday. It took 5 years to complete the hearing. It sparked off a debate regarding fake contests and particularly criticism of former SSP Malir Rao Anwar, who was linked to the case.The court stated that the prosecution has failed to prove its case against the accused.On Sunday, family members of the slain man and civil society representatives gathered in front of the Karachi Press Club to demand strict punishment for former SSP Anwar and his team ahead of the court judgement.

A case had been registered against former SSP Rao Anwar and about 2 dozen of his subordinates on 13 January 2018, for killing Naqeebullah and 3 others in a fake police encounter by calling them ‘Taliban militants’. In March 2019, the court acquitted Rao. Anwar and 17 of his subordinates were indicted for the murder of 4 people in the suburbs of Karachi.

Yet another Hindu girl abducted in Sindh by Islamists

Another Hindu girl named Jamna aged 14 was abducted from Tando Allahyar, occupied Sindh and was later converted to Islam.
This is a second case of a minor Hindu girl who has been abducted in a span of a month.Pakistan’s forced abductions and conversions have been known to put minority women at risk. Young girls are abducted, converted into Islam and forced to marry or are kept as sex slaves or raped.

The government has been unsuccessful to implement the Child Marriage Restraint Act 1929 and the Sindh Child Marriage Restraint Act 2013, which raised the legal minimum age of marriage to 18 in Sindh province. The victim girls are largely left in the custody of their kidnapper throughout the trial process, where they are forced to claim that the conversion or marriage was consensual. So far no justice has been provided in similar cases of abduction and conversion.

Paki regime fires on Sindhis celebrating Sain GM Syed’s birthday

On the occasion of 119th birth anniversary of the founder of Sindhudesh movement G.M. Syed, Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement (JSFM) convoys from across Sindh reached the city of Sann, the birth place of G.M. Syed in occupied Sindh. Responding to the JSFM central committee call, thousands of Sindh-loving families along with their innocent children joined the caravans from different cities of occupied Sindh on wagons and buses while resisting violence, oppression inflicted by Pakistani forces and breaking all state barriers.

The convoy of vehicles that came from different cities held banners which read “No China Go China”, “CPEC corridor project rejected”, “Aliens should be expelled from Sindh”, “Free forcibly disappeared Sindhi and Baloch national workers and stop the forced conversion of Sindhi Hindu girls”. These banners were displayed along with the national flag of Sindhudesh.

The JSFM caravan broke the barriers set up by the Pakistani establishment and reached Sunshahr Dadu, where young men and women along with innocent children visited the shrine of their beloved leader and laid floral wreaths on his grave and paid homage with the national anthem and a national salute.

On the other hand, JSFM Chairman Sohail Abro, Vice Chairman Zubair Sindhi, General Secretary Ghulam Hussain Shabrani, Amar Azadi, Sudhu Sindhi, Hafeez Deshi and Parh Sindhu jointly stated that “today’s state attack has taken place in the political heart of Sindh and it will be remembered as a black day in our history. Today’s atrocities by the state of Pakistan on Sindhi people will be appropriately responded by people of Sindh at appropriate time”.

JSFM central leadership in their press release further added that the attack on Sann and state violence on national workers have been considered an attack on Sindh and that bullets and sticks cannot be answered with flowers, but “only with stones and sticks”.The statement further stated that all the workers who are victims of state terrorism, regardless of which party they belong to, JSFM owns everyone of them and consider them as its heirs because they belong to each other.

JSFM’s leadership in their joint statement stated that state violence, shootings and arrests against innocent children and women along with Syed’s followers and honorable national workers amount to open terrorism and it is imperative that international human rights organizations take note of  violence, terrorism perpetrated by Pakistani forces and that the victims need to be provided justice.
