  1. A still from Raees starring Mahira Khan and Shah Rukh Khan The association of India?s top producers has decided to uphold its ban on Pakistani actors, after it passed a similar resolution last year after Uri attacks. President of the Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association (IMPPA) told Indian media that the association had opposed payment of INR50 million to Fawad Khan for his role in a Karan Johar movie. IMPPA opposes casting Pakistani actors in Indian films, the president said. Far-right Hindu groups have protested against various films starring Pakistani actors, after India accused Pakistan of cross-border attacks. Films like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring, among others, Imran Abbas as well as Mahira Khan-starrer Raees faced opposition and protests by various extremist groups.

The army chief said so while giving Pakistan?s perspective on global and regional security at Munich Security Conference in Germany. General Bajwa said that terrorists have sanctuaries in Afghanistan, from where attacks are being coordinated against Pakistan. He said that Pakistan is ready to cooperate for peace and stability in Afghanistan, however, stressed on joint efforts by all the countries to eradicate the menace of terrorism. Expressing concerns over terrorists' presence in Afghanistan, the COAS said that Pakistan has undertaken fencing of its border with Afghanistan and that elimination of terrorism requires global cooperation. "We can proudly say that there are no militant camps in Pakistan," he said, mentioning reports of Daesh (Islamic State) militants' regrouping in Afghanistan. He maintained that the territory of neither of Pakistan and Afghanistan should be used against the other. The COAS said that Pakistan has been implementing National Action Plan (NAP) in the war against terrorism. He said that Pakistan is not just conducting military offensives against terrorists, rather it has also taken action against the financiers. General Bajwa said the menace of terrorism was fought through joint efforts by the entire nation, noting that clerics from all schools of thought issued a decree against terrorism in the name of religion.

"Negotiations were ongoing regarding the rules of engagement, and once we attained clarity on the issue that the troops will be on a training and advisory mission to strengthen the ground defence of Saudi Arabia, the troops were sent," said the defence minister while speaking on Geo News programme 'Naya Pakistan'. He elaborated that Pakistani troops are needed to better train and advise Saudi troops as the country has come under repeated missile attacks from Yemen's Houthi militia. Saudi troop deployment: Senate chairman summons defence minister ISPR announced on Monday deployment of troops to Saudi Arabia; contingent strength to be less than division-size When asked how the Pakistani forces will assist in stopping the missile attacks, Dastgir said, "we will not be giving them air defence". "We only want to train their forces and better advise them. The areas bordering Yemen are mountainous, and as Pakistan's army is highly trained in mountain warfare, we will train and advise them." 'US using task force for political means' Regarding the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) watchlist, the defence minister said it was the first time that the United States was using it to further political aims as the organisation has existed for decades. "This is the first time the US is using the task force for political means to pressurise Pakistan." He said that the country was added to the watchlist in 2012, and when the PML-N government came to power in 2013, "it took measures due to which Pakistan was removed from the list in 2015". When asked why other European countries, which are deemed to be friendly towards Pakistan including the United Kingdom, are supporting the motion, the defence minister said countries bargain with each other on international forums and in this case, the countries thought that the political cost would be less when compared with the benefits of better relations with the US. "We have to act according to law, and where needed laws were drafted and implemented upon." He added that the US has chosen to pressure Pakistan economically before it takes any other measures. Dastgir further elaborated upon diplomatic measures taken by Pakistan to counter the latest American move and expressed hope that the financial action task force can be restrained to its official mandate instead of becoming a tool for political pressure. "It will be unjustified to add Pakistan again on the watchlist as matters have improved further after 2015." Following Thursday's announcement, the ISPR explained that the troops to be deployed, or the ones already there, will not be stationed outside the Kingdom. Pakistan Army to send contingent to KSA for training, advisory mission The troops, or the ones already there, will not be employed outside the kingdom, says ISPR The ISPR said that the military contingent is part of the ongoing Pakistan-Saudi bilateral cooperation, under which a number of Pakistani troops are already stationed in Saudi Arabia for advisory roles. However, the number of troops being deployed at present has not been disclosed. "Pak Army maintains bilateral security cooperation with many other GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] and regional countries," the ISPR had said further, in a perceived assurance to Iran and Turkey owing to the hostile relationship of Iran with Saudi Arabia and Turkey's siding with Qatar in its conflict with Riyadh and other GCC countries.
  4. An important characteristic of a good journalist is that he/she will jump at the opportunity to report anything and everything that is worth their audience's time. Everything that their audience wants and needs to know has to be covered, while being absolutely objective about your reporting. However, a Pakistani journalist has just new standards of journalism in an unapologetic manner and the world can't stop talking about it. Meet Hanan Bukhari, a resident of Pakistan and a reporter for 'City 41'who has taken the world by storm by covering a wedding. His OWN wedding, that is. © YouTube/City 41 Hanan's wedding was covered by the channel from the beginning to the end and yes, that included the baraat which involved a sports car and superbikes. © YouTube/City 41 We are guessing he wanted to stop the traffic with his baraat and make people ogle at his extravagant entourage. But bro, you have managed to stop the press. © YouTube/City 41 After showing the baraat, the video posted by City 41 moves on to show Hanan live from his wedding, as he speaks to the camera about how happy he is on his D-day. He also talks about how his parents and in-laws are elated. © YouTube/City 41 If you think you have seen everything, we hate it to break it to you that you haven't. He goes on to interview his wife and asks her how she is feeling and luckily for him, his wife didn't shy away at all from the camera. © YouTube/City 41 You have to watch this video to believe it: While the couple looks super happy together and we wish them all the best for their married life, we aren't so sure if we needed or even wanted to see someone covering their own wedding. And we also would love to know what was going on in the journalist's and the producers' mind. But till then, let's all stay amused because things like these don't happen every day.
  5. I feel like every desi kid grew up watching our favourite WWE champs fight it out and a lot of us even tried to impersonate them, but some people like to take that love to the next level, and that too in an incredible way. Last year, Kichoo Ahmer, a Lahore businessman and an ardent WWE fan, got married, but to make the day even more special and to make sure all the attention stayed on him the whole time, he probably fulfilled a childhood dream with his epic entry. He entered his own wedding in full Triple H style, complete with a belt and the theme song playing in the backdrop. Here's the video just to refresh your memory – The video even caught Triple H's eye, and he ended up tweeting about it with a very important question. Could only imagine what the honeymoon was like!!! https://t.co/z4ZhSwpsrF — Triple H (@TripleH) March 6, 2017 Now, following in the first groom's footsteps, another guy from Pakistan has taken it upon himself to make the most dramatic entry that would probably outshine the bride as well. Forget all the horses and the other traditional stuff, it seems like people are starting their own traditions and it's nothing short of #WeddingGoals. © YouTube Inspired by the legendary WWE champ 'The Undertaker', this groom entered his wedding a black hat along with a matching long robe, walking with the same slow, impactful manner that 'The Undertaker' does. And the cherry on the top? He even carried a WWE belt for, you know, the complete accuracy. Check out one of the coolest videos EVER that has gone viral: Let's compare the original and this, because the groom honestly nailed it. Here's The Undertaker. And, then we have the groom. The real question is how many times did he watch videos of The Undertaker's iconic entries to get the walk that spot on? If this is the new dramatic and over the top wedding trend, I am so here for it. Now, let's just wait for the man himself to notice and appreciate it.
  6. UN peacekeeping mission in Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) BMP armoured vehicle on patrol. Photo: MONUSCO/Sylvain Liechti1 A Pakistani peacekeeper deployed with the United Nations stabilisation mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was killed in an ambush, the UN said on Saturday. At least one other peacekeeper was wounded following an attack by members of an armed ?group near Lulimba, 96 kilometres south-west of Baraka, in the DRC's South Kivu Province. A statement by the UN spokesman said Secretary General Antonio Guterres condemned the incident and called on armed groups in DRC to lay down arms and seek to resolve their grievances peacefully. Pakistan's permanent representative to the UN, Dr Maleeha Lodhi, identified the martyred Pakistani trooper as Naik Naeem Raza. She also prayed for the recovery of the injured Pakistani soldier in a message on Twitter. ?The Secretary-General extends his heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased and to the people and government of Pakistan,? said the UN statement, adding that Guterres wishes a speedy recovery to the injured and calls on those responsible for the attack to be brought to justice. Pakistan is said to be the third largest contributor to United Nations? peacekeeping missions around the world, after Ethiopia and India. More than 6,000 officers and soldiers are performing their duties as part of UN peacekeeping assignments, the army had said in October last year at the 72nd founding day of the UN. Pakistan armed forces continue contribution to UN peacekeeping efforts: ISPR Over 6,000 Pak Army officers, soldiers part of UN peacekeeping missions As many as 153 Pakistan peacekeepers have sacrificed their lives, including 23 officers, for global peace and stability under UN auspices, according to the army statement. Pakistani troops are currently performing peacekeeping duties in Congo, Darfur, Haiti, Liberia, West Sahara, Central African Republic and Sudan. According to media reports, the Senate was informed in September last year that the largest deployment of Pakistani troops in UN peacekeeping missions is in Congo where 3,486 personnel are deployed as part of the UN Mission to protect civilians against human rights violations and physical violence. At least eight Pakistani soldiers lost their lives in Congo, the Senate was informed. In case of casualties on duty, the UN pays a package of $70,000 in compensation ? directly remitted to the duly recognised beneficiaries of the deceased.

  12. Be it as a kid or as a corporate slave striving to make it through every day, there's one struggle that's common for both – our desire (read need) to get some respite from a mundane routine. While kids still have things comparatively easy for them, adults are sadly left to fend for themselves and come up with creative excuses to take some time off. When nothing works, we simply beg in front of our bosses to grant a day's leave, because anything more than that is a luxury. Well, let's keep that discussion for some other time and focus on kids and their extraordinary ingenuity and creativity. Pexels In our growing years, we either had one mandatory excuse that we used each day, or fake stomach aches to fool our parents and teachers, or leave everything in our parents' hands and expect them to write a leave application on our behalf. But, that was our generation and clearly, neither today's kids nor the teachers are that naïve to fall for these tricks. While, we used to sheepishly slide our leave applications on our teacher's desk and hope for them to approve it; kids today are not taking that risk and are straightaway going to the teacher and singing the whole letter to them…including the punctuations. Well, you know! Just in case, anything gets lost in interpretation. So, this Pakistani student didn't leave any scope for doubts or confusions and went straight to his teacher and sang the whole application and let's just say nothing gets better than this. Please is ko chutti day dain. pic.twitter.com/tlGKvcW4FX — Shehzad Roy (@ShehzadRoy) January 21, 2018 If the headmaster of Model Primary Ghorwala is reading this or has heard that kid's plea, we hope you have already granted a 'chutti' to this child; because honestly, that's the best leave application in this entire world. This child not only sang the whole thing but also took great pains to remember all the punctuations. What more can anyone ask for? The video was shared by a certain Shehzad Roy and as expected, it didn't take much time for the video to go viral. Soon, the whole internet came together to urge the school authorities to grant this kid a sick leave. Ab to chutti Dy doðððððð — Kiñzäð (@Kinza_Afridi10) January 21, 2018 Chuti dy dn r wo bhi full stopppp k sath — malik Tanveer (@tanveerawwan) January 22, 2018 Yrr iski chutti to banti hai... ððð — Shehroz Baluch (@shehrozbaluch) January 22, 2018 Leave granted — Talha Chaudhry (@tnc_89) January 21, 2018 Khuda ka wasta Yar 1 month ki chuti day do is ko..... — Asif naz (@Asifnaz88) January 21, 2018 Full saaatopppp ooo Qommaaaaððð — ÅιDαð« (@Bombaxtic_Ridzz) January 22, 2018 Kindly grant leave to the teacher too.

Dr Ahmed was the chairperson for Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission from 1991 to 2001. During this period, in 1998, Pakistan conducted its first nuclear test. Due to his efforts in the field of nuclear physics, Dr Ahmed had received three of the highest civil awards in Pakistan ? Sitara-e-Imtiaz, Hilal-e-Imtiaz and Nishan-e-Imtiaz. His endeavours also led to the creation of Global Change Impact Studies Centre in Islamabad, where research on climate change is undertaken. He had also served as an adviser to the prime minister for strategic and scientific programmes. The nuclear physicist was born and raised in Gurasdpur, India in 1930, as per reports. But his family migrated to Lahore after Partition. He studied Bachelors of Science in Physics at Punjab University in 1949. After completing his undergraduate studies, Dr Ahmed went on to pursue a masters degree. He also carried out research in Canada on nuclear technologies.
  17. ´Baaghi´, which means ´Rebel´, charts the rise of Baloch from young, exploited girl to internet sensation infamous for her provocative selfies until her shocking murder, with her brother confessing to the high-profile killing ISLAMABAD: In life, she chased fame, hoping to make her mark in Pakistani society. In death, murdered social media starlet Qandeel Baloch may have achieved her goal. Today she is a household name, and her tragic story has been turned into a soap opera -- one of several immensely popular TV shows seeking to challenge the country´s conservative taboos. ´Baaghi´, which means ´Rebel´, charts the rise of Baloch from young, exploited girl to internet sensation infamous for her provocative selfies until her shocking murder, with her brother confessing to the high-profile killing. The show airs on private TV channel Urdu 1 every Thursday. Viewing figures are unavailable, but its pilot episode has been viewed more than 1.6 million times on YouTube. "That girl was a lioness. She should not have died yet," says Shazia Khan, a writer on the series. Baloch´s fate polarised Pakistan. For some, it inflamed outrage over so-called "honour" killings in which hundreds of predominantly women are killed each year, usually by male relatives, for bringing what they perceive as shame on their families. But the concept of "honour" is deeply embedded in parts of Pakistan´s patriarchial culture, and other voices argued that Baloch had made herself a target by her actions -- tame by Western standards but deemed provocative in the conservative country. The decision to turn her death into one of Pakistan´s popular television soap operas has ensured the debate surrounding such murders of women endures. Notorious for its high-profile story, Baaghi is just one of a wave of soap operas and dramas airing plotlines that revolve around such social issues: from domestic violence to child abuse, forced and child marriages, misogyny and women´s rights. They are devoured by Pakistan´s 207 million strong population. Research by Pakistan´s media regulator shows that in 2016, 65 percent of television viewers watched drama channels featuring such soap operas. Another survey by Gallup Pakistan shows 67 percent of adult female viewers and 56 percent of adult male viewers watch entertainment shows, mainly soaps. Their popularity makes them a potentially powerful vehicle for progress, says lawyer Benazir Jatoi, who works for women´s rights watchdog the Aurat Foundation and has long argued that laws protecting women are not enough to effect grassroots change. Blowback "Mujhe Jeene Do" (Let Me Live), another soap on Urdu 1, highlights the issue of child marriages. "If there (is) not widespread awareness, who would know that it is a crime?" Angeline Malik, the show´s director, tells AFP. Pakistan´s biggest entertainment channel, Hum TV, is a pioneer in using social issues as soap opera fodder. In 2016 the channel aired "Uddari", or "Flight", which told the story of a young girl sexually abused by her stepfather and ignited a debate about the sexual abuse of children inside the home. "Uddari took the sensitive subject ... to every household where discussion on *** is still a taboo," says one avid fan, Aabida Rani. In "Sammi", which revolves around its eponymous star character, the station highlighted honour killings, forced marriages, and denial of property inheritance to women all in one show. Sultana Siddiqui, a producer who later set up her own TV station, said they wanted Sammi to be a mirror of society, and an example of "how a taboo issue could be displayed in proper manner." Their efforts are not without backlash, and Siddiqui describes pressure from media regulators as well as a wave of vitriol on social media with people accusing her and her channel of spreading vulgarity and destroying social values. But the shows´ popularity kept them on the air despite the blowback, she says. Flawed portrayals Even as the shows push for awareness and change, the way soap opera heroines are portrayed can cause consternation. Sadaf Haider, a blogger at the country´s major Dawn.com news portal, wrote in October that the storyline for Baaghi followed a predictable Pakistani track relieving the heroine of autonomy -- essentially portraying Baloch as a victim. "The actual Qandeel didn´t consider herself a beychari (helpless) at all, even a cursory reading of her interviews shows she worked hard and was proud of what she had achieved," Haider wrote. "Qandeel took full responsibility for her choices... So why has Baaghi portrayed something else entirely?" Pakistani journalist Fifi Haroon has complained the portrayal of women in such shows still fits in to a patriarchal narrative. "Simpering, dewy-faced heroines ... suffer in obstinate silence or misguided stoicism," she wrote in a BBC piece. "Tears are plentiful. Producers now claim that if you don´t show women crying, the drama won´t garner ratings." Lawyer Jatoi, while praising soap operas as vehicles for change, took a cautious view. "They must ensure they are responsible enough to handle such sensitive topics and address underlying issues so as not to add to the already existing stigmas," she told AFP. Haroon agreed, writing that their makers must be aware of their audience. "It is not just women," she wrote. "Men too are observing what it takes to be a man in Pakistani society and of course, what they can expect from the women in their lives and homes."
  18. WASHINGTON: The United States is examining ways to mitigate any Pakistani retaliation as it piles pressure on Islamabad to crack down on militants, a senior US official said on Friday, cautioning that US action could extend beyond a new freeze in aid. Pakistan is a crucial gateway for US military supplies destined for US and other troops fighting a 16-year-old war in neighboring, landlocked Afghanistan. So far, the Pentagon says Pakistan has not given any indication that it would close its airspace or roads to military supplies and US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis played down concerns on Friday. But Washington has only just begun to work through its new plan to suspend up to roughly $2 billion in US security assistance, announced on Thursday. It came days after U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that Pakistan had rewarded past US aid with ?nothing but lies and deceit.? The senior Trump administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Washington hoped that the aid suspension would be enough to communicate its concern to Islamabad. But the official cautioned that the freeze was also not the only tool that America had to pressure the country -- suggesting it might resort to other measures, if needed. ?We are considering many different things, not just the (financial) assistance issue,? the official said. ?We are also looking at Pakistan?s potential response ... and we are looking at ways to deal with that and to mitigate the risks to the relationship.? The official declined to detail what steps were under consideration, including whether that might include possible unilateral U.S. military action against militants in Pakistan. But as Trump allow the US military to again ramp up its war effort in Afghanistan, including with the deployment of more US troops alongside Afghan forces, the official acknowledged a sense of urgency. The United States has long blamed the militant safehavens in Pakistan for prolonging the war in Afghanistan, giving insurgents, including from the Haqqani network, a place to plot attacks and rebuild its forces. ?We believe we owe it to the Americans in harms? way in Afghanistan. We simply can?t ignore the sanctuaries if we are going to make progress in Afghanistan,? the official said. Mattis plays downs concerns Mattis, speaking to reporters at the Pentagon, said he was not concerned about America?s ability to use Pakistan as a gateway to resupply US forces in Afghanistan. ?I?m not concerned, no,? Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon, adding he had not gotten any indication from Pakistan that it might cut off those routes. Mattis traveled to Pakistan last month. ?We?re still working with Pakistan and we would restore the aid if we see decisive movements against the terrorists -- who are as much a threat against Pakistan as they are to us.? The United States has also said some of the frozen aid could be released on a case-by-case basis, and none of it will be spent elsewhere - leaving the door open to full reconciliation. The Pakistani reaction has so far been limited to harsh rhetoric, with Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif saying the United States was behaving toward Pakistan as ?a friend who always betrays.? But opposition leader Imran Khan said it was time for Pakistan to ?delink? from the United States. The senior Trump administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity acknowledged that a Pakistani cut-off would greatly complicate US resupply efforts in Afghanistan. The official said the administration was developing ?risk mitigation plans,? but acknowledged that examination of a northern network of alternative routes used in the past was ?still at a very broad level.? ?If something were to happen to the ground lines of communication or air lines of communication through Pakistan, certainly that would be very difficult for the US and we would have to look for alternatives,? the official said. ?And it would not be easy.?

  23.

  24. A Pakistani security personnel stands guard during the Christmas Day mass at a church in Quetta, Pakistan, December 25, 2017. AFP/Banaras Khan QUETTA: Pakistan deployed commandos inside and around a church in the southwestern city of Quetta Monday as its grieving but defiant congregation marked Christmas days after they were targeted in a deadly church attack. Snipers were positioned on top of the church, as survivors spoke of their lost loved ones and called for the congregation to be armed, with a quiet, sombre service. One injured survivor burst into tears while approaching the altar to receive Communion, with other members of the congregation weeping as they watched. "It is normally a joyful day, but it is painful... for all of us that attended the service while remembering the day of attack, as well as our near and dear," said one young worshipper, Aftab. The suicide bomb attack last Sunday killed nine people and wounded 30 during a service at the Methodist church in Quetta. Officials have said police intercepted and shot dead one attacker outside the church before he could detonate his bomb. But the second managed to reach the church's main door, where he blew himself up. The church had been more crowded than usual that day as it was close to Christmas. On Monday, the congregation was smaller, down to about 250 instead of its usual 350 or so, despite the heavy deployment of police and paramilitary troops. "Fear was haunting us during the service," said Rukhsana Nazir, a mother who added that six of her relatives were wounded in the attack. However, other survivors ? including Nazir's 13-year-old daughter Sheeza ? said they felt no fear as they had put their faith in God. The service was also attended by some local Muslim leaders and politicians as a show of solidarity. The church itself was first established in 1890, officials there told AFP. Its Reverend Simon Bashir said he has been calling for greater security there for nearly a decade. Some worshippers said they should be allowed to carry weapons to services, fearing future attacks. 40-year-old Kashif Shamshad ? one of the injured ? said they would raise the issue "as we are under threat". Bishop Sadiq Daniel ? the head of the Karachi-Balochistan Diocese who visited Quetta for the service ? agreed, saying the idea has already been proposed to the police, who have asked the community to send them volunteers for weapons training. Christians make up less than two percent of Pakistan's 207 million people. Along with other religious minorities, the community has also been targeted by extremists over the years. In 2013, 82 people were killed when suicide bombers attacked a church in the city of Peshawar. And last year, Lahore suffered one of Pakistan's deadliest attacks ? a suicide bombing in a park that killed more than 70 people, including many children, on Easter.
