  2. Zuckerberg has his first iftar dinner with Somali refugees- Photo: Facebook Mark Zuckerberg observed his first iftar dinner with a group of Somali refugees in Minneapolis, the Facebook founder said in a post on the social media site. ?As a refugee, you often don't get to choose which country you end up in. When I asked one man, who had spent 26 years in a refugee camp, whether America now felt like home, he gave a simple and profound answer: ?Home is where you are free to do what you want. Yes, this feels like home,?? the post read. Zuckerberg has won some praise for emphasising on the need for using technology to battle poverty, supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and acknowledging that the tech industry has a diversity problem. He has also criticised Trump?s efforts to curb immigration and entry of refugees in the United States. ?There are few places in the world he felt comfortable to be who he is: the country he was born, and our country that values freedom,? Zuckerberg said in the Facebook post. ?What a beautiful tribute to America. Thanks to my hosts for being so gracious at the very end of Ramadan. I left impressed by your strength and resilience to build a new life in an unfamiliar place, and you are a powerful reminder of why this country is so great,? he concluded.
  3. LONDON: The British van driver who mowed down Muslim worshippers near a London's Finsbury Park mosque this week was charged Friday with terrorism-related murder and attempted murder, officials said. Darren Osborne, 47, will appear before magistrates in central London later Friday in relation to the charges, police and prosecutors said. One man died in the incident early Monday near Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, and another 11 people were injured. Makram Ali, 51, died from multiple injuries following Monday´s attack. He had collapsed with a leg problem and was being attended to by fellow worshippers leaving late-night Ramadan prayers at the mosque when the hired van careered into them. Ali came to Britain from Bangladesh when he was 10. He was married with four daughters and two sons, and had two grandchildren. His family has said they were "devastated" by his death. "Our father was a quiet, gentle man," they said in a statement. The attack was the fourth in Britain in three months, killing a total of 36 people and injuring around 200. The three previous attacks were all militant-linked.
  4. Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit -Photo: File Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit has said that Pakistan is not begging for talks with India and long-lasting peace cannot be achieved in South Asia without solving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with wishes of its people. Abdul Basit, in an exclusive interview with Rising Kashmir, said that Jammu and Kashmir was the basic and core dispute with India. One day Pakistan and India would have to come on the negotiation table as without dialogue, the two countries could not resolve their problems, he said. When asked how the deadlock in talks can be broken, he said, "The present stalemate between the two countries would be over sooner or later as without dialogue we cannot solve our problems.? The high commissioner added that it is pleasing to note that the two countries have a framework for comprehensive bilateral dialogue. When Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj visited Pakistan in December 2015, both the countries agreed and signed on this framework, he said. Emphasising that Islamabad does not believe in wasting time in talks for the sake of talks, Basit said that Pakistan wanted talks on substantive issues, specifically on Kashmir. "We consider Kashmir issue as the basic and core dispute between Pakistan and Indiaand it should be resolved by taking into account the wishes of Kashmiri people. He said without solving the Kashmir dispute, durable peace between the two countries as well as in South Asia could not be established. Replying to a question, the Pakistani envoy said the two countries had wasted 70 years in wars and bitterness and "the time has now come that we should search for peace. We need to decide whether we would like to continue with status quo or want to make a new beginning in our ties. He said the situation in Kashmir was alarming and ?reinforces the argument that there should be a dialogue and by using force one cannot solve any problem?. When told that India says Islamabad is not addressing the concerns about "cross-border terrorism" for resumption of dialogue process, Basit said, "There should be no condition for dialogue. Our position is very clear that there can be no talk with pre-conditions. Talks should be with open mind and it should be done in a sincere and cordial atmosphere, he said. Basit said that many rounds of talks were held between Pakistan and India during 2004 to 2008 and those talks brought some good results. "It is not fair to put condition for talks. Whenever talks were held, it brought results," he said. When asked whether domestic compulsions are coming in Pakistan's way of improving relations with India, Basit said, "The foreign policy is basically extension of domestic policies and you cannot separate it. However, I must say, there is a national consensus in Pakistan for improving ties with India. I can say that Pakistani nation has come of age or became mature enough as nobody wants to bedevil relations with India.? The high commissioner emphasised that Pakistan does not want to live in perpetual hostility with India but that does not mean ?we are begging for talks?. ?Pakistan is positive and constructive, but it takes two to tango.?
  5. The year 2017 is turning out to be the year of break-ups in Hollywood and it seems there is another break-up on its way. According to the sources, Zayn-Gigi relationship is on the rocks as Gigi Hadid recently opened up to an online gossip website where she spilled the beans about her relationship with Zayn Malik. The British singing sensation and the supermodel are reportedly going through a rough phase in their relationship. The duo has been seeing each other for nearly two years, but their relationship seems to have hit rock bottom. Gigi in her statement to the website said that she wants to end her relationship with the former One Direction member soon because she is unable to stand his dependent behaviour. According to Gigi Hadid, Zayn's struggle with anxiety is taking a toll on their relationship and she feels "suffocated" by him. As per an insider, ?Zayn still gets incredibly worked up over every little thing and it's really wearing Gigi out. He's become dependent on her, and she feels trapped. Everyone around her is convinced she'll end it by the end of summer.? Zayn Malik recently in an interview said that he and Gigi have a totally ?normal? relationship and don?t think of themselves as a ?power couple,? as they?re portrayed. ?I?m with her because I like her,? he explained. ?And I hope she?s with me because she likes me.? The Pillow talk star also shared that his anxiety is now at a ?much more manageable place.?
  6. LEFT: India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Mexico City, Mexico, June 8, 2016. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido; RIGHT: US President Donald Trump in Washington, US, March 19, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts The United States is on track to announce plans to supply India with 22 Guardian drones in a deal worth more than $2 billion, a source familiar with the deal said on Thursday. The approval of the sale of the naval variant of the Predator drone comes ahead of a visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States as he tries to revitalise relations with Washington. The deal would still require approval by Congress. Securing agreement on the purchase of 22 unarmed drones is seen in New Delhi as a key test of defence ties that flourished under former President Barack Obama but have drifted under President Donald Trump, who has courted Asian rival China as he seeks Beijing's help to contain North Korea's nuclear program. Modi's two-day visit to Washington begins on Sunday.
  7. How your mama dressed you at the age of 4 won't help you you climb the ladder today. Come adulthood, we're judged heavily on what we wear, how we pair and whether we're dressed for the occasion or not. Even dressing for our body types becomes our major stress. Well, not complaining—it's all for the good. Whatever your tribe, you don't want to look shorter/appear lanky or in general, wear something that's meant for you. Denim, unfortunately, has the same rules of order. And for men who's comparatively short on the scale, the fabric (if styled, right) can make them appear taller, naturally. Here's all you need to know about lengthening yourself with denim... Shirt- Sacoor Brothers 1. Jeans and ankle, no brushing-brushing. Your jeans should be ending right at the ankle. They shouldn't graze the ankle or reach a point below it. A pair that bundles up on the top of your shoe, will eat into the length of your legs. So basically, crop it right. Or roll it up (but not too high). 2. Slim-fits, not skinny/relaxed. Firstly, second skin fits aren't for you. Jeans need to move closer to your body, not stick to it. As a thumb rule, jeans should be narrowing down while your eyes move down, and not gather around points like the knee or your area around the calves. Relaxed/regular fits will stretch your appearance horizontally, making you appear shorter (not longer). If nothing, lads—just tailor your fit! Shirt- Sacoor Brothers, Jeans- Jack & Jones, Footwear- Adidas 3. Shoes for elevation, and all accessories on top. Not a 6" heel! All you need is a pair to add elevation to your height. Think trainers (as in the image above), heeled oxfords/derby shoes or classic heeled loafers, as per your mood. Also, any accessories you wish to throw into the outfit, should restrict themselves to the top half of your outfit. The idea is to draw attention to your top, to lengthen the body to reach further heights. 4. Shorter shirts to look tall. Thumb rule: your top should only just be covering your buttocks. By keeping your denim/white shirt slightly shorter, you'll expose more of your legs, resulting into a no-break view of your legs (which is key to the illusion of appearing longer). Shirt- Sacoor Brothers 5. Monochromatic colours for the win. Reason? By wearing colours from a close-knit spectrum, your body line won't be breaking at all. Truth be told, that's a crucial hack. To add personality to your classic look, feel free to throw in some quirky socks too. But as seen in the frames above, always stick to a monochromatic aesthetic (blue socks with blue jeans or grays with blacks). ‘30 days of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  10. While some of us show off our boxing skills on roads or in video games, Odisha's Satyapira Pradhan used his skills in the right place and has apparently made it to the Guinness World Records, by throwing the most number of punches with one hand in one minute. Pradhan is a physiotherapy student from Bhawanipatna, Kalahandi district. Reportedly, the record was earlier held by martial arts student Muhammad Rashid from Pakistan, who achieved the spot last year with 377 punches, on October 22. Pradhan is said to have punched 393 times in a minute with one hand. © Facebook Pradhan is currently waiting for confirmation from Guinness World Records. He told The Hindu, “A one-minute video was recorded while I kept punching with my right hand. Three separate attempts were made by me. Video of the last attempt was run in slow motion.” He further said although they counted 398 punches, since they were unsure about five punches, they kept the count to 393. Pradhan applied for the challenge after he got to know about it nearly six months ago. He said, “I got approval from Guinness World Records authorities to make attempts on June 5. After getting approval, I organized the event on Tuesday.” While we are eagerly awaiting the confirmation let's just hope that he makes it since this can be a huge achievement for all of us.
  11. US President Donald Trump delivers remarks on agriculture at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, US, June 21, 2017. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the United States had a "great relationship with China" as he stood beside former Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, the new US ambassador to Beijing. "We have a great relationship with China and I really like President Xi," Trump said in a speech at an Iowa community college. The comment came a day after Trump said Chinese efforts to persuade North Korea to rein in its weapons programs had failed.
  12. File Photo of Prince Philip - Reuters LONDON: Prince Philip, the 96-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has been admitted to hospital as a "precautionary measure" for treatment of an infection, Buckingham Palace said Wednesday. The infection arose from "a pre-existing condition", the palace said. The Duke of Edinburgh, who is to retire from public duties later this year, was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London on Tuesday night. Prince Philip was due to accompany the monarch to the state opening of parliament on Wednesday as well as the Royal Ascot horse races. Their eldest son Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, accompanied Queen Elizabeth to the Houses of Parliament in his place. "Prince Philip is in good spirits and is disappointed to be missing the state opening of parliament and Royal Ascot," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said. "Her Majesty is being kept informed and will attend Royal Ascot as planned." Prince Philip was by Queen Elizabeth's side on Saturday for Trooping the Colour, her official birthday military parade in London. Prince Philip traditionally holds his wife's hand as the state opening of parliament as they process through the Palace of Westminster to the throne, where he sits at her side as she reads out her government´s programme of legislation. The prince has been the queen´s loyal husband for 70 years and announced his forthcoming retirement in May. He is the longest-serving consort in British history and is still in good health for a man of 96. But the royal family's patriarch, who conducted 219 royal engagements last year, has been gradually reducing his workload in his nineties. The former naval officer´s irascible, no-nonsense approach, combined with his infamous and sometimes politically incorrect off-the-cuff remarks, has not made it easy for people to warm to his style. But his forthright manner and unwavering devotion to duty and the queen has endeared him to the nation. And observers say his quips put people at ease -- while also providing a welcome contrast to the queen´s seriousness. Police officers stand outside King Edward VII hospital where Britain's Prince Philip is receiving treatment, London, June 21, 2017 - Reuters ´Trial and error´ Philip met the then Princess Elizabeth just before the outbreak of World War II, and they exchanged letters while he served with the Royal Navy in the Mediterranean and the Pacific. After their marriage in 1947, they spent time in Malta, where he was posted -- only for their lives to be changed overnight by the premature death of her father, King George VI, in 1952. He once admitted the curtailment of his promising naval career was "disappointing", but said that "being married to the queen, it seemed to me that my first duty was to serve her in the best way I could". Although he had a reputation for coldness towards his children, many observers consider Philip the glue that held the royal family together as their offspring went through a series of divorces in the 1990s. In a rare interview to mark his 90th birthday in 2011, the prince said he carved out his role by "trial and error". FILE PHOTO: Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip attend Trooping the Colour in London, Britain, June 17, 2017 - Reuters ´Done my bit´ Philip was born on a kitchen table on the Greek island of Corfu on June 10, 1921, the only son of Prince Andrew of Greece -- the younger brother of Greece´s King Constantine I -- and Princess Alice of Battenberg. Aged just 18 months, his family were evacuated on a British navy ship from politically unstable Greece. They settled in Paris, and at seven Philip was sent away to school in England. He became a Royal Navy cadet following the outbreak of war in 1939. By 1945, he was a first lieutenant and was in Tokyo Bay for the Japanese surrender. When he married he gave up his titles as a prince of Greece and Denmark -- and became a naturalised British subject. In 2011, he said: "I reckon I´ve done my bit so I want to enjoy myself a bit now. "It´s better to get out before you reach the sell-by date."
  13. Ashlyn Coray is our ‘Hottie of The Week' and with that smoking body we're going Oi Vey! Those blonde locks, those smokey eyes....Sigh. Where do women like Ashyln Coray come from? We so want to know! Going wayyyy back with this #tbt 💘 (swipe for more) I was only 20 years old and I could eat whatever I wanted and never had to exercise. I remember people would always ask me for diet tips and my workout regimen and the truth is I had to make stuff up because I still had the metabolism of a teenager. It wasn't until after I turned 21 that everything came to a screeching halt and I actually had to put in serious work and dedication to keep up my appearance. That's when I realized how fortunate I had been and how much I took it for granted. If I could go back in time I would have started healthy eating and exercise habits very early on. I began obsessing over food and felt extremely guilty if I didn't workout every day which negatively affected my mental health. I would pass on social gatherings with my friends if I knew I'd be tempted by the food or the alcohol. I would miss out on normal stuff a 21 year old is supposed to do all because I knew I couldn't afford to not look a certain way for a photoshoot. Knowing that if I didn't look "perfect" that the internet wouldn't hesitate to destroy my self-esteem. I began to feel like no matter what I did It would never be enough. That kind of pressure is part of the reason why I stopped modeling two years later. Stay tuned for more (I swear the video is coming. Please be patient with me🙏🏼) A post shared by The Puppy Mama (@ashlyncoray) on Jun 1, 2017 at 7:03pm PDT 🐚💕 #tbt A post shared by The Puppy Mama (@ashlyncoray) on May 18, 2017 at 7:42pm PDT It's like someone blended gorgeousness with a killer smile and spiced it up with sheer hotness.

  14. Tata Advanced Systems, a division of the Tata Group, may start making F-16 fighter jets with Lockheed Martin, the largest military contractor in the world, soon. That's not it; they will be manufacturing the jets in India. © Twitter This is great news for PM Narendra Modi just days before he heads to the United States to meet with President Donald Trump. There is one caveat though. Their F-16 Block 70 fighter jet needs to win a bid against Saab's Gripen fighter jet for producing 100-200 single-engine fighter jets for the Indian Air Force. © Twitter Even though Saab hasn't yet announced an Indian collaborator for its newer aircraft, the Adani Group and Mahindra Group are frontrunners as of now. © Twitter If they win the contract, Lockheed-Martin will shift its manufacturing base from Texas to India. They believe there is an export potential of $15 billion in this region apart from the IAF contract. Apart from full service for the F-16s, Tata will also be responsible for all upgrades on the aircraft. India, the largest importer of weapons in the world, feels they need this upgrade to their current line-up of MiGs which have already surpassed their expiry date as tensions with Pakistan and China grow. © Twitter But, one thing which most news agencies are ignoring is the fact that the F-16 is an outdated aircraft as well. Even the latest version of the jet, the Block 70, which is being offered to India, is still way behind what the United States is using. The US Air Force has already started the process of replacing the F-16s with the F-35s, a much more advanced fighter, and experts are viewing this move by Lockheed as a means of offloading the jets on India. © Lockheed-Martin While this is still going to be a great move for the Indian economy and Modi's “Make in India” plans, countries like Denmark, Japan, Israel, and South Korea have already ordered F-35s. Yes, it is an upgrade, but who is the biggest winner here? Lockheed or India? © Twitter One company that seems to be making the most of this though is Tata Advanced Systems. The F-16s will be manufactured exclusively in India if this approx. $2 billion deal goes through. While Tata does have some experience in the defence sector, we can't help but feel like this is more a case of getting rid of fighters more than anything else.
  15. Speculations have been made foer quite a long time about Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor's Bollywood debut. Let us inform you what actually is cooking! It is now finalised that Jhanvi will start her career into films under Karan Johar's home banner Dharma Productions. According to Indian media news, Karan Johar is likely to sign a three-film deal with Jhanvi Kapoor. Thus, we will see Jhanvi working with Karan for three films over the years. According to a leading Indian tabloid, when Sridevi was asked about her daughter Jhanvi's Bollywood debut, she said, "Jhanvi wanted to do SOTY 2 and initially, I wasn?t in favour. I don?t think it?s a bad industry. I am a creation of this world. But as a parent, it would give me greater joy to see her married. But her happiness matters more, and if she does well as an actress, I will be a proud mother."
  16. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Photo: File OTTAWA: Canada's government on Tuesday introduced legislation that would expand oversight of its security and intelligence agencies while enabling the country's electronic spy agency to assist the military with cyber operations. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau intended the legislation to make good on a 2015 campaign pledge to modify a law passed by the former Conservative government that boosted powers of police and intelligence agencies. The legislation would create a National Security and Intelligence Review Agency responsible for oversight of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), cyber-spy agency the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) and other departments including the Canadian Border Services Agency. It would replace current oversight bodies at the two spy agencies and review "every other department and agency of the government of Canada that has a security or intelligence function," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told reporters. It would work alongside a separate oversight committee of members of parliament that has been proposed in another bill, Goodale said. Given the Liberal majority in Parliament, the bill is expected to be passed into law, though it is unlikely to be debated until fall at the earliest. One expert said he remained uneasy that the government was expanding its cyber capabilities. The government also proposed to clarify CSE's mandate and said the cyber-spy agency will be allowed to take action online to defend Canadian networks and stop cyber threats. CSE monitors electronic communication and helps protect national computer networks. "For any type of potential cyber threats," the measures would allow CSE "to prevent an attack that comes on us rather than waiting for an attack to actually occur," Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan said at the press conference. Ron Deibert, director of The Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto, said he was concerned to see the Canadian government expand potential operations. "We're at a time when cyberspace is under threat, and it's already very unstable," said Deibert, a well-known expert on digital surveillance and internet censorship. "There are many governments that have built up offensive capabilities and now we're actively contributing to that." The agency will also be allowed to assist the Canadian Armed Forces with cyber operations. The legislation would also create an independent intelligence commissioner that would oversee the authorization of certain types of intelligence gathering and cyber operations.
  17. Despite political tensions between the two countries, the players of Pakistan and India continue to enjoy a cordial relationship with each other as the players themselves from both the teams have mentioned it several times. The latest example of this emerged when Azhar Ali tweeted pictures Indian stars MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh with his sons. Earlier before the Pakistan-India final, pictures of Dhoni with the son of Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed had also emerged on social media.
  18. US President Donald Trump participates in an American Technology Council roundtable, accompanied by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple (L) and Satya Nadella CEO of Microsoft Corporation at the White House in Washington, US, June 19, 2017. Photo: Reuters President Donald Trump met on Monday with the heads of 18 US technology companies including Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Inc (AMZN.O) and Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O), seeking their help to make the government's computing systems more efficient. The White House wants to update government information technology systems, cut costs, eliminate waste and improve service. Trump on Monday cited estimates that the government could save up to $1 trillion over 10 years through such measures. "Our goal is to lead a sweeping transformation of the federal government?s technology that will deliver dramatically better services for citizens," Trump said. "Government needs to catch up with the technology revolution." The executives are part of the so-called American Technology Council that Trump formed in May to support efforts to modernise the US government. ?The US should have the most modern government in the world. Today it doesn?t,? Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos said he wanted the Trump administration to make use of commercially available technologies, worker retraining, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Before meeting with Trump, the CEOs met in 10 small group sessions with Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, along with the presidents of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ohio State University. Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and adviser, said the administration wanted to "unleash the creativity of the private sector to provide citizen services in a way that has never happened before." He said the administration was scrapping unneeded regulations for government computing systems, such as a rule on preventing Y2K issues. Most of the government's 6,100 data centres can be consolidated and moved to a cloud-based storage system. The White House is seeking to shrink government, reduce the federal workforce and eliminate regulations. Trump in March signed an order to overhaul the federal government and tapped Kushner to lead a White House Office of American Innovation to leverage business ideas and potentially privatise some government functions. Many of the tech executives are eager to get White House help in dealing with regulatory and other policy issues such as visas for highly skilled workers. Others attending include Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Chairman John Doerr and the CEOs of Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) International Business Machines Corp (IBM.N), Intel Corp (INTC.O), Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O), Oracle Corp (ORCL.N) and Adobe Systems Inc (ADBE.O). Facebook (FB.O) CEO Mark Zuckerberg was invited but could not attend because of a conflict, the company said. A 2016 US Government Accountability Office report estimated the US government spent more than $80 billion in IT annually, excluding classified operations. In 2015, the US government made at least 7,000 separate IT investments and some agencies were using systems that had components at least 50 years old. "This structure is unsustainable," Kushner said. The CEOs and White House also planned to discuss Trump's review announced in April of the US visa program for bringing high-skilled foreign workers into the country. Cook plans to raise immigration, a person briefed on the matter said Sunday. The council also seeks to boost the security of US government IT systems and wants to learn from private-sector practices. In 2015, hackers exposed the personal information of 22 million people from US government databases. The White House thinks it can learn from credit card companies about significantly reducing fraud. A 2016 government audit found that in Medicaid alone there was $29 billion in fraud in a single year. Following Trump's June 1 decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accords, Tesla (TSLA.O) CEO Elon Musk and Walt Disney (DIS.N) CEO Robert Iger stepped down from White House advisory panels. White House officials said the dispute had little impact and that they had to turn away tech leaders from Monday's event because of lack of space.

  20. KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples? Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday expressed complete satisfaction on the performance of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and his entire team while lambasting PTI over its performance in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Speaking to the media after inaugurating a fly-over in Malir the PPP chairman lauded the progress in Sindh including Karachi under his party?s government. He highlighted that sanitation work was improving and multiple roads were being built. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari added that if progress continued at the same pace, his party would surely secure its share in Karachi in the next elections. Taking a swipe at the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Bilawal said that they are complaining that they have been held accountable during his mother Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto?s tenure and during the rule of Pervez Musharraf. The PPP leader said that every time the PML-N was held accountable during PPP rule they colluded with the establishment to remove the PPP government. He asked what accountability the PML-N leadership faced during the Musharraf years, highlighting that they had signed a document and fled the country. Training his sights on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Bilawal Bhutto said he met with the young doctors who informed him that PTI is destroying the health services setup in the province. Taking a jab at the PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who is quite active and has a massive following on social media, Bilawal said the change Khan had promised is limited only to Twitter.

  24. In a tournament that was featuring the world's top-eight ODI sides, Pakistan were the lowest ranked of all the teams taking part in the ICC Champions Trophy. They had also slipped to the ninth spot in the ICC ODI rankings after a shocking loss to Zimbabwe, just four days after the cut-off date to qualify for the ICC mega event. For all the fans, cricket pundits and even the so-called astrologers, there was no way Pakistan was going to pose a threat to anyone, let alone win the coveted title. And, after their first game against a team they cannot lose to, Pakistan were dead and buried. The only being which airline they would use to book their flight back home. There was no way Sarfraz Ahmed-led side was going to march ahead in the tournament. But, then came the resurrection from the dead, the kind even the Gods would be proud of, to not just reach the final, but to annihilate an opponent they had developed a habit of losing to in the ICC events. A comeback, a bolt from the blue that carried on for four matches and propelled Pakistan all the way to their maiden Champions Trophy title. © Reuters A bolt that was so ridiculously strong that it blew three of the tournament favourites away with relative ease. A bolt so impressive that it even reminded everyone of their glory days, when the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Saeed Anwar ran the show. Congratulations Pakistan on a really comprehensive victory today. Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 18, 2017 Riding on the back of three commendable wins, Pakistan were expected to run out of steam against a much-superior and more-proven Indian side in the summit clash. They were up against a team that had impressed everyone with their formidable batting line-up and the one that looked the most complete side in the tournament. But, high on self-belief and with much-needed momentum on their side, a spirited Pakistani brigade did what no one could have possibly imagined - wreak havoc on Virat Kohli's men. © Reuters Asked to bat first, Pakistan were off to a nervy start with both Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali looking vulnerable against the disciplined line and lengths of India's opening bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. And then, just one mistake from India - a no-ball from Bumrah - and Pakistan literally ran away with the game. Pakistan's batting line-up that was probably their achilles heel in the tournament was not expected to stand a chance against the innovative Indian seamers. And even somehow if they ended up surviving early on, they were surely no match for India's world-class spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, right? Wrong. #Scenes. I'll have a headache tonight. #CT17 #INDvPAK — Melinda Farrell (@melindafarrell) June 18, 2017 The fragility, nervousness and pressure were nowhere to be seen in Pakistan's innings. The only thing that was on display turned out to be some attacking and fearless batting of the highest order, the one that left the Indian bowlers clueless and captain Kohli wondering just how it had all gone wrong so quickly. © Reuters Just one no-ball, one extra chance for opener Fakhar Zaman was all Pakistan needed to put on arguably the best batting show by any team in this year's ICC Champions Trophy. Pakistan had already won the psychological battle with their batting. The target of 339 runs was never going to be easy for any team, let alone India whose middle-order was yet to get tested in the tournament. I was hoping a team in green and gold would win. Seems there was a mix up in countries though 😉 Well done Pakistan, congrats Mickey — Dale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) June 18, 2017 And when the pressure was on India, the more experienced side, the Men in Blue crumbled, making a cookie look like the sturdiest object in the universe. First with the ball, when things started to go wrong, and then with the bat, letting the big target weigh them down so much that the contest seemed all but over in the ninth over of the second innings - courtesy some exceptional seam bowling from Mohammad Amir. © Reuters Hardik Pandya's fireworks did raise a few hopes for India but it was tad too late for the Kohli brigade who had, by then, half of their side hiding their faces in the pavilion. In the end, it was a 180-run victory for Pakistan, an unlikely winner that had pulled off the biggest win in the history of an ICC tournament final. Champions having celebrations in dressing room! 💚💚💚💚 #Champions #INDvPAK — ش ے خ 💦 (@Meri_Jaan_) June 18, 2017 From being looked upon as a side that could crash out of the tournament at any moment, Pakistan played with more passion and intensity than India who had a hard time keeping up with their arch-rivals.
