  4. Prime Minister Imran Khan addresses the media outside a utility store in Islamabad, Pakistan, January 8, 2020. Geo News/via Geo.tvISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday vowed to "further improve utility stores" for the middle class during a visit to one in the federal capital. Addressing the media outside the utility store, the PM said his government had made quality items at affordable rates available for the lower middle class and the salaried people. The leadership's "top priority is to provide these items at cheap rates", he added. "Everything is computerised here. Flour is being sold for Rs800 a kilogramme and we will try to reduce the price further but I can assure you that it won't rise above Rs800. "There's nutrition added to the flour," PM Imran said, referring to the wheat quality. "The rice that I have seen and the edible oil is locally manufactured — including sunflower and canola — so we do not have to import it. "The rupee can fluctuate but it won't affect the common person." The premier noted that pulses worth Rs1.5 billion were being imported but the agricultural department was making full effort to grow them here in Pakistan. "We will further improve these utility stores in the future." The Insaf Ration Card would be introduced very soon, allowing the country's underprivileged people to get food items worth Rs3,000 every month, he said, adding that one of his government's goals was to reduce the role of middlepersons, who "earn too much profit" and engage in "hoarding and profiteering". "The farmer sells for too low a price and the people have to pay a huge price" as the chain from the farmer to the customer was too long, PM Imran added. Noting that 2019 was the year of stabilisation and 2020 would be that of growth and employment opportunities, he said more big projects were coming soon as well as industrialisation and housing plans. "We are injecting a lot of money into [utility] stores," he said.

Not only this level was double the inflation observed in the same quarter last year, it was also the highest level of quarterly inflation since Q4-FY-12.
  6. Arguably one of the most impressive off-spinners of his generation, Harbhajan Singh ruled the bowling charts during his stint with Team India in international cricket. Making full use of his whiplash action, Bhajji managed to alter the length and pace of his deliveries with relative ease, which, in turn, spelt doom for opposition batsmen. Today, his lack of form and rise of young spinners might have kept him at bay from the national team, but Harbhajan continues to strike a chord with fans for his honest opinions on various issues on social media. On 4th January, the right-arm spinner, once again, garnered the support of the netizens on his opinion on the recent attack on Nankana Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan's Punjab province. #NankanaSahib ~ #Pakistani threatens to throw #Sikhs out of Pak & change name to Ghulam-e- Mustafara ~Pelt Stones at Gurdwara Sahib ~Takes 3 hrs for police to act ~ Pak lies again says fight bet 2 Muslim grps ~ And Now they Stop Nagar Kirtan on birth anniversary of 10th Sikh Guru https://t.co/y7iWW0lkh1 pic.twitter.com/aNwuSY9m8A — MEGHDOOT âð®ð³ 2.0 (@meghdootindia) January 4, 2020 Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of the first guru of Sikhs Guru Nanak Dev, has been trending on social media ever since it was attacked by stone pelters on 3rd January as they staged a protest against alleged police atrocities on Mohammed Hassan, the boy who is accused of forcing a Sikh girl to convert before marrying her. A couple of videos have surfaced online where hundreds of angry Mulsim locals can be seen threatening to destroy the Nankana Sahib gurdwara while pledging to build a mosque in its place instead. It's the brother of Hassan, who had allegedly abducted and converted Jagjit Kaur (daughter of the gurdwara's granthi), who could be seen leading the mob in the recorded video. The video further shows Hassan's brother vowing to ensure that there's no Sikh left in the city and will ensure that its name is changed from Nankana Sahib to Ghulaman-e-Mustafa. The upsetting videos have already garnered a lot of attention on social media. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in India has also condemned the vandalism of the holy Sikh shrine in Nankana Sahib. Don't know what's wrong with some people why can't they live in peace.. Mohammad Hassan openly threatens to destroy Nankana Sahib Gurdwara and build the mosque in that place..very sad to see this @ImranKhanPTI pic.twitter.com/vbmzsZNX1x — Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) January 4, 2020 Sharing the videos on Twitter, Harbhajan, too, sought the intervention of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to help save the holy shrine. “Don't know what's wrong with some people why can't they live in peace.. Mohammad Hassan openly threatens to destroy Nankana Sahib Gurdwara and build the mosque in that place..very sad to see this @ImranKhanPTI”, Harbhajan wrote in his first tweet.

  7. Geo.tv/Files Prime Minister Imran Khan slammed the Modi-led government Friday saying that India’s fascist regime is engaging in violence against Kashmiris while the world remains silent. “How long will the world remain silent while the fascist extremist Modi regime indulges in state terrorism?” he said. Tensions reached a new high between India and Pakistan after August 5, 2019 when India scrapped the special status of occupied Kashmir (IoK). It has been almost six months and the curfew imposed on the disputed territory continues. Also read: PM Imran meets COAS to discuss on-going situation in country The valley has been under a strict military-enforced curfew as Indian authorities block communication services and restrict freedom of travel. CAA intensifies conflict between India and Pakistan India passed a new law a couple of days ago that grants citizenship to religious minorities fleeing from Muslim-majority countries — Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh — but excludes Muslim immigrants. The new legislation, known as the Citizenship Amendment Bill, is an amendment to India’s Citizenship Act 1955. It proposes to grant nationality to Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhist, Jains and Parsis, who arrived in India before 2015 but not Muslims. Thousands of people--who see the law as anti-Muslim--have taken to the streets in India against the CAA triggering violent unrest. A southern state imposed curbs on public gatherings to pre-empt further demonstrations. Many university students who were protesting against the bill were arrested by the authorities as well. President Arif Alvi on December 16 expressed outrage at the brutal tactics being adopted by Indian government to crush students protesting against CAA in the capital New Delhi.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also said that Modi's controversial anti-Muslim citizenship law had split India into "two schools of thoughts" and exposed the Indian government's "Hindutva" mindset.
  8. Prime Minister Imran Khan, in an old video that has resurfaced recently, revealed that he was offered to work in Bollywood by renowned Indian actor Dev Anand. However, he rejected to do so. During an interview in a TV show titled India Questions, in 2006, PM Imran was quizzed about having thought of joining Bollywood. To this, he replied with a grin stating, ”You won't believe it, I was asked by one great Indian actor who we all used to look up to. Who in fact, even turned up in England to ask me to act in a film. But you know I was puzzled." The premier then raised questions about who made him the intriguing offer, and why did he turn it down. At first, PM Imran didn’t reveal the name and said, "I won't name him because it'll be embarrassing." However, the 1992 World Cup victor skipper, on insistence confirmed that it was none other than Dev Anand. “But for me, it's strange. Just because I'm playing cricket, how can I become an actor? It makes no sense to me," he said. PM Imran also shared, “In fact, Ismael Merchant once asked me to act in a film. But again, I was always puzzled, how can I act? I couldn't even act in a school play, forget about going into films." The incident has also been mentioned in Dev Anand’s 2007 autobiography Romancing with Life.

  10. PM Imran inquires after patients at the Polyclinic HospitalISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday undertook a surprise visit to the Polyclinic Hospital to witness first-hand how patients were being treated at the hospital. During his tour of the hospital, the prime minister asked patients about how they were being treated at the hospital. "Treatment facilities at the Polyclinic Hospital are satisfactory," said Prime Minister Imran. The prime minister reportedly expressed concern over the lack of space in the hospital for patients. He said it was necessary to expand the hospital so that more people can avail treatment there. The premier went to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences afterwards. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has mentioned in its manifesto that it will bring about a change in the existing health system and bring about reforms in government hospitals.

He said his leadership would keep reminding people about the previous governments and their policies. "People ask me why do I bash the past governments? It’s because we did not get a stable economy and our government is trying it’s best to overcome economic problems," he added. He added that his adviser on finance and revenue, Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, had informed people about the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) efforts to bolster the economy. Related: Hafeez Sheikh says govt's measures supporting Pakistan economy "A crucial problem was that the current account was in deficit, foreign exchange reserves had depleted, there were no dollars, there were debts worth Rs10 billion to be repaid, and a serious risk of the country defaulting," he said. "We had to take some hard steps so that the country wouldn’t default. All those who understand this issue know what would have happened [in case of a default] and we have seen that happening in the Latin American countries and Lebanon. "Thank God that the rupee has become stable [and] the investor confidence returned. We have experienced hard times and entering into in 2020 with good hopes. 2020 will be the year of growth and we will incentivise the industries, help our business community, and focus on the small and medium-sized businesses," he added.

"We will focus on getting investments and try to give jobs to youth and create an atmosphere where economic growth will be possible. "We have to help investors, help businesses, and focus on job creation." 'Jobs through' tourismPM Imran also spoke of tourism as one of the most rapidly-growing industry, noting that it had "improved at a remarkable rate". He stressed again that his government would try to create jobs through this sector and that it would help Pakistan in providing employment to its people. "It will also play a role in bumping up our foreign reserves as foreign exchange is a given if tourism increases. Also read: Pakistan named No 1 travel destination for 2020 Noting that Condé Nast Traveler, a US-based luxury and lifestyle publication, had earlier this month named Pakistan as the number one place for tourists, he said the country would hopefully have an influx of more tourists. "The internal tourism has increased to such an extent that local tourists cannot even find a hotel to stay sometimes. We need to focus and plan on boosting this sector in the upcoming years. "Nine million Pakistanis living abroad now want to come to their homeland for tourism during the vacations. We can also counter Islamophobia through tourism," the premier said.

  12. Prime Minister Imran Khan. Photo: FilePrime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday once again urged the international community to wake up before the 'Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on the move leads to genocide of Muslims in India that would dwarf other genocides'. In a post on Twitter, the prime minister said, “Whenever militias like Hitler's Brown Shirts or RSS are formed, based upon hatred of a certain community, it always ends in genocide.” The prime minister was responding to a tweet shared by Suchitra Vijayan, founder of a New York based research organisation, showing RSS activists marching in military style in India's Telangana state. Vijayan said RSS activists were "Nazi's in Khaki uniform.” “If the international community remains silent — you are complicit in endorsing the ongoing violence,” she said. India has been rocked by demonstrations since December 12, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government enacted the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that provides non-Muslim minorities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who moved here before 2015 a pathway to Indian citizenship.

The demonstrations have been largely peaceful but protesters have also hurled rocks and torched vehicles, while heavy-handed police tactics including the storming of a Delhi university a week ago have fuelled anger. Islamic groups, the Indian opposition, and others at home and abroad fear this forms part of Modi’s aim to marginalise India’s 200 million Muslims and remould the country as a Hindu nation, something he denies.

In earlier meetings with PM Imran, Graham had called for sustained and high-level engagement between the two countries, and appreciated Pakistani support for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan. Last week, US Special Envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalizad had met high-ranking officials in Pakistan after the US resumed peace talks with Taliban earlier this month following a brief pause.

  19. Demonstrators display placards during a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, a bill that seeks to give citizenship to religious minorities persecuted in neighbouring Muslim countries. Photo: Reuters Prime Minister Imran Khan has strongly condemned controversial legislation passed by the Indian Parliament which will grant citizenship to religious minorities from neighbouring countries, but not Muslims.“We strongly condemn Indian Lok Sabha citizenship legislation which violates all norms of international human rights law and bilateral agreements with Pakistan,” PM Imran tweeted Tuesday morning.The premier described the move as “part of the RSS Hindu Rashtra design of expansionism propagated by the fascist Modi government.”. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill provides that Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, and Christians fleeing persecution in Muslim-majority Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan can be granted citizenship of India. There are no similar provisions for Muslim refugees.The bill sailed through the lower house with 311 votes in favour and 80 against shortly after midnight on Monday.The Foreign Office in a statement called the move “a complete violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international covenants on elimination of all forms of discrimination based on religion or belief”."The Lok Sabha legislation is also in complete contravention of various bilateral agreements between Pakistan and India, particularly the one concerning security and rights of minorities in the respective countries,” the statement read.Read also: India passes religiously discriminatory citizenship bill amid global outcryIt added, "The latest legislation is another major step towards the realisation of the concept of ‘Hindu Rashtra’, idealised and relentlessly pursued by the right-wing Hindu leaders for several decades. It is driven by a toxic mix of an extremist ‘Hindutva’ ideology and hegemonic ambitions in the region.”"We condemn the legislation as regressive and discriminatory, which is in violation of all relevant international conventions and norms, and a glaring attempt by India to interfere in the neighboring countries with malafide intent," the statement added.US proposes sanctioning top Indian officialsThe United States on Tuesday also expressed concerns over the passage of the discriminatory bill."The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) said it will propose sanctions against senior members of the Indian political leadership if the bill is enacted as law.The USCIRF in its statement noted that the bill specifically excluded Muslims, setting a legal criterion for citizenship based on religion."The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is a dangerous turn in the wrong direction; it runs counter to India’s rich history of secular pluralism," the statement said.The commission also condemned the bill as a ‘violation’ of the Indian constitution, relating it to recent efforts to introduce the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam and nationwide. The NRC, like the citizenship bill, is widely believed to be the brain-child of the Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah."USCIRF fears that the Indian government is creating a religious test for Indian citizenship that will strip citizenship from millions of Muslims," the USCIRF warned.Read also: US considering sanctions on top Indian officials, including Home Minister Amit ShahIn a statement made separately early Tuesday, the US House Foreign Affairs Committee also condemned the passage of the contentious bill through the Indian lower house, saying that the so-called ‘religious test’ for citizenship undermined basic democratic tenets shared by the US and India.The ruling BJP in India had included the passage of the CAB as part of its manifesto released ahead of elections in May 2019.Protests erupt as India pushes for citizenship billThe citizenship bill also sparked protests in India’s northeastern states, where residents are unhappy about an influx of Hindus from neighbouring Bangladesh.In Guwahati in Assam state, protesters set fire to tyres, while tribal groups staged protests in Tripura. Student groups called for dawn-to-dusk shutdown in four districts of the state, while shops, businesses, educational and financial institutions remained shut and public transport stayed off the roads.“We will fight and oppose the bill till the last drop of our blood,” All Assam Students’ Union adviser Samujjal Bhattacharya told Reuters, underlining the region’s resistance against migrants amid fears that tens of thousands of settlers from neighbouring Bangladesh would gain citizenship.In Modi’s home state of Gujarat and the city of Kolkata, hundreds of people staged protests and marched against the proposed law.

Since the annexation, New Delhi has also enforced a near complete communications blackout by blocking internet and telecommunication services in the disputed territory.‘Govt committed to protecting the rights of all citizens’In a separate tweet, PM Imran assured that his government remains committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens without discrimination. “On International Human Rights Day, Muslims need to remember that the message of equality, justice and protection of human rights for all was given more than 1400 years ago by our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him),” the premier said.The prime minister added that the message of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)"embodied the cardinal principles of respect for human rights and human dignity".The premier said his government was committed to the protection of human rights for all citizens as preached by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), especially in his last sermon.World Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10, the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
