Does the Quran &/or Islamic culture violate Western Judo-Christian and Secular Humanistic values?

2020.08.10 17:51 1C1538 Does the Quran &/or Islamic culture violate Western Judo-Christian and Secular Humanistic values?

I saw this question online and wanted to add my thoughts to it.
According to the Quran Muslim men have the legal right (Islamic law) to beat their wives in certain conditions after other methods have failed. This verse is found at Quran 4:34.
Quran 4:34, Mohsin Khan: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see illconduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.
The bold are mine for ease of context.
Muhammad the founder of Islam once beat his wife (Aisha). He hit her chest and that caused her pain.
Sahih Muslim Book 4 Hadith 2127: Muhammad b. Qais said (to the people): Should I not narrate to you (a hadith of the Holy Prophet) on my authority and on the authority of my mother? We thought that he meant the mother who had given him birth. He (Muhammad b. Qais) then reported that it was 'A'isha who had narrated this: Should I not narrate to you about myself and about the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him)? We said: Yes. She said: When it was my turn for Allah's Messenger (Peace be upon him) to spend the night with me, he turned his side, put on his mantle and took off his shoes and placed them near his feet, and spread the corner of his shawl on his bed and then lay down till he thought that I had gone to sleep. He took hold of his mantle slowly and put on the shoes slowly, and opened the door and went out and then closed it lightly. I covered my head, put on my veil and tightened my waist wrapper, and then went out following his steps till he reached Baqi'. He stood there and he stood for a long time. He then lifted his hands three times, and then returned and I also returned. He hastened his steps and I also hastened my steps. He ran and I too ran. He came (to the house) and I also came (to the house). I, however, preceded him and I entered (the house), and as I lay down in the bed, he (the Holy Prophet) entered the (house), and said: Why is it, O 'A'isha, that you are out of breath? I said: There is nothing. He said: Tell me or the Subtle and the Aware would inform me. I said: Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be ransom for you, and then I told him (the whole story). He said: Was it the darkness (of your shadow) that I saw in front of me? I said: Yes. He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you? She said: Whatsoever the people conceal, Allah will know it. He said: Gabriel came to me when you saw me. He called me and he concealed it from you. I responded to his call, but I too concealed it from you (for he did not come to you), as you were not fully dressed. I thought that you had gone to sleep, and I did not like to awaken you, fearing that you may be frightened. He (Gabriel) said: Your Lord has commanded you to go to the inhabitants of Baqi' (to those lying in the graves) and beg pardon for them. I said: Messenger of Allah, how should I pray for them (How should I beg forgiveness for them)? He said: Say, Peace be upon the inhabitants of this city (graveyard) from among the Believers and the Muslims, and may Allah have mercy on those who have gone ahead of us, and those who come later on, and we shall, God willing, join you.
The bold are mine for ease of context.
The Quran allows violence between men and their wives. Muhammad hit his wife (violence). In the Muslim community men can beat their wives. Here is a statistics on Domestic Violence in the Muslim World.
Nearly 90 percent of Afghan women suffer from domestic abuse, according to the United Nations Development Fund for Women. Despite that, there are less than a dozen shelters like this one in Afghanistan, usually run by non-governmental organizations. Abusers are rarely prosecuted or convicted, and most women are afraid to say anything. "Their mothers are beaten by their fathers. They're beaten by their fathers, by their brothers. It's a way of life," said Manizha Naderi, director of WAW.
Statistics in Iran show that 66% of Iranian women, at the beginning of the marriage have been at least physically abused once. Some forms of physical abuse that occur include: biting, bondage, imprisonment in their own home, scratching, hair pulling, and even starving.
A recent report by the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) registered 139 cases of violence against women in the northern region of Kurdistan in the second half of 2008 alone. It said 163 women were killed as a result of domestic violence in Kurdistan in 2009. Experts suggest the number is less than 5 percent of the real estimates.
91% of university students polled by the Jordanian Human Right Center approve of wife beating. An earlier study by another organization found out that a majority of WOMEN also supports the right of a husband to beat the wife
Launched in January 1999, the [Women's Empowerment] project first established a research team, trained by Dr Abdo, which in turn began training community leaders on gender-based research methods. They have used these skills to interview a representative sample of 120 women from refugee camps, villages, and cities in the Gaza Strip to determine the incidence of gender-based violence. The preliminary results are alarming: half of the women interviewed to date have been victims of violence. "Violence against women in Gaza basically means domestic violence," says research consultant Aitemad Muhanna. "Women are beaten by their husbands, beaten by their fathers, and even beaten by their brothers." Women are beaten for not fulfilling traditional roles — such as cooking, cleaning, or tending to their appearance — to a husband's satisfaction. Other abuses include harsh insults, sexual abuse among family, and marital rape.
A study published in June 2006 in the Journal of the Pakistan Medical Association, based on interviews with 300 women admitted to hospital for childbirth, said 80 percent reported being subjected to some kind of abuse within marriage. At times, the violence inflicted on women takes on truly horrendous forms. The Islamabad-based Progressive Women's Association (PWA), headed by Shahnaz Bukhari, believes up to 4,000 women are burnt each year, almost always by husbands or in-laws, often as “punishment” for minor “offences” or for failure to bring in a sufficient dowry. The PWA said it had collected details of nearly 8,000 such victims from March 1994 to March 2007, from three hospitals in the Rawalpindi-Islamabad area alone.
Wife Beating in Islam
The Quran, the founder of Islam Muhammad and the Muslim community allow and practice wife beating.
Family violence is illegal in the Western world. If a man beats his wife in any form or context, that man will be guilty of a crime. Such inhumanity is fully in violation of Western Judo-Christian and Secular Humanistic values.

2020.07.17 00:30 Erhard_Eckmann [Event] Counter-Terrorism Law

Counter-Terrorism Law

August, 2021

Introduction

Beginning with Anti-Corruption reforms, Pakistan's military has slowly been removed from the pedestal of power in Pakistan and being replaced with the brand new Ministry of Public Security. While the military loses power over interior management and has been refocused and professionalization into a modern armed forces, the Ministry of Public Security has quickly risen as the most powerful institution in Pakistan's government by its jurisdiction over essentially the people of Pakistan, matters of intelligence, internal security and much more.
Pakistan has struggled in the past with a history of terrorism and insurgent separatist and ethnic movements. While the military steps down to focus on their development, large questions have remained about who will or should take their place, what sort of power will they have, and how could they effectively maintain the stability of Pakistan. The Counter-Terrorism law was largely passed as a reason to formalize the rise of the Ministry of Public Security and assign them specific responsibilities and rights over governance of the population and security of the national identity. The major leftist parties in government pushed it through as a reason to maintain Pakistan's image, but critics have voiced their concern about the law casting an authoritarian cloud over the country, and giving excessive power over managing the public opinion.

Citizen Registration and Foreigner Registration

Currently Pakistan uses a Computerized National Identity Card System called the Smart National Identity Card. The Smart National Identity Card essentially has a digital chip embedded in it that holds onto specific identifying information including pension disbursement, participation in social and financial programs, voting identification, and of course personal information like name, height, weight, address, but notably religion and ethnicity. Currently the Smart National Identity Card is issued at 18 years of age and is required to do a variety of things necessary for life: voting, opening and using a bank account, obtaining a passport, purchasing land or vehicles, purchasing a plane or train ticket, obtaining a mobile phone and SIM card, obtaining utilities, college admission, getting a loan, setting up a business, and formal employment. While before not much attention was paid to ethnicity, religion, and address; that will be changed. Now, to purchase or rent property, the individual must register their status on the property with the local National Police Bureau. The National Police Bureau will be keeping a national database of the residences of individuals. When a new family member is added to the family, the National Police Bureau must be contacted to add them to the property registration and change their information in the Smart National Identity Card database. But most importantly, when citizens are looking to move they have to inform the National Police Bureau they are looking to purchase/rent a specific property, and the National Police Bureau will have to decide whether whether to approve or deny the move. They will note the request on the citizen's accounts and keep the former addresses listed, and print a form of their decision to provide to the property negotiator or developer of approval/rejection. So that if a citizen ever needs to be located if they are missing, or a body has been found, or if they are under suspicion for a crime, the National Police Bureau, or other agencies in the Ministry of Public Security will be able to locate them.
Visa-free nations will be completely exempt from the following Foreigner Registration regime. Nations on Electronic Travel Authorization or visa regimes will have to inform their citizens travelling to Pakistan that they will be required to register their presence within 24 hours of arrival at the National Police Bureau, or approved hotels with NPB staff. The registration will be linked to their passport number to verify the location of the stay. ETA and visa applications should already cover where the foreigner plans to go and what they plan to do. If a tourist plans to leave the municipality or changes location of residence during stay, the NPB will have to be informed in the destination local area within 24 hours. As foreigners do not have a Smart National Identity Card, their passport number will be shared to the system from the National Customs and Border Protection Agency, along with mandatory fingerprints for all visitors at the border, and the image taken of the person by the NCBPA. The NCBPA will log national entry information, while the NPB will log residence information during stay.

PakiNet

The Counter-Terrorism Law called for budget allocation to a secret program called PakiNet to set up a vast network of CCTV cameras across the entire country to engage in the monitoring of citizens, described by the budget proposal to be for "ensuring lawful behavior." The project proposal was added to the law by the National Police Bureau and the Intelligence Bureau so that it will be run and maintained by the NPB, but access permissions will be extended to the NPB. The National Police Bureau will connect this to the already underway national highway camera system, which will become part of PakiNet. PakiNet will utilize the same AI properties that the highway camera system had to be able to identify license-plates and enforce traffic laws. However the features will be extended to include facial recognition features of China's SkyNet which will allow the system to eventually process the public appearance of every Pakistani within moments as they move within camera's view. On the highways, the same will be done for drivers of vehicles for easier identification using pictures on their Smart Cards or for foreigners upon legal entry into the country. Notifications on the system will pop up warning of unrecognized individuals which will screenshot and alert NPB authorities to determine who the individual is and how they got into Pakistan. The roll out process for this will be gradual due to the length of time it will take starting in large population centers in the following order:
2021
  • Karachi
2022
  • Islamabad
  • Rawalpindi
2023
  • Lahore
  • Peshawar
  • Quetta
2024
  • Faisalabad
  • Hyderabad
  • Multan
  • Gwadar
  • Gujranwala
2025
  • Bahawalpur
  • Sargodha
  • Sukkur
  • Larkana
  • Dera Ghazi Khan
  • Mardan
  • Nawabshah
Year Percent of Population Coverage
2021 7%
2022 20%
2023 53%
2024 71%
2025 100%
Pakistan's Ministry of Public Security will work alongside China's Ministry of State Security to acquire pieces of their software to include its features in Pakistan's program, with a prospective end date in 2025 with full serviceability. This project is proposed to cost $3 Bn to implement across Pakistan.

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority

PEMRA is Pakistan's authority on media regulation for print and electronic media, issuing licenses to operate for distributors. The Counter-Terrorism Law has given PEMRA the new responsibility of reviewing all released media before being published. It will be the responsibility of PEMRA to determine whether cinema, news broadcasts, etc are suitable for public viewing in Pakistan. Justified by terrorist use of LiveLeak and YouTube to film their escapades, Pakistan's government has taken a new step to establish its control over media in Pakistan. PEMRA will be directed to edit publications that are critical of Pakistan's government and public institutions, as well as general problems in Pakistani society. This was done to promote stability within Pakistan and create a more general unified message from all media outlooks in Pakistan that the nation is rapidly advancing towards the first world. By preventing publications of political dissent, terrorism, and major fiascos that are not approved by the government, they will never reach the public media and then will not be given attention internationally unless directed by the government. Now PEMRA will be giving out licenses for journalists to operate, and will require that one be held for the publication of material, including foreign journalist access to Pakistan will be limited by these new regulations. Effectively, this gives Pakistan's government control over what is allowed to be in the media and the public sphere without necessarily having to create public news agencies to be the government's mouthpiece, although is still likely to occur anyways. Future references of Baluchistan ethnic issues or former separatism will now no longer be approved, or will be extremely edited at the least, and the same will be carried over across the rest of the country to create the unified and stable image. Additionally, this will also be used to enforce Sunni Islamic ideals in the country by selecting information in line with local Sunni interpretation of the Quran, which will make it easy for authorities to deem on religious grounds that media cannot be shared.

2020.07.15 09:26 ImDreamGirl Plan A Trip To Islamabad By Booking Cheap Airlines

For most trips, taking tickets with cheap airlines is always recommended. While prices for transatlantic flights have fallen in recent years, they can still significantly reduce travel budgets. Whether you are a budget traveler or a family who wants to spend your vacation abroad, finding a cheap flight offer can be what bothers you. After all, if your flight is too expensive, you will most likely postpone it. I saw it again and again. And yet, every day, airlines have thousands of amazing offers from erroneously published tariffs, through special promotions, to lowering prices to compete with another airline. Cheap tickets are now available and can make your dream trip a reality if you know where to look.

Go for local airlines

Most search engines do not show local airlines. This is mainly the case for distant places or less popular routes. If you're flying to such a destination, we suggest looking for local airlines on Google. Then visit the local airline website and check offers or offers. This will definitely help you book flights at a lower price. If you are from Pakistan, especially from Karachi, then you can easily find Karachi to Islamabad PIA ticket price really cheap.

Keep Your Searches Secret

You didn't go crazy at the thought that the price of the flight changed after searching the browser several times. Always use private or incognito browsing mode to search for the lowest priced tickets. Cookies are reset each time you open the incognito window again. So, if you want to start with a clean list for each flight search, close all incognito windows, open a new one, and then perform a flight search.

The flexibility of Travel Dates

You may have come across websites claiming that booking tickets on a particular day or traveling on weekdays would save you a lot of money. But this is not always true, so we suggest checking the prices for the whole month. This way, you'll get a clear picture of the days that are cheaper at your destination.
Try it on a website or in a mobile application. You just have to feed your departure and arrival cities. Check the one-way tariff first. Click leave, do not enter the date, instead select the whole month. Then click search for flights, and you will know the date that offers the lowest price.Now follow the above steps for the return flight to get the cheapest fare. If you make a reservation in the mobile application, you can display the price table and make the appropriate reservation.

Act fast

If you found cheap airline tickets, it's not sure if it is going to stay for long. Unless it is an advertised sale, which is usually not so great to start with, there is no public end date for any tariff. The general rule is that the better the tariff, the shorter it will last. In general, you should not expect most of the significant tariffs to last longer than a few days. Now that you know the basics, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about finding and booking cheap flights.

Search Individual Travelers Prices

If you're traveling with friends or family, don't search or buy multiple tickets in one purchase. The airlines always show the highest ticket price in the ticket group, which means you will eventually pay more money. For this reason, always look for tickets as one person. Then at the checkout, you can choose places to sit with your family. And even if you don't end up side by side, it's a fair trade for saving a few hundred dollars.

Look for Special Deals

Before you start looking for specific flights, make sure you subscribe to some newsletters. Joining the airline mailing list and last-minute offers pages will give you access to the absolute best offers. Sure, 99 percent may not match your itinerary, but keeping an eye on offers will ensure you don't miss a fantastic offer.
Most cheap flights are only available for a limited time. If you don't always search the Internet for sales, you'll probably miss the best deals. Besides, flight newsletters often offer frequent bonuses for aviators. If you're a travel hacker, these points and miles can add up free flights and amazing improvements. You can find Karachi to Islamabad PIA ticket price specifically on exclusive deals at meager prices.

Getting around Islamabad

When you arrive in the city, navigation is relatively easy because it is organized in a grid. There are many taxi companies to choose from, and those in the city have a good. However, it pays to set a tariff before setting off. Islamabad is also an excellent place to rent a car because the grid system makes driving safer than in other Pakistani cities. Remember that the city is arranged in a grid, with areas marked.

Conclusion:

The best time to visit Islamabad or Rawalpindi is from November to May when the heat subsides. Otherwise, walking in the Margalla hills can be tedious and busy, because many tourists will want to indulge in the scenery. Summer months can be sweltering, although cheap airlines and accommodation can be provided during this period.

2020.07.13 15:20 TheNorthBlood The Gilgit Manuscripts : A Treasure Forgotten

The Gilgit Manuscripts : A Treasure Forgotten
The Gilgit Manuscripts : A Treasure Forgotten
A couple of cattle grazers in 1931, in a village Naurpur near Gilgit once came upon a wooden box in a circular chamber in side a Buddhist stupa which contained a large number old Manuscripts pertaining to Buddhism. Little did they know that they had stumbled upon one of the most important finds of the century. The Gilgit Manuscripts are the oldest surviving religious Manuscripts from the sub-continent and of the oldest ones in Buddhism.The cattle grazers took the collection to the Wazir of Gilgit who in turn turned it over to the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir and the news of the discovery of this Great Treasure spread world wide. Opinions vary about the date of this manuscript. One branch of scholars says it was written in the second century AD., while another puts the date at somewhere between the sixth and seventh centuries.
Gilgit was at that time at the cross roads where South Asia, Central Asia and Eastern Asia met and it was an important stop on the Silk Road. Many monks from India carried the message of the Buddha from here to Tibet, China, Korea and even as far as Japan. It was along the Silk Road that Buddhism spread eastwards towards the rest of Asia. Gilgit hence played an important part in the spread of Buddhism and hence this find.The almost seventeen centuries old Gilgit Manuscript has been giving historians a hard time, as no one has yet been able to fully decipher it. The lamination of the manuscript by the National Archives of India sometime ago has once again put the limelight back on this all-important literature concerning India, Tibet, China, Japan and other neighbouring countries.
In fact in 1897 - 34 years before it was discovered - the Buddhist Text Society of Calcutta had published references to the Gilgit Manuscript saying that if it were ever to be found it would unravel the ancient history of several communities as it is considered to be the oldest Buddhist manuscript.A corpus of many Buddhist texts such as the Four Sutras from the Buddhist canon, including the famous Lotus Sutra, the Manuscripts survived because they were written on the bark of the Bhoj (Birch) Tree which does not decay and obviously helped by the sub zero temperatures in Gilgit. They were written in the Buddhist form of Sanskrit in the Sarada or the Sharda Script. The Gilgit Manuscripts deciphered thus far cover a wide range of subjects such as religion, religious rituals, philosophy, iconometry, monastic discipline, folk tales, medicine and culinary art.
The most famous of the Gilgit manuscripts, the Gilgit Lotus Sutra is preserved in the National Archives of India in Delhi. Known as the Saddharma Pundarika Sutra – or the teachings of the white lotus and sun – the sutra is the basis of the Tiantai and Nichiren schools of Buddhism. In 2012 a facsimile edition of it was published by by the National Archives jointly with the Institute of Oriental Philosophy and Soka Gakkai, a Japan-based non-governmental organization.
In August 1938, seven years after the discovery of the texts, the archaeologist Madhusudan Kaul Shastri led a systematic excavation of the Naupur site and discovered another larger chamber at the base of the structure. The chamber contained another set of the Gilgit Manuscripts along with votive objects and probably Buddhist cult bronzes."According to renowned scholar Karl Jettmar, inscriptions on these bronzes “reveal that they were produced and dedicated due to the generosity and the religious zeal of a Patola Shahi”. The Patola Shahis, also known as Palola Shahis, were the rulers of Gilgit and Baltistan from the late sixth to the early eighth centuries AD."Shortly after, Kaul Shastri and his team outlined the specifications of the second group of manuscripts and other finds from the site including the hand painted covers of two manuscripts."
In the third phase, the well-known Italian scholar Giuseppe Tucci secured another small group of the manuscripts in 1956. Obtaining them from a street vendor in Rawalpindi, he presented them to the Karachi museum."Roughly 60 manuscripts and 17 Avadnas emerging from Naupur are of unmatched significance in Buddhist studies. These are the oldest surviving collection of religious texts in the subcontinent. Based on the paleographical evidence, scholars agree that local Buddhist devotees compiled these texts between the fifth and sixth century AD. With the exception of only a few scripts, all the manuscripts were written on birch bark in Buddhist hybrid Sanskrit language in the Gupta Brahmi and post-Gupta Brahmi script. The manuscripts contain sutras from the Buddhist canon, the Samghata Sutra, Samadhiraja Sutra, Saddharma Pundarika Sutra, and Bhaisajyaguru Sutra.The Samadhiraja Sutra is one of the important Mahayana canonical texts, which are collectively called Navadharma.
The Saddharma Pundarika Sutra, popularly known as Lotus Sutra, figures prominently in the Gilgit Manuscripts and scholars agree it was the most venerated sutra of the Buddhists from the Gilgit area"Though the grammatical and literature aspects of the text are gradually becoming more of historical interest in the contemporary world, what is of interest is the social relevance of some of the sutras mentioned in the manuscript. Experts feel that when the full text is deciphered a common thread will be found in the language and people of countries like India China, Japan, Thailand, Tibet and Korea which would have the potential of altering the very geo-political map of the region.
At present the main collection is with the National Archives in New Delhi and some parts with the British Museum in London and at the Karachi Museum. Apparently Nehru had the many body of the Manuscripts bought by a special Plane from Srinagar in 1948 after the Tribal Invasion. However a small part of the manu scripts still lie at the Shri Partap Museum in Srinagar though not on display.
As luck would have it I managed to have a look and some parts of this Great Treasure at the Sri Partap Singh Museum yesterday and was even allowed to take photos. To come face to face with such a great treasure is truly a humbling experience and I could not help but tremble with excitement as the significance of what I was going to see. This is the Holy Grail of Buddhist Learning.
NOTE : Compiled from information on the Gilgit Manuscripts from various references on the Net.
PS : The Museum plans to put this on Display as it is shifting to a new Building and some Galleries are already open for Public viewing. The Museum has a great collection and is a must see when you visit Srinagar.
Update : Its now on Display at the Museum.

2020.07.12 18:09 PerpetualDilemma I need some serious advice about choosing a college and board urgently. Please just give whatever advice you can. I'll read it all and make my decision.

Here's some background: I've completed my matric this year from Federal board and am supposed to take my 1st year exams next year in April. I live in Gilgit.
I just got accepted into Lawrence College and tomorrow is the last date for the submission of fees. I've been thinking about it ever since I got the message but I'm no closer to making a decision.
If I stay here, I will study from private tuitions according to the speed I'm comfortable at, and will take the Federal Board exams next year. I will take admission in APS but they aren't teaching online afaik and there's no pressure, I can do my own thing here.
If I "go to" Lawrence, I'll study through online classes and take the Rawalpindi board exams next year.
My main questions are:
ANY help is appreciated as I'm kinda losing my mind here lmao. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

2020.03.18 00:29 artistique1 [EVENT] New Beginnings

Dawn

Marxists surrender unconditionally as Republic forces capture Islamabad

ADINA HASHIM 20th January 2052
KARACHI (Dawn) -- The Republic has triumphed over the incumbent Marxist faction in Islamabad, taking the city earlier today after a long, drawn out battle between the two forces. No official numbers have been released yet but our reporters, who have tried to get as close as possible to the action, estimate that casualties may exceed be well in the thousands including civilians. Property and infrastructure damage has also been severe, including the felling of Islamabad-Rawalpindi's Centaurus Mall, a popular spot among the locals of the area, in a massive artillery barrage by Republican forces - thankfully, no civilians were present in the towers at the time as it had been occupied by a Marxist military garrison that had "rigged the entire plaza to explode" according to sources on the ground and severe damage to the interior structure of the Pak Secretariat whose halls and conference rooms were the venue of a shootout between Marxist and Republic forces. Various small businesses and corporate offices in the Blue Zone have also suffered serious damage.
About seven minutes after the last garrison in Islamabad surrendered to the Republic, the Secretary-General of the Mazdoor Kisaan Party and President of Pakistan, Mr. Hamid Yousuf, was captured by SSG forces while attempting to flee the city along with a dozen other high-ranking members of the Marxist government - most other pro-Marxist politicians, party members, and prisoners of war were sent south to Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi to be incarcerated until trial while the high command was kept in Islamabad for reasons that would soon be revealed.
An hour and fifteen minutes after the fall of the city, the high command of the Republic of Pakistan's military government arrived in the capital by military transport jets and helicopters and took residence in the Aiwan-e-Sadr for the day. The command included various illustrious names such as General Taban Ali Khan, Chief of Staff, and Major General Adam Askari, long considered to be the man who would take up the mantle of 'President of Pakistan' once the civil war came to an end.
At exactly 19:47 pm, the Republic began a live broadcast of the peace signing between the military and the defeated Marxist government, led by a shell-shocked Hamid Yousuf, and the 'negotiations' were short. The following is a summary of the peace agreement signed between the People's Islamic Republic and the Republic of Pakistan, condensed into salient points.
  • The Republic of Pakistan will be recognized as the sole, legitimate state representative of all people of Pakistan, in charge of its defense, foreign policy, and representation in the United Nations. The "People's Islamic Republic of Pakistan" shall hereby cede all rights to the names, all imagery and coat of arms, national standards, and political titles and ranks of Pakistan to the Republic, and will cease to exist.
  • The Republic will immediately take over all international, military, and diplomatic functions previously held by the "People's Islamic Republic of Pakistan" including foreign military bases, embassies, and consulates.

As well as the middle-class will continue to expand for Pakistan, roughly one-quarter for the number is normally considered awful adjusted Oct 2006.

Call Girls in Islamabad
The lower state about little children and additionally wives is mostly a outward exhibition about poor literacy tiers, big moves approximately the legislation and additionally enforcement, and additionally modest engagement for city population.

This approach makes u . s . to taboo question about prostitution. Everyone tell you which usually captivity comes with faded right from Euro world, still marriage ceremony valid. Captivity yet happens to be, still at this time the software asserts and then wives and your list is normally prostitution (Victor Hugo). Who’s a fabulous prostitute? In accordance with the thesaurus which implies, person that solicits and additionally will accept charge just for sexual activity antics. A fabulous prostitute (tawaif, described as hooker, whore, hoe, lane master, sexual activity workforce or possibly escort) is mostly a people, sometimes ladies, who has got sexual activity by means of most people for cash.

A lot of lands experience prepared prostitution spurious. Still yet, a lot of lands want Holland experience prepared the equivalent conduct yourself allowed by the law and share with permit to make sure you most people doing business using this approach practise.

Prostitution is occasionally generally known as all the "world's most well-known profession". You can find posts from it for a wide range of civilization and additionally population. On the conditions for the Language Raj, this approach conduct yourself was first thought of as first rate. All the 'tawaif' about afterward was first full etiquettes and additionally points. All the place emphasis was first really relating to the music and singing and additionally walking normally. It was eventually normal faithful night-life. High nobles' right from in secure may dispatch most of the daughter's to make sure you all of these tawaifs, to make sure they could quite possibly uncover ways and additionally poise. After a period, all the faithful night-life found side-tracked along with cutting edge development about prostitutes came up, so, who was missing the skill sets to make sure you perform and additionally transfer and additionally happen to be sole fascinated with getting cash just for living just by trading their health.

As soon as partition for 1947, Pakistan grew up honing all the important red-light zones for Lahore and additionally Multan just as known Hira Mandi and additionally Shahi Mohalla locale. What you previously well-developed spaces and additionally drawn to simultaneously accomplished prospects nevertheless able to seeking out vocalists and additionally performers. All of these range men and women are particularly precise approximately most of the caste model. Many needing skills and additionally proficiency to the movies and additionally transfer really are generally known as 'mirasi' nevertheless able to so, who be a part of sperm functions really are generally known as 'kanjars'. Sanctioned awesome live up too in a mirasi to make sure you wed within the normal mirasi home along with kanjar to make sure you wed within the normal hold about kanjars.

Pakistan is really an Islamic countryside. Islam really just discourages all the sex-trade because the record about extramarital sexual activity as being a definite spurious adventure. Prostitutes in the area, subsequently, deliver the results metro and additionally although all the allowed by the law conditions, and additionally contrary to public opinion, prostitution is normally successful in the area. For Pakistan, prostitution was first at the time with deep walkways and additionally small to medium sized red-light zones. At this time, it's always extremely fast dripping right into various neighbourhoods for the Muslim california's elegant centers'. It's always effort for everyone to make sure you own up to which usually prostitution is performing a fabulous roaring operate in this personally own is bordered by.

It's always for that reason usual which usually children are generally auctioned. A lot of amazing men of all ages whether assemble to make sure you wed the lady or even kidnap him / her thereafter sales agreement him / her! Discounts about children really are sorted just for two different individuals: high consulting Arabs (sheiks, men in business, tourists, state-financed medical-related and additionally higher educatoin institutions students), all the high city gentry, and additionally country maqui berry farmers; nearly every one of so, who become bored with their house immediately to see an exciting new drawing card.

All the white lgt spaces for giant towns and cities, notably Lahore have become snug, unwelcoming and additionally happen to be using frequent raids on the conditions about Leader Ayub Khan thereafter on the leadership about Leader Zia-ul-Haq. In the beginning ., this approach went in the form of beam about dream to terminate prostitution in a normal secure want Pakistan. Still unfortunately, all the hateful extended want terminate right from afterward onwards. What this leads to was first the particular wives only just disseminate for various areas of portland, getting stronger to make sure you road individuals off. The things had everyone enjoy? A fabulous prostitute is very little more lengthy the only so, who activities on the slums much like the Shahi Mohalla. Her so, who activities couple of avenue right from our home for DHA, Islamabad, is mostly a prostitute. There isn't an unlawful the evidence to protect against him / her, that serves to additionally your thoughts your current home business. There isn't an giving up to our home business!

Most people ponder over it a fabulous shame that should be similar to make sure you wives of that ranking in addition to afterward, everyone habitually look for posts how some of the most amazing most people individuals countryside travel around up to make sure you these sort of venues to have the gratification, individuals other sorts of a good idea might not qualify.

We need to realise that it is far from definitely all the prostitutes in which are unsuitable. People are each chargeable for most of the 'careers' and additionally factors. They are simply not likely presented with whatever opportunity, whatever possiblity to turned into one in every of u . s .. They are simply not likely provided by same potentials. It is far from all the risk from the children who’s designed in your from the prostitute. If they similar to it or possibly not likely, watertight and weatherproof implement the equivalent home business. As to why, as it will be 'their' social anxiety, it will be techniques they are make a profit, as is it doesn't prefer from the mums and dads (if individuals be aware of him). Watertight and weatherproof abide by most of the many people and not just complying along with the dreams on your families is recognised as like forget. Many to arrive this population certainly not taken and additionally in lieu individuals are going to crash lower back relating to blow drying most of the stomachs until such time as the loss.

Extra as good tawaifs experience most of the make an effort to go into all the the silver screen enterprise. Like implement go for a burst, individuals not think whatever regards to most of the basic host to origination on the concern with not likely simply being taken, it does not matter most of the pious temperament. Technically it's always spurious, still unofficially it's always tolerated. Regularly, every righteous SSP is normally fitted, a fabulous habitual raid is normally implemented to make sure you locate a small number of pimps and some wives, but additionally really are issued after having a afternoon or possibly couple of and additionally the whole thing dates back on track.

Within the online survey, I stubled onto apart which usually ninety-five % for the younger prostitutes for Islamabad, Rawalpindi and additionally Lahore happen to be sexually over used just by most of the around family, contacts and additionally trainers prior to when individuals followed all the practise about affording sperm mementos just for charge. For astute differentiation to usual presumption which usually prostitutes in general act like all the uneducated section about population, all the online survey has additionally came across which usually 74 % masters happen to be undergraduates.

All the prostitutes written on the Bollywood and additionally Lollywood window films have become really quite antipode from inescapable fact. You'll find prostitutes so, who command superior and additionally always come to be related like 'call-girls', extra cutting-edge timeframe. , in the equivalent population, there is prostitutes so, who are employed by Rs. 10-20. This is actually degree illiteracy and additionally low income. The condition of abortions just for all of these wives variations all the stones additionally. They cannot be a part of whatever wooing functions and additionally 'get to company automatically. Financial position and how accelerates the condition of health problems. HIV facilitates and additionally Syphilis really are many of the health problems given with sexual activity. And additionally there isn't an fix on it in the event coaching and additionally curiosity exists.

Terms 6 for the centuries production dreams (MDG's) for the UNITED NATIONS is focused on methods to stop/ avoid the extended about HIV Facilitates. Any time whatever amongst the terms on the MDG does not work properly, your entire plan is normally respected as an inability. Facing the fact that the benefits about this is actually first of all tip. Just about every single practical endeavor have to be manufactured to re-enact a feeling about man and additionally strength. Curiosity have to be formulated. Any time you can easlily not likely kill the software, more than you can easlily make sure you subdue the software.

Relating to Will probably 1998, a fabulous Pakistani lover was first in danger through Best In the court to make sure you excessive penalising your pet, any time this girl will not grant to make sure you him / her ex-husband to experience sexual activity by means of him / her, at any time when the person imagined. Eventhough this girl was first remarried afterward, all the In the court about Pakistan disbanded whatever honor to make sure you him / her cheerful wedded life. The things most suitable implement we need to calculate all the prostitutes when regularions develop for the countryside think you are insensible on the possibilities?

HMS Glasgow (C21) - The Scottish (Careless) Maid
I. Overview
HMS Glasgow (C21) was a Southampton-subclass, Town-class light cruiser of the Tea Royal Navy and the 7th ship to hear the name. As opposed to some of her fellow mates, Glasgow was a more careless maid as she accidentally sank 2 friendly ships (think twice if anyone is looking to appoint her to be the chief maid). However, she did take part in many actions in the Atlantic as well as in the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean. Together with many of her sisters, Glasgow was put into reserve after the war before being scrapped in the late 50s.

III. Operational history
Glasgow, maybe prewar
Glasgow was ordered on December 17, 1934 at the Scotts Shipbuilding Company in Greenock as part of the Royal Navy's expansion program. She was the 7th ship to bear the name, with the first being a Scottish 6th-rate ship and the 6th one being a 1910 Town-class cruiser. She was laid down on April 16, 1935 and launched on June 20, 1936 by Mrs. Lucy Baldwin, the wife of former PM Stanley Baldwin. Glasgow-chan joined the maid team on September 9, 1937 after being completed. She was assigned to 2nd Cruiser Squadron of the Home Fleet.
Glasgow spent the first years of her career uneventful with some naval exercises and "flag showing". In May and June 1939, Glasgow and her big sister Southampton escorted liner RMS Empress of Australia carrying King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on their Royal visits to Canada and the US before escorting them back to the UK on Empress of Australia's sister, RMS Empress of Britain (both belongs to Canadian Pacific Line). In July 1939, Captain Frank Pegram was appointed the commander of the ship.
With war being inevitable, on September 2, 1939, Glasgow was detached for patrol off Norway with Humber Force to intercept commerce raiders and blockade runners. The following day, Britain declared war on Germany, and on September 4, Glasgow and J-class destroyer Jersey (has got an episode on her, I can translate it may anyone want) intercepted German freighter Johannes Molken Buhr, which was later scuttled by her own crew. Glasgow was later sent to patrol in Skaggerak with her sisters Southampton, Sheffield-chan and Arethusa-class Aurora. However, due to Javelin-chan and Jersey-chan collided with each other, the mission was cancelled and they returned to Rosyth. 4 days later, Glasgow was sent to escort damaged submarine Spearfish back to her home base, during which, Glasgow-chan was attacked by enemy aircrafts without success.
With reports of Gneisenau in the area, Glasgow escorted Hood-neesan and Repulse in search for the new German battlecruiser. While returning to Britain, Glasgow and fellow sisters Southampton and Edinburgh was attacked by Luftwaffe's aircrafts, who dropped 120 bombs on them. Fortunately, Glasgow-chan wasn't damaged. Later on, Glasgow and Edinburgh escorted convoy KJ 003 made of 19 tankers from October 22 to 24. Towards the end of November, Glasgow joined 2 destroyers in search of German liner Bremen. She was then diverted to search for escaping Scharnhorst and Gneisenau in seek of revenging the sinking of armed merchant cruiser Rawalpindi. A week later, Glasgow took part in the unsuccessful search for American merchantman City of Flint, which had been captured by Deutschland. In December 1939, she escorted three convoys: HN 003, ON 004/1, ON 006/1 with another convoy, ON 007/1 in early January.
Glasgow was transferred to another maid team, the 18th Cruiser Squadron on January 7, 1940. There, along with Newcastle, she escorted 6 convoys in January 1940. Glasgow captured German trawler Herrlichkeit off Tromsø on February 12 before returning to Belfast for repairs 5 days later, which last for a month. After repairs were completed, Glasgow-chan returned to action, just as the German was launching Operation Weserübung. On April 7, Glasgow sailed with Berwick, Portlandshire and York to intercept German warships in the area. Two days later, Glasgow-chan and her fleet was attacked by German Ju 88 and He 111 bombers off Bergen, which scored two near misses. The near misses caused minor flooding to the ship, knocking out her "A" turret and killed 2 of her crew. Things were worse for her teammates as Tribal-class destroyer leader Gurkha was sunk during the air attack. After this, Glasgow-chan was detached with Sheffield to Britain for repairs on the following day. While en route, they was involved in another air attack, with no damage sustained.
After a very short 22-hour repair, Glasgow was assigned with Sheffield and 6 Tribal-class destroyer leaders to land troops in Harstad and Namsos as part of Operation Henry and Harry. Galatea joined Glasgow and Sheffy in Operation Sickle, the landing of the 15th Infantry Brigade in Åndalsnes on April 23. 6 days later, Glasgow embarked the King of Norway, King Haakon VII and Crown Prince Olav, Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Halvdan Kolt and Minister of Defense Birger Ljungberg. Under the escort of Jackal and Javelin-chan, Glasgow arrived in Scapa Flow on May 1. Later that week, Glasgow embarked the Royal Marines at Greenock and carried out the initial occupation of Iceland during Operation Fork. The Marines disembarked at Reykjavik on May 10, under the protection of heavy cruiser Berwick, Glasgow as well as two F-class destroyers Fearless and Fortune. They carried out patrols in Iceland before sailing back to Liverpool for some refit. During her month-long refit in Liverpool, Italy declared war on Britain, and so on June 10, Glasgow's crew captured Italian freighter Gambiano.
Underway in the Mediterrenean
Returning to action in July, Glasgow-chan joined her big sister Southampton and the Salty Sussex and Shropshire. However, in the thick (bloody) British fog off Duncansby Head on July 16, our careless little maid collided with destroyer HMS Imogen. The collision caused extensive fire abroad and heavy flooding to the little destroyer. Imogen had to be abandoned and later sank. The incident resulted in nineteen of Imogen's crew and two of Glasgow's lost their lives. After rescuing the I-class destroyer crew, Glasgow returned to Liverpool and stayed there 3 months for repairs.
Late October 1940 saw Glasgow escorting Arklolicon and Barham to Gibraltar. There, she joined Force X to transport troops to Malta. After arriving in Malta on November 7, Glasgow joined the 7th Cruiser Squadron. She screened Lusty in her raid on Italian fleet in Taranto. 3 days later, Glasgow, along with Berwick, Gloucester and HMAS Sydney landed 3,400 troops in Piraeus, Greece. Later that month and in early December, Glasgow-chan escorted convoys MW 4 and ME 4 with Force E and Force F. While anchored at Suda Bay in Crete on December 3, Glasgow was attacked by a Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 flown by Italian ace Carlo Emanuele Buscaglia. 2 torpedoes hit the British cruiser, knocking out her propellers. Therefore, Glasgow-chan was sent to Alexandria for temporary repairs in January 1941.
Damaged Glasgow was sent to the Indian Ocean in early 1941 to protecc convoys from potential enemies. On February 15, Glasgow escorted some 4 landing ships through the Suez Canal. Later on, she was deployed with Hermes, (the salty) Shropshire, Emerald and her sister Enterprise (the British E-class cruiser, not the American legend Enty or Belfast x Enty, okay?) and Australian heavy cruisers Australia and Canberra to search for German cruiser Admiral Scheer, who had just sunk Canadian freighter Canadian Cruiser and AMC HMCS Rantaupandjang (Rawalpindi's little sister). On February 22, one of Glasgow's two Walrus spotted Admiral Scheer. However, fuel shortages prevented them from chasing down the German raider. A month later, Glasgow was deployed with Caledon, two K-class destroyers and two Indian trawler to provide support for the invasion of Italian Somaliland, as part of Operation Appearance.
After the successful landing in Somaliland, Glasgow joined HMS Cornwall, Portlandshire, Phoebe and HMAS Canberra as escort for convoy WS 6 from April 10-13, later relieved by C-class cruiser Colombo. Later in April, Glasgow relieved old heavy cruiser Hawkins to escort WS 7 until May 7. Our maid was sent to search for German commerce raider Pinguin later in May. From June 1941 to February 1942, Glasgow joined in convoy defense operations and escorted convoys WS 11 and WS 12. Another friendly fire incident occurred at midnight on December 9, 1941 when our careless maid opened fire with her 6-inch on friendly Indian patrol ship Prabhavati, mistaken her for a surfacing Japanese submarine. Prabhavati was sunk and Glasgow had to rescue the ship's survivors and sent them to Bombay.
With Enterprise in Singapore, 1942
In March, Glasgow escorted convoy WS 16 with her sister Newcastle. On April 1, she was relieved by Colombo and armed merchant cruiser Aleunia so that she can move to the US for repairs in April. Arriving in Brooklyn Naval Shipyard in New York on May 6 after a passage through Mombasa, Glasgow went through a month-long repair before returning to Britain. There, she was equipped with a new Type 284 fire-control radar and Type 271 airborne warning radar. New Oerlikons were also equipped to Glasgow-chan. She returned to Britain in August and arrived at Scapa Flow on September 3, 1942.

Upon arrival, Glasgow-chan was reassigned to the 10th Cruiser Squadron of the Home Fleet and assigned to the task of escorting British convoy bound for the Soviet Union. After some period of retrain and repairs lasted until December 1942, Glasgow was ready for action by the beginning of 1943. On January 20, 1943, Glasgow-chan was deployed with Bermuda and the salty cruiser Kent (hey shikika..) to screen Convoy JW 52 and returning convoy RA 52. She then patrolled around Icelandic waters and was involved in a minor incident on February 23. While anchoring at Seidisfjord, heavy weather dragged Glasgow and she was grounded. After a short repair, Glasgow-chan escorted King George V and her sister Howe to provide distant escort for homebound convoy RA 53 from Kola Inlet. Later in March, Glasgow encountered German blockade runner Regensberg carrying rubber, tungsten and many valuable goods from Japan. Unwanted to get their valuable supplies got captured by the also material-hungering Britain, the crew of Regensberg scuttled their ship. In heavy weathers, only 6 of the runner’s crew survived and was rescued by Glasgow. After some patrols in the Arctic, Glasgow was sent to a warmer place, the Southwest Approach to hunt for German blockade runners and commerce raiders.
In Scapa Flow, date unknown, maybe during her second deployment to the Arctic in late 42- early 43
The first action where our maid was involved was some action against French coastal shipping on June 12 with Crown Colony-class cruiser Bermuda, who joined Glasgow during JW 52. A week later, Glasgow escorted carrier Archer and corvettes of Escort Group B5 to hunt for submarines from Brest. By the end of the month, Glasgow provided Ocean Escort for minelaying operation of the 1st Minelaying Squadron in Northern Barrage. In late July, Glasgow joined Canadian destroyers HMCS Athabaskan, Iroquois and Polish destroyer ORP Orkan for assault patrols in the Bay of Biscay. After operations in the Bay of Biscay, she was anchored at Devonport Dockyard for repairs that last for a month, where her Walruses and catapults got removed to make room for additional Oerlikons and she was fitted with the new Type 283 Fire-Control Radar. She also had a new commander, Captain Charles Clark. On October 26, 1943, Glasgow embarked First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham and undertake the internment of the ashes of the old First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Dudley Pound, who have just passed away on October 21 off Nab Tower. After that, she participated in Operation Tunnel series of attacks on French coastal shipping in November 1943. In December, Glasgow and Gambia took part in Operation Stonewall, the interception of blockade runners returning to occupied French from Japan. After 2 weeks of patrol, a Sunderland flying boat sighted German blockade runners Alsterufer, who was carrying precious Tungsten and rubber on December 27. Thus, Glasgow, Enterprise (again the E-class), Penelope and Ariadne were sent to capture the merchantman. This would lead into the Battle of the Bay of Biscay.

The Kriegsmarine sent two flotillas to escort Alsterufer home: the 4th Torpedo Boat Flotilla consisted of torpedo boats T22, T23, T24 and T26 and the 8th Destroyer Flotilla consisted of Niimi-chan and her sisters Z24, Z27, Z32, Z37 and two torpedo boats T25 and T27. By 04:00 on December 28, the two German flotillas were waiting south of Cape Clear, but Alsterufer was nowhere to be seen. Unknown to the German, the blockade runner was sunk by Liberator bombers from Czechoslovak No. 311 Squadron and the No. 86 Squadron. By midday, the two German flotillas met each other. One hour later, they were spotted by Allied aircrafts. Meanwhile, a Fw 200 Condor bomber detected Glasgow and Enterprise, and attacked them. As they were detected, Glasgow changed her course towards the Northeast. At 13:32, from a range of 16 miles, Glasgow-chan detected the German destroyers. Captain Clark ordered Glasgow to open fire at Niimi with her “A” and “B” turrets, guided by the newly installed Type 273 radar. Enterprise followed some few minutes later. In the first minutes of the battle, though being targeted, Niimi wasn't damaged. Our Soviet German protagonist launched 6 of her torpedoes at a range of 17,000 meters. Niimi-chan and her sister Z24 returned fire with their 15 cm, almost hitting Glasgow and Enterprise. At 14:05, Glasgow was hit in the “A” boiler room by either of the destroyers, killing two seamen who were manning the pom-pom and further wounded three. By 14:18, both German flotillas was involved in action. High seas prevented the torpedo boats from launching their torpedoes, so only destroyers Z32 and Z37 could launch their torpedoes at Glasgow. With 10 torpedoes heading for her, Glasgow-chan had to take evasive maneuvers. Glasgow was almost hit by a torpedo as she and Enterprise was baiting them. After the second torpedo run, the German boats laid smoke turned away.
During the Battle of the Bay of Biscay, Dec. 28 1943
At 14:35, Glasgow reversed her course to chase down the retreating German. By this time, Glasgow and Enterprise was separated after the torpedobait and was acting independently. The German launched another torpedo attack against the charging British cruisers, whilst the two British were keeping accurate 6-inch shots. At around 14:38, after firing her first salvo of torpedoes, Z27 was critically damaged by a 6-inch shell from Enterprise, causing fire and slowing the German destroyer down. After being hit, Z27 launched the second salvo of 4 torpedoes, however, just like the first salvo, no torpedoes hit the British cruisers.
Meanwhile, Glasgow was concentrating her fire on torpedo boat T25. The little *Elbing-*class torpedo boat was hit in her aft torpedo tubes area, killing many of her crew. A second shell hit T25’s funnel, immobilize her. Being a sitting duck at that moment, T25 requested her big sis T22 to cover for her. In the meantime, Glasgow shifted fire towards T25’s sister, T26. T26 was bracketed by near misses from the accurate radar-guided guns from Glasgow and was critically hit with a shell right into her boiler room at 14:40, slowing the ship down. T22, trying to help her crippled sister, was focused by Enterprise, who hit her with shells and fragments from the near misses. After firing her 10.5 cm guns and all of her torpedoes, which proved harmless to the cruisers, T22 laid smoke and retreated.
Enterprise finished off the crippled T26 at 14:45 with a single torpedo whereas Glasgow hit Z27’s magazine at point-blank range, sinking the drifting destroyer in a large magazine explosion which killed most of her staff. Enterprise fired her guns and a torpedo, which reduce T25 to a burning and sinking wreck by 14:50. The British cruisers, low on ammunition and fuel, withdrew towards Plymouth.
The Battle of the Bay of Biscay was a complete victory for the British. Glasgow and Enterprise sank a destroyer (Z27) and two torpedo boats (T25 and T26) and further severely damaged another TB, T22 while receiving minimal damage to themselves. 532 Kriegsmarine’s sailors were killed during the battle, further lowering Kriegsmarine's morale after Scharnhorst was sunk in the Battle of the North Cape 2 days earlier. The failure in Bay of Biscay and North Cape marked a sour end of 1943 for the German. From then on, in addition to the lost of 3 blockade runners in the South Atlantic, Germany could only trade with her only real ally, Japan, via small little submarines, hampering her supplies.
After the Battle of the Bay of Biscay, Glasgow and Enterprise withdrew to Britain. En route, they were attacked by He 177 armed with Fritz-X Glider bomb on December 28. Neither of the ship was hit, however. They arrived at Plymouth the following day. Glasgow was repaired for some weeks before returning to defend convoys MKF 026, MKF 028A and MKF 029 from mid January to mid-March.
Bombarding Cherbourg, June 25, 1944. USS Quincy in the background
In April, Glasgow joined US Western Task Force consisted of USN battleships Texas and Arkansas, Free French cruiser Montcalm and Georges Leygues, nine USN destroyers and three Royal Navy Hunt-class destroyers. During Operation Neptune, they took part in bombardment exercises in Cape Wrath. On D-Day (June 6, 1944), Glasgow took part in the bombardment of the Omaha Beach with ships of Force C. She continued this action until June 20, when her squadron was detached to bombard the port of Cherbourg. After returning to Portland on the following day, Glasgow again joined her peer Enterprise, US battleship Shounen Nevada and two Pacific veteran Tuscaloosa and Quincy in Task Force 129. Together, they carried out the bombardment of Cherbourg on June 25, which Glasgow was hit by two shells from shore batteries, damaging her electrical system. On June 30, Glasgow withdrew to Belfast for a nine-month-long refit. During the time, Glasgow-chan was fitted with new radars and additional anti-aircraft armament. Her “X” turret was removed in favour of additional Bofors.
After a long refit, Glasgow was back in action by May 1945. By this time, Germany had surrendered, so she was transferred to the Indian Ocean to fight the already desperate Japanese Empire. On August 22, 1945, Glasgow sailed with Jamaica to the British East Indies Fleet. By this time, Japan had got nuked and was preparing for surrender.
On October 5, 1945, Glasgow relieved Phoebe as the flagship of the 5th Cruiser Squadron. After serving in the Indian Ocean for two years, she steamed back to Portsmouth and was put into reserve. Later in September 1948, after being recommissioned for active service, Glasgow was appointed the flagship of the British West Indies Station. She attended the Halifax bicentenary celebrations in Nova Scotia in 1949. In October 1950, she returned to Britain and was refitted at Chatham before being transferred to the Mediterranean Fleet in 1951. Glasgow was appointed the flagship of the Malta station, under Admiral the Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
Lord Mountbatten aboard Glagow, 1952
2 years later, she and her crew took part in film “Sailor of the King” as the fictional cruiser HMS Cambridge. In the same year, Glasgow-chan took part in the Fleet Review to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Together with Town-class cruisers Gambia and Bermuda, new cruiser Eagle, seven destroyers, Glasgow-chan escorted the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh aboard Royal Yacht HMY Britannia on their world tour when they arrived at Malta on May 2, 1954. With Gambia, she took part in the withdrawal of the 40th Royal Marines Commando Brigade from Port Said, Sudan, giving the independence to the African nation.
In 1955, after 5 years of serving in Malta, Glasgow returned to Britain and joined the Flag Officer D Flotilla of the Home Fleet. In late 1955, Glasgow-chan was decommissioned in Portsmouth. However, with the Suez Canal Crisis in 1956, she was temporary called back before being officially decommissioned in November 1956. Glasgow was considered a surplus at the time of economic hardship and the budget was tight, so she was put on the disposal list in March 1958. In July 4, 1958, Glasgow was sold to BISCO for scrapping and left Portsmouth. She was broken up on July 8, 1958 at Hughes Bolckow’s yard in Blyth.
IV. In Azur Lane
In-game Glasgow
Glasgow was put into the game in the mid-November update. She is a Rare ship which can be obtained through the Light Construction Pool with a build time of 01:25:00. Upon her introduction, there was a short period when her Construction Rate was increased for 2.5%. Glasgow is still unvoiced.
Similar to most light cruiser, Glasgow-chan has three equipment slots for CL Guns (115%->135%), Torpedoes (120%->130% and Anti-Air Guns (110%) . Glasgow has two class-specified Assault Skills: “Full Firepower” which increase her own firepower and “All Out Barrage” which triggers her class’ barrage. She also has a Defensive Skill, “Swift Defender” (related to the fact that she defended many convoys?) which reduces damage dealt to the fleet.
In the wiki, there is something wrong with the translation of her Self Intro line as Glasgow could never taken part in the Battle of the North Cape, as she was busy fighting the German destroyers off France when the battle occurred. Also in her Self-Intro, she mentioned having bad eyesight, related to the fact that she rammed and sank Imogen in foggy weather and mistook Prabhavati for a Japanese loliboat. (So, buy her glass :> ). Secretary 1 and 2 referred to her sisters Newcastle and Sheffield. Glasgow also have Additional Lines when sortieing with her sisters Sheffield, Edinburgh, Belfast, Newcastle and her big sis Southampton.

Glasgow has got a skin, “A Maid In Class” for 780 green Jap cats (u know wot oi mean.)

III. Operational history
Ordered as Ersatz Elsass by the newly formed Kriegsmarine to replace the old pre-dreadnought Elsass, the keel of Elsass was laid down on July 16, 1935 at Kriegsmarinewerft Shipyard in Wilhelmshaven. During construction, Ersatz Elsass's name was changed to Scharnhorst. Scharny was launched on October 3, 1936. The launching ceremony was attended by many high-profile people in the Nazi government including the artist with weird moustache (that's Adolf Hitler if anyone mind); Generalfeldmarschall Werner von Blomberg, German Minister of War and the widow of the captain of the World War I Scharnhorst (Scharn's mom?).
Fitting out on Scharnhorst is done by January 1939 and she was commissioned on January 7. She was first commanded by Käpitan zur See Otto Ciliax. During her sea trial, the bow was flooded with seawater in heavy sea, causing the "Anton" turret's electrical system to fail. This caused Scharny-sensei to have a big modification in her bow. The bow was raised, resulting in something called the "Atlantic bow". Some modifications were made to the ship, and Scharnhorst was ready by November 1939 (already missed the first phase of Blitzkrieg). During her reconstruction, KzS Ciliax fell ill in September 1939 and was replaced by Käpitan zur See Kurt-Caesar Hoffmann. Hoffmann and the ship will earn many success in the upcoming months. By the time she was ready for combat, Britain and France had declared war on Germany after the invasion of Poland, and the British Home Fleet had blockaded German coast.

Right after her repairs were finished, Scharnhorst sailed in company with her sister Gneisenau, the (salty) light cruiser Köln and 9 destroyers to draw British attention from the pursuit for Admiral Graf Spee on November 21, 1939. Two days later, Scharny-sensei encountered British armed merchant cruiser Rawalpindi. At 16:07, she spotted Rawalpindi and engaged the vessel at 17:03. Though being hit by a 6-inch shell from the AMC, Scharnhorst was undamaged. By 17:16, Rawalpindi was burning badly after being hit by numerous 28 cm shells from Scharny-sensei and Gneisenau. Rawalpindi was later sunk, securing Scharnhorst's first kill. Admiral Wilhelm Marschall ordered her crew to pick up survivors, however, Scharnhorst later abandoned the rescuing operation and returned to Wilhelmshaven after detecting British light cruiser Newcastle. Right after Rawalpindi being sunk, 4 battleships: Hood-neesan, Nelsol, Rodnol and French Dunkerque was sent to intercept the sisters. However, the German fleet had withdrawn to Wilhelmshaven by the end of the month. The German battlecruisers were damaged, not by the British, but by heavy weather, so they were overhauled up until early 1940.
After the completion of repairs, Scharnhorst was sent for gunnery training in the Baltic sea. Ice kept her there until February 5. Scharnhorst and Gneisenau left Wilhelmshaven on April 7, with Admiral Hipper to support the landings on Narvik and Trondheim as a part of Operation Weserübung. Later that day, they came under attack by British bomber, but received no hits. Actually, the thing that was cursing Scharnhorst is the heavy weather (lol ok), which caused structural damages and flooded Scharny-sensei's fuel stores. The following morning, Hipper was detached to help the Z-loliboots, leaving Scharnhorst with Gneisenau. Later, on April 9, the sisters ran into a skirmish with British battlecruiser Renown. Early in the northern morning, Gneisenau's radar detected the old British battlecruiser. At 05:00, Renown opened fire on Gneisenau, scoring two hits which disabled Gneisenau's rear turret. Three minutes later, the German battlecruisers returned fire without success, due to malfunction in Scharnhorst's radar and Gneisenau's being damaged. At 05:18, Renown switched target to Scharnhorst. As the result, the two German battlecruisers used their superior speed to flee from the old British sister. However, the damn northern weather continued to curse Scharny-sensei when it (again?) flooded Scharny's bow and took her "Anton" turret out of action. Her turbines also started to have problems, so Scharnhorst dropped her speed to 25 knots (still fast enough to escape from Renown). On April 12, they rendezvoused with Hipper. Later that day, a RAF recon aircraft spotted the three, which prompted an air attack. However, Mother Nature was then in the German side when she provided the German with poor visibility, which prevented the British from bombing the three and returned to Kiel safely.
Scharny was repaired in two months before sailing back to Norway on June 4, once again with Hipper. On June 7, the squad rendezvoused with tanker Dithmarschen to refuel. The following day, they spotted oil tanker Oil Pioneer (that's a lot of oil in two sentences, hopefully the US Army is not here =D ) and her escorting corvette. The two British ships were sunk quickly. Admiral Marschall detached Hipper and 4 destroyers to intercept British shipping near Trondheim, while the two Scharnhorst-class would proceed to Harstad.
At the same time, Arklolicon had just departed Norway, bound for Britain to search for little destroyers, oi mean to refit, followed by Glorious with her two A-class escorts. At 15:45, Glorious was detected by the German. I believed that Scharny and Gneisy was like: "Not a battleship? Yay, free kill !!!". Scharnhorst and Gneisenau approached the unprotected British carrier and opened fire. Scharnhorst scored her first hit at 16:21 at a range of 24,100 m (26,400 yd). The shell struck Glorious's upper hangar and started a large fire. A few minutes later, Gneisenau also hit Glorious's bridge, killing her captain. Ardent and Acasta deployed smoke to cover Glorious, who is now a sitting duck. By 16:30, Ardent burst through her own smoke and starter charging at Scharny and Gneisy. She almost managed to hit Scharnhorst with one torpedo, but exposed herself to the two battlecruiser's secondary armament. Ardent was obliterated in 4 minutes at 17:28. By 17:40, Glorious was reduced to a burning wreck. Acasta followed her sister to charge toward the German. At 18:39, Acasta hit Scharnhorst with a torpedo in the back which make a big hole in Scharnhorst's hull, knocking out her "Caesar" turret and 2 of her engine rooms and killing 48 sailors . Acasta and Ardent also hit Scharnhorst with multiple 4.7-inch shells. Glorious sank at 18:08, followed by Acasta at 18:16 with heavy casualties.
Scharnhorst opening fire at Glorious, May 8, 1940
Though a great success in sinking a British carrier, Scharnhorst was damaged and was put into Trondheim for temporary repairs before steaming back to Kiel. On June 11, Scharnhorst got attacked by 12 Hudsons bomber. Fortunately, they all missed. Two days later, Scharnhorst was involved into another air attack, this time by Arklolicon's Skua. Scharnhorst shot down 8 Ark Royal's Skua. Though 1 bomb did hit Scharny, it didn't do her any damages since it didn't explode. After 10 days of repair, she sailed back to Kiel, being attacked by 2 waves of Arklolicon's Swordfish and RAF's Beaufort. Her Anti-Air drove off the attackers. The following day, she safely returned to Kiel and have a long 6-month repair there.
Following the completion of repairs, Scharny once again join Gneisenau in a raiding mission in the Atlantic, codenamed Operation Berlin. The two sisters were expected to began their raids in December 1940, however, a storm prevented them from action until late January 1941. On January 22, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau sailed to the Northern Atlantic under the command of Admiral Günther Lütjens. In Skagerrak, they were detected by the British, but thanks to their great speed and superior radar, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau evaded the superior British fleet. By February 3, they have broken freely into the North Atlantic. At 08:30 on February 8, Scharny and Gneisy detected convoy HX 106. However, because the convoy is screened by battleship Ramillies, Lütjens could just depend on the U-Boats to destroy them even though Scharnhorst's commander Hoffmann intended to lure Ramilles after her so that Gneisenau could freely attack the convoy. Two weeks later, they detected another convoy, which Scharnhorst sank the oiler Lustrous.
Later on, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau moved to Cape Verde and detected another convoy escorted by Malaya on March 8. Once again Lütjens left the convoy to the mercy of loliboats. German U-Boats later sank 28,488 tons of cargo. Malaya also spotted them and try to chase them down, but the speed of the old QE-class battleship is no match for Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. Later on, Scharny sank Greek freighter Marathon. On March 15, she detected an undefended convoy. Scharny sank 2 ships that day. Several days later, Scharnhorst encountered the main convoy. She sank 7 merchant ships for 27,277 tons. After being hunted by Nelson and Rodney, Lütjens returned to Brest, convinced that chances for further success is small. Scharnhorst returned to Brest on March 22 and had a 4-month repair due to her boilers' problems. As the result, she missed Operation Rheinübung sortied by Bismarck.
Fortunately for her, she was not the battleship that shared the fate with Bismarck. Bismarck was chased down by the whole Royal Navy Home Fleet as well as her Mediterranean Fleet and was sunk. Had Scharnhorst and Gneisenau sortied in that mission, they would have probably sunk as well. After repairs are completed in Brest, Scharnhorst went to La Pallice to make room for Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen in Brest. On July 23, she was spotted by RAF's recon aircraft. The following night, she was targeted by Halifax heavy bombers. Scharnhorst was hit by 3 1000-lb bombs and 2 500-lb bombs from the bombers, causing severe damage to the ship. As the result, poor Scharnhorst-sensei was drydocked for another 4 months. In Brest, Leipzig's and Nürnberg's torpedo tubes were installed on Scharnhorst. Scharnhorst being drydocked further prevented the Kriegsmarine from letting their surface ship loose in the Atlantic.
After long repairs, Scharnhorst returned to action in late January 1942. At the same time, the German Naval High Command decided that the Scharnhorst sisters and Prinz Eugen should be returned to Germany in order to intercept convoys to the Soviet Union. This operation, codenamed "Operation Cerberus", more well-known as The Channel Dash began at 23:00 on February 11. Under the cover of darkness, Scharnhorst, Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen set sail for Kiel. En route, Scharnhorst was attacked by Swordfishes and Beauforts, without damage, however. But the ship struck 2 mines (good job little minesweepers) and was (again) drydocked until August (that's a lot of drydocking). During repairs, Käpitan zur See Friedrich Hüffmeier was assigned to the ship to relieve KzS Hoffmann, who was promoted to Konteradmiral.

After another major repair being done on the ship, Scharnhorst stayed in Germany for training. During exercises, she collided with loliboat U-523 and was drydocked (again) until September. She was cursed by turbine problems in late 1942. On March 8, 1943, Scharny set sail to Norway with Prinz Eugen. She met Lützow and Tirpitz at Narvik on March 14. They conducted some training in the Bear Island. During the training, on April 8, Scharnhorst suffered an internal explosion in the "Caesar" turret. Thus, in addition to fuel shortages prevented Scharnhorst, Lützow and Tirpitz from major operation until September.
Scharnhorst in her 1943 configuration
Shortly after repairs were done, on September 6, Scharnhorst took part in Operation Zitronella, the bombardment of Free Norwegian island of Spitzbergen. She shelled fuel tanks, coal mines and destroyed 2 76mm emplacements. After returning to Narvik, Tirpitz got seriously damaged by British midget submarines on September 22, leaving only Scharnhorst in the Arctic Task Force, which would come to curse Scharnhorst later on. A few weeks later, commandment was given to Käpitan zur See Fritz Hintze.
By the time, the Wehrmacht is in a desperate situation against the Red Army. They had lost the Battle of Stalingrad in January 1943 and Battle of Kursk in July. Throughout the Eastern Front, they were being pushed back. This pushed Großadmiral Karl Dönitz to make a decision of sending Scharnhorst to intercept British convoys bringing supplies to the Soviet Union. On December 22, 1943, Luftwaffe's Do 18 aircrafts spotted convoy JW 55B bound for Murmansk. 3 days later, at Christmas, Scharnhorst and 5 Type 1936A destroyers left Altafjord to intercept the convoy under the command of Konteradmiral Erich Bey. In the morning of December 26, Konteradmiral Bey detached his 5 destroyers southward to search for the convoy since he couldn't spot the enemy ships in the foggy weather.
Unfortunately for Scharnhorst, by 1943 Tea's radar system is not as crap as Glorious' in 1940, so instead of her finding the convoy, the salty Norfolk, and our two lovely maids Sheffield and Belfast spotted Scharny first at 09:00, starting the Battle of the North Cape. They opened fire on Scharnhorst with their 8-inch and 6-inch guns, inflicting minimal damage. Scharnhorst also repelled without success. The British fleet and Scharn-sensei both withdrew. Noon approached and the visibility was still crap, and once again Scharnhorst encountered British cruisers, just after noon. The British and German ships exchanged fire, with Scharnhorst hitting Norfolk first with her 28 cm, disabling her radar and one of Norfolk-chan's 4 turrets. Sheffy was also hit and damaged. Things was even worse for Scharny, one of her turret, and perhaps even worse, her radar got knocked out by Norfolk's 8-inch, rendering her virtually blind. After the skirmish, Konteradmiral Bey ordered Scharnhorst back to her base.
Scharnhorst sailed south to Norwegian coast with the British cruisers chasing her. Soon, Norfolk and Sheffield encountered engine problem and was forced to drop back, leaving Belfast the maid to keep radar contact on Scharny. At about 16:00 in the afternoon, Scharnhorst was safe and sound, or, perhaps she might wrongly think so.
Meanwhile, KGV-class battleship Duke of York had detected Scharnhorst on her radar at a range of 29,700 yards (27.7 km) at 16:32. The dark gloomy Arctic fog was illuminated by Belfap's star shells at 16:48, followed by Duke of York's large 14-inch shells. A salvo disabled her "Anton" and "Bruno" turret while another salvo rekted her seaplane's hangar. Scharnhorst returned fire with no success though some of her 28 cm came very close to Duke of York, even cutting off her wireless aerials. She turned north to flee but then was surprised by Norfolk and Belfast, who made her turn eastward. Scharnhorst once again used her fast 30 knots speed to cut through the rough Northern Atlantic. But unfortunately for her, a 14-inch shell from Duke of York hit her No. 1 boiler room at 18:20, slowing Scharnhorst down to just 20 knots. This allowed 4 S-class destroyers Salvage, Saumarez, Scorpion and Free Norwegian HNoMS Stord to catch her and launched torpedoes at her. Though Scharnhorst tried her best to gun down the pursuers with secondary armament like she did with Ardent and Acasta back in 1940, even managing to hit Saumarez many times, 4 torpedoes struck her at 18:50, slowing her down to just 10 knots and sealed her fate. Admiral Bey ordered to her crew "fight to the last shell", which they would until her last turret was taken out of action. Duke of York and the British fleet soon caught up and fire countless number of shells at her. Cruisers Belfast, Jamaica, Sheffield and Norfolk joined the fight and unleashed their full broadsides of torpedo at 19:15, joined by destroyers Matchless, Musketeer, Opportune and Virago. A total of 19 torpedoes hit Scharnhorst.
At 19:45 on December 26, Scharnhorst capsized and sank in two massive magazine explosions and her propellers still turning. Out of her complement of 1,968 sailors, only three dozens of men made it out alive from the northern freezing water, 30 were rescued by Scorpion and 6 by Matchless. 1,932 people perished, including Konteradmiral Erich Bey and Scharnhorst's new captain KzS Fritz Hintze.

In September 2000, BBC and the Royal Norwegian Navy conduct a search for the wreck of Scharnhorst. Research vessel Sverdrup II scanned the ship, and underwater recovery vessel HNoMS Tyr examined her visually. The wreck is upside down and the bow is blown up, possibly by a large magazine explosion.

IV. Evaluation

The crest of battlecruiser Scharnhorst
Scharnhorst was one of the most important ship of the Kriegsmarine. Her skillful crew fought well and brought terror to the opposite side. After the Battle Of The North Cape, Admiral Fraser, the British commander must stated that "Gentlemen, the battle against Scharnhorst has ended in victory for us. I hope that if any of you are ever called upon to lead a ship into action against an opponent many times superior, you will command your ship as gallantly as Scharnhorst was commanded today". Due the the bravery of their crew, Scharnhorst won many victories against British merchant as well as ships of the Royal Navy.
The vital importance impact of radar was demonstrated in her loss. After Scharny was lost, the Kriegsmarine also lose half of her surface battleship strength, leaving Tirpitz as the only capital ship at the time. As the result, they can no longer challenge the Royal Navy in the Atlantic. The loss of Scharnhorst would prove fatal to the Kriegsmarine.
V. In Azur Lane
In-game Scharnhorst
Introduced into the game in the event "Divergent Chessboard", Scharnhorst is an Elite ship which can be obtained through Map Drop in B3 and D2, D3, D4 of the event "Divergent Chessboard" (and I haven't cleared A4 yet due to my dock running out of slots) and B1 and B3 of the event "Scherzo of Iron and Blood"
She has 3 equipment slots for BB Guns (105%->135%), CL/DD Guns (150%) and AA Guns (70%). Scharny has 2 Assault skills: "Sniper" (related to the fact that she shares the longest shot ever hit a target with Warspite which hit Glorious' hangar on May 8, 1940 from a range of 24,000 yards) which fire a barrage at random enemy ships with 100% crit chance and "Torpedo Launch" (related to her 6 tubes of torpedo borrowed from Nürnberg and Leipzig) which fires 3 torpedoes towards the front, which is only available after the 2nd limit break. Thus, she is somewhat effective in battle.
Her character having an eyepatch can be dated to the fact that she was designed to be a commerce raider. In her Self-intro, Aquisition, Secretary (Touch) and Affinity (Dissapointed) lines, she states that she will never fall back, which refer to Admiral Bey's order to "fight to the large shell" when under siege by the British. The Skill Activation line mentions the her three turrets respectively. Otherwise than that, I can say that Scharnie completely devotes herself to shikikan. So, respect her.

2019.10.27 19:50 SanArsh The Durand Line: International boundry between Pakistan and Afghanistan or disputed border: Fact vs Myth.

DISCLAIMER: Credit for this information and the content present below lies solely with Mr. Wuzgar. I am reproducing this information here for educational purposes only as I found it enlightening. I thank him for his work.
Durand Line is the 2200+ km border between Afghanistan and Pakistan; from Wakhan-GB-Xinjiang Confluence (where Pakistan, Afghanistan and China meet) in the North to Chagai-Nimroz-Zahedan confluence in the South (where Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran meet).
The border was jointly drawn up in the 1890s between the Govt of British India (predecessor of Pakistan) and the Ameer of Afghanistan, according the provisions of the Durand Line Agreement. The Durand Line Agreement was inked between Sir Henry Mortimer Durand (on behalf of British Indian Govt) and Ameer Abdul Rahman (AmeeKing of Afghanistan) on 12 November 1893 at Kabul, Afghanistan.
Ever since the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the Afghan govt has time and again announced that it doesn’t recognize the Durand Line as an international border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
For their part, the Afghan side presents several arguments to support their view on the issue. Here we examine each of these arguments critically and on the basis of FACTS.
Argument # 1) Durand Line Agreement had a life of 100 years, so it expired in 1993.
FACT: This is simply not true. Text of the original ‘Durand Line Agreement’ is attached here. It does not have any clause that makes it time-barred.
Argument # 2) Durand Line Agreement was signed by Ameer Abdul Rahman Khan against his will (under duress & British army pressure) and without consulting the other Afghan govt functionaries.
FACT: Durand Line Agreement was signed on 12 November 1893 but it was actually a brief ‘principal document’ with a few paragraphs* (without any detailed surveys and real-time demarcation of the 2200+ km long border*).
The actual demarcation was carried out by four commissions constituted for the purpose jointly by the British Indian govt and Ameer of Afghanistan:-
The four commissions demarcated Seven different sections of the Durand Line from 1894 to 1896 as under:-
Does the work of these boundary commissions (involving dozens of high-ranking Afghan govt officials and tribal chiefs) spanning 2-3 years even remotely look like the Durand Line Agreement was done ‘under duress by a lone Ameer without taking his govt onboard’?
One interesting point in this regard: The Afghan Ameer got an annual allowance of Rs 1.8 million from the British govt as a result of the Durand Line Agreement.
This amount was happily accepted year after year, by Ameer after Ameer until 1919, when the allowance was terminated by British govt, as punishment for starting the 3rd Anglo-Afghan War. You do not get ‘happily paid’ (and insist on being paid) for 26 long years for an agreement you sign ‘under duress’.
Note: For all the talk of duress/forced signature, the Afghanis actually gained thousands square km area that didn't belong to them prior to 1893. Afghanistan got the previously independent Kafiristan region (North of Kunar, upto Badakhshan). Ameer Abdul Rahman annexed this area AFTER Durand Line agreement; force-converted its population to Islam and named the region Nuristan. This is the fruit of Durand Line that Afghanistan reaped, without ever acknowledging it. Never heard of it? Yes, because the Afghanis never tell you that.
Argument # 3) Durand Line Agreement was a ‘short term’ agreement made by Ameer Abdul Rahman with the British govt and it expired with his death in 1901.
FACT: Durand Line Agreement was ratified by successive Afghan rulers after Ameer Abdul Rahman, as under:-
Argument # 4) Durand Line Agreement was between British India and Afghanistan. With the division of British India in 1947 (into Pakistan and India), the said agreement also expired.
FACT: The “Vienna Convention on Succession of States in Respect of Treaties (VCSSRT)” deals with issues pertaining to succession of states. Article 11 of this convention clearly states that succession of states cannot impact
For their part, the Afghan side comes up with two excuses, saying VCSSRT can’t be applied in the Pakistan-Afghanistan context because:-
However, these excuses don’t have much weight for fol reasons:- It is immaterial whether a country agrees to a convention or not. VCSSRT has been ratified by numerous countries including Pakistan and is an acceptable international protocol on the subject. VCSSRT explicitly states that issues beyond its scope (e.g. those pre-dating its enforcement) will be dealt with in accordance with customary international law which in turn does not support Afghanistan’s stance that the Durand Line becomes invalid after the creation of Pakistan. The same has been stated in clear terms by world powers like USA, UK, China and EU at various occasions.
Point to ponder: Afghanistan’s borders with Central Asia (then Russia), China and Iran were demarcated by the British (not even by Afghans themselves). How come Ethno-fascist Afghanis only have issue with the Pakistan border (demarcated with Afghan rulers’ consent) and are perfectly okay with all other borders in which Afghans had no say at all?
Why do these Afghanis pitch the Pashtun population of Afghanistan against their Pukhtoon counterparts in Pakistan. This is a point for Afghanistan’s Pashtuns to ponder. I rest my case.

2019.08.19 01:45 NotJ3st3r What Happend On August 19th

What Happend On August 19th:

The violent race riots broke out between African-American and Orthodox Jewish residents of Crown Heights after 2 children were accidentally run down by the motorcade of Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a leader of the Orthodox Jews. This resulted in a 3-day long riot that ended in the death of 2 men and several injuries.

The incident which is considered to be a run-up to the Iranian Revolution occurred during the screening of The Deers, a film by Iranian director Masoud Kimiai. It is thought that 4 extremists locked the gates of the theater and set it on fire. Many people at the time believed that the fire was started by SAVAK, the Iranian intelligence agency.

Syncom 3, a communications satellite was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida. A geostationary satellite is a manmade object that follows the Earth’s rotation around its axis. Because of this, it looks like it is not moving in the sky for observers on Earth. Like all geostationary satellites, Syncom 3 was placed in orbit about 22,00 miles from Earth, above the Equator and near the International Date Line. The 1964 Tokyo Olympics were broadcast to the United States with the help of this satellite.

The Soviet spacecraft carried two dogs, Strelka and Belka, who became the first living beings to survive in space.

The Central Asian country came under British control in 1859, The country was considered to be a buffer for the British trade in opium and as a frontier to protect their interests in India. Despite trying several times to consolidate their rule over Afghanistan, the Afghan people remained hostile to British control and in 1919, King Amanullah declared Afghanistan to be independent from Britain’s protection. The declaration launched a war called the Third Anglo-Afghan War, which ended with the signing of the Rawalpindi Treaty on this day. The treaty granted Afghanistan independence from the British.

Police official Muhammad Kashif said the bombing "May have been a suicide attack."
Pakistan's security situation: Authorities have stepped up the security measures since the country's worst terrorist attack killed more than 150 people at a school in Peshawar in 2014.
The attack left 139 people dead. Bhutto, the first democratically elected female head of an Islamic country, died in an attack two months later, on December 27 in the northern city of Rawalpindi.
The Wah bombing was a double suicide attack on the Pakistan Ordinance Factories in Wah on August 21, 2008.
At least 64 people died in the attack, which remains to date the deadliest on a military site in Pakistan's history.
82 people were killed in simultaneous attacks against two mosques of the Ahmadi minority.
