It was another chaotic day in the Punjab Assembly on Friday as the opposition agitated and staged a walkout to protest some objectionable remarks of the law minister against the daughter of a PML-Q leader and used the same remarks for Rana Sanaullah in the process.

Ayesha Ahad, the daughter of Malik Ahad, an accused in a kidnapping case of a Filipino, she is the third wife of National Assembly Member Hamza Shahbaz, son of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, which is why she is being implicated in the abduction case.She had a nikahnama and wedding pictures to prove her claims, and this was why she was being tortured on orders from the Punjab chief minister. Ayesha was brought to a Women Police Station in Race Course, she raised hue and cry after her interim bail was canceled.She had not kidnapped anyone but a case of kidnapping for ransom had been registered against her because she had married Hamza Shahbaz against the will of Shahbaz Sharif.

The family of Ayesha is receiving threats from the Punjab government for not withdrawing the claim that she (Ayesha) has a “matrimonial relation” with a scion of the Sharif family.

The wife of ailing PML-Q leader Ahad Malik Rifat Ahad said the PML-N people, including an MNA, an MPA, a former prosecution secretary, a senior official of the Punjab government and a journalist, were on forefront in ensuring that she (Ayesha) must ‘cooperate’ when she was in police custody.

“We are receiving threats from the chief minister to ‘shut up’ otherwise get ready to face the music,” Further said contracted marriage with Ayesha one-and-a-half years ago. “We have proof and will present before the media shortly.” She said the way Ayesha had been brutally tortured clearly showed the ‘guilt’ of the Sharifs. “Now they are creating hurdles in getting Ayesha’s medico-legal.

مبین کے آخری لفظ،
مبین کی طرف سے خود کشی سے قبل اپنی ماں کے نام لکھا جانے والا خط –

This story is really heartbreaking & Scary part is that it’s becoming all too familiar in Pakistan look at these stories from Abbotatbad & Karachi in last one week. The sad incident of suicide of Mobeen just because he did not want to live in hostel, this incident raised many questions against our persistent unchecked failed educational system & for our parents.
This is a wakeup call for parents we need them to get more involved in their kids’ lives just sending them school is not good enough we just can’t outsource everything to these boarding schools and teachers . As parents we need to talk to our children on daily basis ask them how they feel? How’ school, who are their friends? Are they happy at school or their class? Explain them what is sexual harassment and child abuse in a decent but informative way? Encourage them to report and share everything with us.
HCP will continue to follow this story and will do its part to Stop Child Abuse. We will do more public’s awareness messages on this topic and will request all our viewers to do their part. Through awareness and education. Our goal is to join with other organizations and individuals who wish to ultimately put a stop to child abuse! We are speaking out for for the children who have no voice, who have no choice and who have no way of stopping the violence! We are stepping stones to help, and we are trying to wake up the Pakistan.

Mubin’s Suicide: What Education is doing with kids?

The boy killed himself because he disliked to live in a hostel. Following Mubeen suicide one more boy from Karachi committed suicide because he failed in an English test.

Imagine what a grim situation in surrounding education. Complete chaos and no one knows how to educate their children. Mostly parents do not follow their child’s God gifted talents and intelligence instead pursue their children only to enroll in such subjects which are a vogue and “In ”  in the society.

Result is this! The child could not continue because (s)he does not have a passion and likeness for these forcedly subject and got failed grades.

Our society, school and parents collectively failed to understand the nature of education and learning in ever evolving scenario of today. Our old paradigm of education still prevailed and we only follow what is an earning profession, and which can make our children powerful.

Status quo is the game of the day. If we want to save lives of millions student in future, we have to work on a new paradigm of learning and development.

We have to leave old concept and practices based on 19th century requirement. We live in a more interactive technology enabled and networked era. Our problems are different from those of last century.

Our parents specially need to know their children need more than before. It is a time of collaboration not commanding and controlling parenthood. Our children deserve to be taken on board on key career and learning decisions. Imposing decision can result the birth of rebellious behavior in children especially in youths.

It is a very sad to state that mostly people involve in education do not have clear understanding of objective of education and schooling. They only know and have concern on subject and completing curriculum and exams.

They do not bother to reflect on outcome of course. Their primarily responsibilities is to please parent with good grade of their children. There are very little institutions which are working something other than grade. Majority of educational institutions run without learning goal and objectives.

It seems that these institutions only care about results not the child and its personality. Bringing the educational institutions on learning and development paradigm is a challenging task but it’s the only way to look forward and give our children a bright future.

The turnout at a PTI rally in Lahore in October 2011 stunned Pakistan’s political classes

Once an international cricket star, Pakistan’s Imran Khan is now playing for a greater prize – to be his country’s next prime minister. But can he upset the political status quo?

‘What a beautiful country’

It is late afternoon but still oppressively warm as Imran Khan shows People & Power around the grounds of his house. It sits atop a ridge near the village of Bani Gala, just a few miles from Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, and has impressive views of the foothills of the Himalayas and the outskirts of the city.

As his dogs scamper around his heels, he is in a reflective mood – frowning as his attention is caught by some scruffy new buildings nearby. “Look, it’s such a beautiful country, but we’re doing everything to destroy it. Just look at that unplanned settlement, all unplanned … which is why I went into politics.”

If his remarks seem just a little too rehearsed, then perhaps it is understandable.

We are not the first journalists to visit him here and surely will not be the last and it cannot be easy to come up with fresh sounding justifications every time he is asked why he is trying to make a difference in his country. But what does seem genuine is his frustration with the political status quo in Pakistan and his resolve to do something about it.

“The country is in the grip of a political mafia. Basically there were two parties and they were taking turns in using politics to make money. So I came to the conclusion 16 years ago, either we fight for our country or we watch it go down.”

On the margins

Sixteen years ago Imran Khan was best known for his prowess on the cricket field, a legendary all-rounder who had come out of retirement at the age of 39 to lead Pakistan to its first and only victory in the sport’s 1992 World Cup.

But then after four years devoted to charity and social work (somewhat offset by an international reputation as a playboy and a nine-year marriage to Jemima Goldsmith, the daughter of the late British billionaire James Goldsmith), he grew increasingly disgusted by the suffocating bureaucracy and endemic corruption that he saw everywhere in Pakistan and decided to enter politics.

In 1996, he founded the Tehreek-e-Insaf (Pakistan Union for Justice or PTI) and was elected as its sole MP in the 2002 general election.

He spent the next five years on the margins of Pakistan’s political life – a high-profile figure who nevertheless lacked the popular support to challenge the power base of the country’s two largest parties, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

As the two parties’ leaders, Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto, fought for power through years dominated by the ever-present threat of army intervention, Khan and his tiny party were often dismissed as politically irrelevant and unlikely ever to be in a position to influence events.

Wave of popular disaffection

But in the autumn of 2007 things began to change.

That October, Khan and 85 other MPs resigned from the country’s parliament in protest at the presidential election, which General Pervez Musharraf was contesting without resigning as army chief.

Khan was briefly arrested in the emergency that followed and then re-emerged to become an increasingly vocal critic of the status quo.

And then in December 2007, Pakistan’s political scene was thrown into turmoil once again as the PPP’s Benazir Bhutto was assassinated at a campaign rally. Her husband Asif Ali Zadari was elected president in 2008, but since then he and the others of the old guard who survived Bhutto have seen their popularity wane, allowing Khan and the PTI to seize their chance.

In late 2011, he stunned the political classes in Islamabad by unexpectedly attracting hundreds of thousands of supporters to public rallies in Lahore and Karachi. Calling for a ‘tsunami’ to end the country’s political and economic problems, and declaring his determination to become Pakistan’s next prime minister, he has since been surfing a wave of popular disaffection that many observers now believe could propel him all the way to the top.

‘They want a change’

So can he really break the mould of Pakistani politics? In an effort to find out, People & Power sent filmmakers Karim Shah and Shad Khan to follow Imran Khan as he addressed rallies around the country.

With a general election expected this year, Khan hopes that his ‘tsunami’ will prove attractive in parts of rural Pakistan that have long been ignored or taken for granted by the two main parties. And judging from the enthusiastic reaction he gets everywhere he goes he is certainly making waves.

But it is hard to tell from the reaction to his stump speeches whether his growing popularity is due to his party’s policies – moderately Islamist, modestly conservative, de-regulatory, anti-elitist, avowedly anti-corruption but so far short on specifics – or just to the fact he is not from the PPP or the PML-N, with which people seem to be losing patience.

What is certain is that the rallies are well attended, that the PTI is now surging ahead in the polls and that Khan’s celebrity is proving attractive to a number of high-profile defectors from the main parties who have signed up to the PTI in recent months – politicians such as Shah Mahmoud, a former foreign minister of Pakistan who walked out of President Zardari’s government in February 2011.

This has caused some infighting among Imran Khan’s bedrock supporters, who, according to political commentator Talat Hussain, see the newcomers as opportunists. “These guys were seen with Musharraf, with Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister, the former dictator …. These people have not reinvented themselves, and suddenly they are sitting with Imran Khan shoving out the die-hard Imran Khan loyalists who were hoping to be the new politicians in Pakistan. It has created a lot of bitterness.”

But Khan himself clearly believes that this is his moment and that after 16 years of trudging along the lower slopes of Pakistani politics he is finally on the way to the summit.

“I think we’ll sweep the elections, the opposition can’t defeat us now, we might commit Hari Kiri by making stupid decisions but the opposition is not going to be able to challenge us now because people have decided against them. The people of Pakistan have already made up their minds, they want a change.”
