We Will Fight Alongside Pakistan Army: Sadozai Tribal Chief

by

Islamabad | The aggressive statement of the Indian Army Chief has been responded by the political and military leadership of Pakistan. However, the tribal leadership of the country has also expressed its deep concerns regarding the statement of the Indian Army Chief.


“The hostile statement of the Indian Army Chief cannot be considered as a statement of a soldier. Soldiers do not threat by using words, they let their actions speak. Indian Army Chief is fully aware of the consequences in case there is a war. He knows the extent to which the Pakistan Army could go against any misadventure.”

said Dr. Sardar Mohammed Kalim Khan, Tribal Chief of the Sadozai Tribe of Pakistan and Kashmir.


Dr. Sardar Mohammed Kalim Khan, a PhD in management sciences, is also a senior political leader of Azad Kashmir affiliated with the Jammu Kashmir Peoples Party (JKPP), a Kashmiri political party being headed by Sardar Khalid Ibrahim Khan. Keep Reading

Thirteenth Constitutional Amendment Under Review

by

Islamabad | The Federal Government of Pakistan has constituted a committee to review the 13th amendment of the Constitution Act 1974 passed by the Azad Kashmir legislative assembly.

The Azad Kashmir legislative assembly passed the controversial amendment at the behest of the former PML-N led Federal Government of Pakistan upon which the officials of defence ministry and foreign ministry had their reservations. However, these reservations were ignored by the former Federal Government and green signal was given to the legislative assembly of Azad Kashmir.

The Pakistan Tehreek Insaf led Federal Government took up the matter urgently within the first hundred days of its formation. The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, constituted a review committee under the supervision of the Federal Law Minister to review the 13th amendment of the 1974 Constitution Act of AJK. But the committee faced criticism for not having any members of the defence and foreign ministries in it. However, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, before going to Saudi Arabia directed that the senior officials of these ministries shall also be inducted as members of the review committee as the matters related to these ministries were also amended in the 13th amendment.

Police Break Up Muslim Religious Gatherings In Indian Held Kashmir

Police in Indian-controlled Kashmir have fired tear gas and used batons to break up religious processions marking the Muslim month of Muharram.

Authorities imposed a curfew in Lalchowk, the commercial hub of disputed Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar, fearing the religious processions Wednesday could morph into anti-India protests.

Clashes erupted when police attempted to stop groups of Muslims who were trying to break the curfew and hold processions at several places in the city.

Muharram, one of the most important holy days for Shiite Muslims, marks the death of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Hussein, in the battle of Karbala on Ashura.

Police detained over a hundred mourners, who were expected to be released later in the day.

Indian authorities “provide state facilities and protection to facilitate the annual Hindu pilgrimage in Kashmir but ban our traditional religious processions,” said Hakim Adil, a participant in Wednesday’s processions. Keep Reading
