Senator Muhammad Talha Mehmood has made a name for himself as a man of principle and discipline, both in his personal and professional life. His commitment to fiscal responsibility and austerity is well-known, and his dedication to serving the people of Pakistan without taking personal benefit has been lauded by many. In light of this, the federal cabinet’s austerity plan is welcomed with open arms.
Senator Muhammad Talha Mehmood has always been an example of frugality and austerity. As a member of the Upper House Senate and chairman of several committees from 2006 to today, he has never taken any salary or other benefits. This is despite the fact that he is one of the most respected and influential members of the Senate.
His commitment to austerity is even more remarkable considering that he is now a Federal Minister. As a Federal Minister, he has not taken any official benefits and has continued to conduct himself with humility and austerity.
It is therefore heartening to note that the Federal Cabinet has recently announced its austerity plan. This plan is designed to ensure that the national treasury is managed with integrity and responsibility. It is also designed to ensure that national resources are used in a manner that is consistent with the principles of good governance.
The austerity plan is a welcome step towards ensuring that the nation’s resources are used for the benefit of the people. It is also a sign that the Federal Government is committed to prudent and responsible financial management.
Senator Muhammad Talha Mehmood has always been an advocate of austerity and frugality. He has consistently demonstrated his commitment to this principle. His example should serve as an inspiration to all members of the Senate and the Federal Government.
We, therefore, applaud the Federal Cabinet’s austerity plan and urge all members of the Senate and the Federal Government to follow Senator Muhammad Talha Mehmood’s example. This is the only way to ensure that the nation’s resources are managed in a responsible manner and that the people benefit from them.
In conclusion, Senator Muhammad Talha Mehmood’s commitment to fiscal responsibility and his dedication to serving the nation make him a perfect role model for embracing the federal cabinet’s austerity plan. His selfless stance of avoiding any personal gain from his positions clearly proves his commitment to the nation’s welfare. His example should be followed in order to ensure our nation’s fiscal prosperity and stability.

But amid all of this destruction lies the most tragic destruction of all; the destruction of religious heritage. In the past few months, numerous Islamic architectural sites in India have been demolished, including the iconic Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. This has sparked the concern of the international community, with even UNESCO voicing its support for the protection of archaeological sites worldwide. This gives rise to questions regarding the lack of action taken by UNESCO in response to the demolition of masjids in India – especially since this is a direct violation of international law. In this blog, we will attempt to explore these issues and consider why UNESCO has chosen to remain silent on the destruction of masjids in India.
We have seen the horrifying destruction of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, one of India’s most iconic Islamic sites, as well as numerous other sacred places of folk religions and faiths across the region. The demolition of these important places of worship has caused great trauma to local people and has stirred up a great deal of emotion towards the Indian government for the violation of their religious sites.
Shockwaves of protest are reverberating throughout Occupied Jammu and Kashmir after reports emerged that pro-Pakistan slogans were raised in the Taryath Tehsil of Rajouri district. The region, which is already subject to an increased presence of Indian military forces and draconian laws such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, has now been rocked by this show of defiance. The incident is a stark reminder of the simmering tensions beneath the surface in the region, and the deep-rooted discontent with India’s illegal occupation of the territory. The lack of accountability and oversight from the international community has allowed Indian forces to carry out human rights violations with impunity. While the world watches silently, it is vital that the international community takes a stand to ensure the protection of basic human rights in this highly contested region.
The scenic state of Jammu and Kashmir has been thrown into the chaos of late, with tensions escalating between India and Pakistan after the raising of pro-Pakistan slogans in the Rajouri district’s Taryath Tehsil. What is often overlooked in the midst of the political unrest, however, is the destruction of the religious heritage that has taken place in the region over the past few months.
World Religion Day is an important reminder of the need for tolerance, respect, and mutual understanding between people of different faiths and religious systems. Even though India has a long history of co-existing religious groups, the current Government, under the leadership of the BJP, has perpetuated cynicism, animosity, and hostility across the country in regard to Muslims and Christians. Sadly, many laws have been passed in the name of “nationalism” or “protecting Hindu culture” that actively discriminate against these religious minorities, including the banning of certain foods, businesses, and practices. Despite these challenges, World Religion Day is still a moment to reflect and recognize the importance of religious diversity and peaceful coexistence in modern India.
World Religion Day, which is held annually on the third Sunday of January, serves as an important reminder of the need for mutual understanding and tolerance between different faiths and religious systems. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the disruption and destruction that has taken place in Jammu and Kashmir in recent months. People of the region have experienced great upheaval since the BJP took control of their state government and this has been a great source of frustration and anguish for many in the region.
People from the region of Jammu have experienced a great deal of disruption since the BJP took control of their state government. PDP President Mehbooba Mufti has stated that the saffron party has been engaging in destructive politics, sacrificing Jammu’s interests to benefit big corporate houses. According to Mufti, the once vibrant economic hub of the erstwhile state has become the “worst victim” of the BJP’s political maneuvers. Join us as we explore how the BJP’s actions have impacted Jammu, and what developments can be expected in the region in the upcoming future.
The Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands have long been a source of intrigue for Indian history. Located in the Indian Ocean, these islands have seen a turbulent political history, being handed over to India by the British in 1950 against the principles and provisions of the Indian Independence Act of 1947. At the time, India was given these islands instead of Pakistan to avoid political turmoil from an unjust division of the Nicobar Islands. In 1956, India declared the islands a Union Territory, making it the smallest in the nation, with a total surface area of 32 sq. km, a lagoon covering 4,200 sq. km, and a territorial water spread of 20,000 sq. km. With a population of around 65,998, it is overwhelmingly Muslim majority, making up 96.58% of the population, and Hindus account for 2.77%. From its contentious political history to its overwhelming culture, these islands are a curiosity worthy of further exploration.
The Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands located in the Indian Ocean have seen a tumultuous history, with their incorporation into India going against the prevailing democratic principles at the time. The islands have a very distinctive and unique culture, with their own religions and languages. In light of the destruction of religious sites in Jammu, it is important to also recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of the islands’ culture and respect the beliefs and customs of their people.
Religious sites are essential to the integral functioning of society and to allow for people’s freedom of worship. Similarly, cultural heritage sites must also be respected and recognized for their great historical significance. We must all strive to protect the rights and dignity of each religion, culture, and region, and foster mutual understanding between people from different backgrounds. Ultimately, our humanity can only be defined by our acceptance of all religions, regardless of their differences.
India, the country that has been illegally occupying the territory of Kashmir for decades, is now implementing its nefarious designs to colonize the UN-declared disputed region of IIOJK. The Indian blatant act of total disregard for the UN resolution on Kashmir may not only create catastrophic results for the already oppressed Kashmiris but also affect the peace and stability of the region
India is implementing its nefarious designs to colonize the UN-declared disputed region of IIOJK. The Indian blatant act of total disregard for the UN resolution on Kashmir may not only create catastrophic results for the already oppressed Kashmiris but also affect the peace and stability of the region.
The Indian government has been trying to change the demography of Kashmir by encouraging migration from Jammu and Ladakh regions in order to make it an exclusive Hindu state. It is a well-known fact that more than 90% of people living in this region are Muslims and about 10% are Hindus. The present population ratio is about 55:45 which means that India wants to change it to a 55:45 ratio by encouraging migration from Jammu & Ladakh regions.
India has been using every possible method including economic sanctions, terrorism, and other covert activities like propaganda, etc., to achieve its goal of establishing its hegemony over this disputed area through its proxy organizations.
India’s actions in the disputed region of Kashmir are nothing short of despicable. The country’s brazen disregard for the UN resolution on Kashmir could have devastating consequences not only in the region but also around the world.
We must all do everything we can to stop India’s war on Kashmir. If we don’t, there will be no peace or stability in this region—or anywhere else.
We must stand up for peace, justice, and human rights. We must not allow India to take over the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir. The Indian government is in the process of colonizing the region by treating it as its own territory and ignoring UN resolutions. If we don’t speak out against this act, then it will only be a matter of time before India claims all of Jammu and Kashmir.
If we look around in our society we will notice that there are many problems and finding out their solutions is not an easy job as it needs a lot of courage and constant hard work to look deeper into the root cause of any problem, So I decided to write about the most common problem which we as a nation face on an everyday basis and that is lack of Merit.
This issue really needs to be brought to our attention as it creates lots of problems in our beloved country Pakistan, furthermore there is also a lack of a system to implement things according to merit which creates disappointment among the young generation. So when a well-educated student, try to seek a reasonable job according to his/her qualification they face severe insecurities and disappointment due to lack of Merit which makes them think that Pakistan is not a good enough place for their secure future, and keeping in view the current financial position of Pakistan this culture of favoritism and lack of merit could cause us to go bankrupt.
In order to address this problem, the government of Pakistan should provide job opportunities to the young generations on a merit basis so that the unemployed intelligent students would not be forced to migrate to the European and Middle Eastern states in the search of jobs.
The situation is even crueler for those unemployed middle classed generation who are not financially strong enough to afford the migration therefore, they are forced to stay unemployed in Pakistan, and they face severe difficulty to manage even the basic necessities of their life.
This is the prime responsibility of the policymaker institution of Pakistan to address this problem of lack of considering merit during the hiring and recruitment process because it creates disastrous impact in multiple forms, Firstly, the deserving candidate did not get their due right, and secondly, the less competent person hired on the basis of reference and favoritism lacks the required skills and capabilities to perform their job with justice, hence creating hindrance in the way of progress and prosperity.
The process of hiring and recruitment needs to be reformed so that there should be a proper system and rules and regulations to be followed, only then we will be able to select the candidates on the basis of merit and the well-deserving candidate will get their due right.
Similarly, it’s really important to take initiative to discourage favoritism from our society as no country can make any progress without improving the efficiency and effectiveness of its departments which rely on suitable and capable Human resources hired through transparent means. This is the ultimate way to provide a secure future to the coming generations and to put the nation on the way to prosperity. Reforming our hiring process and making it transparent would also give our youth the required security and mental peace so that they can focus on their present without the fear of the future.
Governance is the term that can be defined as a rules, regulations and policies which runs and manage the state. Good governance in which always works towards facilitating the people and step forward to the progress of the people. Unfortunately, this is not true in the present as we can see from the history , Nowadays the government focusses on “facilitating its influential people to get votes for government. There is nothing to facilitate the poor people although all Parties claimed to serve with their best interest and getting votes.
It’s all about “getting the votes to establish the government and full fill their interest”.
The Voters always gives a vote in the hope of a better future. They look forward to the governess that will safeguard their basic right, provide the basic necessities of life but always disappointed, when they experience the reality. They realize that their votes has been trashed the Hopes. The lifestyle of the majority of the people remains below average due to lack of support from the government. They are not even provided with the basic necessities of life. The significant inflation in the recent few years.
hence they are lefting into the depression and darkness which will never end.
The tenure for the government in Pakistan is five years.They rule without making a significant impact on the Nation, Poverty graph still remain down.
Five years of the governance of any party always claimed the fantasy and which never existed in reality.
The people of Pakistan are facing difficulties due to lack of lake of administration in public sectors. The condition of major industries including agriculture is deteriorating day by day due to lack of proper governance and law and order situation. All the previous governments tried their best to improve the condition in every field but could not succeed in attaining the fruitful result due to the lack of proper mechanisms to run the departments.. There is an acute need for a proper administrative control mechanism to streamline the system.
First of all, we need to make the election process more transparent so that no one can come in power by unfair means and only the true representative of the masses forms the government because only those people will be more concerned towards the needs of the common person. After selection we can send our bureaucrats to academies for refresher courses where they can update their knowledge and get the required skills and training to improve their vision. We can also send them to different developed countries for training purposes. This is the first and far most important thing because these people are the true custodian of the general public interest and their selection and training is vital for the conduct of effective and efficient governance.
The second most important thing is the formulation of policies that are proper and realistic and that best suit the needs of the general public. These policies should be formed with consensus and must be implemented on just and fair ground as to get the desired results. After practical implementation of these policies if there is any evidence of loopholes, policies must be rechecked and reformulated accordingly. The next step is the formulation of policies of public sector organization, it is important to note here that the rule and regulation as well as the policies formulated for the general public organizations must be in line with the policies of the state. There should not be any conflict of interest at any level. The selection process at departmental level should also be made on purely merit basis. There should not be any references involved in the hiring process. In this way these departments will be strengthened. There is also a need for accountability at every level so that there would not be any opportunity for corruption and fraud.
There is also a need to reform the vital departments, namely, health sector, education department, police and judiciary
System. The educational system should be reformed as to implement a uniform system across the country so that every student gets equal opportunities for good jobs.
The health department should be provided with the required resources so that the poor people can avail the basic medical facility free of cost. The judiciary and police department should be made independent of political influence so that they can exercise their power without any fear. In this way we can ensure a proper law and order situation in the country. The agriculture department is also ignored in the present time, there is a need for proper supervision of the farmers and subsidies should be provided to them to strengthen the financial condition of the farmer and ultimately the agriculture sector.
Last but not the least, there is a need for commitment from all Pakistanis to work with patience, diligence and honesty because the major changes required commitment from every level. In this way we can flourish our country and pave the way of success for the generations to come.
