            Current Event Cat of the Day: Pakistani Taliban Attack

            Current Event Cat - Karachi Airport Pakistani Taliban

            The Pakistani Taliban are at it again, this time for the bloody attacks on Karachi’s airport that killed least 24 people, including 10 members of their organization.

            Surprisingly the 25-year-old pregnant woman who was beaten to death by her family for marrying against the family’s wishes was not the worst thing to happen in Pakistan this month. Never one to be outdone by angry family members throwing bricks at a pregnant woman in the name of “honor”, the Pakistani Taliban decided to step up their game and attack the country体彩手机在线怎么下载’s busiest airport.

            On Sunday night, Taliban militants launched a violent assault on the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi complete with rocket-launchers, suicide vests, and grenades. Gunmen disguised as police guards stormed the international terminal, set off explosions and opened fire with machine-guns and rocket launchers, triggering a gun battle with police.

            “They were well-trained. Their plan was very well thought out,” Qaim Ali Shah, chief minister of Sindh province, said.

            Well not that well-trained… At the end of the six-hour assault, all ten attackers were dead and no planes had been hijacked.

            After Pakistani officials reclaimed control of the airport, the Pakistani Taliban was quick to claim responsibility for the attack.

            A spokesman for the group, Shahidullah Shahid, said the aim of Monday’s assault had been to hijack an aircraft, and was “a message to the Pakistan government that we are still alive to react over the killings of innocent people in bomb attacks on their villages”.

            Needless to say, the prospects for continued government-led peace talks with the Taliban are not looking so hot.

            This 9-Month-Old Pakistani Baby Has Been Charged With Attempted Murder

            9-MOnth-old Baby Musa Khan

            After Pakistan’s troubled police force failed to spot 6 foot 5 Osama bin Laden hiding in their backyard, they’re determined not to let any more criminal masterminds get away – especially not Musa Khan, a 9-month-old baby boy, who has been .

            Musa Kahn was charged alongside four adults in connection with a violent protest in a Lahore slum back in February. During the protest, slum residents threw stones at gas-company workers attempting to disconnect households that didn’t pay up. The police subsequently charged the entire family, including Musa, with attempted murder.

            PAKISTAN-CHILDREN-JUSTICE-POLICEThe ridiculousness of the case became apparent when the child was required to appear in court. Forced to make an appearance and record his thumbprint (since he couldn’t actually sign his release papers), the baby screamed and cried, and required a milk bottle to calm him down.

            He does not even know how to pick up his milk bottle properly—how can he stone the police?” .

            The baby’s official charge is attempting “to murder with intention or knowledge” and if convicted, Musa may face a maximum of 10 years in prison, with even stricter penalties if a judge determines that the crime was done in “the name or on the pretext of honour.” However, the child’s lawyer has argued that children under the age of 7 cannot be prosecuted under Pakistani law.

            But Musa’s family is playing it safe and has whisked the child off into hiding until the case blows over. The boy’s grandfather revealed that he had sent the child 200 kilometres away to Faisalabad “for protection” against the “vindictive” police. Except it’s not really ‘going into hiding’ if you tell everyone where he was sent…

            I’m not sure what’s more shocking – that Pakistani police see no problem in prosecuting a 9-month-old baby or that Pakistan has access to nuclear weapons.

            Did Pakistan Know Where Osama Bin Laden Was Hiding Out?

            Osama Compound Pakistan

            When Osama bin Laden was discovered to be hiding in a three-story house less than a mile away from a Military Academy in Abbottabad, Pakistan and not some hidden cave in the mountains, everyone thought either Pakistan must have known about it or Pakistani intelligence is… less than intelligent.

            Pakistan has long denied they knew about Osama’s whereabouts and the U.S. has corroborated this story. But , Carlotta Gall, who spent more than a decade reporting from Afghanistan and Pakistan for the Times, suggests otherwise. Apparently documents collected from Osama bin Laden’s house in Pakistan and the word of an anonymous Pakistani official both contradict the official story from Pakistan and the U.S. that Pakistani military officials were unaware that Osama bin Laden was living in Abbottabad. According to the report, the chief of Pakistan’s intelligence service, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, “knew of Osama’s whereabouts,” according to its source, and the U.S. has “direct evidence” that Pasha knew where bin Laden was.

            Carlotta Gall says that documents from bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound contained correspondence between the terrorist and other militant leaders, indicating they were protected by Pakistan’s intelligence service. Bin Laden often traveled in convoys in plain sight to visit fellow terrorists and he was “always knowingly waved through any security checkpoints.”

            The U.S. still maintains that Pakistan had no idea where bin Laden was hiding out.

            “AS US officials have said, we have no reason to believe that anyone in the highest levels of the government knew about the location of bin Laden. That continues to be true,” when asked about the news report.

            Pakistan would have made an official response too, but Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is currently dealing with a . After finding the remains of a peacock and a very full cat on the lawn of his residence, Sharif interrogated the 21 officers guarding his 体彩手机在线怎么下载. 18 were cleared of any wrongdoing but three were suspended for negligence (aka not stopping the cat from eating his peacock). You know what… maybe they didn’t know about Osama bin Laden after all. Too many peacock crises to deal with.


            Current Event Cat of the Day: The Anti-Suicide Bomber

            Current Event Cat - Suicide Bomber

            A 15-year-old Pakistani boy is being hailed a hero after he tackled a suicide bomber – blowing himself up but saving his school.

            On Monday, ninth grader Aitzaz Hasan and his friends spotted a very suspicious looking man wearing a suicide vest hanging around outside of their school in Ibrahimzai, a Shia-dominated region of Hangu, in north-western Pakistan. Aitzaz and his cousin, Musadiq Ali Bangash, became increasingly suspicious of the stranger, who was attempting to pass himself off as a student by wearing a school uniform over his suicide vest.

            Despite warnings from the others students to ignore him, Aitzaz confronted the stranger, hoping to stop him from blowing up the school. The confrontation led to a scuffle, which led to the suicide bomber panicking, which then led to the pre-mature detonation of the bomb.

            Both Aitzaz and the bomber died at the scene. Although the blast injured two people, the school’s nearly 2,000 students were spared.

            My cousin sacrificed his life saving his school and hundreds of students and school fellows,” his cousin Mudassar Hassan Bangish said.

            “The suicide bomber wanted to destroy the school and school students. It was my cousin who stopped him from this…destruction.”

            Aitzaz’s family is devasted by the news but are also proud of Aitzaz’s actions.

            “My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children,” Mujahid Ali, Aitzaz’s father told reporters.

            Meanwhile, Pakistanis everywhere are urging the government to give Aitzaz some kind of award to recognize his bravery. Move over Malala – there’s a new Pakistani teenage hero!


            Malala Book Banned in Pakistani Schools

            I am Malala

            Teenage education activist Malala Yousafzai’s book has been banned from private schools across Pakistan for containing anti-Islamic and anti-Pakistani content.

            Malala, who rose to international fame after the Taliban shot her in the head for promoting girls’ education, released a memoir in October, entitled I Am Malala. While the teenager may have become an international hero for opposing the Taliban, the private school authority in Pakistan thinks she is a “tool of the West.”

            Adeeb Javedani, president of the All Pakistan Private Schools Management Association, said the book will be banned in all 40,000 of its affiliated schools because it represents the West, not Pakistan. He also called on the government to bar it from school curriculums.

            Kashif Mirza, the chairman of the All Pakistan Private Schools Federation, said his group had also banned the book because it didn’t show enough respect for Islam and it spoke favourably of author Salman Rushdie.

            Malala “was a role model for children, but this book has made her controversial,” Mirza said. “Through this book, she became a tool in the hands of the Western powers.”

            Conspiracy theories surrounding Malala, like the idea her shooting was staged to create a hero for the West, reflect the level of influence right-wing Taliban-lovers have in Pakistan – as well as the lack of education in the country体彩手机在线怎么下载. If only there was a book promoting education…

            Or maybe private schools are just afraid that if they don’t ban the book, they will become targets for the Pakistani Taliban – whose number one enemy is apparently a 16-year-old girl.


            Pakistani Taliban Are Open For Talks… And Other News

            Pakistani Taliban Talks

            While House Republicans and Democrats are refusing to speak to one another, the Pakistani Taliban has signalled that they are open to “serious talks” with the government.

            Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud said he would continue to target “America and its friends” but also wishes to engage in peace talks with the Pakistani government. At least they’re being honest! Hakimullah Mehsud denied carrying out recent deadly attacks in public places saying “we consider the safety of Muslims, of scholars, of mosques and madrassas as our sacred duty. As for explosions which cause damage to the life and property of Muslims, we have denied any link the past, we deny any link today.” Well, there goes the honesty…

            Morsi on TrialWhile the violence in Egypt continues, a trial date has been set for the man who started it all (not really): Mohamed Morsi. The ousted former president will go on trial starting on November 4 for committing and inciting violence after the military kicked him out of office in July. Fourteen other members of the Muslim Brotherhood movement will be along for the ride too. Meanwhile, the Brotherhood is still calling for Morsi’s reinstatement and the military government’s ban on all Muslim Brotherhood related activities hasn’t seemed to quell the protests. In fact, it may have made them worse…. But Morsi shouldn’t worry too much. After all, ex-president Hosni Mubarak spent less than two years in jail serving out his “life sentence” for his role in killing protesters. Morsi should be out in no time! CNN

            Pakistani Earthquake Kills Hundreds But Creates New Island… And Other News

            Pakistan EarthQuake

            Powerful earthquake packs a punch in Pakistan.

            Hundreds are dead and hundreds more injured in Pakistan’s remote southwest province of Balochistan after a 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck on Tuesday. The killer quake flattened entire villages and was so strong that it was felt as far away as Delhi and Dubai. But on the bright side, Pakistan got a new island out of it. After the earthquake struck, an island, about 200m long and 100m wide, appeared the coast near the port of Gwadar. But don’t try to visit the island yet – it’s still emitting some pretty heavy gas.

            Pakistani Actress Burned with Acid

            Bushra Acid Attack

            More troubling news out of Pakistan this weekend: Bushra Waiz, a young Pakistani actress, was left in critical condition after being attacked with acid while she slept at her family’s 体彩手机在线怎么下载.

            The 18-year-old actress, also known as Shazia Aziz, was sleeping on Friday night when a man climbed a wall, entered the family 体彩手机在线怎么下载, and threw acid on her face. Bushra Waiz suffered burns on the right side of her face as well as her right leg, arm and eye. In total, about 33 percent of her face/body are severely burned but she is now in a “relatively stable” condition.

            According to Bushra Waiz’s brother, Akhtar Waiz, the culprit was a TV producer named Shaukat Khan who wanted Waiz to marry him. According to Shaukat barged into the 体彩手机在线怎么下载 around 3 a.m. and proposed to Waiz. When she refused, he threw acid into her face and fled the 体彩手机在线怎么下载, leaving the empty acid container behind. Someone doesn’t take rejection well…

            The pair were also reportedly in a disputer over wages. Bushra was hired by Shaukat Khan to act in his stage dramas but then refused to pay her for her work. Sounds like he was pretty sh*tty husband material even before the acid attack.

            Acid attacks are quite common in Pakistan – there were in 2012 in the country体彩手机在线怎么下载. So I guess “acid thrown in face” isn’t really news in Pakistan, just your typical Monday. At least the women will get more use out of their niqabs. Maybe that was the plan all along…



            Current Event Cat of the Day: Nanga Parbat

            Current Event Cat - Pakistani Militants nanga Parbat

            Pakistani gunmen killed 10 foreign tourists in a shooting spree on one of the world’s highest peaks, Nanga Parbat – also known as Killer Mountain.

            Around 15 gunmen attacked the camp at around 11 p.m. on Saturday after abducting two local guides. The armed militants entered the base camp of Nanga Parbat in northern Pakistan disguised as policemen and opened fire on the tourists. Some tourists managed to flee but those who didn’t were shot dead. The attackers also beat up the Pakistanis who were accompanying the tourists, took their money and phones and tied them up.

            The dead foreigners included three Ukrainians, two Slovakians, two Chinese, one Lithuanian, one Nepalese and one… American!!

            The Pakistani Taliban has already claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was retaliation for a recent U.S. drone strike that killed the Taliban’s deputy leader, Waliur Rehman, on May 29.

            “Our attacks on foreigners will continue to protest over drone strikes,” a spokesman for the militant group said, “By killing foreigners, we wanted to give a message to the world to play their role in bringing an end to the drone attacks.”

            Pakistan’s mountainous north was considered relatively safe… until now. And Nanga Parbat was one of the main attractions in the country体彩手机在线怎么下载… until now. Long story short, the shootings aren’t great news for Pakistan’s struggling tourism industry. However, the tourists in question probably should have clued in after seeing the “Killer Mountain” sign. That and the large number of Islamic militant groups roaming the area.

            Pakistani Taliban Hire New #2… And Other News

            Must Find New #2

            After a US drone in North Waziristan killed former Pakistani Taliban #2, Wali-ur-Rehman, the terror organization must choose a new #2.

            And they already have – out with the old #2 and in with the new #2! Pakistani Taliban militants have chosen Khan Said as their new deputy commander. The position of #2 is a tough one to fill, especially since it’s always the #2 who gets killed in drone strikes – never the #1! But Khan Said has a great resume! It includes (but is not limited to) acting as deputy to Rehman, helping plan a 2011 attack on a Pakistani naval base, and freeing nearly 400 militant inmates in a jailbreak last year. The decision to hire him was unanimous. “There was absolute consensus over Khan Said,” one Pakistani Taliban member said. But… can he
