Paris attacks RAW footage form the streets

Video - France: Hollande declares state of emergency in light of Paris attacks

Over 140 killed as Paris rocked by coordinated shootings, explosions

A series of apparently coordinated attacks have rocked central Paris, resulting in at least 140 deaths. Aside from several separate shootings, police also confirmed explosions near a Paris stadium, and a now resolved hostage situation.
At least six separate violent incidents have taken place in Paris on Friday night, including several shootings and explosions. The French station BFM TV claim the death toll could be in excess of 60 people.
Gunfire near a restaurant in the vicinity of Paris’ Place de la Republique has killed at least 11 and injured at least seven people, according to BFM TV and police sources. People in the vicinity reported seeing several bodies lying on the ground.
The attack happened at the restaurant's terrace, according to France 24 reporter at the site of the first shooting. Dozens of shots were fired, according to witnesses who described the scene as a “nightmare”, the Liberation newspaper reports.
A second shooting took place several minutes later near Bataclan, a theatre at the 50 Boulevard Voltaire in the 11th department of Paris. At least 15 people are believed to be dead in this attack.
Dozens of people were taken hostage at the concert hall, with the terrorists shooting indiscriminately, local media reported.
Paris police eventually stormed the building, killing at least three terrorists. However, according to reports, the death toll from the hostage situation might be as high as 100 people.
In what appears to be a separate incident, two or three explosions were reported near the Stade de France stadium in St. Denis. Police have cordoned off the area and have evacuated the stadium, according to the publication. 
At least 3 people were killed by the blasts, two of which police have confirmed were suicide bombings.
The stadium was hosting a football friendly match between France and Germany, which was attended by the French President Francois Hollande. The President was rushed out of the stadium and is personally dealing with the unfolding emergency situation, officials told France 24.
Amid the “unprecedented terrorist attacks” that have resulted in dozens of deaths, French President Francois Hollande has declared a state of emergency and announced that France will close its borders.

Scene of Deadly Attacks in Paris

Obama: Paris attacks 'an outrageous attempt'


Famous Journalist of Pakistan Nazeer Lagahri while answering questions related to Punjab government and Sharif Brothers’ links with banned terrorist groups and slow speed of NAP, in a program named ‘Abb Tak with Masood Raza’ telecasted from Channel 24, said “Punjab Government has open relations with banned terrorist groups due to which it is not willing to take any action against these terrorists or target them with the NAP”. He said “This is now an open secret that there are centers and networks of banned terrorist groups (LeJ, Sipah e Sahaba and others) in entire Punjab, especially in Southern Punjab and Punjab government has given them complete freedom in Punjab.
While answering another question, Nazeer Lagahri said “the speed of NAP has slowed down due to government’s schemes. Sharif brothers had also taken support of these very banned terrorist groups to succeed in elections, in the past as well. In such situation, how Punjab government could take action against the forces that has helped it to acquire power”.
He also raised question upon the NAP and said “The groups that have been banned by the UN, have cases registered against them in various countries of the world and have openly accepted the responsibility for killing hundreds and thousands of Pakistanis, are still taking part in Local Bodies Elections in entire Punjab but no action has been taken against them”.
“Pakistan Muslim League-N, especially Sharif brothers’ relations with these terrorist groups are not hidden from anyone”, he added.

Pakistan - Government only accountable to Parliament, masses: Asfandyar

 As the military called for greater civilian cooperation to fight terrorism in the country, Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Ali Khan has said no institution is allowed to pass judgments relating to the performance of other institutions.
While addressing his party workers in Charsadda on Friday, the ANP chief, without naming any institution, said no entity other than Parliament could hold the government accountable, which was answerable to the masses.
Top military commanders this week had expressed their concern over the lack of ‘governance initiatives’ to complement counter-terrorism operations.
The ANP leader said previously western powers used to raise ‘do more’ slogans but now the same voices were being raised within the country.
Asfandyar pointed out that all institutions should work within their constitutionally-defined roles, and refrain from interfering in the domain of others.
He also criticised the PTI-led Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for suppressing their opponents under the garb of accountability.
“If Imran Khan is sincere in his efforts against corruption, he must take action against those corrupt politicians within his party ranks,” he added.

The Jews of Pakistan

By Zeeba T Hashmi

Despite the similarities between Muslims and Jews in religion and lifestyle, the hatred created between them has always been politically motivated.
With a general lack of recognition of religious identities, the minorities here suffer unchecked verbal and violent onslaught by the puritanical clergy. Such is the story of the Jews in Pakistan, a majority of whom had to go into exile or change their names to Muslim nomenclatures so as to protect themselves from widespread anti-Semitic sentiments here. We cannot ignore the fact that before the 1970s there generally were no anti-Semitic feelings towards the Jews of Pakistan. But thanks to Islamisation policies and the fervour against the Jews in the aftermath of the Israeli military conflict with Palestine in 1967, the state turned a blind eye to the elements that spearheaded campaigns against the Jewish population here. It was a time when the state could have intercepted the radicals’ aggressive anti-Semitism by separating political leanings from the Jewish identity.

What we know a little of the Jewish presence in Pakistan is through their synagogues, cemeteries and prayer halls present in Karachi, Peshawar, Lahore and Quetta. Before partition, Jews also had a presence in Hyderabad, Larkana, Mirpurkhas and Sukkur, and along the coastline from Goa to Gwader. They were represented by the All India Israeli League based in Karachi. There is also some documented proof and narrations of Jewish diasporas based in Israel and other countries that relate to the Jews who had come from the Bani Israel community in India, along with the arrival of Afghan Jews in a pre-partitioned India. At the time of partition of India, it is believed that there were about 1,000-1,500 Jews living in Pakistan but they left in a majority after Israel was created, with an exodus occurring in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Jews of Pakistan had been directly impacted by Pakistan’s foreign policy concerning its relations with the newly formed state of Israel in 1947. Initially, it was believed that since both the states of Pakistan and Israel had similarities in their inception, Pakistan would form relations with Israel. In this regard, the late Sir Zafarullah Khan, Pakistan’s first foreign minister, was approached by Chaim Weizmann, who later became the first president of the state of Israel, with the intention to seek an alliance. However, diplomatic relations could not be established after Zafarullah Khan cancelled his plan to meet him later in 1948. It created an anxious time for the Jews here who had recently suffered at the hands of religious zealots who ransacked their synagogues during migration riots. Pakistan could never ease ties with Israel since then, even though a few politicians had shown an inclination towards this. In 2012, former President Pervez Musharraf, in an interview with the Israeli press, stressed on the need to formalise ties with the state of Israel. However, the right wing and religious parties remained vehemently opposed to the idea.

Rachel Joseph, the last caretaker of the Jewish synagogue in Karachi, relates that there are about 10 Jewish families that are still living in the country while some unconfirmed reports state that there may be about 70 families living in the city. As per the voters’ list of 2013, there were about 809 Jewish registered voters who remain unrepresented. It is also believed that many Jews have taken up the Parsi faith (Zoroastrian) as their identity to avoid societal backlash.

A Jewish welfare body that goes by the name of Bani Israeli Trust shows signs of active participation in the affairs of the Jews here. In March last year, the trust filed a petition in the Sindh High Court to retrieve the land of its Shalom Megan Synagogue, which had been razed by General Ziaul Haq’s administration to make way for a shopping mall without taking due consideration of the need to preserve the cultural heritage that Karachi faintly represents today.

Today, the negative sentiments against Jews have been deeply engraved in society over the religious assumption of distrusting Jews as a whole. There are some Muslim scholars who believe that the particular Quranic verse stating that Jews and Christians are not to be trusted should be understood in the time frame when Jews and Christians were conspiring against the Prophet (PBUH) during the holy wars. The ensuing problem is that clerics in general have fixed their minds over the issue and remain constrained to the literal value of the Holy Quran, hence completely ignoring the historical and political perspectives in which the words of God were revealed. It is indeed verse 60:8 — Allah will bring love between the believers and those who are at enmity with them at present — that most clerics here conveniently ignore. To base the religion of Islam as the platform for peace, it is the responsibility of progressive and liberal scholars here to advocate respect for people of all religions. There is no other way than to convince people on religious terms to undo years of hard-line indoctrinations.

Despite the similarities between Muslims and Jews in religion and lifestyle, the hatred created between them has always been politically motivated. This is a retrogressive trend for society as negative attitudes hamper the economic, cultural and societal development that Pakistan, with minorities leaving the country at a rapid pace, cannot afford. The political views of the Jews are not the same the world over, hence it is wrong to jump to generalisations about them. Religious diversity is indeed important for Pakistan to leave an impact in the world and to earn respect through secular values, not just on the state level but also at the societal level. In order to achieve harmony, the state has the responsibility to propagate a sense of ownership and respect for all its citizens irrespective of their identities and religion. The Jewish citizens of Pakistan need their recognition and their dignity restored. A Jew should not be held responsible for what Israel adopts as its aggressive policies against Palestine. Unless we accept and appreciate the Jews in our own home country, we do not have any moral ground to stand up against the political and social apartheid of Arab Muslims endorsed by the Israeli state.

Pakistan - #PPP criticises 'Punjab centric' CPEC projects

Opposition Leader in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah has written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and apprised him over reservations on the alleged change in the route of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

In the letter, Shah said that Sindh was being deliberately neglected in the CPEC project which will increase anger among other provinces against Punjab. He said that the eastern route under the CPEC was being given priority while the western route which was shorter was being ignored.

He said that Sindh contributes 60 percent of Pakistan’s revenue, which also includes major gas reservoirs. Therefore neglecting this province was unfair, he said. Shah termed CPEC a once in a lifetime opportunity for Pakistan and said that the entire country should equally benefit from the billion-dollar project.

He asked the prime minister to adhere to the decisions reached at an all party conference (APC) held over the project in May this year. He also objected on the preference given to the construction of eastern route for the project ignoring the short and better western route.

He demanded of the government to revisit its policies and priorities regarding execution of CPEC and other development projects in order to keep the federation intact. He said that the objective could only be achieved by taking all the federating units into confidence and ratifying their reservations.

On the other hand, the opposition has walked out in the Senate against what it termed the irresponsible attitude of the government. They had expected an answer from the government regarding their reservations. They said that the promises made by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif were not being fulfilled.

Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party leader Usman Khan Kakar pointed out that the government could not announce even single project on the western route of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Pakistan army violating human rights in Sindh: US based foundation

The Pakistani army is indulging in gross violation of human rights in the country's Sindh province, US-based Sindhi Foundation has told President Barack Obama ahead of the Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif's visit to the US.
In a letter to President Obama, the foundation expressed "serious concerns" about the human rights violations committees by Pakistan army and its subsidiary agencies, in action against rise of religious extremism and providing continued support to extremist terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba headed by Hafez Saeed to expand their network in Sindh province of Pakistan.
"Pakistan's military is continuing to play its double standard in its war against terror with international coalition partners especially the US," the Sindhi Foundation said in its letter to Obama.
"They are out to settle scores with its Sindhi political dissidents and nationalist activists who are vehemently opposed to Pakistan army's hobnobbing and patronage of the Jihadi extremist groups," the letter said.
The foundation in its letter appealed the US President to ask his administration officials to raise the issue of human rights violation by Pakistan army in Sindh when the army chief visits the US.
General Raheel Sharif is scheduled to meet top defense leaders of the US next week. He is also scheduled to travel to Florida for meeting the leadership of the US Central Command.
"I would like you to pre-condition all continues non-humanitarian aid provided by United States to the improvement of the human rights situation and crackdown against Hafeez Saeed terrorist network," said Sufi Munawar Laghari, executive director of the foundation.

The India-Pakistan Confrontation. The Dangers of Nuclear Conflict in South Asia?

The Pakistani military strategists rely on their nuclear arsenal as a main counter-measure against a possible Indian aggression.
On October 19, Foreign Secretary of Pakistan Aizaz Chaudhry officially confirmed that Islamabad has plans to use low-yield nuclear weapons to impede advancing Indian troops in case of a military conflict. The Pkiastan’s attitude is a response to a new Indian military doctrine, named “Cold Start”. New Delhi denies the existence of Cold Start as a concept, attributing the terminology to off-the-cuff remarks by Indian officers. Nonetheless, India has been implementing a strategy that has greatly alarmed Pakistan, driving Islamabad to invest in tactical nuclear weapons and alter its own nuclear posture.
Indeed, it’s nothing new in a new Indian military doctrine. New Delhi started to develop it after the conflict between countries in 2011. After the December 13, 2001 attack on the Indian parliament building in New Delhi by suspected Kashmiri militants, India launched Operation Parakram which failed. It took India’s strike corps nearly three weeks to reach the Pakistani border, by which time Pakistan had effectively mobilized its own defenses. The very same time, international pressure on India became acute and India was pushed to abandon the plans of intervention.
Subsequently, the Indian military has adopted a far more proactive strategy relying on immediate offensive operations against Pakistan. The offensive will be spearheaded by eight cohesive operational maneuver groups with significant artillery and immediately air support. They are deployed close to the Pakistani border at a higher level of readiness and able to launch operations within 96 hours. The strategy aims to achieve shallow territorial penetrations in Pakistan — not exceeding 80 kilometers. If this occurs, Islamabad will be in a complicated situation to use nuclear weapons at own territory amid the knowledge that Indian battle groups would not aim to advance deeper into Pakistan.
Islamabad is aware of the widening gap in conventional military capabilities between itself and India and has taken an asymmetric approach to the new threat, building up and relying on an arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons, lower yield nuclear weapons designed for direct use on the battlefield against enemy forces. Pakistan is calculating that tactical nuclear weapons would essentially counter India’s conventional military superiority. Although it is a nuclear power, India does not operate or plan to develop tactical nuclear weapons. So, Pakistan will have an advance. In turn, this situation is conducting additional risks of a wider escalation into a strategic nuclear exchange that might include non-military targets such as cities.
Thus, India has adopted a quick-launch posture which will be hardly de-escalated by international diplomacy’s measures. It won’t be enough time for this. In turn, the Pakistani defense and deterrence capabilities are grounded on a usage of the tactical nuclear weapons.
This is raising the possibility of a full-scale nuclear war in South Asia in case of a potential conflict between Pakistan and India. Furthermore, India’s rapid response doctrine can be triggered by a terrorist attack as, for instance, the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s 2008 Mumbai attacks.
Considering the fact that India and Pakistan actively use militant groups against each other, any terror attack could conduct a full-scale conflict. Separately, Saudi Arabia is financing a major part of the Pakistani nuclear program. The Saudi authorities likely consider the Pakistani asymmetric strategy as a useful approach for themselves. Considering a low combat potential of the Saudi military forces, tactical nuclear weapons could become the only security guarantee for the current regime in Riyadh. At a later stage, the nuclear cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan will probably lead to the Riyadh’s attempt to become a nuclear state without any additional exploration in the sphere.

Risks in Pakistan’s tactical nuclear weapons policy

By Ian Armstrong

Recent clarifications in Pakistani nuclear policy confirmed speculations that Islamabad has an alarmingly low threshold for tactical nuclear weapon deployment. Here are the geopolitical risks that emerge from Pakistan’s now official position.
Since Pakistan first began testing tactical nuclear weapons in 2011, there have been long-standingambiguities regarding the threshold at which Pakistan is willing to deploy its developing tactical arsenal.
While Islamabad has maintained a veil of mystery over most aspects of its nuclear program, former members of Pakistan’s foreign service have asserted that these smaller nuclear weapons would be utilized in the event of a conventional Indian military operation into Pakistani territory.
This assertion — previously amounting to only informed speculation — has now been confirmed as Pakistan’s formal stance. Foreshadowing what would become an underwhelming U.S. diplomatic venture in the final stretch of October, Pakistani Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhary stated that Pakistan would launch “low-yield nuclear weapons” if India staged an attack with conventional forces.
With this official tactical nuclear strategy in place, numerous and significant geopolitical risks surrounding Pakistan have now matured into much more concrete threats, bringing instability to South Asia in a multitude of degrees.
Increased Likelihood of Nuclear Escalation
Pakistan’s intent on utilizing tactical nuclear weapons against invading Indian forces is a strategy based on the logic of quickly defeating such incursions without setting off a strategic nuclear war. In reality, however, Islamabad’s declaration ultimately increases the odds that a full-scale nuclear war will develop.
This fact stems from a handful of reasons. On one hand, Pakistan’s assumption that the use of tactical nuclear weapons against Indian invaders is cleverly below the Indian nuclear threshold may well be erroneous.
Source: Stratfor
India has avoided developing a tactical nuclear arsenal of its own, instead relying on the deterrence ability provided by significantly more powerful strategic nuclear weapons. While this resistance to arsenal diversification is welcomed in terms of overall nonproliferation goals, it also suggests a much higher reality of risk from the India-Pakistan perspective.
India may in fact be under the impression that a strategic arsenal can still deter tactical nuclear use from Pakistan in spite of its declaration otherwise. It may also be unwilling to take full-scale nuclear escalation off the table in the event that Pakistan brings its tactical missiles to the battlefield. In both possibilities, the risk of nuclear war is greatly increased.
In addition, Pakistan’s introduction of tactical nuclear weapons significantly increases the sensitivity of the national nuclear trigger.
Given the short range logistics that tactical nuclear weapons entail as well as Pakistan’s intentions to utilize them in a prompt response, these smaller missiles are likely to be kept in much higher operational readiness than Pakistan’s strategic nuclear arsenal. By bringing tactical nuclear weapons into the calculus, Pakistan erodes many of the traditional barriers to nuclear deployment — undermining regional stability in the process.
Heightened Risks of Proliferation
The logistics of Pakistan’s tactical nuclear weapons also present risks involving nuclear proliferation — particularly in consideration of the various terrorist groups that operate in and around the country.
The low-yield nuclear weapons now in Pakistani hands present proliferation risks due to three particular logistical qualities. First, the smaller yield involved with tactical nuclear weapons means that Pakistan’s fissile material production — enough to produce roughly 20 strategic nuclear weapons a year — is channelled into a much greater number of devices.
With some Indian invasion plans reportedly involving the mobilization of 500,000 troops, Pakistan will be likely to dedicate a majority of its fissile material into these more numerous battlefield nuclear weapons. Greater numbers of nuclear weapons will subsequently bring greater risks of proliferation.
Second, the smaller size and more readily assembled nature of low-yield nuclear weapons also means that they will be easier to steal, conceal, and transport in comparison to the often much larger strategic variant. This enables nefarious non-state actors in Pakistan to feasibly plot the theft of a nuclear device in instances that would have previously not been possible due to sheer coordination difficulties.
Third, Pakistan will need to disperse its tactical nuclear weapons into the hands of a much greater number of military personnel if they are to be effective and in line with the vision set out by Secretary Chaudhary.
This increases the risk of proliferation by boosting the number of opportunities for non-state actors to attack Pakistani personnel and steal a functioning nuclear device. It also creates more possibilities for nuclear weapons to fall into the hands of corrupt Pakistani military officials willing to sell them to both terrorist groups and rogue states seeking to make nuclear acquisitions.
Looking ahead
No matter the angle taken, Pakistan’s willingness to bring tactical nuclear weapons to the India-Pakistan border and officially lower its nuclear threshold stands as a new source of instability in a region where economic growth is often restrained by geopolitical tension.
Looking towards the future, these risks appear to be compounded further by U.S.-Pakistan nuclear talksthat have reportedly stalled before even truly beginning. In the absence of such a deal, and the highly unlikely resolution of historical India-Pakistan tensions, the risks introduced by Pakistan’s tactical nuclear weapons policy will remain of deep global concern.

Pakistan needs a fresh disaster mitigation strategy

The rural economy takes a huge hit from frequent floods that can be better managed, says Ibrar ul Hassan Akhtar.
The history of disasters in South Asia reveals what is at stake in the face of climate change. Analyses of data for natural disasters — from the international disaster database EM-DAT, and covering hazards including droughts, epidemics, floods and landslides — shows that India is the country that has been most affected by these events since 1900, followed by Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. [1]
Every year, agricultural losses related to disaster cost Pakistan an average of US$15-20 million. This is due to poor governance, rural communities residing inside flood-prone areas, a lack of adaptive agricultural research and a resistance to changing what has become a ‘flood business’ — the government compensating those affected by floods and then resettling them back to the same flood-prone areas. This spells a need to rethink the country’s national framework for disaster management to protect its agricultural economy.
Rising disaster risk
According to EM-DAT data, the risk of natural disasters in Pakistan has increased over the past 100 years: four per cent (four events) of the global total of natural disasters occurred in the country during 1900-1947, rising to 64 per cent (79 events) during 1948-1990 and 32 per cent (40 events), in just the past 15 years, from 1991-2015.
Development policy has also changed, alongside these trends, over the past few decades. There is no doubt that Pakistan has shifted towards industries based on agricultural raw materials such as cotton ginning (separating fibres from seeds) or rice exports — much less agricultural growth is occurring among farming communities. The agro-industrial sector contributes around 21-25 per cent to national GDP (gross domestic product).
Wheat, cotton, sugar cane and rice are the crops of major economic importance for the country. Wheat is mainly grown in the Rabi growing season (October-May), which generally avoids the floods caused by monsoon rains that typically fall from June until September. It follows that extreme monsoon events and floods harm the national economy directly — through losses to life and of crops, livestock and houses — and indirectly, through the huge investments the government then needs to make to rehabilitate affected areas.
Cotton, sugar cane, rice and other high-value crops are mainly grown in Kharif season (July-September), when they are most at risk from the monsoon floods. Cotton contributes an average of around 1.5 per cent to GDP, with rice providing 0.7 per cent, sugar cane 0.6 per cent and maize 0.4 per cent. 

“Although geospatial technology can help to map and monitor areas at risk of disaster, this is not enough. The adoption of policies to reduce the impacts of flooding needs legislation.”

Ibrar ul Hassan Akhtar

The numbers on losses speak for themselves. During the flooding that took place in each of the past six years (2010-2015), Pakistan lost cumulatively more than an estimated 1,359,000 hectares of cotton, 372,000 hectares of sugar cane and around 1,391,000 hectares of rice. [2-4, unpublished data 2013-15]
No doubt, the 2010 floods were the worst in terms of geographical extent and damage to crops. But they also highlighted the lack of a preparedness infrastructure and mechanisms in Pakistan.
Life on the edge
Systems that rely on satellite technology, such as remote sensing and geographic information systems, have helped improve the country’s management of disasters, through near-real-time situation analysis, coverage of a wider area than could be monitored physically on the ground, and through spatial analysis. Crucially, this technology has also enabled us to understand how many of the country’s rural population live inside or near flood-prone areas and rely on smallholdings for their livelihood.
In the province of Punjab, 531,000 hectares (4.4 per cent) of agriculture is practised inside the floodplain; in Sindh province, the figure is 489,000 hectares (7.4 per cent).
During the monsoon season, rising rivers can easily flood crops up to five to ten kilometres around the river channel. Geospatial analyses have identified several districts in Punjab and Sindh with significant areas of crops growing inside floodplains during the July-September flood season.
But although geospatial technology can help to map and monitor areas at risk of disaster, this is not enough. The adoption of policies to reduce the impacts of flooding needs legislation — to permanently relocate families to safer zones, adopt flood-resilient cropping practices as a preventive measure, and promote research into cropping systems adapted to floods. In essence, it needs a revised disaster-management framework.
Such a framework would also reinforce the role of technology, by promoting tools that are more time-effective and reliable. For example, conventional approaches to data collection in Pakistan rely on centuries-old administrative systems; they need to be revamped with state-of-the-art geospatial technologies that can visualise and measure every inch of land surface in the country.
Capacity building is important too: those running management systems lack proper technical skills, adding further to improper planning and the tendency towards unscientific approaches to tackling natural disasters.
Pakistan needs a framework that promotes proper assessments of climate change, develops mitigation strategies, maps risk-prone areas by classifying multiple disasters and supports research for agricultural adaptations that can add resilience to cropping systems. The country’s bureaucratic approach to disaster management needs to turn into a technocratic one.
