Following the ceremony, PM Nasirul Mulk received a guard of honour at PM House.

The newly appointed caretaker PM, while speaking to journalists after the ceremony, said that members of the Cabinet would be announced after discussion on the matter. He said he would like to keep the Cabinet small.

One of his first decisions was to change his principal secretary, Fawad Hasan Fawad, and replace him with Sohail Amir. Fawad has been rotated to DG Civil Services.

Mulk also said he would make sure that the elections will be held in a timely ,and transparent manner. “We will fulfil the duty we were entrusted with,” he promised.

The oath-taking ceremony was held hours after the third consecutive National Assembly completed its five-year constitutional term. It was only the second National Assembly to do so under civilian rule, with the 2002 assembly operating and disbanding under military dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf.

The three NAs elec­ted seven prime ministers in 16 years, indicating underlying weaknesses in the process, the institutions of the state and political parties in the country.

Former PM Abbasi spent a busy last day in office yesterday attending the NA’s farewell session, addressing a news conference highlighting his government’s achievements at his office and presiding over separate meetings of the Economic Coordination Committee and the Federal Cabinet.

During his address to the Assembly, Abbasi categorically stated that the PML-N would not tolerate even a day’s delay in the elections. He also reiterated his party’s demand of formation of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate all major political incidents which took place in the country since 1947 to identify those responsible for them.

His demand received a positive response immediately from Opposition Leader Syed Khursheed Shah, who expressed the hope that whoever formed the next government must do it on a priority basis.

Vijay Mallya and Lalit Modi will face expedition



NEW DELHI: India on Wednesday impressed upon the UK the need to expedite the process of extradition of Indian fugitives and economic offenders, which include former liquor baron Vijay Mallya and ex-IPL boss Lalit Modi. At the Indo-UK home affairs dialogue here, the Indian side is also reported to have sought the help of British authorities to locate diamantaire Nirav Modi .

“We have sought the help of the authorities in the UK in the extradition of our wanted persons. The process is on and everyone knows that it is because of our proactive action, that Mallya now has to fight his extradition case in a UK court, investing his time and money,” said an official privy to discussions during the two-hour long meeting here.

The third Indo-UK home affairs dialogue dwelt on 8 issues including counter-terrorism, terror financing, cybersecurity, women’s safety, organized crime and visa-related matters. While the Indian delegation was led by home secretary Rajiv Gauba, the UK team was led by Patsy Wilkinson.

During the talks, Gauba communicated India’s concern over activities of pro-Khalistan and Kashmiri separatist elements in the UK and urged it to maintain a vigil over such elements and take appropriate action including timely sharing of intelligence.

Last year, minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju had raised with the UK India’s request for extradition of 13 fugitives, including Mallya, Lalit Modi and cricket bookie Sanjiv Kapur.

Mallya, facing CBI and ED investigations, is accused of defrauding Indian banks of Rs 9,000 crore. He is currently contesting extradition proceedings initiated by India, in a UK court.

India had earlier moved ED’s request for extradition of Lalit Modi. However, Interpol had rejected the request for a red corner notice against him on the ground that no chargesheet had been filed against him in the Indian courts.

Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, who left India early this year, are wanted by authorities for allegedly duping Punjab National Bank of Rs 13,000 crore. TOI had earlier reported that information with officials of the Indian High Commission in the UK pointed to his being in the UK. A request to locate him is reported to have been made to the UK authorities on Wednesday.

Lift in ties as PM Modi, Joko Widodo fly kites in Jakarta

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived in Indonesia Tuesday night, was seen flying kites with Indonesian President Joko Widodo at a kite exhibition in Jakarta. They inaugurated the first joint kite exhibition themed on India’s epics Ramayana and Mahabharata at the Jakarta’s National Monument. The Ramayana theme has been designed by Indonesian organisers while the Mahabharata theme is designed by Indians.

“The leaders jointly unveiled a Kite Exhibition on the theme of Ramayana and Mahabharat,” Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement. “The Leaders welcomed the conclusion of the MoU between Layang-layang Museum Jakarta and Kite Museum of Ahmadabad and noted with appreciation the holding of the First Joint Kite Exhibition on the theme of Ramayana and Mahabharat at National Monument in Jakarta,” it said.

Modi met with Widodo at the Merdeka Palace — one of the presidential palaces in Indonesia’s Jakarta — and was accorded a red carpet welcome on his arrival. He also visited Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta.

The Prime Minister is on the first leg of his five-day three-nation tour to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. After holding extensive talks on a broad range of issues, PM Modi and Widodo agreed to upgrade their ties to Comprehensive Strategic Partnership as the two countries signed 15 agreements including one on defence cooperation. The agreement also included the cooperation in the field of defence, space, science and technology, railways and health.

Modi, who is on his first ever official visit to Indonesia, said both the countries have agreed to upgrade their ties to Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. In a joint press statement after the talks, he also said that India’s Act East Policy and the vision of SAGAR (Security and Growth for all in the Region) matches President Widodo’s Maritime Fulcrum Policy.

“India and Indonesia will double their efforts to take bilateral trade to USD 50 billion by 2025,” he said.

Modi and Widodo, during the meeting, highlighted potential areas of cooperation in marine, economy, and socio-culture as well as discussed regional and global issues.

Strongly condemning the recent terror strikes on three churches in Indonesia’s second-largest city Surabaya, PM Modi said India stands resolutely with Jakarta in the fight against terror.

Nasi-Ul-Mulk to be interim Prime Miniser of Pakistan


Pakistan opposition leader has made a plea to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to appoint an interim prime minister and four interim chief ministers to supervise the process for the next general elections due by mid-2018.

One of the staunch rivals of the ruling party and leader of Awami Muslim League Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad in a statement issued in Lahore on Sunday has made a request to the Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to appoint a neutral interim prime minister for the country and chief ministers for Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to ensure transparency before the next elections are held.

Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad who is also an ally of another opposition leader Imran Khan, the chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaaf (PTI), also said the establishment of an independent and powerful interim administration was necessary before the next elections.

Pakistan’s opposition leaders are fearing the installation of a pro-ruling party interim set-up before 90-days from election, a condition elaborated in the Constitution. Officially the elections are due by the end of June or July and a set interim set up must come by April if the elections are to be held on time.

Several other political opponents of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government have also called for setting up of an interim government to supervise and ensure fair and free elections in the country.

One of the leading opponents of present government, General(Rtd.)Pervez Musharraf has also made repeated calls for establishment of a caretaker government in Pakistan to meet the rising challenges.

A caretaker government is mandated to hold the general elections within three months or 90 days and then hand over affairs of the state to the elected government as those holding official or ministerial positions cannot take part in elections.

As per the Pakistani Constitution, “the purpose of the caretaker Cabinet in Pakistan is to create a conducive environment for genuine elections, ensuring the neutrality of the government to facilitate a smooth transfer of power from one elected government to another.”

The Constitution also says that as a non-partisan administration, the caretaker’s primary role is to exercise the routine functions of government. The experience of other countries with this institution shows that an efficient caretaker government requires a clear set of rules that define its mandate, function and neutrality.

According to media reports, the ruling party’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will resume consultations with leaders of parliamentary parties next week.

But according to a report published earlier in the daily Express Tribune “these contacts will only be customary and decision for caretaker prime minister and National Assembly will be taken after proper agreement with leader of the opposition so as to avoid confrontation with parliamentary committee and the Election Commission”.

Before the elections are announced the National Assembly would be dissolved but the Senate would remain intact. The ruling party is seriously worried about the role of newly elected Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani during the interim three months period.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Abbasi who is also a leader of the ruling PML-N government, has also expressed his serious reservations on election of new Senate chairman who would become an acting president of the country in the absence of PML-N- nominated current President Mamnoon Hussain.

Abbasi’s strong criticism of the Senate chairman has also drawn reactions from allied party leaders.

PML-N’s long-time ally, Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam leader and Senator Abdul Ghafoor Haidri who is now part of new alliance of Islamists on Sunday criticised the prime minister’s statement against election of Sadiq Sanjrani.

Senator Haidri, a deputy secretary-general of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA or United Action Union), in his statement said that the “prime minister should represent the nation and not one party” and claimed that “the way the PM has criticised the Senate chairman election, he himself would come under criticism”.

Trump dump Kim




Washington: US president Donald Trump has cancelled the planned 12 June summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, and cited “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent statement from North Korea.

In parallel, Trump is also telling Kim ‘do not hesitate to call me or write’ if the North Korean leader changes his mind regarding the summit.In that statement which Trump is referring to, the North Korean government referred to Vice President Mike Pence as a “political dummy” and said it is just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.

Trump says in his reply: “This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history”.

Trump says in a letter to Kim released Thursday by the White House that based on the statement, he felt it was “inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting”.

The US president says the North Koreans talk about their nuclear capabilities “but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.”

On the other side, North Korean media too stepped up their rhetorical attacks on South Korea and joint military exercises with the United States, warning Tuesday that a budding detente could be in danger.

State media unleashed three strongly worded commentaries slamming Seoul and Washington for the maneuvers and demanding Seoul take action against defectors it claimed were sending anti-North Korea propaganda leaflets across the border.

The official media had until recently taken a relatively subdued tone amid the North’s diplomatic overtures to its neighbors, including a summit with South Korea’s president last month and plans for leader Kim Jong-un to meet Trump in Singapore on 12 June.

That first changed last week, when it lashed out against the maneuvers, cut high-level contacts with Seoul and threatened to “reconsider” the Trump summit.

Hindus massacred by Rohingiyas : Amnesty International

Official website of Amnesty International


New Delhi: At a time when there is a dormant, underlying ongoing debate on the deportation of Rohingyas from the country, it has come to light that armed Rohingya groups massacred up to 99 Hindu women, men and children in the Rakhine state as recently as August 2017. A report by Amnesty International released on Tuesday has thrown light on the brutality with which the Rohingyas targetted and killed Hindu groups in the Rakhine state in Myanmar.

According to the Amnesty report, Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) attacked Hindu community in Ah Nauk Kha Maung Seik village in northern Maungdaw Township. On August 26, 2017, they killed six Hindus- a man, three children, and two women near Maungdaw town, near Myo Thu Gyi village.

According to the report, Kor Mor La, 25, one of the survivors told Amnesty, “The people who shot us were dressed in black. … I couldn’t see their faces, only their eyes. … They had long guns and swords. My husband was shot next to me. I was shot [in the chest]. After that, I was barely conscious.”

“[It was morning], I was praying at the time,” 22-year-old Bina Bala, one of eight women taken to Bangladesh by ARSA fighters told Amnesty. “They came to our house. Some were wearing black and others were wearing normal clothes … I recognized them [from the village].” According to her statement, the men confiscated their mobile phones and ordered them to stand in the courtyard. “[The men] held knives and long iron rods. They tied our hands behind our backs and blindfolded us. I asked what they were doing. One of them replied, ‘You and [ethnic] Rakhine are the same, you have a different religion, you can’t live here’. He spoke the [Rohingya] dialect. They asked what belongings we had, then they beat us. Eventually, I gave them my gold and money.”

Rika Dhar, 24, another survivor said- “We didn’t have a chance to run… I was blindfolded, and they tied my hands behind my back.” The report cites that “After blindfolding the Hindu villagers, ARSA fighters marched them to a creek area on the outskirts of the village. They then divided the men from the women and children, and brought the women into the forest.”

“The fighters killed, execution-style, 53 of the Hindus from Ah Nauk Kha Maung Seik, according to a list of the dead seen by Amnesty International that is consistent with testimony from survivors, other Kha Maung Seik residents, and Hindu community leaders. The victims include 20 men, 10 women, and 23 children, 14 of who were under the age of 8. Only 16 people – eight women and eight of their children – survived, their lives spared on the condition that the women agreed to “convert” from Hinduism to Islam and then marry people selected by ARSA fighters”- the report cites.

According to all eight survivors, the ARSA fighters took the men away and killed them. One of the survivors told the organisation that the Rohingya men “came back with blood on their swords, and blood on their hands. They told us that they had killed our husbands and the village headman.” “They slaughtered the men. We were told not to look at them … They had knives. They also had some spades and iron rods. … We hid in the shrubs there and were able to see a little. … My uncle, my father, my brother – they were all slaughtered. … After slaughtering the men, the women were also slaughtered.”

Citing two of the survivors – Aur Nika, around 18; and Formila the report says that as the fighters were leading them away, “they looked back and saw women being killed.” “I saw men holding the heads and hair [of the women] and others were holding knives. And then they cut their throats,” she said

Archbishop Philip Wilson to step down amid child abuse

Canberra: Australian Catholic Archbishop Philip Wilson, who is convicted of concealing child sexual abuse, said on Wednesday he will step down from his position on Friday and if need be take even further formal steps. The Archbishop of Adelaide was found guilty of covering up the crimes of a paedophile priest by a court on Tuesday. Wilson, the most senior Catholic in the world to be convicted of the offence, said he would step aside from his duties on Friday.

“It is appropriate that, in the light of some of… findings, I stand aside from my duties as Archbishop,” the BBC quoted Wilson’s statement as saying. “If at any point in time it becomes necessary or appropriate for me to take more formal steps, including by resigning as Archbishop, then I will do so.” He, however, did not indicate whether he would appeal the Newcastle court’s conviction, for which he faces a maximum two-year sentence.

On Tuesday, the court ruled that Wilson had known about a paedophile priest’s abuse of altar boys in the 1970s and failed to report the crimes to police. A magistrate found that Wilson, who was told about the abuse from young victims, dismissed their stories because of his desire to protect the Church’s reputation, the BBC said.

Child sexual abuse survivors in Australia have praised the verdict as a milestone in confirming the church’s legal accountability for such crimes.
