THE GAZA MASSACRE

Excellency,

I write to you as the Chairman of the second largest political party in Pakistan and on behalf of the Pakistani nation that has always been the lead nation in UN peacekeeping across the globe. We have been watching in shock and horror as the state of Israel has unleashed the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza during the Muslim Holy month of Ramazan and the UN has stood by as a silent spectator. The death toll of the Palestinians in Gaza has risen above 800 and the Israeli aggression continues. The residents of Gaza cannot seek escape as Egypt has kept its border with Gaza sealed. The Egyptian authorities have also prevented medical supplies from going in to Gaza and the UN has issued not a word of protest.

Yet the UN’s primary responsibility is to maintain global peace and to prevent aggression. From the UN Charter’s preamble to Article 2:4 to Chapter V11, the UN has a duty to ensure that people are not persecuted and states do not aggress against other states and territories. The Office of Secretary General has a critical role to play in the maintenance of international peace and prevention of state aggression and war. Chapter XV Article 99 defines the special responsibility the SG has in this regard and Article 100.1 also calls on the SG not to be influenced by any state in the carrying out of his functions.

The SG has to ensure the credibility of the UN in times of crises and war. At present the UN is undergoing a major challenge in terms of sustaining its institutional credibility. The massacre of innocent women, children, and elderly by the state of Israel cannot simply be ignored by the UN and by yourself as its SG. Nor can the Israeli aggression under false claims of “self defence” be ignored – especially by the UN and its SG. The UN Charter clearly circumscribes the notion of self-defence in Chapter VII and the ICJ Advisory Opinion on the Israeli Wall further countered the Israeli claims of self defence. How can the bombing of a hospital, a cemetery and a UN school be regarded as acts of self-defence?

As the world watches Israel losing all sense of humanity and breaking all international norms of behaviour, it is the UN to which it looks for intervention. After the UN World Summit of 2005 the international community asserted the principle of the Right to Protect as part of humanitarian intervention. The primary responsibility for enforcing this rests with the UN and its SG. I call on you to immediately exercise this responsibility to prevent a genocide of the Palestinians in Gaza.

As SG your actions will decide whether the UN is to remain credible as the harbinger of peace, the protector of the weak and the institution that ensures aggression remains unsuccessful around the globe. After all the UN was founded “to prevent future generations from the scourge of war”. It is up to you to ensure that the UN fulfills the mandate given to it by the comity of nations.

My country has always been one of the prime supporters of the UN in its peace and security functions. My Party has justice and human dignity as underlying principles. We cannot now allow the UN to lose all credibility because one powerful state is allowing Israel to conduct aggression against Gaza with impunity. We have a right to demand that you as the SG enforce the UN Charter and play an active role in halting Israeli military aggression against the Palestinian population of Gaza. As SG you must also demand and ensure Egypt open its border with Gaza to allow medical assistance and essential supplies to go into Gaza. You have a duty to ensure that the plan of genocide of the Palestinians by the Israeli state is thwarted. It is time for you as the UNSG to fulfill this critical duty.

Yours,

Imran Khan
Chairman PTI

I can’t – They Can’t

Standard

Can’t Watch This

When was the last time you watched something so scary, cringe-worthy, or unbelievably tacky — in a movie, on TV, or in real life — you had to cover your eyes?
================================

I can’t see feared children
I can’t see tears in their eyes
I can’t see their dead bodies
I can’t forget their pain

BUT

They can’t see their tears
They can’t feel them as their own children
They can’t stop killing them
They can’t stop bombing and harassment
They can’t stop WAR in Palestine.

PLEASE ALLAH HELP THEM NOW, PLEASE ALLAH BLESS US WITH PEACE AND LOVE.

FILL THEIR HEARTS WITH LOVE AND PEACE , AMEEN SUM AMEEN

Down the hill

Standard

Fictional Intruder

Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quidditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?

(Thanks for a great prompt suggestion, SunnyWilliams!)

====================

I went to Rabbit hole but could not find Alice,

I looked for Harry Potter , but the play ground was so silent

The river was floating , but couldn’t find Huck Finn..

I looked for them all around

I shouted,

I wandered ,

here and there ,

but

No use…

Where is Alice?

Where is Potter?

Where is Huck finn ???

Suddenly I saw a rabbit sadly looking down the hill…

I rushed to him

and I saw

Alice

Harry

Hunk

All crying and shouting for help

Help for children of GAZA, Palestine

Twinkly Twinkle little Star

Standard

So its summer here in Lahore, and the weather is getting hotter and hotter day after day. In Pakistan, people use to sleep in nights on their house’s roof in start of the summer’s , and I am sleeping on my house roof as well since two days. And in these two days I have experience a wonderful scene and a true beauty of nature.

Okay let me tell you in more detail. Yesterday, it was almost 4:00 A.M in the morning when suddenly I awaked and the first sight was Crescent moon and a bright twinkling star. First I couldn’t understand what it is , as I was half awake and half sleepy , and I was not even wearing my glasses, but just after few seconds I realized oh Its moon 😀 .. And it looks so beautiful. I felt so good and guess what? Yes I just started taking photographs.

This is the first sight after my mind awakes.

I took a little break for my Fajar Namaz (Morning Prayer), and then I again went to roof for some more clicks and it goes on and on until I Lost the bright star and it completely disappear or Its better to say I stop taking photographs when my eyes stop seeing the star but my heart was still feeling that star shining somewhere else, and I smile how these stars, moon and sun comes to me and you daily.

We see the same Moon, Sun and Stars.

We share the same Earth and Sky

We are same but …

Sad, we don’t realize this.

We Don’t Realize this.

We Don’t!

MAY ALLAH TAKE AWAY ALL THE HATER, AND GIVE US A POWER TO RESPECT AND TOLERATE THE DIFFERENCES IN OUR CULTURES, RELIGION AND THOUGHTS, BECAUSE WE ARE THE SAME SPECIE.

WE ARE HUMANS. WE ALL BREATH AND STRUGGLE FOR GOOD LIFE.

MAY ALLAH BLESS US ALL,

MAY ALLAH HELP US ALL,

IN FINDING THE RIGHT PATH OF LOVE AND PEACE. AMEEN

 

 

A SONG..

Standard

I want to share this song today before writing anything. Nusrat fatih Ali Khan (late) and Eddie Vedder.

FACE OF LOVE

Look in the eyes of the face of love
Look in her eyes, oh, there is peace
No, nothing dies within pure light

Only one hour of this pure love
To last a life of thirty years
Only one hour, so come and go

I ADMIRE THIS PERSON SO MUCH DUE TO HIS SUPER MUSIC AND PERSONALITY.

MAY ALLAH BLESS HIS SOUL AND HELP HIM IN LIFE HERE AFTER. AMEEN.
