Picture of Karakoram Highway 
Kashmir is no doubt amongst the most extraordinary scenic marvels on earth due to its impressive array of the highest mountain peaks from the Karakorum ranges to the majestic vistas of the Himalayas. Known for its lush green valleys and beautiful collection of floras, the state hosts many rivers including the mighty ancient Indus river, that is the livelihood of millions since many millennia, as the former Mughal emperor put it best: “If there is Paradise on earth, it is this, it is this..." But as luck may have it till this day the people of this heavenly state would not be able to fully reimburse themselves from the natural beauty offered by their own native land due to the bitter unfinished chapter of partition left by the British empire. The state of Jammu and Kashmir has only seen bloodshed for over the past seven decades, as both nations India and Pakistan have been on the brink of war ever since...
When I was young I used to hear a story of a beast called as Mum, which was supposedly present in mountains around Quetta. It used to live in a cave at Kohe Murdar. It was told that Mum was of some kind of mix breed. It’s face was woman like meanwhile remaining body of a lion. As per story the mum used to pick the random people especially males and then she kept them in her cave and made the captive incapable to walk by licking their feet. Later on she used to eat their flesh. According to version came to me one British Major killed the beast and his grave along with the beast is in Gora Kabristan Quetta.
When I visited my uncle in 1993 I requested him that I want to see the grave of Mum along with sculpture. When went to the grave yard the undertaker showed the sculpture of Mum locked in the room as it was stoned by people and was broken. An interesting thing which I still remember was a gunshot whole being depicted on the sculpture. The undertaker told that...
Pakistan’s MBT Modernization Program – A Step In The Right Direction
It was decided during the 70s to set up facilities for maintenance and overhaul, and rebuild of future weapon systems. Facilities like PAC Kamra, HIT Taxila (originally Heavy Rebuilt Factory) were envisaged during that era. The neighbor had an edge in the armor and numbers, and the induction of t-72M1 only made things more difficult. The military command was rightly worried and as the 125mm 2A46 main gun of t-72 comfortably outgunned anything in PA’s MBT arsenal (100mm and 105mm L7 guns) at the time.
The infamous trials of M1A1 in Tamewali region during 80s is no longer a secret. The M1A1 suffered reliability issues in extreme temperatures of Thar/ Cholistan desert. After the withdrawal of Soviet forces from Afghanistan and assassination of General Zia, the political scenario changed. By 1990, Pakistan suffered sanctions under Pressler amendment, and had no longer access to US weapons and defense...
How Pakistan could effectively cripple Indian’s air force with rocket artillery, and what is needed.Analysis| Long range multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS)
Written by: Philip the arab
Category cloud: Oped-research
This writing is my short opinion, and research based article for the Best Writer completion. I don't expect to win, and that was not my complete goal here I am just trying to give my opinion on a underutilized strategic weapon. This is my first real article here that I gave a good effort on so go easy on me please.
Long range multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) are somewhat underappreciated systems that can be used effectively in a suppressive role and are a much cheaper alternative than cruise missiles, yet allow much more payload delivered on target. Pakistan could theoretically use rocket artillery with ranges varying from 100 to 400km acquired from nations that are recent suppliers of Pakistan which produce these systems such as, Turkey and China. Assuming Pakistan could use its MLRS for offensive role such as how Americans...

Bio-warfare in contemporary times - what are the possibilities
Contestant : @Ace of Spades
The term bio weapon has been around since quite long time, with it's ancient mention in text that is 1500–1200 BC years old; mentioning intent of driving diseased person to the enemy land to cause infections and catastrophe. Recorded occurred incidents dates back to 400 BC, when schythian archers dipped their arrows in infected feces and decaying corpses before raining them on enemies. Romans used to contaminate their swords with dead animal internals before going to war, increasing the chances of infection in wounded enemies. Venomous snakes were tossed in to enemy ships in second Macedonian war during 190 B.C. 
The siege of port city Feodosia previously known as city of Kaffa is a well cited example by historians where bio weapon was used and brought black death plaque to mediterranean which swept Europe, Near East and North Africa in the midst of 14th...
Pakistan and On Going Challenges
Topic: Pakistan’s Faliure in Applied Science Domain
There was a time when people imagined the world and they rationalized it with stories of magic and conjurers. In addition to the evolution of society the people started to gather together to rationalize the world around humans. Also with the culture of awakening of mind , people started to observe the world around them and they started to study it with great interest. First there were philosophical studies and later on a branch emerged which focused on None Philosophical Approach for defining the world around us , by rationalization and meaning. They called it “Science” a study of world around us with experimentalism and proof of concept. Applied Science in simple terms the application of theory aspect and a practical application of scientific concept which is theorized. Pakistan has fallen behind the world considerably when it comes to Applied Science, not by choice...
It all began on December 31, 2019, when WHO’s country office in China received information about pneumonia cases caused by unknown virus in Hubei province. National authorities in China reported 44 similar cases in the next 3 days.
On January 07, 2020, Chinese authorities identified a new type of coronavirus (Novel Coronavirus - 2019-nCoV) and they were able to share the genetic sequence of this new virus by January 12, 2020.
By January 21, 2020, 282 confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV were identified worldwide of which 278 were tested positive only in China. By that time, the exposure of this virus in Chinese Hubei province was widespread due to lack of information in the initial days of this outbreak. Other countries however received ample information from Chinese authorities which were in continuous contact with WHO and keeping them informed about the progress. From that point onward, a remarkable journey of containing the virus and controlling its spread started by Chinese...
First and foremost; covid-19 is not a flu, with more than three folds mortality rate, with it effecting elder population more and with higher mortality; it should be taken seriously.
There is allot of discussion going on around covid-19, you guys are pretty much aware of the situation right now. Countries are shutting down; from travel restrictions to whole cities are being shutdown. The problem i am seeing in Pakistan is that our general public is oblivious; that's not certainly a bad thing, but the rulers are more clueless. And that's pretty messed up. Now this thread i am creating is not for repetition of the rhetoric. But for "Pakistan focused" self measures that you should and your families need to practice because the spread is inevitable unless government takes extreme measures, which they are not and will not take in current economy or unless Allah does some reham on this nation and summer makes this virus go away; for which we can't say for sure. Now to the self measures.....
Opinion | National Security | Emergency Management:
Disaster risk reduction and management have become key concepts in present-day development practices across the world. Globally and regionally, we are experiencing a constant increase in socioeconomic losses due to disasters.
Figure 1: Disaster Management Cycle
Figure 2: Pakistan's disaster management framework
Geological, ecological and climatic changes are persistently mounting disaster threats for the world community in general and developing nations. With Little or no warning, disasters and emergencies can happen. The local government’s ability to respond to these incidents can be quickly overwhelmed.
We have all had the misfortune to witness or be directly impacted by an emergency in our lives. It is in times such as this, be it the roadside accident or a major national emergency such as the October 2005 earthquake in Kashmir, Pakistan that we see the human nature truly shine.
It is in times of hardship, struggle and...
AI, Clinical Psychology
& Pakistan Defense
It has become near evident that AI is going to play its part in the future. Especially for a field like Defense, aspects like Machine Learning, Deep Learning are going to play a major part. These aspects are majorly going to be used in aggressive battlefield incidents where an effective attack plan or Geo-Position advantage will be the results of highly advanced mathematical calculations. But, within the realm of socio-military duty, especially considering the case of Pakistan, Should the future AI asset be univariate battlefield specified or multi-variate civil-military concerning. That is where the clinical Psychology starts to play.
In the last century, the evidence of the equality of opportunity reigning supreme over the equality of outcome has become a well-known fact. Equality of opportunity directly refers to a physical commodity that has reached the top of...
Much ink has been split to retrace the events leading up to and following Swift Retort (SR). So far, all such efforts portray SR as a knee jerk response to Indian aggression following the Pulwama attack. In this article, I would like to contextualize SR in the larger sequence of events. This will enable us to derive the full significance of PAF's swift retort to both the Indian barb and Pakistani lethargy.
The months, and not just days, leading up to SR saw an increasingly belligerent Indian military and air force. The bowing out of COAS General Raheel Sharif and ACM Sohail Aman brought a season change to Pakistan's outward projection of military might. The last test of any new Pakistani missile with strategic significance was of Ababeel in January 2017, shortly after Bajwa came into office. Indeed, the few months that elapsed between Bajwa's appointment and the Ababeel test do not provide any grounds for crediting Bajwa with a strategic vision. The entirety of Bajwa's legacy is...

Post Balakot Panic: India using Israeli guided missile against Kashmiri Civilians at LoC
By Farzana Shah
The month of February has not only carved its significance for Kashmiris living across the world as a month to expose Indian brutalities on them but also a warning month reminding the world of threats Indian aggression poses to world peace.
The world on Feb 27, 2019 had witnessed a war like situation between India & Pakistan when India tried to play another misadventure, only to be surprised by shooting down of her aircraft by Pakistani JF-17 Thunder.
Indian forces heavily shelled Pakistani side of Kashmir on the night between Feb 7 & 8.
The unarmed Kashmiris were subjected to target of Guided Missiles with Tandem warhead in violation of international laws.
Upon analysis the unexploded object fired by India into Pakistani Kashmir, turns out to be ( BGM-71 TOW) guided missile which they used for targeting civilian populated area.
It is important to know that Nato supplied...
In the recent times, this term political correctness has become quite controversial. In the western world; political correctness has become a point of contention in the political and cultural war between the conservatives/right wing and the liberals/left wing.
The critics of political correctness believe that political correctness restricts the discussion of social issues and is a form of censorship and in fact it is an attack on freedom of speech. If a social issue can not be discussed and it is considered a taboo then how can the solution be formed. They believe that political correctness is in fact a social evil.
In the Western world, the people's anger at the mainstream parties is increasing. The people increasingly believe those mainstream parties to be crooked and are also of the opinion that the majority's voice is systematically not being heard in their own countries. They view that their country is being controlled and destroyed by the elite, the...

Theory of Rationality... The Game Theory ... what a practical demonstration we just saw, US-Iran muk-muka.
It is once again validated!!!
No wonder it is part of Artificial Intelligence Alogrithm ... especially in forecasting scenarios ...in policy/foreign policy and Wargaming!
All ThreeAntagonists are back in The Prisoner's Dilema...back to the agreed Rules of The Game!
Since, 1979 The Game was agreed... as we saw in the FirstGreatAfghanWar.
Persia had its dedicated jihadi groups in Kabulistan...with full US support... as did US-Arab financed Pak trained Mujahideen.
It was all kosher back then with Israel providing weapons to 'Islamist Terrorists' without Star of David in order not to embarrass Zia ...
Mard e Momin ... Mard e Haq.. Zial ul Haq... Zia ul Haq... what a funny world that was...
However, Zia was an extremely RationalActor and played The Game with agreed Rules...
He was the best choice at that moment for PakState and the Rest of the InternationalActors. But...
