Hubco tripped and karachi was blackout later news came from all corners of Pakistan that power outrage breakdown Terbela and Mangla Dam power plant tripped as well now what ever happened in technically that’s none our business but entire country spent night in the darkness.
Wapda statement on The News site was funny and weird they said they saved Electrical outrage from widespread? Dozens of cities first than districts later mentioned all provinces so what actually they saved from? Wide spread was it supposed to effect INDIA or CHINA?

This ad is in today’s newspapers Smart National Identity Card, I call this The Death Trap, first of all I didn’t get the logic of this at all, as 36 features which NADRA didn’t mention clearly made a short cut ” and a lot more to offer in the future.. ” but they surely mentioned ” Accidental insurance for 2 Years of PKR 100,000/- , from which 50,000/- would be spent on a decent Grave location since In Karachi it’s not even free people book there Graves and 50,000/- for funeral attenders. If this is SMART NIC than what was CNIC all about ( COMPUTERIZED NATIONAL IDENTITY CARD ) now tell you something, already CNIC failed and it was DRAMA because neither signature nor thumb prints are clear on it.
WHY CNIC failed and why this SNIC introduced, those of you are Pakistan already know the fuss of NADRA .
1. NADRA made billions from CNIC even today it cost 300/- Urgent which you will get 21 days later least.
2. NADRA doesn’t verify anything at all, its just another government department which works on JUST LIKE THAT 🙂
3. NADRA issued multiple CNIC to same person and even Afghanis and Bangali’s got the NADRA CNIC now PAKISTANI !
4. NADRA did hell of a corruption but wasn’t satisfied so kept the Renewal period
Which means from 18 to 60 you will require 5 to 6 times Renewal of this CNIC pay again and again FEES !
5. NADRA felt still we need to take the juice of the bones of the poor people of Pakistan so CAME UP WITH SMART Idea !
SMART CARD , Now what’s Smart about it.
1. If you haven’t paid a single utility bill, accounts may get ceased/ Halt RUN FOR YOUR LIFE !
2. FBR will make sure you are spending 5 Rs and giving 5 Rs in Taxes after all Islamabad is running on it.
3. where ever you Go, you will Face Machine to insert the card Check in Information wow NO PRIVACY !
4. Accidental Insurance is there for 2 years, You might be on the Hit List 100k is nothing .
5. Smartest way to fool people, make them pay again for Smart SNIC even this gets renewed ( STONE AGE )
6. United States doesn’t have this, But Pakistan is Ahead of all, OMG can’t believe it how smart are we.
7. SNIC chip is GPS in your pocket, Watch out for the DRONES above.
8. It’s a total trap, to create more confusion to make you accept Slavery
9. There is no benefit of it to the poor people of Pakistan but to those it matter they have DUAL Nationality not worried.
0. NADRA is ready to suck the blood of this nation once again with determination. There you go my friend.
Usually if you have Expired CNIC and you go even to get your phone SIM after viewing the Card ! you will hear Sorry It’s expired , What the Hell Card is expired Not me Wake up ! No they won’t help you out no matter Nuclear issue, restricted so what is all this actually about, we are living on USAIDS ( I call it AIDS ) anyone has a problem please comment below, NADRA is no different other corrupt departments of our beloved elected democratic government. So this time they want to make out the best for ever so you live a miserable life and they confirm your dead.
There are no facilities for Youth in it, There is nothing for Unemployed , There is nothing in it for the poor , it is all for middle class Hand to mouth time to suck their blood in the name of Smart Card ! Personally I am not in favor NOT AT ALL, I shouldn’t be paying for my Citizenship CNIC so that’s why I HAVE AN EXPIRED CNIC ! until they wont make it for free for all. I would go for CNIC but NEVER for this DEATH TRAP , DOGS BELT ! ( SNIC ) , Seriously Insanity and Pakistani Government has no limits when it comes to FOOL PEOPLE , we are being counted by others and what for we know exactly ! it is just when Government gives you charm they are about to take your legs up ! are you ready …….. this time.
Can we do something really SMART, Think Again…. before you fill up the form ….

In 2009, I started with Independent News Coverage Pakistan knowns as INCPak but over the time I felt that the issues of the common ordinary people are not just in Pakistan, so after discussing with my friends I finally decided to expend it on to Global International Level as Independent News Coverage International Network.
Recently I witnessed the injustice of Media, where there’s no place for the people, Media instead of resolving the issues was getting into the mess of corruption, this is what’s been happening not only in Pakistan, My friends from various countries are also sick and tired that their government is not giving proper attention, about the Issues / Problems / Conflicts which has devastated their lives, hatred and chaos this is all we get to see on the ( Media News Channels ) all thou today we have several other ways but no where unity is seen nor resolved issues. That’s where INCI Network will play its role, I am committed to show the actual causes and the reasons, which has messed the world today and together with efforts I have no doubt that we can resolve issues one by one, once you will be aware of them, For me Humanity and The Mankind is the first and the foremost keeping all the differences aside if we only understand what has caused we will definitely help each other out.
No one is in the favor of WAR but the Peace. I know these conflicts are happening because Mankind is still fighting for their cause but who is fueling them, for which several innocents die every day. Do you really this we should it let it happen or do something about it what so ever is possible in our capacity. I am one among you all, I am no different from any of you, My heart doesn’t agree on sit and watch, hear about it and ignore. I have taken the step and It is my humble request to you all to join me, let’s save, let’s give a hope to those who are hopeless, let’s be there those who need a hand. Let’s not be Blind and Deaf and accept the world as it is, when we know the power of unity is much greater than the evil around.
INCI Network is the Voice of the People. Share your Story with the world, be part of the Revolution, together we can conquer and Change the way things as they are with the help of Technology like Internet which has made communication so fast, we all are closer to each other, I personally salute Micheal Jackson for the song which not only changed me but still I am following the same path.
Here is it for you all.
MAN IN THE MIRROR
This is my story , This is what I dedicate my life to, Humanity, Surely who am I, to ignore reality and stay behind the curtain live in the fantasy, That’s why I have Started with Me ! .
Life is really too short to love and way too long to hate, Spread Love not Hate, Prefer Simplicity, so those who got nothing gets a chance to live like you and me. There is so much Chaos with-in us, but strange thing about PEACE is, it finds itself with-in it. When you do something good, your heart, mind and soul is satisfied, no matter where we belong, who ever we are, after all we are, we are part of this Human Race, living under the same sun. INCI Network is not the dream but it’s the reality which surely would give all a chance to share and help. Be the part of the Change.
Well this person has been in quite news for last few days as far as his role and controversy surrounding the CJ’s son. So in the bid to infrom our readers, I thought It would be appropriate to tell readers about the past of Malik Riaz and his empire Bahria town. BY the way, this article is in no way in the defense or favor of Malik Riaz and it’s just about informing the readers.
Malik Riaz is a name who has come up really able-bodied. Private enterprise has itself set up new meaning in the individuality of Malik Riaz Hussain. Even though born into a well-heeled family, his father’s contracting business collapsed, and he was forced at the age of 19 to start his career as a lowly clerk in Islamabad. He claim that Pakistan’s unsteadiness has not exaggerated sales at Bahria township. Malik Riaz say that he pursues the ‘Sultana Daaku’ approach. He earn from the moneyed and help the hub earnings group.
Some Facts About Malik Riaz and His Scheme Bahria Town
Pakistan’s biggest clandestine division flotilla of heavy soil moving tackle and the repair workshops.
If someone lines up the bricks that Bahria Town consume in a year they will go in the region of the globe 5.5 times.
The initial ever accommodation scheme in Pakistan with subversive stipulation of utilities and materials.
He is the 9th richest gentleman of Pakistan.
His possessions value $ 800 million.
Critics speak Riaz’s Bahria municipality territory has been fueled by close up tie to the services. Those links have allowed him to acquire land, in some cases returning a percentage to senior officers as developed plots.
Chief Executive of Bahria Town, Ali Riaz Malik submit his declaration regarding the Arsalan Iftikhar (CJ son) suo motto case in the Supreme Court of Pakistan that Bahria township was not at the back of any allegation not in favor of Arsalan and that the court’s measures were not intended at investigate the relationships of Bahria Town.

Supreme Court heading for Attorney General Ifran Qadir to get severe deed next to Malik Raiz, Salman Ahmed (Riaz’s son-in-law) and Arsalan Iftikhar according to the commandment.
On 20 April 2012, approx 18:40 pm, Flight 213 lost the contact with control tower, a Boeing 737-200 (AP-BKC), Bhoja Air Flight 213 carrying 127 people on a flight from Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport destined for Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport crashed near Chaklala killing all on board. Pakistani Defence Ministry officials believe that the plane crashed into a remote residential area. There were also bad weather conditions, with lightning and rain pouring at the time of landing. Eye-witness reports say that the aircraft was already on fire on its landing approach before it crashed.Initial reports suggest that as the pilots of Bhoja Air Flight B4-213 attempted to land amidst rain and strong winds, the unlucky aircraft might have flown into an unexpected wind shear that possibly smashed it on the ground below. The aircraft had been retired by Shaheen Air, due to not having sufficient Engine thrust power, which led this plane to be grounded just a month back the same plane acquired and placed in service by Bhoja Air in March 2012.
The CAA officials knew that the plane is grounded due to technical faults, The Engine of this Boeing 737-200 had Thrust Combustion Issue, Even than it was given the clearance which shows how irresponsible Civil Aviation Authority is, Control Tower lost the contact with the plane but, before that Air Traffic Controlcould have warned the pilot of the flight 213 not to
Bhoja Aircraft which crashed
land and divert the flight to Lahore, which would have saved the lives of 127 People, Air Traffic Control did not made any attempt knowing that the weather is not suitable to land since ATC received twice warning from Metrologies Department that Cloudy and Winds from North are not suitable for allowing Flights to Land or Take off, Metrologies Department, First gave the warning at 1500 PST and revised it at 1800 PST, Officials at Air Traffic Control were aware of the weather situation while Flight 213 was getting closer to make a final approach, ATC given the permission to land, which we all seen and know that Flight 213 Landing gear was down means wheels were out before eye witness said “ they saw flames of fire falling down
“ Mid Air Explosion “
Now lets go point to point and see how it happened.
1. Meteorologist Department Informed Air Traffic Control at 1500 PST, That weather is not sufficient to land or to take off.
( Weather Warning 1500 PST to ATC Islamabad AirPort )
2. Meteorologist Department revised again given the same weather warning at 1800 PST that weather is not suitable for next an hour but ATC did not follow instruction Some Flights Took off and Authorized to land ( Ignored the Weather Warning )
3. Flight 213 must have been informed about Weather Warning is not suitable to land, ATC Ignored the warning and given clearance, authorized Flight 213 to land, That’s when Pilot turned Landing Gear DOWN. “ Means Wheels Open “
4. Pilot of Flight 213 and Control Tower Ignored weather warning did not told the Pilot to divert the flight route toLahore.
5. Flight 213 ignored the warning because in various conditions Pilots are experienced to land. And beside it private airlines save the fuel charges by not diverting.
6. It is obvious that the clearance was given to land because The Landing Gear were Down, means Aircraft is hardly 250kmph or 170 knots and constantly slowing down to make proper landing approach.
7. Particularly this aircraft was grounded was almost 10 years by Shaheen Air due to Technical Fault ” Engine Thrust ” It is important to have balanced thrust engine power when landing specially in bad weather condition.
8. Since it was ignored the Technical Fault by CAA and ATC given the clearance, Flight 213 was coming in direction of RUNWAY
9. In Islamabad ” ATC is still using old system ” ILS300 ” Instrument Landing System 300 means Aircraft should be in range of 300 meters to be fully engaged, which this aircraft wasn’t, after being engaged with ILS300 Radars and Aircraft’s instruments do the final adjustments to make easier and safer approach.
0. At 1840 PST Flight 213 went down, eye witness said flame of the fireball came down “mid air explosion ” it would be stupidity to believe lighting struck, but it caught in easy term The Air Pocket, which made the plane STALL jammed and with in no time it lost the altitude, Pilot tried to increase thrust power ” because engine which I saw on the TV looked like had been through a hard time before being crashed. (Plane gets out of control only when it STALLS) due to very slow flaps 20, Rest the wind from the north played it’s part to bring it down, in seconds perhaps it would have been able to recover MAYBE if the thrust were fine but before this it is ATC Officials who authorized this plane to land.
Many People have this thing on their mind that Aircraft was Old, well tell you the truth It doesn’t matter, what matters is the maintenance which CAA checks approves it before it gets back for the service. There is no Emergency Setup forget the word Proper but no at all at theBenazirBhuttoInternationalAirport, Air Traffic Control officials should be held questionable as well as Civil Aviation Authorities for showing ignorance and irresponsibility.
One of the worst thing which I saw, a day after Shaheen Air’s 2 Aircrafts were almost repeating the same, one at the time of landing and other one at the time of fuel filling, President ordered to inspect all the private Airline’s Fleet. They been grounded for 4 days, eventually what happened, did they came up on Media and told people which one was defective? Why would they when The Corruption is working well in the Air too. Such a shame for Government for careless and keep repeating mistakes.
The History Of Bhoja Air.
On7 November 1993, Bhoja Air started operations on domestic routes betweenKarachi,LahoreandQuettawith a dry leased Boeing 737-200. It was registered inPakistanmaking Bhoja the first private airline in the country to operate a Western manufactured aircraft. Bhoja Air is a privately owned airline of the Bhoja Group of Companies with its head office at Shahrah–e-Liaquat,Karachiand corporate offices at KDA Scheme No 1. In 1996, it signed a deal with the handling agent group OGDENS with complete ground handling equipment atKarachi, capable of handling Boeing 747s. In the same year another sister company, Pakistan Aviators and Aviation located atAllamaIqbalInternationalAirport,Lahorewas purchased[by whom?], along with a hotel for passenger stop-overs.
On24 January 1998Bhoja Air commenced international flights fromKarachitoDubai. Later, Bhoja Air operated flights to the U.A.E from all major cities ofPakistan. However due to financial difficulties, Bhoja Air suspended its operations in 2000, although its airline licence issued by CAA – Pakistan remained valid and it maintained a fully functional headquarters office in Karachi and a flight ops and ramp office at Karachi Jinnah International.
M. Farouk Omar Bhoja is the non-executive Chairman of the airline and has a 5% shareholding in the entity; Zeeshan M. Karimi and Mazahir Hassan hold 7.5% each; and the remaining controlling interest is held by Arshad Jalil and his family.

Criteria by CAA which any Private airline maintain strictly, or else disqualified.
ACQUISITION OF AIRCRAFT
The operator shall have minimum three aircraft registered inPakistanto avoid inconvenience to the traveling public.
For operations withPakistanregistered aircraft, Airworthiness Directorate will issue the Certificate of Registration and Certificate of Airworthiness. ( DG CAA did not told Certificate of Airworthiness was issued again or not )
For maintenance and certification of aircraft, Director Airworthiness may be consulted for guidance on applicable requirements and procedures.
Wet lease aircraft induction from foreign countries would be allowed only in an extra-ordinary circumstances i.e. unforeseen surge in the market demand or sudden shortage of the operator’s capacity due accident / incident of aircraft. Wet lease permission of foreign registered aircraft shall not be more than 90 days unless satisfied the Director General CAA.
For foreign registered aircraft, a transfer agreement between the State of Registry and State of Operator is required to be concluded (before the commercial agreement between the lessor and lessee operator) under Article 83 (bis) of the Chicago Convention read with Civil Aviation Rule 368-A. The “Author and OPI” for the transfer agreement will be the Chief Legal Services, CAA.
Well I searched and I found The Chicago Convention on Civil Aviation – But Guess what There is no Rule 368-A in Article (bis)
Renewal of the License by CAA
RENEWAL OF RPT (AIRLINE) LICENCE
The License holder (Licensee) shall apply to the Director Air Transport, HQ CAA,Karachion the Company Letterhead application Form where applicable for renewal with appropriate Licence renewal fee as per AT FEE SCHEDULE at least 45 days before expiry of the license. In case of failure, the holder, in addition to the normal fee shall pay surcharge Rs 20,000/- per month or part thereof. In case of receipt of application for renewal after expiry of the license, no waiver or extension to the license shall be granted until approval of the Competent Authority i.e. Federal Government is being sought or waiver/extension granted by the DG CAA in the National and General Public interest.
On receipt of the application, Air Transport Directorate shall seek comments / no objection of the CAA specialist directorates i.e. Finance, Flight Standards and Airworthiness and if applicable / required of Legal directorate.
If there are any CAA outstanding (aeronautical / non – aeronautical) dues against the licencee/operator or any other objections, the licencee should clear the same before renewal of the license unless agreed by the Director General CAA or the Federal Government.
On receipt of the no objection of the concerned directorates, approval of the Director General shall be sought and the matter shall be referred to the Federal Government for approval.
On receipt of the approval of the Federal Government, the license shall be renewed by the Air Transport Directorate.
The question is now is it only Bhoja’s mistake or CAA too? Why ATC ignored the Weather Warning and We haven’t heard that any initiative taken against ATC Officials. If we really want to fix these issues, these questions needs to be answered without it no Aircraft no matter Bhoja or PIA is not safe in Pakistani Territory. There should be Independent Teams to Investigate the crash of Flight 213. There should be International Aviation Team of Inspection called to certify these aircrafts including PIA. People of this nation don’t trust Government and the way DG CAA gave the press statement showed me how responsible person he is. We must demand what is fair, we are not asking to bring US Marines but Independent International Team of Aviation Experts to Inspect so we know are we going to reach the other side safely or…….
There are always two ways, one legal and the other illegal but how to make illegal, legal that’s what experts in corruption does being in departments what I am pointing at is, Vehicles from Afghanistan entering in Pakistan without paying custom duty and getting Computerized Registration In Karachi , Punjab , KP , Balochistan and Islamabad the Capital. In Pakistan almost 80 percent of the people know that Vehicles like Trucks Chassis, Toyota Corollas, Parado Jeeps, Mitsubishi Pajero 5 door/3 Door, 22 seater Vans, and list goes on, they come from across the border, at less than half of the price.
If you have good links in Government Go see and book yourself which ever you want and it will be delivered at your doorstep. no matter where you live in Pakistan, this smuggling has a quite long history when they are delivered to you, they are not registered, so after which you contact people in Excise Department Motor Registration Wing where from Clerk till ETO ( Excise & Taxation Officer) is involved, even till Director and Minister. Thing is How do they do this it, in this Computer age. well simple, take a example of Karachi Registration number sequence for Cars is like ZZZ-999 “If the Series is ZAA – 000 than it will start from ZAA-000 till ZAA – 999 in which 1000 vehicles will be computerized registered. Now what happens, people at department, skip few numbers from series like ZAA-435 , ZAA-674 etc.. When any non custom paid vehicle comes to get registered, It is evaluated by Make Model and Year Since Babe is about to become legalized. They have prefix charges without Custom file so lets say you bought Toyota Corolla 2007 which cost you 400,000 Rupees from Afghan brder, Registration will take 250,000 or 300,000 Rupees. In which not only it will be on the record “Computer” but they might provide you the Import File Custom paid documentation, It depends.
Once it’s done Toyota Corolla is ready to rumble on the roads with Registration, less or very weak chances of being caught why, because this vehicle is not stolen in Pakistan and did not came through proper channel so Custom does not have any record of it. People do this business buy from there, get it registered and than sell it on the showroom, because it costs you around 750k or maybe 800k or 8 Lacs, but the actual value of this vehicle is more than 1.4 million 14 Lacs, at showroom it worth same as Legally imported Vehicle of same make and model year. Easily profit more than 6 lacs. thats just assumption when it comes to Jeeps It’s in Millions.
Excise Ministry , Director , AETO , ETO’s are aware of all this but none is honest and let it happen at times they close this underway when FIA and other departments keep an eye on them, later again they carry on with the flow, once the number is in Computer means, It’s Valid and can be sold without hesitation. This corruption is going on ever since Excise and Taxation Motor Wing came in shape. well Vehicles don’t make much as much Property does. hopefully next time ill share how corruption in Property Tax and Registration works here in Pakistan.
NOTE : I receive tons of email every month regarding how to register non custom paid vehicles, well let me clear over here, I have no links in Excise department I just informed you about what is happening so kindly next time you email me don’t request for How to get it registered.
Plus, Make sure when you buy any vehicle Amnesty scheme vehicles poured in Pakistan they are completely legal, previous government made it easier to turn black into white however, File with Amnesty Scheme has 7 documents papers and from PORT like KPT has 14 documents file and the prices are different of both don’t get fooled to pay for Amnesty scheme vehicle as port cleared.
