London (December 2013): A team of around two-dozen senior doctors and surgeons from the UK will travel to the remote areas of Azad Kashmir in March next year to treat poor children and families for free. The visit is being organized by a UK based welfare charity, working in Azad Kashmir for over 21 years, as part of its 1000 Smiles4Kashmir programme. At a seminar in the House of Lords, the project coordinator Dr Adeel Iqbal announced that the delegation would stay in Azad Kashmir for two weeks and will administer treatment to at least 160 patients with complex surgical conditions, besides carrying a large quantity of medicines from the UK.
The seminar was hosted by Lord Eric Avebury, who has had a long interest in Kashmir and Pakistan, Lord Qurban Hussain, Ishfaq Ahmed, Professor Alan Fenwick from Imperial College, Professor Elio Riboli from Global Health London, Professor Majeed, Chair of Primary Care, Dr BK Sinha, Dr Charles Viva (Head of Interplast UK), Dr Mark Smith (Consultant Anaesthetist at The Royal Brompton Hospital), Alison Stutt (Head of International Development, Barts andLondon Hospital) and Dr Athar Khatib, a world renowned Consultant Ophthalmologist.
Dr Adeel Iqbal, who was born in Britain but his parents hail from Mangla in Azad Kashmir, said the recruitment for the project in March 2014, is actively underway and nurses, doctors, surgeons, anesthetists, logisticians and volunteers are being recruited. He told The News: “This will be the start of the biggest ever medical delegation that will travel to Azad Kashmir. There is so much poverty in parts of Azad Kashmir that some patients find it hard to travel to the central hospital where we are conducting our operations; therefore we will send doctors into these areas to carry out pre-operatives assessments to help triage patients. We need to use our resources and connections to help people in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir by providing them with a healthy lifestyle.”
He went on: “These efforts are in need of amplification and assimilation in other parts of the region to not only treat patients but train local surgeons to deal with complex pathology natively. I am delighted that medical students and doctors from the region want to send their students to learn from these delegations.” Ishfaq Ahmed, who heads the charity and is overseeing the initiative, said he is pleased with the progress being made but more needs to be done to serve the needs of the people of Kashmir and Pakistan. “I will be flying out to the region soon to increase the campaign to register patients from Pakistan and Azad Kashmir.
We will also be launching the micro-credit project which will allow widowed women to start businesses to help sustain their families.” Consultant Surgeon Dr Charles Viva, who has already flown to the region twice in the last two years, commented that he has been very impressed with the staff at the Community Hospital in Jatlan, Mirpur, where he has been performing the operations. “I have seen extreme levels of sickness in the region. It’s unbelievable that while there is so much focus on the African countries and the plight of people there, it’s equally important the same level of attention should also be paid to regions like Pakistan where the level of diseases is only mounting by the day.” Lord Eric Avebury and Lord Qurban Hussain said they were impressed with this initiative, especially on such little overheads. They said the initiative needs support of anyone who cares for the medical needs of the poor families.

During the last 11 months, funds in excess of Rs8.56 million have been given to former prime ministers, ministers and advisers.” About Rs3 million, earmarked for the treatment of poor patients, were given to some “financially-sound PPP workers.” About Rs80 million were distributed among the voters and supporters of the party. Out of these, Rs10 million, though, were given to the needy families, affiliated with the ruling party. “Besides the unfair distribution of funds meant for medical treatment and dowries for the needy, the premier has disbursed over Rs30 million allegedly to “favourites” without complying with the procedure of selecting beneficiaries, the sources added.

AJK POLITICS (July 2013): The tussle over power in Azad Jammu and Kashmir seems to have reached the climax, as Barrister Sultan Mehmood-led camp has managed to get support of the required number of parliamentarians to topple the PPP-led government. Well placed sources said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had directed PML-N parliamentarians in the AJK assembly to remain impartial during the no-confidence vote against incumbent Prime Minister Abdul Majeed. Insiders said Sharif’s latest stance had been welcomed by AJK premier Majeed who was learnt to have thanked Sharif for discouraging his men from toppling his government. A no-confidence motion was brought against the AJK premier last Monday following which several ministers and advisers tendered their resignations.
Voting on the motion will be held in July 26 session of the AJK assembly, for which the speaker summoned the session on Wednesday. Eleven members of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly would vote for Barrister Sultan, making it clear that the federal government was not behind the no-trust move, which was initiated by members of Pakistan People’s Party. Aides to Mehmood said at least 30 PPP ministers had submitted the no-confidence motion after tendering their resignations, he added.
Talking to The Nation Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs Barjees Tahir said he visited Azad Jammu and Kashmir on the invitation of Prime Minister Majeed last week. He said PML-N respected the mandate of all other parties and that the party leadership had advised its members to wait for elections. He said PML-N had been in a position to form governments in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, but it respected the mandate of other parties, since it wanted to strengthen democracy.
He said PML-N according to its policy would try its best to eliminate corruption. AJK Prime Minister Majeed dismissed four ministers and two advisors of his cabinet from their offices with immediate effect, a private television reported citing Radio Pakistan. The ministers removed from office included Minister for Auqaf Muhammad Afsar Shahid, Minister for Rehabilitation Abdul Majid Khan, Minister for Power Chaudhry Arshad and Minister for Agriculture Sardar Akhtar Hussain Rabbani. The advisors removed were Chaudhry Muhammad Akhlaq and Muhammad Akmal Sargala.
Only a couple of days ago, the AJK cabinet also saw the resignation of six ministers following the submission of the no-confidence motion against the AJK premier by Mohammad Hussain and Majid Khan, two assembly members from Pakistan People’s Party. The ministers resigning – Barqiyat Chaudhry, Majid Khan, Akbar Ibrahim, Hussain Sargala, Afsar Shahid, Akhtar Hussain Rabbani and Azhar Gilani – were also joined by three advisors in voting for the no-confidence motion against Majeed. These ministers and advisers proposed the name of Sultan Mehmood who belonged to Pakistan People's Party as leader of the House.

The no confidence move, which comes exactly two years after the installation of Majeed led government, was reminiscent of three such successful moves between 2009 and 2010, which had generated critical opprobrium for the previous assembly. “Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed has caused irreparable harm to Kashmir freedom movement, identity of the state, governance and developmental activities besides violating merit, ruining institutions, unlawfully distributing development funds and inducting favourites, instead of eligible persons in the Public Service Commission,” read an excerpt from the resolution, submitted by minister for rehabilitation Abdul Majid Khan and MLA Muhammad Hussain Sargala.

Known locally as “Paradise on Earth,” the valley is 114 kilometres east of the base camp where gunmen shot dead American, Chinese, Lithuanian, Slovakian and Ukranian climbers in June. It was the worst attack on foreigners in Pakistan for a decade, but in neighbouring Kashmir, few Pakistanis are worried. “There is a bit of fear there, but overall we are enjoying ourselves and we will stay according to our plan,” said Mohammad Amir, a lawyer on holiday with his family from southern Punjab. Munazza Tariq, a university student from Karachi, agrees. “This was carried out by enemies of Pakistan. After it happened, we received a lot of calls from our relatives from Karachi, but we are safe and enjoying ourselves,” said Munazza. Local tourism ministry official Shehla Waqar says 600,000 people visited Neelum last year compared to 130,000 in 2010, before the Chinese built a road linking the area to Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Kashmir. “There is an influx of tourists in the area because we have a very beautiful road from Muzaffarabad to the Neelum Valley,” she said.
The nearby Line of Control slices apart the Indian and Pakistani-held zones of the Himalayan region where a ceasefire has held since November 2003. “This area is very peaceful and there is no fear of terrorism,” said Waqar. India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir. Sporadic clashes killed six soldiers in January and February, but officials on both sides have kept tensions in check and newly elected prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, has put improving relations with India at the cornerstone of his foreign policy. By contrast, Taliban attacks in the northwest – where mountain resorts have in the past sucked domestic tourism away from Kashmir – and the impact of crippling power cuts pushing people towards balmier climes is also driving visitor numbers higher, Waqar said. There are now 115 registered guesthouses in the Neelum valley, local deputy commissioner Mohammad Farid told AFP, compared to none in 2010.
The authorities say they have stepped up security after the climbers were killed in Gilgit-Baltistan, but because tourists in Kashmir are Pakistani rather than foreign, they are not braced for a serious knock-on effect. “We have strict instructions that all government and private guesthouses are to close their main gates at 10pm,” Kashmir tourism minister Abdul Salam Butt told AFP. “No doubt this incident has damaged international tourism in Pakistan, but it won’t affect Kashmir because we host domestic tourists,” he added. Raja Zarat Khan, who owns a private guesthouse, said he was fully booked into the next week and he had no cancellations. “I’m having a great season,” he said. Mohammad Awais, 44, runs a restaurant, a string of guesthouses and now also takes tour groups to the Neelum Valley. “This business has changed my life. Last year I did excellent trade because I gave tourists a lot of incentives: hiking, trekking, fishing, boating.
The environment in Neelum Valley is very good. Once you enter the valley, no one wants to leave.” He also doesn’t expect the Gilgit shootings to have a major impact. “It hasn’t made a big difference – perhaps four to five percent because the elite class, who come here, feel insecure, but no one has cancelled any bookings. People are still coming,” he said. The boom is welcome in a region where many men have traditionally left behind their families to work in Pakistan’s largest cities. Awais has hired cleaners, cooks, drivers and tourist guides: all men who would otherwise be unemployed. Suppliers have benefited. Villagers even sell their freshly grown cherries, apricots and plums to tourists. But others warn that more needs to be done to sustain the boom across the rest of Azad Kashmir. “There are some beautiful places in our area, but there are no proper roads available and the tourists can’t go to these areas,” said Khawaja Abdul Samad, who is thinking about opening his own hotel.

Karachi: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Football Association’s team had to pull out of the National Under-16 Football Championship after one of their defenders drowned in the canal which originates from Mangla Dam in Mirpur on Thursday evening. Tahir’s funeral was held on Friday, said mournful Muzaffar Noori, vice-president AJK Football Association, while talking to ‘The News’ from Mirpur. Tahir’s two teammates, Sheraz and Amjad, were rescued and shifted to the District Hospital Mirpur for treatment.“Sheraz and Amjad have regained consciousness and are in a slightly better condition,” Muzaffar said. The incident occurred after the team’s practice session in the evening on Thursday.
“Amjad was the first to fall into the canal. Tahir and Sheraz dived in to save him but due to high speed of the water they also failed to control themselves,” Muzaffar narrated. Luckily the local people watched them fighting for life and retrieved them from the deep waters of the Chechian canal which flows in great speed and is about 70 feet deep, he said. “Tahir was almost dead when he was retrieved,” said Muzaffar. “It was a tragic incident,” Muzaffar said.“The deceased Tahir, son of Arshad, was a new player and quite talented,” the official said.
After the tragic incident the team could not be sent to Abbottabad. Meanwhile, the draws of the National Under-16 Championship were held at the Kunj Stadium in Abbottabad on Friday.According to an official of the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF), Islamabad team also failed to arrive. A source said that due to examination of the players the federal capital team was not sent for the tournament. The remaining eleven teams have been placed in four groups. Group A carries Punjab, Peshawar Youth and hosts Abbottabad, while Group B has Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Karachi Youth. Balochistan, Lahore Youth and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) have been adjusted in Group C, while Group D comprises Sindh, Quetta Youth and Gilgit Baltistan. “All the teams have been lodged in good places and the tournament will kick off tomorrow,” a PFF official said. Balochistan will face FATA in the opening match to be held at 5:00pm on Saturday (today).
PFF Director Development and Competitions Wing Commander (retd) Pervez Saeed Mir and members of the Technical Study Group (TSG) have reached the city where the weather is quite pleasant and suitable for football. The Kunj Stadium where the event is being staged is located inside the city and is close to the Taj Mahal Hotel. The event is very important because the PFF will pick talented boys for forming the national Under-16 team for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-16 Championship Qualifiers to be hosted by Karachi in September.
