25 December, Merry Xmas & Happy Birthday M.Ali Jinnah

In Pakistan 25 December has great significance Our Great leader Quaid e Azam and also Jesus Christ(Hazrat Isa) both were born on 25 December.
(This blog is not a commentary on both Great people and their birthdays we will write about that later some other day.)
Today

Jack and I are honoured to get the opportunity to say merry Xmas and Happy Quaid`s Birthday On behalf of the (Christian community in Pakistan) and (Pakistanis from all the faiths).

We believe it should be taken as a day to move forward and strengthen ties. In Pakistan i can proudly say that these two figures have a place in every persons heart One because Jinnah Made Pakistan a place where All the faiths have complete right to follow their faith, Two
because Jesus Christ is believed to be a great man and a prophet of Allah in Christianity and Islam.
In the end i would say have fun on this day. tc

Benazir Bhutto's assasination and change in the political atmosphere in Pakistan

Benazir Bhutto (late) was a former Prime Minister of Pakistan. On 27th December last year she lost her life in a terror attack on her election rally. 
The purpose of this post is not to relate how she died and which people were involved in her death... that can be discussed later. 
First I want to relate some of her achievements. In 1989, Benazir was awarded the Prize For Freedom by the Liberal International. On 11 December 2008 Bhutto was awarded the 2008 UN Human Rights award for the her services for poor people of Pakistan. This award was recieved by her son.
Unfortunately she was shot at and killed on 27th December 2007. General Elections were scheduled for January 2008 in Pakistan and death changed the whole scenario. Three days holiday were announced by the President of Pakistan. Bhutto's husband, Asif Ali Zardari, who Bhutto had asked to stay in Dubai while she herself had decided to go back to Pakistan, came to Pakistan on the night of her assassination. Surprisingly (and it can be said to be a positive move) the Pakistan People's Party did not boycott the election. They did not even ask for their postponement (although they were later rescheduled for February). Mr. Zardari took over the command of the PPP which people thought would be taken over by Makhdum Ameen Fahim who is a senior member of the PPP. Zardari then led PPP into a successful election campaign where PPP won seats in all four provinces and also has a good chunk of the seats in the National Assembly. 
Many people thought that Mr. Ameen Fahim would be nominated as the Prime Minister of Pakistan, but no! Mr. Zardari nominated Yousaf Raza Gillani as the PM of Pakistan. At this time people were thinking that maybe Asif Zardari just wants to lead the PPP without having any seat in the NA. But Mr. Zardari had other plans. He succesfully removed President Musharraf from the office of the President, with the help of Nawaz Sharif and MQM (who were actually supporters of Musharraf but at the time of impeachement they changed faces), and then even more surprisingly took over as the President of Pakistan. In short Benazir's assassination favoured her husband who is now the most successful man in Pakistan. 
Mr. Zardari still has the 17th Amendment's powers although before impeaching Musharraf he had stated that he would give these powers back to the Parliament. 
Benazir's death was for the restoration of Democracy and democracy has been restored in Pakistan but still people do not know whether and if the rule of Democratic government is better than that of a Dictator.


Thanks to Enum for the corrections.

Antivirus 2008: A Hoax


A few days ago while looking for a suitable FREE spyware program I came across Antivirus 2008. By the looks of the welcome screen this software looks exactly similar to Microsoft's AntiSpyware program but in reality it is a counterfeit Antivirus program which is actually a spyware itself. 
Im not the only person fooled by this software. About 80% of Windows XP users have been tricked into installing this program and deleting it isnt very easy. Infact it is very difficult for an average PC user to note that this program is actually not from Microsoft. A screenshot of the program is pasted here and if your PC has been infected by this spyware follow the link below to learn how to delete this program.
This software is also for Sale under the names: AntiVirus 360, Antivirus 2009, SpyFalcon, etc.

Even Einstien Believed In GOD


The year was 1902, when a professor asked his student whether it was God who created everything that exists in the universe. Student replied: Yes He again asked: What about Evil? Has God created evil also? The student got silent. Then the student requested that may he ask a question from him? Professor allowed him to do so. He asked: Does cold exist? Professor replied: Yes...! Don't you feel the cold dear? Student said: I am sorry but you are wrong sir. Cold is a complete absence of heat. There is no cold; it is only an absence of heat. Student asked again: Does darkness exist? Professor said: Yes. Student replied: You are again wrong sir. There is no such thing like darkness. Its actually the absence of light. Sir...! We always study Light & Heat, but not cold & darkness. Similarly, the Evil does not exist. Actually it is the absence of Love, Faith & true belief in God. That student was Albert Einstein.

The reason I have written this blog is that i find it quite interesting talking to atheists and the facts they come up with usually they refer people like Einstein. With all due respect i will not say anything against their belief but all the scientists i can recall from the back of my head all believe in God. I have managed to put a list of scientists and their faith down for you people.
Isaac Newton (Monotheism), Albert Einstein(Judais), Abdus salam(Ahmadi), Galileo Galilei(Roman Catholic), Thomas Edison(Deist), Johannes Kepler(lutheran christanity), Blaise Pascal(Jansenism chritianity), Heinrich Hertz(Lutheran and jewish), Max Planck( Christian), Marie Curie(Catholic), Stephen Hawking I am not sure about him but reading his book it looks like he believes in he existence of supreme being. The only atheist scientists i know are Paul Dirac and Ernest Rutherford.

Having said that i will say I feel open discussing science and religion because I believe that Science is a creation of God (Its just another way to know God (Allah) better which means its another way to pray) because the religion I follow there is no scientific fact that is wrong in it let it be theoretical physics (expanding universe) or Human Anatomy(Women’s Womb).
In the end I would advise atheist to do research before disbelieving in the Existence of God and I would also mention that its not considered cool to be atheist any more.
