Who are ‘Samozas’ of Pakistan? By Dr Shahid Qureshi

Who are ‘Samozas’ of Pakistan?


By Dr Shahid Qureshi  


Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari. Former President, Asfandyar Wali Khan (ANP Chief) and Ishaq Dar (finance minister)



























Samozas of Pakistan have proved that they will never change no matter what ever is at stake whole country or its assets. The recent so called democratic elections in Karachi and winning of terrorist group MQM-A is a clear sign that politicians have decided to destroy every institution of Pakistan whatever is left. Only a week ago two military police soldiers were killed in cold blood by the terrorists in Karachi but dummy and geriatric Chief Minister Sindh has not signed on the papers giving powers to Rangers for operations against terrorists. His master Asif Zardari is sitting in Dubai in self-exile after making threats to Army Chief. He is saved by Nawaz Sharif in $60 million Swiss Case for not representing the case in court and providing essential evidence. The state is almost collapsed where Chief Justice of Supreme Court has asked many times to improve governance. The armed forces have issued a press release for the improvement of governance in the context of Karachi operation where terrorist are being released by the police and courts for lack of evidence.

Asif Zardari during his term destroyed Railways with the help and support of pro India ANP.  He destroyed civil administration and police which Sharif brothers aka ‘Banu Sharif’ continued in Punjab province since 2008. They did not hang a single convicted criminal and murderer out of 8000 plus waiting to be executed until 2015 after the tragic incident of Army Public School in December 2014.

The worst tragedy is that both Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif lied to the people of Pakistan that if they hang any one EU will stop trading with Pakistan. When I contacted the European Union on this matter they denied point blank any such instructions.  The result of that lie to the people and state of Pakistan was that it had to suffer more terrorist attacks on military, security institutions as well as civilians. In Pakistan only one TV channel SAMA run the story for few minutes and then there was silence?

In Pakistan, corruption starts at the top rightUnknown-4 from the President and Prime Minister. Asif Zardari, the President of Pakistan is a known Crook. Nawaz Sharif is a money launderer and a bank defaulter, His best buddy, Mirza Iqbal, a tycoon of Hall Road is a US convicted drug smuggler. Majority of Pakistanis elected these crooks to the core as their leaders. Most of the underclasses follow their lead and try to find shortcuts to wealth, especially in the West. However, as they say in America, this does not ” cut the mustard.” Advanced Western nations have mostly build their societies on honesty and ethics. There is a saying, “You do the crime. You do the time.” But, our Pakistani, Indian, and Bangladeshi, and Afghan brethren never seem to learn. Until, its time to “do the time.”

Our beautiful Deen is based on the Life of our Beloved Prophet (PBUH), whose honesty was exemplary from his birth to his death. He was called “Al-Amin,” the Trustworthy.”  But, his followers in the Indo-Pak Sub-continent are steeped in dishonesty.

Here is a story of dishonesty of Pakistanis in the US, their motto,” greed is good,” landed them in the slammer.

They were provided with opportunity to earn an honest living. They could have earned millions of dollars, just by honesty and hard work, like the majority of their countrymen living in the US. Unknown-6But, no, these chumps,louts,

shysters,and blighter, had to take a short cut to the Road to Perdition. The smeared the name of not only their community, but, also Pakistan and Pakistanis around the globe.

This story was broken by the New York Times, a Jewish Newspaper, which has no love lost for Pakistanis and/or Muslims.

The Moral of this Story: People who live in Glass houses, Must Not Throw Stones or One Bad Fish Can Spoil the Pond.

Please read on and weep:



U.S. Seizes 14 7-Eleven Stores in Immigration Raids


New York Times


Federal authorities seized 14 7-Eleven stores on Long Island and in Virginia early Monday, arresting nine owners and managers and charging them with harboring and hiring illegal immigrants and paying them using sham Social Security numbers, people briefed on the case said.


images-29Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn were also investigating 40 other 7-Eleven franchises in New York City and elsewhere, the person said, and the prosecutors were seeking $30 million in forfeiture from the stores and their corporate parent. The franchises split their profits with the corporation, which handles the store payrolls, the people said.


The owners and managers — eight men and a woman — were charged in an indictment to be unsealed Monday morning, the people said. It included accusations of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft stemming from payment of employees who were illegal immigrants using the Social Security numbers of children and the dead, the people said. One of the people said the owners and managers had abused and taken advantage of the illegal immigrant workers.


Many of those charged were of Pakistani descent and it was believed that most, if not all, of the illegal immigrants were also from Pakistan, one of the people said.


In one instance, an employee of one franchise was paid using the Social Security number of a former 7-Eleven employee, a person who had not worked for the store for 10 years and who had been the target of collection efforts by the Internal Revenue Service for much of that time because of the reported payments to the illegal immigrant, the people said.


The conduct charged in the indictment, the people said, had been going on for more than a decade. Twenty-five of the 40 additional 7-Eleven franchises under scrutiny were to be inspected on Monday as part of the ongoing investigation, the people said. Several of those stores were in New York City.


images-43One of the people briefed on the matter, noting that the parent company handled the store payrolls, said there were no internal controls to prevent the same Social Security numbers from being used to pay more than one store employee, which happened in more than one instance.


Scott Matter, a spokesman for the parent company, said it was aware of the arrests and seizures and “has been cooperating with federal authorities during their investigation.” Mr. Matter said the company would have no comment until it learned more about the case.


By about 9 a.m., eight of the nine who had been indicted were in custody, five of them in New York and three in Virginia, one of the people said. The last individual was being sought.


One of the raids took place about 6 a.m., at a 7-Eleven on Carleton Avenue in Islip, on Long Island, according to a law enforcement agent at the scene who declined to give his name or reveal the agency he worked for. One person, he said, was taken into custody from the store and two people were taken away from a house across the street. It was unclear what connection the house had to the investigation.


images-19The store remained closed through the early morning, with law enforcement agents turning away customers who ordinarily stop in for coffee. A worker for the Town of Islip said he had seen similar law enforcement activity at several other nearby 7-Elevens.


The United States attorney in Brooklyn, Loretta E. Lynch, and James T. Hayes, who is in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s office of investigations in New York City, were expected to announce the charges laterMonday morning, along with officials from the New York State Police and the Suffolk County Police Department.

Free & Fair Elections vs Clean Contestants


The CEC has once again assured the public to hold a free and fair elections and this is probably the umpteenth assurance coming from him.  What I am longing to hear from him at least once is that he will ensure that only the clean and honest politicians will be allowed to context the elections.  What is the use of the elections how so ever free and fair those may be if we have to elect from the same corrupt and dishonest lot of the politicians?! Mr. Justice CEC please assure us that only the clean and honest contestants would be there for us to elect from as we do not repeat do not want to elect the same rotten lot of politicians once again.

Saudi Arabia beheads Pakistani for drug trafficking

 | 16th January, 2013

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia beheaded a Pakistani man in the eastern Khubar province on Wednesday after he was convicted of drug trafficking, the interior ministry announced.

Arshad Mohammed was arrested for smuggling heroin and hashish into the kingdom, the ministry was quoted as saying by the official SPA news agency.

His execution brings to four the number of people executed in Saudi Arabia so far this year.

Last year, the kingdom beheaded 76 people, according to an AFP tally based on official figures. The US-based Human Rights Watch put the number at 69.

Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under Saudi Arabia’s Shariah, or Islamic law. 

Paris court confirms drug jail sentence for Saudi prince

 A Paris appeals court on Tuesday confirmed a Saudi prince’s conviction for involvement in a cocaine smuggling gang and added a seven million euro ($9.7-million) fine to his 10-year jail sentence.Prince Nayef Al-Shaalan was tried in absentia in the original trial last year and also failed to show up at the appeal court, which revalidated a warrant for his arrest.

The prince, who is not in line for the Saudi throne, was one of 10 people handed jail terms of four to 10 years in connection with an operation which landed two tonnes of cocaine at an airfield outside Paris in 1999.

Prince Nayef was convicted of illegally importing drugs, of complicity in the transport, detention and provision of drugs and of criminal conspiracy.

He was accused of providing a jet to transport the drugs from Colombia and using his diplomatic immunity as cover. 

A grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founding monarch Abdulaziz, the prince has denied any involvement in the drug-trafficking ring.

His lawyers were not immediately available for comment after Thursday’s appeal court ruling.

The investigation leading to the prince’s conviction began in June 1999, when 800kg of cocaine with a street value of $30 million was seized by police in a raid near Paris.

He was indicted on the basis of testimony from three Colombian former drug barons – Oscar Eduardo Campuzano Zapata, Juan Gabriel Usuga Norena and Carlos Alfonso Ramon Zapata – as part of a plea-bargain in a separate drugs trial in the United States.

The Colombians, also convicted in absentia last year, were respectively handed four-, nine- and 10-year jail sentences.

But the appeals court increased those sentences so now all three face 10 years in jail.

The Colombians and Prince Nayef were ordered by the court last year to jointly pay a total fine of 80 million euros to the French customs service.

On Tuesday the court ordered the Colombians to pay a supplementary fine of two million euros each.

A Spanish art dealer and financier was handed a five-year sentence last year for taking part in a conspiracy with the aim of importing drugs.

Five other defendants were also given 10 years on the same charges as the prince in the 2007 hearing.

MOVIE: Saudi Prince Nayef Al-Shaalan, International Cocaine Trafficker

Documentary about Saudi Prince Nayef Al-Shaalan, who was sentenced in absentia to 10 years in jail on charges of involvement in a cocaine smuggling gang [46mins] 






The 53-year-old prince was one of 10 people handed jail terms of four to 10 years in connection with an operation which landed two tonnes of cocaine at an airfield outside Paris in 1999. The judge ruled to uphold international arrest warrants against Prince Nayef and the nine other defendants, who include three former Colombian drugs barons. 

Prince Nayef was convicted of illegally importing drugs, of complicity in the transport, detention and provision of drugs and of criminal conspiracy. He is accused of using his diplomatic immunity to smuggle drugs to France on board a private jet. A grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founding monarch Abdulaziz and son-in-law to the Saudi deputy defence minister, the prince denies any involvement in drug trafficking. A Saudi representative at the hearing said he intended to appeal. 

The investigation leading to his prince’s conviction began in June 1999, when police acting on a tip-off seized 800 kilos of cocaine with a street value of $30 million a raid near Paris. Prince Nayef – who is alleged to have made contacts with Colombia’s Medellin cartel while studying at the University of Miami in the early 1980s – is accused of providing a jet to transport the drugs from Colombia to Paris. 



Drug Smuggling Saudi Prince Gets 10 Years

 By Vic Walter
May 9, 2007 7:13pm

A French court sentenced a Saudi prince to 10 years in prison for abusing his role in a large-scale cocaine smuggling operation. But the prince isn’t likely to see the inside of a cell anytime soon. Saudi Prince Nayef bin Sultan bin Fawwaz al-Shaalan, believed to be living in Saudi Arabia, did not appear at today’s hearing, or the trial which preceded it, and was sentenced in absentia by the court. It also fined him $100 million for his role in the plot to smuggle two tons of cocaine from Colombia to an airport outside Paris in 1999. Nine other defendants were also convicted in absentia for their part in the operation. The prince, who is the grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founding monarch Abdulaziz and the son-in-law to the Saudi deputy defense minister, was found guilty of using his diplomatic status and a 727 jet belonging to the Saudi royal family to transport the cocaine. The United States has also indicted al-Shaalan with conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine but does not have a policy of trying cases in absentia.  In 2005, a U.S. court found two other members of the operation guilty and sentenced them each to 24 years in prison and to pay $25,000 in fines. Former Drug Enforcement Administration official Tom Raffanello, who oversaw the U.S. investigation of Prince Nayef al-Shaalan, applauded the sentence of the French court. “I think it is a great thing. I wish more countries would try criminals in absentia, when it’s obvious they have avoided prosecution.” The prince is said to be living in Saudi Arabia, which does not have an extradition treaty with the United States.  It also does not have one with France. “Because of that we have to catch a break in order to catch him,” said Raffanello. Prince Nayef al-Shaalan has denied the smuggling charges and claims he has been cleared of any wrongdoing by the Saudi government.

Appointment tussle: Honest NHA Chairman Javed Iqbal Awan,threatened, victimized, and grilled for refusing to obey Minister Arbab Alamgir Khan’s orders

Appointment tussle: NHA chief grilled for refusing minister’s orders

By Arif Rana
December 21, 2012


ISLAMABAD: December 21, 2012 Sources say Alamgir rushed to PM House to lodge a complaint against chairman after coercion attempt failed. (1)`Following a tussle with the Communications Minister Arbab Alamgir Khan, the National Highway Authority (NHA) chairman was reportedly grilled at the Prime Minister House, The Express Investigation Cell (EIC) has learnt. According to reliable sources, the tussle started when NHA Chairman Javed Iqbal Awan refused to reinstate a grade-20 officer, Imran Khan Yousafzai, on the minister’s insistence. They maintain Yousafzai’s alleged involvement in corruption worth billions of rupees was the reason for Awan’s refusal to reinstate him.

Differences between Alamgir and Awan peaked last week when the former refused to join a signing ceremony for a multi-billion-dollar contract with a Chinese firm. 
Reportedly, the minister made Yousafzai’s reinstatement a condition for joining the ceremony. Sources say after even that attempt at coercion failed, Alamgir rushed to the PM House to lodge a complaint against the chairman. The NHA chairman was then summoned to the PM House, where reportedly, he was offered two options for disobeying the minister’s order – either accept a forced leave or spend his last year in service as an officer on special duty (OSD).

According to sources, despite being threatened with severe consequences, the NHA chairman did not yield to pressure and made it clear he would not resort to any illegal act while occupying his post. They added that he was finally shown the door after he signed an application for a month’s leave. Arbab Alamgir flatly denied he was pressurising Awan into reinstating Yousafzai. He claimed the NHA chairman had overstepped his authority by refusing to obey his orders.

“We (politicians) have a public mandate and can recommend transfers and postings in our ministry… If we can’t even do that, then why are we sitting in this office,” he maintained. Awan remained mum on the issue when contacted, saying, “Everything is on record and as a senior government official I cannot say anything else.”
