Second skier dies in another B.C. avalanche

Wasif Chudhary

A heliskier has died in an avalanche near Revelstoke, B.C. - the second skier to die in a B.C. avalanche in as many days.

The skier died Friday, RCMP said. The skier was reportedly one of four skiers buried by the avalanche from a group of 11, according to Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

RCMP could not be immediately reached for comment Saturday morning, but told local media Friday night that a male skier on a heli-skiing excursion died in a human-triggered avalanche at a location approximately 35 kilometres southeast of Revelstoke. The victim was one of four people buried in the avalanche, according to the Revelstoke Times Review.

Cpl. Moskaluk did confirm the victim was not from the Revelstoke area.

On Thursday, a veteran Whistler ski patroller died north of Pemberton, B.C., after an avalanche swept him through rough terrain and trees.

RCMP confirmed the deceased is Duncan MacKenzie, 30, of Whistler.

Four people were skiing in the Caspar Creek area north of Pemberton when the avalanche hit Thursday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. Avalanche warnings had been in effect in the area since Wednesday.

Iran delays missile test

Wasif Chudhary

Iran delayed promised long-range missile tests in the Gulf on Saturday and Tehran signaled it was ready for fresh talks on its disputed nuclear program.

Iran's state media initially reported early on Saturday that long-range missiles had been launched during naval exercises, a move that may irk the West concerned over threats by Tehran to close off a vital oil shipping route in the Gulf.

But Deputy Navy Commander Mahmoud Mousavi later went on the English language Press TV channel to deny the missiles had in fact been fired.

"The exercise of launching missiles will be carried out in the coming days," he said.

Ten days of Iranian naval drills have coincided with increased tension over Tehran's nuclear program with Washington and its allies. The European Union said it was considering a ban - already in place in the United States - on imports from the major oil producer.

Analysts say the conflicting reports on the missile test aimed to remind the West of the unforeseen consequences it risked if it ratcheted up pressure on Iran over its nuclear work, which the West says is aimed at building nuclear bombs. Tehran denies this.

"The location and the timing of the drill were very shrewd ... then came reports on launching missiles that can target America's bases in the region and Israel," said analyst Hamid Farahvashian.

"One of the messages was that you mess with Iran, then you stand to suffer from economic havoc," he said. "Iranians have always used this method of carrot and stick ... first they used the stick of closing Hormuz and now the carrot is its willingness for talks."

An EU spokesman said EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton wrote to Iran's nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili in October and had not yet had a response. But the European Union was open to meaningful talks with Tehran provided there were no preconditions.

"We continue to pursue our twin-track approach and are open for meaningful discussions on confidence-building measures, without preconditions from the Iranian side," EU foreign policy spokesman, Michael Mann, said in an email.

Tehran threatened on Tuesday to stop the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of an oil embargo over its nuclear ambitions, a move that could trigger military conflict with countries dependent on Gulf oil.

Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi said imposing sanctions on Iran's oil exports would lead to a leap in prices.

"Undoubtedly the price of crude will increase dramatically if sanctions are imposed on our oil ... It will reach at least over $200 per barrel," the Aseman weekly quoted Qasemi on Saturday as saying.

Reports on Iran threatening to close the strait of Hormuz by Iran were enough to send tremors through oil markets and spike the price of oil.


Iran's show of military might in the Gulf was reflected in the scale of the exercises, which Iranian media said were greater than previous war games. However, Iran test-fired its surface-to-surface Shahab-3 missile during 2009 exercises. It is thought to be capable of striking Israel and U.S. bases in the Middle East.

Washington has expressed concern about Tehran's missiles, which include the Shahab-3 strategic intermediate range ballistic missile with a range of up to 1,000 km (625 miles), the Ghadr-1 with an estimated 1,600 km range and a Shahab-3 variant known as Sajjil-2 with a range of up to 2,400 km.

Iranian media have given a massive coverage to the drill, with state television broadcasting live in an apparent attempt to strike a patriotic chord among ordinary Iranians concerned about a military strike.

The United States and Israel have not ruled out a military option if diplomacy fails to resolve Iran's nuclear dispute.

"I have already witnessed a war with Iraq in 1980s ... I can hear the drum beating of the war. A misfired bullet can spark a serious war," said merchant Mohsen Sanaie, 62, while glancing over newspapers headlines at a central Tehran newsstand.

He warily pointed at the headline of the Sharq newspaper "Power rally in the Strait of Hormuz," and the Vatan-e Emruz daily's "The Bermuda Strait of Hormuz" headline, a reference to the treacherous waters of the so-called Bermuda Triangle.

The Strait of Hormuz, a crucial route for 40 percent of the world's oil shipment, is in Iran and Oman's territorial waters. However, under international maritime law it is considered as open to international navigation and shutting it down would we seen as an act of war.

The U.S. Fifth Fleet said it would not allow any disruption of traffic in the world's most important oil route, which connects the biggest Gulf oil producers, including Saudi Arabia, with the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea. At its narrowest point, it is 21 miles across.

Analysts say choking off the strait will hurt Iran's oil-dependent economy, particularly when OPEC member Saudi Arabia has pledged to compensate for any shortages in Iran's crude exports to Europe.

Russia and China, Iran's main allies that have protected it from stronger U.N. sanctions, also have no interest in seeing the oil traffic disrupted in the Gulf and favor resolving the nuclear dispute through talks.


Iranian media reported that Jalili would write to the European Union's Ashton to express Tehran's readiness for fresh nuclear talks with major powers.

"Jalili will soon send a letter to Catherine Ashton over the format of negotiations ... then fresh talks will take place with major powers," said Iran's ambassador to Germany Alireza Sheikh Attar, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

Talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France, plus Germany (P5+1) stalled in January.

Iran has to date ignored U.N. Security Council demands to halt its sensitive nuclear work, and the threat to close the strait has been seen as a clear sign of the clerical establishment's concern over the prospect of harsher sanctions. Tehran has in the past threatened to close the waterway only if attacked by the United States and Israel.

"Raising the volume on threats by Iranians clearly shows that they are worried about losing petrodollars on which the country's economy depends on by more than 60 percent," said a senior western diplomat in Tehran, who asked not to be named.

A Day After Christmas

Wasif Chudhary

Retailers liken the day after Christmas to Black Friday. The massive return and refund day is set to get started Monday morning.

Chesterfield Mall is quiet early Monday morning, but that certainly won’t be the case later in the day. All kinds of customers are sure to make their way to retailers across the country.

From Christmas returns to shoppers using gift cards, to others looking for attractive day-after-Christmas sales, malls are sure to be packed.
Many stores will be opening early. Some opened as early as 5:00am. Chesterfield Mall officially opens at 8:00am, but some of the major stores opened at 7:00am.

This could be a banner day after Christmas shopping day for retailers.

A survey done by the National Retail Federation in mid-December predicted a 3.8% rise in holiday sales to a record $469.1 billion.

The site ShopperTrak predicts that foot traffic at stores Monday will be up 60 percent compared to the day after Christmas last year.

An American Express survey says 57 percent of Americans plan to shop on this day after Christmas compared with 43 percent last year.

Experts say one reason for the expected big shopping day Monday, compared with last year is that it falls on a Monday instead of a Sunday when many people spend time with family.

Another reason is that some people are delaying at least a portion of their holiday spending until after Christmas.

Additionally, many people have Monday off work.

For those returning items Monday, experts with Consumer Reports are advising customers to keep stickers, labels and tags intact. Most importantly, if you’re going to return something, try and have that receipt

Consumer Reports Senior Editor Todd Marks explains, “Without a gift receipt or a regular receipt, you're going to get back either a merchandise credit, or you're going to be reimbursed the lowest amount the item sold for, not necessarily what you paid for it.”

Consumer Reports also says some retailers will allow you to return or exchange merchandise that was bought online in their regular stores. Check the store’s website for details.

When it comes to electronics, you could face a repackaging fee if you try and take back any opened item.

Breaking: Huge Asset Javed Hashmi joins Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf

Wasif Chudhary

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) firebrand leader Makhdoom Javed Hashmi has reached the Multan airport and announced that he is joining Pakistan Tehreek-eInsaf (PTI) Saturday, Geo News reported.

Before leaving for Multan airport, PML-N workers blocked the road outside his house to prevent him reaching the airport. Workers were chanting slogans and expressed their solidarity with the party and the senior leader.

However, Hashmi was successful in reaching the airport to catch his flight for Karachi where PTI chief Imran Khan is likely to receive him at the Karachi airport.

While talking exclusively to Geo News earlier on Friday, Hashmi said that he would decide about joining PTI after consulting with his comrades here in his constituency. He told that he and Imran Khan were in talks on the same.

To a question regarding his party’s reaction on this development, a disillusioned Hashmi said that he had conveyed his reservations to the party leadership.

He told Geo News that he had talked to Mian Nawaz Sharif on the phone and Kulsoom Nawaz in person to discus his change of mind.

He said that PTI could bring about a big change in the country, but how big a change would it be was hard to comment on beforehand.

"I also long for a change, and that's exactly what I was up to now", said he.

He said he never practised the 'politics of/for power', rather 'politics of/for people', adding he was not considering joining PTI for securing a 'commanding position' or a ‘prominent portfolio’.

Commenting on Shah Mehmood Qureshi, he said that if he and Qureshi were on the same side they could work miracles.

Two Brothers: Pakistan Bangladesh

Wasif Chudhary

Yesterday I was watching a Cricket Match between Pakistan and Bangladesh. I am a big fan of Cricket. But when ever I watch the match of Pakistan and Bangladesh, I don't know that why I feel boring. But When yesterday I was watching the game between the Two Countries, that time I realize that when two brothers fight for one Medal than the match is not acceptable and enjoyable for the family members. They wish that both of the brothers sit on a table and live like very good friends.
That is the case with Pakistan and Bangladesh that they are real brothers which are angry with each other because of some personal issues. But believe me they love each other very much.

North Korea: Kim Jong-un 'to share power with his uncle'

Wasif Chudhary
Kim Jong-un, North Korea's new leader, will share power with an uncle and the military after the death of his father Kim Jong-il as the isolated country shifts to collective rule from strongman dictatorship, according to reports.

The source, with close ties to Pyongyang and Beijing, told Reuters that the military, which is trying to develop a nuclear arsenal, has pledged allegiance to the untested Kim Jong-un who takes over the family dynasty that has ruled North Korea since it was founded after world War Two.
The source also said Beijing was only notified of Kim's death earlier on Monday, the same day that North Korean state television broadcast the news. Kim died on Saturday.

Last U.S. troops leave Iraq as war ends

Wasif Chudhary

KHABARI CROSSING, Kuwait (AP) – The last U.S. soldiers rolled out of Iraq across the border into neighboring Kuwait at daybreak Sunday, whooping, fist bumping and hugging each other in a burst of joy and relief. Their convoy's exit marked the end of a bitterly divisive war that raged for nearly nine years and left Iraq shattered, with troubling questions lingering over whether the Arab nation will remain a steadfast U.S. ally.
The mission cost nearly 4,500 American and well more than 100,000 Iraqi lives and $800 billion from the U.S. Treasury. The question of whether it was worth it all is yet unanswered.
The last convoy of MRAPs, heavily armored personnel carriers, made a largely uneventful journey out except for a few equipment malfunctions along the way. It was dark and little was visible through the MRAP windows as they cruised through the southern Iraqi desert.
In the final days, U.S. officials acknowledged the cost in blood and dollars was high, but tried to paint a picture of victory.
Keep in mind they just tried to paint a picture of victory

FIFA Threatens to Suspend Switzerland Unless Sanctions Placed on FC Sion

Wasif Chudhary

FIFA has threatened to suspend Switzerland from international soccer next month if its national federation does not enforce a transfer ban on club FC Sion.
The ban was imposed in 2009 after Sion broke regulations in signing goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary. The club signed six new players last summer and used five of them in a Europa League playoff victory over Celtic, resulting in Sion being kicked out of the competition.
Sion originally obtained an order from a Swiss court requesting its re-instatement, which European soccer governing body UEFA rejected. The club also lodged several appeals in the courts before taking its case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which this week upheld UEFA’s ruling.
FIFA told the Swiss Football Association it has until Jan. 13 to sanction the club or risk being suspended. Soccer’s ruling body said in a statement on its website that it set the deadline because of the “attitude of the club repeatedly trying to circumvent this decision in a legally abusive manner.”
FIFA said “all matches in which the relevant players participated shall be declared forfeit or three points shall be deducted respectively” and the Swiss F.A. “will be automatically suspended from 14 January 2012” if the deadline is not met.
“We are disappointed,” Swiss F.A. President Peter Gillieron said in comments on the federation’s website. “In every event, we will do everything we can to clean up this situation.”
A ban would mean Swiss club Basel would not be able to play Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 and Switzerland’s national team would be barred from an exhibition game against Argentina in February.

Kobe Bryant’s Wife Vanessa Files for Divorce

Wasif Chudhary

Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa has filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage.
Court documents cite irreconcilable differences between the couple. Online reports say the couple, who met when Kobe Bryant was 21 and his future wife was 18, had no pre-nuptial agreement, so half of the money Bryant made over his years with the Lakers will go to his wife.
The Bryants have been married since 2001 and have two daughters together: Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5. According to the legal documents, Vanessa Bryant asked for joint legal and physical custody of the girls when she filed for divorce on Dec. 1, and her husband did the same in response.
“The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012,” read a statement released by a representative for the couple.
In 2003, Bryant was accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman who worked at a hotel in Colorado where Bryant was staying. Bryant admitted to having sex with the woman, but insisted it was consensual.
Vanessa Bryant stood by her husband during the scandal, releasing a statement that read, “”I know that my husband has made a mistake — the mistake of adultery. He and I will have to deal with that within our marriage, and we will do so. He is not a criminal.”
The charges against Bryant were dropped a year later because the accuser did not want to go ahead with a trial. The NBA star bought his wife a $4 million ring during the scandal.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Gaddafi daughter seeks ICC probe into his killing

Wasif Chudhary
A lawyer for Muammar Gaddafi's daughter said on Wednesday he had written to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to ask if an investigation had been launched into the killing of her father and brother.

A copy of the letter, seen by Reuters, said that Muammar Gaddafi and his son Mo'tassim were "murdered in the most horrific fashion with their bodies thereafter displayed and grotesquely abused in complete defiance of Islamic law."

"The images of this savagery were broadcast throughout the world, causing my client severe emotional distress," said the letter from Nick Kaufman, who represents Aisha Gaddafi.

"To date, neither Ms. Gaddafi nor any member of her family has been informed, by your office, of the initiation of an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the brutal murders," the letter said.

Muammar Gaddafi and Mo'tassim were captured in their home town of Sirte in October, two months after rebels seized the capital Tripoli and put the longtime Libyan leader and his relatives to flight.

They were killed soon after their capture while in the custody of fighters loyal to the country's new leadership, in circumstances that have not been fully explained.

Gaddafi's daughter Aisha fled with other family members to neighboring Algeria in August.

The ICC, based in the Hague, earlier this year issued arrest warrants for Muammar Gaddafi, another son, Saif al-Islam, and the former Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, for crimes against humanity.

In the letter, Aisha Gaddafi's lawyer asked if the ICC prosecutor's office was investigating the killings of her father and brother, and if it was taking steps to make sure the Libyan authorities themselves were investigating the matter.

The letter also asked whether the ICC was looking into what reports said at the time was a NATO air strike on Gaddafi's convoy moments before he was captured.

"Is your office investigating the attack allegedly carried out by NATO forces in order to determine whether individual criminal responsibility should be assigned for an unlawful military attack?" the letter asked.

Future of Tehrik-i-Insaf and Imran Khan

Wasif Chudhary

If we talk about the political scenario of Pakistan then one major name which is not so familiar before the last four to six months in the Pakistani politics but now is every where, the Newspapers are incomplete with it, the talk shows are boring and meaningless with out its participation and the charm of many youngsters faces especially the students, is Tehrik-i-Insaf.
Imran khan especially after his address to a large Mass in Minar-i-Pakistan is looking very comfortable and compose in the Pakistani Political system, he is talking about the Sonami(flood) of the People which will destroy the corrupt people who are eating this country like a beast.
He is talking about the Change in the Country.

Today I have read out a sentence from Imran khan that the "Power Full Elite of the Country doesn't want a society based on Justice"
I feel afraid that Imran Khan is still not comfortable with his Position in the Political System. Will he break the shekels in the near future or not? is the Question of the hour.

9/11 Conspiracy Files: The Third Tower

Wasif Chudhary

9/11 Conspiracy Files: The Third Tower delves into one of mysteries surrounding Sept. 11th, a third tower at the World Trade Centre, which along with the Twin Towers, collapsed on that fateful day. But this skyscraper was never hit by a plane. This 47-story tower fell seven hours after the others and has become the subject of heated speculation and conspiracy theories largely fuelled by the internet. 9/11 was the first global event in the age of the worldwide web and it's being used as a platform for a wide range of conspiracy theories - more than 50 at the last count - that allege that the U.S. government was somehow involved in the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.
Conspiracy theorists like Dylan Avery believe the Third Tower was brought down by a series of controlled explosions. Avery is the 24-year-old documentary maker behind the internet phenomenon Loose Change which has been viewed tens of millions of times on-line. He and his film pull no punches, claiming a government conspiracy was behind the events of 9/11 and the ensuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The mysterious collapse of the third tower is central to his argument. It's an accusation the U.S. Government categorically denies.

After seven years, on Aug. 21, 2008, the official report on the World Trade Centre collapse of Building 7 (the Third Tower) was released. U.S. Federal investigators concluded that fire weakened floor beams and a critical support column leading to the collapse of the third tower. However, that would make the third tower the first and only skyscraper in the world to collapse solely due to fire. 9/11 Conspiracy Files: The Third Tower explores the many questions that continue to fuel conspiracy theorists.
Its an honour for me if you share some knowledge and information about this issue here.

Deaths from malaria fall, but funding woes loom-WHO

Wasif Chudhary

By Kate Kelland

LONDON, Dec 13 (Reuters) - Malaria deaths have fallen dramatically in the past decade thanks to increased aid allowing more people access to nets and medicines, but the economic slowdown threatens to curb future progress, the World Health Organisation said on Tuesday.

In its annual global report on the mosquito-borne parasitic disease, the WHO said international funding for the fight against malaria rose to about $1.7 billion in 2010 and $2 billion in 2011, the highest annual amounts ever reached.

But this is still far short of the estimated $5 billion to $6 billion needed each year to achieve the WHO's target to reach zero deaths from malaria by 2015.

"The increased funding has resulted in tremendous progress," the United Nations' health agency said.

The estimated number of deaths from malaria dropped to 655,000 in 2010, 36,000 lower than in 2009.

"While this represents significant progress, the mortality figures are still disconcertingly high for a disease that is entirely preventable and treatable," the report said.

Malaria is endemic in more than 100 countries worldwide but can be prevented by the use of bednets and indoor spraying to keep the mosquitoes that carry the disease at bay.

Effective malaria drugs known as artemisinin-based combination therapies, or ACTs, can cure the infection but access to these medicines is often hampered in poor countries where funding is limited and health services are patchy.

Total eradication of the parasitic disease, which is spread through the bites of infected mosquitoes and threatens about half the world's population, is still a long way off. Some think it could take another 40 to 50 years.

The WHO's report said a huge scale-up in malaria control programmes between 2008 and 2010 had meant that enough insecticide-treated mosquito nets were distributed to be able to protect more than 578 million people at risk of the disease in the worst-hit region, sub-Saharan Africa.

A total of 11 countries in Africa saw a more than 50 percent reduction in either confirmed malaria cases or malaria hospital admissions and deaths in the past decade, and a drop of more than 50 percent in malaria cases was also found in 32 of the 56 malaria-endemic countries outside Africa during the same period.

Morocco and Turkmenistan were certified by the WHO in 2009 as having eliminated the disease.

"The results set out in this report are the best seen in decades," WHO's director general Margaret Chan said in a statement with the report. "After so many years of deterioration and stagnation in the malaria situation, countries and their development partners are now on the offensive."

But the report projected that with many international donors suffering recessions or very slow economic growth, funds to fight malaria may fall in 2012 and 2013 and could drop to an annual $1.5 billion by 2015.

Even this forecast was an "optimistic scenario" it said, since many donors have not yet finalised what their future commitments are likely to be. (Reporting by Kate Kelland; Editing by Matthew Jones)

Rightful victory stolen: Amir

Wasif Chudhary

Britain’s Amir Khan, saying he felt a rightful victory was stolen from him on Saturday, vowed to return stronger after a controversial majority decision defeat to American Lamont Peterson. The 25-year-old English boxer said he was putting his plans to rise into the welterweight ranks on hold for one more fight in order to face Peterson in a rematch that he hopes will be staged in England. Referee Joe Cooper took points from Khan in the seventh and 12th rounds for shoving hometown hero Peterson and that proved to be the margin of Khan’s loss before a sellout crowd of 8,647 at the Washington Convention Center. One judge scored Khan a 115-110 winner while the other two handed Peterson the verdict by 113-112. All three judges scored the last round even, so Khan would have kept his titles by majority draw without the last deduction. “I was up against the referee and Lamont,” Khan said. “The referee was a bit on his side. When you come to his home, you are two points down before the fight starts. I went to his hometown. I beat him. And I didn’t get it. “A few of the (boxing) commissioners came to me and said that it was a disgusting decision. Even Lamont was shocked he won the fight.” Khan called it “all a learning curve” and vowed “I will come back stronger.” “It’s boxing. You live another day. A rematch is what I’m looking at. I want it straight away. I want my two titles back. I know I won that fight and I think everybody else knows I won it too.” Peterson, once a homeless youth living on the streets of the US capital, relished taking the World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation light-welterweight world titles and ignored Khan’s cries of foul. “I’m a fighter not a referee. I wasn’t caught up into that,” Peterson said. “I was focused on executing my game plan.”

Amir Khan penalized, complains: Is the boxer right?

Wasif Chudhary

After losing a close decision to District native Lamont Peterson on Saturday night at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, boxer Amir Khan said the penalties he suffered in the super lightweight title bout show why D.C. rarely hosts big boxing events.

The bout was the first major championship fight in the nation’s capital since 1993.

As The Post’s Gene Wang reported:

Virginia-based referee Joseph Cooper deducted a point from Khan in the seventh and 12th rounds for pushing off. They proved decisive in a fight that came down to a razor-thin margin.
Nelson Vasquez scored the fight 115-110 to Khan, but fellow judges George Hill and Valerie Dorsett each gave the fight to Peterson, 113-112.

Amir Khan ready to defend title against Lamont Peterson

Wasif Chudhary

British born light-welterweight Pakistani Amir Khan will face Lamont Peterson for the IBF and WBA light welterweight titles on Saturday night at the Convention Center in Washington D.C. Amir Khan is really confident to defend his title against the Peterson. Khan, the birthday boy is so focused on his clash with Lamont Peterson he forgot an important date – his 25th birthday said that “the home crowd is a lot of pressure,”, said this week of his sixth title defense. “He might crack. I think he’ll fight with his heart and all his dreams will go out the window. “I made the same mistake before.” Khan suffered his only loss when Breidis Prescott knocked him out in 2008 in the first round of their bout in Manchester, England, near Khan’s hometown of Bolton. On the other hand his competitor Peterson, 27, has lost only to unbeaten World Boxing Organization junior-welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, in a December 2009 fight in Rancho Mirage. The fighters weighed in Friday, with Khan weighing 139 pounds to Peterson’s 140.
Number of games played, won and lost by both of these boxers
Amir Khan (26-1, 18 knockouts)
Lamont (29-1-1, 15 knockouts
This suggests the high rank of both of these players...

America not Scared about New Air Defence System of Pakistan: Pentagon

Wasif Chudhary

WASHINGTON: US Department of Defence has said that the new air-defene system installed by Pakistan was of no consequence for America as it posed no danger to their forces deployed in Afghanistan, Geo News reported.

A briefing by Pentagon also stressed that to avoid another Mohmand attack better coordination was the way to go not an air-defence system, adding such tactical decisions were Pakistan’s internal affairs.

Religion and Fashion

Wasif Chudhary
Even a Muslim child
Here is West

According to Wikipedia,Fashion is a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing, foot wear, or accessories. The religion has a key role in the way of fashion.
Historically, fashion and religion have had an uneasy relationship; there have been some nasty clashes of religious and secular values with respect to fashion and the use of religious iconography recently.
If we consider Islam in this regard, the Muslims are one of the modern civilization of the world but their is a huge difference between the fashion style of the Muslims and the People of other Religions. What is the reason behind this, the reason is that every religion has kept its followers in some sort of boundaries, and the Muslims follow the teachings of their religion, But unfortunately the followers of other religions do not.
Islam does not allow its followers whether men or women, to wear such kind of clothes which does not cover their body completely. The women should have to cover their all body properly so that she could hide herself from the sight of strangers.
On the other hand we see that the people of other religions, especially Christians and Jews does not obey the teachings of their respective religions. They wear those clothes which does not cover their body completely. They use such sort of cosmetics which attracts others, they use perfumes and many other things which are not allowed in any of the respective religions.
So the relationship between Religion and Fashion is very deep.
