    Radical groups in Pakistan file a petition in the apex court to revoke Holy Bible in Pakistan. By: Jawad Mazhar Islamabad: June 3, 2011. (PCP) A group of fanatic Muslim clerics in Pakistan filed a petition to clamp ban on the Holy Bible as it contains passages and miracles of Lord Jesus Christ which he performed during the three (03) of preaching period upon the face of earth. But these passages and miracles were seen as humiliation of the Islamic Prophet by radical Muslim elements. PCP learnt through very reliable sources. Sources alleged in case court failed to do...

    The world breathed a sigh of relief that Pakistani jihadists had failed in their attempt to use nine-year-old Sohana Jawed to carry a bomb in an attack that would have killed her. Now, Afghan jihadists tried, and this time, it worked. Perhaps this was a copycat attack; in any event, Sohana's case is no longer an anomaly, but part of the jihadist playbook in the region. Where is the outrage? As with yesterday's hospital bombing -- which reportedly hit a maternity ward the hardest -- all of Afghanistan, and indeed all of the Muslim world ought to be furious. If...

    In his surrender speech to the nation President Obama said, ďWe will work with the Pakistani government to root out the cancer of violent extremism, and we will insist that it keep its commitments.Ē That was a lie to the American people and he knew it. He has been briefed that the Taliban and al Qaeda are being sheltered in Pakistan with the approval of the local government and security forces. The assessments in the intelligence briefings he receives daily should have made it quite clear that Pakistan regularly aids our enemies. Pakistan providing aid to militantsAs reported by Fox...

    The cellphone of Osama bin Ladenís trusted courier, which was recovered in the raid that killed both men in Pakistan last month, contained contacts to a militant group that is a longtime asset of Pakistanís intelligence agency, senior American officials who have been briefed on the findings say. The discovery indicates that Bin Laden used the group, Harakat-ul-Mujahedeen, as part of his support network inside the country, the officials and others said. But it also raised tantalizing questions about whether the group and others like it helped shelter and support Bin Laden on behalf of Pakistanís spy agency, given that...

    Whatever their strength, American troops will not determine success in Afghanistan. Nor will the newly formed Afghan National Army. As U.S. forces are gradually withdrawn over the next three years, it is Pakistan's 600,000-strong army that will become the dominant military force in the region and will try to shape its future. But that military is undergoing a deep internal crisis of identity, its most serious since Pakistan's founding in 1947. How it resolves this crisis will determine its future, the future of the Afghan War ó and much else. This week's news that a Pakistani brigadier general has been...

    While Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbotabad may or may not have been known to Pakistan's senior leadership, it is apparent that at least some in the country realized it. Now we have the leader of another very deadly jihadist group living openly in Pakistan. Fazle-ur-Rahman Khalil is the leader of the Harakat-ul-Mujahedeen, which was allied to al Qaeda. Khalil was a trusted confidant of bin Laden and signed the fatwa against the United States in the 1990s. Harakat-ul-Mujahedeen was and is an international group, with its jihadists ending up in Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, and Somalia. Khalil is living openly...

    AP via SFGate ^ | 6/18/11 | KIMBERLY DOZIER, AP Intelligence Writer
    U.S. officials say Pakistan has apparently tipped off militants at two more bomb-building factories in its tribal areas, giving the terror suspects time to flee, after U.S. intelligence shared the locations with the Pakistani government. Those officials believe Pakistan's insistence on seeking local tribal elders' permission before raiding the areas may have most directly contributed to the militants' flight, though they also suspect low-level security officials may have tipped the militants off. U.S. officials have pushed for Pakistan to keep the location of such targets secret prior to the operations, but the Pakistanis say their troops cannot enter the lawless...

    It's always painful to watch a love affair go sour, as the unrealistic expectations and secret betrayals come crashing down in a chorus of recrimination. That's what's happening now between the U.S. and Pakistan, and it has a soap-operatic quality, in Washington and Islamabad alike. "How could they treat us so badly?" is the tone of political debate in both capitals. If this were a feuding couple, you'd counsel a cooling-off period, as they recover their wounded pride and balance. And that's probably the right advice for the U.S. and Pakistan, too. These countries have been bitterly disappointed in the...

    Pakistan has arrested five alleged informants for the CIA who helped in the US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden in northern Pakistan in May, US media report. Among those held by the intelligence agency, the ISI, was the owner of a safe house rented to the CIA to watch Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, the New York Times reported.

The fate of the CIA informants arrested in Pakistan was unclear, the newspaper reported, citing American officials. Outgoing CIA Director Leon Panetta raised the issue of the informants' detention during a trip to...

Pakistanís detention of five C.I.A. informants, including a Pakistani Army major who officials said copied the license plates of cars visiting Bin Ladenís compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in the weeks before the raid, is the latest evidence of the fractured relationship between the United States and Pakistan.

    Pakistan's intelligence service has arrested the owner of a safe house rented to the CIA to observe Usama bin Laden's compound before the U.S. raid that killed the Al Qaeda leader, as well as a "handful" of other Pakistanis, a U.S. official said late Tuesday. In Pakistan, a Western official confirmed a New York Times report that five of the Pakistani informants who fed information to the CIA before the May 2 bin Laden raid were arrested by Pakistan's top military spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, known as ISI.

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan ó Twice in recent weeks, the United States provided Pakistan with the specific locations of insurgent bomb-making factories, only to see the militants learn their cover had been blown and vacate the sites before military action could be taken, according to U.S. and Pakistani officials. Overhead surveillance video and other information was given to Pakistani officials in mid-May, officials said, as part of a trust-building effort by the Obama administration after the killing of Osama bin Laden in a U.S. raid early last month. But Pakistani military units that arrived at the sites in the tribal areas of...

    Submarine Sails China-Pakistan all-weather friendship scales new heights Pakistanís efforts to have a sea-based minimum credible nuclear deterrent vis-a-vis India took a significant step forward last month when the state-owned, Wuhan-based China State Shipbuilding Industrial Corp (CSIC) ferried the first Qing-class conventional attack submarine (SSK) to Shanghai to begin a year-long series of sea trials, which is likely to include the test-firing of three CJ-10K submarine-launched, 1,500km-range land attack cruise missiles (LACM) capable of being armed with unitary tactical nuclear warheads.

    Pakistan's army chief says billions of dollars in U.S. aid meant for the military's fight against Islamist militants should be diverted to bolster the economy and help ordinary Pakistanis. The announcement could be seen as a snub to the U.S. and an attempt to bolster the military's popularity following the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani reiterated that the army has ceased its training relationship with the U.S. and has restricted the scope of intelligence sharing. He also said American drone attacks are unacceptable and declined U.S. calls for an operation in the militant-infested North...
