Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

ISLAMABAD (Championspk) Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has on Monday said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play cricket series in India. He said that it is impossible for Pakistan to keep singing the ballads of friendship despite continuous hate-mongering from the Indian side,

Talking informally to media at Punjab House in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that India’s treatment was unfair with former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan, PCB Chief Executive Najam Sethi and revered singer Ghulam Ali. “Why was there no action against anyone for such behaviour with Pakistanis in India?” questioned Nisar.

Pakistani Interior Minister said that Indian government was behind everything that happened to the Pakistani citizens in India. He said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play the cricket series in India. “It is Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s prerogative whether he wants to send the team to India or not but I will keep opposing such an act”, he added.

“It is impossible for us to keep singing the ballads of friendship while Indians continue war-mongering”, he said. Nisar added that Pakistan will raise the issue of declaring Shiv Sena as a terrorist organization on international level

ALSO SEE Ajmal delivers deadly ‘doosra’ The university had yesterday issued a notice to Ajmal to vacate the premises within three days. The VC later said on Geo Super channel that they feared that there was financial mismanagement at the academy and Ajmal was using it for commercial gain which was against the agreement between the two parties. Ajmal was given land inside the university campus in 2012 to build and run his academy by the syndicate committee of the university. But few months back the syndicate issued a notice sent to the Pakistan spinner informing him that due to security reasons they had cancelled the permission given to him to run the academy. The off spinner said he had removed all apprehensions of the university while the DCO had agreed to ensure top security for the academy. “Everything is settled now and I am allowed to continue running the academy. I told them I have no financial or commercial motives and just want to produce top class players from the talent in Faisalabad,” Ajmal said. The Pakistan spinner has been out of luck since his bowling action was declared illegal last year by the International Cricket Council. Although he has modified his bowling action and will be going for the Bangladesh Premier League this month, the in PCB Pakistani cricket borad some officials is PCB Mafia and selectors have ignored him since always.

The Blue Jackets top five trade candidates as the spiral continues

The Blue Jackets top five trade candidates as the spiral continues

Canada( ByJared Clinton)Thursday night the Columbus Blue Jackets dropped their eighth straight game in what was John Tortorella’s first game back behind an NHL bench. The hope was that Tortorella, who took over from the fired Todd Richards, would be the spark the Blue Jackets needed to immediately be jumpstarted to their first victory — or point, at the very least — of the season. Instead, a late redirect by Minnesota Wild winger Tomas Vanek ripped a potential overtime point from Columbus’ hands, and now the questions begin about what changes could be coming next.

Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen has made no secret of the fact that he has been exploring the trade market in search of a top-pairing defenseman and finding a deal isn’t going to be easy this early in the season. It’s clear, too, that Kekalainen doesn’t want to make any deals that mortgage his club’s future. That said, here are five players Kekalainen could part with who could fetch his Blue Jackets a good return: KERBY RYCHEL The most obvious choice to be moved out of Columbus is the 21-year-old Rychel. Drafted by the Blue Jackets in the first round of the 2013 draft, Rychel has spent much of the past two seasons in the AHL. In 51 games with the Springfield Falcons in 2014-15, he scored 12 goals and 33 points, and got a five-game audition with the Blue Jackets last season. Throughout the off-season and into the beginning of this season, Rychel’s name has been the center of trade speculation out of Columbus. At 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, he has the perfect frame to be a young power forward, a position that the Blue Jackets filled when they acquired Brandon Saad from the Chicago Blackhawks this off-season. With Rychel’s upside, he could fetch a significant return should Columbus be willing to pull the trigger on dealing him away. BOONE JENNER Jenner is entering his third full season with the Blue Jackets and coming off of a season in which he missed more than 50 games due to injury. In 31 games, though, Jenner managed nine goals and 17 points. He has the ability to be a very effective depth winger and his game is only looking like it will get better. Like Rychel, Jenner’s size is maybe his best asset. He stands 6-foot-2, 208 pounds and he’s got decent wheels for his frame. He was an extremely prolific scorer in the OHL, notching 45 goals and 82 points in 58 games in his final campaign with the Oshawa Generals. Jenner wouldn’t likely get Kekalainen a massive return — it’d be shocking to see Jenner be dealt one-for-one for an impact player — but if he is packaged with the right mix of picks and low-level prospects, he could be an interesting depth piece for whichever team lands him. Jenner is in the final year of his entry-level deal, so if a team were to deal for him, they wouldn’t have to worry about him going anywhere anytime soon. BRANDON DUBINSKY From a pure points-per-game perspective, Dubinsky is coming off of the best season of his career. He missed nearly half the 2014-15 campaign due to injury but Dubinsky scored 13 goals and 36 points in 47 outings for Columbus. In eight games, he’s also the third-highest scorer on the Blue Jackets with two goals and four points. Dubinsky is a consistent threat for 40 points per season and he’s scored 20 goals twice in his career. That said, he hasn’t reached that mark since the 2010-11 season with the New York Rangers. The Blue Jackets are getting younger and they need help on defense. Dubinsky, 29, is one of the more elder statesmen in Columbus and teams looking for a veteran pivot to play in a second-line role could do much worse than Dubinsky. The biggest difficulty in moving Dubinsky is his contract, which kicked in this season, has a no-movement clause and modified no-trade clause and sees him earn $5.85 million for each of the next six seasons. That’s going to make it tough for Kekalainen to trade Dubinsky, but he could get a solid second-pairing blueliner in a one-for-one deal. If it’s a package deal, maybe the Blue Jackets can get even more. MATT CALVERT Calvert’s name doesn’t jump off the page, but the 26-year-old signed a three-year, $2.2-million deal this off-season which is good value for the winger. He’s not going to wow with his offensive ability, but Calvert is a solid two-way forward. He can play on both a second power play unit and is more than capable of manning a top penalty kill. It’s the versatility of Calvert that makes him intriguing. If he could stay healthy, he could be a 20-goal scorer. In his WHL days, Calvert showed the type of offensive punch that would interest some GMs around the league, as he notched 47 goals and 99 points in his final season with the Brandon Wheat Kings. He’s entering his prime now, too, so the prospect of a couple career years might help Kekalainen move Calvert. Trading Calvert would almost certainly mean packaging him with something, though, because the winger isn’t the kind of difference-maker that would garner a top-two or three defenseman coming back in any one-for-one trade. More than likely, Calvert could be an addition to sweeten the pot for the team Kekalainen is dealing with. RYAN JOHANSEN This is a stretch and would be the boldest move of all for Kekalainen, but this team is in desperate need of a top-pairing blueliner and Johansen would absolutely be able to fetch that. Johansen’s coming off of a career year with 26 goals and 71 points, can be an all-situations player if need be and is the top-line center on the Blue Jackets. That said, with Columbus needing a goal to tie Thursday’s game against the Wild, Johansen was stapled to the bench. He didn’t budge from his spot for the final six minutes of the contest and skated a season low 13:57 even though he wasn’t on for a single goal against. From a financial perspective, it also might be worth it to move Johansen. He’s making $4 million per season for the next two years and will be up for a new deal in July 2017. Contract talks with the Blue Jackets have already been contentious once and there’s no reason to believe they wouldn’t be again, because with the way Johansen performed in the first year of his new deal, he’s going to be needing a significant raise. It’s doubtful — extremely doubtful, really — that Kekalainen has grown desperate enough for a solution in Columbus that he would entertain offers for Johansen quite yet. But if the Blue Jackets lose a ninth, tenth or even eleventh in a row, anything could happen.

AIR CHIEF DELIVERS LECTURE AT NATIONAL DEFENCE UNIVERSITY USA

Islamabad ( Championspk ) Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, Chief of the Air Staff, Pakistan Air Force, addressed the participants of the National Defence Course, as a key note speaker at National Defence University, Washington DC, USA. While speaking at the occasion the Air Chief said, “We want peace with all countries in the region including India, hence the blame game by anyone in this regard does not serve the purpose. First, we have to understand the regional dynamics and secondly, find out comprehensive strategies to fight the menace of terrorism together. Stability in Afghanistan and long term solutions to all the outstanding issues in the Middle East are some of the pre-requisites for ensuring peace in the region. Hence, the Pakistan led peace process in Afghanistan needs to be supported in true letter and spirit and all the stake holders i.e Pakistan, Afghanistan and Taliban should, under the auspices of Pakistan, engage in serious dialogue fully backed by the International community”.

While highlighting the great sacrifices made by the Pakistani nation in the war against terrorism, the Air Chief said that Pakistan, being the most affected country from terrorism has lost huge number of valuable lives and financial resources. He further added that the sacrifices rendered by Pakistan and ISAF must culminate in lasting peace and stability in Afghanistan which is beneficial for the international community in general and the region in particular.

While talking about the concept of air land operations he said, “There is a paradigm shift in threat dimension and complexion in Air Land operations especially after 9/11. The ongoing anti-terrorist operations in Pakistan which started in 2014 are fully backed by political leadership and owned by the entire nation. PAF, with its wherewithal, has the capacity to operate with total precision, day and night in all weather conditions and its air strikes have caused major blow to terrorists in terms of foreign elements killed and infrastructure destroyed”. He reiterated Pakistan’s resolve to fight against the evil of terrorism and showed his determination to win this war at any cost.

In the end he emphasized the importance of joint operations and said that the coordination between land and air forces is the key to success in any air campaign. He concluded with the remarks that though air power can’t win wars alone; but no war can be won without the application of air power which makes it the instrument of first choice for political leadership in contingencies and crisis situation.

The National Defense University (NDU) of USA was established in 1976 to consolidate the nation’s defense community intellectual resources.National Defense University (NDU) supports the joint warfighter by providing rigorous Joint Professional Military Education to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and select others in order to develop leaders that have the ability to operate and creatively think in an unpredictable and complex world.
