The Pakistan Nationalist Association’s Relief Group which has recently been created, for the first time for any disaster in Pakistan is now directly sending aid to the flood affected regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Namely Charsadda, Nowshera, Peshawar, Mingora and Mardan. The rest of the donations will be given to other organizations such as the Red Crescent because this is the first time the Relief Group will ever be arranging anything like this.

There will be a fundraiser in all our major cities in Pakistan on the 20th of August which has been well promoted and the first group of members from the Relief Group will hopefully go to Charsadda and Peshawar nearby areas to help the people in need on the 21st. This is a late response but the Relief Group was only recently organized and created.

Foreign Chapters

A fundraiser is being organized for the 22nd of August for the victims of the floods in Pakistan for the Pakistan Nationalist Association’s, Canada, USA, Saudi Arabia, UAE and UK Chapters. In the same way a fundraiser is being organized in Italy, Norway and France on the 24th of August and many members have already joined public Pakistani organizations in Italy to help in the aid effort. Australia is hosting a large fundraising event on the 27th of August. The foreign chapters with much fewer members but members with much more money for Pakistan provide donations that are very badly needed in this time. We have absolute trust in the community because these same donations have helped run the Pakistan Nationalist Association and its thought process for all this time.

The Relief Group

The Relief Group is a new organization and it is created by Lord Zerab Salamat himself and operates from the city of Karachi. It is a recent venture but a new beginning for Nationalism. The Relief Groups only action till now has been of providing free food aid to a poorer segment of society in Karachi and that has been a very small operation to no more than 50 people who are provided with basic items such as flour, salt, sugar and milk every week.

Please understand that this appeal for donations does not mean we are demanding that the donations be given only to the Pakistan Nationalist Association Relief Group but will also understand if the donations go to a local NGO with a good reputation for relief work and without any embezzlement of funds.

Also the Relief Group is still new and its capabilities will be tested for the first time in reality. There is still more that the organization needs in management so if there is anyone who is good at managing people they should make contact with the organization immediately.

The Relief Group has a very solid system of checks and balances. Every transaction will be recorded and the way the money is spent will be watched very efficiently. The Nationalists have always been enemies of corruption trying our level best to punish people who have spread it and we will make sure that it is especially not allowed in the Relief Group. Four witnesses and two others will be present along with documents when money is involved and at least two people must be there to record every single transaction in order to avoid errors and corruption. This process will continue even when the food, blankets, tents and other aid is being handed over to keep a check.

Increasing Publicity & newly found solutions to our problems

It is now common knowledge that some of the Nationalist Movements have gone public and are now using more aggressive promotion and advertising means to bring forth the message of nationalist ideology and thought process, yet this also means that we are now operating differently than we used to. This is where the confusion lies; the question everyone seems to be asking is whether some of the old rules and regulations still apply or are they completely outdated as a result of Organizational expansion.

Article 34 still applies!

There is a lot of confusion of late in our movements concerning our move to go public over the old rules and regulations and members are simply using their own judgement to decide which rules exist. Many of our members do not understand whether this means that Article 34 which was originally introduced to avoid danger to members of the organization after certain members received death threats in Canada and the United States is now obsolete.

First of all it must be understood that the differences and changes now taking place in the movement by no chance means that the entire organization’s past rules, regulations and policies are now going to be completely obsolete. This is especially in the case of laws that have been made to protect our members from serious injury or death. If any member is under the false impression that going public will make us safer and article 34 is completely not needed after the death threats the member is fooling himself.

Every individual is entitled to his or her views. The Pakistan Nationalist Association though having some core ideals and believing in them with absolute conviction encourages the ideal of debate and free thinking. But in every society there are those who are always eager to impose their thought on others and unwilling to accept anything contrary to their beliefs.  The fact is that such people do exist and they have natural ill intentions towards Pakistani people in general and especially those who are active in the community. The Pakistan Nationalist Association has very strong beliefs about foreign interference, National Interest, corruption and betrayal to the land and our members mostly being young and passionate can often easily be identified and marked by such dangerous individuals. These threats can often not even be traced, a clear example of this are the E mail threats some Nationalists had to endure in Canada.

Resolving our long existent Internet Crisis

Crescent Network Shield

In the past most of the abuse and threats received by members have been over the internet through E mail. The user sends a single hateful E-mail several times from the same account which is  cloaked by an ananomizer hiding his IP address. This makes it impossible for the individual to be traced. A similar software to the one that was used to avoid being traced after harassing our members is now available for use to members of the Pakistan Nationalist Association to maintain their own privacy when surfing the net.

Designed by Yousuf Khokar, Crescent Network Shield is a special software offering encrypted web browsing and is especially designed to ensure privacy and security while surfing the net. It is undoubtedly one of the best ways to protect your privacy over the internet. We strongly advise our members to use this software though there is no such rule making it mandatory. However this software will be used in all our meeting points where we have computers including Pak Mahal and Independence locations across Pakistan and it is also advised for personal usage when it comes to browsing the Internet.

New Rules and Regulation papers released

Nationalists must rest assured that many rules that existed in the past still exist today. The only issue has been that ever since the Pakistan Nationalist Association announced that it was going public our members have been forced to use their own judgement when it comes to the past Rules and Regulations.

This is not the case anymore because new Rules and Regulations papers have now been released after careful consideration over every rule by Leaders and followers alike. There is now no reason to be confused over past rules and new rules and old rules have been removed or updater while newer ones have also been added.

Most of the regulations deal with Organizational, operational and management changes but others specially those rules within the special section applying to foreign Chapters of the PNA deal with maintaining a decent amount of privacy about the movement that is enough not to draw unnecessary attention from the possibly more hostile elements of society while at the same time increasing our Public Relations effort. As a result there are surprisingly many old rules which were promised to be done away with by certain leaders that are still seen on the pages of the new papers. Furthermore as far as Nationalist Affairs are concerned members are simply advised to share limited information about themselves with people they don’t know well until they can be absolutely trusted. Furthermore a newly revised Article 31 and 32 states that calls related to Nationalist Affairs need to be made from and taken at home or at the recognized Pakistan Nationalist Association headquarters or locations in that country while information about Organization projects and future plans must only be discussed when members have sufficient privacy. This will cause some differences in our operation schedule and will bring less unnecessary public attention to our members. However it is in the best interests of our member’s security that these rules have been introduced.

The Pakistan Nationalist Association’s Canada Chapter is hosting a fundraiser for the victims of Pakistan’s worst flooding. Even though there are a limited number of members in the country it is necessary in a time of crisis for all of us to contribute and share the grief of our people. The funds will be given to an organization such as the TCF. This fundraiser will be hosted on the 22nd of August and members can invite anyone along if they wish. The location of the fundraiser will be decided in the coming days.

Please do everything you can to contribute and help people who have lost everything in this disaster. Every minor contribution, even a single paisa counts. We all have a part to play. We can choose to ignore the screams and difficulties of our people or contribute something positive to ease their pain.

The Patriot Magazine

Pakistani Nationalists in Pakistan, the Middle East and North America have an impeccable source of information for monthly details, information about Nationalist Movements and Pakistan related events across the World in the form of the Nationalist Monthly the very magazine this Website is directly related to. The Nationalist Monthly has slightly altered versions each for the Regions it is available in such as Pakistan, the Middle East and North America and adds a little local flavor in each considering Nationalist News and Events within those regions but has no version for consumption in Europe even though one of its most prestigious writers Feroz Nabi is from the UK.

Since the Nationalist Monthly has been the only Nationalist Magazine that is available for consumption outside Pakistan the direct result has been that for many years Europe always seemed to have been left behind from the sharing information and news about Nationalist activities. But this is not the case anymore. Britain the nerve center of Pakistani Nationalism in Europe has proven yet again that the Pakistani community is not asleep and several members of various Nationalist Organizations joined hands to work together on The Patriot a monthly magazine appealing to Pakistani Nationalists. This magazine is the brainchild of Samir Hayat who is arranging almost the entire funding for the project. As a result of these efforts The Patriot is now available to members of any Nationalist Organization in Europe.

Behind the Scenes: Samir Hayat

Samir Hayat was once a politically motivated individual and supported certain political parties with great zeal. He is now a die hard Nationalist. This is because Samir has personally seen the bloodshed some political parties can organize to further their own selfish desires and the corruption prevalent in Pakistan’s flawed government. He has seen how ministers and other important figures use their influence and illegally earned money to influence the judicial process when justice is sought against their money laundering and tax evasion. Samir noticed this for a long time but ignored it for a long time since he was a government employee but the change came when he learned a few years ago that some Pakistan Peoples Party Leaders are directly involved in Kidnap for Ransom cases and car snatching cases in Karachi which caused a major change of heart.

Today he is campaigning constantly for Nationalists to take a direct approach to such actions and believes that it is the responsibility of Pakistanis to stand for justice and to protect their country from being looted even if it means consequences from the corrupt leaders who are occupying prestigious posts in the government. He has taken up the pen as his trusty sword in this battle. Though the Patriot is a rather new investment by him another magazine known as the Inqilaab is also published in Pakistan from his funding.

Recently the Inqilaab and the August edition of The Patriot has featured a damning article written by him with evidence of certain PPP leaders involvement in crimes such as tax evasion, car and cell snatching, target killings and other forms of organized violence which has recently seen him shoot to fame in Nationalist Circles. He is also writing an article about the Mutahida Qawmi Movements hand in direct killings and disrupting the peace of the city. He believes in a more direct approach to dealing with the self interest and corruption prevalent in Pakistani politics. This direct approach is winning him immense support.

The Ideology behind The Patriot

The Patriot is much more supportive of the Left Wing Ideology of Pakistani Nationalism encompassing ideas such as “direct action.” However surprisingly Samir has managed to steer clear of Traditionalism believing that it is more of an ideology dedicated to living in fear. His views on this are clearly stated in The Patriot questions page and answers page where he is asked about the liberal thought process, publicity this will gain in circles outside the Nationalist Movements and the prevalent hatred against our movements. Samir therefore his answer a statement for the magazine.

“Yes there is hatred against Patriotic Pakistanis. The corrupt Leaders want to eliminate us and our direct stand against International interference in our countries affairs may cause problems with foreign terrorists as time has proven. But the real issue is if we stay silent there will never be anyone to speak out about the crimes. This is how these murderer politicians and traitors to Pakistan have been getting away with their crimes against our country for so many years but then these enemies of our country also repeat them without any fear of being caught. Nationalists are only about 10000-14000 people but the total population of Pakistan is about 180 Million. We cannot change the thinking of the 180 Million until we change. The Traditionalist way of doing things does not benefit Pakistan anymore. It is now time for direct action to bring down those who wrong our country.”

Whether it has Left Wing influences or not The Patriot is ready to make waves in the Nationalist community and the new thought process coming out in this magazine has proven to be very welcome indeed. The final objective of our movement is to ensure National Interest is the driving force behind Pakistan’s decisions and a sense of justice prevails with those who have wronged Pakistan punished for their crimes. The Patriot is another step towards that goal and is welcomed by every Nationalist no matter what his or her ideology.

This is a little early but since this has already been designed I decided to post it. I may be far away from my land and my people but I miss them every day. Long live our sacred land and may we see days of peace and prosperity. This is a smaller sized version. A proper wallpaper will also be made soon.
