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.

It seems that Canada always has its bit of news. At least that’s the case ever since the young kid became a leader! The same person who has become controversial after his election being spoken of proudly by a large section the community but at the same time taking the anger of the traditionalists over his liberal policies and out of the box ideas. It seems that this person is planning to write a book.

The articles though gaining limited attention anywhere other than the Nationalist Organizations were just warming him up. Havi does not plan to stop writing articles but he definitely plans to start writing a book. Although this piece of art is still in the works I had the luck to take a look at it on Havi’s own personal invitation over a can of Pakola.

The name of Havi’s venture is Badal. Badal means revenge in Pashto and refers to the Pashtuns right to take revenge. This creates a cycle of violence sometimes. The title fits the situation because a young illiterate boy whose house is destroyed in an American airstrike killing his family seeks revenge against the Pakistan army after the Taliban use the airstrike to indoctrinate him against those that protect the very Nation the USA does not want to see prospering.

The book obviously takes a look at how Pakistani people feel about the American War on Terror where Pakistan is being used a scapegoat and how many Pakistanis are tired of the corrupt government of Pakistan and its bad work. But it also looks at the problems that have caused an organization such as the Taliban to be planted and used in the massacre of innocent Pakistanis. An organization that actually only exists because of interference in other countries of the USA itself who created it.

It also looks at plight of civilians and even the problems and mistakes both the government and army made in this war to eradicate the Nation’s enemies who use USA as an excuse to kill innocent Pakistanis. It deals with a lot of emotions and lots of different people from bureaucrats to criminals to military men to Taliban levy troops to the average common people who are affected with the insurgency.

The books takes the reader across many insurgency struck locales from Ladda village in South Waziristan which is today known to be the center of the Taliban insurgents to large city like Rawalpindi which is the general headquarters of the Pakistan Army.

No one can say for sure how this book will look in the end because it is still under writing but we know one thing. That until the creative and liberal mindset of Havi keeps running the Nationalist community in Canada will always be in the news and will have something good for us to cheer about.

It is still sad that the growing influence of Pakistani Nationalism there is still no real estimate about the total number of Pakistani Nationalists in the country and those abroad the country to support it with their funds and money and plans to improve it.

How can we do anything for Pakistan when we do not even know our own total strength and even worse how much we are affecting the hearts and minds of the Pakistani people? Statistics and proper information is a very important if Pakistani Nationalist Organizations are to achieve any single goal.. The little information about what we are doing why we are doing it and what the real result is is what causes the doubts in the new Nationalists who have recently taken oath and entered our circles. The new Nationalists should be properly briefed and a common goal for all of us has to be established for each piece of work each person is doing.

We need to start from getting proper information about our members and the exact number of members in each Nationalist Organization. For this each one of the Nationalist Organizations will have to share information. All Nationalist Organizations need to form a mission or group that can find information through surveys and other such material.

To complete anything the first step is finding our total number and keeping an exact record of our number at all times. With estimates by different groups putting our total number from 8000-14000 across the World it is clear that all Nationalists are not united and the different organizations follow their own agenda. This is not only the friction between Left Wing, Military Wing/Associated and Right Wing groups but also in between these groups. All Nationalist groups need to work together to get the exact figure so that we can estimate how we can work for Pakistan and whether we are making a difference on Pakistan and how.

Current Leaders for Various PNA Chapters and Factions

By Feroz Nabi

The news that a Public Wing of the Pakistan Nationalist Association has finally been hosted has been the subject of much talk lately. However there is still much confusion about the recent election and many Nationalists barely know who their leaders are.

A leader who is responsible for the day to day running of affairs will be chosen every 2 years in each of the respective countries. Therefore for the various chapters the next election will be held in early January 2012. On the other hand the Supreme Leader is someone who is known for ultimate sacrifice for Pakistan and will be elected by every member of the Pakistan Nationalist Association and must be a member of the organization for over 2 years. He will be responsible for the overall running of the organization and will run affairs in Pakistan.

This is a list of the leaders who have been elected for the main chapters of our organization and their background:

Zerab Salamat, Supreme Leader of the Pakistan Nationalist Association.

Zerab Salamat is a name that has become a legend in the Nationalist Circles. The entire Movement for the Restoration of Pakistani Nationalism was his brainchild. Almost this entire movement is run from the money that comes from him and he is responsible for hosting Pakistani Nationalist events across not only Pakistan but across the UAE and Saudi Arabia as well. This has brought him immense support and recognition.

Zerab is reputed to be an ace with his AK-101 and is responsible for the death of two Taliban traitors to the Motherland having joined the army in order to take part in Operation Raah E Rast. It was his patriotism that led him to the field of battle. Other than displaying his patriotism by putting his life on the line for his Country he has done the same by building a school and managing it in interior Sindh. Zerab is also revered by minorities as he advocates for a Secular Pakistan where all are treated as equal yet is still considered religious and prays 5 times a day.

Zerab is most well known for his emotions. Buying food for a poor woman and her children in a Kachi Abadi of Karachi and making sure they get their bread two times a day daily, giving a thousand Rupees to a beggar at Sohrab Goat while at the same time losing his temper and screaming and slapping a person at Karsaz who was insulting Pakistan despite eating and living in it, crying over the death of a Captain in the Pakistan Army in the field of battle are all events that are well remembered by the community and spoken of about him.

By profession Zerab is actually a doctor owns a Medical Institute in the heart of Karachi that gives free healthcare sometimes. However being multi-talented he is also known as a very tough soldier who has fought in Swat and as an example of Pakistani Nationalism. On the other hand Zerab has been actively fighting corruption and corrupt government officials. He is one of the rare people to have done this successfully. Zerad also knows 7 different languages spoken within the boundaries of Pakistan.

Being a perfectionist he seeks to achieve perfection, after all he is such an immense figure in Pakistani Nationalism and spoken of by all Nationalists with pride he serves as an example to the entire community.

*More information about him has not been shared on his own request.

Haavi Zayed, President of the Pakistan Nationalist Association, Canada Chapter:

Having suffered major terrorist death threats from Hindutvadi terrorists in Canada and USA over a mistaken identity of another Nationalist and from Taliban terrorists in Pakistan over his direct assault over whose interests they are serving may have forced one of the youngest Nationalist Leaders to be quieter and more careful about what he shares and who he shares it with but it has certainly not reduced his Nationalism but increased it.

Perhaps this is the reason he has been elected the President of Pakistan Nationalist Association’s Canada Chapter. Haavi is one of the most active people to be floating the idea of a Public Wing of Pakistan Nationalist Association which has finally been successful. His articles featured in the Magazine the Nationalist Monthly in Canada have been very famous and cover subjects such as Minority Rights, the intense Foreign Interference in Pakistan’s affairs, hypocrisy presented by such Nations and their interests, Pakistani music and of course news related to Pakistani Nationalism. This site has many articles by him for the reason there are very few writers. He is also writing a book.

Other than this he is a perfect graphic designer and has designed the logos and promos for over 12 Nationalist groupings for a much lower price than it would cost them otherwise. This is one of the means he is currently earning. However instead of investing the limited money he earns on his family which needs it he has invested if not all of it then much of it on Pakistan, namely the school for poor children in Gulshan E Iqbal. To add to this he has the rich experience of social work and has arranged several Pakistani Events for Nationalist Wings in Canada.

Despite this experience Haavi has been reluctant to take on the position as a leader. However after being pushed by the Nationalist community he has taken his position as President of the Canada Wing. He has become an extremely famous figure due to both his work and his social nature.

Tariq Ziyad, President of the Pakistan Nationalist Association, UAE Chapter:

This is one of the few leaders using a traditional Urdu name who has been elected but Tariq has some very strong beliefs about the use of the Urdu language when using names and has not adopted Hazai at all even to make the language survive.

Tariq Ziyad is known to promote Urdu literature and is planning to release a book of Ghazal’s himself. He works in a Computer firm and can type in Urdu with a good speed. However Tariq’s beginnings are extremely humble and he has come to achieve the current position with effort alone. He believes in hard work and loving ones country which had actually led him to the Nationalists in the first place.

Tariq has also hosted many get-togethers and is very involved in trying to create Nationalism among the youth. He is involved with a number of public aid agencies and humanitarian outfits such as the Citizens Foundation and the Sufferers Witness.

Tariq is fluent in English, Arabic and Farsi other than his remarkable Urdu. He has utilized these languages to host events appealing to these groups and has created a lot of friends for the Pakistani Nationalists amongst many Arabs and Iranians who have common interests and goals as we do. He is also sending a great deal of money to schools in Rural Sindh and Balochistan. Tariq is also very vocal against the terrorists waging war against the Pakistani Nation.

Shabir Awan, President of the Pakistan Nationalist Association, UK Chapter:

Shabir Awan is known to be very rich and he is one of the few people who have utilized this richness in the best way possible. By giving his country all he can. He is as cunning as a politician and knows their mindset through years of dealing with them. This is why when he sends money to Pakistan he ends up paying nothing to corrupt government officials who stand to take money out of even what is meant for aid projects.

After the death of his sister in artillery bombardment during the Kargill war Shabir has worked tirelessly worked to promote Pakistani interests and worked to make Pakistan a better place to live in. He is actively supporting with his generous wealth many business growth programs and education programs across the country. One of the programs is very famous where farmers from Sindh and Balochistan are being paid for sending their children to school. He has also undertaken the reconstruction of many schools and healthcare units in Rural areas.

Shabir is also a believer in the idea that it is the responsibility of every Pakistani to support his country industry and people. As such he is trying to promote these ideas in the youth through a program called “Live for Pakistan, Die for Pakistan” a campaign he started himself. It has been very well received by a section of the youth but needs better promotion.

* Shabir is isolated in nature and doesn’t want his good acts to be known by everyone. Therefore further information about him is not shared. This man is more commonly known by his Nationalist name which is not being shared too.
