    Nope .Not the imported one .But our own some thing like that Ghatak .
    We cant fight a conventional war with Pakistan.
    They dont have anything to lose but we have a lots .So a heavy funding in stealth field will made them a ridiculous folks .

    Symbolism serves a purpose, hence I would like to see if a one or two seats are kept vacant for the Pakistani occupied areas of J&K. The future course of action is to lay bare what the "unrest" in Kashmir has always been "Islamist Terrorism" that has no political/nationalist component but only a religious supremacist militancy. Much like ISIS, those flags in valley were not just for show...

    Certainly looks like that. Precious few Pashtun, fewer Baloch, even fewer, to the point of disappearing, Sindhis. Ah, but there are 'Kashmiris'; can't speak a word of Kashur (I put in a bitter quatrain in Kashur as my sig for months, and NOT ONE of the 'Kashmiris' even figured out it was in Kashur).

    Without wasting your time, which is important to me, I stick to every small detail of what I had written.

    A compliment? Oh well, cheers, then.

    I don't get many compliments. Usually favourable remarks are confined to the sort of illustrated tourist brochure that says that the Kakatiyas of Warangal were great warriors and wise kings for 29 deathless pages of babu-generated prose.

    You know , everytime I read you , I'm reminded of this old phrase - Of what use is wisdom to the wise , if he doesn't profit from it ?

    I've often wondered that myself. Emphasis on the profit.

    Too bad .But somehow the Pashtuns from northern area has more acceptance in their establishments.Often they boast about their Pashtun culture .Baloch and Sindhis are like extincted species.
    But I think unlike us ,in PoK they dont have any protective clauses like our 370 .
    I dont know about them but few interactions with them in their forums pointed to this fact.

    Perhaps you mean that their territorial integrity (specifically any measure guarding against their territory being overrun by citizens of other parts) is not guaranteed. That is the main way in which their autonomy has been undermined.

    Much better than PDF is a number of fora on Facebook where representatives of those regions find freedom of expression - albeit behind anonymous identities.

    It seems their territorial integrity had been already undermined .
    There was an article in Hindu about this ,a lots of Punjabis and others settled in PoK.
    Now they are preparing for making GB as their province .

    Yes, that is largely correct.
