Raja Mujtaba

After graduating from college, I joined Pakistan Army and was commissioned in a Tank Regiment.   I am a veteran of the Indo-Pakistan war. After leaving the Army, I joined IT as a profession. I was hired by Kuwait Air Force And Air Defence as an Adviser to computerize its entire operation.   Here I was the Chief Coordinator of the Project, Kuwait Automated Support System (KASS).   It was a state-of-the-art leading-edge technology where we established over 500 online terminals network with dedicated voice and data communications. It had Satellite linkups to connect with other systems and track the inventory movement for KAF & AD.   On this project, I was coordinating with the US Navy, IBM World, AT&T, and Martin Marietta for the development, deployment, and operation of the KASS.  Writing has always been a passion for me, been writing for 25 years for various newspapers and periodicals. Now for the last four years, I have formed my virtual Think Tank, Opinion Maker.  Here we have some renowned writers from Pakistan and abroad who contribute regularly that's helping the world opinion in some way.  I am a keen golfer may not be a good one but play on a daily basis. I am also fond of using the camera to picture nature and people.

1971: Sarmila Bose Salutes the Paksitan Army

There is much for Pakistan to come to terms with what happened in 1971. But the answers don’t lie in unthinking vilification of the fighting men who performed so well in the war against such heavy odds in defence of the national policy. Rather, in failing to honour them, the nation dishonours itself.

Who is Playing with Balochistan?

By Hamid Waheed: What wonders me is why the army is sleeping and not projecting its sincere efforts for common Balochi. Are they too simplistic or they have no knowledge of perception management. The efforts of new political setup are all excellent measures but hopefully will take into consideration and reinforce the common Baloch agenda already in ruin for the last 60 years and will not only find solutions to support feudal culture.

Drawing Parallels between two Afghan Invasions

Upon development of consensus between former Soviet President Gorbachev and the Politburo leadership, that the former super power (Soviet Union) could no longer sustain the heavy expenditures of the Afghan war in terms of human cost as well as the financial effects, the Communist regime decided to withdraw its forces from Afghan territory in 1988.

Off The Net: 11 Steps To Create World Class Terrorists

By Raja G Mujtaba: . If the US does not listen, Pakistan Air Force must be instructed to shoot any violation of Pakistan airspace. This would build more trust in the federation and earn a global respect. If not done, the 11 steps mentioned here are a clear recipe for disaster.


By Air Commodore Iqbal: Yet once again, American calculus is faulty; premium placed on India is unrealistically inflated. Indian government would once again avail the opportunity and accrue short term benefits. Long-time sufferer is a common rural Indian, destined to live in poor social security and food insecurity environment for an indefinite time. For quite some time, stability of this region is likely to stay hostage to reinforced Indian arrogance.

Obama’s Conflicting Policy in South Asia

By Sajjad Shaukat: Most alarming point in this respect is that Indian sinister strategic designs under the pretext of so-called Islamic terrorism are not only creating obstacles in the East-West cultural cooperation, but are also taking the world to the brink of clash of civilizations.

Obama’s Fall

By Dr Muzaffar Iqbal: The US foreign policy needs a U-turn; domestically, a growing class of poor and disempowered have nothing bright on the horizon and this leads to deep fractures. But to open their eyes, the US politicians from both side of the divide need something much greater than a political victory or defeat and it is hard to see how this will come about in the near future.

American War Mongers Talk of Peace and Human Rights

It is paradoxical that the US notorious for worst human rights violations and being the biggest violator of law today stands up as a pleader of human rights and upholder of law. Its past gory acts are too many to recount. It has turned Iraq and Afghanistan into killing grounds where over 1.6 million have been hacked to death; millions injured critically, tens of thousands rendered homeless, widowed and orphaned. Thousands have suffered gruesome tortures in US run infamous jails, which have so far not been closed despite world protest and commitment given by Obama. George W. Bush and his team of neo-cons along with Tony Blair should have been tried as war criminals for the crimes committed against humanity and that too under false pretexts…Brig Asif Haroon Raja

ISI: The Invisible Warriors

The misdeeds of anti-ISI agencies are known to every one. In that respect, Ramzi Yousaf who was well-aware of the activities of the American and Israeli secret agencies had stated in the US court in 1997, "You are butchers, liars, and hypocrites. You keep on talking about terrorism to the media, but behind closed doors you support terrorism".

Pak-US Strategic Dialogue: Bridging the Trust Deficit

The maiden test of this dialogue would be the restoration of the trust, which somehow has been the most desired constituent of the bilateral relationship of both countries. Moreover, if this exclusive round of strategic talk was able to restore the trust, how long would it last? This of course would be a test of our diplomacy, but more than this, the dictates of the future strategic interests of both countries, especially the US interest, as the sole super power. Indeed, over the years, the vicissitudes in the Pak-US relationship and discriminatory behaviour of the West has taught us to be realistic in the growth of its future alliance. At the US end, it is felt that its strategic partnership with the India has milked it more than gratifying US strategic intents.

Changing demeanour of USA towards Pakistan

On their recent visit to Pakistan, Gordon Duff and Jeff Gates talking on TV show and addressing various other forums, minced no words. They were very critical of Indo-Israeli Nexus that’s not only destroying the US but is seen as a grave threat to world peace.

PAKISTAN: No more “Do More”

Pakistan has delivered more than expected from her as a war ally and above all as a ?friend? and it?s high time for the US to remember that there will be No More 'Do More'. After all the puppets are puppets and the human beings are human beings.

Indio-Israeli Nexus & Saudi Arabia

Wahhabi Islam, which originated in Saudi Arabia, is the primary religious movement behind extremist Islam, including al-Qaida and the Sunni Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Raman confirmed, "There has been a long history of links between jihadi terrorist elements in India and Saudi Arabia.

Upcoming Pakistan-US strategic dialogue in Washington

the US should reconcile with the hard reality that it messed up in starting a senseless war on terror to make the world safe. In case the US is seriously interested in peace in the region and safe and honourable exit from Afghanistan, it should get out of the spell of deadly Indo-Israeli nexus and stop listening to self serving advises given by the duo. It should listen to Pakistan rather than dictating terms. Pak Army and ISI should be given a free hand to plan and execute the final phase. The US will stand to gain by relying on Pakistan since unlike India it is not a fair weather friend

AF-PAK:Towards Pak-Afghan Harmonization

Besides, sharing common values, culture, and comparable stakes, both countries have a history of interdependence. Foreign interferences, influences, and imperialism cannot force the people to think differently. Pakistan visualizes a peaceful, stable, and economically affluent Afghanistan. It also wishes the Afghanistan freed from the foreign interferences and forays with an ethnically cohesive society. The wish for a stable Afghanistan is the collective voice of 180 million people of Pakistan

Drug money used as a geopolitics weapon by CIA-RAW-Mossad

RAW in alliance with RAAM and with active backing of CIA has also set up 70 training camps in Afghanistan closer to Pakistan border where Chechens, Uzbeks, Tajiks, Afghans, Baloch and FATA rebels are trained and launched.


The term New World Order was in wide popular use in the early 1990s. Then it gradually disappeared from the scene, and has since been hardly heard of. This is quite in line with the guileful game plan of its originators. They are having their new order methodically enforced in every country, while the people, although tormented by the ever worsening economic, social and political conditions around them, remain ignorant of the real villains and their game.

AF-PAK: Some thoughts on war on terror

With a world in the hands of folks like Bush or Obama, Gordon Brown or Tony Blair and the EU folks, Merkel and Sarrdoozie of France, anything with signs of human life and intelligence is always welcome. Italy's prime minister spends more money on lesbian prostitutes than an American senator can steal in a lifetime. Imran Khan is a saint in comparison.

Battle for Marjeh – the Taliban Strong-hold

Taliban are well-versed in this game of fighting in the desert regions of South and the rugged mountains, for the last thirty years. They are the die-hard freedom fighters, motivated, self-assured and confident of victory against the occupation forces. Time is on their side. Their strategy for the battle of Marjeh therefore can be easily envisaged: They would rather hold Marjeh lightly, with a maximum of 2-3000 die-hard fighters, who would fight to the last man, killing as many of coalition forces, as possible.....General Beg


Anne Paterson: If she has any integrity and any self respect left she should stand before the Pakistan people and ask for their forgiveness for the drone murders, the extra judicial killings, the black operations, the kidnapping, torture and rendition of its citizens, the water-boarding, the bribery, the corruption and, not least of all, the injustice handed out to Dr Aafia Siddiqui and her family....Yvone

The Military Dimension of Indo-China Relations

China is a super power in waiting and India is vying to be a regional power. For the sake of regional and global peace it is important that India manages to contain its ambitions so that the two countries can coexist in a manner that brings peace and prosperity to the Region. For that it is important for India to avoid a confrontational stance.

This Ambassador Is A Sore In US-Pakistani Relationship

“I have a challenge for Ms Patterson today. I challenge her to repeat every single word she said back then and swear it is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth … America’s reputation is lying in the lowest gutters in Pakistan at the moment and it can’t sink any lower,” says a British journalist about Anne W. Patterson. She lies. She Bribes. She Bullies. And she misleads. She needs to be removed.

India’s ‘Secular Terrorism’

No doubt, violence against the other communities has been used by Hindu fundamentalists as a normal practice since partition, but intensity of the anti-Muslim and anti-Christian bloodshed in the last decade coupled with the dissemination of Hindutva has displayed India’s ‘secular terrorism.’

Case against Aafia Siddiqui begins to unravel

Siddiqui vanished in Karachi, Pakistan with her three children on March 30, 2003. The next day it was reported in local newspapers that she had been taken into custody on terrorism charges.


We are all impressed by your long tenure in the service of the people of the United States. Such selfless service needs to be applauded. You have taken over the CIA in tough times--perhaps the CIA's hardest years ever. It is a matter of public record that American commitments to Pakistan in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 90s were hollow. To this day--Pakistanis wonder how UN resolutions on Kashmir remain unimplemented on the excuse that they were the docile kind....

Indo-China: Rift Widens

India which has openly signed a number of mutual agreements with China, calling the latter a strategic partner, has been playing a double game with Beijing by acting upon a secret strategy.
