    • Pasha sahib, I’m so grateful to you for joining in and writing the rejoinder. But sir, can you please elaborate on what exactly do we mean by “not to deal with them as they deal with their muslim brothers and sisters”. Because it is just not clear to me what exactly are saying. Is it a usual cry for hatred (which is already quite rampant in the world)? If we look around, we dont have an “agreed upon” way to deal with muslim brothers and sisters. We rape muslim sisters, we kill muslim brothers inthe name of spreading Islam, we loot muslims, we rob them under broad day light. What then are you talking about? Please educate.

    Flight of Capital from Pakistan—How to restore it?.
    Capital flight erodes the financial basis of a country. The role of banks and financial institutions in facilitating capital flight is almost acknowledged; we should review the role of banks and financial institutions in capital flight from Pakistan. There is no other economic condition that is so damaging to the poor as hyperinflation which at times go on for a pretty long period upto decades, but it’s nothing like illegal flight of capital which goes on for generations. It is a one-way flow of money from Pakistan to developed western countries which never comes back. There are several components of flight of capital—corruption and trade mispricing being on top; corruption continues to plague both the country and its ability to develop free and fair institutions to monitor and charge corrupt officials. The capital flight due to elements of Corruption, non-transparent privatization, tax evasion, and black economy (bribery, employment of professional criminals and commission from not only government projects but from hidden contracts with foreign companies) are leading Pakistan to more economic troubles. There is another serious issue of banks having written off loans of more than Rs250bn, which, obviously, would have flied to some other destination. The tax evaders are frightened of being caught are shifting their money to EU countries. Billions of dollars are flying out of Pakistan due to growing fears of terrorism and worsening economic situation are finding their way into London’s slumped property market. Politicians and senior army generals siphoning off huge funds and buying property abroad is not a secret. As per reports, Pakistani politicians and military officers have been investing in areas around the prestigious Park Lane and Mayfair in central London, which are historically the most sought after areas by the rich and famous Pakistanis. It is a tragedy that billions of dollars are finding their way out of Pakistan when remittances from expatriate community have almost dried up. Poor governance leads to and encourages and breeds corruption in a number of ways, for instance through bribery, extortion, nepotism, fraud and embezzlement. It reduces the efficiency on which the economy of a country depends upon, and by increasing the cost of investment, lowers the potential return. It also reduces the government’s resources and hence its capacity for investment. Corruption in Pakistan is unique because it occurs upstream; it has wings which encourage flight of capital rather than wheels which encourage reinvestment. National procurement systems handle a substantial share of total government expenditures in Pakistan. If the public procurement systems in Pakistan were improved, there would be substantial positive effects on public services, private enterprise, economic growth, and the legitimacy and effectiveness of public authority. The theft of funds and disappearance of resources out of Pakistan closely resembles what has been occurring in connection with Latin America throughout the 20th Century, in and out of Africa since the years of independence in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and in the Middle East long riven with wealth disparities and ideological shifts. We did not know how to meet our foreign exchange expenses beyond a certain day. Our debts are technically in default. investment is virtually non-existent, flight of capital is rampant, currency is depreciating its value very fast. There are other factors, too.

    Pakistan comes first and it is the responsibility of all of us to love this country and should be patriotic. The only secret is that if you are professional in your approach, if you are transparent, if you have no hidden agendas, people in the end will respect what you are doing and of course nothing pays better or helps better than producing results. Surely there are a lot of challengesin Pakistan but we should rember Rome was not built in a day; it takes a long time. But what this shows is that if you can have a clear approach, a clear vision, a clear strategy, and you execute it professionally and transparently, results can be achieved, even the worst cynics gradually come to appreciate this. Wise stewardship by country’s leadership helps reduce the severity of the economic cycles and GOOD governance best flourishes only in a corruption-free situation. The confidence of business and investor community in the economy also plays a significant role. If the businessmen and investors feel the government and central bank is managing the economy well, they continue to play their role to maintain economic health. On the other hand, if they lose confidence in government’s economic team, they begin to slow or even withdraw their investments which hit the economy hard. The businessmen who do this are not malicious, they are not trying to derail you, they just have genuine concerns and a different point of view. As long as you know what you are doing and you can explain what you are doing, the system would not obstruct you. To get rid of corruption and other allied evils the foremost requirement is proper education. It should be on top priority. To restore the confidence of the businessmen and investors ultimately leading to return of capital and further investment is transparency, honesty and strict enforcement of Rule of Law. To save our Society and our country, urgent and stringent measures need to be taken some of which are recommended as under:

    1. Education (At least 7 to 10 % of GDP may be reserved for education for next 10 years);

    2. Building strong institutions having no political interference;

    3. A national anti-corruption commission should be set up as an independent watchdog;

    4. Treating all ‘illegal’ money and property transactions in industrialized countries at par with drug money.

    5. Strict enforcement of Rule of law and safeguarding the interests and life of ordinary citizens;

    6. Political stability and ending ‘one man show’ in political parties;

    7. Ending all discretionary powers/ laws;
    8. Involving common man in diagnosing corrupt systems;

    9. Restoring foreign investors confidence (including overseas Pakistanis who have a huge role to play but are discouraged);

    10. The problem of corruption is quite severe at the lower judiciary and a system of alternative dispute resolution needs to be worked out urgently;

    11. Poverty alleviation and economic reforms should be focused on;

    12. Provision of energy (electricity, gas, petrol) to industry and agriculture at subsidized rates;

    13. Research and development in niche industries including agriculture be promoted;

    14. Effective management and steering of economic plans;

    15. Development of infrastructure, storage, shipping, ports; and

    16. Proper development of human resources.

    These are the building blocks for the bridge that will lead Pakistan into the better future Inshallah.

  16. There may be noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made sure good factors in features also.

  17. Asif Ali

    Shaukat Masood Zafar, very good and looking at the sorry state of Pakistan and watching the Kleptocrates, hoodlums, scamsters, feudals and industrialists raping not only the economy of this country but selling sovereignty and self-respect, we are nearing our doom.

    It is high time and the only solution is to REVOLT against the collaboration of Is i.e. Zardar, Gilani and Kiyani, what Chief of Army Staff you are when you cannot stop the Drone Attacks, what President and Prime Minister you are when you don’t know whats going on on the street, why people are committing suicides and why families are selling their kids to stuff their stomachs for food.

    If we don’t get rid of them soon, God forbid we will be another Somalia or Afghanistan very soon.


  18. Asif Ali

    Thanks a million Marvi for doing a wonderful job, and I think we need to introduce more topics I have a lot to tell people like “who is controlling this world” and what and who are doing to make this world suffer.

    I believe in the power of words, let’s get together and change this world and the way people think.

    Great Work….

  19. hamnah ayed

    how are you any different from others in the cohort of Anti- religious lobbyists. You think voicing the vice “so called liberal” views against Islam and our religious values is a show of courage? and an order of human rights? may be to rejoice in your own gang/ network but what about the archives of the Creator whose ruling you choose to shun so balatantly? I pray He guide you to be different, charismatic as a Mominah and more empowered with the knowledge which is supreme, that of the Quran, some day!

  20. Asif Ali

    Hamnah Ayed, very well said
