the mother and her three children, in December last year in Khawaja Ajmer

Mirza, along with his friend Zubair, had allegedly murdered the
woman and her three children in cold blooded act of revenge. Zubair's mother,
Shabana, was allegedly involved in an illicit relationship with a man named
Jameel, the husband of the deceased woman and father of her children. This
relationship enraged Zubair, and resulted in the murder of Jameel's wife and
According to available details, on December 12, 2008, at
about 4.00pm, Zubair went to Jameel's house and asked his wife for the keys of
the upper portion of the house. When Seema Chachi (as the murderers referred to
the murdered woman) asked why he needed the key, he replied that he had
forgotten to take his trousers.
Once he received the keys, Zubair went to
the upper portion of the house, and called Nabeel upstairs as well. In the
meantime, 8-year old Osama also came upstairs chasing Nabeel, and asked him to
play with him. Instead, Nabeel immediately tied Osama's hand and stabbed him.

BIZTEK seminar calls for direct Senate election
Karachi: Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed has called for the election of
the Senate of Pakistan through direct vote, because "the current electoral
process had become a sham, in which seats are bought and sold, making it a
mockery of justice."
Justice (retd) Ahmed expressed his views on Thursday
at a national seminar on "Constitutional Reforms: Back to 1973 Constitution or a
New Consensus" at the Institute of Business and Technology
Justice (retd) Ahmed, who has earned respect and admiration of
the nation by refusing to take oath under Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO)
in October 1999 and then taking the cause of social justice that included
contesting election against General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, was candid in
demanding seats for industrial and agricultural labour to gradually break the
hold of the feudal lords in the National Assembly.
He suggested that the
power should be vested with the Senate and not with the assembly as that could
virtually monopolise the hegemony of a big province against the smaller ones,
creating a sense of deprivation that could harm the federation. "The President
should also be elected through popular votes to keep away the induction of the
Presidents who are embarrassment to the nation". He also reminded the audience
that autonomy to the provinces was essential for the progress of the country. He
criticised the forces who were trying to malign Islam and Muslims for earning
goodwill from the west.
Justice (retd) Nasir Aslam Zahid agreed with the
premise of Justice (retd) Ahmed but wondered how this could be implemented in
Pakistan where feudal and industrial lords and bureaucrats have occupied the
assemblies for such a long time and the middle class finds it difficult to enter
it. "We need social engineers to guide the country to safer path. Politicians
are plunderers. They lack vision," he said, castigating mainstream
Director Pakistan Study Centre, University of Karachi (KU)
Dr Syed Jaffer Ahmed proposed that the 1973 Constitution should not be aborted
totally. "The discrepancies and amendments by the military dictators or civilian
governments should be removed from the Constitution and new amendments that are
advantageous to the people should be added.
Veteran Journalist M.B. Naqvi
criticised the government for 'handing over' its economy to the IMF. "We have
agreed to their terms and conditions disregarding the disastrous results to our
country. Five million working age youth are ready to work every year. But there
are no jobs. The rulers need aid for their luxurious lifestyle. They do not care
about the people."
Earlier Dean Management and Social Sciences BIZTEK Dr
Muhammad Ali Siddiqui, in his welcome address, reminded the audience that the
1956 Constitution was the beginning of the ever widening rift between East and
West Pakistan that culminated in the secession of the Eastern wing. "It is
rather surprising that the amendments in 1973 Constitution were initiated by
