Shandur Polo Festival 7th to 9th July

Posted by sadiahaidarig on June 26, 2010

Shandur Polo Festival Shandur Polo Festival is going to be held on 7th to 9th July in Shandur. Shandur polo ground is located bout 3738 meter an above sea level and lies midway between Chitral and Gilgit. The most beautiful place of the world Shandure where trout fishing, mountaineering, trekking, hiking and of course, horse riding. Crystal clear lakes, snow covered mountains, alpine flowers and vast stretches of green grass, are added attractions.

This three days polo tournament will be organized by the Gilgit and Chitral polo clubs and Sarhad Corporation Tourism. The tournament will be held on Shandur Pass, the highest polo ground in the world at 3,700 meters (the pass itself is at 3,800m).Shandur create a center of attention for visitors to experience the traditional polo tournament which is being held since 1936 on annual basis in July between the teams of Chitral and Gilgit.

The festival also includes Folk music, Paragliding, dancing, bonfire and a camping village is set up. Gilgit, Chitral and Skardu have always played the game of polo closest to its original form. In the past, local Khans, Mirs and Mehtars were the patrons of the game. At times, more than 50% of the annual budget of their principalities would be spent on supporting the game.

Field polo requires two teams of 4 players. A full-size of large grass field is 300 yards long, and either 200 yards or 160 yards wide if there are side boards—these are generally 6″ high. There are tall collapsible goalposts at each end of the field spread 8 yards apart. The object of the game is to score the most goals by hitting the ball through the goal. Polo teams change direction after each goal in order to compensate for field and wind conditions. Players score by driving a small white plastic or wooden ball into the opposing team’s goal using a long-handled mallet.

 A polo game has periods of play, known as chukkas (also chukkers or chuckers). This term originated in 1898 and is derived from Hindi chakkar from Sanskrit chakra “circle, wheel” or duration of rounds (compare chakka). Depending on the rules of the particular tournament or league, a game may have 4, 6 or 8 chukkas; 6 chukkas or rounds are most common usually, each chukka or round is 7 minutes long, but some games are played in shorter chukkas. Between chukkas, the players switch to fresh ponies. In less competitive polo leagues, players may play only two ponies, alternating between them.

 A game first played in Persia (Iran) at dates given from the 5th century BC, or much earlier, to the 1st century AD and originated there, polo was at first a training game for cavalry units, usually the king’s guard or other elite troops. Polo found popularity in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Pakistan and the United States of America. James Gordon Bennett, Jr. organized the first polo match in the United States at Dickel’s Riding Academy at 39th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City.

During the early part of the 20th century, under the leadership of Harry Payne Whitney, polo changed to become a high-speed sport in the United States, differing from the game in England, where it involved short passes to move the ball toward the opposition’s goal. Whitney and his teammates used the fast break, sending long passes downfield to riders who had broken away from the pack at a full gallop. Polo is now an active sport in 77 countries, and although its tenure as an Olympic sport was limited to 1900–1939, in 1998 the International Olympic Committee recognized it as a sport with a bona fide international governing body, the Federation of International Polo. The World Polo Championship of Polo is held every three years by the Polo. But Shandur Polo is held every year on same dates in summer.

 Like every year, a large number of foreign and local audiences are expected and the national airlines will charter special flights for the occasion from all around the country to Chitral. An estimated 10,000 national and international people attended this event in 2009 and similar numbers are expected this year.

Establishment of festival announced the special arrangement for national and international visitors. An official of Sarhad Corporation Tourism told that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Sports, Culture & Tourism Syed Aqil Shah will request President Asif Ali Zardari and other international guests to attend the event as chief guest.

This type of events shows and proves that Pakistan is stable, moderate and peace making country and Pakistanis are peace loving people and nobody specialy outside infulance can’t bulldoze our peace.

He is alive again for new mission

Posted by sadiahaidarig on June 16, 2010

Osama bin laden is animate. The original name of Osama bin laden is “Tim Ousman” under cover CIA agent .He was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in 1957 into a Yemeni family, Osama bin Laden left Saudi Arabia in 1979 and join CIA to fight against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda was started by a Jewish agent who learnt Arabic and Quran. During the Afghan conflict, Osama is also reported to have established many terrorist-training camps. Ahmad Shah Masood (Loin of Panjshir) Anti –Islam resistant leader of Afghanistan killed by Osama .After killing Masood he had cleared the road for others to enter into this region. Once again he came out from his grave and in the head line of the media. He is in the ring now. How he will appear again, again and again?

Think is there no al-Qaeda and no Osama bin laden. It is a propaganda used by super powers to destroy Islamic countries one by one. According to this statement all Muslims world and special those who are living in Asia shall ready for new assignment from first world. We don’t know what the philosophy is and psychology behind this propaganda by seculars.He is the main character of the main drama against Muslim community.

We should become in unity other wise we do not finish it easily. Because when we do unite the counter to there end will start ticking that day.

Few month before Fox News, CNN and BBC channel broadcast the footage and picture of Osama Laden on 25 Jan bin 2010?

Numerous audio and video statements purporting to be from Bin Laden have been released, but their authenticity has been continually questioned.

Bin Laden has issued around 40 statements since 9/11, and many include clear contemporaneous date references and certainly are faked.

What do you think that footage which is broadcast in Jan 2010 was new? Obviously not Osama was dead in Afghanistan on 2002 .His terrible death was confirmed by FBI’s counter-terrorism chief Dale Watson, White House, CNN and BBC in 2002 during the period of W. Bush former president of America.

But one thing in the footage which was broadcasting on the news channels was same as the footage of 2001, 2002, and 2007…….. None of them can be proven to be authentic. Certainly of them can be shown to be almost fake .

Osama is looking in the video as old as 2001.The authenticity of all of the videos is questioned by David Ray Griffin, a former theology professor and member of the 9/11 Truth Movement, which also questions mainstream, accounts of the attack on the World Trade Centre. He is operating these tapes of al-Qaeda and some other forces an interest in manipulating it to look like current tapes. It is easy to digitally manipulate voice to say anything. Everyone can change months, years, tape vowels, syllables and change it.

Mr Griffin calls it “Blackbeard: the terrorist tape”. Bin Laden’s trademark grey beard has been replaced with a neat, jet-black beard, and there are a number of frames in the video, Where Bin Laden carries on speaking but the picture of him freezes.

Its validity is questioned by the former agent of CIA. Robert Baer dismisses the suggestion of a conspiracy by Western intelligence but thinks that al-Qaeda may have faked the video.

The world has been changed into technology world. You can generate every thing easily by technology. Even you can get the universe with technology without it you can not conquered the whole world .All the super power use it for their interests.

There would be a number of people involved in this propaganda and word of it would have spread by now.

According to “MSNBC”The report that he was suffering form Diabetes, Hepatitis C, and an “untreated lung complication” and would have had to “walked unmolested” out of the craggy mountains of Afghanistan under the surveillance of “thousands” of special operations troops with at least one kidney dialysis machine in pull. The report also does not mention that electricity to power dialysis machines may be difficult to generate on the move through the mountains of Afghanistan.
There are about 30 close associates of Osama bin Laden in Al Qaeda, including his most trusted and personal bodyguards, his family members and some Taliban friends attended the funeral ceremony after his death. A volley of bullets was also fired to pay tribute to their leader.

that it was looked The Taliban source who claims to have seen Osama bin Laden’s face before burial said “pale … but calm, relaxed and confident.”

The other source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his last rest place was made as per his Wahabi belief. He is buried in Tora Bora.

Osama bin Laden had no feelings of guilt before death. But he was proud that he succeeded in his mission of igniting awareness amongst Muslims about hegemonistic designs and conspiracies of “pagans” against Islam his close friends told.

Bin Laden held the view that the sacrifice of a few hundred people in Afghanistan was nothing, as those who laid their lives in creating an atmosphere of resistance will be adequately rewarded by Almighty Allah, “Taliban sources said.”

It is mystery that how the dead man alive again and moving around us. May be his soul is wondering around the world. We believe that Osama was killed by drown attacks and heavy bombardment .So what is the new propaganda against Muslims. With our economy and development disaster, our deficit and national debt skyrocketing, our infrastructure crumbling, killing of innocent civilian and our military stretched to the limits, Pakistani must ask themselves and from American’s policy makers, and realize them Osama and his agenda finished with him.

Is this one man really worth it? Especially considering the real possibility that he may already be dead? Or is it possible that the government, with the help of the mainstream media, is scaring the Pakistani people into prolonging a war that can only have one outcome – exiting Afghanistan?
