Miandad wants more power for Pakistan coach after rout
Sat Oct 28, 2006 11:26 AM BST

KARACHI, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Former test captain Javed Miandad has called for the Pakistan team coach and selectors to be given more power after the side's humiliating 124-run defeat against South Africa in the Champions Trophy.

Pakistan were dismissed for just 89 runs in the must-win tie against South Africa, who moved into the semi-finals with the win in Mohali, India on Friday.

"The cricket board must give more authority to the coach and selectors to have a say in all matters to reduce the influence of the players," Miandad told Reuters on Saturday.

Miandad, who played 124 tests, 233 one-day internationals and coached the team three times after his retirement in 1996, said there was also a need for appointing a former player as an advisor.

"The West Indies have done well since Clive Lloyd was named team advisor. We should also follow their example to support the coach," the 49-year-old added.

Miandad bemoaned that successive boards had failed to put an emphasis on team discipline and this had encouraged a culture of "player power".

"What happened against South Africa is a culmination of different episodes in the last few months which exemplify the urgent need to address disciplinary issues," he said.

"The players need to learn from their mistakes and be more professional and committed in their approach to the game."

The other incidents were reported from Dera Bugti on Friday, where three power supply towers were blown up, suspending power supply to the Dera Bugti area. The assailants planted explosive devices close to the electricity towers between Pesh Bogi and Tali Mad areas, which damaged the towers badly.

Un fortunately, a Wapda team, which was going to the site of one of the explosions met an accident. The jeep carrying a Wapda officer, Ali Abbas Rizvi, and a lineman, whose name could not be ascertained immediately, fell into a ditch, while negotiating a sharp turn near Sui. Both the Wapda men were injured in the accident.

Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated with religious zeal

ISLAMABAD: The nation celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr on Wednesday with religious enthusiasm and solemn pledge to make Pakistan a truly enlightened Muslim welfare state.

Marking the culmination of Ramazan, the faithful started their day with Fajr prayers and later they thronged to offer special Eid prayers. A huge number of big and small congregations were held across the country to thank Almighty Allah by bowing their heads besides asking for His blessings, welfare, prosperity and well-being of the whole Muslim Ummah.

The Ulema and religious scholars highlighted the philosophy and importance of Ramazan and Eid-ul-Fitr. They called upon the faithful to promote the lofty principles of Islam for peace, tolerance, forbearance, co-existence and harmony in the light of the Holy Qur'aan and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

The largest congregation of the capital was held at the Faisal Mosque where President Gen Pervez Musharraf and a large number of people including federal ministers, parliamentarians, diplomats and other notables of the society offered prayers.

Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz offered prayers at the Prime Minister Staff Colony Mosque and offered prayers for Pakistan's progress, prosperity, strength and unity of the Muslim Ummah. Hundreds of faithful joined the prime minister in offering special prayers for the Kashmir and Palestine cause, early rehabilitation of the earthquake-affected people, and welfare and success of the Pakistani nation in all spheres.

People from all walks of life attended the Open House reception to exchange Eid greetings with Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz at the PM House.

In utter contrast to the otherwise quiet roads of the capital, those leading to the Aiwan-e-Sadr and the Prime Minister House remained unusually busy, with visitors coming in to exchange Eid greetings.

The guests for the PM House included federal ministers, ministers of state, advisers, politicians, parliamentarians, federal secretaries, religious leaders, diplomats, senior military and civil officials, literary figures, editors, columnists, businessmen and elite of the city.

President Gen Pervez Musharraf and First Lady Begum Sehba Musharraf also visited the PM House. The prime minister also called on the president at the Aiwan-e-Sadr and exchanged Eid greetings.

They remained with the president for some time and discussed matters of national interest.

Later, the ambassadors based in Islamabad along with their spouses called on President Musharraf at the Aiwan-e-Sadr to exchange Eid greetings. Federal ministers, ministers of state, parliamentarians, senior government and military officers, religious scholars and businessmen from across the country were also present at the reception.

The biggest congregation in Rawalpindi was held at Liaquat Bagh where thousands of the faithful offered Eid prayers. Similar congregations were also held in other major and small cities and villages in the country. The faithful exchanged Eid greetings and visited the graves of their loved ones.

Meanwhile, the Islamabad Capital Territory Police chalked out special arrangements to ensure security of people on Eid-ul-Fitr. More than 1,300 personnel were deployed in parts of the capital city to ensure security of life and property of the people on Eid.

At Eidgahs, mosques and Imambargahs security cover was provided by policemen in plain clothes as well as in uniform. The policemen were also deployed at parks and recreational places besides major hotels of the capital. A large number of policemen were kept in reserve in case of any untoward happening or eventuality.

Like other parts of the country, Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated with religious fervour in Lahore on Wednesday. Hundreds of thousands of faithful offered Eid-ul-Fitr prayers with religious fervour and solemnity at over 500 mosques, parks and open places in the provincial capital.

Punjab Governor Lt-Gen (retd) Khalid Maqbool and Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry offered Eid-ul-Fitr prayers along with a large number of faithful at the historic Badshahi Mosque.

The city roads saw bumper-to-bumper traffic at Chand Raat but wore a deserted look on Eid day as majority of non-Lahorites left for their home towns to celebrate the gala with their families. The law enforcement agencies adopted strict security measures.

Eid-ul-Fitr was celebrated with traditional zeal and religious fervour in Balochistan on Wednesday. The day dawned with special prayers in mosques and Eidgahs for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of the country and unity of Muslim Ummah in all the districts of the province.

In the provincial capital, Eid congregations were held in different parts of the city, however, the big and noticeable congregation was observed in Eidgah Toghi Road where most of the city notables including Balochistan Governor Owais Ahmed Ghani offered the Eid prayer.

Poison liquor kills 23 in central Pakistan

MULTAN: At least 23 people have died this week after drinking home-made liquor in central Pakistan, police and hospital officials said Saturday.

Seventeen people died in hospital in the central city of Multan in the last two days, while six people died at their homes, doctor Fahim Javed of the city's main Nishtar hospital said.

Javed said most of the people died after suffering severe liver damage.

Multan police chief Munir Ahmed Chishti said most of the people were poor labourers aged in their 20s who mixed locally made liquor with a chemical to enhance its effects.

Chishti said police were trying to round up people involved in making illicit liquor and selling it in the market.

Prohibition has been enforced in the Islamic republic since the 1970s but clandestine production of alcohol is rampant especially in the rural areas.

Officially two breweries operate in the country to provide liquor to non-Muslim communities, who form three percent of the 150-million-member Muslim state.

Pakistani actor enjoys Bollywood experience

Islamabad: Pakistani actor Moammar Rana, currently shooting in India for a film, says he enjoys working in Bollywood as Indian producers have lots of resources and facilities.
'For an actor, money, quality and facilities count much. We need results in all sectors and Bollywood has the resources,' Rana told IANS on telephone from India.
The Pakistani actor is shooting for 'Kabhi Pyar Na Karna' opposite Indian actress Neha Dhupia. Javed Raza is the director of the film.
Rana said: 'There is a lot in common in our (Pakistani and Indian) cultures. I feel at home whenever I am in India.'
According to Rana, the Indian film industry has made much progress in recent years but 'Lollywood (the Pakistani film industry) is far behind and has to go a long way'.

Taj Mahal flops all over Pakistan !!!

The lukewarm response to Taj Mahal and Mughal e Azam has left the Pakistani audience cold. Here's why…

The only films to release in Pakistan after a ban of almost 41 years are Mughal e Azam and Taj Mahal. Both films are based on the Mughal era. Why is it that no one has talked about or planned to bring a film like Bluffmaster or Rang De Basanti to local cinemas? Despite the fact that Indian actors like Fardeen, Feroz Khan, Manisha Koirala, Kabir Bedi amongst others brought the film to Pakistan, it hasn't managed to rake in the hordes like King Kong did recently. The film's success is because of the fact that it was released weeks after it's premiere in the West. The hype around it was hot and with the plethora of film channels like HBO, Star Movies, et al we got the full blast of that hype. On the contrary, the promos of Taj Mahal are a distant memory and one remembers the bad reviews it got from everywhere. As a result, even the star power of the Khan khandaan wasn't enough to give it a good run.

It was hard to get tickets unless one arrived at least half an hour before the given time when King Kong arrived in Pakistan. Taj Mahal, however, is just not the same. With not enough entertainment avenues, people have gone to see the film. But this film has not brought that upper middle class crowd to the cinemas. The reason is that they have already seen the film. Ditto with Mughal-e-Azam. The audience verdict is clear. India cannot market their old films here. We've already seen them. Even if Rang De Basanti were to come, it wouldn't run because Worldcall and other smaller cable networks have been running it every other day and a master print at that. Ditto for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. If it comes on the big screen, it will not do well, because all of Shahrukh Khan's diehard fans already know the film by heart. However, if Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna is released here simultaneously or even a week or two after it's Indian premiere, it will do great business. If they wait for six months, chances are, it will be a damp squib.

Will we ever have such an experience or will we have to wait another year before Cinepax, Nadeem Mandviwalla and Satish Anand shake the myopic system and fight for the only logical way to release films in Pakistan
