Why can't we name our Peaks Ardeshir Cowasjee? Mega land scam in Karachi, Raud Klasra sues website, Jaish growing

Why cannot we name these mountain peaks reflecting our culture and history? ~t

BLESSED are we 180 million souls who inhabit Pakistan. We have towering over our land five mountain peaks exceeding 8,000 metres in height – Mount Goodwin Austin (K2) 8,611m; Mount Nanga Parbat 8,126m; Mount Gasherbrum(I) 8,068m; Mount Broad Peak 8,047m; and Mount Gasherbrum (II) 8,035m. Enough water flows down our rivers to enable us to dam and electrify entire regions, but this has not happened. We have a coastline of 1,000km opening up on one of the world’s wide seaways, but we only have two deepwater ports (and no private sector-owned ships fly the Pakistan flag). The country has survived for 62 years and all governments have deliberately ensured that some 40 per cent of the population remains illiterate. Aredeshir Cowasjee ‘Eat, drink and be merry…’

State land measuring more than 75,000 sq yards situated in the heart of Karachi, whose market value was once assessed at Rs 7 billion has been leased out to a private party for 99 years by the Sindh government for merely Rs 155 million, it is learnt.According to sources, on the basis of previous assessments, the government had three figures before it to fix the rate of the commercial land i.e. Rs 7 billion as assessed in 2007; Rs 3.76 billion as determined in 1998; or Rs 2.636 billion as per the price fixed in 2006 by the District Price Fixation Committee.However, it adopted none of these figures. Instead a special meeting of the District Price Fixation Committee, headed by the EDO Revenue, was arranged to get assessed its market price and brought it down to Rs 8,230 per square yard (Rs 40 m per acre), which brought the land price from Rs 2.6 billion (@35,000 per sq yd) in 2006 to Rs 620 million in 2009. And when it came to the finalisation of the deal the land was sold for 1/4th of this highly under-assessed price. Mega land scam in Karachi - Ansar Abbasi
