1 The Samjhauta Express – Pakistan And India Lahore to Delhi – by roothmens

5 jul. 2015

The Samjhauta Express commonly called the Friendship Express, is a twice-weekly train – Tuesdays and Fridays – that runs between Delhi and Attari in India and Lahore in Pakistan. The word samjhauta means “agreement”,”accord” and “compromise” in both Hindi and Urdu.
Until the reopening of the Thar Express, this was the only rail connection between the two countries. The train was started on 22 July 1976 following the Shimla Agreement and ran between Amritsar and Lahore, a distance of about 42 km. Following disturbances in Punjab in the late eighties, due to security reasons Indian Railways decided to terminate the service at Attari, where customs and immigration clearances take place. On 14 April 2000, in an agreement between Indian Railways and Pakistan Railways (PR), the distance was revised to cover just under three km.
It was a daily train when the service started, and changed to a bi-weekly schedule in 1994. Earlier the rakes were returned to the home country the same day but later in 2000 the rake remained overnight at that location.
Its termini are Lahore in Pakistan and Delhi in India. The border crossing takes place between Wagah in Pakistan and Attari in India. Originally, this was a through service with the same rake going all the way between the termini; later the Pakistani rake stopped at Attari at which point passengers had to change trains.
Now there is a train from Delhi to Attari where all passengers alight for customs and immigration. This train does not have any commercial stops between Delhi and Attari. It is incorrectly referred to as the Samjhauta Express and it is officially known as the Delhi-Attari or Attari-Delhi Express. The actual Samjhauta Express runs from Attari to Lahore, although the passengers are checked at Wagah, the first station on the Pakistani side. The train service was set up with an agreement between Indian Railways (IR) and Pakistan Railways (PR) to alternately use an Indian and a Pakistani rake and locomotive for the train, six months at a time.
The train usually has between four and eight coaches. The rake supplied by Pakistan is usually hauled by an Alco DL-543 class ALU20 diesel loco (Lahore shed), with the entire train in the standard dark green livery of PR.
The train’s first break of service was when it was discontinued on 1 January 2002 in the wake of the terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament on 13 December 2001. Service resumed on 15 January 2004. Service was also suspended following the 27 December 2007, assassination of Benazir Bhutto as a preventive measure to deny militants a “high-value target” that was of great symbolic importance to both India and Pakistan.

6 Terminal Life: Pakistan’s Street Working Children


19 feb. 2010

Half the population of Pir Wadhai, Pakistans busiest open air bus terminal, is under 15. Eighty percent have been working since they were three, or younger. As rag pickers, oil collectors and massage boys, children are exposed to every kind of danger imaginable. Their innocence is cheap, quickly exchanged for a few rupees to feed large, struggling families or, to survive another day with profits to their exploiters. There is one spark of hope in the midst of deep misery: Manzil, World Visions drop-in centre near Pir Wadhai. It offers an alternative timetable for working children at this terminal; an opportunity for them to change their life destination.

21 jul. 2015

Children in Pakistan are still seen working in dangerous conditions for very little pay even though laws have been passed to clamp down on child labour.

Millions of children from poor families in the country do not have the advantage of gradually entering the realm of adult work and are forced to get jobs to make ends meet.

Non governmental organisations say the authorities are not doing enough to ensure that children are in school rather than at work.

Children working in hazardous industries in urban areas such as Karachi in Pakistan contribute more than 40 per cent of household incomes.

These children come from poor families and they work so their families can meet basic needs.

Almost two-thirds of households have income below the level of basic needs.

In a quarter of Pakistani households the eldest child worker is below the age of 14 and as many as 82 per cent of them live below the poverty line.

Children mostly work in industries like carpet weaving, sports goods, textiles, shoe making, packaging and the iron industry.

With no welfare state in Pakistan children say they have no option but to go to work.

Many are paid a pittance.

“I am working for the last three years… I have 10 brothers and sisters. I get 500 Pakistani Rupees (less than 10 U-S dollars) per month. We live in a rented house… I had to work to support my family.”
SUPER CAPTION: M Ali, Iron Worker

Other children do not work purely because of economic reasons but also because of social circumstances.

Salman works at a carpet weaving shop because his father, who is a drug addict, took a loan from his employer and could not pay it back.

“I am working here since six years… my father got a loan of 6000 Pakistani Rupees from my employer. That’s why I work here. My father is a drug addict.”
SUPER CAPTION: Salman, a carpet weaver

Two years ago the government passed a law it claimed would end child labour.

Some non-governmental organisations (N-G-Os) with the support of local governments say progress is being made.

Many schools and vocational centres have been set up by N-G-Os, not only in urban areas but rural regions as well, where working children get a chance to study.

But some say the government still isn’t doing enough to protect children.

SOUNDBITE: (English)
“This problem is so big, and the pathetic condition which I feel in our country compared to other developing countries that here there is no political will at all to deal with this child labour issue. The government institutions are not very sensitive towards that, there are no firm policies on that, the legislature are not interested to work on that because they are busy working on other things. Child labour has never been addressed at the national level.”
SUPER CAPTION: Zia Ahmed Awan, Lawyer, human rights activist and Board Member Child Care Foundation.

Experts say if the issue of child labour is to be taken seriously, the government must do more to control poverty, which is the root cause of the problem.

The N-G-Os say without stricter laws than at present – the fate of (m) millions children remains uncertain and gloomy.

24 🇵🇰 Pakistan – Prime Minister Addresses General Debate, 74th Session

27 sep. 2019

Imran Khan, Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, addresses the general debate of the 74th Session of the General Assembly of the UN (New York, 24 – 30 September 2019).

Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan today warned that what is going to happen in Kashmir when the curfew is lifted “will be a bloodbath.”

Addressing the General Assembly today (27 Sep) in New York, Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said, “when a nuclear armed country fights to the end, it will have consequences far beyond the borders.”

He added, “It will have consequences for the world, which is why I repeat I am here, because I’m warning you, it is not a threat, it’s a fair worry that where are we heading?”

On Kashmir, Khan further asked, “what is the world community going to do? Is it going to appease a market of 1.2 billion, or is it going to stand up for justice and humanity?”

The Prime Minister reiterated, “I’ve come here to tell the UN, you got to, this is a test for the United Nations. You are the one who guaranteed the people of Kashmir the right of self-determination. They are suffering because of that and this is the time.”

On Islamophobia, Khan said, “Islamophobia since 911 has grown at a pace that is alarming. Human communities live together. There should be understanding amongst them. But Islamophobia is creating a division. Muslim women wearing hijab is becoming an issue, it’s becoming an issue in some country, hijab is some sort of weapon.”

He also said, “this Islamic terrorism, Islamic radicalism, and sadly used by leaders, this has been the main reason for Islamophobia, and it has caused pain among Muslims.”

The Prime Minister continued, “we, in Muslim countries watch this Islamophobia travelling abroad and it’s getting worse. And may I just say Mr. President that in European countries, it is marginalizing Muslim communities. And we all know that marginalization leads to radicalization.”

Khan also noted the importance of combating climate change and corruption.

2 aug. 2022

A brutal heatwave has hit Pakistan. With daily temperatures hitting 50 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country, the scorching heat wave has transformed several cities into hell on earth. It has destroyed crops and icesheets much faster than previously anticipated. Officials have also warned of acute water shortage and the country is now staring at a major food crisis.
Pakistan is now ranked the 6th most vulnerable country on the planet and its Ministry of Climate Change estimates that climate change could cost the country anywhere from $7 billion to $10 billion a year in disaster response alone, never mind the massive losses in economic activities caused by the intense heat.
Can something be done to reverse the tide of climate change before it is too late? And will the people be able to fight the biggest threat to their existence?
