The below request was sent by Mr. Shahid Zubair of Lahore-Pakistan, the father of 3 kids. Afterward Maria Memon (GEO TV) went to meet the family and prepared a report, which is attached in the form of a video for your kind perusal and consideration.
They are as beautiful and beloved as our children at home. These two affected children are the assets of this Nation, that is known to be ‘Zinda Dil Qaum’. I would humbly request you to help them and spread the word by any means. Please Spread it through social media, through posting it on the notice boards (of your organization/university), by emailing within your organization and your friends. Please spread it the way you would want to do it for your own brother & sister.
May God Bless You and Your Families.
To Honorable Sir,
This is my last attempt to gain HELP to save lives of my 3 kids, as all my requests to Govt Officials and Donors were not responded as I expected.
I have three kids, 12 old years Nida (Daughter), 10 years old Ahmad (son) and 5 years old Eman (daughter), all suffering from some auto immune disorder disease or some type of muscular dystrophy, due to which 2 of them (elder ones) are unable to walk now whereas Eman my 3rd kid is threatened by this disease and will loose her ability to walk.
In Pakistan no proper diagnosis, cure and treatment is available. We requested various authorities for financial assistance but no response is received as yet. We are not receiving any medical assistance and facility from any of the Medical Institutions in Pakistan being as a special case.
As Pakistani doctors have opinions that no treatment is available in Pakistan but it can be cured only abroad…. but my resources are very limited. I am a white collar person. I cannot afford the treatment and various diagnostic costs available outside Pakistan. I do not beg people but on the other side as being a father not having the required resources, would need your generous donations and contribution, as my entire family has a great hope that my kids will start walking again on their own feet.
Sir, you are a kind person, your attention can change our life.Kindly help us, with the blessings of Allah. We are sure that our kids will become normal and they will defeat the disease.
We have received an invitation from Dallas Hospital USA with a ray of hope for their treatment, and 25th August 2010 is the date the of appointment. The cost of treatment per child will be Rs.2,500,000/- (which is approx. US$ 30,000/- for each kid, travel included).
Please HELP us and kindly give attention to our APPEAL as we are in dire need of your generous contribution. Unfortunately, our Government is not helping me out at all.
My kids asked me, “Baba, shall we recover?”. I have to ensure them YES.
Our wishes and dreams to survive, will only come true by your personnel attention. We need approximately Rs 7.5 million on an urgent basis from any donor, which is not big for you and not for our Allah to arrange for us. Being a Pakistani citizen, my last hope is lying with you. I know you have lot of other work to do but kindly pay attention to our request.
With very best regards

I got an unexpected response for my last most critic post about 1st Annual Blog Awards from the readers . Some of them were extraordinary supportive that I couldn’t stop being senti=| I am greatful to those commentators who have shared their opinions against that post. Just wanted to share some of the comments that were really amazing and gave inspiration none of its kind:
- I just wanted you to know that there people like me who really appreciate for bringing this up and voicing your opinion
- good journalism shows us all the sides of an issue.
- @jingoists Great post.
- Its really very brave of you
- I was feeling the same thing for a long time.
- Courage to speak truth is indeed a big thing, do not ever lose it.
- I didn’t dare say anything because most of the people are my friends and yet you did
- Its the same people everytime and they only promote their own people- very few can point out this as its one powerful group
I kept them anonymous because, most of the comments belong to the people who are friends of those who I have strongly criticized in my post earlier. So Stand up Bloggers!! Its time to spread the truth regardless if its bitter for our dearest friends. We have bigger responsibilities then just keeping our friends happy. As described by Awab Alvi in the latest episode of laidbackshow episode 20 that CIO people are sweet by nature and they want to keep their friends happy.
ps: this is just a request that we shoudn’t start criticizing to that extent that we forget to appreciate things happening around us. All the best!
***Post might contain some lines, expressions, feelings, comments which you may not like, but remember it’s just a blogger’s opinion, If somebody is offended.. be that! I am sorry but I will be quite hard with my comments. My sole intention is to make the responsible persons realize there mistakes
Congratulations to CIO Pakistan, Google Pakistan for arranging the 1st Annual Pakistan Blog Awards and then feeling bad for the winners for getting it without doing any thing!
It started well, when bloggers started appealing some attention of the world, to showcase their blogs. Then CIO Pakistan and Google Pakistan took an initiative of Blog Awards. Nominations were done by themselves or by their reading fans (who in the world have nothing else to do except this)
Lets go through critics on some of the winners who were not at all deserving people for such awards:
- Best Celebrity Blog | Naveen Naqvi | naveenaqvi.com
Is it because, she is the only person who interact with Alpha, Beta, and a few more bloggers??? was there any other celebrity nominated??? If not Why ? CIO people to answer this!

6 posts in 5 months out of which only one was indirectly related to Pakistan… that was on Kashmir Day… lolz!! CIO Pakistan, did you even check before being so biased??? CIO people to answer this!!
- Best Fashion Blog | Irfan Ahson | bridalfashions.wordpress.com

- Best Humor Blog | Tazeen | tazeen-tazeen.blogspot.com

- Best Online Community Blog | Yasir Nisar | www.flickr.com/groups/pakistaniphotographers
Where in the world Communities/Forums/Discussion Groups came under the category of BLOG??? CIO you have already awarded so much to your friends… Stop doing that!!
- Live Blogger | Fariha Akhtar
I would appreciate if CIO could shed some light on the term LIVE BLOGGER?? isn’t she awarded because she is the most active person who Retweets Alpha, Neena, Gamma. Is she awarded because she always say yes, yes, yes to what they say?? CIO you were so keen to award her that you didn’t even bother specifying her blog on the website!! CIO must answer this

- Best Industry Support | Jehan Ara
Awww, How CIO can forget the bestest Member. How funny to see that CIO being organizer awarding its own Member… lol… Shame on You CIO!!
I didn’t comment on the ones that i found to be appropriate and where luckily the arrow of CIO got a bit accurate. CIO must be ashamed of what ever have they done.
All bloggers someway or the other condemn the acts of Governmental Bodies including President by claiming that incompitent people have been appointed just to be generous and by awarding ministries to their beloved friends. They have been raising their voice through their platform in order to bring awareness so that such activities could be avoided in future.
I feel sorry for all the bloggers to be associated with so much biased/unprofessional blog awards. They were completely biased .. Improfessional .. Generous enough to be award to their beloved friends .. Just like our government does that
This is Big Shame to CIO … you just lost your credibility!!
This is a request to all the bloggers. Self evaluate your self because a person never lie to himself. Stay away from people with biased mentality. Stop being favourite of any organization. Beleive in your self identity and not by associating with such organizations. Spread a good cause. Spread it independently with your best knowledge without having any biasness. We need to get things rectified for the sake of this country. Be honest to this world and to your self.
With such attributes together, we can bring alot of change to the best of part of this world… The Land of Pure, Pakistan!
easypaisa retail outlet is currently serving a large area of rural part of Pakistan which still seeks for some banking services. The famous of all Money Transfer and Bill Payment Services even during the non-office hours is helping quite alot to the widespread unbanked sector. They have recently revised the Fee structure for the Utility Bill Payment Services and now there will be no extra fee to be paid by the customer. i.e. Customer will only pay the exact amount that is on the bill.
- No extra surcharge!!
This would not just help easypaisa but the Utility Companies as well for the collection of their Monthly bills. This is a great initiative by easypaisa to provide ease & convineince to their customers. On top of that, its an amazing feeling to have such services available in Pakistan.
All the best easypaisa! Way to go!
Alot of people around my table @ work were quite sad due to the facebook ban. They consider it as an isloation for not interacting with there social network (available @ facebook) and on the same hand, quite worried about the boredom during working hours. Facebook has been an affective tool to overcome the boredome specially for the timewasters.
Though it was expected, i have so far received 5 invitations of twitter following as the traffic is going to move to twitter now. Facebook users are really sad about this ban and they can’t really live without social networking
On the other hand, I got so many texts from different people (including those who used to spend more than 4 hours on facebook daily) congratulating me about the facebook ban. They are happy about it and so am I.
Teeth Maestro highlighted that
On one hand they are quick to delete the facebook page of a civil activist group [Peoples Resistance] which was organizing street protests in Karachi on the mere whim that we might be promoting hatred and violence, while in reality we were peacefully protesting against a military dictatorship, our democratic right – that group was deleted quickly and the administrators were issued warnings, this group continues to reign supreme raking over 34,400 fans since April 25th
Now this point directs us towards the descrimination of Facebook Management as how they take freedom of speech and violation of their policies. Recently Molly Norris has also published a disclaimer on her website declaring her disassociation with the campaign. I cannot find any other reason for facebook to be reported as abuse. I guess LHC ban should not be lifted and remain permanent unless faceook realizes the fact that we are in majority contributors of their earnings.
I didn’t find facebook ban as an isolation. I consider it to be a protest. Either by not signing in or by putting a ban.
A protest we must do
Somebody just shared the following post on the facebook.
I couldn’t stop myself clarifying this as per my little experience. This is indeed very depressing but things aren’t similar to what has been shown in that post.
I have been into the e-payment industry for about 3 years now which is being regulated by a dedicated E-Banking Team of State Bank of Pakistan(SBP). SBP, being one of the best and strict regulatory body of the world, keeps a very strong eye on these financial institutes.
I won’t disclose the names but yes, AML has been working with different financial institutes to incorporate processes that can eliminate the money laundering activities. SBP has been quite vigilant about the movement of funds and has been working with AML to avoid fraudulent transactions.
A country where almost all famous intl. payment services (like paypal) are avoiding to serve. This could be another discriminative step by US Govt as currently a great deal of freelancers were accepting through payoneer card. This would affect masses and eventually benefit the other freelancers in this region including India & Bangladesh.
Instead of protesting against the current govt. raise your voice to bycott American influence and their products. Hit them the way they are hitting us! They aren’t our friends neither can think good for us!
This is just an eye-opener.

A Host was interviewing a renowned personality of that time in front of a large audience. Host asked that person to advice the new generation in view of your experiences and observations. That person responded, “I won’t go for a long speech and just advice one thing……… ‘Whatever you do, Do it with perfection (Kamal-e-Husn)’……”
Somebody from audience who (may be) had a grudge against that person, gave a loud comment addressing the personality:
“No matter you are at this high place now, don’t forget that you used to polish the shoes in the city”
That personality responded the commentator by saying:
“Indeed! I have no shame to tell everyone that I used to polish shoes in the city……But do remember that, even at that time there was no one in the city who could polish the shoes with the perfection… that I had”
Nandos has the habit of responding to the current affairs through their advertisements and one liners. I just received an email in which Nandos has did it again. Check it out!!
