Poll Results: Imran 1st, Nawaz 2nd, Musharraf 3rd, Zardari 5th and Gillani 10th

by

To know the opinion of educated Pakistanis about Pakistani Political Leaders, I conducted a survey here on this Blog. Then publicize it via facebook, twitter, email and SMS to make it successful.
I included the names of 15 most famous politicians in this survey from almost all national level political parties. This poll was started on 10 June, 2011. Today this poll has gotten its 1000th vote. However this poll is still running up to next year but here I am sharing its so far results with my readers.

Imran Khan of PTI is established as the Most Famous Politician with about 58percent votes, which are more than the total votes of all the 14 remaining politicians in this list.

Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif (PML-N) holds 2nd position with 14 percent votes while his brother got 4th position (8%).

Ironically, Pervez Musharraf (APML) got 3rd position with 12 percent votes. It is very strange that generally it is said that Pervez Musharraf has loosed his support in Pakistan but this online survey shows that he still has enough support in Pakistan.

Asif Ali Zardari (PPP) and Altaf Hussain (MQM) and Makhdoom Javed Hashmi (PML-N) are competing for 5th position with 4 percent votes each.

Shaikh Rasheed Ahmed and Chaudhry Aitzaz Ahsan got about 2, 2 percent votes.

While Chaudhry Shujat Hussain, Chaudhry Pervez Ellahi, Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani, Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, Asfandyar Wali Khan and Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan got only 1, 1 percent votes.

Note: These figures show only the opinion of online participants.

BPS Pay Scales and Salaries of Government Servants in Pakistan

by

BPS Pay Scales in Pakistan

Though there are also some other Pay Scale Systems in Pakistan except Basic Pay Scale Structure (BPS) but BPS is widely used pay scale system in Pakistan. Most of the Government Departments and Organizations follow BPS System. SPS and army scales are examples of other pay systems in Pakistan while private organizations/companies/industries are free to make their own pay structures while Government fixes a minimum salary of any private employee.

BPS scales are regularly revised after every few years. Previously these were revised in 2008 and now after three years these are once again revised in 2011 keeping in view the inflation rate in Pakistan.
Here I am giving BPS pay structure in brief.

History of Pakistan

by

History of Pakistan

With the Blessings of Almighty Allah, Pakistan got independence from British Government in the holy month of Ramadan (14 August, 1947).

Early Civilization
History of this region is very old, about 50 thousand years to 2 million years old. Several great civilizations born and destroyed e.g. Mehr Garh Culture (7000~2800BC), Indus Valley Civilization (3300~1750BC), Vedic Civilization (2000~600BC), Gandhara Civilization (200BC~1000AD) etc
Alexander the Great invaded this region in 327 BC.

Islam in Sub-Continent
Although light of Islam came in this region in very early stages of Islam. Later on Muhammad bin Qasim bring Islam with him when he attacked on Raja Dahir of Sindh. Muslim Sufis and Saints played a very important and vital role to spread Islam in this region.
Several Muslim Rulers ruled over this region, Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi, Mamluk, Khilji, Tughlaq, Lodhi and Mughal are few of them.

Mughal Empire
In 1526, Babur (a descendant of Timur) founded the Mughal Empire, covering modern day Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. East India Company came here to do business here. Through this company British government take full control of whole sub-continent with help of some local rulers in 1857.

Independence of Pakistan
Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Chaudhry Rehmat Ali Khan, Allama Iqbal, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and many others are the heroes of Freedom Movement of Pakistan. All India Muslim League was founded in 1906. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan gave the wisdom and education to Muslims, Allama Iqbal floated the concept of a separate nation for Muslims in 1930, Chaudhry Rehmat Ali published PAKISTAN as the name of new country in the pamphlet “Now or Never” on 28 January 1933. Pakistan Resolution was passed in a general session of All India Muslim League at Lahore on 23 March, 1940.
People of Pakistan got their country in the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam on 14 August, 1947.

Separation of Bangladesh
Pakistan was formed in the form of East Pakistan and West Pakistan in 1947. After a civil war, East Pakistan became the independent state of Bangladesh in 1971. Indian government helped Bengalis to create violence in Bengal.

Pakistan after Independence
At the time of freedom, India hoped that this new country will not survive for long time. But Pakistan is present on the world map with glory and esteem. Although Pakistan faced three Marshal Laws and many other hard times. India has fought three wars with Pakistan. Freedom of Kashmir and control over Siachin are also big issues. But it is the matter of fact that as a nation, we have got many glorious successes in every field, Science and Technology, Politics, Military, Education, International Relations, Economy Infrastructure etc with limited resources but still much to do for development and to make the life of a common person more comfortable.
Note: For more details, please visit Wikipedia

Appeal to All Pakistanis
Join hands to get united. Enemy always tried through their conspiracies to divide and destroy us. Please don’t politicize national interests. We should become ONE, keeping our individual identity and dignity. First of all we should be Muslims and Pakistanis then Sindhis, Punjabis, Pkhtuns, Balochs and Kashmiris.
