Forum: Mandi Bahauddin Latest News and Issues
- No Replies

Maryam Nawaz, a vice president of the PML-N, demanded Prime Minister Imran Khan's resignation in a post-midnight rally on Sunday in Mandi Bahauddin.

Addressing the premier in her speech, she said: "Give your resignation! Go home!" and urged the crowds to chant along with her.
The PML-N leader also said that keeping former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in jail will be a crime now following yesterday's "evidence", alleging that his sentencing had been given under “immense pressurefrom hidden hands” — a claim rejected today by the presiding judge.

In her address, which was held on Jail Road, she claimed that Nawaz "will be released, and will become prime minister once more — but this time more powerful than ever before".

She congratulated the PML-N workers on their leader being “proven innocent of all the charges”. The PML-N leader said the former premier’s only crime was that he had committed no crime but had called for the respect of votes for which her party would continue to strive.


In a tweet earlier on Sunday, Maryam had said that she will further talk about the startling claims she made yesterday regarding accountability judge Arshad Malik. However, the subject was not broached besides a small reference to yesterday's press conference.
Earlier, Maryam Nawaz was given a rousing welcome by a large number of party workers on the Motorway and other points on way to Mandi Bahauddin.






Multiple receptions at different points on the way delayed her convoy’s arrival in Mandi Bahauddin where the party’s local leadership and workers had been waiting for her on Jail Road since 6pm.


Prior to her departure on Sunday evening, Maryam had told party workers in a message that she would meet them in Mandi Bahauddin, "whether at a ground or a road". She had promised to meet them there "despite all hindrances created by the government".


PML-N had alleged that the ground had also been intentionally filled with rain and drainage water diverted after the heavy rain on Saturday and it seemed difficult that a rally could be held there in the current situation. Meanwhile, the administration and police had not granted the PML-N permission to hold the rally at the venue, citing security reasons.

Lying amid snowcapped, towering mountains in Utror valley, the enchanting Izmis lake invites adventure seekers and nature lovers to experience its charming views and unsurpassed serenity.
Izmis lake is a glacial lake located to the southwest of Utror valley in the alpine zone at an elevation of 11,500 feet about 13 kilometres above Utror bazaar in Swat valley.
Since the lake is surrounded by several small caves, the locals named it 'Izmis', meaning 'caves' in the local Kohistani language.
"Izmis lake is completely different from the other lakes in Swat valley because its crystal clear water reflects the mountain towering above it. At first glance, I thought it was a huge mirror," said Ikram Khan, a trekker from Saidu Sharif who had visited the lake with his friends.
The visitors told Dawn that the entire valley and the trek towards the lake was a nature lover's paradise.
"If you love nature then Izmis lake and its surrounding meadows are the perfect places for you, and I am sure that the lush green carpet grassland, waterfalls, thick forests, trickling streams and calm magical lake will make you fall in love with this nature wonder," Babar Ali, a trekker, said.
The visitors to the lake and meadows said that the terrain of the valley was different as the location of its meadows gave the impression of a roof surrounded by snowcapped peaks.
Visitors to Izmis lake said it was a memorable trip for them because they witnessed unique natural wonders along with the biodiversity of upper Swat.
They suggested that visitors to the area take special care of the environment and its beauty by keeping the area clean and not littering.

Bilal Mansoor Khawaja beams as he runs his palms over the ivory coat of a white lion, one of thousands of exotic animals at his personal "zoo" in Karachi, where a thriving wildlife trade caters to Pakistan's gilded elite.

"These are ... (some) of the rarest animals I own," boasts the 29-year-old industrialist of his leashed lion.
Pakistani laws make it easy to import exotic animals, but once inside the country regulation is almost non-existent.
This has led to an untold number of such creatures — especially big cats, seen as symbols of wealth and power — being imported or bred across Pakistan in recent years, much to the horror of helpless wildlife officials.
Social media is littered with videos of wealthy Karachiites cruising with lions sitting in the front seats of luxury SUVs, while newspapers have featured reports of arrests of residents brazenly taking their big cats out for strolls and drives.
Khawaja estimates there are up to 300 lions within Karachi's city limits alone, kept in gardens, inside rooftop cages, and at farm houses across the sun-baked metropolis of about 20 million — notorious for its grinding traffic, crumbling infrastructure, and lack of greenspaces.

Khawaja calls his handful of lions and a tiger the "crown jewels" of a larger collection of more than 4,000 animals he has amassed in recent years.
He insists his collection — made up of some 800 different species — is not about status or prestige but simply a manifestation of his love for pets.
"We Pakistanis have a problem: where our heart is soft, it's very soft.
Where it's hard, it's very hard," he gushes.
To care for his flock, he has more than 30 people working in shifts and four vets on staff.

The entire operation costs a fortune, Khawaja admits, although he refuses to provide an estimate of just how much he shelled out for his personal zoo.
But the cost and the series of minor injuries he has accrued over the years at the hands of his prized pets are well worth it, he claims.
"With every injury my love for these animals ... grows more," he smiles.
His nine-acre property where a portion of his animals, including zebras, flamingos, and horses, reside is smack in the middle of a dense neighbourhood in the megacity.
Lion farming
Exotic animal dealer Aleem Paracha, who claims to be one of the top three importers of exotic animals in Karachi, says that for Rs1.4 million he can deliver a white lion to a client in up to 48 hours — and do so entirely legally.

Certificates from the countries of origin along with permits from authorities are provided for any animal brought into Pakistan in accordance with an international treaty to protect endangered species.
But Paracha says there is also a network of breeders across Pakistan that can also provide lions at a moment's notice, including at least 30 in Karachi.
"In Karachi, lion farming is going very well," he explains.

And while indigenous species are fiercely protected in Pakistan, the same protections are not extended to imported animals.
The government has guidelines regarding the treatment and type of enclosures big cats and other exotic species should be provided with.
But "the law is silent" on breeding, explains Javed Mahar, head of Sindh province's wildlife department.
Uzma Khan, a technical advisor with the World Wildlife Fund, says there is not even an authority monitoring government-run zoos, which are notorious for neglect, let alone the private sector.
"There's lots of private breeders and they are very shady," Khan adds.
'The law is silent'
Meanwhile, owners like Khawaja may have the means and passion to provide the hearty diet for their animals, but others have been known to fall short.

Karachi veterinarian Isma Gheewala says lions suffering from calcium deficiencies are common at her clinic, where she says she has treated between 100 to 150 big cats over the years.
"The bones become extremely brittle," she explains.
"And even if they jump like a foot down, they will injure some bone or the other and then it takes a long time for the animals to recover."

But both Paracha and Khawaja dismiss claims they are doing anything harmful by taking exotic species out of their natural habit and raising them in Pakistan.
"A lot of animals, either they're extinct or they're on the edge of being extinct," argues Khawaja, adding, "I don't want the next generations to not see these animals."
But conservationists like Khan at the WWF dismiss such arguments.
"An animal in captivity is not the way it is in the wild," she explains.
"What's the point of having an animal which is not hunting, which is in a cage not showing its natural behaviour?"
