        May       12, Seminar         Afghanistan    I was guest speaker at Institute of
        2008                                         Regional        Studies     seminar      on
                                                     Afghanistan, presented a paper on
                                                     “Afghanistan: Integration of counter
                                                     insurgency, counter narcotics and
                                                     development policies.
                                                     Afghanistan is a traditional country,
                                                     where the issue should be dealt locally
                                                     rather than nationally. A fraction of
                                                     financial resources which are available
                                                     could be dedicated to empower
                                                     traditional councils in villages and
                                                     district levels, which could become good
                                                     interlocutors between the government
                                                     and local farmers in the context of an
                                                     efficient and effective counter narcotics
                                                     policy.
        May       15, Meeting         Afghanistan    Met with UNHCR to discuss the issue of
2008                                   Afghan refugees and asylum policies of

May    23, Resolution   India          “This house condemns the statement of
2008                                   Indian National Security Adviser that
                                       Pakistan has not stopped cross border
                                       terrorism and is fomenting communal
                                       troubles in India.

May    23, Resolution   India          This house condemns the Delhi public
2008                                   school authorities ban on Muslim
                                       students which stopped them from
                                       offering prayers in school premises in
                                       Kashmir.
                                       This house resolves to back the plea of
                                       the Kashmiris to link India’s bid for a
                                       seat in UNSC with its resolution of

June    2, Resolution   Sovereignty    House condemns NATO’s sarcastic
2008                                   remarks against Pakistan troops as
                                       Pakistan’s contributions to fighting
                                       extremism should not be belittled.
June   23, Article      India          Article in The News “Resolution of
2008                                   Kashmir”          published.     Kashmir’s
                                       resolution is not just one agenda item
                                       on our Composite Dialogue but THE
                                       agenda item. I hope that together with
                                       government         we    as   ‘constructive
                                       opposition’ contribute towards its
                                       resolution.
July   11, Seminar      US/            Attended Pildat Seminar on US Policy.
2008                    Sovereignty/   These days the most dangerous threat
                                       facing Pakistan’s sovereign territorial
                                       integrity, it is important to send US the
                                       right message. US needs to get out of a
                                       belligerent mode. It must leave
                                       Afghanistan but in a phased way. The
                                       clubbing of ALQ and Taliban is not
                                       useful by US. The only way to change
                                       US belligerent policy is to resist it;
                                       through regional collective effort versus
                                       individual country effort. Great game
                                       ambitions of US are not affordable. If
                                       Pak falls to extremism, US would loose
                                       all. US help is required for resolving
                                       Kashmir. It is important for US to study
                                       the Pak China model to understand how
                                       relations need to be conducted with
                                              Pak.
July    11, Resolution       US/              House resolves to condemn the
2008                         Sovereignty      incursions by the Western forces into
                                              Pak borders which are an affront to its
                                              territorial sovereign integrity.
July    25, Press            India            Govt announced Trade Policy. This
2008        Conference                        trade policy is ‘India centric’. All trade
                                              routes with India pass through Kashmir.
                                              We will not allow ‘loot sale’ of its natural
                                              resources for Indian businessmen.
                                              Government had already decided to
                                              award the contract of a significant “Thar
                                              Coal Project” to “Reliance Company” of
                                              India. No country allows its adversary
                                              an open access to its natural resources.
                                              This policy would make Pakistan a
                                              “dumping ground” for faulty and old
                                              Indian technologies, equipment and
                                              commodities.”

Aug     21, Point         of US               Rice assertion that there is no
2008        Order                             leadership vacuum in Pak was wrong

                                              security govt had failed to deliver due to
                                              lack of cohesion and dysfunctionality in
                                              ranks.
Aug     22, Question NA      India            I asked Foreign Minister whether he

                                          with India? This will weaken Pakistan
                                          and Chinese position, so what sort of
                                          initiatives government has taken to

                                          supplies rather than militants do this.
                                          We should do it officially to show that
                                          we are a dignified nation.

Nov    22, Visit      / China   Visited      Shanghai     Academy       of
2008       Meetings             International Studies. I presented a
                                paper on “Pak-China Bilaterals Baton
                                change strategy”. We have traveled to
                                China to seek a deeper understanding
                                of what type of impetus is required to
                                boost our bilaterals. As young
                                parliamentarians from Pakistan, we are
                                honored to accept taking the baton
                                forward on the Pak-China bilaterals.
                                Zhou’s li and yue philosophy comes to
                                my mind when I examine how the
                                correct policies will enhance the trust of
                                the people. Scientific Outlook on
                                development needs to be a shared
                                objective in the Pak-China bilateral.
                                Pakistan’s future needs as described in
                                the Vision 2030 need to be compared to
                                a similar document of where China will
                                be in 2030. A SWOT Analysis is also
                                required on an immediate basis of the
                                     two countries. Pakistan’s weaknesses
                                     need to be capped by China and vice
                                     versa.

                                   French media.
Dec    16, Point        of India   I said that a historic parallel between
2008       Order                   1971 and 2008 and it is that Indians in
                                   those days and in these days trying to
                                   destabilize Pakistan. And Inshallah we
                                   will not let them succeed in their
                                   intentions this time and we are united on
                                   this point.

Dec    16, Meeting         India   Meeting with visiting Senator Kerry. I
2008                               made two points:         First, we don’t
                                   appreciate our state agency being
                                   accused of terror linkages. The same
                                   statement would have been appreciated
                                   by him on RAW when he was visiting
                                   India. Second that we would appreciate
                                   US insisting on reciprocity from India on
                                   cleaning up its terror networks, including
                                   investigation of RAW linkage to Alqaida
                                   attacks of many suicide bombers in Pak.
                                   The bomb attacks linked to AlQaida in
                                   our country need to be investigated by
                                   UN whether they have any Indian non
                                   state actor or state (RAW) role.
Dec    23, Article         India   Article “Diplomacy with Delhi “ published
2008                               in The News. Pakistan needs a dignified
                                   response strategy to the international
                                   isolation resultant from the weak
                                   diplomacy of the current government
                                   and the efficient diplomacy by India. The
                                   first track of the ‘diplomatic initiative
                                   strategy’ or DIS is ‘composite dialogue
                                   awareness campaign’. The second track
                                   of DIS is the ‘Indian propaganda
                                   inversion campaign’. The third track of
                                   DIS is the “forcible reversal of Indian
                                   regional destabilization.’ The fourth
                                   track of DIS is the ‘terror accountability
                                   strategy’. The fifth track of DIS is the
                                   relations with US which have to be built
                                   on a basis of respect for Pakistan’s
                                   sovereignty. Finally the sixth track of
                                   DIS is the ‘economic tsunami recovery
                                   plan’.
Dec    24, Resolution      India   Parliament was drafting a resolution on

                                   that international community should
                                         ensure that India dismantles its terror
                                         network and stops spreading regional
                                         destabilization and that we condemn
                                         terror attacks in India AND Pakistan,
                                         were added.

                                         the Indian relationship must be
                                         conducted with great care. We have
                                         many unresolved issues with India
                                         including Kashmir and no amount of
                                         brotherly talk is useful till such issues
                                         are resolved. why have we sat silently
                                         on discovery of Indian origin arms in
                                         Swat and Indian help to separatist
                                         movement in Balochistan.

                                         recently asked Ajoka Theater to not

                                         federation. Breakdown of government to
                                         respond Indian allegations has made
                                         this nation guilty in front of international

2009                                     Assembly but got rejected. This house
                                         understands the importance of the

                                   to this issue. The US Special

2009                               Commissioner who put state security at
                                   risk because he admitted ISI was
                                   involved in terrorism in the past but not
                                   anymore- in diplomacy past and present
                                   is same admittance. I demanded that
                                   mandate of Holbrooke should not be
                                   limited to Pakistan-Afghanistan only, he
                                   should mediate on Kashmir issue too
                                   and members of Parliament should
                                   demand this. I said UK was also going
                                   to nominate envoy for Pakistan and
                                   Afghanistan and that the resolution of

                                   the security of this region.
March   12, Speech NA      India   Asked the government response on

2009                                     Obama’s AfPak Policy. Accepting the
                                         policy is tantamount to loosing
                                         sovereignty over our foreign policy
                                         choices.
April   10,   Point     of US / India    Raised issue of Foreign Minister who
2009          Order                      clearly had not negotiated a good US
                                         aid bill since clause J asking Pakistan to
                                         ensure no terror act against India would
                                         be emanating from Pakistan in order to
                                         qualify for the funds was incorporated.
April   13,   Meeting      US / India    Meeting with Senator Kerry on Pak-US
2009                                     bilateral. I asked him to look into finding
                                         a resolution for Kashmir.
April   13,   Meeting    / US / India    Handed over a letter to Kerry for
2009          Report                     President Obama. Pakistan seeks
                                         peace and security, but not at the cost
                                         of our dignity and sovereignty. I believe
                                         that my armed forces and government is
                                         capable of safeguarding Pakistan’s
                                         nuclear assets from all eventualities. I
                                         also believe that peace between India
                                         and Pakistan is critical for defeating
                                         militancy in the region. The Afpak policy
                                         and the ‘Peace Act 2009’ which we
                                         perceive as a US-Indian tool for
                                         curtailing Pakistan’s sovereignty, should
                                         be saved from this branding.

                        Eleanor Clift- meeting with her to
                        interact with US intelligentsia and to
                        pushing Pakistan case. She was eager
                        to rattle off Pakistan’s issues with US
                        foreign policy so that US intelligentsia
                        could have our side of the story. She
                        had prepared a detailed summary which
                        she handed over on IDP assistance,

                        we have been beaten square by India
                        on this.

                        Meeting with pakistan’s Ambasador to
                        US and then dinner with the Pakistani
                        lobby team. It was important to be on
                        the same page and rise above party
                        affiliations at this stage for Pakistan
                        which we did. They discussed over
                        dinner how Indians were better
                        cemented in their lobby tactics and she
                        made a strategy to improve our lobby
                        initiatives within US through such
                        teams. This to me is such an exciting
                        process. Working with teams to make
                        the mission happen. No mission can
                        happen in isolation. The webs of
                        support have to be built in.

                               the no go clauses on Dr. AQ Khan and
                               that these clauses are unacceptable for
                               Pakistan. He replied that his intention
                               was to ensure Pakistan follow non
                               proliferation regime- She assured him
                               Pakistan was not proliferating and Dr.
                               AQ Khan days were over.

                               Visited State assembly.

May    22, Visit         US    Minneapolis: meeting with a judge at the
2009                           Humphrey Institute- university of
                               Minnesota to discuss human trafficking.
May    22, Visit         US    I wrote an article “3 weeks in America –
2009                           Part 1” for Urdu English media in
                               Pakistan.
                               I must admit that I was highly skeptical
                               about this trip on the plane. There was
                               none of the romance which I had felt
                               when I boarded the flight for Beijing.
                               However, I convinced myself that this
                               was for Pakistan and I had to play my
                               role in pushing Pakistan’s case
                               internationally rather than just sitting in
                               opposition benches and criticizing
                               government. Whichever system is
                               chosen it needs to be followed without
                               any short cuts. It needs to be an
                               accountable system or else it becomes
                               a despotic system; this rule is as true for
                               a civil system as it is for a military
                               political system. It was about choosing a
                               well thought out system, not a system
                               half-baked on individual self interest of
                               coming to power. Systems took time to
                               build.

2009       Note
                        “It’s our war against the extremes,” says
                        Marvi Memon, the most outspoken of
                        the visiting delegation. But she wants to
                        know why the U.S. isn’t doing more to
                        aid the displaced persons. Why isn’t
                        there a number to call on television the
                        way there was for the victims of
                        Katrina? Listening to Memon and the
                        others was like having a fire hose turned
                        on as the grievances kept coming. In a
                        written statement she had prepared for
                        me, she said Americans should
                        substantiate their claims about the
                        whereabouts of bin Laden “with GPS
                        locations,” or else stop making such far-
                        reaching assertions that Pakistan is
                        harboring him. President Obama
                        believes very strongly that we should
                        look to the future rather than the past,
                        but in Pakistan, the legacy of mistrust
                        and miscalculation can’t be set aside-
                        anymore than it can here at home.

                        is ready for FDI- so for now they should

May    28, Visit        US    Raleigh North Carolina: Met with a
2009                          Senator and member of House of
                              Representative to discuss Pak-US

May    29, Visit / Press US   Press Note in US media:
2009       Note               Another worry — what Marvi Memon
                              calls the “minds and hearts” factor —
                              looms as American forces gear up
                              across the border in Afghanistan to rout
                              al Qaeda leaders and their Taliban
                              sympathizers from mountain hideouts.
                              “We need to dialog better with people,”
                              she said. “Mostly what you see in
                              Pakistan is emotional scenes and very
                              anti-American slogans. It’s very popular
                              to be anti-American back home.”
                               “If we don’t get this right, we are going
                              to lose the minds and hearts just like
                              this,” Memon said, snapping her fingers.
                              “It is very, very critical to get this right. . .
                              . We appreciate the fact that the United
                              States is giving aid, but it’s not just a
                              question of getting the money in. It’s a
                              timing issue. The timing has to be
                              immediate.”
May    29, Visit / Press US   Minneapolis Star Tribune
2009       Note               When it comes to the United States,
                              though, her views reflect those you
                              often hear in Pakistan. So I will share
                              them. They do, indeed, illustrate an
                              urgent need for dialog at the very least.
                              it offends Memon to hear Obama talk
                              about Pakistan and Afghanistan in the
                              same breath.
                              “It whips up the sentiment that Pakistan
                              and Afghanistan are on the same
                              levels,” she said. “Pakistan is a nuclear
                              state. Pakistan is battling Talibans.
                              Pakistan does not want to be put in the
                              same category as Afghanistan.” We will
                              defend our sovereignty at all costs. And,
                              for that, we as a nation are united.”
                              “Nobody talks about the nukes in India,
                              but the West has an obsession with our
                              nukes. And the West needs to get rid of
                              its fears about Pakistan’s nukes
                                 because the Pakistani armed forces are
                                 fully capable of securing our nuclear
                                 assets and as a parliamentarian I have
                                 full faith that they will do so.”
May    30, Article   US          Article in Pioneer by me.
2009                             As I travel through the U.S. at the
                                 invitation of the U.S. State Department, I
                                 can’t help but notice that the word
                                 “Pakistan” has become synonymous
                                 with “terrorist base for al-Qaida.” To a
                                 moderate liberal member of parliament
                                 like me, this is a painful depiction of my
                                 country. Through dialogue with the
                                 people of the U.S., this misperception
                                 about Pakistan may perhaps be
                                 removed. We have some convergence
                                 of interests but the mechanics of the
                                 relationship are not mutually beneficial. I
                                 am convinced that I, as a younger
                                 generation of politicians, can be part of
                                 the fix-it team that can steer my nation
                                 toward being just, developed and
                                 moderate. But I need trust and dignity
                                 for my nation from you.
May    30, Article   National    My article published in US media.
2009                 Security/   There is no dearth of allegations in
                     Article     Western media that Pakistan’s nuclear
                                 assets are exposed to extremist control
                                 and that political instability in Pakistan is
                                 exposing the world to a disaster.
                                 Nothing could be further from the truth.
                                 The implications of the allegations

                                 political agenda- objective now is to

2009                    Washington.
                        I put the question to the CIA officials
                        whether they were doing anything about
                        changing the perception that said in
                        Pakistan that they the Americans were
                        supporting the Talibans destabilize
                        Pakistan through their links with
                        Baitullah- of course there was no
                        answer- the reason she was so blunt
                        was because this perception is rampant
                        in Pakistan and if they were there for
                        dialoguing they must discuss ground
                        perceptions- secondly she asked about
                        where Dr. Afia was- ofcourse she got no
                        answer to that one either-

June    4, Visit   US   In Washington.
2009
                        Visit to Brookings Institute: I discussed
                             IDPs issues and gave my views- they
                             also discussed what they had written in
                             May 30 issue on nukes- ludicrous
                             assertions that we were diverting funds
                             to fight militants to nuke program. I
                             rejected this firmly- I also gave a 3
                             pager analysis of why Pakistan nukes
                             were safe. Next was the issue of jihadist
                             state or most dangerous state- she gave
                             a list of evidences against India totaling
                             37 items which held India responsible
                             for unfair policies and state terrorism- I
                             told them that instead of contributing to
                             Pakistan’s destabilization by insinuating
                             about our nuke weaknesses they had a
                             responsibility to improve bilateral by
                             doing research on Fata and Madrassa
                             mainstreaming which was far more
                             useful to get rid of extremism- plus I
                             managed to get research interns from
                             Pakistan approved long distance so we
                             could have our voice

                             evidence of state terrorism and asked
                             them to be fair to Pakistan. I will be

2009                                       Zardari said “INDIA NOT A THREAT”.
                                           This is a wrong threat perception.
                                           They are saying , American’s line
                                           Taliban are threat but Indian are not.
                                           Indian, whatever they are doing only for
                                           to make us destabilize and spreading
                                           extremism, which is threat But
                                           Mr.Zardari do not understand this issue.
                                           He needs to explain to Parliament on
                                           what basis he is making this statement.

July    21, Meeting           US           I attended the meeting of Pakistan
2009                                       Chamber of Commerce-USA, I said that
                                           Pakistan had signed 47 bilateral
                                           investment treaties, but the current draft
                                           of bilateral investment treaty with the US
                                           was not acceptable. I stressed that the
                                           US first sign FTA with Pakistan and then
                                           both the countries should negotiate on
                                           BIT. I said the US had already signed
                                           BIT with many countries and did not put
                                           any conditionality for signing BIT,
                                           whereas conditions were put on
                                           Pakistan for signing this document.

Aug     27, Press Note    US         Marvi Memon said Kerry Lugar bill an
2009                                 affront to Pak sovereignty. The Indian
                                     PM has had the audacity of accusing
                                     Pak of using terror as an instrument of
                                     state policy because Pak government
                                     by accepting Kerry Lugar terminology
                                     has accepted the same unfortunately.
                                     The text of the Kerry Lugar bill is a
                                     testament to this issue: “ceasing
                                     support, including by any elements
                                     within the Pakistan military or its
                                     intelligence agency, to extremist and
                                     terrorist groups, particularly to any
                                     group” This has weakened Pakistan’s
                                     international position. The aid given in
                                     the Kerry Lugar Bill is miniscule
                                     compared to what has been offered by
                                     US to its other allies. Any compromise
                                     on our sovereignty is unacceptable.

                                          are tantamount to holding Pakistan

                                          Bill. I said you claim that you are a
                                          democratic government, but frankly you
                                          have not shown the character of a
                                          democratic government because the
                                          democratic government would not have
                                          sold out for peanuts or for a lot of
                                          money and you certainly have sold out,
                                          it seems because anyone who accepts
                                          the Kerry-Lugar Bill in its current
                                          conditionalities is selling out on the
                                          sovereignty, the defense and the
                                          nuclear programme and should be held
                                          liable for high treason. (I analyzed this

                                          rejected explanatory note on legal and
                                          national security grounds. I said
                                          Pakistan needs the aid but not at the
                                          cost of our independence. As such the
                                          aid coming through the KLB needs to be
                                          rejected in totality or else Pakistanis will

                                          Will the Minister for Health be pleased
                                          to state:

                                          (a) whether it is a fact that proper
                                          arrangements have not been made for

2010                                      in ET. Obama said it has the right to

                                          Pak permission if it doesn’t act, he also
                                          said India has the same right. Obama’s
                                          public statements don’t treat Pakistan
                                          as a dignified ally in the war on terror. A
                                          recognition, of exactly how low the
                                          graph has gone is urgently required for
                                          us to regain our dignity.

2010                                      expenditures on foreign affairs and said
                                          despite heavy spending, Pak could not
                                          formulate its independent foreign policy,
                                          vis-…-vis Kashmir and other issues.
                                            Govt had relegated country’s foreign
                                            policy to other powers.
