Dr Muhammad Mahmud of IBA: A Self-made Industrious Faculty Member

Dr M Mahmud expired early morning of July 12, 2018. Inna lillah e wa inna ilaihi rajioon. May Allah reward him with the best of abodes in the hereafter. Aameen. Allah blessed him with 27th Ramazan night to start this journey.

He was an alumnus of IBA. His association with IBA started in 1967-68 in the accounts section and extended for over 40+ years. At the time of death, he was associated with IoBM as faculty and professor of finance and accounting department. He had been at IoBM for the last several years, and had also been HoD of Accounting and Finance department. As Dean, I found him to be diligent, conscientious professional who would take all his responsibilities seriously.
Dr Muhammad Mehmud (d. 2018)

I was his student of Financial Accounting during my first semester of MBA in 1985, and also took Cost Accounting from him in the next semester. This was at IBA, Karachi University Campus. I think he was starting his teaching career also during that year. My first semester as a student was also his first teacher although he had been an employee of IBA for the previous 20 years.

Self made, self taught, and industrious. Worked very hard to complete his MBA from IBA along with his job in the accounting department of IBA. Starting from an entry level position in the accounts section he worked meticulously through out his life to upgrade his competencies and qualifications, a persistence that distinguished him from others.

He tried for several years to go for a PhD abroad on scholarships that he obtained but was always thwarted in his efforts by the internal politics of those times of IBA where another PhD Faculty at IBA was considered as a threat by the then Director IBA. Finally he got the opportunity to go to Malaysia and complete his PhD. He would later achieve positions of professor, HoD and Dean at various institutions.

He was associated with KASBIT as Dean after his PhD.

He achieved positions of professor, HoD and Dean at various institutions. He supervised several MPhil thesis and was in the middle of several PhD supervisions when his call for the hereafter came.

The following description is from Ms Tazeen Arsalan who had been a faculty member when he was the HoD, and later succeeded as HoD, after Dr Mahmud got a stroke and could not continue as HoD.

"I first met Dr. Muhammad Mahmud few years back when he joined Acc and Fin department of IoBM. He later became HOD of the same department but I started to know him better when he became my MPHIL thesis supervisor. Journey of thesis for any student is a long, frustrating and tiring one. I still remember whenever I used to go to him to discuss my problems he would always show support but never gave me the answer and he always used to say that it’s your thesis, you need to find the answers yourself. It was extremely frustrating but when I stood to defend my thesis within five minutes I understood why he did it. The very next day I went to say Thankyou to him and also to apologize for not understanding his strategy earlier.

There were so many things which I learnt from him. He never took credit for anyone’s work and took pride in boosting the work of his colleagues and subordinates. Two years back when he had a paralysis attack and I went to meet him in hospital, even in an extremely bad health condition he was more worried that I was not drinking the juice which he offered me than himself. No matter how bad his medical condition was whenever I used to ask him about his health, he would always smile and say that I am much better. 
An extremely humble, polite and a true gentleman. Doctor Sb expired last night. I am sure Allah will grant him the best place in Jannah and give sabr to his family for enduring this loss. 
I will surely miss him a lot."
Nazir Ahmad Shaikh posted the following on Facebook on hearing about Dr Mahmud's passing away:
"Dr. M. Mehmood, HoD Accounting & Finance, IoBM expired today. He was my colleague at IBA in year1985 - 86 when I was serving at Centre for Computer Studies, IBA as Computer Project Admistrator. At that time Mr. Mehmood was Accountant of IBA. He was a dedicated person; very hard working and focused. He did alots of effort to become a distinguish faculty member at IBA. He was also my colleague at IoBM few years ago. Dr. Mehmood was very a humble and studious person. I am going to miss him. How lucky he was that he expired on 27th of Ramazan. Subhan'Allah. May the Almighty Allah Bless him and put him in the highest place at Jannat. Aameen"

Is Pakistan under a Judicial Martial Law? CJMLA parallel with CMLA

What is common between Chief Martial Law Administrator (CMLA) and a Chief Judicial Martial Law Administrator (CJMLA) or a Chief Executive Martial Law Administrator (CEMLA)?
"A creeping coup has taken place against the authority of the civilian government. The coup has taken place very quietly before the election," Mr Farhatullah Babar said in a seminar [1]. "It is different from the martial law of the past, with two resulting outcomes: the civilian government exists, but has no authority; press freedom exists, but journalists have no freedom."

This "creeping coup" is defined by this post as a Judicial Martial Law, a term which was formally demanded by Shaikh Rashid [2] on March 23, 2018. Despite pretensions to the contrary by the Chief Justice to have burred the Doctrine of Necessity [?], the scope creep of suo-motto notices across all organs of state and government demonstrate otherwise. This post argues that currently we seem to be under a Judicial Martial Law because the scope-creep of suo-motto has gone beyond the limits of the constitution and is now exhibiting the prominent distinctive attributes of a conventional army led martial law. The common attributes shared by the two versions of martial law include arrogation of the powers of the three pillars of the democratic state into a single person along with usurpation of the constitutional rights of due process of law and freedoms, specifically the right of expression, and a travesty of justice through an arbitrary and discretionary application of law and constitution through selective judgments that are contradictory to each other.

Lesson from Decade of Development of Dictator Gen Ayub Khan: Development without People Representation

Do we want to build yet another big dam without building consensus among all the affected provinces? Do we again want to forget the disastrous consequences in our history when development projects were steamrolled without people's consent? We see in our media yet another drive to hammer the benefits of Kalabagh Dam (KBD) while relying only on technical feasibility data and completely ignoring the real reason for opposition, namely, the trust-deficit of the smaller provinces as explained in the linked post. This post reveals the reality of Gen Ayub's construction of seven dams during 1960s, which is being used to heap accolades on the role of dictator in Pakistan's development. The use of this approach in support of KBD is again going to be a recipe for disaster and alienation if we fail to  understand that "a nation that forgets history is forgotten by history!" Our history tells us that development projects of the 1960s, which were forced down the throat of the people without their representation, had led to disastrous results. The case of seven dams built in West Pakistan during 1960s which is being promoted on the social media as a great gift of dictator Gen Ayub Khan to Pakistan was one of the greatest disservice done to Pakistan. The naive dictator, caught in the spell of his neo-colonial handlers, may have been hoodwinked into believing with good intentions that "big" development projects benefit the people. However, the grandiose development projects ended up confirming the suspicion of Bengalis of East Pakistan that they were being disenfranchised by West Pakistanis. The development was a ploy and its visible concentration only in the West, was only designed to benefit the West Pakistanis. This feeling of injustice and disenfranchisement exploded when Gen Yahya, another military dictator from West Pakistan, refused to handover the power to Awami League, the political party from East Pakistan led by Shaikh Mujeeb that had won the 1970 elections. This led to mass protests in East Pakistan, followed by a brutal army operation, which finally culminated in secession of East Pakistan in 1971 as Bangladesh.

A Tribute to Cricket for Spearheading my English Language Acquisition - Sports and Language Learning

I often see parents worrying about language skills of their children. A closer look at the hobbies of such children will indicate that they are not passionate about any hobbies especially sports. Here I would detail the role of cricket in spearheading my English language acquisition.  As my interest grew, with cricket and started following the cricket there were some milestones.

Role Model of Forthrightness, Calm and Resourcefulness: Daud Khaloo

I can still hear the distinctive sound of Daud Khaloo's Java motor cycle coming from afar in 1970s calm and quiet  Khawaja Nazimuddin Road portion of F-6/4 of Islamabad near China Chowk. It was the time when Shahrah-e-Quaid e Azam and the adjoining buildings  now known as the Blue Area had not yet been constructed, nor were there any high rises on Khawaja Nazimuddin Road.  The putt-putt of the Java motorcycle would announce his coming with Good Beti (Khala Jan) from the small bridge near our house in those clear, serene times of Islamabad. My mother and father would start issuing instructions on hearing this announcement to prepare for their reception.
Jawa motorcyle like this was brought by Daud Khaloo from USSR

Sardar Mamoo - Reliance and Tawakal on Allah- Life is to give and not to take

"Shah M Mubeen ur Rehman known in the family as Sardar was my ماموں  and veteran of wars of 1965 and 1971 (Baluch Regiment) and passed away with metastatic cancer in 1992. He along with his brother Shah M Ismail, served as رضا کار during Hyderabad Indian army action in 1948 and narrowly escaped death at the hands of Indian military. His older brother Shah M Farid ur Rehman was also a volunteer and was martyred during the migration following the partition of India, when the train he was travelling in was cut and the passengers were lynched by the mobs. His body was never found. An acquaintance who was sent to search for Farid Mamoo reported that he saw a body matching the description of the jacket that he was wearing.

Kalabagh Dam Use for Inciting Smaller Provinces against Federation-Technical Feasibility vs Trust-Deficit Issue

The opposition for big dams like Kala Bagh Dam (KBD) originates in smaller provinces from the same concerns and mistrust that we have for India building big dams up stream on Indus because it hurts Pakistan's lower riparian rights when the water is diverted away from us without our consent and approval. It is primarily a trust-deficit problem and is not technical or financial feasibility problem that many people typically think.

Opposition to KBD originates from the mistrust that arose in smaller provinces from not abiding by the promises made when Mangla Dam was being built. For example, the promise of not using a major link canal except during floods. It was feared that the link canal will divert water away from Sindh which actually happened as the land around the link canal got allotted to most powerful land mafia that forced the canal to remain open through out the year creating massive mistrust in Sindh n Balochistan. You need to read history why there is extreme mistrust in Sindh and other provinces for the lower riparian rights when water from big dams is not allowed to reach them.

Hence, campaign for big dams/KBD without obtaining consensus from smaller provinces is nothing but RAW's scheme to use politics to open a pandora box and further destabilize Pakistan by making the smaller provinces to rise in protest against the federation! Reviving KBD issue anew, now, just before 2018 elections, without trust building, appears to have been designed to infuriate smaller provinces against the bigger province, which seems to support RAW's and Indian agenda more than any pro-Pakistan agenda. 

It seems that RAW has compromised the psyche of political opponents and is using their political inclinations to sway sway the narrative in a direction that advances India's agenda. Currently, PTI youths are after Punjab leader, and would like any reason to bash NS and SS. What better reason than to use the water scarcity fear and KBD issue to slam Punjab, and hence its leadership!

 FB is a highly psychological n dangerous game, and I know it because I have been researching in this area. The idea is to use the prejudices, motivations and psychology of people to drive them in the direction of a carefully crafted bait. They managed Trump to win US elections with just $100k injection of funds in the FB promotions. They contrived to sway the decisions of precariously balanced voters in certain key states. Cambridge Analytica identified these precariously hanging votes of a few thousands and just before elections turned their votes in the direction of Trump through carefully crafted fury inducing news. If they could do this in USA, they can very well do it in Pakistan with a much smaller amount of $50k or even less to infuriate the smaller provinces against the big brother, and lead them to violence and disturbance. 

We saw how much Dictator Gen Musharraf tried hard to sell KBD during his all encompassing rule, but he failed even though he was at the height of his power. He miserably failed to convince the smaller provinces towards the feasibility of KBD. Dictator Gen Musharraf failed because he did not "build" trust through concrete measures and decisions. What makes gullible FB warriors think that this campaign will work today just before the  highly charged 2018 elections when things are being heated by RAW to meet India's nefarious designs. 

This is time for thinking people to take a step back, and try to understand the design of enemies and agenda of RAW.

Please, please note that KBD is not a technical/financial feasibility issue. It is actually a TRUST deficit issue. I repeat, it is a TRUST deficit issue. No amount of exhortations to the technical and financial benefits make any sense when there is  trust-deficit. Problem with KBD proponents is that they think it is not materializing because people do not understand its technical and financial feasibility. I call such people "dam-fools" who fail to appreciate the importance of removing the TRUST-deficit in order to resolve the stalemate! 

Case Against Kalabagh Dam

As one case see from these references that the case against Kalabagh Dam from the point of view of smaller provinces is too complex. It is complex because the major issue is that of trust-deficit. The issues are quite similar to those faced by big dams all over the world as seen in the next section.

Problems with Big Dams

Before jumping into for and against positions on KBD, I implore all to research big dams issue and lower riparian rights issue. Big dams and canals are controversial all over the world. Why?
"By 2015, the dam industry had choked more than half of the Earth's major rivers with some 57,000 large dams. The consequences of this massive engineering program have been devastating. The world's large dams have wiped out species; flooded huge areas of wetlands, forests and farmlands; and displaced tens of millions of people.
The "one-size-fits-all" approach to meeting the world's water and energy needs is also outdated: better solutions exist. While not every dam causes huge problems, cumulatively the world's large dams have replumbed rivers in a massive experiment that has left the planet's freshwaters in far worse shape than any other major ecosystem type, including tropical rainforests. In response, dam-affected communities in many parts of the world are working to resolve the legacies of poorly planned dams. Elsewhere (and especially in North America), communities are starting to take down dams that have outlived their usefulness, as part of a broader river restoration movement." [Problems with Big Dams

A Tale of Two Live Performances of Pastoral- 6th Symphony of Beethoven and My Musical Journey

Here I recall the two experiences of my life while attending two live performance of Beethoven's 6th Symphony, "Pastoral" and how they stimulated my love for Beethoven and classical music. The two experiences are spread apart by nearly thirty years. First was at UT Austin's Bates Recital Hall in 1989 conducted by Louis Lane and the second was at the Hong Kong's Cultural Center Concert Hall conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy in 2018, and this is a tale of my musical journey with Pastoral.

Metro Transport Infrastructure of Hong Kong and Detractors of Metro for Pakistan

I just returned from Hong Kong. I was astounded to see the metro bus-train infrastructure and roads infrastructure with elevated expressways and flyovers constructed not only in city areas but also on sea and between islands. There are over 15000 buses plying on over 500 routes. Crisscrossing the islands were 11 train lines with such heavy use. I often saw several routes buses on the same bus stop. Not to speak of was the ferry service between the islands. There is no need for residents to own cars living in the congested city areas.

Metro Buses and Trains vs Health and Education-Tryanny of OR

Why can't we come out from the tyranny of "or"?
It should not be either metro "or" health/education. It should be metro train/bus "and" health/education. 
As admirably explained in Malcolm Gladwell's book "Built to Last", issues should not be cast as "either-or". Great leaders learn the power of "and" !
It is not either quality "or" cost. It is both quality "and" cost.

A Tale of Two Operations- 1999 Kargil Operation and 1965 Operation Gibraltar

1999 Kargil Op & 1965 Op Gibraltar: Two pompous dictators, two huge fiascos, two strategic miscalculations by dictator generals who live their early life saying only "yes-sir", and then live the remaining life only hearing and expecting nothing except "yes-sir".

Interestingly enough both of these clandestine operations had several common characteristics :
  1. Both were secret operations. Only a very small clique within GHQ knew about the op. 
  2. Both were brain child of a select few, know-all, be-all pompous dictatorial generals with delusion of grandeur. Led by pompous Gen Ayub n Gen Musharraf.

Dictator Gen Musharraf as Slave Trader and Bounty Hunter: Costs of Joining War on Terror

How Corruption is being Eliminated in Pakistan since 1950s: Corruption as a Ruse to Maintain Status Quo

Sustained Elimination of Corruption since 1950s. All thanks to CJPs and our patriotic forces:
The corruption was first eliminated in 1951 when Liaquat Ali Khan was terminated and then corruption was eliminated by removing Khwaja Nazimuddin in 1953.
Corruption was again eliminated in 1954 when the Molvi Tameezuddin assembly was dismissed. The patriotic elimination of corruption was then institutionalized in 1955 with Patriot Chief Justice Munir's Doctrine of Necessity (DoN) and its ratification of dissolution of assembly. Corruption was repeatedly eliminated by Patriot Gen Iskandar Mirza for as many as 4+ times from 1956-58 under the watchful eyes of Patriot-in-Chief, CJP Munir. Then came patriot Gen Ayub and imposed Martial Law to eliminate corruption again with the blessings of CJP Munir invoking the DoN. Corruption was then eliminated by Gen Ayub for 11 long years from 1958 to 1969. Then Gen Yahya Khan came in 1969 to eliminate corruption and eventually eliminated it with his blitzkrieg surgical removal and amputation of the corruption filled half on 16th December 1971. CJP's patriotic DoN again ratified Patriot Gen Yahya's corruption elimination rule.

Can a Strong Clean Leader or Suomoto Judgments Solve All Problems of Pakistan

Is it possible to eradicate corruption by only changing the person at the top,  the man at the helm of affairs?
Unfortunately,  this seems to be the CJP's assumption behind the removal of the chief executive of the government i.e the Prime Minister. However, this assumption has been proven wrong by the disclosure of the corrupt 20 MPAs out of the 35 PTI MPAs in KPK under the certified Sadiq and Ameen,  righteous and sagacious leader,  Imran Khan!
Mere presence of IK at the top did not stop corruption in his own party. Even if we ignore that his move appears to be political and ceremonial,  and that it also seems crafted carefully and timed perfectly to a few weeks before the tenure of MPAs was to end as per the constitution [1], the point to note is that merely the presence of a righteous person at the top could not and did not determine the end of systemic corruption.
