Pakistan is hit by its worst locust plague in 30 years: Insect swarms DECIMATE entire harvests as country declares nationwide emergency

Pakistan's farmers are struggling to combat the worst locust plague in nearly three decades as insect swarms decimate entire harvests in the country's agricultural heartlands and send food prices soaring.

Heavy rains and cyclones sparked 'unprecedented' breeding and the explosive growth of locust populations on the Arabian peninsula early last year, according to the United Nations.

The insects have since fanned out and wreaked havoc on farms from East Africa to India before making their way into Pakistan from the desert on the country's southwestern border with Iran.

The crisis is so severe that the government has declared a nationwide emergency and urgently appealed for help from the international community.

Pakistan court gives green light to women's march - with conditions

A Pakistani court on Tuesday gave the go-ahead to the country’s largest women’s rights event but told organisers to ensure participants adhere to “decency and moral values”.

The country-wide event, known as Aurat March, using the Urdu word for women, has been attended by tens of thousands over the last two years to mark International Women’s Day on March 8.

A court in Lahore was petitioned last month to place restrictions on the organisers and participants of the march, whom the complainant said had an agenda to “spread anarchy, vulgarity, blasphemy and hatred” against Islam.

The court told organisers to consult local officials to finalise arrangements for the event, which campaigns for reclaiming space for women as well as the LGBT community.

Global watchdogs have expressed concern in recent years over what they see as a growing clampdown on rights campaigns in Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The organisers have to see these threats coming, and do their best to counter them, as peacefully and responsibly as is humanly possible. MARCHERS, PLEASE HAVE THE HORSE-SENSE TO PROTECT EACH OTHER HERE!!

As these documented stories go, the level of violence against Pakistani women, is horrific. From Wikipedia, we have the following statistics:

"According to a study carried out in 2009 by Human Rights Watch, it is estimated that between 20 and 30 percent of women in Pakistan have suffered some form of abuse. An estimated 5000 women are killed per year from domestic violence, with thousands of others maimed or disabled."

As you can see, from the postmark on the last article, this problem goes back a long way.

This is one of the many reasons you would NEVER find me in Islamabad; as an "uppity gal" who peacefully and logically speaks her mind, and as a Christian, I would probably get both assassinated and dismembered in this country, before I got home, most probably arriving back in pieces, as did Adnan Kashoggi.

The Modi Mob Might Be Planning A Massive Anti-Muslim Massacre

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That vague, but persistently awful, and chronic, sound you are hearing, is that of Mahatma Gandhi, not thumping from the grave, as he was cremated after his assassination, but thumping from heaven itself, and screaming to the Indian government, "What the hell do you think you are doing to my India, which should have been a place where people of all faiths should be able to live together, peacefully and responsibly"?!?!?
