Having worked for him from 1974-1979 at Pakistan Consulate New York I can claim to have known him much better than so many. During my career I have worked in many Government and Private Companies including top companies in New York, I have yet to see a an Executive / Person who has so much command, Administrative skills and the ability to work and take work from his subordinates, as Mr. Fatmi does. P.M. Nawaz Shariff is lucky to have him in his Team . When Ambassador Iqbal Akhund told him to take care of MR. Z.ABhutto trip to New York and I congratulated him , he told me now we have to ensure that the trip goes smoothly as P.M. Bhutto does not tolerate any mismanagement. And it was owing to Mr. Fatmi's leadership a remarkable trip. With P.M. Nawaz Shariff he did it again. Congratulations...

S Nazar Fatimi Chitral DEMOCRACY and PLURALISM -2 God is common and absolute sustainer of the entire universe, not for the Semitics, nor for Muslims but for all.. So Pluralism with ADJUSTMENT and HARMONY is the best way for dialogue and harmonious development in human civilization. Democracy the west follow is not meant for the third world or majority of the world, because west does not and cannot recommend democracy in Economic, Social, Education, Health and in the standard of living. Then how will u define democracy sans the above factors. If majority of the people deprived in this global village and human family, then what will be the meaning of democracy and globalization? We tire not speaking about HUMAN RIGHTS but follow the system and democracy in which there is no accommodation, room for human rights. Without equal opportunity democracy and SELECTIVE DEMOCRACY is just exploitation and manipulation of human family and global village. You deny RIGHTS for the majority of Human beings and invest in your dogs and cats, OR spend trillions on the destruction of human being, and still play jargons of HUMAN RIGHTS, is very ironic You get the resources your self and the opportunities specially restricted for yourselves and the majority p global population starving, and die squirming for a drop of water, then HOW REAL democracy will flourish and harmonious development goal achieved. Wait the next episode and contact…ssfatimi@gmail.com S Nazar Fatimi Chitral

Many religious leaders on the global surface are playing their ROLES, constrctive roles, for the benefit of the humanity and LOVE. They have great surge and urge for the development of pluralistic approach in the fast changing world. His Highness Aga Khan is one of these luminaries who without sacrificing his traditional ROLE voicing aloud for Pluralism, Dialogue, Harmony, and Harmonious development of humanity. He has got a hollistic approach about the recent ongoing global trend of “clash and conflicts” of the West against the Rest. The ethnic nature, idealogical esoteric labyrinth sophistry, lack of transparency in AKDN circles not to be attributed to His Highness. As compare to other eastern NGOs there is still ample tansparency in the AKDN Institution.The people’s unrest about the AKDN Institutions is due to the gulf of social, status differences and lack of transparency, should be considered locally. The differences of the AKDN operating globally in about 20 countries, and locally (indigenous) controversial modus operandi, has its own political, social, economical and historical perspective which cannot be obliterated timely. However His Highness’s Role in fund raising and captivating the dire needs of the deprived peoples and poors in the neglected CA,SA,NA is hairs plitting endeavour will always be appreciated and praised. Hope His good followers would follow Him and bring good name to the community whose voice not yet been listened and heard. Preacher of Dialogue and Pluralism S. Nazar Fatimi
