    Saw something come through last night regarding this, it's gonna have to be something major to overshadow the disappointment of Atif Mian being replaced cos of his religious beliefs.

    Honestly feel like I've been punched in the gut this morning.

    He has requested each overseas Pakistani in European and western countries to contribute $1000 or more and those in middle east to contribute as much as possible.

    What have you done other than saying "what a disappointment"


    Like I said in another thread very easy to be a Noora and try and pass off as a PTI supporter.

    I'm not sure how much they will be able to raise by doing this. If a quarter of all Pakistanis living in the west contribute $1000 each, they will get to $500million. However, I think this is quite a liberal estimate, and I think they will get to $500million in total, including Gulf Pakistanis.

    Yeah, but then some of the not so rich ones would end up donating much less, or maybe nothing at all. It will probably balance out. My upper estimate would be $1billion, but I would expect around $500million.

    Malik Riaz types need to be forced to pay atleast a billion.... infact the top 100 richest Pakistanis need to be asked to pay massive amounts.

    PM Imran Khan urges overseas Pakistanis to contribute to dam fund

    ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday urged the overseas Pakistanis to donate generously for construction of dams in Pakistan to avert the looming water crisis, ARY News reported.

    In a video message, the PM urged the Pakistanis working abroad to donate at least 1000 dollars to the dam fund so that the water reservoirs could be constructed within time and within the estimated cost.

    “Our debt today stands at 30,000 billion. But one of our biggest issues today is the looming water crisis. When Pakistan was created; every pakistani had 5600 cubic-metres of water. Today that stands at only 1000 cubic-metres,” said the PM.

    He was of the view that delaying such projects increases the cost so his government wants to build water reservoirs on time.

    ” Overseas Pakistanis helped me build Shaukat Khanum and Namal university, I am appealing to you to help us build this dam,” said Imran Khan.

    The PM, while thanking Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar for taking the initiative, announced the merger of CJP and PM’s dam fund.

    “I want to appreciate chief justice’s efforts. It was not his job but he had to fill the void left by political leadership, now we have decided to launch and join the PM fund with the CJP’s fund which currently has Rs1800 million ” said the PM.

    If they are all made to pay back all the tax they have avoided, Pakistan would not need a bailout, nor would Pakistan lack the funds to undergo any projects, etc.

    Pakistanis have only collected Rs. 2 billion in 2-3 months of the dam fund, but to put things in perspective they spent somewhere close to Rs. 300-500 billion during baqra Eid. Mashallah our nation has its priorities right.

    Prime Minister Imran Khan spoke to the nation in a brief televised address on Friday evening to appeal for donations to the dams fund set up by the Supreme Court.

    "There is no question that we are faced with several significant problems," the prime minister said as he began the address, "but the biggest problem we currently face is the water crisis."

    Warning of the rapid depletion in Pakistan's water resources, the premier said the country would face drought-like conditions by 2025 if immediate steps were not taken.

    PM Khan urges overseas Pakistanis to donate for dams fund
    "I want to commend Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar [for starting the dams fund], but this was not his job," he said. "This was the job of civilian leaders who knew this was going to swell into a crisis but did nothing to thwart it."

    "I want to take over the fund-raising and want overseas Pakistanis to contribute like they used to do for the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital, he said.

    The prime minister asked all overseas Pakistanis to make as many donations as they can to the dams fund in dollars to plug the country's depleting foreign exchange reserves as well as provide funding to start building dams, which he said he would personally oversee.

    "I will safeguard your donations [against misuse]," he promised.

    "If every overseas Pakistani donates $1,000, we will have enough to build the dams ourselves," the prime minister said.

    "This fund will only be used for building dams. I know not every overseas Pakistani will be able to give $1,000, especially the ones working in the Middle East. To them, I would say that donate as much as you can. But the overseas Pakistanis in Europe and the United States, I want them to send at least $1,000 or even more if they can," he said.

    Read: Why a mega dam project cannot be crowd-sourced

    The prime minister cited the example of Egypt, which he said had launched a similar drive to build dams using its own resources.

    "They were not getting any external loans; no one will give us any loans from outside either," he said. "We already have so many loans that we are finding hard to repay, so no one is going to loan us anymore. We alone will have to build this dam, and we can. We just have to make up our minds."

    "I promise to you that I will safeguard your money," PM Khan added.

    Even if we go by this rate for a year that I doubt, we will only collect 0.75% of the total fund.

    This was a good initative by CJP to ensure govement seriousness about developing water solution. The goverment doing crowd funding is the most ludicrous idea ever.

    At-least PTI is giving importance to issues like water crisis, they have started well except for mishandling some issues.

    Water crisis indeed is a big issue. Bas gossip nai hai to ham is important issue ko lift nai karatay.

    Why just overseas Pakistani's? Why not non-Pakistani's? It is just like requesting someone for a Charitable donation. Heck if just 1% of the global non-Pakistani population contribute to this fund, it will make a massive difference

    The problem is the bulk of our population is the poor people of Pakistan, I believe they don't have any idea about this fund and haven't contributed anything. Sure they may feel that whatever they have or earn, they need it to provide food, shelter for their families which is why they will be hesitant to donate even a tiny fraction of their money into anything but the bulk of the money will come from these guys. They should be encouraged to donate Rs 10, Rs 20, Rs 50 or Rs 100 if possible.

    Imran Khan mentioned that the bulk of the funding for his cancer hospital came from school kids and poor people of Pakistan.

    Why doesn’t the government issue some kind of non resident Pakistani bond for this? You’d get much more than what you would simply through donations and you wouldn’t have to repay anything for 5/10/15 years (whatever the type of bond it is).

    Allegedly, phone cards used to be taxed, and they'd make $1billion annually, but CJP put a stop to it.

    He should ask government to do a wealth redistribution too. Overseas Pakistanis work hard for every penny they earned but people sitting in Pakistan on top of marabas of land passed from generations contribute nothing. If it has come down to this then everything should be on the table, especially the property owned by waderas and sardars who are the reason we are at this place.

    I think it was stopped by him because the phone companies were double taxing. Not 100% sure, but that's what I heard.

    Reality check for overseas Pakistanis

    CJP’s dams donation drive fails to woo overseas Pakistanis

    Out of Rs1.93 billion, donated to the Chief Justice’s Fund for the construction of dams, Rs1.91 billion was donated domestically.

    According to data available till September 6, a total Rs1.93 billion has been donated so far. Interestingly, only Rs20 million has been donated by overseas Pakistanis while the remaining Rs1.91 billion was raised locally.

    I've not read this article, however what i understand is if overseas pakistanis do have pakistani bank accounts and they donate through online portals or through their own pakistani accounts, it will always show up as a donation from within Pakistan.

    I, myself, have donated through this manner. I have a PKR account, and i used online portal to donate to the CJP Fund, however, i am a resident of Saudi Arabia. It doesn't show the clear picture. Only remittances from foreign locations are shown as donations from respective countries.

    This seems like a fruitless venture, better to catch tax evaders and improve tax collection in the country, The only way you will ever get enough money to build the dams.

    The original intention of CJP's dam fund was to get the conversation started and collect a small chunk of the money needed for the dams. If IK thinks he can completely fund the dam from chanda then he is no different than Khadim Rizvi.

    He's not that silly..... I think he wants people to feel that they have ownership of big projects.... bulk of funding will have to come from elsewhere.

    We talk all day and night on affairs of our country and how to improve it. Here we are presented with a small but practical step to take part in betterment of our country. I shall donate as much as I can.

    Of course the call for donation doesn't represent the only mean to fund the project. It is however a good initiative and to me represent the principle of helping oneself by own means. Just like in a big family when a big occasion is planned all family members work together and contribute as much as they can. Likewise this is a nation-wide project.

    So last night the chairman WAPDA said on TV that they need about 60 billion rupees to get the construction started and underway. We aren't going to be able to raise the entire funding for the dam but if it gets going then maybe after a year the Government will be in a position to secure proper funding for the project.

    Now is the time for the Maulvi Hazrat to contribute to the country. Tell the people that they should direct their Zakat and Sadqas to the Dam fund.

    Bring back the tax on mobile reloads. The previous rate was somewhat ridiculous but 10% should be reasonable enough.

    I wonder if the Sharifs will bother donating for this cause? Giving Rs. 50 corores will be nothing for them, depends on whether they care or not.

    Zardari Sahab allegedly holds assets of 1 billion pounds. That alone is 1/10th of the funding needed. Hopefully he gets caught soon.

    Whatever happened to the 12 million pound fine imposed upon Nawaz and Maryam? That would certainly help.

    What a disappointment

    I was expecting some plans for the future

    Trade Union have donated 10 crore.

    Malik Riaz have donated 10 croer.

    Salman Iqbal have donated 1 Crore


    So, progress has been good since PM's call. Also i have listened that Punjab cabinet is going to donated their 1 month salary for this cause.

    And those noonies who have calling it a Chanda compaign or bheek compaign, and they say it's hot Shaukat Khanum so don't ask/beg for money.

    Then i wonder, why do American presidents stood in line and thanked those people who donated Millions of dollars to storm hit people? America run on chanda?

    Also, when our Prophets used to call for it, richer Sahabas always brought their every thing and to help the whole nation / area.

    So people should not make fun of this, and should not downgrade this. At least, for the first time our PM has taken any positive initiative, involved his whole nation and also over seas Pakistani. Previous Govts never bothered about such issues because they were too busy in filling their pockets.

    And some people mentioning mobile taxes. Well taxes are same, only extra taxes are removed which were imposed during Zardari's era and that were totally unfair.

    Nation had to pay double tax on easy load, recharge, calls e.t.c e.t.c and now we have to pay single tax, which is right.

    He's struggled to get together £700m for Wembley stadium, he's not donating $1billion for a dam in a country he's abandoned for all intents and purposes.

    Some Pakistani's love a 'hail mary/ya'Ali madad' moment, expect a miracle, for instance half of Pakistan twitter reckon there's a mullah equivalent to Atif Mian who'll fix all Pakistan's economic woes.

    Yes. Think Atif Mian has contributed $1000, beautiful trolling on his part.

    Seen another Ahmeiyya donate $2500 & ask the same question you have, causing uproar on twitter, he asked for a refund but none of them answered him.

    No that is not a problem. We propagate hate against kaafirs all day but have no problem using the technologies and the conveniences that they have provided us with. In fact, ironically, we propagate hate using those resources.

    If we are comfortably with that shameless level of hypocrisy, we shouldn’t have any issues with using Ahmadi-funded, contaminated, haram water.
