Mobile Phone Registration Process in Pakistan


Many people are confused about taking mobile phones to Pakistan so let's clarify a few things:

If your stay in Pakistan will be under 60 days, you do NOT have to do anything. Just take your phone with you - no checking at the airport and no need to register anything anywhere.

If you are staying more than 60 days, you will need to register your phone either online or via text message. If you do not register your phone, it will stop working after the 60 day period. Please note that your phone will still work in UK. The block is only in Pakistan.

You don't have to wait in any queues at the airport (as was the case in the early days). You have 60 days to register your phone by visiting a website and entering your details. You can also register via text message instead of through the internet. You need your passport number and the phone's IMEI number in order to register a phone. One person can only register one phone.

You are only allowed to bring one phone. For additional phones, you need to pay a custom fee that varies depending on the handset. However, there are no checks at the airport to ensure that you only have one phone.

What is Jealousy?


Jealousy is when you look at others and you feel that you should have what they have. For example, you worked hard for something but someone else achieved it. If you become jealous and hold negative thoughts about that person, it reduces your imaan i.e. making you weaker. 

Jealousy is when someone has more knowledge than you and you ridicule them to make yourself happier. That does not improve you or do any good to you. In fact this emotion of jealousy becomes the cause of your destruction. Learn to be happy for others and accept that you can't be the best in everything all the time. 

Jealousy is when someone has a better car or a bigger house than you and you do whatever you can to harm them because you cannot digest their success. You pick out and highlight the negatives in order to downplay their success. 

Jealousy is when someone has a better job or higher qualifications than you and you say negative things about them to make yourself feel better. 

Jealousy is when someone is better looking than you and you pick out their bad points so people laugh at them. 

Jealousy is when despite being in line for selection, you are not chosen for the cricket team because someone better than you replaced you and you start to hate them. 

Jealousy is when people respect and look up to someone but you don't get that respect and attention so you feel bitter about it. 

Jealousy is when somebody prays five times a day but because you don't, you feel the need to criticise something else that they do. It is because you don't want them to be seen as better than you. Instead of bringing others down, it would be better to focus on improving yourself. But you find it easier to say things about people than to take action to improve yourself. 

Jealous people don't just say things about those they envy but they act against them, be it openly or secretly. They make it their goal in life to bring others down. In the process, they ruin their imaan as their thoughts, words and actions earn nothing but the displeasure of Allah. 

Nobody likes to admit that they are jealous yet jealousy is a major issue affecting human nature. We must be strong enough to overcome and bury this negative emotion before it overtakes us. At the first thought of jealousy, we must learn to stop it because if we don't, it will spread like a disease. 

We must do our best to avoid such harmful and negative feelings because they ruin what we have. Instead we need to think that if someone has done better than us, we must work harder in the future or perhaps there are better things that we have been blessed with that they don't have. 

A pure heart has no room for jealousy. You should be happy when you achieve something but at the same time be happy for others - because that is a quality that makes you a good person.

Amaan Ali Saqlain of Kathar - Youth MP in Rotherham


Amaan Ali Saqlain is the elected Youth MP for Rotherham , UK. He was elected in late February 2018. His family are originally from Kathar Azad Kashmir and it was a great achievement for him to become a Youth MP. His family and the local community are very proud of him.
During their term of office, Youth MPs work with their MPs, decision makers, councillors and local youth groups on the issues of greatest concern to their constituents. 

Nationally, the views of young people are represented in the UK Youth Parliament manifesto, which contains statements on the issues Youth MPs think are most important. Youth MPs across the UK work to give young people a voice – listening to marginalised groups, organising events, making films, meeting MPs, lobbying for change, organising campaigns and appearing in the media, all to amplify the views of their peers.

The role of the Youth MP  is increasingly being recognised at a local and national level. Some local authorities have given their Youth MPs equal status to their MPs, and UKYP works hard to enable MYPs to meet regularly with Government Ministers, Members of the Opposition and civil servants.

UKYP also works to promote the role and influence of MYPs to service providers, e.g. the transport industry and health services.
