Good morning, *|MERGE1|*.  It’s October 12. We have survived Monday, Congratulations! 
I hope you are having a great week. Lately, I have been really anxious about the increasing cases of dengue in the country, and especially in Lahore. The Punjab government announced a medical emergency in the province and a field hospital has been set up in Lahore.  
Along with a sanitiser, start carrying Mospel with you too, and avoid outdoors!

PM Khan’s interview with the Middle East Eye 

Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Monday in an interview with the Middle East Eye, said, “Money is a big player now. For the players, as well as for the cricket boards. The money lies in India, so basically, India controls world cricket now.” 

“I mean, they do, whatever they say goes. No one would dare do that to India because they know that the sums involved, India can sort of produce much more money,” PM Khan added.  

 What else did he discuss? 

PM Imran Khan, while speaking to David Hearst and Peter Oborne of Middle East Eye, discussed a wide range of topics, including the current situation in Afghanistan, relations with the United States (US), India’s role in occupied Kashmir, allegations against China regarding the treatment of Uighurs, and cricket. 

 About TTP 

PM Imran Khan said Islamabad is trying to speak to elements within the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) who can be reconciled “because it’s from a position of strength”. 

“I always believed all insurgencies eventually end up on the dialogue table, like the IRA [Irish Republican Army] for instance,” he explained.

 Noor Mukadam Case Update

The Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan directed the prosecution to submit evidence against Zahir Jaffer’s (prime suspect in Noor Mukadam’s murder case) mother Asmat Adamjee, reports Dawn. 

The court was hearing the bail pleas of the parents of Zahir Jaffer, which were previously rejected by the Islamabad High Court (IHC). 

The petitioner’s lawyer Advocate Khawaja Harris stressed that the case against the petitioners was not based on solid evidence, rather the allegations were highly speculative. 

Justice Umar Ata Bandial, during the hearing, pointed out that there was no mention of Adamjee in the IHC’s order denying bail to the duo. 

 “We are just trying to get the hang of the Noor Mukadam case,” Justice Bandial said while adding that the court was seeking information only to understand the facts of the case. 

Khawaja Harris argued that the order to complete the trial in two months will affect the right to a fair trial. 

To which the court said that the right to a fair trial was a must. “But the delay in handling the case only adds to anxiety.” 

Justice Bandial adjourned the court till October 18. However, last week a sessions court in Islamabad fixed October 14 for the indictment of 12 suspects in the case.
