dear imran I am not a constitutionalist but this is how constitution goes:

Go to article 247. All your query is solved in this article:

1-President has unbridled powers as far as tribal areas are concerned. And in all the strikes of government in tribal areas , president had the authority to enforce military might and muscle by the constitution.This is why there has been no suo moto action or any writ claimed by supreme court or any other court.

(3) No Act of Majlis- e- Shoora (Parliament) shall apply to any Federally Administered Tribal Area or to any part thereof, unless the President so directs, and no Act of Majlis- e- Shoora (Parliament) or a Provincial Assembly shall apply to a Provincially Administered Tribal Area, or to any part thereof, unless the Governor of the Province in which the Tribal Area is situate, with the approval of the President, so directs; and in giving such a direction with respect to any law, the President or, as the case may be, the Governor, may direct that the law shall, in its application to a Tribal Area, or to a specified part thereof, have effect subject to such exceptions and modifications as may be specified in the direction.

(4) Notwithstanding anything contained in the Constitution, the President may, with respect to any matter within the legislative competence of Majlis- e- Shoora (Parliament), and the Governor of a Province, with the prior approval of the President, may, with respect to any matter within the legislative competence of the Provincial Assembly make regulations for the peace and good government of a Provincially Administered Tribal Area or any part thereof, situated in the Province.

(5) Notwithstanding anything contained in the Constitution, the President may, with respect to any matter, make regulations for the peace and good Government of a Federally Administered Tribal Area or any part thereof.

(6) The President may, at any time, by Order, direct that the whole or any part of a Tribal Area shall cease to be Tribal Area, and such Order may contain such incidental and consequential provisions as appear to the President to be necessary and proper:

Provided that before making any Order under this clause, the President shall ascertain, in such manner as he considers appropriate, the views of the people of the Tribal Area concerned, as represented in tribal jirga.

(7) Neither the Supreme Court nor a High Court shall exercise any jurisdiction under the Constitution in relation to a Tribal Area, unless Majlis- e- Shoora (Parliament) by law otherwise provides: Provided that nothing in this clause shall affect the jurisdiction which the Supreme Court or a High Court exercised in relation to a Tribal Area immediately before the commencing day.

regards. AH. Dont take tension yaar .

M3: isnt it better to say yes or no instead of it can be or it cant be?
sir that depends on the questions. bla bla.....
M3: what do u think is better a bad decision or no decision?

G: ok.tell us about enlighten moderation/
i said a good concept to portray soft image of islam

then he came to my beard. questions why having? why trimmed? will u ask ur younger bros to go 4 prayers? will u ask ur subordinates?
i replied yes but will not as such pursue them. he said islam says other thing. use stick 4 child when he is 10/
i tried this & taht yes no.
G: thankyou gentleman.
tahnkyou sir
and i left the room.

well it was a good sitting. except last part. i was cool and confident and even at times a bit aggressive.

i even obstructed the general once. in the end. perhaps when he was discussing moderation. he said first listen my q and then answer. i said sorry & a bit of smile. actually i was smiling at many times especially when they cross questioned & i was expecting that q.

Great....I m impressed by the way u conducted urself...However u could ve made ur answers more impressive by being impartial ( somewhere u supported Army for doing things that are nt within its domain to do ), argumentative ( U could ve taked more abt Kashmir problem and Kalabagh Dam ) and daring ( U could ve said that desecration of ur temples were religiously motivated and no political motive could be attributed for it )......

thanx dear JANNI ABRO SAHIB for ur analytical view of my interview...i think my support for the army was not without reasoning n apart from this i did not suported army bluntedly...on kashmir and kalabagh dam i wanted to say more however thier gestures and facial expressions stoped me as if they had got thier answers and thus they proceede as for as Desecration of Mandirs are concerned i did not say that undaring or i had no fear of those army generals etc however i said what i saw...i myself witnessed those events n it was realy not fully religiosly motivated.. saw the politics behind those attacks...HOWEVER IM MUCH PLEASED BY YOUR ANALYSIS THANX AGAIN...

Well Done Mr.Giyan Chand,

Your interview generally spkng went quite balanced.If it went exactly as u wrote here,then i have no doubt tht ur written score was too big to b overlooked by the panel for some allocation n it really seemed interested having a minority guy infornt of them(a rarity indeed) with patriotic zeal outbursting n overall a positive,confident attitude.And more cuz u belong to minority n wd join a few handful of minority CSPs in our 60 years history,contrary to what v see a number of indian muslims ending up ICS officers.Its what our Quaid had dreamt about n a and such a panel do take such things into account.

On Kashmir,yes u contradicted urself.When u support 4 points of General,wherefrom comes Plebicite?U shud rather have said tht General's points are very much in line with stuff like plebiscite n then wd have justified them in how much they are alternate to a plebiscite n dont loose sight of Kasmiri people's wishes.

On Desecration of temples,he did'nt ask u religiously motivated but,indigenous reaction,so u shud have rather said that indigenous to the extent of politico-economic level,n religiouis to the extent of religious extremism in some local circles

Anyways,over all it went as a good interview and b positive for good result.May u succeed in ur endeavors.

Default interviews conducted at Quetta centre

well dears , here are some interviews conducted (inclucding of myself) in 2006 at quetta centre. i had collected this by then to send it to my friend who was appearing from other centre. so , here are these for u all ..

first of all .. i may tell u some of general things regarding interview then i move to actual interview of the candidates conducted here.
it was almost general interview conducted from every one here in the centre.. they were friendly nd congenial atmosphere was what they wanted to give to the candidates.
..the Psychological interview mostly depended on the background of the candidate and the things he had written in his psychological test .. especially the question the candidates had answered regarding their personality traits and so on.. and the events of the year that u had written ... however in some cases they did not touch the events one had written in the psychological test....
they rarely touched the subjects whether optional or compulsory... how ever some of the candidates were hurled with the questions from optional subjects but they(interview panel ) touched only the basics or general view of the subjects .
The most of the time was consumed by the Chairman himself and from thirty minutes (as here every one was made to sit for thirty minutes) hardly other members asked simply two two questions or so .... otherwise it was chairman himself that he tried to irritate,instigate, pressurise, and puzzle the candidate.... he most of times counterargued on the question .. sometimes with smile (u know) and sometimes behaving as if he gets angry over certain responses.....
however.. .good thing about him(chairman).. rather for all .. that they gave sufficient time to candidate to express himself .. they did not intervene... while the candidate was talking ... only they listend calmly and saw how does the candidate express himself .

Candidate one :

his optional subjects: economics, political science and constitutional law.
(following is the interview of the very first candidate at the interview..)

chairman: come , come (very warm welcome to the candidate)....
chairman: first of congratulations to u .. on passing exam ..
chairman: introduce ur self..:
chariman: ok gentle we are not here to ask what is two plusttwo.. so be relaxed..
chairman:what do u know about balochistan crises?
Q: what is the future of Balochistan?

chairman:should Bugti have been killed?
Q: if you are finance minister how would u plan for the developement of blaouchistan.
Q:Indo - us deal
Q:Should we form another province combing Pathans of NWFP , balochistan and afghanistan?
Q: why police?
Q: heard that baloches are lazy.. is it true?
... and it is over.. and now the chairman :ok gentleman.. now go and promise tht you will not study atleast for three days.. just would enjoy the life..
Candidate: thnk u sir.. thank u all ...

Candidate no: 2( interview)
after the introduction to him ...( the candidate belonged to area somewhere near dera Bugti)

Q:wht do u think about balochistan
Q:Baloch say that cantonment should not be built why? is it not against developement tht baloch think ..?
Qo u think balochistan crises can be solved?
Q: NFC ----interim it satisfying for Balochistan?
Q:Tell something\anything about Russian Constitution?( his was constitutional law subject... the candidate told the feautre of the russian constitutional law.. and they did not further ask him questions)
Q:Baloch do not like musharaf ; what do u say if he is elected as president for another five years?
Q:The world cup of cricket is approaching .......if u are made captain of pakistani team what would be ur strategy with regard to selection of team and winning the world cup( candidate had mentioned in his hobbies .. cricket as favorite sport)

Q: Opportunities come or created?
Q: are u baloch first or Pakistani first?

Thank you..

After welcoming the candidate and offering him a seat...

chairman: tell us something about ur family background, your academic record and what have u been doing all these years.
Chairman: it seems most of time u have been in sindh .. so u might know much about sindh?
Chairman: ok ; construction of Kala bag dam ..... what is the viewpoint of Sindh.... ok tell us first of all point of view of sindh, then of federal govt. or wapda .. then in the last tell about ur point of view...

chairman: you talk about consensus... but Musharaf sahib in his speeches says" that he would go for construction of kala bag dam... he does not talk abou consensus..
Chairman: do u think sindh will go violent if dam is constructed?
chairman: ok suppose....the dam is built... there will be for some months..say one or two .. protests and processions ... then every thing will be ok.....why should we not go for dam..

now chairman gives turn to other members..
Member 1: what do u say about corruption?
=======: how can we eliminate corruption?
=======:said it is that NAB has been formed only to haunt the politicians.. is it true?
.... while the candidate was busy answering the question of member one that other member intervened saying.." can i ask question"'''''' but chairman told him to wait..
Member 2: what are the similarities with regard to consensus of kashmir and kala bag dam..
member 2: how do u think consensus can be developed? what should we do?
member #3: well.. i have only two questions for u ...why police not on the top? ( this member who is retired i.G asks question to evry one about police .. and likes them to answer positivily abut police group)

Member # 3 : you have written here that u contribute letters and articles to newspapers.. so being a journalist have u ever written about national integration..?

ihs has a spectacular aura aboutihs has a spectacular aura aboutihs has a spectacular aura about

(as far as my answer to jurisdiction of supreme court is concerned, it cannot be said wrong. coz although, in constitution, it is written that supreme court has no jurisdiction in tribal areas, but it is also said that it is the custodian of human rights of pakistanis. on this point, a petition was filed by gen(r) hameed gull and others that supreme court should clear this point and SHOULD take notice in this regard. on it c.j (iftikhar ch) said that he will look into this issue only if someone from tribal areas will come 2 him 4 his protection of human right. so he admitted that this matter is in confusion & this should be cleared)
Pray as everything depends on God, work as everything depends on you
