DEAR COUNTRY MEN
Here are a few facts about my beloved country Pakistan which one should know and propagate.
WORLD'S 1ST LARGEST SALT MINE:
Khewra salt mine has proven reserves of 300 million tons. This reserve could not be consumed in 600 years even at the rate of 5 lakh tons production every day.
WORLD'S 2ND LARGEST COAL RESERVE:
Thar Coal Reserve are around 850 trillion cubic feet which are equal 400 billion barrels of oil. These coal reserves equal 618 billion barrels of oil. If used for power generation can yield more than 20,000 mg watts of electricity.
WORLD'S 3RD LARGEST GAS RESERVES:
Pakistan with gas reserves of 28tcf (current reserves 32.8tcf) So far about 52.7 TCF of gas reserves have been discovered of which some are in the nascent state while some are in the pipeline. In view of large indigenous reserves we still have to beg IRAN to give us Gas.
WORLD'S 4TH LARGEST COTTON PRODUCER:
Pakistan is the fourth largest cotton producer, third largest cotton consumer, second largest importer and with fourth largest cotton area. Real performance is counted in terms of yield per hectare and Pakistan has yield around Kgs 650 per hectare lagging behind dozens of countries.
WORLD'S 5TH LARGEST COPPER & GOLD RESERVES:
The Reko Diq is a large copper-gold porphyry resource on the Tethyan belt, located in the dry desert conditions of southwest Pakistan within the remote and sparsely populated province of Baluchistan. The Tethyan belt is a prospective region for large gold-copper porphyries. Barrick has a 50% interest in Tethyan Copper Company (the other 50% is owned by Antofagasta plc), which has a 75% interest in the Reko Diq project and associated mineral interests (for a resulting 37.5% interest in Reko Diq). As of December 31, 2007, Barrick's share of measured and indicated and inferred resources are 3.7 and 10.5 million ounces respectively. Barrick's share of measured and indicated and inferred copper are 4.3 and 13.4 billion pounds respectively.
Reko Diq is a giant copper and gold project in Chaghi, containing 12.3 million tons of copper and 20.9 million ounces of gold in inferred and indicated resources. The copper-gold deposits at Reko Diq are believed to be even bigger than Sarcheshmeh in Iran and Escondida in Chile. The Reko Diq copper deposits which is in the neighborhood of Saindak copper project, is four times larger in copper ore tonnage than Saindak. The most credible international surveys suggest that Reko Diq is one of the biggest undeveloped copper projects in the world with over 11 billion pounds of copper and nine million ounces of gold.

WORLD'S 5TH LARGEST ARMY:
It was amazing to know that my great country Pakistan has the 5th biggest army of the world, but this doesn't means that the biggest is also the strongest as well, because the strongest would be the one which would have the latest technology weapons where the morale of
Troops is high and the Army is a peoples Army and not a mercenary Army at the Beck and call of UNCLE SAM.

Only few countries on earth are lucky enough to have that much natural resources and wonders. THEN WHY ARE WE AT THIS STAGE?
What differentiates us from others? It's all about 'MINDSET'. Nothing will change as long as the 'MINDSET' of the leaders and the people remains in different and callous.
We're shameless now. We can't blame our leadership for everything. When we can force the Government to come on its knee and restore the CJ, who is of no use. Then why can't we force the government to use the resources of this country to make Pakistan the Next Super Power??? or at least REAL ASIAN TIGER???
It is the 70% of the silent majority which remains wordless, speechless & has a couldn’t care attitude that makes the difference.
YOU ARE THE SILENT MAJORITY
Stand up and be counted.
Show your social activism
Ask yourself What Pakistan are we leaving behind for posterity ?
Spread my message as much as possible.
Reject the present budget as it is a Jugglery of figures and it is like Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.
