New SIMs to be Posted to Postal Addresses: Rehman Malik

rehman-malik_copyA new revelation has been made by Mr. Rehman Malik, the Minister Interior, also notorious for issuing useless and senseless statements, when he was yesterday found saying that PTA would be directed to dispatch every new SIM card to the subscriber’s home/office addresses from May 1st (without clarifying the year, but we are supposing he meant 2012).

Mr. Malik disclosed this at a meeting with members of Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) in Karachi.

Telecom industry is clueless of the development, neither Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has received any orders regarding the issue.

Mr. Malik is largely known for issuing random statements about telecom industry every other month and then doing nothing about it. Here are few examples of Mr. Malik’s statements which were never materialized:

It merits mentioning here that this is not the first time Mr. Rehman Malik has thought of asking PTA to send new SIMs at subscribers’ postal addresses. It was July 2010, when he last issued exactly similar verdict – but again, it was never implemented.

    This is utten BS from none other than the star wars yoda of bullsh*t himself aka Rehman Malik!! PTA has put up no such directive to any of the operators and neither will any operator agree to such nonsense in the first place…….

    This can be ignored as yet another runtime error for the single core, low memory and cache choked minister…

    He should have been awarded Phd in comics. This man is the symbol of shame for Pakistan.
    I wonder if he orderd the next day to renew everyone’s CNIC on daily basis or he may order PTA to verify the identity of caller prior to every call!!
    It will be a useless step( if implemented)

    • Dr. Rehman Malik

      -I wonder if he orderd the next day to renew everyone’s CNIC on daily basis or he may order PTA to verify the identity of caller prior to every call!!

    A minister who cannot implement his orders in his own cabinet members wants the public to accept Mr. Malik should get his mental health checked he at times speaks with a toad in his mouth
