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.

  • is’nt he the man with biggest international gateway. and 30% of calls need to route through that gateway.

  • Nice move, hourly call packages bhi band ker diyay jain ta kay awara logon say chutkara hasil ho sakay.

    opar comments main jo is new sim delivery method say naraz hain wo kia rozana sims roti kay sath khatay hain?

    samajdar banda aik he sim rakhta hay, aur jis country main MNP jesi facility ho wahan to bar bar sim change kernay ka sawal he peda nahi hota.

  • 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)

    • -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!!

      Guud idiyas! thanku! me will aarder these on nuxt speach :)

  • He’s a nonsense human who have lost his senses. Dont know how a country with sensible authorities can Put such non-sense people as ministers. Thats y today reputation of Pakistan stands in such bad state.

  • haha O:-) I cant help lauhing. what a comment Stone!<(@ ̄︶ ̄@)> cache choked minister!@( ̄- ̄)@ cool!:-P

  • cant see a reason to disagree with malik this time. Man there should be some proper way for issuing sim cards. Its really stupid that you can go to tyre punkcher shop and get sim damn it

  • Mere khyal se iss ka sab se behter hall hy k atm ki tarah 4 words ka pin hasil kia jaye pta se jo k nic no. k sath mobiles operators k data mein likha ho. jo b apni sim activate karwana chahe wo apna pin code bataye nhi to uss id per sim issue na ki jaye.
    old activation precedure mein mother ka name pocha jata hy wo to bohat sare logon ko pata hota hy

  • We need more efforts to make the telecom costomers feel safe.

  • 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
