image for Pakistan to rename Rawalpindi to "Isi-al-paki" to reflect its sovereignty
vell-come to ISI-AL-PAK-I

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN: The Pakistani Minister of Dis-Information has just gone before the international media saying: "We have decided to rename RAWALPINDI. Henceforth it will be known as ISI-AL-PAK-I"

Media reporters fatigued by G20 news clamoured all over each other to ask why this decision had been made. The Minister, Lie-a-lot Khan said: "Everybody in Pakistan knows India is our biggest enemy. That is why we are whole-heartedly supporting the Taliban - our real army. Only last night, while enjoying a copious-calorie-laden repast of fat-tailed sheep biryani at the Presidential Palace somebody commented on the name."

He went on to explain that the first three letters spelled "RAW" which is the Indian intelligence agency and the last four letters spell "INDI" which means 'India'.

"As we are a sovereign nation, we cannot allow such infidel names so we are changing RAWALPINDI to ISI-AL-PAK-I as a tribute to our own intelligence services agency - which is the true gommint of Pakistan"

Joyous sign-makers have seen a 120% rise in business in an otherwise bankrupt economy.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
