Pakistan- A year after the “ELECTIONS 2008”

March 10, 2009

                      “There is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan.”

More than a year ago when the first much monitored elections took place in Pakistan on the 18th of February a new wave of happYness went across the country. It cleared the way for PPP (on a sympathy vote), a come back from PML (N) and a winning defeat for PML (Q).  Much of the analyst said that people have given their mandate to PPP and PML (N) and rejected the policies and the government of PML (Q) and Pervez Musharaf. Media was  biased throughout the post elections and it kept the same tone and raised the bar even higher. And on the very first evening after the election results there were chants of “Go Musharaf Go”. 

I dont need to repeat in detail the promises which PPP and PML (N) made before the elections however, I would like to highlight a few of the  important ones.

  1. Reinstating judges
  2. Better economic policies
  3. Roti Kapra Makaan (Food, Clothing and Housing for poor)
  4. A safer and stable Pakistan etc etc etc.

Today i.e. the 10th of March 2009 the main character of judges team is yet to be restored(In my opinion he needs to be taken to trial for the turmoil caused because of him), Pakistan is in an economic turmoil Karachi Stock which was the  biggest and most liquid exchange in Pakistan. It was declared the “Best Performing Stock Market of the World for the year 2002”. had  a market capitalization of Rs. 3,746.203 billion (US$ 56.334 billion) having listed capital of Rs. 705.873 billion (US$ 10.615 billion). and was well above the 12000 index point now stands at only 5000+ points.  General public has become poorer and the over all buying power has fallen by 39% in the past year (according to the survey conducted by World bank). Finally, stability in Pakistan has gone to the worst possible stage (unfortunately). The so called greatest alliance of reconciliation of democratically elected  crooked cream of the crop has once again pushed Pakistan on the back foot of disasters.  This is the Pakistan which voters voted for, media campaigned for, lawyers rallied for and politicians did a deal for? 


In the current setup Pakistan has a dishonest head of state, a disillusioned governance in Punjab, a gloomy government in NWFP, a shaky setup in Balochistan and a fragile coalition in Sindh. The recent disqualification drama of Sharif brothers has plunged the country into new crisis of confrontational politics. The Sharif brothers who in their rule attacked the supreme court of Pakistan in order to throw chief justice Sajjad Ali Shah out, who also directly interfered in Army affairs, gave Taliban a freehand to make bonkers of madrassah and are responsible for ordering killings of 1000’s of youths are today talking about a DEMOCRATIC Pakistan.


The pathetic, politically motivated lawyers movement has damaged the countries justice system even more. If the judges, the lawyers etc were loyal to their profession then Pakistan’s Justice system would have been in a much better state. I know and I assume all Pakistani’s know how justice works in courts and how decision swings the way of money rather than material facts. In my opinion, any lawyer who participates in lawyers movement/ rally etc should be dismantled from his duties and thrown for a life time imprisonment. A new justice system should be given shape, with seperate court’s for women in order to process the cases quickly and effectively. Its time to clear the rubbish black coats out and flush their corrupt systems.

Above are only few of the internal failures. For external failures like drone attacks, Mumbai events and over all foreign policy has been a mega disaster on its own.

Someone said once right“Its only when wishes come true, one tends to realize what they had actually wished for” 


Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah said,

“Yet this is a truth people so easily seem to forget and begin to prize local, sectional or provincial interests above and regardless of the national interests. It naturally pains me to find the curse of provincialism holding sway over any section of Pakistan. Pakistan must be rid of this evil”

In a nutshell, the current political condition of the country is more about power rather than being about reforms for people. Sharif brothers are soo much lost in the greed of power that even after the attacks on the Sri Lankan team they had the cheek to hold a press conference against the government rather than putting their difference aside and standing ONE for Pakistan. I cant believe that people still support them even after the whole drama of them claiming of not signing a deal to go to Saudia, then the claim of signing a deal for 5 years and finally the Saudi evidence of a signed deal of 10 years.

One LOTA Imran Khan cant decide which way to swing, he has now been a part of every possible alliance, from being a supporter of Pervez Musharaf to even brushing shoulders with Qazi Hussain Ahmed. The irresponsible behaviour by the politician is being more and more damaging to Pakistan day by day.

Above this, the media which was awarded freedom by Pervez Musharaf became a concrete enemy of Pervez Musharaf is now trying to criticize the government with him. This tells us that how the balance of attention shifts from one ounce to another withthe passage of time. If only media was sincere , the aware-ness of Pakistani nation would be on a different level.

Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah said,

“We are now all Pakistanis–not Baluchis, Pathans, Sindhis, Bengalis, Punjabis and so on–and as Pakistanis we must feet behave and act, and we should be proud to be known as Pakistanis and nothing else” 

Its still not late for us as a nation to boycott all political parties and opt for a new setup by looking at facts and figures. Its time to use our voice, strength and mindset to change the path of our beloved nation. Its late but its never too late for a change.  These political parties which have always shifted sides based upon their interest have never given us anything and they never will. So lets kick them out  and select our own path of success….

“Yet another awaited coup, yet another lesson and nation will never learn”

Pakistan Paindabad, Pakistan Zindabad


  1. I guess in near future, PPP will come up with this statement that we full filled our all promises of
    1.(NOT)Reinstating judges
    2.(NO)Better economic policies
    3.(NO)Roti Kapra Makaan (Food, Clothing and Housing for poor)
    4.A(NEVER)safer and stable Pakistan etc etc etc.

    • I agree with you Ash!. This is how it is going to be. I was reading Zardari’s interview the other day and it was shocking to read that he actually thinks that economy is prospering and Pakistan is on the path of success (at the moment). He is clearly living in denial…..

      By the way. We have the same surname. 😉

  2. I agree with Zardari fino, you didn’t understand his context of this statement.
    by which rate, this governement is getting loans and grants from all over, and still they are able to fulfill their day to day luxuary wishes, every thing is going smooth, towards prosperity and in hramony for them :D;).

    Yup.. might be we are some far way belonging cozins;)

    • oh haan i didnt see it in that context…hehehe

      Well yeah we might be distant cousin’s …world is actually that small 😉
