Departure of A "HERO"

Departure of A "HERO"

Fatima Bhutto (http://pakistankakhudahafiz.wordpress.com)

Pakistan has become a very unusual place. In Lahore, the heart of Pakistani cricket, the Sri Lankan cricket team was attacked in broad daylight by masked gunmen carrying guns and rocket launchers, because you never know when a rocket launcher will come in handy during an urban attack. The government had been warned of a potential terror threat but, true to form, ignored it. After killing eight people, mostly policemen, and wounding several others including the foreign cricketers, the gunmen ambled leisurely away. They were caught on CCTV camera calmly mounting their motorcycles and surveying the scene before deciding they had other places to be. 

Immediately the cacophony of ludicrous claims hit the media. “The attack is to ruin our [the ruling party’s] image,” bellowed Raja Riaz, a Pakistan People’s Party hack. Er, no. “The motive was to damage the state of Pakistan and end cricket here,” said Imran Khan, head of the Tehreek-e-Insaf party. Er, no. The Pakistan cricket team are perfectly capable of ruining the state of cricket in the country on their own; masked gunmen are not required, thank you very much. Incidentally, on Monday night local police attacked the offices of Khan’s party brandishing Kalashnikovs and pistols. It’s probably not a coincidence that Khan has been openly critical of the Zardari government.

It’s fear. That’s what it is. It’s the state of a nation at war with itself. When vigilantes armed with sophisticated weaponry can attack a team of cricket guests (and there are no guests more esteemed in south Asia) in the middle of the afternoon, what they’re telling you is that no one is above the reach of the terror that has taken over Pakistan. It’s startling how adept this government has been at losing control of law and order, leasing out Pakistan’s stability for an increased role in the war on terror in preparation for the troop surge in Afghanistan, and generally running the country to rot.

“Droned” is a verb we use now in Pakistan. It turns out, interestingly enough, that those US predator drones that have been killing Pakistani citizens almost weekly have been taking off from and landing within our own country. Secret airbases in Balochistan – what did we ever do before Google Earth?

The PPP-led government, hailed as being “democratic”, capitulated to the Pakistan Taliban’s demands for sharia law in the Swat Valley in February. There was no vote, no referendum, nothing. The government, tired of fighting those pesky militants who’ve been burning down Sufi shrines and local girls’ schools, just declared that a part of the country would be ruled no longer by federal law, but by a myopically interpreted and Taliban-approved “Islamic” code. And verily it shall be.

We’ve just had senate “elections”. Of course, there are no actual elections involved: the ruling party puts forward winners and they end up in parliament. On Monday, in a shock move, President Asif Ali Zardari’s former attorney, who defended the erstwhile criminal on corruption and murder charges, was made chairman of the senate. What a gas!

Meanwhile, with Delhi still beating war drums over the November Mumbai attacks, our former dictator/president Pervez Musharraf travelled to India recently, and there he warned our neighbours of an all-out war should they strike Pakistan. He also let us know that he is ready to return to the call of political duty. Outsiders might be confused at this change in the situation – what’s he doing there? Didn’t he resign in August? Here’s the beauty of it all: Musharraf’s re-emergence has many middle-class Pakistanis excited and hopeful. Is he back?! A series of op-eds in a local English newspaper (not highly censored because no one reads them) was titled “Why I miss Musharraf”. When a dictator tickles your fancy, you know something has gone very, very wrong.

So, the mood in Pakistan is one of confusion. How did we come to this? How do we get out?

On the eve of spring, it is the same problems that blight the country’s poor – there is no electricity, there is no potable water, and food inflation continues to rise. The newspapers warned us this week that “load shedding” in the summer will be some 15 hours long, which is not that bad considering the fact that we’re sitting in darkness for 12 hours a day now. Pakistan has long missed its millennium target goals of eradicating polio, largely because we can’t keep the electricity going long enough for the vaccines to be properly refrigerated, so they keep going bad. And we’re a nuclear country, a grossly corrupt one at that.

The press censorship continues unabated with future threats of an absolute blackout on any criticisms of the government safely enclosed within the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act that the parliament is currently sitting on. The bill, which imposes jail sentences from three months (for having an email account not registered in your real name) to the death penalty, and criminalises the acts of “spoofing”, “spamming” and “character assassinating”, will apply to the width and breadth of the country and to any person, regardless of nationality or citizenship. It will crack down on all objectionable – the definition of what is objectionable is typically vague – messages sent via, but not limited to, “electrical, digital, analogue, magnetic, optical, biochemical, electrochemical, electromechanical, electromagnetic, radio electric, and wireless technology”. So any subversive content found on cell phones, computers, or toasters will soon be illegal. Your head should be spinning by now.

Pakistan is in a dire situation. Religious extremism, violence and a faltering economy have made the state of affairs here decidedly grim. Joe Biden and John Kerry see American dollars as the only way of helping Pakistan stave off extremism; but Yankee aid donations and senatorial money will not help us now. It is estimated that President Zardari and his late wife, Benazir Bhutto, stole between $2bn and $3bn from the country’s treasury during their two previous stints in power. Now Zardari has claimed his personal wealth to be somewhere in the ballpark of $1.8bn. Nawaz Sharif, leading coalition partner and head of the Pakistan Muslim League, declared his fortune to be not as grand, at only $1.4bn. You do the maths.

Musharaf in INDIA! Geo Musharaf Geo

March 9, 2009

 

PAKISTAN-POLITICS/

I would like to thank Saroor Zaidi for the for his brave work and support and sharing the following with his group members.

Geo Musharaf Geo,

An amzing Confident Musharraf has stood tall and proud, and represented Pakistan to the fullest capacity with dignity and power. Mr. Musharraf was harrassed by the Indian Muslims, which we know have a personal grudge with Pakistan, I will not add that in, as it was a cowardless reply from the Indian Muslims. They are far better treated as they are after reviewing there answer and statement.

Enjoy

Arun Poorie: You are here as a messenger of peace. What did you do about it in the nine years when you were in power?

Musharraf: Let’s stop the blame game. We need to look at the reality, forget the past and look ahead. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I can tell you I tried my best for peace between India and Pakistan. I was never negative when the opportunity for peace came to me.

Arun Poorie: What plans do you have about the future?

Musharraf: To me, the core issue is building confidence by greater people-to-people affinity. Once the confidence is there, we should move towards resolving the core issues, and stop meddling with the internal affairs of each other’s country.

 Arun Poorie: What do you have to say about what happened on 26/11 in Mumbai?

Musharraf: Let’s stop the war hysteria. Just a day into the investigations, the Pakistani army and the ISI was blamed for it. I am for a considered and matured response to these issues. As far as the investigations are concerned, the Pakistani government should fully cooperate and the guilty should be punished.

 Arun Poorie: Are there any terrorist camps in Pakistan?

Musharraf: See we have done damage to each other. I am aware of what the Indian embassy is doing in Jalalabad and Kandahar. A terrorist from Kabul has been received by Indian intelligence agencies in India and looked after. I have documents to show this. Let us stop the blame game. India is a big country. You try to do damage to us, we will do damage to you. We should address the trust deficit between the two countries. The ISI does the same thing as the RAW does. There is no distinction.

Ravi Shankar Prasad: In the face of the present situation, do you see Taliban taking over Pakistan?

Musharraf: Areas in the North West Frontier [Province] where the problem is, account for less then one percent of the population. There is no danger of Taliban taking over Pakistan politically.

Arun Poorie: What specific confidence-building measures do you have for the future?

 Musharraf: We need to look at strategic issues. We will have to address the water issue which would develop into a new conflict between the nations. We have to stick to the Indus Valley treaty.

Soli Sorabjee: Will you hand over Dawood Ibrahim to us as a confidence building measure?

Musharraf: This is a small issue. I do not know if he is there. I too have a long list of people that India needs to give us. The role of Indian embassy in Afghanistan in Jalalabad and Kandahar is not good either. Individuals are a small issue. We need to look at strategic issues. I do not think handing over Dawood will change anything. I know it will not help in easing tensions between the two nations, if that happens then you will have to hand over Dawood back to Pakistan (laughs).

Rahul Kanwal: A conversation of Gen Kayani, the army chief who succeeded you, has been intercepted where he said Taliban is a ‘strategic asset’?

Musharraf: This is a lie. He cannot say that. I challenge them to show me the proof. It is a lie.

Amar Singh: When our (then) PM Vajpayee travelled to Lahore by bus to Lahore for friendship, Kargil happened. Now you say you are for peace?

Musharraf: I would not like to comment on this issue. I have dealt with this matter in my book.

Shekhar Gupta: Compare your years in power with that of Ziaul Haq.

Musharraf: The comparison cannot be done as the situation and ground realities were very different in both times. You must understand that Pakistan is not the perpetuator of terror but a victim of terror in the last 30 years.

Question: How is it to live in Pakistan and not be in charge?

Musharraf: It’s good. I am relaxed. The most difficult job was to take decisions in highly complex situations. Now I read about them in the papers.

General VP Malik: What are the chances of the army taking over Pakistan again? How can India help Pakistan in its problems?

Musharraf: It is the internal matter of Pakistan. The political leadership can deal with the situation. I would not like to comment on that. India can help Pakistan by not maligning Pakistani army and the ISI in the world.

 To my readers, I know I have disappeared from blogging scene. I have some personal engagements due to which I am un able to bog but very soon a series of new writings are coming up…..

Thank you

Kasab’s life in danger, Dawood approached to kill him

February 10, 2009
The following news item has been taken from www.timesofindia.com. The news item claims that Dawood Ibrahim has been contacted to get Kasab killed in India.  I wonder if Indian authorities/media can steap any low than this.  Its just stupid and outrageous allegations which they have placed. I guess they have ran out of everything now and can only now come up with fake event of killing of Kasab and then blaming it on Pakistan….
Grow up India! Grow up!
Kasab’s life in danger, Dawood approached to kill him 
MUMBAI: Mumbai police have said that terror groups have approached Dawood Ibrahim to kill Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, the lone terrorist caught alive after the November 26 Mumbai attacks, said TV reports.
Sources from the intelligence agencies said that underworld don Chhota Shakeel, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim, has been given a contract to kill Kasab. Shakeel is believed to be hiding in Pakistan with help coming from Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence.

According to an intelligence sources, the plot came to light on January 29 when a Research and Analysis Wing branch of Gujarat’s Bhuj district intercepted a telephonic conversation from across the border. The matter has already been discussed at the January 10 National Security Council meeting. The information has been now handed over to the Mumbai police by the Centre.

An official.said Kasab’s death would mean there won’t be any evidence to pin Pakistan in the Mumbai attacks case.

Kasab evidence insufficient: Gujarat CM Modi

Gujarat’s Chief Minister Narendra Modi attends a climate change summit in New Delhi in this file photo, September 19, 2008. – Reuters
AHMEDABAD: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has criticized the Indian government for asking Pakistanto accept the statement of the lone surviving gunman in the Mumbai attacks as evidence, the Daily Times reported on Tuesday
‘There is no law in our country that would consider the statement of an arrested person before a top-level police official as evidence,’ he was quoted as saying.‘Despite the situation, we are trying to convince Pakistanto consider the statement evidence. This is very much contradictory,’ continued Modi.

India’s ruling Congress party dismissed Modi’s remarks as ‘irresponsible,’ the Press Trust of India reported Monday.

Congress spokesman Shakeel Ahmed told a press conference that Modi’s comments seemed to be from ‘an advocate of Pakistan.’ Ahmed went on to ask for a clarification.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have heightened following the November 26th/27th attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai which left over 170 people dead. India blames elements within Pakistan for the attack while Pakistan has asked for greater intelligence sharing and evidence to aid in the prosecution

The million dollar question is, what are they playing at? they need to work out their conspiracies against Pakistan better than the Mumbai one. Indian government will never learn would they ?
The world is laughing at them now!!!!

Finally….

January 5, 2009

 

yellow-evidence-tape_lrg

Finally Mr Parnab Mukharjee has annouced that the much awaited evidence of Mumbair carnage has been handed over to Pakistan, spokesman of FO Pakistan has also confirmed receiving the evidence. It has been informed to Indian authorities thart the evidence provided is being looked into by Pakistani authorities.  I must extend my personal thank you to  Mr Parnad Mukharjee for sharing this evidence….

Hang on hang on, did Mr Mukharjee didnt say a few weeks ago that all the evidence had already been handed over the Pakistan?. According to him it included list of people involved and much more. So if evidence was handed over earlier then which evidence is this?

Probably he was dreaming earlier and now he has finally actioned his dream. It must be reminded here that since the day India started blaming Pakistan for the Mumbai carnage, Pakistan has been asking for evidence and India had failed to provide it until now. (evidence provided on 05/01/2009)

“Gaza Strikes” , a disguise ?

January 2, 2009

question-markSince strike began on Gaza a thought has been going through my mind again and again. In fact, I have discussed it with few of my close friends and they are of the same view as I am. So I thought I would share it here on my blog and see what responses to I get….

I think Gaza strikes have started all of a sudden to create a distraction from the current Pakistan and India crisis. This can be for a few reasons:-

• An attempt to take away the attention from India (after the blunder of Indian Planned Mumbai carnage ).

• To distract Pakistan in order to effect its readiness towards any surgical strikes by India.
 
• May be, to give India time to come up with some fresh false allegation or may be one more Indian planned carnage on Indian soil.

• Finally, may be Israel is just trying to show its might on innocent civilians.

The possibilities are endless……

I don’t know how much I am right or wrong on this but its just a thought.  Pakistan should keep its guard stiffer than ever, although Indian government is saying that they are not looking for a war, can we trust them ?

Indian Bluff

January 2, 2009

An eye opener by my fellow blogger…..
http://pakistankakhudahafiz.wordpress.com/

f16_kk_paf

Will India launch punitive strike(s) against Pakistan? Highly unlikely. India would have already struck if it had a choice. It doesn’t have a choice for two major reasons:

1. Indians know, they can start a conflict, but where and how the war ends will not be in their control.

2. By tangling themselves in a war, they run a too realistic risk of delivering a mortal blow to their service-based economy, which may not even survive the brinksmanship Indians are engaging in.

Arguably, Indians suffer from the ‘white man’s complex.’ Urbanite Indians love to mimic the American way of life. They imitate the ‘goras’ in ways ranging from their attire to their manner of speech. So much so, they have named Bombay film industry after an American icon, namely the Hollywood. Somewhere during the last decade or so, Indians became so engrossed with the ‘gora complex’ that they began imagining India to be an economical powerhouse and military superpower equating the Americans. Perhaps, it’s this complex which sullied the better judgment of Indian urbanites and their media in demanding punitive strikes against Pakistan.

Nevertheless, after the initial hysteria will ware down, at least some sane Indians will ask, if India could afford such an arrogant behavior? That when the reality will hit them rudely, like ton of bricks, that neither India is America nor Pakistan is Afghanistan.

Despite the ferocious appearance of the Indian military, largely on paper; the fact remains, over 80% of its obsolete hardware is a carryover from the Soviet-era. Indian handicap of obsolete hardware was highlighted during the 2002 India-Pakistan standoff. It was a humiliating experience for the Indians. Operation Parakram cost India about $2 billion in cash and 798 in human cost, and that too without a single shot fired from the Pakistani side.

It was also a disastrous Indian deployment, because even after one year of hostile posturing, they could not cross the border, fearing an all out war ending in a nuclear exchange. That is when India truly lost its supposed conventional superiority over Pakistan. The humiliating pull back effectively closed the doors on India for any future conventional war endeavors; because Pakistani nuclear arsenal was here to stay. However, during the same time Pakistanis were modernizing its arsenal through the rapid induction of modern weaponry like F-17 fighters and precision weapons like the Hatf-8 cruise missiles.

Since then, India has dabbled with nonstarters, like ‘cold start’ doctrine. The idea was to catch Pakistan off-guard by sending a comparatively smaller but highly mobile force across the border at a moment’s notice. It was a nonstarter because of Pakistani equalizer (its nukes); plus they realized they would still have to deploy a considerable amount of logistics and men at the front positions, where they would have remained juicy sitting-ducks for the preemptive PAF air strikes.

The other reason India cannot afford a war with Pakistan is, its economy is too young and still too small to survive through a round of war. Regardless, the havoc it will run on the already distressed Pakistani economy, the war will for sure spell an end to the largely service-based economy, which depends on the foreign investments; and the foreign investments inherently depend on peace driven stability.

A brief look will abundantly expose the facade of the Indian economy; which will collapse at the first signs of uncertainty or instability. In 2008, its external debts increased to around $221 billion. In 2007, Indian exports stood around $145 billion, while imports were around $217 billion; a deficit of $72 billion in a single year.

Its factory output account for 27.6% of the GDP and employs 17% of the total workforce. Rest of the workforce is largely dedicated to the agriculture sector. According to a 2008 World Bank report, 75.6% Indians live on less than $2 per day. It suffers from higher rates of malnutrition than Sub-Saharan Africa. Over 70% its population is either illiterate or educated below the primary level. Indian tourist industry is 1/6 of Las Vegas. Recently, Standard & Poor’s announced, India risk a downgrade from BBB-minus rating to the lowest investment-grade rating. Clearly, Indians are hardly in a financial shape to even contemplate on waging a war.

Indian service industry accounts for over 55% of its GDP. Bangalore is called the Silicon Valley of India. A large number of Information Technology companies are located in the city. It is the largest contributor of India’s $33 billion IT exports (2007). IT giants like Infosys and Wipro are headquartered in Bangalore. Other undertakings headquartered in Bangalore are Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to name the few.

Bangalore is also called the world’s call-centre capital. Foreign IT giants like the IBM, Microsoft, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Apple and Cisco have also heavily invested in the city by opening call centers there. These call centers bring in major amounts of service-generated foreign revenues. Their 24/7 operations provide the customer support throughout the globe. An interruption of operations for even for a single day could mean loss of millions of dollars for the foreign investors.

As ugly as it may sound, but that’s what wars are, brutal and ugly. Imagine: far short of nuclear strike, only a couple of bombs or Shaheen-II (with an accuracy of 200m) armed with conventional warheads are dropped on the outskirts of Bangalore. Will even a single foreign company think twice before closing their operations for good? Would they stay around to see if they will get lucky during second round too?

Feel-good slogans like ‘shining India’ don’t help the arrogance clouding the good judgment war-mongering Indians. They can try to start a war on their terms, but it will definitely not end at their terms. Unless India has somehow overcome their fear of far-superior Pakistani nuclear arsenal, or they have found a way to move whole India under kilometer deep nuke-proof shelters, it will not dare to start a war.

India bites the dust….

December 30, 2008

First of all I would like to extend my thank you to China. In the fiasco of past weeks China once again has stood by Pakistan’s side making it clear that the best way of resolution of disputes is dialogue.
We as Pakistani must always be thankful to China and its support to us.


After weeks and weeks of blame game by India it has achieved nothing but shame on itself. The Indian planned incidents of Mumbai were planned to undermine and pressurize Pakistan (A plan which fell flat). We all saw the Mumbai carnage and the statements of eye witnesses. All pointed fingers back at India but it was incompetent politicians like Parnab Mukharjee who got carried away and now they have bowed their heads in shame. Mr Mukharjee needs to realize that this time things are not the same as 1971. They wont succeed the in making Bangladesh away by supporting people like Mujeeb-ur-Rehman and organizations like Mukti Bahini.

Pakistan on the other hand has sent a clear message to Indian counterparts saying “You can’t dictate us”. India so far has exhausted all efforts to pressurize Pakistan but it is yet to provide Pakistan with a solid proof. Yes, they have provided us with a letter from Kasab, Qasav or whatever that boys name, would anyone sensible enough will take that letter as a credible form of evidence? If one is sensible enough, then the answer will be “NO”.

Looking at how the events have unfolded so far India must have realized that Pakistan will always be united against India. No matter what our internal conflicts are we will always stand united if anyone tries to impose a war on us. I myself had decided weeks back that if war erupts then I will support my mother land financially and physically. I even had plans to fly back to Karachi in case of war and similar were the thoughts of my friends.

So what should we expect now from India? Is there going to be any evidence sharing from India? Do we actually think that India has tangible evidence showing Pakistan involved in Mumbai carnage? I don’t think so.

From past experiences it has been clear that India and Indian’s are not competent enough to think sensibly. In my opinion Mumbai incidents will turn out to be like Samjhota express incidents proving that India has got internal problems. They have 100’s of separate movements within their country and they are trying to suppress them. There is no doubt the Indian government, opposition and RAW was involved in Mumbai brutalities.

The so called world’s greatest democracy is a mockery of all democracies. Over the years the brutal killings of Sikh’s, Muslims, Christians have proved it that Hindu’s are terrorist and not to forget their continued invasion of Kashmir (this is a topic within itself.) After the Mumbai carnage India ran to U.N. to seek a ban on some organization and on the other hand India doesn’t even follow the U.N resolution on Kashmir. What a bloody joke!!!

India has always pointed fingers at Pakistan for terrorism but it has always failed to address issues like Gujrat massacre of Muslims, target killings of Christians, mass murder of Sikh’s and much more. The fact is that anyone who is not a Hindu is in danger in India.

An Indian journalist made the following video’s which clearly show Hindu’s confessing of mass murder of Muslims.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D11oeBBfQxk&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpjS1WWAmtE&NR=1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l3neoDICXE&feature=related

Watching this video reminds me of the way Mumbai carnage was conducted and I tend to find similarities on how innocent people were murdered in Gujrat and Mumbai and I reach the conclusion that these terrorist were Indian’s trained the same way as the terrorist of Gujrat were trained and they were on the same mission of killing innocent civilians. Does this mean that they were RAW trained terrorist serving their duties? And Indian government masterminded this plan?

In my opinion India is a threat to the rest of the world. They are of the thought that they will be worlds next super powers whereas, in reality they are a stock of idiots with having much more than what they can really handle. The minorities of India are deprived from everyday needs. So much so that most of them are even discriminated in every aspect of life. They have separation movements running. Their poverty issues are in despair. Indian’s themselves are frustrated with their own government. These are merely some facts which usually remain hidden behind the gimmicky and glamorous world of Bollywood.

The so called “BOOM” in Indian economy is going down the hill, it is greatly dependent on western BPO’s etc, with the west struggling to conduct operations with due to credit crunch it is only a matter of time that the plug will be pulled.

Yet, they believe that they will be the worlds next super power.

It will be in best interest of India to first of all resolve Kashmir dispute because then India will be able to fully concentrate on India itself. They have occupied Kashmir illegally for long enough now and it is time to let go and face the bitter truth that Kashmiri’s want freedom from them. By resolving Kashmir India and Pakistan will be able to work together better and may be the arch rivals will become partners in each others success. The world which awaits us tomorrow will only sustain if we carry peace and harmony. Conflicts will only cause destruction on both sides of the border. We must remember, now wars are only of buttons of WMD.

May peace prevails, there is no other option

No ample proof on Mumbai attacks: Interpol!!!!

December 23, 2008

Neighbours & Rivals

Neighbours & Rivals

What strategy will India adopt now? Because clearly they havent given any proof to anyone at all. Does this mean that Parnad Mukherjee and has been wasting his energy to pressurize Pakistan and impose a war on it or its just the same agenda as U.S had Iraq concerning WMD….?

www.aryoneworld.net 23.12.2008
ISLAMABAD: Interpol chief Ronald Noble has said that India has not provided ample evidence for arrest of any accused of the Mumbai attacks. While Interior Advisor Rehman Malik has said Ajmal Kasav has sent a letter to Pakistan, through the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi.

Addressing a press conference alongside with Advisor for Interior Rehman Malik here, the Interpol chief said that Pakistan is one of the victims of terrorism. He termed terrorism a major problem faced by the world.

He said around 1500 people have lost their lives in terror incidents in Pakistan and appealed the world to extend help to Pakistan to curb the menace.

Advisor to Prime Minister for Interior Rehman Malik said that a proper procedure exists for extradition of people wanted to any country. He said he has discussed with the Interpol official the issue of illegal emigrants.

He said Pakistan has offered unconditional cooperation to India for investigation of Mumbai attacks.

Pakistan has imposed ban on Jamat-ud-Dawa in pursuance of the United Nations resolution and detained activists of the group, Malik said.

Malik said that Ajmal Kasav in his letter has requested for legal assistance. He said the name of Ajmal Kasav has not been found in NADRA record.

He said Pakistan is cooperating with the world community over the issue, the world should also extend its cooperation to the country.

The press conference held in Pakistan by the Interpol chief proofs that either India doesnt have any evidence at all or it has very limited evidence and that is the reason they are using pressure tactics just to destabilize Pakistan. It annoying to see out incompetent Defence Minister making sensless statements and our elected PM and non elected President being as daft as they can…

Benazir Bhutto shaheed?

December 23, 2008
Benazir & Zardari

Benazir & Zardari

Shaheed is a title given to someone who is a martyr, a true patriot, who lives for his/her homeland and dies for his/her home land. Shaheed is a very respectable word which carries great dignity and yet used to blow the bubble of greatness for a corrupt politician like Benazir Bhutto.

It makes me laugh as well makes me angry when I look at the media campaing being conducted by channels like “Ary Oneworld” to portray a positive imgae of Benazir Bhutto. A few years ago this channels (like others) was reporting that Bhutto was one of the most corrupt prime minister of Pakistan. This channel also relayed the figures of monetary scams , how different funds were looted, how china electricity power hub project was shambelled etc etc etc. Then there was a timeline of events which saw the following:-

1. Irresponsible behaviour of media.
2. Dramatising events involving strikes on national securtiy.
3. Decleration of emergency in November by Former President Pervaiz Musharaf.
4. Return of Benazir Bhutto.
5. Assasination of Benazir Bhutto.    

The top three events in time line of media left a sour taste for media againt Former President Pervaiz Musharaf and this is where the sides started to change and suddenly Former President Pervaiz Musharaf became the bad guy and politicians like Benazir Bhutto & Nawaz Sharif were hailed as national hero’s. The media which was reformed, given freedom and given respect by Pervaiz Musharaf finally started to show its true colours againts Pervaiz Musharaf. 

Its sad to see that these days that the channle “Aryone World” is airing unlimited clips of Benazir Bhutto with the caption “Tasveerein jo amar hogein” .  It now seems such an easy task to chair corruption in one of the highest elected office,  get several innocent people kill (including your own brother), then die at the hands of your old allies and you get an airport named after you, get your picture on a 10 R.s coin and have larger potraits as compared to Jinnah’s in televised interviews to international media. Yes, all this is was awarded to corrupt Benazir after her assasination and God knows what else is coming. May be they are thinking to name Pakistan as “Benaziristan”. 

_558545_rockwood300

'Surrey Palace'

Its amazing to see the type of denial Pakistani soceity is being lured into. Benazir was surely great but she wasnt great in leadership, She was great in corruption, killings, lies and deceptive behaviour. She was a great planner in murder of her own brother (Murtaza Bhutto), she showed larger greatness when she shook hands with people who were involved in hanging her very own father, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.  For all these reason Pakistani people have accepted Benazir Bhutto as the daughter of east and titled her “Shaheed”. All I say is if such greatness, which all the time talked about, was really there then alongwith returning from a self imposed exile last year she would have brought all that money back into the country, which she and her beloved husband looted in her short but damaging tenure. But no, instead of this  the Bhutto family now enjoys the fruits of corruption and they will keep on enjoying it till the end of Pakistan.
The thing which really scares me is in the past Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto costed the division of Pakistan (We are still paying the price of it) and in the present Persident Asif Zardari might cost Pakistan something more grave. (And we will pay the price of if for the rest of our lives).  

East & West Pakistan.

East & West Pakistan.

These days the coverage being given to Benazir’s death anniversary is something really new to me and I am sure its new to the whole nation of Pakistan as well. I have never ever seen a slide show trying to improve the image of the worst prime minister in the history of  Pakistan. If the media really wants to bring greatness to life then why doesnt the media concentrate on leaders like Mr Jinnah, Miss Jinnah, Liaquat Ali Khan and others who truly achieved greatness by dedicating their lives for the sake of Pakistan….. 

The question arises is.
  “Who will make a difference? There wont be any more Moses or Mohammad…..”
