Recently events in Pakistan have unveiled the direction of where the country is heading to, the atmosphere of uncertainty is now at the Government’s end as different factions have decided to send the government to pavilion. Military started the Operation Zarb E Azb to eliminate terrorism aiming that there will be no Militant Group left behind in the Country. As Army began targeting  the Militant Hideouts in North Waziristan, some Political Parties are welcoming and some are mourning over it, showing displeasure over the on-going Military Operation as usual.

Imran Khan’s Political Career:

Imran Khan’s Politics has no future ever since the Military Operation in NW has started, Imran Khan’s Cousins (TTP) are in trouble as his mass confusion campaign against Army & in support of Taliban will end with the end of this Operation, also his pack of lies he spread will be exposed soon.

Imran-Khan-Bad-Press-Week

Now he has started a new drama of threatening the Govt that if his demands will not be met so he will come out on streets against the rigging in Elections 2013, if he is that serious about protesting against the rigging then at first place he along with his MNA’s should resign from All Provincial & National Assemblies and then talk.(Which he dont want to, afterall who loves to give up on VIP Culture)

He thinks he is smart? No he is not. Nation will not let him fool them this time. As they have decided not to trust the man, who does not have any moral value, has no practical approach, talks rubbish, commits and then backs out.

14 August March in Islamabad:

imran-khan1

Now let’s come to the point that what Imran Khan is planning for 14th August, 2014?

He knows that every Pakistani comes out on streets on 14th August to celebrate Independence Day, now Khan Sb wants to take advantage of this situation and is planing to own all those people out there as his PTI Worker protesting against the rigging just to give an impression that he has street power, in reality no body gives jack to what he thinks or say.

 

A large chunk of his supporters are still unsure about Khan’s call for Long March on 14th August, 2014 as they believe, their leader is confused about his motives, so are they!

How Khan wants to benefit from Grand Alliance?

He knows that momentum paced up against the PMLN Govt by Sunni Ittehad Council, Faisal Raza Abidi, MWM, TUQ, PMLQ and Sheikh Rasheed over the past years is going to be decisive this time, so finally Mr. Khan has also decided to come out on streets following the trend and seeing the prospects of the sitting Government to go home.

Khan’s Notion correlates to what we normally say in urdu ;

Ungli Katwa Kar Shaheedoun Mein Naam Likhwana

What it has for General (R) Pervez Musharraf?

President Musharraf is  probably the only man who  stands tall today, as whatever  he did during his tenure  turned out to be right and time  has proved that all the pack of  lies that Imran Khan spread  against him had no truth in  them. General Musharraf who  returned to Pakistan last year  in March and faced the biased  Judiciary, Politically  Motivated Cases against him is  all set to get free as time has  proven all the allegations  leveled against him were  fabricated by his rivals, to  malign his image publicly. He  will come out clean from all  these Courts as he all his  actions were taken in favor of  the state.

I will be out on 13th  August to  save Pakistan  but not  to help  anyone  accomplish his  Political Motive InshahAllah!

 

Message for the readers is, support the State, it’s Interests and not any Individual and his Interests. Get united for the future of Pakistan and not for the future of any Political Party. Future of Pakistan is bright only if people realize that state need their loyalty  not individuals. Join hands with each other and hope that “It’s the Final Count Down” for this corrupt regime.

Pakistaniyat Zindabad, Pakistan Paindabad!

Despite all of the contrary belief, Egypt is certainly under deep trouble. We have seen a very aggressive campaign of the Army against the civilian leadership in the past few days, and it begs the question, why after so much trouble go back to square one?

It’s much like the monopoly game where if a player lands the wrong turn, he/she ends up in jail or goes back to square one. This subtle game of destruction of Muslim nation states has gone much farther than one would anticipate and not only has it engulfed the entire region, it has also pulled Pakistan into the mix as well.

We now turn our attention towards the sequence of events following the revolution in Egypt which led to the downfall of Hosni Mubarak in 2010/2011 period. We saw a sea of people converging on the Tahrir Square to protest and eradicate the 30 year long rule of Hosni Mubarak who was determined not to let go. After a fierce struggle, seemingly, the people of Egypt triumph and Hosni is dethroned.

After which another sequence of events led to a fierce struggle of the people and the Egyptian army to ‘elect’ their leader this time around. Elections were held several months later, and a new face emerged victorious: Dr. Mohammad Morsi, a seemingly fine gentleman wearing square shaped glasses and a big chin. However, under the circumstances of borrowed loans from IMF and other money lending entities, Egypt yet again faces huge amount of turmoil, and a failed government now seems extremely incompetent to handle the everyday challenges in the lives of ordinary Egyptians.

After another ‘fierce’ struggle, the president is dethroned yet again! But this time it is not the people who did it, it was the Egyptian army. And so, not only is the democratic process most indefinitely held out, the Egyptian army now has gone down the road of the Yugoslavian army: fighting its own people, and if anyone can clearly remember what happened to a country like Yugoslavia, surely they can put the pieces together and come to a logical conclusion of what will happen in an event this tussle escalates.

In this event, not only will Egypt be prone to outside invasion, it will be severely weakened as well; inviting an all-out buffet for the Israeli leadership to take charge of the country.

Now let’s look at it in another perspective: Pakistan. The Pakistani military still is holding its ground very well, and under all circumstances and predictions has emerged victorious gloriously by pushing back the insurgency in its western territory and dispelling the “bad image” campaign which sought to malign the Pakistan Army and raise questions on the authenticity of its fight of whether or not they are “fighting their own people?”

Through understanding and delegation, assessing their situation and analyzing the threats correctly, Pakistan Army launched a massive counter-attack which not only baffled the Armies of the world, but also utterly disfigured the resolve of the TTP.

From the lessons of Egypt, Pakistan army has several options available, though the situation in both the countries appears to be very, very similar to each other: Pakistan has an incompetent failed government which has failed to punish the terrorists, but has instead engaged in a tussle against the Army, and the people of Pakistan are despairing yet again. The following scenarios can be played out:

1)      Pakistan army goes the path of the Yugoslavian army, takes over the government, ousts all power from the civilian set up and completely disintegrates the state by engaging in civil war: a very unlikely scenario but nonetheless something those who would like to see Pakistan balkanized would most certainly entertain themselves to.

2)      Pakistan army chooses not to engage themselves in this matter and let the incompetent government handle things; which it most certainly will not (under any situation or circumstances).

3)      Pakistan army chooses to act through deliberation and takes over the government, keeps the power within the civil set up and brings in caretaker government which would be allowed to stabilize the country for no more than 2 years until a reliable government can be formed.

The third is the most likely scenario to be played out under the current circumstances but even then, one cannot fully give an accurate detailed account of which scenario is the most likely to be played out.

However, Pakistan army would be wise enough to learn from Egypt and refrain from any unnecessary bloodshed and discourse of violence and they can do this by engaging with the civilian leadership: Non-Politicized Youth of Pakistan.

A lot of people after reading this may assume as If I am projecting something against my own society and this may cause damage to our image Globally but I think this is a need of time that we need to correct ourselves as it’s a “ Do or Die “ situation for us. The root cause of all our major problems in Pakistan are self made sociocultural values and all these aspects of human life are intermingled ,deficient of all these we are not worthy to be called a nation, but just a group of people occupying some land.

Today after looking at most of the problems in our society I feel that we are not heading towards the moral values, vision of the Perfect Society that we had 1400 years ago. We are in a state of confusion, are we suffering from intellectual repression? As a nation we are morally dead and this is the bitter truth, the worse that can happen to any nation. We have always forgotten the lessons taught to us by the history, we posses capability to rediscover our Patriotism to rebuild a Nation.

We have become a chronic complainer and an aggressive critic of the rampant corruption in the bureaucracy, unclear foreign policy, bribery and government inefficiency. But how about us? Are we morally upright? We also have the same weakness and the same petty quarrels that existed between our leaders. After the gruesome and barbaric Sialkot incident, I deduced that we have no the right to criticize the evil in the government, because we just watched, while these people freely committing a crime in a maniacal and monstrous way, there are hundreds of people who are loosing their lives in Pakistan but we seem less bothered about them.  A Muslim by Religion is killing his fellow Muslim Brother/Sister and we are doing nothing except acting as a silent Spectator of all these events that happening right in front of our eyes. There is no doubt that we love to criticize Western Nations for their grieve violation of Human rights and yet we could not even make a stand nor we could show sympathy at least to those who were victimized. We all have suffered a moral decay. We have remained stagnant, we cease to signify as the masses that could break the past and challenge the establishment, rebuilding the society, acting rather than talking.

We want good politicians but we do not have a right political culture the political structure of dictatorship have not been completely transformed and even if we are aware of all these facts, we always voted for the wrong choice,  without knowing the true essence and power of our right of suffrage, but voted for them because we felt that that was a right choice to be made. We criticize our Armed Forces but still we want them to save us from our enemies, we want them to come in power and save us from the corrupt politicians but as soon as they leave, we branded them traitors or dictators. We want honest people to come forward but we always fail because we do not have a strong and credible political system that can bring good people to the front, or we do not know how to identify their existence. We want someone to take the lead but again we have a ridiculous credibility issues, and highest level of mistrust, or we try to find some controversy related to them we always have a “crab mentality”. So, we can pull them down and preventing them to perform their duty of serving the people.

We need change but first it should come from within us. We have to be faithful to our historical aspirations and experience, rooted as it were, in our realistic demands; we are in many ways and under changing circumstances, still waging a struggle for change. But Always remember that;

To bring the change you have to change FIRST!

We want our rights, but we fail to identify what those rights are. We often make complaints about the issues but we never try to figure out the actual reasons behind such issues. We want revolution in the country but we do not realize that

“ The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall ” – Che Guevara 

We cease to abide within the precept of Islam the way the Prophet (P.B.U.H) admonished us. All of these chaos and miseries will not end as long as we do not remain faithful. I believe that Allah has already given us the direction; it’s only up to us to articulate our faith and follow that direction. If you have no idea on how to overcome all this, then read the Quran thoroughly to understand the purpose for the creation of Pakistan , only then you will come to know why we came into being and why  despite all the hardship and torments we are still safe, The lyrics of our National Anthem also reverberates that purpose.

We emerged as a nation under the great leadership of Quaid-e-Azam; we were conceived from the mind of Allama Muhammad Iqbal a great philosopher of the east. Today, we have our own leaders to whom we like and to whom we are ready to defend but not those who helped us get liberated from the Dark Rule of Great Britain and Indians, we are always up for responding to any allegation on our Favorite Politician just because we like them and we defame others to whom we don’t like. I see a lot of people have forgotten about their greatness and that is why we let every Pakistani Politician play with the Name and Vision of The Great Quaid and Iqbal. Few years have passed PPP Co-Chairman and President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari called Quaid-e-Azam a Non-Graduate” what happened to our national aspiration then? Where our National Integrity and Possessive Attitude go when such radicalizing statements comes out from the people who have no public standing? Why do we only protest and react when a Politician of our choice gets radicalized? Just because we like them? And we agree to what he says no matter he is right or wrong but we opt to defend him, why? Because from the core, we ourselves are equally corrupt, we may go out of the way to defend the Politician we like but not to those who laid the Foundations of this Land and made a Nation before putting any demands? At such instances where goes our Historical, Political and Cultural Awareness?

We should have demanded President Zardari to apologize for using inappropriate words for the founder of the Nation, but we didn’t neither did any of us came out on road. All this doesn’t end here as we do not dare to stop it when that should be and later keep regretting for not doing what we were supposed to do. We always forget that the Nations that forget their real heroes will cease to exist for long. We all should be vigilant in every circumstances that compel, confused aggravate or twist our heroes character or open them to dangerous and self-serving opportunists. There are necessary evils, some done deliberately but with regret, sometimes without. But there are also plain betrayals for selfish ends which are not only unforgettable but unforgivable. We have to take charge of our destiny to free ourselves from the clout of Imperialism and from all the vestiges of oppressions and to take pride in our historical heritage. One does not need to be wealthy and highly educated to identify with the change that we want to achieve. We are all in these together. Together we can act different possibilities, a consolidated power in re-establishing our identity of being Pakistani and to participate in rebuilding our beloved Nation. A Nation, moving forward, armed with Faith, posses Discipline and equipped with Unity! Pakistan Zindabad!

Closing Remarks:

Before you finish reading this, I would like to make one thing clear that this piece of writing is my personal opinion on different on-going matters; my intentions are not to demoralize anyone or deliberately target any segment of the society. The sole purpose of sharing this write up with you all is to share my view and to get some intellectual feedback from you all. The image used represents the “CHUNK” of Pakistani society that has become dead from inside that no one and nothing can wake them up from this deadly sleep of insensitivity. This is my little effort as an individual, as a media person, as a proud Pakistani to at least try and make a difference. I will continue writing more and more and will continue doing work that I believe can bring the real Change in us First and then in our Society. Long Live PAKISTAN !!!


QUETTA: Inspector General (IG) Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan Major General Obaidullah Khattak on Friday alleged that India was using Afghan territory to carry out terrorist attacks in Balochistan.
Talking to journalists at the FC headquarters in Quetta, Khattak said there was evidence that Afghanistan was being used against Pakistan.
He urged NATO and ISAF forces to control militants using Afghan soil for launching terror attacks in Balochistan.

Meanwhile, Khattak credited FC for maintaining peace in Quetta and said unity was the only way to cope with internal and external threats adding that suggestions were given to the Balochistan government to deweaponise Quetta.

Earlier Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani on Thursday had issued a warning to Afghanistan to stop cross-border activities in Pakistan.

Addressing a Pak-Saudi joint military exercise programme in Mangla, Kayani asserted that no such activities would be tolerated and that Pakistan “possesses the capability to respond to any situation”.

Pakistan’s Former President Pervez Musharraf had also charged that arch-rival India seeks to “create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan” as part of a bid to dominate South Asia politically and economically.
Musharraf said Afghanistan sends its Intelligence Staff, Diplomats and Soldiers to India where they are “indoctrinated against Pakistan,” something he said India must stop and the United States (US) should be concerned about.

“In Afghanistan, there is some kind of a proxy conflict going on between Pakistan and India,” Musharraf told a leadership forum sponsored by the Atlantic media corporation.

“India is trying to create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan.”

Khattak says there are evidences that Afghanistan soil is being used against Pakistan by India


30th Sep ,2010 –     First step  towards foreign Aggression … This morning after NATO forces voilated the air space of Pakistani Soil , they had to bear the consequences ,  as a protest NATO Supplies  to Afghanistan have been blocked. This is for the first time Pakistan has taken a strong action against Any Foreign Forces that had been voilating Pakistan’s Airspace. I wish to see the same happening to all those Drone Attacks that are done every day as a result of 1000’s of  people have been killed in suspicion that these civilians belongs to the name of Ameican C.I.A sponsored Al-Qaeda . I hope Pakistani Ruling Elite will take further actions that will make them realize that we a are a sovereign country and we know how to protect our Land & its people. Pakistan Zindabad.
