Generals

By now every sensible Pakistani has sensed that Democratic Forces in Pakistan have failed to address their basic living rights during their respective tenures also in last 7 years no such project was initiated that could benefit the poor and or the public in general. Today, Pakistan is again standing at a point where it was in 1999 where people are looking at Pakistan Army to come into power and rescue the Country of 180 Million that is sinking like a boat because of Corruption, Nepotism, Bad Governance, Political Instability and rapidly increasing Internal and External Threats to Pakistan’s existence.

Major Cities of Pakistan particularly Peshawar, Quetta and Karachi are at the disposal of terrorists who have firm networks established with the help of Non-state Actors who have increased their influence inside Pakistan more than before in these last 7 years.

Terrorism

Militant Organizations like TTP, BLA, Sect base Militant Organizations have strengthened themselves by recruiting brainwashed young lads, using them against Pakistan Armed Forces. Formation of IS on the borders of Iraq and Syria, and Al-Qaeda South Asia based on Militants of different ethnicity are surely the next biggest threat for World Peace particularly Pakistan.

Groups like TTP, BLA and BLF that are supported by RAW, MOSSAD, CIA and NDS with their base camps mostly funded by RAW via it’s consulates being setup inside Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

PTI was the final hope for Pakistanis, that turned out to be a big disappointed because of his no clear policies on Terrorism, Economy, Health, Education and Governance and rather focusing on KPK kept itself on the roads protesting against the systematically Rigged Elections held after PPP Government completed its 5 years tenure and setup a care taker government.

Imran Khan, who aimed to uproot the status quo from Pakistan’s Political Arena seemed helpless at the hands of Electable in PTI, who once were the part of the same status quo parties against whom Mr. Khan was fighting.

D I Khan Jail Break, APS School Attack are the main two incidents that took place under his party’s ruled province (KPK) that raised eye brows of his voters.

Under such circumstances considering Country’s Law & Order Situation, Political Instability and Increasing Influence of Takfiri Militant Organizations like IS in its surroundings, another possible war between India and Pakistan, we are left with no other option but to have Military take over the Control of Country and assign prominent Technocrats a role within certain period of time, also to setup an Independent Election Commission, do country-wide crack down on banned outfits and sectarian parties hence clearing the country from all possible threats within Pakistan and hold elections whenever they feel is the right time.

If we reflect this back to Military Coup in 1999 and all the measures taken by General (r) Pervez Musharraf, we may realize that all those decisions and policies introduced by General Musharraf and his technocrats were heading in right direction.

Strengthening Pakistan Economically was the main agenda set by Musharraf and his team, besides that he initiated projects like Bhasha Dam, Pakistan’s Nuclear Program, Defense Deals with France, Russia, China and America, Pakistan’s Foreign Policy was stronger than ever with its citizens being valued abroad, becoming a part of Economic Corridor having Iran, China, Russia and Pakistan as its main beneficiaries, launching 16706-mush-1364625706-852-640x480Gwadar Port, increasing Pakistan’s Export to European, African and Australian Markets, initiating Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline Project that could have benefited Pakistan in long run and address the on-going Power and Economical Problems of Pakistan.

Besides all above mentioned achievements of Musharraf Regime, life of an ordinary Pakistan was much easier than it is now, also law and order situation was stable, non-state actors and their networks were being shut in the country. People seemed lost comparing Musharraf’s Rule with the promises of Democrats that never got fulfilled.

Eventually, General Raheel Sharif is left with only two options, one to setup a Technocratic Government led by General (r) Pervez Musharraf, assigning him with the best team of technocrats with proved track record and second option is to remove this government and take over the state affairs and hand over them to Pakistan Military.

To sum up, Pakistani Nation is in standing in the same point like it was in 1999 with no other option than Electing General Musharraf with the Team of Young, Energetic and Dynamic Technocrats or to ask Army to take over and impose Martial Law which surely is not a permanent solution to the problems but would at least save the existence of Pakistan that is far more important than the system (democracy) that has always failed to resolve people’s issues.

Now Pakistanis have to decide, either they want to have the system that never solves their issues or they want to have dedicated team that is not a part of the system but can solve their many issues. Whoever be in power will surely have great challenges ahead of him and will need minimum 5 years in bringing things back to normal and surely 10 years to bring back Pakistan on the path where there will be Peace, Prosperity, Better Governance and Credibility in International Community.

 Everyday I get up, I  see alot of text  messages in  my  mobile inbox, which I hardly get time to read, I  hardly get time to  inform my family  about where I am and  when I will be going  back to home and I  wonder how much  time does these people  have, so that they  spend so much time in  writing these  long text  messages that have no  impact on people who  unfortunately read  them. Most of  them  are against the    government and their    policies, the system,    establishment,  Americans, Zionist Agenda and  what not  but these  critics can  only send  or forward  the text  messages that they  receive from some  source, without any  confirmation they  forward these  messages to thousands  of their friends.

Last morning I saw this message,

Mr.10% has assets over 2.5 trillion US$ in his Swiss Accounts, Wake Up Pakistan and fight against these corrupt Politicians, let’s protest against them and forward this message to as many people as you may know, everyone should know the reality.

Worse thing about these messages is the fact that they all are full of emotions and no practical solution, these sort of messages force increase frustration but again you need someone to guide you and you do not find one, hence disappointment.

Same year I started a campaign against when American Spy Raymond Davis who was freed and let go by Pakistani Authorities, I called upon each and every single person I knew to come and join all those who were out there protesting against that unfair trial and only 15 people showed up. The thing that I do not understand that if only putting the blame on authorities is just something that we know then why don’t we try start doing something on our own or help those who are already doing something.

I agree one way or the other the blame goes on the Authorities, but have we ever tried to evaluate ourselves and do we realize what is our responsibility being a citizen of Pakistan. Why don’t we try to do something on our own. I am among those people who forward these messages and update statuses on my Facebook and also keep a track on each one of these people and also observe the general behaviour of these Che Guerreros but when it comes on doing something practical, I do not sit back home, while these Che Guerreros are sitting in their rooms or partying outside. I do whatever I can do but how long this ” One Man Show ” will go on? Is it only responsibility of people like Imran Khan to come forward and activate these sleepy sheeps or are they ever going to get up from their peaceful sleep?

Are we ever going to become torch bearers of Pakistan’s Future or we will expect the same Politicians to hold the power corridors and play musical chair that I see happening in my opinion over three decades now.

Now is the time that people like Imran Khan expect same people to come forward and start awaking these people and politically correct them if they are not well awared of or someone will have to spoon feed them again like a 1 year old baby. The best they can do is to aware the people around them and if they think they are filled up with filth in their minds so they better keep themselves inside the cage of hopelessness(their head), and at least do not discourage those who are at least doing something.

They blame Army, they blame Intelligence, they think Imran Khan is one man show, they think Pervez Musharraf was a jack ass, they think Army has ruined the future of Pakistan, they post anti-state statuses on their face books, they post links that are written by some stupid journalists that have certain agenda in their hands to perform and make their opinion on such baseless crap, they have no understanding about the propaganda campaign that is going against Pakistan,it’s Army, Intelligence & Nuclear Program they are ignorant towards the misery that their ” Political Jokers ” have brought to this Country whose “D” they hold in their hands in the name of so-called ” Democracy in Pakistan “.

If Democracy is what they want in Pakistan then it should be implemented with all it’s constituents or else they better shall stop singing  rap song of ” We want Democracy in Pakistan ” and stop behaving like  ” Jack Asses “.

Sometimes I see a clear contradiction in their actions and words when it comes to propose some practical solution in taking out Pakistan from current State of Chaos.

When you start debating with them, their reaction is quite obvious, they will start abusing Military Rulers without knowing the fact that all the infrastructure of Pakistan was made by all these Military rulers, which has been eaten up by their nominated Democrats.

Last but not least, if you cannot encourage someone from doing good, so at least do not discourage those who are trying to work sincerely, this process might take some time but change and revolution never comers over night and you certainly have to pay the price, sacrifice and untiring effort as a NATION not only as one man standing.

Best these Che Guerreros can do is to nominate the best man for Pakistan and if they cannot go out on streets, cant protest, think they are too sissy to take a hit of some SOTI(stick) in their back so they should come outside of their homes and aware people to cast their vote for the right man, get themselves registered for the votes, help others register and spread positivity among the people they know and give out hope instead of spreading misery.

Mind it ” Pakistan is here to stay ” so be a Proud Pakistani and spread Pakistaniyat across the Globe. One day all these efforts will bring the CHANGE that we all look upto. There is no force that can destroy Pakistan except it’s own people who do not realize the importance of this piece of land that we were given.

Disclaimers:

  • Whatever I have written here is not to discourage anyone but to give a wake up call to all those who are going to read this and might be enjoying the luxuries that this country has given and still are mostly found complaining about not being given anything in return.
  • In this article I am sharing all those real life experiences that I had with most of the Youth Organizations of Pakistan, which we think are the final HOPE.
  • I am open for criticism but if they are based on the facts and not based on some home cooked stories, represent some brainwashed mindset and are intended to correct me if I am wrong at any point. Pakistan Zindabad !!!

We all need to gather under the flag of Pakistan not any other flag that stops us from becoming a Nation - AT

Nations that allow their Integrity & Dignity for Sale threatened its own survival. Pakistani nationover the past few decades had been a victim of poor decision making by its top notch Leadership,where they not only compromised on the National Security but also harmed the Nationality and pride of a common Pakistani.
Though, I can share so many examples that can support my argument up here but I would liketo choose the latest incident that took place in Lahore on 27th January, 2011 in the busy marketof Lahore, where an American National, Raymond Davis (alleged to be a C.I.A Contractorin Pakistan) brutally murdered two Pakistani Citizens and tried to escape. Local populationmanaged to get him arrested and put him behind bars.

He was tried for over 1.5 month and during all that various  Political Parties claimed that they will make certain that the  suspect will be held accountable for the crime he  committed. Pakistani Politicians, because of their past  record were not trusted by the general public. This  Raymond Davis issue have become an immediate sensation  in the mainstream media across the World. Wherein, every  TV Anchor criticise the fate of this U.S citizen Raymond Davis exposing more of his activities and background information’s and the reasons of his prolonged stay in Pakistan.

Pakistani decision makes who decided the fate of the nation without taking their consent

Conflicting statements among Public officials belonging to the same political parties alsoexacerbated the anger of the people all over the country when Mr.Shahbaz Sharif – CM Punjab who belongs to the ruling party in Punjab PML-N with 60% weight age in the provincialassembly issued a firm statement;

We will not release Raymond Davis at any cost by selling our integrity ” – Shahbaz Sharif

During his pronouncement regarding Davis case was not yet settled, and on 16th March 2011, Judge Muhammad Yousaf Aujla and Judicial Magistrate Chaudhry Aneeq Anwar from Lahore Court announced the indictment of Raymond Davis that he will be released, a murderer of two citizen who was accused for killing two Pakistanis but also for attempting terrorism act in Pakistan, involved in suspicious activities in the country, not holding Diplomatic Immunity and several other charges.

This unilateral decision by local court of Lahore has raised many questions not only in the minds of Pakistani Nation but also to various human rights activist and organizations that operates in Pakistan. 15 minutes after Raymond Davis was released by Punjab’s Law Minister Rana SanaUllah belonging to the same party defended the decision by calling it a court’s decision, (opposite to people’s expectations). This is not the first time that such incidents of political maeuverings transpired under the governance of PML-N.

Mir Aimal Kansi who was handed over to U.S Authorities by Nawaz Sharif's Government

Nearly 14 years ago when Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif then had “pleased” the Clinton administration by allowing the extradition of Mir Aimal Kansi, one of FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives of that time, and also assisted the US Intelligence and FBI by providing them details of his whereabouts, under the weight of the extradition treaty, Mir Aimal Kansi was tried in the US court on the grounds of Terrorism . Hewas found guilty and was executed by lethal injection on November 12, 2002.

Pakistani Nation is not surprised with PML-N’s inclination towards the United States at suchtime. On the contrary, failure of Pakistan Military & ISI cannot be ignored. Some sources confirmed that PPP Government, PML-N along with Pakistan’s Military, ISI were fully on board with this idea of letting Raymond Davis go.

COAS - General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kiyani & DG ISI - General Ahmed Shuja Pasha

People of Pakistan were outrage that Pakistani Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kiyani and DG ISI General Shuja Pasha did not took a viable stand against such actions when it had become a matter of national security and could have sparked a new round of terrorism and threat to the sovereignty of the country. Not only this Pakistan’s So-Called Independent Judiciary led by its Chief Justice Chaudhry Iftikhar Ahmad failed to let justice takes its course by releasing him without taking Suo Moto action against the unfair trial of Raymond Davis.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari & Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani are not spared at this moment as it was already expected that they too will not handle the case as per the expectations set from them by the millions of Pakistanis. This was clearly indicated when Pakistan’s Ex-Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi resigned from his position calling his Party bilateraland interested in releasing Raymond Davis.

U.S Vice President Barkley & Pakistan's First Prime Minister Nawab Liaquat Ali Khan - 1950

The present leadership of Pakistan and their rotten moral value, my mind forces me to go back in May-June, 1950 when Pakistan’s First Prime Minister visited the United States of America on his official visit and there He met with leaders of US Trade and Industry, who promised all possible military and economic assistance in case Pakistan recognized Israel. The American Industrialists also underlined the importance of such a package for the new state of Pakistan. Liaquat Ali Khan in his known gentle tone replied:

Gentlemen! Our soul is not for sale.

Another example was set by Pakistan’s First Military Ruler Field Marshall Ayub Khan. According to Syed Sharif Uddin Pirzada, French President de Gaulle had personally told Ayub Khan in 1967 that France was ready to provide `full’ nuclear assistance to Pakistan. In return hesimply asked that France be allowed to mine for uranium in the northwest and share it equally with Pakistan. `Our “friends” may not like it,’ M M Ahmad told Ayub, and in any case, what dowe need this expensive technology for.’ Words to that effect. But that is how Pakistan missed the opportunity of becoming a nuclear power at least two decades earlier than it did – and minus allthe eternal blackmail and intimidation.

Two Field Marshals: Sir Ayub Khan with Sir Claude Auchinleck

Now Raymond Davis has gone back to his homeland but still, there are lot, more people likehim that are operating in Pakistan and are exporting terrorism from Afghanistan to Pakistan. I sincerely hope that this negligence by the Pakistani Authorities will prove to be the last, also I expect the nation to respond to this incident the way it should be, so that Pakistani Authorities will never again think to compromise our National Sovereignty and play the role for what they were elected for , or else their fate will be decided by the Pakistani Population of 18 Crore .

Oue Leaders will have to realize that they have to

Keep the National Interest First “, as it was , is and will going to be ”  Pakistan First ” – Pakistan Zindabad !!!!

Pakistani Flag shall be kept above
