Not that I have lesser faith on the capabilities of newly appointed COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa , what concerns me more is the fact that our Political Elite instead of appointing someone who can prove to be a better for the country rather picks or choose men for the offices who they think will not be any threat for them.

I have great regards and I am fond of many of initiatives that General Raheel Shareef took during his tenure, despite many people criticizing him for some political reasons relevant or irrelevant, I won’t get into the details of those accounts here, as their point of view can be personal or political in nature and I do not want to limit my thoughts to one point or the fact only, killing scope of my take on Gen Raheel Shareef.
Earlier during the appointment of General Pervez Musharraf, General Raheel Shareef as Army Chief and now of General Qamar Javed Bajwa, basic criteria or assessment matrix was to see who is lesser harmless to the political interests of the ruling party. All these three chiefs appointed by Nawaz Sharif, only point that he and his advisers emphasized more on was new Chief has to be lenient to them, that is a different thing that time proved them to be otherwise and for all the right reasons however, General Qamar Javed Bajwa is still untested and I am quite sure of the fact that he will also without coming any political, local or international influence will continue serving Pakistan and it’s interests, geo-politically and internally both.

Pakistan Army is probably the only institution on which we can trust fully putting our faith to it that it brings forward people on merit, knowing the internal assessment criteria that exist in the organization and it lack tendency of introducing nepotism unlike Civil Institutions.
Also sometimes it’s hard to pick and choose the best men as it’s the institution formed on the gentlemen with unique traits or in other words pros and cons, rest is assured every Army Officer works in better interest of Pakistan. It is hard to say who served better than who, as every person who gets onto the seat brings along his own understanding about certain matters based on his experience working with this prestigious organization.
I believe and hope that in the years to come Pakistan Army will add on the procedure of bringing forward the officers purely on the basis of seniority with no so called ineffective supreme commander in chief of the armed forces or the people with their vested interests handpicking any of the officer for their personal and political interests overlooking the services of the other officers. This can politicize the only credible institution we have, when Supreme Court can bring forward the man with seniority to the position why can’t it be done in the Armed Forces of Pakistan?

Today, I am forced to think and what I’m thinking is that how we let go some of the super finest officers like Gen (r) Haroon Aslam, Gen (r) Tariq Khan and now soon to be Gen (r) Ishfaq Nadeem just because their stance on non state actors and their domestic facilitators, to whom rulers thought these officers could become a threat for their vested interests, not tolerating their corrupt practices, their incline towards enemies of Pakistan and will force them to ensure transparency and good governance which could have forced the ruling elite to follow their footsteps hence all these brilliant officers were superseded in their respective tenures. To set the record straight this adventurism was started by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and still its being practiced in Pakistan.
Qamar-Bajwa.jpgGeneral Qamar Javed Bajwa is a newly appointed Army Chief of my beloved Army and I have great respect and honor for him and I extend my full support as a concern and responsible citizen for my Sippah Salaar also I wish General Raheel Shareef a long healthy and prosperous life ahead. People who are criticizing him shall realize there is a capacity to which a person can be stretched and let to perform.
In countries like Pakistan, where people are more critiques and lesser cooperative it is not any individual’s failure to not to perform to it’s full capacity, it is our collective failure if we put the whole burden on an individual/group and expecting him to clear all the mess that we all have created.

Before I sign off, I think it’s a great a hypocrisy at the such people’s end who had been voting the failures in past and recent days and expected General Raheel Shareef to clean their and their electable’s dirt. In my humble view, General Raheel Shareef’s job was to secure Pakistan from internal and external threats to which he neutralized mainly with the initiation of Operation Zarb e Azb, Operation Awaran, Karachi Operation and Operation Khyber One. In my humble view, political mess, disqualification of the candidates, legal action and accountability has to be ensured by Civil Institutions like Supreme Court of Pakistan, National Accountability Bureau, Election Commission of Pakistan, National Assembly, Federal Investigation Agency, Intelligence Bureau and Federal/Provincial Police and not duty of General Raheel Shareef or of the Armed Forces of Pakistan.

It was the conduct of General Raheel Shareef against the terrorists which let Pakistanis associate all their hopes with him in no time. We need to analyze his tenure realistically as we were unfair in linking hopes with him in many of the areas which didn’t even fell in his domain and mandate. Before you criticize General Raheel Shareef be honest and revisit his tenure as Army Chief, you will see many great successes and accomplishments where he went out of the way and completed or initiated them including CPEC, Shanghai Cooperation, our formal entry into Nuclear Services Group and many more.

I will surely miss General Raheel Shareef and I pray to Allah that this honorable institution of Pakistan Army keep giving us gallant and valor officers like him, who not only earned respect from Pakistan but from the International Community as well.

Good Bye General Raheel Shareef, we will surely miss you and hope that newly appointed Army Chief will not let us miss you that much.

Generals

By: Amaan Tareen

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.

dharna

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.

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?

tuq

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?

16706-mush-1364625706-852-640x480

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!
