Pakistan’s political dynamics has seen its different colors over the last six decades. The country saw some of the most oppressive military regimes and also some of the most corrupt periods of elected plutocracy. Our history saw struggles between left and right and also became an active player in the cold war period.
Though our politics has been influenced strongly by the foreign masters of our ruling elites. But in that our establishment has always played a vital role either as a proxy rule for foreign powers or as a king maker in local politics, many times the role has been a mixture of both. The honest reality of our history is that this role of our establishment has seriously dented our political culture, damaged rule of law and also harmed our rights as free citizens of this country.
A country which was founded on the principles of justice and equality didn’t live up to the expectations due to the dismal performance of our establishment and their cultivated corrupt political culture based on feudal-corporatist mindsets. Right from the days of Ghulam Muhammad, Pakistani establishment strengthened its hold on the affairs of the state and its politics. Pakistan was thrown into an unwanted cold war and thus it gave up its freedom which it got few years ago into the hands of imperialist forces lead by USA, which at that time took place of United Kingdom as world super power along with its rival USSR.
Initially establishment rule was evenly balanced between civil and military establishments but later on especially after Ayub Khan martial law, military acted as the main force of establishment. Now by establishment we can easily refer to GHQ as main source of political power. Even Fatimah Jinnah, one of the strong political figure of our country and sister of founding father Muhammad Ali Jinnah was not able to defeat this system. But her role in politics did make our establishment to get involved more in party politics or politics of masses. Now if I see things as an ordinary student of politics, foundation of PPP was meant to fill the political vacuum in the country so that those forces including Awami League, Jamat e Islami and others, who opposed Ayub martial law openly could not strengthen their grounds as alternate political reality other than establishment.
This approach worked in West Pakistan due to strong feudal system but failed in East Pakistan so establishment with the backing of feudal political class decided to use force on our own people. And we all know the consequences of 1971 riots and later Indo-Pak war. There was a chance for the nation to learn lessons from the mistakes and change the future course of actions.
But it didn’t happen except for few adjustments, including a real major one of developing 1973 constitution, our political outlook remained same. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who was a product of establishment, who tried to become larger than he should be in the eyes of establishment and also started a nuclear program against the wishes of our imperialist masters, became a liability to the system and so he was removed from the scene through Zia martial law and later hanged till death in a murder case of controversial nature.
Removal of Bhutto, instead of giving some relief to martial law forces became counter productive especially in the province of Sind so a new political reality of MQM was given space and support by military establishment. In Zia’s time not only constitution was treated badly but his use of religion to give cover to his oppressive and hypocrite regime proved to be another major blunder in the history of our country.
Later after the death of General(R) Zia ul Haq, PPP with sympathy votes and deals with local and international establishment came into power. Instead of learning from past mistakes and doing accountability of constitutional violations and corruptions by Zia regime, PPP started a new era of corruption and nepotism in Pakistani politics. They were also joined by their rivals, PML(N) which was a product of Zia remains, in this political culture. This culture saw its ups and downs and political maneuvering by establishment through the formation of IJI and sacking of governments.
In this time Nawaz Sharif of PML(N), also emerged as a big political force through a huge mandate in 1997 elections by bagging 137 seats. Nawaz tried to undermine the unwanted reality of our political history i.e. military establishment and did not follow the line of imperialist master while conducting nuclear tests in 1998,was sacked in a military coup by General (R) Musharraf. In Nawaz’s sacking his controversial 15th amendment and attacks on judiciary also played a key role as these actions weakened the rule of law and supremacy of constitution in the country and thus giving more room for unconstitutional measures by opportunist forces of martial law.
Musharraf rule proved to be one of the most disastrous periods of Pakistani history. In this tenure Pakistan get involved into a foreign war and this war was later dragged into our cities through some of the most evil policies. This war and Musharraf’s rule converted the diversity of our society into a clash between sects, ethnicity and social classes.
Actions like attack on Supreme Judiciary, abrogation of constitution, illegal abductions, extra judicial killings, military operations including heavy bombings on civilian areas, 12 May 2007 and 9 March 2007 and others really broke the back of Pakistani economy and society. The society after Musharraf is more fragmented and country is facing some of the worst consequences of his actions.
Then another foreign sponsored deal, between forces of martial law and feudal-corporatist political elite, resulted in current NRO government. In return of Musharraf’s safety and continuation of his imperialist slave policies, current ruling alliance was not only given power but all criminal cases were removed in the name of reconciliation. In the mean time, removal of Benazir Bhutto from the scene also helped her cronies and beneficiaries of NRO deal to capture more sympathy votes. Despite a report by UN, Benazir murder case is still not seeing much progress except for cover ups.
Our history saw politics of so called Left and so called Right, so called Red and so called Green and also the so called struggle between forces of dictatorships and so called forces of democracy. The reality is most of these setups were fake and were meant to serve the goals of ruling elite and their foreign masters.
Old games are now again being played by our ruling elite with assistance from foreign masters. Former dictator Musharraf is planning to come back into politics. Pir Pagara has also started his alliance of failed politicians in the name of uniting Muslim League.
PPP and allied parties are still playing their dirty games to strengthen their rule through fear and control politics as a result a commercial hub like Karachi is seeing one of the worst periods of target killings.Institutional corruption, high inflation and a huge government-created energy crisis to pave way for their corruption in Rental Power Projects are putting us into further economic disaster.
Natural resources and assets are on sale for nothing and again our nation is being fooled just for the monetary gains of few.So called opposition comprising of PML-Q and PML-N are busy in playing their hypocritical role. People are still not able to come out of their prejudices and short term greed and so giving strength to this system through “Zindabad” mentality.
Even floods have not changed the situation much. Supreme Court, which has provided some hope after restoration is being sidelined by government and institutions. Lawyers and media which emerged as a new force in national politics are now being divided through money and threats. Government involvement in SCBA elections and threats to media are examples of this approach. Situation in Afghanistan will come with its own dynamics and impacts on Pakistani politics.
Luckily few good things happened in recent times including the revival of civil society, emergence of free and resilient media, and an independent Supreme Court. These are real challenging times for those who love freedom and justice. These include all those who are struggling for rule of law, justice, accountability, freedom and respect for nation, and above all a better Pakistan. Lot is needed to be done and it seems to be an almost impossible task but lets hope for the best as we are responsible for our actions and decisions not the given conditions and out of control realities.
Benazir monument plan approved–>Another way to waste Tax Payer Money to promote worship of the feudal elite.
Zardari government has approved a 1 billion rupees “Benazir Monument” project from “Tax Payer Money” under ministry of culture.
A country which is facing the worst natural disaster of its history cannot afford such waste of money. On one hand the Pakistan Feudal Party (aka PPP) government is planning to impose flood tax like the war tax they are forcefully taking and on the other hand they are busy in wasting the hard earned money of Pakistani tax payers on the promotion of feudal worship in Pakistan.
Why the hell we have to pay for Benazir Mandirs all over the country and schemes with the name of Benazir Bhutto?
Is the country a private property of Pakistan Feudal Party leadership comprising of Zardaris-Bhuttos and Team which seems to have motto –>RAJ KAI LUTTO, PHIR PHUTTO AUR NAARA MAROO JIYAAAAAYYY BHUTTOOOO!!!!!!
Note that the purpose of UN commission was fact-finding not fixing the responsibility.
1) Why Musharraf was given a safe exit when even PPP workers think he was responsible for BB’s murder? Was it due to the fact that Mr. Zardari was one of the beneficiaries or it was due to some pressure?
2) Why the key responsible persons continued to work on their positions without proper accountability during the government of PPP including interior ministry officers, police officers, intelligence agency officers including former DG MI Nadeem Ijaz, former ISI head and Vice Army Chief General Kiyani?
3) Kiyani is now Army Chief and was representing Musharraf during NRO deal. Will he allow further investigation on the role of ISI, MI,Musharraf and Kiyani himself?
4) In Rehman Malik’s car, two other persons were also sitting. These two persons are Babar Awan and Musharraf’s close friend and former Core Commander Mangla Lt. General (R) Tauqir Zia(who was also the Chairman PCB during Musharraf time). Will some probe them for their role and negligence?
5) Why the government of Pakistan delayed UN Commission Report for 15 days (till 15th April 2010)? Even though UN Commission didn’t conduct any new interview after 31st March 2010 as opposite to the government’s claim that the Commission is requested to conduct few interviews. Rehman Malik even yesterday revised the same claim.
6) Will this murder go into the dustbin of Waziristan or some serious investigations will be done to investigate this high-profile murder?
Lets see if millions of dollars invested by a poor nation on this report will be of any use or not?
I hope some serious and independent investigation and trial will be conducted for this murder.
9 ) Commission didn’t find evidence against Asif Zardari’s and any of the family members’ involvement in this murder.
Defaming judiciary, denying to implement court orders, playing shaheed and sind card–>Pakistan Feudal Party playing as dirty as corrupt-feudal politicians can
In a recent Central Executive Committee of Pakistan Feudal Party (aka PPP or Pakistan People’s Party) has shown their defiance to implement Supreme Court’s
NRO judgment especially with regards to Swiss cases.
Taking to media Fauzia Wahab (spokeperson PPP) said that Swiss cases were made against Benazir Bhutto and in CEC they have decided not to open cases
against Nusrat and Benazir Bhutto. It seems the party is again playing Shaheed (Martyr) card to get sympathies of people to cover up Zardari and team corruption.
Also there is a media campaign launched by PPP against judiciary going on. The campaign is not only being launched in Pakistan but in international media as well.
Zardari and team has also been playing liberal and Sind cards as well.
We need to beware of all these things as civil society, they are doing this to further destabilize things as they are not able to run the country properly. PPP wants to come out
from this situation as a victim.
These corrupt feudal politicians are playing as dirty as they can but we need to stand by the justice and rule of law and don’t fall into any illusions they create.
Delay in UN report and Fatima Bhutto waiting for justice.–>Does PPP respect Bhutto legacy or they just cash it?
We have seen PPP as a feudal party always cahsing the emotions of people by playing democracy and shaheed cards. Both the cards are played over the legacy left by Bhutto family starting from Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Recent elections were another occasion where they cashed the Bhutto shaheed card but this time it was Benazir Bhutto’s murder which gave them votes and paved way for Zardari and team to takeover the country.
Benazir murder never got importance in PPP government and proper FIR wasn’t registered after a long time. A UN commission without any mendate to pin point anyone was set for fact finding.
Now when the commission was about to deliver the final report it was stopped by government of Pakistan to do so, Why and Who they are trying to protect?
On the other hand another Bhutto (Fatima) is demanding justice for the murder of her father Murtaza bhutto and it doesn’t look possible in the presence of current PPP government founded by the father of Murtaza Bhutto.
‘My father’s killers leading nation’
KARACHI – Fatima Bhutto, daughter of late Mir Murtaza Bhutto, has said those, who orchestrated the crime of assassination of her father, are currently leading the nation.
She was addressing the launching ceremony of her book ‘Songs of Blood and Sword’, held at Clifton Gardens here on Tuesday.
Political leaders, diplomats, writers and people from all walks of life attended the function.
Mir Murtaza Bhutto’s widow and Chairperson of PPP-Shaheed Bhutto, Ghinwa Bhutto, welcomed the guests, while Fatima’s younger brother Zulfikar Bhutto Junior and her cousin (Shahanwaz Bhutto’s daughter) Sassi Bhutto also accompanied her.
Fatima, wearing green dress, revealed the story of her father’s assassination which took place 14 years ago near her house, 70 Clifton, saying that her father was shot several times and the bullet that had killed him was fired at point-blank range.
Giving details about the tragic incident, she said 14 years ago seven men were murdered near her house.
“The streetlights went off and roads leading to 70 Clifton were blocked by heavy contingents of police who were waiting to kill my father,” she added.
Without taking name of President Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan’s most outspoken political commentator and granddaughter of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Fatima Bhutto said the man, who orchestrated the crime of killing her father, is presently leading the nation.
However, the police officers and other people who were charged in my father’s murder have been released due to the flaws in the system, and won national medals, she said.
NRO Detailed Judgment has been issued by Supreme Court of Pakistan. Previously on 16 December 2009, SC 17 member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary issued a short order which nullified the draconian law.
The 287 detailed judgment is written by CJP Ifikhar Chaudhary.

Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan has written a must read thought provoking article on 1971 Independence of Bangladesh.
Who is this Rehman Malik and why is he in the news for not so good reasons. And why is he still being kept in the government even when he can not be trusted as the items below will show:
“Rehman Malik rose to dizzying heights from a lowly grade 13 or 14 officer. Stories of Malik trying to worm his way through by bribing his seniors are still fresh in our minds. Come promotion time, he’d turn up at their homes with trays laden with designer suits. By golly, it worked!” 
Naseerullah Babar had tried to warn Benazir Bhutto to get a reliable security advisor as her potential murderers would have to come from within her party. He had advised against this third class officer to be part of her security chief. Malik was FIA chief and would report to Babar and his disapproval of Malik can be seen in the quoted article.
He was soon to replace Amin Fahim as Benazir’s dealer of the military and was the primary negotiator of the NRO:
Rehman Malik and illegal money:
He is known to have a lot of money illegally during Benazir’s time through corruption and money laundering.
Links with Foreign Agents:
Rehman Malik had dealings with Mosad and FBI during Benazir’s government
Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists, which amounted to a direct attack on the ISI. The Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists. The FIA leadership under Bhutto also angered Islamist elements because they allowed the extradited Ramzi Yousaf to the US for trial on the New York Trade Centre Bombing. One of the first acts of President Leghari after dismissing Benazir Bhutto on 05 November 1996 was to imprison the Ghulam Asghar, head of FIA, suspended on non specified corruption charges, and Rehman Malik, Addl. Director General FIA, was also arrested.
Working for Ejaz Shah, Tariq Aziz and Nadeem Taj
Rehman Malik had established good relations with the Musharraf, DG MI Ashfaq Kiyani, DG ISI Nadeem Taj and other top brass of Pakistani Army. When Benazir mentioned that the notorious Ejaz Shah, who was DG IB, and also known as the “handler of Osama bin Laden”, might be involved in the attack on her, Malik was summoned by DG ISI Nadeem Taj. The security provided to him was unprecedented because Ejaz Shah had accompanied him to the GHQ in order to work things out with DG ISI Taj and Rehman Malik.
“Earlier, Rehman Malik was taken aback when he was given extraordinary protocol at the Islamabad airport. He found dozens of top security and protocol officers receiving him inside the plane. A bulletproof car was specially parked close to the plane and he was taken out of the Islamabad airport amid tight security, which is not even available to the federal ministers.” 
What was this secret meeting all about? Why was he flown to meet Ejaz Shah who was one of the possible killers of Benazir as said by her? Why was Ejaz Shah present at this meeting to discuss security of Benazir when he was being alleged to be behind Oct 18 attack on Benazir? Rehman Malik did not respond to journalists when they came to know about the meeting and asked for his opinion:
“Talking to The News, Rehman Malik confirmed his meeting with DG ISI, but refused to comment on the nature of his talks. On the issue of extraordinary security provided to him by the government, Malik said, they had some concerns about my security and they acted on their own.”
Rehman Malik was the chief negotiator of Musharraf-Benazir deal and had established many key connections which he uses till now.
Suspicious activities around Benazir’s Assassination
First Interview of Rehman Malik, within hours of BB’s Death:
All videos and details can be seen here: http://pkpolitics.com/2008/01/04/fishy-character-rehman-malik/
- RM claims that his car was 4 feet away from BB’s car during incident and he also claims that he did not hear gunshots?
- Although being BB’s Chief Security Office (CSO), he did bother to call anyone in BB’s car [Naheed Khan, Amin Faheem, SP Major Imtiaz, Safdar Abbasi & 2 other persons]
- As per his understanding, BB was safe and this is what he told the Geo TV after the explosion.
- He says that they stopped at the Hospital and found that BB’s car was not coming. He took a U turn from there and found that BB’s car had already entered hospital and there was lots of crowd over there.
- He said that he was trying his best to get the custody of dead body As Soon As Possible from the Hospital. Why he wasn’t bothered about further investigation when he has been a Director General of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA)?
Rauf Klasra of The News claims that:
- Brigadier Cheema officially told on TV that BB was safe after confirming from CSO RM, who himself said the same on Geo TV
- As the tire of BB’s car got burst after the explosion, Major Imtiaz moved BB to Shery’s car after traveling a short distance
- RM went directly to Bilawal House in Islamabad and confined himself there until Zardari reached Islamabad from Dubai
- Babar Awan sitting next to RM says that they directly went to Bilawal House in Islamabad assuming that BB was okay and she was directly following their car.
- Once Babar found that BB did not reach Islamabad, Babar immediately rushed back towards Rawalpindi and RM did not accompany him to Rawalpindi.
- Babar’s statement (who was sitting next to RM) is in complete contradiction to RM’s claim that:
—> They returned to hospital from next U-Turn (as told to Iftikhar of Geo)
—> They stopped the car when they could not see lights of BB’s car anymore
Last but not least, the suspicious person with strange antics standing close to BB while she was addressing at Liaqat Baagh, was hired on special recommendation of Rehman Malik. This person, Khalid Shahinshah who was personal servant of BB, might have known about the explosion in the advance which could be the reason he rushed into the armored car before everyone else.
PPP sources have reported that the moment Benazir ended her address, this (servant) man was the first one to dive into her bullet proof Land Cruiser; an unusual change from past routine whilst he always boarded the vehicle after Benazir, often hanging by the external pedestals of her Cruiser, as was evident in videos.
One other household servant and Dr Safdar Abbassi got seated in the rear portion of the Cruiser, and when the suicide bomber blew himself apart, Khalid was also present in the Cruiser. Afterwards he (Khalid) went over to the Zardari House, Islamabad where he lived for two days, and did not visit Naudero despite Benazir’s death, making it there on third day. When informed about the video of his antics he promptly disappeared from the scene, over the excuse of his mother’s death.
Rehman Malik is a buddy of Tariq Aziz. His wife runs Nasir Nursing Home in Rawalpindi and his brothers in law do not die their identity as being Qadyanis. Rehman Malik is thus a bridge between Musharraf and Zardari. Fatima Bhutto (Read her interview in today’s Nation newspaper) blames specifically Asif Zardari for assassinating Murtaza Bhutto. Rehman Malik was the right hand man of Zardari and hence his role due to his high position in FIA makes him even more suspicious.
Rehman Malik who drives very fast on Islamabad streets breaking all laws, is trying to be over-smart and trying to stop restoration of judges and sacking of thoroughly corrupt and yes men judges ( How can they be judges when are bootlickers of dictators?) Rehman Malik had in hand with Farooq Naik are toeing Uncle SAM’s dirty lines and policies which are in fact 100% Satanic and anti people. Uncle SAM (Sub-animal materialism) does not free judiciary and true democracy in any Muslim country. So through dirty and behind the scene games Human Satans are playing their dirty games. Certainly such people must not be in any Government position and must be fired. Mr. Nawaz Sharif as well as all other political parties must demand his immediate expulsion. Rehman Malik played key role in induction of terrorists in Sind Cabinet which now contains over 13 proven die hard terrorists as ministers! CIA and International Zionism played key role in induction of MQM terrorists who carried out May 12 2007 Karachi Carnage and burnt lawyers alive on 9th April, 2008 are in the folds of PPP Sind Government as Uncle SAM demanded. How people of Sind will live peacefully and progress amidst these fully protected terrorists? Against the Shar (Mischief) of all these human Satans and Jin Satans we take Allah’s protection who is the Rabb of Falak and People as well the King and the God of all human beings.

Rehman Malik let Benazir’s killer and his close friend Ejaz Shah flee the country
April 29th, 2008 Arif Rafiq Posted in Ejaz Shah |
The previous Intelligence Bureau chief Ejaz Shah–accused by Benazir Bhutto of plotting the assassination attempt on her in Karachi–has been allowed to leave the country for Australia. The purpose and duration of his visit is unclear, but it’s worth noting that Pervez Musharraf, a close friend of his, attempted to post him as high commissioner to that country in 2004, but the Aussies seemed to have objected.
Bhutto’s MOSSAD security detail
Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists, which amounted to a direct attack on the ISI. The Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists
At her side today is Rehman Malik, a former Pakistan intelligence chief who followed Bhutto into exile and has become one of her key backers and advisers.
REHMAN MALIK, FORMER PAKISTANI INTELLIGENCE CHIEF: If you say people keep saying a lie, again and again, and again and again, it becomes true. And now it is our turn to say the truth again and again so people should know that she was not corrupt, she was never corrupt.
Malik has been central in negotiating her return and in negotiating an amnesty from any corruption charges with military ruler President Musharraf.
BENAZIR BHUTTO: We have not done any deal. We have held negotiations for the transition to democracy and certain initial positive developments have taken place in that regard.
Beyond the party faithful, her arrangement with General Musharraf has been viewed with cynicism. She’s portrayed as propping up a failing dictator to secure her own amnesty and share of power, but apparently they have more in common than many have assumed.
REPORTER: So there are similarities?
REHMAN MALIK: There are similarities. Moreover, we don’t want terrorism, General Musharraf doesn’t want terrorism, the international community doesn’t want terrorism. So this is a very common place thing, a very common issue?
It was Rehman Malik who initially told the press BB had been shot twice. In a bullet proof car?
Smells of double agent false flag assassination. Not Pervez despite 911 connection/ Remember FRAMED 7/7 Pakistani bombers. This is JWO region destabilisation and Balkanisation plan. Same as Iraq.
Paki nukes give falseflag terror a ramp up and excuse to invade
Rehman Malik goes to ALL major meetings even Negroponte, Peterson, etc
He does not know anything about the judges issue but is in the committee..
He also has been the one responsible for the delay of the polls.
EC confirms Malik’s key role in by-polls delay
Thursday, May 08, 2008
By Ansar Abbasi
ISLAMABAD: The controversy behind the postponement of the by-elections deepened on Wednesday when the Election Commission Secretary Kanwar Dilshad revealed that he had received a phone call from Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik, who had asked for a delay. This confirms a similar claim by the NWFP government. As Dilshad’s statement to The News firmly established that Rehman Malik was the man who had successfully executed the controversial postponement, it was still unclear who, between the Zardari House and the presidency, actually authored the script of the so-called conspiracy.
Rehman Malik was involved either directly or indirectly in Benazir’s death
He is close friends with Musharraf’s aides
Close friends with Ejaz Shah, the person responsible for Benazir’s Assassination
Already known to have acted on a conspiracy for the Presidency.
Emergency mailing list
Aitzaz Ahsan in Lahore said that the decision to hold a long march against Musharraf’s dictatorship and to
support the cause of justice is not withdrawn.
He also urged people to observe black flag week from 9 March to 16 March 2008.
He was addressing the representatives of civil society,lawyers , workers of PTI and PPP who were there outside
his residence to celebrate his release.
He warned if the newly elected parliament did not reinstate the judges and ensure independence of the judiciary
then it would be a fragile parliament and its prime minister and members will be weak. Time will come a dictator
will again sabotage it, he added. Members of assembly will be arrested and they will contact people to
solicit their support. Then no one will join hands with them, he underlined.
He also added that former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was in favor of reinstating the judiciary reffereing
to her November 10 statement in which she said that CJP Iftikhar is the Chief Justice of Pakistan.
