According to media reports, Sind High Court (SHC) has instructed the government to remove the name of former dictator General (R) Pervez Musharraf from the exit control list (ECL).
So, all the mess Musharraf gang created is finally paying off. Pakistan is still in ruins from his policies and will plunge into more chaos but then who cares?
Finally, PMLN surrendered as expected and didn’t prosecute the cases seriously with full intent. This is NRO2 and nothing else which was expected from political parties like PPP and PMLN who made deals with Occupied Armed Forces and their foreign masters to come into power.
The disappointment is more from PTI and Imran Khan who danced to the tune of establishment and helped them create a distraction in the form of Geo.
Now, forget any kind of justice for missing persons too and they will be left for facing baton charges on the streets. No one will blame army as it is a grave sin and blasphemy to criticize an army which is at war (self-imported).
Some interesting things to note from recent events:
Military establishment especially Musharraf gang is doing everything they can to create the right kind of chaos to make grounds for his safe exit. I have been saying that they will burn the whole country, even if they have to, to protect dictator and his team, to continue his war policies and to get away from cases like missing persons case.
So far they are able to get the desired outcome from most of the things :
a) By doing Hamid Mir episode they were able to get the angry response from Geo which resulted in its shut down.
b) They used the distraction from Geo issue to do aerial strikes which triggered revenge attacks in Karachi and other places so now dialogues option is pretty much gone. It means TTP reacted as the establishment expected them to do so.
c) They were even able to marginalize anti-war parties by distracting them using issues like #Geo and that stupid issue of Shaista Lodhi show. Even PTI and Imran Khan fell for that.
d) Nawaz Sharif has no chance of stopping the establishment as he has also made deals with them to grab power. rigging in 2013 Elections of Pakistan was not possible without establishment support.
The only player which dodged the bullet is MQM and despite serious hatred for their politics and tactics, I must say they played well for their own sake.
There was a serious plan to replace Altaf Hussain and install a new leader like Ishrat ul Ibad or bring back Mustafa Kamal or even #Musharraf as Altaf was not allowing even Musharraf to share political base of Karachi which establishment needs for Musharraf.
They tried to use the recent Altaf Hussain arrest situation but the show of ground mafia power by MQM made them to change their minds as they want to replace Altaf but not at the cost of losing ground support of MQM for this war and other policies.
MQM is still with Musharraf but not at the cost of Altaf and its Musharraf who will be looking at MQM for support not the other way around as attempted by the establishment.
I hate bhair bakri (sheeple) attitude of many Muhajirs in Karachi when it comes to following Altaf or surrendering their freedom in front of him by force but it seems these are the only things which helped MQM survived the hijacking attempt by establishment and now establishment still needs MQM for this war, Musharraf and other issues.
For last 6-7 decades army is exploiting ethnic, sectarian and social class prejudices to rule either directly through martial laws or indirectly during puppet or so called civilian governments. Nationalism is another card along with Shaheed card which they use very often to recover their image when their big blunders bring them under some criticism.
Even in this fake war on terror, they used sectarian, ethnic and social class prejudices to forward war agenda in Pakistan and if we are seeing the results in the form of Shia-Sunni or Sufi-Salafi wars or similar other conflicts then we shouldn’t feel shocked. Its the similar outcome they wanted but perhaps a bit more under control where they have command over resulting situations so that they can use these situations for their advantage. They were fools if they were expecting any good out of these evil, corrupt and stupid policies. This mess can only be cleaned if we start valuing our freedom and develop some sense of justice instead of worshiping false gods like troops, mullahs, feudal rulers, sufis, mafia lords or others.
War defeats and loss of half country should tell us that this current colonial legacy based army structure is bogus and not designed for defense but 4 martial laws show it is designed for proxy rule of foreign powers. It was army which gave bases to Americans and invited drones and gave NRO with the help of Americans/British so that this war can go on. its army which made Pakistan a front line american ally in this war against afghans or Pakistanis.
Geo definitely played a doubtful role in 2013 elections but using that issue to promote troop worship is something really disappointing from PTI. Geo is a private TV with business interests so one can expect these things from them and the solution is to change the channel. Focus should have been on the rigging which couldn’t have happened without the support of military and civil security establishments, who were supposed to secure the electoral booths and we saw how it went.
If PTI and Imran Khan are thinking that they will get something good out for the country or for the party by supporting the troops on wrong things then they should learn from their friends in KPK government i.e. Jamaat-e-Islami which supported the troops on many occasions especially in 1971 and we can see how establishment treats them. JI gave lots of sacrifices for establishment blunders in 71 and ended up facing most of the fall out. Even the recent 10 party alliance or new IJI didn’t give them anything.
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto launched his career as Gen (Retarded) Ayub’s puppet, became CMLA with the help of army, supported military’s policies towards bengalis and we saw what these troops did to him.
Nawaz Sharif, another product of establishment, was forced into exile. Even in 2013 elections he came to power through more deals and we will see how hard it will be for him to keep up the promises especially on issues like peace with India or on Musharraf case or on missing persons case (We already saw what happened with them in Islamabad).
Benazir Bhutto made NRO deal and we can see how it ended.
I mean, what the heck is wrong with politicians and even their supporters? Why can’t they see the real root causes of the problem which are related to the British legacy proxy ruling structure in the form of occupied mercenary armed forces? How will they be able to solve fundamental issues if they try to please the real devil?
The troop pleasing attitude is expected from feudal-corporatist politicians like Nawaz or Zardari, mafias like MQM etc but a party which promotes justice and human rights and ends up surrendering in front of troop worship mindset is really disappointing.
I really hate myself while writing this but need to write it to give an honest view point.
I am really disappointed with almost all of my Shia friends who support this war. I thought there must be some good significant number of Shias in Pakistan who don’t blindly toe the line of that Jerk Khemenei or Seestani but here it seems its not the case and almost all are determined to push not only their selves in this more war mess and resulting terrorism but also others too. Almost all my Shia friends cannot see the fact they are being used as a fuel for this war by Pakistani and other pro-war establishments including their beloved Khomenist regime in Iran.
I also criticize sunni or deobandi or ahl-e-hadith or other sects and social classes for the hate based crap some of their leaders or other people do (LeJ or ST or Mumtaz Qadri or Malik Ishaq types) but a clear thing which disappoints me is that others have broad range of views and diversity at extremes (almost all against innocent killings except few mad people) but for my almost all Shia friends it looks that they are toeing some kind of deep rooted hate based agenda against others with no room for reconciliation.
They need to know no anti-war on terror person supports suicide attacks on Hazara or on other Shia communities but what I have seen is that almost all (not all) of my Shia friends feel really happy when they know about deaths of people including children from other sects in tribal areas, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan or any where else. Even in Pakistan, they don’t really sympathize with anyone else but merely use one majority sect like Barelvi against the others like Deobandi or Ahl-e-Hadith. The trend is not just in religious maniacs but also evident in so called liberal or moderates.
I have always criticized army for this war mess but those who think they are being victimized should also see where they are going or what they are becoming in blind hatred.
They are trying to eliminate any space for those who want peaceful resolution of this war issue as probably it doesn’t fit into their hate based agenda to settle some centuries old good for nothing historical issues. Anti-war on terror people always condemn LeJ or other groups but unfortunately my Shia friends almost never condemn aerial bombings or military’s use of heavy conventional or even chemical weapons against other sects which is a crime even in worldly laws.
I don’t have any sympathies now for those who want innocent killings on both sides to satisfy their hatred for other sects and social classes. my only concern is those unrelated (who do not support this war or resulting terrorism) people who die as collateral damage but unfortunately there is no way to discriminate one from the other in aerial or suicide bombings which Shia groups want when they support this war.
May the wrath of Allah be on those from both sides of the conflict (Army, TTP, MWM,LeJ,SUC,SIC, PPP, ST,PMLN,MQM or others) who support these mass murders either through aerial/drone/military bombings or through suicide attacks.
Even India never does aerial bombings (drone or jet) on civilian populated areas despite almost 2 dozens of insurgencies.
I pray for the hardest wrath of Allah on those who consider innocent dead kids as an unavoidable or tolerable or necessary collateral damage.
I still pray for the blind followers of this corrupt system to get on the path of justice and peace but it seems we are going for complete self-destruction.
If the hatred is about religion or sects then at least while supporting aerial bombings, we should remember what the holy book says:
“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]
Recent statement by Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf, Imran Khan regarding Pak-India joint civil nuclear project on border is make some headlines in the news.
I think it’s not a bad idea but private sector should take the lead. It seems not everyone including people in PMLN or so called liberals like MQM are not happy with it and they are trying to show some security concerns regarding the project.
How scientifically uneducated people are that they cannot understand the difference between civil nuclear and military nuclear programs. He is talking about using the existing tech infrastructure in both countries for the betterment of the people like countries in Europe did after world wars when they built CERN or cooperated for other areas.
It is amazing that people who pushed Pakistan into this self-destructive imported ‘war on terror’ are criticizing a positive suggestion by someone who was warning Pakistanis about the negative consequences of jumping into the war, more than a decade ago.
He also talked about resolving the core issue of Kashmir, the cause which I strongly support, but not much focus on that by MQM or other pro-War groups who have been found working for foreign powers including USA or India on numerous occasions. As I pointed out previously that fake liberals can’t understand the meaning of equality based mutually beneficial relationships. They only know about master-slave or enemy-enemy relationships. Kashmir is core issue not just between India and Pakistan but the real party in the issue are Kashmiri people. Instead of using the issue for political point scoring or exploiting nationalist jingoism, we need serious steps towards peace in the region. I think if we can find people like Imran Khan on Indian side as well then we can have a good chance of peace in the region and justice based resolution of issues.
It is interesting to see that a British citizen Altaf hussain is using his mafia apparatus for collection extortion money in Ramadan and forcing them to give zakat and fitra (religious charity money to help poor) to MQM (Altaf’s party). This money is used to buy weapons and conduct terrorist activities in Pakistan. The money found in Altaf’s London residence was also collected like this.
We demand british police to take actions against its citizens and ask british government that why they are involved in such crimes by letting Altaf London as a base for Mafia activities.
This hypocrisy will only fuel hatred against Britain as people see it as a source of terrorism in Pakistan. On one hand British government pretends to be the champion of democracy and human rights and chase terrorist all over the world and on the other hand they sponsor terrorism in Pakistan.
People should speak against it not only in Pakistan and UK but all over the world.Please register your complain regarding this issue:
British citizens should ask their government that why they are harboring such terrorists of MQM and risking the lives of people living in UK as well.
PTI leader Zahra Shahid Hussain Murdered: British government should stop harboring terrorists in London
It is shocking and sad to hear about the brutal murder of PTI senior leader Zahra Shahid Hussain who was shot dead by two target killers in Phase 4 defence, in front of her house.
PTI is taking part in elections from that area. MQM, a known mafia type political party of that area is being accused by PTI and other opposition parties for massive rigging in the recent elections. MQM’s head Altaf Hussain, a British citizen, gave open threats of murder to his opponents in media and politics. He also threatened to separate Karachi from Pakistan. Its time for us to raise our voice against this British citizen and also raise our voice against British government which is harboring this mafia lord and a known mass murderer.
Report Zahra Shahid Hussain’s murder on the link below and also tell British police about the hypocrisy of their rulers who are hunting potential terrorists all over the world but harboring a mass murderer and a mafia lord in their capital city.
It is a shame for British government that they call themselves champions of democracy but they protect a person who openly rigs elections, threatens people if they don’t except his mafia type control over the city and kills them if they don’t obey him.
Also, its time to protest in front of British High Commission for harboring a terrorist and a mass murderer.
We also demand British civil society and media to support Pakistanis in the cause of peace and justice.
It seems, Karachi will still need to wait for a long time for any change. Karachi is again seeing rigged elections or no elections at all in many areas. There are reports of violence in areas like NA-255 and no elections in NA-250 and other parts of Karachi.
My experience as a voter at NA256-Meridian Grammar School polling station: Delayed start of voting. People with MQM badges openly moving in the polling station and making sure that their known voters get the chance out of turn for casting their votes while others get frustrated in heat. This will discourage new voters which are more likely to cast their vote for PTI.
Also inside polling station they are taking cards of old people and first timers to cast their votes.Those who knew what they are doing resisted but many dont even know what is happening. If this is happening in educated areas then forget about other areas.
MQM is a product of establishment and if America wants MQM so establishment (Army, rangers etc) will keep a blind on what ever MQM does.
Despite all this people should come forward and vote! Vote PTI in Karachi to show you are not sheeple.
