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.
For many Pakistanis, it seems west means US and UK. For slave minded fake liberals, it seems good relations with west means acting like a bitch of UK and US governments.Even on drones issue, key NATO member like Germany is not on the same page with USA and it tried to distance itself from the issue but Pakistan never bothered to approach these countries to bring some sanity in their partners.
Why should Pakistan government do that when it is run by fake liberals, sectarian fascists and slave minds who are working as mercenary for US administration? Other countries also know that so they don’t bother to come out like they did on Syria or even North Korea which are run by two most oppressive and brutal regimes.
Pak government, army and fake liberals don’t seem to have any idea of having relationships other than master-slave or enemy-enemy relationship.
China and US/Japan/Taiwan have serious issues which can turn into potential military clashes but they still enjoy good people to people relationship, trade on equal terms, academic collaboration etc. Pakistan, despite acting as a slave and mercenary for US and UK never bothered to establish serious academic relationship or research collaborations in civil or military areas. In fact some big technology based industrial projects and technology transfer happened through China, Russia, France, Germany and other partners on equal cooperation basis but still our fake liberals and establishment cannot come out of their colonial past of serving UK or the power which replaced it after second world war i.e. USA.
Even in US or UK, Pakistani establishment only focuses on security related institutions and never bothered to understand broader opinion which also include anti-war, non-interventionist, non-corporatist or anti-military industrial complex groups.
But then again what benefit will it give to establishment which relies on mercenary services to corporatists sitting in White house or military industrial complex which runs Pentagon?
PTI and their allies in KPK are taking a great step to show their disapproval against drone bombings on innocent civilians which are also violations of Pakistan’s sovereignty.
They are going to block NATO supplies on 23rd November 2013 and will hold protests in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan and also they are taking part in anti-drone protests in UK .
We wish them great success in their noble cause and appeal justice loving people in the world especially in Pakistan to support the cause.
It’s not those who opposed this American led war are responsible for 50,000+ unfortunate deaths. Responsibility lies on those jumped into this mess.
It’s not those who opposed this American led war are responsible for 50,000+ unfortunate deaths.
Prime responsibility lies on the planners of this war and those are fighting as hired guns, no matter how much they glorify it.
Secondary responsibility lies on those who supported it for business interests or sectarian and social class prejudices.
Pro-war fake liberal scum backed by mercenary army which murdered or supported the murder of thousands of innocent civilians including kids are now using useless issues to diver the attention from drone and NATO supply issue.
I may not fully agree with Munawwar Hassan views on Hakim ullah or army martyr issues but people should be free to express their views and we need to come out of ‘troop worship’ and fascist mindset. What kind of society we want to live in where we cannot even question the policies of corrupt generals or cannot make harsh angry comments even after seeing people being droned or bombed with the help of these generals?
For me the status of shaheed or martyr is irrelevant when unarmed innocent civilians including kids are dying in this war and we are busy in discussing some comments about an army fighting American war. Leave the status of soldiers or Talibans to Allah and focus on saving innocent lives.
Recent comments by Ameer e Jamat e Islami Munawwar Hussan regarding the status of martyr for Hakeem ullah Mehsud or for Pakistani soldiers fighting this American corporatist war.
It seems that pro-war lobby in media and civil society are trying to use this martyr (shaheed) debate issue to undermine drones and NATO supply issue. ISPR and its mouth pieces are also active now to take advantage from this debate and to play nationalism card and other cards they play to exploit sectarian and social class differences based fault lines.
Considering army soldiers dying while fighting this American war against Afghanistan/Pakistan or Hakeem ullah’s status as a martyr or terrorist is as subjective as discussing Abu lulu (murderer of Umar r.a.) should have a shrine in Iran or not.
The need is to come out of this mess to give peace a chance. For me, status of shaheed for people dying fighting this war is less important than saving innocent lives of those who are dying due to drones /military operations and being classified as collateral damage or dying in resulting terrorism.
PTI, JI and other anti-war parties should focus on their plan to block NATO supplies on 20th November and keep up their pressure for ending this war and drone strikes.
USAID fame Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) and Iranian poodles MWM joining hands against talks with Talibans. It gives some idea how things are going in the region especially Iraq and Afghanistan. Syria was just a trap set for rising Turkey and another way to exploit sectarianism in the region.
If Shias realize how harmful these Khomenists are for their interest then it can bring some chance of peace for them and others. If these corrupt Sunni Ittehad council guys start not to use sectarianism to gain monetarily or politically then they can do some good for others too.
Both are playing as puppets of USA/Iran and their slaves in army/agencies/politics to push Pakistan into more and more war mess.
Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) are no saints and have committed too many transgressions against non-combatant populations but they are the result of this mess. This phenomenon of terrorism cannot be dealt properly if we do not address the root cause of this mess. Root causes are Pakistan army’s role of a mercenary organization for their client USA against Afghanistan and Pakistani tribes, Pakistan’s soil being used for NATO supplies to strengthen the occupation, Pakistani bases being used to occupy a neighboring country (also for drones) and finally one of the main root cause is the support to these wars and wrong actions provided by sectarian and social class fascists sitting in army, politics, media and civil society.
People need to learn that senseless bombings and operations have created most of these militants in the first place and continuing with this bullshit will only create more terrorism. But how can someone convince those who are blinded by sectarianism or dollars?
Do the designers of this war have any favorite sects or social classes?
The designers of this wars sitting in Washington surely make it look like a war between sufi vs non sufi or shia/barelvi vs deobandi/ahl e hadith/wahabi sects or between liberals and conservatives or moderates and extremists or between other social class groupsbut in actual they don’t share even a little bit of sympathy for anyone.
All they know is to exploit fault lines which they are doing. i agree that IK seems to be the only major leader who has some sort of idea what is going on with this war or in the region.
The unfortunate part is that their dollar slaves in Pakistan are also toeing their line despite seeing all the destruction. Another dangerous element of this war is Khomenist’s direct and indirect support which is also not helping the cause. They think they can go on for long with their sectarian imperialism but in actual they are destroying the future of not only Sunnis or others they don’t like but most importantly they are harming the interests of people they claim to represent i.e Shias in the region.
Its time to start acting like thinking humans not some sheep or insects. We need to come out of this self-destructive mode.
Really disappointed with the killing of 81 innocent people in a suicide attack on a church in Peshawar.
I Strongly condemn the church attack. If I am in a place where I see the person who planned this attack and I have a gun in my hand then I will surely put all the bullets in his head. But I am also not mad enough or driven by social class or sectarian hatred that I will vent all my hatred towards tribal people and demand senseless military operations in tribal areas to hunt down “suspects”.
It looks interesting to see whenever there is a momentum of talks, incidents like attacks on minorities or on senior govt./military officers speed up and all pro-war lobbies and sectarian/social class fascists speed up their pro-war propaganda. It seems they are not interested in ending this mess but are more interested in fighting an imported war. They need to know that a war designed on sectarian and social class fascism cannot bring peace.
Military operations especially where aerial bombings and heaver artillery are involved are bound to result in loss of innocent civilians including children. This will eventually produce more hatred especially when these attacks are backed by sectarian and social class fascists in establishment, civil society, media and politics.
This is what is happening from 9-10 years. Its time to think for those who are living in war trauma for a long time and try to bring them towards normal life.
First step will be to come out of this war and stop drones by any means necessary including shooting them down.
Second step will be to start dialogues with tribal elders and groups who are willing to talk. Then with the help of these elders and groups try to bring others on table as well but if they show resistance then, with the help of tribal elders and groups who are in favor of talks, look for other means.
Similarly, its finally time to see which groups and individuals from so called settled areas side want Pakistan to remain in this war.
In my view elements who don’t want Pakistan to come out of this war from both militant’s side or from establishment/political parties side have same source of power. Militant groups which are not in any kind of mood for talks are mostly linked with India or Iranian/American backed northern alliance.
Similarly, Khomenists and American puppets are keeping up their pressure for more and more war. Their only apparent point of difference is in Syria and that to doesn’t seem to affect their collusion in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan.They are exploiting sufi/salafi , deobandi/barelvi, so called liberal/so called religious and other fault lines to forward their war agenda.
One can ask: Why Pakistan is being targeted? The answer to this will not be simple but to keep it simple, we can start with two issues:
Iran feels it as a competing port for its Chahbar port which Iran is building with the help of India to strengthen its hold over Central Asia. Americans are pissed off because Chinese companies are building the port with high Chinese stakes in the area.
It is not a secret how India and Americans hate Pakistani nukes. They have a interest in keeping Pakistan into this war so that resulting chaos will force Pakistan to give up its nukes. Iran always see Pakistani nukes as Sunni nukes and feel them as a hurdle for its future goals in middle east. It even snitched on Pakistan in 2003 when it helped USA to corner Pakistan on nuclear proliferation issue.
Its time for lazy heads in Pakistan to think actively. Need to come out of this war to get some chance for peace.
Recent reports of mass murder by Fattah al Sisi’s regime have exposed the hypocrisy of USA and its European allies for their commitment to democracy.USA and its allies in EU are still standing with the Egyptian dictator despite mass murders. No one expects any good from Saudi and UAE monarchy who have no regards for democracy, human rights and freedom. Situation in Egypt is becoming more like that of Syria where another dictator Bashar al Assad is killing people in hundreds with the support or Iran and Russia.
Its time for Pakistan, Egypt, Turkey,Syria and Central Asian countries to get their countries out of the influence of USA/Saudi Arabia who support mass murdering dictator in Egypt and Russia/Iran who support mass murdering dictator in Syria. Muslims have wasted a lot of time by taking sides in the affairs of these evil regimes in Iran, Saudi Arabia, USA and Russia.
Situations in Syria and Egypt should open up the eyes of freedom and justice loving people in Muslim world.
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.
I think it is clear that PTI can only make government in KPK. It will be a split mandate and in sha Allah PTI will not join any status-quo party for power.
Situation is not ideal but everything is not lost. The good thing will be that they can still show performance in KPK. They can:
a) Eliminate corruption in KPK
b) Raise strong voice against this war and drones by passing resolutions and active protests on the streets or even blocking supplies
c) Strength the system of justice in KPK
d) Conduct local bodies elections
e) Help promoting peace and local businesses to improve employment situation
f) Make it a good place to invest for private sector especially in hydel power, gem stones, engineering etc
g) Give incentives to the private sector to invest in research and development through universities
h) Give results in other key areas which are part of their manifesto
In National Assembly, they can make strong noise on policy issues related to local and international affairs.
