Reports of threat to Imran Khan: It seems establishment and their foreign masters are planning another Benazir type thing
Threat to IK from TTP, according to National Crisis Management Cell: Well it seems agencies are planning another Benazir type drama and inshaAllah they will fail. Real threat to IK or any good Pakistani is from pro-war sectarian fascist scum sitting in security agencies who support evil ass hats like Zaid Hamid, TuQ etc. Insha Allah their plans will fail as Allah is the best of planners not them.
It seems establishment and their foreign masters are planning another Benazir type thing. These forces first tried to launch Tahir ul Qadri to create disturbance before election and failing with that they re-launched Musharraf. Musharraf is facing courts now and so this also doesn’t seem to be a feasible option. Justice and freedom loving people of Pakistan should remain alert for anything like this and Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf should arrange adequate measures for Imran Khan’s security.
If army and government are sincere in organizing fair and free elections then they must take care of the Zaid Hamid gang and old Musharraf gang sitting in security agencies. It seems Musharraf gang in establishment needs a real huge chaos to distract Pakistan from Artchle 6, lal masjid, bugti etc cases and they think by doing some evil act against Imran Khan (May Allah protect IK and his team), they can achieve their goals.
If something like this happens (May Allah destroy their plans) then justice and freedom loving people should march towards GHQ and this time leave no stone unthrown.
May Allah protect Imran Khan and destroy those who are doing these insane activities. May Allah destroy sectarian and social class fascists sitting in establishment and planning these dirty games.
I disagree with the way fake liberals,BBC and army used Malala Yousafzai as a symbolic warrior and put her life in danger.
But I also very strongly disagree with some of the pics circulating around social media against the poor kid. For me she is a poor innocent victim first used by pro-war fascists to forward their war agenda, then left without security to put her life in danger, now these fake liberals are cashing an attack on her to justify mass murder of hundreds like her in military operations and now some idiots are circulating some pics to prove her as an American agent.
These people on both sides need to know that she neither had the capacity to be a symbolic warrior or leader against militancy nor she had the capacity to be an agent. She is just a 14 year old kid who is in some unfortunate circumstances due to her opportunists parents, social-class fascist media and pro-war lobbies.
I think its a real good step towards coming out of this war. This war has taken every piece of dignity and pride from many people who have any sense of justice, freedom and respect for human rights. This was never our war like that so called cold war thing was not ours. But in both cases Pakistan’s leadership presented itself as mercenaries for other countries and as a result Pakistan and its people faced worst situations of their history. Many people who wouldn’t ve normally thought about leaving the country were made to leave the country not because of the hardships but because of the shame and hopelessness of not being able to stop it. I really feel bad when so called “our” army bombs villages just because they have to please their imperialist master or some idiot in GHQ thinks that violating agreements with tribes will achieve some geo-strategic goals.
For once, true liberals and people who believe in freedom, justice and self-respect should come out against these violations of human rights and this whole damn war. Pakistan was doing great in first 2-3 decades before it fully committed to the cause of serving imperialism and its military junta started to serve as mercenaries for others. Industries, Universities etc all were in good shape and in fact before this current war 90s wasn’t even that bad despite corruption. But this war has broken the backbone of the country and now even thinking about hope seems to be a delusion.
Only ignorant people or people with deep rooted sectarian and social class prejudices will oppose this peace march towards Waziristan. People who are doing this march for peace and justice should continue with their great work and ignore these sectarian and social class fascists (or fake liberals) who have put us in this mess of war. Tribal areas became part of Pakistan through some agreements and it was Pakistan Army which violated these agreements. Technically tribal people have full right to demand freedom but at least they have not yet gone for this option.
I pray for the safety and success for the participants of this Peace March and inshaAllah it will be a great success.
To all Pakistanis : Happy illusion of independence day!
May Allah give us the true day of independence with sense of justice and respect for humanity beyond the social-class, sectarian, ethnic and other prejudices.
It seems that 65 years ago we had a brief moment of truth and triumph which lost after few more moments of confusion. Pakistan changed its masters from British Raj to other powers of imperialism which were also allies of British Raj. Military and Feudal ruling elite played their usual role of proxy rulers which they were playing in British Raj days with support from sometimes so-called liberals (in fact sectarian and social-class fascists) and sometimes through theocratic mindsets (actually exploiters of religious beliefs for political and financial gains). Pakistani ruling elite especially military establishment played the role of mercenaries for foreign powers, fighting their wars and as a result giving heavy losses to the country. Now we are in a mess of fake war on terror meant to fulfill the lust of money and sectarian/social-class prejudices of few in ruling elite but taking the whole country into a self-destructive mode. Even losing half the country after almost only two and a half decades, Pakistani establishment didn’t learn its lessons and nothing has ever fulfilled their greed.
65 years of illusion, a long time to live a lie. Its time to free our minds and set course for a new frontier of freedom and prosperity with incorruptible sense of justice and respect for humanity. We may not achieve this as humans but certainly we can give it a try.
People in their ignorance demand PTA and PEMRA to exercise ban on unwanted or inappropriate content but these people don’t know or don’t want to know that this paves way for their unwanted control on the media and freedom of expression. They are testing it on Twitter today. If you think some channel is showing something inappropriate then don’t watch it or do protest against it or file a law suit instead of relying on PEMRA and if you think some website content is in appropriate then don’t visit the link or pay some hacker to hack it instead of relying on PTA. PTA and PEMRA are a tool of state totalitarianism.
Today PTA has blocked twitter in Pakistan and it seems they are planning for something worst. It seems state terrorists are afraid that like in Arab spring people will use social media to support a movement of change which is evident in future.
Recent government decision has an interesting timing. Just as when momentum has started to build-up against the decision of imperialist pet Pakistani government and military to restore NATO supply, they blocked twitter to slow down the momentum. This is how any evil government works after their evil actions. They think by suppressing free speech, they can suppress free thought.
We don’t PTA or PEMRA type institutions in Pakistan.
I came across with points on Theocracy, Liberty and Secularism in relationship with Islamic Social Justice and Concept of State in Islam.
For Islamic societies many wrongly contest that Islam and Islamic social justice require strong state involvement, mostly who are against it spread it but who are in favor have also toed this line without using their brain.
Their assumptions are not based on Quranic beliefs (as far as i understood one may differ).
If we try to understand it we see:
1 ) Equality of all humans is an essential point.There is no concept of sovereign immunity for any individual or group or institution.
2 ) Economy is based on real production and services not on fictitious interest base.
3 ) Social justice means equal social opportunities to grow means no exclusive rights
for any particular class to control the resources.
4 ) State is their not to control the resources but its role is merely to make sure no individual or group takes the control of resources made available by Allah to all.
5 ) Zakat or the minimal taxes are based on extra yearly savings or use of collective natural resources not on Income or Intellectual property. Though one may contest the prohibition is there or not but certainly the concept is not there at all of tax on income.
6 ) Family laws or society laws are only for Muslims who voluntarily accept the system based on Quran or Islam itself . Even in these cases the role is not to regulate to the micro-level or takeaway freedom but it is to ensure that the freedom of one doesn’t become a nightmare for others and doesn’t create social damages to society.
7 ) No force or compulsion on non-Muslims to follow it. Unlike the hypocrite secular govts. which make centralized laws force all the communities and followers of religious beliefs to follow it.
8 ) The dealing with other religions and societies are done through social agreements and
voluntary inclusion in society.
Maid tortured to death by lawyer–>Laws and regulations needed to be implemented for forced bonded labour
According to media reports a Lahore based lawyer Naeem who lives in DHA lahore tortured her 12 years old maid to death.
Also there are reports that the girl was sent by his parents through an agent to do work at the lawyer’s house and was forced to live here as it was a day-night duty with no time limit.
First of all the lawyer needs to be punished and put to the system of justice because of his horrible crime.
Secondly her parents and the agents are needed to be held accountable for selling the girl for bonded labour.
Third we need to review our socio-economic structure and the things which lead to such crimes.
