Switch to any news channel of Pakistan the major issue you will find for discussion is 1992 military operation in Karachi which MQM claims was against MQM and army/PML-N claims was against the miscreants and robbers and all this was started by one man Brigadier (R) Imtiaz who is appearing on every channel opening a Pandora box of Pakistan’s political history.
It is a thing to be asked with NRO beneficiary Brigadier (R) Imtiaz that what and who has provoked him to reveal all the things after 17 years.
Apart from the blame game and media spice the timing is really important.
National media which was discussing issues of :
1 ) Pervaiz Musharraf trial under Article 6 of high treason.
2 ) NRO case.
3 ) USA embassy or I should say military fortress being built in Pakistan.
4 ) Corruption of Zardari government and destruction of national institutions.
5 ) Sugar scandal.
6 ) Electricity crisis and rental power issues.
7 ) 12 May 2007 killings in Karachi.
8 ) Benazir Bhutto murder and UN investigation.
is now wasting their time in discussion the issue which should have been settled in court by the politicians specially MQM as it claims to be the victim party.
Also we need to look what else has happened during this time:
1 ) Northern areas are given the provincial status which has really damaged the Kashmir cause. Yasin Malik of JKLF has shown his reservations on this as well.
2 ) Cabinet has approved the Rental power project which is a straight 200 bn Rs corruption scandal.
3 ) Dogar is back with challenging the 31st July 2009 historical decision of Supreme Court of Pakistan.
4 ) Government has stopped the actions against those who created the sugar crisis in the country.
Now the question comes who are the prime beneficiaries :
1 ) Pervaiz Musharraf as his case is now gone at the back on media thanks to Brig. (R) Imtiaz.
2 ) Asif Zardari as Minus one is also now gone at the back on media.
3 ) MQM and Altaf as they have again proved themselves as an asset for establishment,Musharraf and Zardari apart from other political gains they have got.
I hope the sanity will prevail and people will understand the game the likes of Zardari,Musharraf,Kiyani and team are playing.
