Congratulations Pakistan on a very successful display of solidarity and commitment for the cause of justice and freedom–>some personal experiences to share

Congratulations Pakistan for showing display of solidarity and commitment with the cause of justice and freedom and we specially congratulate the lawyers,students,civil society and also political workers who joined hands with each other under the leadership of Aitzaz Ahsan for the great cause.

I think PPP(specially Mr. 10% Zardari),Mush and company(MQM, Chaudharys of Gujrat),Dogar and company and PML with ANP should realize that they don’t have time to waste and they must have to act now in favor of the country and restore judiciary(with out any unconstitutional package) and get rid of that dictator Musharraf.

InshaAllah the success is near and Pakistan will experience the true justice and freedom.

Some personal experiences: I am very tired (I have arrived today at Karachi) so not in a position to write much but would like to share some personal experiences(In a random and brain storming way).

Lt Gen(R) Jamshaid Gulzar Kiyani exposes Musharraf’s evil actions.

 

In Dr. Shahid Masoods programme “Meray Mutabiq” on Geo TV, Lt Gen(R) Jamshaid Gulzar  Kiyani exposes Musharraf’s evil actions.

apart from exposing his 12 October 1999 actions and his other crimes , former core commander Rawalpindi also told the nation about the great crime which only a savage minded and a retarded person can do i.e. using chemical weapons(banned even for the use in full scale wars) against the innocent kids in Lal Masjid operation.

Below are the details of the interview.

RAWALPINDI: Lt Gen (retd) Jamshaid Gulzar Kiyani on Monday stressed the need for making an example of President Pervez Musharraf to block the emergence of future dictators in the country.

Talking to Dr Shahid Masood in the Geo TV programme Meray Mutabiq, he said General Musharraf had committed basic mistakes such as the Kargil debacle, surrender to the US threat of pushing Pakistan into the stone age and the Lal Masjid destruction.

He said no power could stay in the face of the power of the people. He said he had seen the period of Ayub Khan, who could not face the wrath of the people. When asked whether the Army was with Musharraf, he said the armymen would never say anything about it and such things were never discussed in the Army.

He ruled out the imposition of martial law, saying that the president could not use Article 58-2(b). Gen Gulzar said Musharraf’s departure from power was close at hand. He said the president should not have given in to the US threat in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. He said the Pakistan Army was the best professional Army in the world. He said Musharraf had options at that time and he should have held a referendum to ascertain the will of the people.

Gen Gulzar said the referendum Musharraf held for himself was a fake exercise as Gen Zia did the same during his rule. He said Musharraf was clearly told about this mistake and afterwards he accepted his mistake.

He said today everybody believed that Gen Musharraf was fighting the American war on the soil of Pakistan and “we are paying for that today.” departure from power was close at hand. He said the president should not have given in to US threat in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. He said the threat to push Pakistan into the stone age was delivered by the then secretary of state Colin Powel and not by the American president. He said the president arrested and handed over Pakistanis to the US. Where have these unknown people gone? he asked.

He asked what was the crime of Mullah Zaeef and as a diplomat did he deserve such insulting behaviour? He said the ISI was used to commit wrong acts. He said he was in the ISI and advised against such acts but his advice fell on deaf ears. As a result today Musharraf was the most unpopular president. If he had accepted the advice, he would have been the most successful president of Pakistan today.

He said suicide attacks that were beyond imagination before 9/11 are difficult to control now, he said. He said he was not a supporter of suicide attacks but these reflect an easy reaction that cannot be stopped by anyone.

He said there were suicide attacks one after the other in the wake of the Lal Masjid and the Jamia Hafsa operation. He said if there were foreign elements in Lal Masjid, where did they go? He said innocent students were targeted with phosphorus grenades, that he added come in the fold of chemical weapons. He said he had never seen such an act of tyranny. He said when a bullet crosses the body it is not a wrong use of power but that is a tyrannical act. It tantamounts to killing an ant with a hammer.

He said ex-servicemen should have come forward a long time ago but they have not been an organized body that could be activated on one call. About the economic situation, General Gulzar Kiyani termed the present period the worst when it was difficult for the poor to get even one meal.

When asked about his appointment and expulsion as Chairman Federal Public Service Commission, Gen Kiyani said the real differences started after the 9/11 episode. “After retiring from the Army on Oct 14, 2004, when I reminded General Saheb his commitment to doff his uniform during a meeting, he said that the nation needed him.”

He said it was a reaction to his policies that suicide attacks started in the country. He said force was used in South and North Waziristan and 80 students were killed in a Bajaur Madrassa in an American operation. What was the crime of these students, he asked.

He said he remained Chairman of the Public Service Commission for three years. At that time the prime minister was Jamali whose first demand was to give power of appointments in CBR and FIA to ministers. He said if this power was given to ministers they would have gotten their own way.

He said one of the two officers approved by former prime minister Shaukat Aziz faced a NAB corruption case while the other had no chance of promotion. “I requested them that this would cause great demoralisation among the bureaucracy. I humbly submitted to them that this was a wrong step but in a short period the chairman’s tenure was reduced from five to three years under the PCO to remove me.”

He expressed regret over the suicide attack outside the Danish embassy in Islamabad adding there was no conception of suicide bombings before 9/11. The policies of President Pervez Musharraf in the post-9/11 scenario led to suicide attacks in Pakistan.

Pulling the curtain off past events, Lt Gen (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani denied a hand in the removal of Nawaz’s government on October 12, 1999. “I was major general then and I was promoted on November 1, 1999. After that I took the responsibility of corps commander Rawalpindi and successfully held the post for two years.”

Commenting on the 9/11 events of 2001, he said undoubtedly a hell was unleashed on New York but he never reconciled with the practical course President Pervez Musharraf adopted after the incident.

To a question, he said no aspersion could be cast on the loyalty of the Army and so on the corps commander. A corps commander also remains loyal to the army chief. However, different views came up at the corps commanders meetings in the wake of 9/11. Big differences emerged then. When General (retd) Musharraf asked as to what were their views to the threats of pushing Pakistan into the stone age, a difference of opinion emerged in the views of the corps commanders. It was three to four days after 9/11. Some commanders openly told Chief Executive Pervez Musharraf that they had reservations. These pertained to an outright and open support to the US. They believed that the US should not be extended support blindly. The corps commander is a professional soldier and ignoring his advice leads to losses.

Regarding the 1971 war, he said he was on the eastern border but never became a prisoner of war. He said there is no doubt that excesses were committed against the people of Bengal. He held then General Yahya Khan responsible for the same. General Niazi totally failed in East Pakistan and his role was very embarrassing which is a matter of regret.

General (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani said according to his information Nawaz Sharif did not know anything about the Kargil episode. He was never thoroughly briefed on the same. He supported holding of a probe into the Kargil fiasco, adding factors behind the scene, about which people do not know, would also come into the limelight.

Asked what was his plan, General Kiyani said he had briefed Nawaz Sharif and told him that it was a very sensitive issue and he could not unveil all the details to him. He was only apprised of the ongoing situation. Nawaz time and again asked about the truth from senior officials including Sartaj Aziz who was the foreign minister. He also tried to persuade the chief of army staff. General Majid spoke in detail on the issue. General Mahmood was the corps commander then.

Kiyani said our Jawans (soldiers) bravely fought the Kargil War. I think they revived the memories of the 1965 war. Our officers fought more fiercely than in the 1965 War and repulsed enemy attacks time and again. Despite the fact that supplies were disrupted due to extreme cold, the Jawans continued the war. He repeated that arguments will come up when there will be a probe.

He termed Nawaz’s travel to the US a bid to save the prestige of the Pakistan Army. He said in the meeting of May 17 Nawaz gave a green signal to the operation. He assured conditional support to General Musharraf that the government would back the operation when he successfully moved forward. If unfortunately the same failed, he would not be in a position to support him (Musharraf). When the army was caught in an awkward situation, he again travelled to the US to save the symbol of the country, the Pakistan Army.

To a question about the use of nuclear weapons in the war, General Kiyani said the war could have not been kept limited to the Kargil sector or a particular front particularly when the two countries possessed nuclear weapons.

Referring to the book authored by General Musharraf, Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani said whatever has been written there is against logic. If you catch your enemy by the jugular vein he would react with full force. If you cut enemy supply lines, the only option for him will be to ensure supplies by air. That situation the Indian Army was unlikely to confront and it had to come up to the occasion. It is against wisdom that you dictate to the enemy to keep the war limited to a certain front. After that Nawaz went to the United States. But an attempt was made to create the impression in the print media that Nawaz Sharif was at fault to surrender there. He said this impression was created by General Pervez Musharraf which was totally wrong.

12 May Black Day—>The day to remember the spirits of those who died for the cause of justice in Pakistan

 

On 12 May 2007 ,Pakistan saw one of the most brutal government sponsored terrorism on the streets of Karachi.

The day on which the Chief Justice of Pakistan (The genuine one not the false one like dogar) Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary arrived in Karachi to address the Karachi Bar but was barred to go along with his lawyers to go outside the Karachi airport.

Outside the airport government set a stage to terrorise the civil society,lawyers,political workers and everyone who wanted to welcome the true CJ of Pakistan by invoking a massacre on the roads and streets of Karachi with the help of then the ruling parties in Sind.

more than 40 people died on that day of terror and brutality.

May Allah bless those souls and bless this country.

 

May 12 victim vows to ‘sacrifice more’ for CJP Chaudhry
THE NEWS

Karachi

Twenty-seven-year-old Mohammad Kamil spends day and night on a charpoy for the pre-PCO Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, “because he is the only person who could provide justice,” Kamil said. He is wheelchair-bound, and said that if he were able to walk again, he would sacrifice more for the CJP — someone he has never met.

Kamil was attacked by armed men inside a mosque in the Malir Halt near the Ranger’s office on May 12, 2007. He was lying there for around four hours before being taken for treatment. He said around 250 people, including six women, had taken shelter inside the mosque and locked its door.

A worker of the Awami National Party (ANP) said he along with his friend, Ishaq, had arrived there at around 11:30am when several gunmen carrying grenades and G-3 rifle attacked them. “Ishaq was hit on his head and died there instantly,” he said, adding that he ran towards the mosque but he was hit on the back, resulting in critical injuries.

Kamil, a factory worker, is the father of two children. He said he used to earn Rs6,000 (including Rs2,000 as overtime) at the factory. “Now I am penniless,” he said. His son, aged six years, had abandoned studies at school because of lack of fee and he got him admitted in a Madressa.

He remained hospitalised for 22 days and added that the party helped him for treatment by giving him Rs75, 000.

He said now a doctor in Nazimabad demanded over Rs4m for his treatment. Kamil said his uncle approached the doctor as to whether his nephew would be able to walk after treatment. The doctor replied that he could not give guarantee in this regard. “My uncle suggested to me that it would not be advisable for spending a huge amount of money on treatment without any assurance of recovery,” Kamil said, adding that since then he was relying on God to help him. He said the government had not provided him any promised compensation.

Another wounded, Ahmed, 18, recalled that a “blast” had injured him near the Malir Halt. “I was being taken in an ambulance when gunmen attacked it,” he said. They attacked the ambulance driver on the head and he died. “They got hold of us and beat us for four hours,” he said. “When we became unconscious, they left us assuming that we were dead,” Ahmed said. He also complained lack of compensation.

But he said a man, Noor Hussain, who was injured along with him had been given Rs125,000 by the government. —IA

Zardari makes fun of ‘deadline’ on judges’ return

Thursday, April 24, 2008
By Ansar Abbasi
ISLAMABAD: Both Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif have agreed to delay their immediate London visits to get the judges’ restoration issue resolved before things really get out of their control, thus, risking the collapse of the coalition.

But the real catch is Nawaz Sharif wants to do the job before April 30 whereas Asif Ali Zardari is non-committal on this deadline. Reliable sources confided to The News that in their closed-door meeting on Tuesday, Nawaz unequivocally told Zardari that on the issue of the judges’ restoration, the PML-N simply could not afford to go beyond April 30 as per the Murree Declaration. However, the PPP co-chairperson jokingly responded that he did not have faith in the TV’s (Geo) countdown. He, however, did not explain what he meant by this and if he really found himself restricted to act meaningfully before April 30.

Nawaz, whose wife Kulsoom has already flown to London for surgery, told Zardari that he was postponing his London visit to ensure that the judges were restored. In response, Zardari told his leading coalition partner that he too had to go to London to meet Altaf Hussain but would delay his visit to reciprocate Nawaz’s gesture.

While things are shown to the media as being simple, there are still tricky issues that are required to be sorted out by a committee comprising representatives of both the parties and lawyers fraternity. Irrespective of what has been announced in the joint press conference, the two leaders decided to refer the resolution issue to the committee to deliberate on all aspects of the judges’ restoration. However, what was announced in the press conference was the constitution of the committee for the constitutional package.

After the top leaders’ meeting, the two sides are now in contact with the PML-N, showing urgency for the early constitution of the proposed committee so that the resolution could be moved before April 30th.

Sources in the PPP said that Zardari seeks some sort of agreement regarding the constitutional package from the PML-N without formally linking it to the resolution and before the tabling of the resolution and the restoration of the judges. It is the same package through which the PPP desires to reduce deposed chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s tenure, the fact that the party has denied categorically publicly. The public statements and media announcement of these parties are far different from what is happening behind the scene and in their closed-door meetings.

The PPP is enthusiastic about the constitutional package that would include fixing the tenure of the Supreme Court and High Court chief justices but would actually mean to target deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

The party sources said that the PPP leadership was not comfortable with Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and desired to continue with the incumbent Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar. There are fears being expressed by some PPP sources that Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, being unpredictable, was capable of opening the NRO issue. The NRO, which is considered as the most-controversial legislation in the history of Pakistan for offering amnesty to a selected few, has greatly benefited Asif Ali Zardari, who was facing a number of corruption cases both within and outside the country.

Regarding the constitutional package, the PML-N is of the view that such a package could be discussed and passed from parliament as well if only a consensus is developed between the coalition partners over the amendments proposed. The PML-N sources clearly say that they do not want even any subtle link between the constitutional package and the resolution for the restoration of the deposed judges.

Most of the media persons who attended the joint press conference of Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif were not satisfied with the answers of the two leaders, particularly that of the PPP co-chairman, yet both sides were hopeful that things, on the issue of judges’ restoration, would unfold as per the expectations of the people.

Except for one PML-N leader who believes that the judges’ resolution might be moved the next month after the lapse of the agreed deadline, others in the party are confident that the objective would be achieved before April 30.
