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.

Waziristan Peace March –> A great move by PTI

October 6, 2012 1 comment

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.

Another pseudo liberal method: Using sectarian violence in Pakistan issue to downplay Syrian and Burma situation.

Another pseudo liberal method: Using sectarian violence in Pakistan issue to downplay Syrian and Burma situation.
My view : Sectarian violence is a result of unjust policies and war crimes committed by sectarian and social class fascists sitting in so called Pak army and government. People who oppose this war, which has been given sectarian and social-class clash direction, are opposing this war do it for many reasons and one of the main reasons is that this war is promoting sectarian violence.

The people who use sectarian violence issue to undermine Syrian and Burma situation are mostly those who support this fake war on terror. In other words those who oppose this war on terror, Bashar al Assad in Syria and Burma Muslim massacre are those who oppose killings of innocent people whether in drones, military operations or resulting violence/suicide attacks. This policy of only opposing resulting violence and not drones/military operations/Burma killings/Bashar al Assad violence shows that these sectarian and social-class fascists don’t consider others as human beings and only support the human rights of those who they think are humans based on their sectarian and social-class prejudices.

 

We must come out of this war to control sectarian violence

The biggest contributors to the current sectarian violence mess from public and media side are those who forwarded ISI’s agenda of exploiting sufi/salafi, shia/sunni differences to bring war theater in Pakistan and justify invasion of FATA. For me unrelated or innocent people dying in military operations or resulting sectarianism are same and I condemn both. But my focus is more on the root cause which is this war and military operations. Now the policies are giving their fruits and people are whining over the results. Mentality like this from the decision makers to jump into the war and settle sectarian/social class scores with tribal and other area populations has brought us into the point that much of the war theater has moved from Afghanistan to Pakistan. Even current Zardari govt. through their scumbags like Faisal Reza Abidi or LUBP type cheap blogs are playing the same dirty sectarian games.

The problem with these scumbags and the likes sitting in the top decision making posts of Army and government is that their decision making bring those to firing lines who are not decision makers or hate mongers themselves but had few commonalities with them, which is a wrong thing in itself as you cannot put decision makers and those who are just supporters due to some prejudices or don’t support the wrong decisions but have some commonalities in beliefs or social classes in the same category. I have seen this type of bull shit on Karachi’s walls saying Mullah Umar ki aankh dajjal ki aankh hai or saying this war is against Yazeedis. Come on guys come out of these 1400 years old vague desert stories for which not much credible account is available or at least don’t mix it with decisions for today’s world.

People should know that if they support wrong principles then it will be just a matter of time when they will hurt them too. Way out of this mess is to come out of this war.

Injustice In The Age of Obama –> Cindy Sheehan, published in Aljazeera

November 15, 2010 1 comment

An interesting article of how lies are made and presented as truth. Our so called liberals should read this who out of their sectarian and social-class prejudice can’t think freely and justly.

———————————————————————————————————————

Excerpts from an article by Cindy Sheehan

published on AlJazeera English.

Source : http://freeaafia.org/

The treatment of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is symbolic in the minds of many Muslims. Her treatment has caused more damage to US-Muslim relations (particularly in Pakistan) than any ‘soft power’ state department program could undo

Since being the defendant in about six trials after I was arrested for protesting the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations, it’s my experience that the police lie. Period.

However the lies don’t stop at street law enforcement level. From lies about WMD and connections to “al Qaeda,” almost every institution of so-called authority – the Pentagon, State Department, CIA, FBI, all the way up to the Oval Office and back down – lie. Not white lies, but big, Mother of all BS (MOAB) lies that lead to the destruction of innocent lives. I.F Stone was most definitely on the ball when he proclaimed, “Governments lie”.

Having clarified that, I would now like to examine a case that should be enshrined in the travesty of the US Justice Hall of Shame.

In February of this year, Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani mother of three, was convicted in US Federal (kangaroo) Court of seven counts, including two counts of “attempted murder of an American.” On September 23, Judge Berman, who displayed an open bias against Dr. Siddiqui, sentenced her to 86 years in prison.

The tapestry of lies about Dr. Siddiqui – a cognitive neuroscientist, schooled at MIT and Brandeis – was woven during the Bush regime but fully maintained during her trial and sentencing this year by the Obama (in)Justice Department…
 

Tortured ‘truth’

There is some disputed “intelligence” that Aafia had married KSM’s nephew, a tenuous allegation at best, and even so, guilt by association has no place in the hallowed US legal system.

Following KSM’s torture-induced ‘insights’, Dr. Siddiqui was listed by Bush’s Justice Department as one of the seven most dangerous al-Qaeda operatives in the world. A mother of three equipped with a lethal ability to ‘thin-slice’ your cognitive personality in seconds. If alleged association and a healthy interest in neuro-psychology are the definitive hallmarks of a ‘terrorist operative,’ then Malcolm Gladwell better start making some phone calls to Crane, Poole and Schmidt.
 

A culture of falsehoods

In any case, in a bizarre scenario – to make a very long story short – Dr. Siddiqui and her three children disappeared for five years from 2003 to 2008, resurfacing in Ghazni, Afghanistan with her oldest child, a son who was then 11. She claimed that for the years she was missing, she was being held in various Pakistani and US prisons being tortured and repeatedly raped. Many prisoners, including Yvonne Ridley, maintain she was incarcerated in Bagram AFB and tortured for at least part of the five missing years.

After Dr. Siddiqui resurfaced, she was arrested and taken to an Afghan police station where four Americans – two military and two FBI agents – rushed to “question” her through interpreters. The FBI and military, claim that they were taken to a room that had a curtain at one end and that they did not know that Dr. Siddiqui was lying asleep on a bed at the other side of the curtain. As you read below it will become blatantly obvious that personnel involved from both institutions totally fabricated their stories.

This is the Americans’ version: They entered the room and one of the military dudes said he laid his weapon down (remember, they were there to interrogate one of the top most dangerous people in the world), and Siddiqui got up, grabbed the weapon, yelling obscenities and that she wanted to “kill Americans.” All 5’3″ of her raised the weapon to fire and she fired the rifle twice, missing everyone in the small room – in fact she even missed the walls, floor and ceiling since no bullets from the rifle were ever recovered.

Then one of the Americans shot her twice in the stomach “in self-defence.” It was shown at the trial that her fingerprints were not even on the weapon. The only bullets that were found that day were in Dr. Aafia’s body. How many stories of military cover-ups have we heard about since 9/11? I can think of two right away without even trying hard: Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch.

Hopeless injustice

Dr. Aafia’s side is this: After she was arrested, she was again beaten and she fell asleep on a bed when she heard talking in the room she was in so she got out of the bed and someone shouted: “Oh no, she’s loose!” Then she was shot – when she was wavering in and out of consciousness, she heard someone else say: “We could lose our jobs over this.”

Even with no evidence that she fired any weapon, she was convicted (the jury found no pre-meditation) by a jury and sentenced to the aforementioned 86 years.  It’s interesting that the Feds did not pursue “terrorist” charges against Dr. Siddiqui because they were aware that the only evidence that existed was tortured out of KSM – so they literally ganged up on her to press the assault and attempted murder charges.

Even if Dr. Siddiqui did shoot at the Americans, reflect on this. Say this case was being tried in Pakistan under similar circumstances for an American woman named Dr. Betty Brown who was captured and repeatedly tortured and raped by the ISI – here in the states that woman would be a hero if she shot at her captors – not demonized and taken away from her life and her children.

I believe Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is a political prisoner and now the political bogey-woman for two US regimes.

In Pakistan, the response to her verdict and sentencing brought the predictable mass protests … and calls for Pakistan to repatriate Dr. Siddiqui. They know who the real criminals are and who should be in prison for life! At present, Hilary’s state department harps on about ‘soft power’ and diplomacy, but what better way to quell US distrust in the Muslim world than to try such cases with due diligence and integrity.

In the US, not many people know about this case. Obviously many people were Hope-notized by the millions of dollars poured into the Obama PR machine – and believed when he said that his administration would be more transparent and lawful than the outlaws of the Bush era.

I guess they were mistaken.

Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Specialist Casey A. Sheehan, who was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004. Since then, she has been an activist for peace and human rights.

Independence Day, Freedom and Us

August 14, 2010 1 comment

The month of August is here with Independence Day of Pakistan being one of the main highlight of it. This year we are going to celebrate the 63rd year of Independence from centuries old British Rule.

Independence day is probably the most confusing day I consider as compared to rest of the days in our national calendar.

Though like many years it has come when we are going through “National Crises” and like always our nation will try to regain its “National Confidence” and “Nationalism” through national songs and flag hoisting ceremonies.But honestly telling these displays of pseudo-patriotism are now losing their meanings in front of me.

For me independence is not merely having a state with the right to have an identity card as citizen.But its about having the right to use your potential and getting results from it.Independence is about taking your own Economic and Political decisions yourself. Independence is about living with dignity and self respect.

On one hand we are busy in fighting a foreign war which is destroying our social fabric and on the other hand we are so Economically and Politically weak that we cannot take decision in our favor about it.

Even after suffering so much in the so called “War on Terror”, we are still blamed for exporting terror by our key allies like Britain. This shame wasn’t enough for our leaders that they decided to give a pleasure visit to the country which didn’t even give slightest of regards to thousands of life we gave for their war. This visit, even after so much humiliation, was so important for our President and our government that they even didn’t give small consideration about the losses our nation is suffering due to recent devastating floods.

If we become a bit more honest and bold about judging our situation then I am afraid we will not be able to find ourselves eligible of celebrating the independence day.

Our ancestors fought for freedom so that they can have a country where principles of justice and equality will prevail. If we look at our present condition it doesn’t show promise in that regard as well.

Our national agenda are hijacked by dictators,feudal and corrupt corporatist who enjoy total dominance and totalitarian control over the resources of our country. People are made enemies of each other by exploiting sectarian, ethnic and social class
diversity we have in our society and converting it into a clash. Legislation in made in such way that criminals, plunderers and incompetent people not only can reach to the highest forum of national policy making i.e. parliament but now they are given the right to select the judiciary.

Judicial institution is probably the first and in many ways also the last institution which gives a weak and poor citizen the chance to protect himself being victimized by the elite and powerful. Without an independent and powerful system of justice no citizen can think of freedom and no nation can reap the fruits of independence.

Though some promising situation is shown by media, some sections of civil society and higher judiciary but overall our situation is not improving and in fact getting worse day by day. Apart from leadership I will also blame our nation for this as their personal prejudices, short term greed and narrow vision has brought us to this level.

We are the ones who don’t find much moral courage to criticize and stop wrong and support the right cause as our own petty issues and prejudices come in our way. This approach of prejudice, greed and narrow mindedness has also become part of our national policy making which is evident in this so called “War on Terror”.

The situation is so bad now that the nation which, despite all its weaknesses, used to help each other in hour of crisis and need is now killing each other from Karachi to Khyber even during the worst disaster of our national history.

It is now a high time for us to reconsider our national agenda and come out of this pathetic hypocritical approach. We need to sincerely judge ourselves and our problems and fix them one by one in our collective and personal lives. For once we need to think like a real honest, just and freedom loving nation.

Investigative Report From Dunya TV On Karachi Blast And Riots

January 4, 2010 2 comments

An excellent investigative report by Dunya Today about Karachi Blast. I hope after these proofs this case will not be thrown in the dustbin of Waziristan or tribal areas like it is happening with Benazir case.

Below is Mustafa Kamal’s reaction to the investigation

We demand free and fair investigation and trial of the minds and hands behind this terrorism regardless of political, sectarian, ethnic and any other affiliation.

“O ye who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.” [An-Nisa 4:35]
