Syrians are suffering from the hands of both Pro-Assad camps and ISIS.

The process of destabilization in the middle east region which started with 2003 invasion of Iraq is now taking more deadly turns. Aleppo and other Syrian cities are facing genocides of people from pro-Assad forces backed by Russia and the Khomenist regime in Iran, and also from the hands of ISIS.

The countries which started this war mess in the middle east especially US, UK and the countries who supported them are not even accepting refugees.

It is the prime responsibility of OIC countries especially bigger countries like Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey etc. to stand up and start a peace process in the region. At the moment USA, Russia and Iran are playing their super power game in Syria at the cost of innocent lives.

Saudi Arabia and other GCC cannot be trusted with any peace process either as they are playing their own power games at the cost of human lives in Yemen.

People around the world who believe in justice and humanity should raise their voice on the issues.

If the ongoing genocide in Syria doesn’t end then I am afraid that it will create more sectarian hate based wars in the region.

I hope some sense will prevail and someday in-sha-Allah we will see peace in the region.

Disappointments with my friends

I really hate myself while writing this but need to write it to give an honest view point.

I am really disappointed with almost all of my Shia friends who support this war. I thought there must be some good significant number of Shias in Pakistan who don’t blindly toe the line of that Jerk Khemenei or Seestani but here it seems its not the case and almost all are determined to push not only their selves in this more war mess and resulting terrorism but also others too. Almost all my Shia friends cannot see the fact they are being used as a fuel for this war by Pakistani and other pro-war establishments including their beloved Khomenist regime in Iran.

I also criticize sunni or deobandi or ahl-e-hadith or other sects and social classes for the hate based crap some of their leaders or other people do (LeJ or ST or Mumtaz Qadri or Malik Ishaq types) but a clear thing which disappoints me is that others have broad range of views and diversity at extremes (almost all against innocent killings except few mad people) but for my almost all Shia friends it looks that they are toeing some kind of deep rooted hate based agenda against others with no room for reconciliation.

They need to know no anti-war on terror person supports suicide attacks on Hazara or on other Shia communities but what I have seen is that almost all (not all) of my Shia friends feel really happy when they know about deaths of people including children from other sects in tribal areas, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan or any where else. Even in Pakistan, they don’t really sympathize with anyone else but merely use one majority sect like Barelvi against the others like Deobandi or Ahl-e-Hadith. The trend is not just in religious maniacs but also evident in so called liberal or moderates.

I have always criticized army for this war mess but those who think they are being victimized should also see where they are going or what they are becoming in blind hatred.

They are trying to eliminate any space for those who want peaceful resolution of this war issue as probably it doesn’t fit into their hate based agenda to settle some centuries old good for nothing historical issues. Anti-war on terror people always condemn LeJ or other groups but unfortunately my Shia friends almost never condemn aerial bombings or military’s use of heavy conventional or even chemical weapons against other sects which is a crime even in worldly laws.

I don’t have any sympathies now for those who want innocent killings on both sides to satisfy their hatred for other sects and social classes. my only concern is those unrelated (who do not support this war or resulting terrorism) people who die as collateral damage but unfortunately there is no way to discriminate one from the other in aerial or suicide bombings which Shia groups want when they support this war.

May the wrath of Allah be on those from both sides of the conflict (Army, TTP, MWM,LeJ,SUC,SIC, PPP, ST,PMLN,MQM or others) who support these mass murders either through aerial/drone/military bombings or through suicide attacks.

Even India never does aerial bombings (drone or jet) on civilian populated areas despite almost 2 dozens of insurgencies.

I pray for the hardest wrath of Allah on those who consider innocent dead kids as an unavoidable or tolerable or necessary collateral damage.

I still pray for the blind followers of this corrupt system to get on the path of justice and peace but it seems we are going for complete self-destruction.

If the hatred is about religion or sects then at least while supporting aerial bombings, we should remember what the holy book says:

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]

Options other than failed war on terror in Pakistan

Fake liberals (In actual sectarian and social class fascists) and troop worshipers often say that there are no other options than war. They forget the fact that their decade old war is the main reason behind the formation of TTP type groups which were not there before this war.

There are still many options other than war like:

a) First taking back bases from USA and come out of this war.

b) Take tribes and groups who are willing for talks on board (after the main motivation of fighting ends due to Pakistan’s coming out of this war)

c) After tribes and groups who are willing to talk come on board for peace then deal with the groups who are not willing to talk after looking into their individual motivations.

d) Once it is established that a group has some criminal or sectarian agenda and they are not willing for peace then force is the right option but not like aerial bombings or other methods where civilians become collateral damage. War crimes are needed to be avoided for sure and tribes should be taken into confidence before any activity like targeted action.

e) People like Musharraf should be brought to justice for putting Pakistan into this mess and most importantly for using sectarian and social class fault lines to forward war agenda and strengthen his rule.

f) Musharraf gang still supporting his policies from within establishment should be removed.

g) We also need to see which groups from settled areas side or from government or politics or even media are determined to push Pakistan into more war mess for their sectarian or social class interests or for the interests of their pay masters.

h) A truth and reconciliation process should take place as a lot of hatred is there on both sides against each due to aerial bombings, drones, suicide attacks, missing persons or other transgressions from both sides.

Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline, sectarianism and conflict of interests

I am in favor of allowing Iran to sell its gas or oil or anything freely in Pakistan to private sector without considering USA but strongly oppose this pipeline project which makes govt. to buy gas from tax payer’s money at 3.5+ times higher (from an average 3.5 $/MMBTU to 13$/MMBTU) rate than they buy today. It seems almost all political parties are afraid to take a stand on this and calling it a good project because of the religious black mailing Iranian sponsored mullahs and their followers do (not all Shias but only those who do it and they include Sunni groups as well).

Interesting to see that after a nice photo session with Khemenei and Ahmedinejad, MWM is also not putting any pressure on Zardari government like they were doing before. It seems establishment or at least those who may have got heavy kickbacks for this project have a boogeyman in the form of LeJ which they used to mobilize Shia population to pressurize political parties and civil society so that they will digest this deal in a hope of sectarian harmony. I have sympathies with those who died in this dirty game but people also need to see who is getting benefits from this game.

Pakistan is going all the way to risk sanctions but Iran is not giving any concessions on oil prices. Zardari government deliberately made sure that fuel mix for Pakistan don’t shift to a much cheaper option like coal and also Iran successfully made sure that Pakistan don’t get direct access to Central Asia gas. Now Iran is buying cheap gas from Turkmenistan and selling expensive gas to Pakistan.

Iran only supports those shias who kneel down to Khomenist regime in Iran otherwise it treats them with same carrot and stick policy which it exercises with Azerbaijan. Iran tried to play Shia card to create tension between Turkey-KSA and Azerbaijan and after failing in that it started to develop ties with Armenia which is the arch enemy of Azerbaijan (Turkey, KSA support Azerbaijan in territorial conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia). Some reports even say that Iran supported Armenian militants in Karabakh war.

We also need to see who should hold high offices in the country to ensure that interests of Pakistan and its people are protected. They have banned the people with dual nationality to take part in elections or to hold high offices of responsibility. But what about those who have their spiritual-political or religious-political affiliations outside Pakistan?

Being a Sunni, Shia, Deobandi, Wahabi, Barelvi etc is another thing but recognizing authority of Waliat e Faqih or Amir ul Momnin position of Mullah Umar or Seestani or any other mullah or sufi which creates a conflict of interest between constitutional duties and these affiliations should be checked as well. Constitution says sovereignty belongs to Allah and talks about Quran and Sunnah not Mullah,Ayatollah, Sufi or some cultism thing.

We need to see whose wars we are fighting? or when we will stop presenting our people as fuel for these useless wars and conflicts serving the interests of ruling elite and their foreign masters?

Sectarianism, War, Gun Control and Freedom

We have recently seen some of the deadliest terrorist attacks on Hazara community, religious leaders of both Shia and Sunni sects, mafia wars in Karachi and resulting terrorism. It is interesting to see that whenever there is a momentum in support of peace dialogue these things pick up their pace as if someone is not satisfied with the idea of peace.

We need to see who is benefiting from this war?

It seems establishment and their NRO don’t like the idea of peace so they will do anything to use any event for an excuse to continue this war mess. PPP has launched Shehla Reza and Faisal Raza Abidi again to play sectarian card, Zardari had a nice photo session with Khemenei and MQM is again playing similar cards. Now its time for people of Pakistan including Shias to think if they again want to fall for these pro-war and pro-status quo groups and present themselves as a fuel for this war?

Despite corruption in 90s, it was not that bad and lives were better and safer but now its a mess out there in our cities. We need to come out of this mess and for this first we need to come out of this war and then isolate those who are benefiting from this war. Without cooling down the fire in FATA, Balochistan etc we cannot expect peace in the country.

There are other factors than this war or sectarianism which are playing their role. It seems Abbas town blast has more to do with other things than sectarianism. What many are not highlighting is that almost half were Sunnis and the area is not just full of “Shia” flats but they have “Sunni” flats too (probably in more numbers). It can well be another land mafia or other mafia or political thing which is being portrayed by MQM,PPP,ANP and other pro-war scum as sectarian or ethnic violence. All these parties have militant wings with full capability of carrying out such activity. We never had a proper inquiry about 2005 Nishtar Park bombings or 2010 Ashura Blast and resulting riots (it seems the riot time was ready for such blast).

Also, some people are demanding gun ban for people. For them I can only say that if you can’t understand that its already very hard for a common person to get a weapons license in Karachi whereas a criminal doesn’t care about these licenses and laws. Its time to demand the lifting of all kinds of bans and restrictions on heavy weapons as these restrictions are only making a common person defenseless against these criminal gangs. Self-defense or even personal revenge is a basic human right as long as it is not misused to harm unrelated people.

Its time we  should stand up for our freedom against the powers of tyranny. The least we can do in this regard is not to support tyrants and their unjust actions.
