Quetta and Swat Blasts–> Need to come out of this mess or war

Its really sad to see hundreds of people facing purposeless deaths and its now a high time for people to see what these imported war policies, corrupt ruling elite and years of sectarian/social-class hatred has given us. We are in a self-destructing mode and we need to come out of it now.

Baluchistan govt. and assembly is a useless bunch of morons who only know how to grab more money and power. Governor has accepted the failure and there is no reason to keep them on their jobs. I am strongly against military intervention but I fully agree with the demand to remove Baluchistan government. They don’t represent people of Baluchistan at all. Dozens of people have lost their lives and Raisani has no serious intention of accepting the responsibility. Not only Raisani but DG FC and Army commanders in the province who are responsible of destroying peace in Baluchistan should be made accountable for the situation.

And finally for those who supported this system and are still supporting it: Next time when you support Army, PPP,PML,MQM,ANP,JUI and other pro-war groups and lobbies, don’t forget the scenes of miseries, deaths, poverty and hopelessness across the whole country.

Propaganda against Malala Yousafzai to be a foreign agent

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.

Swat and Extremism

Swat is a good example to see how extremism develops. In 2006 I went to the area with my friends. We offered prayers in mosque (belonging to Jud or Fazlullah). We had people from different sects like Shia, Sunni or non-taqleedis but no one in the mosque bothered to question our different ways of praying and everyone was normal about it.

Similarly there were tourists with different social-class backgrounds and dressed up like the way they do in Karachi, Islamabad etc and no one bothered to question their dresses. There were girls school in the area and no one bothered to blow them up. Things started to go bad in the area when Army demolished the local structure which created vacuum for these groups to take over and especially when Lal-Masjid operation was conducted (The operation itself was sectarian and social-class fascism backed) , it gave a message to the people that there ways are in danger now and so they went on to the path of extremism. Its very easy for us to consider others as evil aliens and point fingers at them but to resolve a problem, an honest analysis is required to see where it all started and where the root cause lies.

Swat, Tribal areas etc were promised that their autonomy will remain in tact if they join Pakistan but Army on various occasions from 60s violated these agreements and started to meddle in there affairs especially in Musharraf’s time they deliberately targeted their religious schools and institutions. It seems that army used this war not only to bag dollars from Americans but also to pursue their old goal of invading these tribal areas because they seem to love only that Pakistan which is under their boots otherwise they will do another Bangladesh with that part of the country like they are also doing with Baluchistan.

People are again chanting slogans for more War in North Waziristan especially after Malala Yousafzai attack. They should ask their self about the goals they have achieved after decades of military operations in FATA, Baluchistan and Swat. These operations have resulted in more extremism and more terrorism, and they are not going to give different results in the future except things will go worse.

Malala Yousafzai injured in attack–> Sad news from Swat

Just heard a sad news from Swat. Malala Yousafzai, the teenage kid who got national peace prize got seriously injured in a shooting attack. This is sad, really bad and cowardly whoever has done this. It is also bad by the government to use this kid as a symbolic person against militants and expose her to such danger. It is ridiculous that first they used her for political gains in the war and then left her without adequate security. Not only the attackers but the people responsible for her security and exposing her to such danger should be made accountable for this.

The way government and some NGOs used Malala as a symbolic warrior is similar to child soldiers used by African war lords to fight their dirty wars.

May Allah give her health.

Flogging Video of Swat was Fake–>This whole War on Terror is fake

It has now been reported through media and reports are also with the government that the flogging video which provided the justification of indiscriminate bombings and extra-judicial killings in Swat was fake.People are blaming NGOs but we need to know all this is not possible without the support of government agencies. In fact his whole war on terror is fake. This weapon-blood-dollar game is fake, they are playing with our fears, cahsing our prejudices and social class differences to control our lives.

Army and so called liberals(in fact they are real fascists) don’t want to end this war because of their temporary benefits and satisfaction of their prejudices. They don’t realize or don’t want to realize that this game is setting some real wrong principles which can dangerous for them.
If indiscriminate bombings are right of tribal people then how can we protest if someone does the same on our so called civil society. Its an issue of setting wrong principles.

We need to come out of thie war against humanity,peace and justice wrongly named war against terror. It is destroying our country and social fabric, we need to think above our prejudices and short term benefits.

PESHAWAR: A resident of Swat, who claims to have prepared the fake video of flogging of a girl in Swat, has termed it drama and revealed that he received Rs0.5 million for doing so before the launch of military operation ‘Rah-e-Rast’.

Before the operation ‘Rah-e-Rast’, an NGO financed preparation of fake video of flogging in which they portrayed the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) members flogging a woman. The provincial government and Malakand Commissioner Syed Muhammad Javed ordered investigations and sought report from the authorities concerned.

After the successful operation in Malakand division, the law-enforcement agencies had arrested the children who were present in the video while a resident of Swat was apprehended by Kohat administration. The children and the arrested man revealed that the video was fake and said that it was made on the demand of Islamabad-based NGO which provided him Rs0.5 million.

Sources revealed that woman who was flogged in the video was also arrested and she revealed that she had received Rs0.1 million while Rs50,000 were given to each child. Sources said that the NGO produced the video to defame the country’s integrity and respect.

Sources stated that the law-enforcement agencies dispatched the report about the arrests of the culprits and proposed action against the NGO. They also said that the security agencies also apprehended the TTP workers who flogged the people.

PTI seeks end to military operations.PTI would observe October 9 as Baluchistan day–>The News

LAHORE

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has reiterated his demand to stop military operation in turbulent areas, saying issues can better be solved through dialogue.

Addressing workers’ convention on Saturday, Imran announced that the party would observe October 9 as Balochistan Day and he would visit the province on October 10 to express solidarity with Baloch people.

The PTI chief condemned torture on innocent civilians as depicted by a recently-released video. He said it would really be injustice with Army if we didn’t point fingers over this sad incident. He demanded Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Pervaiz Kiyani try soldiers involved in torture of citizens.

Calling for the need to end military operations in Swat and Malakand, he said: “We stood by our Army and completely supported it but we opposed the use of force”. He said justice was the right of every Pakistani citizen and this issue must be resolved through dialogue rather then waging a war.

Expressing solidarity with the people of Balochistan, Imran said the PTI would observe October 9 as Balochistan Day to express solidarity with Baloch people. He said cruelty could never be justified whether it was done by Taliban or government. He said he would himself visit Balochistan on October 10 and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf would continue to oppose injustice done to the people of the country.

He said the PTI was becoming a vibrant political force and he envisaged a youth revolution in coming years.

He said the PTI was no more a silent political party and it was popular among expatriate Pakistanis as well.

He said workers had to play their role in strengthening the PTI while showing better performance and improving party structure. He said the party would emerge as the largest political party due to untiring effort of its workers.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf leaders, including Ahsan Rasheed, Mian Mehmood ul Rasheed, Admiral (retd) Javed Iqbal, Raja Javed Mujtaba, Asif Khan, Umer Sarfaraz Cheema and others also spoke on the occasion.
