Imran Khan interview with Jasmeen Manzoor; Some real disappointments.

Its not a secret that I have been supporting Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) and Imran Khan for a long time. I supported them because they were bold in their opposition of General (R) Musharraf and his dictatorship. They were bold against his war on terror policies, attack on judiciary, attack on media, war crimes and violations of human rights.

However, the recent troop worship mindset or I should say surrender in front of troop worship mindset by PTI and IK is really disappointing for me.

The current post is mostly a series of comments on IK’s recent interview with Jasmeen Manzoor. You can watch the interview here on these links:

– Quoting Singapore example is pathetic. Singapore is very low in ranking when it comes to media freedom. So PTI is going to go for a Singapore type strangle hold on media? are we going for Zia or Ayub type media policies? Justice without freedom is nothing and not possible. There is no justice in slavery and a party like Pakistan Tehreek e “Insaf” should know this thing. Media freedom also includes freedom to be biased or freedom to propagate their own agenda (right or wrong is a subjective thing).

– One thing he should also know is that it was not Geo which started this Taliban Khan rant, it was General (Retarded) Musharraf who first used the term Taliban without a beard for Imran Khan but then again IK has forgotten all this in his newly discovered troop worship nationalism.

– Appealing people to boycott Geo voluntarily is the right way instead of siding with military on an issue involving an attack over journalist like Hamid Mir. Geo surely did deceptive reporting as they are a business group with business interests but focusing the attention on a business group and vindicating military establishment which actually runs the show is disappointing. He is criticizing Geo on supporting war on terror but probably forgot to mention who is fighting this war or who brought this war in the first place? Its army that did this! He forgot to mention General (R) Kiyani who criticized the people who were against this war and he did this right before elections.

Its just like a surrender in front of troop worship mindsets which also include many of PTI supporters and leaders too. As a leader, he should help people take a stand in front of tyrants like he did during judiciary movement or during his consistent opposition against this war. Its seem (with huge disappointment) that even he is tired or defeated and now seems to be in a compromising mood. Disappointment is not seeing people like Nawaz, Zardari, Altaf etc surrendering in front of military might but disappointment is seeing people like IK, who have achieved so much for the country, surrendering in front of military mafia.

– Where is the plan to challenge PPO? PPO is a blunder and a gift to army which can be well used by them to target political parties like PMLN itself or PTI or JI or others in case of a martial law. Nawaz has a habit of shooting in the foot by trusting military with more power but now IK is learning these skills.

What about missing persons issue? Why no protests against the use of fighter jets like JF-17 thunder on Pakistani populated areas? Why no protest against army for protecting Musharraf? Army will burn the whole country just to protect their interests and people like Mushi but troop worship mindset will still chant Zindabad slogans for them which is a big big shame.

Javed Hashmi in Islamabad Tonight with Nadeem Malik–> 1st May 2012

Good program and a bold discussion on Army operations, Balochistan, Liyari,Peers and Makhdooms in British Raj, and other topics by Javed Hashmi and Nadeem Malik. JH has shown that he can think above himself.

مخدوم کا خطاب انگریزوں نے بنایا اور اس کے ساتھ زمینیں دیں۔ انگریزوں نے مسجد شہید گنج کی شہادت کے خلاف فتوی دینے پر پیروں کو زمینیں دیں۔ہمارے ملک میں بہت کم سیاستدان ہیں جن کی معیشت پچھلے پچیس سال میں بہت مستحکم نہیں ہوئی۔ قوم بھوکوں مر رہی ہے اور سیاستدانوں کی دولت اور گاڑیاں بڑھ رہی ہیں۔ یوسف رضا گیلانی کو اپنے والد سے ملنے والی جائیداد مجھ سے کم تھی۔ میں یوسف رضا گیلانی کے گھر افسوس کے لئیے گیا ان کے گھر میں اے سی تک نہیں تھا۔ مخدوم اپنے مرید سے پیسے مانگ کر کھاتا ہے وہ کیسے بادشاہ ہو سکتا ہے۔ یوسف رضا گیلانی کو سزا ہوئی ہے اسے اخلاقی طور پر استعفی دینا چاہئیے۔ عوام اٹھ گئے تو پھر کسی کی پرواہ نہیں کریں گے کہیں گے کہ سب سے جان چھڑاؤ۔ مسلم لیگ ن کی طرف سے سپریم کورٹ پر حملے کے فیصلہ میں زمہ دار لوگ بھی شامل تھے۔ زرداری نے نواز شریف سے ملاقات میں کہا کہ اس کا بس چلے تو تما ججوں کو ٹانگ دے۔ جماعت اسلامی،عمران خان اور اچکزئی نے نوازشریف کے کہنے پر الیکشن کا بائیکاٹ کیا تھا۔ نواز شریف نے بعد میں خود الیکشن لڑنے کا فیصلہ کر لیا۔ عمران خان اسی نوازشریف کی وعدہ خلافی کی وجہ سے اس پر اعتبار نہیں کرتا۔ ملتان میں مسلم لیگ ن کی سیٹ پر پیپلز پارٹی کے امیدوار کا جیتنا لوگوں کا ن لیگ کے خلاف نفرت کا اظہار ہے۔ پیپلز پارٹی کے لئیے پنجاب اور خیبر پختونخواہ میں الیکشن کے لئیے امیدوار ڈھونڈھنا مشکل ہو گا۔ مسلم لیگ ن کی سیاست نے پیپلز پارٹی تقویت دی ہے۔ میں بھٹو بینظیر کی سیاست تو سمجھ سکتا ہوں لیکن زرداری کی سیاست سمجھنے کے لئیے پی ایچ ڈی کی ضرورت ہے۔ مسلم لیگ ن قومی اور صوبائی اسمبلیوں سے استعفے دے تو ایک طوفان اٹھ کھڑا ہو گا۔ میں نے کہا تھا کہ میں زرداری کے مقابلے میں صدر کا الیکشن لڑتا ہوں۔ میں نے نواز شریف کو کہہ دیا تھا کہ تاریخ آپ کو کبھی معاف نیں کرے گی جس طرح آپ زردری کو بالواسطہ صدر منتخب کروا رہے ہیں۔ آج بھی مسلم لیگ ن اپنی سیاست سے پیپلز پارٹی کی مدد کر رہی ہے۔ ہم عدلیہ سے یکجہتی کا اظہار کریں گے کہ قوم آپ کے ساتھ کھڑی ہے۔ عدالت کا فیصلہ آنے کے بعد حکومت نے نہ مانا تو پھر پارے پاکستان کو پیرالائز کر دیں گے۔ ہم کوئٹہ گئے لوگوں نے ہمارا بہت محبت کے ساتھ استقبال کیا۔ ہم بلوچستان جاتے ہی نہیں ہیں کہ وہاں کسی کی بات سنیں۔ مسلم لیگ ن استعفے دے کر اسمبلیوں سے باہر آئے تو پھر ہم ان کو ساتھ لے کر چلیں گے۔جاوید ہاشمی

ISLAMABAD TONIGHT

Guest: JUSTICE TARIQ MAHMOOD, SHAHEEN SEHBAI, MARIA SULTAN, KHAWAJA MUHAMMAD ASIF & DR A Q KHAN

TOPIC: Wikileaks, Role of Pakistani political and Military leaders

Shaheen Sehbai said that Pakistan top leadership is badly exposed. He said it is time for our leaders to clarify their positions. He said it is very important that our leaders clear this impression that they cannot take decisions without American advice and dictation. He said that like America, an official representative should be present in any such meeting with the Diplomats, and minutes of these meetings should be maintained.

Maria Sultan name is also mentioned in Wikileaks documents. She is one of those people who met with Americans. She said that she did not meet Ann Peterson instead she met with American Embassy officers after a conference on Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT).

She questioned the authenticity of Wikileaks documents. She said we have blindly believed everything that Wikileaks documents revealed. Talking about American demand to Pakistan to return enriched uranium Maria said that American demand was not for Pakistan only but it was for every country.

She said that the conversations of our leaders should be recorded and submitted to some government institution or respective Ministries. Similarly, the need of officially maintaining record of all engagement, agreements, information sharing or military-to-military understanding should be officially maintained.

Dr A Q Khan commenting on one of the revelation of Wikileaks, that president Zardari promised to American ambassador to keep him confined to his house, said that he could tell by government tactics that they do not want him to walk free.

Dr Qadeer said that Pakistan should never sign FMCT unilaterally. He said Pakistan could do its utmost but America will never sign a civil nuclear deal with Pakistan.

Justice Tariq Mahmood said that American ambassador Ann Peterson offered to appoint Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, as the judge of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in a meeting with him. He said that the offer was to entice Justice Iftikhar to end lawyer’s movement.

He said Americans always take care of their interest but we are not committed with the cause of Pakistan. He said that there is always one government official accompanying with the Americans when they meet some body to record their conversation. He said Pakistan also needs to practice same thing to keep a check on people holding top-most official positions in Pakistan.

He said we need to get rid of this thinking that without American support we cannot form government.

Khawaja Asif said that the only way we can free ourselves from American influence is economic progress in the country. He said without economic development, eradication of corruption and tight control on profligacy, Pakistan will continue to remain under the US influence.
