The recent rhetorical attack by Fasih Bukhari on the Supreme Court of Pakistan is causing galvanizing disturbance in the politics of the country. His letter to President Zardari about judicial pressures has exhilirated and invogarated PPP's tough stance on the judiciary. With its pestiferous and pernicious content, the ruling elite has proved once again, that the third branch of government is the prominent cause for their downfall.
As perceptible and illustrious the reputation of judiciary is, the same cannot be said for our rulers. Their action lacking promises have earned them everything but respect in the eyes of people. An example of Mr. Zardari can be given who enjoys a decorative description in the political circle; "President par-excellence of corruption". A clandestine prerogative he has maintained for five years. This sophistical and surreptitious act has caused the development of our country to come to a screeching halt. Advancement in every discipline has slowed the nation down to embarrassing levels. Struggle for basic needs have become a painful chore amidst deteriorating law and order situation. Ambience of rivalries and antagonism are being created because of injustice in the society. Recent cases of Shahzeb Khan and Kamran Faisal murder cases have shaken the helpless citizens of Pakistan to their core. Powerless as they are, these two incidents have resulted in the creation of animosity and dissension towards the ruling elite.
Since the executive and legislative branches of government have failed to deliver on their promises in their five years of tenure, people have looked up to the Supreme Court to intervene on their behalf. Chief Justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary has been known to people as a hero who stands up to the elite by reminding them of their oath. This has caused a resentment within the rulers, especially Pakistan Peoples Party. With their claims of being sacrificial lambs, they have defied nearly all his orders. To malign him, different tactics have been used. From Nasim Bukhari and Malik Riaz to Faisal Raza Abidi, PPP didnt leave any stone unturned. Even Mr Chaudhary's own son, Arsalan was used against him but that also failed to shift the public opinion about him. The confrontation became more clear when National Accountability Bureau was ordered to arrest the Prime Minister, Raja Pervez Ashraf for corruption in Rental Power Project.
Crisis between the government and justice system have deepened even more now that Fasih Bukhari have accused it of hindering the ability to do his job as Chairman NAB. This seems to be the last attempt on the part of ruling elite to defame the judiciary. If Bukhari's request is granted, it may halt any investigations and inquiries against all corrupt officials. That could lead the the two branches of the country to a collision course, granting one victory over another. If the judiciary wins, it will strengthen the public's belief on it, paving the way for elimination of corruption from the society. But if the executive wins, it will gain "political martyrdom", a dream come true for them, weakening any hopes of reparations. The writing will be on the wall for the judges that Democracy, not Justice "is the best revenge".
The topic of new provinces is not new to us. Pakistan Peoples Party and its allies have always told their voters about the woes and afflictions Southern Punjab is facing. With conviction, they have vowed to form another Province of "Bahawalpur Janubi Punjab". This has nonetheless, caused a lot of stir in the political circle particularly from Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) where the new would be province has been abbreviated as BJP.
But, what is the reason behind the creation of new provinces?
The answer is simple but brutally harsh. A bird's eye view of the pitiful situation of our people can provide an incontrovertible and unambiguous evidence of humiliation they go through everyday. From absence of electricity for days to long lines for petrol and CNG tells immeasurable and prodigious tales of "good governance" and "deliverance". To add insult to the injury, massive cases of corruption make headlines on front page. Not to mention, the statement of Fasih Bukhari that a staggering 12 billion rupees (approximately $95 million dollars) are lost daily to racketeering in every profitable sector.
Comparing the promises of the people in power with the strident conditions in their constituencies show a striking contrast in their mellifluous claims of honoring their oath. As preposterously rich they have grown, their communities have plunged into depths of poverty and destitution. From the looks of the mansions, the powerful, seem to have born with silver spoons in their mouths. But in reality, they have snatched the last bite of bread from the poor; leaving them struggling for crumbs. Sitting in their comfortable houses and lodges, they lecture the public about the greatness of the policies and ammendments making them hypnotized with their eloquence.
As elections are approaching, our ruler are realizing that nothing has been done for the country. Their promises are lacking actions. The venom of their inability has given birth to a shibboleth; new provinces. Should the effort succeed, people will begin to suffer even more. This will cause run away inflation in the economy hence giving birth to instability in the country. Anarchy and disregard of law will increase, resulting in rising of hostility between different ethnic and religious factions. Violence will be on its peak and so will be the loss of life. All this to promote "Democracy"; also known as "the best revenge".
"والله لعنت الله علی الکاذبین"
کوثر عامر! آپ جیسوں نے اپنے لیے جہنم کی آگ کا بندوبست کر لیا ہے۔ میں اس سے زیادە آپ کہ لیے کچہ کہنے سے قاصر ہوں۔ الله کے عذاب سے بے خوفی نے آپ کو نڈر کر دیا ہے۔ اس لیے آصف علی زرداری کا دفاع کر رہی ہیں۔ آپ کا اصل امتحان تب ہو گا جب آپ اُس ملعون کو طلب بھری نگاہوں سے دیکھیں گی مگر وە آپ کی مدد کو نہ آےٴ گا۔ تب آپ کیا کریں گی؟
Karachi is a wonderful city in our beloved country of Pakistan. As one of the most populous city in the nation it has 20 million precious treasures living in it. People from indigenous backgrounds have migrated to this vibrant metropolis making it an economic hub and a center where zest of life enjoys at its peak. Devotion is a title it maintains in the development of the country.
Alongside all the magnificient and phenomenal attributes Karachi enjoys, it also possesses the qualities of hell on earth. Target killing, extortion, kidnap for ransom on daily bases have made the citizens live a life of of torment and misery. Lawlessness and disorder are unrestrained resulting in the law enforcement agencies earning a bad reputation. Political parties have extremist and militant wings that are fighting over the control of territory. Terrorism is on an all time high that has given Karachi a title of a state within a state. Misinformation and misleading statements on the part of the media in determining the troublemaker have raised questions on its conduct. Pointing towards a "third force" and yet failing to name it is making it an accomplice in the pathetic situation of the city.
The citizens are forced to listen to the perversion of truth by their leaders who appear on national television promising to bring peace and tranquility. Claims of bringing people together and cessation of violence raises questions on their loyalty to the country. As educated as they look, they are equally untamed, uncontrollable and ferocious barbarians. Their actions are menacingly wild like their vicious words. The Quran depicts their actions in these verses
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمۡ لَا تُفۡسِدُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّمَا نَحۡنُ مُصۡلِحُونَ (١١) أَلَآ إِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدُونَ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَشۡعُرُونَ (١٢)
And when it said unto them: act not corruptly on the earth, they say: we are but reconcilers. (11) Lo! verily it is they who are the corrupters, and yet they perceive not. (Surat Al Baqara Verse 11 and 12)
An observation about the people talking in the video should make us ask a question. Does it look like they have a solution to the problem? The answer is obvious and clear as day light. Consistent failures have made them helpless who are determined to make us hopeless. It is them who are responsible for the failures but are unable to acknowledge it. They are the agents of Dajjal whom The Prophet of Allah (PBUH) warned about 1432 years ago.
The Quran is the Most Powerful Book on Earth and we must use it to reunite our selves against all odds. The Voice of Muhammad Bin Abdullah (PBUH) is The Strongest of All human beings. His predictions about the Last Hour (آخر الزمان) are coming true day after day. We must repent on our shortcomings and wrongdoings. The biggest violation that this Ummah has done is accepting "Democracy" where Sovereignty of Allah is rejected and the Supremacy of Parliament is selected. Remorse on our actions and seeking forgiveness from the Almighty will result in His Help in confronting all the difficulties. Through His Mercy, we will withstand the uncontrollable conditions of the future.
Jugglers or circus performers are a part of our society who have been largely ignored and abandoned. Tough economic conditions force them to stay away from their homes. Travelling from small towns to big cities, their lives are a metaphor of vagabonds. Neglect from the public officials and irrecognition from the public have made them a social outcast.
The tough financial and security situation in Pakistan has made life impossible for an average joe. To distract the attention from the woes and affliction of daily lives, people have turned to affordable forms of entertainment. An example of Lucky Irani Circus can be given. A small ad in a local newspaper is placed, which attracts a huge crowd from all over the country. People are entertained and facscinated by creative tricks of jugglers and magicians. Children are mesmerized by observing a world of virtual reality. The performers try their best to amuse the spectators, who return the favor by rounds of applause. The event continues for a whole day and at night, the entertainers go back to their tents preparing for another day of neverending cycle of hard labor.
This persistent, unchanging and continuously perpetual rhythm of travel is a routine for them. Living a life of unsettling poverty and destitution, they wander from one town to another hoping to get a chance of better living. Some jugglers stay away from their houses for longer periods while others choose to keep their families with them. The kids receive home schooling from the parents just so they can learn reading and writing. Aside from basic education, they also get exposed to the world of jugglery by acquiring the skills, honoring the legacy of their elders . The succession continues from one generation to another in a sequence that sees no end.
Jugglers have a face and life that has yet to be observed by the public. Years of bitter experiences make them have an impenetrable personality which makes them go unnoticed. The government must play a vital role in improving their economic conditions. Educational programs should be launched by television as well as social media in highlighting the tough circumstances they endure in their lifetime. Through proper information, we will be able to accept them for who they are. That will make our society an example for the rest of the world which is making every effort in the pursuit of happiness.
The martyrdom of Liaquat Ali Khan is no secret to anyone. Dr Shabbir has given us a story of the treacherous killing of our first Prime Minister. As one of the founding fathers of our beloved country Pakistan, he was also the first Minister of Defence and Minister of Commonwealth and Kashmir Affairs.
The question that every sensible person should ask is why are the documents about his premeditated murder being de-classified 61 years after his death? The answer is that we are being taken advantage of for forgetting our history. Our relation with the record keeping of past events has been pathetically miserable and worthless. The deplorable memories we have of our leaders, has made us into a nation determinably convinced that everything is fine. Being unable to comprehend the logic and connection of historical accounts, we have proved to be a nation that doesnt appreciate the value of freedom.
We are living in times where stronger nations are seeking to rule countries that have a weak socio-political and economic structure, a phenomenon known as neocolonialism. This era of hegemony has given many countries an image and title of a failed state. Unfortunately, our country is presenting an obvious picture of a dysfunctional state and the release of the de-classified documents after six decades is proving just that. The leadership of Pakistan has embarrassingly put us in a situation where questions about our very existence are being raised.
In these tough situations, we must re-evaluate our selves. We will have to learn how to take the country back from the hands of the traitors who are determined to destroy it at any cost. Commitment and devotion to the positive development of the country is needed more than ever. Revival of the the vision of Iqbal must be made important. The pain he had for Pakistan can be compared to that of Nabi Zakariya Peace Be Upon Him had when he prayed to His Lord for a son. In his poetry, the agony for sincerity can be found. His prayers to the Almighty was for a nation which is righteous, unpretentious, free of deceit and hypocrisy. Keeping that anxiety in his heart, his soul departed leaving us all in an unending, merciless tribulation.
The story of Liaquat Ali Khan is of a man who made relentless efforts in making Pakistan the best country in the world. A land where the rights of minorities, women, underprivileged and impoverished are respected. We will have to strive vigorously to make our nation an ideal for everyone, hence taking back the respect and honor we once enjoyed in the eyes of the world.
