By Dr Shahid Qureshi:-
What Nawaz Sharif did to Pakistani Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa and ISPR on ‘Dawn Leaks’, is in the words of Lord Nelson: “If you cannot baffle them with brilliance than dazzle them with Bullshit”.
The whole theme of Dawn Leaks was designed to undermine the only surviving and reasonably performing institution – The Armed Forces of Pakistan. If Dawn Group is run by Iran-Indian alliance elements and they have no hesitation to publish such a damaging story than it is part of the syndicate. No? If the answer is yes and the premier agency has all the evidence than why there was so much delay in the action? The compromises in the national security matter cause more damage.
Had army and its institutions took the strict action against Geo TV Group’s ISI and its chief Gen. Zaheer-ul-Islam bashing seriously, there would not be a Dawn leak. One do not reconcile with the traitors, openly damaging the very guards of the nation, who are at war day and night? That is why British King said – “It is very easy to recognize a traitor – it’s the one criticize the army fighting the war”.
Nawaz Sharif invited Indian prime minister to his private house in Raiwind and send his military secretary on leave by saying ‘it is a private meeting’. He did not invite his national security advisor to any of the meetings with the Indian Prime Minister Modi.
Nawaz Sharif is a compulsive liar, well he lied to the people Pakistan that there was no 10 years’ agreement between him and General Pervez Musharraf and The Saudis. I do not own London Apartments. The woman who is centre of this Dawn Leaks is not credible herself. She put Sharif family’s honor and dignity at stake for just a uniformed man said an insider. I asked one of his batch mates what was the reason Captain. Safdar’s appointment as ADC of prime Minister Nawaz Sharif? He laughed and said: “he had all the relevant (clothes) uniforms”. Now one can imagine what are you dealing with – corrupt to the bones.
Nawaz Sharif abusing the armed forces of Pakistan and accusing them of breaking the country.
These politicians in Pakistan are bunch of criminals and thugs which suites the foreign agencies as they can be easily arm twisted and put on the track. It is not the case that they are not ready to deliver themselves but just in case when rat goes loose. That goes with all the elements hired abroad from civil, military, judiciary and politics as being corrupt and bent is added benefit.
I wrote few years ago that wealth and assets abroad of Pakistani politicians and elite is a national security threat and it is proven to be true now. Those who have ill-gotten wealth and assets in London and Dubai are very visible to the agencies and their arms could be twisted any time. In the words of Indian politician Lalu Parsad Yadav – “You take the calf and cow will follow you automatically”. Following that policy US and other countries started offering scholarships to the sons and daughters of Generals, Judges, Bureaucracy and Politicians. There is no such thing as free lunch. I told my junior from Government College Lahore now a senior Pakistani police officer while he was on scholarship course in London. Do you think British spend tax payer’s money on you for nothing? You will pay back in the time of need in kind.
Khawaja Asif Defence minister abusing the armed forces of Pakistan.
Pakistan Army and its intuitions are prime target of Nawaz Sharif lead regime filled with pro Indian and anti-army elements from Defence Minister Khawaja Asif whose speech in the Parliament need no more explanation. I think army should if not already raise a special specialist force to deal with these elements. In the words of US Supreme Court during civil war: ‘special measures for special circumstances’.
Obviously like everywhere else people are related to officers and soldiers in the Pakistan Army but if some general’s dad is business partner of Sharif family’s in laws, he should excuse himself as these crooks create a perception which is far from reality but could be damaging the institution.
Well General Qamar Bajawa, above speeches of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and current defence minister Khawja Asif are enough for you to make up your mind. If you still don’t know who is running Nawaz Sharif and his regime than you may as well excuse yourself from this role as your stance on ‘Dawn Leaks’ has already damaged the moral of the country and army ranks and files.
It is nothing to do with so called democracy or constitution as it is simple matter of national security of Pakistan. One simple question for you is – does dawn leaks come under army act or not? If yes than what are you waiting for? Any further delay, compromise or in action will demoralise the ranks and files of the army and country.
Remember that “No one can ride on your back unless it is bent”.
