By Dr Shahid Qureshi – :
Being flexible in management is a strength and not weakens but some pseudo philosophers and bent journalists criticizing Prime Minister Imran Khan for admitting being flexible and ready to change strategy as situation required. In military terms it is called ‘strategic retreat’, which is always used by good commanders in the history. However, Tariq Bajwa, Governor State Bank’s U-Turn cost Pakistan USD$ 200 Billion – No? Why Pakistani media not talking about that most expansive U-Turn?
A country can only be run with the cool head and open mind but the problem with Pakistani elite including media is that both behave like headless chicken and mostly scoring their own goals. Someone should wake these idiots up and tell them the reason Pakistani prime minister going door to door for money is because two corrupt rulers like Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardrai drowned the whole of Pakistan in debt as ‘collies of East India Company or in modern way assassins of the IMF and World Bank. If that money was not stolen from the national exchequer of Pakistan, there was no need for the Prime Minister Imran Khan to go to Saudi Arabia, UAE and China?
When all the international laws and Stolen Asset Recovery Program allows countries to get their assets back why Pakistani media is telling people that: ‘it is very hard to get the loot money back’.? Some people think half of the crimes in Pakistan will end only they shut down the police stations as people are already looking after themselves and police has become a mercenary force or killers in uniforms for the politicians and corrupt mafias.
Similarly, Pakistani media and so-called journalist have also become a liability to the state of Pakistan. All the negative stories reported in the international media originate from Pakistani liberal elite. The elite being used in 4th and 5th Generation Psychological Warfare for example Pakistani private schools like Beacon House and Atcheison College are teaching things which are anti state narratives and basic principles of the standards of the society.
For the information of people in Pakistani media. You never talk about dynastic corrupt families who have hijacked the democracy in Pakistan and yet invite people from these family businesses like run political parties to your shows who only defend the corruptions of their leaders be it PPP or PML-N. Your democracy will never be appropriate as long as these criminal democrats are sitting on top.
Tariq Bajwa current Governor of State Bank of Pakistan took the Biggest ‘u Turn’ that cost Pakistan USD$ 200 Billion and no one is talking about it? It is like no one attacked Switzerland in the World Wars and no terrorist attacks in Swiss territory because ever body’s money is there. Tariq Bajwa submitted his signed report to the Parliament of Pakistan, sent a delegation to Switzerland to negotiate the return of the money, deliberately did not go himself to sabotage the return of looted wealth to Pakistan. Sharif corrupt regime gave a long time over 4 years to all the ‘thieves’ to move around their loot money from Swiss Banks. Current PTI finance minister joined him in on the issue of the return of the USD $200 billion and dancing on the same tune of ‘oily tongue and corrupt’ Tariq Bajwa.
In May 2014 it was reported in media that: “Finance Minister of Pakistan Ishaq Dar told the National Assembly that government is seriously considering steps to bring back illegal assets from Swiss banks.
The Finance Minister told the National Assembly in writing that the government is seriously mulling to exchange information regarding the illegal money deposited in the Swiss banks under new laws.
The new Act of 2010 allows the Swiss government to exchange the confidential information regarding the illegal amount deposited in the Swiss banking industry. Ishaq Dar said that the Pakistan-Switzerland tax agreement is unsatisfactory, and amendments are required in order to gain access to Pakistani capital. He further said that the Federal cabinet has approved the summary to review the agreement with the Swiss government.
Parliamentary Secretary for Finance Rana Afzal said that the names and accounts of those Pakistanis could be accessed who have deposited unauthorized money in the Swiss banks if the amendments are approved in the Pakistan-Switzerland agreement.
Furthermore, a delegation will visit Switzerland from August 26 to 28, 2014 to bring back the illegal money from the Swiss banks.
It may be mentioned here that Pakistanis have deposited almost $200 billion illegally in the Swiss bank accounts. Pakistan’s $200 bn plus in Swiss Banks and its finance minister is begging IMF and World Bank for few dollars.”
Finally, Keeping in view with all the information available now and evidence, documents with the government of Pakistan it would be highly appropriate for General Qamar Bajwa, Chief of Army Staff to order a Military trial of this financial terrorist Tariq Bajwa former secretary finance and all those aiders, abettors and accomplices and if he is found guilty of financial terrorism, he should sign the orders of hanging till death like he is doing for the other terrorists.
