By Dr Shahid Qureshi : –
Samozas of Pakistan have proved that they will never change no matter what ever is at stake whole country or its assets. The recent so called democratic elections in Karachi and winning of terrorist group MQM-A is a clear sign that politicians have decided to destroy every institution of Pakistan whatever is left. Only a week ago two military police soldiers were killed in cold blood by the terrorists in Karachi but dummy and geriatric Chief Minister Sindh has not signed on the papers giving powers to Rangers for operations against terrorists. His master Asif Zardari is sitting in Dubai in self-exile after making threats to Army Chief. He is saved by Nawaz Sharif in $60 million Swiss Case for not representing the case in court and providing essential evidence. The state is almost collapsed where Chief Justice of Supreme Court has asked many times to improve governance. The armed forces have issued a press release for the improvement of governance in the context of Karachi operation where terrorist are being released by the police and courts for lack of evidence.
Asif Zardari during his term destroyed Railways with the help and support of pro India ANP. He destroyed civil administration and police which Sharif brothers aka ‘Banu Sharif’ continued in Punjab province since 2008. They did not hang a single convicted criminal and murderer out of 8000 plus waiting to be executed until 2015 after the tragic incident of Army Public School in December 2014.
The worst tragedy is that both Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif lied to the people of Pakistan that if they hang any one EU will stop trading with Pakistan. When I contacted the European Union on this matter they denied point blank any such instructions. The result of that lie to the people and state of Pakistan was that it had to suffer more terrorist attacks on military, security institutions as well as civilians. In Pakistan only one TV channel SAMA run the story for few minutes and then there was silence?

None of the so called media gurus in Pakistan bothered to call EU and ask for clarifications hence media was also complicit in this crime against the people of Pakistan? So much so the Jang group newspaper continued to promote the ban on executions by various ways in media. I had to personally speak to the senior reporter Imran Ihsan about his story about a comment from EU envoy in which he stressed EU’s stated position on executions. The envoy never told Pakistan to stop executing convicted criminals by the courts. The same group’s reporter Amir Mir filed a story that an ISI Brigadier rank officer passed on information to the CIA in Islamabad about the correct location of Osama bin Laden and was granted US citizenship and living in US. I spoke to Siddiq Khan the editor of The News Lahore and told him that: the officer mentioned was British citizen living in London for over 30 years, suffering from bowl cancer since 2006, never travelled to Pakistan and died in April 2014 due to cancer. British media covered the story and proved you (The News) were wrong. I asked Siddiq Khan how can you publish such damaging story without proper checks and what is the punishment for the reporter who damaged Pakistan’s institutions by this false and fabricated story and get away with it?
That can only happen in Pakistan where government ministers openly criticise Armed Forces ‘fighting a war’ lost over 5000 men and thousands injured. Information minister Pervez Rashid said: we are not with the army. Country’s part time defence minister Khawaja Asif undermine the armed forces in the parliament called them losers and cowards. Another federal minister Mushahid Ullah Khan accused army of conspiring against the government.

In the previous government Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani asked ISI chief Lt General Shuja Pasha to go to India and help India investigate Mumbai Terrorist Attacks. His interior minister Rehman Malik found the route map and boat. What this idiot did not know that there are 19 check posts from Pakistan sea area to Mumbai and if they could not trace them how he got it so quickly. On top of that Nawaz Sharif confirmed the identity of Ajmal Kasab the sole terrorist survivor of Mumbai attacks which India hanged and berried his body in Delhi jail. India did not give access to Pakistan to investigate this terrorist and not even body after hanging.

It is reported in the press that when Pakistani security institutions started arresting corrupt elements in the elite and also the financiers of terrorism US, UK and others have jumped in to save their assets. Americans have used Islamic Sharia laws to save Raymond Davis a murderer of three Pakistanis on the other hand UK is saving MQM- A assets including Altaf Hussian for sometimes even after the murder of Dr Imran Farooq on its soil in London. On the other hand Sharif Brothers have their multi billion dollar businesses in London so their hands and legs are already tied. So is Asif Zardari had his business in London and Dubai. Their files tell exactly where did all this money came from? Prime Minister David Cameron hinted about the ‘corruption’ in his speech at the Commonwealth Conference 2015 in Malta few days ago. The result MQM-A won the elections in Karachi and Rangers were stopped from working by not issuing authority letters on time. Ishaq Dar’s financial terrorism continues for sometimes on the one hand he is toeing the IMF agenda but on the other hand he is protecting MQM-A.
USA seems to have changed its policy of ‘disposable diplomacy’ after the killing of Abdul Haq aka Hollywood Haq in Afghanistan at the hands of Taliban when USA sent an unmanned drone to save him and adopted British one to protect the assets like Hamid Karazai by all means. British sent Special Forces to rescue him from Taliban attack in Afghanistan in Orzgan Province.
One must admit that Pakistanis lack credibility in saving and protecting its assets therefore have given free ride to the Americans and British who can correctly say about their assets in the words of 32nd President of USA Franklin D. Roosevelt what he said, about Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza: “He [Somoza] may be a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch”.
Pakistan has now officially become Samozastan – so Long Live Samozastan – ( Samaozastan Zindabad)
