You protest against injustice and you are an activist and want change.
You sit in dharnas to show that the government is based on a corrupt electoral system.
You go on strikes against privatization of public companies.
You protest against the wrong use of blasphemy laws which shows your comprehension and sensibility.
You speak out against killings of minorities, children and women to support peace causes against barbarians.
But if you speak or ask a question about the war on terror, military strategies, military spending, or the intelligence, you are a piece of shit. You are a traitor as you question the very foundation of Pakistan. How dare you?
This is my Pakistan as much as anyone else’s.
I will ask questions when I am dying due to an unknown war, with unknown people, based on unknown money, with unknown motives.
I will ask questions when my General will put me into a situation where murdering women and children is termed as “collateral damage”.
I will protest when I have to kill my own people with my own gun in my own streets.
I have been silenced for far too long.
I remained silent during 1971. I even kept peace when I read the Hamoodur Rahman Commission.
I supported you blindly in the 80s when you created the Taliban and empowered them with weapons for a decade long war against the Soviets.
I ignored your policies in the 90s when you were supporting your Taliban and helping their madrasah system.
Then you started to kill them in 2001.
May I ask what you have achieved in the last 14 years?
I question your capability against people who were empowered by you.
And most importantly I question how you plan to defeat them when they have defeated the Soviet Union, America, and the NATO.
I have a number of serious reservations.
The November 2014 carnage at Wagah Border happened at the third check-post. I want you to punish all the personnel in the first and second check-posts which the bomber crossed easily.
The genocide at Army Public School Peshawar happened in Cantt. There are check-posts on each entry and exit of Cantt. How did the terrorists manage to pass all the hurdles? I want all the culprits hanged along with the terrorists.
There is blood on your weapons. There is blood on your hands. Our weapons have killed children and women in Pakistan. Our bases were given to drones to launch strikes against children and women in Afghanistan.
Who started targeting children first?
It was a military decision to enter into a war which was not ours. Imran Khan was against this notion since the beginning and he was labeled a Taliban sympathizer.
It is time to see the cause rather than continuing to moan about effects. I need you to accept your mistakes. It is time to accept the real reasons that our children are being targeted.
You said that America would destroy Pakistan if we did not support her. Haven’t we self-destructed as a result of this support?
Whether you want to call it treason or any other tag that makes you comfortable; so be it.
My patriotism lies with Pakistan and its people; not with any organization and its personnel.
And Insha Allah, Pakistan will survive; with you or without you.
