What would have been a whistleblowing scandal in the West, is a usual news in Pakistan. There never has been a Watergate kinda scandal here.
Bashir Memon’s (former DG FIA) episode could have been a swift blow to the government in a conscience country. At least it would have caused serious investigation. But here, it is just another conspiracy against the handsome.
Or – in the past – Hamood Ur Rehman Commission Report should have stirred the whole establishment within a fortnight. But of course, not here. The East was a piece of traitors. Done and dusted.
By the way, our commission reports have evolved. Resembling our CCPO Umar Sheikh, reports also blame the victims and their families and the public-at-large. Like APS Commission report.
Public outrage needs a direction. A civil or civilized direction. In case of unknown rulers, public and its outrage is clueless. How can you agitate against an institution with guns and without roses? How can you even think of morality and integrity in a mannequin as PM? It’s just a dummy with lingerie on for display. For your eyes only.
Yet “I am democracy”.
You know if your entire focus is on exhaling your rage, it will lead to nothing. For example, calling for ‘hang the rapist’ and seeing the rapist hanged satisfies you. Until there is another rape story to haunt. I mean a big rape story. Otherwise, it’s a routine morbidity in the state. From minor kids (boys and girls) to girls (without discrimination) to corpses (women only).
I am indifferent to the idea of rapists being hanged, just to be clear.
The problem is the problem. When are we going to look deep into the psyche and the upbringing of the rapist, and the root-cause of the problem? Their childhood? Their background? Their idea of crime? Their social circle? Their environment?
There is a need to make a committee of psychologists and sociologists to have a deep look. Even hanging a rapist daily won’t solve the problem. We have accepted the problem – good – now we need to find the cause.
A lot can be found while benchmarking international practices where this issue has been studied and controlled.
Anyway. Back to the future.
Hilary Clinton once said, “you can’t keep snakes in your backyard and expect them only to bite your neighbors. Eventually those snakes are going to turn on whoever has them in the backyard,” That was for us, Pakistan.
‘Snakes’ are the ‘proxy outfits’. Our very own beloved. For whom we are begging FATF.
‘You’ is ‘deep state’.
And deep state is deep shit.
In another widely circulated video, a host asked Hillary Cilnton about deep state. Clinton defined it as a term coined by political scientists to describe certain countries like Pakistan where… well… what to say. 2 years and half a million rupees. Enough said.
As she cannot be labeled as a ‘traitor’ or an ‘agent’ – inconveniently as she ain’t Miss Fatima Jinnah – she is causing anger. Because she just didn’t mention Pakistan but she kept on explaining the deep state without a pause and without a mistake.
Ouch! Between the legs.
You can be angry at her too. Hang Hilary. Be done with it. But the problem won’t be solved like that because she is not the problem.
And look at the brighter side. Out of all the 195 countries, she mentioned us. Pakistan. The word ‘Pakistan’ echoed in the entire west. Goosebumps?
If all the missing persons are terrorists / agents – like Idris Khattak – and Ehsan Ullah Ehsan is not missing like missing persons; then don’t you think everything is tilted upside down in this land of pure? That was just an epiphany while writing a note of treason.
Get out of your comfort zone and stop ridiculing your intellect by reacting at the ‘effects’. Focus on the ‘cause’. Figuring out the cause will help to solve hundreds of issues around you. Including pizza services.
Look for the chef who is cooking the rotten eggs. These waiters, are mere waiters, working for their tips.
By the way, what a win for Noorani. Whatever the outcome, or your judgement, he will be remembered as victorious with mere words of objective truth. Just like hips, numbers don’t lie.
One article, couple of tweets, no apologies and check-mate.
Rally plans are all set for Gujranwala. New CPO has been appointed. Those who danced all night for freedom of agitation in 2014, are using state machinery against the opposition. Well, don’t be afraid. This is not even an opposition.
For two years, this opposition tried to appease the deep state. After failing, it decided to fight. The stance – which is harder at the moment than anyone could predict – is going to be a thing to watch. The funny part is, PM Imran Khan was not even considered by the PDM. The guns are rightly pointed at the guns.
With all the opportunists (waiters) united under the PDM, this is another episode in the history of the country with some hope. Some hope. Although, there are more chances that it will be shattered. But for once, with some politicians, journalists, activists, writers, and whistleblowers; this is the first time ever that the state within the state has been taken this harshly for their eternal crimes.
