Asim replaces Firdaus. So? Nothing.
You need to be dumb to be that numb.
Once upon a time, Vawda brought a boot on a live TV show. To make a point. He did. Boot was the point. But you didn’t get it.
Shit happens. Security lapses. Bombs blasts. People die. Collateral damage. For the sake of argument… fine.
But ‘Ehsan Ullah Ehsan’ never happens. The one who is responsible for the goriest incident in the history of the country, doesn’t ‘escape’ like that. That doesn’t happen.
Yet it happened.
As if nothing happened.
This country was hijacked from the very beginning. Those who ran the machinery for their Colonial Lords, took charge of it.
Gora sahibs transformed into Kala sahibs. Same establishment. Same bureaucracy. Same nawabs. Same military.
Jinnah knew that very well. That’s why he was suspicious of Ayub and made stern remarks against his political ambitions.
But Jinnah died and a vicious cycle of ugliness started. People were labeled. Treason was imposed. Blood was sold. Jihad became business. History was mutated. To make a fortune of conglomerate businesses based on the political empire of violence and power.
Even Fatima Jinnah wasn’t spared. She was abused, labeled, defeated and then silenced. The first opposition leader died mysteriously in her Mohatta Palace.
With Fatima Jinnah’s death, dissent was muted. Forever.
But every now and then, Asma Jahangirs and Habib Jalibs came. They roared. Their roar became words of defiance. And they were labeled too.
And here with real masters behind the curtains, we have puppets presenting an expensive show; Buzdar as CM, Tareen as no one. All the visionaries of change being ugly and greedy. Being busy in legal crimes to make fortunes with subsidies.
People believe a democracy is in place. Which is not. Which never was.
People think that the PM is the PM. Who is not. Who never was.
People think that Parliament has power. Which does not. Which never had.
And you are too numb to get the point.
