Altaf Hussain’s Animosity With Imran Khan

Altaf HussainWhy Altaf Hussain don’t support Imran Khan or PTI (Pakistan Tehri-e-Insaf)?

We will come back to this question in a minute.

You must have listened Altaf Hussian’s speeches where he claimed he is against feudal system and like  to eliminate  jageerdari and wadaira system. Then you have seen he has always collaborated with PPP (Pakistan Peoples Party). Contradiction in words and actions. New generation of his voters are watching this indifference in MQM’s stance .

Now all the political parties of Pakistan have clearly been split into two blocks. Those who want to keep the status quo (supporting Nawas Sharif) and the ones who want fundamental changes for the benefit of people (Imran Khan and PTI) Dr. Qadri can also be classified into the second category. Though PAT (Pakistan Awami Party) don’t have political presence in the parliament but their demands are essentially the same as of PTI. MQM has supported the Nawaz Sharif. New generation of Urdu speaking voters believes PMLN has made their life more miserable than what it was 5 years ago during PPP’s tenure.

Altaf Hussain and MQM know PTI is a threat to them in their strong hold city of Karachi. Though there is no difference between demands of Imran Khan and Dr. Qadri but Altaf Hussain said he support Dr. Qadri. Simply because PAT is not a threat to MQM. On the other hand he ridiculed Imran Khan. Altaf Hussain sent biryani, water and medicines to Lahore to Minhaqul Quran’s headquarter.

Why Altaf Hussain did that.

There were political motives behind those action. One, he hopes Dr. Qadri will ask his supporters to vote for MQM’s candidates in Punjab. Or, even if he did not endorse, at least his supporters will remember Altaf Hussain and his biryani.

Let us go back again why Altaf Hussain has animosity with Imran Khan. He believes the money laundering case against him in the UK was instigated by Imran Khan. Whether it was Imran Khan or not Metropolitan Police in the UK does not touch anyone unless they have some credible information. If Altaf Hussain or MQM is not involved in money laundering then nobody can do anything against them.

Why People Party Don’t Support Imran Khan?

Asif-ali-zardariIf you recall sometime back Nawaz Sahrif asked NAB (National Bureau of Accountability) to send him files of all the cases against Asif Ali Zardari, Makhdoom Amin Fahim, Raja Pervez Ashraf and other PPP leaders. Immediately after that Khursheed Shah (PPP) leader of the opposition in the parliament and other PPP leaders in the province of Sind issued statements to support the protest right of Imran Khan and Dr. Tahirul Qadari. Though the statements were not strong but the purpose was to send a signal to Nawaz Sharif that this is what will happen.

Nawaz Sharif refrain himself to move further.

Now probably PPP is given assurance their cases in NAB will not be pursued so PPP has started supporting openly to Nawaz Sharif and his government and start criticizing Imran Khan.

Zardari and PPP know about his corruption deeds during his tenure. They also know if Imran Khan came to power they will not be spared. So at any cost they would like to save this system and keep it un-touched. That is why they tell you they support the constitution and the so called democracy need to be protected.

All those political parties who get the benefit from the present system which is a product of the present constitution do not want to change it.

GEO TV channel supports Nawaz Sharif and similar forces who want to keep the status quo. Unfortunately, some of the TV anchors do not understand that constitution is there to serve the people of Pakistan not the other way round.

Some of our political leaders also due to their personal interests they support the status quo. Others due to their ignorance.

Now you can see where the present political movements stand and where Imran Khan wants take Pakistan.

It is a long journey but if the determination is there caravan can reach to its destination.

On 14 August 2014 A Message To Our Leaders

Pakistan FlagThe river never drinks its own water.
The tree never tastes its own fruit.
The field never consumes its own harvest.

They selflessly strive for the well-being of all those around them. Do our leaders of today understands this.

Obviously not.

Will that day come when it will happen? Yes. It is possible only when the people demand. Government or the present political system is corrupt because people of Pakistan tolerate. If the nation does not accept  the prevailing situation of corruption there is no way it will continue.

The basic problem is the people of Pakistan think that this is the responsibility of their leaders to change their conditions for the better. And the leaders have decided to use the national resources for their person benefit. All politicians are agreed among themselves so nothing will happen anything good for the people.

Javed Hashmi – Sick Oldman

Makhdoom Javed Hashmi
Javed Hashmi is a dead horse. Imran Khan should know better, he should not ride the dead horse. Javed Hashmi had his time. Now he is miss-fit in any political party. He will continue to change political parties depending on his mood and not based on any principle. Why he left Nawaz League? If you know the answer you can predict his future action. Simply because Nawaz Sharif did not include him in his inner circle. Though Javed Hashmi held the fort for Nawaz Sharif in his absence in Pakistan. That is the way Nawaz Sharif is. That is the way Javed Hashmi is.

Chaudary Nisar Ali Khan as Interior Minister

After taking the oath of his new position Chaudary Nisar Ali Khan (commonly known as angry-man) talking to media he stated that law and order is the responsibility of the provisional governments. That is true.
It seemed he wanted to say that daily target killings in Karachi is the responsibility of Peoples Party’s provisional government to stop it or take any action. Similarly Pakistani Talebans’s bomb attacks in KPK is PTI’s provisional government’s responsibility to take action. In both of these provinces Noon League’s government is not there so he washed his hands off. Two questions here for Minister of Interior: One, if maintaining law and order is the responsibility of the provisional government then what is his job and what is his responsibility? What the federal minister of interior will do? Collect the reports from provinces and present to Nawaz Sharif? There are plenty of secretaries to do this job. Second, do the federal government wants PTI to have talks directly with Therik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and make a settlement with them? TTP’s demands are not limited to provincial things. They want drone attacks to stop. Who is going to talk to USA? TTP don’t accept Pakistan’s constitution. They want Islamic law to implement in the country. They want to establish more like a theocracy. I think the Chaudary Nisar Ali Khan should have accepted the challenge and the problems nation is facing and explained to us what is his solution to resolve those law and order problems. What is his agenda? How he is going to proceed.? As of now the whole government of Nawaz Sharif don’t have any road map or at least they have not told the nation. Now we are hearing he is going to address the nation. Let us see what he is going to tell us. His speech in the national assembly was hopeless if nothing else. Mahmood Khan Achakzai and Shaikh Rasheed were the only two persons who addressed the problems and talked about them. Rest of the members including Nawaz Sharif spoke only verbose. That is not going to cut the mustard. He will know very shortly and should learn now.  He also enjoyed five years along with PPP government.

Khawajah Asif on Javed Hashmi’s Statement


Yesterday, Khawajah Asif made a speech in a gathering of his well wishers in his home town Sialkot and said it seems Javed Hashmi wants to come back into Nawaz League.

A couple of days back we said the same thing that
Javed Hashmi‘s statement about Nawaz Sharif in the parliament seems to be an indication that he wants to go back to his previous party.

We did not hear anything from him or Imran Khan on this subject. We suggest Javed Hashmi should make his position clear, in what context he said Nawaz Sharif ‘was his leader and is his leader’.
He don’t think Imran Khan is his leader.

How Pakistani TV Channels Announce Breaking News


Here are two examples from today’s news on Pakistani TV Channels. That tells you the maturity level of our media.
First breaking news:
Nawaz Sharif has met with Chaudary Nisar Ali Khan Interior Minister. This was announced taking pause in the routine program.
Second breaking news:
Germany has announced 93 million Euro aid to Pakistan to help ease out energy crises.
Beggers are proud that they got alms. This was also announced by stopping the regular transmission.

Makhdoom Amin Fahim on Nawaz Sharif


Makhdoon Amin Fahim is the party leader of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the National Assembly. Yesterday, after the election of Nawaz Sharif as new prime minister all the party leaders made speeches. Amin Fahim made the remarks in his speech that they have made him prime minister and he (mean Nawaz Sharif) should be thankful to one agency also who helped him to reach to this position.

I think Amin Fahim forgot to mention one more name.

That is, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudary, Chief Justice of Pakistan Supreme Court. If he has not given the verdict in his favor, Nawaz Sharif will not be here today. So Nawaz Sharif should be thankful to him.

Javed Hashmi on Nawaz Sharif


Yesterday, after the election of Nawaz Sharif (Noon League) as prime minister in the parliament, Javed Hashmi (PTI) while speaking on the assembly floor said,

“Nawaz Sharif was his leader, and is his leader”
Here is a question for Javed Hashmi, if Nawaz Sharif is his leader then why he came to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)? If his leader is not Imran Khan then he has no reason to stay in PTI.

Probably, Nawaz Sharif will welcome him back with open arms.
Javed Hashmi was previously in the Noon League and like other politicians who changed parties for their personal benefit, he left Noon League and joined Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Javed Hashmi left Noon League for what ever reasons it seems he still have soft corner for Nawaz Sharif.

I think he should better go back to Noon League that will be better for him and for PTI.

President Asif Ali Zardari and His Affiliation with Pakistan Peoples Party

President Asif Ali Zardari and His Affiliation
Yesterday an interview of Asif Ali Zardari with senior correspondants of TV channels was broadcasted. This interview was given by him as President of Pakistan. He may be sitting in his home Bilawal House which was declared as President House. On one side was the flag of Pakistan and on the other side was President’s standard. So this was purely office of the President of Pakistan.
But at the background on the wall there was a big size portrait of late Benazir Bhutto. No president of any country display his wife’s picture where actually the picture of Muhammad Ali Jinnah should have been there.

Basically, he protrayted her as the founder of the Pakistan.

Is it legal and constitutional?
I did not see any of the correspondents raised any question about that.Next day, I did not see anything in the newspapers also.
Did chief justice saw that? He is very fond of taking suo motto.

Obviously, he was promoting PPP while sitting in the President House. A case is pending in the Lahore High Court about Asif Ali Zardari should surrender his position as co-chairperson of the PPP. They could not do it during the last five years. Few months ago he did resigned from that position at his own choice. So called free judiciary could not do anything. But he has still made President House as PPP House.

Did any political party raised any question about that.  I have not seen any statement or heard anything.

Leaders of Nawaz League, namely Khawaja Asif was saying yesterday we will not allow anybody to do anything against constitution of Pakistan. We will have to assume in his eyes displaying Benazir Bhutto’s picture in place of Qaud-e-Azam is according to constitution of Pakistan.

The nation which in immune and does not care about their history, unfortunately history also does not care about them.

Gujrat School Van Tragedy


On Saturday, May 25, 2013 in the morning a school van was hauling children to their school while it got fire. As a result of this fire 16 children along with their lady teacher got burned to death. Eight children are said to be injured and are in hospitals.

A really sad incident.

Civil Administration got crazy did not know what to do. They canceled the registration of the school. They claim the driver of the van has also been arrested. A police officer blamed the fire occurred due to negligence of the driver. May be?

But that is not the root cause of the fire.

Police can take what ever action they like against the crime. But did anybody took the right decision to find out the real cause of the fire? Unfortunately non. Most probably nobody new what to do. So they canceled the school registration. Is there any sense in it?

Most probably the parents have arranged this van to transport their children to school. Do you want to punish the parents why they hired this van to transport their children? No.

You need to find out actual culprit, catch him and take action against that person or persons.

Let us analyze a little bit.
Motor vehicles are inspected every year at the time of renewal of their license or tax token. Was it done? Most probably it may have done but paying some money to the inspector the vehicle must has passed the test.

Who was responsible to keep the vehicle in good maintained condition. The owner of the van or driver or both. Or School administration?

We did not hear that police has traced or arrested the owner of the van. Driver said he is not the owner of the van.
Basically, they should question the vehicle inspector how he passed the vehicle. Then there was a CNG cylinder in the van.

Driver said the fire occurred when he switched to petrol, probably petrol leaked. This requires investigation and if this is a maintenance issue then they should catch the person responsible for maintenance, i.e. either the owner of the van or the driver if he was also responsible for maintenance.

Problem is nobody is interested to find the real cause of the incident. Just haphazard actions without any real results. The same thing happened in Karachi factory fire. They arrested the owners of the factory and put their name on the exit control list. Our honorable chief justice sahib also came into action. But results zero. Because either they did not know what to do or they were not capable to investigate and find the real cause of the fire and make those accountable.

Nobody talked about the Government Inspector who inspected, if inspected and approved the building and Civil Defense people who approved the fire fighting system.

TV channels showed many examples where such public transportation vehicles got fire but simply because no proper action was taken so these accidents continued to happen.

Nawaz Sharif and Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudary

Nawaz Sharif has come into power. All the credit goes to Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudary, Chief Justice of Pakistan Supreme Court. If he has not cleared him from all the charges for which he was sentenced for life then he will not be here where he is today.

Nawaz Sharif should also be thankful to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia for saving him from the punishment. Though, the King is still not happy with him because he broke his confidence and lied to him. There is no doubt Nawaz Sharif lied when he said he did not have any agreement with government of Pakistan to go into exile and he will not participate in Pakistani politics for ten years. But our Supreme Court is quite flexible and Election Commission of Pakistan cleared him.

This called authority of the courts.

Can anybody get the decision of his choice? You make your own judgment. You also have the authority to make your own mind.

Blank Box on The Ballot Paper


Election Commission of Pakistan has announced that there will be a blank box without any candidate’s name or election sign. The voter will have the option if he thinks none of the candidate is suitable for the job he can stamp on the blank box.

That is a good move. Election Commission also said if fifty percent of the people who voted in that constituency stamped on blank box then the election will be considered void. That is also a good move.

There is a need to extrapolate this practice at the national or political party level.

This election is not going to change much but Dr. Tahirul Qadri has created some awareness among the voters about the corrupt politicians and political system in Pakistan. Our political leaders particularly Nawaz Sharif ridiculed him.

Badam Zari of FATA


Badam Zari is a house wife in a remote area Arang of FATA. She has submitted her nomination papers for standing in the elections for national parliament. We salute Badam Zari for her courage to come out and fight for the people of FATA. That is the type of people we need to come out. Obviously, she will face a lot of hurdles but this is the responsibility of our media and political leadership to give her full support. We particularly expect Imran Khan (PTI) to at least give her full moral support and help her to get elected. She is the real person for real cause. Our media goes for hype like they created hype for Malala.

What Malala has done for the country or for the people of her area other than getting a couple of gun shots from Taliban. There are thousands of people who were killed by Taliban nobody talked about that. Unfortunately, our TV Channels are more interested in making money by doing anything which increases their viewership.
Badam Zari is the woman who needs our support.

Next parliament must gave the FATA a separate provincial status so that they have their own assembly to solve their own problem.

Stop ruling them. Let them rule themselves. That is the only way forward for the progress of these remote and unfortunately backward areas.

Nomination Papers Submittal Date Extended

Nomination Papers Submittal Date Extended

Today March 31, 2013 is the last date to submit the nomination papers for 2013 elections. This date was extended for two days from the previous date. General impression is this was done to give the chance to prospective contenders to get the bills and dues cleared before submitting their nomination papers. This may be correct.

But the insiders say this was done to facilitate the political parties to give them more time to decide about their candidate to submit their papers from which constituency.

Would you call this is a fair practice? Absolutely NOT.

Do the political parties have any influence on the working of Election Commission? What does it show you.

Did any political party or anybody for that matter asked to assign more days for scrutinizing the eligibility of contenders except Dr. Tahirul Qadri. He went to Supreme Court also to get this thing implemented but Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudary, Chief Justice did not like his idea and through him out the Court.
Pakistan Zindabad. Aiy Qaud-e-Azam tera ahsaan hey ahsaan.
