People who change their Shaheed.

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Time has changed in Pakistan; yesterday victims of suicide bombing were mentioned as “Jaan-ba-Haq” but today Pakistani media call them “Shaheed”.

Yesterday, a Pakistani soldier who died while fighting with Talibans was a “dead” to Pakistani media but today they mention him as “Shaheed”.

Yesterday, for Pakistani media and for so called leaders, Army was killing its own people in FATA but today they stand behind Army and praise its actions.

In 2003, same army launched a similar military operation in same Waziristan’s same capital city – Wana – against same Talibans to fight the same War on Terrorism, but then those who were killed (i.e. Talibans) by Pakistan Army were “Shaheed” for many. And our soldiers who lost their lives they were just “were killed” for us.

It’s funny to see that same so called political leaders and so called “vibrant” media is supporting Pakistani Army today who opposed similar military actions in past.

Who are these people who change “Shaheeds” with the time?  Would they ever admit if they were wrong yesterday or they are wrong today?

I wonder if we had saved any lives, if we have had prevented any suicide bomber, if we have had not seen any incidents like GHQ if – AND ONLY IF – all these people had supported “Wana operation” in 2003 and made it a success.

Pakistan: Why Kayani needed to speak?

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Recently, General Kayani issued a statement asking Washington not to intrude into our territory and let Pakistan army do the jobs as and when considered necessary. He unambiguously stated the “terms of engagements” and referred to his recent meeting with Admiral Michael Mullen.

Kayani said:

The sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country would be defended at all costs and that no external force is allowed to conduct operations inside Pakistan…the right to conduct operations against the militants inside one’s own territory is solely the responsibility of the respective armed forces.

Why Kayani needed to respond to US frequent intrusions? Why our newly elected president did not utter a word about it? Why our Prime Minister considered only passive support to Kayani’s statement? Why no strong support came to Kayani’s statement anywhere from govt.?

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about US replacing Musharraf with PPP to pursue its regional agenda more actively. Does this mean that PPP govt. – after showing exit to Musharraf – was actively following the US agenda and Kayani had to intervene? Does this mean Kayani will be new obstacle for US – like Musharraf?

Why our Prime Minister and Defense Minister needed to rebuff Kayani by saying:

We cannot wage war on U.S.
