Pakistan First.

Pakistan is going through the worst of its times. A fact that we all must accept as being realists. The killing of Bin Ladin and several attacks on Pakistan Naval forces including the recent attack over PNS Mehran Base, Karachi has surely raised lots of questions over this country’s security and armed forces. I won’t be going into the details of the attacks as I believe those talk shows coming on our TV channels should be more than enough to fulfill your desires for listening to the conspiracy theories related to the attacks.

My focus is the bigger picture! Where do we stand today after all these sufferings? I believe we are definitely on the wrong ends at the moment. Our national integrity is on stake and somehow we are responsible for it. The international media is raising some serious concerns over country’s national security and military capabilities. We have to answer the world!

The thing which again pinches me is that how can we answer the world when we ourselves are unaware of the hypocritical attitude that many people possess within our leadership and establishment. We all know quite well that there is somehow a soft corner for these militant groups among few within our armed forces and country. This attitude has to be sorted out. We have to stand as a nation against these organizations before it is too late. It’s just not about killing terrorists now , we have to change mindsets now in order to survive this wave of religious fundamentalism and fanaticism . Secondly we have to stop the very popular “blame game” and have to focus over taking responsibility of our acts and deeds. Unfortunately we lack these credentials by far the standards that Islam possesses.

We can see Imran khan putting up “Dharnas” over Drone Attacks but we do not see any of these “Dharnas” against the religious extremism prevailing within this country. We can see Nawaz Sharif coming over television and talking over the lack of credibility that this government has but we do not see him condemning such coward attacks made by these terrorist organizations with in our country every day. Many regard Gen Kayani and Pakistan Armed Forces as their heroes but sorry to say after what has happened in Karachi in past few weeks even that ray of hope seems to diminish. We call Zardari sahib a very “refined” politician but as being the President Of Pakistan he has been unable to protect our national sovereignty!

To be honest the situation at the moment depicts as if Pakistan is on sale!

What should be done?

The best way out is to act. Let’s act against this cancer which is spreading throughout our society called “Terrorism”. We just can’t rely on conspiracy theories, we are wrong at certain places.We must accept our blunders and move on for a prospective future rather than seeking in the past for nothing but old school theories. My concern is not President Zardari nor Imran Khan nor The Generals living in DHA schemes , my concern is PAKISTAN. The world has set its eyes over us! Please ACT before …………………

Pakistan Zindabad!

Bin Ladin Departs....Suffering Starts!

Osama Bin Ladin is dead! A news which surely shook everyone of us as soon as we heard of it. The news broke as The President Of The United States Of America came on live on t.v late night(American Standard Time) announcing the death of Bin Ladin in Abbottabad,Pakistan which was later being welcomed by most of the world.

It was the 2nd of May, around 1:00AM(Local time) in Pakistan when two helicopters carrying US marines soldiers landed outside a 10 canal house in Abbotabad and conducted a forty minute operation there and then left with one helicopter being destroyed. After several hours the news broke that Bin Ladin has been killed by special marine forces in Abbotabad, Pakistan and later on we got to know the details of the further casualities.

Now, the question which I have been asked by few is that was it really Bin Ladin who was killed? Or is it all a mere drama? I believe the news is correct, it was Bin Ladin. The reason why I say this is due to the fact that Al Qaeda has confirmed that Osama Bin Ladin has died today and secondly the DNA results have also matched according to the white house correspondant.

The other query which all of us are having is about the role of our government, Intelligence agencies and military establishment! What were they doing? Did Pakistani forces participate in the operation? Was there intelligence sharing in this regard? Or our whole establishment was unaware of the situation?. The answer is Yes! Our TOP government and military establishment was aware of the operation and it somehow intentionally did not jump into the operation in order to avoid retalliation from Al Qaeda militants in future which we now have seen turned out to be the dupest of moves as Al Qaeda will now focus on Pakistan as its top target instead of states, according to their new statement.

What now? Who gets what?

As far as US goes, President Obama finally has something in his bag to stand a chance to win next Presidential elections in states. Furthermore, United states will look to carry out operations in Northern Waziristan and will pressurize Pakistan to let them carry on such tasks.

What about us? I’m afraid to say this but we are trapped. On one hand Al Qaeda has announced a direct warfare against us while on the other hand we will face a definite pressure from States for letting them carry on operations on our grounds. The other situation which further worries me is the trust deficit between both the countries and the fact that India will try to take maximum out of it which we already are witnessing.

All of a sudden we are on the back foot. Pakistan has again got itself into nuisance. The only difference is that this time it can get even worse then what happened after 9/11. We will be directly confronted by quite many forces for harbouring terrorist leaders yet again and groups which US has already mentioned lately and some how we are at war again!

Pakistan nowwould wantminimum damage and this depends upon the activities which take place in Afghanistan and the credibility of the country’ leadership in coming time.

May God bless and protect Pakistan. PAKISTAN ZINDABAD
