Musharraf, maafi nishta…!


Pakistan has very complicated and painful history of power politics. Today where-ever Pakistan stands because of selective approaches and selective attitude of justice. Hence, if you said bitter truth, you would get orders by state which tell you, not to speak. Same orders never come in hands of criminals.

But can anyone hide mirror of history? It seems interesting whenever undemocratic faces come over power politics then they always try to make themselves democratic, while asking mirror of democracy that Tell me, how much I am democrat, instead listening to an answer of mirror of democracy they reply themselves that I am democrat more than anyone.

Alas! Mirror of history has its answers where killers and guilty will not get easily answers at their own wishes. Tradition of history is different, history is like city of Heroes and villains, when villains to be treated badly. In Pakistan, dictators never got chance to stand before court and neither had accountable, their sins and crimes went with them.

It is an eerie behave, whole media and self-styled educated opportunist class talk against density in Politics, corruption of politicians and feudalism. Do they ever say a single word against density in dictatorship by establishment, naked corruption of dictators and lords of establishment? 

Unfortunate, where nation must sit-on at the door of dictators and to be condemned their wrong deeds, dictators are being supported by opportunist class and when dictators done badly with country and their time period is about to finish then same faces put masks of people’s politics and will say sorry. Though, nation must hold trial real culprits and be hanged them only then nation would be able to move on real path of democracy. In Pakistan, dictators are freed from trial and never to be punished. Nowadays we are hearing that in Pakistan’s history dictator has been sent to the courts and his trail will be held. It is funny when we see a man who has committed many crimes, has avail high security and living in rich house, his trial to be held. Does Pakistan treat its thugs and criminals like Musharraf? Why our brave media and champion of freedom expression, is unable to speak against Musharraf as they once did on case of Memo gate.

Musharraf being a dictator, he thought he would never be accountable. Consequently, he jumped into politics; it was Musharraf who claimed as Commander, he was commander on the salary paid. Therefore, there is a big difference between paid commander and political commander.
But now he must realize that political commander was Benazir Bhutto, who came, fought and assassinated. Benazir Bhutto (late) never put herself around golden walls. She refused to sit in and walked on the edge of political sword.

What does Musharraf do? He ran from court room but late ZA Bhutto stood in court room even he knew he may be going to be hanged on the based of fake case. Musharraf has committed grave mistakes which cannot be forgiven. Balochistan is burning because his wrong and footless actions. He thought while killing big leaders, people would become helpless and keep silence but he was wrong he didn’t know what political consciousness is and how it works among people. 
That’s why dictators remain dictators unless they don’t know what the importance of political sensitivity is if they knew, dictator would never have walked on undemocratic road. Musharraf is facing cases in the court but he is still in safe hands and being treated as like King. However he has violated and killed from constitution to political leadership, too. If anyone says, he is innocent in assassinating of Shaheed Akbar Bugti and Benazir Bhutto; that person may live in heaven of fools. Does Musharraf shift his face in case of missing persons of Balochistan? Musharraf says, he was innocent man and nothing was in his hands; to whom he spoke, people of this country are well enough aware and have had enough experience of dictatorship. If nothing was in his hands, why he is claiming that I have done better things for Pakistan? 

According to him, nothing was in his hands, Ohh, does he want to connivance that all goody things were in his hands and bad things were in other people’s hands? Musharraf is making fool of himself, even he cannot see eyes of time which are telling him that not to tell lie.

Why Musharraf is on row of trial?
Will he be punished of his crimes? While looking at his hearing trail, it doesn’t seem that his case will face any kind of punishment. There are some views that Musharraf’s case whether writes history or not but his case is giving soft picture of establishment before the world. Establishment of Pakistan wants to come on the stage of world with fair face and they may be able to claim that our hands are not in power, nor in judiciary system. 
We want healthy and democratic system, moreover if establishment repeated its mistake and took over power, Musharraf’s case provides them excuse that they didn’t play role during Musharraf’s trial and trying to see democracy but due to bad governance and politicians’ stupidity, has forced to us for saving our country. Moreover, Musharraf will have bunch of excuses if he runs off the country and lives whole life in abroad. Then, Musharraf would be able to say that he was not convicted in any case. Thus, his trial will provide tissue paper for cleaning faces of establishment and his own either but on the other side of people can say that in our history one dictator was sent to the court, only for few minutes…!

Maybe Musharraf would be freed to the abroad, in the name of security purpose and his trail that never be heard. Doubts are in the air of power politics, Musharraf’s trial is nothing more than cold drink in hot weather of politic of Pakistan. Well, if Musharraf fled away and courts of Pakistan would not be able to say anything. 

Whether he cannot slip from the mirror of History, history has its trial where none will run, nor be able to make any excuse because History always as says as Pathan says Maafi Nishta means no forgiveness.
Mr. Musharraf can get safe way for saving his life but he remains guilty in the court of history--a history that has no forgiveness for dictators and culprits. Is there anyone who can go and tell to Musharraf that you may escape from these cases but the history of court has Maafi Nishta how will escape from it?
