Why did Imran Khan intend to hold closed-door meeting?


It is very strange to us that why politicians come up with funny talks in the arena of power politics. Maybe politicians don’t have good script for speaking before media or by wage talks; they wanted to have attention of media.

Once upon, people had entertaining politician Former Chief Minister of Balochistan Nawab Muhammad Aslam Raisani, whose words knows as amusing in world of comedy that degree is degree.
But chapter doesn’t close when we read news that Imran Khan calls for closed-door meeting.

While reading statement of Imran Khan, it seemed that Aslam Raisani has returned.
Does Imran Khan have no information that our foreign policy of Pakistan has been written by the military and without permission of establishment, no one can dare to add single letter of A…B…C in foreign policy.

People understand well, what is status of APC in our country? It doesn’t get result except taking cup of teas and long speeches.

We have doubt that Imran Khan might not read Abbottabad Commission Report, the report tells entire story of foreign policy of Pakistan. Oh, Imran Khan no longer asks regarding Drones, will he not march to former ISI director general Ahmed Shuja Pasha’s house since Pasha's statement on Drones are reported in Abbottabad commission report? As Imran Khan has been against drones and after Abbottabad commission report, he doesn’t seem any more talking against Drones-Attack.

When country makes policies under the shadow of establishment, then why is Imran Khan asking that military should be on same page. In fact, it is already on every page of power.

Probably, Imran Khan has shown his own grief that first they had promised him for meeting and later he was ignored.
Therefore, Imran Khan wanted to be on the same page? 

Imran khan intends to hold meeting with General Ashfaq kiyani and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, then fundamental issues must be discussed but why such decisions among three?
As we know, we have two more provinces that their political figures also there. What about the two provinces of this country Sindh and Balochistan?

If Imran khan is showing his will to know truth regarding national security concerns in closed door meeting, now, why are not other politicians being given much attention for seeking the truth about our failure security plan or strategies?

If that truth or major issues are the agenda of three men’s meeting, however at the same time why government needs to waste its money and time on APC?

On the other hand if media and opposition let them (General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan) to hold track II diplomacy, we know that we will have the press releases of the meeting for the newspapers on the bases of Don’t-See, Don’t-Listen & Don’t-Speak. So, Imran Khan may want this?
Well, he should know that our policies are made on the table of establishment and fragile government is bound to follow them. Imran quoted IMF package. Our country is undeveloped and each government does not willing to serve people but in the name to people power hungers are to serve their vested interests.

Counter Terrorism Policy?

Policy regarding terrorism is always known as matter of strategic policies that are often finalized by military thus are always reluctant disclosed its security agendas.
A country cannot defeat the cancer of terrorism, unless extremists are being fed by their own people.
Why did Imran Khan call for closed-door meeting?
It could be message to Ashfaq Preves Kiyani by Imran Khan that they should give him propriety in the matter of decision-making.

Malala Yousafzai

ملالہ یوسفزئی۔۔۔!
تم مجھ سے کبھی یہ سوال ناکرنا،
کہ زندگی کو صلیب پہ کیوں لٹکایا جاتا ہے،
یا پھر ہم سب دھول لیکر اپنے چہرے پہ کیوں لگاتے ہیں
کیوں کہ میرے پاس کیسی بھی سوال کا کوئی جواب نہی
لیکن ھا تم اک بات ذہن میں رکھنا،
جب تم دنیا میں ناحق دیکھو،
تو تم ان کے بیچ میں لکیرین نا کھینچنا،
لیکن ہر درد پہ آواز اُٹھانا،
اور ہر ایک ناحق کے خلاف اپنے پاؤں کو آگے کرنا،
ہماری دنیا میں زندگی صرف صلیب یا چہرے پہ دھول نہی ڈالتے،
لیکن ہماری دنیا میں ناحق کو بھی ڈبو (باکس) میں ڈالا جاتا ہے،
انسانیت کا بٹوارا کیا جاتا ہے،
اور تم کبھی بھی انسانیت کا بٹوارا نہی ہونے دینا۔۔۔(ہلینا)
 پاکستان میں گر کوئی نئی بات ہوسکتی ہے تو پھر وہ یہ کے انصاف اور جمہوری انداز سے حق مل سکے۔ ہمارے پاس ہر روز اور ہر پل ناحق دستک دیتا ہے۔
کیا پاکستان میں عورتوں کے ساتھ ظلم ہونا کوئی نئی بات ہے؟ ہماری اخباریں اُٹھا کر دیکھیں ان میں ہر باکس ظلم اور ناانصافی کی خبروں سے بھرا پڑا ہے۔ اس ملک میں مذہب کے نام پہ ہندوں لڑکیوں کو اُٹھایا گیا اس وقت ملک کی کون سی میڈیا، پیاری سول سوسائٹی یا انسانی حقوق کے علمبرداروں نے آواز اُٹھائی؟ جو لڑکیاں سپریم کورٹ تک گئی ان کو کون سا انصاف ملا؟
وہ مخالف پارٹی والی جو آج اقتدار میں ہیں انہوں نے بلوچستان کی ناری دیپا دیوی کوۜ کون سا انصاف دیا؟
عوام کے درد پہ کسی نے ایمانداری سے آواز اُٹھائی ہے؟ میں یہ سوال پاکستان سے لیکر پوری دنیا کی ہر اس مہذب سوسائٹی سے کرنا چاہتی ہوں جو بڑی بڑی دعوائیں کرتے ہیں۔
جب درد اور ناحق کو امیر ڈبے میں پیش کر کے دنیا کی مارکیٹ میں بیچا جائے تو پھر درد commodity بن جاتا ہے امیروں کی دنیا میں ہلکی سی خراش پڑ جائے تو انسانیت خطرے میں پڑجاتی ہے اور جب غریبوں کی جھوپڑیوں کو جلایا جائے تو پھر عذر پیش کیا جاتا ہے کہ ہمارے پاس ناانصافی اور ناحق موجود ہے ان کو حل کرنے کے لئیے اک بھتر سماج کی ضرورت ہے ہم کوشش کر رہے ہیں کے اک بہتر سماج جُڑ سکے۔
آپ اور ہم کو ردعمل نظر نہی آئے گا اس قسم کے دہرے معیار موجود ہیں اس لیئے ہی ناحق داداگیری سے گھوم رہا ہے۔
اس سارے suffocated ماحول میں کچھ آواز ایسے ہیں جو کوشش کرکے آگے آتے ہیں کچھ آوازوں کو پلیٹ فارم ملتا ہے اور کچھ کو نہی ملتا، لیکن اس کا مطلب یہ نہی ہونا چاہیئے کے اُن مثبت آوازوں کو سپورٹ نہ کیا جائے۔

ملالہ یوسفزئی!
جس نے کوشش کرکے اپنے آپ کو بھتر کام کرنے کے لیئے جوڑا ہے اُس کی اس کوشش سے کوئی انکار نہیں کر سکتا۔ ملالہ پہ چلی ہوئی گولی یقینن پہلی گولی نہی ہے اس سے پہلے بھی کتنی معصوم لڑکیوں پہ گولیاں چلی ہے۔ اس جسے کتنی آوازیں ہے جو بھتر سماج جوڑنے کی کوشش کر رہی ہیں۔ ان سب کی کوششوں سے کون انکار کرتا ہے؟!
ملالہ، گر سپورٹ حاصل کر رہی ہے تو اس کو سپورٹ کیون نہی کیا جائے؟ ملالہ کو سپورٹ کرنے کا مقصد کے ان جسی دوسری کوششوں کو سپورٹ کیا جائے کہ وہ سماج میں آگے آئیں۔
ہم سب اس حقیقت سے انکاری نہی ہیں کہ بہت سے آوازوں کو مثبت سپورٹ نہی ملی تو پھر کیا ملالہ کی آواز اور کوشش کو سپورٹ نہ کرنا چاہیئے؟؟؟
سوال یہ اُٹھنا چاہیئے کہ انسانیت کے علمبردار اس وقت باہر کیوں نکل آتے ہیں جب کسی کیس پہ میڈیا کی اسپاٹ لائیٹ پڑتی ہے؟
اس ساری ڈوڑ میں ملالہ کی آواز کو سائیڈ لائن نہی کرنا چاہیئے۔  یہ ناانصافی ہوگی کہ ملالہ کو اس لیئے سپورٹ ناکرنا چاہیئے کہ دوسری لڑکیوں کو پلیٹ فارم  نہی ملا؟
تو پھر کیا آپ کو ملالہ میں وہ لڑکیاں نظر نہی آرہی جو اپنی جگھ پہ اک بھتر سماج کی کوشش کر رہی ہیں؟
ملالہ ہمارے سماج کا حصا ہے جس نے اک کوشش کرکے آگے قدم اُٹھایا ہے ایسے قدم کو سپورٹ کرنا چاہیئے۔
اس سارے ماحول میں اک بات نہی بھولنا چاہیئے کہ ہم جس ملک میں رہتے ہیں جہاں تعلیم سے زیادہ بجیٹ آرمی پہ لگائی جاتی ہے

اور 2.3% تعلیم پہ لگائی جاتی ہے اور تو اور تعلیم پہ توجہ  زیرو پرسنٹیج ہے۔
ملالہ پہ تنقید کرنے والے اس ملک میں اس لیئے بھی ہیں کہ اس نے یو این او میں شہید بینظیر بھٹو کا نام لیا۔ ان سیاسی پارٹیوں کو سوچنا چاہیئے کہ ہر اک چیز کو سیاسی مفاد پرستی کے چشمے سے نہی دیکھیں۔
 اقرار کرنا چاہیئے کہ شہید بینظیر بھٹو کی زندگی اس ملک میں عورتوں کے لیئے inspiration  رہی ہیں، جب کہ سیاسی پالیسیز کو اک سائیڈ پہ رکھتے ہیں لیکن شہید بینظیر بھٹو کی ٹف زندگی سے کوئی انکار کر سکتا ہے؟
ہمارے سماج میں بہت بہادر آواز ہیں جن کو تعلیم کا سہارا ملنا چاہیئے۔
جس سماج میں اسکول بند ہوں، جس سماج میں لائیبرریاں بند ہوں، جس سماج میں بچوں کے ہاتھ سے کتابیں چھینی جاتی ہوں وہاں پہ ملالہ جسی آواز کو ہمت افزائی کرنا چاہیئے۔
گر انسانیت کا بٹوارا کیا گیا تو پھر دنیا جہنم بن جائے گی جہاں پہ زندگیاں جنم تو لیں گی لیکن صرف مرنے کے لیئے۔
ہم سب کو سوچنا چاہیئے کہ ہم سب انسانیت کے لیئے کیسے قدم اُٹھا رہے ہیں؟
ملالہ کی کہانی ایک بار پھر پاکستان حکومت سے پوچھتی ہے کہ آپنے تعلیم کے لیئے کیا کر رہے ہیں؟ آپ کی حکومت نے معصوم بچیوں کے تحفظ کے لیئے کون سے اقدام اُٹھائے ہیں؟ دھشتگردی کو کسے نمٹاجائے گا؟ جب پنجاب کی صوبائی حکومت جمعت الدعوہ کے لیئے بجیٹ رکھتی ہے؟
ہمارے بچے اسکول کسے جائے گے جب اسکولوں پہ تالے ہونگے؟

Violation of Children's rights

 Why you gave me birth?


Aah! Night,
All people are spending their lives
According to their own wishes,
I am standing alone
And looking to (you) the night,
Once voice came in my mind,
Whispery asked that
How do you spend your life?
Oh, night
Could you tell that voice?
Life doesn’t exist at my side,
Why I was sent to the world,
I don’t know an answer of Why?
But dear night,
I wish, one day I could see face of life,
How does it look like? Helena

I was remembering words of Helena when I read news about little three girls who were sold because family had to fill box of bribe of the police, thus these news are not new for us. Every day local newspapers come up with box, a box that tells about violation of human rights and you won’t see sue motu on single case.
Daily newspapers have same boxes along with different faces but same stories of injustice.

I myself asked question, how we could take cup of tea/coffee when our children are being sold and killed.
We claim that we can make change. Really?! Are people honest with their words, even?
It seems, poor people’s world is a like ramp-stage where pseudo humanitarian faces come and doing ramp-walking over poor people’s sorrows, only sake of self-interests.
If it is not like this then would any person of my country tell me that how many have you information regarding case of little three girls?

If this case happened in Karachi, Lahore or Islamabad, we would have been seen long Marches, holding play cards and chatting against lord-ism.
What a scene, media might have telecasted news on channels and people sitting at homes while watching news and then our faces could be become like monkey’s style after than we people started to mourn and blame at feudal-lords that they are poising our society.

Wait … hold your breath and now ask question ourselves that do we have an Idea regarding three girls?
If rich societies are facing problems, justice must be started to work against criminals and same injustice happens in villages then where are our humanitarian attitudes?

Can’t humanitarian attitudes apply on those people whose lives born in villages? Are they not human?
Unfortunate, three little girls might feel as poetess Helena felt that “life doesn’t exist at my side.”

“On 3rd July, 2013 newspaper knocked on our door and told about the news that three girls have been sold in village Tangwaani, Kashmor District. Police men of Tangwaani asked for bribe to Jabar Bakheraani. Family is poor and unable to pay amount of bribe to SHO Shabeen Abdul Hafeez Chachar. Family members sold their little girls to Abdul Lateef Bakheraani. Girls’ prices were Kalsoom Bakheraani 3 years old 40 thousand rupees, Rabia Bakheraani 4 years old 60 thousand rupees and Mumtaz Bakheraani 5years old, 70 thousand rupees. Meanwhile, SSP Kashmor has suspended SHO and made committee on case for investigation as reported.”

Ahh, little girls were sold around 40 thousand rupees, there prices were cheaper than laptop.
What do you except when government institutes have started to get bribe like this way. I have no idea that has police man ever seen faces of little girls? While asking for amount one lack and 70 thousand rupees.
Pakistan’s grave problem is that it has state within states, then what type of writ you are talking to?
Where government’s own institutes don’t obey the laws, where police get bribe at selling little girls. Can we believe that we have democratic government?

Sorry my dear Pakistanis, when your children are being killed and girls being made material product. Moreover, girls were killed by hands which holding sword of ignorance, too.
These are not only three girls, we have long list of girls, neither girls who got justice even nor voices from women’s rights or human rights organizations.
Once poor old lady told me, “We have pain, injustice, sufferings and no life. We are being as treated as animals.”

Whilst writing column, local newspaper of 3rd July is front of me. I am unable to do anything for these little girls, instead writing piece of words on the page and hoping that sleeping government may take action against local police. When will government take action? I have doubt and have no an answer regarding it.
But now I am only thinking for little girls whose lives sold in the market of dishonors.

How would girls face society, when they grow up? Could they face the faces of society?
However, will police man put off his hand on amount of bribe? What to be happened next with girls?
Girls are paying price because they are made commodity in society. Government’s police guards have turned into vulture and started to eat people’s lives.

Who will take sue motu against these vultures which are sitting on the tree of government’s institutes?
The little girls whose eyes are asking their mother that why are you handing over in strange hands? If we gave you amount, would you allow staying with you? Mother, why you gave me birth? Only for Thousands Rupees!!!

Ex-Dictator Musharraf Vs Article Six


Pakistan has many issues for discussing and each day you will have new issues. Now, what should we choose to discuss? While, our people are starting talks over ex dictator Musharraf, whose case becomes popular among Media persons and ruling class, thus common people which are known as the poor people they know what will going to happen with Musharraf?

As they are thinking, Musharraf's flight will not face bad weather of Article six and his flight to be taken off easily. But our elite class of intellectuals doesn't know about Musharraf's fate and they are jumping in the circle and loudly saying that this is historical case in our history. Musharraf's case seems to be part of wrestling game where Musharraf Vs Article six. Who will win? There is no excuse that if Pakistan is facing grave problems, because of series of dictatorship with its long ruling durations.

Dictatorship has had played its worst rule, its illegal footsteps couldn't control during early days. I am recalling words of Mahatma Gandhi, who writes in Book "Discourses on The Gita" that "The human mind is restless like a monkey and as difficult to control as wind." I am convinced by Gandhi ji who had beautifully described nature of mind. Here, I have intention of writing that words that as like dictatorship has as remained restless as Gandhi ji wrote. Dictatorship's mind is like a monkey and as difficult to control it, thus it is not impossible.

Whenever our GHQ's dictators walked towards house of the ruling power. They started to demolish each thing of the country, although people were not quite capable of identifying about loss that what is happening around them as dictators did artificial make-up on the face of disaster and when these dictators were made say Goodbye, after then disaster comes out with its real horrible face. Finally, people will be able to analysis that what have been happened with them, in the name of save country. Meanwhile, it is not easy that restless dictatorship being controlled by orphaned-people. As it happened in the case of Musharraf, who never threw out by any large movement, however lawyers' movement could make trouble for Musharraf even though such kind of trouble didn't force him for leaving.

It was martyred Benazir Bhutto whose assassination changed whole scenario and then Musharraf threw out of power. While eating grapes of power, Musharraf was unable to realize that what was he doing? Musharraf did worst with the people of this country, now people sing a song that Musharraf was not alone, therefore why only is trailed him? Everyone knows and can understand that he was not alone on the bridge of dictatorship but would anyone deny that all powers were not in his hands? It is strange, elected governments remained fragile and unelected or illegal dictatorships' ruling was powerful (un-fragile). When trail starts against any dictatorship in the rest of world, people don't make excuse to close case file of dictators. For God's sake, to get the dew of sense and understand sensitivity of historical problem of dictatorship in Pakistan, a country has been suffered because its constitution and elected leaders and people are being killed and the law was violated by dictators and their presence time to time in power, caused to weaken. Dictators have given urge to others, when they come in power, would violate law and ethics of politics.

If country had been driven by the constitution, today such kind of words might not have written. Mistakes must be accepted and let all dictators stand in the court of public and before the law. Musharraf's restless mind of dictatorship ruined country and still he has royal house of living. Does it not slap at the poor people whose lives are passing in the jail, without any evidence? It is comical wave, when Musharraf returned to Pakistan that time none spoke, including Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz, didn't talked on him. It looked as either PMLN or Musharraf, both are not in country, or we (people) are in other country? I have been writing on Musharraf's returning, is the part of power-game. 

He is not enough foolish. What were reasons, Musharraf was brought to Pakistan? There are doubts that those who might have promised or dreamt him that if country's political situation went in critical condition, you might be president. If it would not possible, then you can clean up spot of cases upon you. On the returning of Musharraf, language of politics changed especial PMLN, whose didn't speak of article six, nor talked against dictatorship. Such scenario sent message that something has been done on the table of someone. Sorry to write that fragile or contract based governments cannot change oldest habits of un-democrat minds, still remote control of government is in their hands whose hands are used to operate it.

Well, all things being done as what they wanted. It is not to be strange that why has PMLN spoken now? PMLN would not have ever spoken about article six but they didn't want to take advantage to PPP, because PPP could have started criticism over PMLN government. PMLN, knew well that if they passed order that Musharraf's trail article under the 6, then who will precede the case? 

A country stands on the bridge of terrorism, problems are flooding and suddenly sensitive problem being generated, then government can make list of excuses and maybe, government might hold press conference like this way that due to this and that reasons, we don't want to see bad situation as we have already problem but don't forget this is first time in the history of Pakistan that PM ordered, Musharraf's case must be trailed under the article six and we have locked the door of dictatorship but conditions are not in favour of country that is why we think that Musharraf can leave for a while and after then government would call him for case.

Musharraf may get the ticket to go abroad. People of country keep thinking, dictators get ticket and elected leader hanged. Article six, may good to appease people's anger. Musharraf Vs article six again one dictator might prove that constitution is nothing before them. Besides weaken institutions, Musharraf's case may not proceed. Who will control the restless dictatorship?
