Democracy’s brain child…….Bhutto Republic of PakistanAugust 15, 2008
(Written by Afaq)
Have you ever visited interior Sindh? If not, you are missing something remarkably great. It’s not an ordinary place; instead it’s the germ pool of the plasmodium of Democracy. No matter, if people there have no penny in pocket, doesn’t care if they have nothing to fill their bellies…….salute them…….they are ‘jiyalaas’-the hobbyhorse of mythical Bhutto-the sole custodian of Democracy. Don’t get misguided if someone tells you about the private jails of feudal lords, or if by chance you encounter one columned, four lined news of the gang rape by sons of some ‘wadairaa’… Don’t get irritate if don’t find any infrastructure, schools and hospitals there….. People there known as ‘haari’ have already sell their souls and conscience to their feudal lords, and in return are enjoying the best form of democracy delivered to them by their ‘maindha saayeen’.
Let’s, for a while turn the attention from Sindh to Baluchistan. I fear, it looks a useless exercise, as Baluchistan is not the fragment of Pakistan. At least, one of the elected representatives of Balochs, few days ago on ‘Geo News’, and Mr. Khair Bakhsh Murree, few months ago in his interview has said the same……. ‘Baluchistan is my first identity, not Pakistan‘…..’We have never accepted Pakistan’…. ‘We would keep fighting for greater Baluchistan‘…. ‘Everyone who would support us is welcomed, even India’…..then Google out the Bloch Liberation Army (BLA) with their videos released, blasting the Pak Army caravans……
Shocking enough for you! Come’ on. It’s democracy. If people of interior Sindh, and some places of Punjab are smart enough to elect the same feudal, again and again. If elected ones of Baluchistan hate Pakistan, who am I to stop them. They after all are democrats….. And yes, never listen President Pervez Musharraf, when he says, ‘Pakistan is not a banana state. No one anywhere is allowed to start disintegrating the unity of state. Organisations, working as seperationalists, must be resisted by force’. Ignore his words when he says, ‘I am more than 1000% assured about the involvement of Raw and other foreign elements for insurgency in Baluchistan’.
We are genius. We have solution of every problem, by a magical charisma of slogan, ‘Jiyay Bhutto’. Who cares if Pakistani currency is getting worst devaluation these months. Never ask why foreign reserves of 17 billion dollars fall down to 9 billion dollars after elections. Why to fret of Al-Qaeda taking over Pakistan. I don’t see any reason to worry because, ‘Zinda hai Bibi’. Never suppose Asif Zardari, as Mr. 10%, while he is serving Pakistan 100%. He would add his share even more, after sitting in Presidency. If Aitzaz Ahsan-world’s top 5th intellectual, while facing interview with ‘New York times’, lip slipped that many charges against Asif Zardari including ransom and murder were justified, forgive him. Asif Zardari-the widower of daughter of East, has every right. He deserves to receive billions of insurance amount of his wife. He is democrat, having 10 million votes in Feb 18 elections for his party. He knows how to play with his words. People of Pakistan have gifted him an authority to rule over them. He would exercise that power, either by speaking against ISI, or by impeaching Mr. President.
However, I am just thinking for few days about couple of ideas.
1-How would Pakistan army bear its chief, polishing the shoes of new President-Mr. Zaradri?
2-Like Bilawal, I must also revolutionize my name from ‘Nayyar Afaq’ to ‘Afaq Bhutto’ to have my survival promising in Democracy’s brain child, ‘Bhutto republic of Pakistan’.
