Marching Ahead

Imran-Khan disobey

“Follow me to build a Naya Pakistan”, said Imran Khan, IK to a gathering of countless supporters on the night of the 19th August, 2014. “I shall be in front and you all behind me so I can take the bullet before all’’”.

Bold words, bold move, only expected when a leader is desperate enough to gain what he started his political career for. According to most of the analysts, it cannot be achieved what IK is after through these tactics of letting government breath for while and then threaten to march ahead on the state offices. I believe in my poor opinion, what ever IK is saying is right, just and true even most of his opponents would agree in their hearts, but even today if IK goes marching into the red zone with all his supporters following him, what is going to be the outcome of it. What Next; is the question which haunts us all. IK being a man of principals and playing some things safe even when the need was for hard line moves as sampled in his speech on 17th August where he called for a Civil Disobedience movement, would tend to avoid conflict or even if given a chance of taking over would avoid and settle to let things be solved constitutionally. It would lead to a massive disappointment in his supporters. The nations as a whole is watching every move he makes, every word he speaks to identify some ray of hope not just to get rid of Nawaz Shareef NS government but to cleanse the system once and for all. If the same constitutional way is followed, the system again would let it slip into the hands of the same people against whom these thousands have marched for days. I am not an anarchist nor I want my people to get harm but the only solution would be to cleanse the system through a revolutionary march towards the VIP zone, in mood of taking over and taking charge. But that cannot be the case in this century. The role of Pak army here needs to be taken into account too to see where does the army stand after todays movement of masses. Army is going to play a major role here but apparently it seems it shall not indulge directly rather dictate its terms to who ever would be taking charge after the fall of NS regime.

Toady IK needs to keep his calm and let the nation decide for itself rather than dictating his words to them. He has taken up a great responsibility of creating that new Pakistan for which we have been crying for our whole lives.  It is up to him now and only IK, to give this nation hope of a true change from which we all have been deprived off in 2013 general elections. I guess the masses of thousands gathered in Islamabad would decide their fate today. The government would not dare to have any conflict with them as it would  assure its downfall for good. Or if IK decides something against its will, then the worst would happen and he would have to pack his bags and leave politics for good.

19th August, 2014 truly is a day that might lead to the creation of a Pakistan that Iqbal dreamt and Jinnah struggled for. It might lead to the creation of true Naya Pakistan which IK and millions would want it to be. The Pakistan where every man is treated equally and justly, where every soul is a human being and considered valuable, where the green passport be once again recognized as a sign of pride and where the value of a soul is more than a dollar.

May Allah keep us safe and our nation safer. May Allah guide those who have taken up the responsibility to create THE PAKISTAN, the land of pure.


IK and Change Again

imran-khan-twitterIs it for real this time again? This question arises in mind looking at the mammoth crowds surrounding Imran Khan (IK) and other waiting for him at the gates of the twin cities; sleeping in the open and eating dall chawal at 7 in the morning from food karts. I wonder, is it the agenda and the slogan that is driving this crowd of proud Pakistanis to leave all behind and take part in the PTI’s rally or is it once again the charismatic personality of IK that is driving them crazy. Rationally speaking, if PTI had doubts about the whole electoral process then they should not have taken to the roads without full prove of rigging in 2013; rather they should have taken it a bit slow and by slow I mean give people and the critics something to shut their mouths about and provide solid grounds for the rally to take flight. I wonder if IK is thinking the same as Adolf Hitler when Mussolini over threw the Italian government through his Black Shirt Army and Hitler himself tried to overthrow the German government just a few months later in Munich but had to eat dirt and got imprisoned. IK might be thinking the same, as was in Egypt or Turkey but we have countless loopholes in the system and that kind of movement would succeed only if the machinery working behind the government is sincere to this nation; which I doubt is. I myself would like this rally to end up on a positive side for the nation. Nawaz Shareef and his allies are in silence and in panic mode, giving childish statements and using cheap tactics. Shahbaz Shareef being heard that ‘people have rejected the PTI rally’. Sir, come out of your sPrime-Minister-Nawaz-Sharif1lumber, and watch your Lahore turn into reds and greens.

Again, one wonders, if the system does fall to PTI and resigns, what is going to be next after this, would there be an interim government , who is going to conduct the elections? the same election commission? or would there be an ordinance passed to restructure the whole electoral process? People taking part would be thinking that IK would be Prime Minister tomorrow when NS resigns but it doesn’t work that way. they would be coming back home all broken and tired, waiting for the next slogan from their leader and again wanting change and rallies for up coming elections which only Allah knows when and the whole 2013 shall be repeating itself. 

On other note my opinion here would be that we Pakistanis are a nation who would want change even if IK had stepped out a month from the elections. We are a nation who loves to hear breaking news, spread sensations and be part of something other than our daily routines. This time its not the inflation, its not the ideology behind the 995032_10152356829109527_7329914598068779933_nmovement but rather the quest to have garma garmi in the country. Politically PTI has a  stance being the major party of the country who got slummed in the elections not by people but by the system and what IK is crying for is what we all would like to know. 

I pray for, may Allah keep us all safe and our country safer. I pray for the betterment of this nation.
