In continuation of crisis in Pakistan.
In continuation of crisis in Pakistan These days the media in Pakistan and the BBC in its relentless intermittent programs are creating an atmosphere which reminds one of prelude to situation similar that of 1969, 70 and 71. Instead of concentrating on what is happening in Karachi, where daily death toll by nature is equivalent to that caused by terrorism, unfortunately, those at the helm of affairs are of a quality worse than those of the days of the crisis leading to disintegration of country in 1970-71. In order to expel a political party per force shall be catastrophic. Instead of giving them a fight in political theatre they are being tarnished as bad dogs. I mean the MQM. The party is being portrayed a prototype of Awami League and its leader a reincarnation of Mujib-ur-Rehman. Is he so or not is a big question because we have seen begging on his door for support to form a government from Benazir Bhutto to Nawaz Sharif. If he really is of the sort he is being portrayed then those who with his support have been coming into power are his accomplice and equally guilty, therefore they have no right to rule the country. It is strange that during ‘Dharna’ crisis MQM’s support was as essential to Nawaz Sharif as transfusion of a blood to the patient at the verge of death. The tenure of Nawaz Sharif, after the giant session of parliament in which he was given support by all the political parties, is due to inter-alia MQM’s support. Nation be wise enough not to lend ear to such conspiracies which are hatched and floated only to perpetuate the rule of people having reins of the country in their hands at least since after debacle of Dhaka. If anti people performance is the touch stone than MQM, PML-N, PPP and the clerics are no different from one another. The rivals of MQM must find out another methodology to oust them from politics than what they had done in case of Mujib-ur-Rehman.
