Operation Cleanup

 

Bravo  Gen. Raheel Sharif for not only dismissing the corrupt generals, brigadiers, colonels and majors but also recovering the ill gotten wealth from them.  Sir, we have a large army and there could be quite a few more such corrupts around, especially among those who have had the opportunity of serving in or with the civil departments.  May I suggest that an Operation Cleanup be launched wherein all serving and retired military officers of the three services be asked to make confessional statements of any corruption done by them. Those who make honest confession and reimburse the ill gotten monies to the exchequer be treated leniently and only dismissed from the service.  But those officers who indulged in corruption and did not make the confessional statement, and are detected later, be court martialled and sentenced to imprisonment along with confiscation of their  moveable and immoveable properties.

 

May be the Provincial and the Federal governments also follow suite and we have a pure and Pak Pakistan. 

 

Sir, you will do this hapless nation a great Messianic favour.

Women Bill and the Clergy

 

Is it not paradoxical that while our constitution empowers the parliament  as the supreme body a few clergy men are trying to declare a bill passed its democratically elected members as unIslamic and therefore unconstitutional ?!  Who are they to decide what is constitutional or not?  Do the parliamentarians who have the mandate of the masses not know what is good or bad for those who have elected them to power? The case in point is enactment of the “Protection of the Women Bill” which was passed by the Punjab assembly and is applicable to the province of the Punjab only. However, a few religious leaders of KPK, Balochistan and Sindh are in the forefront for its immediate withdrawal.

 Their protestations now and giving of any deadlines for its withdrawal tantamount to undemocratic measures and the government of the Punjab would do well not to yield to their such demands. There are hundreds of thousands who have appreciated passing of the bill which portends well for the future of a forward looking and progressive Pakistan.

Kamal’s Allegations by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

Mustafa Kamal’s Miracle in Karachi,Pakistan

Kamal’s Allegations

 

Mustafa Kamal’s press conference of March 3rd was no less than a bomb shell dropped by him to decimate the MQM Chief Altaf Bhai and the party itself too in the process. The most damaging allegation was that of the MQM receiving funds from the Indian RAW for the last twenty years!  According to him the PPP government Interior minister Mr. Rehman Malik was also in know of such funding by the RAW of the MQM. If it is true then would it not be presumable that the other higher ups in the then PPP hierarchy would have been also privy to such information?! And … and … If yes, then why did they not take any action on such a subversive activity?!   The mere thought of such a horrendous  possibility is enough to send a chill down the spine of an ordinary Pakistani whose confidence is shaken beyond repairs in the politicians and the political parties who can for their own interests risk the very survival and the integrity of the country itself!!  

 

The allegations have evoked mixed reaction from various political parties, PTI asking for a probe by a judicial commission while the ruling party advocating to disregard it for lack of any documentary evidence.  One also wonders why is the MQM contented with the thought that the Kamal Press Conference balloon would be deflated soon and they are not suing him for libel and defamation in a court of law?  Or, does the MQM fear that more beans shall be spilled, which is bound to happen, when the respondents would try to prove the allegations made by them?!

 

Oh God Almighty please save Pakistan.

Lawyers Protest Qadri Hanging

Lawyers Protest Qadri Hanging

 

The Bar Council and other lawyers are observing strike and black day to protest against the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri – the murderer of late Governor Salman Taseer. Does it not look strange that the very entity whose sole purpose is to ensure justice to a victim is protesting against the hanging of a murderer?  It is also sad to see at times some of the black coats totting guns in the courts premises, locking up the court rooms – at times even with the judges inside, scuffle and brawl with the police and resorting to other unlawful acts!  If the providers of the law start taking the law in their own hands then where would one find the justice and the principled and respectable judicial system in Pakistan?!

WOMEN PROTECTION BILL

Women Protection Bill

 

Maulana Fazlur Rehman has ridiculed the Punjab Assembly for passing the women protection bill which provides protection and legal recourse to the women victim of domestic violence.

Surprisingly some other religio-political parties have also joined the JUI (F) in condemning the bill calling it unIslamic and against Shariah.  

May I ask them :

(1)   By calling this law unIslamic, do they mean that beating up, thrashing, torturing and harassing of women folk is Islamic?

(2)   Or, do they want that the chauvinistic macho mustachioed be allowed to keep thrashing and flogging the weaker sex with complete impunity? 

I am sure their answer to the above would be a ‘no’.  Then what do they have to fear or object to in implementing the law protecting the women against violence to them?
