LETTER TO EDITOR : TV Anchors by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

LETTER TO EDITOR

January 8th, 2018

TV Anchors

There are scores of female anchor persons in the electronic media industry – each one prettier than the other and always attired in the designers’ latest, most stylish and expensive costumes that are ironically don only once and never repeated. One wonders who pays for such modish and trendy dresses, that are changed on daily basis? Certainly not the TV celebrity herself nor can she have a wardrobe large enough to hang them all in!  Whatever, it is not having a salutary effect on the economic health of most bread earners of the families especially those with honest means and no “maal e haram” to afford such extravaganzas.

I think it would make the life of all – including that of the anchors – much more easy and comfortable if the TV channels would introduce some simple, attractive and distinguishable looking exclusive uniforms for their respective anchors. It would not only promote austerity and modesty but also do away with the unnecessary competitiveness of outsmarting one another.

Army Chief and Economy By Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

LETTER TO EDITOR

October 17th, 2017

 

Army Chief and Economy

 

“Army Chief has right to comment on country’s economy, says Abbasi” reads the front page headlines of an English daily of Pakistan of date. One doesn’t know what would be the reaction of the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and are they both on the same page or not?  Apparently not.

 

 

 

 

Of course, the COAS has every right to speak not only on the deteriorating state of the economy but also on other aspects of the governance affecting directly the security of the country for which he is wholly responsible and answerable to the nation.  And, if we wish to talk to the elected representatives and the civilian supremacy etc. then for the information of all, who else in the country has a vote bank larger than that of the COAS, with 9 large constituencies (Corps) each comprising of nearly a lack of Pakistani NIC holding soldiers with right to vote and spread all over Pakistan from Chitral to Gwadar and Torkham to Dalbandin?  

Who represents such a great number of Pakistanis and could speak to protect their interests and rights? 

 

The answer is the COAS.

Real Democracy By Col.Riaz Jafri (Retd)

LETTER TO EDITOR

January 9th, 2017

Real Democracy

The PPP and PPP-P have set a real good example for all to follow by holding their intra party elections.  It’s another matter that no one offered to stand against the father(Zardari) and the son (Bilawal). But could they be blamed for it?

First Lady – Kulsoom Nawaz Rs 2,500,000 Yves St Laurent Purse

LETTER TO EDITOR

November 17th, 2016

Kulsoom Nawaz Rs 2,500,000 Yves St Laurent Purse

Kulsoom Nawaz Rs 2,500,000 Yves St Laurent Purse

First Lady

 

 

 

During the meeting between Mrs. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan  (the visiting First Lady of Turkey) and Mrs. Kalsoom Nawaz, with a Rs 2,500,000 Yves St Laurent Purse; the later was also being referred to as the First Lady (of Pakistan).  This became rather conspicuous when during the meeting with the wife of the Pakistan president, she was just referred to as Mrs. Mamnoon only. As per the universal protocol the First Lady is the wife of the Head of the State (President) and not that of the Head of the Government. However, Pakistan is the only country in the world where it is the other way around. This strange practice owes it birth to ZAB who while stepping down from the presidency to the premiership in 1972 brought all the presidential (Head of the State) protocol with him to the PM House.  It included flying of Pakistan Flag on his car, playing of the National Anthem on his official appearances, a Brigadier/Major General  Military Secretary, a couple of ADCs (grammatically AsDC) and similar some other presidential perks and privileges of course not forgetting the First Lady. In no other democratic country of the world including India the PM is entitled to any such privileges. But the Pakistan is Pakistan.

 

 

 

Incidentally, what if the wife happens to be the PM like Benazir Bhutto ?  Was AAZ called as the First Gentleman ?!

Enough is Enough by Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

Enough is Enough

 

Now that India has herself brought the Kashmir issue under international focus by stupidly claiming to have carried out surgical strikes against us, which has appropriately alarmed the world powers of its escalation into a fully fledged war between the two nuclear neighbouring states, Pakistan should make the most of this opportunity to its full advantage and to the advantage of our Kashmiri brethren.  In that an all out effort be made to demand the Plebiscite under the 1948 UN Resolution to settle the 68 year old long long outstanding dispute between the two countries due to which three conventional wars have already been fought and the fourth one that could be nuclear is in the offing. The very thought of such a war is horrendous as it would not remain confined to the subcontinent only but could engulf most of the rest of world also.  Along with it Pakistan must demand of India to stop the most inhumane kind of atrocities being perpetrated by the Indian armed fo! rces upon the helpless unarmed Kashmiris where even  old men, women and children are not being spared.  Pakistan must boldly and unequivocally make it known to the Indians in particular and the world powers in general that from here onwards Pakistan will lend its full moral, psychological and relief support in all forms and kinds to the Kashmiris across the border.  As a starters Pakistan could ask India to allow it an air corridor for its C-130 aircraft to drop relief goods and supplies to the beleaguered Kashmiris who are under the 80th day of the curfew imposed upon them.  It is high time that we also showed our some muscle to our adversary who is now talking of stopping our waters and isolating us from the comity of the nations.  I think time has come to call “Enough is Enough”.
