… Ke Dil Abhi Bharaa Nahi

As a Nation we are so fond of EVENTS aren’t we? In a more localistic manner it is the “Maujuu” we are so fond of. To create it as well as be audience to, we pounce at any opportunity we can get our hands onto. There’s an inner sadistic happiness that we all experience when something or the other is going on, not realising the fact what history its making for our generations to be cramming their way through.

It’ll look like more of the Modern World Crusades rather than the boring nice and sweet history we’ve studied. Quaid-e-Azam’s 14 Points, Allama Iqbal’s poetry and political amalgam, the Round Table Coneferences, HAH boring civilised people! What do you know, they may even be asked to Compare and Contrast the Crusades and the Pakistani History at some point in time. Interesting question for an exam!

We are giving our kids an opportunity to actually enjoy the compulsory subject of Pakistan Studies. And well look at Pervez Musharraf, he ships off our hero so simply? Cargoes him back to where he came from? What a pity, the entire media must be lamenting the thought of losing out on a “Rally” (Our new national favourite word) which would escort Nawaz Sharif from Islamabad to Lahore. The ruckus that would’ve followed, well it would have had to happen won’t it? It’s not a joke, after all one of the Sharif Brothers would’ve returned after a seven year exile. What did you say? People Dying? Well we can always resort to saying “Unn ka Waqt Aya tha (their time to die had arrived/ God’s will)” (Our very old national favourite idiom).

Not only are the Politicians heartless towards what legacy they’re leaving behind (who apparently seem to have a license to do that), the supporters who’re supposedly “Awaam” (masses/people/countrymen) are turning a blind eye towards how they are part of a massacre of their National Image in front of the rest of the world. We, as a nation look like a public case of “bad manners” to the people out there

When the President (in absolute power) of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf sends off the Wannabe Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif back to where he came from, the entertainment loving nation mourns over the fact of no “No Maujuu No Mela” Crisis and sings

“Abhi na jaao chhorr ker
Ke dil abhi bharaa nahi”

    LOLZZ, I know what you’re sayin, but this post isn’t about whether he should’ve come or not. Its just a bird’s eye view of what a nincompoop we’ve made out of our country. We’re the laughing stock really.

    Well, I am absolutely no fan of NS, but really the rather callous disregard of the Pakistan’s Constitution and Supreme Court’s order should, in my mind, have a lot more serious repercussions for those involved.

    May be in light of repeated defenestrations of the Law and the Constitution by various military dictators have created a perverse sense within the nation that these two of the most fundamental emblems of civilization (and democracy) are really just a big joke!

    Your sarcasm is certainly not misplaced but I feel the whole situation is much graver and lamentable.

    Why the hell people up and down the establishment machinery feel absolutely no moral compulsion to disregard illegal orders that go against the spirit and letter of the Constitution?

    It is like those American soldiers merrily pissing on the copies of Quran (Nauzubillah) in front of the Guantanamo Bay captives. They don’t believe that it is word of God, hence they had no real aversion to such a vile act.

    Similarly, our DG Rangers and others who actively participated in NS’s deportation are really pissing at the Constitution and contravening a direct order of the Supreme Court because they do consider it a meaningless, useless document (or an abstract concept).

    This should never have been done in the first place, when they allowed NS to leave and nor the second-time around, when they forced him to leave! Both are violations of the Law and equally condemnable!

    Perhaps we should really be singing the “song of silence, shame and embarrassment!”

    @A for[Pine]Apple: LOL yes it is one of my MANY favourite songs.

    @Exciton: Very VERY true, agree with weverything you mentioned above, every time the general makes a move, he’s defying the judiciary thus forcing people to not take any of these instuitutions seriously, basically yes leading us to the “have no fear!” state of mind when it comes to laws and regulations. This leads ultimately to a grotesque and devastated concept of right and wrong.

    Breaking News – Developing Story
    RIYADH (10 September 2007, 11:00 PM Saudi Time)

    The Custodian of the two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz Al Saud of the Kindom of Saudi Arabia is on the verge of announcing the crowning of his excellency Pervez Musharraf as ruling prince of Saudi Arabia’s 14th and Eastern-most province, Al-Baakistan.

    King Abdullah is so impresed with Pervez’s eager loyalty to the Kingdom that the King is also bestowing the Al Saud family name on him on a special honorary basis. For the record, the (designated) ruling prince’s new complete name shall be His Royal Highness Pervez Musharraf bin Abdel Aziz Al Saud. The King wishes to make this announcement by royal decree before the onset of the holy month of Ramadan.

    But there is a little hitch at this time. George W. Bush has stated his objections to such a scheme, claiming the United States has a prior right, given its Grandfather-Grandson relationship with the Saudi Kingdom in general and the Al Saud family in particular. In recognition of his valuable services rendered during the course of the Global War of Terror, Mr. Bush seeks to formally appoint Musharraf as Governor of the USA’s 51st state on his way back from an as-yet to-be-announced Christmas trip to the troops and Governor of Kabul, Hamid Karzail. He may also elevate Mr. Karzai to the office of the President of Afghanistan in the course of that trip.
