BB troubles DHA residents


Benazir is giving a tough time to DHA residents in particular and Lahorites in general. There have been huge traffic jams, extra security measures, heavy deployment of cops and heavy VIP movement in the city.

    The lady and her entourage of international journalists, photographers and security personnel reminds me of Lucky Irani Circus
    Setting up camp one city after another. But this enterprise will fail because it does not make business sense, with the circus people come in hordes and pay to watch your show. However, with BB it seems like the only audience she has right now are the ones traveling with her. She has finally realized this and is making frantic calls to those she rather not speak, but isn’t it too late?

    I hope the common sense that prevails in the country; remains and people get a chance to express their resentment / approval via the elections, that’s the only goal worth fighting for.

    How apolitical can our educated youth can get. All they care about is the traffic jams while the country rots in dictatorship. But why should they care? its not their problem, class awareness is deeply rooted even in most apolitical societies.

    Who is rotting and where? The country was moving forward when some body some where tried to apply the brakes, but they will not succeed because the people are not dumb.

    Talibaan – they were at our doorstep in Lal Masjid. they openly challenged us and when finally govt took action, hue and cry was raised and the screwed up molvi’s were made heroes. Videos were posted and poems were written – such hypocrats.

    There is finally curfew in Swat, with MMA out of the way our Jawans are moving in with full authority and no ambighouity in the mission, its time for the nation to support them, like all civilized Nations do. Oppose Mush as much you like but support and press govt for firm action.

    BABAR why should my precious time be wasted by someone who doesnt earns an honest living?

    @kami: why sawat and northern areas operation were started? in order to give safe back to USA in afghanistan?

    These tribes are living there since old ages and they never caused loss to pakistan but all of sudden mush. realized oh, the terrorists and ppl like u came out and shouting “kill em”.

    Our country is moving towards a disaster only due to ppl like u not molvis mind u.

    Now TAKE the mush!

    As far as firm action is concerned, do u know why 300 soldiers surrendered and wat wereh their comments for TALIBANS? they honoured talibans. One of them even said that

    “From now on, i will not do govt. job. These are our brothers.”

    P.S dont write those long and crappy comments which waste our time.

    @Kami, Kudos to your wishful thinking. Lets have a bet on it. They wont do anything permanent about Talibans. Have you ever seen a patient in ICU unpluging their own oxygen pipe?

    Speaking of BB… have you guys read about her letter dated 1990 that has surfaced? If it is true, then boy oh boy!

    These tribes are living there since old ages and they never caused loss to pakistan but all of sudden mush. realized oh, the terrorists and ppl like u came out and shouting “kill em”.

    These tribes are one of the main reasons that we are in this mess. It was alright as long as they called themselves “Azaad Afghan Qabail” and gave refuge to criminals plus indulged on heroin and weapons trade. Then after Afghan war in Zia’s time they travelled further south, took over transport and police in our major cities, dealt in automatic weapons / drugs and turned our beautiful cities into war zones. Pakistan laws have never been imposed on their lands; I am ok with that that too. But now after Lal Masjid they want to export their brand of Islam onto us, they want to black mail us with suicide bombers and death squads. Yes I know our millitary has been involved in the Afghan mess since the start and that misadventure has cost us dearly. Mush’s two year peace initiative has bore no fruit instead it has made them stronger.

    Now after emergency, with MMA and PTI out of the way I want my govt to take firm action, otherwise it will loose my support. The issue is very simple as one fellow blogger put it rather nicely, “If the writ of the govt of Pakistan cannot be imposed in the tribal areas then their screwed up writ cannot be allowed to take root on the main land”. It’s as simple as that and I know when worst comes to worse the language that these folks understand is guns and money. Their crooked Jirgaas have extracted enough honey, now its time for some serious talk.

    ADNAN Khan Sahib was not apprehended but was handed over by the students; Here is what he had to say as printed in News and Dawn;

    Imran Khan said he was betrayed by students who “collaborated” with the administration of Lahore’s Punjab University.

    “They took me into the office and then forced me out into a van. They did not allow me to be arrested publicly,” he said.

    Any guess which students org these students belonged too? Yes the one and only ……

    @ AAmir, its not BB, but your beloved hard earning general who is responsible for your commuting problems. Incidently, the constitution of Pakistan gives the right to move freely and assemble. Now please nobody tell me that they actually beleive in imperialsim, or may I say, the theocracy of the type where an Army chief knows best how the country should be corrected. Well I agree that Pakistani people are ****ing ignorant. But please let them go to hell and leave alone. Will ya? Or is this army appointed by God like Taliban or gora’s of the 18th century to tell people what their best interest is.

    @kami: lets put lal masjid aside fora moment. We all know it was a big drama played.

    Wat if those qabaailis are not treated forefully? Why use army action agianst them? why use our men against them?

    we can make a deal wid them as mush. did earlier and usa tried hard to broke that. That deal made a good impact until Madarsah at Bajaore was attacked and innocent children were killed. Dont tell me that those were terrorists, instead there were innocent childern who were getting up for Tahajuud.

    If brits. weere unable to control those tribal areas, sissies like mush. will not be able to do it ever and ever. Also remmeber that he is using out military. Using our military agianst our country men has showed u the results. karachi, lahore, isb, sawat, every thing has turned into firehole

    Peace is the only solution else our country will tear into pieces.

  15. KAMI (unregistered) on November 15th, 2007 @ 9:14 pm

    IUNKNOWN there is no firehole terrorists have used these tactics all over the world with no success. People have remained resolute to face off terror and the cities have flourished. If we keep on calling our President sissy, who has taken some very bold steps despite popular notions. Remember, its very easy to do what is popular but it takes guts to do what is right and there is fun living while being blackmailed by suicide bombers.

    Right now after the emergency not only the Generals but the rank and file of the millitary are ready to have a go at these folks, we have already de-moralized them enough — har cheez kee hud hotee hai. I find it very funny now you calling Lal Masjid a drama and being dimissive about it. I remember where you stood when the crisis was brewing. Be firm on what you stand for and if you are not sure then take some time off.

    Correction “there is no fun living……
