Welcome to Mr. Zardari’s Pakistan

Well, against all odds he is here and reality is he is here to stay. He got his votes and it’s time to move on for rest of us. We can humiliate him in our drawing rooms. We can ridicule him on our blogs. we can even do his character assassination if we want. but all this proved a pointless waste of time. Benazir actually gave Pakistan as her last dowry gift to her widower. But I don’t think even she would have ever thought that Mr. Zardari would one day become “President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan”. In fact when I voted for PPP in last election, I never thought that PPP will make such a mockery of the mandate given by people of Pakistan.

People’s mandate is never a “Licence to Kill”. Also the worst form of democracy is always better than best of  all dictatorships. I will take my revenge in next election. What a revenge that will be… When I will come out of polling booth, I will definitely shout Mr. Zardari’s  favorite quote: ” Democracy is best Revenge”

It has been quite some time since I made a good Spartan joke. (Yes! I have nothing better to do!)

This is Zardari's Pakistan

Who will become the President?

I can not agree more with what A for PineApple said in this post about zardari

Allah save te country now … I wonder how many months it’ll take to have the whole country sold .. you think it can be done in Days?

I wonder if he has already struck a deal with americans and he is just here to ensure delivery on time (US Elections)…

That’s all folks at least for today…

    Say whatever you want to say abt Zardari, but the ‘fact’ is that has been elected through a democratic process. Now if anyone is to be blame then its the people of Pakistan who elected PPP as the major party in this election.

    We all know the history of Zardari, but still I would pray to Allah to show him the right path and put His fear in his heart. Miracles do happen my friends!!!

    One of my friend was predicting that Zardari have come into Policitics via a big game. As US map for pakistan for 2010, show that NWFP and Baluchistan is conqurerd by Afghanistan and to make such things possible
    the crisis of pakistan is according to the path.
    The people of pakistan are in depth of debth while law and policitics are
    unstable. With Mr.Zardari as president and Gilani as prime minister how the country will walk on path of success.
    On one side, US attack on pakistan soil and army sitting quietly show the drama. The Mullahs of NWFP have said in the news that current crisis
    give rise to the history situation of separation of east pakistan.

    Yes, you are right we can say anything on blog or inside of room yelling
    at the walls but reality is we are speaking to our ownself.Unfortunately,
    Pakistan from being have been run by the landlords starting back from 1947. The Business Men are the new name Landlords. When Pakistan was established, the landlords have greatest profits of all times in occuping
    land and then selling out to make money. So reality is this, that still
    we are in that deep shit that our country is run by Rich Landlords and poor people of pakistan have no choice except to suffer in the name of
    policitics, law, Islam, terrorism and US led war on terrorism.

    However, the society is corrupted by corruption, lawlessness and terrorist in the name suiciders are the main elements of current situation. We will the see the future if we are not killed but believe me
    the future of our next generation according to current situation
    not looks good! and people are can left pakistan already did & setttled!
    All i can wish is atleast wtever happens but atleast name of Muslims and
    Islam is not spoiled in the name of Pakistan.

    Zardari or no Zardari here are some common sense things we as nation ought to do;

    1/ Declare Osam bin Ladin / Al-Qaeda and their sympathisers #1 public enemies. Present a united front against terrorism / terrorist acts.

    2/ Taking responsibility for our own actions and stop blaming every thing on America ( a national past time). After all we as a country are as responsible for the mess in the North as any body else.

    3/ De-politicise our society and let our middle class do what its suppose to do i.e. work hard and take this nation forward. For once we should realize that folks in Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Chechniya and Kosovo etc. are capable of fighting their own fights and dont give a damn about what happens in this country.

    For those who worry too much about loot and plunder, please, rest assured that the Sharif & Zardari feats of the 90’s cannot be repeated, mainly because our financial institutions have been privatised and thus been secured. They cannot touch the State bank unless they try to fiddle with the constitution. What remains is traditional plot & permit gone are the days of distributing Taxi’s at the Nation’s expense or pressurizing Bank Executives to dish out huge un-secured loans.

    @ Kami, I liked your post.

    But there is only one question in my mind, that I dont see any new leadership appearing in near future …….. then considering the three options we have which one is most loyal to Pakistan, Mr. Sharif, Mr. Zardari or Mr. Musharaf?

    @ Asim Khan:
    hey man.. according to your friend’s prediction.. US is late then..
    coz I heard that the map of 2006 does not have the geographical distinction of Pakistan..
    so please, try to avoid such things and its the time for each Pakistani to show responsibility..
    I don’t believe America or anyone else is our enemy..
    we are the worst enemies of our country..

    just be united and follow (at least) the 3 point agenda given by "Kaami"..

    Its right the rulers are according to the people of that country but I also heard somewhere that "United we stand.. divided we fall"
    what ‘they’ did is just divided us..

    be optimistic and be loyal, at least to yourself..

    blaming each other has brought us here..
    whether its Zardari or anyone, we must be a nation..
    there’s no Sarhadi (Pathans), no Balochi, no Sindhi n no Punjabi all are Pakistanis..

    @tzaidi first of all Musharraf though my personal preference is not an option any more. However, currently What I see on political landscape is the re-alignment of the right and the left. the battle lines are being drawn as they should be i.e. the secular parties on one side, which include PPP, ANP, MQM and the Sindhi/Balloach Nationalists. On the other side will be the religous right including PML, Jamaat-e-Islami, PTI and others.

    In Sindh and Balloach speeking Balochistan religous right out of the picture. In Karachi MQM are firmly in place and are doing an amazing job through their enterprising Mayor and young leadership, unfortunately, the areas of contention in the future would be Punjab and NWFP, where fanatics have considerable penetration.

    Coming back to your question, for me personalities at the helm dont matter. In fact we would be better off not subscribing to any personality cult. We just need a central govt which is small in size and scope, maintains stability and encourages business. In fact its the business that should be running the country, dictating foreign and domestic policies – This my friend is the formula for success of nations in the modern day and age.
