Mirza (A Resented Politician Or a Patriot Pakistani)
Governance News Report 9th-September-2011
Conspiracies against the state of Pakistan are comprised on a huge list, since the independence, where internal and external elements played their part in weakening the structure of the state. Its not the first time they have been unveiled, there are myriad instances when these elements exposed publicly. There were no foolproof measures to make sure that these elements do not delude security institutions again. MQM and Rehman Malik as exposed by Mirza involved in activities contrary to the national interest, and using their authorities to assist non-state actors in Karachi violence. If all this true, there is a strong case against these individuals/ parties continuing the legacy of Mir Jahfir.
Mirza has accused MQM and Rehman Malik for assisting non-state actors involved in Karachi killings. Mirza's accusations have a greater credibility as compared to the opponents response, as Mirza remained home minister Sindh for three years, a close friend of President, and was ally of MQM. So the information he is carrying is backed up with documentary proof. Another weak point of MQM and Rehman Malik, it is that they already carries a very poor image in public as long as their integrity is concerned. List of accusations including a letter of MQM leader to UK Premier(asking for ISI to be disbanded) further exposing the MQM, as a terrorist group in Karachi assisted by land and drug Mafia. He further accused Alfat Hussain for supporting agenda of USA to break Pakistan. A binding force to the integrity of Zulfiqar Mirza is that he revealed these facts by making Quran(Muslim's holy book) as a witness on the day of 27th Ramazan(The most auspicious day in Islamic year).
MQM stance on the matter has been badly quelled by their dormancy during the on going media trial and allegations planted by Mirza. Earlier Faisal Sabzwari with poor body language tried to justify their position and denied any involvement in karachi unrest. After a very long pause MQM on 6th sep reiterated their stance on the matter and termed allegations baseless and a conspiracy against their party leadership. They have yet again failed to deliver their message convincingly in order to justify their position publicly. MQM did not clarify its position on the Chakra Goth incident, affiliation of Ajmal Pahari with the party, the murder of journalist Wali Khan Baber etc. Also MQM has failed to explain why Altaf Hussain does not comeback to exonerate himself from the charges of high treason, murder, kidnapping for ransom and other serious crimes. They have also denied that Altaf Hussain ever written any letter to Tony Blair, terming it as fake letter associated with Bahi to defame MQM.
This is a serious matter of national security, so we can not leave it as a media talk only. A judicial commission has to be constituted in order to investigate the matter, and findings should be made public in order to unveil the truth. Also culprits should brought to justice in order to make the national security foolproof. Political parties act need to be amended in order to build a transparent political system, and scan all the parties/members on the matrix of honesty, integrity, and patriotism.
Public as a largest stake holder in the affairs of the state, has a very enthusiastic but critical role by making the rulers to feel the importance of the matter. We need to be aware of all the national issues and play our part in strengthening Pakistan. Also its our sole responsibility not to play in the hands of politicians and other interest groups inflicting the national prestige. We need to draw our support from all these groups involved in jeopardizing peace and stability in the country, rather initiate struggle to eliminate these powers. Its only you who can make the Pakistan peaceful by recognizing your national obligations and cooperating with security institutions and media to expose criminals.
Judiciary headed by Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chowdry (The most honest judge of its time) has a very important role in dispensing justice to the citizens of Pakistan. Recently CJ is hearing its Suo moto notice case on violence in Karachi in Sindh high court, they have directed IG Police to carry out unbiased search operation against the terrorists in Karachi. Mirza yet again diverted to attention of judiciary to consider Karachi violence in another angle. In the recent wave of Mirza's allegations on the most important political celebrities, it is necessary for judiciary to stay focused and identify the facts in order to unveil and penalize the culprits.
Media has incredibly become a distinct power in Pakistan, and unprecedented pressure group in politics as well. Role of media in molding public perception and unveiling truth is vital for defining public will as well as national interest. A greater responsibility to on-air truthful and accurate information lies with media as well. It is very important for all media groups to remain neutral, and play their role in educating public by posing true image of the story, rather than exaggerating in order to get temporary benefits.
Who so ever is the culprit is, we need to find out the facts and it is indispensable to bring them to justice because a culture to malice each other in politics have kept on increasing over the years. Government has to play its role effectively in order to facilitate judiciary in fact finding process. Also severely punish if any one found guilty of links with the enemies of the state and patronizing them in weakening the structure of the state.
