Blame Game Never Brings Change


Blame Game Never Brings Change

Let us not seek the PPP’s answer or the PML (N)’s stand , but let us all wait for the right one. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future. PTI has won elections in KP and able to created their government. Now this is a time for PTI to deliver work they promised to deliver before the elections. Remember If you don’t do your part, please don’t blame others this time.

 

This is the mistake Imran Khan is making so far. Unfortunately, Imran Khan is still doing the politics of blaming others. PTI again did not accept election results. Even though during last elections campaigned, Imran Khan claimed that PTI supports like a big Tsunami which will wipe out everything.

 

 

It is obvious Imran Khan does not know what Tsunami is. If their support was equivalent to Tsunami, it would have wiped out all election results and just PTI, PTI everywhere.

 
In 2008, the people of Pakistan were witness to one of the most successful and fair elections in the history of Pakistan. The dominant parties who were against President Mr. Musharraf at the time of the election won and closest ally of President Musharraf lost the battle.

 
This election was also boycotted by PTI. Again PTI blamed Musharraf for it. They thought Musharraf would not hold fair elections.

 
In the last government we had seen a series of long marches, demonstration by PTI against Drone attacks, Bomb blasts especially in KP. They blamed past government for everything.

 

 

Now PTI is running the show in KP. But unfortunately we are seeing more bomb blasts and drone attacks in KP than before. However, PTI is not holding any demonstration or long march. Their workers are not stopping NATO supply. Remember they had stopped the NATO supply in past government. Was it only for the votes? Who they will blame this time?

 

 

Presently, instead of concentrating their government in KP as he should be, Imran Khan is attending parties in the UK. Imran Khan won the election from one of constituencies of Peshawar. Has Imran Khan ever stayed in Peshawar for more than two days? How will he solve the issue of general people of his constituency without meeting needy people of his constituency? He won the election from Peshawar now it is his responsibility to live in his constituencies or even meet the people of his constituency on regular basis. Imran Khan is a big fan of west; he should remember all elected representatives in west have to meet the people of their constituencies on regular basis.

 

 

This is a part of the constitution. It is his duty to live in his constituency. I humbly request the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the Prime Minister of Pakistan to make sure that all elected members meet people of their constituency on regular basis. They should have opened office weekly or at least on a monthly basis. I advised to PTI to concentrate on their performance in KP, the people of KP voted you to bring peace in KP.

    From the tunes of tolling bells of goings, KpK is destined to become the grave-yard of Tsunami!

    Our Khan has failed to fix any of the problems he faced and no one else will come to solve them for him.
    He has already established the basis for a perception-less bad governance without any signs of resent. He is silent about violations against human rights, and not even thinking about engaging the terror-bull, even by tail, if not by horns. Rather, his cronies (and even himself) are running to hide with their own tails between their legs.

    It is evident his so called tsunami has failed to bring along any success in governance and wash ashore any much talked-about goodies for the people. He knows he will have to dig deep into the ocean bed below the tides and find the hidden gold saving face from the horrors of corruption dinosaurs.
    To start anything of the type, he will have to gather the will of people and transform it into a new rising wave of tsunami against the czars of corruption for their complete annihilation and eradication for good. Only then he would be in any position to ride the storm and wash the ruins of destruction left behind by the tsunami against corruption. Momentum gathered by democratic will of people in heralding good governance should then be diverted against other ills of the society. No doubt, such tsunami would become the corner stone of the nation’s march to the modern world. But, there are no tolling bells for any such move.

    Of course PTI should ‘concentrate on their performance in KP’ but that should not stop them or any other parties from politics in the rest of Pakistan….and yes IK should get out of the blame game as should MQM.

    Indeed Raza Rabbani and PPP have shown their mediocrity by boycotting the preidential election with extremely flimsy excuse – is this the best revenge of democracy – Pakistani style?!

      Given the traditions of religion, Election Commission itself shoud have been sensitive to the timing of the presidential election date. Could the SC have come to any other decision even if it had heard the whole of Pakistan?

      I heard Mr Rabbani in an interview last night and was dissappointed to hear what came to me as inverted snobbery, biggoted attitude towards white skin and rather flawed justification for making education a provincial matter in the 18th amendment.

      His excuse that shorthening the campaign time undermines his chances is a shallow one too, knowing well that PML(N) has the majority in the electoral college and no one votes accross party lines according to conscience as the law is structred any opposing candidate is more a symbolism.

      Perhaps the accolades awarded to Mr Rabbani, like to Mr Aitizaz Ahsan, are too generous and perhaps these gentlemen are complicit in the demise of the PPP as they have not raised their voices enough against the goings on in the party.

    Do remember to raise this point to PTI executive when PML -N government is criticised in the centre.

      Sorry that cannot happen because IK is an exception he can be given time but not anyone less…

    Thank you for putting the record straight. Seems the biggest elephant being saved in this blog is not the on in the London parties that IK was attending (which of course he has every right to attend).

    IK should should allocate more time to his constituents as the author points out – but they happen to be in Rawalpindi. Perhaps the politicians will do away legally with the tradition of standing for election from multiple seats as it amounts to cheating the voters of the constituency you give up and promotes the personality cult at the expense of good democratic practices.

    “Hounehar baRhwa k chikney chikney paat”.
    Dear Mr. Zak, this is not to inflict any ‘zak’ to anybody but to do one’s rightful duty.
    I, along with my entire extended family had voted for PTI and now expect Imran to live his words of hounour to all his voters. Therefore, I am reminding him of his promises and the indications of intented actions are visible in the eyes of a person, much before his taking actual actions.
    I have taken my action and I want to see his promised reaction and for that, his course of action must be very visible

    Blaming the judges would certainly not bring change. How the mighty fll fromtheir highs – now Imrn Khan falls to te same lows as the rest of the Pakistani keaders with little respect fir the law. How crass that Imran Khan thinks because he went to jail for 8 days in the cause of lawyers’ movement, it earns him special dispensation in the higher courts, from application of the law of the land.

    Mr Khan, it does not belittle you to say sorry for you words – much better to do that then stretching your explanation too far for your own ego’s sake ad making a fool of yourself. Any unstability resulting from your arrogance will only add your name to that long list of morons who have caused huge damage to the country – time to show that you are a leader of Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf and not Pakistan ‘Tareek’ Insaaf! by submitting to the law – in the court it is not your thinking in what you said is right or wrong but the judges’ decision that matters!

    Is it prejudice to point out an error? As you know from my views here that my interest is not in ANY politician’s cult, so perhaps you will oblige by pointing out the unjust element in my critique.

    I think SC (along with its error in the presidential election date) has been overly generous with IK in the matter and he has been overly stubborn. IK should avoid press conferences or references on the matter and should apologise to set and example and gain the high moral ground – else the same youth he hot interested in politics, will become a liability for the country – blogs attended by the PTI youth don’t paint a pretty picture!

  • M.Saeed

    Imran’s greatest blunder is his continued refusal to make “political peace” with his companions in politics.
    According to one of the beautiful sayings of Hazrat Ali (kaw), “good behavior is a wealth that it can buy anything in the world without spending even a whisker of it”.
    Imran can easily win against staunchest of his opponents simply by adopting an appropriate outlook. Castles of hate can fall under well weighted gentle and humane words.

    Having geard his speech and later interviews, it is an indictment till IK has the grace to admit his error. Being an Oxford graduate means nothing if one has not learnt the connotations and the SC has not invited him their because some judges feel personally aggrieved – he referred to the institution as a whole not any particular judge.

    ZAB and Benazir too were Oxford graduates – one. Major player in the division of Pakistan and the other letting loose a flood of corruption. Surely, you will find some very dubious characters sent down by Oxford – why should IK be treated differently when it comes to being gauged against any standard. Please don’t construe personal support for him but suddenly NS with his GC attendance stands out!

    Would you be willing to apply the term ‘shameful’ to IK’s own past conduct (you know what I mean)- because it has been more than shameful – and as someone who rightly places their leaders at the high altar, would you not expect the highest moral standard from your leader in his personal life too – after all they set course for deciding the followers’ lives.

    If you agree eith Najam Sethi’s anlysis then I’m perplexed why dwell in defending the use of term ‘shameful’ inte context IK used for te judiciary. Remember under the 2009 Judicial policy, the judiciary was no longer supposed to be part of the election processes and it was IK who was insisting upon judicial involvement in the election processes. Not that I necessarily agree with the way 62/63 us and was being applied, IK being allowed to contest the elections also contradicts thise clauses.

    Are we that insecure in ourselves that we turn our political leaders in to demigods, rising in level if they have a degree from Oxford or Harvard, which sholud make them immune to critique from te lesser mortals?!

    Reading “Mudai Chust Gawah Sust” bouts here between otherwise very learned and sensible few on this site, I tend to come in without taking sides and present some simple facts for analyzing some of the moot-points with due consideration:

    - There is a scientifically confirmed reality called “genetic continuity”. It is the same called “Nasab” and explains that, a person can change his disposition but not his genetic-code carrying everything related to that person’s nature and behavior in life.

    - ZAB was a son of Lakhi Bai and Shahnawaz.

    - Benazir Bhutto was the daughter of ZAB, who married AAZ, a former Box-office tout of his father’s BambinoCinema and crook of the highest order, who specializes in erasing all his foot marks cleverly with his tail on every gait.

    - Imran Khan, son of a “Wapda Chief Engineer” dismissed on mega-corruption charges, being his only son, received pompous upbringing based upon questionable beyond the limit resources. He was educated in the institutions reserved only for the Nawabs and Jagirdars and Oxford is no any exception.

    - Nawaz Sharif is son of a self made businessman-father who came as refugee from India at Partition, worked hard as a “Lohaar” and rose to the top level in steel industry in Pakistan. His Ittefaq Foundries and Mills wasnationalized by Bhutto, forcing him to migrate to the M.E, where he re-established and made his mark. NawazSharif got admission into the legendary “Government College Lahore” on merits and graduated.

    Now, let us see who carries the best genes among these people to rely upon because, genetic continuity is what really counts.
    “A snake can change its skin but not its disposition”.

      Is the expectation that true education should raise one above their genetic dispositions (at least mentally) misplaced? Else most of us would still be marauding/killing/pillaging/burying daughters alive etc…..Unfortunately, be attach more value to the brand these days instead of the finished product – No doubt you would have come across many a unbranded souls who never attended a renowned university but are lot more learned and educated then the ZABs/Sharifs or Khans, the most enlightening thing about them bing their humility unlike us lesser mortals with our big egos!

      • M.Saeed

        Simple answer is: Allah’s Rasul (PBUH) tells us to marry for raising our “praiseworthy next generations”, only and only considering “Hasab and Nasab” of the would be spouse!
