What a shame. The people who looted this country & who should be in jail or hangged are free & protected by police.
The man who gave Pakistan one of the very few glorious moments in our history, build hospital, never stole from the people is behind bar.
The fight will go on...
That is our promise to Imran Khan.

The purpose is not to support any politicians here, we have to choose someone who is best in the lot. We can not afford a leader like Musharaf who does not have sense to protect our dignity as a nation and he has proven to the world that we are not good people and we must need morans like him to control us. He is doing the same thing to Pakistani nation, what Bush is doing to Muslim world. Same Ideas and same ways to handle them. What kind of economic growth he has brought to Pakistan, which is not benefiting any common man? Salaries of MNAs and MPAs are raising every day but common man life is becoming like hell. Can you guys believe that tomato, which used to be given free when you buy vegetable is now above 100 Rupees per Kilogram. Musharaf is doing everything to protect his government and he has no focus on the issues of common man in Pakistan otherwise Issues like all eating grocery and other utilities have become so expensive that one can not even think of. We really need someone who has concerns more about problems of common man not his government. Musharaf created this extremist issue and now he will keep trying to solve it till that ass hole dies out of some natural or forced death because he is not at all interested to solve it. May ALLAH protect us and Pakistan.

I am proud of my Pakistani students for standing up for a just cause which is restoration of democracy. People are talking about ecenomic development in Pakistn. I think this is the biggest lie now a days. I visited pakistan after six years and was shocked to see the inflation that has taken place in those years. The prices of food and medicine was higher than Canada and average income of pakistanis as we all knw is 1000s percent less than Canadians. Pakistani Middle class is finding it very hard to have one square meal per day. Yet people talk about economic development. May be the rich has become filthy rich by corruption and collaboration with the corrupt regime.
Students go ahead with your struggle and please gain Pakistan some respect in the international community by restoring democracy. Don't listen to numbskull opportunists.
Regards,
Pakistani

There is clearly no rule of law in pakistan. A country destined for disaster ever since its independence. If one looks carefully at India and its advncements in technology, education and basic amenities, one can only assume that something has seriously gone wrong. Jinna represented the same problem faced even today, a dream of a great nation which was never possible. Imran Khan has made the mistake of airing his views in a nation where freeedom of expression is simply not valued. Thus even though I respect Imran Khan one has to accept the fact that such opinions against the government were unacceptable. However, Imran ignored this at his own peril. A peril that the nation of Pakistan is suffering from since the partion of 1947 from India.

what is the goal of the protests?

S. said...

The student movement does not support any politicians. It does condemn any kind of injustice, oppression, or unfair treatment.
The boom in Pakistan's economy is due to the HUGE amounts of aid flowing into the country.
Furthermore, Musharraf has done a great deal to incur the wrath of every citizen of Pakistan.

Anonymous said...

So, if someone from outside the country does not hold a high opinion of the immature brat, then it is a negative comment?

That would suggest that you are in favor of a dictatorship not democracy?

Or do you think that the definition of democracy means your own dictatorship versus that of General Musharraf??

Hello Students,

A man who cannot even keep his own family together and raise his own children is then capable of being a moral compass in guiding the pakistani youth? He is the shining beacon of hope to millions when his own children are being brought up by Western/Jewish traditions???
Do they live full time in Pakistan? are they being brought up by Muslim Customs?? And for that matter did Saint Imran Khan live the majority of his own life by Muslim customs? Does he even know what they are???

Anonymous said...

its high for the peolpe of pakistan to come out to streets We as students have a duty to protect are country from these plunderers and looters who call themselves as leaders. Our aggression & movement should not only target musharraf but also his allies..the ruling party. They legtimized his rule and have played a major role in bringing pakistan to this satge. I sincerely think that it is not time for blogging or discussing matters on net but to come out to streets and let them know that we cannot be pushed around any more. It is time we start owning our country.

I am not a Pakistani but I am surprised why Pakistan is in this state of affairs. People of Pakistan have to search a better solution for all this going on in their country. I think Imran Khan is a good person and has done a lot for a country. If he would have been selfish like any other celebrity, he would have been making money in commercials and would have lived in Pakistan or any other country and not to bother about the affairs. I think he is honest and a person who feels strongly about his country and wants to work towards progress of his country. I feel sorry about him. Question: Why he has to do all this for a country where people never cares about his contribution? ..

Fine so you did good in cricket-Thank you for that.

None of us are perfect. We all have our human imperfections. Our intentions may be good yet we may not be able to deliver up to peoples' expectations. In that human journey, it is our intentions ("niyat") and efforts that define us more than the outcome. And Pervez Musharraf has done the BEST job for Pakistan in very challenging circumstances. Due to any number of negative and external forces the outcomes may not always have been perfect, but his intentions and efforts most certainly have been!! For that we SALUTE YOU SIR!!! And based on intentions, efforts and effectiveness Pakistan still needs him. For his critics, you have been allowed to voice your criticism in his time alone. Lest you forget,he saved the country and you from International ire (anger) six years ago because Pakistan was on a collision course to become what Iraq is (as early as October 2001).

Biggest damn tragedy in all of this is this megalomaniac. The guy up there said it right. Politics is just not Imran's forte'. He has aligned himself with the stealing thieving politicians and he hopes to bring justice. Where do you get off??(silly question actually) He was talking about hanging nawaz Sharif and Benazir not too long ago and now theyre his "friends"??
I support the student awakening and press freedom but make no mistake ONLY THE ARMY CAN KILL THE MONSTER OF EXTREMISM THAT IT CREATED. Let that be done and when the bombs are silent then we'll talk democracy. And please stop kissing up to those washed up quasi-hippies from the sixties. The hell is wrong witchu??

Anonymous said...

If Imran Khan is so selfless, what has he done for Pakistan?? What committees has he served on?? What social and economic reforms has he introduced? or was planning on doing so?? What was his game plan to heip the poor of the country??

The only thing I can remember of his political contribution was always whining (most irratingly so) about the government on and on and on!! When you do not have any constructive options or ideas to offer please shut up!!

Therefore, so glad that he is at least shut up where one does not have to listen to him whine like a snivelling coward that he is.

As for not doing commercials...maybe no one really needed his services since he had become so aged and haggard.

i wonder why people are getting so personal against imran khan. 'a man who cudnt hold his family together?'.. wats that got to do with ANYthing? you mean someone who gets divorced does not have the right to be a leader?...weird wavelength dudes..heh...zero tolerance...that's us pakistanis in a nutshell...and poor students...the educated minority...still holding fort against injustice and 'jihalat' of the highest order...do not give up!!my salams to you all.

Anonymous said...

Ambreen,

It is not that if you are divorced you cannot be a leader!

Point is, if you are indifferent to your children's upbringing and cannot make them a priority then what can you do for the millions of children in the nation?

And, it is only a viewpoint, not 'jihalat' as you say. Every one is entitled to their opinion. Tolerance for an opinion different than yours isn't that what Democracy is all about.

imran khan is not a saint but his intentions are good. he may not have accomplished much in the last 11 years as a politician, but he's the youngest of the political lot. the rest have been at it almost all their lives cuz they were born in a political family. his achievements as a politician are not widely known since he doesnt waste money running ads on tv (like the parha likha punjab campaign). But in the recent interview with hamid mir, he highlighted 2 of the things which in his opinion were very big achievements. He's built a technical college in his home village, covering 5 of the poorest districts. He's affiliated it with the Bradford university in UK and hopes to turn it into a university. This was also covered by a CNN show called Imran Khan: Revealed (available on youtube). The other thing he mentioned was building a 68 km road network in some remote northern part of the country (cant remember which area exactly). He collected funds for it and when the money ran out, the city govt completed the job. He spent Rs.50,000 per km while the city govt spent 28 lakhs (yes that is lakhs) per km.

You do not have to like Imran Khan to criticize what has been done to him. The way he was man handled is really shameful and calls for protest on our part. Today it was him tomorrow it will be someone else how long can we sit and watch this drama unfolds.

If Mr.Khan was not looking to be manhandled, then he should not have taken irresponsible steps and put himself in that situation in the first place!!

If he is innocent and full of integrity, he would have nothing to be afraid of and should have been arrested like a man. Instead, he ran off like a whining schoolboy afraid of punishment for his rowdy and irresponsible behavior. Then he should have stayed in hiding instead of pulling his jack in the box routine. His behavior has all the hallmarks of a loud bully who is a coward at heart. You can't help but lose respect for him. What a shame all the glory he brought in thru cricket, he has squandered away with his irresponsible and immature political affiliations and behavior. VERY SAD!!

Looking for Ritzy Red Ghararas said...

I see that army supporters/agents are catching up to the blogging world - I've never seen so much support for the army or for bringing peace in Pakistan via army in any post before.


The army should have no role in politics as a principle - because as most principles go, there is a certain wisdom behind it. Armies are trained to fight not trained to bring political solutions. In a country with diverse factions and groupings as Pakistan, we need political solutions, dialogue and inclusion of all stakeholders (among the people) instead of siding with a few and alienating others. Historically, economically and politically - the army is a class of its own with its own SPECIAL ECONOMIC INTERESTS. It does'nt get into power to fix the nation - it gets in to protect its investments. It doesn't need to introduce dialogue or redistribute wealth - they have NO INCENTIVE for that. But they have incentives (in the form of industries) to create more capital and wealth for themselves.

so is it a secret that in every military regime - be it Ayub, Zia or Musharraf - inflation has skyrocketed and the middle and lower class has been reduced to eating 1-2 square meals a day? All three military regimes have provided with 7 percent growth rates for pakistan - highest in history. BUT GUESS WHAT? That growth is only for rich people - they get richer. It does not get spent on the common man in health and education. The gaps between rich and poor have always increased in military regime.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHY?
Military govts remove law from society - not restore it. They subvert the law. THEY HAVE TO. Otherwise they would be treated equally as other normal citizens. They cannot have that. They are too rich and too 'special' in their minds. No checks and balances please, the army knows best!

Anonymous said...

So, if someone offers a viewpoint different than what you were hoping for than they are an army or mqm supporter?

I do not have any army or mqm links or connections.

Too many army people on this blog. Seems like ISI has started a "blog" wing too. I wonder how they got so much time, time out of arresting political and human rights activists and sending girls to judges so they can videotape them. Our army and ISI dont get the recognition in the world that they deserve. Name one intelligence agency in the world that can handle so many areas with such proficiency and passion. I salute our army and ISI. :)

its true that Edhi has done great things for Pakistan but he cant change the society. if he could, Khi would be a lot different now. he cant get justice for people, cant help out with inflation etc. u can do social work all your life, but you can never make the same difference as you could if you are in the govt. that is why IK joined politics. he could have carried on his charity work, built more hospitals etc, not enter the dirty world of politics. he's here only cuz he REALLY wants to make the big difference.
what u have to understand is if he is making alliances with corrupt politicians like BB and NS is because he cannot do it alone. His party is too young and frail to do the things it wants to do. BB and NS's parties are very well established with a large voter base. If he chooses to temporarily align himself with such ppl doesnt mean "he's getting in bed with them" (which i think could be expressed in a more civilized way so plz watch ure language) In order to reach you ultimate goal, u have to make some compromises. Him aligning with these corrupt ppl doesnt mean he condones what they have done in the past. he's only working towards bringing true democracy to the country and he cant do it alone, he needs them. so he's smart enough to realize that!

On the issue of skipping mush over for the likes of BB and Nawaz sharif as head of states......

If we know nawaz sharif and BB are the scum of the earth and kleptomaniacs, etc etc, then why amend the constitution to give them a third term. DON't!!! Don't vote for them and don't amend constitutions either. Choose someone else. Aitizaz Ahsan could be a strong contender for PPP. and I am sure there are others in PML -N. and of course Imran Khan as we know is a good contender too. If you didnt like previous corruption then don't vote for corruption - do not choose these people again.

As for whether you have the right to choose - thats the fight we need to continue fighting to restore our basic rights.

STOP BEING NAIVE! this world is not musharraf vs. BB no matter what the US media wants you and I to believe. This is about wanting accountable governments (which the army can never be) and having laws, courts and non-toady judges to protect our fundamental rights.

IK changed his path of life for the poor and struggling people of Pakistan, The man is courageous and he has the ingredients of a good leader. He might have been better off as an Army recruit than to be a cricketer, that seems like to be a good bypass for the absolute leader in Pak.
I grew up supporting bhotto all my life, I was in Pak. in 1990 Elections and was an important supporter of PPP candidate Mumtaz Khaloon (at times GS of PPP) &M. Dastageer in Sargodha, but that was past. Now I live here in USA and majority of Pakistani I interact with support IK over BB or NS. Bhotto was a great leader Pakistan ever had but BB is not, she is a failure and NS is a tested nut. IK will prevail one day, he offered a change for Pakistan like Bhotto did and now it is up to us to give him a chance or not, But I am sure he will have my vote.
Long live Imran Khan.

Imran Khan is our best hope right now. Musharraf, BB, NS, Qazi and Altaf are dictator+(megalomaniac terrorist), looter, wimp, hypocrite and terrorsit respectively.
They are all exposed. Whether Imran haters believe it or not, but the truth of the matter is that Imran is getting immense popularity. I live in Lahore and everyone around here is all praise for Imran these days. Even back in my remote village people love Imran.
All the arguments against Imran are childish. He's the only one who has the guts to say what is in the best interest of the nation. You may put up as many messages as you like but you can't hide the truth.
