Cat Comes out of the Bag and He Won!

So finally an end comes to 6th October 2007 fiasco … the day reserved for Pervez Musharraf’s return to the Presidential chair with a heavy favor-bank to his side. A victory that was known to every Pakistani even before the elections took place, many common Pakistanis aspired against it but they knew what’s in the bag for them any how!

Though, Supreme Court of Pakistan maintains that until the decisions on presidential contest case comes the decision should not be made official.

Unofficially, Gen. Pervez Musharaf IS the Elected President of Pakistan. So what’s next for us? Shedding of Uniform?? Appointment of New COAS?? Legally it should happen soon enough, 15th November is not very far.

The chair is in hand so the uniform must go now for a better image of Pakistan on the outer world and in eyes of those living here.

BBc reports, and we see everyday on various TV Channels, that this was one of the most expensive Presidential election campaign that was carried out. The dozens of Advertisements that we watch everyday on PTV, Geo, AAj, ARY etc., is a big claim to this. I wonder with Musharaf’s claim to High Progress rates in Pakistan, his hum-naam Pervaiz Illahi’s becoming quite an appearance too … so can he be our next PM??

Yesterday in Geo’s 9 PM news an interesting Glitch (intentional or unintentional) came up when the newsman said “Sadar Pervez Musharaf aur Wazeer e Azam Benazir Bhutto kay mabayn honay wali deal ….” … I laughed my heart out at this … a pointer??

Depending on the urgency SCP shows and the official declaration of Musharaf as the President of Pakistan … I sincerely hope that his next 5 year tenure (if it ever completes) be hopeful and good in the long run for Pakistan. IMO, the only hurdle between rigght decision making by Musharaf for past 2-3 years was the uncertainty about his future and the Army pressure on his nerves, now that he has got rid of them (almost), is it bad if we start hoping for a good era, like always??

How do YOU see Pakistan’s future now?? 2007 was a disappointment, can things change?

    The “PROCESS” of transition to complete democracy MUST continue… If it does it will start giving birth to new, fresh & educated leaders (InshaAllah) as thats what the nation needs.

    Having said that I believe we are moving in the right direction. Keep in mind this transition is happening for the first time, the landlordism is slowly but surely on its way out so we are seeing turbulence… The key would be that people stick to the slogan of democracy and media continues to question everything and everyone to ensure transparency.

    Napak Army won again..pakistan & civil societies lose big time.our generation fail to deliver hope to see better pakistan has died might be our new generation make pakistan better like we thought.

    Pakistan is neither an islamic country nor republic and nor even a country for the people of pakistan. Try to leave this country ASAP and go whereever you can flourish your career… leave this place for the military, mullans alike fazal,terrorist MQM and PMLQ lotas like minded….

    There is no destiny for honest people like Lawyers, Justice wajih,IK who stood firm against it but could not gain anything in fact always ditched by own jafaras.

    God bless Pakistan

    Thanks for the analysis A for [p] A, it’s appreciated. I do wish you would translate the Urdu phrases, I would not mind learning a little bit of Urdu, and it would help understanding.

    I am also interested in the upcoming general election — I see the general sloganeering, but never the actual platform that the parties stand upon. Do they have firm commitments like “we will move for a clear energy policy” We will institute more protected liberties for individuals” We will work for land reform legislation?”

    It would be helpful to go beyond the personalities and generalities.

    @ ASA
    “our generation fail to deliver hope to see better Pakistan has died”

    May their soul rest in peace! (Amen) :)

    Thanos, the italicized urdu sentence in para 6 goes like this:

    “The deal between PRESIDENT Pervez Musharaf and Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto …”

    @ASA, a bad habit that’s maligning us … we don’t see different angles of a thing. I’d like you to read the comments made by Momekh in this post … !

    Yes things would definitely change but they would only go to worst.

  9. asa (unregistered) on October 8th, 2007 @ 3:30 am

    wat different angle i would see in it …its complete mockrey of pakistan rule of law Its the Darkest day in the History of Pakistan, that an Army Chief in Uniform is Elected by the Assemblies, even a Student of 8th Class in Pakistan, knows that its totally illegal act, every possible thing was done to keep Musharaf in Power…the Question is Why? Is he Superior than any of the 155 Million Pakistanies. I am sure their are people present in Pakistan, they can Rule and admin Pakistan better than anyone…then Why again a Military Dictator!!! It sounds that we were Slaves, we are slave and it will continue… Who is impressed with Musharraf and Why? Only because he is From Military and US supports him and He knows well that without his Uniform and Power, he cant live in Pakistan for a Single day. Cause he is a killer of thousands of Pakistanies and His end will also be not good….How dare he is Ruling and Supporting the biggest Terrorist MQM and the Biggest Currupt Leader Benazir….Shame on Musharaf…History will never forgive him…God help Pakistan,

    Enough said and all this makes me feel very depressed. But I see that this army feudal coalition will take Pakistan to the same path as of Labenon. In next few decades who will rule Pakistan I don’t know (I pray we still remain independent) but if we don’t learn from history then there is only one thing is constant in this World and i.e. history repeats itself.(1971)

    @ ASA: You talk like an angry person. Anger is a sign of weakness and evil. Dont you dare make fun of our great nation and the people of Pakistan. Educate yourself and facilitate the democratic process that has finally started.

    You will get a chance to vote soon, use your vote and respect the people’s decision. Stop humiliating the nation and instead work for its betterment.

    @ ASA… it wasn’t enough that you were born a pessimist, you have to become utterly unpatriotic as well! :p Such a shame!
    I think it’s that time of your life where you are so dejected that you are border-lining on suicide and should go ahead and change your nationality to that of a peaceful country (Vatican City if you may?) and leave us Pakistanis alone :)

    Glad Musharraf was re-elected, hope SC validates it. I am also glad Musharraf is not one to be scared of hostile media like BBC or anti-Pakistan fanatics like Asa.

  13. asa (unregistered) on October 10th, 2007 @ 12:20 pm

    offcourse can someone dare to beat any dictator..we still have to be liberated from our napak army..inshAllah a day will come when thwir is rule of law in this country no one wil be above the law even our bloody napak army.
