Long March Ends: Tu Phir Mulk Bach Gaya?

Ok thousands gathered … burning up fuel of even more thousands … coming / flocking from all over Pakistan.

Result: ? I’m not very sure. Are you??

The pictures below (Courtesy: Khabrain) tells me a story of few tired organizers and teh health department now in-charge of fumigating the parade avenue. Sigh.

 Hum Mulk Bachanay Niklay Hain??

The question is: Bach Gaya???

    It was a stunt…………. Nothing happened. I am sure this Long march helped so many needy people to feed their children and family. I went to see the Long March on Faizabad. The security people did now allow me to take the pictures, as was not from PRESS :(

    I live is states there are lot of things and places I do not visit, as it is against my morals. And please do not give me a lecture about Islam.
    As a wise old man once said, "I saw Muslims in Egypt and Islam in Europe."
    And I do not have single sarcastic bone in my body.

    Well personally I was disappointed too, but on positive note it remained peaceful and lawyers galvanised the public opinion in the favour of reinstatemet of judges and ouster of Pervez Musharraf.www.masroor.com.pk

    How can the country be saved when there is a fascist called Napak Army who splitted Pakistan in two back in 71. As long as this filthy cult of Alcoholic Generals exist, we can’t save Pakistan

  13. wkhang on June 17th, 2008 @ 11:16 pm

    @ Adnansiddiqi,

    Nice Try to make Napak to Pak, We all are 100% sure here that you are not a part of us, you are an outer side creature,

    We all know who are you !! you are an INDIAN, just like other blogs your kind of people just jump in our rooms and try to messup with us…with a fake name.

    End of conversation with you.

    there were people sitting and talking similar like you ..of wasting money and energy when Quaid and others were struggling for Pakistan in 1947

    as of today, we and others know and talk about Quaid and try to show some association in one way or other to his cause at that time …while those aqalmand people are long way forgotten by everyone ..even their children cant claim any relation to them

    sad sad sad

    Here is how Cowasjee sums up this exercise in futility:

    Meantime 15 billion dollars have fled the country in the last couple of months, stock market has crashed after performing well during worst times in the last 8 years, chances are that we will be on IMF loan by the end of 2009….that will be reverting to the status of 1999. What a refreshing change this Nation has brought upon itself????

    Here are the wonderful results of the long drive:


    And Daily Times Says:

    Aitzaz under fire over decision to ‘skip’ sit-in
    RAWALPINDI: The members of Rawalpindi District Bar Association (RDBA) and Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA), Rawalpindi bench, on Monday split into pro and anti-Aitzaz Ahsan groups in a meeting, which discussed the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president’s abrupt announcement to end the lawyers’ long march on Islamabad without staging a sit-in in front of parliament on Saturday.

    Former RDBA general secretary Intizar Mehdi that the lawyers had lost faith with Aitzaz Ahsan, who had damaged the lawyers’ movement for the judges’ reinstatement beyond repair by ending the long march inconclusively.

    He said that the lawyers wouldn’t trust Aitzaz until he detached himself from Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which was not for the sacked judges’ reinstatement. He also asked Aitzaz to step down as the SCBA chief.

    @WkhanG: grow up kid. This Girl asma knows me that i am not an Indian:-) Clam down lil boy. It’s jsut you dont know fascism by Pakistan’s filthy army. Don’t take them as God while they are not at all.

    In answer to your question: Kia mulk bach gaya ??? I will like to quote Chacha Ghalib: Thee khabr garam kay Ghalib kay uraiN gay purzay / Dakhnay hum bhee gay magar tamasha na hova.

  18. aflatoon on June 19th, 2008 @ 7:15 pm

    MUSH says what he did was to save Pakistan.

    Zardari says the years he spent in jail were for Pakistan.

    Aitezaz says the long march was to save the Pakistan.

    Out of all the three guys, I would rather trust Aitezaz. But looks like he submitted to the pressure of

    Mush –> Zardari –> Nawaz –>

    Both Nawaz and Zardari are as big of a thug as MUSH.

    Lets make DR AQ Khan the president of Pakistan.

    @aflatoon: But then people are "opinionated" about Dr AQ Khan too … !

    Lately I have observed that the most vocal criticism of the army is coming from the folks sympathetic to right wing forces like Jammat-e-Islami, PTI , Hameed Gul, Talibaan and the lot. However until 1999 these are the same folks who not only endorsed but encouraged the actions of our millitary under Ayub, the Genocide in Bangladesh, The Zia’s take over, the Afghan / Kashmir Jihaad’s and the list goes on. Interestingly it was always the left in our country that was anti-millitary / anti establishment. But now I see a role reversal. Why? What has changed?

    The answere is simple, after 9/11 and even before that (I believe under Jahangir Karamat) the army decided to roll back on its influence on many fronts. Under Mush, an about turn from “Promote Jihaad philosophy from Kashmir to Kazakhistaan “, slowly return to barracks from civil duties and gradually promote democracy under a watchful eye. Make friends with India and eventually cut back on size. However, all this had led the present progressive leadership in Army in direct conflict with its past pillars and the whole religious lobby has lashed back with a vengeance, hence the language used by some commentators in this and other blogs. Now Army is their target and they want their people back in there at key positions so that work can be re-started on the abandoned agenda of the Nineties. So we see progressive forces under tremendous pressure especially after infiltration of media by Jamaaat / jihaadi sympathisers.

    He might be the father of the Pakistani Nuke but a gentleman by the name of Usmani was the founder of Pakistan Nuclear Programme, he wanted to focus on the use of this technology for Power Generation, Medicine and Agriculture. He gave us KANUPP and nuclear centres in Faisalabad / Tando Jam Agri Universities, which were used to create many new crop varieties. If he had stayed around for just another decade, we would have many more Power Plants. But he was upstaged by an UPSTART by the name of Qadeer Khan, who with the help stolen designs gave Pakistan a bomb and our politicians from Bhutto to Nawaz Sharif a Slogan to distract Nation. God how many Billions this Nation has spent on this exercise in futility and how many more billions are being spent just to hide / protect these useless.

    Sadly, the outlook for the country is not good.
