They begged Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (ZABhutto) to take over a defeated, broken and demoralized West Pakistan which was all that was left of Pakistan after the creation of Bangladesh. More than the nuclear program and much else ZABhutto’s biggest accomplishment was an on-the-downslide Pakistan’s Resurrection. Had ZABhutto not been judicially murdered by Zia, Pakistan would have, by the mid 80s, been a well integrated Country with a strong Defence and on the move to become an established strong economy with a happy population. Above all it would have been, forever, Constitutionally ruled. All this is what we lost when Zia and his close advisors judicially murdered ZABhutto. Pakistan would not have been in the woes and throes it finds itself 35 years down the road from the mid 80s when in 2021 Pakistan is still gripped by the same old 70-90s political power struggle. The same can be said about former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif (MNS). By 2015, Pakistanis could feel Pakistan strengthening all round, despite the motivated noise and disruption that was caused in the D-Chowk by the current PM and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and which was fully supported by a segment of sold out media. The 1958, 1969, 1977, 1999 version axe was updated to a 2018 version. This is what brought Imran Khan and PTI to power and ousted MNS. The dismay of Pakistanis and their morale which has slipped into their ankles is a glaring testimony to Pakistan’s woeful conditions because of the 2018 axe. It is time Pakistanis to speak the truth and stand up for the Country that belongs to them and their future generations. No one can change the destiny of a Nation if the people of that Nation, collectively, are self serving liars. Therefore, for Pakistan, #TruthBeTold

The ONLY entity that has perpetually suffered from the unconstitutional power struggles of Pakistani institutions as well as struggles between power wielding individuals detesting each other’s face ever since 1947 to this date in Oct 2021 is PAKISTAN and it’s unfortunate people. Even today people who are involved in Pakistan’s decision making process are ignoring the relevance of the people of Pakistan. They need to awaken to ground realities. Today, the ignored and rendered irrelevant Pakistanis, are the closest to taking their destiny in their own hands. One prays that, from the ongoing chaos, emerges a Pakistan where the Pakistani State and its people begin to take precedence over individuals and the offices they may be holding as a Trust of the Pakistani State and its people. No individual is indispensable. The State is paramount.

If a ‘George Floyd’ can make the USA look like a third world country rising against human rights violations, one can imagine what an uncontrollable ‘George Floyd’ kind of incident can do to a real third world country like Pakistan. Am not mincing words. Time for all to think hard

Power in Pakistan has been shared equally by the politicians and the military. We all know that the establishment influence over political governments has always been there even when it has not been directly in power. A fact not one straightforward Pakistani can deny.
My question is :- Are the politicians solely responsible for all that is wrong with Pakistan?
In my opinion a nation gets what it deserves. We have our independence since 1947 but we Pakistanis have not been able to handle it as a nation should handle its independence and sovereignty.
We are far from being a nation in the true sense of that term. We are a bunch of people of so many varying ethnicities, speaking so many different languages, adhering to so many different religious sects and so on.
We are a bunch of people divided on grounds such as political affiliations, ethnicities etc and now even on gender basis.
This bunch of people as a whole have NOT yet gelled or come together as a nation. Most of us are indifferent as long as it is hunky dory for us. Who cares as long as I am good and enjoying life. Rest be damned.
The day this bunch of people cements as a nation and what matters to this bunch of people then is Pakistan and it’s well being all else will fall in place. Simple as that.
So far leaders and people alike have handled this independence for themselves not for PAKISTAN.
I hope someday the leaders and the led realize it all and come together as one solid rock.

Life from childhood and all along the road is but a dream that is full of fantasies of sorts. We adopt heroes and want to be like them. Anything and everything starts with a dream and with fantasizing it. Some dreams materialize but most do not. And it goes on and on. That is life!

The degree of arrogance when in power determines the degree of adversity in disgrace that awaits such arrogant people. People in power MUST know that it is NOT forever. As a once powerful man I was humble with my tribesmen and this is how they honored me when I returned home as a NOBODY

I pray to ALMIGHTY ALLAH that even if common Pakistanis like me cannot see those actions for some obvious reasons that I do understand very well Pakistan, in fact, is alert and active inside and is taking due measures to meet all possible hypotheses that can threaten its integrity

South Asia is headed towards turmoil and a situation wherein Pakistan may find itself tightly cornered. Pakistan may then have to face fait accompli or be left with the only option of facing an undesired and totally destructive war. Kashmir is just the launchpad towards all that
August 31, 2019

By the way Kashmir is being played out on twitter, there is a fear setting in amongst Pakistan’s 220 million people that while a huge and real threat looms over Pakistan the unity, urgency and expediency that was witnessed in 1965 and 71 amongst the people and the rulers is missing

When something like the Indian atrocities in Indian Held Kashmir happen anywhere people become refugees in neighbouring States. Kashmiris should have fled to Pakistan and AJ&K. That hasn’t happened. My guess:- Because the Kashmiris intend to fight and win, come what may. INSHAA ALLAH
