How to fight back Extremism

THE arrest of Brig Ali Khan, among others, from the army HQ for suspicion of his affiliation to my old Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) are necessarily about far more than merely ‘fighting militancy’ in Pakistani society or within the army.

Army spokesman Maj-Gen Athar Abbas has stated that the army follows a ‘zero tolerance’ policy towards such recruitment.
Despite the many grave errors the army has made of late, here they deserve praise for having done the right thing. However, these arrests must be seen as indicative of a wider intellectual malaise in Pakistani society surrounding the civilisational direction the nation should take.
When a nation suffers from such intellectual paralysis, the solution involves the painstakingly slow process of creating an intellectual consensus that can form the fabric of society — like a social contract, redefining the nation’s image at home and abroad, and reclaiming Islam from the extremists who seek to monopolise its interpretat…

Why Criticise 1200 politicians ?

Image
While discussing corruption, it was pointed out that there are about 1200 politicians in the assemblies, why corruption by these 1200 people is discussed? Are there only 1200 politicians who are corrupt and no one else? Do all the plazas, towers, business centers and factories are owned by 1200 corrupt politicians? If not then we must talk of accountability of others as well, not making 1200 politicians as the only target, there may be some corrupt among them. Comments: The figure of 1200 corrupt out of total population of 180000000 is very small, rather insignificant fraction which can be ignored if they are ordinary clerks, peons, laborers, workers etc, but these 1200 people are the elite who select the rulers, they are law makers, they form policies and run the government to rule 180000000 people. These 1200 people have the pivotal position of ‘brain’ in a body. If heart, lungs, kidneys and all the other organs of human body are functioning properly but there is a problem in the ‘bra…

Fork at Road

There is a saying in China that “you should not only focus on your head when you have a headache because the real reason for your headache could be your foot”. 

The debacle of May 2 was an incredible spectacle. What caused it? How, people wondered, had it come about? What were the terrible weaknesses and defects that had brought the country to such a low and pitiful state? 
Not long ago, the Republic had been strong enough, its government, army, people, and institutions tough enough to explode its nuclear device in the teeth of opposition from the world’s sole surviving superpower, and to survive a succession of bloody and disastrous battles. In the ensuing years, something happened that sapped that strength so that in the span of a few hours, while the guardians of our frontiers slumbered away, the myth of Pakistan’s independence was shattered. 
Pakistan, possessing one of the finest armies in the world, lay prostrate, leaving the country dazed and totally demoralised. …

A foolish friend

"Wise enemy is batter than a foolish friend" says some wise guy. Mr.Nawaz Sharif through his stupidity was twice kicked out as Prime Minister of Pakistan, he has not learnt any lesson. Pakistan  paid heavy price for his fooloies, Musharaf ruled for 9 years, followed by Zardari, the most corrupt and inefficient leader ever ruled this country. He has secured his position for next term if all goes well as per his plan. He has shown his real face to Nawaz Shrif,  who wanted Zardari to complete 5 years term for sake of 'democracy, product of 45% bogus votes! Its high time for Mr.Sharif to spare this country and give leadership of PML [n] to some one batter...... if there is one...
