Does Imran Khan hold ability to steer Pakistan from troubled waters?


The answer is NO! This is not because of any grudges for Khan or PTI. It is because of the unrealistic approach of Mr Khan towards the situation in Pakistan. Below is the analysis of Mr Khan’s oft-chanted mantras regarding conflict resolution.

(a) Drone Attacks: Mr Khan creates much noise and stage fashionable sit-ins in posh neighbourhoods of Peshawar and other Pakistani cities regarding Drone Attacks. He has been calling upon Pakistan Air Force to destroy American Drones and calling upon Army to declare USA as arch-enemy. He thinks that Drone Attacks will stop terrorism and terrorism is manifesting as an outcome of Drone Attacks.

I have many objections on this. First of all, well, what kind of sovereignty you talk about? As far as I know, no Pakistani of normal upbringing can go to North Waziristan or South Waziristan or any Tribal Area and come back. Either he will be abducted for ransom or he will be killed as a spy of infidels. Mr Khan talks about the sovereignty of the areas where Pakistan actually doesn’t exist practically. As a matter of fact, our policy makers made a terrible, terrible mistake after the birth of Pakistan that they declared Tribal Areas as semi-autonomous (read: lawless regions!). Another sin of Mr Khan is twisting the history and distorting the real facts. Mr Khan alleges that Tribal Areas were not even under British Raj. This is very wrong as sharp students of History do know that Tribal Areas were serving as main camps of British Army. That’s why there are so many forts of British era in nearly all tribal areas!!! Mr Khan doesn’t realize that British needed a proxy between ever hostile Afghanistan and British Hindustan.

  We see many British Era Buildings in Tribal Areas. That include very hostile Areas as well. Locals tell about tremendous influence of British Officers and their hunting trips with local Maliks and Khans. However, Mr Khan twists the history and misinform us that these tribal people had always been fighting with the outsiders. The history speaks otherwise because the main enforcements of British Army during the 1857 Rebellion (that we dub as 1857 War of Independence) came from Tribal People and from all districts of present day Khyber Pakhtoonkhuwa. 80% of the foot soldiers of British Army during the siege of Delhi were from Tribal Areas and Nowshehra Cantonment. 10% came from Multan and 10% were Sikhs of Kashmir and Punjab. Rest of India either sided morally by Bahadur Shah Zafar or stayed away from the conflict. It is very unfortunate that Mr Khan twists history and distorts facts and figures for his own vested motives and declare that Tribal People always fought British and outsiders. Whereas the reality is that Tribal People always were mercenaries (armies that are bought by the intruders to capture countries). Literature such as The Last Mughal by William D is available for further reading and investigation of the fact that if Tribesmen were always against British or they were siding with them!

It is very true that British Army had Forts in nearly all Tribal Areas where soldiers were trained. During World War I, British Army sent enforcements to defeat the Turkish Army in Holy Land. Well, it should be no surprise that the majority of Muslim Soldiers comprising the British Army were from Present Day Khyber Pakjtoon Khuwa (KPK) and Tribal Areas where, according to Mr Khan claim, were always a hostility towards British and Foreign Powers and national patriotism. It is enough to conclude that picture is not as rosy as Mr Khan paints. Now let’s talk about the status of these areas in Pakistan.

Very unfortunately – and to my utter dismay – Mr Khan lies when he says that these areas are actually defining the sovereignty of  Pakistan. This is very big and FAT lie because these areas were exempted from taxes, declared almost autonomous and were declared scot-free (that is Pakistani Mainland Laws are not applicable there). Well, Mr Khan thinks that our elders did it for the betterment of the country and few stooges of West and India on purpose worked against those innocent tribal people to keep them away from Civilization. Well, Mr Khan doesn’t know that Quaid-e-Azam was not that happy to grant defecto-autonomy to tribal areas. Some books suggest that it was a political manoeuvre to deter the double fold threat growing from both Eastern and Western fronts of Baby Pakistan.

It should come as surprise not only to Mr Khan but also to other Tribesmen supporters that the elders of the tribes asked Government of Pakistan (GOP) not to take back their British Era perks and privileges otherwise they would help Afghan King and all of their brothers and friends starting from Peshawar Cantonment to Attock Cantonment will join the jihad launched by Afghanistan to claim the territory from Peshawar to Rawalpindi that Afghans consider a part of Afghanistan. Well, India didn’t say that. Our Tribesmen said that! So poor Baby Pakistan’s Government saved it’s ass and gave to Tribesmen what they wanted.

Well, then we all know that Tribesman pay no tax! Because Law of Land of Pure is not applicable in Tribal Areas so, therefore, all stolen cars, abducted people and all links of every crime in Pakistan go to tribal areas. Mr Khan who thinks that the current status of Tribal Area was always an effective defence is wrong and he is guilty of criminal negligence.  If it is so then what kind of authority GOP enjoy in Tribal Areas? No Pakistani can go there (excluding Jihadi Terrorists)! Well, to my utter shame and disgust Mr Khan HIMSELF is incapable of going into any tribal area and stage sit-in there. Why didn’t Mr Khan went to Miramshah or Mir Ali and staged his dharna there? If he is so pissed over  Drone Attacks on  half-sovereign Tribal Areas then why didn’t he gather some moral courage and sat in Mir Ali Town or Miranshah town of North Waziristan? Infact, Mr Khan selected a clam and posh neighbourhood of Peshawar where rich and elite live as place for his dharna! Ironic! Isn’t it? What a shame! Well, what is happening in Tribal Areas especially North Waziristan and all other tribal areas is no secret. So when all terrorists enjoy their Bomb Bash Parties in North Waziristan and chant Allah ho Akbar! Our Immi Khan doesn’t condemn those terrorists. Well, he condemns USA for Drone Attacks. I think all those who are taking no action or propounding government not to take any action should be dealt as Taliban and Al-Qaeeda by Civilized World. When you will not take any action and classify Taliban into Good and Bad Taliban then someone WILL take action! USA is doing great job by killing terrorists in Tribal Areas. If you have enough Moral Courage, Immi K, then go to North Waziristan and stage your sit in there rather to bombard T2F or Kuchh Khas!

(b) Negotiations with Taliban: This is very unfortunate that Mr Khan is envisaging Dialogue with those who are openly declaring War against the State of Pakistan. Negotiations are carried out with those with whom you have some common ground. Whereas we see that Taliban has one clear agenda thhat is occupation of Pakistan and implementation of Taliban Shariah Law in Pakistan. Well, I want to know that what common ground do Imran Khan hold with Taliban? Does Imran Khan want imposition of Shariah Law in Pakistan? Well, if so then he should be stoned to death by the virtue of Shariah Law on the account of having an illicit affair with Sita White along with many other unnamed women. Obviously, we are no one to comment on personal life of Mr Khan but just as Bill Clinton, NJ governor and so many people Mr Khan is a public figure so his character should be judged accordingly.

What common ground does Shirin Mazari hold??? Well, her character and famous swimming pool scandal is known! Oh God! She too sees a common ground with Taliban?

There is no common ground with Taliban and Mr Khan doesn’t tell the agenda of negotiations and perks that he is envisaging for Taliban provided that their Global Terror Agenda is very much known!

(c) Common Man Issues: Imran Khan’s rhetoric regarding the issues of common man is null! During Lawyer’s movement, we saw that Imran Khan was saying to the violent crowds that after the removal of Musharraf and restoration of CJ, all issues will be resolved. It’s been many years. CJ is doing nothing at all except for taking cases of political nature and those which create media frenzy and issuing public judgements just like some afternoon soap on Star Plus.  Imran Khan has no say on Kala Bagh Dam (he too owns large properties around the proposed site of KBD). Imran Khan has no say over the water issues with India. Imran Khan has no say that how he will create job opportunities for the growing jobless population of Pakistan? Imran Khan has no say on clean water issues and health issues of General Public. Imran Khan has no say on poverty elimination. Imran Khan has no say on growing circular debt. No Say Doesn’t mean that he doesn’t talk about it. No Say means that he has not presented any practical plan to resolve these outstanding issues except for singing the mantra of Removing Zardari’s government! I don’t know when Imran Khan will make us known about is amazing Book of Wisdom from where he’s going to read Solomon’s secrets of successful Kingdom and Happy People.

(d) Foreign Policy:Imran Khan has no vision for Foreign Policy that is goal oriented. Imran Khan talks about abandoning USA and West. I want to know where we would go after that? In the hands of Taliban? China will never engage into any war with USA because Chinese economy depends upon US Economy. Well, during the crunch, Chinese help in bailout is not a secret! India is growing power and world is largely Indophile. Where you will take Pakistan? To Iran? Saudi Arabia and other Arab brethren are slaves to money and luxury. They can never embrace poverty because of Pakistan. Where you will go? Imran Khan’s foreign policy has no vision and no guidelines. The guidelines that I heard in few lectures are nothing but empty rhetoric written in Pakistan Studies books by Zia ul Haq. In reality, Zia was sleeping with Americans and CIA.

(e) Balochistan Uprising: Imran Khan though shouts a lot over Balochistan but he hasn’t given any clear vision on Balochistan. Imran Khan has not told us yet that how he will resolve the conflict between Baloch and Centre? How he will see the demands of Baloch on their natural resources? He doesn’t comment on the modus-oprendi of the sharing of natural resources. Including this, Immi K has no word over rotting Thar Coal Reserves in Sindh. Well, Pakistan where we are facing two day gas outage and 8 hour electricity outage is home of 1000 MCF Natural Gas unused reserves and almost 9000 trillion Kg of Coal. This means that if the demand of world’s electricity keeps on growing with the same pace, Pakistani coal is sufficient for 9000 years!!! And look at us! Imran Khan doesn’t know or he never actually told about his plan for the utilization of natural resources.

By All the above, we see that Imran Khan is no revolutionary. He is just a cricketer lacking vision of revolution. He can, of course, grow into a leader. But if he wants to see Pakistan surviving not annihilating then he must define his clear vision regarding the issues that I mentioned above. A brief review is below:

(1) PTI must abandon Taliban and stop being their apologists

(2) PTI must support elimination of militant Taliban and support negotiation with those who lay their weapons

(3) PTI must present a clear vision about Common-Man Problems such as Kala Bagh Dam and Thar Coal Reservoirs

(4) PTI must present clear guidelines for Foreign Policy

(5) PTI must present clear guidelines for the negotiations with Baloch over resources issues and inform if PTI thinks that resources belong to Balochistan or center

(6) PTI should act according to what Mr Khan descrived as “insaaf” and stop taking help of ISI in securing power!

Let’s see  if Imran Khan would answer these questions! Frankly, I don’t think so!

    Well, um gladly surprised to see someone sharing my views ….. though there are some (at times fatal) mistakes here & there, mostly needed a proof-read before you hit the submit button. One of which is in the beginning:

    “..He thinks that Drone Attacks will stop terrorism and terrorism is manifesting as an outcome of Drone Attacks…”

    IMO, you kinda set a wrong foot with a slight slip of “not” from the sentence. Other than that, a good read, thoroughly agree with the last points on policies!

  2. Mustafa Aamir says:

    I would just like to say that you are entirely one sided you either support support some other party or have something very personal against Imran Khan. I see Imran as the only leader of the ones currently available that might actually bring a change and help develop Pakistan as a stable nation. Your argument would have been a lot stronger and might have been ocnvincing if you had not been so strongly opinionated and made so many personal attacks on him.

  3. Enchant of Hope says:

    @ Mustafa Aamir

    This is a very typical PTI Response in defence of Immi K. Obviously when I don’t support him then this means that I support someone else. Why don’t you put yourself some argument and refute me? It is very typical for PTI supporters to blame others of personal attacks without providing any justifications and do personal attacks on others under the cover of truth. But truth is harsh, boy! Exactly what is written above… 🙂

  4. Faizan says:

    Imran Khan is patriotic and a person who loves his country would definatley craft policies in the favor of our country!

    No other justification required!

    I absolutely love how people such as yourselves claim a higher level of understanding on all issues facing Pakistan and then start passing edicts from your blogging pulpits. Most of what you have said are not facts but opinions and as you have a right to yours Imran Khan and PTI supporters have a right to their views without you passing sweeping judgements about their political, religious and personal beliefs. Your blog proclaims the right to free speech but i guess that free speech is only for you if anyone else demands the same right they are labelled as naive, taliban loving, establishment backed losers who are out to hoodwink the people of Pakistan.

    Ill keep my responses in point form

    * Imran has never asked anyone to declare the US as the arch enemy (i would like to see proof of this claim that you have made), he is against the US policies in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Imran Khan is for a foreign policy based on equal standing and not a client state status with the US.

    * If we cant visit North and South Waziristan does not mean that we allow the US to bomb the people living in those areas, if the writ of the state is challenged it should be the state of Pakis tan which responds to the situation and not the US. Their are many parts of Karachi that you cannot visit and access should we allow drone strikes in these areas as well?

    *As for your assertion that the tribal areas were under the British raj because they had forts their is as naive an assertion for which you accuse Imran Khan. Trying to strengthen your argument by quoting out of William Dalrymple’s book the last Mughal (is it the only book of history you have ever read?) is rather desperate considering his book primarily deals with profiling the last days of the Mughal empire and life during the last days in the capital Delhi and not the history of the tribal regions. For history about the tribal regions read “The Pathans” by Sir Olaf Caroe who was the administrator of NWFP just before Partition. In addition also read on the First Afghan War and the 2nd Afghan War and Treaty of Rawalpindi. A swallow doesnt make a summer a few soldiers dont make the whole tribal region.

    * Your interpretation of the laws that annex FATA into Pakistan are laughable at best, they dont pay taxes you say well the rest of Pakistan doesnt pay any either, the rest of Pakistan gets a development budget you should check the amount that is spent in FATA. The region is governed by the president through the political agents and all strategic concerns of the state are binding on the people of Fata, they only are where they are scot free is keeping their tribal customs and traditions. The succesive goverments of pakistan have failed to devise a policy around FATA so to blame the people and justyfing their murder under the insane war on terror is as cold blooded as you can possibly get, but i guess your house isnt being bombed so why should you give a damn!!!

    *Imran Khan doesnt condemn terrorism is getting old you can continue to peddle this nonsense but no one is buying his consistetly rising popularity is a testament to the fact that the people of Pakistan accept his views on this conflict and now the whole world accepts that this conflict has no military solution. From leading counter terrorism experts kile David Kilcullen, general Wesley Clark to ex CIA staff like Micheal Scheur have said categorically that this conflcit will have a political solution and the armed groups can only be nullfied by intelligence and strong local law enforcement not drones, artillery and gunships. All links to articles can be furnished incase you dont find them on your own.

    *Obviously you have never negotiated with anyone and thus view the process of negotiations confined to engagement with those with whom you have common ground, if you have a shared common groud why would you want to negotiate? think about it einstein!!!! You negotiate only when you have two divergent views and the process bring a better understanding of the conflicting views and a possible compromise on certain issues. A Rand corporation research into insurgencies since 1960’s has given military actions a 7% chance of success and a 93% chance to a political solution but i guess you know better than all those experts!!!!

    * The issue of justice is the issue of the common man when a ordinary Pakistanis is cheated out of economic and social justice that is his real issue and Imran Khan and PTI have this very issue as the basis of their political movement. Rampant corruption in the goverment machinery takes away money from the Public Sector development budget and thus we have pitiful education and health budgets which will be doubled in the first year if PTI comes to power. The issue of circular debt is not rocket science people need to start paying bills and those who dont pay need to be cut off from the power grid and that decision enforced this can only be done via a credible goverment not theives and crooks or intellectual heavy weights such as yourselves. Imran Khan does not have any property around KBD i challenge you to prove otherwise, Namal Collge is built on land given by the people of that area and is not Imran personal property. As for Job creation Pakistan is a agricultural country and PTI’s focus is on bringing land reforms to increase the total cultivable land and ensure that agri gets the main focus from the goverment as it would ensure maximum available workforce participation and also give rise to our biggest industry textile which relies on our agricultural capacity. Pakistan already has surplus power generation capacity but extensive line losses, kundas and the circular debt issue have caused this major power crisis. PTI believes in construction of hydroelectric dams through consensus by all stakeholders and is developing a concrete policy around renewable energy, as well conventional generation methods. Water Resorviors in strategic locations is also part of meeting pakistan’s growing fresh water requirements. All of these issues are being formulated by relevant think thanks within PTI but since you didnt bother to research before you launched your tirade you probably will know once PTi is elected.

    *I am sorry to repeat myself but your foreign policy understanding and implications are like the rest of your inane babbling, Imran Khan has called for equal ties with the US not war with them their is a difference. the relationship spectrum is a continumm not two polarised points. PTI advocates friendly relations with all neighbours and the commity of nations but holding Pakistan’s interest supreme. Your claim of attending lectures is a lie my friend if you did you wouldnt be so ignorant. His aim of stopping aid and being able to bring self sustainability is a key pillar of the forign relations policy.

    * Imran Khan has time and again called for a political settlement on balochistan, military actions do not work he is already in touch with major baloch dissidents and he believes he can bring them to the negotiating table once the military is rolled back and balochistan gets its fair share of the development budget. He is the only one who has talked about our gas and coal reserves because he is the only one who advocates a stop to foreign aid so again your claim is nothing but a basless lie. There are links available on youtube with him talking about Pakistan’s potential.

    Imran Khan has answered all the questions raised by you and i have answered them again if you are truly sincere to pakistan you will look at them with an unbiased point of view but going by the blog content and your level of conversation about him and shireen mazari i would think you will not be able to concede your argument. Free speech is easy to talk about but very hard to practice keep writing blogs while we are out there protecting your right to free speech!!!!!

    Finally I want to show my greatest gratitude to my readers for supporting our blog and taking it to the new heights where PTI trolls and goons of Immi K fan club are now racing to decry the facts written here with the same sheer stupidity such as that is displayed by Imran Khan and other PTI Trolls including MS Mazari. This is the time to answer all dashing empty vows such as this which Hassan has written. I am very happy that Hassan showed his true PTI burger colors and tried to pooh-pooh the facts that have been described and are well preserved by the history. Let’s see.

    1. Whatever is written here is cross-verifiable unlike the bits of Ziaist history that Imran Khan and his team of elite hoodwinks propagate so your first point is nothing but a clear personal attack that I am letting do due to the enormous fry-on effect the article has produced on you.

    2. Well, unlike Taliban Khan, we believe in freedom of speech, expression and religion for every citizen of Pakistan; we don’t back those who divide Pakistanis as Shia, Sunni, Ahemadiya, Christian or Hindu. Worst of all Imran Khan and the drunken gang of his entourage divide people of Pakistan into Barelvi and Deobandi through supporting Taliban. The greatest proof of free speech is that your post that is full of personal attacks is allowed here. This keeps us in high esteem and we really encourage such posts here because our one mission is to expose Taliban Khan.

    3. Establishment backed “losers”. Thanks for providing us with a new and definitive name of the entourage of Taliban Khan. We are greatful.

    >>* Imran has never asked anyone to declare the US as the arch enemy (i would like to see proof of this claim that you have made), he is against the US policies in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Imran Khan is for a foreign policy based on equal standing and not a client state status with the US.>>

    Your first point shows clear lack of understanding of Taliban Khan mentality. Are you deaf or blind? In a recent interview with Asma Shirazi, Mr Taliban Khan has openly declared that USA is the arch enemy of the people of Pakistan and threatened government to “understand it” This is very clear and everyone knows about it. Your knowledge about the facts seems to be hiding behind the curtain of the love of Taliban.

    You talk about the equal standing! LOL! Are you kidding me or kidding the people who turn up to the fashionable protests to hear DJ Butt or professional clowns that Taliban Khan has hired or those who come to see the hot chicks clad in tight jeans or cool dudes with spikes? LOLX!

    If Taliban Khan says so then, HELLO!!!, Pakistan is NOT at equal standing with USA. For your kind information, a recent analysis of American Foreign Aid released by Congress and circulated widely in newspapers show that since 1951 (just after 2 years from the demise of the Father of Nation), Pakistan is the highest aid receiver; the US aid has always been an oxygen for Pakistan. It is a very famous saying that “if a beggar shouts at you then just show him his way” and I am very sure that you have not heard about it. What policies you are talking about? You are basically justifying that Taliban Khan has all rights to breed extremists and fanatics and Suicide Bomber Factories??? And, plus, just few days after Uncle Sam stopped the Aid, our country saw largest ever power crisis that, of course, Taliban Khan wanted to cash but again big daddies in GHQ thought otherwise and aid resumed. Of course, your facts will not collide with mine because of lack of understanding and lack of useful information. Equal footings on what? Can we match GDP of USA? Can we match military arsenal of USA except for the bum. And even this makes us more vulnerable. Foreign policy on equal footings is nothing but an excerpt from Pakistan Study book written by Zia ul Haq to create a Talibani and fanatical mentality in Pakistan. The reality is that you cannot have equal footings with USA at all because:

    (i) your country is running on American money and your GDP is alarmingly low since forever.
    (ii) You are monsters in your backyard and no regional country including China trusts you. Evidence? What happened in Chinese Muslim dominated province, China officially declared that the terrorists came from Pakistan and they were trained there? How do I know? World’s and Pakistan’s leading newspapers had this story. India is not ready to trust you. Iran thinks that you are playing double game. You mean your PAK Fauj and Military Inc. How can you have equal footings? As a matter of fact, what is the standing of Taliban khan on this issue? NULL! You talk about peace with India and Kashmir? No! What do you have in your cannon? Nothing at all! So why you blasted with loud bang? The answer is this is what is taught to you at corner meetings of Taliban Khan Entourage of “Establishment Supporting losers”… CHuch chuch chuch! lol

    >>* If we cant visit North and South Waziristan does not mean that we allow the US to bomb the people living in those areas, if the writ of the state is challenged it should be the state of Pakis tan which responds to the situation and not the US. Their are many parts of Karachi that you cannot visit and access should we allow drone strikes in these areas as well?>>

    One statement of truth: We cannot visit North and South Waziristan. Rest whatever you wrote is emotional crap having no ground as firm support. As you said, that Pakistan should response to the situation. It is like HA HA HA. Pakistani establishment is supporting Taliban and promoting extremism as the tool of state policy for strategic depth in Afghanistan. Obviously your PTI mind cannot comprehend it. Of course, in this 21st century the policy of strategic depth will fail like “Defense of East lies in West”.

    Today Supreme Court and CJ that was once favorite of Taliban Khan gave the verdict on suo-motto Karachi Target Killing case and it throws cold water on your point of comparing Karachi with Two Waziristans. Well, but our stand on this issue is that stern action against terrorists must be taken even in Lahore, Faisalabad and Islamabad leave alone Karachi. And, of course, who asks you to visit Kati Pahari where CJ asked Rangers to take definite action?

    >>*As for your assertion that the tribal areas were under the British raj because they had forts their is as naive an assertion for which you accuse Imran Khan. Trying to strengthen your argument by quoting out of William Dalrymple’s book the last Mughal (is it the only book of history you have ever read?) is rather desperate considering his book primarily deals with profiling the last days of the Mughal empire and life during the last days in the capital Delhi and not the history of the tribal regions.

In addition also read on the First Afghan War and the 2nd Afghan War and Treaty of Rawalpindi. A swallow doesnt make a summer a few soldiers dont make the whole tribal region.>>

    Unfortunately, your assertion about the facts is as naive as Shri Mazari’s diatribe in Kohsar Market. So why did British had forts in all Tribal Areas? No, they just came out of nowhere!LOL!

    The answer to your silly argument about William Dalrymple’s book has no base because this is not just a history book that narrates a tale like Tareekh e Farishta or Shahab Nama. It is the collection of the letters of the British Army officials and Bureaucrats and their communication with British Colonial authorities and their personal communication with each other. You just tried to demonize an authentic and unbiased book of History. Yes, you are right that this book deals with the last days of Mugal Empire in India but you are guilty of misquoting and misinterpreting history here. The book narrates about how the foot soldiers came from Tribal Areas and fought the Last Mughal. This puts you in difficult situation because of two reasons:

    (i) Soldiers were mercenaries
    (ii) Pathan soldiers were supporting British Raj

    Both things support the point of view expressed in the article and the ground slips underneath your field. Because the memos and the letters sent to Calcutta from Nowshehra Cantt talk about the promises made by the Elders of Waziristan, Mohmand, Khyber etc to help British Raj. Why did they help him??? The book that you mentioned even goes against you because it talks about the deep friendship and respect of British in the hearts of Pathans and he goes as far as calling them “descendants of the European race”. And who invented the famous theory that Pathans are basically lost tribes of Israel? British that is… Before that these views were strongly refuted by the scholars of Medieval Islam. They even disagree that a person naming Qais Abul Rasheed exist! He is the one from which Pathan claim their ancestry. In fact, the books by William D are very informative because they don’t just talk about the subject in hand. And, of course, fall of Delhi is the point from where Zia started Pakistan Movement in Pakistan Studies Books that you quoted in your foreign policy statement so a very unbiased assessment of the Fall of Delhi shows that Pathans and Tribal folk played pivotal role in the fall of Delhi. 80% of the Soldiers were from Tribal Areas. I also quoted Lawrence of Arabia, a book about the fall of Ottoman Empire in Arabia and it also says that the soldiers that attacked the Two Holy Cities were mainly from North Western India. Where is KPK and tribal areas of today???

    You have also suggested me to read about two Afghan Wars but a very unbiased analysis of two wars put you in difficult situation and turbulent waters again. What about treaty of Rawalpindi? LOL!

    >>* Your interpretation of the laws that annex FATA into Pakistan are laughable at best, they dont pay taxes you say well the rest of Pakistan doesnt pay any either, the rest of Pakistan gets a development budget you should check the amount that is spent in FATA.

The succesive goverments of pakistan have failed to devise a policy around FATA so to blame the people and justyfing their murder under the insane war on terror is as cold blooded as you can possibly get, but i guess your house isnt being bombed so why should you give a damn!!!>>

    Your logic in the above para is very circular in nature. Let’s analyse it how: “hey dont pay taxes you say well the rest of Pakistan doesnt pay any either”. Yes, Taliban Khan and other politicians don’t pay taxes. So you are basically saying that Tribal People don’t pay taxes and rest of Pakistan doesn’t as well and they get the development budget that’s why it is Ok for them to not to pay tax? FYI the little salary class that pay tax do deserve little development budget that they get. We are of the view that FATA should be brought into the tax net. You said that FATA is governed by the president. It is true constitutionally but the next part of your sentence is laughable and stupid! Well, the customs and traditions that you talk about for FATA? Like they can give shelter to carjackers or to extortioner or kidnapper or foreign terrorists? This is true that successive governments failed to device a policy about FATA and opportunists like Taliban Khan used Tribal People as mercenaries and terrorism as the state tool so, therefore, they were not brought into the mainland laws. The war is and was inevitable due to the monsters that we bread with CIA money back in good old Zia Days. If Pakistani Establishment and Taliban Khan are really serious then they need to have a strategic shift from extremism towards sanity. The murders are deplorable, however, if you will not cut the part that is infested with cancer then it will devour your whole body. The a more stern military action is the call of the day not only for those who are Taliban and terrorists but also for those who are supporting them. My house will be bombarded too because I have to live and die in Pakistan in case we don’t end our self mortification policy but, i am sure, that you give a damn about it as you will runaway to Europe or America itself and your Taliban Khan will live happily ever after with Ms Jamaima Khan! 🙂 Hey got your Full Bright Invitation Letter? Yes? Congrats!! LOL!

    >>*Obviously you have never negotiated with anyone and thus view the process of negotiations confined to engagement with those with whom you have common ground, if you have a shared common groud why would you want to negotiate? think about it einstein!!!!

    Well, we all know that Taliban Khan when he was cricketer acquired a great deal in negotiations with different members of the PCB and Team Members so that he could victimize people and get the team of his choice without merit and take the full credit of World Cup of 1992. Yes, my deceiving skills are not comparable with Khan. The simple logic is about common ground. Just two days ago Molvi Faqir of TTP said categorically that he is ready to negotiate with the government of Pakistan IF THEY IMPLEMENT SHARIAH in this country. So he thinks that the common ground of negotiation is the Shariah. Well, you have habitually misquoted the survey; you have not given the types of conflicts that Rand Corporation Judged. So Mullah Faqir thinks that if establishment agrees to implement Shariah in Pakistan than he will lay down his arms because they are “peace loving people”. So there is a simple question from PTI and Taliban Khan: Will you agree to the implementation of Shariah Law in Pakistan? If yes then this is what TTP asked and seeing as common ground if no then you have again proved yourself wrong.

    Another thing is that what about Mr Khan’s bastard child from Sita White? He has committed adultery himself so if Shariah Comes and we have the testimony of 4 male witnesses as well (I can bring a Hadith from Sahi Muslim and Bukhari about the admittance of the testimony of non-muslims in Islamic courts on adultery) then Imran Khan should be the one who should be stoned to death first for adultery. If he doesn’t want to get stoned then why do you want Taliban to cut throats of people and stone or lash them? You proved yourself wrong once again.

    >>* The issue of justice is the issue of the common man when a ordinary Pakistanis is cheated out of economic and social justice that is his real issue and Imran Khan and PTI have this very issue as the basis of their political movement. Rampant corruption in the goverment machinery takes away money from the Public Sector development budget and thus we have pitiful education and health budgets which will be doubled in the first year if PTI comes to power. The issue of circular debt is not rocket science people need to start paying bills and those who dont pay need to be cut off from the power grid and that decision enforced this can only be done via a credible goverment not theives and crooks or intellectual heavy weights such as yourselves. Imran Khan does not have any property around KBD i challenge you to prove otherwise, Namal Collge is built on land given by the people of that area and is not Imran personal property. As for Job creation Pakistan is a agricultural country and PTI’s focus is on bringing land reforms to increase the total cultivable land and ensure that agri gets the main focus from the goverment as it would ensure maximum available workforce participation and also give rise to our biggest industry textile which relies on our agricultural capacity. Pakistan already has surplus power generation capacity but extensive line losses, kundas and the circular debt issue have caused this major power crisis. PTI believes in construction of hydroelectric dams through consensus by all stakeholders and is developing a concrete policy around renewable energy, as well conventional generation methods. Water Resorviors in strategic locations is also part of meeting pakistan’s growing fresh water requirements. All of these issues are being formulated by relevant think thanks within PTI but since you didnt bother to research before you launched your tirade you probably will know once PTi is elected.>>

    Bingo!!! The jackpot is here!!! Justice is indeed an issue of common man; agreed. But is CJ providing it? Imran Khan has said on record that when CJ will be restored 90% of his manifesto will be fulfilled and he has been restored so where is the justice?

    Regarding your sheer misquote about the Health and Education Budget, please, come to senses! 80% of the budget goes to defense what little is left is just like hen’s teeth! Imran Khan owns huge argo lands around proposed sites of KBD. He declared them too. He owns huge agro farms in Mianwali District that are feared to become barren with KBD. What else you wrote is just reproduction of the 18th page of Taliban Khan’s manifesto.

    About power sector; you said that Taliban Khan wants the consensus of all stake holders. Hence you are accepting the status quo that Imran Khan deplores the most. How duplicate!!! You are saying that Pakistan has surplus power generation and suddenly after Mushi went, Kundas and line losses exceeded 700 fold and thus extensive load-shedding? How naive! Can you tell me why Imran Khan’s farm house at Bani Gala receives just 8000 as electricity bill where is my 166 sq yard house with no ACs and energy savers received 15000 that too in the month of September??? This shows the reality! And, as a matter of fact, why Taliban Khan’s farmhouse is extended towards the Rawal Lake? He is occupying illegally 500 Sq Yard of public land that he illegally occupied just look at his lawn that is connected to Rawal Lake!!!
    Can you explain why?

    I am seeing that PTI will be elected with the blessings of Establishment and it will be like other IJI of late 80s! Yes, after that who will be in Pakistan? Imran Khan will be living happily ever after in UK with his children! And worst there would be no Pakistan after that!

    >>*I am sorry to repeat myself but your foreign policy understanding and implications are like the rest of your inane babbling, Imran Khan has called for equal ties with the US not war with them their is a difference. the relationship spectrum is a continumm not two polarised points. PTI advocates friendly relations with all neighbours and the commity of nations but holding Pakistan’s interest supreme. Your claim of attending lectures is a lie my friend if you did you wouldnt be so ignorant. His aim of stopping aid and being able to bring self sustainability is a key pillar of the forign relations policy.>>

    Prove how? Send your prove to enchant.of.hope@gmail.com. I will publish it here. Whatever you wrote is beyond facts and just reproduction of Pakistan Studies Books written by Zia. And lie or not Syed Ali Abbas Zaidi can tell the best. Yes, the guy who runs shows for Taliban Khan under the banner of Pakistan Youth Alliance. I see you speaking sheer lies just like they do in the lectures and corner meetings and go to the dance party at Shri Mazari’s afterwards!

    Taliban Khan’s claim about stopping aid is like Qarz Utaro Mulk Sanwaro of Nawaz Sharif… Everyone knows what happened next. I see that you blasted with loud bang here…. Sorry truth is always harsh! LOL

    >>* Imran Khan has time and again called for a political settlement on balochistan, military actions do not work he is already in touch with major baloch dissidents and he believes he can bring them to the negotiating table once the military is rolled back and balochistan gets its fair share of the development budget. He is the only one who has talked about our gas and coal reserves because he is the only one who advocates a stop to foreign aid so again your claim is nothing but a basless lie. There are links available on youtube with him talking about Pakistan’s potential.>>

    Where? Where is the statement of Khan about Shia genocide? As it is said, he blubbers alot but has not presented any practicle plan of the sahring of resources? Can you give references where? Please quote leading news papers only!

    >>Imran Khan has answered all the questions raised by you and i have answered them again if you are truly sincere to pakistan you will look at them with an unbiased point of view but going by the blog content and your level of conversation about him and shireen mazari i would think you will not be able to concede your argument. Free speech is easy to talk about but very hard to practice keep writing blogs while we are out there protecting your right to free speech!!!!!>>

    Imran Khan and you have not answered even a single question except for bringing outdated arguments. Yes, Shri Mazari and her Swimming Pool Scandal and her massive fund embezzlement in Qauid e Azam university is no secret. Whole Islamabad knows about it.

    >> Free speech is easy to talk about but very hard to practice keep writing blogs while we are out there protecting your right to free speech!!!!!>>

    Typical Talibani mentality that is what PTI propagates… Yes, you cannot stop us from free speech by implanting Taliban upon us and you yourself enjoying the pool parties at Bani Gali and Shiri Mazari’s farmhouse with toasts of wine and whiskey. You will read more exposition of Taliban Khan in the future. We are waiting to hear from you again.

    MURDABAAD TALIBAN
    MURDABAAD IMRAN KHAN!

    PAKISTAN ZINDABAAD
    BURGER KHAN MURDABAAD!
