President of Pakistan?
He gave the example of Justice Javed Iqbal of the apex court, who was hearing a case against the ISI and his parents were found dead after a judicial remark few months back.
"If a Major of the ISI went to a judge, justice would get killed instantly," he said, adding that I should refrain from a legal battle with the powerful accused whom a policeman declared Station House Officers (SHOs) of Pakistan.
Unfortunately, they've told my parents and other family members the same harassing thing—thus they're very afraid of the secret agencies, their pawns. Therefore, my traumatized father, who underwent a head surgery recently, has started counting different reasons for his 'mild' brain hemorrhage instead of the 13-month long torture.
"I want to knock the door of the court," I had told the management of my employees, Dawn Media Group, when Senior Manager Human Resources Khurshid Aizid and Senior General Manager Tahir Owais came to my home with a carrot-and-stick strategy. "My case is a test of the independent judiciary too."
Through the legal system, I really want an end to this nasty spy culture in Pakistan where common citizens are being targeted and terrorized while terrorists are being protected and used as pawns. I want to ask the judges why our security agencies are being used against innocent citizens. Why is there state-sponsored acts of terror? I'll do this taboo thing come what may.
If you've read my previous blogs, you would be aware of the details of the ongoing psychological warfare against my family and me. In this post, let's try to understand the nasty spy culture in Pakistan.
“We can produce a certificate from a London rehabilitation center where Altaf was treated for a mental disorder,” the newspaper reported, saying that the MQM parliamentarians were even more vicious in the verbal skullduggery. The MQM lawmakers did not spare the daughters of the Sharif family, and resorted to 'crude' and ‘uncivilized’ language to castigate the PML-N leaders. “We know whose daughter had run away with whom,” a leader was quoted. “We know whose daughters have been flirting with whom… and we are also aware of what was recovered from (ex-prime minister) Nawaz Sharif’s bedroom after military coup in 1999—the nation knows that when (Chief Minister Punjab) Shahbaz Sharif was arrested, sex-enhancement tools and drugs were recovered from his room.”
After hearing a TV debate of PML-N and MQM participants, I felt as if criticizing their leaders, particularly Altaf Hussain, is like committing 'blasphemy' for which Pakistan has capital punishment! The leaders of both parties were the brainchild of a military dictator, thus their parties are unofficially political wings of the military, controlled through the ISI. They both are camouflaging parties but can't hide their tilt towards the 'rightist' ideologues.
Unfortunately, on this occasion, the PML-N and MQM both became victims of a nasty trick which they had been using against others for a long time! They became victims of the visionless ISI strategy like Colonel Imam and Khalid Khwaja – two former ISI officials and mentors of the Taliban, who were reportedly killed by their own 'jihadist' protégés.
|Altaf Hussain being treated |
for mental disorder?
Earlier, The Terrorland blogs had revealed the shocking news how ISI officials kidnapped an investigative journalist, Umer Cheema, and "sexually abused him on camera". This was the typical way of humiliating an investigative reporter in our militarized and Talibanized society. Mr. Cheema has sought justice but nothing has been done so far. Forget it nothing will happen: this is the traditional advice for similar victims in Pakistan.

Many journalists say that the ISI was completely involved in the recent election of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) and Pervez Shoukat was reselected along with his nephew Adeel Raza of Dawn.
So how can the so-called apex journalistic body raise its voice against the spy agencies which are involved in kidnapping, torturing and killing of journalists especially in Balochistan province. In such a situation, we can only sing Martin Niemöller's poem First they came... although PFUJ president can't understand it—professional and truthful journalists have been sidelined. Today morons, morally and intellectually bankrupt, agents of secret agencies, real estate agents and professional criminals have become leaders of journalists. And Pakistan has become the most dangerous place for journalists in the world. Indeed it's a great dilemma!
Anyway, I'll no more accuse and abuse anyone! Use of abusive language is a part of the military culture. As the military has ruled Pakistan most of the time since 1947, so, psychologically, the civilian members of the ruling class also try to copy their masters without wearing the graceful khaki uniform. The same are doing some journalists now especially the militarized Urdu columnists.
Such a behavior is not new in our society especially in the corridors of power. However, the common people, who are always kept at a distance by the ruling class, were first shocked by the recent incidents but now they seem confused. Some seem amused!

of Pakistan's ‘free’ media?
The ISI should change its traditional inhuman tactics which are destroying generations in Pakistan. This thing is also damaging for the Armed Forces and the country itself too. The policies of military dictators like General Zia and General Musharraf should be abandoned. The coming military leadership should disassociate itself from the current and retired generals especially generals Aslam Baig and Hameed Gul, who are the real narcissist and schizophrenic people on earth. They've lied and made an entire institution sick. Why the serving generals act like God in Pakistan? Why even the retired generals, who made billions at the cost of the nation, couldn't be hold accountable for their crimes?
The ISI should stop funding the so-called religious and journalistic televangelists, and the cyber networks that are working in Pakistan, North America and Europe—getting millions every month for doing nothing. They should also abandon the networks which make foolish propaganda material and get millions from the tax payers.
These so-called friends of the military establishment in the mainstream media are actually enemies of the nation. Sources say that some of them have even written books about the foolishness of the generals—and are waiting for their 'demise' to publish their ‘best seller’ memoirs.
Wake up, generals! It’s the second decade of the 21st century! Killing and harassment of innocent people and journalists will not work anymore. You may think no one is daring to ask any question—but remember: you're under the global microscope! Everything is being monitored by the global community in a globalized world.
Promotion of cruelty and visionless agenda of the military establishment in their traditional foolish ways will not work anymore. As a student of social psychology, I think change in the behavior of the military leadership can repair the damages. Let Pakistan out of your clutches as policymakers. Be true and professional soldiers. Real democracy can make Pakistan a global leader. (Images via Google )
