Do or die — 4 options for unified state pillars to sack the generals

The Terrorland Special Report

PILLARS OF THE STATE: President Zardari, PM Gilani, 
Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida and Chief Justice 
of Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhry.
BRAVO! Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani finally took the courage and warned the gang of three rogue generals of the Pakistan Army who are allegedly involved in political activism. Mr. Gilani said in the House that the elected Parliament would not accept “a state within the state” indicating towards the military establishment. He also exposed the military-dominated Osama bin Laden Commission’s hidden efforts to protect the real culprits who provided a safe heaven to the Al Qaeda leader, and allowed him to operate from Pakistani - a house near the Kakul Military Academy in Abbotabad.



Pakistani people believe that the political activism of three serving generals of the Pakistan Army – Army Chief Gen. Ishfaq Parvez Kayani, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt-Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha and Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) head Maj-Gen. Athar Abbas – has put the future of the military, democracy and country in danger.

After the warning of the Prime Minister, the next day, Army Chief Gen. Kayani said that he was not planning a takeover. The same day, Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry also said that no military takeover was possible in his (Justice Chaudhry’s) presence, stressing that Pakistan will now have supremacy of the Constitution. Then former prime minister Nawaz Sharif said that the genie of the army and ISI’s intervention needed to be bottled up for stability of democracy in Pakistan.

Earlier, the ruling Pakistan People's Party-sponsored blog had claimed that three Punjabis – Mr. Sharif, Justice Chaudhry and Gen. Kayani – were playing a "dangerous game" against democracy and Pakistan, and had requested the Parliament to remove the Chief Justice of Pakistan for allegedly playing in the hands of Army Chief Gen. Kayani.

Whatever the fact may be, but looking at the track record of the three accused generals since the beginning, it's the demand of the majority of the over 184 million people of Pakistan to remove the three accused generals to save the military as a national institution.

"There are better and professional soldiers in the Army to lead as Army Chief," said a retired military office. "Gen. Kayani, Pasha and Abbas have become politicians in the uniform. That is why the country's security has become a national challange."

Generals lost trust of the nation: The people of Pakistan have been asking many questions about the activities of the accused generals, some of them are given here:


BONES OF CONTENTION:  Army Chief Gen. Kayani, ISI 
boss Lt-Gen. Pasha and ISPR guru Maj-Gen. Abbas.
1- Why the minor part of the so-called memo in the Military-gate – allegedly seeking American help to stop a feared military coup in Pakistan – has been taken to the Supreme Court?

2- Why the major part of the military-gate – ISI chief's seeking help of Arab countries for staging a military coup in Pakistan – is being ignored by the apex court?

3- Why the ISI spread the news that Al-Qaeda may kidnap a senior member (Justice Javed Iqbal) of the Osama bin Laden commission?

4- Why the investigations of Osama bin-Laden’s presence in Pakistan and assassination of journalist Saleem Shahzad are going so slow but the ISI wants a an "immediate decision" in the so-called memo case?

5- Who is using Iran Khan as a bargaining-chip to force Nawaz Sharif to be an ally of the accused generals?

6- How Nawaz Sharif – who had been made hostage in his Raiwand farmhouse – suddenly got liberated and started addressing public rallies even in Sindh, the base of the ruling PPP? 

7- Who is funding the anti-government public rallies in the country? 

8- Who allows leaders of banned religious organizations to participate in anti-government rallies?

9- What kind of new political alliance is in the minds of the three accused generals to complete their hidden mission? 

10- Millions are being spent by the ISI to form new alliances like the IJI which can prove fatal for the country? 

The people know the answer. But Army Chief Gen. Kayani, ISI chief Gen. Pasha and the military's media war chief Gen. Athar Abbas seem clueless in this regard!

Charge-sheet against generals: There are plenty of allegations against the accused generals – Army Chief Gen. Kayani, ISI chief Gen. Pasha and the military's media war chief Gen. Athar Abbas seem clueless in this regard. Some of them are underneath:

1- Selling Pakistan-controlled Gilgit-Baltistan region to China so that the neighboring country could support a military coup like it supports the regimes in North Korea and Myanmar.

2- Making a "state within the state" by violation of the Constitution; conspiracy against the elected government; seeking help from foreign countries to stage a coup in Pakistan.  

3- Sheltering international terrorists like Osama bin Laden and making the whole political and judicial systems of Pakistan hostage for the last four years.

4- Involvement in high profile assassinations including former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, Governor Punjab Salman Taseer, Cabinet Minister Shahbaz Bhatti, elderly parents of Supreme Court judge Justice Javed Iqbal, Major-General Ameer Faisal Alvi, journalist Syed Saleem Shahzad, Col. Imam, Javed Khwaja, forcing Shumaila Faheem (widow of Faheem Shamshad who was killed by an American Raymond Davis in Lahore) to take poison to pressurize the American government, and other criminal cases.

5- Besides the massacre of students at the Lal Masjid (Red Mosque), killing of Shia Muslims in Quetta, Bajore and other places; attacks on the Ahmadis and the war crimes in Swat and Fata.

6- The generals are also accused of committing crimes against humanity by arranging terrorist attacks on civilians and military targets in the country as a part of their so-called “brinkmanship strategy” to show the world that Pakistan was also under attack from the so-called Taliban, an effort to get more dollars.

7- The three generals are allegedly involved in the murder plot of journalist Habib R. Sulemani and his family members, which was exposed in the first phase of the planned systematic killings.

What can be done? Enough is enough, people say in the terrorized country. If the elected President, Prime Minister, Parliament, Supreme Court and leaders of all political parties still behave like a terrorized submissive servant, then it will prove their death in silence—not only political but physical demise too as many believe that the accused generals are ruthless killers. "Yes, just see the track record of the generals," said an reporter in Peshawar.

Mr. Sulemani had suggested on the Twitter: “Army, ISI, ISPR chiefs encroachment: President, PM & Parliament must tell whole truth to the nation before taking action to save Pakistan!” Therefore, the elected and non-elected leadership of Pakistan along the Supreme Court of the country should dare to speak the truth to the nation before sacking the three generals to save the country. Truth is more powerful than the guns of criminal generals in the world.

"If Army Chief Gen Kayani imposes martial law, Pakistani military along the people & world will resist it." So, there are four options to take action against the 'ruthless' powerful generals:

1- President Asif Ali Zardari can dismisses or retire the accused generals and appoint new Army, ISI and ISPR chiefs as the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of Pakistan. Indeed there would be the new breed of generals who would follow former Armey Chief Jehangir Kiramat, who always respected the orders of the elected government according to the Constitution.

2- If the President is too much afraid of sacking the almighty generals, then through the Supreme Court the job can be done. And the people of Pakistan believe that the military will follow the orders of their political leaders and court not accused officers.

3- If the apex court is also unable to bell the cunning cats, then the Parliament should show that it’s not a “rubber stamp” of the ISI and should take a bold and historic action against the generals, who have become isolated in the entire world due to their alleged illegal activities. Pakistan will get global respect in this way only.

4- It's possible, as The Terrorland had written earlier, that the Corps Commander of the Pakistan Army force Gen. Kayani, Gen. Pasha and Gen. Abbas to resign gracefully.

  1. سیاستداں جذباتی ہے اور چھوٹی سے چھوٹی بات پر بھی وہ اپنے ہی برادری کے آدمی کے اگلے پچھلے کرتوت بازار میں لے آتا ہے اور پھر جوابی بھانڈ بازی شروع ہوجاتی ہے۔ جو زبان کل تک دوسرے کے لئے رطب السان ہوتی ہے وہی زبان زہر اگلنے لگتی ہے اور پھر اسی زبان پر دوبارہ شہد مل لیا جاتا ہے۔

    لیکن جرنیل چاہے ریٹائرڈ ہو یا حاضر سروس۔ جو تنقید و تبصرہ ہوتا ہے وہ اندر خانے اور کاک ٹیل یا چائے پر ہوتا ہے اور اگر کوئی اختلافی بات باہر بھی نکلتی ہے تو بڑے کنٹرولڈ انداز میں نکلتی ہے۔

    سیاستداں تو ایک دوسرے کو ماضٰی و حال کی ’ایکسرے ٹیبل‘ پر لٹانے میں کبھی دیر نہیں لگاتے لیکن کیا آپ نے کبھی سنا کہ یحیی خان نے ایوب خان کے کپڑے گلی میں دھوئے ہوں یا ضیا الحق نے ایوب اور یحیی کی ذات پر تنقید کی ہو یا مشرف نے ضیا ، یحیی ، جنرل نیازی اور ایوب کے لتے لئے ہوں۔

    سب نے سیاستدانوں کو نشانہ بنایا اور سیاستدانوں نے بھی سیاستدانوں کو نشانہ بنایا۔ جن جرنیلوں نے اپنی سوانح عمریاں اور یاداشتیں لکھیں ان میں بھی وہ اگر اپنے کسی ساتھی جرنیل پر تنقید کرتے ہیں تو وہ کچھ یوں ہوتی ہے کہ ہاں ان کا یہ فیصلہ غلط تھا۔اصل میں وہ ایسے نہیں تھے لیکن حالات اور فلاں فلاں ساتھیوں نے ان سے یہ یہ کروا دیا۔۔۔۔واحد مثال مشرف کا آخری دور ہے جب چند ریٹائرڈ فوجی افسروں نے مشرف پر تنقید کی اور پھر خول میں بند ہو گئے۔
