Habib Sulemani — 20 months of solitary confinement

The cage-bird twitters while the writer twits... and says: “My twits are for liberty!”

Facsimile of Habib Sulemani's Twitter official account.
HABIB R. Sulemani has completed 20 months of solitary confinement and has entered in the 21st month but yet the Pakistani civilian government is silent. The human rights and journalistic bodies are also keeping mum due to the terror of the secret agencies.

Mr. Sulemani, a writer and journalist who lives in Rawalpindi, has never come out of his home since  March 29, 2010, when the first attempt on his life was made, details of which have been given in the previous posts of The Terrorland group blogs.

Currently, he is using Twitter to express himself regularly. His personal views regarding the Pakistani government, as usual, are very strong especially when he talks about the military establishment, which, according to him, is not responsible for his personal suffering only but also for the miseries of the over 184 million people of the terrorized Pakistan.

“I write truthfully,” says Mr. Sulemani in his Twitter introduction. “Don’t follow me on Twitter, criminal ISI and MI will follow you in real life! But in tyranny, silently, keep an eye on MY TWITS FOR LIBERTY!” 

Here are Mr. Sulemani’s twits from his official account that started on June 25, 2011.

14- Generals Kayani, 59; Pasha, 59; Abbas, 58; don’t realize how tired they are! Retirement is a privilege too, elderly generals!

15- After Awan, Mirza, Qureshi and Haqqani, if Malik goes off board, Gen Kayani’ll bargain with Sharifs for Presidency. Ah, Senate polls!
