Jundullah — A CIA Backed Outfit



The Chehlum blast in Karachi remains a mystery amongst the lot of mysteries of the series of bombing in Pakistan for years. A lot of different terrorist outfits have been claiming the responsibility of the attack in all these years. So far, the responsibility of twin blasts on the day of Chehlum on 5th February, 2010 hasn’t been claimed by anyone. Earlier, the responsibilities of such particular sectarian violence in the form of blasts have always been accepted by a terrorist outfit Jundullah (Soldiers of God). Since 2003, Jundullah members have been involved in a number of terrorist operations, including mass murder, hostage takings, bombings, raids, car thefts, and other acts of sabotage against civilians and the government of both the countries — Iran and Pakistan. But the latest terror attacks at Chehlum in Karachi are yet to be claimed by them or any other terrorist group. Who did that?


In 2009, Pakistani security forces arrested a senior member of the Jundullah terrorist group Abdolhamid Rigi, who’s the brother of Jundullah leader Abdolmalek Rigi. Pakistani security agencies, after apprehending Abdolhamid Rigi, extradited him to Iran since he was wanted by the Government of Iran. Abdolhamid Rigi was prosecuted in the courts of Iran where he acknowledged the fact that the Jundullah group has been trained and financed by “the US and Zionists“. He was then sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of Iran.


Conspiracy theory, uh? Press TV conducted the interview of Abdolhamid Rigi that explains the situation further.


Why is that we’ve been taking the name of US every time there’s a bomb blast in Pakistan and Iran? Well, it has something to do with the US of course that’s why the populace is exclaiming at times.


In 2007, there was a clear report on Telegraph saying: President George W Bush has given the CIA approval to launch covert “black” operations to achieve regime change in Iran, intelligence sources have revealed. Mr. Bush has signed an official document endorsing CIA plans for a propaganda and disinformation campaign intended to destabilise, and eventually topple, the theocratic rule of the mullahs.


However, the CIA is giving arms-length support, supplying money and weapons, to an Iranian militant group, Jundullah, which has conducted raids into Iran from bases in Pakistan.


It’s quite startling that Pakistani media, on this issue, has been a lot more quiet than usual. However, back in October 2009, Dawn did mention something at the time of catastrophe of Sistan-Baluchistan that killed 10’s of people in Iran. But this isn’t just enough. Dawn, while reporting the news, wasn’t as vocal as it should be, despite that the international media is many times more vocal. Dawn just writes in simple words while reporting the Sistan-Baluchistan catastrophe: But perhaps the most combustible element in this shadowy war of sorts is the US connection.


Why is that the government of Sindh, Karachi — and more precisely the government of Pakistan — has been silent over this issue, I ask? Neither the PPP, nor MQM or ANP ever spoke on it, notwithstanding that, again, there has been all the proofs government of Pakistan has and that the International media is also vocal against Jundullah — the CIA funded organization functioning to create sectarian chaos.


I’m afraid to say that the top leadership of all political parties, including those sitting in London, are known to the facts, but they all are quiet on the issue — including the PPP, ANP, MQM and PML (N, Q). And that again substantiates the fact that the top leadership is sold out.


In a wake of this donnybrook, we need to open the window for these facts and denounce the acts of such double-barreled friendship with US because of their substantiated role in the destabilizing Pakistan.

United We Rant


Dr. Aafia Siddiqui

Dr. Aafia Siddiqui


Today’s headlines as I’m expecting it’d be: President sympathizes for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui and pledged to pursue the case in US High Courts. PM slams the decision and promised to talk to US Government. Nawaz Sharif denounced the court decision. Altaf Hussain, on his telephonic address, expresses his strong concern against the court decision on Dr. Aafia. Siddiqui. Pakistani people are infuriated on the court’s decision. United we rant!


I’ve been following the case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui quite meticulously since the case was put on hearing in the court on 19th January, 2010. I’ve been seeing the action and reaction of the Ghairat Brigade since the time the newses of ‘Prisoner 650’ was published in Pakistani newspaper and jolted the Ghairat Brigade from its roots. Well, not all were jolted; some a la mode liberals, yes the liberals, didn’t feel like paying heed to the issue as for them it was just about an individual, which is inconspicuous when it comes to the nation of 170 million people already stuck in other problems — the big problems more important than Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, as they say. Some were found justifying her abduction by our beloved dear me dear intelligence agencies and army. A horde of them — who’re the supporter of enlightened moderation introduced by the zilch-venerated former president General Pervez Musharraf — are agilely found justifying such villainous foolish action.


When the prosecution started, it was testified that there were no fingerprints of Dr. Aafia on the M4 rifle, as accused by the government of US that she attempted to murder and FBI official while she was captivated in Afghanistan; there were no M-4 bullets, no bullet debris from the M-4 rifle and no bullet holes from the rifle in the room. She was the one who was shot by FBI officer thrice in the abdomen. And due to the urgent medic availability, she survived. She had 3 kids, all were just too young. Only one is recovered. The rest two are still not recovered from the FBI yet after 7 longs years. God knows where they kept her both kids, God knows if they’re even alive or they’ve killed them. Isn’t it cruel? If you belong to a race of man, it’s my understanding that you’ll be condemning such acts of atrocities and injustice by the US courts.


Even the lawyer of Dr. Aafia put forward ahead of the judge during the closing arguments that believing on the accusations of government and FBI agent would simply mean that you’re also denying the simple laws of science.


This constitutes that a poltergeist removed the fingerprints of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui from M4 rifle (which was held by FBI guy as per him), a poltergeist renovated the walls of the room where she was kept, and that poltergeist also removed the debris of the bullet. This is so amazing, no?


This is just not enough. During the hearing, at one occasion Dr. Aafia started to get hyper and wept. Judge Berman removed her from the court room. At another occasion, Judge Berman called a US serviceman to give a testimony. The serviceman started giving the testimony: “Three of my men were killed, along with one Afghan”. The soldier began crying, and judge Berman reached over and handed him a tissue. Where exactly can you smell the discrimination? The trial wasn’t fair as the events went. Judge had sympathies with the US serviceman, but not with the Pakistani national. Do you still receive the situation of injustice willingly or you have an urge to deny it?


Had she been acquitted today, I’m ready to wager that all the leaders of ethnic and national political parties of our country would have been congratulating her, simultaneously asserting that their efforts to retrieve Dr. Aafia have become successful. From the other point of view, we all know that how much our political parties have employed efforts to retrieve her. Every major political party has been busy in power ploys — holding out massive rallies on youm-e-tasees, lawyers movement, playing Sindh card to protect their government; briefly, ranting with a big-league along with awaam — ranting unitedly. But none of the political party ever tried to bring its loyalists on road for a demonstration against the illegal detention and prosecution of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui in US courts. She should have been prosecuted in Pakistani court in accordance with the constitution of Pakistan. But who cares. United we rant — at all the events and instances that favors us to bring us to power. I’m sick of all such opportunist political parties.


Pakistani Government should immediately reject the verdict squarely which is given by US kangaroo courts. Pakistani government should immediately demand Dr. Aafia back from US. She’s a Pakistani citizen and should be prosecuted in Pakistani courts — if she’s guilty. We, Pakistanis, don’t accept the verdict by US courts; besides, it’s against our constitution that pledges to provide security to Pakistan citizen.


This is such a disgraceful event for our nation. I’ve void of words to write more on this unjust. Somehow or other, I’ve managed to understand that we’re, at the most, hellishly proud united Pakistanis — united when we all rant at such events but do nothing fundamentally!

Haunted NRO


NRO & Supreme Court

NRO & Supreme Court


Body Politics of Pakistan needs no definition for diligently alert and watchful people of Pakistan. The others who are affiliated to respective political parties are quite cantankerous to accept any kind of blame on their political parties. And when the question arises that who looted and still looting the nation — interestingly and engrossingly everyone becomes so innocent that they start calling Rooti as Choochi. Not so good, but still worthy enough of causing shame. National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) is one such thing that has again made our leaders substantiate with evidence that either they really are infants that they call Rooti as Choochi or awaam is still in a state of infancy. Possibility of both could also be the case, by chance that it’s Pakistan.


Since the time the list of NRO beneficiaries has been made available to the general public on the directives of Prime Minister Gilani, every political party is asserting that they’re falsely accused of being the beneficiary of NRO. Some 8,041 people have benefited from NRO, out of which 34 are well known and threadbare politicians.


NRO was promulgated on the name of greatest national interest of Pakistan, but is that a way to acquit the criminals of nation without means of a decision making echelon, or without proper justice; is that the way to let go the looters of nation and maintain the status quo each time by giving immunity to the looters of nation? How can this nation progress when the nation itself is bestowing amnesty to the looters. What more disgrace it could ever be that a robber is robbing our home and we’ve set ourselves free to watch the robber and allow him to rob as much as his ability allows him. We’re too generous without principles, no?


An American friend of mine was saying: I actually wanted to write a movie about missing person from Pakistan — and show the world how messed up this whole Bush-created War on Terror has become. My husband is a screenwriter. But he told me that “nobody in Hollywood wants to make movies about the war on terror.” And I am afraid he is right. Americans just want to keep on shopping and living their lives like nothing is wrong. But, Absar, everything is wrong!


After reading her, I gave her words a second thought. Are we not doing the same thing, I ask? We’re living our lives as if nothing is wrong. Yet everything is wrong. We’re still living our lives in a phenomenal disorientation — and the macho-paranoia of saving the grace of our affiliated political parties while always treating them as superior than others. Consequentially, the looters of Pakistan are safe on account of our choice.


The Ghairat Brigade — the people of Pakistan — and the incriminated politicians are, for the most part, still reluctant to accept that they’ve never been a part of corruption; they’ve never sought illegitimate personal gain through actions such as bribery, extortion, cronyism, nepotism, patronage, graft, and embezzlement. . If none of the politician robbed the nation — and I say again, if those politicians aren’t the troublemakers — then who did? A poltergeist very likely, no? If everyone is guiltless, then we can always be skeptical about a poltergeist. People missed this fact. This could be the case when Pakistan is concerned since the blame game is a favorite political game of Pakistani politicians, political activist, and the Ghairat Brigade i.e. awaam.


National Reconciliation Ordinance bestowed the would-never-come-again opportunity to our leaders; it bestowed them a license to loot once again. The flippancy of awaam should come to an end, besides. When will the Pakistanis get relieve from the corrupt apparatus? There’s a way out of this, I can see: That’s “Justice” — our Supreme Court. The ball is in the court of our judiciary and only judiciary can adjudicate the fate of the looters of the nation. We’ve strived hard for the freedom of judiciary for this day — to see the justice. Justice is all we want, we want to see a new system in Pakistan while penalizing by law the looters of nation. Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, are you listening?

It’s all about Pakistan’s Politics



My beautiful country, Pakistan. I always thought it to be more beautiful than ever, but it always became more worst than ever. I always wanted to see peace, it struck down at war internally; I wanted to see economic growth, instead I saw recession; I wanted to see character education, instead I saw immorality; I wanted to see political stability, the instability exacerbated to more; I wanted to see reduction in poverty level in all these years, but nothing.


The political situation in Pakistan is directly proportional to all the issues concerning Pakistan, may it be pertinent to economic, security, law and order, education, poverty, religion, social, and technological issues.


Pakistan political cartoon on awaam and leader
Each day I hear declarations coming from our political leaders repeating one thing over again, but sagaciously, and simultaneously deviously in different ways. Are we primitive enough not to conceive what our political leaders are up to – or may be we’re so much used to of being a part of this famous pac-man game in which pac-man nourishes itself by eating pac-dots. Pac-man is often stonewalled by ghosts in his mission. We can equate pac-man with Pakistan’s political leaders and those ghosts who stonewall pac-man can be equated with the amiable paragons of Pakistan. If you see from the eyes of pac-man – you’ll find ghosts as ghost; from an opposite view, it’ll be contrary. Pac-dots can be equated with the people of Pakistan — Pakistanis.


I often think, why we keep betting on the same betted horse who gives nothing but bringing dishonor again and again to the country. Every time we bet on the betted horse, we demonstrate ourselves as a matchless nation – a nation that makes itself fall behind by duping itself.


One of the salient feature of Pakistanis is they’re excellent in complying contrary to one of the famous phrase — “Two wrongs do not constitute a right.” Pakistanis always endeavor to find all necessary and possible means that could pave a way to satisfy their egos.


For instance, if I argue with any Musharraf’s supporter about missing person or Bajaur air-strike resulted in the loss of 100’s of innocents – most probably I’ll receive a reply that missing people is just a myth and Bajaur air-strike is nothing – a lot much worst is done by current government — yet again a contrariety to the phrase delineated above. Possibly, I’ll get some response that it was in the larger interest of country. Oh well, when a Pakistani is out of arguments and is not willing to accept the fundamental truth behind the argument, he/she always comes up with this statement. This phrase has grown over too much now. It’s not our fault that we can’t be flexible enough to accept right as right and wrong as wrong, it’s but miraculous that we can’t understand.


In another example, if I ask any MQM supporter what is your main reason of supporting MQM, give me just one supporting point? I, most probably will get this reply that MQM has done a lot for Karachi. That’s what I call Lakeer key Faqeer — the protagonist keeps the beaten path. If I ask a second question that goes like: what’s your stance about MQM carrying arms? And I know I’ll hear back that other political parties do also keep arms so as MQM — once again demonstrating contrary to the phrase “Two wrongs do not make a right.” Hence, these explanations are vernacular amongst Pakistanis.


In another example, if I ask any PML(N) supporter about his stance on killing of so many people of Karachi – call themselves Muhajirs. I certainly will get a reply that MQMers are terrorists and funded by India so they deserve it. That’s another top-drawer nonsensical reply I’ll get. So here we’re merely obsessed politically, forgetting the brutal killing of 100’s of innocents died in the past due to political grievances. In an opposite way, if I ask from MQM why they don’t like PML(N), I’ll get another vernacular response that Nawaz Sharif is a killer of so many Muhajirs and a corrupt person. But how come Altaf Hussain is a saint – this question will tickle my mind obviously. I won’t ask this question as I know it’d be futile to debate with the obsessed protagonists. But yeah, I sure would expose the hypocrisy while asking a crisscross question that why MQM is in alliance with PPP who’s also said to be the killers of so many Urdu speaking Muhajirs – claimed by MQM. To blot out the hypocrisy of MQM, I’ll get a reply that BB is dead so we’re now having anew relation with PPP, and particularly Zardari. Or may be I’ll get a reply which is often reiterated by our politicians as well that goes like: “Qoum key wasee tar mafad mein”– translated as: “In the larger interest of country.” Our (Pakistani) mind-set works this way, whether to admit or not.


While I see the whole political structure of Pakistan, I find that our political system isn’t steadfast. Our leaders say something and does the other thing. For instance, everyone political party talks about internal peace in the nation, yet all of them are arms-laden — not even following Pakistan Arms Ordinance of 1965. It doesn’t yet make a wee bit of sense that peace is actually possible when civilians — mostly uneducated — are arms-laden.


In another instance, we see MQM always talking a lot in against of feudal, but the same MQM demonstrated as a hands-on political party electing Zardari in the presidential elections. Oh, I forget to add it’s in the larger interest of nation.


Nawaz Sharif is a twice elected Prime Minister of Pakistan. In his both the term, we’ve witnessed an hostile opposition against the political parties who didn’t support him. Nawaz Sharif’s role in Kargil war is also controversial. The number of corruption charges against Nawaz Sharif is also well-known to many. Therefore, I believe he’s not a competent person to hold the office of Prime Minister, not even a member of Parliament.


Pakistan political cartoon on awaam and leader.
Pakistan’s politics isn’t the politics of principle. Political leaders are merely running after the power, and we as a nation keep on trusting them. We always trust them that’s why we elect them over again and they again show their competency and excellency of looting the nation. What these leaders have given to us? Seriously, if we see our nation today, we’ll see a division of borders and thoughts amongst Pakistanis. The seeds of racism and hatred is sowed by our political leaders in Past and the current political leaders have watered the seeds of it – helping the plant of hatred, racism and division of thoughts to grow more. MQM majorly represents Urdu Speaking call themselves Muhajirs, PML(N) majorly represents Punjab province, ANP majorly represents NWFP province. MQM doesn’t like PML(N) and vice versa so automatically it creates a good enough hatred and sometimes racism amongst two provinces Sindh and Punjab. ANP doesn’t like MQM, although keeps on trying to patch up unlike PML(N). But while the political rivalry amongst MQM and ANP takes place which we often witness – then we see a good enough hatred from both sides – and often it leads to racism and discrimination within the nation. And moreover, the rate of education in our country paves a way for our political leaders to make use of uneducated people, utilizing the same ethnic, racial, and linguistic card. Is this all good what we see today? We’ve to understand this fact that these political leaders have given us nothing, instead created a fraction amongst.


Understanding Pakistan’s politics is very easy. Just don’t be self-centred about one’s city or locality; think from larger perspective — from an eye of P-a-k-i-s-t-a-n-i. Also don’t need to act contrary to the famous phrase delineated above as well “Two wrongs do not make a right”. Call wrong as wrong, and accept right as right. If you’re being given with the option to select a lesser evil from the lot of evils, reject all; Evil is always an evil — lesser or higher evil are merely the attributes of evilness. And last, but certainly not the least, use your own mind to discern the things – not the same mind that political leaders use.
