Peer Shahab deserves position of advisor to chief minister KPK Pakistan

Peer Shahab Shah is a former journalist colleague of mine and is office bearer of Awami National Party, he is among the true disciples of Khan Abdul Ghafar Khan committed to philosophy of nonviolence, propounded and preached by Muhatima Gandhi and Khan Abdul Ghafar Khan few decades ago. During martial law years of General Musharaf Peer Shahab had valiantly struggled to curb corruption and to restore fundamental rights of the people, I still remember years ago when a library building built by British rulers of subcontinent when demolished and a multi story market construction was underway in it, valiant Shahab had pointed out anomalies and corruption done in its construction.




Today when I came across him near the office of a local weekly in Kohat, we both had a chat for a while and he had told me straight way that in current position which he is holding in ANP can not serve the people better, though demand regarding his appointment as advisor to chief minister KPK Pakistan has been made in the press by ANP local leaders of Kohat, but so far his appointment is not finalized for the said position.



During conversation with me he had revealed his services for ANP and people of Kohat which were quite commendable, the most interesting part of his revelations was his lawful struggle to clean the name of Khan Abdul Wali Khan which was maligned by an author of the book titled as ‘From Parliament to Bazaar Hussan’ eventually case filed by him against the author was won by Khan Abdul Wali Khan, and finally the author of the said book was forgiven by Khan Abdul Wali Khan.



Peer Shahab is a committed ANP local leader and is quite willing to serve as advisor to chief minister KPK, ANP leadership if consider him for the said job it will be a good breakthrough for a middle class politician and will be an act of encouragement for other ANP leaders too, and will ultimately strengthen ANP in Southern districts of KPK Pakistan.

Pakistan’s political leadership flexible behavior averts the chances of possible political instability in Pakistan

Achievement of political stability through increased understanding between PPP lead coalition partners is underway in Pakistan, PML (N) and PPP are coalition partners in Punjab provincial assembly, in central legislature PML (N) will never opt for vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Gailani, if PML (N) have opted for any such move in National assembly they would have lost their government in Punjab province of Pakistan. Both PPP and PML (N) are interlocked politically that is why PPP leadership enjoys stable rule in the center.




Prime Minister Gailani had adopted quite flexible behavior and has reversed his decision regarding increase in oil prices and is also showing flexible stance on RGST issue in consequence of it MQM has joined back the PPP lead coalition, but has refused to include its ministers in federal cabinet.



PPP is having roots in masses and can get fresh mandate in case of fresh elections, history of PPP is filled with electoral victories, because the educated leadership of it always opt to work for resolution of the real issues which are concern of the masses in Pakistan. Socialistic measures benefiting government employees, industrial and workers, journalists, academicians, tenants, laborers, and other oppressed people were taken during first tenure of Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto of PPP in such a comprehensive manner that PPP has become virtually the only political party which cares for the needs of the people of Pakistan and avoids wasting their time by initiating anti people measures.



PML (N) track record is also good, it was emerged victorious during general elections with a heavy mandate prior to the take over of General Parvez Musharaf, and also works for the benefit of the people of Pakistan, because of the monopoly of Industrialist Sharif family PML (N) is so far unable to win popular support among the masses up to the scale of PPP, when General Parvez Musharaf staged a coup to ouster PML (N) elected government no large scale unrest in public was witnessed and no large agitation movement was against Musharaf was launched by supporters of PML (N), plus point of PML (N) is flexible attitude of it leadership, which prevents dead lock and negotiated settlements of political problems of national importance becomes possible.



President Asif Ali Zardari has taken popular measures like restoration of jobs of ousted government employees during Musharaf era, and by giving permanent jobs to contract employees in PIA and other government organizations, thus confidence of the people in ability of PPP leadership regarding protection of their legitimate interest has been restored up to larger extent, PPP will become more able to win votes in next general election by taking more popular measures of the same nature.



Prime Minister Gailani’s visit of MQM headquarters in Karachi to win them back into coalition reflects the willingness and ability of PPP leadership regarding continuity of democratic set up in Pakistan, MQM leadership has also proved that they can be flexible in the larger interest of the people of Pakistan, which has paved the way for further strengthening of democratic institutions and stable political system in Pakistan.

Apparently Governor Punjab’s murder is a consequence of growing extremism in Pakistan

Brutal murder of Governor Punjab Mr. Salman Taseer by his own body guard this week in Islamabad capital of Pakistan has disclosed the high degree of extremism prevails in Pakistani society, ‘his killer body guard Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri is a Punjab police commando and was assigned the duty of providing security to the governor Taseer along with his three other colleagues by Punjab provincial government,’ information minister Qamar Zaman Qaira has said. ‘The Governor was attacked by his own body guard, when he came out from a restaurant situated in F6/3 sector of Islamabad after having lunch, critically injured governor was rushed to the hospital where he had succumbed to his injuries, postmortem report reflects that 26 bullet injuries were found in his body, after assassinating the governor his body guard had handed over himself to security officials and has submitted his crimet,’ media reports.




‘Young body guard of Governor Taseer was infuriated by the Governor’s stance on blasphemy law,’ media reports. Normally bodyguards act swiftly to save the VIP but ‘his other three body guards have apparently made no effort to save the Governor,’ retired secretary interior has reportedly said.



‘Governor Salman Taseer was senior leader of PPP and was appointed as Governor Punjab by General Parvez Musharaf, he was buried in Lahore with full state honor, his funeral prayers were attended by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gailani including thousands of other dignitaries held in Governor House Lahore under strict security arrangements on Thursday,’ media reports.



‘To provide fool proof security to President of Pakistan Mr. Asif Ali Zardari necessary changes are made in his security staff,’ media reports. ‘Extremis have inculcated extremism in government servants too, it has become evident by the murder of Governor Punjab by his own body guard,’ media reports.

Current political scenario in Pakistan

Campaign carried out regarding justification of one man rule as pre requisite for development on certain private TV channels in Pakistan is attracting certain class of viewers, a viewer has told me, Lenin and Stalin have developed Soviet Union in all respects, Pakistan also needs a Stalin to get developed.




In democracy where freedom of expression is their one can only counter such campaigns through logical argument, but the disinformation campaigns can not be countered through logical argument only, since last one week or so a private TV channel and an Urdu daily published from Karachi were spreading news regarding collapse of PPP lead coalition government, yesterday the Urdu daily came up with a headline that with departure of MQM from coalition Prime Minister Gailani has lost majority support in parliament, the funny aspect of the whole episode is that Prime Minister still enjoys the absolute majority support in Parliament and no real threat of vote of no confidence does exist, in presence of PML(N) ninety members of parliament on his side.



To further strengthen his position Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gailani had held meetings with PML (N) and PML (Q) leadership in Lahore yesterday, and has refuted all the rumors spread in media regarding collapse of PPP lead coalition government. The disinformation campaign against him was either based on ignorance of certain people whom were unable to get the real statistics regarding existing members of parliament of PPP lead coalition government, or the campaign was carried out to send some shock waves to stock market in Pakistan.



Misuse of print and electronic media to spread rumors and disinformation campaigns creates uncertainty and also tarnishes image of a country abroad, speculations based on wrong information also affects the economy too, media men must act in more responsible manner to strengthen democracy in Pakistan, because no legal measures or logical arguments can reverse the adverse affects of disinformation campaigns carried out in media on such a large scale. Through such practices media also loose its credibility and media industry also get collapsed eventually.



Disinformation campaign including projection of one man rule as antidote for all ills of Pakistani society in print and electronic media depicts that some hidden hands are creating conducive conditions for dictatorship in Pakistan, it will be prudent for democratically elected representatives to act in intelligent manner to defeat possible conspiracy against democracy in Pakistan, by settling all their differences through normal means.

Punjab province of Pakistan including some parts of NWFP are covered with fog since last few weeks, road accidents due to low visibility in certain hours of the day has caused many accidents, last week daughter and son in law of seasoned bureaucrat Mr. Ahmed Rasool Bangash were injured in road accident on motorway, when high speed vehicles started colliding with each other, many others were also injured in Punjab in fog related accidents.



Political climate in Pakistan is also quite polluted, rampant false allegations against Prime Minister Gailani and President Asif Ali Zardari are focus of debate in public circles, and friends of both are of the view that someone compels Premier Gailani to take unpopular decisions like increase in oil prices, despite of abundant oil available within Pakistan in OGDC, MOL and other oil companies explored oil wells.



Another interesting development during the New Year was rallies conducted by Aman Itihad in which participants were demanding implementation of social contract from government. Madam Rakshanda Naz of Aurat Foundation in her speech during the rally in Peshawar capital of KPK have demanded implementation of existing social contract and raised her voice for restoration of fundamental rights of the people, provincial information Minister of KPK Mian Iftikhar Hussain had also attended and addressed the rally. Aman Itihad rallies were held in all the capital cities of four provinces in Pakistan.
