One of my early mentors use to tell me that religion was a sham........ (i) a cover under which much crime was committed, and (ii) the automatic closer of all avenues of rational human thought and inquiry about basic and fundamental issues in life that affect us all (religious fatalism)..."Ah this is God's will"......"This must be Karma".....thus further facilitating great and small crimes, injustices, inequalities, sheer absurdities, stupidity and backwardness. I have remained true to this advice from my mentor from an early age to this day.....and he was of course right.
When governments start using the religious blasphemy issue in order to impose censorship on freedom of expression then you have to ask...........whats up? Whats the real agenda hear? Whats actually going on?
Is Zardari bhen a Pak Muslim who is so concerned about offending the virtues of Islam that he must act against Youtube, or Twitter or Facebook? These sites played a crucial role in the Iranian Green revolution against the puppet mullahs installed by the USA/UK/France/Israel.
Is Zardari Bhen a Pak Muslim who never looted billions from the State coffers of Pakistan for many years through his wife?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who may have had a hand in killing his brother-in-law, just because he might have been a political threat to his wife's leadership role within the PPP?
Is Zardari bhen the Pak Muslim guy who has just pardoned Rehman Malik, a certified crook, and basically told ALL certified crooks in the Pakistani government that they can commit any and all crimes in Pakistan, and Zardari Bhen will be there to pardon and protect them?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who by default is waging war against ordinary Pakistanis in the NWFP, by not pursuing alternative methods of conflict resolution?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who is proud to be a puppet of Washington, accepting ALL their dictates with daily meetings with the American ambassador Anne Paterson?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who is facilitating American forces in Pakistan to attack and kill many innocent civilians, and then lying about their actual existence with a straight face?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who as President of Pakistan publicly wanted to grope a foreign female representative in NY?
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who has allowed extremist Christian fundamentalist forces into Pakistan to act as a law unto themselves.........Blackwater/Dyncorps/XE.......killing innocent Pakistani women and children at will? .......its leaders want to, as Christian Fundamentalists, “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,”
Is Zardari Bhen the Pak Muslim guy who has invited foreign mercenaries into Islamabad to protect him because he can't trust his own people?
Is Zardari bhen the Pak Muslim guy who has gone into purdah, on the advice of Anne Paterson, thinking that out of sight out of mind?
Na! Zardari and his Kleptocractic cronies are scared that finally the Pakistani people might one day wake up to the crimes of his administration, and remove him and the Americans from Pakistan finally.
Offended by one page in Facebook, or on Youtube or Twitter has got NOTHING TO DO WITH IT ..........................Secular urban Pakistanis Blasphem against Mohammed and Islam on a daily basis.......I know they do.
Zardari bhen and his kleptocratic cronies certainly do.
The Pakistan mainstream media such as PTV, Geo, Dawn and the Jang group don't offer the real truth because they have been bought by Western intelligence, as has been the ISI. ........as have the leading politicians...........as have the top military brass. What these do against simple ordinary Pakistani folk is standard formula, misleading, and misdirection by:
1. Introducing conspiracy narrative that is so complicated that ordinary Pakistanis become confused.
2. By offering fake sorrow, "Oh What can we do, this is bad, so sad.....but alas we are powerless", rather than saying that the 180 million Pakistanis are powerful, and can take destiny into their own hands.....encourage, empower, proffer constructive clear simple advice, instigate and revolutionize.
3. Sustaining the myth of "al-Qaeda", for America, and global International terrorism.
4. Not highlighting the links between the military and the Taliban, and ALL Islamist groups in Pakistan. Islamists didn't just appear from no where, they were created, funded, armed and guided by the Pakistan military as proxy forces, and often encouraged by the USA since the late 1970's, just as the USA military uses Christian fundamentalist in Blackwater/Dyncorp/XE.
5. That the Pakistani military actually carries out a lot of the terrorism within Pakistan under the principles of Gladio.
6. The security cooperation with the USA will ultimately lead to the breakup of Pakistan. Friendship with the USA has in no way benefited Pakistan over a span of 50 years, in fact quite the reverse. Yet the bought commentators of Pakistan remain ever hopeful that this fundamental paradigm will change for the good, tomorrow, next week, next month or maybe next year inshalah.
7. America has negative intentions towards Pakistan, and in the long term could invade Pakistan under the pretext of pursuing terrorists.
8. America wants to secure Pakistan's nukes for Israel.
The ONLY people who highlight the truth of Pakistan's present reality is people writing on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube..........because they have not been bought. On the other hand most of these sights are pre-occupied with very mundane trivia.......... Pakistan government by its recent actions has shown that it is very nervous about this new phenomenon.
