We are sure you studied hard and learned a lot. Be humble.
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto advised your mother to do twice more than what he had done. It is up to you to do more. Meet the people of Pakistan. Travel up and down, North and South. Live in a village. Drink the dirty water in Sindh and eat food on Food Street in Lahore. Enjoy the nightlife of Karachi and the Chapli kababs of Peshawar. Visit the 7000 year old agricultural site in Mehergarh Baluchistan and meet the sardars and the youth. Go to Azad Kashmir stand on the Cease Fire Line and in a Reaganesque regal manner scream at occupied Kashmir “You will be liberated-Kashmir banaiga Pakistan“. This will build your character and make you a Pakistani. As Zulfiqar said “don’t be scared to kiss the ground“.
My mother once told me “dhol to sub bajatay hain, galay main dal keh mutt bajana“. we know you have been having fun in Oxford. If you can’t get this let me translate it in your terms —avoid your pics on Facebook!
Think of “our” Muhammad, not the one portrayed by them. Our heroes are Ibn Rushd, Moinuddin Chisti, and those who acquired knowledge. Be inspired by Babur and read his Tuzk e Babri. He used to say “Beware of the flaterers”. Think of what Alexander accomplished. He was a young man like you. And Ali–your grandfather was Ali’s sword.
Whether you hate the Bhutto family or you love them, every Pakistani must read the works of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. We were astonished to discover that the current PPP website does not have the works of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto posted on it. We did discover them on Bhutto.org and read them again. The videos are not there. Here is a “must read” list for you, Sanam and for all Pakistanis. When watch his speeches on YouTube tears swell up in our eyes.

Read what your grandfather is telling you from his grave. Take it to your heart.
What celebration can I hold for you? I give you the celebration of a celebrated memory and a celebrated name. You are the heir to and inheritor of the most ancient civilization. Please make your full contribution to making this ancient civilization the most progressive and the most powerful. By progressive and powerful I do not mean the most dreaded. A dreaded society is not a civilized society. The most progressive and powerful society in the civilized sense, is a society which has recognized its ethos, and come to terms with the past and the present, with religion and science, with modernism and mysticism, with materialism and spirituality; a society free of tension, a society rich in culture. Such a society cannot come with hocus-pocus formulas and with fraud. It has to flow from the depth of a divine search. In other words, a classless society has to emerge but not necessarily a Marxist society. The Marxist society has created its own class structure. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)] p. 15
PPP HAD THREATENED “DAM A DAM MAST QALANDAR“: Nasty foreign varmint are waiting in the wings to take advantage of anything in Pakistan. Watch out for them. The hooliganism, looting, pillage and mayhem last year in Pakistan was unwarranted. PPP over-reacted after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto because they did not want to be accused of servitude. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s prophecy that his “assassination on the gallows” would result “in rivers of blood flowing from Peshawar to Karachi remained unfulfilled”.
You should be speaking against this type of nonsense on every occasion.
WATCH OUT FOR THE FLATTERERS: They are the worst. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s friends had sold him out to the establishment. One became a Prime Minister for a brief period of time. Others were promised freedom. All of them were rejected by the masses and became petty parochial provincial leaders. “Chiraag talay andhera”. Imagine Zulfiqar Ali an international leader and think of these “grand uncles” who are seeking provincial autonomy for their districts. What a waste of human capital!
EMBRACE CRITICISM: Keep those who criticize you near you. Accept criticism. It is s treasure of knowledge. Differentiate critics from opponents. This was a weakness of your ancestors. Learn this developed skill. Use the criticism to improve yourself and your policies.
STAND UP TO THE ARROGANT BULLIES. DON’T BE SCARED TO SPEAK UP FOR THE WEAK AND THE OPPRESSED!
Whenever you see a wrong, in your party, in your family or elsewhere, speak up! Your voice will be heard far and wide! Speak up against the wrongs of the PPP. The Pakistani people are hungry for a voice of reason.
Take up a cause. Help rebuild Pakistan. Help the earthquake victims. Partner up with Harry and William. Raise money for a village and build it yourself. “Don’t be scared to kiss the ground.”
CREATE A NEW IMAGE OF PAKISTAN: You are the new image!
People look up to you. Help us all create a new image of Pakistan. Chaudhry Rehmat Ali lies buried a few miles of you. He created a vision with a brochure. See what you can do. We are all waiting to see your vision and your leadership.
Don’t do anything you would be ashamed of. Don’t let the Crescent and Star down! Keep it flying high! You have to hold the fort, learn all the entrances and exits.
BE POSITIVE-BUILD ALLIANCES WITH YOUR OPPONENTS: Dump the revenge fantasies. Build coalitions with everyone. Accept your opponents as your allies. Learn from Lincoln. He used all his opponents to build a successful Union. As you grow up, think not of the sadness, think of legacy of your great grand-father (Shahnawaz Bhutto) and your grand-father (Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto). Now you must take the torch of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and move forward with it. Get rid of the “advisors” who were rejected by the people of Pakistan.
CONNECT WITH THE MASSES LIKE JINNAH AND ZAB:LEARN THE LANGUAGE AND THE COMMUNICATION: Understand Iqbal and read him often. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto had this uncanny ability to connect with the masses. Other than Jinnah and Liaqat Ali Khan no other Pakistani leader has had this ability. We used to listen to him speak for up-to 6 hours at a time. He would make us laugh and make us cry. He lifted the spirits of a heart-broken and dejected nation in 1971. He would appear on TV and in public places often and without fear. In the beginning he could speak little Urdu, but he learned it quickly. What was more important was the message. The content of his speech was what made fans out of every Pakistani that heard him. Learn the National and Provincial languages and watch the speeches of Zulfiqar Ali. Remember this about your grandfather. It is true. History has born this out:
“You cannot be big unless you are prepared to kiss the ground. You cannot defend the soil unless you know the smell of that soil. I know the smell of our soil. I know the rhythm of our rivers. I know the beat of our drums. The theories, the dogmas and the scripts stand outside the gates of history. The dominant factor is the aspiration of the people and the ability to seek total identification with it. Once the significance of the symphony is grasped, the lines fall into place, the dogmas and theories get legs to move in time to the majesty of that music. This does not mean that I am preaching pragmatism. There is a lot of expediency in pragmatism. I am trying to trace the roots of the problems, the genesis of the challenges, the cause of the struggle.” p. 15. :Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)]
“When the history of this country is written it will be admitted by our people and by the world outside that no individual has rendered so much service to the cause of socialism in Pakistan as I have done.” Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto
ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO WAS POPULAR BECAUSE HE DID NOT PLAGIARIZE–HE BUILT A NEW PHILOSOPHY:–UNIQUE TO PAKISTAN. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was not enamored by existing political polity. He created a local structure and philosophy. He never used “Talking points” from other shining capitals. His version of “musawat e Mohammadi” was named Islamic Socialism. It was new, it was unique and it caught on.
The favourite slogan, the one that caught on during the May 1968 fête in France was “it is forbidden to forbid”. There is nothing to forbid the youth of Europe to reject both communism and capitalism. What will they build in the absence of both systems? Will their concept of building a new structure with a new philosophy mean willful self-destruction? This sounds insane but the youth of Europe is not insane. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)] p. 15 p. 20
OUR UNIQUE PAKISTANI IDENTITY: HE WORE THE COMMON MANS CLOTHES:
ZAB was the first politician who wore the common man’s clothes. Once when he was threatened with an assassination, he threw away the podium, tore open his shirt and asked his people to defend him from the assassins bullet. It gave all of a sense of identity. No one dared to sheet him on his chest. They “stabbed” him from the back in the middle of the night. Who did it? Lady Macbeth says “the Raven himself is hoarse that becons the entrance”. Macbeth answers “he is here in double trust, first as him kinsmen and then his subject…who should again the murderer shut the door, not bear the knife himself”
ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO TALKED ABOUT JUNAGARH AND MANVADAR AND KASHMIR
Your great grandfather was the Prime Minsiter of Junagarh and convinced the Raja to join Pakistan. An article of accession with Junagarh and Manvadar were signed to Pakistan, similar to the one forged on Kashmir by India. Only the one with Manvadar and Juangarh were real. Pakistani maps showed Junagarh and Manvadar as Paksitani territory. Don’t forget those states of Pakistan.
ZAB held an informal referendum in Occupied Kashmir. He asked the Kashmiris to go on strike to show support for Pakistan. They did! Nothing moved in Occupied Kashmir. It showed the world that the Kashmir issue was alive. It gave them hope!
…he formed the OIC…and it gave us all hope.
He inspired an entire nation. His speech at the UN was not about despair. He was indignant, and angry, he repudiated the powerful and then symbolically walked out of the impotent UN because the conspiring powers supported the aggression of India.
…while Bhutto was making an impassioned speech about reversing the army out of Dhaka and not awarding aggression….he asked one of the ambassadors who was smiling…
“the ambassador is smiling…what is so great about him…his hands are covered in blood”
“so what if Dhaka falls…so what if East Pakistan falls…we will build a new Pakistan, a bigger and better Pakistan”…..
Even in defeat Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was defiant! He inspired a generation.
He talked about “picking the pieces.”
…even after 1971 he tried to get the new leader of Bangladesh Khondkar Mushtaque to form a confederation with Pakistan and for the briefest moment Mr. Mushtaque announced a confederation with Pakistan. Unfortunately Khondkar was overthrown and Bangladesh remained Bangladesh. Of course the powers did not want such a powerful nation.
INTERNAL RECONCILIATION. HOW ABOUT REACHING OUT TO THE OTHER ESTRANGED BHUTTOS.
Charity begins at home! Reach out to Fatima Bhutto and Zulfiqar Ali Nhutto Jr. Include them into the legacy of your grandfather. Fatima is a brilliant activist like Sanam. Hold a judicial inquiry into the death of her father and your uncle and publish the Hamood ur Rehman Commission Report.
DO NOT PLAY GOD OR “Le ETAT, CEST MOI” and DO NOT USE THE WORD “disintegration” or Simla, or December 16th.
The Pakistani nation is not looking for a “God” or figure to save them. No one person can do that. Do not bring bad memories to mind. Do not celebrate anything on December 16th. Using the word “disintegration” catches up with the psyche of the nation. Pakistanis hate he word Simla. Don’t mention it. Pakistanis freeze up and get disgusted when Simla is mentioned. Then they get angry. Pledge “Never Again” with them and sing “Jeeway Pakistan.”
GOVERNMENT OF NATIONAL UNITY IS THE NEED OF THE DAY: On building a consensus in Pakistan. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was able to bring together diverse groups like the NAP, JI, JUI, PML and others and got consensus for the 1973 Constitution. This is a learned skill and you can do it. Reach out to the MQM and the PML:
“We badly need to gather our thoughts and clear our minds. We need a political ceasefire without conceding ideological territory. We need a ceasefire to bury dead thoughts and to overcome fatigue. The modus vivendi has to be honourable and above board. Both sides have lost or, should I say, neither side can win. During the ceasefire a combination of existing forces might create a new order or a new equation between existing forces”
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)] p. 15 p. 28
Read world history and our own history to figure things out. Zulfiqar read Nehru’s Glimpses of World History. I did too. It is a good book for 13 year olds. This is what ZAB says.
“in Western estimation it is preferable to be a communist leader of a communist state, than to be a non-communist leader of a non-communist state having friendly relations with communist states. The anomaly does not cease here. It is even more dangerous to be pro-West. One disagreement in defence of a national cause, and out goes that civilian leader by a coup d’etat. He gets replaced by a tin-pot military dictator who would not dare to disagree about anything, including the vital national interests of his country” Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)p. 69
A military junta is the herald of communism. The failure to realize this axiomatic fact is the cause of the confusion in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Military rule turns the people totally and irrevocably against the bemedalled generals and their patrons. Where else can the people turn? If freedom, democracy and the rights of man are to be put on the counter to see whether copper and coffee is to cost ten cents more or ten cents less and bargained away with so little consideration, then freedom is a very cheap commodity and the rights of man are not worth a nickel. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)p. 68
Speaking to the West in Christian terms. Grandfather Bhutto does this eloquently.
“For Christians, the teaching and directives of Christ are more Sacred than those of a Messenger of God. According to the Christians, those teaching and directives are of God Himself. Most of the problems of the Third World would be solved if the Christian West implemented in letter and spirit only one directive of Jesus Christ.
The directive to “Render unto Caesar that which belongs to Caesar and to God that which belongs to God”.
The Third World only want what belongs to it and nothing more. For over two hundred years, the Christian civilization of the West has been mercilessly violating this directive of Jesus Christ. The West has been taking everything belonging to Ceasar and everything belonging to God. The West is not dividing the share equitably. It is not rendering to us what belongs to us. This division relates to the economic, social, racial and political rights of the Third World.” Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 72
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto wanted to read Hitler to fight evil and learn from history. This is imperative.
“how Hitler was able to control his generals and I was not.”
Bhutto detained at the Sihala Rest House by the army in 1977, asked for some of his books on Hitler to be brought to him so that he could figure out how to control his Generals.
LEARN ABOUT THE GREAT GAME:-ONE WHO CAN DISCERN CURZON CAN KUMTUX OUR GEO-POLITICAL IMPORTANCE:Here is a lot of advice from Zuilfiqar Ali Bhutto in his book “Myth of Independence:
“Pakistan was once called the most allied ally of the United States. We are now the most non-allied.“Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (As quoted in The New York Times(6 July 1973)
Learn from the mistakes of the PPP. Benazir Bhutto forgot this:
“If the people wanted my head I would bow without demur. If I had lost the confidence or respect of the people I would not want to live. The tragedy of the drama is that the very opposite is true.” (Letter to his attorney, Yahya Bakhtiar, after his death sentence, as quoted in My Dearest Daughter : A letter from the Death Cell (2007)]
YOU ARE NOT A SINDHI, PUNJABI, BALUCH, KASHMIRI, PATHAN or MUHAJIR: YOU ARE A BHUTTO and A NATIONAL PAKISTANI LEADER: Always remember that. Don’t demean yourself as a provincial leader. You are a national and international leader. Only you can stop yourself. Talk to your fathers friends in foreign lands. Some are still alive. On bringing the diverse society of Pakistan together as well as melting the tin ear of the American war machine. We need to have an anti-clash of civilization and Bilawal is the right person to do this.
OVERHWLEM THEM WITH SUPERIOR STRATEGY: DON’T BRING CHECKER PLAYERS TO A CHESS GAME: Ali Bhutto was well read and know more about the West than Americans and Britishers. He also knew the history of Pakistan and the Subcontinent. His declassified discussion with Kissinger are food for thought. He could characterize Pakistan’s issues in American terms. Unfortunately time did not allow him to write “Glimpses of Pakistani history” that he wanted to.
I could have written a small book entitled “Glimpses of Pakistan’s history”. Time does not permit it. The nation is gripped in her worst crisis, standing in the middle of the road between survival and disintegration. Since the birth of Pakistan, crisis has followed crisis in rapid escalation. Millions of lives were sacrificed to create this country. Pakistan is said to be the dream of Mohammad Iqbal and the creation of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the Quaid-e-Azam. Was anything wrong with the dream or with the one who made the dream come true? Opinions have differed and continue to differ. The next few years will most probably decide the issue, perhaps once and for all, and not without bloodshed. This process is not inevitable but the present policies of the ruling junta are driving this country towards a sad ….Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)] p. 15 p. 37
BUILD PAKISTAN ON THE DYNAMIC CHINESE MODEL NOT THE PENURY STRICKEN, CASTE INFESTED, INDIAN MODEL: ZAB knew this. Mao Ze Dung and Chou En Lai (old spellings) were the heroes of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and of most Pakistanis. Today’s China is fast becoming a super power. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto played a role in that transformation, as acknowledged by Chinese leaders of this generation. He was the one that recognized China. At the time, the only other country that recognized China was Albania. Pakistan opened up China to the US and the world which has led to unprecedented growth in China. Pakistan should use that as a model and not the inefficient stricken Indian model which is a basket case.
Tin-pot dictators have ravaged Asia, Latin America and Africa. In the aftermath, they have done more to promote communism than the works of Marx and Engels, Lenin and Mao. They are the worst tyrants of the post-colonial period. They have destroyed time-honoured institutions and treated their people like animals. They have caused internal divisions and external confusion. The dictator is the one animal who needs to be caged. He betrays his profession and his constitution. He betrays the people and destroys human values. He destroys culture. He binds the youth. He makes the structure collapse. He rules by fluke and freak. He is the scourge and the ogre. He is a leper. Anyone who touches him also becomes a leper. He is the upstart who is devoid of ideals and ideology. Not a single one of them has made a moment’s contribution to history. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007)p. 63
“I am guiding you to seek truth from the facts of the historical conditions of our society and to identify the problems. The correct solutions will come with the correct identification of the problems. “
ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO ON PEACE WITH INDIA
Appeasement does not mean peace. The Treaty of Versailles did not bring peace. The surrender of Khalistan did not bring peace to Pakistan. If India wants peace, she has to make painful concessions. She has to liberate Kashmir, and return Siachin to Pakistan and stop teaching hatred and “Akhand Bharat” nonsense in her schools. The bigotry and hatred taught in Indian schools reflects back on the abuse of Muslims in India itself. Peace with India can only be achieved if the wrongs of 1947 are fixed. Beginning with Kashmir, Junagarh, Manvadar, India has to realize that that land for peace is the only way to make India more powerful. Haggling with Pakistan, exporting terror to Sri Lanka, browbeating Bangladesh, eating up Sikkim, intimidating Bhutan, and creating trouble in Nepal will never get India peace. India has to stop building dams on Pakistani rivers and stop building the Aqua bomb for the coming water wars.
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on Outright pragmatist approach
“Earlier, I have cautioned you against an outright pragmatist approach. Now I am cautioning you against an outright populist approach. Sometimes a populist decision is, in the long run, not beneficial to the masses. Neither pragmatism nor populism are fundamental political and socio-economic doctrines. Nor do I say that you should play it by ear. I have made this melancholy analysis in anguish. My jail surroundings have not influenced my objectivity. I do not want to see the whole world in a death-cell merely because I am in a death cell. I do not say that the High Court has pronounced a death sentence on the world because a law court has pronounced a perverse death sentence on me. I would be the happiest man if the gloomy winter of mankind were to give way to a shaft of sunlight and to coloured flowers. The world is very beautiful. “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”. There is the beauty of the landscape, of the tall mountain, the green plains, the humped deserts. There is the beauty of the flowers and the forests, of the azure oceans and the meandering rivers. There is the splendour of architecture, the magnificence of music, and the sparkle of the dance. Above all, there is the beauty of man and woman, the most perfect creations of God. ” (A letter from the Death Cell (2007)p. 78
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on poetry and his partiality towards Shelly
I am partial to the pantheism of Shelley. There is beauty everywhere. Even in a total war of annihilation it will not be possible to wipe out all of it. Beauty is too beautiful to perish altogether. In this period of twelve months in solitary confinement I have rarely recalled an unpleasant or ugly glimpse of the past. A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 78 – 79
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, and Quaid e Awam said: His most passionate love affair was with the people
Life is a love affair. There is a romance with every beauty of nature. I have no hesitation in saving that my most passionate love affair, my most thrilling romance has been with the people. There is an indissoluble marriage between politics and the people. That is why “Man is a political animal” and the state a political theatre. I have been on this stage of the masters for over twenty tumultuous years. I believe I still have a role to play. I believe the people still want me on this stage, but if I have to bow out, I give you the gift of my feelings. You will fight the fight better than me. Your speeches will be more eloquent than my speeches. Your commitment equally total. There will be more youth and vitality in your struggle. Your deeds ill be more daring. I transmit to you the blessing to the most blessed mission. This is the only present I can give you on your birthdays. A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 79
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto as a humble servant of God
It would be bad politics to try and summarize a situation which is dynamic. Have faith in mankind and its mission. God the Creator is the God of all mankind. God is omnipotent yet. The Creator of this World and the World after this one has imposed on Himself the obligation to be kind and forgiving. No tin-pot dictator of a palm-tree society is capable of imposing any such obligations on himself. On the contrary, he vainly boasts that he is answerable and accountable to nobody. A letter from the Death Cell (2007) pp 79 – 80
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on the world
Africa will rid herself of the maniacs. Africa will live to show that “Black is beautiful”. Africa is ancient but Asia is ageless. Her nimble and graceful beauty has adorned civilization from the birth of mankind. Latin America has become the castanet of an international culture that links Andalusia to Arabia and the Caribbean. What beauty there is in the tap of her flamenco! Europe is glamorous and adorable, so seductive that she is still beautiful after a number of face lifts. America has been watergated. In that flow of stagnant waters you can behold beauty in its reflection. A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 80
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto diffrentiates ideology from religion
Religion is a link between God and man and man and man. Political ideology is a link between man and man. For this reason the great religions of the world like Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the last of all religions, have outlived and outlasted political ideologies. If an unlearned adventurer in his quest for political power and perpetuation brings religion down from its celestial plane to a mundane level by converting it into a narrow political ideology, the adventurer endangers the link between God and man and man and man. A letter from the Death Cell (2007)
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in pain in his jail cell
What I write is full of infirmities. I have been in solitary confinement for twelve months and in a death cell for three months, deprived of all facilities. I have written much of this by resting the paper on my thigh in unbearable heat. I have no reference material or library, I have rarely seen the blue sky. The quotations are from the few books I was permitted to read and from the journals and newspapers you and your mother bring once a week during your visits to my suffocating cell. I am not making excuses for my deficiencies but it is very difficult to rely on a fading memory in such physical and mental conditions. A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 80
I am fifty years old and you are exactly half my age. By the time you reach my age, you must accomplish twice as much as I have achieved for the people.
Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto message of the morrow to you
“Your grand-father taught me the politics of pride, your grandmother taught me the politics of poverty. I am beholden to both for the fine synthesis. To you, my darling daughter, I give only one message. It is the message of the morrow, the message of history. Believe only in the people, work only for their emancipation and equality. The paradise of God lies under the feet of your mother. The paradise of politics lies under the feet of the people. “My Dearest Daughter : A letter from the Death Cell(2007)] Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto A letter from the Death Cell (2007) p. 14
We love Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Your mother, we had problems with. Criticism of Benazir Bhutto In the aftermath of her death we expected you to say something. The speech that Bilawal Bhutto should have given. The words that Zardari should have shouted. The thoughts that Fahim should have communicated. Even your father says there is a foreign hand in the death of your mother. The CIA Connection…….The Benzair Bhutto Assissination was pre planned, the Zia model with a twist. The continued CIA involvement in Pakistan. The Great Game continues. When the Elephants dance the grass gets stamped upon…Pakistanis suffer. The purpose of this assignation is to destabilize Pakistan and find a reason to secure the Nukes We wrote some things about Benazir before har tragic death. Please excuse us. Criticism of Benazir Bhutto. Pre-Assassination. We maintain that the same forcesthat killed Liaqat Ali Khan killed Benazir Bhutto. Who killed Liaqat Ali Khan? The Media in the West is not as free as it used to be. Dennis Kuchnich says today’s media reminds him of USSR days, the days of Izvestia and Pravda. On deconstructing the wrong paradigm of the USA media. We have to be contantly on our guard. There are many employees of the enemies of Pakistan. Here is our piece in Rebutting Cohen. Every time a leaf falls, someone will start painting the doomsday nonsense. Pakistanis are immune to another prophecy of doom . The media and the Neoconservatives have a way with words. They will keep asking for more. Pakistanis want to hear “Thank You” from the ingrate Americans. Nothing is good enough! Even Ayub Khan realized that Pakistanis to USA: We want “Friends Not Masters”. Of course Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto wrote “The Myth of Independence“. Read it and write a preface and an epilogue to that great book of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Update the book. It is still valid. We want to salute the armed forces for the sacrifice of hundreds of soldiers who died. We need to tell them that they should learn to Say Thank You. The Pakistan US Relations should be normal not transactional We have to be on guard against the enemies. Response to Congressman Hoyer on Pakistan. The US aid to Pakistan is peanuts, and most of it stays in the USA. We have to explain to the people of America the facts on On inadequate US Aid. Pakistanis are sick and tired of the CIA trained presons who turned against them. Where is Osama Bin Laden. We have to defend Pakistani assetts. Where are the Pakistani nukes? N one know and no one will ever know.
Whatever the formula, it cannot be evolved on the battlefield of the old or new cold wars. The new international order has to emerge through the demands of a Third World summit conference. The answer to the North-South conflict, which is more serious than the East-West conflict, has to be found honestly and with unimpeachable integrity. Genuine disarmament will not come on its own or by platitudes at special sessions of the United Nations on disarmament, although, I was among the first to propose such a conference eighteen years ago.
