Former Railway Minister and head of his own Awami Muslim League Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has a knack for words. He is very popular on the Talk Show circuit and makes announcements that are cogent and funny.
His prescient prediction that President Pervez Musharraf would wage a guerrilla warfare against Mr. Sharif has now come true. Mr. Rashid said that Mr. Mushsaraf has a treasure chest of information and he would continue to reveal the secrets periodically.
Former Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif is obsessed with the wrong that was done to him by a military dictator. For the past several year, he and his acolytes have been spewing venom against their protagonists. After Musharraf’s departure the increased the decibel level.
Pervez Musharraf waited for a few months, ’till his two years were over. He has now come back with a vengeance and is taking pot shots at Nawaz Sharif every week.
While Mr. Nawaz Sharif is apparently constrained by his promise to abstain from politics for a decade, Mr. Musharraf no longer is under any compunction to withhold his emotions. Hence his current cannon shot “Bin Laden funded Nawaz for elections”. This has been reported by various news organizations but Musharraf has sanctified and made it believable.
LAHORE: Former president Pervez Musharraf has claimed that al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden funded Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif for taking part in the 2008 elections, a private TV channel reported on Friday. Addressing the All-Pakistan Muslim League convention in Toronto, he said that Chaudhry Shujaat and Pervaiz Elahi were giving statements “in frustration”, adding that Richard Holbrooke’s statement against him proves that he never took orders from the US. Musharraf said that a group of people had again raised slogans against him in Toronto, adding that if he was not afraid of the country’s law, he would have asked his party workers to kick out the demonstrators. Musharraf kept silent on the question regarding Dr Imran Farooq joining the All-Pakistan Muslim League, the channel reported. daily times monitor
The Sahrif’s need to make a risk vs. reward evaluation about their future. They can continue to delve in the politics of hate for real and perceived wrongs, or they can move on. If Mr. Sharif wants his political party and political scion to win elections, he needs to make a political decision and come to terms with his nemesis.
Ramla Ijaz adds:
Due to compromising attitude of PML-N’s leadership and their mild will to fight against the menace of terrorism the members of law enforcement agencies are completely demoralized. That is one of the reasons that the investigations against terrorists are not carried out in a proper manner and proof against arrested terrorists usually is not available. Due to the incapability of the Punjab Government terrible terrorist attacks took place in the province including suicide attack on Police Training School Bedian Road, blast in Moon Market Lahore, car bomb blast in the Rescue 15 building, car bomb blast in F.I.A building, suicide attack on Munawan Police Training Center, Model Town link road bomb blast, suicide attack on Jamia Naemia, terrorist attack on Ahmedi’s worship places, blasts in Imam Bargahs including Karbla Gammay Shah and suicide bomb blasts in the sacred shrine of Hazrat Data Gunj Buksh along with many others. After these attacks PML-N has morally lost its right of government in Punjab.
Further, it was Shahbaz Sharif, who instead of showing courage and political and moral will to fight against the enemies of Pakistan, in his speech in Jamia Naemia Lahore, begged for mercy from the terrorists. He, in a very disgraceful manner, requested them not to attack Punjab as they are likeminded and standing on the same side. This statement of Shahbaz Sharif reflects his mindset ! firstname.lastname@example.org
