Kashmir story short

Anyone who blames India please look inside Pakistan first. Our police and judges are the worst. Our economy is finished. And our future is dark. Let us fix Pakistan before we raise our fingers on others

جو بھی ہندوستان پر الزام لگاتا ہے اسے پہلے پاکستان کے اندر نظر ڈالیں۔ ہماری پولیس اور جج بدترین ہیں۔ ہماری معیشت ختم ہوچکی ہے۔ اور ہمارا مستقبل تاریک ہے۔ ہم دوسروں پر انگلیاں اٹھانے سے پہلے پاکستان کو ٹھیک کریں۔

Kashmir has only ONE solution. An economically stronger, safer and globally respected Pakistan. Let’s work for it. #CrystalHeartKazmi

کشمیر کے پاس صرف ایک ہی حل ہے۔ معاشی طور پر ایک مضبوط ، محفوظ اور عالمی سطح پر قابل احترام پاکستان۔ آئیے اس کے لئے کام کریں۔

*The unavoidable truth Pakistanis and poor Muslim countries face*

CrystalHeart Kazmi, Writer and Analyst

It is a sad truth that poor nations are abused in the world. Even poor Christian countries are abused and left in South America, Africa and other places. we Muslims are no exception. So please my dear brothers and sisters, understand this reality. Money makes the world go round. We cannot blame the world for all our problems. We have to be brave to accept our weaknesses. Today Muslims and others who live in the West are very happy. They don’t want to go back to their native lands. Except as tourists. Despite difference in religion they are happy. Because their needs are met. Law and order, education, healthcare, jobs, equal treatment of all and a caring government.

We lack all of these.

The West achieved prosperity through internal revolutions. When their people fought for change. We are willing to fight the whole world. Blame everyone. But not willing to change our own government. Or ourselves.

We need a low cost government. We need to decrease costs in all institutions. Now. Today. We need an honest Police and judiciary run by retired army officers. We need low taxes so business and jobs can grow. We need to attract tourism. And create policies that encourage tourism. Like the Middle East and Far East Muslim nations do. Liberal and welcoming to tourists. Because tourism alone can give Pakistan $100 billion a year. However, it will only come when my above suggestions are implemented.

Please let’s stop dreaming. Charity begins at home. A stronger Pakistan is needed. But I see a weaker Pakistan. Because of you. The people of Pakistan. You are not asking for change. Unless you raise your voice. Nothing will happen. Tomorrow Azad Kashmir will be lost. Today is a time to think.

Undo mistakes of 70 years. It’s not easy. And don’t expect Army or Imran Khan to do everything. You must play your part. Or happily accept slavery and destruction as your fate.

Rise. Time is nothing your friend anymore.

Raise your voice for a new Pakistan with prudent government, low taxes, increased tourism and retired army officers based police.

On Imran Khan

Money is not everything. Just think. Who is respected today, and who is insulted? Imran Khan is respected but Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari or their followers have no respect. Why? These two robbers have many times more money than Imran Khan. But Imran is respected, they are not. Why isn’t their money respected? Because money is not respectable. We have it or not, that’s it. Respect is difficult to gain, easy to lose. Money is the easiest way to lose respect. If you got it the wrong way. Because sooner or later people realise that you have nothing worthy of respect. Your money is of no value. Your values, character and goodness is respected.

I am not a blind supporter of Imran Khan. But I am not a liar. He is helpless for Kashmir. Because India and global superpowers have cornered him and our army. We cannot fight without serious consequences. We are already crippled as an economy. Thanks to Zardaris and Sharifs. Imran and Army are paying the price of last 30 years of democracy. They are getting blamed.

As far as Kashmir is concerned. The real culprits are Zardari and Sharif. But our people do not understand. They are not at fault. When India is murdering Kashmiri Muslims like cabbage and carrots. It is obvious that our people will get angry and upset. Who will they go to for a solution? Except Pakistan Army or the Government? Both are defused by our enemies due to a bad economy. And bad economy is due to democracy. Corrupt democracy that we faced from Bhuttos, Zardaris and Sharifs.

Today we have two ugly paths. Releasing mujahideen to fight Indians, for which we will face the wrath of the world. Or we do nothing and die out of shame. Which is the real story. I can only hope and pray that our Army and Government find some way to get out of this mess. It will not be easy. But impossible is nothing. There are 250 million people looking for a way. Something should happen. Something will happen.

But one thing is clear. The money looted by Zardari and Nawaz will insult them and their families way beyond their bones turn to dust in their graves

*Wish list for a new Pakistan 🇵🇰* CrystalHeart Kazmi

Quit false pride and arrogance

We aren’t the saviors of Muslim Ummah let alone ourselves!

Imran Khan isn’t Imam Mehdi or something like that

Our army is good but we’re over expecting from it

All our neighbors aren’t the worst, maybe we’re rubbing them the wrong way. Maybe we’re rubbing everyone the wrong way!

Islam is a religion. So are Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism etc etc. We’re nobody to claim we are right and all else are wrong. That includes Ahmedis too

We are a dirty people. Spit on the roads. Don’t give way to women, children or elderly. Misbehave with the weak including women. We are an angry nation. Everyone is upset for some reason. We are so often cheaters in our dealings and yet we proudly proclaim the Islamic tag

We are also beggars at a state an individual level. But our pride is beyond a reality check

The whole world is not planning to kill us. Maybe we’re hoping they are. So we can feel ‘important’

Last but not the least. We do have immense potential. The day we give up these thoughts and habits. I am not your enemy, I’m a friend of Pakistan. I want us to accept the bitter truth around us and change it with our intentions and actions

If not now then when?

Tulsi may not be eloquent but she sure speaks her heart out. She’s honest. And that’s obvious to all. I am not an American. I carry a Pakistani passport. Yet I am an American in thought and ideals. A misfit amongst my own for most of my life because I’m like you guys. Even though you take pride in being conservatives or liberals yet strange as it may seem and many of you here spewing polite or vulgar hate or jabs at each other.
Yet.
Please take it from me as a friend and well wisher for America and all Americans. You are all very similar even in your difference. You have big hearts. Pride in your self but not arrogance. Yes you are very simple people. You find our circularly straight world a challenge to grapple with given your own financial or egalitarian interests. And I don’t blame you for neither do we. I grew up in Karachi the once New York of Pakistan back in the 60s and 70s Jacky Kennedy going round in top down cars. Bars, pubs, cabarets were aplenty. Ours was a fine British culture not as egalitarian as yours but certainly not radical islamic. Afghanistan’s and Iran were equally liberal. Then came a US sponsored change in these parts of the world Afghanistan Taliban many aren’t too old to not know what happened. Today we are lost. Our people wear western clothes and speak like you study in your unis even immigrate and spew hate on Americans all the same. Makes no sense. Yet it does. Americans are Gods gift to the world. Don’t get flamboyant though!
2. If I was born in America. I too would run for office. But my policy line would be recolonising the world and freeing them of oppressive regimes. My own Pakistan or neighbouring India both are in a despicable state due corrupt governance and robbers as democratic leaders both full of religious extremism and a false sense of superiority. The story’s the same 80% of our world. South America. Africa. Eastern Europe. Philippines. And so on. I believe in an America that controls the world directly. Not indirectly as of decades. That needs to change. America needs to own the world rightfully for the world is a part of America and not vice versa. Every race color faith nation is assimilated in America. Very very happily.

LAST CHANCE FOR PAKISTAN

Published by NewsBlaze Australia

The status quo

Never in the HISTORY of Pakistan have the people of Pakistan felt as disillusioned, let down and cheated as they do today, by all institutions of Pakistan, whichever face, race, ethnicity, even the ruling PTI supporters are disgruntled. Hopelessness is in the air and there is no savior in sight. Every passing day brings newer and higher taxes, increasing prices, closing businesses, decreasing income, newer and more innovative global shame, and the abject helplessness in helping those all Pakistani civil, religious and military leaders always called the aorta of Pakistan: Kashmir.

The tip of the iceberg

Take a look at Twitter, an open letter to our PM Imran Khan by a Christian Indian or the barrage of negative comments by Indian’s on Imran Khan’s twitter account. Fine India is Enemy Numero Uno how does one justify the absolute rejection of Pakistan’s call for help by the world community in general including Muslim countries? The UNSC resolution was nothing short of a joke that our politicians pounced on as a “victory” for it neither restored Article 370 in Kashmir nor improved Pakistan’s standing anywhere in practical terms, all our leaders have are theories, while the people day by day are getting more and more angry and frustrated at an apparent failure of governance at all possible levels, internal or external.

Two neighbors, both got freedom at the same time, India’s economy is 9 times bigger than Pakistan’s. This is where the discussion should start. The world, you and I inclusive, respect the rich and despise the poor. The term “bhikari” (beggar) on google returns images of Imran Khan. Now, the fact of the matter is that Imran is a fairly well-off and self-respecting man but he stooped to the lowest possible level to save his dying under debt nation by going to all he could.

But Imran couldn’t possibly solve even 1% of Pakistan’s problems, let alone Kashmir!

Why so? Quite simply, he came in too late, through an electoral process that literally gets the SCUM of the land and shovels them to the corridors of power. He had no choice but to wheel and deal his way. That’s just ONE weakness, he inherited the baggage of goof ups mostly under ‘democratic’ thieves of Pakistan (whom he’s ungainfully locked up for now, Nawaz and Zardari) and some from military leaders as well.

The problem was quite simple, politicians belonged to feudal or technocrat families with a clear intent to loot as much as they could in the shortest possible time. The only balancing act was the powerful Army which would come here and there to fix things up, last formal attempt with a lot of unmet promises was by Gen Pervez Musharaff in October 1999. His colorful life and colorless blunders scared the hell out of his successors in tying the military power knot again and hence became an era of “selection” which has again, at the risk of repetition, gave an “ungainful” candidate with a moronic team which is more like a circus if anything at all, sans entertainment worth your money.

Politicians are bad in Pakistan, no doubt, but who propped them up? Bhutto grew up in Ayub Khan’s lap (who also hurled abuses at the founder’s sister Fatima Jinnah), Gen Zia groomed the witless clueless brainless idiot Nawaz and the thug Altaf Hussain to corridors of power, yes the 1987 (post Zia death) to 1999 period can be attributed to “foreign efforts” of both Bhutto and Nawaz, later in 2007 legend and rumor has it Gen Kyani, the man Musharaf entrusted with power, played the power game first with Zardari and then Nawaz, hurling Pakistan into a finale of loot the likes of which an impoverished 98% of 250 million people as I outlined in GadhaParty could never EVER have imagined. Kyani as I am told by those who know what the ordinary people know not, was influential in the killer final terms of Zardari and Nawaz that have broken the economic back of Pakistan. Which is why the people are angry on one side, and India is stronger in disputed J&K/IOK on the other.

Hell is what Imran Khan inherited!

And a hostile neighbor which pounced at the opportunity of a weak Pakistan by legitimizing it’s abuse over the disputed Kashmir territory.

And the “wrong” faith for world leaders and opinion makers: Islam

Now bad luck or whatever, since Kashmiris are Muslims and no one in power today of any faith (including Muslims!) likes Muslims their fate was sealed from the very inception, just like Palestinians or Rohingyas. Had these three been Christians or Jewish or Hindus all hell would have broken loose, wars would have been fought and they’d have got “homelands” by now. But nay, “Muslims are troublemakers, Sharia induced and terrorists” say the KKK, right wingers every where on a killing spree in mosques or wherever they find this “diseased version of humanity” – an ethnic cleansing similar to what Hitler did to Jews as is being done to Muslims today, overtly in Kashmir and covertly elsewhere. Imran and Pakistan’s Kashmir cause was and is a non starter in this back drop.

The GCC Arab nations are wiser, they have walked the line of “tolerance” atleast overtly and won over just about every one in the comity of nations Pakistan has lost.

Ironically, with more Muslims living in India then Pakistan one would have assumed a positive foreign policy, similar language and culture, but nay for decades we hated them (and vice versa) while they built stronger and stronger ties with our “Muslim brethren” to the point that India boasts their support! Neighboring Iran and Afghanistan, both predominantly Muslim nations vow allegiance to India anyday and everyday. Afghanistan we counted on but like East Pakistan couldn’t retain as a friend. May I mention here that while many Pakistanis speak of Indian Army raping Muslim Kashmiri women and killing, torturing and abusing their men that back in 71 it was our Army engaged in the same with fellow Muslim East Pakistanis to the extent that Indians were called for help by the Bengalis and our troops made a huge demoralizing surrender.

History has an uncanny way of repeating itself, it seems Pakistan and Pakistanis have learnt nothing if anything at all from their 7 decades of existence besides the familiar slogans of “Long Live Imran Khan” and “Long Live Pak Army and ISI” there is nothing concrete or tangible to talk about except recognizing failure after failure.

We went wrong everywhere, internally and externally, time to speak, write and DO the truthful of things that lead to improvement.

Amateurism is how Imran tackled inherited hell

Fine, things were bad, very bad, internally. What did King Khan do? Raised taxes to make IMF happy which in the same vein broke the back of an impoverished people AND killed whatever hope there was of reviving the economy, next he went on all possible tangents that backfired from austerity drives to loud statements and war of words with Indian Premier whom he later tried to appease and “wished he win so Kashmir is resolved” and the EXACT OPPOSITE happened! Wisdom and Imran Khan don’t go together, top it off with an incompetent team key members often selected by lenders and you have a recipe for disaster. Sealing the fate of Pakistan.

So the way out?

Indian Kashmir is not even remotely the key problem Pakistan faces, as they say in the airlines “place your oxygen mask over your face before you help others” is precisely what our situation is with Indian Kashmiris. We need to stay alive before we can let another soul to life!

Long ago, Stephen Covey who published the bestseller “7 habits of highly effective people” (which applies to nations too) spoke of “circle of concern” and “circle of influence”, the former referring to people who spend their time worrying about what they cannot change and the latter to those who work on areas that bring direct improvement in their lives. The same holds true for nations. Pakistan has been blabbering about issues it has NO control over and doing little on those it should to change the status quo. And Mr Khan now the roving Ambassador of Kashmir is doing the opposite. His lack of understanding of key issues facing Pakistan and their antidotes is only complicating and compounding our problems.

Economy and Justice

The magic words for Pakistan. But the exact opposite is happening since the s/election of the harbinger of change, Imran Khan! Economy is literally dying bending over backwards for the sins of previous “democracies” and justice what to speak of it, suffice to say a pipe dream for most Pakistanis. We have the most corrupt and horrible legal and police systems in the world. Imran has done little to change that. Because he doesn’t even understand WHY it is so and WHAT will change it for the better! Because of his incompetence today we suffer a terrible legal and justice system, a worse economy and a shameful face in the world.

The only people who can bring justice to Pakistan as I wrote in ChangePakistan is the Army, I wrote it back in 2007! 12 years, toiled and met politicians, Army Generals and you name Who is Who of Pakistan. Everyone acknowledged and appreciated my efforts but DID NOTHING tangible to make it happen.

Second, the economy, we need to incentivize people to invest in Pakistan and create jobs, that can only be done by reducing taxes to bare minimum of 10% that too VAT (value added) and no income taxes so people invest! create jobs and revive our dying economy.

We need to, in the same breath reduce expenses by cutting out all government ministries and departments and merging them as CALL CENTRES and APPs in NADRA which should also focus on tax collection using retired army officers and personnel giving exemplary punishment to thieves of the 10% low taxes. Also the Army need to cut down all admin expenses using IT and focus on combat mode needs only. Thus our reduced expenses will be met by a lower tax regime.

This cannot be done without negotiating an “interest and principal” break from IMF and other lenders for atleast 2-5 years so the economy comes back on track.

Extremism is still very much a part of Pakistan and it’s constitution, we need to go secular, allow nightclubs and bars openly to attract tourism, if the Middle East with hot arid deserts can get 200 billion dollars a year from tourism why can’t we?

Foreign relations need to be positive and low key, we need to take a passive then aggressive tone with India and extend a hand of real friendship to them like the rest of our Muslim brothers and sisters, in the interest of our survival and that of 300 million Muslims living in India besides the moderates that are aplenty. Pakistan must not kindle the fire but try its best to douse it. For decades we watched their movies and they loved our dramas, our dressing, jokes, language are far more similar than others, I see every reason to envision an EU like alliance between India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

As for Kashmir we should support the Kashmiri people by funding their Government in exile in the US, France, UK, China, Russia, Singapore, Brussels and Australia independently and where not as extension of Pakistan Missions abroad. We should ask for an INDEPENDENT KASHMIR free of Pakistani or Indian influence with NATO and UN troops to protect them. This is the RIGHT THING to do, it’s ethical and it’s correct. We should woo Kashmiris living outside India in US, UK, EU etc including Muslims, Christians and Hindus in it. This alone will save the subcontinent from the fire of extremism RSS and Modi are stoking.

So in short, life is all about survival of the fittest. India is not the fittest, but is far more fit then we are. Remember that, and chalk out your first goal: survival.

Mediation on India & Pakistan to avoid a Nuclear War

Your Excellency, Mr Narendra Modi
Prime Minister of India
New Delhi, India
CC PM Imran Khan, Islamabad, Pakistan

Offer of mediation on Indo-Pak-Kashmir conflict by a well-meaning Pakistani, self-proclaimed PEACE MINISTER OF PAKISTAN

Your Excellency, Mr Modi,

Salam / Namaste,

Before anyone hits the nuclear button in India or Pakistan, I do hope and pray my words are read and taken into account. This is a love story of two brothers, India & Pakistan gone VERY VERY wrong and I believe can be corrected quickly, if I am given a chance to mediate between the two. What we need is KodeOfKonduct enforced in both India & Pakistan via our capable armies and intel agencies for our common good.

I write to you as nothing really seems to be working between Pakistan and India except increasing tensions with the Kashmiris paying for the sins of both.

Sir, in the comity of world leaders you occupy a special space, one of respect all over the world, you have worked hard for it. Your second term is a proof of your popularity at home as well.

Now, I understand you must be a very busy man so I’ll get straight to the point, if you see the attached pictures, they are of my late mother and father with Indira Gandhi in the early 80s at the Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi, while I’ve never stepped foot in India, my parents were born there and migrated like millions did from both sides on which Salman Khan recently did an epic movie called “Bharat” – the story is old and known to many, what is NOT known to many are the following facts:

1                     I am the self-proclaimed Pakistani “Minister of Peace” founder of GadhaParty.com and WomenAreVotes.com that will inspire any in the poor nations of the world and women alike one day

2                     Indians and Pakistanis abroad are often the best of friends and immediately get along, similar language and culture, I have seen Indians and Pakistanis supporting each other even breaking the law to do so in EU and elsewhere! Such bonding is impossible to imagine in today’s “war fever” however, Sir, I have seen it with my own eyes and can share exact details and locations if required

3                     India is home to almost as many Muslims as reside in Pakistan, not all of them are unhappy with India, you must be doing some things right to keep them happy!

4                     The Muslims of India are mostly converts from Hinduism, it is the same story of other religions throughout history, as a Muslim I apologize to every Indian and yourself for the forced conversion and high handedness of the Muslims who conquered India a thousand years back, I also apologize for the terrible self-centered governance of the “Moguls” who built more tombs and had more mistresses than welfare of the people, in my opinion. I personally believe the British did us all a HUGE favor by freeing them from their oppression, teaching us table manners, English and if I may say “humanity” for that is what lacked in the region before the British came here, again it is my opinion and you are free to disagree Sir

5                     My late father was an ICS Officer from the 1930s and left in the late 50s to Pakistan, he lamented this division as in his words the British when dividing India made a prophecy that rings true till this day that “the people of India (and Pakistan) are excellent subordinates but inconsiderate leaders” –now please do not take it personally, neither yourself nor Imran Khan on our side are inconsiderate leaders, but if you see our history in general (both India and Pakistan post partition), our civil services and especially our police, they have been far from fair. The people rotting away in jails in India or Pakistan are mostly innocent and sadly those who SHOULD be in jail are roaming scot free! I am sure, to a certain extent you might agree with me

6                     Now while democracy thrived and feudalism died in India post partition Pakistan had a different story, you may find it hard to believe Sir but I am a fan of all militaries all over the world, I have dear friends in Pakistan Army and know some of the Indian ones via Facebook, my contention has always been that both Indian and Pakistani governments do NOT have roots in Hinduism or Islam, rather the laid out charted out manuals left by the British, and thank God for that! Indian Army has MANY loyal Muslim soldiers ready to kill their enemies at the command of their commanders and the EXACT same situation exists in Pakistan where Hindu soldiers are loyal to Pakistan! And are given fair and equal treatment on both sides. Hence it is evident that religion as a basis of differentiation has a weak correlation between India and Pakistan. After all, please do tell me Sir WHY do almost ALL Muslim nations barring a few support India than Pakistan? Does it not tell you that the terms India and Pakistan have are NOT based on religion? For were that so the entire Muslim “Ummah” would be untied against India today but we see the opposite! It is not a diplomatic “win” of India simply the broadmindedness of all parties concerned

7                     And now, you may not believe me, but I find Pakistani Army extremely rational, logical and pro peace. I do not think the Indian Army is very different either. So where is the problem?

8                     Sir, again, in my opinion, you are perhaps unknowingly kindling a fire that can one day burn your own home as it did ours. To appease the Amercians back in the 70s we nourished Taliban, ultimately our Army had to fight and kills them as we’d created a Frankenstein! Now draw parallels with India of today, you, perhaps inadvertently, gave rise to Hindu Nationalism in a country (India) which was erstwhile FAR MORE SECULAR than Pakistan! In doing so, and the recent highly questionable moves in Kashmir that the Indian Courts are also challenging, besides the world community to some extent, you are turning the tide EXACTLY like WE in Pakistan did back in the 80s! We suffered 20 years to get rid of that extreme fanatic mindset! As a BROTHER and a FRIEND I tell you Sir India will be hurt much more than Pakistan was because of Taliban. Sir you ARE a secular nation, such extreme fundamentalists asking people to chant “Jai Shri Ram” (or kill them otherwise), cutting tongues of Muslims, raping young or old Muslim girls is NOT the Indian fabric is India or the WHOLE WORLD knows it Sir!

9                     My dream and YOUR dream and OUR dream should be a SECULAR Indo Pak where like EU we can all have open borders where we travel and work freely! Increase tourism and be a combined global military and economic force, include Nepal, Afghanistan and Bangladesh to the belt too! And use our armies and elite intelligence agencies on BOTH sides to work TOGETHER against crime

10                 If you have concerns with Pakistan, allow me to help play a mediator, consider me 50% Indian and 50% Pakistani, after all my parents belonged to Allahabad and Bhopal! And still have a lot of family there but since I do not feel ‘welcome’ in India I’ve traveled the WHOLE world, ate and drank with Indians abroad but have the unmet dream of driving from Lahore to Kerala, and the way things are even if I did I’ll perhaps never make it in one piece J Not only that I am a disciple and friend of YOUR friend Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of the Art of Living, go ahead and call him, ask him “who is this Imran Owais Kazmi / CrystalHeart” and he and his team, Rugmani, Prabharker in India, Aniket in New York, Poonam in LA will all apprise you who I am and what I stand for

11                 Lastly PLEASE you and I and 1.6 billion people in India and Pakistan speak a similar language or variations, have a very similar culture and have COEXISTED for THOUSANDS of years happily (in the balance) – please do NOT make the mistake our Muslim ancestors did today is my humble brotherly and friendly advice to you sir

12                 We have more common friends than enemies Modi Saheb, let us build on those bonds! My thoughts on Kashmir are simple, let them be sir, we should give up ours, you give up yours and let them decide their fate like an independent self-respecting people, again you may not agree, but it is my humble suggestion and as I understand also the alma mater of UN resolutions and agreements between India and Pakistan todate – in ANY CASE if India and Pakistan reach LASTING PEACE and open their borders WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL IT MAKE! We will all be able to go anywhere we like from Afghanistan to Bengal via Kashmir, Nepal and India (so I dream!) – however, I would love to hear your views too and see where we can have a combined meeting of minds (you and the Pakistanis)

13                 Sir let us please work towards PEACE than PIECES of each other – consider me the catalyst, the guy who know Imran Khan and our fine people as well as yours, through yourself, allow this “Minister of Peace” an audience, let’s have a candid talk and end on the Beatle’s line of “let’s make love not war” – I am pretty sure we will, though not literally J

14                 Both sides are full of anger, both sides are nuclear capable, I pray to Allah or Bhagwan, whoever you believe in to give sense to leaders of both nations, I am at the service of both countries as an AMBASSADOR / MINISTER OF PEACE should you allow me the honor and pleasure – PLEASE DO NOT LET THE WORLD DIVIDE US BROTHERS IN ARMS, one winning is not another losing, it is BOTH losing! Think about it sir!

I am reachable on +971 50 5849562 should anyone from your team wish to setup a call or an appointment with yourself, let us turn these testing times to an opportunity for creating peace for a lifetime!

Last chance for Pakistan

The status quo

Never in the HISTORY of Pakistan have the people of Pakistan felt as disillusioned, let down and cheated as they do today, by all institutions of Pakistan, whichever face, race, ethnicity, even the ruling PTI supporters are disgruntled. Hopelessness is in the air and there is no savior in sight. Every passing day brings newer and higher taxes, increasing prices, closing businesses, decreasing income, newer and more innovative global shame, and the abject helplessness in helping those all Pakistani civil, religious and military leaders always called the aorta of Pakistan: Kashmir.

Two neighbors, both got freedom at the same time, India’s economy is 9 times bigger than Pakistan’s. This is where the discussion should start. The world, you and I inclusive, respect the rich and despise the poor. The term “bhikari” (beggar) on google returns images of Imran Khan. Now, the fact of the matter is that Imran is a fairly well-off and self-respecting man but he stooped to the lowest possible level to save his dying under debt nation by going to all he could.

But Imran couldn’t possibly solve even 1% of Pakistan’s problems, let alone Kashmir!

Why so? Quite simply, he came in too late, through an electoral process that literally gets the SCUM of the land and shovels them to the corridors of power. He had no choice but to wheel and deal his way. That’s just ONE weakness, he inherited the baggage of goof ups mostly under ‘democratic’ thieves of Pakistan (whom he’s ungainfully locked up for now, Nawaz and Zardari) and some from military leaders as well.

The problem was quite simple, politicians belonged to feudal or technocrat families with a clear intent to loot as much as they could in the shortest possible time. The only balancing act was the powerful Army which would come here and there to fix things up, last formal attempt with a lot of unmet promises was by Gen Pervez Musharaff in October 1999. His colorful life and colorless blunders scared the hell out of his successors in tying the military power knot again and hence became an era of “selection” which has again, at the risk of repetition, gave an “ungainful” candidate with a moronic team which is more like a circus if anything at all, sans entertainment worth your money.

Politicians are bad in Pakistan, no doubt, but who propped them up? Bhutto grew up in Ayub Khan’s lap (who also hurled abuses at the founder’s sister Fatima Jinnah), Gen Zia groomed the witless clueless brainless idiot Nawaz and the thug Altaf Hussain to corridors of power, yes the 1987 (post Zia death) to 1999 period can be attributed to “foreign efforts” of both Bhutto and Nawaz, later in 2007 legend and rumor has it Gen Kyani, the man Musharaf entrusted with power, played the power game first with Zardari and then Nawaz, hurling Pakistan into a finale of loot the likes of which an impoverished 98% of 250 million people as I outlined in GadhaParty could never EVER have imagined. Kyani as I am told by those who know what the ordinary people know not, was influential in the killer final terms of Zardari and Nawaz that have broken the economic back of Pakistan. Which is why the people are angry on one side, and India is stronger in disputed J&K/IOK on the other.

Hell is what Imran Khan inherited!

And a hostile neighbor which pounced at the opportunity of a weak Pakistan by legitimizing it’s abuse over the disputed Kashmir territory.

And the “wrong” faith for world leaders and opinion makers: Islam

Now bad luck or whatever, since Kashmiris are Muslims and no one in power today of any faith (including Muslims!) likes Muslims their fate was sealed from the very inception, just like Palestinians or Rohingyas. Had these three been Christians or Jewish or Hindus all hell would have broken loose, wars would have been fought and they’d have got “homelands” by now. But nay, “Muslims are troublemakers, Sharia induced and terrorists” say the KKK, right wingers every where on a killing spree in mosques or wherever they find this “diseased version of humanity” – an ethnic cleansing similar to what Hitler did to Jews as is being done to Muslims today, overtly in Kashmir and covertly elsewhere. Imran and Pakistan’s Kashmir cause was and is a non starter in this back drop.

The GCC Arab nations are wiser, they have walked the line of “tolerance” atleast overtly and won over just about every one in the comity of nations Pakistan has lost.

Ironically, with more Muslims living in India then Pakistan one would have assumed a positive foreign policy, similar language and culture, but nay for decades we hated them (and vice versa) while they built stronger and stronger ties with our “Muslim brethren” to the point that India boasts their support! Neighboring Iran and Afghanistan, both predominantly Muslim nations vow allegiance to India anyday and everyday. Afghanistan we counted on but like East Pakistan couldn’t retain as a friend. May I mention here that while many Pakistanis speak of Indian Army raping Muslim Kashmiri women and killing, torturing and abusing their men that back in 71 it was our Army engaged in the same with fellow Muslim East Pakistanis to the extent that Indians were called for help by the Bengalis and our troops made a huge demoralizing surrender.

History has an uncanny way of repeating itself, it seems Pakistan and Pakistanis have learnt nothing if anything at all from their 7 decades of existence besides the familiar slogans of “Long Live Imran Khan” and “Long Live Pak Army and ISI” there is nothing concrete or tangible to talk about except recognizing failure after failure.

We went wrong everywhere, internally and externally, time to speak, write and DO the truthful of things that lead to improvement.

Amateurism is how Imran tackled inherited hell

Fine, things were bad, very bad, internally. What did King Khan do? Raised taxes to make IMF happy which in the same vein broke the back of an impoverished people AND killed whatever hope there was of reviving the economy, next he went on all possible tangents that backfired from austerity drives to loud statements and war of words with Indian Premier whom he later tried to appease and “wished he win so Kashmir is resolved” and the EXACT OPPOSITE happened! Wisdom and Imran Khan don’t go together, top it off with an incompetent team key members often selected by lenders and you have a recipe for disaster. Sealing the fate of Pakistan.

So the way out?

Indian Kashmir is not even remotely the key problem Pakistan faces, as they say in the airlines “place your oxygen mask over your face before you help others” is precisely what our situation is with Indian Kashmiris. We need to stay alive before we can let another soul to life!

Long ago, Stephen Covey who published the bestseller “7 habits of highly effective people” (which applies to nations too) spoke of “circle of concern” and “circle of influence”, the former referring to people who spend their time worrying about what they cannot change and the latter to those who work on areas that bring direct improvement in their lives. The same holds true for nations. Pakistan has been blabbering about issues it has NO control over and doing little on those it should to change the status quo. And Mr Khan now the roving Ambassador of Kashmir is doing the opposite. His lack of understanding of key issues facing Pakistan and their antidotes is only complicating and compounding our problems.

Economy and Justice

The magic words for Pakistan. But the exact opposite is happening since the s/election of the harbinger of change, Imran Khan! Economy is literally dying bending over backwards for the sins of previous “democracies” and justice what to speak of it, suffice to say a pipe dream for most Pakistanis. We have the most corrupt and horrible legal and police systems in the world. Imran has done little to change that. Because he doesn’t even understand WHY it is so and WHAT will change it for the better! Because of his incompetence today we suffer a terrible legal and justice system, a worse economy and a shameful face in the world.

The only people who can bring justice to Pakistan as I wrote in ChangePakistan is the Army, I wrote it back in 2007! 12 years, toiled and met politicians, Army Generals and you name Who is Who of Pakistan. Everyone acknowledged and appreciated my efforts but DID NOTHING tangible to make it happen.

Second, the economy, we need to incentivize people to invest in Pakistan and create jobs, that can only be done by reducing taxes to bare minimum of 10% that too VAT (value added) and no income taxes so people invest! create jobs and revive our dying economy.

We need to, in the same breath reduce expenses by cutting out all government ministries and departments and merging them as CALL CENTRES and APPs in NADRA which should also focus on tax collection using retired army officers and personnel giving exemplary punishment to thieves of the 10% low taxes. Also the Army need to cut down all admin expenses using IT and focus on combat mode needs only. Thus our reduced expenses will be met by a lower tax regime.

This cannot be done without negotiating an “interest and principal” break from IMF and other lenders for atleast 2-5 years so the economy comes back on track.

Extremism is still very much a part of Pakistan and it’s constitution, we need to go secular, allow nightclubs and bars openly to attract tourism, if the Middle East with hot arid deserts can get 200 billion dollars a year from tourism why can’t we?

Foreign relations need to be positive and low key, we need to take a passive then aggressive tone with India and extend a hand of real friendship to them like the rest of our Muslim brothers and sisters, in the interest of our survival and that of 300 million Muslims living in India besides the moderates that are aplenty. Pakistan must not kindle the fire but try its best to douse it. For decades we watched their movies and they loved our dramas, our dressing, jokes, language are far more similar than others, I see every reason to envision an EU like alliance between India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

As for Kashmir we should support the Kashmiri people by funding their Government in exile in the US, France, UK, China, Russia, Singapore, Brussels and Australia independently and where not as extension of Pakistan Missions abroad. We should ask for an INDEPENDENT KASHMIR free of Pakistani or Indian influence with NATO and UN troops to protect them. This is the RIGHT THING to do, it’s ethical and it’s correct. We should woo Kashmiris living outside India in US, UK, EU etc including Muslims, Christians and Hindus in it. This alone will save the subcontinent from the fire of extremism RSS and Modi are stoking.

So in short, life is all about survival of the fittest. India is not the fittest, but is far more fit then we are. Remember that, and chalk out your first goal: survival.
