This is not a first or new incident. I usually get such type of news. Therefore, through this article, I decided to make this issue public besides communicating with my benefactors and critics along with my Pakistani brothers in South Korea. The question is whether only my articles are critical of Pakistan? I feel if instead of criticizing writers and journalists, Pakistani ‘well-wishers’ show their interest in improving the deteriorating administration in Pakistan and controlling violence, it would be better. Pak ‘well-wishers’ are aware of the incident in which the Pakistan security forces intruded into the studio of Geo TV during the telecast of the interview of former President Gen. (Retd.) Parvez Musharraf. This incident was condemned in the entire world.
The expanding network and control of the Taliban over Pakistan is as a result of Pakistani maladministration and not because of writers and journalists. Suicide attacks on daily basis, attempts to encourage sect violence, targeting of people of certain sect, either in Mosques or in Imam Bargahas, on this 10th of Moharram or Ashura, about 50 people were killed, just after its two days near about one hundred innocent people more killed in a attack while they were attending a sports match, can these be ignored by the world? And now it seems that these offensive activities of terrorists are a regular process there. Isn’t this the matter of concern for the entire world? Usually there is news that the biggest terrorist Osama Bin Laden is hiding somewhere on Af-pak border. These days Pakistani Army is said to be fighting with the Taliban in such a way that the war is going on between the armies of the two countries. Is any other part of the world witnessing such anti-terrorist action? If we start talking about the instances of anarchy and lapsed law and order in Pakistan, perhaps it would not be possible to include all of them in many books, forget some articles. The assassination of the former ‘lady’ Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Operation Lal Masjid, attacks on the headquarters of Army and the ISI, attacks on Police training centre, Marriot hotel and Sri Lankan cricket team, the list is endless. Now, even both Pakistan and the US are concerned about the protection of nuclear sites from the Pakistan based terrorist networks of the Taliban and other terrorist organizations.
Now think, after the clarity of all these actions and ambitions of Pakistan, should we hope for any kind of support to the negative policies of Pakistan, aims and objectives of its rulers and its deteriorating situation since last three decades? Should any writer write in support of such circumstances or should any poet cite poems supporting present situation in Pakistan? I want to add one more thing in support of my arguments. Not only my critics are offended by the criticism of Pakistan rather the Pakistani rulers are now appealing to the world to treat Pakistan with sympathy because at present, Pakistan needs support & sympathy and not condemnation & criticism. No journalist, writer or poet is responsible for the helplessness of Pakistan today. This is the handiwork of the Pak rulers and ‘well-wishers’. Current political circumstances made Asif Ali Zardari, the president. But can Pak ‘well-wishers’ tell that who gave the title of ‘Mr. 10 percent’ to him? Any American or Indian journalist or government representative gave the title? Or the Pakistani people and Pakistani media gave itself? Now if the global media sometimes uses this title with respect to Mr. Zardari, the writers and journalists like me are not responsible for that.
