During the reign of Military General in spite of having the
knowledge that army as a department or the Military Chain of Command has
nothing to do with the political interests of its Commander; the propaganda and
criticism of few self-proclaimed intellectuals or journalists against military,y
collectively is something beyond understanding. Majority of these intellectuals
or journalists are habitual of criticizing national security agencies not due
to their love for democracy but because of the dollars they receive from abroad
for their anti-Pakistan propaganda. They have neither felt any need to
criticize the attitude of politicians taking democracy not as  a mean to serve the public but to steal the
national assets, the poor administrative control and corruption during
democratic govt. has nothing to do with these so-called intellectuals; nor do
they dare to disclose the factors that force the Military Leader to impose
Martial Law. They will never discuss that how these factors that end in martial
law could be tackled, but their only goal is to decrease if not demolish the
love and respect for armed forces present within the Public. Whenever there is democracy
in the country and nation is enjoying its fruits, the representatives of public
are in the assemblies no matter the dispersion, lawlessness and corruption
created and supported by these politicians crushing the nation but these
intellectuals will only criticize army.
              Same like
situation is prevailing now a days in the country, corruption is sucking the
blood out of society as a cancer and no one is ready to listen against this
democratic corruption. The stealing of the national treasures and assets is at
its peak, the artificial crises of energy has forced the motherland towards
darkness, kidnapping for ransom has become the lucrative business supervised by
selected representatives of public, the adulteration is on its peak that pulses
are costlier than pulses’ floor. People are feeding chemical to their children as
milk, load shedding has paralyzed the economy; Sheikh Rasheed says that army is
sleeping but a selective part of the journalists is busy in blaming army for
all these gifts of democracy. Some are busy in criticizing army in the name of
war on terror, the recent example is the column of Khaled Ahmad, “General
Kiyani’s War
” published on 25 August, 2012. In this column in spite of
presence of democracy in the country, army has been criticized for arrest and
release of American terrorist Raymond Davis, Abbottabad Operation, NATO attack
over Salala Check post, Cutting and resuming of NATO supply line, and Memo Gate
Scandal all has been posed as defeat of army and General Kiyani has been blamed
for all this. Moreover the writer of the column has criticized the address of
General Kiyani of 14th August in the PMA Kakul Academy in order to
misguide international community that undercover army is in power in the
              While the
elected govt. is about to complete its tenure, the elected representatives of
govt. and opposition both acknowledge that the decision, army has made under
the leadership of General Kiyani during last elections to stay away from
politics has been fulfilled and army is strictly acting over this policy of not
interfering into the political system. In the worst times of sectarian killings
and gang wars, army has provided chance to the politicians to tackle the
situation and set their own policies. If military has limited itself than how
it is possible that army interferes in the foreign matters and elected govt.
remains silent over it?
              As long
as the discussion against war on terror is concerned this has become obsolete
and unimportant now. The targets of terrorists are not Americans or American
agencies but Pakistanis and Pakistani security agencies. The military
installations responsible for national defense, security agencies ensuring the
safety of the motherland, innocent children, women, elderly people in the
markets are the target of these foreign funded but locally supported
terrorists. Is not this the war against Pakistan? There is no doubt that these
terrorists targeting national assets and defense installation are mostly Pakistani
citizens but no one ever dares to investigate the hands behind them, providing
them weapons, gorilla training, brainwashing them to utilize them to
destabilize and weaken defense line of Pakistan. You may call them terrorists
or Taliban this does not have any value but the most important question is why
these so-called terrorists who are labeled as Islamic extremists do not target
pubs, dance parties and other such gatherings or buildings? Why their only
target are the defense installations that provide defense to the nation against
any foreign invasion especially from India and now from Western invaders as
well present in Afghanistan. Whether it is Kamra or Mehran airbase why the
airplanes that provide superiority to PAF against India were the target? What was
the link with these terrorists from TTP and Indian Air-force afraid of PAF’s capabilities?
What is the link between these terrorist destroying physical assets of national
defense and these self-proclaimed intellectuals targeting the prestige and morale
of the soldiers responsible for defense of motherland? Does anyone have answer
to these burning questions?
              Had anyone
ever thought that why India has not become target of a suicide bomber (Indian Generals
might decide to end this monopoly of Pakistan of suicide attacks after reading
these lines) in the last 40 years while India is always blaming Pakistan for
supporting and cultivating terrorism. The situation in Pakistan is that
thousands have become target of suicide bombers and terrorists and still Pakistan
is blamed for terrorism? Is not this an open war against Pakistan with the
wagers of war clearly identifiable as well? Critics claim that terrorism within
Pakistan is the reaction of Pakistan’s foreign policy towards Afghanistan than
will these critics explain American attacks over Iraq and Libya after
devastating Afghanistan? Were they also affected by Pakistan’s policy for Afghanistan?
Is not this the bitter reality that America and its western allies are
determined to destroy each and every country that becomes a hurdle in their
imperialistic plans? After Iraq and Libya next target is Syria. Iraq was
destroyed for  allegedly having the
weapons of mass destruction but when this allegation proved to be fake and
western pirates could not find any evidence they justified their massacre of
millions of Iraqi’s in the name of removing a dictator. Now this drama is being
staged into Libya and Syria. But Arab monarchies are invisible to these western
pirates and our intellectuals as well.
Ahmad has claimed arrest and release of Raymond Davis as a wrong decision by
General Kyani but he did not explain that why and how a foreign agent and
soldier of USA was present in Pakistan on the diplomatic visa? Not only Raymond
Davis, God knows how many American agents are present in the country under
cover of being diplomats and cultivating terrorism. Why did not Khalid Ahmad
discuss their (American/CIA terrorists) arrival into Pakistan, how did they get
visas, what are their activities in Pakistan? Will he ever dare to question that how a foreign
soldier and CIA agent got visa from Pakistani embassy in USA without clearance
from ISI? When ISI tried to check the activities of these American disguised
terrorists as American ambassadors than the result was the murder of two Pakistanis
by an American terrorist in Lahore on the public place. The arrest of Raymond Davis
unveiled American agents operating in the Pakistan and USA has to face
defamation over the international level which forced USA to pull its agents out
of Pakistan.
              Army and
its leadership is criticized but no one points out the flaws and loop holes in
the judicial system of the country which is limited only to Constitutional
explanations and political disputes in spite of punishing culprits or providing
justice to the public. The acquitting of an alleged culprit in Faisalabad for
attacks over secret agencies due to lack of direct sufficient evidence is the
recent example of loop holes present in the legal system. There is no law for
investigations and punishments of terrorists while our parliament does not feel
any need to pass any law that could be used against terrorists (however bills providing
relief to corrupt politicians are passed within few minutes). And now the
sectarian disputes and killings has also become a challenge to the motherland but
no one dares to address these issues not even our intellectuals and journalists
pouring their poisonous propaganda into the ears of the nation through their
talk-shows. No one is concerned about these killings, no matter one dies from
which side both killed are Pakistanis.

              In the
way General Kiyani pointed out the increasing restlessness and extremism in the
minds of public, was appreciated by all Pakistanis but the real problem is that
whether it is terrorism or sectarianism both are threatening the integrity of Pakistan.
It is not the duty of only army to tackle this situation but whole nation will
have to unite against it to safeguard the freedom. Army cannot win this internal
war imposed by enemies of our sovereignty without the collective support from
the nation. The need of the hour is that whether it is sectarianism, target
killing, gang wars of Karachi, kidnappings in Baluchistan nation should be
united against all these threats to national independence considering them as
war. Pakistan is facing a war; we not only have to defend our freedom by
winning this war and defeating the hidden hands of enemies behind it but also
safeguard the future of our upcoming generations. But this is only possible when
our gurus sitting in the talk-shows will stop propaganda against our own
security agencies and guide the nation in the correct direction. When they will
inform the nation that when the greedy persons present within us can sell meat
of sick and dead donkeys/dogs than why cannot they murder their own countrymen in
the name of terrorism and sectarianism for dollars provided by enemies of the motherland?
It is inevitable to remove and punish these elements; why only them, from Karachi
to Northern Waziristan whoever threatens the national interested shall be
