The best entertainment one can find these days while watching prime time telecast is simply to watch how the representatives from both parties do their best to declare each other the biggest “liar”. I must admit that neither the Daily Show hosted by John Stewart or any other programme can produce an entertainment than the one produced by both the parties. MQM, no reason to doubt, has always found a way to remain in the news in one form or the other. It has been crowned as the only party which has evolved without becoming an opposition or moving out of a specific geographical surrounding.
Where the entire nation geared up for a Long March to restore CJ, they found ample time to go for a self declared long march without any goal in mind. They can have 42 innocent people killed right in their domain and still one finds them complaining that in fact it was a conspiracy against them. What governance.
Now when it is clear that the wind is all out to set Musharraf on trial, they have found a new note, with the only difference that it is based on an episode nearly 17 years old. A liberal party by manifesto (though one must refer to Imran Khan for their definition), God knows what has occupied their mind this time around. It was PPP and MQM who have secured maximum out of the spirit of reconciliation(NRO) and they are vocal every time to declare that we are moving in a new direction, but still one finds them opening up files which were locked many years back.
To PML-N I don’t have words of appreciation, although of a different kind. Its leadership, precisely Mr. Nawaz has in the name of friendly opposition destroyed the whole credibility of an institution called the parliament. One cannot find an example like this where evil is protected today for the betterment of tomorrow. After every accord he has landed himself in trouble, only to stand up and gear up for another accord. The position in which he has found himself, it is required that he must play a role seen in the past from Nawabzada Nasrullah but unfortunately this is not the case. Where it is a known fact that this will help neither of them, they have dragged many controversial entities into the whole drama. One watches every day how former spy masters are revealing facts (who knows true or false) and on its bases our politicians our deriving new policies.
For so long the political forces in Pakistan have cried that the only root cause for the failure of democracy is the invisible hand of establishment and today from Raiwind to London they are fighting on the claims made by the same power. So shameful, in the end it really hurts every Pakistani when they see their capital turning into a US colony of 7000 marines, flour and sugar not accessible even in Ramadan, an uncertain future with no economical prosperity, an unseen presence of Taliban still haunting, But our political gurus out there to settle the scores from the past. Undoubtedly the vacuum of leadership has damaged us more than any thing else.
