Sugar Crisis In Pakistan; Is There Any Other Name For A Thief

Well, undoubtedly Pakistan is a place where new records are set every day, but the recent crisis where the entire lot of country’s sugar disappeared is one of its kind. It was amazing how the crack down was launched, and in no time media screens were flashing with reports that thousands of sacks hidden from the public eye were discovered.

But like always, out of unknown reasons the accused party, which especially included Sugar Mills Foundation, were brought to the table of talks with highest honor, and as if they have achieved a fantastic feat, and were awarded. This was no less than a “Mafia” style operation where you hijack the masses and get your illegitimate desires approved. It doesn’t matter who was behind this whole drama and to which party he/she belonged, but simply letting them run away with their crime is a shame.

It was amazing to see how Punjab Law Minister on air claimed that Mr. Wattoo has played an unfair game and his action has deprived masses of billion. Whatever is the reality, I don’t hold the establishment accused alone but I am ashamed that being Muslims just for the sake of money they have given sleepless nights to their needy brothers and sisters, and that too just before a holy month like Ramadan. What a shame. There is no other word to describe them as “criminal” and “thief” and they should be tried in the court of justice, no matter who they are.

  1. Our country Pakistan having all resources in large amount.There is nothing short.In Pakistan the lack of planing.
    If A good planer is come in this country then every thing is available in sufficent amount.May God save our country from such crisis

  2. Majority of the politicians of Pakistan either in the govt. or opposition are the owners of sugar mills and they are the real criminals. I would like to ask one question from the sugar mill owners , ” The sugar in stock was crushed last season and was sold at a reasonable rate and suddenly the prices starting increasing. Why? The sugar had already been crushed and stored!! What extra cost was involved afterward?In my opinion it is only the PERPETUAL GREED of these criminals

    its owner rather than honour u fool……….
    i must say the style of speech clearly resembles that we hear usually from a foreign state……….
    so to CJ i ask…….plz punish the criminals who have either got amnesty with the help of some presidential ordinance or those who are moving on an anti pakistan agenda?
    some one told me in total there are hundreds of sugar mills operating in pakistan,, still 6 can have a monopoly? well such wisdom is only possible with one political party

  4. SHAREEF BADMAASH FAMILY IS THE HONOR OF 6 SUGAR MILLS AND THEY ARE A CURSE ON OUR COUNTRY.
    MY QUESTION TO EVERY ONE READING THIS POST … WHY CJ SUPREME COURT IS NOT TAKING ACTION AGAINST SHAREEF FAMILY ? JUST BECAUSE HE SUPPORTED HIM IN HIS RESTORATION ? BUT HOW LONG THIS GAME WILL BE PLAYED ? WHY SO-CALLED LAWYERS ARE SILENT ? WHERE IS MEDIA ? WHERE IS S0-CALLED CIVIL SOCIETY ?
    REMEMBER… ALLAH IS WATCHING EVERY THING… WE CAN NOT ACT BECAUSE WE ARE MUNAFIQ … WE CALL TRUTH FALASE AND FALSE NAME TRUTH.

  5. @Hend: Yes, and further, we have no alternative but to follow the collective illusions of “how society works;” we’re all in this together, profit is theft but how can we live without it, and no man is an island. I’m not either, but probably as close as a human can get to being one, being self-employed and calling my own shots most of the time.

    But I make a clear distinction between how one’s fortune is won–earned or stolen–, and guage men (women, too) by how they did it. I must confess that I do not have a lot of respect for those who ride on other people’s labor and sweat by way of law. I labor and sweat myself, and have been seriously ripped off by “management” a couple of times. In my mind, NO person’s time is worth more than any other’s; there are no rich celebrities in my universe. Huge money does not make one “great,” because of the possibility that it was “legally” stolen.

    I walk the walk.

    I grasp that many leaders are brighter than most people, and truly entitled to lead because they do it better, but I do not see how it entitles them to more pay or to amass enormous fortunes when others are starving.

    @Hamid: You’re a nicer guy than I am. 🙂

    Politicians or so called ‘leaders’ are a part and parcel of the society. If the society is corrupt then the people who we choose to govern us are bound to be corrupt. The blatantness of it reflects the spread of this evil in the society in general.

    They get away because we let them get away but for that to happen, citizens should be willing to give up their vested interests too. Why would a person whose business bypasses regulations, evades taxes and benefits from bribing the government or civic officials or police want to change things? Why would his employees report this anywhere if the consequence is that of losing their jobs or being laid off?

    Are citizens willing to walk the talk?
