Business as usual

As the country is captivated by the latest version of martial law, it is depressing business as usual here in Karachi. The Nation reports of yet another honour killing in Karachi.

The general and honour killers have something in common: both can’t stand the idea of free will.

    Get your facts right the honour killers are the tribal chiefs and guess who they are aligned with. Yes they are in every political party including PPP.
    Has PP expelled Bijarani?

    Atleast Mushee got rid of that Hudood ordinance despite all the pressure that was put on by these Mullahs, Leaguers and PTI’s meaningful silence.

    if we look from satellite view, the video media is the BLACK SHEEP of the current status, of anarchy in country. People have become so habitual of media trial of EVERYONE that minds and wisodm has gone numb and inactive.

    Common People are STUCK in salary & expense account of bill payments and threats of power & gas shortage. snatching of cars, cell phones and road side plunder is not noticed the suffering of commoners get unnoticed.

    On the otherhand the opportunist are taking the maximum advantage of doing as they please, POLICE is busy with the agenda of their paymasters as usual be it the rulers or the DON of area.

    situation is gradually brining masses to frustration of UNCERTAINTY, and the Enemy of State is fueling it from every corner.

    From where the funding is coming to mobilise lawyers, and now the students across pakistan are challanged to come out on streets.

    I’m afraid that eastern & northern borders are funneling the money trickling down upto metros of Pakistan to destablise the country.

    NO poltical party will get any benefit out of current status, but only THE ARMY.

    again i am feeling threat that we might be heading towards situation as in BURMA and that BB is trying to be YANG SO-CHEE of Pakistan.

    SAD & BAD situation as I do not see ANY civilian who can manage and control the situation, or to bring it LEAST to situation before March 2007.

    The maniac Judge is whinning & crying am Judge and am still Chief Justice, damn it the constitution is suspended so is YOU.

    what is he trying ? from layman point, he should have resigned soon after re-instatment, and caused great insult to GOVT, but he insulted the institute of Supreme court by continuing.

    and seems like he is adamant to become a POLITICAL leader while being Chief justice against the wishes of his fellow judges.

    have any of you noticed that so far none has been killed in these protests against Army?? my take on this is that because ther are all happening in Pujab. if they were happening in Karachi it would have been a different story because pujab police would not open fire on punjab people. on other hand, they feel free to spray bullets on protesters in karachi no matter which party they belong too.
    What your take on this?

    @ Cy, while I humbly respect your sentiments and opinions towards the current emergency and the political clamp down in Pakistan, your case of equating honor killers with the President of the country is as vague as it is disturbing…

    Please don’t get me wrong. I am not a pro-Musharraf guy per say but equating him with honor killers? The entire world is looking at us and hanging on each and every word we utter. Instead of such analogies, we should tell them that this is OUR problem and we will deal with it ourselves without providing you with ‘sensational’ news to feed your frenzy.

    I apologize if this came as too blunt or rude :)

    actually i would say honour killings act more on free will than anything. And its that will that needs to be curtailed dont you think?

    Cy i’m truly surprised at your post! Before this i have generally agreed with your POV, but this post is not well thought-out. Still shaking my head….
