The smell of conspiracy... By Masood
18 January, 2013
It is getting difficult to keep pace with the events happening in Pakistan. Apparently, all these recent events refer to one thing: the smell of conspiracy. The massacre of more than 100 people in Quetta in twin blasts, the protestors' sit-in for four days with 86 dead bodies in sub-zero temperatures with occasional showers of freezing rain, the clamping of Governor's rule in Balochistan while dismissing the elected government, the statement by the Chief Justice (CJ) that people were looking to the army for protection, Tahirul Qadri's long march, which reached Islamabad on Monday evening, asking for the immediate dismissal of the federal and provincial governments and now the SC's orders to arrest the PM on corruption charges — oh boy, that really is too much!
One must congratulate some hidden forces for a job well done. The stage is being set for a long-term interim government it seems, with the army and judiciary taking the lead role. Perhaps we will miss this once in a lifetime opportunity for an elected government to complete its entire tenure. Good luck Pakistan.
