Attack on Benazir.

19 October, 2007

Charred body parts littered the road flanked by giant plums of fire wafting upward from several burning vehicles as two powerful blasts struck the specially modified lorry of the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto upon her return from Dubai after an eight-year long self exile.

Ms Bhutto, who remained unhurt, was leading a 3 kilometers-long procession at the main highway of the commercial hub of Pakistan, Shara-e-Faisal- standing behind the bullet proof screen of a specially modified lorry equipped with bomb jammers and cordoned off by some 300 trained security guards throughout her journey.

The explosions, which occurred within two minutes, were declared an act of a suicide bomber within half an hour by the police.

However, Security agencies contest each other’s claims regarding suicide bombing.

The bomb disposal squad doubts that it was a suicide attack. “ It seems if the bombs were planted either in two of vehicles or along the footpath”, a senior bomb disposal squad said. Eyewitnesses are also skeptical bout the suicide bombing claims. “ I was clinging to the lorry when I saw a police vehicle tossed in the air with a powerful explosion. I fell on the ground, and lost my senses”, Niaz Ali, one of the security guards surrounding Ms Bhutto’s motorcade said.

Before the explosions, the area Ms Bhutto’s procession passing through was surprisingly in dark as the street lights were switched off as soon as dusk approached making the task easier for the terrorists.

“ This was not the act of militants. An intelligence agency is involved in the attack”, Asif Zardari, the spouse of Ms Bhutto told a local TV channel”, Mr Zardari says demanding a through investigation as regards involvement of the intelligence agency in the terrorist attack.

Farhatullah Babar, the spokesman of Ms Bhutto told newsmen that she has demanded of General Musharraf to remove the head of IB from his office, who according to her is responsible for the terrorist attack.

Here are some questions
1)keeping the given circumstances in mind, do you think it was a suicide attack?
2)If yes, who could be behind that?
3)And If no, then what kind of advantage government and Benazir want to achieve?
4)It has become a fashion in Pakistan to declare any terrorism related incident as a result of suicide attack. What do you say?

I CRY FOR MY BELOVED COUNTRY

WHY ARE BROTHERS KILLING BROTHERS?

NO TRUE MUSLIMS WOULD DO SUCH A THING.

WHETHER IT WAS A SUICIDE ATTACK OR NOT THE AIM WAS TO DESTROY THE PURITY OF THE FAITH.

Pre-Planned Attack

I think it was a pre-planned action, just to get sympathy from Pakistani people by BB party. Due to the remarks BB made before coming to Pakistan her party and her fame in Pakistan was very low. This will help her to gain some strength to her party. It’s sad to see those entire people death and no one to be held responsible, not even BB who knew about the threat but she is so thirsty for the power that she will do anything to get back into Politics. I feel sorry for what is happening in Pakistan nowadays.

Rommi, United Kingdom - 19 October, 2007

Ballots, not bullets.

BALLOTS,NOT BULLETS ARE THE RULES OF GAME IN DEMOCRACY.CRITICISM BY THE PEN SHOULD BE THE MAXED PENALTIES FOR THE POLITICAL DISORDERS.

THIS WHOLE TRAGEDY WAS AKIN TO A PAK DAY IN THE KILLING FIELDS OF IRAQ. PEOPLE SHOULD MAX OUT ONLY TO THE EXTENT OF CRITICISING BY THE PEN OR DIALOGUE.

THIS WHOLE ISSUE OF BOMBINGS OR SUICIDE IN KARACHI IS SCARY AND WE HAVE TO HIDE OUR HEADS WITH SHAME AS LOSS OF HUMAN LIFE IS DEPLORABLE. IF NOT CHECKED BY NATION GETTING INTO TOLERATING EACH OTHER,WE COULD BE AN OTHER IRAQ.EVERY SENSIBLE MAN OR WOMAN COMMISERATES WITH THE SURVIVOR'S OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES.POOR MAN'S LIFE IS BECOMING CHEAP AND THE POLITICAL ACTORS ARE ALSO RESORTING TO HATE MONGERING, HORSE TRADING, KANGAROO COURTS, UNPOPULAR POLICIES AND STATEMENTS, MANIPULATIONS THROUGH MONEY, DISREGARD OF NATION'S LAWS AND CONSTITUTION AND MUCH ROUDY BEHAVIOUR THAT REALLY MAKES ONE THINK IF WE REALLY NEED A DEMOCRACY AT ALL.

THE LAST NIGHT BLOODY TRAGEDY MAKES THE WHOLE NATION SCARED IF WE ARE SLIPPING INTO IRAQ TYPE SCENARIO.IF KARACHI IS REALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO SUCH SAD INCIDENTS THEN BAN ARMS AND GATHERINGS IN THAT CITY AND MAKE IT THE COMMERCIAL HEART OF PAKISTAN ONLY.

THERE ARE SEVERAL INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ROOT CAUSES AND ROOT BENDS THAT HAVE MADE PAKISTAN VERY DANGEROUS PLACE.PERHAPS IT IS NOT THAT DANGEROUS IF YOU STAY AWAY FROM POLITICS,WHERE MONEY IS TO BE MADE.THIS STARTS THE ELIMINATION PROCESS AND TROUBLES.THEN, ARMS ARE AFLOAT ALL OVER PAKISTAN AND EVEN LARGE SCALE EXPLOSIVES SNEAK IN SOME HOW.POOR , ILLITERATE AND IGNORANT PEOPLE ARE SUCKED IN WITH TIME BEING MASSAGE OF CORRECTING THEIR HARDSHIPS BY ONE PARTY OR THE OTHER AND THESE UNFORTUNATE ONES HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE WITH THEIR BLOOD OR LIFE.

MOST IMPORTANT,PAK POLITICAL ARENA IS CORRUPT,IT ROBS,IT LIES,IT SWAPS THE PLAYERS, IT BRIBES AND IT WILL EMBROIL IN ANY THING TO EVEN FINISH OFF THE COUNTRY THROUGH INTRIGUES,PARTNER SWAPPING AND INDULGING INTO ALL TYPES OF CORRUPTION OF MONETARY OR HUMAN BODY TRADING FOR PLEASURE.

EVEN A MODEST CROWD OF QUARTER MILLION PEOPLE OR SO IN A POPULATION OF 17 MILLION KARACHITES HAD TO EXPERIENCE SUCH A TRAGEDY WHEN MILLION PEOPLE FELT SAFE IN LARGER RALLIES AROUND LEADERS OF THE PAST.

PAKISTAN POLITICS HAS TO BE CAREFUL,FOR SAFETY AND SECURITY REASONS,IN GIVING OUT CERTAIN TYPE STATEMENTS THAT ARE NOTICED FOR SOME AVENGE OR REVENGE UNDER THE VERY VOLATILE SITUATION AFTER 9/11.

FOR THE VERY SAFETY OF POLITICIANS AND THE INNOCENT MASSES,WHO GET FOOLISHLY SUCKED IN THERE,PAKISTANIS POLITICAL LEADERS AND MASSES MUST REFRAIN FROM GIVING OUT STATEMENTS THAT CREATE NATIONAL DIVIDE.PAKISTAN CAN AND SHOULD SOLVE ITS PROBLEMS INTERNALLY AND THERE IS NO NEED OF BRINGING IN ANY OUTSIDERS MILITARY. OUR OWN ARMED FORCES REPRESENT ALL ETHNICITIES ROLLED UP INTO ONE,AND ARE PRONE TO LESS CRITICISM AND WELCOME TO RECONCILLIATIONS AND AMENDS,MUTUAL EMBRACE AS WE WILL HAVE TO SURVIVE TOGETHER.THE NATION HAS VERY SERIOUS QUESTIONS TO ASK ITSELF AS SUCH:

"ARE WE SLIPPING INTO IRAQ TYPE SCENARIO AFTER THE FIRST MISHAP OF THE SCALE LAST NIGHT AND HOW TO AVOID ANY REPEAT IN FUTURE."

FORCE IS NOT THE ANSWER AND MUTUAL BUTTRESSING AND RESPECT OF FELLOW PAK LIFE WILL HELP THE MOST.

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS AS SUCH:

1)keeping the given circumstances in mind, do you think it was a suicide attack?

Answer:
WHAT EVER IT WAS,IT IS SHAMEFUL.IT WAS REPLAY OF ONE DAY OF IRAQ IN PAK CITY OF KARACHI.LET US MAKE KARACHI A NON POLITICAL CITY.

2)If yes, who could be behind that?

Answer: GIVEN THE DANGEROUSLY VOLATILE SITUATION AROUND PAKISTAN AND GIVEN THE HINTS OF BRINGING IN FOREIGN INTERVENTION TO SUPERCEDE OUR OWN ARMED FORCES,OUR COUNTRY IS TERRIBLY EXPOSED TO DANGERS.

"FOR WHERE THERE IS A SMOKE, YOU'LL FIND THE FIRE."

3)And If no, then what kind of advantage government and Benazir want to achieve?

Answer:
NO ONE INCLUDING POLITICAL PARTIES OR THE GOVERNMENT WILL ACHIEVE ANY THING. IT WILL BE LIKE BUILDING CASTLES OF POVERTY ON HUMAN SKULLS,IF UNFORTUNATELY,WE SLIP INTO IRAQ TYPE SCENARIOS.NO BODY SHOULD EVEN BRING IN THE ALREADY EXALTED PLAYERS OF BURNING IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN INTERACTING WITH PAK RELATED INTERNAL SECURITY.DON NOT EVEN MENTION OF SIMILAR ACTS TO BE PROMULGATED WITHIN PAK TERRITORIES.THEY ALL LAUGH WHEN OUR PEOPLE OR IRAQIS OR AFGHANIS DIE EXCEPT THAT FEW VESTED INTERESTS AMONG SAME POLITICIANS OR OTHERS FILL THEIR POCKETS WHILE THE POOR DIE. I WOULD NEVER EVER JOIN A POLITICAL RALLY PERSONALLY TO SAVE MY OWN SKIN.

4)It has become a fashion in Pakistan to declare any terrorism related incident as a result of suicide attack. What do you say?

Answer:
SUICIDAL ATTACK OR LADEN BOMB, I FEEL VERY SAD AND I DO COMMISERATE WITH THE SURVIVORS OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES.DEFINITELY,I WOULD CONGRATULATE BB ON HER ESCAPE.IT MAY BE OK TO CRITICISE WITH A PEN.BUT BULLETS INSTEAD OF BALLOTS ARE NOT THE ANSWER FOR OUR LOVELY PAK PEOPLE.

Condolence

I remember the day when Benazir and PPP leaders were cheering on murder of Jamia Hafsa Students. Fascists of PPP and MQM did not wait for the burial of dead bodies of innocent women and children. It was worst example of indiscreet and puerility. We never have thought that Raza Rabbani, Raja Pervez or other leaders would have barbarian mentality. How ever in civilised terms we condole deaths of poor workers of PPP, it was great tragedy in the history of Pakistan.
I will again remind that it is against values of civilised peoples to start criticism before the burial of dead bodies and without sharing grief of love ones.
Death is for every human being, rulers who are filling pockets with looted money must understand that each one has to leave this world, empty handed. Haughtiness on the basis of power is temporary.
We also pray that may Allah give wisdom to PPP leaders to take out some money out of their pockets for helping poor and devoted workers of PPP. It is tradition of Bhutto family and Makhdooms and Mujawirs of PPP to keep flow of one way traffic towards their pockets.
Last week workers of PPP were bearing breads in their hands written Roti in Urdu. Please help them on the name of humanity.
We share grief with families, workers killed in blast and pray for quick recovery of injured.

Ghulam Rasool Chuadhry, Pakistan - 20 October, 2007

innocent lives lost,why?

political leaders,religious leaders and media should not exploit this incident.Focus on all the innocent people who died , because of some crazy person.Find the guilty people ,give them the punishment they deserve and do everything possible to comfort the families who lost there loved ones.

Amir Iqbal, Pakistan - 20 October, 2007

How cheap is our blood!!!!!!

For the political advertisement of the most corrupt politicians of our country, hundreds of my country's poor and innocent people are slaughtered. That is what our intelligence agencies, our politicians, and our military and civil establishments do when they need to do it to achieve the ‘desired’ results. The irony is that our innocent people do not even think on these questions, why somebody is brought from self-exiled now? Why she was cleared of all charges of corruptions? Why the two foes are made friends? What they want to achieve? What could be the agenda? How will they try to achieve that agenda? Alas! They would think about these questions before emotionally jump on to those bandwagons to become Jiyalas, Josheelas and Jan-nisarans for somebody who has looted their money to amazed billions of dollars and palaces in foreign countries. Why we make such people our gods or goddesses so easily? Why we forgive them so easily? I am unable to understand that but I know that how these corrupt establishments mobilize the emotional people of my country to come for someone like Benazir so they can get maximum ‘results’ out of the event they orchestrate.

One of our great poets, Sahir Ludhyanvi says:

Bare dinon say hay yeh mashghala siyasat ka
Kay jab jawan hon bachay to qatl ho jayen

What the so-called “liberal forces” of the country just wanted to show to their masters (who happen to be “Evangelical-cum-Judaic-Christians and corporate bigots rather than liberals) was that they were under threat from extremists in Pakistan and they should be supported by them in their so-called “fight against terrorism”. The people who are at the helms of the affairs are not public loving or they have any sympathy with the masses but their main concern is to come or stay in the power to have authority, prestige and loads of public money to further their empires. Who are Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Pakistan? They are, actually, the products of CIA, ISI, IB and other establishments like these. So, how can they strike like this without their masters? They just can not. I will request to my countrymen, please, for God sake, don’t be emotional and open your eyes to see the hidden forces working behind these political bigots and try to avoid to be killed so easily by them in such a high numbers. Please, don’t be fooled by thee greedy and corrupt politicians and establishments and avoid large public gatherings to safeguard yourselves and don’t make emotional attachments with this or that political family while choosing your leaders. We should be thinking that the blood of Benazir, Musharraf and Nawaz is not expensive than our own blood so why to spill it for those people? Why they have more security than the masses? Why, so far, no big name has been killed in so many of those blasts? Why Musharraf, Shaukat, Benazir, Sherpao are not killed in those blasts but only innocent people?




Hidayat Ullah, Canada - 20 October, 2007

Attack on Benazir and resemblance of political situation with Iraq-1

Targeted attack on PPP rally at Karachi left many questions un-answered, but as a Pakistani national now we are expert to view such acts with our own vision educated by statements of national and international media, Government of Pakistan and victims.
“Project of the new American Century” have taught us lessons to learn goals and achievements of United States and strategies conducted by CIA. Practical applicability of those projects in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan has been matured and now we can talk about results. Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and other neo-conservative philosophers are fascist in nature and their policy is no more secret and a student of political science could easily collect pieces of their strategic puzzle with little wisdom. A lot of world renowned scholars have already commented on this subject, to use litmus test on recent Benazir policies and its co-relation with neo-conservatives and comparison and resemblance to Iraq policy.

Benazir’s policies:
US and UK have established a studio with a board on main entrance “Wanted” where politicians of Muslim and poor countries are hired. On other hand Muslim and poor countries have also established an igloo where on the main entrance a board is places “For Sale”. Business of sale and procurement of faiths and loyalties is most successful business under the circumstances.
Benazir adopted same strategies which Ahmed Challabi and Abdul Majeed Al Khoi adopted against President Saddam Hussain. Before arrival of Benazir a bribe of $1.5 billion of looted money was put in her pocket. When Al Khoi was killed at Najaf, main concern was million of dollars which were paid to him; some cash was discovered from his dead body. Both Iraqi revolutionaries later converted Iraq in to hell for their personal gains. Others like Al-Sistani, Iyad Allawi, Ibrahim Jaffri, Baqar Al Hakim and Noori Al Maliki act as front line Mujahideen for CIA cause.
Mush, Benazir and Altaf Husain are playing same Anglo-American game, hired to sell loyalties and faith for the sake of permanent hiring. Troika has one thing common; all are life long (Ta Hayat) leaders of respective gangs.

Strategy based on sectarian and ethnic division:
Some scholars are raising their voice against sectarian and ethnic extremism in the society but no body can help because it is state policy to divide and rule. Shape of such violence change direction, moves from clergy to Mosques, doctors to lawyers, and public meetings to rallies. Similar to this neo-cons have given birth to neo-moderates in Pakistan, since Oct 1999 new form of extremism has taken place, like moderate extremists, vulgar extremists and enlighten extremists.
Each type of extremism is based on ethnic or sectarian footings. Promotion of Sufism, visiting Imambara at Lucknow, jumping on the roof of Kaaba, watching dancing prostitutes on the name of Sham e Qalander at Ajoka Theatre, Basant, marathons and massage is named moderate culture based on love, where as fundamental Muslim culture of prayers is called terrorism. MQM type generals are Pakistani but Bloch and Pushtoon are foreigners.
Benazir played many cards like Ahmed Chalabi and Khoi. Lal Masjid, Waziristan, Balochistan, FATA and condemning Main stream Sunni parties was product of same “Project New American Century”. To divide nation on ethnic and religious grounds, let them fight with each other, keep money in pockets for generations.
She used Sindh card, before departure from Dubai wide coverage to “Imam Zamin” was given to show her die heart Shia.
Shia scapegoats:
Neo-cons are using Shia card successfully to divide Muslims on the basis of sectarian differences. Success of Hezbollah made fearful to Sunni rulers, Atom Bomb of Iran is a panic among Arabs, all kingdoms and Sheikhdoms have large military presence of western forces, ethnic division is going to take whole region in its grip. It is misconception among a few top Shia leaders that neo-Cons or neo-Imperialists are on their back. What results Iraqi Shia’s have achieved except destruction, Shia’s will never be allowed to achieve any political victory, it is not in the interests of any one, except they want to use Shia card to achieve benefits from rich Arab states, by keeping their forces with pay and using air force bases for attack on other Muslim countries.
In their eyes Shia’s are most dangerous then humble Hosni Mubarik and Shah Husain. Talking on this topic is not in religious sense but religo-political sense.
Beware of Benazir type foolish Shia friends, very soon those will ask blood of your children for their political stability. Bravery of Ahmadinejad is an example for other sycophant Muslim rulers, who are killing own citizens to promote neo-moderation.


International Professor, Pakistan - 21 October, 2007

Attack on Benazir and resemblance of political situation with Iraq-2

Pakistan Army’s new Strategy:
New appointed generals are looking for making more room in the eyes of neo-cons by waging war against civilians. Mush has divided nation for ever on sectarian grounds. Using an Ahmadi and a Shia General to brutally murder thousand of students of Jamia Hafsa, burning Quran and books of Hadis has created a line of hate which will never be omitted from the hearts. Present wise decisions of Supreme Courts may create an atmosphere of harmony among peoples; otherwise common behavior is mostly to flare up the sectarian situation.

Famous Shia group has informed some further details:
Najam Sethi and Jugnu Mohsin are leading Shia spokespersons, this is largest Shia political group headed by Abida Husain, Fakhar Imam and Sughra Imam. Abida Husain was on top of the roof of bullet proof truck with Benazir. This group has very long ties with CIA, long appointments at US has made them influential in foreign affairs, Amjad, Babar and Abida are famous names in this context. During her stay at Washington as ambassador, Abida Hussain arranged an international Jafria Convention on government expenses. It is easily understandable that why Shia card is most important for neo-cons. On one side coward Mush is shivering and on other side agenda of sectarian division is near completion.
Above Shia group commented on future strategy of Pakistan Army in Daily Times that Sunni Soldiers of Pak Army are refusing to attack on villagers and as such desertion rate among Sunni soldiers has increased significantly. New sycophant generals are planning to enroll Shia soldiers to eliminate whole population once for all.
Mush is using this type of tactics to divide nation on sectarian and ethnic grounds and create an anarchy type situation which is blood line of fascist dictators. He is using Ahmadi Air Chief to bombard civilians; other commandants of Shawal rifles Ali Reza and Maj Gen Azhar Ali Shah of Tochi scouts, ex Core Commander Peshawar are all Shia is an example. This is not a co-incidence but it is a fact that most important strategic post has been awarded to a retired Lt. Gen of MQM ignoring serving generals.
Welcome to Benazir:
After blast as usual Brig. Javed Iqbal Cheema of National Crisis Management Cell and Kamal Shah Secretary Interior announced suicide attack as per policy of Federal Government. On each incidence they have written statement which they use soon after each killing. They have sufficient skulls and body parts of foreigners and Al Qaeda type peoples to pass on to media. This never proved later.
MQM Governor and interior Minister are always dead sure that this is suicide attack and conducted by Islamists.
Mush and company revive their pledge on War on terror.
Raja Parvez Ashraf leader of PPP says that new VCOAS is his musair (Cousin), Mush is brother in law of PPP, Bush and Gordon are their patrons, Benazir told Mush and Al-Nahyan in privacy that who will kill her? So welcome was in ideal situation, even terrorists of MQM announced their support, so why this terrorist act killed dozens of innocent peoples.
Shia card of Benazir has failed like Khoi, she is fortunate that her fate was not like Khoi and it is good luck of the peoples of Pakistan that sectarian drama to make Pakistan another Iraq has flopped. Najam Sethi, Hasan Askari Rizvi and other Shia so called defense strategic analysts have been blaming Saudi Arabia and Gulf States for promotion of Wahabi, Ahle Hadis, Salafi and Deobandi cause, now they must revise their thoughts and statements that all such Wahabi’s are supporting Shia Benazir, as per instructions of Washington. It is not any secret that Council General of US at Lahore is flag bearer of Sufism and all green turban fundamentalist Mullahs are measuring stairs of his office.
Profligacy of Benazir is entirely dependent on looted money and orphan like leaders around her kept themselves attached for the sake of further benefits in spite of her rancorous and rampant absurdity, status of corruption of Jahangir Badar, Yousuf Raza Gailani, Hakim Ali Zardari and all others who left PPP are well known and on record. While Nahid Khan’s plot at Rawal Dam and Sherry Rahman’s allotment of new Bank has left no one which is attached simply on ideologies.
This terrorist’s act as alleged by PPP either conducted by Govt. agencies, Ch; Pervaiz Elahi, Arbab Rahim, Sh: Rashid or Ijaz ul Haq is deploreable. Major responsibility lies on Benazir herself for evil mindness.

BENAZIR BHUTTO

It was a shameful act of ignorance that Muslim militants,who are hiding in rat holes of pakistan tribal areas attacked a peaceful rally of people who were welcoming their leader BENAZIR BHUTTO.I am against her deal with military janta of pakistan but she is still a icon of paklistani politics like her father.Musharaf regime has been failed in protecting lives of pakistanis against terrorist attacks by osama and his company,after his failure,Musharaff regime must now allow American froces to attack those rat holes of osama in tribal areas of pakistan,Mush regime should also arrest and punish former officials of Pakistan Army who have links with osama,Former ISI guy HAMID GUL must be hand over to America for his involement and links with osama.who is in control in Pakistan?Some people are criticizing Benazir but lets put it this way, in Pakistan every a single politician is corrupt. if not why they don't talk about developmental plans. see, all the world does not know under what conditions are Pakistanis living.this all because their politicians really don't care for em.By the way, you people please find out how much money a politician makes in Pakistan during his/her term? its like investment and profit taking game.
Pakistani suffer every day,poverty,corruption,low rate of literacy,load shedding,suicided,poor selling thier kids and kidneys for money,while pakistani politicians are enjoying wealth,USA and other countries dont know what happens to all the aid pakistani govts get from them,everything just on paper in reallity all the money goes to ARMY Generals pockets and politians bank accounts in other countries.


M WAQAR, United Kingdom - 21 October, 2007

Agent Rulers..

The massacre in Karachi had been widely predicted. Benazir Bhutto herself has stated that she was aware of the dangers. The government pleaded with her to delay her return. Jihadi leaders, angered by her slavish support of US foreign policy, had publicly threatened to kill her. She survived but a few hundred people have been killed without reason.Her husband, who decided not to accompany her, has accused Pakistani intelligence of complicity in the attacks. Benazir Bhutto herself has preferred to attack the followers of a dead military dictator.

Once it had become obvious that something was being planned, she would have been better advised to make a quiet return, but she insisted on a show of strength. The planning had been going on for over a month. The 130,000 people who were brought to welcome her in trucks and buses from allover the province(how many of them were paid is still not clear). In addition there were 20,000 police and paramilitary personnel for her protection. All to no avail. It ended in a bloodbath, remind us once again of the volatile nature of politics in Pakistan.

More trouble lies ahead. Benazir may be the preferred politician of Washington and the EU, but the Supreme Court is considering five separate petitions to reject the Ordnance that pardons corrupt politicians. Were the court to accept these petitions, Ms Bhutto would have to serve time in prison. This would not displease the government. They would pretend to bow before the dictates of justice.

The tragedy of Pakistan is that the People's Party of Bhutto and its rivals offer no real alternatives to the policies currently being pursued. The State Department notion of Bhutto perched on Musharraf's shoulder parrotting pro-Washington homilies was always ridiculous. Now there are doubts as to whether she will even reach the General's shoulder
.

Khawajaa gahreeb nawaaz.., Pakistan - 21 October, 2007

pre-planned attack

i think this attacked is pre-planned. u see none of the member of their party is seriously injured. and i m shocked that every news channel is reporting that BB is perfectly fine and what about others. she planned this in order to get sympathy of the people. if she really care about us then she would never have come here because she knew that her coming will further spread instability in the country, but who cares about pakistan and pakistanis. they all want power and money and by the way why the hell she is coming,what she did with paksitan when she was in power. now BB want to restore democracy in the country, we pakistani are far happier now thanwe were in her time. now the economy is growing,we are progressing but now bitch have come to hurt pakistan .

saira, Pakistan - 21 October, 2007

Butto is the greatest danger facing Pakistan in its history.
She is 100% backed by Zionists and America.

She has pledged her aligance to them promising to dismantle Pakistan's Nuclear weapons.

To hunt "terrorist" translation to MURDER and terrorize fellow Pakistanis.

Most people who supprt her support her because of her father,and they are illiterate

For Gods sake open your eyes!!! because Pakistan is destroyed and in the future will be nothingmore than Inndia's toothless dog

DO WHAT COMES NATURALLY


Come one people.

Wring your hands in despair, put on a brave face, blame external forces, deny it all -----

In short do what you have been doing for long and come up with pat answers to complicated problems.

Dodge, side step, escape do what you like and don't even for a second take into consideration "The Pakistani Mindset" that is destroying the country.

Even the Arabs and other fellow Muslims are now fed up with your shenanigans.
Pakistanis are responsible for what Pakistan has become. Just that and nothing more ironically they want to solve the problems of the Muslim World.




A. V. RAO, United Kingdom - 21 October, 2007

We Dont Need You

After another tenure she will definitely return back to her palaces abroad. She may take more illegal money and if not the already stollen is enough for her generations. But, what about the innocent workers, mediamen and police officials. Stoves in their homes will not lit, wives and parents mourn and children will loose future and career.

She has returned with her own political motives but workers lost lives for her. she should stop plating political games and accusition for the political sake. What she should demand and stand for is a fair and independent investigation, conviction and punishment of the responsible. But again while she is all out for undoing her own convistions in corruption cases how can she think and behave credibly for workers and public at large.

I agree with comments by almost all in this debate.

WE FEEL SORRY FOR THE INNOCENT PEOPLE AND COMMISERATE.

BUT BB MAY NOT BE NEEDED IN THE VERY SENSE OF KEEPING PAKISTAN UNITED AND FREE OF SUCH CARNAGE.

SHE HAS VERY DANGEROUS AGENDAS LIKE BRINGING FOREIGN TROOPS INTO TRIBAL AREAS THAT WOULD BREAK UP PAKISTAN RIGHT ON SEAMS.SHE WANTS TO HAND IN DR A.Q.KHAN.

WITH MANY TRAITORING STATEMENTS THAT SHOWS AND PROVE HER GRAND DESIGNS TO FINISH OFF PAKISTAN, BB IS NOT NEEDED IN PAK POLITICS.

SHE CAN PLAY THE WHOLE DRAMA FOR THE FOREIGN HANDS BENT ON DESTROYING PAKISTAN VERY SKILFULLY.

SHE IS TALKING OF DOING DETRIMENTAL AND ASNTI STATE ACTS THAT EVEN MUSHARRAF OR NAWAZ WON'T GO THAT FAR TO APPEASE ANY OUTSIDE POWER.

THANKS BB. AND THEY HAVE FORGIVEN 1.5 BILLION USD LOOT AS WAIVER FAVOUR. WHAT A JOKE AND THAT MUST BE THE BIGGEST JOKE IN HISTORY.

PAKISTAN CANDO WITHOUT BB AND BE A SAFE AND SECURE COUNTRY.

I AGREE WITH ALMOST ALL THE LETTERS IN THIS DEBATE.

MR GHULAM RASOOL CHAUDHRY, YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THOSE DIVINE SOULS OF JAMIA AND HER ATTITUDES AND FEELINGS ABOUT LAL MASJID TRAGEDY TOUCHES THE HEART.SHE WOULD'NT QUIT HER QUEST OF POWER ON SOME WELL DESIGNED FOREIGN MECHANISM EVEN IF ALL OF 170 MILLION PAKS ARE MADE SACRIFICIAL FOR THAT VERY USELESS, EVEN NATION DESTROYER PERSON.

ALLAH SAVE PAKISTAN AND SAVE PAK LIVES FROM SOME DRAMATIZED POLITICAL ACTS.

We are buried

Benazir another failed politician of pakistan come to pakistan, she knew all about the attacked before time and may be she probably want the sympathy of nation, which is not going to happened, but I felt devastated,deaths of innocent people of pakistan. No regret from political side, which really need a facelift. Pakistan political agenda is all about power and money and has nothing to do with emotions and need of pakistanis. Pakistan will draged again into their internal agendas and will never get out of this mess to move forward. I like musharaff work so far and he has succeeded more that any other politician in the past history of pakistan, But I have one question to ask him, How he feel USA nuclear deal with India, and We are the true ally to USA in war against terrorism. Sould we trust USA who is supporting India more that our own need for nuclear maintenance and keep our program running. I don't think so, Just now they called us the most dangerous country of the world and our nuclear power status will soon be in their agenda to take out and dismentle for ever. India will grow and we will not. I am really want to ask musharaff and rest of the people of pakistan to get united and start our own agenda regardless of how much we need USA and USA is good friend if we know their honesty of higher level. Right now they are friendly but not a friend.
