Monitoring Desk: The latest maneuverability by seasoned Pakistani politicians who are portrayed as incompetent, corrupt, useless, and illiterate, having no skills and expertise to run the country have again defeated the powerful establishment of Pakistan as the Army itself confessed that it decided in February 2021 to come out of politics, resulting collapse of the allegedly military-backed government of former prime minister Imran Khan.
According to an article titled ‘Is “70-year reboot” challenging the supremacy of certain groups in Pakistan?’ written by Agha Iqrar Haroon in daily Pakistan Today, the writer says that the powerful establishment always considers the 1973 Constitution as trash and a piece of paper that can anytime throw into a dustbin the lesson learned out of Bajwa-Imran contra is that armless politicians proved themselves stronger than the Establishment of Pakistan which had “laser focus” projects against politicians. Political engineers in uniform tried their best to ruin the careers of politicians but politicians always found some ways to defeat engineers in uniforms.
The writer says that Amir al-Mu’minin Ziaul Haq was running the Emirate of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan himself had already destroyed the Pakistan people’s Party (PPP) whose founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto had already been hanged to death in Rawalpindi jail but even after 45 years of his hanging, thousands of followers of Bhutto visit every year his grave where he was buried at midnight in 1979 by men in uniform under strict security and nobody within his family was allowed to see his face.
“Party-less general elections of Ziaul Haq gave birth to a new cadre of politicians and one of them is Mian Nawaz Sharif. I reported his rise with the help of Gen Hameed Gull and Gen Ziaul Haq and I also reported his arrest by the Chief Executive of Pakistan Gen Musharraf and termination of government twice. He rose again as Prime Minister and then he became a victim of “project Imran Khan” but I again reported coming back of his party into power this April. He was compelled to leave his country by Musharraf with a commitment that he would not come back for the next 10 years. Mian Nawaz Sharif faced the brunt of many military generals but he kept surviving in politics and neither iron-fisted Musharaf nor Shukria Raheel Sharif could abolish his political career. Even Bajwa Doctrine got failed and the so-called illiterate, corrupt, and incompetent politician reclaimed his place within the system”, writes Agha Iqrar Haroon.
He claims that the military has decided to stay away from the political Arena but it is very difficult to hand over Empire so easily to someone you consider incompetent, useless, corrupt, and illiterate. He is of the view that the decision to stay away from political power by the military can be a tactical retreat but not a firm decision.
