2013 is going to be the election year in Pakistan. There is a lot of political hip hop in Pakistan at the moment. Pakistan People’s Party has been in power for a record 5th time in history of Pakistan and have ruled us in last five years. Looking at the inflation, unemployment, war on terror impacts on Pakistanis and especially the energy crisis in Pakistan, PPP has failed miserably in governance. Imran Khan has become a self proclaimed messiah of the doomed nation in the mean time. I have impartially considered him to see if he deserves my vote, and the answer my analysis as a layman brings forward is a big NO. Here are my reasons to say No to Imran Khan’s Change.

  • Imran Khan a rolling stone???

Pakistanis have loved Imran Khan deeply. There were slogans like “Lion of Pakistan, Imran Khan, Imran Khan” in the 1980s which I remember from my childhood. What was the back ground? Did Imran present the country’s budget? No. Was it some meeting with a foreign delegation for future direct investment? No. Was he involved in preparing the country’s defence plan? No. Then what was the source of love and respect he gained? Oh now I remember. He was a sportsman. One of the best ones in his field. He is from a family of cricketers, and he has spent 45 years of his life becoming an expert in Cricket. One fine day he decides to sort out the social, legal, governance, health, poverty, employment and defence related problems of Pakistan and that makes me laugh. A person who has all his life’s experience in Cricket considers himself better for running a country? Too optimistic and kiddish. Is Imran a rolling stone not? Who will gather no moss?

  • Imran Khan’s language-do I want my representative to speak like he does nowadays?

Not at all. With power comes responsibility. This is especially true if you are an elected member of national assembly. A person who ridicules his opponents (well till the time they remain his opponents) with language not worthy of it, how will he treat the people if he ever comes in power? What happened to the decent Imran Khan we knew? Or was the “Finally “I” managed to win the world Cup” speech is just his nature? His language is most definitely my reason of NOT voting for him.

  • Imran Khan’s focus-why is it adjusted on Punjab only?

One major thing that makes me believe Imran Khan is not a good choice for my vote is his extreme focus on Punjab. An unbiased review of the performance of all 4 provinces in last 5 years will prove that Punjab Government has launched a lot many projects for public benefit in comparison to the other 3 provincial governments and the federal government put together. In Punjab the 2010 floods were tackled much better in terms of relief in comparison to Sindh where flood water of 2010 is still standing in some low lying areas. Im sure Punjab can be run much better than this, but in the given circumstances it still happens to be the most well managed province in Pakistan. Why Imran Khan is NOT concerned about any other part of Pakistan? The people dying in target killings daily in Karachi are not Pakistanis? The Hazara shias being killed in Quetta are not Muslims? The people killed by Taliban and other extremists in KPK are not Humans? Why is his concern and criticism only focused on Punjab? Makes me believe Imran has no plan for Pakistan. Whatever he is planning is only for Punjab. This makes him unfit to get my vote as premiere of Pakistan.

  • Imran’s politics is too bookish

Pakistan is a complex socio-political region. We are not simple people to deal with. There are forces like religion, economics and social pressures of very different kinds that shape our daily lives. I find Imran Khan’s solution to our problems very bookish. Who in his right senses would claim he would end the war on terror on his first day in office? Or that he can root out corruption in this culture within 9 days?  This society is no Europe or USA. Imran seems to know very little about the nation he claims to be the savior of.

  • Imran’s followers and their “holier than thou” attitude

Something is wrong with Imran and his followers. I searched for information myself but couldn’t find any information related to how Imran Khan earns. Also, it looks like he never filed a tax return all his cricketing life. Amazing is the fact that Imran still points out others for not paying taxes. What can you think of a person who does not follow a rule, but wants others to follow? I do not want a person with this double standard to be my leader. Imran’s followers have every right to like him, but no right to disrespect other leaders. They follow Imran and use foul language. They go to the level that they declare you a non patriot if you don’t like Imran. Is Imran some kind of “farz”? No. And this attitude is trickling down from his own person to his followers. He considers himself better for no reason and after committing the same mistakes others do, he screams at top of his voice what others are doing. Again. Kiddish. Again, NO!

  • Imran’s zana case, and allegations on SKMH funds misuse

Being a Muslim do I really want a playboy of his youth to be my leader? No. Imran had an illegitimate daughter borne to Sita White. The kid in now in guardian custody of Jemima James, Imran’s ex wife. Though the court in USA has declared her to be Imran’s daughter where Sita White won the parental rights case against Imran, Tyrian Khan’s eyes are enough proof of her being Imran’s daughter. Being a playboy all his life, he has had a lot of illegal relationships out of wedlock with a number of women. The story does not end here. Imran Khan proves himself to be a hypocrite when he points fingers at others for looking at a woman. A recent press conference where he demanded from Nawaz Sharif the PML (N) chief to confirm if he has been loyal with his wife is something disgusting. This s disgusting not because of the cheapness of question, but because of the fact that the cheapest of all playboys is asking the question! Imran, a hypocrite-NO to him yet again!

Recently Khwaja Asif from PMLN has brought forward this issue of funds of zakat from SKMH being invested outside Pakistan. The information comes from the audit report of SKMH, so it cannot be a scam. SKMH is a great initiative by Imran Khan which he achieved by th support of all Pakistan. Doesn’t we deserve an explanation about this funds misuse? No explanation till now. Zakat funds CANNOT be used for investment. I have been donating to SKMH till this issue came to limelight and no one has ever asked me at SKMH collection booths about the money if it is zakat or not. The funds received are thus a mix of zakat and other donations and cannot and must not be misused. Imran can betray the people who stood by him for making this hospital a reality. Imran can take the credit of winning the World Cup alone when it was a squad of 16 who did it. Imran can betray his mother’s name in SKMH scams. Is he trust worthy then? NO.

  • Imran has no plan but allegations and statements only

Whenever I have tried to see Imran Khan’s point of view from a neutral point of view I have always found he has no plan. He knows nothing about how things work in Pakistan. All he can do is bringing forward more and more allegations. This style of work might be good for a Star Plus daily Soap but Pakistan for sure needs better workable plans. He brings forward allegations, claims to have proofs, never brings forward the proofs. So, is it all a hoax? Looks like that other wise he would have shown something-anything which can be considered as a proof in last 15 years. Indecent attitude- A big NO to Imran Khan.

  • Finally, Imran’s Team and his Change

Since we started having general elections in Pakistan, we have seen Kasuris, Tareens. Legharis-What’s new then? Where is the change? Just that we have to vote for the same person under a new party name and that is all? A Kasuri we have had in parliament some five times and now he is being introduced as a CHANGE? Imran Khan really considers Pakistanis to be idiots, isn’t it the case?

So, what do I say to a rolling stone, who uses indecent language, is focused only on one province out of four, offers bookish solutions, with a proven zana case and SKMH funds allegation still carries that “holier than thou” attitude, is all about allegations and no proofs and promises to bring change by bringing back all so familiar faces to the national assembly-A big NO!

Imran Khan does not deserve my Vote. That’s my analysis. I respect everybody’s views. Respect mine as well.

Mohtaram Pakistanio

Asslam-o-alaikum

Hamare haan ki siyasat kuch is tarhan se hamare andar rach bas gayee hai k na chahte hue bhi hamari zindagion ka aik bara hissa siyasat ki

Imran Khan & his politics

nazar hogaya hai, har mor par hamen is baat ka andaza hota hai k ham jis mahol mein reh rahe hain wahan shareef, izzatdar aur sachai k lie jan de dene wale logon k lie jeena mohal hochuka hai. . .

November 22, 2011, khana khane k bad kuch waqt mila to socha k kuch halat-e-hazra k bare mein jan lia jae, isi ni’at se geo ki website kholi to jo pehli khabar parhne ko mili wo Imran Khan saheb k bare mein thi, jis mein likha tha Imran Khan saheb ki siyasi jamat k Lahore mein waqay daftar ko ba’waja adam adaigi tax, seal kardia gaya hai. Sun kar boht afsos hua kio k Imran Khan saheb ka naam aate hi world cup 1992 ki yadain taza hojati hain, meri nazar mein Imran Khan ki shaksiyat aik boht hi izzat ki hamil shakhsiyat ki hamil hai. khas tor par Imran Khan saheb ne Pakistan ki riwaiti siyasat k khilaf jo ailan-e-jang kia aur tamam quaideen ko apne asane zahir karne ko kaha.

Mere zehn mein jo pehla khayal jo aya wo yahi tha k shayad Pakistan Muslim League (N) ne hameshan ki tarhan PTI k wajood se inkar karte hue siyasi rassa kashi ki shurwat kardi hai aur ye waqya ussi silsilay ki aik karri hai, lekin haqeeqat maloom hone par afsos hua k jo shakhsh dusron ko talqeen karta hai k apne asasay zahir karo, tax do, chori na karo, wo khud apni party office k lie tax ada nahin karta ?

Ye sab waqiyat apne samne dekh kar Pakistan ki 18 crore awam ki tarhan shayad mein khamosh beth jata aur bas siyasi dangal ki numaish dekhta rehta lekin jis cheez ne mujhe qalam uthane par majboor kia uska is pure waqiyay se gehra talluq hai . . .

Abhi kuch dair pehle jab mein apne facebook account ko dekh raha tha to Kamran Khan saheb k page ko visit karte waqt meri nazron se aik aisi cheez guzri jisse dekh kar pehle to mujhe khushi hui lekin jab mere zehn se PTI office wala qissa guzra to mein hairan reh gaya . . .meine dekha k Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf k kisi ohdedar ne “Facebook Advert” lagaya hua tha membership k lie…yehan mein aap ko batata chaloon k “Facebook Advert” ki sahoolat hasil karne k lie hamen google walon ko 35$ rozana ki bunyad par ada karne hote hain aur kam se kam muddat aik mahinay ki hoti hai jis ka total kharcha $1050 aur Rs. 92137.5/- hota hai yani k aik “Facebook Advert” chalane k lie Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf aur un k leaders Rs. 3071.25/- per day facebook walon ko de rahe hain sirf logon ko PTI ki taraf raghib karne k lie jo k aik yahoodi lobby hai jab k aise kai adverts PTI k handard aur leaders facebook par chala rahe hain jin par lakhon rupay rozana kharch kie jarahe hain. Dusri taraf almia ye hai k Hukumat-e-Pakistan ko property tax nahin dia ja raha ….aik aisa tax jis se Pakistan k awam k lie falah-o-behboob k kaam kie jane hain . . .

Ye sab haqaiq yaqeenan hamare lie lamha-e-fikria hain aur hamen sochne par majboor karte hain k hamare qol-o-fail mein itna tazad kio hai ? akhir kio ham apni hi bholi bhali awam ko bewaqoof bana kar apne mazmoom azaim ko pura karte hain, wo kon hai jis k isharon par ye sari karwai’yan hoti hain ….wo kon hai jo itna paisa faraham karta hai in logon ko . . .aur agar itna paisa hai to kio ham apni awam ko uska faida nahin dete ? kio bhooka marne dete hain ? kio apni pak sarzameen par mojood pahar jaisa qarz nahin utarte ?

Yaqeenan ye wo chubhte hue sawalat hain jin ka jawab dena koi siyasatdan pasand nahin karega …aur ham awam itne behis hochuke hain k har bar inhi logon ko vote dekar aiwano mein bhej dete hain . . .meri za’tti rae mein Imran Khan saheb baaqi siyasat dano se alag the …lekin ye sab apni aankhon se dekhne k bad meine apni aankhen kholne ka faisal karlia hai aur ye tahayya kia hai k ab ki bar ussi ko vote dekar aiwan mein bhejoonga jis ne haqeeqi mani mein mere sheher aur mere mulk mein rehne wale mazloom Pakistanion k lie kuch kia hoga . . .

Akhir mein,mein sirf apne ham waton se sirf itni guzarish karna chahoonga k khudara apne mulk Pakistan par rehem karen …aise logon ko hargiz vote na den jin k zahir aur batin mein numaya farq hai jo samne kuch kehte hain andaar karte kuch aur hain ….

Friends, below are the snapshots that i received as attachments.

Imran Khan has been unable to prove his worth in national politics since the last 15 years.

Pakistan tehreek-e-InsafImran Khan is well known for his work in the development sector. He is also a national sports hero and hopes to bring reforms that will change the status quo and bring progress and prosperity in Pakistan by doing away with the corrupt and feudal controlled system.

Khan leads a pro-democracy center-right political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf or “Pakistan’s Movement for Justice”  – justice, which is said to be the main agenda for reform. He offers an ideology which is very similar to the center-left political parties, but he appears more interested in educated professionals, who are self-made and renowned international figures in their respective fields (like he was).

 

Good intentions but misguided actions

Khan would have individuals running the country as a non-profit charity organisation, where well known personalities with sound financial backgrounds work as volunteers. PTI also offers patriotism and aims to improve the national image with ‘made in Pakistan’ achievements, with the final vision of bringing people of this nation and those in the First World on a par.

There is no doubt his intentions for Pakistan’s success are pure, but so far he has not been able to prove his worth in national politics. And it has been 15 years already. The only exception is when he won a National Assembly seat from his hometown in elections during General Musharraf’s tenure. Khan let go of the seat after five years in protest against the president’s office and the uniform. After being influenced by a religious party he boycotted the contest in 2008, as he felt a dictator would not be able to bring democracy under his rule. But this did not stop him form fielding candidates in by-elections throughout Punjab, held under the government that was elected during the reign of a Musharraf. Despite that, he continues to highlight the similarities between a dictator and the democratic president of today.

Most Pakistanis who support him are young or female. That is primarily because he is the most good looking male politician around, and a successful cricketer who made it to the Hall of Fame with his personal achievements. Pakistan’s population and demographics are in his favour, if we categorise with numbers, then in all fairness his following should be well above 2/3rd of the total population of Pakistan.

Khan also claims he has never voted for elections in his life, except for his own seat in 2002 as he had always harboured doubts about the electoral process in the country.

Imran Khan’s stand against the MQM

What caught my attention was that Khan continued to reiterate that he does not see an alliance with MQM even though his movement is following the same goals. He believes that MQM is a ‘terrorist organisation’  and perhaps, he feels, not up to his level of politics.

In 2009, when Khan had gone through a minor medical procedure at his hospital, I remember MQM Punjab’s senior members and the coordination committee members had paid a visit to Khan to inquire about his health. He remains upset with the MQM because they had filed a disqualification reference against him when he was an assembly member. This was after Khan had vowed to have an MQM leader arrested in the UK within three months, extradited to Pakistan and tried for charges.

Calling a national political party that holds the mandate of millions ‘terrorists’, is unjustified. Would his statement of calling MQM ‘deshatgard‘ mean he rejects the voters of MQM as thugs and militants, who are from the middle class and working to provide Pakistan 68 per cent revenue and make up to 25 per cent of the GDP but only because the majority in Karachi votes for the MQM.

Hypocritical arguments

I find it very strange that Khan is ready to pursue peace talks with the Taliban, who are known to the world as terrorists, but is not willing to meet the MQM leaders from a center-left progressive political movement similar to his own. He justifies this by saying that the US too is willing to negotiate with the Taliban, without realising that the Afghan Taliban are fighting foreigners and the Pakistani Taliban are killing their own people.
