Comments on: Who really is in control of Pakistan ? http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2008/08/05/who-really-is-in-control-of-pakistan/ Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Sameer Khan http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2008/08/05/who-really-is-in-control-of-pakistan/comment-page-1/#comment-13162 Sat, 21 Feb 2009 10:35:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/pakistan/2008/08/05/who-really-is-in-control-of-pakistan/#comment-13162 Pakistan as a country is suffering because its foundation is wrong. History has proved, again and again that any country whose foundation stole was laid in the name of religion always gets screwed up. Pakistan should get over Islam, and look for developing its people than just wait for alms from US or China.

As far as India goes, its’ none of Pakistanis’ business what happens in India. Again if you want to discuss India, then let’s talk facts. There are some anti establishment movements in India BUT, those are happening in just 2% of the total area. Unlike unstable countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan where around 50% to 80% of the total area is under threat. Even developed countries like USA, UK and China (I dare to call it develop country) have problems in some of their areas.

And again, as I mentioned, Pakistan should move beyound India. As now we cannot and should not draw comparisons with India. Its’ like comparing Mexico with USA. India is one of the fastest developing countries in the world. While Pakistan still lives like mendicant.

The Indian bureaucracy and civil service is almost in tatters, a sure recipie for disaster. HIV is on the rise, there are massive problems ahead and the road is not easy, while there is acute lack of will on the part of politicians who turn out to be one of the most corrupt in the world.

UP and Bihar have been governed or are governed by politicians associated with so called low caste people.
The insurgency in Mizoram was dealth with politically, and now Mizoram is peaceful and sends its representatives to Delhi. India like China is a country in economic and social transition. The economy will grow by 7-10% in the medium term this gives young people hope for a better life. India is an important country for the world and has a great historical mission.

Pakistan also has a caste system: muslim and non-muslim. Reformist groups such as Ahmedis and Bahais are persecuted for their reformist beliefs. Evidently, the Pakistani state is enchanted by 7th century tribal laws from the dessert. I hope they dont sink to the depths of Iran where teenage girls are hanged by mysogenist judges from cranes in public executions. Such barbarism leads to nation disintegration and contempt from the international community.

Just run a small search in Google and you will find the fact that Pakistan Army is contributing highest numbers of troops in peacekeeping operations around the whole world at this time. This speaks of the confidence the international community and UNO has in the Pakistan Army and its professional combat/peacekeeping capabilities.
A welll trained and combat group of the caliber of Pakistan Army will offer no easy victory to any enemy seeking misadventure. Be it the millitants, the Indians or who ever the hell.

India is already Balkanizing. The dozen separatist movements need not to be mentioned, every one in the world know about them. Low caste Hindu dalits are oppreseed in India, the elite Hindus are what India stands for. Australian missionaries were burned alive, Golden te,mple of sikhs was ruined by Indian Army, Gujrat muslims were massacred, crimes against christians. How dare you lecture what Pakistan should do. At least we Pakistan have a dignity here, I wonder what miserable lives the masses in India belonging to Dalit caste would be living in India. India is rather doomed, Kashmir is already in flames between hindus and muslims. Indian govt is playing a cat and mouse game, steal Tom’s land and give it to Harry.
India should reform its caste systems and drop the oppression of the minorities. The plight of dalits in India, which are almost 25% of the population is an open reality.

You cannot unite a country by hatred and religious bigotry. The hate does not stop with the India, you first hate and despise the Bengalis, you commit mass rape and murder. The Begalis then leave Pakistan.
You then feel superior to the Baluchis and they leave Pakistan.

I would prefer that Pakistanis reform their society and reject ideas from the 7th century, this would prevent its disintegration.

I am a young Pakistani and by no means ‘uneducated’. There are decent jobs and dignified living conditions here.

I only told you to shut up. I did not threaten you. If you bark nonsense against Pakistan, I have every right to talk back. Internet is a information superhighway. No one has the right to be the judge and the jury himself and decide what should be said, written or read on the web.
As for you, in many of your comments you have written of disintegration of Pkaistan. Is that not a form of threat?
First, act as a civilized person, before you preach good manners to others.

Your claim that Pakistan Army is an incapable force?
Ok, lets do a quick comparison, a Dutch Army UN peacekeeping battallion was guarding the UN Safe area in Srebrenica in the Bosnian war(1995). The Serbs commanded by Gen Ratko Mladic were advancing, the Dutch peacekeepers turned out to be cowards, they simply retreated accepting gifts. The UN commander was filmed drinking beer with International war criminals. The result, massacre of 8000 muslim refugees in Srebrenica in the heart of Europe.
On the other hand, Pakisatni peacekeepers were stationed in Somalia in 1993. They were tasked with the dangerous mission of inspecting weapons dumps of Somali warlord Farah Aideed. While performing the mission in a dangerous territory, the millitants attacked and 24 peacekeepers laid down their lives. Similarly, when a US special operations unit launched a strike to hit a millitant high command meeting in Mogadishu, it went wrong. It took the professionalism and bravery of joint Pak-Malaysian-US rescue mission to evac the wounded. Professionalism speaks for itself.
After this, your point becomes invalid as it shows the character of Pakistan Army. Over the years all Pakistani armed forces have shown what they are capable of.
