How to Bridge the ChasmBy Farid Masood • Dec 31st, 2007 • Category: Politics • 7 Comments
Assassination of Ms Bhutto was a brutal act of terrorizing the electoral process and for the nation as well. Involved in her death may be not only within Pakistan. But it is to sure that PPP is going to remember the current regime and the ex-ruling part PML(Q) as two of the assassinator till the truth is revealed (if happens, nation have doubts). If free and fair elections are conducted it is to sure that the shock wave generated by the death of Ms Bhutto PPP with PML(N) shall clean sweep the seats all over the Pakistan and there will be no standing of PML(Q) any where. This is what Mr Bilawal Bhutto Zardari termed as Democratic Revenge.
If PPP along with PML(N) forms the government the following may be going to be happened:
1. Re-instatement of Judiciary on the state of 20th July 2007.
2. National Accountability to curb many things.
3. Reversal of wrong doings with the rule of law.
4. Stoppage of army actions within Pakistan and if COAS do not agree then sending him back home.
5. Limit the role of ‘Somebody’ in politics.
Now time to act accordingly is being wasted by the authorities. The President need to keep hearing from his surroundings but acting in the greater interest of the nation. He is the only person to come forward the bridge the chasm created between the PPP and the current regime by the death of Ms Bhutto. Nations approach is already against the current setup. Therefore, coming forward and offering boldly to PPP that government will leave no stone unturned to investigate her assassination in cooperation with Pakistan Peoples Party.
Government should also announce bravely that whoever is involved in this killing of Ms Bhutto and innocent people will be hanged to death publicly. Create a neutral commission of inquiry comprissing of the judges headed by Mr Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday Government shall not delay elections, and where elections cannot be held due to lack of material or due to law and order situation prevents, elections shall only be delayed there along with surety of transparent election.
This transparency needs not to be vetted by M/s Transparency International as its internal matter of Pakistan. Nation should speak itself of transparency of the election. This will prevent post election agitation, which we cannot bear in such conditions, as already the loss done to this country is higher.
