Nobody UnderstandsBy Ali Yar Khan • Jul 25th, 2012 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look • 11 Comments
If you recall the last couple of months of the Musharraf era, you might remember that tangible uncertainty, gloom, doom and utter despair and hopelessness across the country and in that despair and very tough conditions, people even accepted with open heart, Mr. Ten Percent and his hand-picked dirt.
Now as the last days of this era come closer, that same palpable despair is looming heavily in the air, and there is once again that same gloom prevailing from Karachi to Khyber. Everywhere there are ashes and fire is raging high. Karachi, Balochistan, FATA, and KP are literally out of control. There is no solution in sight for the load shedding and it is the fate of Pakistanis for a long time to come.
There is no economy and everything is running on the aid and donations, and that is why we had no choice but to restore the NATO supplies in order to get going on the morsels. But if you see at the larger canvas and the limelights of the country, you will see that all the institutions are fighting with each other. At different locations, there are different matches; judiciary versus executive, media versus executive, media versus establishment, establishment versus executive, and there is ever present political rivalries and shenanigans.
Pakistan is sliding down the abyss very quickly, but nobody understands.
