Say Goodbye to Tyranny Forever, Lovely Pakistanis

By Ghazala Khan • Feb 19th, 2008 • Category: Pakistan Vote'08, Worth A Second Look • 14 Comments

President Musharraf, few weeks ago, said that he would leave when nation would want him to leave. Nation has asked him to leave by rejecting revoltingly, his hand-made Pakistan Muslim League-Quashed. Nation is rejoicing and you can sense it everywhere. Even the sun is smiling and flowers just cannot wait to come out and declare an early spring.

Mr. Musharraf has himself conceded that his acts of 3rd Novemeber were not constitutional, and now nation is looking up at their newly elected leaders to reinstate the judiciary, and free media and start doing some practical measures to show nation that they mean business.

But in this regard nation has to play a very vigilant part. They have done their half part by rejecting the forces of status qou, and they now need to see that their leaders don’t get it wrong, and do what they told them that they would do once in power.

They need to now rally behind their elected leaders and make sure that Mr. President leave the power, and let the civilians rule the country. The nation should also get prepared to ensure the implementation of measures which will translate their dreams into the realities.

Pakistan People’s Party has taken a clear majority in the national assembly, and it is in the position of making government in Sindh and NWFP. It has also got a strong position in Punjab. PML-N has also performed extremely good despite of assaults. PPP is set to gain 110+ seats, PML-N 90+, PML-Q 45+, ANP 25+ in the national assembly.

PPP and PML-N would have to make government, but not before they clearly tell nation what their mutual game plan is.

  1. The people have spoken hopefully now they will hold the candidates accountable and move on towards reconstruction of our land.

  2. Faiz Ahmad Faiz said it best for me:

    At last half-promise of a spring has come
    Some flowers tear open their green cloaks and bloom
    And here and there some garden nooks begin their warbling
    And defy the winter gloom
    Night’s darkness has remained in the same place
    But a few colors of morning have become feather scattering!

  3. Daniel Markey, a Pakistan specialist at Council for Foreign Relations said on CNN today that the game currently being played in Pakistan is between Zardari/PPPP and Musharraf/Military, Inc. to work out some sorts of post-election “arrangements”. Enabling a negotiated alliance between the army and a new, more “progressive” [whatever than means] government. That may be the last card for Musharraf to play.

    Earlier he had also said: “Weak civilian institutions and a history of dysfunctional civil-military relations mean that bringing democracy to Pakistan is less a matter of resuscitation than of reinvention…Even if a civilian regime gained power in Islamabad, it would make critical decisions only after considering the army’s interests and depend on the army to get things done — and so, by extension, Washington…Deservedly or not, Bhutto and Sharif have become polarizing figures in Pakistani politics.”
    Meanwhile, the game goes on – not surprising, albeit alarming for such scenario will mean nothing will change – just names and faces, while the “Great Game” continues??

  4. Its not in the habit of Generals to leave power until Naticam it to streets so they leave the World. Same will the case of Musharraf.

  5. Congratulations on your elections! I am happy to see that your are pleased with the results and hopeful for the future. Good luck to you!

  6. Futurebells said what I actually wanted to right.10000% agreed. Wo dictator he kia jo izzat se jaye.

  7. Congratulations. Pakistanis seem to be proud that Musharraf lost the elections. Like you, we want to know the plans for the future that newly elected officials have for the people and the nation. Specifically we want to know their plans for fighting the terrorists and working with the West, specifically America. God bless you all.

  8. Genuine Pakistan has indeed shouted & shouted quite loudly that it is about time Musharaf step down & also the Army ought say good by to Politics & focuse on professional matters.
    Now there won’t be INSH-ALLAH any more blood shed in Balochistan, Waziristan, Wanna, Swat.
