Is corruption by the armed forces of Pakistan not corruption? Or is corruption only that done by civilians? Since you profess to be a crusader against corruption, and since this was the main plank on which you won the parliamentary elections of 2018 and came to power, surely you should also speak out against corruption by the Pakistan armed forces. Or are you scared to speak of this because then you may meet the fate of the late lamented Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto ?
2. In your speech you called the opposition leaders as ‘chor’ and ‘daaku’. But what about those chors and daakus earlier belonging to other parties but to whom you gave tickets of your own party, the PTI, in the parliamentary elections of 2018, as they were regarded ‘electable’ ? Have these crooked sugar barons and other shady businessmen to whom you gave PTI tickets, and who later became MPs, suddenly become ‘doodh ka dhula‘ overnight?
I am reminded of these verses in the poem ‘Maatam-e-Azaadi’ by the Urdu poet Josh Malihabadi :
Bartaania ke khaas ghulaamaan-e-khanazaad
dete thay lathiyon se jo hubba-e-watan ki daad
aik-aik zarb jinki hai ab tak saron ko yaad woh I.C.S. ab bhi hain khushbakhto-bamurad
shaitaan aik raat mein insaan ban gaye jitney namak-haram thay, kaptaan ban gaye
3. Prices of essential commodities like foodstuffs and fuel have skyrocketed in Pakistan, but you ignored all this in your speech. What have you done to end this nightmare for the common man? Or will you keep blaming the previous governments?
4. You spoke of the glory of Islam, Allah, the Prophet and Madina ki Riyasat in the beginning of your speech, but how will this solve the massive problems of unemployment, malnourishment, and lack of proper healthcare and good education for the masses in Pakistan ? By shouting ‘ La ilaha il Allah ’ from the rooftops?
5. There was only fulmination by you about the corruption of the opposition parties, but why did you not also announce in your speech that you will abolish the inhuman laws against the Ahmadis, and the blasphemy law which is used to persecute minorities? ( see my article ‘Barbaric persecution of Ahmadis in Pakistan’ published in rabwah.net ). Why did you give a PTI ticket to that rascal Amir Liaquat, whose TV program resulted in the killings of several Ahmadis.
Mr Prime Minister, what was important in your speech was not so much what you said, but what you cunningly left unsaid, thinking yourself to be oversmart. You remind me of the character The Artful Dodger in Dicken’s novel Oliver Twist, or the con artist Soapy Smith.
