Karachi burnsWhile the anti-Islam (pro "enlightened moderate") puppet regime of Musharraf fiddles.
The Chief Justice of Pakistan (that the puppet Musharraf dismissed) was to address the High Court Bar in Karachi. A major rally was planned by the opposition parties to welcome the Chief Justice, Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry.
Last week, the Chief Justice addressed a large rally in Lahore that was without any incident. The huge size of that rally, however, shook the puppet regime of Busharraf, and they decided that a similar rally would not be allowed to take place in Karachi.
The Karachi rally was blocked by the puppet regime's hired goons from the semi-fascist "political party" MQM - whose leader gives orders from London. The puppet regime's hired goons opened fire (using automatic, and semi-automatic weapons) on opposition rallies all over Karachi - resulting in over 30 dead, and hundreds injured. This is what democracy, American puppet style, looks like.
However: it is interesting to note that just a few weeks back the same semi-fascist party, MQM, held a rally against Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa. But, at that time, the liberals remained quiet, thinking that MQM was on their side. Now that Busharraf's attack dogs have targeted everyone: liberals, religious groups, lawyers - one would think the liberal elite would come to their senses. But, if one is to read recent articles by the liberal elite commentators, they still don't seem to have learnt their lesson, and think that if they just replaced one "enlightened moderate" with another (maybe Benazir Bhutto - an American puppet in waiting) everything will be OK.
Fact is, if Pakistan, indeed any country in the region is to have any real independence - it has to first, and foremost, become independent of American style "roshan khiyalism" (enlightened thinking)- that might be better termed zalim khiyalism (oppressive/obscure thinking). And its so-called "leadership" needs to stop looking to the American State Department for stamps of approval.
