Imran Khan’s call for 30th November sit-in at D-Chowk
Gujrat Rally of Pakistan Tehreek Insaf was a part of the struggle which is set in to liberate the masses of Pakistan from the servitude of the dynastic rule of Sharifs. At this rally Imran Khan appealed to the nation to join him at sit-in at D-Chowk in Islamabad on 30th November 2014 to decide their future. It’s an opportunity for Pakistani people to come out of their homes and head for Islamabad to join a struggle which is geared for, to unfetter the masses from year’s long-drawn-out bondage of Sharifs, Bhuttos and Maulanas. It’s an opportunity to mount pressure on status quo forces, make an all-over effort to crumble down the dynastic system and make a new Pakistan.
It’s an opportunity to avail of the leadership of Imran Khan who’s the last hope of this wretched nation. Pakistani people should think whether they want to be enslaved and treated as animals or live their lives free as respected people. It’s a battle between good and evil and will be decided at D-Chowk and across the whole country.
It’s now up to the Pakistani people how they respond to the call of Imran Khan and to firmly decide what they want. Such right set of circumstances as prevailing in the country nowadays after the launching of Azadi March, hardly ever knock the door. They should follow their leader who’s resolute, indefatigable and unswerving. For the rights of common people and making Pakistan similar to as dreamt by Quaid-e-Azam, Imran Khan has put his political career at stake.
A sea of people swarming into the streets of Islamabad on 30th November is going to put the final nail in the coffin of present Government which has been an unnecessary burden on the Pakistani people since May 2013. Whatever PML-N Government did to hinder the swarming of masses into Islamabad, it won’t be able to stand out the wrath of millions of poverty-stricken people. It will be a do-or-die situation for both this corrupt government and change-wanted masses. The looming danger of surging streets of Islamabad with angered-crowds has unnerved the government and it has initiated some people-friendly policies to ease off their wrath and even to dissuade them from joining the sit-in. But it appears to be a futile attempt by the government and it would rather leave it in quandary.
As I have already discussed in my previous blogs that masses have absolute power but they usually lack honest leadership and guidance. Moreover, they are generally disorganized, divided and suppressed by the political elites to an extent where they find it difficult to stand out against them. History tells us about how oppressed and downtrodden the people of America, France, China and Iran were before the revolutions that took place in these countries.
It was the masses who took to the streets and guided by their leaders to achieve their ultimate goal of freedom and deliverance from oppressive rule. America had been a British Colony for years but when it became unbearable for the Americans to pay unlawful and excessive taxes, they revolted and successfully drove out the British and formed a union of the thirteen colonies which eventually became the United States of America. It was the absolute power of the masses that drove out the British from America.
The French Revolution of 1789 is one of the great events of human history. It deeply affected people’s ideas and conduct for many generations. At the time of revolution the total population of France was about 25 million. Out of this population only two million were from the army, church, nobility and bourgeois. This small group of people ruled over the remaining 23 million masses ruthlessly. The French people were downtrodden and burdened with many and heavy taxes.
The French King was above the law like Sharif brothers. The most oppressed segment of the society were the pheasants who were neither sufficiently united nor educated to bring about a revolution themselves, but the importance of their grievances was that they were ready to become the allies of other discontented classes. The writings of great French thinkers such as Voltaire, Rousseau and Montesquieu had a deep impact on the French Revolution. Their writings prepared the masses mentally for change.
The cruel rule of the King became insufferable and eventually people couldn’t resist the burden furthermore and took to the streets of Paris. As usual the King resorted to force to save his kingship but on the contrary the use of force strengthened the resolve and determination of the people who swarmed the streets and finally apprehended the King and Queen. People had suffered extremely under their oppressive rule and guillotined both publicly.
China was invaded by the British, Russians and Japanese in different times for its rich mineral resources. British made Chinese people addicted to opium for many years and looted their resources. After Second World War, the United States aided and supported Chiang Kai-Shek of Kuomintang. Kuomintang was a nationalist party founded in China under Sun Yat-sen in 1912, and led by Chiang Kai-shek from 1925.
It held power from 1928 until the Communist Party took power in October 1949, and it subsequently formed the central administration of Taiwan. Chinese Communist Party was established in 1921. Against the oppressive rule of Chiang Kai-Shek, and to bring about a Marxist Revolution in China, Mao Zedong led the Chinese people and with their power overthrown the Government of Kuomintang and proclaimed People’s Republic in October 1949.
Similarly Shah of Iran was an agent of America and people were helpless under his tyrannical rule. America used to dictate to him and he’s proved to be the puppet of the US in the region. When his oppressive rule became unbearable for the masses, they started resistance in the leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini. Shah used force excessively against the revolutionaries but couldn’t succeed in suppressing the resistance of common people.
In January 1979 followers of Ayatollah Khomeini led a successful revolution that toppled the tyrannical rule of Shah. Ayatollah Khomeini was in exile in France and in the following month he returned to Iran and began to take control of the new government. In April, after a popular referendum, he declared the establishment of an Islamic republic. Actually that was the power of the masses and guidance and leadership of Ayatollah Khomeini which crumbled down the cruel government of Shah and gave people their due rights.
It’s 21st century but still the people of Pakistan face issues similar to ones mentioned above. Pakistan couldn’t become a Pakistan which dreamt by Quaid-e-Azam. It is run by two dynastic families – Sharifs and Zardaris – in the name of so-called democracy. Its people are poverty-stricken, undernourished, mostly illiterate, diseased, jobless, disrespected across the world and slaves of Waderas though it’s not the eighteen or nineteen century. They have absolute power but they don’t know how to use it to change their lives and get rid of corrupt political system. If they have to live respectfully in Pakistan as well abroad, they will have to come out of their homes on 30th November and get to Islamabad to support Imran Khan.
Besides Islamabad, the battle of their destinies will be fought across the entire country in the leadership of Imran Khan. They have aroused by the sit-ins and massive rallies of PTI. Imran Khan has the ability and all the characteristics of a great leader like Mao Zedong and George Washington to lead his people and liberate them from the oppressive and cruel rule of Sharifs, Mullas and Waderas. The country has been hijacked by these thugs and uses it for their ulterior motives. Approximately 98 per cent people of Pakistan have been under their oppressive rule for quite a long time.
Allah has given a golden opportunity to the people of Pakistan to unfetter themselves from the slavery of corrupt rulers otherwise their next generations will be slaved as well. A well-determined and patriotic leader is there on container waiting for them at D-Chowk in Islamabad to come and join the struggle against this corrupt and cruel system. He must be supported for the cause of Naya Pakistan in which people have rights, respect, job opportunities, rule of law and peace. Let’s come to support Imran Khan in his crusade against Zardaris, Sharifs and Maulanas who have ravaged the lives of the people of Pakistan in the name of democracy.
