The BLACK 31st!

Have you ever heard of any Soldier who appeared in ‘Courts’ and that too more than one time? Or let me put this question in simple words that in your ‘general knowledge’ of the world is there any country where the Soldier, the one who not only guarded and defended his Motherland but also lead its Army as a Chief, being charged with ‘Treason’? If not heard and you are also a ‘Pakistani’, either fundamentalist, conservative, moderate or liberal, and you grow up listening to this super hit national song ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’ because no matter what sect or ethnic group you belong to but you are a true patriotic ‘Pakistani’, then I must say you and your ‘future’ generations have no right to call themselves a Pakistani! Yes! the pre-requisite to be called ‘Pakka Pakistani’ is that you should know that you belong to a nation where Soldiers are ‘Traitors’ and ‘Looters’ or ‘Lotas’ either way you pronounce are heroes!

It was 31st March 2014, another quiet normal Sunny day. Not only was the weather warm outside but also of the ‘Courtroom’ of ‘Special Court’ specially setup for this ‘Treason’ case and later of media who got ‘new’ topic as hotcake. The General who lead the Pakistan Army from the front as he said in one interview with ARY:

“I have always led from the front even as an army commander and its chief during war and peace.”

He appeared before the court respecting the supremacy of law despite the fact that the case was vindictively politicized with no truth. What Treason? I will explain in his very own words by citing quotes from his statement that he made before ‘Special Court’ after ‘indictment’ when a ‘charge sheet’ was read before him! 5 charges…can you imagine? But they were…and he pleaded ‘Not Guilty’ on each of them! And he was formally ‘INDICTED’ in ‘Article 6’ case for declaring emergency on 3rd November 2007. He said:

“I have consulted than prime minister and other stakeholders before taking any step and never abrogated the law and constitution.”

About Treason he said:

“I am being called a traitor, I have been chief of army staff for nine years and I have served Pakistan army for 45 years. I have fought two wars and it is ‘treason’?”

Who are the traitors, he defined in these words:

“I am not a traitor.For me traitors are those: Who loot public money and empty the treasury. To me a person who sells secrets of the country to the enemy is traitor and traitor is that person who laid down his arms before enemy”

Categorizing the traitors he further explained their type:

“To me there is another category of traitors that creates the hurdles in the ways of socio economic progress and same like situation was created in 2007. We were going towards the sky but steps taken by some personalities blocked the way of progress”

Honouring the court he said:

“I honour this court and prosecution, I strongly believe in rule of law. I don’t have ego problems, and I have appeared in court 16 times in this year in Karachi, Islamabad and Rawalpindi”

About Justice he said:

“I would like to ask where is the justice for me in the Islamic republic of Pakistan. I have only given to this country and not taken anything. I say on oath of my mother and children before the court that I have not taken even a single penny of the country”

He also mentioned the developments in his era (1999-2008) in all sectors.

For this Nation whose memory is short enough to forget the services of the soldier for his Motherland, there is still time to understand the true facts before it’s too late to recover. Don’t get into the foolish details of ‘Amriyat’ and ‘Jamhuriat’ which are just to confuse your minds with distorted facts.  As Pakistan should always be top priority in your lives. Rightly said by Gen. (R) Pervez Musharraf in one of the address recently about Constitution and Pakistan:

“What’s more important, the constitution or the country? If as the head of the state I feel something is against the interest of my country, I’ll take action and it should not be seen with suspicion.”

Lastly, Please accept my apology of being labeling you as ‘Non-Pakistani’ as I should know that very soon this ‘fact’ will be printed in your kids syllabus either ‘Pakistani’, ‘Oxford’ or ‘Cambridge’, because it is a world known fact now that in Pakistan, its Chief of Army Staff, Gen. (R) Pervez Musharraf who served his motherland for more than 40 years is framed with charges of ‘Treason’. He whose ‘war skills’ in ‘Kargil’ will be taught in Armed forces institutions worldwide decades later (and you will see! It will!!!) as the best strategist, brave and bold General he was!
