Call him what u may a fundamentalist, Taliban Khan, U-turn master, Turncoat leader, the Devil incarnate but Mr. Khan never stops to amaze them. He may not be a redeemer but he surely has waken up a terror-stricken nation from a deep slumber of dosed anesthesia.
Who knew that people in this divided society be it class, creed or sect will rally behind a man who once wooed the ladies in the west and elsewhere. There surely must be some coercive, mean, superficial, lustful mechanism behind this power hungry ” pied piper”, they so grimacing tell us, yet we find the man so humbly gone to perform the most venerated of religious duties on the 27th of Ramazan.
What’s most fascinating about this rising is the defacing of the label given to us by the west of a stagnant, failing nation, which bars civil liberties keeps their women chained and cuffed metaphorically speaking, and yes the most trumpeted decree of them all of the jihadi Islamist taking over the country and blowing up the nearby infidels.
Yet we see the bulging youth of Pakistan striving for reform, peace justice and equality, chanting change day after day attending corner meeting and calls for sit in’s to redo the dream of a homeland acquired by the leaders of the independence struggle.
This surely does not serve the purpose for the forces hell-bent on destroying the moral, ethical and economic fiber of this nation so what we do next. Invoke the Mullah for heaven’s sake, ask for a fatwa, libel scandalize the one person standing against the status quo of self-absorbed, conceited, pompous, egotistical, self-serving stuck –ups who will parade up and down on the wishes of their whimsical fancies.
They seem to forget that this ploy of theirs was used up once in the past but cannot work in the present century where the people are not standing for charisma or speeches at the altar. It’s the seed of awareness well spread, grown year after year of doted conceits, lies and broken promises every five years by the very regime who so sullenly sang the song of the masses. Forgotten! The moment they tasted power, building fortresses, mansions, villas, castles, chateau, and palaces for their own. Leaving the rest to tire 24/7 hardly meeting both ends meet breathing CO2 and drinking polluted contamination, sulking and praying for a Savior.
The Joke is you, Sir! because this nation is neither looking for a saint nor a sinner but the one who has set goals and achieved them be it sports “The World Cup “or serving humanity “Shaukat Khanum Cancer hospital”, Namal university” or health / police reforms in KPK, He served you the notice over corruption and now time is up! too much water has passed under the bridge stop sulking and let the evolution begin.
