There was deep silence in the class, everyone was looking at each other and trying to understand what the teacher was saying. The teacher must have realized the condition of the boys, so his voice echoed again. “Yes Naomi is the beauty of our class”. This time, when the questioning eyes of the majority rose towards the teacher, he spoke. “If Naomi and a few unworthy boys like her are not in our class, how can we value the class-worthy boys?”
Ustad ji’s words might never have been understood if he had not observed civil politics. Imran Khan’s style of politics made the politicians of the country appreciated. Before Khan Sahib, only politicians who took gifts, watches, cars, cufflinks from Tosha Khana were bad, but Imran Khan, being the architect of Madinah state, not only took gifts from Tosha Khana but also went one step further. Also sold them. (Perhaps to meet his own expenses, as he often said that the Prime Minister’s salary did not cover his expenses). And then like Bilawal Bhutto (trembling legs, instead of admitting a mistake, he insisted that this is the next stage from trembling legs) he insisted that I should sell or keep my watch. Although our elders are far away, there is an example of Manwar Hasan in the same country, who also deposited the gifts received by his daughter on the wedding in the treasury of Jamaat-e-Islami.
Well, we are talking about the beauty of politics. Before Imran Khan, if a politician was arrested, the government used to arrest him automatically, or after little resistance. The public would vilify him as a thief and a pushover, then after some time he would use his influence to get bail and come out with a sign of victory. The public will say that the criminals are making a sign of victory.
But Khan Sahib introduced a new tradition that if the police come to arrest, gather the lovers outside the house. Torture the police without thinking that they are also someone’s children, they also have children, they are also waiting at home, martyr the state officials, make the earth laugh and then go to court saying that. Declare that I thought I was on bail (well done on your understanding). Get the fastest justice from the 130th ranked court system by appearing in court with an army destroying state property. All this practice raised the stature of other politicians in serious circles that they would at least get arrested without bloodshed.
Before Imran Khan, the state institutions were criticized in veiled words, yet the critics were considered bad, Khan crossed all boundaries and directly started badmouthing the former army chief. Perhaps for the first time in the country’s history, an army chief has to issue clarifications about himself after his retirement. Today, most of the politicians are having fun thanks to Khan Sahib. Enemies of Pakistan Army must be celebrating, they used to spend money to criticize the army, today that work is being done for free.
Undoubtedly, Khan Sahib Mohsin is also a politician. Khan Sahib resigned from the National Assembly, but nothing was achieved. Then these poor people ran around to withdraw their resignations, but nothing was achieved. After this joke, no politician, no political party will try to do such stupidity in future.
Khan Sahib sacrificed his two provincial governments in spite of persuading the government to force elections, but nothing was achieved. Even more surely the learned would have learned that nothing is gained even by such heavy sacrifices, that is, Sahagan can drink whatever he wants.
However, a lot of water has flowed under the bridges. The situation of the dear country requires that we stop talking about ‘we are not you’ or ‘you are not’, we should leave new experiences, we should stop trying to humiliate each other, we should defeat inflation together. People dying in flour lines should be saved. Pakistanis killing themselves and their children at the hands of inflation should be stopped by giving dignified employment.
Time has come for our leaders to understand. If you don’t understand now, you will never understand because the foreign exchange reserves are less than four billion dollars and experts say that we need four decimal one billion dollars only for cotton. The IMF, despite fulfilling all the conditions, is not ready to lend us despite dropping inflationary bombs on the people. If our leaders still do not understand, then the time is not far when those who enjoy the protocol, our leaders will be found standing on signals.
