Fawad Chaudhry and other Army apologists in PPP

Nawab Akbar khan Bugti Shaheed’s brutal murder in an Army action is one of the most significant incident in the history of Balochistan, and is part of series of killings by the military establishment for their own designs putting federation at stake.

His brutal murder was condemned by almost all the political parties, Human rights organizations across the country.

Today his 6th death anniversary was commemorated all over the world by Baloch fraternity. The day was marked with a shutter down and wheel jam Strike call in Balochistan by JWP, BRP and supported by PML-N, Jamat Islami and other parties including PPP Balochistan.

Pakistan Peoples Party is target of hostile judiciary and opinionated electronic and print media. All it needs is a competent media team to defend its twists and turns, compromised stances on various issues and to face self righteous anchor persons and journalists on daily basis.

For this whole purpose, one of the fresh recruit is Fawad Chaudhry, who can speak tirelessly on constitutional issues, judiciary as well as respnd to fellow politicians from other parties. He did this for years on behalf of General Musharraf and after leaving him, he joined PPP ranks and elevated to the role of Prime Minister adviser.

He is doing his ob well but cant get rid of his love for the former dictator and the person accused of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination as well as ordering Nawab Akbar bugti’s murder. Here’s his tweet on PML-N observing “Bugti Day”.

Fawad Hussain @fawadchaudhry

@kdastgirkhan only purpose of Bugti day of PMLN is to humiliate Pak Army soon u ll also celebrate Gen Arora day....

It show how he shows his outrage against PML-N, interestingly he is unaware that PPP, the party ( or the PM he represent belongs to PPP) he represents too supported the call.

Seems, fawad chaudhry did not get rid of the memories of his first love.

Shramila Farooqi too likes wardi wallas

On the other hand, advisor to Chief minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah, Miss Sharmila Farooqi hold baloch themselves responsible for the miseries they are suffering by the hands of Pakistan Military establishment since its forced annexation in 1948.

When Balochistan was in news for US Congressional hearings and Pakistan media and twitterati was deranged by the develoments and attention to the Balochistan issue, Sharmila had a tweet exchange with Baloch twitter activists when she was defending Pakistan Army and its premier intelligence agency’s brutalities, she wished, “If she had two sons, she will send one to the Army and the other to ISI”.

Faisal Raza Abidi’s Qaseed Khwan-e-Pakistan Army

Faisal Raza Abidi is one of the most outspoken and bold voice against islamifascist Judiciary and terrorists organizations who have joined hands against minorities and have their hands soaked i the blood of innocent Shias all over Pakistan from Gilgit Baltistan to Kurram and Bolan.

But it seems, he too is busy in building the image of Pakistan Army in his TV talk show appearances.

“Poori duniya hamari Afwaaj ki tazleel me laggi he!! Koi drone attack Afghanistan me taliban me kyo nahi hota”

(The whole world is busy humiliating our Armies, Why not Drone attacks happened on Taliban in Afghanistan)

As a friend comments, ” Abidi sb “Shia genocide aur Judiciary ke slogans ley kar pak Army ki rehabiliation ki jang lad rahey hein”

Look around and you will find many more doing the same, now call it survival instinct as an apologist tries to call it or look at it with the new narrative gaining roots in PPP.

Its on the readers…

  • being army apologist is the price zardari’s ppp has paid to stay in power,the fact alone is sufficient to distinguish it from ZAB’s ppp

  • I pray God blesses sharmila with two sons. so we watch her sending one to army and the other to ISI. #OhPlease

  • Guys, it is unfortunate that you choose to catch words of what people say! The Pakistan Army is reaping the fruits of what it sowed over years in form of humiliations in the last few years. Do you really think that Fawad, Faisal and Sharmila can retrieve the Pakistan Army? Let them say a few things, but let Pakistan Army self implode with its derh hoshiar pana!

  • Confusing. Wasn’t Nawab Bugti an important part of the first PPP government under Bhutto who restarted operation in Balochistan in 1974? Bugti was killed by Musharaf and Bhutto was killed by Zia. Musharaf was appointed by Nawaz Sharif who was also one the chief beneficiary of Zia. And Nawaz Sharif’s PML N supported Bugti’s commemoration yesterday.

    Fawad Chaudhary’s tweet was wrong but this is a very confusing sitution and no one comes out clean. Baloch have genuine cause but why are they supporting ISI-backed Jihadi group Jundullah? Did they not read history to see how the “Mujahiden” (JM, LeT, HuM) destroyed the legitimacy of the Kashmiri movement.

    With friends like CJ and Hamid Mir, I advice caution to my Baloch friends. Such people are using you. What was CJ doing since 2007. so far, he was lectured two ISI colonels. Compare that to what he has done with his political rivals.

    As for Faisal Raza, he is being misrepresented here and quoted out of context. Yes, his pro-army statements are disturbing but see what he is doing. He is positioning army against the Taliban. If he can alter the public perception on this issue as well as exposing corruption of CJP, I can overlook his flaws.

  • Fawad Chaudhary is Gillani’s man. FRA and Sharmila are with Zardari. I doubt anyone of them are saying anything that is not the party line. It is the PPP vs Judiciary and in that fight, the PPP wants the army to stay out. It is making a pro-army stance but we all know that this is only working because the army also needs PPP to get it out of the mess that they have placed themselves under by supporting DPC, PTI. The army needs PPP and PPP needs army. Its politics as usual. Khaled Ahmed (ET, TFT) has written on why Gen. Kiyani has done 180 change. Analyse that and you will see why FRA is free to expose CJP and SC corruption every night on TV. Without army backing, this would not have been possible. To expect that Fawad and Faisal will change their stance on this issue not possible now. The best thing would be for Baloch to understand is that where PPP has failed them, the CJ will not deliver either. Neither will Hamid Mir.

  • Sharmila Farooqi and Faisal Raza Abidi have been redundant add-ons to this post. Did they say any thing about Bugti?

  • I think every Pakistani likes army, and whats wrong if Fawad Chaudhry, Sharmila Faruqi and Faisal Abdi said any thing in favor of army. Due to some acts of generals you should not blame entire army.

    Nawab Akbar khan Bugti’s brutal murder was great tragdy of Pakistan and Pakistani especially Baloch won’t forgive Pervez Musharraf. (May he rest in peace.)

    Here is a humble request due to one or two tweets don’t judge any person.

  • I usually like articles at LUBP, this one… I can’t agree.. Army is a pride of any country.. Army is not comprised of Generals only. there are hundreds of thousands of ‘Jawans’ who stake their lives for us everyday, every hour… We must defend them, stand by them and speak out louder than we do to encourage them.. It sounds absurd and stupid to try and demoraize them… Faisal, Sharmeela doing the right thing. Every Parliamentarian should do the same… Fawad choudhary’s Tweet was bit iffy.. He should have checked the official position of PPP first.
