Jaali Voter Fehristein aur Tunno Ki Besharmi! – by Saad Mansoor (Roman Urdu)

Har nayay din ke saath humaaray munsif-e-aala urf Tunno aik aisa tabsara kertay hain ke ke har jamhooriyat pasand shehri baithay bithhaye bilbila uthta hai. Lagta hai Musharraf ki kitab Kakkoo kay Kaarnamay (jisay baaz loag ghalti se In the Line of Fire bhi kehtay hain) ke baad ab nayi kitab Tunnoo ke Tabsaray bhi jald shaya hogi.

ہر نئے دن کے ساتھ ہمارے منصف اعلٰیعرف تنّو ایک ایسا تبصرہ کردیتے ہیں کہ کہ ہر جمہوریت پسند شہری بلبلا اٹھتا ہے۔ لگتا ہے مشرّف کی کتاب “ککّو کے کارنامے(جسے بعض لوگ غلطی سے “ان دی لائن آف فائر” بھی کہتے ہیں) کے بعد اب نئی کتاب “تنّو کے تبصرے” بھی جلد شائع ہوگی۔

Tunnoo ka sab se naya tabsara jo maine Geo News per suna hai aur lihaza jiski sadaaqat ko jhutlaaya nahi jasakta wo yeh hai ke Election Commissioner ko tanbhee kertay huay unhon ne kaha ke uss hudd tak nahi jaana chahtay ke poochhay in jaalee voter liston per aayi assembliyon ki haisiyat kya hai?

تنّو کا سب سے نیا تبصرہ جو میں نے جیو نیوز پر سنا ہے اور لہٰذا جس کی صداقت  کوجھٹلایا نہیں جا سکتا، وہ یہ ہے کہ الیکشن کمیشنر کو تنبیہ کرتے ہوئے انہوں نے کہا کہ اس حد تک نہیں جانا چاہتے کہ پوچھیں “ان جعلی ووٹر لسٹوں پر آئی اسمبلیوں کی حیثیت کیا ہے؟

Ab koi sochta hai ke insaan ki besharmi ki koi hudd hogi tou usay Tunnoo se mila dou. Bhala woh kyun? Tou mulahiza farmayay!

July 2007 jab Tunnoo apni kursi pe mazay se baitha thha Pakistan Peoples Party, Muslim League Nawaz, Pakhtunkhwa Miliawami Party yehan tak ke Muslim League Qaaf bhi voter fehristo ki durustugee ke liye inki adaalat mein gaye thhay. Akhbaar tarashay zel mein hai:

BBC World:  Court keeps pressure on Musharraf

اب کوئی سوچتا ہے کہ انسان کی بے شرمی کی بھی کوئی حد ہوگی تو اسے تنّو سے ملا دو، بھلا وہ کیوں؟

تو ملاحظہ فرمائیے!

جولائی ۲۰۰۷ میں جب تنّو اپنی کرسی پہ مزے سے براجمان تھا توپاکستان پیپلز پارٹی، مسلم لیگ نواز، پختون خواہ ملّی عوامی پارٹی،یہاں تک کہ مسلم لیگ قاف بھی ووٹر فہرستوں کی درستگی کے لئے ان کی عدالت میں گئے تھے اس حوالے سے خبروں کے اخباری حوالے درج ذیل ہیں(اوپر ملاخچہ فرمائیے

Iss maslay per kisi ne Suo Moto Notice nahi liya thha balkay voter fehriston ke shayaa honay ke baad BB shaheed ne sab se pehley 26 June 2007 ko isko media mein uthhaya aur kuch din baad saari opposition jamaaton ne iss per ehtajaj ke saath saath adalati kaarwayi ka aghaaz kerwaya.

اس معملے پر کسی نے سوموٹونوٹس نہیں لیا تھا بلکہ ووٹر فہرستوں کے شائع ہونے کے بعد جب بی بی شہید نے سب سے پہلے ۲۶ جون ۲۰۰۷ کو اس کو میڈیا میں اٹھایا اور کچھ دن بعد ساری اپوزیشن جماعتوں نے اس پراحتجاج کے ساتھ عدالتی کاروائی کا آغاز کروایا

Raaton raat 2.8 crore logon ka izafa hogaya aur voters ki tadaad apne mantaqi adad ko ja pohanchi. Iske bawajood PPP, PML-N ne apnay adam-itminaan ka izhaar kerte huay election mein hissa liya aur siyasi jamaaton samaith NGOs bilkhasoos PILDAT ne kaha ke abhi bhi croron logo ka naam fehristo mein nahi hai aur bari taadaad mein jaali naam hain. Tunnoo ne dhai crore voters ki shamooliyat ka sehra khudi apnay aap ko bhi pehnaya aur daad bhi batori. Sawaal yeh hai ke agar yeh voter listein sahi nahi thi tou iska zimmidar kaun hai?

راتوں رات دو کروڑ اسی لاکھ لوگوں کے ناموں کا اضافہ ہوگیااور ووٹرز کی تعداد اپنے منطقی اعداد کو جاپہنچی، اس کے باوجود پی پی پی اور پی ایم ایل۔این نے اپنے عدم اطمینان کا اظہار کرتے ہوئے الیکشن میں حصّہ لیا اورسیاسی جماعتوں سمیت این جی اوز بالخصوص پلڈاٹ نے کہا کہ ابھی بھی کروڑوں لوگوں کے کانام مہرستوں میں نہیں ہے اور بڑی تعداد میں جعلی نام ہیں، تنّو نے ڈھائی کروڑ ووٹرز کی شمولیت کا سہراخودی اپنے آپ کو بھی بندھوایا اور داد بھی بٹوری۔ سوال یہ ہے کہ اگر یہ ووٹر لسٹیں صحیح نہیں ہیں تو اس کا ذمّے دار کون ہے؟

Na tou sadar woh hai, na election commsioner bus nahi badla tou woh Tunnoo hai jiski nazar ke neechay yeh jaali fehristein tayyaar ki gayi, aur Qaaf League ko Quomi Assembly ki 54 nashiston se nawaaza gaya, iske saath Punjab ki bhi aik-chauthhaai seatein Qaaf League ko di gayi. Aur agar Musharaf ke baad kisi ki zimmedaari banti hai tou zehen per ziyada zor daalnay ki zarurat nahi.

نہ تو صدر وہ ہے نہ الیکشن کمشنر، نہیں بدلا تو وہ تنّو ہے جس کی نظر کے نیچھے یہ جعلی فہرستیں تیار کی گئیں، اور قاف لیگ کو قومی اسمبلی کی ۵۴ نشستوں سے نوازا گیا، اس کے ساتھ پنجاب کی بھی ایک چوتھائی سیٹیں قاف لیگ کو دے دی گئیں، اور اگر مشرّف کے بعد کسی کی ذمّہ داری بنتی ہے تو ذہن پر زیادہ زور ڈالنے کی ضرورت نہیں۔

Jin assembliyon per aaj Tunnoo ne ungli uthaker apni maili aankh se dekha hai woh in jaali fehriston ki badaulat nahi in jaali fehriston aur Tunnoo ki na-ehli ke bawajood aayiein hain. Par sharam tou magar aati nahi, lihaza lagay raho Tunno miyaan.

جن اسمبلیوں پر آج تنّو نے اپنی انگلی اٹھا کر اپنی میلی آنکھ سے دیکھا ہے وہ ان جعلی فہرستوں کی بدولت نہیں ان جعلی فہرستوں اور تنّو کی نااہلی کے باوجود آئے ہیں، پربقول غالب

شرم تم کو مگر نہیں آتی

لہٰذا لگے رہو تنّو بھائی

Harf-e-Aakhir: Tunno aik khayali kirdaar hai jiska haqeeqat se koi taaluq nahi, kisi bhi fard ki zindagi se mumasilat mehez ittefaq hai.

Harf-e-Aakhir 2: Yeh bhi batata chaloo ke imaan ke lihaaz se main apnay aap ko salafiyat (wahabiyat) se qareeb samajhta hu tou umeed kerta hu ke jaan bakhshi hojaye gi!

حرف آخر۱: تنّو ایک خیالی کردار ہے جس کا حقیقت سے کوئی تعلّق نہیں، کسی بھی فرد سے مماثلت محض اتّفاقی ہے

حرف آخر۲: یہ بھی بتاتا چلوں کہ مسلک  کے لحاظ سے میں اپنے آپ کو سلفیّت(وہابیت) سے قریب سمجھتا ہوں، تو امّید کرتا ہوں کہ جاں بخشی ہوجائے گی۔ ۔ ۔

  • I guess this is a worthy post but its value will become manifold if the author could also publish a version in Urdu font, in addition to Roman Urdu. Personally I find it really hard to read Roman Urdu.

  • Ask this B*****D, if the current assemblies do not have any worth, then what is your worth you piece of crap, Dajjal kee aulad!!!

  • Wow, what a statement by the Anti-Christ of Pakistan. Wasnt it in this assembly that it was announced that judges be reinstated and IMC be freed? This assembly allows for salary increase of judges and their perks. Ask him if that is the case, his existence is illegal! Seriously Sharam nahee aati!

  • SC questions validity of past elections

    ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered correction of electoral rolls and disposed of a petition regarding 37.8 million bogus voters on the assurance of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) secretary that all bogus entries in the electoral rolls would be duly eliminated.
    A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and comprising Justice Mohammad Sair Ali and Justice Ghulam Rabbani was hearing the case of 37.8 million fake voters on the electoral rolls of various constituencies.
    The chief justice asked the ECP secretary on whose behalf bogus entries were made in the electoral rolls and on what basis the bye-elections are held in the presence of bogus votes.
    Secretary Ishtiak Ahmed Khan informed the court that the ECP has chalked out a plan to delete the names of all those fictitious persons who are not on the record of the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra). He said that under the direction of the Chief Election Commissioner, the ECP has been making efforts for the past one year in collaboration with Nadra to prepare fresh, accurate, computerised electoral rolls on the basis of Nadra’s database pertaining to issuance of Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs) to all citizens of Pakistan above the age of 18 years. He said earlier CNIC was not mandatory for the registration of voters.
    He said they have completed the first phase and Nadra has provided verified and augmented data pertaining to the 2007 electoral rolls that contains variances in terms of errors, multiple and bogus entries. Nadra has pointed out that out of total 81.2 million voters registered in 2007, only 44.02 could be verified, which means the remaining over 37 million were dubious.

    EC failed to do its constitutional work: CJ

    Shoaib A Raja
    Friday, April 01, 2011

    ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Saturday accepted the petition filed by a local television anchor, Mubashar Lucman, praying that the Election Commission (EC) be directed to provide reasons for the discrepancies in the electoral rolls and Nadra database and also be directed to delete the names of all those fictitious persons who were not on the Nadra database system.

    While accepting the petition, the court also kept it alive so that if the petitioner was not satisfied with the performance of the EC, he could file an application in the same petition.

    Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry observed that the EC had failed to perform its constitutional duties and directed it to correct the electoral rolls in accordance with the database provided by the Nadra and Census department as soon as possible. A three-member bench of the apex court, comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Muhammad Sair Ali and Justice Ghulam Rabbani, was hearing the case.

    Earlier, counsel for the petitioner, Syed Ali Zaffar, concluded his arguments and prayed that the ECP be directed to correct the electoral voters lists so that elections could be held in a fair and fully transparent manner and people could elect their representatives in the true spirit of democracy.

    The Chief Justice observed that a petition was filed by the late PPP Chairperson Benazir Bhutto and the ECP was directed to correct the electoral rolls in the past. He further observed that now the ECP, in its press release, had admitted that almost 37.1 million fake and bogus votes existed in the electoral rolls.

    Counsel for Nadra Kundi submitted that their duty was to collect data for all the adult people in Pakistan and added that they had already covered almost 90 percent of that. He submitted that in the general elections of 2004, there was no need for the National Identity Card (NIC) and everyone was enrolled on any kind of identity. He further submitted that 2.14 million fake identity cards were registered at that time while 2.49 million duplicate cards were registered, as there was no computerised data available at that time. He stated that 11.5 million manual identity cards were enrolled without any previous record and while 44.027 verified cards were enrolled.

    The CJ asked the counsel for the petitioner, Syed Ali Zaffar, whether he knew the consequences of this petition. He also enquired the petitioner as to what he wanted from this petition. Mubashar Lucman submitted that all the bogus votes be deleted immediately so that electoral process could be fair and transparent.

    Secretary to the Election Commission, Ishtiaq Ahmad, submitted that after the general elections of 2007-08, they had been receiving complaints about the bogus votes and the chairman ECP directed us to find out the way, so we sought help from Nadra and they were working on it for the last one year. He further submitted that we had given our data to the Nadra and petitioner filed this petition on the difference of the data between ECP and Nadra. He stated that now they were going from door to door for the verification, which has three steps, one step has been taken while other two steps were under process.

    The CJ asked him as to how many bogus votes existed and how long it would remain in their record. Ishtiaq Ahmad submitted that in the general elections of 2007, 37.1 million votes were doubted and many of them were already in the system for a long time. Justice Sair Ali observed that invalidity could not be justified under any circumstances.

    The CJ observed that half of the total voting lists were fake and asked as to what the Election Commission was doing. Justice Sair Ali observed that as a citizen, he had been wasting his vote and the ECP had cheated him.

    Ishtiaq Ahmad submitted that without checking each and every vote, it was not appropriate to call it bogus and the data provided by Nadra was also of almost 80 million people. He further stated that 37.1 million fake votes had to be checked properly and then a decision had to be taken in accordance with the law. The CJ observed that the court and he knew it well as to how these fake votes were enrolled and who did it. He observed that the ECP should accept its failure and immediately take some action in this regard, so that they could be satisfied that in future nothing like this would take place.

    Ishtiaq Ahmad submitted that Nadra had never used the word ‘bogus’ for these entries but they could not find any record of it. The CJ asked as to why should the SC declare it bogus as it was the ECP’s duty to find it and delete it accordingly.

    Ishtiaq Ahmad submitted that they also wanted the same. He said that the Senate had already passed a bill that in the future NIC be made compulsory and hoped that the National Assembly would also pass the same bill in the coming session. He sought time till December. The CJ observed that the court did not want to be a party to this issue and directed him to ensure it as soon as possible.

    However, when the CJ was dictating his order, Ishtiaq Ahmad objected to the word ‘bogus’ on which, the CJ asked him to submit a written statement in this regard.

  • The court observed that the ECP has failed to fulfill its constitutional duty and rejected the ECP Secretary’s request to give him until December to complete the preparation of the computerised electoral list. Justice Sair Ali observed that the large number of fake votes have affected the credibility of the entire electoral system. “It seems the ECP is cheating on me for I, too, am a voter.” The Chief Justice observed that by-elections were being held. “The court is aware of the candidates winning in the polls.”

  • Contempt of Court on “Justice (Retd) Wajihuddin Ahmed?

    Verdict today on petition to stay presidential poll By Iftikhar A. Khan October 05, 2007 Friday Ramazan 22, 1428 http://archives.dawn.com/2007/10/05/top4.htm

    Justice Iqbal said the plea for staying the election would be decided on Friday after completion of arguments by both sides. Sharifuddin Pirzada and Wasim Sajjad will argue against staying the polls. During the course of hearing, Justice Iqbal took strong notice of remarks of Justice Wajihuddin about the bench and said he had “crossed the limits”. He asked Justice Wajihuddin’s counsel why should contempt of court proceedings be not initiated against him for his objection over the composition of the bench. “Why should a contempt of court notice not be issued to him?” The judge asked if the court should stand hostage to one of the groups. The court, he said, could not reconcile the situation where a candidate was raising objections against the bench and his counsel was reposing faith in it. Hamid Khan said he did not know what his client had said but he apologised if the statement was contemptuous. Justice Ramday said what had been happening in the country after March 9 was exceptional. He said everybody, including the media, had the right to comment or debate but they should do it in a responsible way.

  • Contempt of Court “BY LAWYERS”

    Lawyers flay Supreme Court decision By Our Staff Reporter November 8, 2002 Friday Ramazan 2,1423 http://dawnnews.tv/2002/11/08/nat2.htm

    ISLAMABAD, Nov 7: The Supreme Court Bar Association will soon convene a meeting to consider the issue of withdrawal of the status of senior advocate from the SCBA president, Hamid Khan, after his statement that the bar has no faith in the judiciary after it took oath under the PCO. Sadaqat Ali Mirza, an office bearer of the SCBA, speaking to reporters at a press conference on Thursday, said that the SCBA had highest respect for the members of the judiciary but it was inappropriate for the judiciary to attribute political motives to the bar for its principle stance with regard to the taking up of the matters of constitutional importance before the courts. He said the bar had only asked the apex court to return its review petition and such request could not be termed as contempt of court. It was a routine with the lawyers to ask the courts not to hear the case if they had any suspicion about getting justice from the bench would not be possible, he added.

    The SCBA office bearer said that the Supreme Court’s saying that the bar was criticizing its role for political and other extraneous motives, was wrong and it would not help the cause of any party. He argued that the statement of the SCBA which was placed before the Supreme Court bench by its president was the voice of the whole lawyers community and not the whim of any individual. He said that the whole legal fraternity was dismayed at the treatment being meted out by the apex court to its leader Mr Khan and asked the court to consider the whole matter with patience. Mr Mirza requested the court to try to ascertain why the whole legal fraternity was against it and regretted that the honour which was bestowed upon the SCBA president had been withdrawn without citing any reason through a suo motu action. He said the bar was opposed to such unilateral acts.

  • Compromise with govt to divide opposition’ By Our Correspondent July 27, 2003 Sunday Jumadi-ul-Awwal 26, 1424 http://archives.dawn.com/2003/07/27/nat4.htm

    He criticized the role of some judges who had legitimized the illegal steps of the military dictator. Hamid Khan said the implementation of Article 6 of the Constitution was necessary. He said the Pakistan Bar Council had published a white paper and another such document might be prepared. He said he had conveyed the message to the politicians invited by the prime minister for dialogue that a compromise on the LFO, the National Security Council, extension in the judges’ service, the president’s uniform and the contempt of court ordinance would divide the lawyers and political leaders. Amanullah Kanrani, Mohsin Javed, Ali Ahmed Kurd and Malik Zahoor Shahwani said the lawyers of Balochistan would continue their role for constitutional rule, democracy and provincial autonomy.

  • Supreme Court says its verdict has helped revive democracy By Rafaqat Ali October 31, 2002 Thursday Sha’aban 24,1423 http://66.219.30.210/2002/10/31/top9.htm

    ISLAMABAD, Oct 30: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it took oath under the PCO to preserve the judicial system, and due to its judgment in which it validated the military takeover the army was going back to barracks by restoring democracy. The apex court, responding to the statement of the Supreme Court Bar Association that arguing a case before the present judiciary was a futile exercise “as it had ceased to be independent,” observed that it reserved its right to take action against the president of SCBA, Hamid Khan, for his “disparaging remarks” about the independence of the judiciary. The SCBA had asked the SC bench on Monday to return its review petition as the bar was of the view that the judiciary, after taking oath under the PCO and by upholding various orders and acts of the present military regime, had ceased to be independent and no substantial question of constitutional importance should be argued before this court in its present composition.” The SC bench called the president of the SCBA, “Hamid Khan, contemner,” and said the SCBA statement was “motivated by malice, extraneous considerations and for political reasons.” In its five-page order, authored by Chief Justice Riaz Ahmad, the SC held that the contents of the application constituted gross contempt of court as it used disparaging remarks about the judiciary through the language which could not have been expected from the pen of the SCBA president. The SC asserted that democracy was being revived in the country and the regime would go back to barracks because of the SC judgment in Zafar Ali Shah case and the oath taken by judges of the SC (under PCO). “It is because of the judgment in Zafar Ali Shah case and oath taken by the judges of the Supreme Court that a time schedule was given and the regime had to hold elections and to go back to barracks after restoration of democratic institutions.”

    The court said that in compliance with its judgments, elections were held in the country on Oct 10, 2002, and the process of transfer (of power) was in progress. The SC said that taking oath under the PCO by judges of the superior judiciary was welcomed by the senior lawyers like Khalid Anwar and SM Zafar. It said that those judges who had refused to take oath under the PCO did so according to their conscience and “heavy responsibility lay upon the judges who took oath (under PCO) for dispensation of justice.” The SC stated that its judgment, validating the military takeover, was universally acclaimed and had been described as a landmark judgment.

    The court said it could proceed to take action against Hamid Khan, president of SCBA, but it was always appropriate to exercise restraint. “However, we reserve the right to take the proper action at an appropriate stage.” The SC said: “Unfortunately, some members of the Bar, motivated by malice, extraneous considerations and for political reasons or ill-will, make irresponsible statements to tarnish the image of the judiciary which is not at all in the supreme national interest.” The SC said it “strongly deprecate and condemn this attitude on the part of Hamid Khan and considering the contents of this application scandalous, malicious and irrelevant, we order that paragraph (I) and (II) therefore be struck off.” The SC said it had highest respect for those members of the bar, who have shown respect to the judiciary. By making such attempts the members of the bar were abusing the sacred elected office, it said. The court further observed that by taking oath under the PCO the judiciary had “saved the independence of (the) judiciary as well as the system of administration by preserving the Bar as well.” “Failing which the bar would have been replaced by all together a new system unknown to a civilised society.” It said that judges took oath under the PCO “in the highest national interest, and therefore we have deliberately not chosen to proceed against Hamid Khan in view of the interest of the institution, “but we reiterate that we reserved our right to proceed against Hamid Khan, contemner.”

    The court observed that Hamid Khan knew that all the points which had been raised in the review petition had already been dealt with in the judgment, and the court would not allow re-hearing of the matter. The court said that knowing full well the consequences of the review petition, the counsel deliberately declined to argue the case “motivated by malice, ill-will and extraneous considerations.” The court said that review petition was fixed for hearing on Oct 28 when a request for adjournment was moved on behalf of Hamid Khan, expressing his inability to appear before the court on the said date due his unavoidable personal obligation and prior commitments. The bench assembled in the court to consider the aforesaid request for adjournment when, surprisingly, the court noticed the presence of Hamid Khan in the courtroom who came at the rostrum and submitted an application under the caption “Statement at the Bar”. The court said that it was high time that counsel like Hamid Khan and the members of the bar realised their responsibility towards the courts and the society. “If this state of affairs continues then God be with us and nothing more could be said about it. As a consequence of the above, this review petition has no merits and the same stands dismissed accordingly”, the court concluded.
