Ijaz-ul-Haq Bhutto and the Real PPP: Reflections of a Jiyala – by Maula Bux Thadani

Last week, Pakistan’s Fake Civil Society (FCS) who are actually the real PPP supporters, were using Ijaz-ul-Haq (son of Pakistan’s Islamofascist military dictator General Zia-ul-Haq) to diss Babar Awan. Many of them were  inflamed that Babar Awan was representing the Government in reopening the Bhutto trail.

We the Fake Peoples Party Supporters are touched by their concern for the Pakistan Peoples Party. Ijaz-ul-Haq’s interview, as conducted by veteran, progressive, objective and sincere journalists like Ansar Abbasi and Ahmed Noorani, was widely distributed by FCS and used by them to bash Babar Awan.

In this interview, a genuine, secular-Marxist PPP leader like Ejaz ul Haq superbly deconstructs why Babar Awan is not fit to represent the Government and open a trial that would cast unnecessary aspersions on his father, General Zia-ul-Haq, another bastion of secular liberalism and a genuine PPP leader unlike Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who had usurped the party.

In this regard, Zia ul Haq had to take a tough decision just like Leghari was to take two decades later.  Both these leaders are the genuine PPP and the true patriots of Pakistan. Not many know that Zia ul Haq was a founding member of the PPP and was disheartened when ZAB led PPP government decided to recognize Bangladesh as an independent country at the Islamic Summit Conference in 1974.

This is why us FPPP feel that we have failed the party and its true leaders.  FCC should also be heartened to note that their support for Ijaz ul Haq and Ansar Abbasi against Babar Awan was validated by veteran progressive humanist, Javed Chaudhary.  However, since his article was in Urdu, which is a Fake language, it did not make its way into FCS discourse on this issue.

FPPPs like us felt that Asma Jehangir would have been a better choice but after seeing the tremendous support given to Ijaz ul Haq’s epic take on Babar Awan, we stand corrected and humbled. When they use Ijaz ul Haq to deconstruct Babar Awan, who are we to question their well intentioned stance!

We also agree with FCS that a true PPP stalwart, Chaudhary Aitzaz  should be leading this case.  After all, we all know his of his loyalty to PPP when ZAB was being “deposed”.  Throughout his career, Chaudhary Aitzaz has always sided with the Marxist establishment against the Imperial Fake PPP, whether it was 1977 or 2007.

Since 2007, Chaudhry Aitzaz has sided with his fellow caste member Chaudhary Iftikhar and the two of them have taken a brave stance against Fake PPP leaders like the late Benazir and now Zardari.  Like his FCS admirers, Chaudhry Aitzaz has been consistent in this support of the Judiciary from 1977 to 2007 and present.  Like a true progressive he has placed his support with the Lal Masjid movement; an act that would have made Faiz proud.

Unlike the Citizens for Democracy (also known as the Citizens for Martial Law because of the stance of some CFD members like Nasim Zehra in favour of the establishment), we the FPPP and our allies like the Peasants for Democracy are not worthy of being PPP.  Neither is the leadership of the current PPP which is also fake.  Starting with Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and including Benazir, Bilawal, Farhatullah Babar, Fauzia Wahab, Taj Haider, Zulfiqar Mirza and Zardari, we wish that they are all expunged from the PPP which is then handed back to the Real PPP (RPPP).

The RPPP is based on the illustrious Ghinwa-Fatima Bhutto dynasty and the Left wing party founded by Marxist leader Zia ul Haq and continued by his brave son, Ijaz ul Haq.   In particular, we the FPPP have finally come to realize the amazing but misunderstood character of Ijaz ul Haq.  Inspite of his humble financial background, this man is a true and outspoken liberal who has always espoused the cause of such anti-imperialist Marxist movements such as  Lal Masjid and Taliban. When individuals like him raise their voices against someone like Babar Awan, we have to give such a voice the respect and reverence it truly deserves.

Supported by such proletariat heroes and democracy activists like Chaudhary Aitzaz Ahsan, Roedad Khan, Hamid Gul, Imran Khan, Munawar Hassan Fazlur Rehman and Humayun Akhtar, Ijaz ul Haq and Fatima Bhutto should be made the new chairpersons of the Real PPP.

We also feel that courageous journalists who have taken a stand against the FPPP establishment (Mosharaf Zaidi, Ansar Abbasi, Naveen Naqvi, take a bow) are also established as the real future leaders of the RPPP, possibly given the positions currently held by Farhatullah Babar and Firdous Ashiq Awan or that of the caretaker of Garhi Khuda Bux, qabristan of shuhada.

Ijaz recalls Babar Awan’s love for his dad

Thursday, April 14, 2011

ISLAMABAD: “Babar Awan was General Ziaul Haq’s energetic activist during his lifetime and even after his death. When PPP chief Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was in jail, Babar demanded hanging of Bhutto in public protests and distributed sweets in Rawalpindi courts on the day of his execution,” Ijazul Haq, the son of the third military ruler, confirmed to The News.

Babar Awan, however, declined to comment on the issue. Ijazul Haq also released to the media four pictures of a rally in Rawalpindi on Gen Zia’s anniversary in which Ijazul Haq and Babar Awan both made speeches.

Though different contemporaries of Awan used to narrate these stories and show extreme astonishment over Awan’s statements in praise of Bhutto, as during more than two and a half decades and till mid-90s, he always blasted ZAB and even abused him at times in different public rallies.

He also ran continuous protest campaigns demanding capital punishment for the revolutionary founding chairman of PPP when the latter was in jail in a murder case. But, now the relevant man, the son of Ziaul Haq and head of Zia-followers in Pakistan, has come on record and has confirmed Babar Awan’s heartiest affiliation with his father and enmity and hatred Awan always had in his heart for Bhutto. Ijazul Haq made many revelations during his exclusive interview with The News.

Ijazul Haq disclosed that Awan remained attached with him during the entire rule of his father and remained an activist against Bhutto. He said that Awan demanded public hanging of Bhutto and when ZAB was hanged, Babar was very happy and went to Rawalpindi courts where he distributed sweets among the lawyers.

He said that later he remained a sympathiser of his father. “Babar remained very active after my father’s death and used to conduct the proceedings of the anniversary of Shaheed Ziaul Haq as stage secretary,” said Ijazul Haq. He said that Babar Awan was given the honour to conduct the proceedings of the first death anniversary of his father as stage secretary on August 17, 1989.

Ijaz said that Awan’s love for his father further increased after his (Ziaul Haq) death as Babar became politically active. He said that Babar accompanied him to different processions and played ka ey role in success of Lal Kurti procession in the early 90s. Ijazul Haq disclosed that Babar Awan also invited him to his native village Matore (near Kahuta) to address a big public gathering to glorify the role of his father.

Ijaz said that Awan often used to visit the grave of his father to offer Fateha. Senior political leaders say that Babar remains with those who are in power and when they lose power and glory, he would look for the next party.

Babar Awan was repeatedly contacted for his version but he did not come on line on his cell and residence numbers. But when media persons asked Awan outside the Supreme Court building on Wednesday about distributing sweets on Bhutto’s hanging, he did not deny and simply said: ‘No comments’.

  • We are not the real PPP supporters. The real PPP is now on twitter and live in the high society. Why are we wasting time on ZAB’s case? We have important things to worry, i.e. the ego of the anti christ.
    Ijaz ul Haq was the president of Peoples Youth Organization. Mrs. Zia ul Haq went to jail fighting against Ayub’s rule when she was with the PPP Womens Wing.
    You guys need to remember the real heroes. Zia and Ijaz are the real heroes and true followers of the PPP

  • Babar awan is attacked by anti-ppp forces becuase he is the defence line of Asif zardari.Babar awan was made senator not by zardari, Benazir bhutto made him senator. why no one asked her and raised these questions when Benazir bhutto was alive.Babar awan fought cases of Benazir bhutto when she had very hard time, Before benazir bhutto went into exile she was draged into different courts and so many different cases was made agaisnt her by Saiful rehman.It was very tough time for Benazir bhutto and Asif zardari.Babar awan was the one who fought their cases and ran from one court to another court defending them.SC and other anti zardari forces who wants to get to zardari to harm him is facing big hurdle from Babar awan.he is the defence line of zardari.

  • Baki tu choro bhai… yeh Naveen Naqvi, Samad khurram and Musharaf Zaidi worried about PPP…. wasey inke aukat kia hey except someone hires them to make noise! 2/2 takky ke loog hain, paltoo aur bat Zardari se kam nahi karty!

  • Mosharraf Zaidi, Naveen Naqvi, Javed Chaudhry, Ansar Abbasi, Omar Waraich and their relatively less known flatterers on Twitter, all united in condemnation of Babar Awan.

    They will be ready to kiss Awan’s a** if he utters a single word in criticism of Zardari.

    Right Wing and FCS are nothing but ideological children of Aabpara paid to utter their daddies ideologies.

  • First of all i want to state it very clearly that i consider Babar Awan as closet Jamatia. My opinion about apolitical civil society criticism is highly biased.

    1. Jiyalas Consider Zia-ul_Haq as killer ZAB.

    2. Jiyalas also consider Musharaf & Establishment as killers of BB.

    Some of PPP leaders who were in contacts with Musharaf famous Ambassador and even Shaheed Salman Taseer accepted ministry under Musharaf regime . Civil Society doesn’t question their loyalty to Bhutto’s and their selfless Jiyalas .

    They are not transparent in their criticism .

  • At the CFD organized mela for Faiz this Sunday in Karachi, there were loud anti-US slogans but not a word against the various Jihadi militias that are killing Pakistanis

    بی بی سی اردو سروس دنیا کا وہ واحد صحافتی ادارہ ہے جس نے تسلسل سے بلوچستان کا مقدمہ دنیا کے سامنے رکھا ہے

    چند دن پہلے مجھے ایک ای میل موصول ہوئی جس میں بالاچ مری کے بھائی مہران بلوچ کی رؤداد بھی تھی اور فریاد بھی۔ آپ بھی سنیے۔

    اپریل کے دوسرے ہفتے میں مہران بلوچ کو یورپی پارلیمنٹ میں انسانی حقوق کی ایک ذیلی کمیٹی نے نمائندگی سے محروم افراد پر بولنے کی دعوت دی۔ اس کمیٹی کے قوائد کے مطابق مہران بلوچ کو اپنی تقریر پہلے بھیجنی تھی تاکہ کمیٹی اس بات کا تعین کر سکے کہ وہ ان کے کام کی نوعیت اور ذمہ داریوں کے دائرہ کار میں آتی ہے۔

    تقریر کی کاپی موصول ہوتے ہی کمیٹی کے ایک اہلکار نے مہران بلوچ کا دعوت نامہ اس بنا پر منسوخ کر دیا کہ تقریر کا متن کمیٹی کے دائرہ کار سے مطابقت نہیں رکھتا۔ مجھے موصول ہونے والی ای میل میں مہران بلوچ کی تقریر بھی شامل تھی۔ اسے پڑھ کر کمیٹی کے فیصلے پر مجھے ذرہ برابر بھی حیرت نہ ہوئی۔

    تین حصوں پر مشتمل اس تقریر میں پہلے بلوچستان کی تاریخ اور پس منظر تھا، پھر حالیہ صورتحال کا جائزہ اور پھر مہران بلوچ کی سفارشات۔

    سفارشات میں یہ کہا گیا کہ عالمی برادری پاکستان کی امداد بند کرے، بلوچ تحریک کی حمایت کرے اور مشرف اور رحمان ملک جیسے لوگوں پر جنگی جرائم کے مقدمے چلائے
    مجھے یہ پڑھ کر انتہائی دکھ ہوا کہ وہ تاریخ اتنی ہی مسخ شدہ تھی جتنی کہ ان نمائندگی سے محروم افراد کی لاشیں جن کا مقدمہ مہران بلوچ کو پیش کرنا تھا۔ حالیہ صورتحال کا جائزہ مکمل طور پر ان غیر ملکی انسانی حقوق کے اداروں سے لیا گیا تھا جن کی تحقیق یورپی یونین اور دیگر مغربی ممالک کے پیسوں سے ہی کی جاتی ہے۔ اس میں اگر مہران بلوچ یا بلوچ قیادت کے اپنے دماغ سے کوئی اضافہ کیا گیا تھا تو صرف اتنا کہ ہزارہا بلوچ ہلاک ہوئے، ہزاروں گمشدہ ہیں اور ایک لاکھ سے زائد بے گھر۔

    اور سفارشات میں یہ کہا گیا تھا کہ عالمی برادری پاکستان کی امداد بند کرے، بلوچ تحریک کی حمایت کرے اور مشرف اور رحمان ملک جیسے لوگوں پر جنگی جرائم کے مقدمے چلائے۔

    مہران بلوچ کی تقریر میں مجھے نعرے تو بہت ملے، نسل کشی کے نعرے، سیکیولرزم کے نعرے، آزادی کے نعرے، لیکن چار لفظ بھی ایسے نہ تھے جن سے یہ تاثر ملے کہ بلوچ قیادت کے پاس اپنی عوام کا مقدمہ لڑنے کے لیے ایسی تحقیق ہے جسے نہ تو کوئی جھٹلا سکے اور نہ ہی نظر انداز کر سکے۔

    مجھے بار بار اس بات کا خیال آیا کہ کاش یورپی یونین نے مہران بلوچ جیسے وراثتی رہنماؤں کی بجائے لاپتہ لوگوں کے حق میں آواز اٹھانے والے سول سوسائٹی کے نمائندوں کو بلایا ہوتا جن کے پاس تحقیق بھی ہے، جو ماضی کی تاریکیوں کی بجائے حال کے اندھیروں پر روشنی ڈال سکتے ہیں اور جن کے دل میں قیادت کے شوق سے بڑھ کر اپنے پیاروں کا دکھ ہے۔

    شاید مجھے مہران بلوچ کی تقریر اس لیے نہیں بھائی کہ بی بی سی اردو سروس دنیا کا وہ واحد صحافتی ادارہ ہے جس نے تسلسل سے بلوچستان کا مقدمہ دنیا کے سامنے رکھا ہے۔ ہمارے رپورٹر تمامتر مشکلات کے باوجود بھی بلوچستان گئے ہیں، انہوں نے ماورائے عدالت قتل ہونے والوں کے لواحقین کا دکھ دیکھا ہے، گمشدہ افراد کی ماؤں بہنوں کی آنکھوں میں خوف دیکھا ہے اور ان کے ذہنی کرب کو محسوس کیا ہے۔ شاید اس لیے بلوچ قیادت سے میری توقعات کچھ زیادہ ہی ہیں۔

    اور یہ توقعات شاید بلوچ قیادت تک ہی محدود نہیں۔ ذرا ذوالفقار علی بھٹو کے مقدمے کا حال دیکھیے۔ اور اگر مہران بلوچ سے میری خفگی کی وجہ سمجھنا چاہتے ہیں تو اس مقدمے کو ان جیالوں کے لواحقین کی نظروں سے دیکھیں جنہوں نے بھٹو کی پھانسی کی خبر سن کر خود کو زندہ جلا لیا تھا۔

    بھٹو کی بیٹی دو بار پاکستان کی وزیر اعظم بنیں لیکن انہوں نے عدالتی سطح پر یہ طے کرانے کی کوئی کوشش نہ کی ان کے والد کی پھانسی قانون کے مطابق تھی یا یہ ایک عدالتی قتل تھا۔

    اب جبکہ یہ بیڑہ بھٹو کے داماد نے اٹھایا ہے تو ملک کی سب سے بڑی عدالت ابھی تک یہ ہی نہیں سمجھ پائی کہ حکومت اس معاملے میں چاہتی کیا ہے۔ اور جب یہ وضاحت بھٹو کے ایک ایسے عاشق سے طلب کی گئی جو انہیں بیگناہ ثابت کرنے کی دیوانگی میں اپنی وزارت تک چھوڑ بیٹھا ہے تو اس کے پاس کہنے کو صرف اتنا تھا کہ انہوں نے پٹیشن وزیراعظم اور صدر دونوں کو دکھائی ہے۔

    یہ کیسا ملک ہے جس میں ہر کوئی سیاست کر رہا ہے سوائے مہران بلوچ اور بابر عوان جیسے لوگوں کے جن کی وجہء شہرت ہی سیاست ہے۔ ایک زمانہ تھا جب پاکستان کا سوچ کر کبھی کبھی گھبراہٹ ہوتی تھی، اب وحشت ہونے لگتی ہے۔

    پیپلز پارٹی کے پاس ایسے جیالوں کی کمی نہیں جو 40 سال سے بھٹو کا مقدمہ سڑکوں، گلیوں، جیلوں اور عدالتوں میں لڑتے آرہے ہیں، لیکن آج جب اس ادارے میں بھٹو کا مقدمہ لڑنے کی بات آئی جس نے ایک آمر کے دباؤ میں آکر عدالتی قتل کیا تھا تو اس عدالت کے سامنے ہم نے اسی آمر کے ایک بغل بچے کو کھڑا کردیا تاکہ عدالت کے ساتھ اس کے دامن سے بھی داغ دھل جائے.

  • Very interesting discussion! So now we should not worry about Pakistan and democracy because we have realized the real democratic leadership after around a half century. Our actual democratic, socialist, nationalist and communist leadership which emerged as a powerful civil society in shape of advocates, journalists, judges and columnists now compelled us to forget all about people whatever we were doing.

    Let us rethink that Babar Awan is bad man, He was good while he was with Hazarat General Zia-ul-Haq (PBUH) a torchbearer of democracy, Sherry Rehaman was good while she was away from so called PPP leadership, Salman Taseer was bad when he was alive and became good when he is not functional physically.

    So let us unite under one umbrella of great son of PBUH to suppress the corrupt, criminals and people required to holy Judiciary. Go ahead civil society and real democratics we are with you.

    But how we avoid elections? again those corrupt etc people like Zardari will win by bribing their uneducated, immoral, illiterate, innocent voters. So what we should do? Let us follow a trick! we should join them to get a entry to see how they attract those Jaahil voters and than we can again will get together in 2015 to think about our future.

    Thanks Civil Society and my dearest anchors. You people actually awaken me.

  • if awan is today pleading bhutto in the court, i believe bhutto stands proud today. bhutto has been able to win his enemies i suppose !!

  • Liberal and democratic PPP government has once again taken the road most taken. Instead of bending forces the religious orthodoxy, it has sought to fight against extremists trying to besiege this nation. In the process, the PPP has once again won the trust of those liberal and progressive sections of society that had voted for it. In process to counter mullahism , the PPP has stuck to its founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s legacy of struggle, which ultimately dragged him to the gallows. Martyrdom of Salman Taseer is not the first sacrifice by PPP against fanatics, Z.A Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto and several workers laid their lives in this struggle. PPP is the only ray of hope to nudge Pakistan on the path of liberalism and secularism.

    Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan. – File Photo by AFP

    LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Wednesday said Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) was not ruined by the military dictators but its own co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari succeeded in doing the same, DawnNews reported.

    Speaking at students federation’s meeting, Khan said Zardari unmasked the real faces of all political parties by ‘purchasing them’ and he should be given credit for that.

    Mr Khan predicted that PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif would soon make a phone call to Chaudhry Shujaat of PML-Q in order to bring him back to form a coalition and Sharif would assert the move as ‘in national interest.’

    The party chief further said N-league had opened their gates to welcome all political parties as they were scared of PTI’s popularity.

    The October 30 rally would decide whether the people of Lahore were with ‘right’ or with ‘wrong,’ said the PTI chief.
