Did Jamshed Dasti free the rapists of Mukhtaran Mai? – by Maula Bux Thadani

The fundemental principle followed by Pakistan’s urban intelligensia (fake civil society – FCS) is to divert criticism away from the real culprits.

Jamshed Dasti (a commoner, a PPP MNA from Muzaffargarh) did not free the rapists of Mukhtaran Mai, the Supreme Court did, just like they freed Jihadis such as Hafiz Saeed (Let), Qari Saifullah Akhtar (BB’s murderer) and Mullah Abdul Aziz (Lal Masjid).

In going after Jamshed Dasti, Pakistan’s urban elites and their middle class paraphernalia are being true to their typical intellectual dishonesty of diverting responsibility from the real culprits, the Supreme Court. For them, a commoner like Jamshed Dasti is both a convinient scapegoat and proof that the PPP is not composed of feudals.

Dasti too has fallen into their trap by giving statements that are supportive of this horrible decision by the Supreme Court to free rapists. By so doing, he is siding with the same “Pro-Rape Islamofascist” Supreme Court that disqualified him on a constitutional clause, inserted by a military dictator that was ironically facilitated by them. However, the exuberation of Pakistan’s fake civil society and Ziaist establishment was short lived as Dasti won the bye-elections by an even bigger margin and in the process, giving a thumping defeat to ‘the feudal of his area.

LUBP has already critisized Dasti both on this account and for his alleged assistance from Sipah Sahaba voters. The bye-elections numbers prove that Dasti does not need the Sipah Sahaba, another favourite of the Supreme Court which has freed numerous SSP terrorists like Mullah Aziz (Lal Masjid), Malik Ishaq (SSP) and Qari Saifullah Akhtar (SSP/TTP).

Dasti should NOT emulate the Supreme Court and support rapists and Jihadis. He needs to make an unconditional apology to Mukhtaran Mai and ensure maximum security for her.

In the words of PPP leader, Sharmila Farooqi: “Shame on You” (Jamshed Dasti) for siding with the Pro Rape Supreme Court.

At least we can hold Dasti to account, through the party and through the ballot box. But who will free us from the Judicial Martial law of CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry and his band of Islamofascists and Islamopatriots like Tahira Abdullah, Aitzaz Ahsan, Ayesha Tammy Haq, Imran Khan, Munawar Hasan, Mubashir Hasan, Roedad Khan and Hamid Gul?

    @ctbritt Do you realize Chris that the paper you are quoting (The News) is no less classy (hint: Sehbai, Najam Sethi, Kamran Khan, Ansar)

    Then you may also have noted that Mukhtaran’s rapers were not released by Dasti but by the ISI backed, anti-secularism judiciary

    The point is: our anger ought 2 b directed to the court which is quick to release Hafiz Saeed & rapers but arrests PPP ministers

    Further, the FCS proxies of the ISI/SCP in Pak media / blogs R trying very hard to direct public anger to Dasti instead of SCP

    Q. Why R #FCS against Dasti? Ans: Convenient scapegoat for Iftikhar Chaud. Also Dasti, a poor man, is a slap on the PPP-feudal-party theory.

    Apologists of Iftikhar Chaudhry & Aitzaz Ahsan R blaming Jamshed Dasti for a decision by ISI-backed judges. Hypocrites #FCS #MukhtarMai

  • Why did Shaheen Sehbai / Najam Sethi / Ansar Abbasi publish this item “in support” of PPP?

    Dasti praises SC verdict in Mukhtaran Mai case

    Usman Manzoor
    Tuesday, April 26, 2011

    ISLAMABAD: While there is a hue and cry among NGOs and human rights activists against the Supreme Court judgment in Mukhtaran Mai’s case, there are a few who are ready to welcome the apex court’s decision saying that the courts are dispensing justice even when they are under pressure.

    One of them is the fake degree fame PPP MNA Jamshed Dasti from Muzaffargarh who not only praised the SC over the judgment but also criticised the NGOs and human rights activists for not accepting the verdict of the court and propagating against the people of Muzaffargarh. He also termed the Mai episode as a conspiracy to defame Pakistan and Islam and alleged that billions were made by projection of a fake drama.

    The PPP MNA swears by God that no such incident ever took place in Muzaffargarh. The brother of Mukhtar Mai, he said, had committed adultery with one of the girls of the Mastoi clan and in the jirga it was held that Mukhtaran Mai may be married to a person from Mastoi clan but this proposal was rejected by a few members.

    He says neither Mastois were feudal nor anyone else and it was a wrong projection that feudals had given verdict of gang rape of Mukhtar Mai. When asked that one person had confessed to committing rape with Mukhtar Mai, Dasti said he had to confess to rescue all others.

    While hailing the SC judgment and criticizing those who are protesting, Dasti said, “I appeal to the chief justice of Pakistan to take action against those who were maligning the apex court for a thing which could not be proved in the Lahore High Court and then in the Supreme Court”.

    “Mukhtar Mai case was a conspiracy against Islam and NGOs have minted billions so far along with Mukhtar Mai, who too has become billionaire by cashing on a fake and concocted drama,” said the MNA adding that the then Lahore High Court, Justice MA Shahid Siddiqui, who is in the SC now, and Justice Ijaz Chaudhry, now the LHC Chief Justice, had penned downed the historic judgment by examining each and every aspect of the case and similarly the Supreme Court verdict also speaks of nothing but truth.

    “The courts have proved that they are dispensing justice even when they are under pressure,” said Dasti adding: “The courts have cleaned the blot on Muzaffargarh which appeared as a result of this concocted story.”

    Even the NGO mafia had protested against LHC judges in Muzaffargarh in 2005 and now they were protesting against the Supreme Court to prove themselves loyal to their masters. Dasti vowed to register his protest against what he called the NGO mafia in the National Assembly as well.

  • I just wanna add some thing. We will never prosper till the corrupt ministers (like we have in majority in Pakistan since inception)will be wiped off from our motherland.

    Current PPP government will be recalled as worse democratic government in future. You PPP supporters need to think after completion of your tenor, can u afford 5 more years of corruption by giving votes to zardari & co?

    Democracy was never for Pakistan, as majority of our voters are illiterate. Do you expect a vote of an illiterate person can be compared with a literate one? Never. We need to educate our generation, but what PPP did to HEC??? That was a shameful act. You guys need to figure out what ur gr8 leaders (Bhutto and his daughter)wanted and what are ur current ministers doing.

    Only time can tell who was wrong, but in the current scenario, even a blind can tell who’s right and who’s wrong.
