Time to wakeup for PPP- by H.A. Khan

If you have some love with the history and the current affairs of Pakistan, then it is very easy to assess some important things going around. Certain things that are happening around these days are making some more clarity towards some bitter issues of politics.

The great Marxist teacher Lenin once said, if you don’t learn from the history then you are to be blamed of repeating it. If I see present situation then I feel a bit annoyed with PPP policies of reconciliation, even with General Zia ul haq’s remnants as Benazir Bhutto always used this historical term to describe them.

Whether it is a case of Rana Sanaullah’s plaza or his public postures with the Sipah Sahaba Terrorists in the election rallies, or whether it is judiciary at work to continue maligning the present government with all its efforts and not wasting a single minute to always be in news. PML-N supporting Taliban and not saying a single word against them and their brutalities. Some of PML-N people even speaking against women’s rights, paving the way of SSP terrorists to openly hijack the people of Jhang and addressing the rallies, the khadim e aala Shahbaz Sharif even not speaking a single word against his so called ministers and workers.

So here I ask myself that in what’s fools paradise are we, and want to live just deceiving ourselves. History has been able to make me aware that the historical alliance of right wing PML-N with the terrorists and jihadists is no more a hidden secret. More over the still awaiting urge of becoming the Ameer ul Momineen is alive. Our Prime Minister is trying to facilitate or appease the judiciary with all his efforts but he will always face a tough call from them as they don’t trust him (and the PPP), as was for instance stated by their supreme loyal Justice Javed Iqbal repeatedly on different forums.

I want to urge the PPP leadership to wake up and go to the masses and voters whom are their true and loyal supporters. The diminishing of anti-labour laws and signing of women protection bill are indeed a historical achievement, but still there is a lot more needed to confront the nexus of right wing media and judiciary under the umbrella of army.

Thus, historical lesson for the PPP is to reconcile with the poor masses and working class of this country.
