اس گھر کو آگ لگ گئی، گھر کے چراغ سے
The above Urdu couplet tells us who to blame and who to not. Isn’t it ridiculous to blame American for our problems when our own people are bent upon destroying this country and its people? Our civil society, students, journalists and indeed some politician rightly expressed the real feeling of Pakistani society during the recent visit of Ms Clinton to Pakistan but who will educate our masses that our own people are letting blood suckers to suck the last drop of our blood? And after all they can do this as they enjoy the ‘mandate’ of majority of Pakistanis. It’s this stage where I unhappily say; “to hell with this democratic system where the illiterate majority defeats literate minority by electing the most corrupt, anti state leadership for steering the state affairs” But we still have to go along with this democratic system, as the military dictators have proved to be worst.
According to Online News Agency, Gilani’s government has issued License to the US for importing of explosives, armed weapons by violating rules and regulations.
“Government has issued license to US embassy for the import of armed weapons and explosives by violating rules and regulation, the news reads.
According to documents available with Online the permission to import of large quantity of ammunition and explosive was granted by the Ministry of Interior while ignoring the rules and regulations.
According to a letter dated May 29, 2009 the U.S. embassy in Pakistan requested to Foreign Ministry for permission to import the ammunition, which was needed to train the Crisis Response Team. Foreign Affairs Ministry contacted ministry of interior for grant of No Objection Certificate. The ministry of interior asked the intelligence agencies for necessary security clearance but without waiting for the clearance permission to import the ammunition and explosive granted the NOC on June 29, 2009. Former President Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf in 2003 had permitted the US embassy to set up a training center in Police Training College Sihala for the training of US embassy staff against terrorist activities but now a large area within the premises of college is in possession of U.S. trainers and restricted even for the College administration and Commandant.
For information of all concerned Pakistanis who use to raise their eyebrows after Americans being caught with arm are freed with a phone call from the ministry of interior, how can Pakistan take action against the Americans who have been allowed by our own government? Do you believe in the “statement” of Rehman Malik Dakait when he says that “No one is permitted to carry army” or the documents which permit them to violate the laws of Pakistan? This news also enlightens us that why didn’t our government take action against American for storing explosive in Sihala College, near KRL.
