Violence of the Lambs

Violence of the Lambs

by Waqar Ahmed
Follow me at twitter @TheAngryLawyer3

Imran’s mantra for last few years’ suites the following phrases to the T:

– If you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance then baffle them with your bullshit.
– If you cannot convince them, confuse them, once they are confused they will be violent.

This is not the first time that a political public gathering of Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) has witnessed violence at Chairing Cross Lahore on May 1, 2016. There have been similar and continuous episodes playing in every rally of PTI before. Just to refresh your memory a few incidents for examples:

1. We witnessed our violent lambs breaking the fast before time in an Iftari arranged by PTI and stole the chairs in Kasoor procession before general elections.

2. We saw the chaos and mayhem displayed by our lambs in the rally just before General Elections 2013 when they almost killed their own leader, out of sheer love, pushing him from the Lifter.

3. In 2014 during Imran’s Dharna Jaggernaut PTI folks cruised into women enclosure in Multan gathering , resulting into stampede that lead to loss of 14 innocent lives.

4. We have witnessed several violent incidents during 126 days long sit-in at Constitutional Avenue. One can’ forget their most peaceful attack at Pakistan Television Islamabad and National Assembly of Pakistan.

5. At the elected local body get together, representatives of PTI were seen playing Chair-Fight (forget about pillow fight its too old fashion) at Municipal Hall Peshawar during their oath taking ceremony.

6. Last week at PTI’s 20th Anniversary Celebrations at Islamabad they exhibited the worst behavior towards women folk and we are still hearing the countless stories of women molested by the patriot PTI supporters.

7. Despite the fact that PTI’s top leadership was strongly criticized on their failure to protect their female supporters from their own violent lambs, PTI, yet again, miserably failed to protect the honour, dignity and respect of their female supporters at Chairing Cross Lahore on May 1, 2016.

8. One of the worst kinds of violence these Lambs that almost each one of faces every day, is the one they demonstrate on social media. They use choicest of abuse and don’t leave any opportunity to show world about their upbringing at home and by their leadership.

That, I believe, is enough for elaborating the generally know violent, shameful and disgraceful attitude of supporters of a party which allegedly represents the educated class of our Country.
Imran epitomizes hatred , jealousy , desperation , frustration and gross mentality and it reflects in his supporters.

Now coming to the question why and how this has happened? What went wrong that our (allegedly) educated class became so violent, aggressive and abusive? My two cents in this regard are as follows:

a) While PPPP was on its way to the down stream of their dirty river of Politics and PMLN was trying to gain its power back after a long dictatorship, PTI was one of the biggest beneficiary of this political pandemonium. Then came the rise of PTI in Minar-e-Pakistan Lahore rally. Nonetheless, nothing was enough for PTI leader Imran Khan, he wanted to ascend to the throne of power by hook or by crook. He wanted more but he didn’t want trouble himself by going to tough areas of politics i.e. Karachi, interior Sindh, Baluchistan and even the dangerous area of KPK.

Punjab is fine place, even kid like Bilawal Zardari, who even go to who his maternal native place with a battalion of Govt. and private guards, can address large rallies without any hesitation. Also its Punjab that constitutes the biggest chunk of national assembly seats and you can’t become PM without winning Punjab and Imran knew that PMLN is entrenched in Punjab; they enjoy the massive vote bank here because of their development driven policies. So out of frustration, Imran resorted to shear abuse of top tear leadership of PMLN.

One still remember him calling Sharif brothers as ‘Dengue’ brothers.

Supporters followed the same line and started exhibiting similar traits towards anyone and everyone who holds a different political view.

b) Initially they were letting their frustration drained out at social media with more or less no opposition. Soon enough, the supporters of other political parties started confronting them on social media. PTI lost its social media monopoly even before the General Elections 2013. The worst part is that, as promised by their leader, PTI not only failed to clean sweep the General Elections but even failed become the second largest party in the National Assembly. This added to the frustration of its supporters.

Had their leader, faced the reality with sanity and accepted his defeat in General Elections, facing the reality for his supporters would not have been so difficult. However the leader miserably failed to act in a civilized, prudent and sportsman’s manner, so did the supporters. Irony is that now they cannot even freely drain out their frustration on Social Media. HENCE the Lambs became violent.

Now PTI’s spokesperson is blaming Chief Minister Punjab that he sent his party workers to create a scene in their rally, shows three things:

One: they failed to indentify and accept their failure again;
Two: Like leader, like spokesperson; and
Three: If in gathering of 12 thousand people, 5000 thousand were security personals and 2500 were Chief Minister Punjab’s supporters, then what happened to PTI’s HUGE support in Lahore? I believe its gone with the dirty wind.

The spokesperson’s reasoning reminded me of a practical joke: A woman, mother of two, filed for divorce in Court. The reason that she gave to the Court for divorce was, that her husband is impotent. The Lawyer asked her in open Court room if he is impotent then how about the children? Before she could have responded, in pin drop silence of Court Room, someone whispered, her husband may be impotent but not the whole neighborhood. ☺

It is never too late if you accept the faults within. Cheers!

Waqar Younis’s Report in 2015

Waqar Younis submitted a report with his recommendations in 2015 after World Cup and New Zealand tour. The report highlighted key issues that the team and the cricket structure faced in 2015 and Waqar put his suggestions to improve them.


 

The New Zealand Tour and World Cup 2015 Report

Unfortunately this tournament has ended with Pakistan’s ouster in the Quarter final against Australia which has left me deeply saddened and disappointed. It would have been great to have been on the winning side and come home with the World Cup trophy but I guess, in many ways more than one, I have come to realise our weaknesses and necessary changes required to compete at the International level in this new modern era of cricket. If we don’t make changes and move forward now, I’m afraid that Pakistan cricket will fall well behind all the other top cricketing nations.

Complete Text of Prime Minister’s Speech At UNGA2015

Text of Prime Minister’s Speech:
(Urdu Text of PM’s speech is also available on our Urdu site: www.urdu.radio.gov.pk/)
We congratulate Mr. Mogens Lykketoft for his election as President of the 7oth Session of the UN General Assembly. It is acknowledgement of your distinguished career in public service. We share your commitment to action towards building a more just and stable world. We also pay tribute to Mr. Sam Kutesa for his able stewardship of the 69th Session. Mr. President, Seventy years ago, the United Nations was created from the ruins of the most devastating war the world has witnessed. Its purpose was to build universal peace and prosperity on the basis of equitable principles, cooperation and collective action.
Despite the constraints of the Cold War, the United Nations served the international community as the beacon of hope; the repository of freedom; an advocate of the oppressed; a vehicle for development and progress. But, we – the peoples of the United Nations – have not succeeded in beating our arms into ploughshares or promoting universal prosperity and larger freedoms. Confrontation has returned between major powers at a time when many parts of the world are in turmoil.
Terrorism is spreading. Poverty and deprivation have yet to be overcome. Gross violations of human rights are rampant. We are witnessing human dislocation – refugees and forced migrants – on a scale not witnessed for over half a century. Our very existence is threatened by the wanton damage done to our planet’s life sustaining systems.
Yet Mr. President, this is also a moment of opportunity. Today, our interdependent world possesses the financial, scientific and organizational capabilities to address these diverse and interrelated challenges that pose a common threat to all member states. At the historic Summit over the weekend, we have collectively committed ourselves to achieve 17 Sustainable Development Goals, to promote equitable and inclusive development for all our peoples.
The real! challenge remains – to mobilize the collective political will and resources to ensure the comprehensive implementation of the agenda we have solemnly endorsed. Pakistan has already initiated action on national goals to promote the Post-2015 Development Agenda. We are also creating a robust mechanism for the monitoring and implementation of these goals and targets. Mr. President, Later this year in Paris, we will need to respond with common but differentiated responsibility to the threat posed by Climate Change. Partisan interests must not stand in the way of an ambitious and collective commitment to halt and reverse the damage done to our planet. Mr, President, On the 70th anniversary of the UN, we should strive to adapt this world organization so as to respond effectively to the current and emerging challenges that confront us all. Pakistan supports a comprehensive reform of the United Nations, including that of the Security Council.
We need a Security Council that is more democratic, representative, accountable and transparent. A Council that reflects the interests of all member states, in accordance with the principle of sovereign equality.
Not a Council, which is an expanded club of the powerful and privileged. Mr. President, Peacekeeping has been one of the key responsibilities of the United Nations. 2 Pakistan is proud of its historic and current role as a major troop contributor. We regard it as our obligation to uphold international peace and security. Mr President, Pakistan is the primary victim of terrorism. We have lost thousands of lives including civilians and soldiers to terrorist violence. The blood that has been shed – including that of our innocent children – has reinforced our resolve to eliminate this scourge from our society. We will fight terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, irrespective of who their sponsors are. Our Operation, Zarb-e-Azb, is the largest anti-terrorism campaign against terrorists anywhere, involving over 18o,ooo of our security forces. It has made substantial progress in cleansing our country of all terrorists and will conclude only when our objective has been accomplished. This Operation is complemented by an all-inclusive National Action Plan. It encompasses police and security actions, political and legal measures and social and economic policy packages, aimed at countering violent extremism. The global threat of terrorism cannot be defeated unless we address its underlying causes. Poverty and ignorance are part of the problem.
Extremist ideologies must be opposed. But the narrative of the terrorists also has to be countered through the just resolution of the several instances of oppression and injustice against Muslims in various parts of the world. Unfortunately, some seek to use the global campaign against terrorism to suppress the legitimate right of occupied peoples to self -determination. Mr. President, The rise and spread of terrorism across the Middle East today poses unprecedented security challenges. Wracked by violence, ethnic and sectarian conflicts, and the rise of Daesh, several countries of the region are today the vortex of conflict and instability. Others are being sucked into this quagmire. The tragedy of Palestine has intensified. The accepted avenue for peace between Palestine and Israel – a two state solution – appears further away today than ever before, due to the intransigent stance of the occupying power.
Yet as I speak the proud Palestinian flag is being raised just outside this hail. We hope this is just the first step. We look forward to welcoming Palestine as a full member of the United Nations. Mr. President, Muslims are suffering across the world: Palestinians and Kashmiris oppressed by foreign occupation; persecuted minorities; and the discrimination against Muslim refugees fleeing persecution or war.
The international community must redress these injustices against the Muslim people. Mr. President, We welcome the comprehensive nuclear agreement reached between Iran and the P-Five plus One. This shows what diplomatic engagement and multilateralism can achieve. It augurs well for the peace and security of our region and beyond Mr. President, Pakistan-Afghan relations underwent a positive transformation after the advent of the National Unity Government in Kabul.
In response to the request from the Afghan Government and with the support of the international community, Pakistan made strenuous efforts to facilitate the process of Afghan reconciliation. Dialogue did open between the Afghan Government and the Taliban, which was an unprecedented first. But it was unfortunate that certain developments stalled the process. Thereafter, militant attacks intensified, which we unequivocally condemn. Pakistan will persist in the endeavor to help resume the dialogue process and promote peace and stability in Afghanistan. We can, however, do so only if we receive the required cooperation from the Afghan government.
Tensions between Afghanistan and Pakistan are in neither country’s interests. We are encouraged that the international community, including the major powers, desire continuation of the peace process in Afghanistan. 4 Mr o President, Pakistan greatly appreciates China’s proactive role in promoting peace and prosperity in Afghanistan and our region. We welcome China’s vision of “One Belt, One Road”. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, announced during President Xi Jinping’s visit to Pakistan earlier this year wil! spur regional economic integration and bring prosperity to the entire region and beyond.
This is an inspiring model of South-South cooperation that should be emulated. We also welcome Russia’s greater focus on Asian cooperation. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization, which Pakistan will be joining this year as a full member, holds great promise for promoting regional connectivity. Mr. President, The history of South Asia is one of missed opportunities. Among its dire consequences is the persistence of poverty and deprivation in our region. Development is my Government’s first priority and has underpinned my policy to build a peaceful neighborhood. Our peoples need peace to prosper. Peace can be achieved through dialogue, not disengagement.
In 1997 when the Composite Dialogue was launched with India, our two countries agreed that this would encompass two principal items: Kashmir and Peace and Security, along with six other issues, including terrorism. The primacy and urgency of addressing these two issues is even more compelling today. Consultations with Kashmiris, who are an integral part of the dispute, are essential to evolving a peaceful solution. Since 1947, the Kashmir dispute has remained unresolved. UN Security Council resolutions have remained unimplemented. Three generations of Kashmiris have only seen broken promises and brutal oppression. Over lOO,OOO have died in their struggle for self-determination. This is the most persistent failure of the United Nations.
Mr President, When I assumed office of the Prime Minister of Pakistan in June 2o13, for the third time, one of my first priorities was to normalize relations with India. I reached out to the Indian leadership to emphasize that our common enemy was poverty and underdevelopment. Cooperation, not confrontation, should define, our relationship. Yet today ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary are intensifying, causing civilian deaths including women and children. Wisdom dictates that our immediate neighbor refrains from fomenting instability in Pakistan.
The two countries should address and resolve the causes of tension and take all possible measures to avert further escalation. That is why I want to use the opportunity today to propose a new peace initiative with India, starting with measures that are the simplest to implement: One, we propose that Pakistan and India formalize and respect the 2003 understanding for a complete ceasefire on the Line of Control in Kashmir. For this purpose, we call for UNMOGIP’s expansion to monitor the observance of the ceasefire.
Two, we propose, that Pakistan and India reaffirm that they will not resort to the use or the threat of use of force under any circumstances. This is a central element of the UN Charter. Three, steps be taken to demilitarize Kashmir. Four, agree to an unconditional mutual withdrawal from Siachen Glacier, the world’s highest battleground. An easing of threat perceptions through such peace efforts will make it possible for Pakistan and India to agree on a broad range of measures to address the peril posed by offensive and advanced weapons systems.
Pakistan neither wants to, nor is it engaged in, an arms race in South Asia. We cannot however remain oblivious to the evolving security dynamics and arms buildup in our region, which obliges us to take essential steps to maintain our security. As a responsible nuclear weapon state, Pakistan will continue to support the objectives of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. We have maintained the highest standards of nuclear security and have established an effective regime to ensure the safety and security of our nuclear facilities and stocks. South Asia needs strategic stability and this requires serious dialogue to achieve nuclear restraint, conventional balance and conflict resolution. Finally Mr. President, We look forward to playing our part to build a brighter era of peace and prosperity in South Asia. We owe it to our people and to succeeding generations.
I thank you Mr. President.

Aleem Khan Exposed

by Ahmed Noorani

A painful ordeal of a villager looted by PTI’s Aleem Khan
Tip of iceberg – Countless land grabbing and fraud cases but victims could not establish through documentary evidence – Villager from suburbs of Lahore though has unavoidable documentary evidence of Aleem’s fraud

A villager from the suburbs of Lahore has come up with documentary evidences explaining a painful ordeal which establishes grabbing of his land by the Vision Developers (PVT) Limited, owned by senior PTI leader Aleem Khan.
The villager was defrauded by Vision Developers through a dealer by taking possession of land after paying little advance, promising to pay the rest at the time of registry three months later.
For three long years nobody paid a single penny and land remained occupied. Later after 3-year long struggle by the villager, when the land value almost doubled compared to the originally agreed price, Vision Developer’s dealer got it registered in 2008 by paying some more money, by giving a fake cheque of Rs11.2 million which, however, bounced.
The poor villager again started a long battle to get his money but police cooperated with the powerful. The land price had become more than three times the amount for which he originally sold it but he was unable to get even the actual.
Subsequently, Vision Developers, after a hue and cry from different circles, repeated requests and daily visits of villager Haji Nazir Ahmad, gave him five cheques each amounting Rs500,000 in five installment in 2010 and 2011 (copies of cheques available and acknowledged by Vision Developers) but then once again refused to pay the major part of amount, originally agreed in 2005, which was in tens of millions.
Vision Developers in its response to this correspondent pressed one major point that it never has deals with land owners directly and always purchases land from dealers.
Aleem Khan’s staff referred this scribe to Faraz Chaudhry who is his brother-in-law and a key player in Vision Developers. Chaudhry told this scribe that when Vision Developers needs land for starting for any of its projects, it never has deals with land owners directly and acquires land through dealers. He said any cheques issued by Vision Developers never bounced in history.
Haji Nazir Ahmad agreed to sell his 71 kanal 18 marlas (approx. 9 acres) land situated in Phularwan village near Barki Road Lahore at the rate of Rs4.8 million per acre to Vision Developer’s dealer Hamid Sarwar. He was paid Rs15,000,000 and possession of land was taken from him on the promise that as land is not being registered in name of buyer party so rest of the amount will be paid within three months at the time of registry and land transfer.
Neither any amount was paid during these three months nor was Haji Nazir contacted for the registry. It was apparently because the powerful players of land business don’t even need registry and only believe in getting possession. After repeated contacts by Haji Nazir and his long struggle Vision Developer’s dealer Hamid Sarwar agreed to pay in 2008 three years after the original deal but at that time price of land in the area had become almost doubled the original amount.
Haji Nazir and his fellows demanded for payment on current market rate in 2008 (which was between Rs7 million to Rs7.5 million per acre in 2008) but they were threatened and Hamid Sarwar “agreed to” pay only Rs5 million per acre (only Rs200,000 per acre more). In fact, this was also a deception.
Haji Nazir was asked to get the land transferred in the name of Hamid Sarwar and was paid another Rs15,000,000 and was given a cheque (No-956708, Account No-13771-3, MCB Bank, Al-Faisal Town Lahore Cant Branch dated January 15, 2008, the account was of Hamid Sarwar) amounting Rs11,200,000 and was again promised that he will be paid Rs4,800,000 later. Because of having suffered for three years, Haji Nazir agreed to register the land in name of Hamid after receiving money and cheque. However, the cheque bounced. On query MCB informed Haji Nazir through a letter that the cheque belonged to a closed account.
Haji Nazir moved an application in Police Station Shumali Chaooni where Hamid Sarwar stated that his cheque book containing this cheque was stolen. He was confronted by Haji Nazir’s side that if his cheque book was stolen, why no action has been taken against him when he (Haji Nazir) was carrying the cheque Rs11.2 million? Hamid Sarwar had full support of authorities and police never proceeded against him.
However, Haji Nazir never gave up and started visiting Hamid Sarwar daily as his land was his only source of income. As the pressure mounted, Hamid Sarwar referred Haji Nazir to his ‘head-office’ to Aleem Khan and Faraz Chaudhry. Haji Nazir against spent two more years requesting Aleem Khan to pay his amount but was always denied.
He met Aleem Khan and Faraz Chaudhry several times and continued to request them through his frequent visits. Finally, Aleem Khan agreed to pay him but in installments of Rs500,000 each. Haji Nazir was given five cheques (details of cheques mentioned in questionnaire sent to Aleem Khan and is given below) in 2010 and 2011 in five installments and then he was refused any further payment. Haji Nazir, 55, was unable to make more efforts as he was threatened to not visit the Thokar Niaz Baig office of Aleem Khan again. The land of Haji Nazir was handed over to DHA by Vision Developers after the registry process was complete. Later this land was bought by one Paragon City.
Faraz Chaudhry while talking to The News said that Vision Developers has nothing to do with land owners and the company never purchased any land from Haji Nazir. The bounced cheque was not of Vision developers. He maintained that cheques issued by Vision Developers never bounced in the history of the company.
Every big property group never purchases land directly from the land owners and always operates through a middleman. They indirectly harass the landowners who refuse to sell their lands. Faraz Chaudhry in his version to The News was correct that his company hasn’t directly purchased land from Haji Nazir and that the bounced cheque was not issued by Vision Developers. He was also right that cheques issued by Vision Developers never bounced. However, Vision Developers made a simple mistake in this case by issuing Haji Nazir five cheques of Rs500,000 each.
Faraz Chaudhry had no answer to the question that for what purpose these cheques were issued in the name of Haji Nazir when Vision Developers never purchase land directly from land owners and hasn’t purchased any chunk of land from him.
The News sent following questionnaire to Aleem Khan and Faraz Chaudhry on official email faraz@cinestar.com.pk. Faraz Chaudhry confirmed receiving questionnaire but restricted his response to above stated statement.
“Respected Aleem Khan Sahab/Faraz Chaudhry Sahab
AoA,
Refer our telephonic conversation about non-payment of some Phularwan village (Barki Road) lands, I will be thankful if you can respond to following questions;
Q-1)- Whether Aleem Khan Sahab and you (Faraz Chaudhry Sahab) remember (or can check/verify) following accounts numbers were maintained by Vision Developers Pvt Ltd and payments were made to mentioned person through the five cheques (cheque numbers specified) on given dates (Copies of cheques attached with email)?
Account:1 (two cheques)
Account No- 0003-2000486003 in SILK BANK (Main Branch Lahore)
Cheque No-1532200 dated: September 07, 2010 amounting Rs500,000 (rupees five hundred thousand only) issued to Mr Nazir Ahmed (Attached with this email as ANNEX-1) & Cheque No-1902749 dated: October 22, 2010 amounting Rs500,000 (rupees five hundred thousand only) issued to Mr Nazir Ahmad (Attached with this email as ANNEX-2)
Account: 2
Account No- 01000101009262 in Askari Bank (Johar Town Branch, Lahore)
Cheque No-52316147 dated: December 27, 2010 amounting Rs500,000 (rupees five hundred thousand only) issued to Mr Nazir Ahmad (Attached with this email as ANNEX-3)
Account:3
Account No- 0252-01875032 in Bank Alfalah (EME Society Branch, Lahore)
Cheque No-0022647 dated: February 15, 2011 amounting Rs500,000 (rupees five hundred thousand only) issued to Mr Nazir Ahmad (Attached with this email as ANNEX-4)
Account:4
Account No- 0252-1002389511 in Bank Alfalah (EME Society Branch, Lahore)
Cheque No-0035571 dated: April 25, 2011 amounting Rs500,000 (rupees five hundred thousand only) issued to Mr Nazir Ahmad (Attached with this email as ANNEX-5)
2)- Can you please share the details of business transaction for which payments were made to this person Mr Nazir Ahmad through cheques mentioned in Question-1?
3)- Whether Aleem Khan Sahab ever purchased any chunk of land directly or through any dealer in Phularwan village situated near Barki Road Lahore between the years 2004 to 2008?”
Next questions details all above details and ask Aleem Khan and Faraz Chaudhry to respond.
There are hundreds of other such cases but poor victims who lost their lands don’t have proper evidences. This case is just a tip of the iceberg and needs attention of NAB which otherwise spares powerful and mighty and only focuses on weaker and smaller targets.
There are many Haji Nazirs in the area, mostly poor, illiterate who have been defrauded by different land business groups but there is no one to help them as there is a quota of plots for every segment of society in these housing towns. Another aspect is that mostly such people do not have evidence at the time of such transactions. Haji Nazir was lucky to get five cheques from Vision Developers which exposed a big scam. Investigations into the scam can lead to many other similar cases and disclosures.

Response to Imran Khan’s Letter for Aleem Khan Support (Urdu)

عمران خان کے علیم خان کی سپورٹ میں لکھے کھلے خط کا جواب

عمران خان (دراصل علیم خان) نے اپنے حامیوں کو ایک کھلے خط کے ذریعے علم خان کو این اے ایک سو بائیس میں ٹکٹ دینے کے اپنے اقدام کو درست ثابت کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے – یہ کھلا خط تحریک انصاف کے حامیوں کی طرف سے پارٹی فورمز اور سوشل میڈیا پر تنقید اور منفی تبصروں کی بھرمار کے بعد پارٹی کی ویب سائٹ پر شائع کیا گی

Chairman Imran Khan’s message to all Insafians: Why I chose Aleem Khan for NA 122

It is important for all Insafians to know why I gave the NA 122 ticket to Aleem Khan and to understand the man Aleem Khan is.

He is from a middle class family and graduated from Government College Lahore.

غیر مراعات یافتہ طبقے سے تعلق ہونا اگر دلیل ہے تو وہ ترکھان اور درزی آپکے ٹکٹ کے زیادہ بڑے مستحق ہیں جنکی تصویروں پر مبنی اشتہارات آپکے بدنام زمانہ بین الجماعتی انتخابات کے دوران میڈیا کی زینت بنتے رہے – دیکھا جائے تو علیم خان کا موازنہ ملک ریاض سے بنتا ہے نہ کہ ایک عام غیر مراعت یافتہ طبقے کے گریجویٹ سے – بلکہ زیادہ غریب خاندانی پس منظر کی وجہ سے ملک ریاض تحریک انصاف کے ٹکٹ کےعلیم خان سے زیادہ مستحق ٹھہرتے ہیں – بلکہ انہیں تو تحریک کی صدارت کی مسند پر فائز ہونا چاہیے – باغی اور وجیہہ الدین کو بھول جائیے

He went on to study Business Administration in Canada but discovered he had cancer so he returned to Lahore and underwent treatment at Shaukat Khanum Hospital where he made a full recovery from Stage 4 cancer.

بہت اچھا ہے – خدا انہیں کینسر سے صحت یابی اور مزید پلاٹ مبارک کرے – لیکن کیا یہ بودی دلیل ہمدردیاں حاصل کرنے کو دی گئی ہے یا میرٹ کی دلیل کے طور پر – شہباز شریف کو بھی جلاوطنی کے دنوں میں کینسر کا عارضہ لاحق ہوا تھا کیا عمران انہیں بھی ایسی ہمدردی کا مستحق سمجھتے ہیں؟ یقیناً نہیں

He went on to becoming a huge success in the cutthroat Real Estate business and as always tends to happen, success attracted jealousy and envy – the same happened with Jehangir Tareen. Aleem also went on to join PML Q and was made a minister in the Musharraf government.

جی ہاں قاتلانہ مسابقت، محض لفظی نہیں بلکہ حقیقی

In its June 2003 issue, monthly magazine Political Scene reported that there was a dispute between Aleem Khan and property owners in Malikpur village. Aleem Khan was allegedly pressuring the locals to sell their land to the society at government rates so the scheme could expand.
According to the FIR, a copy of which was printed in the magazine, on January 29, 2002, Aleem Khan and seven gunmen went to Malikpur village and confronted Haji Bashir, demanding he sell his land. Haji Bashir refused, and the gunmen reportedly opened fire at him and his men. A night watchman, Muhammad Sarwar, was killed. The FIR was registered at North Cantonment police station and Aleem Khan and his seven gunmen were named as the accused.

ان تفصیلات سے تو علیم خان کا حقیقی کردار کسی بھارتی فلم (مثلا ً گینگز آف ملک پور) کا ولن معلوم ہوتے ہیں – مگر یہ انکی شخصیت کا محض ایک پہلو ہے – اگر آپ سمجھتے ہیں کہ علیم خان صرف دیہاتیوں کو بندوق کے زور پر دھمکانے اور بیواؤں سے زمین خالی کرواکے قبضے کرنے تک محدود ہے تو آپ غلطی پہ ہیں – وہ تو ایک ادارہ ہیں – سیاست سے سماجی بہبود اور انفارمیشن ٹیکنالوجی تک علیم خان نے ہر چیز پر اپنے انمٹ نشانات چھوڑے ہیں – ان میں سے کچھ نشانات زمین کے جعلی کاغذات پہ انگوٹھوں کی صورت میں ہیں

پھر خان اعظم کچھ تجاہل سے کام لیتے ہوئے علیم خان (دو بار ستارہ چیری بلاسم ) کی فوجی خدمات پر کچھ اسطرح روشنی ڈالتے ہیں کہ کسی کی سمجھ میں کچھ نہ اسکے “علیم قاف لیگ میں شامل ہونے بھی گئے”

گئے؟ بقول آپکے ، آئیے دیکھتے ہیں اور کون کون کہاں کہاں گئے

Even at that stage, when he was not in PTI, whenever PTI Lahore, under Mahmoodur Rasheed, went to him for help, he always donated generously for PTI’s cause.

یعنی تحریک انصاف اندر کھاتے مشرف کے لوگوں کے پیسوں پہ چل رہی تھی اور عوام میں عمران خان مشرف مخالفت بلکہ لڑائی کا تاثر دے رہے تھے بلکہ یہ کہنا مناسب ہوگا کہ عمران خان مشرف حکومت سے پیسے بٹورنے اسکے بدنام اور ولن صفت وزراء تک کے پاس گئے ، اس کے بعد دھرنے پر گئے، خفیہ شادی کرنے گئے اور تب تک جاتے رہے جب تک علیم خان جیسے پیسے دیتے رہے، ڈی جے بٹ اور صحافیوں کے بلوں کی ادائیگی کیلئے

یہ سلسلہ ابھی تک جاری و ساری ہے

I got to know Aleem Khan when he became a donor for SKMTH and later found out he had been treated and cured at the Hospital. Since I have known Aleem Khan it has also been a process of discovering his many laudable facets, especially his quiet commitment to his many charitable projects. When I began the NAMAL College project he was one of the first few donors and initial donations are always very difficult. He continues to donate generously to SKMTH and recently gave a huge donation to the Peshawar SKMTH project.

یعنی علیم خان فیاضی سے شوکت خانم اور نمل کو دینے، اور بار بار دیتے جانے کی وجہ سے خانصاب کیلئے بقول شخصے وہ تحفه ثابت ہوئے جو تحفے دیتا ہی جاتا ہے – ایک دانا دوست نے ایک بار ایسے ہی گھوڑوں کی وجہ سے کہا تھا کہ “تحفے دینے والے یونانیوں سے ہوشیار” اور اس مخلصانہ مشورے کا صلہ اسے میڈیا سے فالتو بولنے کے الزام میں اسکے عہدے اور بنیادی رکنیت سے محرومی کی صورت میں مل گیا اور پھر اسکی جگہ اس کمتر عقل والے نے لے لی جس نے کہا کہ “تحفے کے گھوڑے کے دانت نہیں گنا کرتے” خانصاب کو یہ بات اسلئے پسند آئی کہ وہ جانتے تھے کہ یہ گھوڑا کس کا تحفه ہے، کہاں کہاں چرتا رہا ہے اور صبح ناشتے میں کتنے مربعے (زرداری کے گھوڑوں والے مربّے نہ سمجھئیے گا) کھاتا ہے

بہرحال شوکت خانم اور نمل بہت اچھے فلاحی منصوبے ہیں جن کا تقابل ایدھی فاونڈیشن، اورنگی پائیلٹ پراجیکٹ اور چھیپا ایمبولینس سے کیا جاسکتا ہے – محروم طبقات کی خدمت کیلئے وقت اور پیسے وقف کرنے کا اپنا اجر ہے – یہ مشکوک سیاست میں کامیابی کا زینہ نہ بنتا ہے اور نہ ہی بنانا چاہئے – بالخصوص جب اس طرح کے عطیات و تحائف کے ہمراہ جعلی زمین کے کاغذات، گولیوں کی آوازیں اور مظلوموں کی آہیں بھی منسلک ہوں – اس صورت میں یہ عطیہ نہیں بلکہ سرمایہ کاری بن جاتا ہے اور ہم جانتے ہیں کہ سرمایہ کار اپنے سرمائے پر منافع مناسب وقت پر ضرور طلب کرتا ہے – فی الحال خان صاحب کے خیال میں کے پی حکومت کے وسائل ہی ایسی چیز ہیں جو معاوضے میں پیش کیے جاسکتے ہیں

شوکت خانم کیلئے ویسے بھی نیک تمنائیں ہونی چاہئیں، کیونکہ یہ وہ منصوبہ ہے کہ جس کیلئے نواز شریف نے مفت زمین مختص کی – شہباز شریف جب جلاوطنی میں تھے اور انہیں اسکے فنڈز میں کمی کا پتا چلا تو انہوں نے فوراً مطلوبہ رقم مہیا کی – یہ وہی نمل کالج ہے جس کیلئے شہباز شریف کی پنجاب حکومت نے تنقید کے باوجود ہزار ایکڑ زمین مختص کی – یہاں پر یہ ذکر بےمحل نہیں کہ شریف خاندان کے اپنے فلاحی ادارے شریف میڈیکل سٹی اور اتفاق ہسپتال موجود ہیں – اسکے باوجود ہم نے ابھی تک میاں نواز شریف یا ایدھی کو خط کے ذریعے اپنے کسی مہرباں کو انتخابی ٹکٹ دلواتے یا اپنے منصوبے کو اپنی سیاسی تقاریر یا انتخابی مہم کا حصہ بناتے نہیں دیکھا

Aleem also runs one of the best orphanages in Lahore and is now setting up a Special Children’s school Rising Sun.

ایاز صادق بذات خود بھی این اے ایک سو بائیس میں دہائیوں سے فلاحی منصوبے چلا رہے ہیں جن سے علاقے کے لوگ بخوبی واقف ہیں مگر کبھی انکا ذکر انکی تقاریر کا حصہ نہیں بنا – کیا انکے فلاحی اقدامات انہیں دو مرتبہ الیکشن میں ہرا کے توہین عمرانی کے مجرم ہونے کی سزا سے بچا سکتے ہیں؟ غالباً نہیں – انکی عاجزانہ شخصیت کے علاوہ انکے فلاحی کام بھی انکی اس حلقے میں مقبولیت کے اسباب میں شامل ہیں

مگر ایاز صادق نے کبھی اپنی اس شہرت کو پراپرٹی قبضوں کیلئے استعمال نہیں کیا مگر عمران خان کی متوازی دنیا میں فلاحی منصوبے جب تک سیاست کو جلا نہ بخشیں، انکا ڈھنڈورا نہ پیٹا جائے اور نہ ہی انکی تصاویر سے مزین ہوں کوئی حیثیت ہی نہیں رکھتے

کیمرہ، ایکشن جائے نماز تو آپکو معلوم ہی ہے

PTI’s founding member and ideological father, the late Ahsan Rasheed took me several times to persuade Aleem Khan to join PTI. Sadly when he chose to do so, a malicious campaign started against him.

یعنی مشرف کے اقتدار اور اسکے بعد کے سالوں میں بھی علیم خان کا ضمیر کوما سے نہیں جاگا اور انہیں تحریک میں شامل ہونے پہ نہیں اکساتا رہا

Aleem Khan stood by my side and challenged anyone to produce a substantive case against him. Three people came forward but all three were proven wrong.

ثبوتوں کی بات نہیں کم از کم آپ کو زیب نہیں دیتی خان صاحب – واقعی

کیونکہ ثبوت ایک ایسی چیز ہیں کہ جن کی وجہ سے آپ اپنے دو سال کے مطالبے پر بننے والے کمیشن سے ہی بھاگ نکلے تھے کیونکہ وہاں جج آپ کی زبان مبارک سے زیادہ ثبوتوں کے ماننے والے تھے بلکہ انہوں نے آپ کے نوبیاہتا ہونے پر بھی ترس نہ کھایا نہ آپکے ورلڈ کپ اور ہسپتال پر بلکہ بد لحاظی سے ثبوت مانگتے رہے حالانکہ کوئی لحاظ ہوتا ہے کوئی ……… ہوتی ہے، کوئی ………….ہوتی ہے

لیکن خدا کا شکر ہے کہ یہ ایسے بےمروت ججوں کی عدالت نہیں ہے بلکہ اپنا جوڈیشل کمیشن، اپنا الیکشن کمیشن اور اپنا ٹریبونل ہے (وجیہہ الدین کے بعد) اور یہاں سبھی دیانتدار لوگ ہیں – اسی لئے جب میں علیم خان اور کیس کنٹینر میں تین رکنی ٹریبونل کے سامنے لیکر گیا جس میں جہانگیر ترین، اسکا گلف سٹریم جیٹ اور پارک ویو سوسائٹی کا نقشہ شامل تھا تو ان تینوں نے بیک زبان اسے بیگناہ اور الزامات کو بے بنیاد قرار دیا – میں تینوں مدعیوں کے بولنے کا انتظار کرتا رہا – یہاں تک کے عمران اسماعیل ان تینوں کے اوپر بیٹھ کر انکی حوصلہ افزائی کرتا رہا مگر انکے منہ سے لایعنی چیخ و پکار کے علاوہ کچھ نہ نکلا – اسکے بعد تو اتنے صاف ستھرے آدمی کو فنانس سیکرٹری مقرر کرنا بنتا تھا – البتہ مجھے اس موقعے پہ جہانگیر ترین اور علیم خان کے آنکھ میچنے کی سمجھ نہیں آئی –

Perhaps the biggest proof of his innocence, which all Insafians should note, is that the Sharif brothers, who are masters of political victimization through the use of government resources including the police, for the last seven years, have tried and failed to prove anything against Aleem Khan.

ہممم – “باوجود کوشش کے کچھ نہ ثابت کرسکے” آیئے دیکھتے ہیں کیا کمزور جمہوریت اور عدلیہ کا کسی بوٹوں کے فرنٹ مین پراپرٹی ٹائیکون کے خلاف کوئی کاروائی نہ کرنا “معصومیت” کی دلیل ہے
“باوجود کوشش کے کچھ نہ ثابت کرسکے” کے جہاز پر اور بھی بہت لوگ سوار ہیں مثلا ً پرویزالٰھی، شجاعت حسین، شیخ رشید، پرویز مشرف، آصف زرداری یہاں تک کہ شریف برادران بھی – کیا یہ سب بھی آپ کے اس پیمانے پر بیگناہ اور مقدس ہوجائیںگے؟

آپکا سب سے بڑا دشمن، جس نے بقول آپکے آپکا سب کچھ چرا لیا، اسکے بارے میں تو آپ کمیشن میں ایک لفظ نہ کہہ سکے بلکہ الزام تو درکنار اب تو اسکا نام بھی آپ نہیں لیتے الٹا اس نے آپ پر ہرجانے کا دعوا کیا ہوا ہے جسکا عدالت میں سامنا کرنے سے آپ گریزاں ہیں وہ بھی آپکی اس تعریف کے لحاظ سے بیگناہ بلکہ محترم اور پارٹی میں شامل کیے جانے کے قابل ہے –

For those Insafians who did not know, it was Aleem Khan who headed my NA 122 campaign in 2013 along with Shoaib Siddiqui and Mian Aslam – while I was busy with the national campaign and then immobilised because of my accident.

ایک منٹ ٹھہرئیے، کیا آپ این اے ایک سو بائیس میں ہارے نہیں، بلکہ اس حلقے سے ستانوے، دوہزار دو میں بھی اور پھر دو ہزار تیرہ میں بھی؟ ہارنے میں تو آپکو علیم خان کی مدد کی ضرورت نہیں خصوصاً جب آپ ستانوے اور دو ہزار دو میں اپنے زور بازو پہ ہار چکے ہوں اور آپ تو الیکشن سے صرف تین دن پہلے گرے اور چوبیس گھنٹے پہلے مہم ختم ہوجانے کی وجہ سے علیم خان نے دو دنوں میں ایسا کیا جادو کیا ہوگا سوائے رقم خرچنے کے جس کے آپ اتنے احسان مند ہوگئے
بلکہ دیکھا جائے تو یہ اپنی ناکامی علیم خان کے نام بالکل اسی طرح لگانے کی کوشش ہے جیسی آپ نے ہری پور کی حالیہ شکست کی ذمہ داری قومی بھابی پہ ڈال کے کی ہے – این اے ایک سو بائیس میں علیم خان کی شکست کی صورت میں آپ کے ضمنی انتخاب ہارنے والے مالدار کلب میں ایک رکن کا اضافہ ہوجائیگا جس کی دولت سے آگے کی مہمات کو ایندھن فراہم کیا جائیگا

So I ask all Insafians, who can be more qualified that Aleem Khan to contest on the NA 122 ticket? Here is a man who gives so much to charity and is a clean success story in his business. He is also a man who stayed loyal to PTI despite not being given a ticket in the GE 2013.

اسلئے میں تمام انصافیوں سے پوچھتا ہوں کہ علیم خان کے سوا اور کون میری جگہ پہ قربانی دینے کا حقدار بنتا ہے – یہ وہ آدمی ہے جس نے مختصر عرصے میں بیشمار لوگوں سے اتنا پیسہ کما لیا ہے کہ میرا سوچ کے ہی سر گھوم جاتا ہے – اسکے بھتے میرا مطلب ہے خیرات کی کہانی مثالی ہے – اسکی بزنس میں کامیابی بھی مثالی ہے – یہ وہ آدمی ہے جو دو ہزار تیرہ کے الیکشن میں ٹکٹ نہ ملنے کے باوجود تحریک سے وفادار رہا، ان ریٹائر جنرلز کی طرح نہیں جو بعد میں نہ صرف کنٹینر پہ ذلیل کرتے رہے بلکہ فون سننے سے بھی انکاری ہوگئے
اسلئے اب دیکھو میرے انصافینز کچھ ترس کھاؤ

All those involved in running a smear campaign against him are not Insafians. Rather, they are the Trojan horses, the fifth columnists in our midst and they are a greater danger to PTI than our external enemies and rivals.

Aleem Khan Housing PTI KPK

(Aleem Khan is shown in the the picture sitting with CM discussing housing schemes in KPK.)

اسلئے جو بھی اسکے خلاف شرمناک مہم چلا رہے ہیں وہ انصافین نہیں – میں ان سے پوچھتا ہوں کہاں ہے تمہارا کنٹینر، کہاں ہے تمہارا ڈی جے بٹ، کہاں ہے خالی کرسیوں کا ٹھاٹھیں مارتا سمندر اور ہر کسی کو دنگے فساد کی مضحکہ خیز دھمکیاں – اگر یہ سب نہیں تو پھر تم کیسے انصافین ہو

تم لوگ تو بات بے بات عمران خان کی تعریف میں سجدے میں گر جانے والے ٹویٹر کے یوتھئیے بھی نہیں ہو تم صرف اس مہان قائد کو سر درد دینے والے غدار ہو اور کچھ نہیں

I appeal to everyone to come together and close ranks. We are confronting the PMLN government with its abuse of state power including the misuse of the police and development funds to indulge in electoral match fixing. This is the time for all Insafians to stand with all our PTI candidates as they contest bye-elections. This is what I expect from them.

— Imran Khan

میں تم سب سے اکٹھے ہوکر مجھے بچانے کی اپیل کرتا ہوں – دور افق پہ بیستی نمودار ہورہی ہے – ہمیں میڈیا میں نہیں بلکہ ہری پور کی طرح کھلے میدان میں ووٹروں کا مقابلہ درپیش ہے – میری کرکٹ کی تمام اصطلاحات لایعنی اور ناکارہ ہوچکی ہیں
اور شاعر جو مرضی کہتا رہے اپریل نہیں بلکہ اکتوبر کا مہینہ ظالم ہے – اکتوبر ننانوے میں ہی نواز شریف کا تختہ الٹ کر ایک صالح جنرل آیا تھا جس نے مجھے گلے لگا کر خانوں کا خان بنانے کا وعدہ کیا تھا مگر اسکے بعد کتنے اکتوبر آئے گئے مگر وہ دن نہ آیا اب تو صرف شرم آتی ہے – اسلئے اس اکتوبر کو اپنے خان اور اسکی بھابھی میرا مطلب ہے اپنی بھابھی کو ایک اور ظالم اکتوبر نہ بنانا – ہمیں یہ سیٹ جیتنی ہے – اگر آپ یہ سوچتے ہیں کہ آپکا خان مکمل بیستی پروف ہے تو یہ آپکی محبت ہے – کبھی کبھی میں بھی مسلسل بیستی سے تنگ آجاتا ہوں – کیا میں اتنا برا ہوں ماں؟

ان گرمیوں کی ناخوشگوار سیاہ راتوں میں بنی گالہ کے لان میں شیرو کے ہمراہ کرسی پر بیٹھے بیٹھے جب ہوا چلتی ہے اور دور مارگلہ کی پہاڑیوں میں کوئی تنہا بھیڑیا چلاتا ہے تو شیرو کی گردن سہلاتے ہوئے آپکا خان بہت سی چیزوں کے بارے میں سوچتا ہے اور پھر پرامید نظروں سے آسمان کی طرف دیکھتا ہے بالکل پوسٹر پہ لگی تصویروں کی طرح – آپکا خان کنٹینر والے دنوں، این اے ایک سو بائیس، بارہ اکتوبر انیس سو ننانوے، بارہ اکتوبر دو ہزار پندرہ، مہربان جنرل اور اسکی جادوئی جپھی اور پھر این اے ایک سو بائیس کے بارے میں سوچتا ہے

تو کیا ایسے میں ایک غدار نمکین آنسو کرخت مگر خوبصورت چہرے پر سے پھسلتا ہوا کسی کے کالر کو نم نہیں کردیتا؟

یقیناً، یقیناً ایسا ہی ہوتا ہے
