Today’s episode of Jirga with Saleem Safi.
We don’t need to build dams and reservoirs for managing our natural resources; we don’t need schools and teachers for our children and hospitals for the poor. Our all- weather friends are China and Saudi Arabia. Never mind that China doesn’t help us much when we are ravaged by earthquakes and floods or when we are short of cash to pay our foreign bills. NEVER MIND that Saudi Arabia treats our migrant workers like slaves, rents our military to crack down on Shia majorities in Bahrain and exports extremist “Islam” to our lands. At the end of the day, who eats grass when we rise to defend our sovereignty? Not our pot- bellied traders and businessmen. Not our golf- playing generals. Not our Defence Housing Society residents. Not our foreign- asset holding politicians whose kids go to English- medium private schools at home and abroad. Not our self-righteous media Mughals who berate our slavish black- skins and white masks. Not our corrupt judges and civil servants. It’s the wretched of the earth, the poorest of the poor, who eat grass
Saleem Saafi, another recently became yellow journalist, now he is also in line of fire, but on otherside, like najam sethi, israr aalam, abida hussain etc. Please google and find out how much money is allocated by foriegn for our journalists?? We have so many mir jaffirs and mir sadiqs not just in one department, but all walk of life, you will find them. That is why in 2001 an american official said that Pakistanis can sell their mothers for dollars.
