Political Agent is whole responsible of high tension in Parachinar.

Parachinar the capital of The Kurram Agency on the Pakistan Afghanistan bordered area is once again in news across the country while post election protests and sit-ins continues. Woman are protesting for their political right to vote while rigging and un-follow the code of conduct allegations has been filed in election commission of Pakistan and other concern institutions by Rt Air Marshal Sayyed Qaisar Hussain the independent contender of the constituency NA37 supported by PPP.
The political agent who is the returning officer of the constituency too congratulate Rt Air Marshal Sayyed Qaisar Hussain and the only Pashto news channel AVT Khyber announce him is a winner, an hour later the scenario changed the Geo Television announced Sajid Hussain Turi the ex MNA from the same constituency leading the poll and subsequently win by narrowly 900 votes.
Let me clear that no doubt that there is written agreements between parties and tribes across country specially KPK to ban the women from the right of vote and I am proudly saying that the Kurram Agency is not one of those. Women of the constituency voted and there was no ban from any party and tribe exist in the agency, but the women are now protesting that their CNIC were taken from them and polled forcefully to the opposite contender which they were not going to vote for, They are protesting for sixth consecutive day that their mandate has been hijacked and steal away. It is not matter of win or lose it is matter of shame in a tribal region where women are very much empowered but they has been humiliated casting their vote.
The other side of the image is that the women of the tribe were never protested where they were humiliated and killed by Taliban in five years long war, where their brothers and fathers their husbands and sons were butchered and beheaded by Taliban. What is the motive behind the protest this time where the tribe is deeply divided on intra sectarian bases which is well known in the agency.
Out of the blame game The Markaz namely Anjuman e Hussainiya is always on the fore front of political scene in the agency is holding responsible of the worse situation is not the only reason there are other factors fueling the conflict. The responsible of the murder of the two protesters, the ones who fired on the Markazi Imambargah, the ones who fired on Ex IG Irshad Hussain, Doctor Mujahid Hussain and the ones who fired on the youth parliamentarian Mr Shahid Hussain Kazmi car must brought to justice. It is time for a highly empowered Jirga to be form of the concern tribes to negotiate to end the leadership crisis and defuse tension between the tribes.
The Political Agent and other agencies serving for their strategic depth are wholly and souly responsible for the crisis and tensions and there are signs of inner hands to breakdown the unity of the tribe in the agency who fought bravely in the five years war with Taliban and defeated them badly and force them out agency.

Why I support PML_N and PTI

PTI and PML_N will lose their credibility in days?

By Shafique Ahmed Madani

11th May 2013 a landmark for Pakistan comes across ends with mixture of  mandate in three provincial assemblies and a simple majority for PML_N in the national assembly. No doubt in a diverse cultured country like Pakistan it is a sign of great success to have an election after five years of bloodbath across Pakistan, all parts of Pakistan from Khyber to Karachi and Parachinar to Quetta  witnessed mass suicide, sectarian, ethnic and targeted  killings include our law enforcement agencies paid a heavy price and thousands of their personals shot, butchered and beheaded to death.

The collation government of PPP, PML_Q, ANP, MQM and others parties has completed his five year tenure of democratic mandate given in 2008 national election, while the opposition PML_N, PTI and JI with others opposition parties stage demonstrations at all available forum from the national and provincial assemblies to the streets.

Terrorism, electricity, gas, financial problems disastrous natural storms throughout Pakistan thrice in the five years and never the least bad governance brought the government to defeat and the position wins the hearts and minds of the people by promises, thus the opposition wins and the ruling alliance rejected by the angry crowed throughout Pakistan.

The masses supported the PML_N Nawaz Sharif and PTI handle terrorism, sectarianism and ethnic divisions  their way  and bring back stability home. No one is safe in Pakistan from governor and ministers killings to kidnapping of the high profiles national and internationals personals to the Ex Prime Minister son in a broad daylight.  The nation support them to overcome the shortfall of electricity and make sure the availability of gas to the lower class now, because only the lower class matter in Pakistan now, they have the power the threw away anyone who fail to deliver from PMLQ with Parvez Musharaf  and PPP, ANP, MQM and PMLQ with Asif Ali Zaradri, Yousuf Raza Gilani and Rajah Parvez Ashraf.

Baluchistan: PML_N had a difficult time ahead with two provinces in the opposition hands and forming a balance Government in Baluchistan will be the test case for PML and Sharif brothers, where PMWP has bounced back and Achakzai has the nationalist is looks angry with establishment over the power sharing with the Balochs where both Governor and Chief Ministers has been taken from the Balochs and Pushtuns of the Baluchistan were powerless throughout the last government, don’t forget that the establishment has a huge stick in Baluchistan so farming a government in Baluchistan with different stick holders is tough time testing case for Sharif brothers and company. And the sectarian dimension of the Shia, Hazara tribe and non Baloch killings by different sectarian groups and the Baloch separatists are the real challenges ahead of the so much diluted mandate holder new government.

Sindh: Power struggle in Karachi has begun with PTI claimed a respectable vote bank and grab seats in the political stronghold of MQM. The killing of the PTI voice president Zahra Shahid Hussain will be the turning point of the sectarian, political and ethnic target killings in the metropolitan city where Imran Khan hold direct Altaf Hussain responsible of the killing of their provincial voice president which has been denied by MQM and a legal notice has been sent to the PTI,s Imran Khan. The PPP and PML_N watching and waiting for the benefits but if political measures didn’t taken at once there will be lose lose situation in the 200 million crowded city which definitely will affect the whole country because as we all know the city is the financial capital of Pakistan. In interior Sindh last chance has been given to the PPP for the sake of revival and prove their credibility of governance, for how long they will vote for Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and for how long the PPP will have to beg votes in the name of the martyrs?

Khyber Puthtoon Khwah: The real test for PTI and Imran Khan has begun with winning most of the urban seats of the province and designates their CM with help of JI and QWP of Sherpao. How the PTI, JI and QWP will deal with the Taliban? this is the million Dollar question and for this particular problem the masses of the province voted for PTI, Imran Khan and JI Munawar Hassan who insist to engage in dialogue with Taliban. They also want to withdraws support from the collation of US and Nato forces fighting on the both sides of borders with Taliban beyond boundaries. In the mean time Washington has announced their Drones policy will continue to pound the enemy of US across the border. The silliest statement of CM designate “no enmity with the Taliban” couldn’t not help them while Taliban continue with its bombing Mosques in Malakand killings scores and attacking conveys of law enforcement forces. In the past the government and the Pakistan Army held responsible the Taliban of 50,000 killings of civilians and law enforcement forces personals from the lower rank Sepoy to the top Generals from the police, levies and frontier constabulary to the Pakistan Army. The PTI and JI will not succeed in KPK with their stance of engaging Taliban in dialogue that’s Why I support Pakistan Tahreek e Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League with Jamaat e Islami. Because there is a lot of splinter groups in Taliban and there is no chain of command, all the groups have their own agenda from religious point of view to the tribal and political and different types of smuggling include drugs to kidnapping for ransom.

The establishment of Pakistan is playing on back foot till now and the Supreme Court of Pakistan is watching closely and cautiously with sue motto actions spare in hands. When the election fever cured we will see the actions and reactions of the two most powerful institutions and stamina of PMLN Nawaz Sharif and brothers Shahbaz Sharif and PTI Imran Khan against Supreme Court of Pakistan interference in governance. The supreme court was very much active and there was a tussle between government and the court throughout five years and now it will be the test of Supreme Court of Pakistan to take the government held responsible and take sue motto action against any wrong doing as they did in past.
