Alright my friends, the game of chess being played between the Mullahs of Lal Masjid and government is coming to a conclusion with the government making all the wrong moves and the mullahs holding all the key pieces. The victory of the mullahs is a couple of moves away.
” Chaudhry Shujaat, who has the government’s mandate to resolve the issue through dialogue, held on Tuesday night his second meeting in three days with Maulana Abdul Aziz and Maulana Abdur Rashid Ghazi, the heads of the two institutions, to exchange views with them and find a way out of the crisis.
According to the sources, he promised to the two Maulanas that the seven mosques demolished by the Capital Development Authority as unauthorised structures would be rebuilt.” (DAWN April 11, 07)
The city of Islamabad is no stranger to chess. Since its birth it has witnessed many such games and have seen power changing hands in a couple of moves but this new game is by far the most important one so far. This game has the power to change the political scene of Pakistan for generations to come since the stakes are too high. The future economy, defense, culture and progress are all on the line where the winner takes all.
The inability of our government to face the issues head on had been legendary even before the current government took residence in the foothills of Margala Hills but Mushy Brigade may go down in history as the most gutless bunch ever to hold power in Islamabad. The government’s failure to expose the true faces of these mullahs gave them a shot of encouragement and an opportunity to gain public support for their agenda in the name of religion. By caving in to their demands to reconstruct seven “ILLEGALLY” built mosques, the government has shown its weakness one more time and has presented its jugular to the Mullahs.
So my friends, if any of you are planning on grabbing public land, building without permits on the illegally grabbed land, taking possession of a public library by force, threatening law abiding businessmen, kidnapping, torturing and illegally detaining citizens of Pakistan, calling for suicide bombings in the capital or getting your car confiscated because illegal weapons are found in it; I beg you to do so in the name of Islam so you can negotiate with the president of the ruling political party and ask for even more. If you don’t you might end up with a nice 9mm hole in your chest.
