Democratic order as manufactured jointly by the CEO of PML (N) private limited and the CEO of the PPPP private limited is definitely lucky that the name of the COAS of the country is not Ghulam Akbar. Or should I say that the COAS of Pakistan happens to be General Qamar Javed Bajwa who has taken upon himself two divergent tasks at a time?
On the one hand General Bajwa is committed to upholding his constitutional responsibilities under Article 6, and let the Democratic order function unhinderedly. And on the other hand he is faced with the challenge of defending his country’s interests against an attack from within on the very ethos, genesis and rationale behind the creation of Pakistan. This challenge gains dangerous dimensions when it is taken into account that the attack on Pakistan ideology and its interests is coming from the man who till recently was third-time Prime Minister of the country and whose personally –controlled political party is ruling the country-and taking it into a direction that can lead to a pitfall.
The manner in which this power-hungry multi-billionaire is running from pillar to post to assault the country’s Judiciary and its National Security—-and the manner in which he is using the resources of the State through his ‘Proxy Government’ to advance his campaign against the Nation’s Core Beliefs, it requires General Qamar Bajwa’s Herculean patience to resist the temptation to hit back.
If I were General Qamar Bajwa, I would by now have found much-deserved and appropriate dungeons for those who have plundered this country, and whose leader the other day was found in the company of Pakistan’s sworn enemies —declaring his ideological affiliation with the heir of the most notorious opponent of the creation of Pakistan—the late Balochi Gandhi.
