DOWN WITH PLUTOCARACY AND CRONYISM

I don’t mince my words, and I don’t lie as far as my core beliefs are concerned. I honestly believe that the Constitution under which Pakistan is being run, if not replaced, re-examined, or re-shaped as early as possible, is going to cause an explosion in times to come that may shake the foundations of this country. Though it is enthusiastically called the heart and soul of Democracy, it was created by a coterie of interest-groups that wanted this country to become a bastion of various categories and brands of plutocracy.
It may sound a harsh statement, but this Document known as 1973 Constitution is an agreement between wealthy and powerful classes of various regions of the country to rule the masses with mutual consent in the name of Democracy.
In the hands of Mian Nawaz Sharif and company this document has become the Bible of Cronyism. What has this Constitution given this country?
Two powerful ruling families that bring to mind the Mafia families of Sicily. And of course Asfandyar Wali Khan and Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the other symbols of dynastic supremacy.
In this context, I will not hesitate to state that General Pervez Musharraf acted as a SAVIOUR when he toppled Mian’s regime in October 1999. But he acquired the dimensions of a great VILLAIN when he failed to bury plutocracy and its powerful beneficiaries.
Another act of villainy against Pakistan and her people was committed when the LORDS who came to power as a result of 2008 elections joined hands to induct the so-called 18th amendment in the 73 constitution—so as to give the state a totally Cronyistic Character.
It is time to make the skies of Pakistan to echo with one CRY.
