In Response To: Pakistan on auction ( Saeed A. Malik, Multan)

Esteemed Dr. Shabbir Sahib,

Saeed Malik is a very versatile
analyst. He is a true patriot and
nationalist with deep concern for the
unremitting crisis Pakistani
nation is steeped in since its
existence.
He has proffered some very potent
measures for remedying the bizarre
and deteriorating national fabric at
the hands of the corrupt lot and
the band of thugs, ruling the roost
alternately.
Mr. Malik puts the entire onus either
on the judiciary or the army to
set the rudder right in Pakistan and to
stem the downfall. But it
seems a tall order.
First of all Mr. Malik believes that
the armed forces and the
judiciary are embodiment of ideal
virtues and goals. This is not the
situation in Pakistan. We have
witnessed the army rule quite a few
times but ultimately it bounced back
with failures and drawback
denting the democratic fabric of
Pakistan.
To my understanding there should be
grass-root revolution that should
unhinge the established order based
upon loot, plunder and
exploitation by the elite classes one
of which is the feudalism,
landed gentry and fiefdoms of lands.
These are subjugating the Haris
and farm labor as their personal
servants for ages now. They hold the
political power and keep coming back
into the power corridors with the
votes of their enslaved labor
consisting of families.
These people also delve in politics and
have nexus with the
industrialists who also keep the labor
classes bondage and with no
benefits to the laboring families as we
can find in the developed
countries.
So, it is fundamentally a question of
demolishing the brutal and
exploitative class structure and to
make the whole system whether
political, industrial, social or
agricultural free of the bondage of
the poor and deprived sections by the
elite classes.
I am alluding to such monumental
transformation that happened in
France and at the same time in the
newly emerging United States some
two hundred years ago. As long the
political and social milieu is
hostage to the elite classes and groups
there can be no hope of any
radical change in our system for the
betterment of the country or the
people.
For once let us quote India. In the
early days after partition the
Indian pristine leaders abolished
States owned by Nawabs as well as
huge monopolies of land and
agriculture. That is what is needed in
Pakistan in order to back the break of
the powerful, elite and
privileged cartels.
One such powerful cartel comprises of
the religious bands who are
endeavoring to take over state and
capture the power for making
Pakistan an orthodox religious state.
If they succeed it would be
disastrous and spell doom for the
integrity of Pakistan and its
liberal, democratic and secular
profile.

Respectfully,
Saeed Qureshi
