Adil Najam

Aitizaz Ahsan, flaws and all, has become the voice of the moment. The voice of a generation. This voice, which has become my voice and, maybe, yours speaks more passionately in the idiom of poetry than in the idiom of prose. It speaks most passionately in this poem – Kal, Aaj and Kal – that reflects his thoughts on current issues after his recent release.

Listen for yourself. And listen again. It is worth pondering upon. Worth thinking about.

Aik muhazzab quom ko, daikho, khod hum nay badnaam kiya hai

Part II here:

There are so many thoughts, so many lines, so many ideas, so many metaphors here that I would love to comment upon. But poetry is better listened than dissected. So listen, friends. And ponder yourself. Share your thoughts. But even if you choose not to, please, do think.

Note: Thanks to the various readers – 6 and counting – who have alerted me to this.

    This was her’s

    Khalistan was only one of the issues among 9 major
    problemetics coming from BB,
    5 were major financial frauds, corruption, money laundering in /outside the country
    3 were security risk including external agencies,
    1 was denouncing rather
    surrendering Khalistan to India,
    4 other denouncing & sabotaging international aid programs for Pakistan, related to UNO, USA and EU
    3 other similar cases related to Arab Emirates
    1 with Saudis , but they refuted her and threatened her !

    Bad governance on part of the PPP and PML-N, or their noticing bad governance and lawlessness when not in power, is no justification for Martial Law… they could have governed wonderfully well but the Jackboots would have invaded Islamabad sooner or later… PPP 2 (1998-1990) did not fall because of corruption, but BB’s refusal to cooperate with the brass hats on the Khalistan issue… PML-N 1 fell because of NS getting too big for his shoes, as far as the Establishment, personified by GIK, was concerned… and PML-N 2 (1997-1999) was dismissed because of NS’s decision to call back the troops from Kargil once he discovered the extent of Musharraf’s shenanigans…

    In the immortal words of an anonymous General in Christina Lamb’s “Waiting for Allah”, “We are just letting the children play for a little while”…
