The deeds of the Pakistan Army are known to all. From butchering Bengalis in West Pakistan to funding terrorists for the purpose of bleeding India to their ongoing genocide of Balochis in Balochistan, the Pakistan Army has conducted the gravest of human rights violations for many decades and yet has never been made accountable by any major world power or international organisation.
Yet sometimes, words can be enough to bring a rogue entity to task and to thoroughly expose it. This is what the daughter of a prominent Pakistani politician did. She uploaded a video to her Twitter account in which she thrashed the Pakistan Army for its misdeeds. As was expected, the video soon disappeared along with her Twitter account.
Imaan Mazari, daughter of a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shireen Mazari, uploaded the video ‘criticizing the role of the army in the Faizabad sit-in and the aftermath of a botched operation by the federal government’.The Faizabad sit-in involved thousands of Islamists almost blocking the main routes to Islamabad-Rawalpindi, protesting what they saw as a lax response to so-called blasphemy. It ended with the Pakistani government caving in to the Islamists’ demand that the law minister – an alleged blasphemer – quits.
It was soon revealed by Tehreek-i-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi who was one of those Islamists that it was the Army which has ensured that the government met the protesters’ terms. In another video recently gone viral on social media, a Pakistani army officer was seen distributing money apparently to some of the Islamists for their role.
She says in her video: “Shame on the army because Pakistan Army only understands language used by terrorists like Khadim Hussain Rizvi.We should also use the same language and send message to army. Such force should be condemned for funding people who have always tried to promote terrorism in Islamabad and the rest of Pakistan. I condemn the army who disrespects our martyrs who laid their lives for fighting against terrorism.”
She added: “The army funds terrorists for making people’s lives a hell. I again condemn the army as they still don’t understand that supporting terrorism is destroying this country. Pakistan community has now become effigy on the hands of terrorists. They discuss, accept terrorists demand. Is this our country, our community? This force has destroyed this country.”
Her statement at the end of the video is the highlight. She says there is no difference between the Pakistan Army and terrorists. One has to applaud her guts to come out and speak the truth against an institution that is stronger than any political party and even bigger than the judiciary.
Here’s a YouTube link to her video (postcard.news does not verify the video’s authencity) –
