Imagine comparing Imran Khan to that Hindu scocerer, Bhutto. Imran Khan has the support of the educated people and is talking about Islamic democracy. Bhutto was popular amongst a few dozen mud people, the sweaty illiterate RAW agents of Sindh who do shirk dancing at shrines in their spare time. Unlike Musharaf who is atleast a brave Ghazi warrior, Bhutto sneaked in through the back door and had the audacity to think he could do something just because a few dozen sweaty, stinking jahil mud people were hynotized to vote for him. Had it not been for these bloody civilian Bhuttos, Imran Khan would have swept the polls in 1996 and 2002. For that matter, imagine comparing Imran Khan’s supporters to those idealistic fools who supported Barack Obama in 2008. Clearly, Imran Khan supporters are far greater in number and far better informed of what their country needs. Not a good comparison Mr. Fulton.
In another article, George made a mistake of including Zaid Hamid, Aamir Liaquat and Bhutto in the same category. Sorry, here I would have to politely disagree with George that including Bhutto with someone as great as Zaid Hamid is an insult to the latter! Aside from the fact that they two are completely different cases, George should not have categorized them like this. Zaid Hamid is a great Islamic scholar who has laid the intellectual groundwork amongst the educated youth for a Theo-Demo-Islamo-Caliphato-Welfare-Riba Free Dar ul Islamic Emirate. Bhutto was just another failed politician who never had any support amongst the masses. He undertook two land reform acts, the second of which initiated tax on the agricultural sector. For doing these silly things, he was finally prosecuted by the law under the great Marxist revolutionary Ghazi, The Greatest, Gen. Zia ul Haq. It was because of this that all the intelligent, loyal, working class heroes like Ghulam Mustafa Khar, Shah Mahmood Qureishi, Mustafa Jatoi, Mumtaz Bhutto, Chaudhary Aitzaz Ahsan, Faisal Saleh Hayat left the Feudal dominated PPP.
Nonetheless, George is completely correct when he says:
“He’s no Taliban supporter or stooge. That is clearly ridiculous.”
Just because Imran Khan wants to talk with these Islamo-Marxist anti-imperialist rebels and just because he countered the Blackwater-RAW-Zionist propaganda against the Taliban does not make him a Taliban supporter or stooge. Actually, Imran Khan should not be ashamed of being called a Taliban Goebbels and should actually be proud of it! George would definitely disagree with the poorly informed liberal fascist, Dr. Taqi when he says:
“These assertions by Mr Khan might even be amusing if he was not capable of even worse assertions. Blaming the US for all ills is one thing, but he has as easily blamed the victims of terrorism. Writing about the Karsaz bombing in ‘Benazir Bhutto has only herself to blame’ (The Telegraph, UK, October 21, 2007), he noted, “I am sorry to say this, but the bombing of Benazir Bhutto’s cavalcade as she paraded through Karachi on Thursday night was a tragedy almost waiting to happen. You could argue it was inevitable…it is different for me campaigning in public, even in the frontier region, because I am not perceived as an American stooge, or a supporter of the war on terror.” Benazir and not the takfiris were to be blamed as per Mr Khan’s views!”
Finally, his brilliant countering of another liberal fascist Prof. Hoodbhoy on Hamid Mir’s show when he questioned Hazrat Imran Khan on Taliban atrocitiesshould lay to rest this silly allegation altogether and those who saw that show should themselves decide whether the good Professor was upto his typical conspiracy theories and that Imran Khan does not support the Taliban or apologize for them or is a stooge for them; he just effectively defends their actions by denying them or brilliantly deflecting them. So not just a cricket great but a potential hockey Olypian too. Now does anyone doubt Imran Khan’s brilliance or Hamid Mir’s journalistic capability. During the interval, the coward professor alleged that Imran Khan threatened to fight him.
Thank you George for debunking the silly notion that Imran Kahn is a Taliban apologist or stooge. The evidence is completely in favour of your arguement.
I am willing to accept George’s very mild criticism of Imran Khan because in this process, he put that tyrant Bhutto in his place. And that is truly an achievement and no one can fault George for jumping on the bandwagon on this one. We all know that in Pakistan, no one can dare critisize Bhutto and Zardari. In the drawing rooms of the educated people who have made a few ruppees on merit, there has been a hushed silence on Bhutto for decades and fear grips anyone before uttering even mild criticism against Bhutto and Zardari. So far these drawing rooms are dominated by liberal fascists who rail against the pious underpaid and impoverished army . For decades we, the educated followers of Jamaat-e-Islami and now Imran Khan romantics have been suppressed by these liberal fascists who when not praising Bhutto and Zardari and cursing the army, break out into heathen acts such as singing and dancing . Just because they have won elections doesn’t mean that the PPP have the right to form the government!
However, into this darkness, I am so glad that George has come out openly against Bhutto.
Further to this, I am so happy that George is not the only one to write original and ground-breaking critiques of our tyrannical rulers. I also have to highlight how a great rebel soul, Cyril Almeida finally came out against Zardari when he wrote the seminal, “Inside Zardari’s Mind“.
When the two PTI jiyalas on Pakistan Press are satisfied with your article, you know have written a great critique of Hazrat Imran Khan.
