To Ali Dayan: You could have named me, dude!

by admin

Here is how Ali Dayan Hasan of Human Rights Watch refers to and condemns me in his interview with Global Observatory. You could have named me, dude!

Interview with Ali Dayan Hasan, Pakistan Director, Human Rights Watch
October 20, 2011

Interestingly, Ali Dayan is all praise for social media in Arab Middle East but is a bit concerned about its misuse in Pakistan.


AW: Moving on to a different type of media, what role do you see social media playing in Pakistani society? Are youths in Pakistan using Facebook and Twitter to the same extent as their peers in other parts of the world, and are they using social media for political purposes?

AH: I think social media is increasingly important within the Pakistani context, but there is an important distinction between the use of social media, in, say, the Arab world during the Arab Spring, and in a place like Pakistan. Arabic is one of the languages of the Internet. Arabic is also the principal language of countries in the Arab world. Now, this is not the case in a country like Pakistan where there isn’t linguistic uniformity. And also, the capacity to communicate through the Internet is limited, because of limited software in the Urdu language, and limited awareness of the Latin script, which is used otherwise to do it.

However, Twitter certainly is something that is very, very useful. It’s a very useful medium. It is certainly something that many of us are using, and it is a great tool of quick information dissemination in real-time. Of course, because Pakistan is a quick learner in many ways, mediums like Twitter are also being used by people to spread an anti-rights agenda, to spread disinformation. You find a whole subculture of people on Twitter who refer to themselves as Twitter activists. Nobody knows who these people actually are, and they will use the language of human rights and the rule of law to actually spread anti-rights agendas to discredit bona fide human rights organizations.

@Laibaah1 Ejaz Haider serves his masters, Dayan serves his own. Both are PAID. They remain professional, not passionate! Why be personal?

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 For them their lifestyle is foremost. Their interests converge! They have same social circle and attend same parties!

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq Those (Ali Dayan, Beena Sarwar, Traitor) witch hunting me show no interest in witch-hunting the killers of Shias & the Baloch.

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq Instead of criticizing Ejaz Haider and other known lackey of the deep state, Ali Dayan chose to attack me in his interview. Priorities!

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
These people have done a great disservice to us. Lemme recount them.
1. These people have hijacked the liberal currents in societies and separated it from the masses. Distance b/w Aitchison and Dhaaba
2. They have highlighted non-issues and deliberately ignored real issues taking them out of the public sphere.
3. They support the power structures by venting out the public frustration and not allowing it to be expressed against the rulers
4. They have arrogated themselves the championship of rights and moralities, and then using their position, they obfuscate truths

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq I warn all social media activists, a traitor is always a traitor. That person will soon leak your secrets, don’t trust him!

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq In this land of the naive, the compromised and the career-oriented, it is important for us to stay as a team.

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 my post wouldn’t have been without your input and support. it was a team-post, not an individual one.

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq Your post has done a great deal in exposing the traitors within fake liberal class, including Shia traitors.

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 Across the globe, while faking as civil society, these people have in fact acted as second-tier of the state and strengthened it

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 This is very disturbing. Ironically, it is one of those truths I am glad I know, and I wish I had never known.

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq Three such names come to mind: a Hazara activist (agent of Abdul Khaliq Hazara), a Toori Shia, and a former member of LUBP. I personally know how an ex LUBP editor fed disinformation about my identity via Beena Sarwar, Ali Dayan, Urooj Zia etc.

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq I could not agree more. Unfortunately some critics within our own ranks took this opportunity to jump into the Dayanian boat.

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 We shouldn’t complain about Dayan types – they r PAID 4 their work. We should expose thm & deprive thm of the fake moral pedestal

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq They use multiple obfuscations and methods to hide the identity of the killers (ISI-LeJ-TTP) and the killed (Shia Muslims).

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 This liberal mafia is in fact a co-opted lot that always serves both the domestic and international power structures

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq Fair enough. This also reflects the morality those whose behaviour and stance visibly changed upon being approached by him.

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 A pimp is never fettered by morality – his only concern is the ‘selling’ value of a ‘subject’. Why complain?

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@maryamushtaq In his interview, Ali Dayan is visibly concerned about “innocent victims” of drone attacks, no such concern for Shia massacre by DS?

maryamushtaq Marya Mushtaq
@Laibaah1 Disinformation isn’t Ali Dayan’s problem. He has issues with his personality cult being violated. It has gotten to his head. Next he might say “I look like Al Pacino in Devil’s Advocate” & they insult me?

Laibaah1 Laibaah
Did anyone notice the word “bona fide human rights organizations” and Ali Dayan’s concern that some people are discrediting the bona fide?

Laibaah1 Laibaah
Ali Dayna says: In Pakistan “mediums like Twitter are also being used by people to spread an anti-rights agenda, to spread disinformation.”

Laibaah1 Laibaah
@AliImtiaz4 LOL. I don’t belong to his class. The subaltern is always unknown, ignored and ridiculed.

AliImtiaz4 Ali Imtiaz
@Laibaah1 He couldn’t name you because he knew you would get more famous then.

Laibaah1 Laibaah
Ali Dayan Hasan of @hrw refers to and condemns yours truly Laibaah in his interview. You could have named me, dude!
