Respect is for those who deserve it, not those who demand it.But overall this is a good law. To reign in left wing, right wing and all other such 5th columns.
I believe there is great merit in your theory.@krash Based upon what you said I have a theory(and nothing more) interpreting your post that the law was pushed under the guise of silencing PTM and their ilk with 50% unwitting and others coerced into getting it out there. The net result however is that essentially Pakistan today is no different in heading towards a power situation resembling Myanmar. With a civilian government serving nothing more than a zoom filter for the military leadership who consider no one their intellectual equal in ruling/running the country.
However, this isn’t some malevolent cabal but rather individuals with Pakistan’s interest which are by serendipity also their own interests. Interests seen within their own lens of their military background, seeing the bad corruption of the two dynasty parties while their own internal elitism and “minor” good corruption is deserved since they went to Siachen while these bloody civilians don’t.
Even within these top individuals it is likely only 4 had the initial idea to protect their interests and got buy in from the majority at the round table to make this happen.
unfortunately, both the military-nationalists here and outside of PDF seem to think critique of executives actions means critique of the entire employee pool and the entire parent company itself.
Hence as the law states - if Pakistan was Microsoft then critique of the Division VP and leadership of the defender antivirus means insult to not just them but every employee in that division and insult to all holistic Microsoft!
Again, it is a theory and not an accusation - lest I find myself jailed because some “mohibul fauj ibne watan” misinterprets this - after all, under this law one could say that the repeated red and white stripes painted on the curb near the offices of DHA Karachi are odd and be jailed for it.
I would go further and say Pakistan is already there, and has been for some time. And will stay there.The net result however is that essentially Pakistan today is no different in heading towards a power situation resembling Myanmar. With a civilian government serving nothing more than a zoom filter for the military leadership who consider no one their intellectual equal in ruling/running the country.
