He said bajwa Sahab... not Mir jaffar etc.. so stupid move and got banned. Also, IK is banned by some channels anyway.Also no Nawaz Sharif was heavily censored during his speeches mind you, I am yet to see such censorship of Imran Khan's speeches to that extent. Clearly there is a disconnect as to how non compliant with the Establishment they want to be.
The biggest misconception we in Pakistan in general have is that the COAS is the be all end all of the army. That is not the case.
The PSO's, and specifically a core group (depending on many things) is one which determines things, as is the case in the current times as well. Unless you completely replace the top command of the PA, which cannot happen, you cannot just change a COAS and expect whole sale changes, as things currently stand.
That is why, even if Faiz comes, thinking that he would be IK's personal secretary is just foolish thinking.
Bajwa, Raheel Sharif, Musharraf, yeh sab Nawaz Sharif nay hi lagaye thay...and so was Zia handpicked by Bhutto himself.
That is why when you weigh a person's caste, his political subservience to you, and regard him as your servant, rather than judge him purely on his professional capabilities, you get clusterfcks like this. There is now way either RS or QBJ would have become COAS had the latter been considered.
Then sorry to say bro you too fell in the trapI meant N league was playing that game. They aren't simpletons either. Mariam has a big beef with Army, not so long ago she used to threaten them with videos too.
I am well aware of that but from a political point of view, at least they ll be able to tell their khota hor supporters that they took no dictation like the early 90s & are paying a price for being Sher.
Their Supporters in turn would shout Mian sada Sherrr aey, IK gets a compromised election & is quietly bumped off a year or so down the line, all parties involved get a face saving exit, a new song is released & everything is back to normal again.
O' malang, ithe raakh.
Oh that is already well underway.
The old good cop bad cop routine is back in action...will it be successful? I think yes to an extent, but not at the scale it has been before.
N league ka masla yeh hai, at least do maslay, that they are still stuck in the 90's and think strong arm tactics work in this current age of information. They might have the mainstream media bought off to a large extent, but the source of news has changed now and people aren't that gullible.
Secondly, N league is still banking all it's strategy on the good cop bad cop game, and thinks dunya bhi N league ko aisay hi dekhti hai, Nawaz camp and Shahbaz camp. The people view it as PML-N, PML-N took power, they have a PM, they have a CM, they have govt. People don't think Shahbaz Sharif ki hakoomat hai, ya Shahbaz Sharif sab kar raha hai, ya Shahbaz camp hai. That's good for internal party meetings and TV shows, but not the voter. People see PML-N doing whatever it is doing, they don't care what camp it is.
Even some people in my own family, who are of the same boomer mentality, are towing this line now. SOon after the by-election, they said keh Shahbaz Sharif nay tabah kar dia hai, NS ki koi nhn sun raha, jaisay woh mota ganja itna bhola bhala gonglu hai. And even now, they want NS to take the lead and throw Shahbaz under the bus. The person in question reveres NS and Maryam, but hates Shahbaz Sharif! Can you imagine!
Ab aglay haftay you will see the narrative keh Mian sahab ko dhoka ho gaya hai, Shahbaz Sharif and his camp didn't tell the true story to Mian sahab, Shahbaz Sharif nay khud deal ki aur agaya even though Mian sahab was against it, even though I can say this on the basis of 110% confirm news that Mian sahab is calling the shots in each and everything since 2 years, and he is the one who did the deal. Shahbaz Sharif can't go into a political meeting without the nod of NS.
Those people are willing fools, they believe that crap because they want to believe that crap.
But imagine if Establishment is able to see off this upheaval in emotions and manages to manoeuvre their way out like before. They ll have secured the next 20 years at least.
