I am not so pessimistic about the reversal. Let's have some perspective. The TLP and their ideological cousins are essentially cowards and don't have the stomach the take on the might of the Pakistani state once a decision is made. Egypt had a more ideologically sound and determined religion based movement but that got sorted out.People like us are few and far between brother. We lost Pakistan as soon as TTP started their campaign. This is a slow grind down to the depths of hell.
But we need to look back at the role of the media and opportunist politicians who stabbed Musharraf in the back when he finally launched the Lal Masjid operation in 2007. We need to look at those opportunist politicians--including Imran Khan--who supported the I-know-all corrupt, meddling Chief Justice of Pakistan Ch. Iftikhar in 2007. Those two events played a huge rule in causing anarchy in Pakistan. There should never again be a repeat of such media and political class collusions in matters which are critical for Pakistan's progress.
