The Thriving Businesses of FATA

The most flagrant and heinous crime that one could ever think of is the crime that some one commits against ones own country, home land or the people. It is established fact that in FATA, the tribal leaders of area; Maliks and Khans they per purpose want this area to remain as the least developed area. The business they are involved in, thrives, in under developed areas, where common folk are destitute and poverty stricken; area be secluded with no go terrain; with no established road net work system and inaccessible, barren and void of any developed natural resources.

The prevalent hunger in the area makes the people vulnerable and they are ready to do any given job; that is the secret behind the businesses of brutal Maliks and Khans, to exploit the hunger and hire the people on paltry handouts. So these Maliks and khans hire the vulnerable common folks as foot carriers (Lugrees) of their business trade consisting of narcotics and smuggling of all sorts of contraband arms, ammunitions and other weapons as well as smuggling of range of lucrative commodities. Hijacking of dignitaries and other high stake peoples is another good business; hijack them; take them to the interiors of FATA also known as ‘Ilaqa ghair’ and release them on hefty ransoms. Pakistani Ambassador Abdul Aziz to Afghanistan is the latest odious example. He was hijacked and released only, when monies exchanged hands.

Another chapter of FATA business is business of deceit and treason; playing in the hands of foreign interests; and work as their proxy. Many a camps of training and indoctrination to breed terrorists are opened in the name of religious madrassas in FATA and in adjacent areas. Young jobless juveniles are trained and exported to desired destinations. World Super power like USA ambitious plans to advance her hegemonic designs, hems on orchestrating of this atrocious and detestable business of FATA enablers.

Keeping the FATA area as an under developed and under the direct control of federal administration is also on purpose on Pak government level. While India is our arch enemy and will always be; that Geostrategic location of Pakistan vis-à-vis India, dictates it as such. India is an emerging regional power but is a geographical locked country by Himalayas and Indian Ocean all round except its only overland routes open to economic natural resources areas in Middle East and Central Asia through a North West corridor; called Pakistan. So we may always be having trouble induced by India inside Pakistan from Swat to FATA to Chamman to Quetta, Kalat, Bugti Baluchistan and in Gawader. In view of this, Afghanistan as country, forms a part of depth in ‘Pakistan’s Defences’ against India expected onslaught. The well kept porous borders between Pakistan and Afghanistan serves that purpose.

Matter of the fact is that all the countries they do have geostrategic constraints but as long as we have got our own sons, living on this sacred soil ready to accept foreign monies in Baluchistan and FATA and else where; ready to play in the hands of enemies of Pakistan to sacrifice its sovereignty; unity, peace and stability remains a far cry.

Osama- is a friend indeed!

After invasion of Iraq; United States  turned this war into a ‘Global War on Terror’ and as a next stop over of her, is now in occupation of Afghanistan to catch the top man of terror; Osama bin Laden (OBL). US supposedly holds the full command of this country but Osama, his AL Qaeda and all the top commanders are still at large for last many years. Reportedly they are living there in Afghanistan and doing their usual businesses very successfully, right under the noses of US lead NATO forces in the same country, the way they want.

Is it not very surprising? Yes; of course! It is.

But- we don’t want to catch them! Why we will not be catching them? Well, I have to tell you a… little story: Once there was a conference going on, of ‘police heads’ of different countries. The on going discussion was that how early the thugs are caught by police in their respective countries? Country ‘A’ said that they can get hold of the culprit, with in three days of the incident.‘B’ said; well they can do it with in one day. And when the turn of ‘C’ came; ’C’  said; catching of thugs–well no problem. We will be knowing this plan, three days earlier… before the very incident happens. How come – asked every body? The reply was; ‘Because the theft… we carry out our selves’.

Keeping all the purported Terrorism of OBL on one side.  Let there, no harm comes to Osama. He is the best US loyal friend; carrying out, all the good jobs! Only he has been made to sit out there in the wilderness, for a specific purpose! Poor man; what a cost that he is paying even in his frail old age while he is suffering from his kidney troubles also.

The Osama bin laden happens to be the chieftain of all the proxies, ever fostered by US in the recent history; followed by others, like Saddam Hussein in Iraq, who fought an 8 long years war of attrition against Iran to deplete Iran and soften up the grounds for US; but later Saddam was silenced for good… for the benefits of many more. There is Musharraf in Pakistan, who kept the purported monster of terrorism live on Afghan-Pakistan border; in order to justify US operation against the terror and also prolong US stay in the areas of interest. Lately Musharraf was being replaced by a lateral entry of BB but alas; her ‘taqdeer’ some how caught up and plucked her way! [Inalillah wa ina Allehay rajayhoon]. But it is not much of a worrisome scenario for US; there are sufficiently capable people available in Pakistan to take over the job; only we have to wait till they complete their carrier courses and cadres  at home and at US ‘yattras’, subject to their fully verification and vetting! There are bigger jobs for them to do ahead? Even haven can wait and very rightly the entire Pakistan is on a hold; including Osama bin Laden.

The past conduct of Osama bin Laden (OBL) shows that this headliner stooge may not be graded as American foe at all, as he is generally purported. Mr. George W Bush is the sole top beneficiary of OBL past performances. He happens to be the best proven friend. May it be the past mid-term US elections, any remembrance day of atrocious incident of 9/11 or a time when US planned to initiate a surge of US forces in Iraq, etc, etc? He was always there ready with a befitting video or audio massage; very timely emerging from his hiding (cave) and coming up in aid of Bush with his pre-empt contributions. To act as decoy enemy; an act earnestly required to justify the next intended offensive moves by George W Bush. Has he ever been found late on this; no…never. He is our friend. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

The tons of seasonal harvest of tomatoes and cucumbers in Third World may not pose any problem. There are the mineral resources found in the Third World- verses -the Western rapacious greed, in order to snatch and make run their own economy wheels. This is a matter of gravious concerns of us all. The deceit full actions being carried out by the West to grab these resources to turn into their folds is making this world… an ‘unsafe place’. Pakistan; a beautiful country is in turmoil. There is anarchy and mayhem all over. Musharraf has been doing his best in his little capacity to curtail it; but fate of this country is pre-decided in USA. Pakistan is a US proxy and her all the leaders are implanted by US and each of them carry his or her a ‘sell by date’. The route for its leaders to the seat of power passes through Washington. So we should not be surprised with any untoward out come or abrupt change of faces. US selection remains predominant;  (jo pia mun bhaey). The turmoil in Pakistan is but predestined; with the friends like USA, who needs the enemies?
