Pakistan burned for 3 days after assassination of Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhotto - posted by Ashfaq

News Analysis: Who Killed Benazir Bhutto

News Analysis: Who killed Benazir Bhutto?

By Najam Sethi, Daily Times, Pakistan

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto has raised two important questions. Who killed her and why? And what happens next to the Pakistan People’s Party and by corollary to Pakistani politics?

Most Pakistanis are by instinct inclined to believe that the “agencies” did it. This is the easy explanation for anything that happens in this country which is either inexplicable or unpalatable. All political assassinations in Pakistan remain inexplicable since the truth about them has never been investigated or investigated but not made public. But the truth of Ms Bhutto’s assassination may also be subliminally unacceptable to many Pakistanis because a religious or “Islamist” element may be at its unpleasant core.

This response is also partly due to the ubiquitous role of the “agencies” in ordering Pakistan’s political contours since the 1980s, including making and unmaking governments and elections. So we can hardly be blamed for suspecting the “agencies” or clutching at half-baked theories. Certainly, the political opposition to President Pervez Musharraf would like everyone to think so. It suits the politicians’ purpose because it discredits the Musharraf regime and seeks to exploit the widespread anger and outrage at the killing of a popular leader to try and overthrow him.

But if the “agencies” have done this at President Musharraf’s bidding, why is no one asking about their motives for doing so, or whether this suits him in any way, considering that it is likely to provoke a popular movement to undo his regime? Indeed, why is no one wondering whether there is some non-agency link between Ms Bhutto’s assassination and the assassination attempts on the lives of President Musharraf (two), the former corps commander of Karachi, Ahsan Saleem Hayat (one), the former prime minister Shaukat Aziz (one) and the former interior minister Aftab Sherpao (two)? Surely, the “agencies” did not target these gentlemen.

Of course, Ms Bhutto did not make any explanations easier following the assassination attempt on her on 18 October when she pointed to “remnants” of the Zia regime in the Musharraf administration, including some former “agency” people. Apparently, she had been given to understand as much, but by whom and why we will never know.

There may also have been an element of political opportunism in her accusations at the time. She was trying to distance herself from President Musharraf to regain her credibility because most Pakistanis were unhappy at the prospect of a “deal” between her and him. Indeed, she was seen as being let off the hook regarding the corruption cases against her in exchange for agreeing to work with him at a time when he was terribly unpopular both for his political blunders regarding the judiciary and also for his pro-US stance on the “war against terror”. Most Pakistanis saw this war an unjust American war and not a just Pakistani war.

Later, however, Ms Bhutto saw the writing on the wall and changed tack. She started to say that the biggest threat to Pakistan lay in religious extremism and terrorism, a clear allusion to the Al Qaeda network that was trying to lay down roots in Pakistan’s tribal areas as part of its global strategy after Iraq to reclaim Afghanistan and make Pakistan a base area for Islamic revolution.

Shortly before she returned to Pakistan, Daily Times reported a statement by Baitullah Mehsud, an Al Qaeda-Taliban warlord based in Waziristan, saying that he had trained “hundreds of suicide bombers” and was determined to kill Benazir Bhutto because she was an American agent. The story was based on an interview given to Daily Times by a sitting member of the Pakistan senate who has been a conduit for Masud’s statements and who had recently met him.

posted by Muhammad Ashfaq : Celebration of Eid-ul-Azha and made sacrifices in the name of Almighty Allah

Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of Sacrifice) is celebrated throughout the Muslim world as a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim's (PBUH) willingness to sacrifice his son for God. Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated on the tenth day of the month of Zul-Hijja.

Eid ul-Adha annually falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar. The festivities last for two to three days or more depending on the country. Eid ul-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims conducting Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. It happens to be approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan.

Ashfaq Kiyani - The Dream Comes True on 27 Nov 2007, New man in command

Gen. Musharraf while handing / taking over with Gen. Ashfaq Kiyani on 27 Nov 2007.

Finally, Pervez Musharraf completed his much awaited dream of becoming President of Pakistan without the army uniform. Yesterday, General Musharraf handed over his army chief position in Pakistan army to Gen. Ashfaq Kayani. Gen. Kayani has always remained very close associate of Gen. Musharraf during his nine year tenure and he is believed to be very near to the Musharraf. Gen. Kayani has saved the life of Gen. Musharaf in two unsuccessful cope attempts. Gen. Kayani is also believed to be very near to America and Benazir Bhutto.

Now Musharraf is first Army chief in the history of Pakistan to become President of Pakistan and future will tell how he will run Pakistan without the top position of army. At present army is the most powerful institution in Pakistan and therefore support of army play a crucial role in the success or failure of any political or other important move. Moreover, time will tell that Gen. Kayani will remain obedient to Musharraf in future or not and does Pakistan is heading towards true democracy?

ALso read-1)General Musharraf address to nation- just an eye wash
2)Pakistan is again under Emergency
3)Attack on democracy hopes in Pakistan

He was feeling regretted getting himself off from the Power Chair of Command but the Pakistani Nation feel free now.
