Conspiracy Alert: Dual Nationality and Establishment Paranoia

Jul 10th, 2012 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, The News

The News (Jang Group)Last month, Gen (r) Tahir Ali wrote that “wrong assumptions, and conclusions drawn thereof, may mislead those assigned to formulate policies”. We agree completely with this conclusion. It is that therefore that much more worrying that Gen (r) Ali fills his latest column for The News with idle speculation, innuendo, and unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. His latest conspiracy theory says that “the US is trying to control Pakistan by controlling its leadership”. This is a serious charge, and therefore deserves serious attention.

According to the respected General (r), the US is plotting to elect US citizens who will then undermine the military “and curtail their ability to breed ‘strategic defiance’ to the US ‘grand design’ in the region”. Gen. Ali claims that “the US by just controlling 4-5 party-heads, can control the entire policy-making of Pakistan” and gives a dire warning: “One can imagine the consequences if these leaders also choose to become US citizens after passage of proposed bill on ‘dual nationality.’”

Fortunately, like his dreadful warning, the General’s piece appears to be based entirely in his own imagination. Gen (r) Ali presents not a single piece of evidence to support anything that he has written. He doesn’t even allude to fictitious ‘sources’ or manufactured ‘intelligence’ that proves – or even suggests – that the US is controlling any politicians or party heads. Surely such a serious accusation should require the accuser to provide some evidence supporting his claim?

This raises another issue with regards to Gen (r) Ali’s conspiracy theory. If the General does have some evidence that a foreign power has infiltrated the deepest echelons of government, does he not have a moral and patriotic if not legal obligation to present this evidence as part of a FIR or possibly alert the Supreme Court? Why is a career soldier – a retired Major General actually – merely making unsubstantiated accusations on the inside pages of a newspaper instead of giving all evidence on the front page so that traitors and villains can be quickly removed before they can do any harm?

The same question should be asked of the Editors at The News: What was the level of editorial oversight when this piece was selected for publication? Did the editors request the minimum amount of evidence to corroborate the sensational and serious claims of treason at the highest level? Do they not have a professional obligation to fact-check, verify, and substantiate such serious charges before publishing them on their pages?

It should also be noted here that perhaps the retired General has given away more than was intended. What, for example, does he mean by breeding ‘strategic defiance’ to the US? Does this refer to the sudden and unexplained rise of Difa-e-Pakistan Council? Or is this a reference to the military’s reluctance to target militants affliated with the Haqqanis? Unlike many of the retired military officers who have taken up a new profession in journalism, Gen (r) Ali only recently retired from the Army meaning that he would have direct knowledge of very recent – if not current – military strategy. Did the General (r), in his moment of excitement, accidentally spill the beans? If so, the General may inadvertently find himself off the hook, though. Since his piece is so filled with unsubstantiated conspiracy theories, anything in it will be naturally called into question.

Gen (r) Tahir Ali’s piece is titled, How the establishment looks at contempt law, dual citizenship bill. Perhaps, though, this should be the most worrying. If the views presented by the author reflect not only his own paranoia, but those of the ‘establishment’ as a whole, we should ask ourselves if the General’s previous warning that “wrong assumptions, and conclusions drawn thereof, may mislead those assigned to formulate policies” has already come true.

  1. 1. Since the creation of Pakistan, establishment got dominated by the UPites and Punjabis. Especially UPites had total control of Pakistan foreign policy, defense establishment & federal government services because of UPite prime minister, governor general, members of constitutional assembly, federal cabinet members and president of ruling party. Neither, the Bengalis were inducted nor Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons were adjusted in establishment, cabinet, constitutional assembly and federal government services.

    2. Since the creation of Pakistan, UPites adopted the methodology of “Divide and Rule” (Divide the original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Bengalis, Sindhis, Balochis, Pukhtoons and Punjabis, to “Rule the Pakistan” and “Dominate the Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture and UPite traditions by means of suppressing and eliminating the languages, cultures and traditions of original and actual entities of Pakistan”.

    3. Since the creation of Pakistan, UPites adopted the methodology of backbiting Bengalis, Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons in front of Punjabis and criticizing the Punjabis in front of Bengalis, Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons. As a result, at all times, Punjabis had reservations about Bengalis, Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons, whereas constantly, Bengalis, Sindhi, Balochis and Pukhtoons had complaints about Punjabis, same practice persist till the day.

    4. Nowadays, the filthy role of UPite is performed by the siblings of UPites; to a certain extent, it became a routine practice and habit of UPite siblings as a result of continuous success in mission since decades. Ironically, not only common masses, but intellectuals, historians and politicians from original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabis are not able to brainstorm, comprehend and recognize the tricks and tactics of UPites.

    5. After creation of Pakistan skilled and technical professions, media and political organizations, civil and military establishment, national and foreign affairs bureaucracy came under domination of Muhajirs from UP, CP and East Punjab, whereas, business and trade sectors came under domination of Muhajirs from Gujarat.

    6. Bengalis, Punjabis from West Punjab, Pukhtoons, Sindhis and Balochis had participation in agriculture and livestock fields with limited and restricted involvement in local and provincial level civil services, however, had active position in regional and cultural politics and media organizations of local level.

    7. At present, Punjabi hegemony is visible in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, skilled and technical professions, agriculture and livestock fields, business and trade sectors but due to political immaturity, incompetency and aptitude, Punjabis have subordinating role in politics and media organizations at national and international level.

    8. Sindhis have dominating role in regional politics, media and cultural activities along with ordinary position in agriculture and livestock fields, but due to lack of ability and aptitude, have subordinating role in skilled and technical professions, business and trade sectors, civil and military establishment, national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, whereas, hegemony of UPite Muhajirs is visible in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, skilled and technical professions, political and media organizations.

    9. Although, UPites are not the “Son of Soil” of Pakistani land nevertheless, they never tried to accumulate and assimilate them self with the language, culture and traditions of original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhis, Balochis, Pukhtoons and Punjabis, therefore they wish to earn from Pakistan, choose to live in western countries and desire to socially interact abroad, instead of accumulating and assimilating with original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhis, Balochis, Pukhtoons and Punjabis.

    10. As a consequence of aliens to the original and actual entities of Pakistan, overseas contacts, opportunistic and service oriented mindset, they are found to provide human intelligence and prefer to work as a catalyst in national and international affairs as a proxy player, whereas, other original and actual entities of Pakistan, particularly Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons don’t have the axis and opportunities similar to the UPite Muhajirs, therefore UPite Muhajirs are evermore sweet choice for national and international proxy game players.

    11. Original and actual entities of Pakistan, especially Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons are already lacking in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, skilled and technical professions, political and media organizations, therefore, hegemony of UPite Muhajirs in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, skilled and technical professions, political and media organizations, in conjunction with desire to socially interact abroad, wish to earn from Pakistan, choose to live in western countries, always facilitated the UPite Muhajirs to act as a catalyst of proxy play to provide human intelligence and services to the national and international proxy game players.

    12. Original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and most of Punjabis are willing and wishing the entitlement, improvement and autonomy of their historical land, language, culture and traditions; those are encroached, occupied, dominated, twisted and manipulated by the alien UPites, Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture, therefore, their struggle for the entitlement, improvement and autonomy of their historical land, language, culture and traditions can’t be treated as “Struggle for Breakdown of Pakistan”.

    13. In short, original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabis are “Son of Pakistani Soil” and they will never auction their mother land in the hands of national and international game players. None of the original and actual entity of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabi is agreeing to Breakdown Pakistan. It is a propaganda strategy or the day dreaming and wishful thinking of UPites. However, role of UPites always remained suspicious and reckless for the stability, integrity and harmony of Pakistan in addition to the original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabi.

    14. Therefore, providing the right of participation in Pakistani politics, governance, government services and institution to the “Dual Nationality Citizens of Pakistan” may further facilitate the UPites to serve like catalyst in national and international affairs as a proxy player and to provide human intelligence to the national and international game players. It will furthermore dominate the hegemony of UPite Muhajirs in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, political and media organizations in conjunction with insecurity, instability and uncertainty of Pakistan as well as original and actual entities of Pakistan, particularly Sindhis, Balochis and Pukhtoons.

    15. For the reason that, since decades, slogans by the UPites were observed, interpreted and proved as; “Love Pakistan” means “Love Karachi” (no importance to any other land of Pakistan, except Karachi), “Pakistan 1st” means “UPites 1st” (no importance to the original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabi, except UPites) and “Long Live Pakistan” means “Long Live Urdu Language, Gunga Jumna Culture and UPites Traditions” (no need of languages, cultures and traditions of original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Balochi, Pukhtoon and Punjabi, except Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture and UPites traditions).

  2. Plural allegiance’ does not take away or diminish the loyalty of a dual national Pakistani for Pakistan. This is a wrong concept that a dual national cannot be as loyal to Pakistan as someone with single nationality. There are over 35 countries in the world including Pakistan, India, the UK, USA, Canada and France, which allow dual nationality to their citizens and most of them also allow them to take part in their parliamentary and other elections. Dual nationality in modern times should be viewed as a means for people to globalize the freedom of rights to freely participate in political, social and economic well-being and thus help harmonies the relationship between the countries of their nationalities.
