Hanging an old man

Ali Sukhanver

USUALLY it is said that women are always extremists in their love as well as in their hatred. History is replete with the names of such women who sacrificed everything in their battle of love and hatred. But in case of hatred this really becomes dangerous. Sheikh Hasina Wajid and Naela Quadri are also among the crowd of such dangerous women who spare none in their blindness of hatred against Pakistan. The basic difference between these two ladies is that Hasina is more technical, more revengeful rather meaner while dealing with those she hates; and the similarity between them is that they both are dancing on the stage prepared by the Indian intelligence agency RAW.
Recent execution of Jamat-e-Islami leader in Bangladesh Motiur Rehman Nizami is the ever-worst example of Hasina’s shrewdness, callousness and hatred against Pakistan. Five opposition politicians, including four Jamat-e-Islami leaders, have been executed since late 2013 after being convicted by a bogus tribunal. Motiur Rehman Nizami was an old man of 73, approaching his natural ending with his growing age.
In most of the countries such old people are dealt with a particular tenderness even if they are involved in some type of crime. His crime was that he did sincere efforts of saving his country Pakistan from disintegration. He knew that Indian conspirators were creating misunderstandings between the East and the West Pakistan and being a true patriot it was his duty to safeguard his country. He did not want his people to be exploited by the Mukti Bahini.
Hasina Wajid simply penalised Motiur Rehman for his sincerity to his motherland. Most of the international analysts are of the opinion that the execution of Motiur Rehman is simply a violation of agreement signed by Bangladesh, India and Pakistan in 1974 and this execution is nothing but a judicial murder and violation of human rights. Same is the case with Naela Quadri; the self-claimed President of World Baloch Women’s Forum. According to the Times of India this lady says she wants India to liberate Balochistan from Pakistan, the way Bangladesh was liberated in 1971.
The paper said, “Naela Quadri has been traveling from one city to another in India mobilising Indians to do what Prime Minister Indira Gandhi did in East Pakistan in 1971.” What makes one laughing is Naela Quadri’s misconception regarding Indians that they could join hands together for the liberation of Balochistan. India in itself is passing through a very critical period of its life; increasing crime rate, increasing poverty and increasing caste n creed discrimination etc.
Unfortunately there is no one in India who could tell this ‘innocent’ lady Naela Quadri that there is a hell of difference between Balochistan and Bangladesh; the same story of hatred narrated to the illiterate people of Bangladesh could never be repeated here in Balochistan. Naela Quadri is trying to be another Hasina Wajid but for reaching that status, she will have to do so many ‘other things’; just travelling all over India, enjoying the facilities provided by the RAW and telling the people of India the same old story would not be sufficient. The people of India have nothing to do with this affair; rather they have no role to play; it is only the people of Balochistan who have the right of deciding whether they wish to remain the heart and soul of Pakistan or otherwise; it is the same right of self-determination that Pakistan has ever been supporting there in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. Against the dream and desire of the unfortunate Naela Quadri, there is no one in Balochistan who has ever even thought of saying good-bye to Pakistan.
The Baloch are very brave and honest people; no one has any ability or courage of captivating them or depriving them of their rights; they are the people of their own will and desire; it is rather an insult to the whole of Baloch people that a woman is ‘begging’ for the liberation of a land which had never been under control and command of any foreign force. The actual owners of Balochistan are happily living their life according to their own wish and desire in their own territory but their happiness and satisfaction is more than a pinching thorn to some of their ‘well-wishers’.
