An open letter to the president of pakistan

By Barrister Ali.K Chisti

My Dear President,
I hope you are well..? I see you on the television every day with a wide smile and Mash’Allah you look younger than ever each passing day.

My Dear President, I will come straight to the point, I am concerned as much as you are about the SWAT Deal and the Talibanization of Pakistan – I also understand that you are one of the direct victims of these butchers who call themselves Talibans……and the recent deal by ANP Legislators – apparently your coalition partners with Talibans has actually shocked and depressed us all – especially back in Southern Pakistan….

It is the first time in the history of mankind that a national legislature has conceded, without being under coercion, the state’s writ over a part of the country. Practically, Pakistan had already surrendered its writ over Swat, the NWFP and the FATA. With the National Assembly of Pakistan passing this resolution, the de facto partition is now de jure, legal. It appears to be limited to the Malakand Division. However, it is a legal precedent to include other divisions at later dates. Bit by bit, the whole de facto partition of Pakistan would be de jure.

It is more than a Greek tragedy, President. The elected representatives of the people of Pakistan partitioning the country without a referendum to know if their constituents had really wanted to partition their homeland. It is the ultimate treachery. The betrayal of the nation by its elected representatives – Brutes, Brutes!

The National Assembly of Pakistan did not even bother to debate over this monumental issue.

Monday, April 13, 2009, is a black day in the history of Pakistan. What makes it worse is that the people of Pakistan do not appear to know it. It appears awareness comes to those only, who seek it.

We appeared to have signed a deal with the murderers of this nation’s soldiers and innocents. They will never forgive us !

I ask my Dear President, as to why sign such a deal when we have Objective Resolutions as part of our Constitution? The resolution states that “sovereignty over the entire universe belongs to God Almighty alone and the authority which He has delegated to the State of Pakistan through its people for being exercised within the limits prescribed by Him is a sacred trust”. Thus it was ordained that no legislation could be adopted in Pakistan which was against the tenets of Islam. Everything had to stay within the “limits prescribed by Him”. The resolution was presented to the assembly by the first Prime Minister of the newly created republic of Pakistan Nawab Liaquat Ali Khan – so why this new Sharia Deal..?

Dear President, I also know that it was not the first time that the National Assembly of Pakistan brought grief to the people. The parliament in the 50s agreed to a parity rule for East Pakistan causing a majority province to be at par with all minority provinces combined in one-unit. Though it is not the parliamentarians alone. Things did things got to the point after the army was beaten/unwilling to fight, in Swat ? Is that why provincial government was forced to have a truce with the enemy. Why can’t anyone in the Government for-heaven sakes, reply to our questions honestly?

And what kind of Shariat will Sufi Mohammad will bring? Tehrik-i-Nifaz-i-Shariat-i-Muhammadi’s Chief Sufi Mohammad gave out statements that the militants accused of brutal killings would not be prosecuted under Islamic Law? And that Sufi Muhammad and Fazalluah or any of the members of the Tehrik-i-Nifaz-i-Shariat-i-Muhammadi will not be asked to stand up for trail in front of Qazi’s? What kind of self-tailored Shariat is this My President?

And now after you signed the Presidential Order’s Sufi Mohammad the self-proclaimed leader of Talibans who considers Baitullah Masud the murderer of your wife and thousands of Pakistanis as his role-model considers the whole of Parliament which voted for the deal as NOT ISLAMIC and the Judiciary – Devil’s Work!

My Dear President, Kindly review your decision – think for the stability of Pakistan in the long run and revoke this deal which is bound to fail – show some courage and force our Army of the so-called Marshall Race to go into SWAT and stop these barbarians, Talibans who close girl’s schools, murder innocents and flog girls! They are Terrorists and a threat to World Peace – Deals with them will only make them strong….

Your One Signature To Revoke This Deal Could Save This Country, Do It Before It’s Too Late………!!!!

  1. Great Writeup, Ali. The letter reflects the real sentiments of us all. Ali or AKC is an asset and with time is growing and developing into a politician with a brain. I think we have a leader in our hands. Thank You for the wonderful piece.
