After realizing that there will be no chance of a successful composite dialogue between the bureaucratic heads of the two nations, Pakistan’s
new propaganda is to gather the international support by observing this “fraud” Solidarity hour.
to note here is that as soon as the announcement for Kashmir hour was made, it was the Army spokesperson, DG ISPR, Maj Gen Asif Gafoor who sprung into action, passing necessary instructions for conduct of the same. A matter that involves no defense involvement
and should in fact be handled by the civil administration, automatically found its way into the Army’s hands. More and more participants were urged to join the movement, school children were asked to be out of schools,all gathered by the massive
Army of the boys in boots. It seems as though the country is headed towards a political coup, while hypocrisy beams out of this facade of hourly protests every Friday. Until then, Pakistan’s imperfect democracy will move along shoddily while the wheels
of government continue to turn on the erratic whims of the men in uniform.
