Its open secret of Pakistan that its Pakistan Army has been dictating the terms in day to day functioning of the country for last 72 years since creation
of the country in 1947, directly by imposing Martial Law through military coup or having puppet civilian Government. Pak Army has its fingers in almost every sector of the economy. It is beyond comprehension of anyone and everyone as to how and why all powerful
Pak Army remain bystanders during this farcical drama of Azadi March. It is widely believed that the Army ‘selected’ Imran Khan, but are they dissatisfied with his performance for some reason? Are they supporting it behind the scene like a hidden
has been facing a deep-seated economic and financial crisis and seemingly intractable governance issues for the last few years. Factors such as international sanctions and global economic slowdown, which have worsened Pakistan’s economic difficulties,
were beyond Pakistan’s control. However major issue of downfall of Pakistan remain, is its obsessiveness with Kashmir and rivalry with India on the pretext of unfounded fear of India being their potential and only ‘enemy’. The country is
spending major chunk of their revenue on defence for procurement of arms and other warlike equipments thereby putting entire burden on common man.
The patience of Pakistani awam ran out and they took to streets under Maulana Fazal ur Rehman. But issue remains as to why Pakistan Army is quite and allowed ‘Sieze of Pakistan’ where entire nation has come to standstill for so many days.
There is no buyer to the idea that event of such magnitude can take place without the consent of General Bajwa. Is it Bajwa’s game plan to divert attention of Pakistani awam from the Kashmir because of his helplessness of not being able to take any action
post abrogation of Article 370, the issue on which the very ‘Existence and Survival’ has hinged upon for last 72 years and pass on the blame of their in action on ‘Pakistan’s internal turmoil’ and failure of civil Government?
As Markandey Katju, a noted retired justice of Supreme Court of India said, ‘combined with the fact that the Pakistan economy is tanking, public
debt mounting, prices of essential commodities rising and people’s distress growing, this situation is a recipe for a total collapse of everything and a prolonged period of chaos in Pakistan’.
