The Plan To Topple Pakistan Army – by Ahmed Quraishi

An ‘eye-opener’ piece about the ‘other side of the looking glass’… Ahmed Quraishi presents yet another persepective to the tall claims by the United States, the media, the mullahs, the so called ‘patriotic writers’ of Pakistan and the unyielding struggle of several factions within Pakistan. A bitter but factual presentation of ‘who is actually pulling who’ in Pakistan. Read the complete article on Ahmed Quraishi’s website at the following link: The Plan To Topple Pakistan Army

Excerpts from the article are as under:

“This is not about Musharraf anymore. This is about clipping the wings of a strong Pakistani military, denying space for China in Pakistan, squashing the ISI, stirring ethnic unrest, and neutralizing Pakistan’s nuclear program. The first shot in this plan was fired in Pakistan’s Balochistan province in 2004. The last bullet will be toppling Musharraf, sidelining the military and installing a pliant government in Islamabad. Musharraf shares the blame for letting things come this far. But he is also punching holes in Washington’s game plan. He needs to be supported.”

“Currently, students are being recruited and organized into a street movement. The work is ongoing and urban Pakistani students are being cultivated, especially using popular Internet Web sites and ‘online hangouts’. The people behind this effort are mostly unknown and faceless, limiting themselves to organizing sporadic, small student gatherings in Lahore and Islamabad, complete with banners, placards and little babies with arm bands for maximum media effect. No major student association has announced yet that it is behind these student protests, which is a very interesting fact glossed over by most journalists covering this story. Only a few students from affluent schools have responded so far and it’s not because the Pakistani government’s countermeasures are effective. They’re not. The reason is that social activism attracts people from affluent backgrounds, closely reflecting a uniquely Pakistani phenomenon where local NGOs are mostly founded and run by rich, westernized Pakistanis. “

“We know what the Indians are doing. They’ve sold the Americans on the idea that [the Indians] are an authority on Pakistan and can be helpful in Afghanistan. The Americans have bought the idea and are in on the plan, giving the Indians a free hand in Afghanistan. What the Americans don’t know is that we, too, know the Indians very well. Better still, we know Afghanistan very well. You can’t beat us at our own game.”

“U.S. intelligence and their Indian advisors could not cultivate an immediate replacement for Mr. Bugti. So they moved to Plan B. They supported Abdullah Mehsud, a Pakistani Taliban fighter held for five years in Guantanamo Bay, and then handed over back to the Afghan government, only to return to his homeland, Pakistan, to kidnap two Chinese engineers working in Balochistan, one of whom was eventually killed during a rescue operation by the Pakistani government.”

“A succession of ‘religious rebels’ with suspicious foreign links have suddenly emerged in Pakistan over the past months claiming to be ‘Pakistani Taliban’. Some of the names include Abdul Rashid Ghazi, Baitullah Mehsud, and now the Maulana of Swat. Some of them have used and are using encrypted communication equipment far superior to what Pakistani military owns.”

“Military, Inc.: Inside Pakistan’s Military Economy, a book authored by Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa Agha, a columnist for a Pakistani English-language paper and a correspondent for ‘Jane’s Defence Weekly’, a private intelligence service founded by experts close to the British intelligence.”

“A closer look at Ms. Siddiqa, the author, revealed disturbing information to Pakistani officials. In the months before launching her book, she was a frequent visitor to India where, as a defense expert, she cultivated important contacts. On her return, she developed friendship with an Indian lady diplomat posted in Islamabad.”

“A large number of ISI agents who are responsible for helping the Taliban and al Qaeda should be thrown in jail or killed. What I think we should do in Pakistan is a parallel version of what Iran has run against us in Iraq: giving money [and] empowering actors. Some of this will involve working with some shady characters, but the alternative-sending U.S. forces into Pakistan for a sustained bombing campaign-is worse.” Steve Schippert, Weekly Standard, Nov. 2007.

    Bugti was a traitor, Nawaz is a whiner, BB is a p****, Ch Iftikhar is a baboon, and GEO is a sell out! Brainwash the public with sentimental tears and emotional speeches and let Pakistan rot in the hands of those who want nothing but to see Pakistan crippled. Shabaash to all you ignorant Pakistanis

    Let’s face it. Our ‘seasoned’ politicians are not capable enough to take on the brunt of international ploys and mystics. They are land lords and business men who put their interests before any thing else. Why should they get democracy when all they want to do is ‘rule’ in the name of it? Media is no different. Bite the hand that feeds you! They were given freedom for the FIRST time in 60 years and look who they exploited it after giving themselves to the highest bidder. No sir, they don’t deserve democracy or freedom. They don’t know the meaning of it. They can’t respect it, and they can’t understand it. Period!!

    If this is not an ‘eye opener’ for all of you who have shut your eyes and ears and who refuse to listen to any explanation other than those against Pakistan then you people do not deserve to be in a free country.

    America knows that she is down under because NOTHING is going her way these days. She hates Pakistan’s growing ties with China and that is no hidden fact. More and more people should speak up because it is now or never situation.

    A definitive piece indeed. Here is another one that you should know about:


    “The seething anti-Americanism in Pakistan is a far cry from the days in the aftermath of 9/11 when a wave of sympathy for the US swept Pakistan and Pakistanis extended full support to General Musharraf to join the ‘War on Terror’. In 2007, it is appears that it is a matter of only few years that this seething anger and a sense of helplessness against the combined might of the army generals and World’s sole super power would turn into a popular uprising . The ‘buying time’ approach is short-sighted and fraught with high risks. The US has tried this sort of ‘moderate’ setups (read pliable local forces willing to toe the US line for moderate ) in the recent history with predictable result – failure.”

    The opposition in general has not lagged behind in giving false hopes and misleading people into movement that have weakened Pakistan. Conspiracies, murder, imprisonment and bribery are not too uncommon in the land whose state religion places a higher emphasis on honesty and integrity. Regionalism, ethnocentrism, tribalism, feudalism and materialism are the driving forces behind the social, economic and political machines of the nation created to make the equality, justice and liberty under the guidance of God almighty the cornerstone of its every day life. Many politicians and movements take pride in the number of murders they have presided over the years and many leaders boast their record in inspiring thousands to become martyrs. In the land of Islam, most religious leaders compete with each other in describing their opponent being non-Muslims. What a sham we are in and yet instead of looking towards making Pakistan stronger, we ourselves are hacking at its roots and foundations. The West and our enemies need not fret so much because we are doing the deed for them ourselves.

    I don’t know, when our people will understand the ugly motives and designs of the Anti-state performers. These corrupt groups/individuals are playing dirty inorder to fill their bellies and our so called civilized private channels have eased the conditions for them to fullfill the agenda of MOSAD, RAW and CIA. I pray to Allah Almighty to fail all the evil designs of these people, who are supported by the enemies of Pakistan which are pumping billions of dollars to destablise Pakistan in general and Pakistan Army in particular. I also request the bosses of all these media channels and newspapers to understand the complexity of situation and work for Pakistan and not for our enemies. This article is an eye opener for all Pakistani’s. Buck up Mr. Ahmed Quraishi and keep it up. Pakistan Zindabad and Pakistan Army Paindabad

    Jinnah to Armed Forces of Pakistan; (1947 / 1948)
    “Do not forget that the armed forces are the servants of the people and you do not make national policy; it is we, the civilians, who decide these issues and it is your duty to carry out these tasks with which you are entrusted”.
    After quoting the above saying of Jinnah, I will regret the thoughts / ideas floated in this article, but then it’s very obvious, what more can you expect from a person like Ahmed Quraishi – an employee of PTV “PervezTV”. You can well imagine his vision when just at the beginning of his article he is quoting that 1st shot was fired in Balochistan province in 2004, man seems to know little history of Pakistan what to say of Balochistan. But I will again say you shouldn’t expect more from him, born & brought up in Kuwait & then starting his career in journalism from Gulf region, he seems to be oblivious of the facts & history of Pakistan, or otherwise I must say he is distorting facts & presenting a twisted view under the influence of “Agencies Money”.
    A major portion of his article is dedicated to justify the “Business Empire” of Pak Army & then indulging without any proof into character assassination of Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa, writer of the famous book “Military Inc”, and it’s from here that you can “smell a rat” in his own words. As a matter of fact the launching ceremony of this book was cancelled & all the major hotels in Islamabad refused the author for any venue / booking for launching ceremony under the influence of the agencies. It looks as if “Agencies Activism” is at work. How ridiculous it seems to justify all the irrelevant businesses of the Pak Army knowing the fact that it has badly affected their professionalism, so much so that now even we the Pakistanis don’t have any faith on their abilities when it comes to fighting a war against the enemy of the motherland. Although they never had a record of winning the war against outsiders but still if you compare the results from 1948 to 1965 to 1971 & onwards to Siachin & Kargil a gradual downfall of the professional behavior is clearly observed.
    The core problem seems to be that Armed forces are losing respect not for the reasons cited in this article but because of their own “Corrupt & Dishonest Behaviour”. They are mainly if not solely responsible for bringing the country to the present juncture & putting the whole nation into hopeless condition by destroying the institutions of the country the lastly being most important – Judiciary.
    Why should anybody plan to target Pakistan when we are self sufficient & working hard in this field. For instance can anyone justify the statement of our President, who is also the Chief of the Armed forces, when he is addressing the international community & threatening that if he quits the power then the nuclear arsenal of the country can go in wrong hands, only a traitor can talk like this. Like Mr. Musharraf, Mr. Ahmed Quraishi (His Master’s Voice) is also giving the impression that Musharraf himself is the nation, pl. don’t confuse Musharraf with Pakistan.
    I must say at this juncture of history a real soul searching is required from all of us, specially from those who are in control of the country to question our behavior as a nation, otherwise as Hazrat Ali (R.A) has said that a society can’t survive without justice, what can we expect of our own society where the Chief Justice of the Nation is under house arrest, agencies are running the torture cells, people are kidnapped by those very persons who are custodian of law & are suppose to protect them. Still people like Ahmed Quraishi are misleading the public because of their selfish interests.

    This is called dmocracy. A place where people debate and discuss ideas. Even silly ones like what Ahmed Qureshi. Isnt he the guy on PTV who tells us the emergency is a good thing for us and taht we should be

  14. November 29, 2007 at 9:00 am

    Rustic your spellings are as rusty as your name. Learn to SPELL the word DEMOCRACY before making a joke out of it. A democratic Pakistan with the likes of Nawaz, Imran, BB, and Iftikhar running around crying ‘unfair, unfair’? You got to be bloody joking. Half of the people who come out to protest are either the illiterate rural folks who have not even read the constitution and there they are demanding that constitution be restored. Emergency was very much needed to get people in line. Whether you like it or not, the emergency was imposed. Not much you could do about it but ‘fall in’ !

    I have seen this article many times at many pages and the more i read the more i laugh at the length PRO-MUSH have gone in order to search out something at least something for him to please him. This time GEO became the victim.

    The article is the height of stupidity the government has reached in order to bring out defamation to everyone, just anyone who is against MUSH.

    This article is so idiotic in its objectivity that i hardly requires any second thought but instead of me replying i am just copy/pasting a reply from one of our MAILING LIST fellows at http://WWW.PROUND-PAKISTANI.COM

    PLz clear your mind and think!

    Your entire analysis, dear writer, falls flat on its face because the write up is anything but a well thought out argument.

    · Think you are not aware of GEO…its been funded by usa govt

    Then what is there to worry? Your beloved General (Retd.) Pervaiz Musharraf happens to be their biggest stooge, no? Now, why would two entities belonging to the same party have a conflict of interest?

    · ……just think, what jew / indian/ American lobby want ……… the basic , idea is to promote frustration, and despondence in a nation so they start to demoralized.

    I am sorry but I fail to see the point here. Does the writer want to imply that if someone tramples upon my (being a Pakistani national) basic rights, takes away a judiciary that was working for me, imposes curbs on my freedom of expression, I should go out on the street and shout “Ao bhai – Pao bhangra”? Am I supposed to feel ‘happy’ about it? Does this assertion by the author make any sense to you folks?

    · and the future can be mapped as they want to project in the minds of 50 percent Illiterate population….that are born muslim ,,,can’t read ..but can see

    What has their inability to read got anything to do with this issue? It’s not as if General (Retd.) Pervaiz Musharraf’s government is getting a standing ovation in the print media either, no? What exactly is the writer trying to imply here?

    why on earth USA is concern with only GEO ,why cnn bbc and bush quote GEO? why not other tv channels in china ? japan, CUBA ,Indian channel,arab, france ….. ?why only pakistan??????

    The writer should watch more of CNN and BBC in this case for they do quote from CNN-IBN (go figure, why does an Indian channel have the prefix CNN?), Xinhua and various other local channels when discussing stories from their respective countries. And just for the sake of information of the writer of this newsletter, international news channels and agencies not only quote other tv channels but also buy/borrow tv footage from them. It’s a globalised world, about time you wake up, dear author.

    why geo showed ..peoples body without head ,only fingers parts, people dying after bomb blast ,?does any other channel show these thing????
    That is where Geo was truly at fault and it’s not a fault that couldn’t be rectified through dialog not by pulling them off the air.

    (in India more then 2000 muslims were killed in Gujarat for three months!!!! any 36 hours live coverage of these killing have any one seen on ZEE or star or sony, etc any Indian channels???
    Is the writer really trying to act ill-informed here or is it just me? Either ways, it goes on to show the sort of people that still support the despot.


    Help yourself with the media coverage part of the above wiki link, and just before you attack me for pasting a wiki link, let me tell you that this one has links to back the information up. Have fun reading it. Oh and that’s not it, feel free to put a query, “Role of Media+Gujrat Massacre” in google and see more info on it yourself.

    · Babri masjid was destroyed by hindu any live coverage ????

    Do you not remember watching sadhos in their traditional saffron climbing on top of the mosque and trying to break it down using clubs and spades? Where did that footage come from? Mars, maybe?

    have you ever seen Indian president or politician been given GALEE on tv channel during live coverage????
    Is the Indian President an illegal entity? Whom ‘you’ are calling the President of Pakistan is an illegal entity as far as the law and the constitution of this land is concerned, so how can you possibly expect people to treat him with respect? Do you treat burglars, kidnappers and rapists with respect too? If not then why would you want to treat the rapist of the constitution of Pakistan with respect?

    30,000 rape cases in USA do you see on tv????but you see muktaran maee on geo/cnn/bbc
    Yep, Yep, go on and tell me just like your leader that she got herself raped in order to garner publicity? Of course, such panchayats should not be brought to public eye, and should be kept hidden so that they can rape as many women as possible. Way to go, dear writer!

    A COUNTRY WHERE 60 percent of population cannot read and never been to school media must not be free ……

    The same public, though uneducated is responsible for the very creation of this state. I , for one would give a little more credit to their intellect and political conscience.

  16. December 8, 2007 at 2:15 pm

    You have to be joking. The Current protest is being run by liberal, middle class LUMS, FAST types. Lawyers are well read people. Though i cannot say that about the LUMS students. Get real.

  17. December 8, 2007 at 2:16 pm

    Sorry about the spelling. LUMS did not do much to help much.

    Simple fact of the matter is…that Pakistan IS being targeted. political forces have raped this country and are still trying to do so, im sorry but i grew up watching all this bullshit and i credit myself to understand and reason..at least more so that western media, and what i see on screen infuriates me. so far the army has done a lot to keep the “war on terror” (which we all know is bullshit) from spilling into the country making it a sequel to Iraq. but our people are uneducated and the officials corrupt…..and political leaders brainwash these people to believe in their own party’s agenda, no wonder the public is confused and hopeless, what with tradition and religon being preached by mullahs with different schools of thought and the clash of western culture and its superior effect on our youth’s way of life….sad.

    Pro army or pro whatever…i beg all of you to think better for the country and not for a faction. Pakistan is going towards another partition and that would be our provinces…dont let it happen, unite against all of this, the US ..if it does come into Pakistan is going to be another east indian company.

    This country doesnt deserve democracy, at least till people cant reason and think for themselves, till we have patriots leading us and turning a deaf ear to anyting that has little interest for this country…..politicians have failed time and time again, and still we give them their inch to gain a mile.

    This article made sence and some of the information i had has been confirmed by this explaination. Whether its a result of authentic research and unbiased reasoning or a farce created to misguide people(i hardly believe this theory)…..its a signal for Pakistanis to be strong and stick together….have one goal in mind…..the best for our country, the rest should be considered secondary.

    hmm this article is quite very right but the things would rather be more then what we see.The struggle of damn indains to tropple not only the army but the whole pakistan is started from the independence of pakistan first there fi plan accordong to their great philospher chankya who was in the age of there great emperior ashoka who headed from nepal to kabul. And he was the only leader in all hindus history who had such a great state to lead upon.Indians raw emblem has 4 lions which was actually the sign of ashokas state.This emblem clearly shows us what india still think of.Indians are still having this appetite in thier hearts to make their state as ashoka had but its not possible now.i admit that the condition we are facing is still as it was 1400 years ago still we have to face mushriks still we face yahoodees with there old strategies as what chankiya said in his book the 4 steps to invade nation is first to threat then to gratify then creat dispute between them and at the end attack on them. 1971 war was might be the time when pakistan might have parted but those who think pakistan will going to be parted now are wrong INSHALLAH we will never be:)coffee
