Decision Time!


Following is what I wrote on December 23rd, 2011:

After a lot of skepticism (still some left), maswaq sessions (still more to come) and speeches, I have developed faith in the capabilities of the Khan in pulling off a miracle i.e. saving Pakistan from total obliteration.

Last time when I had an opportunity to cast a vote in Pakistan, I refused because of the track record of the Presidential candidates at the time. They were all corrupt right down to their core, and so were their subordinates. I don't think any one of us is privy to whatever's been going on in Pakistan all these years.

A pretty big part of this dirty chunk of politicians is now joining the Khan's team in hefty numbers; it's been increasing since the famous Lahore jalsa. Now whether these people are joining PTI for their own personal agendas or out of genuine faith in the Khan, the important fact is that Khan becoming the next leader of a nation, with ever-decreasing hope, is definitely a possibility. How the corrupt are dealt with by Imran Khan is yet to be seen. He, himself, is honest and has willingly declared his assets publicly. Besides, other political parties have been trying for a very long time to somehow throw some dirt on Imran Khan's credibility and honesty; they have failed to date, and will keep doing so. Based solely on this fact, its highly likely that anybody who works under him will most probably take a turn for the better, or wont be a part of the team for very long.

A new day will dawn on Pakistan when Imran Khan is elected as the leader. And I now desperately wait for the time when the Quaid's dream of a powerful Pakistani nation comes true. Imran Khan is here to lay the foundation for a better future, and then it'll again fall into our hands to make something beautiful out of it.

Life and death is in the hands of the Almighty. Whatever harm may or may not come to him is in His hands as well. Imran Khan, may Allah protect you and make you successful in all your endeavors. You are a breath of fresh air for so many who actually understand your worth.

Today I officially registered my vote as an Overseas Pakistani. Seemingly it isn't much but the feeling is actually exhilarating. There's something very different in the air; something that I'd never really experienced before when it came to the future of Pakistan. Hope, and it's beautiful.

Happy Birthday dear Quaid and a very Happy New Year.

God Bless!

P.S. Thanks Maulvi, Freaky and Pulsi for a very thought provoking discussion the other night. I still believe we shouldn't close our eyes to skepticism, it only helps in bringing out more answers.

Almost a year and a half has passed since, and naturally, a lot more debate has been done on Khan sahib. The battle for a 'Naya Pakistan' is well on its way with the outcome soon to be decided on 11th May.

My belief in Imran Khan as the savior of Pakistan has increased tenfold since I first accepted him as my leader and captain. And my hatred and intolerance has also hit the sky for the corrupt power-hungry money-greedy bastards in form of PML-N and PPP, and of course, their beautiful supporters. It has always escaped my understanding that how can people choose corrupt and liars as their leaders. I think it speaks highly of their own character and morals as humans. If we are known by the company we keep, aren't we also bound to be judged by the type of leaders we opt for as well?

Another thing that bugs me is our penchant for accepting ousted leaders. General (Retd) Musharraf is single-handedly responsible for the condition Pakistan is in today. He was the one who chose to become a USA ally in the farce termed as 'War on Terror', and ended up antagonizing almost the entire Western end of Pakistan who have been conducting Jihaad against their very own homeland since. How can people support this character? I can never forgive this moron because he shed the blood of his own people, and no I don't give a damn about his reforms and policies, and whatever he did to bring about development in the country; nothing is more valuable than life.

Now the reason why I support Imran Khan is very simple: he's honest. I don't give a rat's ass about his political policies, or about the manifesto he declared. I choose him as my leader because he's honest. Mostly, I don't like to argue over policies and ideas because I'd rather leave the politics to the politicians. And if anybody, without any educational background in political studies, thinks that they can easily understand and comprehend politics, pretty darn sure they're fooling themselves. In a nut-shell, I'd rather choose a leader based on his moral standing in the society and whether he has a track record in betraying his own country.

I staunchly believe that Allah never abandons the honest and righteous. In my eyes, Imran Khan has a crystal clear character and is honest to the core. Every decision that he takes on behalf of Pakistan will always revolve around one idea, the idea of developing Quaid's Pakistan!

It is time to choose sides and decide if we want a 'Naya Pakistan' as a reflection of Quaid's Pakistan, or still want to hand it over to the corrupt to freeload on whatever's left of our poor nation. The decision for Pakistan is going to be made in a month's time and whoever YOU vote for will determine our Pakistan's future. I beg all of you, especially the women, to stop listening to your village elders or family heads and use your own brains in choosing a leader. It were these very 'elders' who've ended up screwing over Pakistan by bringing the corrupt to power or accepting dictators as their leaders. Please, think for yourself and choose an honest and clean leader.

May Allah be with Pakistan and help us make the right decision.
May Allah keep Imran Khan safe from harm and help him in his fight for Pakistan.

Pakistan Zindabad!

  1. I'm really happy to read this post as it reflects my own emotions.

    Transforming from apolitical to an IK supporter, I really feel proud of being part of something which is genuinely concerned about future of me and my country.

    The moral standing reason is the need of the hour. Kudos to you Sufi for putting it so simple yet convincing (for the non-beliebers :P)

  2. Thank you for your comments Tam. The whole point of writing this was not to delve into political decisions of Imran Khan but to merely put forward the main reason why I would support him.

    It's actually kudos to Imran Khan for showing us a glimmer of hope from the other extreme of being completely oblivious to the politics in Pakistan.

    In Sha Allah, IK will win and turn around Pakistan in the next five years.
