PM visits the GHQ - A short note by Haider Raza - Insaf Blogs | Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf


What should have been a norm is seen as a great moment. And yes it is. For once we have A PM, a Government, an Army Chief and an Army to be proud of! Never felt so elated & full of hope as now. We've wrought a near miracle in Imran's election and in the near perfect and complete alignment amongst key stakeholders. Executive, Judiciary, Parliament and yes the Army! And the negative media chatter we've heard these last days is terrible. It's really the chatter of the monkeys in the jungle as they swing crazily and madly in frenzied fear from tree top to tree top, as they see their world coming to an end. And because without their daily media circus and incredibly naive, ill informed and petty and mostly ill informed and incorrect commentaries, there work is incomplete. Unfortunately the vast majority of all our anchors had a field day taking Imran to town. And none delivered anything of value these last 10 days. All we heard was ; Helicopter. Buzdar. RPO. This appointment. That appointment. Maneka etc. As if this is the only thing about governance. But as I've always said, the caravan doesn't wait or stop for barking dogs! Have faith in Imran, in his decisions, in the institutions of the state as he and his team fixes them, slowly and surely. Please understand that the winds are furious, the storms massive, the coffers empty, the institutions destroyed, and on top of all that, these monkeys with their chatter. Ignore them! Give Imran the minimum 3 to 6 months learning curve as he understands his new role as we give to everyone in a new role. Let him get a handle on things. As PM he will surprise everybody! As he continues to do. And many, myself included have been saying this for many years. Look at his message to the bureaucracy. We are not witch hunting! Even if you happened to work closely with the Sharifs or the Zardaris I have no issues. As long as you're competent and reasonably honest, you have a place in my administration! Only a person with his kind of honesty, courage, authenticity and transparency can do something like this. And he may yet make an honest mistake or two. That's ok. If he doesn't, how will he learn? If the TV media monkey chatter bothers you. Put on earplugs or better still listen to human beings or music! The Blue Moon has finally risen in Pakistan. A great future awaits us. Of that let there be no doubt. Great future for Pakistan, InshaAllah. Ilahi Aameen.
