Syed Faisal Raza Abidi was granted bail in a case of illegally possession of a weapon yesterday. After his release in Evening in he made an exclusive press conference. In that press conference he explained in very clear words about his mission and his cause.
“I am struggling to protect and revive the respect for ‘Uniform’ since 8 years and for this I was banned on media, resigned from seat of Senate. To defame Pakistan Army, Rangers is part of global conspiracy. Through shaking confidence of People on their armed forces many countries were destroyed like Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Such conspiracies are being designed in Pakistan against Military and Uniform.” said former senator Syed Faisal Raza Abidi in very emotional tone as usual.
“I reject those elements who were saying that behind my arrest was military or Rangers but this was Sindh Government which took that step and behind torture, firing and tear shelling in Malir 15 Karachi, registration of FIRs there was also Sindh Government. And there is no role in this of Military or Rangers”. Said Faisal Raza Abidi.
When crowd in front of him was chanting slogans “ Go Nawaz ,Go” then Faisal Raza Abidi stopped them and said, “ Not only it is Nawaz Sharif is part of problem but I say that democracy itself in Pakistan is real root cause and this has become cancer and we will have to uprooted it”.
“CCPO Karachi and politicians are hatching conspiracies against DG Rangers Sindh. These are politicians which are totally indifference on Issue of Shiite killing in Pakistan.Bilawal Bhutto did not take pain to go to house of those four Hazara Shia women who were targeted to death by Takfirists. Crop Commander Quetta visited there. Here in Karachi despite availability of all leadership of ruling party not a single representative or Government official on behalf of Sindh Government paid visit to the house of that where three real brother and their uncle were killed by Takfirists.” Said Faisal Raza abidi.
Former Senator Faisal Raza Abidi declared in the said Press Conference to start again his struggle against Takfirism and he invited young Shiite people to send his CV to become part of this movement along with character certificate issued by concerned Police Station. In words of Faisal Raza Abidi mission against Takfirism has two points:
1: To expose those forces who are trying to defame and demoralize Military and other security forces.
2: Struggle against Democratic System which has become cancer in Pakistan and sole responsible for Shiite killings.
He wants to gain his mentioned goals through uniting Shia and Sunni in Pakistan. When he was addressing a press conference then leaders of MWM Maulana Zafar Hassan and Allama Iqbal were sitting along with him. It means that leadership of MWM also supports views of Abidi.
My question is that here, why Syed Faisal Raza Abidi is trying to demonize whole political parties, current democratic political system? Why he is so interested to put the whole blame on civilians in the case of Shia-Genocide and emergence of Takfirism in Pakistan? Why he is obfuscating partisan role of security establishment in dealing with Takfiris and Jihadists?
One thing which comes in mind is that there are many Shia and Sunni Barelvis who have lost believe on our political elite. In Punjab many Sunni people are annoyed due to inclination of PML-N toward Deobandi Takfiris and they were lost believe after tragedy in Model town on 17 June. Non-stop Shiite genocide in Karachi and failure of PPP government in handling this made less popular it among many Shiite circle and this should not be treated just as a conspiracy against PPP but leadership of PPP should take it seriously.
In case of Nawaz Sharif we can accept that Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif have links with Takfiris Fascists like ASWJ and we can accept that both brothers are slaves of Saudi Arabia. We can accept that if he says that in every political party of Pakistan there are friends of Takfiris like in Judicial, Media, and in civilian and military establishments. But to curse all political parties and whole political system is totally wrong.
Syed Faisal Raza Abidi is trying to stand up emotional Shiite youth against democratic political camp and he want to use charged Shiite youth for this and he is paving way for those ambitious Generals to gain their set targets in tug of war for powers. I wrote many times that right wing Shiite and Sunni Barelvi religious camps having some strength to dent either seek support and patronage of political elites or of Bootwals and thus think that they can finish Takfiri Fascism, they think to do so they reverse process of Saudization of Pakistan. They think that to go along with security establishment and through following their lines they can break bonds between military establishment and so called Jihadi proxies or process of Jihadization of youth of Pakistan. Even these two camps from Shiite and Sunni Barelvi communities are supporting policies of center about Baluchistan and CPEC. It is not coincidence that Faisal Raza Abidi mentioned CEPC in his press conference. We can not ignore this fact that Syed Faisal Raza Abidi’s work and influence is in Karachi particularly in those areas where majority of Urdu-speaking Shiite families either are with MQM or with PPP. I am sorry to say his eight year struggle our hero FRA is more focused on shifting all blame to leadership of PPP and on glorifying security establishment. In the said press conference I felt that he tried to say DG Rangers, Security establishment are angel and PPP walas are demons. Already supporters of MWM had declared Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah ‘Yazeed’.
My question is that why we take Takfiri Fascism and Shia-genocide in Pakistan in framework of Civilian VS Military Establishment. Is it just coincidence that on one side these are commercial liberals who tell us that this is military establishment which is sole responsible of emergence of religious Fascism and killings of thousands of people in Pakistan. They falsely glorifying Nawaz Sharif as anti-establishment and real face of liberalism in Pakistan. They obfuscate links of political elites with Takfiri fascist lobby in Pakistan. They suggest us to stand up along with Nawaz Sharif and fight against military establishment while extending our support to Nawaz Sharif. And our heroes like Faisal Raza Abidi, Hamid Raza, Tahirul Qadri, Raja Nasir Abbas, and Amin Shaheedi tell us to chant long live Raheel Sharif, DG Rangers bla and bla and curse PPP, ANP and others. In my thought this is wrong approach to deal with Takfiri Fascism and Shiite genocide in Pakistan.
Without demonizing political parties, we can build a political and social powerful campaign against Takfiri Fascism in Pakistan. It is fact that neither political parties nor state institutions are ready to devise a clear policy against Takfiri Fascism and its symbols. Takfiri Fascist lobby is very organized, well-funded, well-structured and we can feel its presence everywhere from state institution to civil society. But Anti-Takfiri Fascism camp is divided, unorganized, scattered and its activists who are not linked up with some powerful lobby have no resources to organize themselves independently. Even my assessment is that Takfiri powerful lobby has ability to make more fissures among non Takfiri camp.
My suggestion is that progressive, liberal, democratic minded vibrant youth from Shiite, Sunnis, Christians, Hindus, and Ahmadis who are already activists and fully understand challenge of Takfiri Fascism should come ahead and sit together and they should build Anti-Takfiri Fascism movement in Pakistan.
