The options MQM has for its political drone attack
DUBAI: As intense speculation has gripped the political scene after the dramatic announcement by MQM chief Altaf Hussain that he would make a political drone strike in 72 hours, analysts have started looking at the options that he has to create a situation or make a decision that could be a game changer.
Many MQM leaders in Pakistan have suddenly stopped responding to media queries about the bombshell announcement of their leader and the head of the MQM legal team which will appear in the Supreme Court on Monday, Barrister Farogh Naseem, told the media only Altaf Hussain knew about his plan and no one else could speak about it.
But analysts said the MQM chief has just a few limited options and given his active and resolute participation in the long march of Dr Qadri, these options can be further reduced to two or three at the most.
“Whatever drone attack he is planning, it has to match with the declared goals and objectives of the long march, as anything which militates against or creates doubts about the Jan 14 march would be counter productive,” a seasoned analyst said.
Three options have already been aired in the media, which include the sudden return of Mr Hussain to Pakistan, pulling the MQM out of the PPP-led coalition and the assemblies and a surprise appearance in the Supreme Court, which has summoned him in a contempt of court case.
Of these options, breaking away from the PPP could be a welcome step for Dr Qadri but it would not have any substantive impact on the goals of the long march except that Altaf Bhai would be spared of the media and political criticism that is being hurled at him after his decision to join Dr Qadri.
Likewise, pulling out of the assemblies will only have a marginal impact and when I asked Dr Qadri about this possibility soon after the MQM had announced its support, the Allama brushed the prospect aside saying it was no longer relevant as the assemblies were already ending their terms in a few weeks.
His appearance in the Supreme Court may ease his problems in the specific case of contempt but it will otherwise have a big impact on Karachi politics and MQM workers would be energised for the elections.
His leaving UK at this particular time may raise some questions as Scotland Yard is carrying out an investigation into Dr Imran Farooq murder and he has also been asked to cooperate but linking his departure with that case would not be fair until and unless the Scotland Yard speaks about the case.
Yet even if he does not leave UK and does not come to Karachi, the election prospects of MQM would not be affected in any negative way as his party has won these elections without his presence many times.But MQM’s media person, Wasay Jalil, shot down speculation about these prospects saying Altaf Bhai was not coming back to Pakistan.
“Whenever he will come back the same will be decided and announced much in advance. When he will return he will be given a great welcome but that time has not come yet. Altaf Bhai will never come on such a short notice.”
About speculation that MQM might leave the coalition, Wasay Jalil said this would also not happen. “MQM will not leave the government now as it is almost the end of the tenure and there is no such possibility.”
But about the political drone attack, he said none of the members of the Rabita Committee had any idea as to what announcement Altaf Bhai is going to make. But he clarified that Altaf Bhai’s statement will be of political nature and it has nothing to do with leaving the coalition or Altaf Bhai’s return to Pakistan.
So with these three options shot down, there are only two possible options that can have a big impact on the national scene which can further the goals of Dr Qadri and his massive campaign to first force a change in the electoral system before elections are held.
Dr Tahirul Qadri told me on Sunday night he again had a detailed talk with Altaf Bhai and the only thing he said about the “drone attack was that it would silence the critics who were throwing mud and stones at him (Dr Qadri).”
Analysts said one of the options that can be exercised by the MQM chief is an announcement of a boycott of the forthcoming polls by MQM until the system of elections is materially changed. This could create a huge problem for the PPP and other parties, though many voices will be heard saying it would not matter.
On the contrary it would, as Karachi would not be properly represented in the next assembly if elections were held without MQM. And in a divided house, the solid MQM bloc plays a pivotal role in the formation of coalition governments.
The MQM has a history of boycotting the polls and when in 1993 and 1997 they had abstained, the results in Karachi were lopsided and the commercial capital of the country could not stabilise for normal business and political activity.
But the decision would go a long way to support the demand of Dr Qadri to change the electoral system before the next elections are held. It would match the political walk with the loud talk.
The second option Mr Hussain can have is to demand a referendum on the system of elections before polls are held and this could be ordered either by President Zardari or the Prime Minister.
It should be remembered that just in the last couple of months Mr Altaf Hussain had announced a referendum on whether Pakistanis wanted the Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam or the Pakistan of the Taliban. That referendum was to be held first on November 8, 2012 but was put off till November 16 and then indefinitely. A petition had also been filed in the Sindh High Court.
Viewed in the context of the demand by Dr Qadri and supported strongly by MQM, the demand for a referendum would fit with the objectives of the long march and if the marchers can force the establishment and the political parties to agree and give a date, a constitutional and a pleasant end to the long march could be achieved.
Whether other political parties would agree and what would be the question set in the referendum is too early to be discussed but it can become a game changer in many ways.
خدا اس قوم و ملک پر ڈرون گرانے والوں، خود کش حملے کرنے والوں، نم دھماکے کرنے والوں، بوریوں میں لاشیں بند کرنے والوں، ٹارگٹ کلنگ کرنے والوں، پاکستان اور محسنان پاکستان کے بارے میں بکواس کرنے والوں اور اس ملک کے نمک حراموں کو نیست و نابود کرے
اور اس ملک کو ہمیشہ قائم رکھے - آمین

Why making so much of a speculation when the cat is about to come out of bag only 24 hours from now. At least three powers are in touch with Altaf Bhai, one foreign and two Pakistani. Not less than Rs.5 billion have been invested on Operation Maulana-Canada project. The force behind this project knows well without a massive long march their interests (whatsoever) would not meet ends. So their obvious pick was MQM. The forces behind operation maulana-canada are most probably the same that were behind Imran Khan, but now it looks they believe they were wasting time and money. These unnamed forces are hell bent to annihilate Pakistan's nuclear network. So, I can safely say Army is not behind the maulana, and neither are intelligence agencies behind this drama. Yet, you see with how much confident face and style the Maulana is giving statement in print and electronic media. The danger is not for Zardari, it is for Nawaz Sharif that has gained some edge over the former for the next election. If at all MQM in London got some crores which looks like they did then like a good dealer they would have to honor the deal on 14th of January. If Rehman Malik assured London MQM that the evidence of the two assassins could never be given to Scotlandyard and that these guys could never be produced in British courts, then MQM has nothing to fear. Altaf Bhai never says anything meaningless. "Parday men rahnay do parda na uthao" was a message given to some authority. I think only 24 hours remains for raising the curtain.
We are totally forgetting one important factor (just because media didn't highlight this for reasons best known for them). The Chief Justice and Chief Executive of Pakistan in gathering made a loud and clear statement "all efforts to derail democracy would be made futile". This he announced a day or two days back. This was in reference to the recent planned disturbance, chaos and mass killing resulting from the expected long march and ultimately Army takeover.

I would love to see a refrendum question structured around ending feudalism in Pakistan.
Some sort of ceiling on land-holdings for the members of Parliament should be introduced.
I'm pretty sure the civil society will back such an idea and we could start a movement similar to the "Restoration of Independant Judiary".
That would be great legacy for Altaf Bhai as well.
بہت شکریہ بھائی جی
بالکل درست کہا ہے کہ اگر آپ نے کوئی گناہ کیا ہے یا کوئی جرم کیا ہے تو پہلے اسکا اعتراف کرکے اسکی تلافی کرنی چاہئیے اور اصل سبب کو دور کرنا چاہئیے اور توبہ بعد میں ہوگی
یہی تو ہمیشہ سے میرا موقف رہا ہے

کیا یہ تینوں وہی طاقتیں ہیں جو این آر او کے بھی پیچھے تھیں؟
بعض لوگ غلطی کی تلافی کو کتوں سے تعبیر دیتے ہیں
اور کسی سیاسی لیڈر کی بجا محبّت یا نفرت نہ دل میں نہ رکھنے کا دعوا کرنے والوں کے ٩٠ فیصد تھریڈس ایک مقصوس پارٹی کے بارے میں ہی ہوتے ہیں
اس سے منافقت کا اندازہ لگانا مشکل نہیں

All parties having root from feudalism condemning TUQ long march.
All parties representing majority of middle class or forwarding middle class and opposing feudalism are supporting agenda of TUQ.
کون غلط ہے اور قابل مذمّت اور کون سہی ہے قابل تعریف ہے
