At such a crucial time and socio-economic change around us unfortunately we are suffering from another dilemma inside our country where one political leader with a narrative that is by most people considered to be based on false assumptions that his government was over thrown by a US conspiracy is leading a few thousand people towards the capital of the country from Lahore which is on a distance of 400 kilometers from the capital.In reality Imran Khan is the first Prime Minister in the history of Pakistan who got ousted by a democratically held vote of no-confidence in the National Assembly of Pakistan after holding the office for four years. Not only the public but also the National and Provincial Ministers were fed up by his tactics of threatening first and then putting opposition leaders and members behind bars through unlawful use of state machinery by either pressurizing them or blackmailing the top official over personal recordings and videos which has been proven after some clips appeared on the social media and the then head of an intelligence agency appeared in an interview and told the story of how he was pressurized into making cases against the opposition leader and his family to put them behind bars. If anything US should be glad of all the destruction brought upon this country during the tenure of the past government than to overthrow it. To support this argument, there is not a single mega project that the ousted PM let alone completed but even initiated. Multiple scandals of corruption by high officials such as CM Punjab appointed by the ex-PM surfaced soon after he was voted out of the office due to lack of confidence in his governance. The ex-PM has been disqualified from the ECP on charges of hiding assets that comes under corruption due to which he is no longer able to contest any elections. The real reason many suggest why he is marching towards Islamabad is to put pressure on the institutions so that they reverse the decision of his disqualification and provide him relief in the ongoing investigations against him and his party for the deeds they have been accused of doing while in power. There has been a leaked audio of one of the active ex-MNA from KPK who has been heard arranging guns and ammunition and ‘’men’’ for when the march enters Islamabad. It really needs to be assessed whether this is just a protest or the capital of Pakistan amidst such important era in the international politics is going to be held hostage. Track record of previous protests and sit-ins which caused billions in losses to businesses and property of the capital and the leaked information on the social media of communications of important party members suggests the latter. There is a high security risk as suggested by the intelligence agencies from external enemies during this uncalled-for march towards Islamabad as this could raise unprecedented chaos in the country if such a thing were to happen. The recently repaired relationship between Saudia and Pakistan, which was ruined after the Crown Prince, found out that his gifts were rather sold in the market than worn by the Ex-PM and his spouse could again be on stake if something unfortunate were to happen. Pakistan recently got out of the grey list of the global money laundering watchdog FATF after a lot of effort and it was expected that things would take a turn for the good after this but if anything unfortunate were to happen then that too would be on stake. Keeping all these external and internal matters in mind it needs to be thoroughly assessed by the Ex-PM if this is really the right time to be doing this kind of ‘’long-march’’ that has already claimed the life of an innocent journalist.
Imran Khan and his aids need to reassess whether he is so sure of the narrative of foreign conspiracy that they are ready to go to such lengths for the sake of getting into power again or they should rather give time to the current sitting government and let the public decide in the next general elections which are due sometime during the end of next year.
