NLC Scam - Dear Civilians, You are Doing it Wrong

By Xeric

I know, I know, it’s a belated case and after the clarification issued by ISPR there wasn't any need for further explanation. But then I thought this issue needs some more attention; as one, by court martialing its three Generals, Pakistan (Army) is creating history; and two, there are still people around us who will keep on mongering about this issue so that they can meet their daily quota of military bashing.

The thing is (the title) that we Pakistanis have lowered our standards to such an extent that anyone who possesses the art of sensationalizing even the minutest of the issues, almost all of us, without getting into the details or recourse to the other facets of the issue, would fall for the superficial  mirch masala, and from there on the actual issue will be consigned to oblivion, however the illusory details will become the talk of the day.

I say that my dear civilians are wrong in pointing fingers at the military especially after the Army has taken a principle stand over this issue, because if attention is paid to the details and the issue is analyzed objectively, one will find that there isn't anything worthwhile left to criticize, except to wait for the outcome of the court-martial. Funny right? Just keep on reading and you will understand why.

The problem started when media broke the news and instead of emphasizing over the fact that three Generals are under trial, focused on an ill-conceived notion that they have been reinstated pending their court-martial. Now there is nothing wrong in this either for two reasons; first, media will always sensationalize the news so that it can sell. Second, there wasn’t any clarification from the Army’s side as regards to the reinstatement of these Officers. However, this news was enough to provide those in 'love' with the military sufficient ammo so as to have a time of their life.
