PAK departing from Democracy due to military intelligence activities
Maj Gen Abdur Rashid (Retd), Security & International Relations Analyst: There are visible possibilities of military coup in Pakistan. The possibility of another military rule in the country cannot be blown into the air. The various types of incidents and their flows suggest that a devolution may not be possible for the sake of peace. The unstable state of the state is pointing toward difficulty in carrying out the national polls in a non-violent manner.
Who will be in power if the polls, for some reason, cannot be held within scheduled time? A constitutional crisis will then surface which is the ideal condition for a military coup. In the past, the army is always seen prepared for such an event. The death of over 150 people including the nominees is a strong indication for such an event to take place again.
Pakistani army had removed the elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from power three times. There is nothing more to understand about the Pakistan army. Often rounds of sinisters have surfaced centrin the nation. Reviewing the country’s militancy history, it is seen these are richly backed in there by the military intelligence agencies. Pakistan is also lagging behind because of the close affiliation of these militancy groups with Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Sailing far from the route of democracy, they’ve started losing people’s trust as well.
Pakistan Army should make sure that they do not violate the fundamental rights of a democratic country. But the problem is there are no ways to measure the amount of human rights being violated. A country’s independence loses its sovereignty if the justice and media lose their individual independence; such a pouring comment will pose mass confusion when comes of a justice of a country.
