Elimination of terror mindset a Must to kill terrorism: PPP MNAs

 

 

Karachi : Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MNAs Mir Munawwar Talpur, Ejaz Hussain Jakhrani and Mir Shabbir Ali Bijarani said the 3 decades long unending wave of terrorism was the result of blunders by previous rulers of Pakistan, who had pushed the country on the flames of militancy. Pak Army had since long been at war against the curse of terrorism and had recently launched a decisive military operation Zarb-e Azb in country’s northern part and the paramilitary forces were doing their best to fight away the terrorism in other provinces in which Pak Army officers and troopers had laid their lives. However, only military operation was not sufficient to defeat terrorism.

Though the whole of the nation and political leadership was beside the army shoulder to shoulder and fully determined to wipe out terrorism from the country, it was now need of the hour that the entire civil society, academicians, intellectuals and notables from all walks of life should come forward and bring workable programme for the elimination of terror mindset without the curse of terrorism would perhaps not be eliminated, opined the PPP MNAs.

They said it was a horrible incident of suicide blast inside a mosque in Peshawar where a Pesh Imam (Prayer Leader) had carried the blast. The Pesh Imam had left behind a strong wave or premonition and uncertainty for the prayer performers, who would now fear whether the Pesh Imam was a suicide bomber, too.

Likewise, the involvement of highly educated youth in network of terrorism had emerged as the biggest question of today as the people would now be in a state of uncertainty whether the doctor, engineer or IT graduate was a terrorist or not, they added.

They said the scenario had pushed the people of the country into a blind alley of uncertainty and despair and hence it was the obligation of the civil society and academicians to pull them out through concrete programmes for the elimination of terror mindset.

Media, PEMRA should stop live program on Dr Mirza’s hooliganism: Waqar Mehdi

 

 

Karachi. 21.5.2015: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Sindh information secretary and Sindh Chief Minister’s Special Assistant Syed Waqar Mehdi while vehemently lambasting Dr Zulfiquar Mirza for his cheap and baseless allegations on former President and PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PPP Women Wing President and member national assembly Faryal Talpur said the conspirators had spared no moment to bring the political leadership and the electronic media face to face while these two aspect of the society were among pillars of the state. However, there were a few in sections of electronic media, who had either knowingly or unknowingly joined the conspirators and were facilitating them to ruin the Parliamentary democracy from Pakistan.

He said the character of an individual and at the national level as collective character had always played a role in rise and fall of a nation while the electronic media was the best modern tool to present our collective national character to the international fraternity.

If our collective national character was presented in a positive manner, it would help us rise with respect and self-esteem but if it was presented in a desperate and negative style, the nation would lose the morale and would face a fall. Henceforth, the media especially the PEMRA should devise a strategy to improve the entire media and should impose a ban on live appearance of people like Dr Mirza, who had crossed all ethical limits.

He said the non-stop Dr Mirza with highly filthy language had directly affected women and children at home while watching him live on their TV screens. Unknowing, the media was spreading a highly offensive and self-destructive life-style through Dr Mirza.

He said the viewers had now been fed up with ‘all the time hooliganism’ of Dr Mirza and wanted to get some refreshing entertainment, educational and recreational programmes and in case the media would fail to get pulse of their viewers, it would own a knock-out situation, which would also be a tragedy.

While addressing Dr Mirza, he said that Dr Mirza had now become a highly offensive and rejected personality but he had yet to realize this and the people now started believing him as penniless cheap goonda.
