Meher Bukhari has Salman Taseer’s blood on her hands as well

Zia Ahmad

The brutal assassination Salman Taseer has opened a can of worms in an already contaminated social landscape of Pakistan which is struggling with modernity in the second decade of the 21st century. The odious adulation over the extremist security turned homicidal goon Qadri is as disturbing as it is, the media was also not far behind in scoring sensationalist ratings on the Taseer/Asia Bibi fiasco. Below are two clips from Mehar Bukhari’s show on Samaa TV where she interviewed the late Governor on the 25th of November 2010. Observe the rabid antics of the above mentioned TV anchor and her uber-provocative assault on Mr Taseer. The media must draw a line on their point scoring, foaming behaviour and a call for the said TV anchor to take a fraction for inciting hate against Salman Taseer and pandering to the radical conservatives.

    A SLAP ON THE FACE OF ‘faux liberal and elitist’!!

    Weekend Edition
    January 14, 2011
    An Assasination in Pakistan
    A Political Murder or War?

    By M. SHAHID ALAM

    Pakistan’s English print media – faux liberal and elitist – have been
    in furor over the recent political murder of Salman Taseer, governor of
    Punjab, by his own bodyguard. Ostensibly, the governor was assassinated
    for his obstreperous stand against the judgment of a lower court to hang
    Aasia Bibi, a Christian woman, for blasphemy against the Prophet.

    One columnist in the Express Tribune, with high melodrama, proclaimed
    that the governor’s murder was the ‘death of reason’ in Pakistan.
    What reason and whose reason, Pakistanis might well ask, since
    Pakistan’s faux liberal elites have been strangulating the raison
    d’être of Pakistan’s creation for some sixty four years. More
    likely, the Tribune columnist feared the death of a different kind of
    reason: Pakistan’s wealthy and faux liberal elites, by carrying their
    treachery to extremes, by agreeing to rain death on Pakistanis from the
    skies, are losing the argument in Pakistan.

    Going off on a limb, the governor began attacking Pakistan’s
    blasphemy law, which has been abused by some Pakistanis to settle
    personal scores. Is it a fault in the law or its execution? Or is the
    cause a generally lawless society, where abuses of law starting at the
    highest levels of society are rampant; and Pakistan’s Christians are
    not their only unfortunate victims. Nevertheless, the governor
    erratically took up the cause of Aasia Bibi, and began railing against
    the blasphemy law, although every previous death sentence under this law
    has been reversed by the higher courts of the country.

    In the midst of a war against ‘extremists,’ it was unwise of the
    governor to call the law against blasphemy a ‘black law.’ Did he
    wish the law amended or repealed? If he believed it was ‘black law,’
    perhaps he wanted it to be repealed. Pakistanis worried that this was
    only the start of a campaign to repeal the law – and open the floodgates
    for Salman Rushdi-style smearing of the Prophet. Another law maker from
    the ruling pro-Western Pakistan People’s Party had announced her
    intentions to introduce a bill in the parliament to amend the law. Was
    this an initiative inspired by foreign embassies, some Pakistanis
    speculated, not unjustifiably in a country where Western embassies
    routinely poke their nose in the country’s domestic affairs.

    There are causes galore to champion in Pakistan. The disappearing of
    thousands of Pakistanis over the past decade – some renditioned to the
    USA under General Musharraf, the previous dictator – has been crying out
    for redress. Before the national elections of 2008, the governor’s
    ruling party had pledged to look into the cases of the disappeared
    Pakistanis. Once in office, that promise was forgotten. Indeed, the
    disappearances – especially in Baluchistan – have escalated.
    Legitimately, Pakistanis may ask, Why didn’t this crying shame provoke
    the governor’s ire – as well as a thousand other instances of
    victimization of the poor and disenfranchised?

    This murder is unfortunate: no reasonable person could disagree with
    that. Any death outside the law – and not a few inside the law – is
    unfortunate and a shame. Yet, should we see this murder only as the
    expression of growing religious fanaticism in Pakistan? One discordant
    fact to consider is that the slain governor had faced the ire of the
    Barelvi ‘ulama (religious scholars), who support the popular Sufism of
    shrine-worship, have worked with the government against hard-line
    Islamists, and, themselves have been repeated targets of terrorist
    attacks.

    It betrays extreme naiveté by Pakistan’s English columnists to
    examine the governor’s murder in isolation, abstracted from the
    context and the history of betrayals and conflicts that have bedeviled
    Pakistan especially over the last decade. To say this is not to excuse
    the governor’s murder but that is the only path to understanding why
    it happened, and why the assassin is being lauded by wide swathes of
    Pakistanis as a hero.

    Scan issues of the New York Times or any US newspaper for a story on
    Pakistan in the years immediately preceding September 2001 and – luckily
    for Pakistanis then – your pickings will be slim. Those were ‘normal
    times,’ in a manner of speaking. On January 4 and 5, however, Salman
    Taseer’s murder was splashed as a banner head by the web edition of
    the NYT. US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, described his murder as
    a “great loss.” The US ambassador in Pakistan, Cameron Munter,
    echoing his boss, lauded Taseer as “a champion of tolerance.” Now, the
    NYT has published an op-ed by the slain governor’s daughter. In
    another ill-advised move, Pope Benedict called on Pakistan to repeal its
    anti-blasphemy law. It would appear that the slain governor was in the
    good graces of the Empire.

    The times are not ‘normal’ when the murder of an appointed and
    figurehead provincial governor in Pakistan resonates so loudly in
    American media and draws attention from the US Secretary of State and
    the Pope. Pakistan’s plunge into abnormal times began shortly after
    September 11, 2001, when the country’s military rulers backed by its
    elites decided to join America’s war against the Taliban.

    At first, Pakistan’s military government offered air bases and land
    and air passage to the US military; this was only the thin end of the
    wedge. A country that had so wantonly surrenders such vital portions of
    its sovereignty would scarcely hesitate to barter the rest of it – at
    the right price. And so more deals were made, inflicting horrible wounds
    on the people of Pakistan that cry out for justice.

    Pakistan’s elites have never been too greedy when dealing with the
    Empire. At the rate of a billion US dollars a year, they were quickly
    cajoled into fighting the Afghan resistance operating out of Pakistan;
    they opened Pakistan and its institutions to infiltration by the CIA and
    American mercenaries; and many venal vendors of opinion were mobilized
    to demonize the Afghan resistance and their sympathizers inside
    Pakistan.

    Under US prodding, Pakistan’s rulers have divided the country’s
    population into ‘moderates’ and ‘extremists,’ – America’s
    ‘good’ and ‘bad’ guys – depending on whether they supported
    or opposed the US occupation of Afghanistan. As the Afghan and Pakistani
    resistance – inside Pakistan – have come under savage attacks from the
    US and Pakistan military, they too have responded with fury targeting
    the country’s security infrastructure but also – unfortunately – many
    civilians.

    Sadly, Pakistan’s decision to join America’s war was predictable.
    Soon after its creation, the Pakistani state fell into the lap of lumpen
    elites – landlords, military officers and bureaucrats – picked by the
    British and trained for several generations in traditions of
    subservience to their white masters. Instead of building on indigenous
    strength, these denatured elites bought their survival by cultivating
    economic, military and cultural dependence on the United States. Like
    many former European colonies, Pakistan is not yet free. Only the forms
    of foreign control, always working through domestic tyrannies, have
    changed: and the foreign hand that wields the whip now is in American
    rather than British hands.

    The struggle of Pakistanis for their country has just barely begun. It
    is part of a larger Islamicate struggle nearly all of whose constituent
    parts face the same problem: they labor under elites who have tied their
    systems of knavery to foreign exploiters and to one great power in
    particular.

    For most of its more than sixty years, Pakistan has been ruled by
    predatory elites who, in order to ingratiate their masters, have tried
    to mimic their manners, to hate what they hate, and to pretend to love
    what they love. So permeated are these elites with self-inflicted
    degradation, their multitudinous factions wrangle among themselves to
    undersell their country, and to place a lower value on the lives and
    honor of their own people.

    Wikileaks has now offers a peek into how Pakistan’s rulers pander to
    their masters. In August 2008, commenting on the subject of US drone
    attacks against Pakistanis, the current prime minister assured his
    American interlocutors, “I don’t care if they [the Americans] do it
    as long as they get the right people [the resistance]. We’ll protest
    in the National Assembly and then ignore it.” The military dictator
    who preceded him had boasted in his autobiography that his government
    had garnered US dollars 50 million by capturing and selling Pakistanis
    to secret US agencies.

    Pakistan’s suborned English media pretend that the murder of the
    Punjab governor is an isolated act. Their myopia blinds them to the war
    into which Pakistan’s elites have dragged the country, as they batten
    their foreign bank accounts, their jets warming their engines to fly
    them off to foreign destinations should Pakistan become too hot for them
    to carry on their game of deceit and treachery.

    Still, the murder of the Punjab governor was unnecessary: it was also
    contrary to the best traditions of Muslim history. The governor had
    acted unwisely in denouncing the blasphemy law, but that did not make
    him guilty of blasphemy. If his intent was to start a campaign to have
    the law repealed, the public protests had sent out a clear signal to the
    government that such a move would be unacceptable, even dangerous. It
    was certain to plunge the country into further chaos. Also, the
    President could have acted more wisely and settled the matter by
    reprimanding Salman Taseer or, better, retiring him from the office of
    governor.

    In better times, Muslim judges in Spain often forgave Christians who
    blasphemed the Prophet by declaring that they were insane or drunk when
    they blasphemed. They were awarded the death punishment only when they
    blasphemed repeatedly, demonstrating both sanity and intent to use
    blasphemy to challenge Muslim rule. Pakistan’s Supreme Court should
    urge the lower courts to look more carefully into cases of blasphemy to
    rule out malicious intent by those who bring such charges. It would not
    dishonor the Prophet to forgive a poor Christian woman of blasphemy – if
    that is what she had done in a fit of anger. It is what the Prophet
    would have done himself.

    To what extent can we go, how much we have to bend to please our masters is shown by a worthy contributor in his article, I quote

    How quickly we jump out of seats and look towards our masters if their eye brows and mustaches are not showing signs of fury. the elite of Pakistan start pissing in thier trousers. What a shame.

    @lindalinda_35

    It all depends on the vantage point one chooses to look at the picture. The elite lap dogs partner with the clergy to breed fleas. The halwa cooked between the between the so-called elite and the chest thumping clergy can never be halal.

    The bottom line is any system that creates disharmony through legalized bigotry is an illegitimate, unsustainable model. The Islamic Republic of Pakistan will remain flea ridden and will eventually cease to be if it chooses to keep its current course.

    The only way out of this shameful mess is for the state to take responsibility for governance and provide a sustainable system for people to live in this world. The life of the Hereafter is not the state’s responsibility and it must not meddle in the matters of religion. Allow an individual to handle the matters that are between him/her and Allah.

    Those countries which support efforts in Pakistan to modify the Blasphamy law could for a start permanently refuse entry in to their countries the likes of Meher Bukhari and the lawyers who came out in support of the killer Qadri.
