تحریک پاکستان کے سپوت اور پاکستانی صحافت کے بانی کی سانحہ سقوط مشرقی پاکستان پر لکھا ہوا اداریہ جس میں انھونے اسوقت کے پاکستانی حکمران اور میڈیا کی کمزوریاں بیان کی اور دکھایا کے کس طرح ہمارے دشمن کو ہم پر فوقیت حاصل ہوئی۔ انھونے ھندوستان کو سفاک دشمن قرار دیا اور مکتی باہنی کو غنڈوں کی صفت سے نوازا۔

It’s not just how the 70-year-old apologized profusely to the 7-year-old. And it’s not just how he cried on live television in a discussion on how Pakistan lost territory in 1971, as his grandson cried with him. Here is the founder of Pakistan’s media revolution, and the man who led the media war for Pakistan’s Independence Movement, through the eyes of his grandson on the 19th anniversary of his death.
This story shows how India is a large country with the mindset of a mouse. It demonstrates how Indian spy agents spend hours dissecting a public website of the Pakistan Army. In this case, an Indian intelligence officer analyzing the names of Pakistani martyrs posted on Pakistan Army’s official website thought he ‘discovered’ something. He shared it with Indian Army chief. Now all major Indian newspapers are celebrating this discovery. Amazingly, one of the official websites of President Zardari’s PPPP is also joining Indian celebrations. Here, a Pakistani website, Brasstacks.pk, shows how the Indian military might have been taken for a ride by incompetent intelligence officers.
Complaints in Pakistani media about selective and politically-motivated manipulation of WikiLeaks cables by New York Times, Guardian and Der Spiegel prompt the whistle blowing website to expedite the release of cables on India.
Several Pakistani newspapers presented a funny scene next morning: falling over each other to apologize and explain. Pakistani giants were ruffled by a British newspaper that offered its own interpretation. None of the Pakistani giants had it in them to assess and reach their own conclusions.
Indian media publishes what Pakistani media groups apologized for | More leaks confirm The Daily Mail’s report that was carried a day later by others | Wikileaks starts posting cables from US Embassy in India on its site | Wikileaks claims having 1,300 secret cables from US Mission at New Delhi | The Guardian’s claim and Indian media’s stance of no cable about India from US Embassy amongst the Wikileaks database evaporate suddenly | Indian newspapers publish new Wikileaks against India | Indian papers publish what US Ambassador to India wrote about 26/11, Why Karkare was killed? | Certain Pakistani media houses termed the same report as fake, apologized for publishing the facts
Singapore’s Ambassador at Large criticized India and its foreign policy in Asia during a meeting with US diplomats.
The Daily Mail’s story was dubbed ‘fake’ by The Guardian, which denies there is anything that embarrasses India in leaked US diplomatic cables. A couple of Pakistani newspaper prematurely ‘admitted’ it’s a hoax and one newspaper offered its own conspiracy theory, ‘It’s the work of agencies.’ Here is the editor of the newspaper explaining his side of the story.
CANADIAN WRITER JUSTIN BODUR: We should get used to looking at the cables themselves, and not letting the Guardian or anyone else (including Wikileaks if it comes to that) interpose themselves. That really is one of the most amazing things about Wikileaks – not that it gives the data to the Guardian, but that it gives the data to anyone. That is part of the reason that there is this unbelievable global persecution of Wikileaks going on (and not, for example, of the Guardian).
UK’s Guardian newspaper declared that WikiLeaks on India are fake. Really? Is US envoy Timothy Roemer’s cable of 16 Feb. 2010 calling Indian military “slow and slumbering” fake? Didn’t he call Indian military doctrine a “myth”? Guardian, along with NYT and a German magazine, ruined the good work of WikiLeaks by selectively releasing cables angled to attack nations at odds with US, British and Nato policies.
A new study released by Project For Pakistan In 21st Century in Islamabad advises the Pakistani government and military to adopt a ‘calm and defensive’ posture in dealing with US military threats against the country. The report reveals that the United States is using two words in its approach toward Pakistan: ‘Fragmentation’ and ‘Mistrust. The cover of the study uses the expression ‘Divide Your Enemy’ to reflect Washington’s current Pakistan policy. Project Pakistan 21, as the think tank is known, is an independent policy research institute based in Islamabad.
Why should the US government respect us when we undersell ourselves?
It is amazing that the mainstream US media is now deciding how the Pakistani media should conduct itself. It is a natural follow-up to US politicians and think-tank types deciding who should rule Pakistan and who shouldn’t, and who should be the designated enemy of Pakistan and who isn’t. In blaming the Americans, we also blame ourselves, our political and military rulers who emboldened foreigners to meddle in our affairs.
Pakistan says Nobel Prize for peace for the year 2010 went to a convict who did not deserve it. Islamabad lauded China’s contribution to world prosperity and peace and condemned the ‘politicization’ of the award and using to meddle in other nations’ internal affairs.
The Nobel for Peace 2010 should be seen for what it is: a cheap, below-the-belt political hit disguised as a peace award. Guess who was going nuts watching China and Europe getting closer just before this spoiler was thrown?
