HYDERABAD: 

Barely 48 hours after shaking up the country’s political landscape with his explosive press conference, former Sindh senior minister Zulfiqar Mirza on Tuesday decided to up the ante, repeating and adding to the many accusations he had previously hurled at the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Interior Minister Rehman Malik.

Addressing another press conference, this time at the Hyderabad Press Club, Mirza admitted that the average citizen does not have a favourable impression of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party owing to the current administration’s failure to deliver adequate services. He added that a band of ‘sycophants’ surrounded President Asif Ali Zardari – whom he continued to refer to as one of his closest friends – who prevented the president from seeing ‘the truth.’

Among those whom he specifically named as being responsible for the party’s state of affairs was once again Rehman Malik, whom he referred to with words that cannot be printed in this newspaper.

“I say this with sadness that we are not going to give Bilawal a good PPP and a good legacy,” said Mirza, who was once again holding up a copy of the Holy Quran during his press conference.

While his rhetoric had been somewhat harsh even on Sunday, Mirza’s words on Tuesday seemed to reach fever pitch, levelling highly incredible allegations against the MQM, accusing them once again of treason and even going so far as to say that the party was planning on acquiring nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

“The MQM is armed to the teeth with 150,000 AK-47 Kalashnkovs, around 15,000 rocket launchers, anti-aircraft guns, anti-tank mines and mortars and is now in the process of procuring nuclear weapons with the help of Uncle Sam,” said Mirza, making the MQM sound more like a rogue state government than a political party.

He repeated his allegation that the MQM had been willing to work with foreign governments to dismember Pakistan and even work with the United States towards regime change in Iran.

(Read: Zulfiqar Mirza should go to court and present his proof, says MQM)

“Uncle Sam was looking for a cruel, ruthless and sordid entity in Pakistan, which would be ready to sell the country’s honour and dignity. They found it in a party which said ‘give me $500 million and finish ISI and we will do whatever you want’, such as allowing Blackwater [a US defence contractor, now called Xe Services] and other groups and also to occupy Iran,” claimed Mirza.

Among the more specific allegations levelled by Mirza was the charge that Babar Ghauri, the former minister for ports and shipping, used his position to divert some of the arms and ammunition meant for Nato forces in Afghanistan towards use by alleged MQM-backed militant and criminal groups.

Mirza cited media reports that several Nato containers have disappeared on their way to Afghanistan as evidence for this startling claim.

He even went so far as to say that the MQM’s attempts to rejoin the ruling coalition – something that the party has so far not been willing to do – were in fact the product of their desire to continue their efforts to use government positions to arms themselves, including, oddly enough, importing Scud missiles, a short-range ballistic missile that became famous for its use by Saddam Hussain during the First Gulf War in 1991.

Mirza also called upon people of all ethnic groups to wage a jihad, though he did not specify against whom. But this call for jihad was interspersed between his comments against the MQM, leading many to believe that his remarks were directed at that party.

(Read: Analysis – What now after Zulfiqar Mirza’s bombshell?)

“If you do not dare speak up against these criminals who tempt you with the prospect of a completed term, they will bring Uncle Sam and every Tom, Dick and Harry to exploit your land,” he said, in remarks that seemed to be directed towards the leadership of his own party.

Mirza also praised the Interservices Intelligence (ISI) as a ‘well-organised, patriotic and well-trained’ entity that was ‘100% dedicated to the motherland.’

The former Sindh cabinet minister also highlighted the role of Sindhi politicians in the creation of Pakistan, saying that he did not feel the need to be grateful to another ethnic group for the creation of the country.

“It was these same so-called illiterate, stupid, feudal, aristocratic, lazy fat-cats in the Sindh Assembly who voted for the Pakistan Resolution,” said Mirza sarcastically, referring to the pre-Partition support for the creation of Pakistan by the then-provincial legislature in Sindh.

Mirza also claimed that the forefathers of several senior PPP leaders – including the fathers of Hafeez Pirzada, Hussain Haroon and the Khuhro family – were at the forefront of the movement for the creation of Pakistan, and asked what roles the fathers of senior MQM leaders, including Altat Hussain and Farooq Sattar, played in the Pakistan Movement.

When Mirza then opened up the floor for questions, he was asked by Farhan Effendi, the Hyderabad bureau chief for ARY One World, about this, though Effendi conflated Mirza’s questioning of the sacrifices of MQM leaders with that of all muhajirs. Mirza was upset at this mischaracterisation of his remarks and started yelling at Effendi, at which point Mirza’s guards started beating the journalist.

Only when the entire journalist community present protested did Mirza’s guards stop. Under pressure from the reporters, Mirza later apologised for the behaviour of his guards.

I think he forgot to mention the fire that engulfed the shipping buliding near Clifton-it was a deliberate fire to destroy all the evidence about cargo in ships and happened when Ghauri was the Minister of Shipping. Allah will hold accountable Musharraf too because he was the hakim when all this happened. All the ammunition that went missing is being used to kill innocent karachites. Do we have a bold judiciary to give us justice? Allah will hold them accountable too. The accountability factor is for those who believe in Allah and his accountability of us all, not for the non-believing Muslims.

    Things are clearing up a day after ZM’s tirade at the Press Club. It is getting apparent that having failed to dislodge MQM’s primacy in Urban Sindh through normal political means, and after getting thoroughly discredited by introducing the LB system, a new phase is being lodged to sway the Sindhi population towards PPP. For a change the Sindhi nationalist parties were beginning to gain some grounds, though minimal. Now the wizards in PPP have thought to embark on this journey. Let’s see where it leads. One can be sure though that it will not lead to anywhere good. Only good politics, good strategy, and good governance help the people. Shenanigans like these in the end not only amount to nothing they waste people’s time and energy. Now, the population, which already suffers from dogmatic illusions are influenced by the fact that ZM was holding the Quran while he was giving his statements so he must be absolutely truthful. Fact is that ZM conveniently did not comment as to who were the killers of Sher Shah Kabadi market and many other similar incidences. If I was him, giving statements of being die-hard Shia, I would have resigned immediately after failing to protect the 43 innocent victims of the Ashura procession couple of years ago. Shame on him and shame on the people who get swayed by antics of these characterless people. My statements in no way endorses the MQM, by the way. MQM also has much to be accountable for. And they should start by methodically and honestly responding to ZM’s allegations, however prepostorous they may be. It is not enough for MQM to just say that ZM should present his case in front of the court.

    Although some of ZM’s accusations against the MQM appear to be correct, he has gone overboard in his second press conference at Hyderabad. What casts doubt on his credibility is his continued affirmation of his friendship with and loyalty to Mr Zardari. The latter may be a clever politician as far as domestic power politics is concerned, his reputation and past record does not inspire much confidence. Secondly, all of ZM’s charges of sedition against MQM also implicate the PPP government directly as well as indirectly. The missing containers he is talking about could not have gone missing without the complicity or at least the incompetence of PPP government both at the center and in Sindh.
    The general perception about Zardari’s ‘truthfulness’ is no better than about Rehman Malik.

Please do not give the people like mirza more importance because look at his credibility..”Action speaks louder than voice” what he is doing, its obvious that he is protecting terorists in karachi.

    @Raja Islam:

    Since were talking biased reporting. I wonder why the party that won 17 of 20 parlimentry seats in the city of Karachi isn’t represented on such shows…while the parties that have less than 10% of the stake in Karachi are speaking out the most. What about the mandate? Let the stake holders speak.

    Since Mr Mirza had resigned as a minister and also declared that he is leaving politics, the best option for him was to take a holiday and go abroad to give a much needed rest to his over worked mind. He can even come to India and join any Art of living centre which would help him to attain peace of mind which he badly needs.

    LOOK WHO IS SAYING, this is the same guy who declared few months back that they were planning to break Pakistan before Zardari’s KHAPAY slogan. Points arise, is he and his group equipped enough with weapons so that they can even think of such act. Why he distributed 3 LAK licenses, to whom and how they funded these weapons. Why he presented his Resignation Drama as soon as the LIYARI operation was waged, huge weapons, torture cell and criminals were recovered. Why he always gives provocative statement, is he following the policy of PPP. Why he is enhancing hatred on lingual basis. May ALLAH bring peace and long live PAK. AMEENRecommend

    The only comments wh all thes facts when its happening and when this man is in power. This is as usal part of the game. The Blame on MQM should be clarified. But this is not intrest of ZM, PPP, PML (n), ANP or jamat. All wants to get som credit to somohow break vote bank in Karachi, If all knows, if ISI , Army everyone knows and not done anything. Then belive this is new game in hide out of so called of patriotism. Look Who is saying for ISI and Amry for country, whos party and people were actualy charged for terrosim for Hijacking, and break pakistan. I dont know who will do what, but once again after 1971, PPP and ZM are involve one more conspiracy of repeating 1971 event.
    But one this for sure, Atleast karachities and urdu speaking people who made pakistan, will stand against them, even at the cost of there lives to save Pakistan.
