It’s an old habit of mine; I don’t know it’s good or bad, that I always take at things recalling the historic events. Many times it happens that events are closely linked with the past or some times thy look alike “action replay”. I don’t know that was on TV or in some printed thing I saw something which was about the changing the Chief Of Army Staff. Since than I am thinking about this and historical events.
In 1999 army spent its summer in an adventure of Kargill I don’t want to indulge in the out come and result of that expedition. And this year they were in Swat. The ruler was so powerful at that time that he became an elected dictator. Who became a pharos and wanted to be called the Ameer ul Momineen. Well the leader of the momineen thing is not on right now as after all the odds our respectable Mr. President know that where he stands so he will never try to be Ameer or something.
In those days as much as I can remember, I was not even in my teen then, things were turning towards worst. People were totally fed up of the government, corruption was on its pinnacle, and due to many things the ruler was not very much famous or favorite among the people than.
When I look at current situation more or less things are same. In 1999 ruler made a decision of changing COAS. It came out of no where and to me and many of us it was strange decision. The rest of the story is known to us; Army took over the Govt, COAS become Chief Executive of the State. It was good or bad I don’t know but I want to confess that I am one of them who welcomed Mush at that time (I have mentioned earlier that how much mature I was than).
Now come back to the piece of news. Mr. Kyani so far has been great as far as his role as COAS is concerned. Army has been so far successful in Swat Operation under his leadership, his role in the climax scenes of “Restoration of Judiciary” can not be taken away from his credit. Than why it is being thought to change the man on the post of COAS, after thinking for days I can not come to the reason.
But I have reached to a question that “ARE WE HEADING TOWARDS ANOTHER 12TH OCTOBER?”
