PAKISTANI NEWS OR BAHRAINI NEWS VERSION?
- I am a senior citizen in the stage called the “bonus life”. My father 96, died four years ago. Till his death he sighed about the “Gora Raj” when life of a commoner was really easy, cheap and safe. Government statements were blindly trusted and taken as guaranteed word. My Grands always wished “Gora Raj” to come back. In my old age, I freshly remember how easy and safe life I enjoyed till the end of Ayub Khan’s era. I saw the deliberately created start of indiscipline in every field both individually and collectively making it a national habit from day one, Zulfiqar Bhutto, the world’s first civilian martial law administrator took the rule. Progress to this indiscipline, chaos, national turmoil, cheating with masses, with each passing time marched past fast. Came Nawaz Sharif the first time, twisted-facts, lies, daylight white lies, false achievements/claims, both from the elite and the functionaries became the coin of the time.
