Asian image Published on the Asian Image Website

By Majed Iqbal- Pakistan Independence day will be celebrated in full swing today by the young and the old to mark the day which saw the formation of Pakistan in 1947. Pakistanis will be jumping with joy with festivities, speeches, and remembrance of the sacrifices made to bring the country into existence.

Without a doubt, the feeling of being liberated and having a homeland to be able to live freely and choose a lifestyle suitable to your culture, history and civilisation is unmatchable to anything.

However, if one was to pause and reflect on even just the last decade or event the last year of the country’s history, those jumping with celebratory independence passion would stop in reflection.

Pakistan has been subject to foreign intervention, and that’s not referring to the ‘insurgents’, but to America since 2001, and has been the subject of threatening behaviour from White House officials which has even made Pakistani Parliamentarians jump out of their seats.

American policy is actively working to dismember Pakistan into three states. A separate Baluchistan, Punjab and NWFP. A view which has not been hidden or covertly been worked on, but rather one which  is open and has been mapped out by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a US think thank, otherwise referred to as the Neo-cons.

Jubilant Pakistan independence day celebrators must stop and think; in the next coming years will Pakistan as a nation cease to exist like the former Yugoslavia which was fractured into small statelets?

The Political parties in Pakistan are well aware of these plans as they are in the public domain and have been briefed by the ISI on them. So why deal with a foreign power who is designing to shatter your country?

The Political circus act between Zardari, Sharif and Musharraf continues in the midst of this which has sickened the population. Their failures have led the country into civil war, economic decline, huge corruption, social degradation, educational backwardness and a huge rise in prices of basic necessities like gas, water, electricity, wheat and sugar whose production is being sold off to foreign multinational companies whilst the country is brought to gridlock.

If celebrations are out about Pakistan gaining its independence in 1947, one should question, is it an independent country today?
