Let’s play: 20 questions for Zulfiqar Mirza

Sindh’s former home minister Zulfiqar Mirza has announced his resignation from the government in yet another media circus.

During TV interviews he made personal attacks against journalists and politicians, making references to their facial features and appearance. However, his emotional outburst left lots of questions on the policy of the government unanswered.

A few questions I would like to ask Mr Mirza are:

1) If you claim to be so truthful, why have you never made these revelations before?

2) According to you, Rehman Malik does everything on the discretion of President Asif Ali Zardari. Why then is Rehman Malik accused of conspiring against the People’s Party and not President Zardari?

3) Is the president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari a fool to not understand the shrewdness of Rehman Malik?

4) Mirza Sahab, why did you never raise your voice in 2001 (or afterwards) when you got to know that MQM chief Altaf Hussain wrote a letter against the ISI?

5) What exactly made you speak up after the discovery of the torture cells and ammunition from Lyari?

6) You acknowledge that Rehman Malik is a “good politician and a good human being” but maintain that he is also a compulsive liar. What does this mean?

7) You placed the Holy Quran on your head and said that MQM has a false mandate in Karachi and Hyderabad. How many petitions have you filed in court about this?

8.) Why are superior courts, Pakistani forces and Pakistani law enforcement agencies not taking any action on the MQM’s alleged crimes? Is the MQM really that powerful?

9) CPLC recovered most of the kidnapped people from Lyari. Is this the reason why the CPLC chief, Ahmed Chinoy, has suddenly turned into a villain?

10) You seem to be very worried about the people of Sindh. Why are you obsessed with Karachi only? Has karo-kari, dacoity and corruption ended in interior Sindh?

11) How come you know “ALL” the killers except Benazir’s ?

12) You say that you will fight against the criminal elements of Karachi in your private capacity. Is this legal?

13) Keeping in mind that a civilian cannot take the law into his own hands, how would you decide who is a criminal and who is not?

14) You claim that you haven’t recruited any MQM worker in the Sindh Police, and that recruitment in the police department was done on merit only. If this is so, then why does corruption and incompetency still prevail in the Sindh Police?

15) Why are the ISI chief and Army Generals not taking action on your “substantiated evidence”?

16) When are you going to the Supreme Court to submit this evidence?

17)  How exactly have President Asif Zardari and the late Benazir Bhutto helped you in acquiring such a huge amount of money, villas, cars, sugar mills and thousands of acres of lands?

18) You alleged that during a meeting in London, the MQM chief Altaf Hussain had told you that America and other world powers had decided to ‘break’ Pakistan, and that Altaf Hussain had supported their idea. Since when has Altaf Hussain started sharing such secrets with you?

19) If America wants to break Pakistan up, according to you, then why did you go to the enemy country for a 40-day vacation?

20)  Sir, do you still stand by your slogan “Pakistan na Khappay” (We don’t want Pakistan)?

  2. Zulfiqar Mirza insulted muhajirs, spoke against Pakistan but today he is no less than Hazrat Ali and Rashid Minhaas for non muhajir community of Pakistan. Makes me wonder…without MQM…they would have done a mass genocide on muhajir community. I am now doubtful if muhajirs were right in leaving India ??..Tanzeel my friend, i miss u at IRP.

  3. TODAY IS THE VERY SHAMEFUL DAY FOR THE ZARDARI IF THE ZULFIQAR MIRZA’S STATEMENT ABOUT ABDUL REHMAN MALIK & ALTAF HUSSAIN IS TRUE, MR. MIRZA ALWAYS TALKING WITH OUT BASE, AND ALWAYS BACK & SAY SORRY ABT HIS BEHAVIOUR I THINK MR. MIRZA IS IN ANY TYPE OF PSICOLOGIAL PROBLEM, AND HE ALWAYS FARSTREAD DUE TO HIS LOW MANTILITY & SHOUTED LANGUAGE, BASICALY HE IS NOT ALIGIBLE FOR THE ANY PARTY & GOVT POST BIBI PROVE IN HIS LIFE THAT THE MR.MIRZA JUST A WORKER NOT A LEADER, HE IS A LOW MANTILITY MAN, MR.MIRZA’S PRESS CONFRENCE SHOW HIS PLANING HE WANT ANARKI IN KARACHI BETWEEN DIFFRENT LOCALITIES & WANT SECTARIN FIRE IN PAKISTAN, I REQUEST TO PRESIDANT MR. BARAAK HUSSAIN OBAMA & FORIGEN OFICE OF U S A, PLEASE TAKE SEREIOUSLY STATMENT OF MR. MIRZA ABOUT MEETNG WITH MR. ALTAF HUSSAIN REGARDING DEVIDING PAKISTAN, ITS ALSO A BLAME OF U S A, IF MR.MIRZA FOUND GUILTY MUST PUNISH HIM, IN MY OPINION MR. MIRZA IS A TRITOR OF PAKISTAN.

  4. Tanzeel, I must say, you write very well. Its a shame to see you writing such a biased article. Although, some of the questions raised are really nice and relevant, rest question your credibility as a writer. Questions to be raised should have focused on ZM’s accusations.

    Pity! How can you even sleep at night knowing that you are vouching for a terrorist organization? Dude, you are equally responsible for all the innocent killings MQM has committed (No i don’t support PPP, MQM, PML-N or any other corrupt party). Need I remind you how many people have been brutally killed by MQM?

    Shame on you man. Shame on you. If you cant raise your voice against tyranny, don’t support it man. Not everyone is gifted with such a beautiful articulation of speech and writing. You my friend, are a waste. To the core.

    1. Mir if you notice in this particular case I am not supporting any party I have just asked few questions from Mirza that are labelled as relevant by you. How could you be so naive that suddenly you have called me supporter of terrorist party. Does criticizing Mirza make me supporter of terrorists ?

      1. Bro, his statements were selective truth at worst, so why not go after the biggest goon in town that is the MQM. This was a peaceful city before MQM was here. Every supporter of MQM would agree with what Mirza said the only answer they’d come up with is why didnt he also say this and that and a whole lot of other truth.

        I must say you are focusing on the wrong thing here and doing a great disservice to the country.

  5. Tanzeel – very bad did not expect that out of you. If this is the case then liberals are doomed, For once step back from your personal affiliation and think about the whole picture. How do you say that ISI has not taken any action, maybe they have started investigation or maybel they already knew, Now they wouldnot ring you up before doing anything, I mean you crave for attention but comon you cannot get protocol of president just because you blog. seriously!

  6. sindh ki dharti pe 2 be ghairat gadhe kutte kaminey bhangi insan peda hue hain 1 zulfiquar mirza 2 shahi syed dono quran ki be hurmati kar rhe hain

  7. So far I was thinking on the same lines that if Mirza knew too much then why he kept silent and what made Mirza burst out now. As I was desperately waiting for MQM stance and clarifications against accusations but frankly speaking MQM press conference was little disappointing to me and to lot more people like me. Who always got impressed by MQM’s spokespersons .I thought that MQM taking time because they want to give MIrza a KARARA JAWAB but unfortunately this time MQM’s press conference didn’t work. Even it made more confused. Despite thinking and getting bewildered I concluded that time will tell what actually Mirza and MQM are up to?

    1. MQM was not in a mood to respond him at all but media hype made them reply. I think it was enough Karara Jawab to give him a shut up call. They have better things to do than to indulge in ad hominem cross fire with people like Mirza. MQM is too BIG for Mirza , we should realize this fact.
