What the #SupremeCourt Order fatally doesn’t appear 2 account for is the following: (1) Political parties run as fiefdoms/personality cults in Pakistan. What if the party head does egregious things or becomes an erratic & dangerous egomaniac or otherwise 1/5 #COAS #HamzaShahbaz
undermines democratic principles/norms or commits other outrages? (2) What if he then becomes entrenched because of the initial calculus of seats? Is a member then bound to not dissent on essentially national & larger than party considerations? An additional question is that 2/5
what’s the point of any voting at all? Everything is predetermined by electoral outcomes as to numbers in assembly. Members should then just sign over to party their votes to be used as it wishes. VONC becomes ineffectual except if coalition partners break off. While clamping 3/5

These are dark times. But for different reasons for different people. In this doom & gloom I see 15 positives. Call me an eternal optimist. My perspective purely that of someone who wants to see civilian supremacy, democratic continuity & constitutionalism. So here goes 1/10
1) IK’s ouster has meant resounding PTI attack on role of Deep State (for wrong reasons - they want it to help) but that means a larger section of Pakistanis questioning Deep State
2) Deep State seems to be questioning its role & may likely stay neutral in next election 2/10
3) PTI made multiple blunders & now hiding behind international conspiracy narrative. Signs that narrative will be fully exposed. Will force it to hopefully rethink & have a real manifesto
4) A vocal & mobilized PTI puts pressure on PDM to perform. So far they 3/10

#PTI supporters manipulated the platform and propagated the hashtag #امپورٹڈ_حکومت_نامنظور Imported government rejected) through inorg activity. A sample of 100,000 tweets shows original posters’ number was ~32,000. That might be the reason y the # didn’t appear on world panel.
I am collecting multiple datasets by using different platforms to cross check these initial findings.
Okay. I analyzed more data. Now I have a total sample of 7,36,000 tweets with the hashtag Imported-Hakomat-Namanzor till April 13. Since the # is going on, so more data coming in. Key findings: 1) 1,08,000 unique accounts sent all the tweets. 2) 13k were created since Apr 01.

Massive vilification campaign targeting #Pakistan, the Supreme Court, Parliament, and Armed Forces has been traced to individuals close to ex-PM #ImranKhan's inner circle, including spreading fake story of a #US drone attack on 🇵🇰, meant to bolster Khan's anti-West narrative. /1
A key aide to former PM #ImranKhan is sought by @FIA_Agency for links to a massive anti-#Pakistan campaign in retaliation to decisions by the Supreme Court and Parliament nullifying Khan's illegal actions and ousting him in a historic vote. /2

The intense anti-#Pakistan campaign from inside the country following #ImranKhan's ouster has caught the attention of digital media+cybersecurity experts. Khan's #PTI has run one of the most potent vilification & hate-spewing media ops in 🇵🇰 pol history./3

افواج پاکستان کے خلاف انتہائ غلیظ اور گمراہ کن مہم چلائ جا رہی ہے۔

کچھ لوگ جو کبھی افواج کی عزت کرتے تھے وہ سارے آج فوج مخالف بیانیہ نشر کر رہے ہیں
کا حکومت چھوڑنا فوج اور خان دونوں کا متفقہ فیصلہ ہو سکتا ہے
یہ #PMIK کے لیے بہت اچھا فیصلہ ثابت ہو گا۔
کی حکومت اتحادیوں کی مسلسل بلیک میلنگ کا شکار تھی اور اکثریت نا ہونے کی وجہ سے عملی طور پر بےبس تھی
کو یہی مشورہ دیا ہو گا کہ آپ حکومت بچانے کے بجاۓ عوام کے اندر اپنی جڑیں مضبوط کریں۔
یہ واحد رستہ ہے جسکے ذریعے IK آئندہ الیکشن میں بھاری اکثریت حاصل کریں گے
ذرا سوچئے ؟
اپنی مدت پوری کرتے تو کیا انکے ساتھ بھرپور قومی سپورٹ ہوتی جو آج ہے؟
مہنگائی مس منیجمنٹ کی وجہ سے عوام سخت کرب سے گزر رہی تھی۔
مگر عدم اعتماد نے قوم کو IK کے ساتھ مضبوطی سے کھڑا کر دیا.
دوسرا ہمارا موجودہ جمہوری آئینی عدالتی نظام IK کے لئے بڑا مسئلہ ہے

Q: How do you see security cooperation with China progressing in the next decade?
▫️We are not looking for camp politics.
▫️We had historically excellent relations with US. The good army we have today is largely built and trained by US. The best eqpt we have is US equipment
We still have deep cooperation with US and our Western friends. A month back American Air Force was here for a huge exercise with our Air Force.
▫️China of course is a very important neighbour and has helped us in many ways. Our military cooperation with China is growing because
we are denied equipment from the West. Many of the deals which were concluded have been cancelled. So what do we do. I shall just give you an example: We bought T129 helicopters from Turkey, it's a very good machine, the deal was signed, it's a defensive weapon, it's a gunship...

#Pakistan's military releases first official statement on a terrorist attack in #Kech bordering #Iran & close to #Afghanistan that resulted in 10 soldiers and 1 terrorist killed, several attackers injured. 3 terrorists have been captured after an intense battle. /1
The attack occurred on the night of 25/26 Jan 2022. Terrorists attacked a security post of a paramilitary followed by "intense exchange of fire," according to a #Pakistan military statement. A clearance op is still underway around #Kech, a #Balochistan district bordering #Iran /2
Capturing of terrorists alive is a breakthrough that can assist in intelligence gathering but the high casualty figure in the latest attack caps a rising wave of terror attacks mainly along #Pakistan's border regions with #Afghanistan and #Iran that have picked since 2020. /3

Interesting coincidence that #US @DeputySecState Wendy Sherman is in #Pakistan two days after her #Iran counterpart Deputy FM Ali Bagheri was here. DepSecState @wendyrsherman played a key role in the original #JCPOA negotiations. /1 ImageImage
#Iran Deputy FM visit in the same week is coincidental. @DeputySecState Wendy Sherman's visit is focused on #Afghanistan, and the "important and longstanding #US-#Pakistan relationship," in her words. Here's @StateDeptSpox statement on the meeting with NSA @YusufMoeed. /2 Image
DepSecState Sherman's visit comes at the intersection of several issues: topping the list is #Afghanistan, but also jitters in #India at the renewed #USPakistan engagement, and the regional security situation [#Gulf+South Asia+#China]. /3

After #COAS #Bajwa again talking about #5GW and the threat #Pakistan faces, the #PTI government has still been unable to restrict the access or approach of any of these groups.

#Warfare, especially in today’s connected, camera friendly world, is much easier to wage.
Nations can steal elections with the right strategy. They can change narratives with hostile actions. They can create hate and distrust.

We have all of these happening in today’s #Pakistan.

And the govt is sleeping...
From #PTM/#TTP to baseless rumors mongering, #Pakistan has become a battleground that is being lost due to no one bothering to understand the problem and its solutions.

That’s the distrust they showed in us. No one trusts the other when it comes to defining the problem.
