Reference to the Islamic history and Pakistan’s independence period, I want to go a step further and will recommend to select/elect every Chief of Army staff as president after retirement and the present Army chief should be be given extra time for his outstanding services at national and international level and all other Corps. Commanders of the Army and COS of Air force and Navy should be appointed Governors and Deputy Governors of the provinces and regions ( by creating regional governments in all four provinces, 2 in Punjab 1 in each province- these regions already exist based on language, culture and history , such as Saraiki, Potahari, Upper Sind-Sukkar, Dera Ismail Khan in NWFP and Gawadar- Balouch Area.
And all additional bureaucrats who love to live in provincial capitals should be transferred to these remote areas of the country. These new regions should invite and attract the foreigner and Pakistani origin people to invest in the area to create jobs and eliminate poverty.) This is the only way we can stop further interruption/ coup in Pakistan . After all armed forces personnel are well disciplined and organized . And above all represent Pakistan’s diversified population. And it’s leadership do not transfer within family but earned by hard work and talents only. Every second family in Pakistan is represented in the army one way or the other and the Pakistan Army is the only ever lasting popular party-yes it’s an important ruling party other than Bhuttos and anti-Bhuttos, Sharif brothers.
With this arrangement no one is loser except few feudals and industrialists, who repent of the masses in Pakistan. We already have a quota system applied for superior services since 30 years and had killed thousands of innocent talented young people, why not try this arrangement for the welfare of the country which will effect none but very few so called politicians who after all deal with generals, behind the curtains.And it’s good to know that supporters of these politician are 500/600 Mafia families who live in 125 districts in Pakistan and provide so called public leadership for national, provincial and local levels. Any restriction to stop them is useless. Recent example of education condition brought their unseen educated women forward in politics. All 8000/9000 candidates in recent elections were from the same mafia group who are the biggest law breakers and around 1000 leading law breakers have been elected as new law makers who will take care of themselves but none. They all are involved in worst kind of crimes on this earth against humanity with the colaboration of junior police officials.An inquiry by a neutral agency may prove my claim.
