What would have been the reaction if a Baloch, Pashtun, Sindhi nationalist had said the same thing that Ayaz Sadiq Sahib said yesterday? Wouldn't he be accused of treason?
Similarly, the speeches that Mian Nawaz Sharif is making, the way he is targeting the ISI chief and the army chief by name, who are tarnishing the statements made in G, would sometimes make statements to make Pakistani missiles controversial. We made the Babar missile with the reverse engineering of the Tom Hawk missile which fell on the territory of Pakistan and we handed it over to the army. Sometimes they say something else.
The question then is that if Mian Nawaz Sharif had not been the leader of Punjab, Punjab would not have been the political stronghold of his party, then the same reaction would have come to his statements as it is now?
Can any Baloch, Sindhi, Pakhtun, Seraiki nationalist afford to make such a statement? Or this freedom belongs only to the grandchildren of Punjab to do whatever they want, play with national security as they please, target military institutions on the basis of their likes and dislikes and, if they wish, violate the Official Secrets Act.
When our Baloch, Pashtun, Sindhi, Urdu speaking friends say that Punjab and Punjabis have maintained their monopoly on patriotism and they have become the uncles of the country, now it seems that they are not wrong.
Every word of PML-N leaders is being tolerated only because their constituency is Punjab and they are Punjabi leaders.
The question now is should this be the case? Does being a Punjabi mean that whatever will be toyed with, now in the case of Nandan, the Indian media should be provided with the material from which it can be used by Pakistan, the Pakistani army. Make fun of the Pakistani nation. Is that right
