- Then the government was incapacitated into taking no action against the Ahrar's terrorism due to political considerations in the fragile new Pakistan, and inadvertently let the conditions between 1948-1952 exacerbate by wavering in its determination to curb the politically motivated religious fanaticism of the Ahrar leading to the riots of 1953 in Punjab against the Ahmadis and the concomitant declaration of Pakistan's first martial law in Punjab. In other words, then, as is evident from the Munir Report, the situation was created due to political incompetence and political calculus of the political officialdom in the new Pakistan that the law and order deteriorated to that extent. Meaning, the officialdom did not want it, and the Ahmadiya killings occurred because of keeping political stability was deemed more important than immediately curbing the law and order situation with a just but unflinching hand and possibly exacerbating the situation.
- Whereas today, virtually all the power-wielders in Pakistan, some within the govt., both federal and state, I am sure also district down to the local thaana (police station) level, and some within the Military and nearly all of the intelligence apparatuses, and some within the media, I would say all the media both local and foreign, and also big businesses (including enterprises like Nestle Pakistan that has been supplying water to the occupation troops in Afghanistan for the past 12 years and part of officialdom in no less a measure than those officially drawing a salary from the national treasury), comprise the 'new Ahrar'. And, therefore, unlike what one sees in the Munir Report of repeated governmental officials writing memos to senior administrators and leaders to take stern action against the Ahrar, one will surely find no such memos in today's government as all the officialdom is together the 'new Ahrar'. I have already analyzed why I they think the officialdom of Pakistan is the 'new Ahrar' under the title 'The New SAVAK in Pakistan'.
