21 2013 3:05 am Related News On Saturdaythe Pakistan National Assembly was dissolved after completing five years This is an unprecedented achievement Even under Zulfikar Ali Bhuttono democratically elected legislature had lasted for a full term And the work accomplished by this legislature is in many ways truly remarkable Not only have Pakistans MPs restored the parliamentary character of the 1973 Constitutionbut a whole series of constitutional amendments starting with the 18th have promoted federalism at the expense of Punjabi dominationsignificantly upgraded the independence of the judiciarycreated a powerful Election Commission and introduced a procedure for conducting elections the democratic waya procedure that implies the designation of a caretaker prime minister during the time of the campaign These amendmentswhich required qualified majoritieshave been made possible by the collaboration of different political partiesincluding the ruling PPP and its old rivalthe PML(N) This is probably one of the most interesting developments of the past five years In the pastthese parties leaders had been so intensely at loggerheads that they did not hesitate to cooperate with the army to beat their enemies Nawaz Sharifa creature of the Zia regimeentered into a civilian-military pact with the army to prevail over Benazir Bhutto in 1990 and Benazir17 years laterhad probably been convinced by the US to strike a deal with Musharraf to stage a comeback in 2007 Political leadersapparentlyhave realised that this tactic was self-defeating and they have tended to join hands against the GHQ Howeverthese achievements need to be qualified Firstthe government has not been able to regain the upper hand over the military the way ZA Bhutto hadas is evident from the fact that the Chief Of Army Staff (COAS) Ashfaq Parvez Kayani vetoed all attempts by Prime Minister Gilani and President Zardari to establish their authority over the ISI Secondthe civilians have probably lasted five years because they have quickly resigned themselves to continuing to devote a huge percentage of the nations budget to the militaryand to let them retain the upper hand on policies regarding Afghanistan and the nuclear programme The civilian government has also let them develop their own businesses Military-based enterprisesincluding those related to real estatehave become very juicy indeed Why should the army take the risk to dislodge civilians from power when it can continue to rule and loot the country in so many ways without taking the risk of accountability and therefore unpopularity Thirdcivilian governments have failed to bring the economy back on track (so much so that the country will have to turn again to the IMF very soon)to fight corruption (which is always more difficult when the most corrupt ones occupy the top posts) and to maintain law and order in the most general sense Over the last five yearsPakistan has seen the exacerbation of ethnic and religious tensions The Talibanisation of the FATA is the most well-known developmentwith the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan using the tribal belt as a base to fight against Islamabad and its American patron with the support of the Haqqani networkan old ISI partner But this is more a sequel of the armys policy than the result of the civilian governments policies On the ethnic frontthe Baloch insurgency has reached new highsthe government being unable to defuse tensions by stopping the exploitation of the province (through the colonisation of Gwadars deep sea port or the payment of gas at a fair price) And the trajectory of Karachi is not more reassuring In factthe largest city of Pakistan is on the verge of civil warwith Mohajirs resisting in the most violent way the growing influence of the Pashtuns among whom the Talibans are gaining momentum at the expense of Awami National Party nationalists The situation is still worse on the religious front Minorities are at the receiving end The persecution of the Ahmadiyyas is forcing some of them to regroup in their townRabwah a ghettoisation process that makes their stigmatisation even easier Hindus are leaving Sind for India partly because of the kidnapping of girls Christians are targeted though less than Ahmaddiyyas and Muslims by the anti-blasphemy lawwhose collateral casualties have been the minister of minority affairs (a new portfolio)Shahbaz Bhattiand the governor of PunjabSalman Taseera secularist Sectarianism poses an ever more challenging threat to Pakistan because it is dividing the whole society verticallyfrom the north (Gilgit-Baltistan) to the south (Karachi home to Shia-Sunni violence) and from the west (the Hazaras of Quetta) to Punjab (and more particularlythe district of Jhang wheretooShia-Sunni violence is rampant) There is much at stake in Punjabthe recruiting ground of the army While the fundamentalist groups have always had some base there Maududi had established the Jamaat-i-Islamis headquarters in the region even before Partition things have taken a new turn with the development of the Lashkar-e-Taibas facilities in Muridkenear Lahorethe entrenchment of Jaish-i-Mohammed in Bahawalpur andstill more importantlythe pervasive influence of Sunni militant groups such as the SSP and the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi These groups are benefiting from the protection of the PML(N) state government of Shahbaz Sharifeither because of the affinities of the Sharif brothers with this movementor because of their influenceand muscle powerover the voters of the region While the civilians have permitted the advent of a new democratisation phase in Pakistanthey are hardly endowed with the virtues of full-fledged democrats In that sensethey belong to a long tradition that Jinnah himself had initiated with his viceregal style and that ZA Bhutto an autocrat who was responsible for rigging the 1977 elections had perpetuated The Pakistani institution that has made the most substantial impact on the present democratisation phase is definitely the judiciary In factit initiated the process as early as 2007when the Chief Justice of the Supreme CourtIftikhar Chaudhryresisted Musharrafwho had tried to dismiss him after the court made an issue of the disappearance of Baloch nationalists and the selling of public companies at a throwaway price Chaudhry had then received the support of thousands of lawyers whose demonstrations in the street had prepared the ground for Musharrafs resignation in 2008 Back to businessthe chief justice has not spared anybody President Zardari was his first target And he did not hesitate to force Prime Minister Gilani to resign in 2012 when he refused to write to the Swiss authorities in order to start an investigation regarding his bosss bank accounts in Switzerland But then he turned his guns on former COAS Aslam Beg and former DG ISI Asad Durraniwho were declared guilty by the Supreme Court of financing opponents of Benazir Bhutto before the 1990 election including Nawaz Sharif But the progressiveness of Pakistans lawyers should not be taken for granted In factthe murderer of Taseer received the public support of some of them and their corruption is well-knownespecially at the local level The main challenge before the countrys politicians is to infuse more substance into the framework of a parliamentary democracy If they dontand if they remain part of a corrupt establishment cut off from the massesthey may prepare the ground for the Islamists revolutionary discourse and seal the fatenot only of the regimebut also of
