PDM leaders meet today to discuss mass resignations, upcoming elections
Durrani calls on Fazlur Rehman prior to PDM huddle

On 1 January (today), heads of the PDM will “go into a huddle” to discuss the mass resignations and participation in the upcoming elections in the national and provincial assemblies and the Senate. JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman indicated that a future course of action would be decided  in the meeting and viewpoints of all leaders, especially Bilawal Bhutto, will be considered. 

On 29 December, Bilawal had said that the PPP’s Central Executive Committee believed that if the Opposition jointly takes up the challenge of Senate elections, they could collectively “make a better impact and achieve larger success.” Therefore, on 31 December, Fazlur Rehman and PML-N’s Maryam Nawaz said they would like to hear from Bilawal about the same and then arrive at a consensus. (Amir Wasim, “PDM huddle today after PPP ‘somersault’” Dawn, 1 December 2020)

Find another way instead of pursuing a collision course, Durrani tells Fazl

On 31 December, PML-Function Secretary General Mohammad Ali Durrani called on the JUI-F chief and requested him to adopt an alternative way. Referring to the decision to hand in mass resignations, Durrani said such a collision “may lead to the wrapping up of the ‘democratic system’.” However, Fazl reiterated that there was no space for dialogue. He said “There can be dialogue (with the powers that be) only if Prime Minister Imran Khan resigns and fresh elections are called.”

The meeting between Durrani and Fazl comes after the former met Shehbaz Sharif in jail and requested him to facilitate a grand dialogue and also convince the Opposition to not quit. 

Maryam expresses disapproval of Durrani’s meetings 

Reiterating the Maulana’s stance, Maryam said the “time for any dialogue was over.” Further, Maryam expressed her annoyance over Durrani’s meeting with Shehbaz and accused the and the establishment of “arranging this meeting without the consent of Mr Shehbaz or the party.” (Zulqernain Tahir, “Durrani meets Fazl to coax him into avoiding confrontation,” Dawn, 1 January 2021)

On 31 December, in a telephonic conversation, Foreign Minister Qureshi and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, agreed to strengthen bilateral cooperation and reaffirm the All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership. The Foreign Office said the two Ministers had “agreed to maintain strategic communication and consultation.” On the regional front, the two sides agreed to “promote mutual goals of peace and stability.” According to the FO, Qureshi accused India of bellicosity and said that New Delhi’s “irresponsible policies were imperiling regional peace and stability.” 

China to provide over one million doses of vaccines to Pakistan

Qureshi appreciated the role that bilateral ties were playing in addressing the pandemic. He conveyed that Phase-III trials of the Chinese firm CanSino’s Covid-19 vaccine were under progres in Pakistan. Further, he said that the Pakistan government had approved Sinopharm vaccines, again produced by China for emergency use in Pakistan; Wang said China would provide over one million doses of the vaccine for the same.

China to grant USD 100 million and revive N5 Highway

On the same day, the Chinese Ambassador and Pakistan’s Minister for Economic Affairs signed an agreement for grant assistance. Under the agreement, China will “provide USD 100 million as grant assistance for rehabilitation of four sections of N5 National Highway between Hala and Moro in Sindh.” The project is aimed at facilitating north-south connectivity as the N5 highway, which was damaged during the 2010 floods, previously connected the southern part of Pakistan to the north-western border.

CJP takes suo motu cognisance of Hindu shrine vandalism
What support can the govt offer the beleaguered Hindu community, asks editorial

Image Source: Dawn

On 31 December, the Chief Justice of Pakistan took suo motu cognisance of the vandalism and burning of the Hindu shrine in Karak District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on 30 December. The CJP asked the KP Chief Secretary, Inspector General and Head of a commission on minorities’ rights for a report on the same by 4 January. On the same day, the police arrested 31 people including a local leader of the JUI-F in connection with the vandalism. According to The News International, several leaders involved in the crime had gone underground to evade the arrests and raids by the police. 

On 30 December, over 1,000 people led by a “religious party held a protest and demanded removal of the Hindu temple.” The temple in question had been built in 1920 for a Hindu saint, Param Hans, but was destroyed by a mob in 1997. Later, his followers tried to rebuild a temple and in 2014, the temple was back in controversy during a Supreme Court hearing of a “case relating to a bomb attack on a church in Peshawar.”  In 2015, the SC ordered the KP government to restore the shrine. ((Nasir Iqbal, “CJP asks for report on Hindu shrine incident by 4th,” Dawn, 1 January 2021 and “Vandalising Hindu temple in Karak: JUI-F district leader among 350 booked,” The News International, 1 January 2021)

An editorial in Dawn, critical of the vandalism, says that the government’s efforts to project religious harmony seem futile as large sections of the population “are steeped in bigotry and some have not even spared Muslim shrines.” Further, it refers to previous attacks on Hindu temples and asks what support the government can offer an already marginalised Hindu community amid these extremists incidents. It recalls that 2020 had been marked with attacks on minorities and hopes that 2021 will bring peace to all, especially the minorities in the country. (“Rule of the mob,” Dawn, 1 January 2021)

Journalists’ federation to launch movement for media freedom and job security
On 31 December, the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) announced that it will launch a movement aimed at freedom of expression and job security of media persons.

Crackdown on smuggling of Iranian fuel puts thousands at jobs: BNP-M leader
On 31 December, MNA and BNP-M leader Mir Mohammad Notezai condemned the provincial government’s crackdown on smuggling of Iranian petrol and diesel.

ON DANIEL PEARL
Sindh HC issues notice to jail authorities for not releasing four accused
On 31 December, the Sindh HC issued notices to the provincial and jail authorities after they failed to release four men accused of involvement in the Daniel Pearl murder case. The four petitioners claimed that since the SHC had set aside their conviction by a trial court and had also declared the preventive detention orders illegal, they should have been released. According to the counsel, the senior jail officials claimed that the Sindh chief secretary and additional chief secretary home asked to not release the petitioners. Meanwhile, the SHC bench has directed the respondents to file comments by 7 January. (Ishaq Tanoli, “Contempt plea filed against govt in Pearl case,” Dawn, 1 January 2021)

PAKISTAN’S WORLD VIEW
Assess 'socio-economic and security perspectives in South Asia,' opinion urges Biden
An opinion in The News International outlines challenges that lay ahead for Biden. The author says, on the domestic front, Biden will have to manage the pandemic and the increased “polarisation that has plagued the overall system of governance.” He highlights two developments, Quad and the BECA. He says Biden must not look at South Asia from the prism of the US rivalry with China. Instead, he urges Biden to tap into the potential of the region which remains one of the least integrated regions. Therefore, he says to contain China, the Biden administration  must also “take into account the socio-economic and security perspectives of other countries in South Asia.” (Murad Ali, “Biden and South Asia - Part I,” The News International, 1 January 2021)

 

 

"It seems like the government’s attempts to show religious tolerance are futile when large sections of society are steeped in bigotry and some have not even spared Muslim shrines; our leaders rarely demonstrate the kind of resolve that is needed to eliminate intolerance”
