As history records it, the Protestant King of France, Henry IV (1589-1610), once famously said "Paris vaut bien une messe." (Paris is well worth a Catholic mass). We, the nation of Pakistan in 2016, take the liberty of suggesting to our COAS General Raheel Sharif that Pakistan is well worth an extension. If the conflict is between a man's integrity and his innate patriotism, surely the latter should win out.

This time, Pakistan has really reached a turning point in its history. We could just as well transform the whole country as lose it completely. Surely the General Raheel who turned down the offer to join the war in Yeme, who led Operation Zarb-e-Azb to the highest levels of achievement would not baulk at giving us a little more of his time and energy, thereby saving Pakistan from a fate worse than death, namely utter slavery to India and its poweful allies. Perhaps we are indeed asking too much from him. But we know as well that General Raheel has never stepped back from doing his duty as a soldier. Challenges do not daunt you. Rumours have it that you've been offered a one-year extension by our so-called Prime Minister, but actually a two-year period would be more to you liking in view of who might be your successor. Apparently, Navaz Sharif is all in favour of naming General Navid Mukhtar your successor owing to family ties and business interests, whereas you yourself would prefer to see either DG ISI Rizwan Akhtar or General Asim Bajwa come in your stead. And, truth to tell, the whole of Pakistan would breathe a sigh of relief if either man took over. So General Sahib. no further heart-searching, please. Just do the necessary and see Pakistan revive and survive.

While General Raheel mulls over his options, another extremely powerful man has suddenly entered the arena as well, namely the Chief Justice of Pakistan who in the Orange Train case presently being heard in the Supreme Court came out and said what all of us have been thinking for quite some time now, namely that there is no democracy worth the name in Pakistan. What we do have is an ill-disguised, budding monarchy. Of good governance not a trace in this country so it is upto the masses now to come out onto the streets and put an end to the farce that passes for democratic under the PMLN government.

This wholly unexpected attack on the part of CJ Jamali is timed in exquisite fashion to coincide with the Islamabad lockdown Imran Khan is planning to carry out starting October 30 (or, if circumstances demand it, on November 3). The moral support of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, also backed up by the Punjab Supreme Court, is a sure guarantee that this time PTI can go ahead with its protest action with a peaceful heart. The time has come at long last. We the people of Pakistan will finally emerge from the darkness of slavery into the radiance of democratic freedom, honesty and rule of law.
