    Musharaff delivers a tear-jerker

    From the podium of the General Assembly, Pakistan's coup-leader and now its ruler Gen. Musharraf ,who was dressed in a black sherwani, delivered a well-rehearsed tear-jerker ...

    Excerpts :

    "While the international community and this world body (the UN) are seriously engaged in finding a solution to the Palestine issue, Kashmir cries for justice even after 52 years,"



    "Ten million people cannot be denied their right to self-determination"

    "Over the past 10 years, over 70,000 Kashmiris have been killed by 700,000 troops and which had only hardened the resolve of the Kashmiris to see that the pledges made by the UN are honoured"

    (He should have made it 70341 to make it sound authentic... !!)

    "If the people of East Timor could be given their freedom, why not the people of Kashmir?"

    (Yes quite right Mr. CE, but freedom from pak-sponsored terrorism, first !!)

    His gifted speech-writer made sure he blended the CE's speech with a few JOKES, to keep the audience from crying :

    Excerpts :

    "Pakistan stood for peace and is prepared to take bold initiatives to change the status quo through a dialogue with India at any level, at any time and anywhere.

    "Islamabad desired a no-war pact, and is ready for a mutual reduction of forces. We seek a South Asia free from all nuclear weapons."

    "We stand sincerely committed to rebuilding and strengthening the institution of state to give the country genuine and durable democracy"

      The CE wants the no-war pact - but will India the aggressor in all three wars between the two nations agree????

        Regardless of what Musharraf said in his speech, there will be 112 speeches made in 4 days of Millinium summit. Rest assured, no one is even reporting these speeches in the corridors of 'real' power. In the few glimpses of the 'great occassion' which PTV made sure it telecasts in prime time the next day, the most notable feature were the largely empty seats (approx 80% of the hall was empty), and even the ladies who were sitting in the back drop of Musharraf were talking on telephone and conversing/joking/laughing continuously through out the greatest oratory effort of our beloved General. No one except Pakistani delegation were even wearing the mandatory headphones.

        Re: Musharraf's speach...well, it was an expected mix of rheotric. Kashmir, featuring pre-dominanatly, yet again.

        Waste of breath, if you were to ask me.

          Yes ofcourse you are going to say that Pristine. Now the reality of the matter is that Kashmir is a flashpoint for an all out nuclear war. It is not a joking matter. The speaech was not intended for the other 112 members. It was intended for US and India and I am sure it was noticed. To substantiate my claim you seem to have taken time out and listened to it. Also the speech will be used by Pakistan for future references.

            "About 60 to 63 nations have, so far addressed the UN Millennium Summit. Of these, only two including Pakistan have mentioned Kashmir. This reaction, or lack of interest, from the international body, more than indicative of the fact that Kashmir is not an international issue. It is a bilateral one." Jaswant Singh in UN


            Which was the other country that spoke of Kashmir? Any Guesses ?

              One of my relatives had two wives. He once contested in city election and got two vote. One vote was obviously himself. While kids honestly admitted that they did not vote for him, both the wives claimed that they voted for him. It still remains a puzzle who gave the second vote.

                This was Indian Prime Minister's reply to Anti-India speech by Pakistani Chief executive Parvez Musharraf

                Atal Bihari Vajpayee chose not to mention Pakistan by name, even as he sent General Musharraf a clear and unambiguous message, "Many statesman-like words have been delivered from this high tribune. Unfortunately, some of them are a mockery of the truth. The world must see the reality as it is. The acid test of sincerity of purpose is not words, but deeds. Terrorism and dialogue do not go together."

                In the longer version of his speech, which will remain on record in the UN, the prime minister went on to add, "Those who have stifled democracy at home speak of freedom from this forum. Those who have engaged in the clandestine acquisition of nuclear weapons and delivery systems talk of ridding South Asia of these. Those who have repudiated solemn covenants talk of new agreements to prevent war. The authors of a vicious terrorist campaign that has claimed more than 30,000 innocent lives in India, who actively sabotaged a historic peace initiative, are now offering new initiatives for dialogue."
