Imran Khan’s Masterclass Against Nawaz Sharif That The Entire Nation Failed To Understand
Imran Khan’s Masterclass Against Nawaz Sharif That The Entire Nation Failed To Understand:
As soon as Imran Khan announced his Civil
Disobedience movement the entire opposition and twitterati erupted into a
tirade of jokes asking questions such as, how would PTI supporters not
pay GST on milk, bread and other groceries. Or that if they wont pay the
utility bills the utility services would be disconnected and so on.
However, none of these so-called
intellectuals were able to understand that what this Civil Disobedience
movement is aiming to do is declare Nawaz regime a dictatorial regime
and hence render all foreign debts that the regime would contract as
unenforceable. A debt becomes illegitimate if a) the regime that
contracts it is despotic and/or dictatorial and b) it was not spent on
the betterment of the nation.
The entire long march is based on the premise
that Nawaz Sharif and his party rigged the 2013 General elections and
hence the regime is dictatorial and illegitimate. Before announcing the
Civil Disobedience movement Imran Khan went into elaborate details of
how the Sharif has previously used foreign debt to fill his coffers.
What Imran was trying to do here was to establish a case that the
foreign debts which this regime would incur would not be spent on the
nation but would rather be laundered out of the country to power the
business of the Sharif dynasty.
In simpler words Imran has told the entire
world and specially the foreign lenders aka (IMF, World Bank and Asian
Development Bank) that any loans incurred by the Sharif regime would not
be enforceable on the future governments of Pakistan. To make it
abundantly clear to our intellectual elite, Imran is telling the foreign
lenders that if he ever came to power, he wont pay back the loans that
the Sharif regime would borrow. This means that the foreign lenders has
only one option left before them and that is to decline all future loans
to the Sharif regime. Since, the Sharif regime relies heavily on
foreign lending to finance its budget, the move would cripple the
government and will bring it down to its knees without any bloodletting
on the streets.
I once read a quotation that “Brilliance hits a target that no one can hit, Genius hits a target that no one can see,”
Imran’s masterstroke against Sharif is such
an act of genius that the entire nation is unable to see the target that
it has hit. All that PTI and its horde of social media now need to do
is explain this to the entire nation that:
Since, we consider the Sharif regime as
illegitimate, all foreign debts that it would incur would be
illegitimate odious debt and hence would not be paid by the future
Imran Khan himself needs to do a better job
and explain this to the foreign lenders that since the Sharifs always
loot and plunder these loans for their personal gains, future Pakistani
government would consider the foreign loans received by the Sharif
regime as illegitimate. Once this is made abundantly clear to both the
national and international audiences, it does not matter an iota if the
civil disobedience movement fails to reduce the amount of taxes
collected at the National level..
