DYNASTY and CULT POLITICS in S. Asia
- It is pretty obvious that cult-politics is the root-cause of S.Asian
Implying that military was at fault for the failure of civilian
govt, in Pak and BD, and not the CULT following, fails to adress the
crisis that in fact there is no democratic foundation in the cult-
By saying "democracy was not allowed to hold (by the military")
turns a blind eye to the issue that these cult-leaders prefer to
sustain their cult dynasty rather than let go of their cult-
following to the freedom of the people, for them to decide and
choose more COMPETENT leaders.
In both Pak and BD, "democracy" (or civilian govt) WAS allowed to
take hold, at least for 3 terms each. But in both countries those 3
terms ended in a total declining and descalating national stability.
There was absolute dogfighting between rival cults -Bhuttos vs
Sharifs, Sheikhs vs Zias - to the point when both places ended in
failed stated crisis, only to be recovered by the military, not
aborted from "democracy", but from the declining stability in govt,
due to dogfighting between cults.
It is pretty obvious that cult-following politics is a primitive,
destructive, undemocratic and proven failure in Pak and BD.
The fact is, the current system is not even democracy. In order
to "allow democracy to take hold" at least 3 things need to be done:
1) The people must REJECT the cult of family succession in
democracy. In the case of Bilawil Bhutto, people should protest, by
rejecting PPP if he becomes automatic leader!
2). The constitution and Law must prevent "lifelong leadership" of
political parties by cult leaders. The ELECTORAL LAW needs to be
REFORMED in both Pak and BD, so that these laws are implemented
against cult politics, BEFORE the next new term begins.
3). Successors in parties must be ELECTED by party members, and not
willed by the family.
If these issues are explained to the people, then people will have a
better understanding of what is `democracy' and what is `cult
dynasty'. This is the MOST essential requirement for democracy to be
allowed to hold.
