Atal, a poet became P M in 19 March 1998. Now a poet Fahim of PPP is frontrunner for PM Post of Pakistan.

 

 

 

Atal-Poems: Who win the coming battle of ballet?

Ahuti baki hai;

Yagya adhoora hai;

Apnonke vighnon ne ghera hai;

Antim jai ka vajra banane;

Nav dadhichi haddiyaan galaayen

 

"I could have been the prime minister, which is the first and last dream of any politician in the parliamentary democracy, but loyalty is more important for me than the prime ministership," Mr. Fahim says.

But Fahim belongs to such Pakistan where loyalty doesn't matter at all. Change of party and leadership is considered a routine affair in local politics.

Musharraf was also loyal to Sharif. Sharif as a PM promoted him in the army, but just after getting promotion he executed military coup.

Like Fahim, Natwar Singh Ex External Minister of India also said publicly uncounted times that he was the blind follower of Nehru Gandhi dynasty. But now he has become the sympathizer of BJP to correct himself. Sonia alone, Natwar gone as Sarkozy’s party leader distancing from him

Makhdoom Amin Fahim, 68, belongs to a religious family. He is the Vice-Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians in the lower house of the Parliament of Pakistan, the National Assembly. He is also Parliamentary Leader of his party in National Assembly of Pakistan. He has also served as Federal Minister in Benazir Bhutto's tenure.

Though Fahim is front runner of PM Post but meanwhile, ruling party PML-Q, which backed President Pervez Musharraf said it doubted that the PPP-led new alliance will be stable calling it a 'marriage of convenience.'

As the new coalition partners PPP and PML-N joined hands with a resolve to strengthen Parliament, Musharraf said in a signed article in the Washington Post that he would work with the new Parliament.

 

Zardari is in Mush Bush pressure

Though Zardari did not talk of pressure from the US at his joint news conference with Sharif, PPP sources confirmed that the Americans had "brought tremendous pressure on the PPP co-chairperson to make a coalition government with the likes of the PML-Q and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) but not with the PML-N". Beyond Bush, Mush is also giving pressure for not going with Nawaz Sharif.

Fahim, a self admitted drinker believes in ruling people’s hearts. It is generally said that most poets marry with the wine.

Initially, Fahim was more interested in poetry than politics. However, he had no choice but to jump into the fray as the political heir of Makhdoom family.

"Poetry is my first love. I am still fond of saying verses and reading poetry of others," Fahim says.

His forte is mystic poetry. His poetry speaks about love, peace, and simplicity.

"I have always been fond of the poetry of Maulana Rumi, Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, and Sachal Sarmast. Their poetry has left a deep impact on my life. I have learnt from them (poets) to be loyal to your loved ones in good or rainy days," he says.

 

Reclamation of own and others childhood

Reconciliation of own childhood is easier than the reconciliation of others. Harivansh Rai Bachchan, father of Big B wrote poetry book on madhushala? Though, he himself was not drinker. Blind Soordas imagination of Krishna  childhood is still more wonderful than the Seven Wonders of the World. Late poetess Mahadvi Verma never saw mirror but her poems on the beauty are still extra ordinary. It means reconciliation of childhood is not impossible. It can be obtained.   Child within Man: Is father child to man?

 

Pranab Mukherjee and Fahim

Fahim was offered the post of prime minister in 2002 by General Pervez Musharraf keeping Benazir's refusal to appoint Fahim as Chief Minister of Sindh province after 1993 elections in mind.

Political analysts think that Benazir has always been scared of the popularity and influence of Fahim in Sindh province that is why she never opted for appointing him as chief minister. "Benazir never wants a powerful chief minister who has his own say. She wants a factotum that is why she never thought about Amin Fahim," Abdul Khalique Ali, a senior political analyst says.

Benazir may be scared of Fahim's popularity, but he never thinks like that.

"Benazir Bhutto is my leader and my Prime Minister. She is the daughter of my leader Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and I can't betray her", Fahim says.

Makhdoom Amin Fahim was mentioned as a possible chairman for the PPP in the wake of the the December 27 assassination of PPP leader Benazir Bhutto, but is now expected to be the PPP Prime Ministerial candidate in the upcoming election, as Bhutto's son and husband were named party co-chairs.

The PML-N has already made it clear that the prime minister will be from the PPP.

Pranab Mukherjee was also front runner for PM post after the death of Rajiv Gandhi, but he could not be made. This is the reason in 2004 Dr Singh was appointed as PM instead of Pranab because Sonia Gandhi found more puppet PM Dr Singh instead of Pranab. Situation trained him to be a loyal of the dynasty. And still he is loyal to the Nehru Gandhi dynasty as Fahim is loyal to Bhutto dynasty. Nuked Lame duck Puppet PM is nuked, not for rise in prices and suicides?

 

Fahim has been criticized in Pakistan

He has been criticized for his contradictory characteristics. He is a feudal landlord and leader of a social democratic party, as well as a Sufi divine (inherited status) and a self-admitted alcohol drinker.

His political party, the PPP, is self-avowedly liberal, but Fahim's sisters have allegedly been forced to "marry the Quran" (instead of non-related men), to prevent the family's massive land holdings from being split up (charged by Tariq Ali in his book "Clash of Fundamentalism", page 261). However, the Makhdoom family denies that charge.

Makhdoom Amin Fahim was mentioned as a possible chairman for the PPP in the wake of the the December 27 assassination of PPP leader Benazir Bhutto, but is now expected to be the PPP Prime Ministerial candidate in the upcoming election, as Bhutto's son and husband were named party co-chairs.

The PML-N has already made it clear that the prime minister will be from the PPP.

Swiss focal point for Mr Sonia Zardari
