The Really Right Answer

During his powerful endorsement of Barack Obama yesterday, Colin Powell chose to make one particular point about this whole "Obama is a Muslim" drivel that has sadly gone largely unstated during this election, despite being utterly plain and obvious. I have inserted the relevant video excerpt below, which I would urge you to watch.

And whilst were on the subject of the 'Really Right Answer' (or rather really obvious pertinent rhetorical question), according to GEO Prime Minister Gilani made this statement yesterday:

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has claimed that that his ancestors had made the forefathers of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Muslims, who were originally Rajputs.

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani revealed that his ancestors made the forefathers of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Muslims.

PM said that Quaid’s predecessor Lohana Rajput was non-believer centuries ago, and he (Lohana) embraced Islam on hands of Gilani’s forefather.
Gilani made this statement in Islamabad and added that the historians marked that event a Divine decree, as we, the successors of Hazrat Ghous-ul-Azam, were to come in this part of the world and our ancestors were to make Quaid’s forefathers Muslims and Quaid-e-Azam were to lay down the foundation of this Muslim state.

Riiighht. Some have questioned whether or not the Gilanis of old really did successfully preach to the Jeenabhais of old.

However, the ReallyRightAnswer/ReallyObviousYetPertinentRehtoricalQuestion here is either

a) "Why does he think anyone cares?"
b) "What the hell is his point?"
c) "Why in Gods name is he our Prime Minister?"

I mean, not to boast or anything, but I think it is important for everyone to recognize and accept that it was actually my own illustrious blood ancestors who founded the human race and moreover spawned Gilani's ancestors. I honestly mean this. This is an actual fact.

In reality therefore, it is I who am the scion of the ultimate family, the one that created Pakistan (and populated Asia Minor, and invented all technology and founded pretty much all the countries on the planet). So balls to Gilani, foolish usurper that he is.

What the hell are you doing? I don't think blogger is equipped to handle two posts in one week from you - it's a load it's simply not used to. If Rs.5 crashes like Wall Street, we'll know who to blame.

By the way, what does it say about me that I noticed the grammatical error at the tail-end of that YouTube clip, where it says "Prejudice against Muslim's is not acceptable"? I think I need a life.

a) "Why does he think anyone cares?"
b) "What the hell is his point?"
c) "Why in Gods name is he our Prime Minister?"

Here is my humble attempt at trying to answer the questions raised by you.

A) He knows no one gives a flying fuck about any inanities uttered by him but he has gotta say something, after all he is the democratically elect PM(S).

B)As he is the democratically elected PM, he need not to make a point, at all.

C) He is our PM because the sole criteria for being a PM - as considered important by Shareek chairman sahib - was that he should not make any sense at all, period.

Maybe Gilani's Viagra stopped working and he needed an ego boost

NB said...


Id agree with you on your answer to A. I think he feels he just needs to justify his appointment, by saying increasingly silly things.


I am told that Joey Capsule (the local Pakistani knockoff of Viagra) is extremely potent, to the point where it can result in tissue damage to the subject organ. Still, its surley a better substitute than touting some tenuous pre-mughal causal link to the creation of Pakistan.

"I am told"? Riiiiight. Why don't you just be honest for a change, and tell everyone what REALLY happened that fateful prom night?

Interesting comment from our PM, as far as I know and what I read in Stanley Wolpert's biography of Jinnah. It was his Jinnah's grandfather a gujarati hindu bania that converted to Islam (the Ismaili sect) in Rajkot in Kathiawar.
