Pakistani-Americans debate crackdown

North Jersey's Pakistani-Americans are torn over the chaos gripping their homeland, with some condemning the Pakistani president's suspension of the constitution and others defending it as a needed tactic against extremists.

Gen. Pervez Musharraf is finding his leadership threatened by an Islamic militant movement, the reemergence of political rival and former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, and an increasingly defiant Supreme Court.

Last week, he declared a state of emergency, cut communications and deployed paramilitary troops and police in the capitol. As Emerson resident Shah Aktar viewed it Monday, Musharraf's decision to also oust judges, curtail press freedom and authorize police to crack down on dissenters was regrettable, but necessary.

"He had to deal with corrupt politicians on one side, and extremists on the other," Aktar said of Musharraf, whose emergency rule has prompted the arrests of more than 2,000 protesters. "I don't agree with martial law -- we want democracy for Pakistan. But Musharraf was in a bind; he had to take drastic measures -- his choices were really limited."

Zain Abbass, a high school senior from Leonia who was born in New Jersey, agrees.

"The political opposition in Pakistan uses agitation," said Abbass, the founder of Urbanpk.com, a Web site focused on Pakistan. "It's dirty the way they play politics in that country."

And of the televised images of police swinging batons and firing tear gas at protesters, Abbass said: "It's absolutely right. The protesters are not peaceful. They were throwing rocks and attacking the police."

But Musharraf's crackdown is viewed differently in the Pakistani-American community, even within the same family.

Abbass' grandfather, Waheed Khalid, a past president of the Darul Islah mosque in Teaneck, vehemently opposes the suspension of rights.

He lamented the latest developments in Pakistan as more of the same deficiencies in political leadership that historically have plagued the nation. Khalid said Pakistan has had the misfortune of having "dictators or democratic leaders whose governments have been full of corruption."

Musharraf seized power in a coup eight years ago, promising to bring true democracy -- a move welcomed by many Pakistanis, who were increasingly frustrated by a corrupt civilian government. Critics say his latest move is intended to curtail elections in January that could unseat him.

His takeover had initially angered the international community. But his decision to end Pakistan's support for the hard-line Taliban regime in Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States won him new friends in the West -- and enemies at home.

Like many critics of Musharraf, Khalid sees the emergency rule as an overzealous response to the growing opposition to the Pakistani president, and a last-ditch effort to cling to power.

"He's acted like a dictator from Day One," Khalid said. "He's committed treason by throwing the constitution away. People are being beaten and arrested for expressing themselves."

Police on Monday fired tear gas and clubbed protesting lawyers. The crackdown has mainly targeted Musharraf's most potent critics -- the judiciary and lawyers, independent television stations and opposition activists.

The U.S. and other nations called for upcoming elections to be held on schedule and said they were reviewing aid to Pakistan.

Khalid said the growing opposition to Musharraf was evident even two years ago, when he visited his homeland. Much of the resentment of Musharraf was over his close ties to the United States, and his work with the U.S. in going after terrorists.

"It's the way he and the United States went about it that people did not agree with," Khalid said. "He went after tribal lords, and so many Pakistanis shed their blood.

"You don't find terrorists who are hiding in the tribal areas by executing the tribal leaders. You talk to the tribal elders and get their support and cooperation. Now what that created is even more people in Pakistan who support the Taliban and hate the United States."

In Jersey City, home to one of the nation's largest Pakistani communities, Shafqat Khan wrestled with his feelings on the crisis in Pakistan.

"Democracy is the best option for any country," said Khan, president of Pakistanis for America. "But democracy must be real, not the anarchy of people taking over the streets and creating problems. What the president did was to respond to anarchy.

"Musharraf made Pakistan the best ally to the United States in the war on terror," Khan said. "And Pakistan progressed a lot, economically and other ways, under him. But I am very against restricting the press and punishing the judiciary."

Zain Abbass on Channel 12 news:

Teen offers differing viewpoints on Pakistan

Posted ImagePosted Image

(12/28/07) LEONIA - A teenager in New Jersey has set up a Web site to combat what he believes is too much negative publicity against his homeland, Pakistan.

Zain Abbass, a Leonia High School senior, set up Urbanpk.com two years ago as a forum for views on the country. The site now attracts around a million viewers per month.

"Everyone can give viewpoint[s]," says the 18-year-old. Urbanpk.com offers a message board for public discussion as well as news, photographs and access to further resources.

Abbass hopes to expand on the site in light of recent events like the assassination of Benazir Bhutto as Pakistan garners more media attention.

For the full interview with Zain Abbass, go to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra. Related information:
