Pakistanis are categorized among nations those hardly study the historical facts and its consequences on its last generation and keep on moving on short term plans and maneuvers without considering whom they are following in state or personal matters.In our last few decades of history, Jihad and religious sacrifices like scenes have been created mandatory for us to justify division of giant India on the basis of religion.With in passage of time this concept was reshaped, or re fabricated toward more violent trends through different means of propaganda to keep people ignited in same pace as it was seen in the time of creation of Pakistan.Although we can say that we change the themes of this jihad terms as per demand of west and ruling elites but end results is that we always remained charred and hostile toward our neighbors and weak communities .
Since many centuries brain washing or controlling thinking of mediocre groups through wrong propaganda are fairly successful techniques for driving the power of masses toward the decisions of individuals.On this basis many wars and human destruction plans were executed that ultimately seized the human development in any specified area of the world.This game of Bluff is still going on with modern versions showing that human intellectualism actually revolves around a circle and one can’t say that we are more wiser species than our last generations.In this business of propagandist approach everything depends on whether the “agenda” is clean, that is to say, supported willingly by agents and representatives of the people whose lives and security are all time at risk during creation of violent atmosphere through political webs.The propagandists get high and constant communication with the masses; they hear an echo, and sense the inner vibration of public and drive them accordingly. It is not a machine to make conflicts or war, but creation of an atmosphere to set the direction of conflict zones.Rest is left on mood of public and need of their local leadership that how they attain or maintain this hate culture among them.
This is also very interesting that one should clear in his/her in mind that “propaganda” is not inherently a dirty word — it just usually is. Any time you are trying to convince anyone of something, you are using some kind of persuasion, debating, or repetitive technique.e.g Just telling the whole truth about something is one simple propaganda technique, and a highly effective one for driving masses toward developing positive atmosphere. But under false leadership lying often works better, at least with some audiences having low approach of judging the long-term consequences of their followings.For understanding the hidden philosophy of propaganda let’s try to understand the saying of few popular icons of history.
Acknowledged by Aristotle .He said that it would be better if we could make our case without either browbeating or flattering the audience; nothing should matter except “the bare facts., the other things affect the result considerably, owing to the defects of our hearers.”
Adolf Hitler once declared “Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”
Joseph Goebbels quoted that ” If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
J.W.Bush told the troops “It is wonderful to bravely, patriotically, serve your country and fight terrorism. I am committed to fighting terrorism. Some of you may die in this war, but that is a sacrifice that I am willing to make. Bring’em on!”
Now just consider the shooting of Malala or video of whipping girl in swat in same context as mentioned lats three war spreading characters of world.Basically both incidents were scenes of law lawlessness in the area strictly under control of Pakistan army but such incidents were finely propagandizing best to convert into full-scale military operation by mis-using the power of social media.
So we see how leaders are mastered of making propaganda to proselytize public toward their words and promote radical and religion politics just like old-time battles.
In response to this cleverly maneuvered techniques one can see the receptivity of the large masses are very limited and people who follow such emotional propaganda hardly reach to some intellect clues that what kind of web is being crafted around them just to benefit few individuals.These followers have another specialties like having enormous power of forgetting and poor assessment skills .In consequences of these all, effective propaganda become limited to a very few points and repetitive style is followed until the last member of public can pick what is real purpose of typical issues for which slogans are raised or created.
.It is the art of the great propagandist to detect the murmur and translate it into intelligible utterance and convincing action. If he/she can do this, his utterances and actions may be full of contradictions — because the contradictions lie in the content themselves; these may be deceptive and misleading or highly volatile . The lies of the propagandists reveal the deeper truth of the whole world’s cynicism and dishonesty.
Time has clearly discovered the truths behind political agendas of military propaganda as we saw in case of Malala shooting that with many mistakes, deceptions and false statements,these are planned to actually enhance war culture that we have seen in past.Through such wars one can see death traps were set and ethnic cleansing were planned on the name of spreading peace.Finally the result of such military agendas directly affect the people or average person who suffers through all means on the cost of providing power and money to few individuals.
