Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain- چودھری شجاعت حسین -

Chaudry Shujat Hussain
Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain

Chaudhry Shujat was born in the village of Nath, near the Chenab River in Gujrat in 1946. (It is said that in the days of antiquity, some Chinese Buddhist pilgrims came upon the river and were so impressed that they called it ‘Chen’meaning beautiful in Chinese. Later, the Persian word for water, ’ab’ was added to it and its name became ‘CHENAB).

Shujat‘s family settled in Lahore and after completing his Matriculation from Central Model School , he graduated with a BA from Forman Christian Collage in Lahore .He also went to Watford Collage where he received a diploma in Industrial Management. After completion his education, Chaudhry shujat got involved in his family’s highly successful textiles business.

However, after the assassination of his father Chaudhry Zahoor Elahi. in 1981, Chaudhry shujat was compelled to join Politics. Chaudhry Zahoor Elahi was a leading politician who had played a central role in the restoration of democracy, he was honoured with the prisoner of Conscience award by amnesty International and his untimely death made him the first political victim of terrorism in Pakistan.

Chaudhry shujat has played a pivotal role in enhancing relation between Pakistan and India and promoting inter-faith harmony through the restoration of the ancient Hindu temple at Katas. He invited L.K Advani to the inauguration of the magnificent temple. The gesture carried immense symbolic significant as L.K Advani had led a mob of Hindu religious extremists in 1992 to demolish the Babri Mosque which caused much distress and outrage among Muslims. Chaudhry shujat had also arranged for Advani and his family to perform puja at a shrine of shiva. Advani was over- whelmed.” I felt that I owed a debt of gratitude to shujat hussain, a debt I don’t think I’ll ever be able to repay “said Advani.

His business interest has been criticized by his detractors.However, Chaudhry shujat won a land- mark case against the iconic British newspaper ‘The guardian’ in 1991, which falsely stated that he and his family members had accounts at the ill-fated Bank of Credit & Commerce International(BCCI).HIS lawyer at the time was the late Ijaz hussain Batalvi, one of Pakistan’s leading intellectual figures. Chaudhry shujat won the case and the Guardian published an unequivocal apology on its front page for any distress and embarrassment caused by the baseless allegations

Chaudhry shujat has been president of the Pakistan Muslim league since2003.He served as prime minister from June 2004 to August 2004. In addition, he has held an array of portfolios: he was Minister for interior and narcotics control from 1990 to 1993 and 1997 to1999. He has also served as Minister for industries &production from 1987 to1986 he was Minister for Information &Broadcasting. In the wake of the 2005 earthquake which devastated Pakistan’s northern areas, Chaudhry shujat received the county’s highest honour, the sitar-e-Isaar, in recognition of his efforts for earthquake relief.

He also received Korea’s highest diplomatic award, the heung-In Medal and is honorary Consul General of the Republic of Korea. He is also chairman of the Sufi Council of Pakistan.

With a wealth of political experience both in government and the opposition, Chaudhry shujat has witnessed Pakistan’s tumultuous political and economic journey. He shares his fascinating insights with BLUE CHIP. As interior Minister for five years, what were the highlights of your tenure? Chaudhry shujat:”There are many highlights but I will just relate the interesting once .The establishment of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).Saif ur Rehman was the chairman but then he started victimising people through unfair means; I opposed him.In one particular incident when NAB applied for the extradition of Asif Zardari for financial embezzlement, the UK courts said this was not their jurisdiction, they could only consider extradition if It related in a Lahore court and then applied for extradition but the UK courts still would not entertain it because they wanted it to be done through the Anti Narcotics Force which was under the purview of the Interior Ministry. When I came to know of the case, I called in the DG and ordered him to dismiss the charges as false. Since I declared the case false, the appeal made by government of Pakistan for Zardari’s extradition was dismissed .for this, both Benazir Bhutto and Asif Zardari thanked me. I also spearheaded the establishment of the National Database known as NADRA. On the basis of this, Pakistan received a Narcotics free country certificate from the US which it was failing to receive for the last four years. What about the criticism against your family over your rapid financial growth and business interests? Cs: “My uncle started the business with four small hand looms. After this, we acquired power looms and then set up a textile mill. We expanded our textile business. In 1950, my uncle was the first person to import machinery from Japan for textiles.

During Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto's tenure, our land was nationalized and converted into a housing scheme. We fought court cases for two or three years. Our appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court. We could not claim any compensation for the development we had undertaken on this land as it was declared dispute property by the Supreme Court. That land which was previously worth Rs500 per marla was now sold at Rs 50,000 per marla. Similarly, our land was seized in Faisalabad .Land worth Rs 500 per marla was sold for Rs 100, 00 per marla. We had invested in sugar and textile mills but by the Grace of God, we never got a single paisa written off by the bank. It is all propaganda .The current position is that none of our business concerns are leveraged. We have divested our sugar and textile mills and are now involved in dairy and pharmaceuticals and we have not taken any loans for these.”

You were prime minister at a critical, transitional phase in Pakistan’s history .can you elaborate on some of the memorable events of your tenure as prime Minister? Chaudhry shujat: “When I was Prime Minister, I received a summary from the US requesting the deployment of Pakistani troops to Iraq. The Pakistan government refused. However, the Arab states thought that the US request was for the purpose of establishing a peacekeeping crop. A proposal came from the Arab states to send a peace corps to Iraq from Pakistan. The interesting thing is that no one had carefully read the summary. The request did not mention the word ‘peace’ at all but was to protect the US presence in Iraq. The word ‘peace’ wasn’t even used in the letter. I refused to send troops from Pakistan.

I then went to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and spoke to the then Crown prince Abdullah and explained that the request for troop’s deployment was not for peace. He called a cabinet meeting and on this basis, Saudi Arabia also refused to send troops to Iraq.”

What are your views on foreign intervention in local politics? Cs:”Senator Biden stated on CNN: ’if PMLQ beats all odds and ends up being the winner here, I think it will be viewed a totally discredited undertaking.’ Biden was accompanied by Democratic Senator John Kerry and Republican Senator Chuck Hagel in observing the polls.” What is your vision for the future for Pakistan and are you optimistic? Cs:”Absolutely. We should not be pessimistic, we should not despair; we have the potential to succeed; we are a resilient nation.

However, when policies are motivated by personal interests, when policies are formulated for personal gain, this is most damaging to the country. For example, when import and export policies or defense policies are framed to suit personal interests; this is deeply harmful for the country.
We are agricultural nation. The government should invest in agriculture and should give it greater focus. If the UAE, which is a desert, can transform into a fertile region and grow all kind of crops, why can’t we? In tabuk, Saudi Arabia, tulips are exported everyday to Holland. Pakistan ‘s agriculture sector has untapped potential which must be developed for the economic prosperity for the people and the country.”Chaudhry Shujaat became a member of the federal parliament (Majlis-e-Shoora) in 1981 and until 1985 when he contested in the general election from Gujrat on both the National and Punjab Assemblies seats. After the elections he had to vacate his Punjab Assembly seat in favour of the National Assembly seat he had one and he became a member of the then Prime Minister Muhammad Khan Junejo’s cabinet as the Industries Minister. He served a further 4 terms as a member of the national assembly after being elected (1988, 1990, 1997, 2002). He also acted as the parliamentary party leader of the PML-N in the National Assembly. Over the years he held several portfolios as a Federal Minister including Information and Broadcasting (1986), Industries and Production (1987–1988), Interior (1990–1993), and Interior & Narcotics Control (1997–1999). Chaudhry Shujaat was an active political leader as well, heading the Parliamentary Party of Joint Opposition in the National Assembly from 1988 to 1990. He was President of the Pakistan Muslim League (N) in Punjab from 1997 to 1999, led the Parliamentary Party then called PML-Q beginning in December 2002, was President of the Pakistan Muslim League in January 2003 and was elected President of Pakistan Muslim League on May 12, 2004.

On the international scene, he has been named an Honorary Consul General in the Republic of South Korea (1982) and was awarded Korea's highest diplomatic award Order of the Diplomatic Service Merit "Ueung-in-Metal" for distinguished services in promoting mutual relations between Pakistan and Republic of Korea.

.In the general election of October 2002 Chaudhry Shujaat was elected to the National Assembly. He has also been elected unopposed for three years in a row as president of the PML (Q), Pakistan's ruling party since 2006.

On July 9, 2007, he led a delegation that attempted to negotiate with militants besieged in the Red Mosque in Islamabad shortly before the military stormed the mosque compound early the next day.

Shujaat was a candidate in the February 2008 parliamentary election for a seat from Gujrat (NA-105), where he faced Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and a seat from Sialkot (NA-112). In what was considered an upset, he was defeated by Mukhtar in Gujrat. He was also defeated in Sialkot. Shujaat subsequently accepted the PML-Q's defeat in the election and believes that the elections have been free and fair.
