Sindh's Education Minister telling us about a lack of confidence is the height of hypocrisy. PIA has been destroyed by the civilian authorities that have run this airline since the 90's. Majority of the people given positions are not even degree holders to begin with. Arshad Malik was brought in to repair the airlines image and sort out the unions who have been black mailing PIA for decades. He has done a valiant job by turning it into a profiting entity to start with. This plane crash inquiry is also expected to bring further scrutiny on people within the organization who are thoroughly unskilled for the rules they occupy.
And secondly, Pakistan is not a military state. The past civilian governments have brought pakistan onto its haunches and now the current government of Imran Khan is helping to clean out the mess with the help of the army to get Pakistan on track.
Without going off topic, can the PM imran Khan sack the army chief ? If not then he is in power at the mercy of the army.
But this topic is on the independence of the crash enquiry. A civilian aircraft has crashed, but the constituted enquiry committee is dominated by defense guys ? This does not happen anywhere in the world.
Are the airforce guys more familiar with the Airbus than the civilians who are operating them day in day out ? Their is no logic in stacking it full of defense personnel.
And suddenly after a week , the news comes out that the CVR is not found. It's all unbelievable. Typical setup to absolve the favorites of any culpability and to probably save the acting PIA ceo(a serving airforce guy) neck.
Can Imran Khan sack the army chief? Yes he can. Conspiracy theories of the army running Imran Khan have long been running with zero credibility. The army chief is symbolic position that heads the establishment. He is not a dictator.
Was it a civilian pilot who operated the airbus day in and day out while crashing it? PIA is well known to harbor people without any degrees or qualifications. Should they be put in charge of this investigation? Airbus will be taking part in the investigation themselves, do you expect the CEO of PIA to twist airbus's hand to alter the report?
The idea of any investigation team is to have investigative experience which you will not find within PIA or any other Pakistani CAA body, proof being no accident report has ever been made public. The CEO of PIA has no reason to hide the CVR. He is the one who has been sacking PIA officials in the first place for mis-conduct. Shocking that some how the very guy who is turning PIA around is now culprit?
The downing of PIA gives more power to the CEO than ever before to bring in sweeping changes. He was recently re-instated by the supreme court after the high court removed him from the post based on false allegations by PIA unions.
