Shaheryar Azhar: The Way Forward

Shaheryar Azhar has written an interesting column in today's News. His views offer a different and balanced perspective. t

The way forward —Shaheryar Azhar

There are two ways to deal with the wrongs of politicians: the court of law and the court of public opinion. Let those be the guide; coups don’t solve any problems, they perpetuate them

Pakistan’s born-again democracy will fail. Musharraf will be proven right that Pakistan does, after all, need ‘unity of command’. The worst of the sceptics will say “Pakistan is a failing state with or without military rule but more slowly with than without”.

Pakistan’s elite, which consists of the majority of the army’s brass, its bureaucracy, its multi-national technocrats and its feudals, will once again be singing paeans to a smartly-uniformed general who speaks in clipped tones. And they will be spitting venom in their living-rooms on Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari — those no-good politicians who are taking the country down the garbage chute.
