Musharaff gives an interview using unkind words for Zardari and Ch. Nisar defends Zardari.
Ch. Nisar has two passions (if you read what he has been saying after he became the opposition leader): attacking every Zardari and attacking everything America. Therefore, it was very strange to read that Ch. Nisar huffed and puffed about Musharaff’s trash talk vis-à-vis Zardari. But why would Ch. Nisar defend Zardari? The answer is simple – Ch. Nisar has run out of anti American rants.
Given Pakistan’s troubles, it doesn’t really matter who said what. What matters is if anything is being done to save the country. Ironically, it is the army, yes; the same army that has overthrown democratic governments in Pakistan, the same army is being hailed as the institution engaged in fight to protect Pakistan. Less than two years ago, army officers in Pakistan were scared to wear uniform in public, but today, they have become heroes. Good, at least someone is liked in the country.
Because everyday people are dying in bombings across Pakistan, it is important that we don’t get distracted by what one aspiring politician is saying about other politicians in Pakistan.
Musharaff, as we know, has good things to his credit and there are some terrible mistakes associated with his tenure. But, he served his country to the best of his knowledge and abilities and Pakistan has to learn to move forward, even if is not acceptable for the Ch. Nisar and his party, PML (N).
