well done Dawood!

.....an army's business is NOT a businesman's business -- it's defense -- if an army makes it its own business -- it's neither a good army nor a good business......

right now in Pakistan .....it is as if the Generals want to be merchants or the merchants in them want to be the Generals.....

Pakistan will progress ONLY if the Generals stick to their OWN business -- indeed..... a very lucid smart column....!

The article is well written.

So far all types of governing systems the mankind has devised, democracy has proved to the best. Simply because, it provides greater oppurtunities to a greater number of people than any other governing system.

The modern democracy rests on three or four pillars i.e. Political System, Judiciary, executive and the Media.

Coming to Pakistan, it is simply cannot be understood that while the country can produce good engineers, doctors, writers , journalists and (let us say-good) generals , why it cannot produce good leaders, lawyers, judges and bureaucrats.

If the army says that politicians and judiciary in the country is incompetent, then it simply means that these branches have not been allowed to grow normally. The cause is very well known.

Good article. Sound arguments. But that is not what generals understand. Am I wrong?

Dawood,

A very good analysis of the facts especially coming from you.

I hope you really mean your statement: "In reality, Pakistan is a country hijacked by fanatics and ruled by a dictator. The only hope out of the shackles of tyrants and fanatics is democracy."

Where do you think the fanatics are coming from? They are born from hatred and bigotry. The reason I question your sincerity is that, in the past, right here on the SAT forums, you have made very bigoted statements that you would teach your children to hate Hindus. If you have changed your mind in this regard, that would be a very welcome development.
