Opinion/Editorial:

  • Shame on me, shame on you:
    ‘In a way it was fortunate that Jinnah did not live long enough to see the negation of his principles, the perversion of his vision…his disillusionment would have been too great to bear’, thus wrote Ardeshir Cowasjee in the first part of his The Sole statesman series published on 18th June, 2000. 5 years after the death of Cowasjee, I too sigh in relief. Had he survived and seen what we continue to do with what he vehemently argued was ‘Jinnah’s Pakistan’, he too would have been anguished beyond comprehension.( http://nation.com.pk/E-Paper/l)
