From plunderer to president

I am in mourning over the travesty that is Asif Ali Zardari’s appointment as President of Pakistan. Tariq Ali expresses my feelings – as well as of most Pakistanis – over this tragic event.

  1. This feels like a new low. You are right that the article represents the feelings of many, if not most Pakistanis. I am worried about where all this will lead us. It seems to be one of those moments when you stop a bit in life, look around you in confusion and despair and ask what will become of us. Apologies about the negativity. I know that tomorrow I will start hoping again and return to trying to do what I can with my life. But just for today, I am letting the negative feelings be.

  2. Assalam-alaikam,
    thank you for the link to the excellent article. Every time people would call Pakistan a “failed state” I would bristle, but after this, I can’t really find the words to defend Pakistan anymore.

  3. After reading Asif Ali Zardari: the godfather as president by tariq ali i don’t blame asif ali zardari on it because we voted and it was our mistake as pakistani citizen that we elected PPP although PPP didnt had any leader PPP leader was dead we all know that what will happen if i zardari comes now face it
