One was delighted to know that our political leaders (Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mr Asif Ali Zardari) have mustered much courage to unseat President Pervez Musharraf through a lengthy process of impeachment and then restore the deposed judges, without whom (as per pretension of politicians) the judiciary cannot be independent. As is apparent from the reply given by Mian Nawaz and Mr Zardari to a question by some journalists in their joint press conference that President Pervaiz Musharraf may resort to the use of 58(2)(b), the former said that it was not 1980s or 1990s, the latter claimed that they have votes, courage and political will. It would be commendable if this courage and political will is used to liberate the poor masses from the clutches of price hike, inflation, lawlessness and extremism.-RAJA SHAFAATULLAH, Islamabad, via e-mail, August 11.
