Liaqat Bagh is to be renamed BB Bagh, Murree Road to be renamed BB Road, 27 December to be declared an official holiday on BB's death anniversary, Lahore to be turned into Larkana, Presidency to be taken over by a PPP worker, Prime Minister commuting death sentences to life imprisonment as BB's birthday gift to the nation (read murderers). The co-chairperson - not even an MNA - being given full protocol and allowed use of bulletproof SUV with coloured glasses (who says it violates the law?). What is all this? Is it democracy? Where is the Parliament, which unlike the previous ones is claimed not to be a rubberstamp? Are these acts democratic in nature and spirit? Or is this democracy yet another facet of the maadar pidar azaad Jiala jamhuriat? Jo jee mein aye karo, yahaan kaun poochhaney wala hai?-COL. (Retd) RIAZ JAFRI, Rawalpindi, via e-mail, June 24.
