As soon as our President took oath of office and shifted to the Presidency, the portraits of Father of the Nation started disappearing. Instead of the Quaid, we have had a flood of portraits of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal Bhutto and the President himself. Quaid-e-Azam's portraits went into obscurity. It left a very bad taste in the mouth of the people of Pakistan, irrespective of their political affiliations. Now as the boat of his Presidency is sinking in the tempest that has hit the coast of public opinion recently, there appears to be a change of heart--not out of any love or respect for the Quaid but out of sheer necessity. Suddenly now, photographs of Father of the Nation are strewn everywhere behind the President, Prime Minister and everybody else that might be something in government. This reminds me of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's last days in power. He actually appeared in a crowd and broke a bottle of liquor saying he would never touch it in future. Declaring his staunch belief in Islam, he also declared Friday a weekly holiday. This last minute baptism was not quite enough to save him, though. I wonder whether portraits of the Quaid would save Mr. Zardari? -SYED TURAB ALI BUKHARI, Karachi, December 2.
