I am amazed and bewildered at the fact that the Secretary of State of a superpower moves at will through out Pakistan whereas no one, with just one exception, from our ruling elite picks up the courage to interact with the public or buck up the army personnel sacrificing their lives to perpetuate their rule. That one exception from Pakistan is our COAS who regularly visits the operational areas fearlessly. -TALAAT KHURSHID, Rawalpindi, November 1.
