Though unfortunate, the disqualification of the Sharif brothers has been turned into a political rather than legal issue, which is even more unfortunate. Sane minds should focus on whether the verdict is in line with the law of the land and the constitution, and not on whether those handing out the judgement were PCO judges or saints. If this verdict is against the laws of Pakistan, it should be challenged in court instead of temperature being raised and chaos being caused in the streets. Anarchy and disturbance will not help the country, the economy or even the Sharif brothers themselves. Regrettably, everyone claims to hold the national interest above the personal but the actions speak otherwise. Pakistan can hardly afford another political storm. -SYEDA MAHWISH FATIMA NAQVI, Karachi, via e-mail, February 27.
