Asif Zardari has stated the other day that since the deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry has been involved in politics in the last few months, he could not be reinstated. If this is not just a (usual) lame excuse on the part of Zardari and he really considers that the reason for not restoring CJ, (with out going into merit of the argument) one may ask why did Mr Zardari then promise reinstatement of CJ through a written accord with Nawaz Sharif only a few weeks back? -ANWAR JALAL, Peshawar, via e-mail, August 25.
