Mr. Mubashir Mahmood, in a letter in Daily The Nation of 2nd January 2012, has appreciated at least one piece of news as a “Good News”. This is that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has recommended Abdul Sattar Edhi for the award of Nobel Peace. No doubt Sattar Edhi deserves distinction in service of humanity for a very long period; he is a shining star belonging to our beloved country – Pakistan. The rulers can draw a lot of consolation on this score but still the Award will go to an “individual” and not tend to boost the mark-sheet of governance, under the present state of conditions.
