A ten-rupee coin has been minted with the image of Benazir Bhutto. Pity the father of the nation does not have that honour. This is the first step towards democracy being replaced by a monarchy. What is next? Idolatry? This is just the beginning. "Zinda hai BB zinda hai" will now keep haunting this unfortunate nation until the next change in government. -KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, via e-mail, December 29.
