As a PPP supporter it pains me to witness the erosion of the party leadership's credibility due to its wavering stance on judiciary. The people of Pakistan expect Mr Zardari to either walk the talk or stop the talk. He, unfortunately, has either not evaluated the damage this unprincipled stand has done to his party or is no more interested in keeping the party in politics. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto gained prominence, when he stood up to defy Field Martial Ayub Khan in the wake of the Tashkant Declaration. He became a symbol of defiance and won the hearts and minds of a populace sick and tired of a dictator. Thereafter Bhutto Sahib, even after his judicial murder, has played a pivotal role in Pakistani politics and continues to do so. His political heiress the dynamic Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto quickly learned the skills of politics. While she maneuvered her return to Pakistan through negotiations, she always had her finger on the pulse of the people. On return she immediately responded to the people's wishes and demanded restoration of the Chief Justice Iftikhar, free and fair elections by an independent Election Commission and economic well being of the masses. -SHAHZAD KHALIL, Sialkot, via e-mail, June 23.
