There was a news item the other day that Mr Bilour of ANP has demanded a Pukhtoon regiment. May I point out that the present ethnic names of various military regiments were given by the British just to keep ethnic feelings simmering within the locals. Now the politicos of Mr Bilours ilk that are all suffering from parochial, linguistic and racial obsessions are trying to exploit that to divide the people. I think we should abolish all ethnic names of military regiments and instead allocate them with numbers (Regiment 111 or Regiment 222 etc) to ensure politicians do not whip up ethnic hatred in the name of their respective communities. -ZAFAR ISRAR, Karachi, March 5.
