A correspondent in an English language daily has made an appeal to the generals, ministers, bureaucrats and businessmen that they should not harm Pakistan as their position, status and affluence is all because of this country. I denounce his 'appeal', not because it will simply fall flat on the beneficiaries of this badly exploited country but because he has neglected and overlooked the mass majority of the poor and deprived people of this country whose awakening and coming to consciousness alone could save this unfortunate nation from its currently ongoing process of hurtling-down-the-precipice. -PROF DR JUNAID IQBAL QURESHI, Sialkot, via e-mail, April 27.
