Ms. Sherry Rehman said in a recent TV appearance that the election of Prime Minister and President (both from the same party) is result of the democratic process going forward in the country. This is the new mantra of all in PPP now, particularly the PPP ladies brigade. Reminds me of a popular TV play of yesteryears called Taleem-e-Balighan in which maulvi sahib of the school tells his pupils that "If democracy establishes that (Mughal king) Akbar was father of Humayun, then it is proven that Akbar was, indeed, the father of Humayun" So much about party chiefs becoming heads of the state through a democratic process-SYED SAYEF HUSSAIN, Karachi, via e-mail, September 16.
