The PPP stalwarts say that since President Asif Ali Zardari is a symbol of federation of Pakistan, a letter against him to Swiss Court should not be written. That is a strange claim because how can the President keep chairing a political party but remain a symbol of federation? If he is indeed a symbol of federation, this symbol is a sham. A President has to be a non political officeholder that truly is a symbol of federation because of his perceived neutrality. This is just another hoax meant to hoodwink the people of Pakistan into accepting an untenable position shorn of logic, law and common sense. -DR M. YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, May 19.
