Mr Ijaz-ul-Haq seems to think that the people of this country are awfully naive and cannot guess why he starts bemoaning the death of his father, General Zia-ul-Haq, so much when out of power. Over the years, he has encashed his father's death in all possible ways, the wealth amassed from the Afghan 'jihad' notwithstanding. He became a federal minister twice, for no other qualification except that he was the son of General Zia. During all the years he remained in power, he never talked of his father nor inquired very keenly about who killed him. It is only when he is out of power he raises the bogey of his father's death. During General Beg's time as COAS, at least four different inquiries were conducted, including one by the PPP. The Bandial Commission gave the verdict that the death of Zia-ul-Haq was an act of God, even though, General Beg and many others subscribed to the view that it was an act of sabotage. Tell me why General Beg would kill Zia if he was to hand over power to someone else afterwards? Mr Ijaz-ul-Haq only sheds crocodile's tears for political gains. -SYED QAISER ALI RAZA, Wah Cantt, September 15.
