Pakistan Muslim Leagues progenitor Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah bequeathed a slogan of Unity, Faith and Discipline to the PML. The sorry state of affairs in the party he founded is reflected by the number of factions the PML has split, several dozens in the past six decades, and multifolds even at present, tearing the fabric of its founders hopes to nothing. The PPP has emerged as the largest political party in the wake of the divided vote bank of these PML factions that has kept them out of power in the centre and three provinces. Mr. Majeed Nizami has tried his level best to forge unity in the PML but to no avail. Let us all pray that PML which created Pakistan can again unite to form a majority party but this would only be possible if they eschew the old tendency of everyone having a family-based faction of his own. They would need to forge unity as a first step and forego family-based trends to make it a truly all-Pakistan party. If that were to happen, we might have two main parties, like they have in US, where the two-party system has endured with great success for centuries. Let us emulate their example. -DR. M.
