Why is Nawaz Sharif so afraid of accepting the agreement document produced in the Supreme Court regarding his official request for pardon to General Musharraf, especially as it is signed in his hand? Why doesn't Nawaz Sharif graciously admit that he had signed the document out of his own free will to stay out of the country for ten years? People of Pakistan already know that their politicians are generally economical with the truth to get political gains. Nawaz Sharif is regarded no differently. A formal acceptance of the truth generally puts the charge to rest, or will it not in this case? -IJAZ TABASSUM, Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia, via e-mail, June 19.
