The lesson of the history is that we never learn from history. Otherwise, it is disturbing to see rising political temperatures in this chilling winter season. All around our country, a huge fire is lit for all to see that is threatening to burn it down. Last time we went through such a phase was in another chilly December when the political temperature had risen so high in Pakistan that the country disintegrated. After the debacle, Indra Gandhi had proudly announced to the world that the 'Two-Nations theory had been buried in the seabed of the Indian Ocean. The lesson of history is that those who never learn from history get perished. -DR ABID RAUF ORAKZAI, Islamabad, December 26
