This refers to Dr. Farid A. Malik's column titled "Bhuttoism" appearing in your paper. I find Dr. Malik to be somewhat over-emotional. The writer claims Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's PPP derived its strength from the Pakistani people only. But there is substantial evidence to prove that PPP, once into power, was left with the support of only the feudal elite. After all, when Bhutto's government was over-thrown by a military dictator, why was there no reaction from the masses? -MASHKOOR A. KHAN, Lahore, via e-mail, September 13.
