Everyone has been crying for democracy for over a decade now. They say restoration of democracy is the route to success. Our prayers have been answered now and we have a democratic system. Or at least that is what our nave nation believes it to be. We need to understand real democracy with the current examples. Is this the real democracy? Un-elected men head not just the parties they are also the in-charge of making all key decisions in the country. In what capacity did Asif Zardari accompany the Prime Minister on his latest visit to Saudi Arabia? Moreover, if this is democracy then we all need to learn about democracy from other countries of the world and follow in their footsteps. -HYDER BILGRAMI, Islamabad, via e-mail, June 17.
