I am deeply hurt by TNSM leader, Sufi Muhammad who openly threatened our national, provincial assemblies and Senate and even declared the entire democratic system, including Supreme Court & High Courts as ghair sharai and Kufr. I ask all those political and religious parties, civil society and the lawyers community, who until the other day were ready to sacrifice their lives for the supremacy of judiciary as to how come all of them are now maintaining a silence on these profane remarks? The world media is predicting destability and disintegration of Pakistan saying the country is on the brink of fracturing into a number of fiefdoms. In such a situation, the army, police and other law-enforcing agencies cannot save the country unless the people themselves get involved in the process of salvaging it. -AMIN SHEERAZI, Abbotabbad, via e-mail, April 21.
