Maturity, objectivity and farsightedness should be the hallmarks for any analyst to judge whether he is doing justice with the might of pen. It is not easy to present an objective analysis when unleashing cruel criticism. PPP is the target of undue criticism because of its soft image and its non-violent culture. There is a perception among PPP circles that the vocabulary of failure, often moored in moral terms, is presently being carelessly bandied about without acknowledgement of performance benchmark the PPP govt has set for itself. Not many critics can even prioritize the 100 days plan of the PPP-led coalition govt set out by Prime Minister in his maiden speech in National Assembly. As far as restoration of deposed judges is concerned, there is dim hope that the deposed judges will be able to live up to the ideals of free and independent judiciary. Senator Zardari could not get a bail in the BMW case merely because he was not heard by judiciary for two long years. If a vehicle has been imported illegally, you impound the vehicle, not its owner. Javed Hashmi languished behind bars for several years and the Supreme Court did not take any suo motto notice. What independent judiciary are these critics talking about? -KHUBAIB USMANI, Islamabad, via e-mail, July 15.
