    Wall Street Journal ran a front page story today on Asma Jahangir and Hina Jilani. As many know, to have a front page slot on that paper is something. Musharraf certainly seems to be in heavy weather now. I just hope people can do better than Benezir and Nawaz Sharif and the country changes for the better.

    A must read article for all patriotic Pakistanis:

    Constitutional Amendments Required to Ensure Pakistan’s Progress as A Democratic State
    ================================================== ====

    Nations gain strength by holding steadfast to their founding principles. Pakistan was formed through a democratic process, by the power of the vote. It was the civil society that built this nation under the leadership of Quaid-i Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

    In betrayal of the vision of our founding fathers and the generation that built Pakistan, 32 out 60 years since independence have been atrophied under military dictatorships. Today Pakistan is at the crossroads. The nation needs a fresh start to embark on the path laid forth by the Quaid. In this article, the root cause for the destruction of democracy in Pakistan is investigated and then constitutional amendments are proposed to stem and eliminate army’s interference in affairs of state. The proposed amendments, coupled with an independent judiciary and a public cognizant of it’s rights, can provide the bedrock for a strong, stable and a democratic welfare state.
