    Abbas, I really liked this blog post of yours and I agree totally with the fact that Musharraf did a lot of good for the country. Though in his eagerness to stay in power he did mess up it up in the end and as they history is nothing but the view and opinion of the winner and Musharraf will live as the dictator who wouldnt let go.

    To people who have started abusing the author of the post. Everybody is entitled to express their opinions and that is the basis of any democracy. We should be willing to hear the other side as well with objectivity and not get emotional about it.

    As for the whole idea of dictatorship, my two cents says that evey country in the world was a dictatorship in the begining and its only once the population of that country started becoming prosperous and educated did the democratic reforms took place. Why is that we, pakistani, have become so sensitive about democracy, independence of judicary and media. Cause under that dictator we had a chance to regroup, get educated and become economically stable and finally found our voice.

    Always be optimistic about the future, hopefully the newfound freedom on media, expression and judiciary will herald a new era. Inshallah

    You are right,Pakistan has suffered most at the hands of its so called educated.The author of this blog is trying to justify the unjustifiable.

    Actually, the word load shedding entered into Pakistani vocabulary in the 1980s (you know who was ruling then. Merde …). But in the 1990s we had surplus electricity and we were even thinking of exporting electricity to India (remember?). However, from the year 2000 onwards we kept beating the dead horse of Kalabagh but did not generate a single megawatt of additional electricity. The result is before us today — but it is too difficult to see because it is darkness all around.
