Letters: Asking for trouble

This refers to your editorial ‘Hope in Pakistan?’, March 18.

The piece rightly points out that Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has only himself to blame for the current situation. Not only did he dilly-dally over the implementation of his agreement with Nawaz Sharif for reinstating Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, but he even tried to end the political carriers of Nawaz Sharif and his brother.

Former President Pervez Musharraf had seized power through a military coup, overthrowing the elected government headed by Nawaz Sharif. He should have been tried for treason on restoration of civilian rule and should have been brought to justice by the elected government. But Zardari never did this.

One reason behind Zardari’s reluctance to reinstate Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry could have been the possibility that the latter would re-open the cases of corruption against him.
