20 March 2011 : I am glad that Pakistan's press, especially the Urdu press, is echoing similar views to those I have expressed in relation to the role played by Pakistan's elite in the Raymond Davis drama. Those who feel at home with Urdu will particularly like reading the following articles:
غیرت کی ڈولی "Ghairat ki doli" by Ali Mas'ood Sayed:
آج دل بہت اداس ہے "Aaj dil bohat udaas hai" by Hina Khwaja Bayat:
الله اس ملک کی حفاظت کرے "Allah Ta'aala is mulk ki hifaazat karay" by Javed Chaudhry: http://express.com.pk/epaper/PoPupwindow.aspx?newsID=1101196304&Issue=NP_LHE&Date=20110320
Some sections of the English press, on the other hand, are making fun of such deeply held convictions by the Pakistani nation. The small minority of Brown Sahibs and Memsahibs laughingly refer to the rest of the nation as "ghairat brigade"! Are these dishonourable people totally bereft of any notions of honour as Pakistanis?
