Au Revoir Musharaff

Why do I write Au revoir, well b/c I don’t believe ( or at least want to believe) its good bye Its more of a ’till we meet again’.

A number of people that I have spoken too, agree that his resignation was needed, not because of what he had done, but because of what our politicians were not doing. Since the time they have come into power, the new government has used the issue of the judges and the president as an excuse to not get any work done.  I hope this allows them to concentrate on what they were elected to do in the first place.

Secondly, Musharaff deserves a decent farewell. Mr Sharif may say what he may, but he seems to have a really short memory. The only reason why he is alive, is b/c Musharaff did not want to follow Zia’s footsteps. Every good turn needs to be remembered.  Furthermore, the Sharif’s may not have a soft spot for him, but many of the country’s citizens still do, especially now since he is no longer president, and their number one conflict with him was his unwillingness to let go of power.

So what happens next? The country is now in the hands of Zardari and the Sharifs. Lets see what they pull this time. We’ve survived them before and we can do it again. As I said in one of my previous blogs we’ve been through many difficult times and have pulled through. We will do the same again..

God bless the country and take care of it.



  1. Of course we’ll get through it one way or another but the magnitude of problems facing the country is huge, and I’m not sure how these incompetent goons are going to handle them. We can only hope and pray that they do, for once, think for the betterment of the country rather than themselves when they sit down and try to resolve these issues

  2. […] egotism did kick in, but we have much worse problems than egotism in our leaders. (For more, see Sana’s blog post ). Democracy is a great thing to have, yes, but it needs to start at the right time — when […]
