Okay, Hira and I are still not over the shock of someone, who has been charged with a plethora of corruption cases, being nominated for the next Presidential candidate. But maybe that's just us, you know, the parhe likhe jaahil who don't know how politics work.
So we try to absorb this piece of news and we keep trying to understand how this works.
BB comes and becomes popular immediately because she's the daughter of an immensely popular leader. She commits follies that are to be expected from any ol' political heir and then decides to marry a guy who looks like this:
Really. Even if character or wealth is something to go by, she could've done better. Why didn't she meet someone at those yuppie colleges she went to? And marry a prince of some unknown island? It's pleasant enough food for thought what that could've saved the country from in the oncoming years.
She had to marry a guy who looks like this:
So okay. Love is blind or whatever. Or the political imperatives to marry him were especially crucial to the prices of gas and electricity and flour in Pakistan in the year 2008.
But how is it that this fellow is claiming that people have never believed that he was corrupt? Not for one second? Does the word corruption mean anything to him at all or does it fail to lose all sensibility ... the impact of it in the global politics fail to have any semblance of logic?
Currently, it is estimated, that Mr. Asif Ali Zardari has more than 900 million pounds or 1.8 billion US dollars or even more. His estates range from Phase VIII DHA to Virgin Islands and that's just scratching the surface.
What this country refuses to understand and accept is that we are consistently letting idiots, corrupt politicians, militant crusaders and fundamentalist agendas ruin any chance of peace and quiet that may come our way.
PLEASE make me believe I have something to hope for in this nation.
Hira and I are terribly desperate here. Please.
