Despite sheer insults hurled on Pakistan and its premier spy agency by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron, our President is all set for his official visit to UK from 3rd to 9th of August. I wonder how Zardari would face Cameron especially after knowing that British Prime minister has now urged not to back away from his remarks about Pakistan promoting “the export of terror”. With this stubborn stance what on earth makes Zardari talk with Cameron is still confusing for majority of Pakistanis including nation’s armed forces as earlier in the wake of Cameron’s remarks ISI chief had already abandoned his due visit to UK.
At this point of time when country’s facing worst floods of the history President’s priorities speak volume, he would go to UK, France or prefer to stay in lavish President House but avoid paying visit to plane crash site which is few kilometers away from President House. Nation is experiencing despondency but unable to protest because they have democratically elected the Pakistan People’s party and now can’t do anything to get rid of this non- progressive government, the man whose popularity has dropped all time low over the past year and he is now viewed unfavorably by a large majority of Pakistanis has simply hijacked the nation in the name of democracy.
In my opinion if our president had little honor left he would have paused War on Terror in Pakistan for sometime and engaged our military troops in flood relief operations as a protest against the insult hurled by UK premier until he apologizes, Zardari’s subtle shut up call to Cameron would not have only pressurized international community to acknowledge Pakistan’s role in war on terror but acquired the popularity among thousands of victims being starved and died in floods due to absence of required relief operation however keeping history of our leader’s spinelessness in mind we are left with no such options but yet to be abused again. Our president’s actions will however damage Pakistan’s credibility internationally but increase level of trust and faithfulness he’s trying to exhibit to his lords.
On the other hand all political parties of Pakistan including those who are allied with People’s party have voiced their opinion against Zardari’s visit to UK but it seems this man has decided to pave his way for self destruction.
