DALLAS, TX, US: Both Ejaz Haider and Air Vice-Marshal (retd) Shahzad Chaudhry, who have written several articles on these pages in recent weeks, seem to be reciting from the army playbook. The military wants to retreat from the corner it has pushed itself in and — one could say — is using these gentlemen to make its case.
This case is the right case and in Pakistan’s national interest. But its implementation is going to be difficult because the army itself deliberately inflamed people’s passions and is now unable to push the genie of inflamed passions back into the bottle.
