PORTSMOUTH, UK: This is with reference to Fasi Zaka’s article “Democracy and dual nationality” (May 29). It is a very good and informative article. I would like to add some points to the ones that the writer has mentioned.
First, research suggests that diversity in any place brings fruitful change, so dual nationals can play a role in bringing positive change in the culture and legislation of the country of their residence. Secondly, our single nationality holding politicians have proved to be good only at deception and corruption and have very limited knowledge about international politics. Dual nationals can help in educating them by getting involved in mainstream politics. In this regard, I feel that the Supreme Court’s decision in the Farahnaz Ispahani case will not bring any positive change in the country.
