ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to Kamran Shafi’s article “If, only if …” (September 9). I wonder why the writer is so full of hate for the army and attributes everything wrong in the country to this institution. Doesn’t he find anything wrong with the way this country is being ruled these days? Extremism breeds in an environment of anarchy, disillusionment, poverty, illiteracy, general discontent and lack of governance, for which the political leadership is equally responsible. It is time that the political leadership starts to take ownership of whatever is happening. It must gain complete control over the ‘deep state’ but for that it has to stand tall on moral grounds, which seems to be an impossible proposition.
