Taking the fall

Syed Nadir El-edroos May 01, 2010

LONDON: This is with reference to your editorial of May 1 titled “Taking the fall for a general”. Is anyone really surprised at how things have transpired? It has been widely reported in the Pakistani media that prior to appearing before the inquiry committee the major-general met senior military officials.

The people of Pakistan would like to know what was said in those meetings because the impression that one gets from this is that he was being aided. These events once again prove that some of our institutions take care of their own, even at the expense of the nation. It would have been good if it was shown that no one is above the law.
