ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to your report of May 10 according to which Pervez Musharraf now has over 200,000 fans on his Facebook page.
I find the possibility of his return quite funny given that this is a man who was more or less thrown out because of pressure from public. If fans on Facebook is to be the criterion for becoming a political leader then I suspect Megan Fox can justifiably expect to become president of the US in the next election. Surely there has to be a reason other than being popular on a social utility website for an individual to consider contesting an election.
