@expaki: One almost never hears about the culprits in the first assassination in our nation... that of Khan Liaqat Ali Khan. After his death democracy was forced to fail and dictators ruled the Pakistani landscape. After removing the elected prime minister from office through murder, the feudals tried to marginalize the Bengalis. As a result of the conspiracy the constitution was abrogated and the military-feudal complex took over Pakistan. The feudals and their sentries the army took over the reins of the country and never let go.

That, my friend, is when the ship started sinking.
