Will 2016 be dif­fer­ent?

Enterprise - - Letters - Malik Tariq Ali, La­hore.

Would it be too much to wish for our coun­try to have a self­less leader like Quaid-e-Azam or Al­lama Iqbal? Th­ese were men of hon­our and dig­nity. They re­spected the peo­ple and tried to aid them in any way they could. Can the peo­ple of this coun­try ex­pect a proper sys­tem of law and or­der, and not just mere rhetoric? Is it not a mock­ery of our con­sti­tu­tion and le­gal sys­tem that not even a sin­gle high-pro­file crim­i­nal in­volved in rob­bing the state of bil­lions through cor­rup­tion and land grab­bing has ever been pun­ished?

Why should any govern­ment be al­lowed to ap­point in­di­vid­u­als who have been ac­cused of fi­nan­cial and ad­min­is­tra­tive in­dis­ci­pline? Why should this coun­try spend so much on pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity to such rulers when the govern­ment can­not even pro­vide ba­sic ne­ces­si­ties to its cit­i­zens?
