Sound opin­ion

Southasia - - EDITOR'S MAIL - Shahid Karim

It is heart­en­ing to note that Pervez Mushar­raf is mak­ing his pres­ence felt, al­beit slowly, in the po­lit­i­cal arena. That he is grad­u­ally prov­ing his rel­e­vance in the fast chang­ing geopo­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion of the coun­try as well as the re­gion is clearly no­tice­able. Some of his state­ments in the last few weeks were im­por­tant be­cause of their con­tent as well as tim­ings.

Right when he was warn­ing the na­tion about the pos­si­bil­ity of an In­dian proxy war against Pak­istan on Afghanistan soil, our army chief was brief­ing the U.S. of­fi­cials about In­dia’s vi­o­la­tion of the work­ing bound­ary. It showed that the gen­eral still has a good grip on the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and knows what’s go­ing around him. His foray into pol­i­tics couldn’t be termed a suc­cess how­ever; he is def­i­nitely prov­ing his worth as a states­man.
