If the facts that have come to light through the information brought to the fore by Wikileaks (not that we did not know about almost all of that) do not prove how bereft Pakistan is of quality leadership then nothing else will ever open the eyes of the Pakistani nation. I am borrowing a quote from an email from someone I know and it goes like this. Lord Dalhousie had once summed up the Nizam of Deccan as – Quote ” The Nizam of Deccan can stand any amount of kicking” Unquote. How do the factual disclosures of Wikileaks sum up the leaders of the muslim world of today is for each of us to assess. Does Lord Dalhousie’s observation still stand good if you substitute the then Nizam of Deccan with the words “muslim leaders of today, in general, and of Pakistan, in particular” . Iran and Turkey look like they are the only respectable exceptions . So are the muslim countries to the east of India including even Bangla Desh, an erstwhile part of Pakistan, but then these countries lie somewhat outside the sphere of the present day world’s theatre of war.
