No body is above the law or is it?


You cannot be a little bit pregnant...
This wheeling dealing in politics is very disturbing. If people are corrupt they are corrupt or they are not. You are either pregnant or not pregnant. You cannot be a little bit pregnant. So is the case with Benazir and Nawaz Sharif. They are either clean or unclean.

If they want to serve the country and the people of Pakistan then they should come to the country from where they have fled, appear before the courts and acquit themselves of all the accusations. If they are guilty then they should be punished and after serving their terms they can always serve Pakistan. You can serve in many ways. Is it written in any holy book that they should only be Prime Minister? No. They also serve who stand and wait.

Since no one is above the law they like all other Pakistanis should follow the due process and why not? Pervez Musharraf has no business to pardon those who have plundered the country or those who took foolish actions against the military. The courts should decide that. He should also not withdraw any cases lest he sully his own image further. It is already in jeopardy as it is with his uniform despite the good work he seems to have done so far except in the case of Kashmir.
