Dr Shahid Masood is a frustrated individual who can do anything beside spreading despondency amongst the Pakistani youth and inject his morbid thoughts. (Socrates)
In the words of Mir Jamilur Rahman (The News, 10 Nov 2009), “President Zardari has startled the nation by revealing that since he became president 14 months ago, he has foiled three attempts to unseat him. He did not name anybody, but we can try to find out the culprits. The mind instantly goes to the army for it has been in the past sending civilian governments home. But it would be worth remembering that none of the military dictators removed the president along with the prime minister. They did not remove the president until the things were settled.”
“The simple truth is that there is no way to remove the president except by a resolution of impeachment passed by parliament by a two-thirds majority. If any other method was employed to remove the president, then the existence of federation would be endangered. The anti-democratic forces might try to win the required number of votes – minimum 295 — by political manipulation. This would destroy the party system leading to the end of democracy. Such undemocratic manoeuvring would split and weaken the biggest party that has representation in all the provinces. The earlier PPP split orchestrated by Gen Musharraf had weakened it to the extent that it failed to win enough seats to form government single-handedly. The coalitions are good to overcome political difficulties but they tend to nurture and spread corruption.” (Source)
It is however a fact that with their specific anti-Zardari and pro-Taliban agenda, Dr Shahid Masood and his cronies such as Ansar Abbasi and Shaheen Sehbai are getting more and more frustrated day in and day out because against their wishes, the democratic system in Pakistan is still intact.
