If you are looking to validate your pathetic bourgeoisie psychosis
and want to provide cover to criminal juntas and their Jamaat e Islami
collaborators, the Express Tribune’s blog on blaming Bhutto for
Bangladesh is perfect for you.
blog is a typical example of the excrement that is floating around in
the cranial cavity of our urban middle-upper classes. His pathetic and
one-sided “blog” is mostly bereft of nuance or complexity.
relies on the late Abbas Athar’s shortened headline to describe one
speech by Bhutto. For our chattering classes, one out of context

lie about another False quote dishonestly attributed to Bhutto.
Wheras Bhutto correctly criticised the inability of the Constituent
assembly and its inevitable failure to provide a constitution “It does
not have legs to stand on” was misquoted as “I will break your legs if
The sad part is that highly educated Pakistanis are
so blinded with their virulent hatred for the PPP that they will resort
to the outright lies and fabrications that constitute this pathetic
