Musharraf's New Uniform?
Last June the man took it upon himself to ban a woman from leaving Pakistan and this month he personally banned the future entry of an inebriated actor into Pakistan.
Okay as we say in Urdu there is ‘zameen aur asaman ka faraq’ between Mukhtaran Mai and a drunk-has-been movie actor from India, but the question remains: what does this have to do with our rigged-referendum-imposed General in command?
On the face of it absolutely nothing; unless of course, general Musharraf has opted to don the uniform of an immigration official as well.
Does that mean that the next time we venture overseas we might spot him at the airport checking and stamping people’s passports as well.
