I still maintain that he did more damage to the country than anyone else, damage from which we have still not fully recovered.

Among other things he was the first to try to appease the religious right. He banned liquor and gambling and declared Friday a holiday instead of Sunday.

This was hypocrisy at its peak, because everyone knew that he did not believe in any one of these actions. Later about Zia: President Zia, in the s, completed what Bhutto had started in the dying phase of his regime- the total appeasement of the religious lobby.

Mum is the word on how Pakistan's Intelligence Agency, the notorious Inter Services Intelligence,or ISI,that cut its teeth on training terrorists from the Soviet-US days in Afghanistan, became a mischief-monger aiding and abetting terror outfits from Kashmir to Chenchnya.

No, Pervez Musharraf keeps the bad news under wraps.It was well planned, with wide roads and boulevards. I decided to write my autobiography after Pakistan took center stage in the world's conflicts, including the war on terror.

In this context, it is important to understand the dynamics of the anti-secular rhetoric in Pakistan because extremist elements continue to attack individuals and organisations advocating secular values in the country. My father reported back to the foreign office, still located in Mohatta Palace.

In May , a violent mob destroyed Hindu temples in Larkana, Sindh. The English version of the book has left out the number of Pakistani casualties, while the Hindi version lists Pakistani casualties numbering We were on the rims now, but such cars are designed to go on their rims for thirty-five miles or so fifty or sixty kilometers.
