Rural Pakistan is control by the feudal, even in urban areas one can see the people who work hard and other exploit the situation and make money in the name of religion or family lands. Our ruling class of so called politicians is from feudal and then industrialist follow them for power in authoritarian society. Law making body-the Majlish Shora, parliament -the senate , national assembly, provincial assembly and district council , every where the members are feudal, indusrialists, drug barons and /or Rtd. corrupt police officers with few Rtd, army officers as well. The writer of the this article and a leading scholar Dr. Aisha Siddiqa is also from feudal class with extra ordinary intelligence. I agree with some people that one should do some thing instead of suggestions. I have done some thing by leaving my home land as it’s hopeless there; unless there is rule of law not the law of ruler and we should follow the rule accordingly. Very simple law of inheritance can change our country’s future. What ever law we follow, Islamic or British- Muslim personal law, the property should be divided accordingly after the death of a person in a reasonable time but what happen in our country- this is the basic problem. If division of property is done by the law, there will be no feudal and if there is no feudal: the country will flourish. See rest of the world specially the developed world where majority people from under developed countries want to come. All the best for the rest of the people all over the world.

The people will follow for the simple reason that the other choice will be the Taliban or fundamentalist type Goverment. A coup-d-tat, with suspensions of civil liberties will rid this nation of many fanatics. No questions, no were are they now type of goverment.

Sounds like US policy of old. Any aid to a corrupt govt and military without strings attached will result in minimal progress.

demonstrating a show of strength and conviction, by forging a national united front, is the only way to convince the american administration to write fat checks. Once the milking of the cow is resumed it will be business as usual. with the ongoing mayhem engulfing the country, the end result will be same. No frontal attack on extremists is going to take place.Us and other donors will not realise this until after a few months later.Sad to be pessimistic.
