COMMENT: Grand reconciliation?—Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur\04\17\story_17-4-2011_pg3_2
The ineptness of politicians, the unchecked power of the military, the rapaciousness of the haves, the rise of fundamentalism, the apathy of the public in general and the abuse and misuse of the media have damaged the social, economic and political fabric here to the extent where no amount of darning can repair it. The acute and profound contradictions here have become irresolvable and cannot be resolved via diyat (blood money) the way the Raymond Davis affair was; the prevailing contradictions and antagonisms can be solved only on the basis of equality, respect for rights and relinquishing of the coercive power now wielded by the state and its institutions.
