Resignation

 

In March 1969 burning of a private transport bus by the students of the Polytechnic  School, Rawalpindi,  led by the then student rebel rouser  Shaikh Rashid was a minor incident from the present day standards, but it made President Ayub Khan”  decide to resign. Khawaja Shahabuddin – his cabinet minister, advised him against it saying, “ Sir, just hold a referendum and you will see that the people are with you”.  “What referendum?”, he asked,   “Referendum is already on the roads !”  He addressed the nation the same evening – 25th March 1969 - on the TV and resigned saying that he could not preside over the destruction of the nation.  Such has been

the conduct of honourable men in history.
