Whose Army ?
PM Gilani’s boastful claim of the army being his own reminds me of my batman of the 50s (late) Sepoy Ahmed Hussain, a soldier who took real pride in his profession. The batmen then were there to only look after the uniform of the officer and not do the household chores like the later years. While dealing with the tailors and dhobis he often used to remind them haughtily that he was not a sepoy of some Raju Risalawala but a soldier of the Pakistan Army.
I wonder if he is not turning in his grave at the official pronouncement of the Head of the Executive on the floor of the assembly ?
Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)
