At least I am not for it. Sorry for the heart burning, but I would prefer Shaukat Aziz on Maulana Fazl ur Rehman. He seriously thinks that he could be the next top minister in the country. In Sahiwal, he even voiced his desire to be the next prime minister, if only “people” could give him the mandate. God Forbid.
It would be quite a scene having him in the Islamabad. Yaar, at least PM should be presentable. He doesn’t enjoy the kind of goodwill his late father had, but he always remains present in the news. He really wants always be around. He is made one of the strange amalgamation of political style in recent years. He, on one hand, supports president on 17th amendment, then lashed out at government on Ladies Bill. On one side he is an ally of ruling party in the Balochistan government, and then on the other side, runs a stubborn opposition in the center. Quite a nerve he has.
Once he was a member or perhaps the chairman of Kashmir Committee in the era of Banazir Bhutto. He also got fame for a very funny diesel scandal. Its really hard to decide that is he a religious leader or a political leader, or a strange blend of both. Its an open question for the reader.
In the recent All Parties Conference in London, he also showed his colours. He not only defended his government in Balochistan but also made clear that he isn’t going to accept Bibi or Babu as a default next prime minister. He also didnt look towards Qazi Sahib for support.
So what you like Maulana Fazl ur Rehman, as your next prime minister? Come on say it.
