Almeida column

EDITORIALS are galore in condemning firebrand politicians. However, it was extremely disturbing to see the same phenomenon in a prestigious daily like Dawn.

The Almeida column was a correct and balanced analysis of Imran's equivocal stance on extremism. More of such columns are needed.
