‘Shock to the people’

July 02, 2013

THIS is with reference to Muhammad Ali Siddiqi’s article, ‘A shock to the people’ (June 16). I hang my head in shame over the destruction of the Quaid’s Residency in Ziarat. It appears to me that my beloved leader had nothing to do with Pakistan.

He did not deserve us and we did not deserve him. This is how Noreen Khalid, Professor of economics at University of Karachi, described it, “The trees which had lent beauty to the building had been felled on the provincial government orders. The crockery inside the building had gathered dust and some furniture was in a shambles. Yet it was a national heritage, had a place in the people’s heart.”
