‘Sham democracy’

September 13, 2017


THIS refers to the letter ‘Sham democracy’ (Aug 28) by Brig (r) Usman Shah. The writer has rightly pointed out that family rule is a curse. I would only add that he missed listing feudalism as one of the causes which hamper the development of genuine democracy in the country.
