Dissertating Pervez

[ #6122 ]
Dear Log,

«When Pervez Musharraf attended the Royal College of Defence Studies in London a few years ago the thesis he submitted ended with the impassioned recommendation that India and Pakistan settle their differences, cut their military forces and devote the resources so released to poverty reduction.
In Pakistan's case the Islamism of the devout middle class and the impoverished made only a limited connection. The problem was solved by channelling the radical Islamism of the poor "toward objectives which locked them into a culture of antagonism to Shi'ites, Christians, Ahmadis and Indians."»

--"For Musharraf, being decisive is not an option: Pakistan's Islamism is a real obstacle in the general's path"
