I don't think you are grasping the gist of the article. It says, it is irrelevant who the leaders were of Pakistan - Malsi has ALWAYS been the star attraction. And everything has always tried to cater to Malsi's needs. The article even gives an example of A M Hinnaj's 11th August Speech which went in the trash and is totally disregarded because that is a secular manifesto. I am also of the opinion that Pakistan's woes have very little to do with leadership - it has to do more with the people. Pakistan suffers from an identity crisis first and foremost. What identity crisis you may ask? The basic and the first one - What are you first? Muslim or Pakistani? Hinnaj said you are Pakistani first, second and last. Malsi said No. You ask some of the people who fought for Pakistan's independence and even they will tell you the Mullah's have always pushed Malsi's importance, even though they never led the nation in an official capacity. Malsi is the Star attraction of this Zoo. It has always been one. We are all required to Dance to Malsi's tunes.
