Million Dollar Donation


A news report says that a million dollar donation has been made to Ajmer Sharif (India) by the high commissioner of Pakistan in Delhi on behalf of the President Asif Ali Zardari and the People of Pakistan.  May I know how much of this million dollars  is the personal contribution of the President and how much of it is on behalf of the people?  And, if the entire amount is to be paid by the tax payer under which rule the President is authorised to make such a donation on his own behalf and that on behalf of the people of Pakistan?


Firstly, I had thought of ignoring the matter as yet another one-of-those-things  that our rulers keeps doing but then I realised that keeping quiet over such  “philanthropies’ at the cost of the exchequer may encourage them further in squandering the hard earned foreign exchange of the nation already under heavy international debt.  They must, therefore,  be discouraged and  made to realise that by doing so they not only transgress their authority but also that their such act is unbecoming the democratically elected rulers.
