President – The Symbol of Unity:


Greetings to the President elect – Syed Mamnoon Hussain, and may Allah (swt) bestow upon him the necessary moral courage and wisdom to always act in the best interest of Pakistan, ameen.:


Though the process of the election was absolutely fair and transparent and the boycott of the opposition led by PPP was only an excuse for their face saving, yet. It has made it somewhat controversial.  What I feel that if the President has to be a totally neutral, impartial and a singular symbol of the unity of the federation, then why must he be a politician only belonging to some particular party?  See, how various political parties act and behave to field their own candidates and then try all sorts of maneuvering to get him elected?  A politician, howsoever he might try - resign his party membership, try to disassociate himself from the party that he once belonged to, etc. etc.  – simply cannot in the heart of his hearts have not a soft corner for the party that got him in to the high office of the president of the country.  Why can’t the political parties nominate non-political men of repute like, Judges (though unfortunate ly not many untainted are available now a days), Academicians (Ph.Ds & Professors), Eminent scientists, Capable and honest Bureaucrats, successful Business entrepreneurs and even, if it doesn’t give them cramps in their stomachs, retired Generals, Admirals and Air Marshals.  After all the Kings and the Queens of England have not been fools to appoint many a Viceroy and Governor General from the armed forces in the common wealth countries stretching from Canada to Australia.  Pray, tell me, why the President has to be a politician from a political party unless they want to use him in one way or the way for their own gain and game?  What are they afraid of from a strictly neutral, impartial, honest and capable president?
