Islamabad Diary

Hafiz Saeed? I find myself caught between my party and the press. Stuck between a rock and a hard place!

Busting Through the Sandbag

The young man from the Jinnah Institute seeing me off can hardly contain himself. “Sir, you have told Hafiz Saeed on Pakistani soil what so many Pakistanis would like to say, but do not dare to.” I smile at him and answer, “But I am told my party spokesman has condemned me for doing so.” “Oh no, sir, it took courage to do what you did,” he replies. I demur. “I will be home in a few days and all I have to fear is the wrath of my party. But you will be here. That is the difference.”
