Pity the Pakistani voters in their next elections. They have to choose among a military dictator, a convicted felon who has been found guilty of corruption, and a family with serious criminal charges pending in the courts. Is that all the leadership material 150 million people can muster? Perhaps partition was not that great of an idea after all. There are 150 million very happy, free, and democratic Muslims living on the other side of the great divide while the supposedly safe homeland for Indian Muslims teeters on the edge of becoming a failed state.
