Fathers and sons

This is with reference to your editorial ‘Fathers and sons’ (June 12). I wonder how Prime Minister Gilani would have reacted had he been the chief justice instead of Iftikhar Chaudhry. Would he have taken suo motu action on the baisis of rumours about involvement of his sons in financial improprieties? Or would he have moved heaven and earth to have the case hushed up?
I’m sure that an opinion poll would most certainly reveal that in such circumstances, PM Gilani would have used all his influence to get all the honest persons investigating the case transferred to remote locations.
