Like a puppet on a string

This refers to your editorial ‘In the wilderness’ (September 16). I think you’re being rather harsh on Imran Khan. Please wait for him to grow up. After all, he is only 61 or 62; he needs many more years before he learns to think before speaking. 

Let him go on hurling false allegations against practically everyone in the country. It will take a very long time, but I’m sure one day he will realise that people have grown sick of him and want him to behave like a mature adult. Until then, let him do what his advisers tell him to do. He is like a puppet on a string, saying and doing what he’s ordered to say and do.
