KARACHI: This is with reference to your editorial “Nobody at fault, again” published in The Express Tribune on February 23. It seems that the only people to blame for our follies are our long-dead ancestors who chose to migrate to this country, or did not leave it when they could see the writing on the wall. Has anyone ever been held accountable in Pakistan? Smugglers, land grabbers, tax evaders and other such worthy citizens are in fact regarded with great respect. Budding senators can give millions to assembly members to get elected, but no one cares. I don’t think it is possible for our people to change their mindset. We all seem resigned to the fact that nothing can be done and it is our destiny to be ruled by criminals.
