    saved for future reference !

    Second one was agitation by ZA Bhutto against Ayyub Khan. It was wrongly portrayed by ZAB that Pakistan had won the 1965 war and Ayyub had thrown way the advantage by signing Russian brokered Tashkent Agreement.

    Realistically speaking; Pakistan started the war but failed to attain her objective of liberating Indian occupied Kashmir. However, we managed to fight vastly superior Indian force to a ‘Stalemate’. Hence portraying 1965 war as ‘Victory’ is gross exaggeration.

    A realist view of country's situation throughout it's history. I completely agree with Mr. Niaz's view on CPEC and his views on Ayub's era too are accurate. All in all, a refreshing change from the now increasingly saturating articles flying about everywhere.

    This was an exceptional read for me and conforms to my understanding of the subcontinent and enriching it.
    I really liked your analysis that modern education and skill oriented learning will solve many problems faced by today's Pakistan.:tup:

    i have a question if you dont mind me asking.

    you said Musharraf and ayyub were one of Pakistanis greatest leaders. the latter i agree with but don't you think the former (Musharraf) is a bit controversial? i would love to hear on why you think Musharraf was a good leader.
    ansl also would it be a good idea for him to be pakistan next pm? (hypothetically)

    thanks in advance

    Even if I give unlimited thanks for such a gem of interview, it will be like drop of water in vast ocean. Since I started reading it, I knew I never wanted it to end. I don't have words to explain the deep respect for such a experienced person amongst us. Dear @niaz sir thanking you very-2 much for giving us the glimpse of shared past. Ye Dil mange more!!!

    I will most definitely share it on my social pages.

    Hon Sir,

    Please I am being misunderstood. Here is what I said.

    Quote

    Question: After Jinnah who would say was the best leader Pakistan had?


    Niaz: In my opinion, Ayyub Khan & Musharraf were the best and the worst was Gen Zia ul Haq.

    UnQuote

    I am not saying that these two were one of the 'Greatest'. I have said best after Jinnah. IMHO Pakistan never had a ‘Great’ leader. If the Quaid had lived long enough may be? But his tenure was too short for him to be classified as Great by the historians.

    The best and the worst is always a very subjective term because each person applies different criteria. My ex- Chartered Accountant, originally a Lahori; considers Zia ul Haq as the best leader ever because in his opinion Zia defeated might of the USSR. (He is my ex Tax accountant because he retired and sold his practice. He was a good accountant and I miss him).

    Musharraf must have been doing something right because during 8 years from 1997 to 2007, Pakistan’s economy grew at more than 6% per year. I remember going to Islamabad and Lahore in 2005 and I had difficulty finding vacancy in the Islamabad Marriott and Pearl Continental Lahore.

    Besides, these were my opinions and any one is welcome to disagree.

    best, great. near enough the same thing, it was unfortunate jinnah died so soon after pakistan's creation
    i under stand the economy grew at 6% but what i think that made him lose his credibility is during his tenure when the ttp was born and caused hell in pakistan.

    Nicely said. Few of us have this kind of moral courage.

    Only on this single issue, I hasten to reassure you!

    I promise you that I will remain as obnoxious to you as ever. Be of good cheer.

    @WebMaster ,@Horus ,@Side-Winder , can we please have this shared on our social media pages? thank you.

    I would request all to go further in detail and ask more questions from Niaz bhai if possible.
    Thank you for perfectly summarizing my thoughts. It is the very reason i never bothered editing the initial draft, it would be a crime to cancel out content. Kudos to everyone for their efforts and Niaz bhai for finding the time.
    @Kambojaric ,@save_ghenda ,@member.exe ,@krash ,@unleashed , in case you miss it.
