Pakistan in trouble)
Mukhtar Ahmad | 16 Mar 2009

Democracy in Pakistan is indoldrums due to inept handling of Its president asif Al;i Zardari.

It seems the democracy in Pakistan this time will have the shortest span . The inept handling of coutry by Asif Ali Zardari and his confrontation with Nawaz sharif may end the democratic rule sooner than expected.The proposed march by the opponents of Zardari on March 17 which includes the lawyers and opposition leaders may result in large scale violence  and ultimate collapse of the government.

In response, officials have launched a nationwide crackdown aimed at preventing marchers from reaching the capital. Television footage Wednesday showed activists being dragged into police vans, and dozens of senior figures in the Muslim League and legal community were placed under house arrest. Others fled their homes and hid from the authorities

asif Ali Zardari is out of country in Iran and speculations are rife that he may not return .  Ther is a chance that the prime minister Gilani and army chief Kayani may share the power with nawaz's support from outside.
