Further to my recent forwarded mail on the subject, I want to say that, until 1970s when wine was in easy reach, gambling was allowed, and hotels used to have dance parties, Pakistan was a good and SAFE country to live. I am not approving these evils, but want to say that in those days Mullas were not in command. Industry was developing fast, new jobs were being created and people were happy to live in Pakistan. Foreign tourists used to visit Pakistan and shop freely in the Bazars without any fear. US Presidents used to travel in open cars with crowed on both sides of the road. A US President could freely meet Bashir, camel driver on the road. A Hollywood film, Bhawani Junction, was filmed in Pakistan. PIA was one of the best airlines in the world. Since the Mullas became dominant during the tenures of ZA Bhutto and Gen Zia ul Haq, deterioration started and now Pakistan has become one of the worst countries in the world to live.
