Bold, truthful analytic. Truth is bitter. How can we improve ourselves if we close our eyes to reality

If money and power was the over-riding motive of Pervez Hoodbhoy then him, his brother and his sister would have stayed in the US. They love their country too much and for that reason alone they all went back to Pakistan. That cannot be said about most Pakistanis, including myself who remained in the US for monetary reasons.

Seeing all the nasty comments here about the only well educated and insightful person in this program really makes me feel embarrassed to be a Pakistani. To all those non-Pakistanis who read the nasty comments in broken English, please know not all Pakistanis disagree with Dr. Hoodbhouy, but may not be as courageous as him to express their views on TV as you know people of primitive mindsets dont tolerate view points that they cannot process and can kill people or get violent, as you saw what they did to protest cartoons.
