I greatly admire the personality of Mr. Mushahid Hussain Syed as a politician, as a sobre personality, as a soft spoken man, as an honest person, as a patriotic Pakistani, as a good muslim as an educated politician, as a balanced personality. It is pity that he was made to lose the election for President of Pakistan and thus we lost the chance of stationing a lovely , good looking and sobre person in the Presidency. The price that we have paid and still paying is evident.

I feel, all PML parties should unite and become ONE party(PML), if not possible, then Mr Mushahid should be head of PML Q.

As his name is Mushahid(Obeservation) he will all the time do the wrong one. When he was Minister with Musharaf why not he Advise Musharaf for that?

I don't understand why some people start reacting on Musharraf, These so called intellectuals don't even know / acknowledge the root causes, Nations can never progress if they don't learn from history and don't make the responsibles accountable. I feel sorry & disappointed on your views sir..............
