Some serious lessons need to be learnt from the UN Commission’s report on the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. Surely there was a security lapse, lack of coordination and incompetence on the part of our premier intelligence agencies whose character has been dubious ever since their role was expanded in the political sphere. The UN Commission’s report might be the first formal and written proof of how certain agencies undermine democracy. It is high time all democratic forces joined hands and curtailed the covert operations of these agencies by redefining their role.

Redefining the role of intelligence agencies with minimum interference in civilian matters is the need of the hour. It will also strengthen their professional capabilities and make our countrymen more secure. The Quaid-e-Azam had rightly ordered the uniformed men not to interfere in civilian matters and never assume the role of policy-makers.

In response to Lieutenant Zaheer’s letter (February 23) on the article “D J Hartman and 2,947 Pakistanis” by Mosharraf Zaidi (February 16), one would like to urge the government to make a monument to honour the brave martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for us. Civilian casualties must not be forgotten as people like Pervez Masih of International Islamic University must also be remembered.
