There was a time when President Lyndon B Johnson visited Pakistan
in the late sixties. He was Vice President at that time. There were literally
hundreds and thousands of Pakistanis who greeted him on the streets of Karachi.
He walked in the midst of people. No one bussed those Pakistanis, they all came
by themselves. LBJ walked without much security, shaking hands and talking to
people. Memories of his trip and his friendship with Basheer Sarban remained in
the Pakistani media for a while.
Can any American president afford to
walk with that confidence on any street in the world today? Can he walk on the
streets of London?
Why has the world stopped being friends with America?
What went wrong?
The world has become a much more violent place for all
its citizens. But it is a more risky place for us Americans. What are the
strategies one can adopt at a personal level to fight against violence? One
starting point is Michael Moore's film, Bowling for Columbine, an award- winning
documentary. But on a collective level, America and Pakistan both need an open
debate on how our societies and the world can be a safer place for all human
We pray for peace and feel a level of relief that Pakistan is not
a part of the current war.
It was LBJ's boss, President Dwight D.
Eisenhower, a commander in World War II who said "After all my experience, I
have come to hate war. War settles nothing."

understood that feudalism as a mode of production does not exist. However,
feudal ways and norms remain the bane of underdeveloped societies. Consequently,
the term "feudalism" is used to describe pejoratively "anything reactionary,
old-fashioned, or resonant of aristocratic values" (Oxford
