Dual nationals in office... By Shahryar
18 February, 2014
If our leaders agree to allow dual nationals to run our nation and work at diplomatic and high posts in our government, then what is the point of having an independent nation? Why not just go for a deal with the US, where the four provinces of Pakistan can become new states of the US, thus giving everyone in Pakistan US citizenship? If Chaudry Nisar's wife and children can be US citizens, why can all our children not be US citizens too?
Unlike some leaders, a true Pakistani would not spend a second thinking about allowing dual nationals to run our country or even to allow individuals whose entire families are dual nationals to work in important roles for the government. Our nation's founder and martyrs laid down their lives to stop British dual nationals from running our country and now, after 60 years, we are considering and allowing our government to be run by dual nationals again?
