WASHINGTON: President General Pervez Musharraf’s memoirs "In the line of fire" after making record sales after the second day of its release has jumped to second place from the previous sixth in the best sellers list.

As per sources American bookseller network Online Stores maintains that the book after its record making sales has reached second place from sixth on the second day of its release.

Noam Chomsky’s book is the only book ahead of the Musharraf’s "In the line of fire" on the best sellers list.

An Indian book distributor Mr Rahul told that we purchased 8000 copies and only 50 are left the rest are all sold. We have placed the order for 4000 more copies.

A Hindi edition of the book is in the offing.

Meanwhile, brushing aside Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf’s claim that the flexibility shown by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in resolving the Kashmir issue has been withering over the last two years, Congress today asked "should we believe everything he has said as true?".

"That might be his thinking. He has said so many things in his book. Should we believe everything as true?", party spokesman Satyavrat Chaturvedi told reporters when asked his reaction on the book "In the Line of fire" and certain statements made in it.

Chaturvedi emphatically said that no one needed to have any doubt over the peace process initiated by the Prime Minister with Pakistan. He recalled that the Prime Minister has also made it clear that the process could go forward if Pakistan ensured that its soil was not used for terror activities against India.

Musharraf's book on bestseller.

There are many points that can't be ignored.
1)Book is written by an on duty military man about areas of national interest.This is a bad example that could be followed by others.Because unfortuantely military considers itself in Pakistan above law so no one in it wants to raise an eye brow.
2)The money being spent in promoting it is being spent from national funds,the money that belongs to people.If this is allowed for head of the state then could be allowed for other writers as well.
3)The issues he should have shed light on, are missing and the American administration didn't even ask him in his trip.The issue is the kidnapping of nationals by ISI an organisation that has been reduced to the hated organisation busy in voilating the rule of law, thanks to the cooperation between USA and Pakistan Military(IN US it is called by Pakistanis as NaPak Military.)
4)General has not made strong points about what and how USA has destroyed the peace on Afghan border earlier ,how Afghanistan was opium free in Taliban time.That US traditionally plays double game shakes hand with the Govt in center while simultaneously provokes rebellion in the periphery,those who want to know should read the book"Killing hope" by Willim Blum.Website on the name of the book.
May be book would not have sold as much, or he didn't he didn't had courage to speak truth,thats why the books with flirtish stories and scandals sell more doesn't mean that it is a better book.Just like to get promotions in Military flattery works more than merit.,or In US so called military officers coming on courses are watched carefully and only those who could become salesmen of US interests in Pakistan are given medals of honour so they can get promotions when back in the country.
