Much publicized promiscuous behavior the Pakistani President – criticized

In a "Letter to the Editor" of Asian Tribune, Adnan Gill, a Pakistani living in Los Angeles, also a regular contributor to ‘Asian Tribune’ has vent his frustration over the behavior of Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari displayed during his meeting with the American Vice-Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.

In the letter, Adnan Gill pointed out, "If his personal remarks, unbecoming of a head of state, were not embarrassing enough for the Pakistani community settled in America, most of us are dumbfounded over the spin his party is putting in his defense; e.g. it’s considered as a compliment in US."

Given below the full text of the “Letter to the Editor”:

"Dear Editor,

Please allow me to voice my frustration over the much publicized promiscuous behavior the Pakistani president displayed during his meeting with the American Vice-Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin. If his personal remarks, unbecoming of a head of state, were not embarrassing enough for the Pakistani community settled in America, most of us are dumbfounded over the spin his party is putting in his defense; e.g. it’s considered as a compliment in US.

I have lived in the US for some 20 years. During the last couple of decades, I have learned a thing or two about the American culture, so when I say the following, I speak from personal experience:

a) Well over 50% Americans consider themselves to be morally conservatives. The party of Sarah Palin, the Republicans, pride themselves to be a party of social and moral conservatives.

b) Had I ever passed such comments, at job or business, I would have been fired from my job, or at minimum, would have been sued for sexual-harassment.

c) Have we already forgotten the price President Bill Clinton had to pay for his promiscuous behavior?

d) He was impeached for it!

I would have never asked the following, had Mr. Zardari’s apologists did not put-up such a morally bankrupt defense for his embarrassing antics: How would have we, and especially Mr. Zardari’s apologists, reacted had a foreign dignitary passed similar chauvinistic remarks against a female leader of Pakistan?

Sincerely,

Adnan Gill,
Los Angeles,
United States of America."
