The Chairman of the Higher Education Commission, Prof Javed Leghari has become the darling of media these days as he is the man who is going to decide about the status of the degrees of the parliamentarians. Javed Leghari is a poor sacrificial goat, who is ready to be sacrificed on the altar of war between media and the parliament.
Now as the limelight moves towards the degrees of members from the Sindh, things become more restive and interesting and disgusting. Sindh Home Minister Zulfikar Mirza is exerting all sorts of pressures on Dr Javed Leghari to stop him from verification of the parliamentarians’ degrees, and now the chairman HEC is seeking help from the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani as threats and political pressure on the HEC and his own family has mounted to alarming proportions.
Media should spare the poor guy and shouldn’t be projecting him a lot, as he is a mere government employee who is finding himself in the heat of the affairs, and now he is being used as pawn by the media. Media is going to forget the guy after his fifteen minute of fame, but the loser will be him, as perhaps nothing is going to change here.
And then there is a grave possibility about Javed Leghari’s younger brother Farooq Leghari behind the bars for an indefinite period of time.
