"New Delhi - Only hours after he returned home Monday from seven years in exile,
former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was arrested and deported to Saudi
Arabia. Mr. Sharif had returned intending to challenge Pakistani President
Pervez Musharraf's troubled, US-backed military rule in elections due by Oct.
This is not a good sign for Musharraf's plans for Pakistan. What Pakistan needs now, is a move towards moderation and a move towards democracy. I think that what he has done today is to move away from both of those points.
