Hina Rabbani Khar as Foreign Minister, is this a Joke

Greater fools have represented Pakistan at international forums. Ms. Khar will probably do worse. The post held by one of the most powerful men in the world Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto has been degraded to such an extent that Hina Rabbi Khar today holds the position of Foreign Minister. The PPPP has great stalwarts, Sherry Rehman, and Maleeha Lodhi who would have made great Foreign Ministers. Hina Rabbani Khar has no credentials, no personality and no depth of experience.

Ms Khar, was handicapped in attending ministerial meetings because she was not a full fledged minister–even though she had been looking after the foreign ministry as a junior minister. Her elevation rumored for some time, has now become a reality.

Her filling the slot is a useless exercise at a time when Pakistan needs dynamic, progressive and experienced folks in the Foreign Ministry. The external challenges are great and Islamabad needs a seasoned politician to run the things. The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Hina Rabbani Khar has confirmed that she was being elevated as a federal minister for foreign affairs.
