    you still think we are free and live in a "democracy" or even a civilized society?



  • How Generals and top civil bureaucrats appointments as ambassadors are out of merit? What is the qualification needed for Ambassador?



  • "What is the qualification needed for Ambassador?"

    Normally they are from Pakistan Foreign Service and trained to do the job and most importantly they should be able to

    look after the interest of Pakistan and Pakistanis in the country they are posted.



  • Even in developed world important Ambassadorships goes to high profile figures not career diplomats. In recent years beside Masood Khan I don't recall any foreign service personnel appointed as ambassador in US.



  • "In recent years beside Masood Khan I don't recall any foreign service personnel appointed as ambassador in US."

    There are other countries in the world apart from US??

    The over-riding qualification is the ability to look after the interest of the country and its citizens. An excellent example of a non-career diplomat was Dr. Maleeha Lodhi for her services in the US and Great Britain.



  • Maleeha Lodhi is not alone we have long list of exemplary diplomats who dance on GHQ's tunes. The only traitor is Hussain Hiqani who begged to differ with GHQ.



  • "Maleeha Lodhi is not alone we have long list of exemplary diplomats who dance on GHQ's tunes"

    Then why ask

    What is the qualification needed for Ambassador?
