Has Musharraf Gone Nuts?

This was the question asked recently by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof based on the good general's comments on rape being a 'money-making' concern.

My own view of General Musharraf is that given the position he occupies, he is not doing enough to build institutions which can survive his reign, thereby leaving continued good governance to chance. On the other hand, as of right now there are no credible alternatives.

Therefore compared to the return of Zardari or the MMA, I'm reasonably satisfied with his performance. However if an 'enlightened moderate' like Musharraf is going to make such remarks then it is deeply worrying for the future of the country.

(Excellent piece on the BBC website)
