4.0 out of 5 stars a good book but..., 20 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: My Feudal Lord (Mass Market Paperback)
It was good yes, i too read this book in the space of a couple of nights, making my kid read his books to give me some peace and quiet. I learnt more about the history of pakistan and the role of the british in breaking up and dividing our country, i learnt about the elitist louses which riddle pakistani politics, leeching off the poor iliterates of pakistan, and i learnt about how corruption continues in politics making the dream of a nation of muslims called pakistan which people like my father fought for no more than a mirage. pakistan is even more hell bent on aping the west and taking money one way or another. I felt for the poor girl who was manipulated by khar but i must confess to feeling frustration that she let her own sense of elitism and 'keeping face' take the best years of her life and stop her leaving that louse that she was married to. She fought to get out of the marriage against great odds but i also was frankly incredulous at her loving reference to her own son as 'my little feudal lord' especially when the actual feudal lord had beaten her to within an inch of her life so many times, his feudal attitude had effectively imprisoned here. EWhy did she have to have faith in his politics when his personal life proved what a louse he was. Why did she put such store by being 'mrs mustafa khar' despite what he was doing to her? I also wondered if she would have persisted in her beliefs in elitism if she hadn't been beaten and treated so badly. I suspect she still does hold those elitist views behind it all. It is only a suspicion based on what she wrotes and that makes me a touch reticent. Otherwise, good on you girl for getting out. I suppose victimisation is a process where u don't know any longer what you think, i was just surprised that she had the strength to fight publicly for him despite him sleeping ewith her sister.

Thanks for a such a nice and balanced review,
It has become a custom in Pakistani politics to grab the seat of power and keep tight hold on it.. and if you know u can't stay for long -then suck the blood of the country, clean the banks of the money because it's your birth right- ....as there are so many other feudal lords corrupt politicians who are not criticizing the government because they want things to be better but.. to get the chance to loot the country even more.
There has never been democracy in Pakistan feudal lords appointing heirs to keep reigns of the party in strong family hold, frankly all of them corrupt , blood sucking vampires, parasites of the country.

I have the same sentiment as yours even before reading the book, we have seen our country suffer in the hands of all the dictators civilian or military, well civilian is a term that should be used for civilized people the Politicians have been far from civilized.
Thanks again for your review.
