What does PPP/PML know about Democracy?


Pakistan People's Party, especially Asif Ali Zardari has been making pubic statements about his dedication to democracy. On Multiple occasions he has made public comments on how he wants to restore democracy. PPP aren't the only ones who have been making such statements, Pakistan Muslim League, including Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif have been making statements that they will not rest in peace until the democratic judges are restored, and a Democratic President has been elected. How much truth is there in these statements and are these statements made out of arrogance to remove someone that took them out of power.

Let us take a look at the facts, first of all how much respect does either of these parties have for democracy, well, not enough to implement democracy into their own parties, Nawaz Sharif, and Shahbaz Sharif have been exchanging the presidency for last 15-years. I'm sure they have other capable leaders in the party that have fresh and different idea about where to take the party, but why aren't they given a chance. Same With PPP, after the unfortunate assassination of Benazir Bhutto, instead of nominating Makhdoom Amin Fahim, the most senior member of the party as the chairman they went chose a 19 year old inexperienced boy, they were no elections in the party, just as a side note when the part was formed by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, as a part of the party creed he wrote"...democracy is our politics...all power to the people", but current PPP has mopped the floor with Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto's principals. To cause another blow to democracy PPP had all of it's chair-people from the Bhutto family.

How can these two parties talk to us about democracy when they themselves don't even practice it in their own parties, thus both Pakistan Muslim League and Pakistan People's Party are the the Munafiq (Hypocrites) Parties. "...God beareth witness that the hypocrites are indeed liars." - (Qur'an 63:1).
