With reference to the editorial United against a common foe (Our Take, April 4), the Pakistan government cannot deny the involvement of Hafiz Saeed and his cohorts in the 26/11 Mumbai blasts anymore. However, it is unlikely that the US’s announcement of a bounty of $10 million on Saeed’s head will push Pakistan to take action against the terrorist soon. Instead of waiting for Pakistan to do something, the US should move against Saeed like it did with Osama bin Laden.

The editorial Some order in the judiciary (Our Take, April 2) correctly points out that the Judicial Standards and Accou-ntability Bill, 2010, is a good Bill but much more needs to be done to make the judiciary corruption-free. While it is heartening that citizens can now lodge a complaint against a judge, the proposed mechanism to study and decide on it will require a lot of time. Even though the Bill simplifies the procedure for the removal of judges, it remains to be seen whether it is in consonance with Article 124(5) of the Constitution.

Batting for a long innings
The report IPL not moneyball anymore (April 4) is correct in stating that due to falling TRPs, sponsors now want to get out of it and even the advertisement slots are not generating enough revenue. The biggest casualty of too much cricket is not low TRPs, but the fact that many international cricketers are suffering from injuries. This will eventually lead to several top-notch players missing important national assignments. While money is no doubt an important factor for a cricketer, it is his performance also that will ensure a place in the history books.
