We had heard of three kinds of adamant attitudes or hutt known as Raj hutt, Ballhutt and Tirya hutt devoting adamant ruler, child and a woman. However, Pakistan is suffering from a fourth kind of adamant attitude of some political parties, which can be defined as Siasi hutt. It is said in the Holy Quran that some tribal leaders did not accept Islam only because they had refused in the first instance to accept the message. Abu Jehal was prime example of this adamant attitude or hutt. It appears the same kind of hutt is displayed by the ANP and Sindhi political parties especially nationalist ones in refusing to agree to building Kalabagh dam that would have solved all our problems of power and water shortage and high cost of power. It would have given us benefit of at least two billion US dollars per year since 1993 when it could have been built thus furnishing 36 billion US dollars worth of power and crops. We would have been free of IMF clutches at present and masses would have heaved a sigh of relief. DR. MUHAMMAD YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, November 4.
