Whew, for a moment there, I thought they were slaughtering goats at the President House!
It seems, according to "Dawn," that the "black magic" aimed at warding off "evil eyes." (Are you listening, Jundullah?)
Still unfazed by a man entrusted with the launch code in a volatile nuclear powerhouse under siege from Islamist extremists looking to goat entrails for protection and guidance?
The paper shares an "insiders" account of a covey of black partridges moving into President House, only to be "electrocuted when a live wire fell on their cage."
Bad omen. (Are you listening, President Obama?)
More evidence from "Dawn" that Zardari is arguably the nuclear-armed world's most superstitious leader:
That tradition from celebrities like Mahatma Gandhi may be followed for health reasons -- as may be the Neem tree that President Zardari introduced there for its anti-septic qualities."
