General Zia driving round Islamabad came across long queuesof Pakistanis outside several embassies wanting visas and entrypermits to go abroad. He got out of his car and joined a line to find out why so many people were wanting to leave the country. No sooner did people see their President with them they left the queue to return to their homes. President Zia asked them why they were doing so. They replied: "If you are leaving Pakistan there is no need for us to go."
