  1. He was a genius. Unfortunately, an evil genious. He was responsible for breaking up Pakistan because he refused to accept election results in which he lost. He established political wing of ISI. He ordered Pakistan army to fire upon its own citizens (army refused). He ws arrogant. He put Pakistan on the wrong path and Pakistan has never recovered since. He did start the atomic program (for which humpty dumpty takes credit). I don't mean to be disrespectful to the dead man but other than giving Pakistan an atomic bomb (which we can't use), there isn't much that he did for the country.
