Key global figures of the past 150 years that have shaped history, politics and arts have stood here to make a point. And the list not only includes those who have represented political authority or imperial power, but also those who have gone the extra mile to challenge it. So, in the past few years if Paul Bremer – imperial pro-consul for Iraq after its brutal conquest by the legions of the Bush administration- spoke here, his exact opposite, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, who is still in refuge from America’s imperial reach inside the Ecuador’s Embassy in London, also graced the same spot.

For Aitzaz Ahsan, who claimed during the questions-and-answers session that he can be taken out of the PPP but it cannot be taken out of him, may have been doubly sweet, for he can see an. point to a beautiful portrait of his leader, Benazir Bhutto, that adorned the walls to his left.
