Already we are suffering due to the eccentricities of one deceased 'father of the nation' - so, please do not conjure any other 'father of the nation'. What is needed is for citizens to realized their rights and duties and do something good and honest dutifully. Any person or organization that helps the process is welcome and that opposes or obstructs it is unwelcome and has to be shunned. That's all.
