Take this twisted logic for instance - The 'People' believe that in order for someone to be effective in the anti-corruption committee the person must have had a corruption-free past record. Given the gargantuan stupidity of the assumption that merely being a honest person is a *necessary qualification* (maybe they believe it is a *sufficient qualification* as well) for one to be capable of effecting policy changes - why shouldn't a politician take advantage of this strange notion of "qualification". In a way this must make it so easy for politicians to gleefully dismantle Anna Hazare's effort.
So we now have a situation where respective parties are saying following things:
People: A good eye doctor must have never worn glasses.
Anna Hazare: Even if there is a small hint that the doctor has worn glasses, I will take his medical license away.
Politicians: Person A in the committee may have done LASIK now. But he definetely wore glasses in 2006. Look at this a photo where he is shown wearing glasses
Person A: I never wore glasses in 2006. This photo has been doctored and a glass has been digitally placed in the photo.
None of this would ever happen if people didn't have a stupid assumption to start with. Or if Anna Hazare said that he does not care about whether someone in the committee had been corrupt in the past or not. People in the committee must be paid professionals who will execute a task for a salary. But we have this romantic, flawed, irrational notion called "Qualification". And we won't stop to think about it because its just too popular a notion already.
