The NSC is substantially different this time around, just as the current government is. BCB has been operating as a de facto autonomous body for the last 15 years, hence the corruption and lack of accountability. Besides completely legitimizing lack of public accountability, total autonomy will also mean paying hefty taxes, rent for stadiums and other facilities, and a better opportunity to fabricate excuses for not spending money where it needs to be spent.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
