On April 4, 2018, some Chinese workers apparently went berserk and attacked policemen stationed there to provide security to the Chinese. Now that the workers have been deported, the incident will soon be forgotten. But somehow no one, not even our religious scholars noted this news item: “According to police officials, Chinese engineers and other officials wanted to leave their camp in Khanewal and visit a "red-light" area on Tuesday night. They resorted to agitation when denied permission to leave the camp without being accompanied by security officials…..” (https://www.dawn.com/news/1399531)

"Red-light" area?? In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan?? And in the very place where Maulana Tariq Jamil was born? We know what happens in such red light areas, we can say with certainty that the Chinese didn’t want to go there to play games like Scrabble or Ludo or Monopoly with women in that locality. And we also know that in almost all Pakistani cities such places exist where women practice what is called the oldest profession in the world. We also know that policemen pay huge sums to get posted to such localities to earn their fortunes. If the DPO and other police officers had ensured that there was no red light area in their jurisdiction, the Chinese would never have heard of the place and the scuffle would never have taken place. So the government of Shehbaz Sharif should sack the DPO and other police officers for this gross negligence.
