An “official” strike

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Apparently, some people believe that they have a mandate to endanger lives and burn property if a court verdict goes against them. I passed Bilawal House ten minutes before the first bus was torched there. Every car and vehicle was being carefully checked by the police, but they did not stop the hooligans from attacking and setting buses on fire.

Until now, democracy for the PPP meant unlimited loot and plunder. Now the party should redefine it to include indiscriminate killing and burning as well.
