The dropscene

So, that’s how things work in Pakistan. You can mess with small fish all you want, but don’t mess with the crocodile. If nothing else, the police must have reached their revenue target of x million rupees. Now you can safely put those tinted shades and custom license plates back on your vehicle. The show is over.

    can someone tell me what a “zero level” tint is???
    none of the tinting ppl seem to know either!!

    and so much for our minister for “religious affairs”
    first the fake degree issue, and now claiming to be above the law.

    A zero level tint is an excuse to let high ranking officials off the hook without seeming guilty of favoritism/corruption.

    My own car, with tinted rear windows, was not caught, but my servant’s brother’s taxi was, due to sun tints on the front windshield. This guy works days at a drycleaner’s and evenings driving a taxi, and they locked up his taxi and demanded Rs. 10,000 jurmana if he wanted to get it back, while this j-ass Dr. Liaqat goes free at the drop of a hat. Talk about in equality.

    Its corruption plain and simple. There’s no other word for it – but lets not fool ourselves into thinking that this is Karachi or Pakistan problem, or even a South Asian problem. Its the same everywhere in the world, and more so in the ‘West’.

    I know from a journalist friend that this creep was caught playing grab-ass with a girl (inside the car) and car was parked when he was caught.

    That is why he had to make all that noise. Izzat bachani thi.

    I got 2 problems with this whole scene. First its ok to enforce legislation, but atleast give the public prior notice, that it is now against the law to have tinted mirrors.
    Second, you are bonding, taking to the thana.. kids for what, This is pakistan and going to the thana is no small affair in this country.. my parents would freak out seriously..
    The law they referenced says doing something on a vehicle that endangers the safety of others…how does zero tint mirrors translate to endangering the safety of traffic..
    The police is scary, got nothing better to do..than harass citizens..
    This whole country and everything in (politicians, police, bureaucrats, even common people who dont stand up for ones what is right..) it is screwed beyond… recognition..
