Where does mercy sell?

“Twenty percent of our population is going towards the 21st century and 80 percent of the population is still living in the 14th century”

said the inspirational Kishwar Naheed once & after reading this story one wonders if equation is worse if only women are considered here.

Last month, near KPC, i saw 2-3 young guls putting up a banner. Don’t know if it’s same story but how come these protests don’t reach the responsible? And why the heck the IG has to be reached for this. Was that not supposed to be a thanna matter at first?

It’s ironic that almost every such case has to reach poor president or CJP (that too by media) to be able to qualify the status of something-to-work-on. If our officers could lessen guarding VIP’s (6000 policemen) they may concentrate on more important tasks & these people don’t have to go to KPC to protest.

Also Does the IG ever bother to read papers? Its 5th year since police reforms in 2002. Where the women should go to buy mercy if an IG is not giving a response?

What is sad in this story is that the accused is so bold that he thinks the victim’s family is liable to pay five million rupees for damaging his reputation as a Nazim.

Someone recently proposed a unique idea on police reforms which I will cover later (waiting more info) but I guess it is quite valid. It says there is no way current police could be reformed. It’s full of filth. It can be replaced & then removed, not corrected. Probably it has a weight. In women cases the majority comes from an environment where women are not more than cattle. Whose own sisters, mothers & women are oppressed. How can they understand a noble concept like women rights?

    Rape trials should be expedited and the culprits could be hanged ASAP ‘cos they no longer deserve to live. Why does this army govt. sort of gets gun-shy when dealing with rape cases? I don’t get it. May be they are guilty conscious of their own wrong-doings……….

    Musharraf has already disgraced Pakistan & Islam worldwide for mishandling Mukhatar Mai’s case. that was a huge failure on his part but he does not seem to have learn any lesson yet. What a moron…….

    when police and courts are unable to give justice to victims then obviously they’ll turn to who ever that listens to them be it Lal Masjid or any one else… Lal Masjid just bought the matter to limelight by making hue and cry… it just proves that when issue is highlighted in media then out of emabrassment and public pressure govt takes prompt action which otherwise it won’t have taken had the issue not been highlighted…

    i personally don’t like people nitpicking grammatical mistakes… its content that matters and as long as the message gets across then spell mistakes grammatical mistakes doesn’t matter much

    @MB;as per your request, a few errors are listed below:

    “Also Does the IG never bother to read papers? Its 5th year since police reforms in 2002. Where the women should go to buy mercy if an IG is not giving a response?”

    1)..the IG “ever” bother

    2) people go to the police to get justice and not buy mery!

    MB: just suggestions…hope u won’t mind:)


    yup, iam an ex-petarian…r u too?

  13. MB (unregistered) on April 28th, 2007 @ 3:04 am

    I have made the change, thanks.
    As for buying mercy, it was used sarcastically. It meant that though justice should be available to people without any hindrance. They are willing to buy it if police has started selling it.

    I am not a petarian but i had friends so i was just asking as in tajassus
