    I have been reading Pakistaniat for quite sometime, but not thought of adding a comment on Deedai Beenas post on issues like Geyser Gas Waste, Kerry Luger, confusing Speed Sign boards at Islamabad on speed limits. His terrorism and signboards posts did get more attention showing the number of hits. Regrettable it is that no Authority, Civic Agency, NGO”s , Media, the Column Writers, Anchors of the various TV Channels and the Judiciary, and even the Editorial chief of the Media took cognizance to oversee whether an initiation taken on the issues could be furthered up in the Public interest.

  2. Yes Deedai -e-Beena is very Rite. Who are the AWAMS. None so far has come out with an answer.

    On the comments, it is always funny to me how our urban elites likes to decry others in the urban elites. Like that other article about voting too. So who is it who is criticizing the urban elites, the urban elites themselves. Something fishy here :-)

    Deeda-i-Beena,
    You have a very good point.

    However, I must ask who could we have voted for?

    PPP – Corrupt, failed twice, dynastic politics.
    PML(N) – Corrupt, failed twice, reason we ended up with a dictator
    PML(Q) – the party of lotas
    MMA – do I need a reason?
    MQM – lets not even get started here
    ANP – ethnic party

    The rest of the parties either boycotted.

    So you have a point, but if people stayed home it may be because that seemed like the best option. Although, you could argue that we should have justed voted for the party that sucks the least.
