    Democracy: Nawaz is running PMLN for last 20+ years, no where in world we have a leader of a democratic party for that long (only dictators, but that is a separate discussion), does he still need to get matured?
    Media: It is shame that media shows dead bodies on the tv everyday, it has nothing to do with being not mature, it is about discipline and code of conduct.
    Judiciary: Judiciary is being run by crooks, CJ.Iftikhar is not a child, he is a mature person yet no where in the world we get an example of victims being judges in their own case.

    The judiciary, democracy and media in Pakistan is staffed by adults, who consider themselves “professionals”. Many have gray beards and are not 16-year olds that we have to accept excuses for them that “bachay hain”.

    It also sounds like a variation of the “virsa siyasat” that political parties have been playing since February 2008.

    For the longest time Pakistan had heavily censored print and electronic media. For a few years now we have both media relatively free. But it seems our expectations of it are bordering on childishness. I am reminded of the story I had heard of a lone child who incessantly complained to his parents about not having a sibling to play with. His father said to him,”son, you are now almost six. You won’t be able to play with a newborn baby”. “No!”, protested the wide-eyed child,”he has to be born five years old”.

    The state of the media, like so many other things in our society, need time to improve and mature. At least it has some measure of freedom now, so let us be patient and try to
    improve it. Let us be grateful that, now, there is a possibility that it might. The same is true of the institutions of democracy and judiciary in Pakistan.
