This photo is recently been making rounds on the internet. The text, though a bit out of ‘qaafia’ and ‘wazan’ is self-explanatory.

For the past few years, writings on Rickshaw backs have started to emerge as a commentary on Pakistani society. We’ve covered them at ATP atleast three time. It also makes us curious whether it is the same rickshaw (see here and here) or different rickshaws with the same painter at work. Note the top most line and the words ‘Always Speak the Truth’ at the bottom are the same in all three rickshaw photos.
