    There was a recent case of robbery in a house in Rawalpindi in which three policemen were allegedly involved. Th residents of the house caught the robbers, one of whom was found having a duty cart of Police in his pocket. They handed over the robbers to the Police, but to their utter surprise the police let the accused get away. The victims then reported the case to the media, on the report by which the Chief Minister took notice of the case. And lo, all the three accused were found to be policemen, against whom the case of bribery has been duly lodged. They are all along with the S.I. who had let them get away are reportedly under remand now.

    Does this not justify the vigilante action taken by the villagers of Sialkot against the robbers, as if they had been policemen they would have got away easily.

    Btw, can any body let us know the latest position of the Sialkot case?

    The tragic murder of the two young boys in sialkot highlights the brutality and self righteousness that has become our society… that has become us… we pounce on the weak and the vulnerable… wood chipswe are all feudal in the way we live our lives and the way we think… we are all bullies and by that definition, also cowards.

    Very sensibly written piece. Thank you for writing. We need sanity right now, not more emotionalism.

    Actually, I was quite struck in the original video by how many moulvi types were in the lynch mob.
