    Only Rs. 20,000 is given to the Flood victims, Is this money enough for them.

    Correction:

    Our “gitter-mitter” crowd wants to blame feudal, uneducated, population growth, poverty, resources, and now even the nature, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

    The fact is that they have usurped the rights of all Pakistanis and all through the decades. And they have used every means (legal and illegal) possible to keep it that way.

    The fact that the lower courts are not being expanded in size and superior courts not realigned in structure. The fact that judiciary gets a regular mocking with the “gitter-mitter” crowd, is exhibits 1, 2 and 3 for the denial of justice and equity.

    The fact that since Liaqat and up until now, through power held under every stripe and type possible, this is the single common theme in Pakistani lexicon, is exhibit number 4.

    The fact that the “great flooding” is being called the “great flood” is exhibit number 5.

    Actually, I think we have seen lots of good work by a lot of ordinary Pakistanis around these floods.

    It is no secret that Pakistanis are honest, hardworking, decent good and caring people.

    It is no news that the system needs ‘fixin’.

    And sooner the the “gitter-mitter” crowd from 3 cities gets around to admitting their (our) own failures, the sooner we will get to the “fixin bijness”.

    Our “gitter-mitter” crowd wants to blame feudal, uneducated, population growth, poverty, resources, etcetera, etcetera.

    The fact is that they have usurped the rights of all Pakistanis all through the decades. And they have used every means (legal and illegal) possible to keep it that way.

    Usurpers evil and enlightened are joined at the hips to deny equity and justice. They both spoke the same language of thuggery and threat. They both actively destroyed judiciary. Just a different choice of words. Same actions. Same results.

    And they both represent the “gitter-mitter” crowd.

    And so, it is the “gitter-mitter” crowd who needs to take responsibility and get the “fixin rollin”!

    The sooner, the better!

    (And I cannot thank the one and only “Malka Taranum” for loaning me “gitter-mitter” . I just love it! Can’t you tell?)
