A for [Pine]Apple

This picture needs no commentary. It was taken at Chak 151 near Sargodha by Mohammad Awais. But it could really have been about anywhere in Pakistan. Or about Pakistan itself.

For those unable to read the board, the big bold red lettering reads, KHATRA! (DANGER!). The smaller prints reads:

Khabardar. Koee ajnabi shakhs shaam aath bajay kay baad gaoN meiN dakhil na ho. Warna apni jaan ha khod zimay-dar ho ga. Shukria. Barai meharbani apni shnakht karwaeiN. Minjanib: Rai Tahir Abbas Numbardar.

Warning. Strangers should not enter the village after 8PM. Otherwise, they will be responsible for their own safety (life). Thank you. Please identify yourself. On behalf of Rai Tahir Abbas Numbardar.

    I guess its a fair warning and the village has right to do so.

    Good discovery !

    The villagers are trying to manage the security on their own… They know the police….
