State Against State

Protests.jpgWe thought when it came to escalation in the capital regarding the Lal Masjid controversy, it was the state against the masses. Ironically the tables turned yesterday bringing state against state.

A policeman died at the quarters in G-6. because of illness and that he was not granted any leave. He was brought in from Punjab as a reserve to take part in the government’s action against Lal masjid.

Yesterday the disgruntled policemen burst out into an instantaneous protest and blocked the Aabpara Chowk and ransacked the market over there. The whole area looked like a battle field and it was impossible to come towards g-6 from zero point.

    These hundreds of policemen brought in from the Punjab to “check” the two mullahs must be costing tax-payers millions of rupees. If the government does not have balls (which it does not) to force the writ and sort out blackmailer of Red Mosque, it should let these poor cops go back. Our governments have repeatedly demonstrated their dexterity is eating 100 proverbial onions and then offering its hindside for 100 hits by shoes. I can bet Rs 100, the Hafsa/Lal Masjid issue will get worse in coming months due to lack of decisiveness at the highest levels.

    This is a crying shame. The poor man died after repeatedly asking for leave or medical help. Its quite clear from this incident that the only “extremists” are sitting in Govt offices watching the suffering of the ordinary man (or policeman in this case).
