A stream behind Quaid-e-Azam University, one of the only few streams still void of waste water in Islamabad.

Pretty, innit?

    پولیس سے تو ڈرنا پڑتا ہے نا جی
    ایک تو جگہ پر سکون
    دوسرے لوگوں کی نا اامد نا جامد
    تیسرے قاءداعظم یونیورسٹی کے پیچھے

    The police in that area is notorious about their behaviour. I won’t mention the true instances I know of, but I’ll tell you something from a TV clip they made:

    A group of families went on a picnic to Shadrah. Dacoits arrived at the scene and demanded the usual. The men of the family took out weapons and scared the dacoits away. A while later, police arrived on the scene and said they heard that these people are carrying illegal weapons. The family showed the police the plastic toy weapons of their kids that they used to scare off the bandits. The police left, and shortly after, the dacoits came back and… :)

    Now Police is changed a lot, they do respect, my experience with family at the Damane-koh while we were on the way to Peer sohawah, they stoped us check the papers, said " be careful while you drive ", with smile.

    I think it depends how you react when you face the police.
