Mian Sahib has compared himself to a lion and the opposition parties to 100 jackals , which according to him, in an unequal duel. The image of a lion of today is that of a marauding brute. It does not befit Mian Sahib to reduce himself even symbolically to animal status. A lion compares poorly with a jackal which is a cunning animal while the lion is a brute and so-called king of the jungle. Pakistan is not a jungle but a country of 200 million people. Mian Sahib needs to adopt the symbol of a Shaheen instead of a lion , which is degrading in our parlance.
