A headline in a section of the press on November 25, 2014 claimed “41 fake prisoners in Sindh jails,” I would like to know that when a person with fake degree can be elected as a member of parliament, in this country then this news should not have shocked anyone as I am sure that there are millions of innocent held in all jails of Pakistan. A country where money not only talks it kills and imprisons the poor why should we moan and cry? There are also corrupt law upholders who exchange a poor person for a wealthy convict; would that make him a fake prisoner?
