It has been recently reported that lawyers thrashed two motorway inspectors at Lahore, as they arrived at the high court for a case regarding issuance of fine to a lawyer. This is a shocking incident, highlighting the disregard for the rule of law by the ones who are supposed to uphold it. If our legal fraternity does not abide the law and respect the law enforcement apparatus, then how can we expect any citizen to do so? Such examples can only lead to chaos and anarchy. This also highlights the differences which exists between the law enforcement institutions and the legal apparatus. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, November 4.
