The recent events in Punjab like the public lynching of two innocent boys in Sialkot with police connivance, brutal murders in rural areas for a few acres of land and the daily drama of black coats reveal extreme anarchy. Scenes such as a lawyer beating a police driver sitting in a vehicle with a shoe that bloodied his eye are a sad reflection on the state of affairs in the country. The role played by the Federal Law Minister in doling out money to his group of black coats that muddied the waters further should be condemned. It is said that when people of a country become lawless and berserk then it is time for an iron man to descend upon them to set them right. DR. MUHAMMAD YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, October 5.
