CCPO Lahore in a recent statement has encouraged the civilians to nab and kill the dacoits themselves for which, he said, they would be awarded commendations as well as money. Going by the same logic, are we allowed to kill the 'dacoits' who have looted this country in the last 61 years. Most people are prepared to do this sacred duty regardless of the prize. -DR IRFAN ZAFAR, Islamabad, via e-mail, January 1.
