The Scots have shown how democracy should function and how disputes should be solved under a democratic system, that killing and bloodshed isn’t a part of it. I wonder if Pakistan can ever adopt such a democratic system, but nothing happens on its own. The question is why don’t we do something about it? If the leader can’t do anything about it, what about the citizens? After all they are the ones facing all the consequences.
