I want to focus on a very pertinent and definitely not ignorable issue about the recent incident of blinds protest. This protest might be in favour for a handful of blinds but it created a massive pain and hindrance for the rest of the citizens in Lahore. Being a citizen I was directly hit by the traffic jam, my son was ill and I was taking him to hospital. Because of the traffic jam, my son was in constant pain and was stuck in traffic for two hours. Those two hours were a complete misery for my family. We always criticise government for their VIP protocols but if you look at the other side of the coin we are exactly on the same page with the government.
I would really want people to have an awareness about such protests which are constant pain for their fellow citizens and they are putting us in misery. Instead of making things worse for their own citizen they should perform some other steps to register their protest.
