While our television screens kept showing the scenes of violence against innocent people in Lahore, one brave soul kept breaking the windows of cars parked on the street. This brave man belongs to PML-N, and is a ‘pet’ of Shahbaz Sharif, who has lovingly called him ‘Sher-i-Lahore’, which can be loosely translated as the lion of Lahore. The entire country is amazed and shocked at such blatant law-breaking not only in the presence of the police, but with their endorsement. This ‘lion’ is the true face of our rulers, who hide behind sentences such as “I had no idea what was happening”, which, coming from a Chief Minister of a province, is either the height of ridicule or the height of stupidity.
