Your editorial “The Missing Necklace” reminds me of 2005 devastating earth quake, when Hollywood super star Angelina Jolie visited Azad Kashmir to show solidarity with the victims of the earth quake and for fund raising. She was invited to the Prime Minister House in Islamabad by Yousaf Raza Gillani, where his family was especially flown in on a private jet, from Multan to join the Hollywood celebrity on an elaborate and lavish dinner. Later on Ms. Jolie expressed her views in The Times weekly lamenting the extravagance displayed by the incumbent Chief Executive of a poor country, in the middle of a natural disaster. What a shame? The government has learnt no lessons and the blatancy continues.
