On 27th january, 2011, three young men in Lahore lost their lives to an American diplomats shooting as reported in the press. There are others who sustained injuries. It was also reported in the press that the diplomat, who was carrying a pistol, pointed the weapon toward the police official who approached to intercept him. Let us recall, Dr Afia Siddiqui who has been sentenced cruelly in America. She did not take any Americans life and was only considered as a would-be criminal. Her crime was only pointing a weapon towards American solders. The question is, will the American diplomat who did a similar act against a Pakistani security official face the same fate in Pakistan.
