A headline in a section of the press on August 28, 2014 shouted “Can a crowd force an elected Prime Minister to step down, asks the Supreme Court”. As a common man who has suffered, I would say ‘Yes.’ When an elected Prime Minister behaves like a king and uses democracy to fulfill his own interests, then there is no alternative.

It is amazing how the Constitution is brought into the speech of the rulers again and again, who have not even bothered to honour the oath they took, which was to protect and improve Pakistan. We are lucky that there has been no more bloodshed after 14 people were murdered by the state police, in broad daylight, on camera in front of the whole country and no one so far has taken the blame for the act.


Islamabad, August 28.
