From elation to regrets, reservations to consensus, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan's constitution has been amended, unopposed, for the 21st time in the country's history. The just passed bill to amend the article 175 of the constitution states the gravity of the problem. "Extraordinary situation and circumstances exist, which demand special measures for speedy trial of certain offences...there exists grave and unprecedented threat to the integrity of Pakistan." Desperate times do call for desperate measures.
