This was several years ago, but ever since, when I see a policeman I glance first at his abdomen. Never again have I seen as many as 14 out of 15 pot bellies at once, but there is enough evidence that Karachi's Police force is physically unfit.

People of Sindh were reassured, and proud, they had elected right-thinking legislators, when MPAs from both sides of the aisle signed a resolution rejecting the Council of Islamic Ideology's (CII) anti-female recommendations last Monday. The house strongly recommended scrapping the CII since it is unable to perform a positive role and has caused more damage than Pakistan can afford. The resolution was unanimously adopted when put to vote.
