FOR the last five or so years the nation has witnessed with great horror the brute demonstration of force by various lawyers. Lawyers are supposed to be custodians of law, and are not supposed to take the law into their hands, whatever may be the opposition. Two wrongs never make a right.

We have witnessed lawyers beating and manhandling lower court judges, police and their political opponents.

In a nutshell, might is right. If that be the case, then the military dictator is equally right.

Could not agree more but I think it will come to end now. Lawyers were encouraged directly and indirectly by PML-N. Now that this party is in power, it cannot afford to let lawlessness get out of hand. But then again, a criminal mind is a criminal mind - it cannot live without it.

That is the rule in our beloved country "might is right". Electronic media and courts are hand and gloves in trying to be the most powerful.
