AFTER all the violence it unleashed recently on streets across the country, the religio-political party concerned was banned by the government, but then the government officials held talks with the same party, released its chief, accepted its demands and then the said party was allowed to contest by-polls in Karachi. People are wondering whatever happened to the ban. All the loss of lives and property turned out to be nothing but collateral damage. The nation would do well now to be ready for a similar show in the future.
