Feudal lords & their spoilt brats

January 22, 2013

SHAHZEB’s murder is a tale of a spoilt child. Unfortunately, this boy was at the receiving end. Being a regular commuter in the vicinity of Sea View, Zamzama, and other posh areas of Karachi, I could easily see how the spoilt children of feudal lords, corrupt bureaucrats, high-ranking police officials display their fathers’ ill-gotten wealth and power in the shape of expensive cars along with guards.

They have cultivated a habit of tit-for-tat and this intoxication often resulted in murders as happened on Dec 25. Who is going to educate this new breed of spoilt brats? I have no answer.
