Prison as ornament


The Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has stated that prison is an ornament of politicians. This statement can have dangerous repercussions. Generally, the prisoners are criminals of all sorts. Attributing a good thing, like an ornament, to prison might send negative signals. The criminals might consider prison as a sort of distinction rather than a place of perdition. Moreover, ornaments are mostly worn by women and politicians cannot be included in that category only.
