Respect for the law


A pile of complications and controversies are building up in the case of Shaheed Salmaan Taseers murder. Where is our nation heading to? Are we giving the right to every individual of the state to decide what is right and wrong? If an individual can decide the punishment for another, then what is the point of law and order?

It is tragic to see that Salmaan Taseer gave his life to a fanatic who had been brainwashed by extremist elements. Majority have not even come forward to condemn this act openly. It is imperative that authorities get to the bottom of this case and seize repetition of such brutal acts.
