  1. Intolerable. A Police officer in Uniform should be respected as a symbol of justice but sadly the uniform has been degraded by its misuse both by its wearers and by powerful citizens. The law of the jungle prevails especially in Karachi. Lesser beasts are devoured by the greater or more savage ones.

    A large proportion of Karachi, nay, Sind Police is badly riddled with abuse of power, graft and nepotism or has divided loyalties towards powerful individuals and to the Law. This does not mean that the accused should escape facing the full brunt of law, sadly this will not happen. Influential criminals are getting away with daylight murder let alone slapping a few cops.
