At a time when the whole nation is suffering severe conditions, target killings in Karachi, bomb blasts, price hikes, and load shedding of up to 18 to 20 hours all over Pakistan. Angry and violent Public reaction is already coming from most parts of Pakistan. Violent mobs are burning cars, looting banks, destroying government and private properties and police can’t do much about it. It is further destroying Pakistan and criminal elements are benefiting from it.
We need to address the mother of all problems, corruption!
Some of us need to understand why Imran Khan is focused on the judiciary issue specifically for these protests. We need to address the mother of all problems, as all issues are linked with the core issue of corruption. If we remove corruption all departments would function properly and produce the results which we all need.
Imran Khan always stressed on this core issue of Pakistan, Corruption!. Only independent justice system can bring the big criminals under the law or otherwise consider yourselves slaves of the Status Quo. Unless the rule of law is implemented throughout Pakistan, targeted killing in Karachi, power crisis, health crisis, education crisis or anything else, can not be resolved. As everything is linked with the corruption of government, both in center and provinces. Accusing each other is a game plan to confuse and divert public reaction. Which is not really working as the protests (other than the protest Mian sab did himself in Lahore) displayed great deal of anger for the Punjab government for failing completely in providing basic facilities in 4 years!
