Crimes in Pakistan are covered up to hide gross incompetence. Thus we now hear about the order of banning the use of mobile phones by police within police stations. The rationale given in the order is laughable at best and a blatant admission of lack of ability.
The simple facts are these — the crime was committed; citizens were illegally tortured. The proof in the form of video was made available.
Now, instead of focusing on the crime, an order was issued to ban the recording and circulation of videos of officials committing crimes. Will this order be rescinded and the actual crime be punished?
We all know the answer to that. We can surely expect the next order to be that anyone recording any police official anywhere will be charged and be treated as a criminal.
