While one can hear complains of VIP security and a large entourage being awarded to ministers in Pakistan, the question which comes to mind is why any police escort or security was not given to a sitting Federal Minister Shahbaz Bhatti? With all the threats received due to his outspoken opinion on sensitive issues, it is a serious lapse of security. It is time that the police and other law enforcement agencies should seriously consider revamping their security protocols regarding government officials, after such an attack.
