All the claims of Punjab Government over the years regarding police reforms and changing ‘Thana’ culture have once again been exposed on Dec 3. Their brutal torture on disabled persons, who were protesting for their right is extremely condemnable. It seems that ‘public friendly police’ is like asking for snow falling in the desert. Government of Punjab is very consistent when it comes to establishing committees whenever untoward incidents happen, as there is a general rule in our part of the world, if you want to sweep any issue under the carpet just constitute a committee of ‘Baboos’ who will make sure that the truth never comes to light. However, the good news is that as always the ‘Khadm e Ala’ has taken a serious notice of the incident. As usual nothing will come of it!
