KARACHI: Will the free laptops being distributed by the Punjab government control the activities of the suicide bombers and morality brigades that are widespread in Punjab? Why is it that the strongest support for religious bigotry seems to come from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab?
I will not be surprised if many of the university students who are getting these free laptops are already indoctrinated by religious extremists. What good will come of giving them laptops? They will only use the internet to spread rightwing religious propaganda.
