    De-motions will only serve the purpose of de-moralizing law enforcing agencies.

    Undeserved promotions being cancelled will actually raise the morale of the police force.

    CJ your beloved LEJ issue press release to confess Shia and Hazara killing. You need to take direct action against LEJ and its chief Malik Ishaq. Its better if you don’t behave like innocent and ask for inquiry or report. Whole Pakistan knows you have sympathies with them and will never move against them.

    Mr. High and Mighty!
    What have you done with the deliberate defiance by the IG FC of the court orders? What have you done on the killing of Shias? Stop blaming others on your inadequacies and lack of integrity!
