@Nadir: Colonels do generals don't , some judges do but the Chief Justice doesn't . The difference is that in countries like uk everyone uses public transport including generals and judges. That is egalitarian which is based on the principle of rule of law, absence of VIP culture and I beleive also the cornerstone of Islam, and not the piety and judgement variety peddled in Pakistan. Problem starts when national security and personal security is used to condone departure from rule of law.
