the protests were not peaceful, the pti workers starting throwing punches and slaps at the policemen. if there is one class of professionals that have absolutely no standing in our society, its the ordinary police constables. they are always crushed between the government orders and the rowdy crowd. can any one person think of raising a hand at the police anywhere in the western world and get away with it?? they will be brought down instantly with batons and tasers before they can even speak. secondly, for all the pti workers and taliban sympathizers out there, the time to honour yourself will soon be at an end. every promise Imran Khan made, every direction he promised has gone astray, and all the middle class and upper class professionals around the world especially in europe and the usa are completely frustrated with him, they don't talk about him any more. There are no more fundraisers for him. Slowly, only blind followers will remain wondering what happened to the new movement.
