What a joke of a legal and forensic system! is there any impartially left in the institutes of Pakistan? for 12 hours media displayed live evidence after evidence of state aggression, state oppression and state terrorism yet this system has the guts to put the blame back on the victims of this violence! they went to the hospitals to change the records, they went to arms dealers to produce evidences of ammunition, they placed bought judges on the investigation bench, they only registered their own FIR on the incident refusing the other party's right to register an FIR! and still you think TUQ is to blame! this is the plight of majority of Pakistan's people who have fallen victim to state funded injustice! these deprived from Justice people are very quickly uniting with Qadri and soon they will enforce the rightful justice and launch a movement of civil disobedience.
