Big Brother (II)

Letter April 17, 2010

LAHORE: With regard to your editorial ‘Reining in Big Brother’, I am surprised that there is a hullabaloo about the bugging of phones by intelligence agencies. Do we not live in a state that is dominated by the military establishment where the intelligence apparatus pries into the lives of any citizen they want? What is needed is some kind of parliamentary accountability especially now that the much-trumpeted 18th amendment has been passed.

The fact is that it will be sovereign only when all government organisations, including our intelligence agencies, are answerable to it.
