At least we are not Dubai (III)


Zeeshan Arshad April 21, 2010

DUBAI: As a journalist, it is George Fulton’s job to provide unbiased information but he has failed to do that. I have lived in Dubai for 28 years now and it is trendy and vibrant. One can concentrate on living a good and full life – simply because the odds of seeing a new day are much higher in Dubai than in Karachi. As for the city being a police state, when people in Dubai lodge a police complaint they actually get justice.

The very people who are supposed to protect us are not harassing us. We are safer, more secure, precisely because of this police state. Women are able to go out at any time of day alone without being harassed. There is law and order and a generally safe environment. As for the city’s love for money and the spending habits of its residents, what is the harm in that if they have earned it?
