It appears as if every political leader of Pakistan is certain that the Pakistani masses (all 180 million of them) support him/her. Some of them even dare anyone to challenge this certainty, although in not in so many words. It’s as if the number of heads at their rallies revealed the strength behind them – instant referendums several times over. However, if any of them really thinks so (and there are likely to be some), that individual needs to beam back to mother earth.
The Maya Khan issue was waiting to erupt sooner or later, and I am glad it did. At least now people, and hopefully the media authorities, will realise that the attitude of “in the media everything goes” is wrong. Limits, rules and regulations should be enforced, and content should be screened. Interestingly, it took Maya Khan’s gang raiding a public park to make people understand that certain important limits are being ignored.
