Like many other manners; we do not know how, when and where to manifest out feelings. The way the paramedics created mess on Lahore’s Jail Road a couple of days back depicts the level of our inhumanity.
Due to hours of the wheel jam, a heart patient lady breathed her last in an ambulance. Hell with the protestors and the government which forced them to come on roads. If we still believe on the saying of Allah Almighty that “Murder of one human being is

Always try to fix the fault lines with cool mind. Force must be the last option, but it must not harm innocent people even then. The art of demonstration must acquiesce with the norms of humanity.
