    Hey , Dr. Awab do u eat PPP/mosquito repellent for breakfast , dineer and lunch . Be sensible. I am not a supporter of PPP (read brainless Jiyala). But , the photo in question crossed the boundary of appropriateness . Come on who wants to see a photo of a grown respected woman sitting in some ones lap.

    If it had been nawaz sharif sitting in Zias lap or shujaat sitting in mushies lap I wouldn’t have a problem or even if benazir was waving with zia holding a ppp flag , I wouldn’t have a problem with it but this photo is inappropriate and should have been removed.

    This Photo in any way does not represent our culture.

    how far can freedom of expression be stretched? do we need to locate relevnt models that are effective in present day intolerant political scenario of pakistan?

    The point is not freedom of expression, the point here is vandalism. It just goes on to show the savage, feudal roots of PPP. I'm sure MQM would have responded in much the same way had Altaf been lampooned. The criminal party that it is.

    There is a civil way to express disagreement, a way to escalate a matter, and to get objectionable material removed. Vandalism is not the answer, and its shocking that some of the commenters seem to think it is.
