While the city of Karachi is a witness to the standoff between MQM and the rest of the opposition which is gearing up for the arrival of the Chief Justice of Pakistan to Karachi. We take a short breather to enjoy looking at an interesting quarter page print advertisement which appeared in one of the inside pages of Karachi’s leading Dawn Newspaper just a few days back…..
Quite Apparently it reads
Benazir Bhutto is On Sale Now, for Rs. 75/- ONLY
WOW, Thats dirt cheap I thought this cunning lady was going to demand a lot more from Mushy but maybe she is willing to compromise for the wealth she plans to plunder…. Not a bad deal after all…… .
OK OK, I have to agree with you that this quarter page add is definitely an advertisement for Herald, a sister publication of the Dawn Group, but simply take a look at the advertisement and you must appreciate the accidental (read deliberate) effort to portray a strong message to the readers of Dawn. We could chalk it down as a blooper, but somehow I suspect an evil devised plan from the Dawn headquarters on I I Chundrigarh Road (My readers know me well that I simply love a conspiracy)
BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! One must give a standing ovation to Dawn for standing up and telling the truth as it is.
(PS I still have to buy a copy and read within the pages to see if this advertisement is as good as what it conveys, but I dread sheÃ…â€º bargained for a lot more then mere Rs 75)
