    What about filing a criminal case of neglect against the Governor and the Chief Minister of Sindh? and why not against the president and prime Minister….

    I second these protests, but without Media's support they wouldn't do any good.

    I want to see media protesting, as they protested against the alleged flogging, but now, this wouldn't happen. Where would the sponsorship come from?
