It seems that the Jang Group [the leading Urdu news paper in Pakistan] is getting a little rustic around the edges of news reporting, a few days back it had inadvertently made Twitter as a Microsoft blog and more recently it has fumbled another hilarious blunder on the local front.
The blunder comes when a news item was published early Monday morning on the Jang website where it reported that a gangster leader Rehman Dakait [Dakait means robber in urdu] was killed in a police encounter along with his three accomplices. The overall report was generally spot on until the very last sentence where the editor accidentally spoke his heart out to say…
It must be mentioned that Rehman Malik‘s head bounty was at fifty lakh and he had over 80 cases registered against him.
It must be mentioned that Rehman Malik is actually the Minister of Interior who is regrettably alive an well and still busy scheming more ways to loot and plunder this country with some unimaginable levels of corruption reaching into the billions if not more. At the moment that news item has been updated to eliminate the gaff, but its heartening to see that we are not the only ones who refer to Rehman Malik as Rehman Dakait – Gaad save us
