The apologist at BBC didn’t waste time finding excuses for dysfunctionality that is Pakistan.
In Pakistan, the army and its intelligence wing are by far the most powerful institutions – and the country has had repeated spells of military rule.
The abiding sense of a military threat from its much larger neighbour has – many feel – boosted the power of the armed forces and hindered the development of a mature democracy.
And the excuse for this is? How do the “many feel” about this?
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistani police have arrested 25 members of an informal village council accused of ordering the rape of a 16-year-old girl as revenge for her brother’s alleged sexual assault of another girl.
The Supreme Court also requested a report on the case, which echoed a notorious case from 2002 in which another teenager was gang-raped on a local council’s order.
