Rangers’ wrangling between the province and the centre has gone rather beyond the norms and provided the electronic media with a rating rat race adding constantly high pitch overtones to the hype created by its anchors and the panellists from all political parties dispensing their pearls of wisdom and indulging in all kinds of hair splitting. If one comes to think of it, why is anyone afraid of the Rangers and wants the NAB, Police, FIA to probe his/her alleged corruption cases? There is saying in Persian, “Aan ra keh hisabesh pak ast – Az muhasabah cheh baak ast”. (If anyone’s accounts are clean - he fears not any audit). What has he/she to hide from the Rangers that he/she wants to disclose to the other civil agencies? Or, is it because the alleged corrupt feel that they would be able to have their way with the others but not the Rangers? I hope not, for, if such is the assumption th! en it would tarnish the credibility of the NAB, Police and the FIA etc. in the eyes of general public.
Hence, if you have nothing to hide/fear be honest and have faith in Allah and let even Rangers probe the cases, for, you ladies and gentlemen are honest and patriotic Pakistanis.
