Taking care of ourselves... By Danish

News reports indicate that the residents of Karachi are making all out efforts to protect themselves by any means necessary against the widespread violence that has engulfed the city. Those who can afford it are now getting their cars fitted with bulletproof windows — a very costly endeavour. They are even going so far as to make their cars completely bomb- and bullet-proof.
This is what it has come down to: citizens watching out for themselves because the authorities and law enforcement agencies are clueless how to do so. People are already spending a fortune in hiring security guards and the elite force for their own protection; now they have turned to this extreme measure. Will the police and security agencies in this country please wake up and provide the citizens with some safety and protection?
