Our Protest Culture. Is it Justified ?
It is a daily routine in Lahore, not sure about other cities.
Some doctors, about fifty in strength, gathered at jail road and blocked the traffic to press the gov. to accept their demands. The result is traffic diversion to other roads and the whole city becomes a traffic mess. Girl student waiting outside their colleges for parents to pick them, school children exhausted and waiting in their vans, emergency patients crying in ambulances (last week one died in ambulance) but those fifty young doctors sitting on road and enjoying the warm sun and raising slogans. Last week it was paramedic staff doing the same at the same place.
Now come towards the mall road (where processions are banned by law, haha) and you will find another processon by students, lawyers, shopkeepers, nurses, transporters, clerks, teachers or any other section of the society can be found here on daily basis. Some times u can see more then one protest going on around Press club and having photo sessions. The result is traffic jam !
I, along with thousands others,is a victim of these protests gathering and protest against these protesters here as it is the only forum available to me. if i will try to block the road, i will be crushed by a speeding vehicle.
Shame on all these protesters who cause lost of lives and other losses daily to the citizens of Lahore ! May their demands never be accepted by the concerned authorties and they also remain in sufferings as they put us in suffering daily on the roads of lahore !
