    hahah ,,, so what are you expecting?? should the rangers and police show up during afternoon and bring us a birthday cake? and knock at the door and say please open the door, or else we will go back. why does people here always have a notion that all that good and innocent are people and all that evil is the law and the police and rangers? if people live with harmony why will these people even bother to show up in the middle of the night. They are doing their job, for our own protection.

    the paki police and rangers have learned atleast something from taliban to intrude in the darknight on peacefull people.
    how about the long list of criminals which they have, involved from the 1988 sectarain voilance till now. they are well protected but this is just show off…..

    Completely disagree with Sajid sb, two incidence has happened infront of police and rangers WHY they arrest them at the spot? at least rangers should fired bullets in the air to see a little resist from them, many incidents happend in the past in the presence of police and rangers.

    So there must be a question mark on performance of police and rangers !

    I am trying to figure out how could what I said mean what was apparently understood by some. Don’t blame me for your inability to understand sarcasm, friends.
