As the country edges towards the New Year, hoping beyond hope that 2008 will be at least a slight improvement on the disaster that has been 2007, Munir A. Malik’s liver fails, and Aitzaz Ahsan, still in sub-jail, says he will boycott the upcoming elections. Judges, who did not take an oath under the PCO and have now been officially sacked, are still under house arrest. PEMRA issues a new set of instructions for Pakistani news channels. And if that wasn’t enough, new constitutional amendments are to be unveiled soon.
The Pakistani nation demands its Xanax NOW.
