Well, cartoons seem to be bothering our politicians, way too much,  be they are on school textbooks or on social networks! 😉 . Are cartoons just not a medium of expression ? Who defines ‘Negative References’ ? Political columns , hundreds in number, everyday, get pressed in newspapers and online. Even those writings  criticize  politicians and political scenarios of recent times and of the past. Like writing even drawing is a way of  expression about a thing,person or situation. Isn’t it ? What are we scared about as politicians ? What is their in the past which we do not want our future generations to know ? Someday, it may happen that books criticizing particular politicians of past and their decisions may be banned ! Is this democracy or hypocrisy in the name of it ? 🙁

Was it Poor Communication between  Pakistani Official that created confusion ?

It is astonishing that Pakistani President’s Office has completely taken a u-turn. Pakistani Media had been highlighting the release of  Sarabjit and critics and extremist groups were also raising voice against this decision of the President.Probably that made the President’s Office name Surjit Singh to be the one to be released and not Sarabjit. And if this was some intentional decision of mocking at India, it is time Pakistan grows up ! Was it lack of Communication between Pakistani officials or Pakistan Government’s  intentional mischief ? The biggest question over here is Surjit Singh has already spend 35 years in Pakistan Jail and that is 5 years more than the term he was supposed to serve.His release was anyways due and did not need any confirmation from Pakistani President’s Office. What made them announce Surjit Singh’s release ? What took the Pakistani Government almost 8 hours to rectify the Media Report about Sarabjit Singh’s release ? This act was either deliberate or a perfect u-turn after constant criticisms from extremist groups which scared the Pakistani President,Zardari .
