Indonesia: A Blaming Nation

This happened again. The police arrested one of the leaders of the anti-graft body. The President seemed helplessly requested the police not to make any controversial moves, as they have already done in the near past. The request seemed went to deaf ears. The public outcry was directed to the President, blaming him too weak to sit on the position.

My Bodyguard

When I was covering the event, I was attacked by the mobs suspecting I was Chinese. Qutbi rescued me from the crowds, brought me home, put a Muslim cap on my head, and virtually became my bodyguard the whole day to guarantee my safety. “Today everybody is not human. Everybody is crazy,” he sighed, while walking through Lahore’s burning main street. “But nothing is special. Koi zabardast nehi,” he concluded.
