“The statement shows the chief minister of Punjab is afraid of the Taliban. I offer my dupatta (scarf) to him. He should wear this and sit in the chief minister’s house. The women of the frontier province are ready to protect him,” she said as she threw her scarf on the floor of the North West Frontier Provincial Assembly.”

–Did she know that by throwing her Dupatta she is highlighting the fact that women are weak? May be she does.

Has CM come out to clear the air by now ornot? Kayani summoned him.

He has only stated in innocence what cunning persons like Zardari, Kiyani, Musharraf don’t disclose in public.
