Political toilets

How heavily Pakistan is politicized after 10 years of Afghan war and advent of free media can be gauged by the fact that doors of public toilets carry political slogans and not vulgar jokes now. From Hazara province demands to NATO murdabad. From Altaf Hussain kutta, MQM kafir to satire on Wahabism – all is there to greet you. Next time you visit a toilet on the highways of Pakistan, brace yourself to get a glimpse of popular public sentiment.

    • I would agree with you. We have some forums where people’s voices can be heard. This political frustration is more evident in more repressive areas in interior Sindh than central and northern Punjab; I never saw such political messages around here in Lahore.
