Every so often a story emerges from the land of Pakistan that leaves me wondering on which planet I live. I have met dozens of people who come from Pakistan,and they, invariably are intelligent, wise and deeply religious. Most are devout Muslims with high human values, and then up out of nowhere comes a strange story which leaves me baffled. In the land of Pakistan there dwells a NINE MONTH OLD TODDLER WHO IS NOW IN JAIL! Yes, he is in jail. Now, what exactly could a nine month old toddler do that would lead to a jail term? I guess he could wet his diaper or cry or make life difficult for parents.
This is the crime: police raided his home and the toddler threw some stones at the cops. He was seized, his diapers confiscated, and sent directly to the police station where the child was finger printed and told that from this day foreword he has a criminal record. HUH!
