Efforts intensify to press Waheeda Shah issue

Efforts have been accelerated to knock down the disgraceful act of slapping a poling agent by PPP candidate Waheeda Shah during the polling in the constituency of Tando Mohammad Khan PS-53 on Saturday.
Waheeda Shah held a press conference with an alleged burqa-clad woman and showed that the matter has been settled down. But independent candidate from the same constituency Mushtaq Ali Talpur claimed that the woman shown in the conference was not the victimized woman.
It is pertinent to mention here that PPP candidate Waheeda Shah accused the polling agent of rigging and thrashed her in front of people.
The Provincial Election Commissioner has said that report in this regard has been received. All the records of the matter has been sought to investigate the issue, the EC said. He further added that, Secretary Election Commission would take final decision regarding Waheeda Shah’s future according to the investigative report.
Meanwhile, notices have been issued for official counting for two constituencies of PS-53 and PS-57 of Sindh Assembly.
Returning Officer would monitor counting in the constituency of Badin PS-57 on February 27 while conting for PS-57 would be held on February 28.

    IN a civilized country Waheeda Shah would be in jail by now. We need to ask ourselves: are we a a civilaized nation?

    If the people of Pakistan do not take a strong stand against waheeda shah for abusing a polling officer who also happens to be a teacher (one of the most respectful professions) the I would say that they deserve leaders like her. Just remember though, today its the teacher, tomorrow it could be a memebr of your family. Don't complain then.
    I would be equally disappointed in the press if they let this issue go. It would show me that they have no interest in maintaining the rule of law. They should make it a headline evey single day untill waheeda shah is declared disqualified. This one issue has implications bigger than any one realizes. Its the future course of the country.

    The reputation of Election Commision, Supreme Court, ppp leadership, police, media and other politicians hinges upon their reaction to this situation. Lets see who fails us and who truly has the courage to stand upto this kind of bullying.
    It will also show what kind of nation we are as a whole and wether we deserve what we have now or do we deserve better. Lets see who fullfills his duty and moral obligation.
