Killing of two brothers Mughees and Muneeb by mob in Sailkot , case decided

 In a landmark decision, an anti-terrorism court today handed down four times death punishment to seven accused and life imprisonment to six others in Sialkot case in which two brothers Mughees and Muneeb were brutally murdered  by the mob  in full public view in August last year.
Ten policemen, including DPO Waqar Chohan, were also awarded 3 years in jail.
The court has dispensed justice and fulfilled the hopes of the people that no one is above the law and no body has authority to take law in his own hands. The accused have always right to defend themselves and no body has the authority to take this right from them and everybody is innocent unless proven otherwise. 
It was a case of gross negligence on the part of police to discharge its duty to protect the lives of the people and secondly police did not even register the FIR of the deceased at first and the apex court had to intervene by a suo moto notice that the case was registered.
The decision has put the confidence in the whole nation that this is a new Pakistan where it is no more easy to snatch the rights from the poor and the weak and that we have a very vibrant and free judiciary that can come forward to protect the rights of the people where state will fail to fulfill its obligation.
Media is specially appreciatable that it is playing a very positive role for the rights of the people especially the deprived ones.
