Almost every fortnight, we get to read about a new episode of our parliamentarians' shenanigans. Cheating in exams, petty stealing, brawls on the House floor and other such outrages seem routine as far as our lawmakers and 'privileged' people are concerned. God save Pakistan if it is being ruled by such charlatans. The fake educational background of the nation's representatives has been a perennial source of concern for us, citizens. Seeing their present behaviour gives one the knots in the stomach. -AMJAD HABIB MIRZA, Lahore, via e-mail, July 14.
