This just in : A nine-month-old child was booked by Lahore police for the alleged attempted murder of a police officer and was even presented before a session judge’s court on Thursday.
The ‘accused’ was granted an interim bail after he appeared in Judge Rafaqat Ali’s court with his grandfather, Muhammad Yaseen. However, the infant started crying in the court when his grandfather held his thumb to dip it in ink and put its print on the bail bonds – since the tot could not sign it himself. According to the FIR, the baby, along with his uncles and grandfather, attacked the police officers, bailiff team and some Sui gas employees with wooden rods and pelted them with stones. While the infant was being formally charged during Thursday’s hearing, he was busy suckling on his pacifier.
A police team along with a bailiff and some Sui gas employees raided Muhalla Thanedaran to sever gas connections of houses that had not paid their dues, the FIR reads. Muhammad Yaseen, his sons Irfan and Imran as well as Imran’s son, first pelted stones at them and then attacked them with wooden clubs, causing the police team and Sui gas employees to run for their lives. ASI Kashif, the complainant, said the accused caught him and beat him up, giving him a head injury. They also threatened to kill him, he claimed in the FIR. Police lodged the FIR against all of Muhammad Yaseen’s family members, which unilaterally also included Imran’s son. But they did not bother to find out that Imran only has one child, his nine-month-old son, whom Yaseen then brought to court for the hearing. “He was nominated in the FIR so I took the child to court,” he told The Express Tribune.
9 month old baby. 9 months – not 9 years old, not 19, not 29 not even fucking 90 years but a 9 month old baby was charged by the police because in the fucking FIR the plaintiff claims that it was “all of Muhammad Yaseen’s family members” and since Imran had only one son, he was automatically charged as well and brought to the court for the hearing. Police were quick enough to shift the blame on the plaintiff of the FIR, ASI Kashif, saying they did not know that one of the accused was a child. Taking action, DIG Operations Rana Abdul Jabbar has ordered the suspension of ASI Kashif for lodging an FIR against an infant, but the move was taken only after the nine-month-old ‘suspect’ got bail from the judge.
How stupid can you guys be? Common sense should have prevailed but these morons had that missing!
It makes me crazy when people wear their shoes in my house. What habit/act drives you crazy? How do you prevent it from happening?
The crazy habit or act which drives me crazy, well one of them atleast, is unsolicited advice giving by certain people. Once or twice it is fine and I guess everybody does give out advice at random even if they don’t really have any credibility in doing so. But when they give out the same bullshit unsolicited advice over & over again despite you trying to politely change the subject and give them hints that you are not interested in listening any further on the subject they still persist, that is begging for a rebuke!
I also notice that most people who regularly give out unsolicited advice are not only not perfect but they have plenty of problems & issues themselves. However it is this sense of superiority and sense of looking at you as someone who is so lost and in need of guidance that makes them pollute the air so much. And I’m not saying that some of those people or even the advice is not well intentioned but when they fill your ears with bullshit advice that starts to grind my gears after a while.
So stop dolling out the advice my friends or be prepared to get a earful in return. Which they can’t take much of in return! No thanks Mr. Perfect!

Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.
Mine is back windows since I live on the 7th floor of an apartment building. I see the road that is perpendicular to the main road, the ones that leads towards our building. It is rarely busy or crowded as it is mostly a residential area with small shops, stores and rather small eateries & tea shops as businesses. I see the 3 tea shops and if I strain my head I can see the grocery store and a novelty shop next to it. I can also see a photo studio, a small store that sells shirts and tshirts and a tiny stall that sells little snacks & lemonade.
I see another bigger, more posher apartment building which I wish we lived in instead of this one. I see the cars coming in through the gate as the day starts to drift into the evening and people come in from work. I see kids playing in the play area or riding their bikes in allocated spots. I see two dogs, belonging to my neighbour, drinking what looks like milk from their bowls and wagging their tails as a young girl of maybe 12-13 watched them having just poured the milk in their bowls. I see the filthy rich neighbour’s family members sitting in the front verandha and talking to each other, moving their hands animatedly.
I see a couple of day labourers walking back tired from the day’s work and one of them is reading a newspaper as he talks to his friend. I see two cars starting and leaving from their parked spot near the two day labourers are walking towards. And I see the last strands of sunlight fade away to darkness as the nighttime falls.

Haunter is a 2013 Canadian horror/supernatural flick directed by Vicenzo Natali and starring a teenage Abigail Breslin, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Stephen McHattie & David Hewlett. It was produced by Copperheart Entertainment and written by Brian King.
Lisa Johnson is the only one in her family of four who seems to be aware that the Johnson family is reliving the same day over & over again. It is a Sunday in the late 1980s, the day before Lisa is to turn 16. She is woken up by her younger brother Robbie who calls her down to play video games with him but she puts her earphones on and is asked to start the laundry by her mother Carol. Lisa goes to put the clothes in and is scared by a noise and she comes back up. The food is the same – pancakes for breakfast, mac n cheese for lunch and meatloaf followed by ice cream for dinner after which the family sits and watches that week’s episode of Murder She Wrote. She goes to bed and wakes up and the same day starts all over again. Robbie seems to have an imaginary friend named Edgar who could be key to some of the things happening. She sees glimpses of a figure behind her and tries to contact spirits using an ouija board but she is shocked to find out that the being she has contacted is alive!
So it becomes obvious to her; she & her family died that day and are stuck, repeating the day over and over again. She finds a small door leading to an underground cave/tunnel in her basement and find objects that belonged to young girls who were murdered before her. Lisa also finds belongings of Olivia (Eleanor Zichy) and the two connect. Olivia is a future family’s daughter living in the house, whose family will be the next set of victims. Lisa, with both the help of others and being transported into the timeline of other victims within the same house, unravels the mystery of what is going on in her family and in her house. Her father had killed the family and himself when he was possessed by the evil spirit of Edgar Mullins, a real life killer who murder young girls. He continues the pattern, possessing father’s of young girls he targets and while possessed the father kills the daughter and the rest of the family by suffocating them with carbon monoxide in the garage. During this time the family is “awakened” or comes to terms with the knowledge that they are dead and are able to assist. After Lisa’s family awakens to the truth and flees to the light, Lisa stays behind to stop the ongoing deaths and the evil spirit of Edgar haunting the house with the help of Olivia and the spirits of other girls who were murder victims.
Along with the evil spirit’s original family, who were also victims killed in the house, Lisa manages to overcome the evil spirit who subjected her to the curse and helps save another family, Olivia’s from suffering the same fate. After breaking the cycle of possession and murder-suicides, and Olivia’s father is no longer possessed, Lisa wakes up, no longer reliving the same day. It is now her birthday in the spirit realm and she is able to make the world appear as the way she wants it and after receiving a gift from her family she goes out of the house to explore.
The film is a bit confusing and lacks a coherent storyline or perhaps just needed better direction from Natali. I really thought that the movie had potential to be much better. Still a 7 outta 10 but it is dragging in places.
If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why?
If I could return to the past I’d want to go back to being a young kid again. Just to experience the simplest joys of life all over again. Watching cartoons, amazement at so many new things, walking on the beach for the first time and the first time I get soaked as a wave crashes all over me. Eating ice cream and chocolate as a kid was pretty special and if you had a big scoopful of your favourite ice cream right in front of you, there wasn’t a care in the world that could bring you down from that high. Watching my favourite tv shows of that era once again, simple stuff that usually we find to be cheesy as we grow older but man was it so much fun when we were young.
Playing football, 7 tiles, hide n seek, etc with my friends growing up was so much joy. Can I relive those moments once again. Board games, video games – stuff that is considered so old school now but really people don’t know what they are missing. Laughing at the silliest things because at that age you find them funny. That’s the age of innocence. And also for the main reason that I’d want to go back and start afresh at an early part of my life – I want a second chance to do things differently, to correct many wrongs and get things to be much better than they are now and have been. I want to do things over and make the right choices and work harder.
I know it is impossible to really go back and do things over but I can’t help but wish for it.
