Some thoughts on the Shaheed General’s Car

A few thoughts.

1. A humble man, he had very little security. No motorcades for him.

2. The car is a Toyota Corrolla. Not sure what the “authorized” or “entitled” transport is for a three star general, but surely modest.

3. This appears to be an early picture – its the only one I saw with the flag and star plate still on it.

This murder, unlike the so many others we unfortunately see in Pakistan, struck me at a very personal level. Maybe because I had met the general. Or because he had operated on family. Or because his humility and piety were universally acknowledged. Rest in Peace Sir.
