Moving on from pensions to the antediluvian practice of karo-kiri, the misery and suffering of Shaista Almani of Ghotki continues.After being threatened by her tribal feudals with a sentence of death for having married a man of her choosing against their wishes, having to flee to Islamabad, being disowned by her relatives and dumped by her husband, she sought final refuge in Karachi where the law enforcement agencies were ordered to ensure that she was kept alive.She was housed initially in a hospital and then sent to a women's police station.On January 11, she was handed over by the police into the 'custody' of Sindh's minister for population welfare, Imtiaz Sheikh (once upon a time Jam Sadiq Ali's chief henchman), who was photographed handing over to her, with his blessings, the keys of a flat and papers appointing her as a Grade 9 officer in the Sindh Welfare Department.
On January 16, British citizen Altaf Bhai of London self-exiled leader of the MQM, entered the fray.He 'threatened' to abandon the government and annul his political alliance with the ruling clique, unless the tribal feudals who seek Shaista's blood were arrested within 48 hours.
