“I am the home minister of Pakistan,” Rehman Malik to the traffic policeman on the street of New York, who looked at him contemptuously and handed over the challan ticket to the driver and Rehman Malik had to walk twenty minutes to the hotel, where Asif Ali Zardari was residing.
New Yorkers must have been shocked at such introduction as they know that their senators and public representatives make every effort to hide their identities when they are caught publicly in such crimes, however petty it is, and here there was a minister who wasn’t recognized by the policeman.
But Rehman Malik should have done what Americans do in Islamabad.
In Islamabad, there have been occurrance where the the Americans have pointed weapons at the traffic wardersn and have beaten and threatened the policemen. Rehman Malik should have called name to that traffic controller, then should have slapped him, and then threatened him with transfer to Wahoo, Nebraska.
