Farhat Haq Weighs in on the Emergency

As I mentioned earlier on this blog, an FIR [1] was recently lodged against Farhat Haq, a professor of political science at Monmouth College, Illinois. She has been charged with "writing inappropriate things about the government" with chalk on a wall in Lahore. Had the government actually checked before issuing the FIR, they might have noticed that Haq was actually in Illinois at the time of the alleged misdemeanour. Haq wrote an article about this in Dawn and it's been posted on The Emergency Times blog.

[1] FIR = First Investigation Report. Basically, the first step in a police investigation since this officially opens a police investigation.
