They have banned the medium, effectively ‘shooting the messenger’.
It is like protesting against Geo TV for telling us that the government has raised fuel prices. Need more be said?
If you are in a position that the government official(s) are in now, what would you have done? And more importantly, how many decisions you make in your life that reflect this mentality of blaming the messenger? Ever ridiculed the servant serving you sour milk?
I call this ‘jumping to conclusions’ rather than ‘arriving’ at them. You may call it stupidity.
