Karachi Kops

World levels of corruption should well and truly make us stand up and voice protest, but here in Karachi, people just take it in their stride. Just the other day, a police official stopped our car and asked for 50 rupees to allow us to proceed along a shabby road that he was "monitoring". How does the ordinary person stop corruption when we are held to ransom like this?

*Karachi Kops, incidently was a programme on British television some years ago, based on the goings on of the Gulshan-e-Iqbal police force - Gulshan-e-Iqbal is right where I am right now.
