Poor thinking hinders relief work
The road to hell, it is said, is paved with good intentions. That is exactly what the Kashmiri victims of Saturday's earthquake seem to be experiencing after five days.
The massive relief effort coordinated in Pakistan - especially in the private sector - has choked the road network across Kashmir.
Pakistani federal ministers are also adding to the problem, as they hold up releif convoys, and and restrict movement in the areas they are visiting. This is not a time to garner political points.
