That’s the headline of a story today by PTI. A Karachi schoolteacher leading a discussion about the emergency reports that her students believe that only Harry Potter can save their country.
From the article:
“Though the students could not find a Harry Potter in Pakistan, sacked Supreme Court Justice Iftikhar Chowdhury came closest to being the wizard, and the protesing lawyers were seen as Potter’s friends.
The students, who were also aware of the ban on private TV news channels, thought state-run PTV was like ‘Daily Prophet’, the wizardry newspaper. The banned channels were compared to ‘The Quibbler’ the newspaper that defied Voldermort’s diktats and was eventually shut down following the kidnapping of the editor’s daughter.
