    It is hard to stop this kind of thing when the government who has control over the police and all other "security forces" are the ones actively encouraging this.

    If the Government fail to maintain law and order nothing can be expected other than jungle laws. I fear situation like in some lawless African countries will prevail in our beloved nation if there is no immediate change in Government policy and change of Government.
