Here comes the month of Independence

iI' Day celebrations

August was always a month of joy and spirits … I fully hope that it shall remain so NOW too for us and our generations to come.

This mid of august shall see a 60-year old Pakistan, inshah Allah … conventions will be held, rallies would be arranged in every nook and corner BUT can we erase the scare off our hearts knowing that someone around us can pull off one pin killing us all??

Can we go and see the fireworks like we used to do years back – not that the fireworks done here were some masterpiece (they are not like the ones we see on new year eves around the globe) – they were just the same old desi fireworks BUT in itself it was an exuberant thing we all cherished in our city.

Like this picture depicts a paratrooping exercise on an Independence Day of Pakistan … making a heart to exhibit Love for Pakistan … I’m confused should I see despair in this picture or should it be hope for better future??

    Fireworks, celebrations, conventions, rallies etc etc I can’t believe I’m reading this!!!!!!!!

    What about our Pakistani brothers and sisters who still have no shelter since the time of the earthquake? What about all those displaced and made homeless by the recent rains and floods? What about the families of those who come to clean our houses each day, do they have daughters that are struggling to get married due to financial constraints? Or do they have kids who need funds to pay for school fees or ill ones who need medication?

    I would advise all Pakistani’s to donate generously to all these causes rather than wasting their money on celebrating this event.

    It is a damning indictment on our nation that we can even begin to think of spending money such an occassion with the amount of suffering and heartache in our own backyard!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

    REMEMBER THAT WE WILL BE QUESTIONED ABOUT EVERY DHIRAM WE SPEND WHEN WE STAND BEFORE ALLAH SUBHANAHU’TA’ALLAH ON THAT FINAL DAY!
