Fear of the dark…

I am the man who walks alone…

Ok, my post isn’t about this song.

I did a post on Cinepax some time ago.

Yesterday night, I was getting bored and wanted to go see a movie in cinepax, but didn’t really go. Because one of the fear in my mind was what if some suicide attack takes place since it’s close to the residence of many Army men and lately there have been many such attacks on Armed forces personnels. The latest one was this one in Lahore.

Ok, suddenly I was taken back about fifteen to twenty years in the Islamabad of my childhood when we used to stay inside our houses at night but back then we had no place to go at nights to hang out. That was not an option because of unavailability of places, these days it’s because of fear.

It’s a shame, God help Islamabad.

God, help Pakistan.

Peace on you, Peace on me…Peace on Humanity…

P.S. I like the new look and feel of Islamabad metblogs. :D

    That is exactly what terrorists intend to do. They want to terrorize and scare. They want to keep people home. They want to force their values on the common man. Terrorist cannot see anyone enjoying life as they themselves have nothing to celebrate as per their pervert ideology. The suicide-bombers are a jealous lot. They are venting their frustration stemming from their own misery, their inadequacy, their failure to win over people to their narrow worldview, by resorting to utmost inhumane tactics, killing the innocent and targeting anyone who opposes their politics of violence.

    Stand up against terrorism to win our freedom back.

    I think current government has terrorize more than anyone earth by increasing prices of every thing. Recent addition in patrol has automatically increased prices of basic needs. Now people don’t have enough money to feed their kids, how can they even think about having some fun outside. So we have to fight this kind of terrorism as well.
