Lahore Bleeds … Pakistan Bleeds

FIA building in Lahore Islamabad is equally sad at the suicide bombings and turbulent unrest in Lahore today. Lahore is the heart of Pakistan and at its bleeding … I’ve no words to express my sorrow …!

May Allah bless the souls who had to leave the world this way … and the many (150+ today) be brave enough to cope with life from this day onwards.

At the same time when I’m beaten at this … least to mention the usual outcries.

Where’s the war on terror?

    I ask people of Pakistan to ask Atzaz Hasan to stop playing with emotions of the people of Pakistan. He should have long marches against extremists. This is the most important issue Pakistan faces today. But Atzaz Hasan got paid for only Lawyers movement?

    Atzaz Hasan who is playing with the emotions of the people of Pakistan Thanks Media for supporting Lawyers Movement.Now ask the people of Pakistan that Lawyers movement is Pakistan’s top priority or the terrorism by extremists? You tell me here is the list of events since 2006 they are only increasing. Our Free Media in corrupt Pakistan is busy making happy Asif zardari and Nawaz Sharif who many belive has been funding Lawyers Movement. Don’t we need Long March on extremism not on lawyers movement let the new government take care of that. I do not want media to reply me by saying this started in Musharraf’s time. Yes I know that but what have you done to stop terrorism in Pakistan?

    sorry to spoil your mood but your rant is very baised. Karachi has been bleeding for decades but never said that ‘Karachi bleeds-Pakistan’, maybe because it’s not "heart" of Pakistan despite of it feeds entire Pakistan. I would feel pain even if some village in Pakistan suffers like that.

    kindly refrain from such statements in future. I know you have not made it intentionally but it’s a serious requirement to come out of this ‘lore lore aye’ type thingie and think nation wide since you are a blogger rather just another citizen.

    discuss the real issues this is been problem for Pakistan we start our own fights and we forget the real issues. Terrorism is the issue need most attention.


  7. riaz on March 12th, 2008 @ 10:23 am

    rizwan u r making me sick with ur comments.u know y taliban are creeping everwyhere? and u know what logic they put forward in defence of their acts? they have taken over in parts of the country because the govt failed to provide law and order, justice and above all jobs to the ppl in those areas.go to any village in nwfp and ask annyone what will he do if some wrong is done to him.no body is going to tell u that they will go to police or look for govt help.they will say that they r going to approach local taliban for remedy.and thats the reason they have bases everywhere.they can strike anywhere ,anytime they want.they provide security to the local ppl and in return get shelter.
    now lets come to the logic they normally put forward when confronted with the question abt rule of govt.they say that if an FA pass fauji can go and take over the country ,then y not us? whats the diff b/w them n us.we r middle and matric , FA pass too.Fauji takes over the country by force of his gun, so here we r.with our guns.lets compete.if its ok for army to capture this country, then y not us?
    These are something which i know thru first hand experience by living in those areas.
    Once I had read on this blog during Lal Masjid crisis that suicide attacks occur in NWFP bcoz there are too many madressas there n Punjab, especially Lahore is safe coz there are very few here. I had argued at that time, that this has nothing to do with madressah per capita (as one blogger had put it).its a fire thats going to engulf all of us.dont think that since u r in Lahore, u r safe. U R NOT.Its sad that the last few weeks have proved my point.


  8. Adnan Siddiqi (adnansiddiqi) on March 12th, 2008 @ 12:39 pm

    it would be pretty ignorant and lame to blame Pakistani Talibans only and not Musharraf. The current situation of Pakistan is due to tussle between left wing fascist Musharraf and right wing extremists Pakistani Taliban. What are they doing is the reaction of what Musharraf does in their area. Now considering Musharraf as an angel just because he’s prince of dreams of few people doesn’t mean ground reality is being accepted. Neither Musharraf is willing to quit seat so are his enemies. What are Mushs’ enemies are not our enemies since we never took tussle with them. Mush always tried to hide himself behind Pakistanis.

    If Mush thinks he is so dignified and glorious person then why teh heck he doesn’t leave the seat and allow we majority of Pakistanis to lead a sane life. If Mush has balls then he should go himself and deal with those guys rather making our life miserable.


  9. rizwan on March 12th, 2008 @ 6:31 pm

    it is shamful for us as a nation that we have again elected the parties whose leaders are known liars,looters and absconders (who left the country on their own choice) while these so called leaders have not even contested the election, but demanding for a resignation of elected president who served the country and completed lot of projects after a long time once a remarkable development achieved during late Field Marshal Ayoub Khan. Mr. Mushraf has given the nation good vision for further progress and to take the country on its high esteem. He has a vision to combate with the shortage of electricity, infrastructure and for poverty allivation. Many projects are under way and some of them have already been completed. He is a leader of words who fulfilled all his promises. It will indeed be bad luck of nation, if we have been deprived of his great leadership. His slogan is Pakistan First and he proved it that he means it and which is evident from his steps he took last year reluctantly in the best interest of country and democracy despite that he knows and we all know that these steps marred his good and highly esteemed image. He received condemnations from within and outside the countries, but he did whatever was in the best interest of nation without caring himself. In election there is very low turn out maximum 35 to 40%, but if there is a referendum for getting the veridct of people whether they want democracy, I am sure there will be 100% turn out in favour of "NO" since nation is being made fool and looted in the name of democracy since 1947. I strongly believe common man of my country has no concern whether any General is in power or so called democratic leaders who are already palaying in wealth and living in luxurious lives, they do have concern with haveing low cost of living, peace, security, employment and other basic needs. Common man is not dying for democracy. These are our politicians who always cary for democracy. Since 1947, Pakistan and Islam are in danger, they always shout these slogans from time to time, but in fact Pakistan and Islam is in danger because of these corrupt politicans.


  10. rizwan on March 12th, 2008 @ 9:05 pm

    Atzaz Hasan says unless Musharraf leaves there will be no Peace in Pakistan. I think Atzaz Hasan is cancer to Pakistan. In other way he is say that he controls the peace of Pakistan. All the suicide bombings will stop if Musharraf leaves? Then Put Atzaz Hasan in Jail. This will stop all the bombings.


  11. rizwan on March 13th, 2008 @ 12:00 am

    I feel for the people of Pakistan , I really do because they have been over and over used by these politicians. Its our tragedy that Pakistan never gave a birth to any credible politician. Here we are today people have no sense of direction and they have lost home but they are just giving a chance to who ever is imposed upon them as a candidate. What else these people can do? I have seen Indians in USA how their self esteem shot up in last few years. And I am happy for them. When Country does better it shows on the faces of people . Our people are so desperate for change they forget they are bring the old thief back,that is beside the point that Zardari has been acting proper showing some good signs. But this also shows the state of the mind of the people in Pakistan. Now to understand Musharraf may be one is required more inteligence or simply one should trust on Musharraf because he is the product of Pakistan Army and he will never think bad of Pakistan.
    To run a country under tremendous pressure and at the same time staying honest will never work. Allah will judge us from our intentions not our deeds. Yes Musharraf may have had made mistakes but no one was willing to sit with Musharraf accept Chouhdries and MQM. Up till now Nawaz Sharif is worried about his own grudges not Pakistan. Musharraf simply worked hard to bring Pakistan to its feet and he would not let these politicians discredit him. Musharraf defiantly has a choice like politicians take the money and run from Pakistan. Ever wonder why he rather die but will not run with the money which is belongs to the people of Pakistan.

    This is called true honesty knowing people have turned against but doing the right thing. Where politicians do not worry about doing right thing but they do what makes people happy. And when the hard time comes they leave country.
    Our country has nothing to offer. We rather fold and hand our country to other country than giving the control to well known X Looters. OR we work on foundation of Pakistan and that is a hard way to success. This includes tough decisions. Army is the only credible institute Pakistan has.They know better about the security of Pakistan. If Musharraf was so wrong why 9 commanders under him did not take him out?
    Because all these guys understand the security of Pakistan better than anyone.
    We people of Pakistan who voted for Zardari , Imagine for a minute these are the people are against Musharraf ? Does this tell you something? Although Zardari is acting much decent than Nawaz Sharif. At least he has learned from his mistakes. Same goes for MQM. Or may be Zardari is acting normal as he wants his son to be the next leader of Pakistan.
    I have been crying on this board i am sure the owner of this board can tell you that I have been saying unite for terrorism and against extremism.
    Today people like Atzaz Hasan and CJ are playing with the emotions of the people of Pakistan but have not given one statement against terrorism which has crippled our country.
    Who knows they are loving all these bombings as they are blinded with the hate of Musharraf rest they do not care.
    I loved this post on other board:

    Folks, stay with Mr Musharaf and you would be fine. I do understand that he has made mistakes in the past and he would learn from his mistakes but he would not let Pakistan go into wrong hands aka Mr Nawaz Sharif.

    My jury is still out on Mr Zardari, Mr Aitezaz Ahsan and Mr Makhdoom Amin.
    Stay put and we will see how things plays out.
    Allah bless Pakistan.
    I agree 100 %

    our people are dying and some of you are starting Karachi Lahore tussle here. Our media is already too busy to show what chaudhry iftikhar is driving and what is the color of aitzaz’s tie while innoncent are being killed. Shame…


  13. rizwan on March 13th, 2008 @ 4:54 am

    I am very sure this image is very emotionally disturbing. This is what our newspapers , TV Media and politicians are expert off , They know how to play with emotion of people. But what media and every body need to do is humiliate these extremists 24/7. This might help decrease in the images of babies like the one you saw on the Jung Newspaper.

    Now after the Lahore blast we heard slogans against Musharraf. This is exactly extremists wanted and we gave it to them. They want to throw Musharraf out. These anti Musharraf slogans will motivate these extremists even more.

    Pakistani people were more wise at the time Pakistan took birth, they had more class in their life. What has happened to us we have no tolerance and we have lost all of our wisdom? I beg free media if you are true Pakistani bring back the love for Pakistan in the hearts of the people of Pakistan by running unity poems and unity talk shows. This is the only hope we have. We need to wake up and smell the coffee , The world is gone far ahead we are still doing nothing but hurting our own country by not promoting patriotism.
    We need poems,peaches,talk shows any and everything on Patriotism. We need people like Tariq Aziz to come and wake up our sleeping souls for Pakistan. We must awake up now. Please enough of sleep already time to get going and show the love for Pakistan. This will make the difference I promise. Free Media and Free Press show the love for Pakistan.

    Screw Atzaz Hasan and CJ , What for them we will drown our country. And Nawaz Sharif you have disappointed us the most. You are the idiot of Pakistan. I thank You Zardari and MQM for acting in good manners.Credit should be given where it is well deserved even if we do not like their past. This is the unity we need.

    Well I kind of Agree with Rizwan Sahib,
    But I we cant Screw MQM or CJ,
    here are my thoughts,
    When you bleeds I feel pain,
    When I am in pain you should feel it the same way,
    When Lohore or any other city have these kind of blasts we all should feel pain !!

    Lets get those people who are trying to create fight in between us.
    I think India is involved in these kind of blasts, first they send info to our police or FIA that 4 boys are ready to do blasts and they are coming from WANA or Wazirstan or other places, later on they make this happend BLASTS.

    The main idea is to create a fight between us.

    Our country is under attack and Atzaz is worried about CJ. If he truly loves Pakistan then rather than playing with the emotions of Pakistani people he should use his energy against suicide bombings , this might save many people’s life and decrease worry faces we see every where in Pakistan.
    People like Atzaz are cancer to our society as they know they can play with people’s emotions with strong speeches.Would be nice if these speeches are use to humiliating extremists and calming them down resulting in slow down in bombings.
    Atzaz should be placed in house arrest ASAP.
