Is this My Pakistan?

It was a blissful thought since past few months when no explosions (major ones  and consecutive at least) were heard of. But not any longer. The war on innocents is back. Bloodshed begun. Its becoming harder day-by-day to think that its the same peaceful surroundings where I opened my eyes and lived through all these year.


The larger target in Islamabad was the security forces. But they (the unknown) are not ready to forgive the innocent either (children including) as seen in Karachi’s furious 7 blasts.


 What makes me even more furious is when our leaders and government officials come on-air, show their grievances by issuing petty statements as:

 “Mulziman ko kefar e kirdar tak pohnchaya jayega” .

“Hum in bomb dhamakon ki Muzamat kartay hain” .

Oh hello, we are here waiting for some POSITIVE RESULT-BEARING solutions to be implemented. So that a common Pakistani can feel secure and at peace. Sadly, a Pakistani has enough crises and economical burdens to worry about.

Omer on LMB has a story to tell of an expat who survived by fate in Islamabad’s Melody center bomb blast. Karachi Metblogs briefs on 7/7 and the 7 explosions :<

    hamari awam ko hua kya hai?
    it’s a warzone out there.. aur woh jo humlay kar rahein hai, woh humain pata hai.. lekin what can we do about it? they admit it smugly on tv etc.
    they’ve provoked people who were already jazbaati, ham sab eik dono ke dushman ho gaye hain.. aur woh door se chaa pee ke tamashay deh rahein hain..

    bozz.. itni afsos ki baat hai, it’s really upsetting news and you’re just
    bickering about the govt. the govt’s disabled, whoever got into power would’ve been the same, doesnt make a difference, cant do anything, it’s a puppet govt and the puppeteers are well-known.
    our people are the casualties. all we can do is pray for those that have lost their lives and for those of us still alive to remain safe, secure and sane.

    They are not "unknowns". We know them. Everyone does. If you do not get it here is a clue: the bombing coincided with the first anniversary of hundreds of hostage-takings by the Lal Masjid mullahs and the madrassa terrorists shootings at law enforcement and the destruction of public and private property.

    As long as we would keep on referring the Islamo-fascists as "unknowns", there won’t be a solution. We need to take the bull by horns and stand up to the murder in name of religion. But then standing up to religio-supremists will damage our (blind) religious faith.

    Khanum – Firstly I was not bickering but snickering. Big difference. And I say it once again, what you sow is what you reap.

    Really people are the casualty? hello – who did the casualty people vote in?

    Who is to blame? America? India? Afghans? Israel? Hidden hands? God?? Hey how about these same casualty people?

    Take your pick as long as you stay satisfied.

    @ sceptic:

    I am 100% in agreement with you that we need to re-evaluate our stance on blind dogmatic religion and its proponents.

    These bombers are not aliens from another planet but Pakistanis who live on our streets. Unless or Until education is proliferated across the masses, we will continue to spiral downwards into the depths of disillusionment. You and I can wade through the crap and make up our own minds since we are educated. What logic can we expect from millions who have no sense to distinguish between good or bad/ right or wrong.

    Sorry to paint such a grim picture but we really need to open our eyes and start questioning the fundamentals of our nation. What do we stand for – Freedom and equality or religious dogma and an insular mentality?

    No this is not my Pakistan, where no one has the moral courage to condemn any wrongdoing in the name of the religion. You can do anything in the name of religion and get away with it. This is not the Pakistan I know and not the Islam I grew up with. I wish some of these anchors would have the courage to call a spade a spade.

    Its has been a fashion now to spit all over religion and mullahs.

    Those who dont want to do any thing and getting money for spitting shit against religion do this mostly, in these days

    However, what is goin in tribal areas, with so many casualities by attacks of US army, they wont say any single word over it.

    Pakistan is heading towards disaster due to "Mush and anti-religious" policies. Did we ever say any single word abt it? Govt. says US planes comes by their permission. WOW! means these ppl are sold out and they will sell pakistan one day and we will keep blaming mullahs for this.

    Shame on U lamers. Shame on U!!
