Superstitious Zardari

I read a hilarious news report in today’s Dawn. The news report pronounces President Zardari’s superstition and the adopted measures to protect Mr. President from ‘black magic’ and evil eyes’. According to the news report, the measure taken to protect our dear President from black magic is an everyday slaughter of a ‘black’ goat. Sure, currently, our President is confronting some harsh criticism from political parties particularly PML-N, nevertheless, I really wonder if Zardari is really taking this criticism as ‘black magic’? But this news item really shows how progressive Mr Zardai is. Holy cow, if we made rough calculations then probably at least 600 goats have already been slaughtered so far.

    He is doing it not to avert any black magic. He is doing it to please God. We all do this kind of thing depending on our means. Don’t we? It is part of our culture and religion. Nevertheless it is a superstitious custom whether it is done to avert black magic or to please God for that matter.

    Whether the butcher is happy or not what good will that do to him? The butcher can’t protect his $$$$$$$$$$$ in Swiss banks?

    Sir, you seem to be differentiating between a religious belief and a superstition. There is no such difference between the two as far as KD is concerned.
