In Pakistan today there is discontent, envy, hatred and animosity and all uncharitableness. All these have resulted in economic down fall and social chaos. This chaotic situation since long has been favorable to sectarian warlords. What makes people hate cannot be termed religion by any stretch of imagination. Religion is not the purveyor of detest. It does not aims at making man arrogant and full of bombast as are the fire eating sectarian bigwigs whose only past time is to excommunicate others from the fold of religion.
The root cause creating distress in Pakistan on the issue of sectarianism has been lying in the fact that Islam has been defined in an utmost ill way. There are contradictions galore among the idea and reality. The state and society both have been threatened by forces of darkness and retrogression, one of them being the votaries of sectarian hatred.
The deleterious effects of growing sectarian conflicts need to be seen in a larger perspective. The root of the problem has to be identified and requisite action taken. Unless this aspect of social menace is tackled with courage and wisdom, mere exhortations and administrative actions would be inadequate.
