Our Woes and Foes

War on Terror in Pakistan

Is not this high time we, sincere Pakistanis, got our thinking straight… and decide where it all went wrong ?

1. We may have provided them with refuge, and a congenial breeding home ground for their life time settlement. With our traditions of being the greatest hosts, we may have supported our guests in getting them work and let them practice, the only thing, they knew… warfare.

2. May be we have been deceived by the long beards and the continuous recitation of the Holy verses of Qur’an , without even their knowing the meaning or true interpretation of the Words of Allah.

3. May be we forgot that our religion teaches us the most precious lessons of tolerance, peace and harmony. Although, we say “Salam” (Peace) as we meet anyone yet we found inspiration in those who were all up against this very word.

4. May be we were deceived by their anti-Christian, anti-Jews, anti-Hindus and anti-any-Non-Muslim attitude and found it very similar with what our religion teaches us.

5. May be we thought that having such uncontrolled warriors in our homeland, will be a source of security at our borders as we were not sure of our own army’s strength.

6. May be all that seemed right, at the time, when we decided to tread on the path of patronizing warfare in our tribal areas only while being our peaceful lives in urban centers unaffected.

BUT TILL WHEN…. will we not see the ground realities, the misery and grief, inflicted upon us , by the presence of our most “revered” and “protected” foreign guests?

NOW… the signs of the times insist that we should look back and think for a while.. what was not right in what we did.

1. We provided them a with a place for refuge for a temporary period… not for ever …and definitely not to practice and teach their gun battles skills on our land of the Pure, to our upcoming generations.

2. We took pride in giving respect to those long beards and their recitation of Holy Qur’an, although we had no dearth of true believers and practicing Muslims within our own people. Instead of understanding the words of Allah in the true sense, we mistook it, and believed and practiced how and what was interpreted by them.

3. We held these migrants from across the border in great esteem, while growing hatred and hostility toward our own residents, Sindhis, Pukhtoons, Muhajirs , Biharis, and many others who had been living here and had contributed a lot in the development of our country.

4. We failed to realize and still do so, that why our citizens would create havoc and easily carry out such bloody & barbaric massacres ?

5. We were blindfolded by the huge amounts of foreign aid to counter terrorism and tried to play games with international community, never knowing that they could easily find our “open secrets” and embarrass us in our face and leave us in ever more dangerous situation.

6. We are now witnesses to the barbaric acts of these reckless anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jews, anti-non-Muslims … as they apparently kill less of those and more of their fellow Muslims.

7. We now know that it was not about the preaching or promoting our religion or values… but a massive drama of creating terror, securing wealth, and finally establishing an undeclared parallel rule on the land.

When will we wake up? When will we stop sympathising with these foreign elements with a pre-set agenda? Are we waiting for them to reach our streets and doors and blow them up ?

Have we given up, lost all hope and choose to be their hostages?

Or do we have to resist and fight back?

Why should we have to suffer for big mistakes made by some selfish and irresponsible idiot government officials, who played with our nation’s image and destiny?

Think no more.. Things are very clear. Its time for action..

Stop supporting them, even morally…..

We deserve more help than them now.

Wake up Pakistan !!!

    Dear Brother, I’m not defending terrorists, rather I’m defending those
    muslims who are getting killed in those terrorist attacks.
    Bro, these terrorists are not muslims because a muslim fighting for Islam
    will never put a mask on his face. Only cowards, bandits and thiefs put a
    mask so that no one can recognize them when they commit a crime.
    These terrorists are prepared by CIA, America and Israel to destabilize
    Pakistan and media always portray that “Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan ne
    Zimmedari Qubool Kar li hai” :). These media guys have so much friends
    in this so-called TTP that after a few minutes of the attacks, they get the
    confirmation.

    it is very very obvious now that they want to denuclearize Pakistan… and
    our government is so nice that they have sold out Pakistan for the sake of
    filling their own accounts.

  2. @A Muslim
    i certainly dont agree with your comment. How can you defend these
    terrorists who have been killing innocent people all over the world?
    They have been trying to destabilize Pakistan for the past 10 odd years.
    Yes, media has played a pivotal role in giving a wrong perception about
    certain things but its obvious that these militants classify themselves as
    terrorists. How can we say that these terrorist are Muslims when they are
    constantly targeting innocent people. my view is that we flush out these
    militants for once and for all.

  3. I do not know whether these people whom u r calling ‘militants’ are terrorists
    or not but i do believe in one thing that fighting for Islam is not terrorism
    but it is Jihad. People have used Pakistan and Islam’s name for their own
    benefits and media has portrayed Islam and Muslims as the root of all such
    activities. I’m not taking militants’ side, I’m only saying that whoever these
    people are, they are enemies of Islam and Muslims. Allah is the best knower.

    We need to open our eyes and not just follow media and just do a little
    research then we will realize who actually is the real terrorist.

    Curse to those who have destroyed Islam and Muslims’ image.

    May Allah guide us all to the right path. The path of Islam Ameen.

  4. The image is so tragic and it is so clear what militant organizations have done to this country. It is vital that we unite and seek support from allies in thee war on terror and braek the back of all such terrorists.

  5. i totally agree with this post. its time we stand up and fight against these
    militants and join hands with the major powers of the world so that
    our jobs become easy in eliminating these terrorists.
