GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS!
As I sat down and ponder as to how and why things became like this I can only but wonder who is really guilty? I just realized we all are as we the people have the power within us to destroy the present philosophy that we are puppets in the greatest revenge of all times that this nation has witnessed… I guess convenient Democracy is just another name for terrorism. And like you who are reading this I too am guilty for allowing it to happen. We have been subconsciously allowed ourselves to be imprisoned by those who run around destroying all that matters to us. All we do is complain on twitter and Facebook and if someone actually starts a “fashionable dharna” in a location where it will not matter we run to applaud it.
If you want to stage a protest then why not do it where it will hurt those who are enjoying watching us squirm atop a hill in a palace with a beverage in one hand and a ten thousand rupee cigar. Why not make them feel that the nation which survives on the 80 / 20 rule where us the burgers or the elite who contribute to about 80% of the country’s economy are always being kidnapped or held up along with the masses.
Do we have the guts to gang up at the CM House or form a mob outside the governor house? Do we have it in us to drive up bath island and stand in front of IG house with all our goons and demand one thing which is either those idiots who we have empowered WILL do their jobs (no choices given) or we WILL deal with them and their families who are safe behind the protection that we pay for?
Why are we blocking roads that are deserted and why on earth are we making a noise where there is no audience? Why don’t we take accountability of the fact that we feel that we absolve ourselves of any form of guilt because we are too used to playing the part of victims in the modern day comic tragedy. I would like to state that rather than washing away guilt in the comfort of those with social agendas we need to plan and organize a serious call for a reality check. We are repeatedly told that Democracy is the best revenge but oddly enough have we ever questioned “revenge upon who and why?”
If you we want to wash away our sins and claim that we are a truly independent nation then we need to take charge now and stop barking in dead alleys. If we truly believe that there is no form of sectarian violence and that we as Shia’s and Sunni’s are one then we should clearly show it. Standing on an empty road and screaming Labaik Ya Hussain! Or trying to relate everything with Karbala and victimization will not do because those who are supposed to listen are too busy recovering from a hangover today after last night’s bash in Clifton.
I cannot do it alone and nor can you alone but what everyone can do is organize and become TUQ’s in our own rights and pinch those who we pay to abuse us where it hurts. Irrespective of what has happened with TUQ he did manage to stir up a hornets nest and bring them into a shoebox to talk to him. We the people have so much power and I wish we would organize it and use all our resources wisely and rather than doing what’s in fashion do what is right! Let’s believe in ourselves and stop trying to wash away guilt which is senseless… It’s time to hit back where it hurts to those who we want to listen to us. As a country we can drag those guys down to our level and really let them feel the power of the people…
Please stand up and unite somewhere where it means something!

CONVENIENTLY SURVIVING PAKISTAN
Seems like the wild-west in this country as its population are not citizens rather “Survivors”. Every day as one wakes up in Pakistan I’m sure that subconsciously they say a prayer to survive the day and make it back home. Life is unexpected here in this country and people who know how to live from moment to moment and are able to adapt to all the excitement caused by bomb blasts and kidnapping are very lucky!
Seems that every Pakistani is aware of the fact that government vehicles are being used to chase and abduct women as well as kidnap people from shopping malls, and that “waderas” kids run around with a bunch of hired goons killing people aimlessly just to prove that because daddy is something they can. There is a constant threat to security and mobile phone snatchings are a common story of the day. On one hand the country is out of resources and the price of fuel cannot be decided so half the petrol pumps are shut, whereas on the other hand politicians have choked up Clifton in Karachi to celebrate the engagement of one of their own and amidst black labels and sushi they are celebrating and have used up all the law enforcement resources to protect themselves for God only knows what when the law and order situation is at its worst.
The elections are supposed to be around the corner and everyone is busy with chasing down the press and government bodies with their own agendas which include verification of fudged college and inter degrees. The press is at its best because so much is happening that it has its hands full and often stories with the most amounts of gore and disgust are shown as breaking news. Bottom line – if there is peace and quiet for a day we think the Gods must be crazy… All we choose to do is fashionably join in a dharna and chant “Labaik Ya Hussain” and scream to be recognized as victims of sectarian injustice. Don’t even think of mocking me about the last sentence because I am also a Shia.
We all recognize and scream that terrorism has no religion yet we choose not to do anything about it. Why don’t people realize that they have so much power in them and take a stand about what they believe in? Everyone loves to bitch and moan about the fact that they have less working days and that it is “oh so hard to survive” in this country, then why don’t we as a nation stand up and take charge. It seems that we have been receiving revenge for the past five years and are swallowing the fact that we will bear witness to another five years of insanity. People only talk about running away to Canada or anyplace that will accept them but no one wants to take responsibility for fixing the problems here. When it comes time to vote every average yuppie will tell you that they just don’t bother, yet will blame the country and not their own ignorance when the situation does not change.
If you want change then stop bitching about it and go out there and hold those people accountable that you have put in charge. After all you are paying their salaries and you are paying for the green plated vigos and land cruisers that are abducting, raping, molesting and violating your civil rights. Why is the nation so scared to take matters into its own hands? Hang a few of these guys and set an example that the society will not tolerate it any more. What we are facing is a twisted form of social Karo Kari and it is affecting us all. Everyone, of us wants to go to heaven but not one of us has the convictions to die for it. Everyone wants the seventy two virgins only they want it here on earth…
