What we never learned
While I was working nearby my wife was on the phone with her mother and the topic was the Minar e Pakistan incident.
The sheer outrage and fear in that conversation hit me hard and is perhaps what's on the minds of every thinking human being left in Pakistan.
No amount of analyzing can hide the fact that this is it, these times we live in are the rock bottom we all feared we were headed towards, there is no more going down from here.
No amount of sugar coating can hide the fact that this is a nation of worst creatures ever to roam the earth, I find no words that can actually describe the depravity of soul and the loss of the very last shreds of human decency, this mob is an insult to the word humanity.
What a loss, what a shame, to those who still believe these incidents to be isolated, how mistaken you are!
When will you realize that this is the reality of this country. These people are the majority, the mob is the law. There is no enlightened silent majority that will wake up and save the day. There never was. There never will be.
As I write this I feel the anguish of all the shattered hopes and dreams, as if one sees one's mother drenched in blood, motherland we call this land, but we have spared not an inch of her body where we haven't wounded her, robbed her, plundered her, yet she still shelters us.
The tragedy of it all is that they destroyed the youth of this country, look at their faces in the mob with no remorse, with no semblance of any recognition of what they are doing. When you breed hatred, teach intolerance and preach decadence, what can you expect.
Those sitting at the reigns of power, take heed for this is what will destroy you and everything else from within. These incidents will keep happening, and so as the selective and temporary outrage until there is no-one left.
