Today: Suicide Blast in Adezai near Peshawar kills 37, injures 52.

Yesterday: A car bomb in Faisalabad kills 25, injures 125.

The Taliban, in both cases, take “credit” for murder and mayhem.

What is there is to add? Pakistanis cry. Pakistanis die.

Our tears have no value. Our pain has no standing. Our words have no meaning. The absurdity that we live has no limits. Jo marra woh bhi shaheed. Jiss nay maara woh bhi shaheed.

Tomorrow: More Pakistanis will die. Tomorrow more Pakistanis will cry. But, tomorrow is another day!

Meray Shehr jal rahey haiN, Meray Loug mar rahey haiN
Hum he Qatl ho rahey haiN, hum he Qatl kar rahey haiN

    so much has been written, said, and blogged about on this issue. as you justifiably ask:’what is there to add”? words of condemnation and outrage have become utterly meaningless.

    i pray for the victims and their bereaved families, but there is no way that the killers are also shaheed. they are beasts, beasts, and beasts; nothing less.

    the ultimate blame and responsibility for this clearly lies with all the intelligence agencies (civil as well as military), the national security planners, and the ghq. there is no point in making speeches of condemnation, even protesting on the streets.

    what is really needed is a massive long march to, and unrelenting stoning of, the ghq headquarters.

    woe unto the nation whose establishment is willing to let the citizens be mowed down on the streets like dogs.

    Who will your Tahrir square be against? There is no dictator here. There is only us. WE are the bad guys! WE are the enemy.

    Systems of government only exist as long as they provide a net benefit to those they govern. It appears to me that Pakistan’s various experiments in governance, whether martial law or a bastardized version of electoral democracy, have failed. The present system is not working for Pakistanis or for Pakistan – something has got to give. Countries that fail don’t wither away and die, they continue to exist and people continue to live in them. They just organize themselves in ways that are not inline with prior national identities. In an environment where government cannot provide the basics of life, the role of civil society organizations and philanthropic organizations becomes even more important as they have to take on responsibilities that the state should be expected to fulfill.

    Thank God no one is saying, ‘Khas Kum Jahan Paak’ (it is good garbage is less and world is clean) after murder of Muslims in mosques. When Qadianis were killed in May 2010 in their mosques many people in streets of Pakistan said ‘Khas Kum Jahan Paak’.

    Personal Disclosure:
    I hold belief that:
    1-There is no God but Allah (SWT) and Muhammad (SAWS) WAS HIS LAST AND GREATEST PROPHET.
    2-No new or old prophet can come after Rasul Allah SAWS.
    3-I consider all reciters of Kalima-Shahada as Muslims.
    4-I do NOT belong to Qadiani organization headed by their Khalifa residing in England, that holds belief that thousands of prophets can come after Rasul Allah SAWS (nauzubilah), but they will only come in their Qadiani organization.

    No real Muslim can perpetrate such mindless violence on other Muslims. All Muslims are part of the same ummah. How can then they kill each other? It is the enemies of Pakistan and Islam who are behind these killings. They are capable of doing this and they have done it earlier also (remember 1971). Real Muslims should not get trapped by the evil design of anti-Pakistan, anti-Islam forces. Pakistan zindabad! Alla-hu-Akbar!!

  12. absolutely says:
    March 10th, 2011 4:25 pm

    Well said Maqbool.

    But why stop with 1971? Remember 4 April 1979? When Muslim Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was hanged by anti-Islamic forces? It is but fitting that the same anti-Islamic forces who hanged Bhutto also created the blasphemy laws that are currently revered by real Muslims.

    Remember also 20 September 1996, when Muslim Murtaza Bhutto was killed by anti-Islamic forces. These anti-Islamic forces were in fact employed by the Police of Pakistan.

    Or for that matter 16 October 1951, when Muslim Liaquat Ali Khan was shot by anti-Islamic forces.

    We’ll ignore the Lahore mosque attacks of 28 May 2010 for they were aimed at non-Muslim Ahmadis. Ahmadis are not part of the Ummah and I can see no fault in mindless violence against them. Inshallah at this rate there will be no more Ahmadis left to worry about in the next ten years.

    I have sympathy for all the real Muslims (Ahmadiyyas, this does not include you) who have been, and continue to be, slaughtered by anti-Islamic forces throughout the history of Pakistan. Pakistan can gain salvation only by tightening its border such that only Real Muslims are allowed in. In the meantime identify, brand and deport all non-Muslims.

    I can also be sarcastic like you but I don’t want to stoop to your level.

    Where did I say that violence against non-Muslims was OK? I am saying that all violence is bad but a Muslim killing another Muslim is doubly bad. It is fratricide- a brother killing a brother. Can’t you understand this?

    Brainwashed western zombies are unable to understand the real nature of anti-Islamic conspiracy. They are busy doing psychological and political fellatio on their American- Zioninist- Hindutva masters. In this they are worse than their masters. At least their masters are open about their enmity toward Pakistan and Islam. However these brainwashed treacherous pseudo Muslims are destroying Pakistan from within. Their designs will inevitably fail.

    Pakistan Zindabad! Allah- hu- Akbar!!

    Some comments from the ATP Facebook Page:

    - “If you looking for mercy in Pakistan forget about it. It’s too late, my opinion is let them kill each other, we need some million people get kill & then they were realize, what’s happening in the battle ground.”
    - “Hum Qatl ho rhay hain lekin jo qatal kr rhay hain wo ham main say nai.. They are foreign funded mercenaries who should be kicked out.. The only religion they have is money !”
    - “In the line of Martyrdom, A comparative Analysis

    There is a much debate going on among the different walks of life in condemning suicide bombings and bombers labeling the culprits as the brutal murderers of innocent civilians
    I dare not to criticize the condemnation of suicide bombings, not at all……
    Instead want to project my own opinion (correct me if I am wrong) in comparative account of psychological mindsets of two opposing parties in a battle field of FATA region both hailing from common faith and nation-state.
    A Suicide bomber (mostly 16-22 in age), ready to tie up a bomb with his body and blow him up preferably in a crowded area killing tens and hundreds of civilians around is basically inspired with the spirit of jihad or revenge the sufferings of his near and dear ones in the name of alleged terrorist or simply the collateral damage. His sacrifice is a violent struggle against the existing pro-west anti Islamic government. To him, this suicide bombing and its aftermath is a pressure tactic mounting on the government institution to pressurize them for the change of their respective policies which are triggering such incidents. Thus, A suicide bomber, a fundamentalist, an insurgent, a militant/terrorist, an effecte of war on terror or any other suitable title (for that matters) is moving towards his death with the pride of sacrificing his life in the line of martyrdom and his way towards the eternal peace.
    On another hand, take the example of a uniformed soldier of Pak Army or from any law enforcing agency of government, fighting with the spirit of nationalism against whom, he have been told, are working on anti state agenda aiming at destabilizing his country. The soldier with the enthusiasm of safeguarding the ideological foundations and geographical integral limits of his homeland fights for ensuring the writ of government in a region is proud of moving towards his death in the line of martyrdom to find the eternal peace.
    Now, suppose a battle field, where both the fighters confront each other in open armed violent opposition, we could categorically segregate the phenomenon as,
    • Fundamentalism versus Patriotism
    • Islamization versus Nationalism
    • Revenge versus Duty
    Out of the above two extreme ends, one thing is common, the spirit of martyrdom……

    Whatever may be the list of root causes between both the physiological mindsets,
    Whatever may be the most appropriate and convincing justification for their approaches
    At the end, it’s a fight among
    • Missionary versus Missionary
    • Muslim versus Muslim
    • Pakistani versus Pakistan
    I often find it a stranger fact that a war with origination from 70’s and 80’s between the two super powers of the times got modified into a one fought today in FATA region of Pakistan where A Pakistani Muslim Missionary is murdering another Pakistani Muslim Missionary and claim to fight in the line of martyrdom…….”

    What a shame when muslims want to kill christians they accuse them of throwing koran on the ground and profaning the prophet.

    What happens when a muslim attacks a masjid and kills people in the religious gatherings in the mosque or in a funeral where someone carries a koran and prophets name is recited.
    No one uses this term then that gam and gusa was the result of the event. Just thinking.

    Yet there will be people who will side with Al Qaida. Yet there will be people, amongst us, who will say that this is a freedom fight. These same people recite Quran every day and claim authority on the Quranic text. But these same people fail to understand the greatest book on earth. They read it, they learn it, they revere it, idolize it, protect it and die for it, but they refuse to UNDERSTAND it. Too bad that some non-muslim elements (Al Qaida) take advantage of these brain washed people and make them do the unthinkable…blow themselves up along with 100s of other muslim thinking they are doing God a favor.

    The enemies of all religions of the world…burn in hell, if you believe there is one.

    @asim:
    suicide bombers may be illiterate without internet access, but is that also the case with the security establishment and the generals in the ghq?

    why is it that no one wants to say the khari baat? neither the author, nor the commentators.

    what is the point of all this lip service and crocodile tears?

    is it not true that these goons who are now blowing themselves up and killing a lot of defenseless, innocent, civilians, wereonce cultivated, trained, and supported by the national security agencies, with full tacit approval of the ghq, to support their own agenda about which the ordinary citizens of pakistan and their families – now paying the price with their blood – were never consulted?

    is it also not true that neither isi, nor mi, nor ghq would touch their assets in fata and southern punjab regardless of how many people get slaughtered on the streets?

    will someone explain to me what is the pupose of writing all these hollow blogs?

    @Aziz:

    It is indeed very iconic that we lost all our rationality when talking about the suicide attacks.
    Naive people are claiming that the ulema do not grasp the full text of the holy book and they do?

    Let me put a simple test. Just read the first verse of the surah e bqarah, then read its meaning, and compare your understanding of the meaning with that written in ay authentic tafseer, say tafseer e usmani.
    For that matter, i am not sure how many of us even know the exact meaning of the word Rub, which we use in the five prayers in surah e fatiha?

    The point is simple that as we continue to follow the advice of experts in all fields ranging from accountancy to medicine, we should adapt the same approach when dealing with the religious affairs and should give weightage to the opinion of a person in line with his religious calibre.

    I wonder how many of us know the exact heirarchy of course work for ulema that signifies their level of grasp over the religious affairs. In the absence of this knowledge, we simply remain unable to know which level of religious hierarchy the person speaking to us belongs to, and thus what we do is listening to a matric student for a black hole theory and end up concluding that he is not saying the right thing! Not just that, we go further to blame that all scientists in effect do not know any thing about the black hold theory at all, and we Do!

    Cmon people!

  25. Asad says:
    March 11th, 2011 8:20 pm

    And who will not condemn such acts?

    What we cry over is that we continue to search our way out without being rational enough!

    We need to stand even closer to our ulema in these testing times so that we may not get astray.

  26. Asad says:
    March 11th, 2011 8:23 pm

    And last thing, how do we take credit of such wrong doings?

    If Mr A does this, and sends a letter in in the name of Mr B?

    I do not negate, but i urge to keep open a window of sanity, rationality, a window of possibility. . .

    I do not have any hope of this getting fixed in my life time. For the past 30 years of my life that I have witnessed myself, we have not only allowed but honored all the religious and political leaders/mullahs to spread the message of hate againts India, Israel, America, Russia, Ismailis, shias, sunnis, punjabis, pathans, sindhis, mahajirs. All this hatred for everyone else has taken strong roots by now….it will take generations to wipe clean all the brain washing that had taken place in the past.

    Every muslim is the only true muslim.
    Every body else is nonmuslim because he/she could be doing some thing against the religion if seen through the microscope by any body else.
    If we are to follow the fundamentalist principle that non muslims must be eliminated, then every body must start killing everybody else.

    Long live fundamentalism or long live human common sense?

    Recently i heard an american professor give an incisive and in-depth analysis of Pakistan’s dangerous double-game in providing safe havens to afghan taliban and al-qaeda leadership and channeling US dollars towards funding them.He admitted this funding could not be sufficient and that the remaining funding of taliban came from poppy and through money from arab countries to jihadi seminaries.When asked why poppy could not be eliminated, he gave the pet reply that immediately ending the crop would further destroy rural economy so there had to be a gradual replacement with other crops etc.;the other reason in failing to eliminate reliance on poppy growth was corruption and collusion of afghan govt officials.What professor failed to answer was whether part of massive expenditure on war on terror could not be used to support local rural economies and enhance govt pay, and based on both could poppy not be eliminated?And for poppy grown in taliban controlled areas couldnt the international channels through which it is traded be busted?Also all arab countries were US/western allies so couldnt they be prevailed upon to stop funding seminaries for certain period?Professor’s reply was that US is considered all powerful, but is not.It can persuade arab countries from desisting in funding seminaries in pakistan but cant stop them, unless it opens antagonistic fronts with them.Also arab ngos and private businesses fund seminaries too.Similarly it cant bust all international drug cartels and their transaction channels overnight.And who was funding taliban who attack main cities of pakistan and govt and military installations? Professor’s view seemed to be that all taliban are interconnected.So apart from money that goes to seminaries from arab states and private individuals the money going to afghan taliban from pakistan forces and drug money also channelizes to taliban who are against pakistan govt.So based on professor’s narrative, pakistan is playing double-game with US and int’l community, and may be taliban(even though divided into different groups )are playing double-game on pakistan(getting support to sustain war in afghanistan and using part of it to attack and weaken pakistan itself).I thought how dumb the professor must assume the pakistan military planners(or the audience) to be?!He could have simplified his complex equations by simply factoring in another double-game that everyone mentions and then dumps as another conspiracy theory, that of US and the few countries that count as ‘int’l community’. But why should double-game of Pakistan alone be an exception to this conspiracy theory black box?So the oft repeated conspiracy theory that drone attacks are continued to flare up extremism, funding channels through poppy and arab sources are allowed to operate unhindered, and augmented with other funding sources and logistic support by USA and through other countries like india and israel interested in defanging pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, seems more plausible to me after hearing the pot-holed theory of the professor.how far is the day when martyr bomber tries to infilterate a nuclear installation?a martyr sinning by committing suicide, sinning by likelier murdering innocent people on the way,and doomed to fulfill the ‘devil’s ‘ dream of eliminating islamic world’s only nuclear bomb, using devil’s pittance…
