Let's have a quick game

Just saw this image published at a cricketing website with the caption:

Homeless children play cricket after being displaced by the Taliban, Swabi, Pakistan.

I say, while in Pakistan, they are not homeless.They are displaced from warm holdings of a house to harsh surroundings. Internally Displaced Persons(IDPs). They are not homeless because Pakistan is their home. And ours.

Which is why we should think of their displacement as our own. Fell their hurt as our own. See their struggles as our own. All Things Pakistan (ATP) has setup a way for expats to quickly contribute towards this larger cause. Please do your bit, if you have not already.

After silence of months to aid these IDPs, fortunately, media is speaking now. Please come forward to help our fellow Pakistanis who are displaced from their homes, for us. Lets join hands to have our beautiful lands back. Inshah Allah.

    What Muhammad Ali said in one of the comments here piqued my interest: what if India had behaved in a similar fashion in India – that is force the entire population of Kashmir, which is not more than 1.5 million, and then use fighter planes, helicopters and other bombardments to clear the valley of militants, how would we have reacted?
    No really, how would we have reacted?
    Tough to face our own hypocrisies, isn’t it?

    I am wondering why India did not have such an Idea for Kashmir. Which our government and army has used that first take all people out of their homes and then destroy all the area with tanks, jet planes and helicopters. No one will lose this war neither taliban nor army nor usa nor govt of pakistan. The only loser will be people of swat and people of pakistan.

    When Western media having thier own personal interests started shouting that Talibans are only 70 miles from Islamabad , even them we Pakistanis used to laugh about this nonsense.Few thousands terrorists can never rule over 170 million.

  5. being displaced by the Taliban, Swabi, Pakistan.

    While the truth(which ignorants prefer to accept) is that these people were replaced by The “Pak” Army people rather than “militant” Talibans who have been there for years. I will not condemn a foreign side like Cric Info while our own people having fun by burying their heads in sand. One could read Fatima Bhutto’s recent article about Talibanization Myth(or phobia) in Pakistan
