The sad story of us!

Two three days back, 5 Pathans were killed around our areas, which didn’t only cost for most of the businesses to close down early, but also for the Pathans to rush out of the area to places where they can be safe and not be targeted like a dangerous animal out on the loose.

A day or two later, I was downstairs getting some errands done, when a gentleman, with a darhi comes in and starts talking about the latest state of the nation with the shopkeeper. He comments about the recent target killing as well, saying how truly sad it was.

It was at that point that I started thinking and which even the shopkeeper voiced out in his own words, that there is no way that you can expect a change in this country.. in a country where its own citizens can’t feel safe, and where a particular state is being branded for who should live in it, then how can you expect the change to come. The gentleman that came in that shop might be against the targeted killing of Pathans, but what would be his viewpoint about the killing of Ahmadi’s or Shia’s is what I would really like to know!

Some one once said to me that religion was an important invention (yes I did say invention) because it made the society follow the path of righteousness even in the absence of law, but can we truly claim that to be true today. In a society where most would argue that it is okay to kill the person who we consider to be infidel, how is it that one can even take asylum in the arguments of religion?

So I guess this is our sad story.. we can’t expect religion to bring the best out of us, and as a society there is no chance that we can correct the errors of our way, so I conclude that there is absolutely no hope for us.. you can disagree though!

    Perhaps one way to judge a religion is what its results are in its believers. If God really is responsible for giving us the knowledge of right and wrong, then would He not expect His worshippers to live by this same standard?

  2. See I have never blamed any religion for what it produces simply because I firmly believe that religion is never literalo, it needs to be interpretted by a whole group of people who can understand religion, history, politics, society, etc.. So blaming God is not an answer.. I am sure he did his best, and yes he would have expected us to live in a certain way.. but what is happening today requires for one to go much deeper and understand the root of the problem!

  3. God created human beings for love, but they choose to hate. They all want to be stronger than everyone else.They will use anything as a justification to hurt, kill, and rape. Of course they will use religion for this end if they can. Of course they will say that God wants them to kill the people who don’t agree with them.
    I believe that God is love, and that He loves all human beings. I believe that He does not want me to kill people who disagree with me. On the contrary, He may want me to die to save them, if possible, not to destroy them! God created the world. He could throw all these hate-filled murderers into hell this very second, but none of us are perfect, and He loves us all. So that is why God himself literally died for us. This is not because He is weak, but because He is loving. A true martyr gives his life for his enemy, in hopes that the enemy may become his brother. This is kind of self sacrifice is the only weapon that will ever defeat the self-centered murderers.
