Lahore and Noshera Bomb Blast – 12th June 2009

Up till now almost 7 people have been dead and around 100 injured.. the number no doubts would be rising as the day passes on.

Today was Friday- or Jumma – and muslims this day gather to be able to perform their religious ritual. The Juma prayer has a great significance in the Muslim world, and it is this freedom that we fought for 60 years ago – the freedom to perform our religious task freely.

But not only have we proved that we fail as Muslims, we even fail as Humans.. and each day passes us by we fail ourselves more and more.

I remember reading in Karen Armstrong’s book “Breaking the Curfew” that Muslims have always felt that since they had the laws of God, they didnt need to abide to any lower form of human laws, that is why you would find so little respect for traffic laws, and the kind.

I think that the world that we live in today proves her point more and more every single day. We are not humans, we can never call our selves human, and maybe now even God won’t take us. We must have lost our respect in his eyes a long time ago. We are bodies roaming this earth, with no proper word to describe our barbarity.

The scholar killed in the Lahore Blast, Professor Sarfaraz Naeemi was one of those few voices that spoke out aloud against the barbarity of Talibans and openly declared them non-Muslims and maybe this is why it was very important to have these voices be silent.

It is shame, we bring shame onto ourselves everyday.. this world is hell, and we burn in the fire of hell everyday.

Attacks on the SriLankan Team

It is incredible that in a country where more than 50% of your budget is spent on army and intelligence – that is excluding the pension of the retired officers – we have, in this age of terrorism failed to stop one plot. What have they been doing with all this money.. what is the use of spending such a monstrous proportion of our budget on something which has yet to show its capability?????

And today was the highlight of our intelligence’s incompetence.. Where were they .. how is it that these people .. THESE 12 PEOPLE… are hiding among flowers with rocket launchers and grenades and nobody notices them.. considering that Liberty roundabout is a busy node… HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE… And how did they .. HOW DID ALL OF THEM.. actually manage to escape so easily at such a rush hour…..

I am still baffled by today’s events.. how can this happen.. why wasn’t there more security personnel…

As for the Sri Lankan’s, i apologize to you from the bottom of my heart.. we condemn this as a nation… and do not own these acts of violence.. These people are neither muslims and neither are these acts Islamic.. in case that is the justification given……

This act of today would have ripple effects that we would come to regret.. it is these acts that would destabilize Pakistan ….
