Why the Bomb Blast?

Yesterday’s Lahore blast in RA Bazar and Sadder Area can only be understood in the light of the fact that how have we reached the current scenario of Politics in Pakistan and who are the characters that are involved in it. So what follows below is my own analysis of the Country’s Political – Economic Situation.

Pakistan after its Independence, thanks to the many Influence left by the British, was a relatively modern country. Indications of this were the many social, and recreational facilities, and also the General mindset towards accepting these places. This example would include the many bars, cinemas, restaurants, and Cabire. Girls used to cycle, skirts and foreigners were common on the streets of Karachi, and not only that but the country was also one of the most hip places for Westerners and Hippies, who can be seen sleeping on the streets.

Most of the people in Pakistan who would read this would know how much it is stressed in our course books about the location of Pakistan in the World Map. You have India and then Afghanistan, Iran and China as your neighbors, but it is only recently that the importance of this country of ours of God knows how much population (All figures in this regards are guesses. The last consensus happened in the year 1998) has taken a serious impact from its location.

Lahore Attacks

LAHORE IS ONCE MORE UNDER ATTACK, AS MULTIPLE ATTACKS TOOK PLACE IN THE CITY IN THE EARLY HOURS, LEAVING 20 DEAD. THE PLANNED ATTACKS TARGETED THE SECURITY ZONES OF THE CITY, PUTTING SERIOUS QUESTIONS ON OUR INTELLIGENCE ABILITY

I am so furious right now.. and I am shocked right now. This is the country that can always be found bragging about how it can take over USA and India and Israel any day. And yet the situation in reality is that within a week, a certain pattern of attacks has continued, bringing the tally up to a 5.

3 attacks have taken place in Lahore, 2 in places that have already been attacked before, and despite warnings circulating of attacks in the Capital and in Punjab, the security preparations were less than perfect. Todays attack were targeted at the

  • ELITE POLICE ACADEMY, BEDIAN

Almost 7 people have been reported injured so far, and the search is still on for any more suspected terrorist that might be in the building still.

  • THE FIA BUILDING,

The building has been cleared and the injured have been shifted to the hospitals. A suicide jacket was also found from the vicinity. The last time the FIA building was rocked from its very foundations (literally) was last year on 11th March when almost 26 people and injuring almost 176 people.

  • MANAWAN POLICE ACADEMY, MANAWAN

At the Manawan Training School, grenades were fired, as a number of terrorist entered the building and started firing, while 2 suicide bombers blew themselves up. News is that the building is clear of terrorist. But then should the agencies be believd?

The recent attacks on GHQ tell us that the attacks on security agencies is being underplayed in the media. And there  is no certainty, in my mind at least, that there wont be news of the fighting continuing and the security officials being surrounded by the terrorist as hostages.

I am so furious right now, where the hell was our ****** **  intelligence? Where was the security? Where is 50%  of our budget that is used by these agencies going? What is it being used for?
