The day Benazir Bhutto was assassinated marked one of the darkest days in recent years in Pakistan. The whole Pakistan bled that day, people couldn’t reach home from offices, the buses, trucks, cars were attacked. The trains, the banks etc., all came under attack. Who were these people? Were they really in love with Benazir or were they the anarchists who were waiting for the signal (“as soon as she is killed, torch the country!”) to turn the country upside down. All of us know that the armed forces could have easily put the situation to right, where were they that day? Drinking to the dead Bhutto?
Today! It all came back to me. The horrific details of that day! Public property being the victim like always. And again the armed forces were only protecting the US embassy. Thumbs up Army! You are the best! Army has lost all the respect that it once had in the eyes of people, I wonder what they want to do with this country. I wonder what all of us want to do with this country. I’m no sure if this is the only way one can protest against the blasphemous movie. I don’t know, I think I’m one of those conspiracy theorists, who thinks that all of this is happening because “some people” want this to happen. Add your own men to the protesters, add a little glitz and glamour to the whole spectacle and we’d never get named! I’m just soo clogged up right now that I don’t know what to write on this anymore. When the Muslims were in power long long time ago, nobody dared to say a word against the Prophet (pbuh), not only that no one dared maltreat a Muslim for the fear what might be his demise. Now! Now… *sigh*
Anyway, today on the streets we saw rage against US, rage against the government, it’s funny and very ironic that when it would come to elections, these very people would chose all these corrupt leaders all over again forgetting that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that a momin doesn’t get bitten from the same hole twice.
