Phoppo

I used to be jealous of my cousins(maternal) beacuse my mum used to light up every time she used to see them and in turn they were head over heels in love with their phuppo (aunt). An they used to eat from her hands, sleep with her; she uses to tell them stories and they used to play together. It was not as if she never did everything with us but we were grown ups while her nieces and nephews were very young (still are). The point I’m trying to make here is that it seems as if a special love is there in her heart for her nephews and nieces. And now that I have my own nephews, I can understand that special love because it fills my heart with joy and pride and the feeling is just unbelievable.  It seems as if somone has filled your heart with this emotion that is not only unfathomable but also it cannot be contained in my bosom.  The joy of being a mother is something miraculous but the love for the kids of my brothers is just… it is incomprehensibly miraculous as welll… clearly a sign of Allah as He fills your heart with love of other people.  🙂

Bleak Future

tIt’s been few days now since all of us felt immense joy when MQM leader was arrested in Britain. And since yesterday, the joy’s been eaten by the terrorist attack on Quaid-e-Azam International Airport in Karachi! It’s been one whole day now and some people are still stuck inside the old terminal. The whole episode made me sad, angry, furious as I cannot fathom the fact that they let the building burn and took no notice of it! I just want to smash the heads of all the authorities in question with metal chair! I know I don’t seem right in my mind but how can I be? Don’t all this effect you in anyway? It is killing m from the inside that all those “jialas” who lightening earthen candles with their blood two days back just because Altaf Hussein gave blood for tests, can’t come upfront and save their people! This is how dead we are to feel the pain of people burning inside that building!

The whole episode raises serious questions and I am sure none of our leaders; either of political parties or security institutions, will be able to answer. Why don’t DG ISI resigns from his job for this utter security lapse which has made a laughing stock of them? Aren’t they suppose to claim responsibility for such breech? Will no one com upfront and admit that it is their fault. Karachi, which is so under MQM influence, where MQM has amazing intelligence network, couldn’t see it coming? Why doesn’t Governor Sindh resign? Why doesn’t he admit that it was under their reign something this serious has happened and they should stop taking government’s money when they are not able to perform their duties. Or maybe they are just there to fill their pockets with people’s money! 

Some questions that need answers and that raise concerns:

1. Why is Nawaz Sharief so dying to go and having ties with India when clearly Indian weapons and injections were found with the terrorists? Indians haven’t stopped blaming and accusing Pakistan for Mumbai attacks, so why are we so dying to have soft policy where we should be dealing things with iron hand?

2. When we have earlier faced attacks like that of Mehran base, why didn’t anyone make extra security efforts? 

3. When soldiers were killed in Salala camp, when US took Ben Laden from Abbotabad, when India blames Pakistan for Mumbai attacks, why doesn’t army reply to any of it? Why can’t you stop drone attacks? Why do they always think that operation is the key solution where clearly it is not! I don’t even think that all these people heading the institutions of Intelligence, security forces and others are all uneducated lot as are our Prime Minister and Presidents. How can they make things right when they don’t understand them!

4. Stop congratulating each other and ask yourself, why did we let it happen in the first place? Why did it ever came to this point? Why couldn’t we stop it even before they entered the airport premises. 

I’m just so angry right now! Khel samjha hua hai mulk ko! arghhhhhh!

“na samjho ge tu mit jaoge aye Pakistan* walo
tumhari dastaan bhi na hogi dastaanon mein”
