When will this sickening systemic annihilation and killing and genocide stop – killing our own in name of God knows what – how sick is that? And then they take out rallies for drones and afia siddiquies. The chain of sanity is no more applicable! We need to rise up against these sick elements who think they are above Islam and righteousness! Enough of their twisted interpretation. There cannot be dialogue here. Join hands.. its us or them if we want to survive and enjoy an ounce of respect in world.

As Hassan Nisar pointed out, in Pakistan, Muslims kill more Muslims each day, than the killings in the entire remaining Muslim world.. a very disturbing fact, and yet, such facts and suo mottos are like rain drops in this country..

How can the non elected, the ones with no mandate at all so blatantly pass judgement that democratically elected government cannot pass legislation? Who are they to take a call on people’s mandate?
If only judiciary tried to focus on clearing years of backlog of cases in all lower Courts rather than over-using the suo mottos and taking politically famous cases only.

Are suo mottos exclusively reserved for political & popular cases? What about the legal framework and its backlog of hundreds of thousands of cases? What about those 6000+ women in jails on account of false testimonies? What about land mafia / grabbing cases? And MOST Importantly in the past 5 years, 30,000 plus people have succumbed to the terror acts but no wonder, there was no suo motto. Hypocrisy & double standards of the highest order!
I think it’s about time we contacted the Guinness World Records’ team. We might just hold he record for most number of suo mottos!

Deaths in Balochistan, killings in Karachi, blast & deaths in KPK.. Where are we headed? Why is life the cheapest and everything else so expensive? What would it take for us to value life? Nation? Elected governments talk about protecting democracy, but are least bothered about the death of its subjects?
Although people declare democracy as the best revenge, but Democracy is of the people, by the people, and for the people, and that doesn’t leave room for revenge. It’s a choice. What alternate does revenge have as a counterpart in a choice? Forgiveness? That’s the irony that those forebearers and self proclaimed custodians of democracy are just busy confusing the choices!
We are busying critiquing marches, walks, speeches, assessing and analyzing words, but where is the unity to expedite change? First change is the will to understand and acknowledge the gravity of issues.

An eye opener thought provoking, factual tale and trail of blood spills of systematic murder over 400 years. Those who cry about Hitler’s holocaust or talk about atrocities in east Pakistan really need to go through this book. – Umar Rahman.

Pakistan Cricket Team’s 2-1 victory, India vs. Pakistan, 3rd ODI, Delhi, January 6, 2013:
For all those messages and posts pertaining to belittling of opposition in first half, let us remember to be above the bar.

We cannot be better than the opposition unless we are graceful and above them in patience and humility on the field.. and more importantly off the field.

How many of these Delhi incidents and cold blooded murders like that of young Shahzaib khan happen everyday around us. We need to stand up to this and say enough. Not just for them but for all others and for ourselves. Be the change! The change this country and world needs!

Democracy! One person, one vote, with no safeguards. How effective is it without education? How can we expect the right choices without knowledge, information, assessment and so soon?
Patience, trial and error is the only way forward to actually make it work and last! Eventually aristocracy & its dominance would fade with spillover leading to the transformation of proletariat into bourgeoisie.
