Our Woes and Foes

Is not this high time we, sincere Pakistanis, got our thinking straight… and decide where it all went wrong ?

1. We may have provided them with refuge, and a congenial breeding home ground for their life time settlement. With our traditions of being the greatest hosts, we may have supported our guests in getting them work and let them practice, the only thing, they knew… warfare.

2. May be we have been deceived by the long beards and the continuous recitation of the Holy verses of Qur’an , without even their knowing the meaning or true interpretation of the Words of Allah.

3. May be we forgot that our religion teaches us the most precious lessons of tolerance, peace and harmony. Although, we say “Salam” (Peace) as we meet anyone yet we found inspiration in those who were all up against this very word.

4. May be we were deceived by their anti-Christian, anti-Jews, anti-Hindus and anti-any-Non-Muslim attitude and found it very similar with what our religion teaches us.

5. May be we thought that having such uncontrolled warriors in our homeland, will be a source of security at our borders as we were not sure of our own army’s strength.

6. May be all that seemed right, at the time, when we decided to tread on the path of patronizing warfare in our tribal areas only while being our peaceful lives in urban centers unaffected.

BUT TILL WHEN…. will we not see the ground realities, the misery and grief, inflicted upon us , by the presence of our most “revered” and “protected” foreign guests?

NOW… the signs of the times insist that we should look back and think for a while.. what was not right in what we did.

1. We provided them a with a place for refuge for a temporary period… not for ever …and definitely not to practice and teach their gun battles skills on our land of the Pure, to our upcoming generations.

2. We took pride in giving respect to those long beards and their recitation of Holy Qur’an, although we had no dearth of true believers and practicing Muslims within our own people. Instead of understanding the words of Allah in the true sense, we mistook it, and believed and practiced how and what was interpreted by them.

3. We held these migrants from across the border in great esteem, while growing hatred and hostility toward our own residents, Sindhis, Pukhtoons, Muhajirs , Biharis, and many others who had been living here and had contributed a lot in the development of our country.

4. We failed to realize and still do so, that why our citizens would create havoc and easily carry out such bloody & barbaric massacres ?

5. We were blindfolded by the huge amounts of foreign aid to counter terrorism and tried to play games with international community, never knowing that they could easily find our “open secrets” and embarrass us in our face and leave us in ever more dangerous situation.

6. We are now witnesses to the barbaric acts of these reckless anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jews, anti-non-Muslims … as they apparently kill less of those and more of their fellow Muslims.

7. We now know that it was not about the preaching or promoting our religion or values… but a massive drama of creating terror, securing wealth, and finally establishing an undeclared parallel rule on the land.

When will we wake up? When will we stop sympathising with these foreign elements with a pre-set agenda? Are we waiting for them to reach our streets and doors and blow them up ?

Have we given up, lost all hope and choose to be their hostages?

Or do we have to resist and fight back?

Why should we have to suffer for big mistakes made by some selfish and irresponsible idiot government officials, who played with our nation’s image and destiny?

Think no more.. Things are very clear. Its time for action..

Stop supporting them, even morally…..

We deserve more help than them now.
Wake up Pakistan !!!


  1. The question is, who will wake us up? Are we waiting for a 'great leader' or 'an innovator' to lead us. Isn't all of it enough for us to stand against our disguised enemies. I am surprised to see the reaction of our public. The fact is that we as a nation have become selfish, cynical and materialistic. We just play blame-game and feel our duties are over.

  2. You said

    "May be we have been deceived by the long beards and the continuous recitation of the Holy verses of Qur’an , without even their knowing the meaning or true interpretation of the Words of Allah."


    Have you read complete Quran with Translation ?

    Do you know that if you only go back 100 or 150 years back Jews, Christians mostly had long beards..?

    Do you pray 5 times a day regularly ?

    No one is allowed to comment on Islam, Quran or Long Beards unless he fits in all the above perfectly.

    Our prophet Muhammad (SAW) was a Muslim, He knew Quran and its meaning, he prayed 5 times and Tahajjud regularly, and he had a very long and big beard covering his chest.

    So did his friends.

    Do you know Who brought these people in our country ?

    Who paid 85% ticket fare for the mujahideen from Saudia to arrive in Islamabad ?

    Do you know who was sponsoring camps and weapons for these people in Pakistan ?

    Do you know who trained these people in Pakistan & Afghanistan ?

    Very Sadly, but I must say, Pakistan (We) forced at that time to support and also send our youth with these people to die for something other than Islam...

    And now we are blamed if they are hiding in our land, we are between 2 evils and are paying a very high price for it.

    There is only 1 solution to all the problems Dear sister.

    We do exactly as our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his friends did and we succeed in this world and hereafter insha'Allah.

    If we not, then we have no one else to blame.

    Allah bless my Pakistan & Islam. Ameen

  3. The very next question is whom to target...??

    Have we really pinpointed where those who are behind all this are ???

    Do you think it's a short battle against a small group of militants now ?

  4. The whole nation is in denial. unfortunately. We are not ready to own this war, we still believe its not our war.
    Many people raise the question as who brought these terrorists and who trained them? We all know the answer but does this answer solve the problem? Right now this question is irrelevant, the question is how to defeat this monster. We will first have to admit that this is our war, the terrorists are killing our brothers. Unfortunately a segment of media is playing a very negative role, just to sell their air time, some opportunist anchors are further spreading the hatred and thus radicalising the youth. We should get out of conspiracy theories and should try to look straight at the mirror instead of exploring whats behind the mirror.

  5. the lack of planning and i mean long term planning has brought us to this situation. now if there is anything done by us unplanned will lead us to more fuss. we have to wakeup, yes we should, but also make some decision keeping all the short terms and long terms plans in mind and we must include all the stakeholders in the board for such decision. we have reached to this place because of the decision of one man and yes dictatorship is the source of all the bad we face everyday.

  6. Love the simplicity and straighforwardness among other "little things" that will guide us to real big results. Thanks for taking time to share it with us.
