Pre-poll Violence Marks Founder’s Birth Anniversary

I expected our Quaid’s birthday anniversary celebrations would make the headlines for the leading newspapers of the country but the morning newspaper today with headlines of pre-poll violence in the city was truly disappointing and heartbreaking for every single Pakistani including me.

But then we all know it for a fact that before every elections the blood shed of our fellow countrymen becomes a vivid ingredient of the voting process. It depresses me to realize how easily we take it to violence, how easily we lose our tempers, how convenient it has become for us to take the life of a fellow citizen, Is this the Pakistan our beloved Quaid-i-Azam envisioned for us? And it depresses me even further when I look at the common people of this country, striped off their basic necessities, health and education, their children after 60 years of independence, still unclothed yet they are the ones who proudly sacrifice them selves for an aged dream of a better tomorrow. Will our dreams ever come true ? Will our prayers be answered ? Sadly, I don’t have a clue.

    I don’t support MQM. But when I look around at the mentality of other Pakistanis, I can’t blame MQM alone.

    While corruption is still to blame for our mess but ethnic discrimination still holds firm grounds in Pakistan and is a prominent cause of our mess too.

    But we don’t have time to take care of our own problems yet we decide to help and be the mercenaries for others.

    I will do “bait” on Altaf Bhai’s hands if he can kick Sunii Tehrik and other nefarious violent reliogous parties (ok, leave JI for now) out of KHI. JI should be dealt with afterwards

    Sunii Tehrik and MQM they’re two sides of the same coin… both are involved in extortion kidnapping killings and other heinous crimes

    Sunni Tehreek ???
    they failed to get a single seat of councilor just on the directions of jamat e islami(though sect wise against to it) trying to sabotage the elections in karachi they knew they will loose and MQM knew it will be succeed as no strong apponent against MQM for now in karachi after JI boycott.

    MQM is the only power in Karachi that can get rid of these elements.

    It’s so good to see MQM posters all over and there’s this ‘feel good factor’ there present.

    The violence could only comes from frustrated groups like PPP and ANP and no-one else..
