Jamat-ud-dawa the banned jihadi/militant org is holding a public jalsa today near Mazar Quaid. It is very interesting that the state apparatus is actually facilitating such an organization. Jamat ud dawa which is accused of being a cover for LeT and itself works under the cover of Falah-i-Insaniat for humanitarian work not only freely promoted their campaign recently in Karachi but there seems to be no questions in media on this. Whole KHI seemed to be at the helm of JuD for wall chalking and hate-filled Texts. All this however doesn’t send a +ve signal to the world which accuses PAK of giving state protection to groups or org involved in militant or terrorist activities. Below is one of the promotions near Ayesha Manzil. I wonder how come it was allowed ?
For many years now, even before few people were even admitting we have a “Taliban-Jehadi” mindset issue I was one of those lone souls over internet voicing my concern on the growing TALIBAN-Jehadi mindset. When I often use the word Jehadi mindset people misquote it as targeted towards only some conservative Mullahz or Militant organizations
This is not the case. Words like “jehad” and “talib” have a +ve literal meaning but it’s unfortunate that one has no other way but to use the same words to point out a particular mindset in society which is hell bent upon eliminating every opposing view point. I have been at the forefront at KMB on criticizing militancy be it any party or group but my TARGET is not just groups but a MINDSET. This mindset is related to the idea of rejection of “difference of opinion”. After PNS Mehran attack PAKISTAN agencies, the historical GOD FATHERS of terrorism in PAK and especially the formation of MILITANT groups for their vested interests have first time taken the brunt of “taste of their own medicine” at a BIG level. It’s sad that they had to reach this low to understand what a snake they have fed for decades and if they don’t stop harboring militantly for one pretext or other i.e “Strategic Depth” or “Good Taliban – Bad Taliban theory” PAKISTAN will continue to go down the hill. However, for now, this Frankenstein Monster has penetrated so much deep in our society that every TOM DICK and HARRY has become a judge of everyone’s faith. And to convince society on a particular “opinion” different methods are being applied, one such you can see in this video. How come the local police doesn’t know whats being thrown out of these loudspeakers? If terrorism has to be rooted out, the main question is not the guy who is spreading hate speech but the “lack of action” by the LAW. What is that “mindset” which has made our society “happily” and “conveniently” agree to let such speeches vomited? That mindset is the Question.
