The ‘Steel Will’ Boy!

When this boy grows up, hopefully as a successful man in life, he would have all the rights to claim he had been through hard times. Still donning the blue-check school uniform’s shirt he wore in the morning, half way through the fast, he is lifting an iron hammer equal or even more than his weight as his senior enjoys a relatively easier task of placing the steel on the right mark.

    He is probably one of those who go to a gov. run school in the morning and then do some evening duties in locality or other place all over the city.

    Indeed when he will grow up depending upon where luck takes him he can either be a hard working man who learned howto stand on his own feet without any help or he can land into a bad company and with shortcuts difficult to resist for people of his class he can be a criminal at the end.

    It will greatly depend upon (1)the tarbiat at his home (2)At garage or place of work (3)the company he will keep (not different from his own) (4)Bit of luck (4)His will to continue doing working hard instead of shortcuts.

    I remember our Prime Minister Malik Meraj Khalid mentioning in his interview that he use to sell MILK in his teens because he had nothing to eat.

    Nice post

    Let me make few guesses here:

    There is a 50 percent chance that the kid’s last name is Khan

    There is a 50 percent chance that the kid’s name is Muhammad.

    There is a 25 percent chance that the guys full name is Muhammad Khan. I believe 25 % Pakistanis, and Indian and Bangladeshi Muslims are named Muhammad Khan. Pretty stupid if you ask Balma. We need somone like Emperor Akbar again who had put a ban on the use of name Khan, ahmed, Mustafa etc. for Indian Muslims (He didn’t ban Muhammad, perhaps becuase his own name included Muhammad)

    Let me guess that he has 7 or 8 siblings.

    Let me guess his father’s name is Muhammad Khan too, perhaps same is true for his grandfather if he had more than one name and was not just called ‘Muhammad’.

    He probably does not go to a normal school (i.e. madrassa in urdu).

    He probably goes to Jamat-e-islami sponsored school, or some school called Iqra XYZ or XYZ Iqra, or some mulla type madrassa. Even though I hate these types of schools, for the mentality they promote..but at least the kid will hopefully learn to read and write few things.

    Also, let me guess most people looking at this picture or this guy in real life think it is great that Muslim population and Pakistan’s population is exploding like hell.

    Most people looking at this picture think that number matters. Whether most muslims are the jahil most people of the world does not make a difference to them.

    Auntie Farhat Hashmi and Uncle IsrarAhmed -o- Ramooz will not do anything for him. Auntie Farhat Hashmie is actually after the educated and well off Muslim girls. She is after destroying the prospectives for success for those girls who could be future mathmatecians, financiers, engineers, and radiologists. she rather destroys them then do some thing real for kids who have real problems. Down with Auntie Farhat Hashmi.

    He is unfortunate to be in such circumstances. The country, the society, his relatives, parents, everyone else is blinded by religeous fanaticism but won’t do any thing to improve his life.

    Qayamat kay aasaars if you ask me.

    the most stupid comment i’ve ever seen, that too in one of the best posts ever.

    First of all, wtf is your problem if his name is Muhammad or Khan or Mustafa or anything, that is his parents decision and none of your business.

    Secondly, your comments about people giving guidance to others are beyond any norm of decency. Farhat Hashmie is not destroying thr lives of young girls but rather teaching them something that will help them in this world and the next. Frankly, i would much prefer if my sister went to heaven rather than win a nobel prize.

    And talking about signs of qayyamat, i think one of the main reasons we are going to the dogs is that idiots like you are roaming free and bainwashing innocent people who might not be very knowledgeable.

    This one statement of yours is reflective of the thinking of the entire Muslim population. No wonder there is hardly a Mulsim (may be two at the most) who has ever won Noble prize in science, or any noble prize.

    As mullahs say: hum nay aakhirat apnay liyae choon lee hae, aur dunyaa nusraaniyo’n aur yahoodiyon kay liyaee choRRe dee hae.
    Great going guys and girls!

    After being regular on KMB, i am having a strong feeling that one of the major problem of our country is the confusion of religion, whose Islam is the correct one, that one who hate Israr Ahmed, the one who listen to everyone but do whatever the desire, and the one who don’t listen to nobody.

    I am horrified by the thoughts and concepts of young generation abt religion. May Allah guide us to the right path.

    Throw the religious and all that crap aside for now.

    Just think about his education and health first which is more important.
