How will the 14th August Celebrations Begin ?

Only two days left, and on the night 13 of August, as soon as the clocks will strike past midnight, shifting the date to 14, the independence day of Pakistan Celebrations around the country will begin and I am sure this year too like the last year in Karachi, we will resort to celebratory firing marking the first half hour of the independence day celebrations, of this land of pure with a gesture of violence which will leave several injured, and may be a few others dead just like we did a few months back to celebrate out victory in the twenty20 World Cup cricket.

Has violence become such an integral part of our lives that it has dominated our protests, arguments, jokes, and even celebrations ? Do we not realize how our irresponsible actions are disrupting the peace of our city destroying it’s warmth and sense of security and what a negative image of our country are we painting for the rest of the worlds ?

And please I know many of you will think this post somehow responsible to tell the world what faults we have, But really do you thing shoving the dirt under the carpet will solve any thing? Has it ever, till this date solved anything ? NO, It is about time we take ownership of our faults, accept them, address and confront them and eliminate them from our lives and tell the world what a wonderful nation we are.

I hope, this year midnight, 14 of August, 2009 the sounds which will fill the air would not be of gunshots but of national anthems and songs of peace and love. I hope this year we will celebrate the independence day of Pakistan in it’s true sprite of joy, peace and love.

    count the hooters of ambulances running around, and visit Govt hospitals to count the casualties and wounded by aerial firing to celeberate the AZADi which give all liberty to fire at others as a FREE citizen.

    In jungle lion hunt to KILL only when he is hungry, he never HARM innocent for no reason. Thats the law of Jungle,

    what law we have in Pakistan for safety & security of people is it practised on ground?? Thats a question on this August 14

    I do not believe in MADER PEDAR Azadi as generally ‘Celeberated’.

    so 14th August & 23 March is always a day of Prayers and seeking blessings from the Supreme Allah specifically for mader-ay-watan.

    come shababart then 13th august and it was dreadful evenings on both nights for everyone at home.

    Allah is been kind there is no mishap around

    @Wasiq thank you for asking, alhamdo lillah she is well by all means.
