Lal Masjid and some frustrations of a desi!

After the government stormed the Lal Masjid in Islamabad, there were statements coming out from some extremist religious camps that this was just one and many others like the lal masjid would crop all over PK. I and ever other Pakistani must have cringed at this statement.

What happened to there is no compulsion in religion? who has assigned them the right to enforce morality? Like all God fearing/ God Loving Muslims I strongly believe my actions will be judged by Him or as die hard feminists may say Her.  If that wasn’t enough OBL’s group now wants Jihad against Musharaff and asking all Pakistani’s to rise up. Please sir keep out of the country’s business.  So just because the government stormed the mosque and fought the “hostage takers” you want us to fight him, what about all the suicide bombers that go inside mosques and kill people?? what happened to your being a Muslim then?

Its frustrating to see all of this happening. Come to think of it, maybe we should just blame Zia for all of this, after all he’s the one who helped/ supported the US in the Afghan war, and then welcomed the millions of refugees that live all over Pakistan today.

But I will not let my optimism be reduced by all these frustrations. I have said and will continue to say there is hope for the country and for our future, we just need to get our act together. After all the western states were not built in 60 yrs, it took them hundreds of years to reach where they are today.

over and out.
