What a shame really. The act of a few puts all to shame...
See how the world The Christian and Hindu have risen up against Pakistan? They are c0ndemning us at all and every single forum. When thousands of massacres and pogroms have taken place in India they have been effectively swept under the carpet. They are not even reported or recorded. What are the lessons here?
We totally condemn any violence and harm meted out to our Christian compatriots. The more we condemn the less it is. Even if it was the desecrecation of The Holy Quran nobody has any business or right what so eve to take the law in their hands. The perpetrators on both sides must be brought to justice and fast.
If it was an Indian pogrom (called riots to lessen the crime) it would not have got even the headlines. If Palestinians had died it would not have been mentioned too and if Kashmiris died at the hands of State Terrorism it won't even be reported 90% of the times. Muslim blood it seems is cheap. That can flow unabated while other Muslims in comfortable situations can relax.
The lesson is see how Christians stood up for Christians. I applaud their concern for fellow Christians. But we never do that. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims die just across the borders in India and we do not even react. See forums of Washington Post or NYT and all such forums you will find fantastic activity and all are busy condemning Muslims and Pakistan in this case. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/02/AR2009080202011_Comments.html
People have ganged up and pounce on every single opportunity to defame Pakistan and Muslims. But do we do it when India offers so many opportunities and kills Muslims and Christians. It is time to think and do something. Get active. Take up your your keypads and defend ourselves. Please.
