Humanity and forbearance in Pakistan fell from its high throne a long time ago but today, as the day marks just the 2nd week in the new decade, it’s wallowing in filth. Our ideology has relegated from goodwill to all men, to survival of the fittest
What impelled the construction of mental boundaries with terms like ‘Half castes’, minorities, Mud Bloods?
Who are the individuals giving birth to duplicitous moral uprightness? A new communal order where impressionable youths and hare-brained adults are easily brainwashed & blanched to the extent that they lose all sense…all COMMON sense of right and wrong?
Why is forbearance the first thing lost by people who join various groups? From seemingly innocent house wives’ groups of **-***** [name removed on request] to the institutes of various orders, why do normal human beings come out brimming with conceit and arrogance on their knowledge, or how many Ayahs and Rukuh’s do they remember more than the other commoners? Or their new found principals actually fed to them by someone else?
Has tolerance died a torturous death due to the pain inflicted over generations? A mind-set developed because of inherited oppression? What must have started with the Russian incursion of Afghanistan and spiked with the never ending Kashmir mayhem and goes on to the maltreatment of families in foreign lands – has that turned our conscience to bottomless pits of vengeance where the actual criminal is not the only one deserving penalty; but whoever crosses their path is.
It’s not just them, it’s all of us, our beginnings and foundations have lost its touch. The question remains, is it too late to turn back?
