To Jinnah, with respect.
On your 65th death anniversary Mr. Quaid, I write with a heavy heart where your visioned country is heading to.
Violently murdered, some dead bodies targeted today now rest in peace. But their families have got a lot to suffer.
Your land’s daughter, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is still there, imprisoned. Nobody will pay heed to her or her children’s cries.
Shahzeb Khan’s murderers have been set free, have been ‘pardoned’ now by his family after a long struggle of both parties; the murderers and the murdered.
Our president has changed and we now welcome Mr. Mamnoon Hussain to rule over us. Only with more hopes yet less expectations.
We are labelled as ‘terrorists’ and so we may remain, because entire systems are now judged on the basis of a set of people.
Those that try to rekindle hope are not known as optimists, they are called fools. Because others want them to be as hopeless as they themselves are.
May your soul rest in peace and may we be able to find ‘peace’ in this world.
Just discovered today’s writing prompt: Thank You – The internet is full of rants. Help tip the balance: today, simply be thankful for something (or someone).And this goes fine.
