“They disappear without a trace. Their families exist in torturous limbo. They lay awake wondering about their loved ones’ whereabouts and condition. Terrifying thoughts come to their minds evoking tears and a jolt to their heart. Their meaning of life altered. Forever”

Since the start of the US led war on terror in 2001 hundreds of people have been illegally picked up from Pakistan. Amnesty International has stated that Pakistan has detained hundreds of alleged terror suspects without legal processes. It has been speculated that some were tortured or otherwise ill-treated, some were sold to the US military and others vanished without a trace. Some of the missing were Al-Qaeda suspects but others included innocent women and children. The families of missing persons in Pakistan have been running exhaustively in search of justice and information about their loved ones. They see no light at the end of the tunnel.

For too long us Pakistanis have remained silent as things around us spiral out of control. If you want to make a difference, it is time to stand up, be heard and be counted, for history will never forgive us for being indifferent to the plight of our people.

Join us to protest against the forced abductions of the citizens of Pakistan and demand their immediate return to the country.

‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Being Liberal–>Random thought

Being liberal now a days has become the following of certain actions and ideas. Being liberal means your thinking process is liberal and you can accept other
people as a reality even if they wear veil or not, are bearded or not and so on.people with myopic fascist ideas now a days consider themselves (they have the right but i disagree) liberal by condemning every actions of so called conservatives or so called religious class. I don’t know how one thinks with a liberal mind when he confines his/her thoughts in the boundaries of left and right, liberal and conservative, mr. and mullah, sufi and non-sufi and other stereo-types.

France and Switzerland leading their way to religious suppression

Recent referendum in Switzerland to ban mosque minarets and legislations in France to put curbs on Muslim women to wear hijab shows how hypocrite the so called civilized governments have become.

They claim to be freedom lovers and liberal minds but in actual their actions show their myopic fascist ideas.

I hope their are sensible people in those countries who will condemn such things.
