The strategy to exploit sectarianism to expand the war and extend the rule is hitting us badly. Previously attacks on qadiyani worship places and now mausoleum of ali hajveri not only show the incompetency of our security institutions but also show how bad the policies pay which are made with a narrow mindset filled with greed and prejudice. The logics like “Masjid e Zarrar” which were floated in the masses when they attacked lal masjid in Islamabad,bombed madrissahs resulted in the killings of innocent children,women and men in tribal areas, all in the name of “War on Terror” has resulted in more terror. The policy of divide and rule is giving its fruits.
So called nationalism and sectarian backed liberalism is hitting us bad. We really need to find a peaceful way out of this war. The war has strongly damaged our social fabric, now the diversity and some academic and historical differences which were there in the form of different sects like shia,sunni,wahabi,deobandi etc have now turned into a clash. All this was done deliberately like it is done in Iraq, Afghanistan and even in this region during 1757-1857 British takeover of Indian Sub-continent. In all cases local corrupt elite in politics, mercenary forces or so -called intellectual classes played their dirty role. If Musharraf has to be trialed someday, this crime alone should be enough to give him an exemplary punishment but the problem is current Zardari-Kiyani duo is toeing the same policies.
Whether innocent people are dying in drone attacks, military operations or suicide bombings the historical fact is they don’t add to the cause of peace but result in more terrorist activities which lead to more military operations and so this vicious cycle of death and fear is going on and on with no real directions.
We strongly oppose the innocent killings in the name of war, revenge or in any name. We demand a peaceful way out of this imperialist war against peace, humanity and justice.
Just a message for all:
“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” (Al-Maeda:8)
