Written during the days of Nazi Germany, after the rise of fascism, but can relate to the world today as we are perhaps moving to a more deadly situation in our world and in Pakistan.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Strongly condemn this act of brutality. This is madness and what else can a person expect in a war mode. This war really sucks , it has broken the already weak social fabric and is destroying all values. Pakistan seriously needs to revise its policies in this war and come out of it. This is destroying our country and we are in a real self destruction mode.
